Kundalini: The Hidden Energy of the Spine

Kundalini is considered to be the most important force in the human body.

This is because (according to Vedic texts) Kundalini is what gives us the power to move; it’s energy comes from nothing less than the soul.

In Hinduism and Buddhism, Kundalini is inseparable from spiritual living.

But Kundalini doesn’t just pertain to “spiritual” people; it effects everyone.

Everyone’s energy is constantly moving up and down the spine: every human being is naturally progressing on the spiritual path according to their own purpose and design.

The Nadis of the Spine

There are 3 main energy “tubes” (known as nadis) that run up and down the spine: the Ida, the Pingala, and the Sushumna.

The Ida lies to the left of the spine, and corresponds to the left side of the brain and left nostril.

This is the lunar energy, or feminine energy inherent in everyone.

The Pingala is on the right side of the spine, and corresponds to the right side of the brain and right nostril.

This is the solar energy, or masculine energy.

Directly in the middle of the spine, between the Ida and Pingala, there is the Sushumna.

This is where the Kundalini energy resides.

How This Rising Energy Changes You

Kundalini is making slight shifts all the time; but when there is consistent movement and it’s directed up the spine, it’s totally different.

This is why certain yogic techniques were created.

When Kundalini energy moves up the spine, the brain’s chemistry is changed.

This is because the peaceful and blissful effects of yoga can powerfully change our moods.

Over time, this rise in Kundalini leads to enlightenment.

As Buddha described, this is the experience of non-duality…a state where pure reality is experienced.

How to Lift Kundalini

The energy within the Ida and the Pingala are both moving freely as we breathe, but when pranayama (breath control) is practiced, Kundalini begins to move up the spine.

Of course, you can also raise the Kundalini with Yama, Niyama, Kundalini jewelry, and asana- but it’s not quite the same as breath control. 

Remember, the energies in the spine are connected to the breath; this is why pranayama has the most effect on the movement of Kundalini.

Therefore, meditation is the most effective way to raise the Kundalini force.
