The technology of being human

The seven chakras make up the core of our energy or spiritual body. These points are located along the kundalini, a dual energy stream flowing from the centre of our earth to the furtherest space and back down to earth centre.

The kundalini can be likened to an 11,000 volt power line along which are transformers or chakras which break the current down in to 240 volts for consumption.

In yoga class I have talked about the dual nature of the kundalini in comparison with the alternating current of the city electrical grid and its important in meditation and asana practise to remember these facts as this is an area of our being where we are also looking to extend our conscious perception and gain management privileges.
