The Kundalini is the “nerve of the soul”  and until it has awakened, it is blocked - sleeping and coiled at the base of the spine.  

The Kundalini energy is the key to living a life of ease, happiness and abundance - it is your powerful spiritual energy.  When the spiritual nerve (kundalini) is awakened and breaks through the blockage at the muladhara, it travels up and reaches the stage of Universal Pure Consciousness (or God).  This connection is the awakened consciousness of man - or “Christ Consciousness” so to speak.  

Without having the kundalini awakened, the soul is asleep - (unconscious).
