This is also made clear by a changed energy flow in the body. In addition to the Prana - life energy and the Apana - cleansing energy, the Kundalini energy is of particular importance. Kundalini means snake. This symbolism is conspicuous in connection with the Aesculapian staff of the ancient Greeks, which also represents a snake and is still used today as a symbol of the medical and pharmaceutical class. From the ancient yoga sources of the Indian Vedas, the snake is described as the guardian of the earth's treasures. In the Old Testament of the Bible is that

2 Snake the temptress who makes Eve eat the apple of knowledge. In the context of yoga we speak of consciousness energy or the nerve of the soul. This nerve can be awakened. Everyone has the disposition of Kundalini energy, but not everyone has to use it. Kundalini incidents in children are not documented, so the Kundalini can obviously only be used in the course of puberty. Since the corresponding processes take place in the area of ​​the 2nd chakra in the pelvis, it can be assumed that this energy is related to sexual energy, which does not appear until puberty. In fact, the connection between consciousness and sexuality has been described many times, albeit under very different circumstances. In red tantra, sexual energy is used to raise awareness. In white tantra the same energy is obviously used, but in a different form. There is no sexual contact here, but there is a strong cleansing of the subconscious. In many yoga traditions, sexual abstinence is recommended so that Kundalini energy can flow freely. Yogi Bhajan believed that sexuality was okay, but not too much. He recommended sex once a month. In his lectures, he described the relationship between the seminal fluid and the ojas, the fluid that flows in the spinal cord. The Ojas are directly related to the Kundalini energy. When the white fire forms in the area of ​​the pelvis due to consciousness expanding events, this energy can either be used to awaken the Kundalini power, or it flows into a sexual discharge. Each person makes the decision for himself. For some people there is no Kundalini activation. When there is no need to expand consciousness, this form of energy remains in its dormant state in the 1st chakra. It rests there in three and a half turns around the pelvic sluice, which in men is on the perineum between the sexual organ and the anus and in women in the same place but a little further inside the body. Those who do not awaken their Kundalini are part of the material world without setting their own impulses. The question arises to what extent the soul can exist as a reference point of the self if someone assumes that he has no soul. In such a mental state there may not be any flow of energy that would indicate the existence of a soul.

3 The life cycles, however, often call for an awakening of consciousness and bring most of them to at least partially raise their Kundalini energy. Once the energy has risen, it cannot form back again. Consciousness, once achieved, is preserved for a lifetime. However, the energy does not rise completely (except sometimes in Kundalini accidents, see below), but it develops gradually. Most people do not notice this process because the mind gets used to new states of consciousness very quickly and then considers them to be normal. 2. The normal flow of energy in the body Normally, the physical condition that enables the Kundalini energy to rise develops gently and in the course of a lifetime. The three life cycles (7, 11 and 18 year cycle) play a decisive role. With a harmonious development of body and mind, it can be assumed that at the end of life the soul's potential is fully exhausted. Energetically means that the Kundalini energy flows 100 percent intact through the body. This energy is called the nerve of the soul. From the teaching of Yogi Bhajan (who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968) it can be deduced which energy flows in the body are important for this process. Prana - life energy (shown in red) and Apana - cleansing energy (shown in blue) flow through the body in energy channels (called nadis, in traditional Chinese medicine they are called meridians) and usually do not touch. There are nadis in the body. They meet in two places: 1. At the top of the head and the area between the top of the head and the hypothalamus in the middle of the brain. Here a connection / synchronization takes place between the nervous system, the glandular system and the energy system of the body. 2. On the solar plexus above the navel. Here is the vital power center of the body from which the energy flows are controlled. There are also some important nadis that are related to the flow of energy in the various organs and three main nadis or channels that are of central importance for the flow of Kundalini. Prana flows primarily through the Pingala side channel from top to bottom, Apana flows primarily from bottom to top through the Ida side channel. How

