Kundalini Shakti resides in a coiled form (also known as Serpent Energy) at the bottom of our spinal cord. Once the Kundalini Shakti gets “diksha” (direction), it starts flowing from the bottom of our spine where the brain can completely alchemize its energy into vital hormones and higher spiritual energy. Once a full Kundalini has been awakened, it completes the circuit from the genital parts to the brain through the spine.
