Kundalini is energy. It is the primordial energy within each of us. It lies dormant at the base of the spine, until it is awakened. This happens spontaneously for some and for others it is the work of long hours of meditation and spiritual work. There are complex explanations of the chakra system and lengthy lists of symptoms and dark nights of the soul ,all of which might hinder one from taking this journey. However it is a journey we are meant to take. Everything in nature contains within it, the seeds for its evolution. For us humans, our evolutionary seeds are contained inside this kundalini energy.
