14 Jul Awaken Kundalini Energy, Cleanse Your Chakras
Aligning your chakras to heal body and mind
Chakras. The word alone is enough to conjure images of ancient Indian yogis sat in meditative repose. It speaks of the exotic, perhaps even the unfathomable. But chakras are far from this. They are very much a part of you, of all of us. They are centres of energy that reside within our physical bodies. Often neglected in our modern lives, there is great restorative power to be gained by aligning your chakras. It’s a transformative feeling that words cannot quite capture. It is a kundalini awakening.
Alignment brings awakening
There are 7 chakras that relate to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Starting at the base of your spine is your root chakra and working upwards, this is followed by the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat and third eye chakras, with the final chakra seated at the top of your head, the crown chakra.
Through these chakras flows the universal energy that connects us all, energy that is disseminated via your chakras to the physiological networks spread throughout your body: blood vessels, nerves, and hormone-producing glands.
Your chakras are not tangible in the traditional sense. They won’t show up on an x-ray or a CT scan but do correspond to clusters of nerve cells located along our spines called ganglia. These energy centres shrink and expand according to the energy flow through them and this has a very real impact on your wellbeing.
Many of us go about our daily lives unaware that our chakras are out of alignment but paying the cost for it nonetheless. Take your root chakra, for example, when unbalanced it can manifest emotionally as rage, insecurity, and fear and physically as constipation and even addiction.
When your chakras are in balance, aligned along your spine and activated, energy can flow unimpeded through your body. Your chakras essentially form an energy superhighway. This is the kundalini awakening, a rush of energy which can produce intense feelings of euphoria as you connect to and experience the infinite love of the universe around you.
Although this moment of true connection is fleeting, its impact can have lasting, transformative effects. For many, a kundalini awakening redirects their lives toward more humanitarian and philanthropic endeavours. For others, it is the beginning of a path towards self-love and healing, the point at which they find new purpose in and passion for life
Bringing about alignment
Kundalini yoga has long been used to activate the energy coiled at the base of your spine, sending it upwards through your chakras, activating them and bringing them into alignment. However, aspects of the motions of kundalini yoga that bring balance to your chakras have been incorporated into many and varied practices. Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ is one such practice that aims to release energy blockages and bring about rejuvenation, emotional healing and stillness of mind.
