In order to understand the technology behind the awakening of Kundalini Energy it is essential to understand a number of concepts related to the flow of energy in our body.
Parallel to the physical body systems (such as the circulatory system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, etc) are the subtle energy systems These energy channels do not transfer and process oxygen, sugar, protein, etc., but an energy called Prana.
Prana energy is divided into 5 sub-energies, also called the 5 Vayus (Vayu is wind in sanskrit) those sub energies are : prana, apana, samana, udana, and vyana each sub-energy has a different function.
The two energies that are involved in the mechanism of Kundalini awakenings are prana and apana.
The prana energy is responsible for everything that enters our bodies (food, sensory information, etc.) and is represented by our inhalation.
The map of those energy channels is known by many different names but the principle is always the same. In Chinese medicine those energy channels are called meridians, and in the world of yoga they are called Nadis.
1. Sushumna Nadi – the central energy channel, parallel to the spine and reaches the Crown Chakra located at the top of the head.
2. Pingala Nadi – right side, masculine element, sun, active, linked to the right nostril.
3. Ida Nadi – left side, feminine element, moon, passive, linked to the left nostril.
The opening of the Sushumna Nadi stimulates the awakening of the dormant Kundalini energy and it begins its journey upward. In its awakening, the Kundalini energy flow through the subtle energy centers (Chakras) that are located along the Sushumna, transforming each of these energy centers.
The journey of the awakened Kundalini ends in the Crown Chakra, with the activation of the pineal and pituitary glands.
