muladhara & svadhistana chakras: 1 & 2


Dall’uno al due, dalla solidità alla liquidità, dalla sopravvivenza alla generazione della vita. Il ventre è il luogo dove la vita si incarna e si manifesta, è la sede del desiderio, dell’attrazione, del piacere, del legame con il mondo e con la realtà (cordone ombelicale). E’ il luogo vuoto mai sazio sempre da riempire con nuove cose, è il motore, la causa del movimento, della ricerca interiore e nella realtà, la ricerca dell’altro, il desiderio di fondersi, di liquefarsi, di annientare la polarità nell’unicità, la fusione dell’estasi e dell’amore.

  • Nome Sanscrito: Svadhistana
  • Significato: dolcezza
  • Localizzazione: ventre, intestino, parte inferiore dell’addome
  • Elemento: Acqua

  • Ghiandole: Gonadi

Le ovaie sono le gonadi femminili; i testicoli costituiscono l’apparato genitale maschile…
 In queste ghiandole si manifesta la possibilità di dare al mondo una nuova vita attraverso la concentrazione e la conservazione e l’espressione del seme. La memoria e l’energia ancestrale si addensano e si specificano in attesa di incontrare la terra (energia madre) e il cielo (energia creativa).
 Qui tutto è già presente ma inespresso, regno delle infinite potenzialità, fulcro della riunione delle polarità (le gonadi sono organi doppi) nella divina unicità della creazione della vita.
dai 7 Chakra

E’ l’inizio del viaggio, la base del sistema, la pietra su cui poggiano gli altri chakra. L’energia della materia, del denaro, del cibo, delle cose solide e terrestri, delle radici che penetrano profondamente nella realtà e ne traggono nutrimento. E’ la capacità di appropriarsi di ciò che è indispensabile per il proprio sostentamento, dal cibo allo spazio, alla posizione sociale, al proprio compagno o compagna. Energia di movimento, di conquista, di aggressività.

The Chakras – An Introduction To Your Energy Body


Kundalini is a Sanskrit yogic term for the unimpeded power of wisdom, transformation, and revelation inherent to us all. It is the power of universal, unbounded Consciousness as the potential for the individual to know all that lies beyond the confines of the mind and body while discovering a new vision of the mind and body revealing hidden dimensions with unimagined clarity.

 The term Kundalini translates quite literally as “the coiled one” and symbolically points to our innate potential power of consciousness, which is represented by a coiled spring or a snake, ready to be unleashed. The unfurling of Kundalini’s power occurs through the process of Kundalini awakening, which releases the power of Infinite Consciousness to impact the mind and body in countless transformative ways. It unleashes the power and potential of your mind and body to function at their very best. More importantly, from a yogic perspective, this power, your power, opens experiences of boundless love, compassion, wisdom, and grace. Ultimately Kundalini brings you to the highest state of consciousness possible. […]

Kundalini is given different names in different spiritual traditions — Holy Spirit, Chi, Sophia, N’um, Saraswati, Tara, Prajnaparamita, bodhicitta, and many more — but the power of grace, revelation, and transformation to which these terms point is one and the same. Each language has its name for gold, but gold is always the same substance. All spiritual traditions speak of the power beyond the mind that draws one through the profound process of transformation and revelation to the very source of the highest wisdom and boundless love. That power, in the yogic tradition, is known as Kundalini.

In the yogic tradition, Kundalini is described as “ever new”.

From the most expansive perspective of the macrocosm, Kundalini is Shakti, the infinite power of Consciousness that creates the entire universe and everything within it. From an interior, microcosmic perspective, Kundalini creates the universe of body and mind, every cell and every thought, while holding the potential power to directly know what is completely beyond the mind, beyond words, beyond even the imagination. […]
 Kundalini is the power of transformation through illumination, revelation, and energetic re-creation of the mind-body vehicle. It is the motive power of every mystical/spiritual tradition, though each calls it by a different name.
Lawrence Edwards, PhD, from „Awakening Kundalini”

She is the eternal dancer beckoning us to awaken to the boundless delight of her dance.

