"Chakras are the major centers of spiritual power in the human body and are circles of energy which balance, store and distribute the Prana, life force, or vital energies of life through our physical body along the subtle body.Kundalini means 'Serpent of Light' and is the energy situated at the base of the spine, when activated or awakened it travels up the center channel of the spine and is the means through which the seven major chakras mature. When the kundalini is activated and reaches a certain frequency it travels through the chakras with such intensity that it creates and instantaneous union between the soul and the divine source via the crown chakra. This process of Liquid light transmutation was explained in Vedic and Tantric teachings , to be able to achieve higher states of consciousness.
Through meditation, and various esoteric practices, (such as Kundalini Yoga, Sahaja Yoga, and Kriya Yoga), the kundalini is awakened, and can rise up from the muladhara chakra through an energy conduit, called Sushumna, inside or alongside the spine and reaches the top of the head.
The progress of kundalini through the different chakras leads to different levels of awakening and mystical experience, until the kundalini finally reaches the top of the head, Sahasrara or crown chakra, producing an extremely profound mystical experience."
