Kundalini is basically energy. Loosely translated from Sanskrit it means “coiled energy.” Kundalini is often depicted as a snake, coiled up in the base of our spine, at the root chakra, waiting to be awakened. According to Ayurveda, it is reddish in color, like the root chakra, and as the energy moves up the spine it changes colors with the chakras. As we grow spiritually, kundalini gradually awakens, we have more clarity of thought, and the body becomes strong and healthy. To encourage this awakening, it is helpful to live an ayurvedic lifestyle, and to practice yoga and meditation.
