Kundalini is supposedly a mystical power that resides at the base of your spine. When it 'rises up' it means you are becoming enlightened or at least more enlightened as a being.

Well, my experience is that Kundalini rising is the same as sleep deprivation.

When I was tired I could sit and meditate and suddenly brilliant flashes of light would illuminate my skull and electrical charges would cause my body to twitch.

Hmm.... sounds cool! But I think it's just a shot of adrenaline blasting through your sleep deprived system.

I suspect with more research many mystical experiences will have less profound explanations.
