How to Raise Kundalini Safely
"If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world it will come through the expression of
your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every
other living creature"
` Bruce Barton
Spirituality and religion are very different things. Religion is a specific set of organised beliefs and practices, usually shared by a community or group. Spirituality is more of an individual practice and has to do with having a sense of peace and purpose. It also relates to the process of developing beliefs around the meaning of life and connection with others.
Many are her name, the inner woman, serpent power, kundalini shakti. Present in many esoteric traditions, Kundalini refers to an energy that is coiled at the base of the spine, it’s been there since birth, and in most of us, it lies dormant. In a way it is like a cable with a plug point that might not have found its energy socket. Today many looks for this socket through practices such as kundalini yoga, hatha yoga and tantra
According to the philosophy of Tantra, the entire universe is a manifestation of preconsciousness. In manifesting the universe, this pure consciousness seems to become divided into two poles or aspects, neither of which can exist without the other.
One aspect, Shiva, is masculine, retains a static quality and remains identified with unmanifested consciousness, Shiva has the bower to be bur not the power to become or change.
The other aspect, Shakti, is feminine, dynamic, energetic and creative, Shakti is the Greater Mother of the universe, for it is from her that all form is born.
It is traditionally believed that the term comes from the Sanskrit Kundal, which literally means “coiled one” (that which is coiled) or from the word Kunda, meaning “deep place, cavity”. It is often illustrated as a sleeping serpent coiled three and a half times. In all the oldest mystic traditions of the world, the serpent symbolizes consciousness. The three coils represent:
Three Mantras of OM – past, present and future
Three Gunas, or states of consciousness – waking, sleeping and dreaming
Three types of experiences – subjective, sensual and absence of experience
The half coil is the symbol of transcendence. Altogether, the coils express the total experience of the Universe.
The mechanism of the human body is so constituted that the individual has no control offer its involuntary or autonomous functions and is often as unconcerned about what transpires in his own interior as he is of what happens in the bowels of the earth Sometimes the infinitely varied activity of his mortal frame- the flow of blood, the pumping of the heart, the workings of the stomach, liver r the intestines- is sharply brought to his notice in an attack of illness, when something goes wrong in the system, and he writhes in pain until normalcy is restored and a lid is dropped over these disturbances again.
Everyone has kundalini, just as everyone has sexual impulses. In light of today’s tenor of cosmic flux. Not to know about kundalini is tantamount to refusing teenagers sex education, the more we know the more choices we have. As the energy flows through the Chakras giving each of them a boost, as the energy activates them, as the kundalini energy flows upwards activating and cleansing each chakra, it expands our mystical spiritual experiences, transforming us along the way. The more the energy rises, and our chakras are activated, the more we merge with the universe and cosmic consciousness.
The Kundalini energy is believed to have 7 layers with 7 sub-layers. Awakening this powerful energy results in Kundalini energy rising from the base of the spine, up the central meridian and eventually reaching the Crown Chakra or Sahasrara Chakra which is situated above the head. Fully awakened Kundalini energy involve the awakening of all the 49 layers.
People who practice Kundalini meditation report experiencing a range of benefits. These include:
increased mindfulness and compassion
improved communication with self and others
a clear mind
a more developed sense of self
greater purpose and intent in your actions
Activating the kundalini is a very intense experience that causes a kind of detoxification of the mind and body of a person.
With the awakening of Kundalini, a metamorphosis takes place. You are no longer tapping into only a small percentage of your spiritual and sexual pleasure. You can experience a deep sense of joy and contentment that derives from being in full connection with your body and your soul. As if every cell in your body is shared with high voltage. You can come into contact with the Divine Power and recognize your Divine nature.
Therefore, all traumas and human emotions, both positive and negative, are awakened. Man, experiences temporary psychological problems, various types of pains or sensations in the body that have no medical justification, as well as emotional instability (laughter and crying at the same time), vision, and hallucinations. But at the same time, they experience a powerful, hard to imagine dose of divine love, which in effect leads to a total restructuring of the nervous system. You feel the love everywhere, you breathe it, and you are it.
Once the kundalini opens the channel connecting all chakras, it can flow freely through it without causing any discomfort. And its flow you can feel very pleasantly in the form of vibrations resembling the orgasm of the whole body.
