The word, Yoga, has its origin from a Sanskrit word, ‘Yuj’ which means ‘unite’. We can trace back the existence of this practice in Rigveda (the first one of the four Vedas). Vedas were developed long back in ancient India. This is the religious text for Hindus. Hinduism is said to be the oldest practice of living or dharma in the world. Believers of this religion gave impetus on the concept of Shakti. They believed the inner soul of every living being is the source of enormous power. The motives of living life should be the awakening of that internal power. Yoga is a form of such practice. There are numerous forms of Yoga. Kundalini Yoga is one of the most dangerous Yogas as while practicing this form it takes toned down energies into account.
What Is Kundalini?
The existence of the word, Kundalini, is traced back to Upanishad – another religious scripture of Hinduism. It denotes the power of our inner self which we own in our body itself – to be specific, beneath our spinal cord – in a coiled form similar to that of a snake. As per spiritual beliefs, yogis keep practicing Kundalini Yoga to bring out the utmost energy hidden within them to bridge the gap between their earthly self and the higher consciousness.
However, apart from spiritual reasons, people perform Kundalini Yoga to gain control over their mind and body, improve lung functions and get rid of stress – a threat attributed to our fast and modern lifestyle.
Ways Kundalini Yoga Benefits The Inner ‘You’
Kundalini Yoga, considered to be a complex form of yoga, may help a person if practiced properly.
Your GPS Never Fails The Internet Connection
Yes! I am talking about GPS; it is nothing but your intuitive power and the internet is your higher consciousness. In easy terms, your intuition power is nothing but the directions you get from your inner self. It happens to almost every one of us that we do not find the internal synchronization between our actions and the predicted consequence. If we concentrate further, we can often notice that our intuition proves to be right. Kundalini Yoga helps you to strengthen this intuition power through chanting (Mantra).
Say NO To Negativity With Kundalini Yoga
There is an aphorism that says “Take the Devil’s name and the Devil is here!” Yes! Though it is a state of mind, it is true that negativity invites negativity and one can gain positivity through continuous practice of optimistic and affirmative thinking. Either state of mind may affect the electromagnetic aura that surrounds us. You can strengthen your aura by the practice of Kundalini Yoga; because it fortifies your aura by calming your mind, body, and soul. A strong positive field will surely call for positive vibes.
Don’t Underestimate The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind
The key to success lies within every individual. The difference is your perception and your ability to recognize the strength within. With the continuous practice of Kundalini Yoga, one can reinforce the nervous system by balancing the hormones and purifying the blood. This helps you to concentrate enough by enabling you to give a deep outlook of your spiritual self.
Have A Control Over The E-‘motion’
Emotions can destroy you if you do not know how to resist their motion. We, as human beings, tend to get carried away with emotions easily; but the outburst of any kind of emotion – be it positive or negative – is highly detrimental for both your physical and mental health. Kundalini Yoga calms you down with the practice of breathing properly. Thus you will gradually feel restraint over your every emotion. Now you know to channelize even your negative emotion through the most possible creative way.
However, be aware! Even medicines can ruin your life if you do not know the dosage. Yes! In spite of having so many positive outcomes, Kundalini yoga can push you towards mental and physical illness if you cannot execute it properly. While awakening Kundalini, the subtle energy connects you with the nervous system. You should train yourself under the supervision of a trained yoga practitioner.
