Kundalini is the astral power of the goddess both loving and scarey. In gnostic terms it is the engine of Sophia (universal mind). It is the web of life and death both (not just you). It is the image and shadow. Kundalini is the power of the universe within you. This feminine power may manifest as a beautiful snake, lets say an anaconda. Also she manifests as a snake/ lizard form with red eyes , one of her wrathful forms. A guide, a threat, a guru, a mother and an ancient power, Kundalini is all these roles.
