Kundalini Rising

Greetings...

I'm not an expert on Kundalini but I wanted to open a thread where I and others could share our knowledge and experience of it.

Kundalini is a spiritual fire energy that in most people is dormant from birth and lies curled at the root of the body until something - a meditation practice, a soul mate meeting, or some other catalyst - activates it.

The energy then 'wakes up' and begins to move upward through central energy channels called the Sushumna, which is alongside or inside the spinal cord... and Ida and Pingala, which spiral around the sushumna in a double helix. (Like two serpents, the form of DNA, and the medical symbol, the Caduseus.)

The kundalini flow moves up through each of the chakras in succession until it reaches the crown. This takes place in a number of stages, which vary from one person to another.

When this is going on... usually for a few weeks or months... a person may have a variety of unusual sensations and experiences from time to time, such as the body heating or cooling, vibrations and shaking, stirred up emotions and moods, changes in diet and sleeping habits, rashes or illnesses, dreams and visions, a sense of expanded or deepened awareness, a change of interests, increased or decreased sexual involvement, and many other signs.

These come with varying degrees of discomfort, and sometimes can be quite frightening. With understanding that this is a valuable part of our spiritual awakening we can handle the energy shifts better and with less fear.

In addition, there are ways we can ease through them... with conscious belly breathing...and with becoming more present and simply accepting whatever is happening, realizing that it's temporary and won't last.

Kundalini awakes and arises as part of our spiritual awakening, and is not very predictable in its effects as each of us is a unique individual configuration of energy and consciousness.

It helps to realize that our higher self is in charge of our awakening and transformation. Gradually we can come to know our higher / true Self directly and intimately, and to trust in that.

Here's a Kundalini image and article: http://www.crystalinks.com/kundalini.html

And another article that's not so technical on Signs and Symptoms of Kundalini: http://www.elcollie.com/st/symptoms.html

Here's one about the sushumna, ida and pingala, and down the page... the chakras: http://www.rickrichards.com/chakras/Chakras1b.html

relaXman... I think most people don't know much about kundalini at all, and are often surprised and frightened when it spontaneously begins to arise.

In fact, I caution people against 'trying' to awaken kundalini but going for meditation, microcosmic orbit, chakra clearing and possibly gentle sushumna circulating practices to expand and deepen their awareness and energy flows... and let kundalini and other energy activations come along as they will, in right timing.

I agree, this is a great thread to have, perhaps everyone can compile lots of support for those going through kundalini awakening.

Kundalini in sanskrit means "coiled", and Shakti, is believed to be a goddess, or sometimes portrayed as a serpent, which is coiled up at the base of the spine, during kundalini awakening, Shakti uncoils all the way up the spine.

It lasts for a certain amount of time? That sort of defeats the purpose of awakening. An awakening doesn't die out, once awakened, the goal is to be always awake. Uncomfortable side effects and symptoms may cease, but the energies should be awake forever. A person will be able to easily have kundalini whenever they want, while still sticking to the balance of all chakras. This is why it's probably important to learn to control the kundalini.

"The goal of Tantra is to have the kundalini remain permanently elevated to the topmost psychoenergetic center, which state coincides with liberation. At the beginning, however, the kundalini will tend to return to the cakra at the base of the spine, because the body-mind is not yet adequately prepared. Therefore the practitioner must repeatedly invite the Goddess power to unite with her divine spouse, Shiva, at the top of Mount Kailasa, that is, in the sahasrara-cakra. This will gradually remove the karmic inclination toward identifying with the body-mind rather than Shiva-Shakti as one's ultimate identity. In Kashmiri Tantra, this ever-blissful transcendental identity is called aham ("I") versus the finite ego (ahamkara, "I-maker"), which is driven by the desire to maximize pleasure and minimize pain and yet continuously sows the seeds of suffering."

And once one is truly awakened Fully from Kundalini, they reach the climax of cosmic life. The stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi, their whole life is changed, and they have a permanent enlightenment, permanent communication, with their higher power, it is said, in the last 150 years of history only two have actually achieved this full awakening. They were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Both these gentlemen awakened their Kundalini in their lifetime and gained enlightenment and finally salvation, thus they do not have to be reincarnated ever again.
It's not like Kundalini just stops, and by the time it does, you are most likely dead and reunited with the divine.

I believe you can make that three, or even four.

I do not exactly know how to approach this, because, my story is quite long. It is also quite bizarre, and, involves a lifetime of events leading up to my awakening, which began a journey that has spanned the past 11 years. It involves a lot of prophesy, and is revealed through my various names, lineage, location, numbers, and through everyone connected to me throughout my family, my spousal connections, and involves information that I have never as of yet disclosed.

