Know as the Kundalini, which is pictured in yoga as a coiled snake resting at the base of the spine, waiting to be awakened through spiritual practices. However, this kundalini energy is spontaneously catalyzed every month during the bleeding time, creating a strong psychic experience for many women, even though we may not have known what to do with it!
Over the course of a woman’s life, there are many opportunities for such spontaneous awakenings of the kundalini energy, which is believed in India to belong naturally to women.
The kundalini itself is often depicted or discussed as being a great snake who is a goddess, and when awakened, “she” rises up your spine through your chakras or energy centers, bringing cosmic consciousness and supernatural powers called siddhis.
