There are many names for Kundalini energy: Some of them are ‘serpent fire’, ‘fiery serpent’ or the ‘sacred fire’. The existence of the Kundalini energy is further emphasized in this quote by John the Baptist’s statement (Matthew 3:11, Oxford Bible), “I baptize you with water…but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me…He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” The Holy Spirit symbolizes the divine energy that is coming down.
