Kundalini is your dormant superpower according to yogis. Want to know how to wake it up? Here are four ways to unleash this energy!
Kundalini is a concept that can be found in ancient yoga texts. Loosely translated, it means ‘coiled up’ and refers to a spiritual life energy that sits coiled like a snake at the bottom of your spine waiting to spread throughout the body. Knowing how to stimulate and manage this power would ensure that your personal battery is always full. Sounds good, right? Discover in this blog how to work with kundalini energy via:
- Meditation with Chakras
- Kundalini Yoga
- Kundalini Reiki
According to yogis, kundalini is the greatest force of creativity in the cosmos and comes from Shakti, the Indian mother goddess. Myths say that while in the form of a snake, Shakti created the whole world. After all that work she lay curled up and rested for a while. Once she had recovered, she climbed the mountain where her wise husband Shiva was meditating and told him all about her creation. For many yogis, this story symbolizes the connection between power and insight or between doing and thinking. According to them, Shakti gives the energy to cheerfully and consciously achieve your goals. You just need to learn how to be a spiritual snake charmer!
People who try to awaken kundalini usually work with Chakras. According to yoga philosophy, these are seven energetic points that are spread over your spine. Kundalini, for example, can be found coiled like a snake at the bottom of the spine, at the red Root Chakra. On top of your head would then be the Crown Chakra where Shakti would prefer to crawl towards. According to experts, there can be all kinds of obstacles along the way that prevent the power from moving upwards. That is why yogis and healers spend time clearing their entire energy system, for example by using Chakra Stones during a meditation. Visualizing Chakra Colors can also help clear the way for the nourishing power of Shakti!
Kundalini yoga consists of a series of exercises or kriyas that are intended to master life force. The best known practitioner of this method is Yogi Bhajan. During kundalini classes, special mantras are chanted and meditations are done, as well as breathing exercises and postures similar to hatha yoga. The most important session of the day is the sadhana that takes place two hours before sunrise. Also characteristic of this form of yoga are teachers and participants who dress in white and wear a turban. White would help to stay aware of your own energy. Yogis believe that the turban keeps kundalini in the body and prevent headaches after class.

The mantras below are usually heard during a kundalini class, but they are also nice to practice on your own. These texts evoke creativity and awareness! Chant them, for example, when you have lost contact with Mother Earth, are in a slump or need some inspiration. Tip: Use a Mala for extra effect!
I salute all that is and salute the wisdom within me
Truth is my being
Ra, Ma, Da, Sa, Sa, Say, So Hung
Sun, moon, earth, eternity, everything, we are each other
O the wondrous divinity! What a life! Hurray for this existence!
Kundalini Reiki is a variant of the traditional Usui Reiki Healing and focuses on strengthening personal life force. Someone who works with this form of Reiki has received initiations to guide the ascent of kundalini. He could also pass on universal energy to you, treating the blockages in your chakras. For many people, such a session is a kind of kundalini massage, it releases waste energy and replaces it with fresh life force!
Other spiritual traditions also have ways of stimulating creative energy. Think, for example, of Tantra Yoga where you generate female energy through meditation or Yoni Massage. Taoists also knew where to look, that’s why they came up with all kinds of Yoni Egg Exercises with which women could train their pelvic area. So what are you waiting for? Awake your snake.
