Also in the West this energy was well-known. There the seat of the Inner Energy was called the “Os Sacrum” (The Sacred Bone), a term that is still used in medicine today.
When awakened the Kundalini rises through the subtle center channel in the spine (Sushumna Nadi) and opens the subtle energy centers (chakras) along the spine, piercing the Fontanelle Bone and passing through it.
At the top of the head is the point, where the individual consciousness is united to the all-pervading power of collective unconscious. Thought ceases as the Kundalini passes through the Agnya Center in the brain (6, see chart of the subtle body). One can feel a flow of cool vibrations like a gentle cool breeze, moving across the hands and over the top of the head.
We begin to feel different sensations in the fingers as here the Kundalini signals the condition of the various centers within. This state is called vibratory awareness. As we enter into a new conscious awareness of oneself this process is also called Self-Realization.
