“Chakras are the major centers of spiritual power in the human body and are circles of energy which balance, store and distribute the Prana, life force, or vital energies of life through our physical body along the subtle body.
Through meditation, and various esoteric practices, (such as Kundalini Yoga, Sahaja Yoga, and Kriya Yoga), the kundalini is awakened, and can rise up from the muladhara chakra through an energy conduit, called Sushumna, inside or alongside the spine and reaches the top of the head.
The progress of kundalini through the different chakras leads to different levels of awakening and mystical experience, until the kundalini finally reaches the top of the head, Sahasrara or crown chakra, producing an extremely profound mystical experience.”

Kundalini means ‘Serpent of Light’ and is the energy situated at the base of the spine, when activated or awakened it travels up the center channel of the spine and is the means through which the seven major chakras mature. When the kundalini is activated and reaches a certain frequency it travels through the chakras with such intensity that it creates and instantaneous union between the soul and the divine source via the crown chakra. This process of Liquid light transmutation was explained in Vedic and Tantric teachings , to be able to achieve higher states of consciousness.

This is a piece i’ve been wanting to flesh out for suuch a long time! I know it’s kinda cliche and all but i just really love the ideas behind it all. Its one of those energy systems that iv'e always known about - how could you not? but it wasn’t until i met my partner’s brother back in 2010 that i really got intrigued by it all again - (he’s right into all that side of things and continually inspires me to push with my art). It fascinates and amazes me how many aspects of that information can be translated across into different cultures/texts or ideas..all those ideas about energy, prana, vortex’s, the different levels of consciousness or moving through dimensions or different aspects of your-'self’..it seems i keep circling around the same themes over and over..and yet im ALWAYS learning something new.
This seemed like the right time to get this out.