I stopped to read a bit about Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, and his experiences mimic mine almost to the letter. I am familiar with Swami Vivekananda, and have always known his teachings to be quite accurate, not knowing the connection between the two.

The difference is the fact that I have received 'thought transmissions' since I can remember, which is about age 10. I have always known that Biblical prophesy was somehow connected to me, and, it was incumbent on me to understand and figure out the whole Jesus mess.

I remember vividly when the messages started that would say, "Steve, the end is near, you'd better get started". I also knew that the year 2000 was going to be a year that something was going to happen, and, I was so afraid I would cry myself to sleep just thinking about it. This was 1970, and I was afraid that if I did not figure things out, that I was going to die, and burn in hell for eternity! I had recurring dreams, four of them that occurred almost nightly, and, would wake me up in sweats.

Let me just end here saying that I did not have a pleasant childhood, and, found the way to stop things through drugs and alcohol at an early age.

I want to share my story, but, I have a lot to tell. Would it be advisable to begin a new thread? I have valid evidence that links me to prophesy, but, I do not have any desire to 'exalt' myself, because, I do not for one second believe that I am anybody 'special'. We are all One, and I exist in all of you, as you do me. We are all connected to the very same Divine Principle of Spirit that goes by many names, but, is unnameable. It is an all-encompassing Cosmic awareness that I simply refer to as Logos, and the Mother/Father of the All, Providence if you will. Ramakrishna referred to it as "God-realization", and that is exactly what is; although I was informed that They were not crazy about the Word God, because, there are just too many names, and, if I wished to call Them anything, just call Them Mom and Dad. The Divine unification of Spirit, Truth/Wisdom.

The Kundalini process can be referred to as many things, and, I steer clear of names, because, I was informed from when She first awakened in me that She could be called a myriad of names, but, I would know eventually who She was. I did as it applies to every religion, but, I also had to know as it applied to prophesy. And, it just happens to be my Mother and Daughter's name.

Madeline, french for Magdalene.

Madeline Lucille Eden - Magdalene, the towering Light of Eden

I would like to continue. If anyone has a suggestion on how to go about it, I would appreciate it. I believe this to be the site I have been seeking to begin to tell my story. I have the feeling it is, so, I hope I am right.

peace

break out the etymology books:) This is the craziest story you will ever read.

Thanks in progress. I hoped you would show up and maybe say a few words about your own experience, because I feel you have a clear and balanced view of it.

I wonder if people aren't getting tired of hearing it. Lynn had some beautiful things to say about her awakening on the other thread. A nice contrast to mine really. Hers was more heart-centered.

My awakening was pretty boring compared w/ a lot of others you hear about (not complaining! I'm a chicken). I was essentially the same "me" before, during and after. I didn't see God or get a bliss hit. I never felt a freight train shoot up my spine either. I've had spiritual epiphanies (particularly when the energy is up) and lesser bliss hits, feelings of love in ways I hadn't felt before.

I had some dreams about it so I knew I was going to have a kundalini experience but I didn't know when. Predictive dreams about K. are common from what I understand. I had "top down" energy first. My crown opened and I could feel the vibration move down my body. It felt flu-like for the first few days. When the "top down" energy reached my feet I could feel energy start to come in through my feet. Eventually kundalini was triggered.

My chakras weren't opened in order. I saw bluish white light start to glow from my upper body, white light in my head coming out around my eyes, then it coalesced into a ball of white light that shot out of my head in a spiral. In that same moment I heard an electrical crackle and I could see to the left, ahead and through the top of my head simultaneously. I also watched myself as if standing to my right. My entire body vibrated heavily for about an hour after that.

A week later my lower chakras opened. I felt a sensation of liquid flowing down my left side and up the center of my body one night. The next night is was down the other side and up.

For about a month after that the energy was rather chaotic and sometimes a bit tooth rattling but it got easier. I go through cycles of upgrades and breaks. Each upgrade seems to have focuses of attention. The energy has felt quite strong sometimes. It's scared me a bit. It's easy to see why it can cause problems. Sometimes I felt like a high voltage cable barely containing the energy. It feels electrical. That said I don't discourage people from pursuing a kundalini awakening but I'd do it through meditation or yoga etc, not try to force it but allow it to happen.

I feel certain meditation played a major role in my case. I also had an evening of talking to "god" and surrendering, wanting to change me but knowing I needed help doing it. It was that evening I got a knowing things were going to change. Kundalini rose about six months later. Things can change quickly!
