If you feel you are in a spiritual awakening process, or possibly in a spiritual emergence or crisis, you may feel you have enough to worry about with the physical challenges that arise, or psychic shifts that are throwing you into unfamiliar territory. But what is important to understand in this awakening process is that it is your subtle energy field that is erupting and unravelling and producing all the changes.
One way to frame this experience and gain some insight is to use the model common to yogis, that maps chakras (energy vortices) and nadis (flows of energy) and various other knots and points and brain centres that get involved in the transformative and evolutionary changes you are experiencing. In this essay, I will focus on the role of chakras in transformation and spiritual awakening.
Various esoteric systems see chakras in different colours, with varied symbols, and ascribe various characteristics and talents to each. I believe the yogic science of Kundalini Tantra is the most useful model to understand the many phenomena that arise in a spiritual awakening process. So here, in a very truncated and simplified way, are the points I find most helpful in seeing what kundalini activity is up to in any given body.
The most significant chakras are said to be in the centre of the spine but there are probably 50 chakras throughout the body and these are points where your consciousness and energy intersect, like little wheels of energy holding your invisible energy field together.
