The Crystal of the Day for Monday 18 November 2013 is Kundalini Quartz. Kundalini awakening entails the kundalini energy moving up the spine from base to crown and is associated with the idea of ‘enlightenment’. It has been written about in literature for a long time. The process revolves around the concept that you have a kundalini serpent, that is said to reside at the base of your spine and is wrapped three and a half times around the sacrum, until it is roused.

When this serpent rises up and makes its way to the crown, you are said to be enlightened. Be aware that many people have health issues from the awakening of their kundalini, so make sure that you educate yourself well before purposely performing any process to make this happen. Individuals vary, and although kundalini awakening may often happen spontaneously, it may take years of doing certain spiritual practises. Some of these are very special, in-depth practises, and by using specific crystals at the same time, it is possible to aid the process to awaken the kundalini serpent.

If you desire to use crystals to do this, some of the best stones to use are Aurora Quartz or Serpentine Stone. Using these crystals as part of the process is very useful, as they are known to alleviate some of the possible discomfort that it is possible to feel.

Using either Serpentine Stone or Aurora Quartz allows you to clear the chakras as the movement occurs. If you feel you want to participate in these practises please ensure that you take advice from extremely knowledgeable experts, as some people have been known to have bad side effects from doing this.
