According to yogic knowledge, we all have masculine and feminine energies within us. The feminine energy is called Shakti and the masculine energy is called Shiva. Ultimately, the goal of Kundalini practice is to elevate the Kundalini energy through all the chakras and to unite Shiva and Shakti in the crown chakra.
The Kundalini meditation technique that awakens the inner Kundalini energy is based on ancient tantric practices from India. It is classically taught that only an enlightened guru or guru can awaken the inner energy of a devotee.
Some of the techniques used to awaken the Kundalini Shakti are to look or touch the guru and cast a life mantra from that guru's lineage. You can browse sewallhouse.com/kundalini-yoga to see Kundalini yoga poses for meditation.
As soon as the Kundalini Shakti awakens from sleep and the journey to the spine through each chakra begins, there are a number of different meditation techniques that support its development.
One of the main techniques is chanting sacred mantras, especially those that awaken your inner Kundalini energy. Repeating this mantra will take you to a place of subtle and deep silence within your own being where the Realm of Absolute Existence will be revealed to you.
There are also Kundalini Yoga meditation techniques such as chakra visualization which nourishes the Kundalini energy as it purifies each energy center. This beautiful visualization focuses on the mandala or energy pattern in each chakra and pays homage to the deity who inhabits each chakra.
