Kundalini - the rainbow serpent that lives in the base chakra - in my experience it has been all about learning to be at peace with yourself in this existence and break free from pre formed ideas about who and what we inherently are and discovering these things for ourselves learning your own doctrine for want of a better explanation finding god within yourself and not looking to find it within others or externally, working with your own energy and light and working comfortable within your own boundaries to achieve inner and out balance and enjoying yourself as a sexual being also, without feeling ashamed of the very powerful and potent energy that we all carry within us,ultimately achieving enlightenment. All journeys have there ups and downs but in the end the destination is normally worth the effort, so when you start looking at things differently you need to be prepared for all sorts of different shifts to occur in ones life and we should undertake to travel on that journey willingly and with an open mind otherwise difficulties can occur causing dis ease within ourselves, this is what I see as being the dangers of working with this very powerful energy but most of us are using it in our day to day lives without even knowing it!
Rainbow serpent the magical art of sexual energy by Merilyn Tunneshende is another interesting read on the subject but by no means a bible!
I think, in my humble opinion, that we atre mixing things a little bit.
There can certainly be improved states of consciousness, and there can certainly be regained healthy conditions, and one may feel a stable and deeper lasting vigour than ever before.
However, when we talk of a Kundalini Awakening, we are speaking of something terrible and shattering after which you won't be here writing. You could heal people with a look of your eye. And everybody would see that immediately - the Enlightened, the Muni that has attained omniscence and perfection has no ordinary look and is a terrible icon to behold. Terrible.
Many years ago I studied under Muktanada while living in the ashram as well as Bagwan Shri Rashnish and all the books I could coxume on the subject. I also visited with the Dolli Lama. I meditaked so much that I was in atranslike state most of the time and the extacy ith incredable experiences with The Kuadilini. I am now 65 and I can hontly tell you all it has been so inlightening that I have let go of characterstics such as the anger I had along with a host of other sins. I am what I beleive mysellf to be an evolved soul today. Once when I was young in my development I beleive I angered it because of a base spiritual jelousy and I begin to burn as though I were in Hell. I fell to my knees with prayes of forgiveness and it left me.While burning in this Hell I looked into a mirror and my eyes were blackened. I was in shere terror like never before although I have felt this terror one other time years before when I appeared to grasp timelessness and oneness with a lady.This of course wasn'twhere I felt the terror but soon after Imy mind begin to reprogram itself for my root beliefs and I was plaged with horrible nightmares and terror. My experience have been soprecious to me and I have a connection with God and christ like I never dreamed possible .I came home with who I really am and fear death no more and welcome this topic with discussion with anyone who listens that has a strong interest in it. The Mustard Seed was a book that I practically had instand recall of every page in the book as I opened another person up that I beleived was ready which I canhope I did so with the greatest guidance and wisdom. He became a LIon and a very happy man today. The Love and kindness I feel supasses all feelings judgement today. I injoy who I have become tremendously and still in the process of growing each ,it's a hobby I say. sofican
I had a FULL Kundalini awakening back in March, 2007. I was 38yrs old at the time. I was raised Catholic/Christian and had NO CLUE what was happening to me at the time. I was switching medications for depression (Paxil to Remeron/Mirtazapine) and I was also looking for God to find the truth. I never felt like I could find the full truth within the parameters of Christianity.
I prayed to God to reveal to me how to give myself fully to "God". That is when my kundalini awakened. I went through an Ego death and was left with my "true self" or "higher self". I just existed but had no idea or concept of existing as a human being. Well - I went to psychiatrists and they told me that I was not having a spiritual awakening and they put me on 3 additional medications for a total of FOUR. During the next 2 years (almost brings me to the present) I dealt with the Hell of being in a extended "Dark Night of the Soul". I decided that the medications were somehow blocking my spiritual awakening. I just weaned off of my last drug one month ago in May, 2009. I can feel my kundalini begin to rise again. I feel like a human being again and not a robot/zombie.
I tell the group this to warn of the dangers of psychiatric drugs. They were a life saver for me when I first got depressed back in 1994. I think the side effects through the body/mind/spirit out of balance. Doctors only deal with medicine, science and societal norms. I had to follow my instincts to get my "soul" back. I would LOVE to share more about my experience and be a guardian angel to any who may be healed by my words.
I have also become a Reiki Master this year. It is within ALL of us to find our Divine selves. I look forward to chatting/meeting with anyone who can resonate with my message.
I have read your posts and firstly would like to congratulate this group for actually sticking to the topic...smile.
I am in the knowing of energies and powers from within, and do daily my best to be the best i know how...
I how ever have been trying to meditate for the longest time and have tried many forms of meditation from Getting-in the Gap, to mantra's to hypnosis, and have not truly found one that has allowed me to connect with my internal powers...
