Except maybe the bit about checking in with a medical professional if you have any physical symptoms – do that regardless! So… what is Kundalini? Kundalini is the feminine, creative, evolutionary force of infinite wisdom that lives inside every single one of us. But no regular doctor is ever going to find evidence of Ms Kundalini.

But like Carly, more and more people doing spiritual practices experience challenges related to their spiritual growth. Many spiritual traditions consider this period in one’s spiritual journey holy.
