How has Kundalini remained hidden in our culture for so long? Perhaps Kundalni has been calling us for a very long time as the most common physical complaint: back pain! Has our masculine health system been suppressing Her call?'
Three realities of spinal health
Those experiencing lower back pain usually do not breathe into their abdomen - we call this 'guarding'. Rather, they breathe into the chest.
Often this chest-breathing pattern will be persist, even after their pain has subsided.
This chest-breathing destabilises the lower-back, leading to further likelihood of issues.
The foundation of lower back back rehabilitation is abdominal breathing, yet not many physiotherapists or chiropractors take the time to correct their clients breathing.
Evidence shows movement to be the critical factor in healing lower back-pain.
Our sedentary, chair-sitting culture has lead to mass tightness of hips, long abdominal muscles and obesity.
The most basic movement in lower back rehabilitation is pelvic-tilting, yet many physiotherapists and chiropractors do not take the time to coach their clients in correct pelvic tilting.
Each vertebrae and disc of the lower back is strongly connected to a muscle called the illapsoas. The iliapsoas is a muscle connecting our lower-back to our legs. This muscle has a reflex which dissipates stress and tension from the lower-back, called ‘the core reflex’. Modern-day living builds up stress in these muscles, yet not many physiotherapists and chiropractors teach their clients the psoas stress reflex.
Breathing, Movement and the Psoas are all connected into one functional-unit called ‘the core’.
When performing these three practices all together at the same time (while under guidance) an awakening in the anatomy of Kundalini is available to us.
What is Kundalini? It's the power that made the body.
Activation of Kundalini allows this power to flow up the spine and possibly into the skull; a heart opening experience.
Once awakened, Kundalini may become an form of active-meditation practice yielding a more connected relationship with the Self, Beloved and Great Spirit.
It often results in sparking interest in a devotional style of singing called 'chanting' and may hold the key to the 'Hold-Grail' of energetic marriage between a committed couple.