If you could please suggest some other forms of meditation that you have tried and had success with, and if you could talk about the key or what made it work for you, i would be very grateful.
hi, I am new to this site. Saw this topic and want to jump right in. I accidentally had a taste of this while in deep meditation. I didn't know what was happening to me until I spoke with several people who explained. I was told one way to awake kundalini was by self sacrifice. Any thoughts on this?
As a Siddha, I agree with enologist. I have treated so many with Kundalini poisoning. Knowing the cackras and a few meditations will get one into trouble. One must get the entire body into balance and work on the mind body and spirit, done properly Kundalini will awaken naturally on its own, to do other wise is like pouring kerosene on a fire. It is also important to have a qualified mentor, not one who learned from a video or book. It is an insult to any Tantria practitioner to immediateley assume Tantra is about sex, so little of it is. When sex is incorporated into Tantra, the sacred sex is after much preparation and in the early stages of Tantra teaching[although many Tantrics do not even incorporate this small part] to teach the intiate's body to experience ecstacy. Then after much study and non-sexual practice the intiate becomes Tantric or Tantrica and experiences ecstacy in body, mind and spirit, the ultimate ecstacy which is non-sexual. The best way to develop ones Kundalini, a true Kundalini experince not the illusion most think are Kundalini, is to study with either a Hindu or Tibetan Buddhism Tantric[a]. It is not an overnight process but will be done in your lifetime. Theee is no McTantric with a drive-in aka "California Tantra" [like "California" or "Madonna" Kabbalah] There is more to the complex human than Kundalini, that is one one part of the whole that can consume and damage the rest of one's being.
This is an awesome subject. I have taken workshops around it & practised yoga for many years. Basically the Kundalini is the serpent goddess who lies coiled 3.5 times around the Muladhara (base) chakra. As she awakens she climbs the Susumna & pierces each chakra. Thus the Kundalini is the actvating energy force that connects and activates the chakras.
The chakras are complicated, but in their most basic form they are 7 spinning wheels of energy that exist in the body & intersect the Susumna, which is the central vertical nadi that connects all the chakras. When the Kundalini energy rises, it stimulates the chakras & helps them to function at optimum levels.
The 1st chakra is located at the base of the spine, at the perineum, & is vital to survival, grounding, the body, beginnings. Color is red / earth.
The 2nd chakra is located midway between the perineum & the navel, & has to do with emotions, sexuality, tantra, movement, & change. Color is orange / water.
The 3rd is located at the navel, & is connected to power, will, energy, and transformation. Color is yellow / fire.
Fourth is located at the heart, & is connected to love, air, breath, relationship, & balance. Color is green (sometimes pink) / air.
Fifth is located at the throat, & is connected to speech, communication, creativity, telepathy. Color is bright blue / sound.
Sixth is located at the third eye, & represents light, color, sight, visualizaton, clairvoyance. Color is indigo / light.
Seventh is at the crown of the head & brings thought, knowing, transcendence, meditation, enlightenment and consciousness. Color is violet / thought.
Currently our culture is oriented to the lower 3, money, sex, power. Eastern cultures are more oriented to the upper chakras,communication, spirituality, enlightenment. There are sexual practices that can help activate these energies.
Leaning about the chakras is a worthwhile study & helps one gain balance.
I go into various states of trance but rarely am I out of control. I'm able to share my body and mind with the entity. A true tantrika has "both ends" going at the same time. At best, when invoking goddesses the high is unbelievable.
I can see that you have experienced Kundalini, it is in your eyes. This isnt a line for those who are not so familiar with the transformational affects of awakening the Kundalini energy inside you. Kundalini is the life force that is understood as a coil, or snake like energy source in the base of your spine. This energy like the Chi, travels through your body, through your energy centres or charkras. We can have blockages in our energy centres which cause emotional, physical, mental etc complications and by unlocking the Kundalini energy within by powerful technique of yoga and breathing you can release blockages and allow the kundalini to channel through the energy centres and create balance and greater awareness of the self as a spiritual being having a human experience. This sounds like a load of bollocks to many but it is real. The enlightenment and the life changing benefits of awakening the kundalini energy are incomparable to anything I know or have experienced in terms of self awareness practices etc. However, awakening the kundalini is not a joke and it is extremely powerful. It is very important to have a good teacher whom you trust to be a solid person with loving and compassionate intention. In the wrong hands (someone who has alterior motives such as greed, lust, control.. etc you know the 7 sins etc) it could be disasterous for you spiritually, intellectually, mentally and send you into mental instability. Its so important to always have a sensible balance between searching for enlightenment and having a good grip on reality too... reality I mean is that we are living this life, we pay taxes, we pay bills, work, have highs and lows... our experience is a human one and this must be respected. What Ive always felt is that in order to fly high spiritually we must firmly have our feet on the ground first. Having said the pragmatics, Kundalini is trully a way of strengthening ones relationship with the self and God. Sat Nam.
Hi Tranquiloguy, I am very interested in learning more about Kundalini-- I've never heard of it...
