The term Kundalini usually refers to a dimension of energy. There is a vast amount of energy within you that has yet to discover its potential. Kundalini awakening is mystical energy described in the form of a coiled snake with heads on both ends; A snake that can act constructively or destructively when awakened.
Treasure within You
A story I read in a book. A boy who used to shepherd had a dream one day. He saw that somewhere in a distant city there was a treasure hidden under the ground. He travels in search of that treasure. After much effort, he reaches that place. But he learns that the treasure he is looking for is in the same place he had dreamed of. This means under the same bench where he had dreamed.
Everyone is sitting on the treasure, but they are busy searching for it in another direction. They don’t know where the treasure is. Kundalini is the treasure within you that has been left unused and untapped. You can use that energy to transform into a different dimension entirely; A dimension you cannot imagine.
What is Kundalini?
It is believed that Kundalini is the form of divine energy that is located at the base of the spine, in the Root chakra (Mooladhara chakra). It is also believed that Kundalini is like a snake sitting around three and a half times coiled. Kundalini is also known as Sarpa Shakti and Kundalini Shakti. This is the energy that coils at the base of the spine. It has been there since birth and in most of us.
Our spine is home to 3 Nadis called Ida, Pingala with Sushumna, at the center of the spine. The Ida and Pingala are Vayu Tatva i.e., wind-based, while the Sushumna is in liquid form, mainly consisting of Semen (or) Veerya.
In case of paralysis, modern-day doctors insert a needle into the spine to draw the CSF (Cerebro Spinal Fluid) for investigation, to evaluate the line of treatment. There is a knot at the base of the neck, where the skull connects the spine. The Semen moves between the Coccyx and the base of the neck and cannot go beyond this. The Kundalini is lodged amongst the muscles in the Coccyx region, which is below the sacrum.
It is wound 3 1⁄2 times with its mouth facing downwards and bears a semblance to a Serpent, hence, the term Serpentine and the energy emanating thus is known as Serpent Power (or) Kundalini Shakthi. Now this downward part has to be made upward.
What is Kundalini Awakening?
The snake-like kundalini face is down when in sleeping mode. He bangs hard when his face rises. This process is called Kundalini awakening. The spinal cord contains a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). It is a clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Due to the joint between the skull and the spinal cord, this fluid moves up which is the craniovertebral joint.
When the Kundalini awakens and rises, the fluid moves upward, and that joint opens. The liquid then enters the skull and flows through the point between the eyebrows which is also called the third eye. Then it comes from the left side of the chick and falls on the navel and ends at the point where it started. This completes the whole cycle.
What happens after Kundalini Awakening?
After Kundalini Awakening, when a cycle is complete, it creates a magnetic field around the person that is called an aura. The energy that surrounds you is divine. Which direct connection to the universe.
Achieve Higher Consciousness
Higher consciousness is the consciousness of God. All the Gods, Krishna, Rama, Lord Shiva, Lord Buddha, Jesus, Mahavir Jain, Guru Nanak, Allah, and many more, whoever you believe in, all achieved Higher Consciousness. After Kundalini Awakening you also achieve a higher consciousness and your perception of seeing the world also change. It is the higher consciousness that differentiates between man and God.
Enlightenment Through the Path of Kundalini
Enlightenment means self-realization and knowing your true self. Most people want enlightenment but they do not know the path. You get Enlightenment Through the Path of Kundalini.
Some Negative Effects
Kundalini’s awakening is not such an easy process. Its negative effects have also been seen in many people. Because of the energy created after awakening Kundalini, many people cannot handle it. Some people feel electric shock inside themselves, and some people feel as if they are flying upwards. Many people start having pain in the head.
It would be better for you not to try it in the absence of an expert or a guru.
How To Awaken Your Kundalini?
There are various methods by which Kundalini can be awakened.
Firstly, there have been instances where Kundalini awakens accidentally without a person’s knowledge or external factors.