4 two elevators rise and fall, the two forms of energy in constant alternation between the two basic states of the human body: a. fight and flight - fight and flight, the body is filled with the vitalizing energy of prana, apana almost completely withdraws towards the ground. The hormone that goes with it is adrenaline. All body processes that have to do with digestion and excretion are stopped. b. rest and digest - resting and digesting, the body is in a state of rest and regenerates itself with the help of the cleansing Apana energy. Nerves and muscles are relaxed and hardly react to external disturbances. In this state, toxins can be broken down most effectively. 3. The body locks Bandhas (locks) are a yoga technique to support the flow of Kundalini energy. They are already mentioned in the ancient yoga scriptures of Patanjali, which are about years old. The use of these locks is an important technique for maintaining balance in the body. They have an enormous effect on the entire body-mind system. There are three main bandhas: NECKLOCKS Jjalandhara Bandh ZERCHFELSCHLUSE Uddiyana Bandh ROOTSLOCKS Mulbandh If all three locks are pulled at the same time in the correct posture and with the correct concentration, this is called the "big LOCK" (Mahabandh). The main goal of physical exertion in yoga is to create special abilities and a flow of life energy in the body and in the aura. This energy grows both quantitatively and qualitatively. It is then directed into a natural pattern,

5 which releases the healing powers of the body and the various functions of the mind. This process is significantly supported by the use of the body locks. With the neck lock, the chin is pushed back slightly so that the neck tenses a little. The face remains forward. This directs the flow of energy through the neck and into the head. With the diaphragmatic lock, the diaphragm is pulled up into the chest cavity. The flow of energy from the navel to the heart area is supported. In the root lock, the pelvic floor muscles are contracted and pulled upwards. This stimulates the energy to rise against gravity. In every Kundalini Yoga beginner course, the locks are practiced until their functions achieve clear results. By constantly practicing the locks, the gentle rise of the Kundalini energy is supported. 4. The merging of energies Yoga creates a connection that enables awareness. In order to generate Kundalini energy, Prana and Apana must meet and unite. In the normal human development process, this union takes place carefully in small steps throughout life. A healthy lifestyle, including physical activity and sufficient exercise, as well as regular cleansing of the mind through meditation or prayer are crucial. When a person's lifestyle (e.g. diet) deteriorates, it is also possible that the Kundalini energy decreases again. It is a very painful process. Normally, the energy level that has been reached once is retained. When Prana and Apana unite, the so-called "white fire" arises in an egg-shaped organ between the sexual organs and the navel. This organ is called the kanda. The White Fire is not hot, but it is very bright. It is a very grounding experience. A deep connection with nature and the planet is created. Those who are not prepared for this can easily be prone to arrogance and arrogance during this process, as the person concerned feels very powerful. Then the white fire overflows

6 the two reserve channels to the Mulandhara root chakra on the underside of the body. There is the seat of the Kundalini. The root chakra is one of seven energy centers that run along a line from the top to the bottom of the body. Each chakra is connected to a body's own gland and symbolizes specific psychological qualities. In men, the root chakra is exactly between the anus and the prostate, in women it is a little higher inside the body. Energy released, sometimes more, depending on how intense the connection between Prana and Apana was. After activation, the Kundalini rises through the Shushumna central channel. This is located in the spine. 5. Kundalini accidents: Spontaneous triggering of the Kundalini energy Kundalini in the root chakra The Kundalini energy circles the root chakra in three and a half turns in a state of rest. When the White Fire arrives, it will be activated. This activation takes place within the scope of the possibilities of the person concerned. Sometimes there is only a little Kundalini. At this point, a spontaneous Kundalini triggering can lead to complications, e.g. when Shushumna is not yet sufficiently purified to allow the Kundalini energy to flow through. Possible triggers could be: mind-expanding drugs improper excessive meditation or yoga practice ill-conceived practices for expanding consciousness sex injuries in the coccyx trauma great fear is problematic when the energy rises, but the body or that

7 nervous system are not ready yet. Then there can be a variety of physical or mental symptoms that can seriously frighten the person concerned.

