  5. 4 Steps to Dissolve...

Raising kundalini seems to be the goal of spiritual people, whether they view it in those terms or not. Kundalini is the awakening energy that ascends from the base of the spine and travels through the chakras (energy centers along the spine) and brain.

In my spiritual journey, I have wondered if cleaning up emotional junk was required to get the kundalini to jump.

It appeared to me that a great deal of time is needed to be spent in self-help books, exercises, emotional digging, and trying to be honest with myself and others. After all that, I wasn’t sure it would work!

Later, I met Dr. Pillai, who has given us a shortcut in 4 easy steps…


4 Steps to Raise Your Kundalini

1. Get Out of Denial

We all have emotional baggage. It is part of our karmic fabric. Muster up the courage to say to yourself, “Yeah, I have that emotional issue.” 

2. Admit that Emotional Junk Sucks Your Energy & that You Honestly Want it to Leave You 

This directly affects your spiritual progress more than you may know.

3. Meditate with Sounds

All of Dr. Pillai’s sound meditations change emotional, subtle, and physical pathways. I find karmic thoughts are like ice on your car windshield: As you warm up the car, your ice scraper removes BIG chunks at a time. Mantras act in a similar way on frozen emotions.

4. Take Herbs Every Day

The Siddha Yogis of Tamil Nadu may have been the first in the world to “science-fy” enlightenment. They have a methodology, and Dr. Pillai decodes it for us.

Herbs are a huge part of the Siddhas’ enlightenment program. Dr. Pillai infuses Nambu Botanical herbs with special sounds prescribed by sacred agriculture and medicine traditions. This used to be common practice in Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine, but it has been mostly forgotten.

The sounds in the herbs unfold in a personal way and never stop working. At Nambu, we hear from our herb takers that the supplements work on multiple levels, and especially on emotional baggage.

Your Chakra Primer

I have read and learned that the key to enlightenment is to unlock kundalini at the base of the spine and have it rise to the higher chakras, but the rest was murky to me. With Dr. Pillai’s chakra herbs, it is becoming clearer to me what energy each chakra holds.

I have learned that the 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras hold light consciousness and new intelligence to give enlightened experiences and refined awareness. 

Chakras are like pools of energy in our body. If clear, the energy flows like a running stream. Otherwise, they become blocked with emotions that make us unhappy such as fear, guilt, attachment, and unworthiness.

When the channels between the chakras become open and blockages are cleared, then kundalini energy can move very fast, unlocking divine energy within each chakra. 

Nambu Botanicals, a company founded by Dr. Pillai, has a directive from the Divine! It is simple: Clean up the chakras so people can experience higher consciousness.

Here are some clues:

Root Chakra

Located at the base of spine and felt in the perineum, this lowest chakra deals with survival and is blocked by fear. I recognize that when this one gets blocked, I get overly anxious. Obstructions can also cause weight gain in some people.

My affirmation: “I courageously ban fear from my mind when it tries to distract me.”

Herb: Turmeric.

Shreem Brzee Turmeric is infused with Wealth Goddess Lakshmi’s mantra, Shreem Brzee. The mantra is for dissolving poverty consciousness and attracting wealth. Turmeric is also known to embody Lakshmi’s power, improve moods, reduce inflammation, and empower goal achievement.


Your Chakra Primer for Dissolving Emotional Problems & Raising Kundalini Energy Sacral Chakra

Located just above the genitals, it governs bodily pleasure or desires and is blocked by guilt.

An indication of a blocked Sacral Chakra is when you feel like people are taking advantage of you. It is a matter of setting boundaries with those you love and work with. You can’t change others, but you can change yourself.

My words are: “I am at my best when I am standing up for my own needs.”

Herb: Turmeric

Hi-Health Turmeric is infused with sacred sounds that encourage ambition, productivity, confidence, and self-esteem and nourish the lower three chakras. Turmeric is also known to embody Lakshmi’s power, improve moods, reduce inflammation, and empower goal achievement.

Naval Chakra

Located in the stomach, it deals with willpower and is blocked by shame or the feeling that you cannot do something. Never say to yourself: “I am never going to be able to do <insert here>.”

When this comes up, I think: “Get out of here. I can do anything I set my mind to!”

Herb: Turmeric

Formula: Hi-Health Turmeric

Heart Chakra 

This chakra is located in the heart area between the nipples and is blocked by grief, feelings of deep sorrow, and the inability to express love.

Sorrow is hard to move through. What has worked for me, in addition to meditation, is seeing how much time I am wasting when letting sorrow affect my moods.

Herb: Tulsi (Holy Basil)

Love & Grace Tulsi is infused with sacred sounds that support compassion and giving and receiving love. Tulsi also lowers the stress hormone, cortisol, supports the Heart Chakra and boosts the immune system.

Throat Chakra

This chakra is located in the throat and is blocked by lies we tell ourselves. You know that when you lie, there is a little angel inside telling you that you are better than that. Lying is only a coping mechanism.

Those little white lies, and bigger ones cheat you out of your own power. Always try to communicate truth, particularly when it is hard to do. You will feel less drained at the end of the day.

Herb: Guduchi, also known as Giloy

Nambu’s Guduchi is infused with sacred sounds that support personal expression and healthy communication. Guduchi also soothes pollen reactions, reduces inflammation, balances the immune system, and reduces stress.

3rd Eye Chakra

The 3rd Eye is located between the eyebrows, about an inch above the eyes. It governs intuition and is blocked by illusion. You know this chakra is blocked when you have trouble seeing the big picture. For me, it is when I over “compartmentalize” my time, tasks, and love.

The way I work with this is to stay in the present. How? If my intuition calls me to do something, I do not over-evaluate. I go for it.

Herb: Bacopa Monnieri

Nambu’s Hi-Memory Bacopa Monnieri is infused with sound vibrations that support supernormal perception and the 3rd Eye. Bacopa Monnieri is often used as a brain-boosting nootropic to boost memory, creativity, and cerebral blood flow and to reduce stress.

Crown Chakra

Located at the top of the head, this chakra is pure divine energy and is blocked by attachment. This is a tough one because ego is often involved, and attachment is rationalized away.

I have a few strategies; I will share one here.

With love, I look to see if I am trying to please the other person or seek their approval. If I am, then that is a bullseye for attachment!

Herb: Eclipta Alba, also known as Bhringaraj.  

Enlightenment Formula is Nambu Botanicals’ flagship product. It is fused with sounds that support the Crown Chakra, divine intelligence, and perception of the light body. Eclipta Alba is not only for hair and skin health. It also improves memory, intuition, and spiritual perception.

The Siddhas kept this herb a secret for a long time until now.

“The knowledge of Eclipta Alba has been secretly guarded, but I have come here to this Earth plane to make it available to everyone. It can do miracles in terms of changing your karma. It can give you access to the astral body. It will clean up the chakras.”Dr. Pillai

Each of Nambu Botanicals’ formulas are infused with sacred sounds. A long time ago, Siddha Medicine and Ayurveda practitioners did this to help clear the blocks in the chakras and allow kundalini to flow throughout the body.

Siddhas have always considered herbs an important step toward enlightenment.
