How to Awaken Kundalini Energy - Mondays with Maya

Hello friends!

These past couple of weeks we've discussed what Kundalini Energy is and what happens when Kundalini Energy is awakened but now it's time to discover how to awaken Kundalini Energy so that we can get the full benefits from this amazing experience!

How to Awaken Kundalini Energy - Mondays with Maya

One of the most potent ways to awaken the Kundalini Energy is using the mantra "SAT NAM" which literally means "truth is my name". When you use this mantra, you're calling on the truth, the inner guidance, the truth about life. When done correctly, this exercise activates the 70,000 nerves in our diaphragm, stomach and core area and this is how we wake up the Kundalini Energy. Here's how to do it: -

1. Put the hands together and intertwine the fingers, with the index fingers extended and pointed upwards (the left thumb on top of the right for women, and the opposite for men). Raise the hands above your head as far as they will go.

2. Inhale and pull the stomach in as you say "SAT" (squeezing in the Mula Bandha) and when you say "NAM" you push the stomach out and down on an exhale. Try to bring this sound from the naval and not from the throat (see the video for explanation).

3. Continue for 3 minutes, or 7 minutes and work your way up eventually to 11 minutes.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
