When we use this simple meditation technique of Sahaja Yoga the Kundalini passes throughout the central nervous system by way of three energy channels, these are often refereed to in the Sanskrit language as ‘nadis’. The three channels or nadis. The channels on the nervous system are the left channel, the channels of our emotions, desires and our past, the right channel we can say acts as the ‘doer’ this is the channel that puts our desires into action and the centre channel is represented by the autonomic nervous system the part of the nervous system responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes.
The chakras are located on all three channels. When the Kundalini energy rises through the central channel, the autonomic nervous system, it nourishes each chakra, the centre, left and right side of each chakra. At the 7th or chakra named as the Sahasrara chakra in the Sanskrit language, we achieve a connection with the all-pervading divine energy. The opening of the Sahasrara chakra facilitates the flow of the divine energy through this opening in the Sahasrara into the three channels/nadis nourishing the chakras and bringing about a change in our emotional and physical well being.
All this happens in a split second, spontaneously and instantaneously. When we first begin to meditate a few strands of the thread-like Kundalini energy rise, but the more we meditate the stronger the connection becomes with the divine energy and we are able to touch on the inner joy in a much deeper way.