Awakening Kundalini Lawrence Edwards

“This book is the work of a man who is devoted to the wisdom and transformative power of the divine feminine. It is immeasurably helpful to have a clear framework to understand the gift of the extraordinary consciousness beyond our usual body-mind perspective. Understanding the creative process of Shakti’s unfolding in the evolution of our Self is a much-needed perspective in interpreting the physical, mental, and emotional challenges that can arise in us—whether or not we are actively seeking to cultivate the vital flow of Kundalini. Dr. Edwards provides detailed guidance for exploring meditative techniques and other tools to work with this ancient tradition in our everyday lives. Further, he provides a balanced treatment of the psychological process encountered in inner work, including the healthful role of the ego mind and working with our shadow in the process of Kundalini awakening—essential but often neglected topics in spiritual guidance. This is an inspiring reference manual…”
Mary B. O’Malley, MD, PHD


“Lawrence Edwards has given us a detailed, compassionate, and brilliantly clear guide to the greatest mystery and greatest revelation of our existence. It tells the story of his call to the profound process of awakening known in the yogic tradition as Kundalini, through his early visionary experiences, his meeting with his Indian teacher, Swami Muktananda, and how his life unfolded from that fortuitous meeting. Drawing on the rich legacy of numerous traditions—Jungian, Western psychology, scientific research, traditional yogic and mystical ones—this book is an aid in taking us beyond the confines of the delusionary certainties of our ego mind toward the experience of the deepest ground of our own being…”

The Secret of the Golden Flower Richard Wilhelm & C. G. Jung

The Golden Flower is the Elixir of Life (Chin-tan; literally, golden ball, golden pill). All changes of spiritual consciousness depend upon the heart. There is a secret charm which, although it works very accurately, is yet so fluid that it needs extreme intelligence and clarity, and the most complete absorption and tranquillity. People without this highest degree of intelligence and understanding do not find the way to apply the charm; people without this utmost capacity for absorption and tranquillity cannot keep fast hold of it.
The Secret of the Golden Flower

The Tai I Chin Hua Tsung Chih 1)↓ can be traced back to the seventeenth century as having been printed from wooden tablets. The editor describes having found an incomplete copy dating from that time in the Liu-li-ch’ang, the old street of dealers in books and antiquities in Peking, and tells how he filled it out later from a friend’s book. But the oral tradition goes back even further than that, to the Religion of the Golden Elixir of Life (Chin-tan-chiao), which developed in the T’ang period in the eighth century. The founder is said to have been the well-known Taoist adept, Lü Yen 2)↓ (Lü Tung-pin), counted later by folklore as one of the eight immortals, about whom in the course of time a rich store of myths has gathered…


This sect 3)↓, like all religions, native and foreign, met with tolerance and favour in the T’ang period and spread widely, but, as it was always an esoteric and secret religion, in the course of time it began to suffer persecution because of members being suspected of political intrigues. Again and again its adherents were persecuted by a hostile government, lastly, in an extremely cruel way by the Manchus, just before their own fall 4)↓. Many members have turned to the Christian religion, and all, even if they have not actually entered the church, are very friendly towards it.
 Our book gives the best available account of the religion of the Golden Elixir of Life. The sayings are attributed to Lü Yen, whose other name was Lü Tung-pin, or Lü, the Guest of the Cavern. In the book he is introduced as the patriarch Lü, Lü-tsu. He lived at the end of the eighth and at the beginning of the ninth century. A later commentary on his sayings has been added, but it springs from the same tradition.
 Whence did Lü get his esoteric, secret lore? He himself attributes its origin to Kuan Yin-hsi, the Master Yin-hsi of the Pass (Kuan, i.e. Han-ku Pass), for whom, according to tradition, Lao-tse wrote down his Tao Te Ching
