Learn the essentials of the subtle body or kundalini yoga. Kundalini yoga is a classical art and science that deals with the conversion and development of consciousness, the rebirth and rising of the Kundalini energy up the spine by energy centers known as Chakras. The triggering and balancing of the chakras is done by the process of blending and merging of Apana (eliminating energy) with Prana (cosmic energy) which results in a pressure that forces Kundalini to go up, by use of Bhandas (body locks), Pranayama (breathing exercises), in Kriyas (exercise sets), applying Asanas (postures), Mantras (sacred sounds), and Mudras (gestures).
Also, the Mudras (gestures) make use of Projection, Visualization and Focused Attention to achieve particular effects. Extreme focus is essential for spell casting.
By practicing the Kundalini Yoga, one can unite their consciousness with a Cosmic Consciousness on a daily basis by accurately doing the exercises and reflections in a specific progression and blend. A scholar shortly becomes proficient at understanding the movement of energy in and outside of his/her anatomy and consciously starts to direct its course to excite and arouse the chakras, for treating himself/herself as well as others, and grows to be a co-creator with the universal energies.
The common terms related to the kundalini yoga.
Prana is the primary life force that is in the food we consume and the air we take and the performing of Kundalini Yoga improves its absorption. Apana is the power or energy to give back or eliminate. When both forces are great enough to combine and generate heat or tappa at the navel focus, the eat produced falls on the first chakra consequently awakening the Kundalini.
A group of single or more postures or exercises in combination with chanting, pranayama, visualization, locks and projection in a specific order made to generate particular effects. Since the Kundalini is quite old, the overall effect of kriya is bigger than the combination of its parts.
This is a posture made to stimulate organs, glands or body awareness and to silence the brain for meditation. The Asanas usually use pressure on acupressure points or nerves, bouncing back to the brain and body for particular effects.
This is a position or gesture, normally of the hands, that secures and directs energy reflexes and floe to the brain. By crossing, curling, pulling and touching the hands and fingers, we can speak to the mind and body, since each part of the hand reflexes to a specific part of the body or mind.
The muscular contractions employed for the preservation and directing of energy (Apana, prana and Kundalini).
These are the points of exchange between the non-physical and physical energetic measures of our being. They transform subtle Prana into physical energy running via a system called ‘nadis’ as well as the meridian system. Chakras are power vortexes regarded as revolving discs of light found along the spine.
This is a word in one of the divine languages or in some case in English, which modifies or elevates consciousness via its rhythm, meaning, the sound itself, tone and the tongue on the palate or reflexology.
Breathing techniques to lead and guide the flow of alter and prana consciousness
We may be requested to focus on the spine, gaze at the nose, the breath, a chakra, a mantra, and physical functions on anything outside the body. The focus grants us the strength to hold many things in the mind at ago and to centralize and sustain our energy for health, creation, and healing.