The second method is through yogic practice, mainly Hatha Yoga. Here, extreme caution is warranted and needs to be carried out under the vigil and guidance of an expert teacher, who would be able to handle when a practice becomes life-threatening.
The third method is through initiation by GURU’S who employ the Shakti Path, with Brahma Urja (Cosmic Energy) through their eyes or touch. At such times, the Kundalini awakens instantly and a gap is created If the gap doesn’t fill up properly, the protrusion will assume a wrong position in the spine, harming other Nadis and causing physical damage and discomfort. I think this is the easy Kundalini awakening.
The fourth method is Meditation. There are lots of practices and meditations that help in the Kundalini Awakening. Some meditation ways and practices I am sharing with you.
Kundalini Meditation by Osho
Osho designed his meditation and compose the music for awakening the kundalini. That is a 1-hour meditation that has 4 sessions of 15 min sessions each. Osho’s Kundalini meditation has four stages: shake, dance, sit in stillness, and lie down in stillness.
Kriya Yoga is also a practice of Yoga that is revived by Mahavatar Babaji and then he transmitted it to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya. Later kriya yoga came into awareness through Paramhansa Yogananda. Actually, kriya yoga is a science for Spiritual Awakening or you can say it is spiritual awakening yoga. In kriya yoga you have to first focus on your breath, then your full body by closing your eyes, then on your spinal and have to feel. your whole existence. It is difficult to explain its practice in words. It will be better if you learn it from the Gurus of Kriya Yoga.
This is actually the Buddhist practice of meditation. In which you have to do certain things. Vipassana means seeing things as they really are. Vipassana includes techniques, like deep breathing, concentration on breathing, observing the inner and outer world, and visualization. This is the practice by which Lord Buddha achieved Higher Consciousness.
Rising 7 Chakras
As you know our body has seven chakras; Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra. If you get knowledge about these chakras and start practicing meditation on these chakras will enable you in rising to 7 chakras. Rising 7 chakras is a spiritual awakening to the secret treasure within you.
Connecting with Roots
People are so eager to go up that they forget they are not that connected to Earth. Kundalini basically starts from the root chakra. If you connect with your roots that is earth it helps in Kundalini awakening. Connecting with roots means joining with the ground. Walk on the ground without slippers, sitting on the ground. That is the reason meditation should do sitting on the ground. There is also a saying that man should be attached to the earth. That’s the truth behind it
There has been a lot of confusion over the years about what Tantra is. Most confused Tantra with sexual empowerment. Tantra relies heavily on triggers as a pathway to knowledge. Tantra is the practice by which one can get a spiritual awakening.
The word Hatha means Persistence. Hatha yoga is the practice that you do persistently and consistently. You do yoga beyond your body not allowing you to do it forcefully. Like standing on one leg for hours, balancing on your hand.
Evidence of hatha yoga is found in the old stories of Hinduism. Where saints used to do penance for many months and years to get divine power. The demons used to do severe penance to please Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma by asking them for a boon.
Sexual contact can stimulate and awaken Kundalini’s energy. Just as snake venom can kill you, or help you heal from disease, sex can hold you hostage or set you free. Kundalini energy can transform biological instincts into urges to flourish.
Easy Kundalini Awakening
If a guru is capable and wants his disciple to awaken the kundalini then he can easily help his disciple to awaken the kundalini with his power. This is only the way to easy kundalini awakening. But in today’s world, it seems very rare or you can impossible to find a such guru. But in ancient times it was possible.
Kundalini Awakening vs Spiritual Awakening
There is no difference between Kundalini Awakening and Spiritual Awakening. Both complement each other. For kundalini awakening, you need spiritual awakening first. when you are spiritually awakened only then you can forward to achieve the kundalini awakening. In actuality, the awakening of the kundalini is the most basic factor in the spiritual process.
Note: The ways for Kundalini Awakening are not that much easy. So, I will suggest you don’t try these alone. Practice these exercises under the guidance of experts and Spiritual Gurus.
