Kundalini is described within Eastern religious, or spiritual, tradition as an indwelling Divine feminine energy that can be awakened in order to purify the subtle system and ultimately to bestow the state of Yoga, or Divine Union (e.g. see Jnaneshwari Ch. VI). This awakening involves the Kundalini moving up the central channel, piercing the Chakras along the way, to reside within the Sahasrara Chakra above the head (see for ex. Jnaneshwari Ch. VI). This movement of Kundalini is felt by the presence of a cool or, in the case of imbalance, a warm breeze across the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet. Such a phenomenon can be seen to be described in a diverse array of scripture (see Aquarian Gospel of Christ, ch. 44, v19, ch. 161, v35, ch. 162, v4; Jnaneshwari, ch.6; Ezekiel, ch. 37, vs. 5-6: Old Testament; John, ch. 14 vs. 15- 17 & 25: New Testament; Koran, sura 24, vs. 24; sura 35, vs. 9; sura 36, vs. 64; see also Descieux, 1998iii.). It is through attention to these sensations that areas of difficulty can be identified and ‘worked on’ in order to strengthen the meditation. 
Once ‘Kundalini awakening’ has taken place and is established through meditation the Kundalini is said to automatically purify the subtle body and thus dispel all mental, physical and spiritual diseases.
In order to achieve the real state of meditation, one needs to awaken the Kundalini energy within. With the support of Kundalini, meditation becomes effortless and easy. You will experience this precious moment of Kundalini awakening in our 10-part free Online Meditation Course.
Kundalini is the mothering energy that is lying dormant at the base of the spine in the sacrum bone. This energy is awakened by a process called Enlightenment (Self-realization) to connect us to the Divine and begin its work of healing and balancing our chakras.
Kundalini lies dormant but, like a tinybseed when the conditions are right, can awaken and grow into a mighty tree. In the same way that an electrical cable connects a computer to the mains, the awakened Kundalini connects the human awareness to the all-pervading power of divine love. The Kundalini can be thought of as a rope with a thousand strands; when we first get Enlightenment (Self-realization), only one or two strands find their way through the chakras and reach the Sahasrara (the top chakra). However, with twice daily meditation, gradually more strands of the Kundalini connect us to the divine power and the experience of meditation becomes more profound and blissful. The Kundalini was described by Indian saints such as Adi Shankaracharya (c 600 a.d.), Kabir (c 1500 a.d.) and Jnanadeva (c 1200 a.d.) amongst others.
There are many forms of yoga in the world today. There are stretching yoga’s, exercise yoga’s, prenatal yoga’s and even laughing yoga’s. It seems that there is a form of yoga for every walk of life. Most people think of yoga as stretching or they see it as an exercise. Yoga is in fact an ancient Sanskrit term meaning to unite or union.
