Kundalini Yoga Meditation is a practice based on awakening the energy of Kundalini Shakti. It is said that the Kundalini Shakti energy rotates like a snake three and a half times at the base of the spine.
When the Kundalini energy is awakened, it rises up the spine until it penetrates the seventh chakra at the top of the head. When this happens, bliss and sublime knowledge arise in the meditator's field of consciousness.
The meditation practice of Kundalini Yoga awakens the energy of Kundalini Shakti as it nourishes and sustains the awakened energy as it rises through the chakras.
The technique of chanting the Kundalini Shakti Awakening Mantra is also possible without Guru, but the result is akin to driving on a slow and winding ring road rather than flying on a super highway. Kundalini yoga is the effective yoga retreat educated in the Sewall House.
When you receive Shaktipat or the bestowal of divine grace from a living guru, the awakening energy will be much stronger than when you try to awaken the sleeping Kundalini energy yourself.
As the Kundalini Shakti penetrates each chakra, emotions and memories are also brought to the surface, allowing the devotee to understand and integrate each experience from a more compassionate perspective.