8 6. How does the energy flow? When Shushumna is not cleansed enough to allow Kundalini to pass, it is possible for the energy in Ida or Pingala to evade. When the Kundalini rises above pingala, internal burns can occur. If it rises above Ida, there is a possibility of cold shock. Both have already been described many times, but the variant with pingala seems to occur more frequently. The Kundalini can also get stuck in the Shushumna itself, namely in one of the three so-called knots (grantis), which roughly correspond to the body gates (bandhas). If the Kundalini gets stuck in one of the knots, the subject of the sluice must first be mastered before the energy can continue to flow. The first knot is called Brama Granti and it is at the level of the navel. In order for this knot to pass, the 1st and 2nd chakra must be well developed. That means: no more attachment, no addictions and one's own inner prosperity must be activated and balanced. If the Kundalini gets stuck in one of the Shumshumna locks during a spontaneous ascent, it is a very uncomfortable feeling. The issues in question are now emerging with force, causing a number of psychological and physical complications. The person concerned is under strong pressure to quickly let go of the relevant issues - here attachment, addiction, security - or to realize this, which is often hardly possible due to the inadequately prepared nervous system. With a gentle Kundalini ascent - e.g. in connection with Kundalini Yoga - these issues come to the surface more gently. The second knot in Shushumna is called Vishnu Granti. It is located above the diaphragm. Here the 3rd and 4th chakra play the decisive roles. The ability to receive and give love must be developed so that the Kundalini can pass this knot. In addition, the themes of power, violence, anger and assertiveness play a role

9 a role. It is important that the person in question rests in their own midst. The opening for group consciousness and the realization in groups is necessary at this point - at least mentally. The third knot is called Rudra Granti or Shiva Granti. It is located in the middle of the head below the 3rd eye. The 5th and 6th chakras play a role in this knot. Is the communication conscious and in balance? Is the intuition developed? Is the ego - the self-awareness - ready to put itself in a larger context and thereby to question itself? 7. The perception of unity When the last knot has also been mastered, the Kundalini flows through the so-called golden cord from the 3rd eye (6th chakra) to the 7th chakra. In this phase of the process there is a deep connection to the top, to the cosmos and to divine energy. The I-Consciousness connects with the Universal Consciousness. Once there, the Kundalini opens the so-called tenth gate at the tip of the head in the seventh chakra, which corresponds to the pineal gland on the physical level. Unity can be experienced. According to yogic teaching, the pineal gland or the pituitary gland is responsible for the experience of unity. Limits and restrictions dissolve. This experience can take the form of an entertaining state or, for example, with continuous yoga practice - to be experienced as a permanent perception. Here the perception of unity manifests itself. When the Kundalini energy has risen, it can be preserved in almost all situations. In the Indian tradition there is the idea that a bowl with amrit - healing and happiness-giving nectar - is waiting for this moment on the tip of the head. When the Kundalini has opened the gate, this bowl turns around. The healing Amrit-Necktar flows through the 10th gate unhindered down the body and activates all energy centers, organs and chakras. This is a feeling of absolute oneness and connectedness with everything. A very happy moment.

These exercises are Kundalini Yoga meditations taught by Yogi Bhajan ().They have the power to change behavior and thought patterns. In order to be effective, they have to be carried out precisely and precisely as described in the texts. Unless otherwise advised, it is best to do one meditation a day for 40 days. This is the time it takes to break a habit. If a meditation is only done once, it is an inspiring break into everyday life, but permanent change is not to be expected. in front of the teacher in me. Repeat this two more times. Now meditation can begin. To tune in, chant the mantra SAT NAM, with long SAT and short NAM in one breath. The meaning is: Truth (SAT) is my name (NAM). Repeat this two more times. Further information: Further information about Kundalini Yoga and about yoga exercises that promote the gentle ascent of Kundalini energy can be found on the Internet at the following address: Kundalini Yoga Basic Text No. 1 Kundalini Ascent At the beginning, it is common for all Kundalini Yoga exercises to be guided attuning to the inner teacher. To do this, sit cross-legged with your back straight, close your eyes and sing the mantra (Indian sound word) "ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO" with one breath. The meaning is: I bow to overcoming the darkness (GU = dark, RU = light), I bow to Sangeet Singh Gill July December 2014 Kundalini Yoga as it was taught by Yogi Bhajan.
