The Serpent energy
The serpent in tantric tradition represents Kundalini. Kundalini is an energy that is inherent in all of us. It represents our infinite potential of being. She is the feminine creative energy also known as shakti. This energy lies dormant at the base of the spine, until it is awakened. Kundalini is coiled like a snake 3.5 times, the half representing infinity no ending and movement towards greater and greater expansion, reminding us that this energy represents our own infinite nature. Once kundalini is awakened she rises upward along the spine, making her way through each chakra, clearing any blocked energy and revealing our greatest truths, balancing until she eventually reaches the crown. When this potent energy has reached the crown chakra a deep experience of unity occurs and our consciousness expands. This is where we experience our limitless nature. Our creative potential is unleashed. Great vision can download and our power to manifest that vision becomes effortless as we are working in synch with the nature or a “higher power.”
Kundalini energy is the mother energy she is like a sweet dance of ecstacy, rising like the cobra, she is the vessel from which the goddess awakens. She allows us to experience greater states of bliss and all sensual aspects of life. Through the practice of meditation, kriya and breath we are able to awaken kundalini and integrate it into our daily lives so we can live to the fullest potential.
