Kundalini Transformation of the Human-Animal: Evolving to Our Divine Potential
KUNDALINI-POWER FROM BELOW
Kundalini is the energy that powers our biological life. It is the generator out of which the fires of life are stoked. It is the sustainer and regulator of our life force and the driving power that fuels our evolutionary, transformative journey. The main goal of a fully risen Kundalini is to Awaken us to a state of Higher Consciousness—Cosmic Consciousness—and transform the old animal body into a spiritual one.
The Kundalini power can change us quickly and dramatically. Kundalini power has nothing to do with religion. However, It has been incorporated to become part and parcel of some religions and cults. Kundalini is a Sanskrit word that means coil; coiled like a snake. It is also referred to as the Serpent Power or the Serpent Firc.Throughout human history, Kundalini has been represented by the symbols of the serpent, fire and the snake. When the snake is shown as coiled it represents Kundalini in Her dormant state. When it is shown coming out of the crown on top of the head, it symbolizes the field of energy of a risen Kundalini. Kundalini power comes from below. She lies in the perineum and is held stable and secure at the sacrum on the spinal colunin.There She rests dormant until She is Awakened.
Once Awakened, She begins to move upwards along the spine. As She ascends the spine, Her main targets are the seven psychic ‘centers’ that are situated along the spinal column. However. Shc can diverge at any point and spread out into all parts of the body. Her work is to cleanse and alter the organs and all other systems that compose the body.
Her circuit begins in the area of the genitals and ends at the crown of the head. When fully aroused. She will pierce through the crown; the area often referred to as the Sahasrara.There are also three main psychic nerves, known as inadist.The main nadis, which follows the path of the spinal cord, is called the Sushumna. This is the channel through which Kundalini ascends and descends.
There are also two minor nadis. The one running up the left side of the spinal column is called the Ida and considered to be the feminine, cooling and intuitive energy. The one running up the right side is called the Pingala and believed to be the masculine, rational energy. Like electricity, Kundalini energy is neutral; She does not discriminate. She breaks down all the barriers within the physical body and removes ‘knots’ that are blocking the major centers or ‘chakras’. These centers are the main distributors of Her energy. Through Her cleansing power.
She begins to alter these centers until they are fully opened and transformed. The cleansing process begins at the base of the spine, which is the lowest center; also called the Muladhara. From there. She gradually works Her way up to the crown center at the top of the head, known as the Sahasrara.
It takes years or life times for a center to be fully cleansed and opened. After all the centers have been cleaned and transformed, they will be connected and able to work together in a united harmony.
This is the first goal that needs to be accomplished in order to continue the transformation of our current biological body. The ultimate goal of Kundalini power is to transmute the physical body of the old numOut of thc old body She will forge a new body—one that will be formed and sustained by the vibrations of a higher frequency
level. This new body will be the new form for a New Species—called Cosmic Man. Connie Man belongs to the Transcendent Realms. Cosmic Man’s Beingness is oh higher Consciousness—Cosmic Consciousness. Cosmic Man is in full contact with his Soul and indirectly with The Disuse.
In most people. Kundalini is by and large in a dormant state.Very few are aware of Her existence and Her purpose. However. there are times in peoples’ lives when She is aroused for short moments to a small degree due to sonic enchanted moment of pleasure. Most, who experience these unexpected moments, simply refer to them as a ‘chill up my spine’. Who has not felt, at one time or another,this cool tingling stream that runs up the back of our spine and sometimes continues to move up to the head; making our ‘hair stand on end’. This stream of coolness is Kundalini on the move!
Kundalini can be aroused to action by something as simple as a sunristlistening to our favorite music, reading an inspirational book or being absorbed in a joyful reverie.
She can also Awaken spontaneously during moments of crisis—through receiving sonic kind of emotional or physical shock. She may also become active during childbirth due to prolonged pain and from repeated pressure being exerted on the area of the perineum. Mind-altering drop and prolonged periods of sexual arousal can also Awaken Her.
The main trigger for Her arousal occurs when the lower self consciousnest—the personality and the ego—are relegated to the background of awareness through the quieting of the I. Kundalini power can be roused to rice to higher levels and Her stay on some levels can be prolonged.
This is done through the practice of various yogic disciplines and through intense meditations. If someone, who may not be ready to receive
Her power, intentionally activates Her, it can be highly dangerous.
We must be advanced far enough on our evolutionary path, so that our physical body has already begun to adjust itself to higher vibrational levels.A receiver must be physically healthy in order for the body to be able to tolerate and sustain Her forceful energy.
We must also be mentally and emotionally stable enough to deal with whatever results are brought about. The power of Kundalini not only creates but can also destroy—by burning out our entire biological system! The brain and the nervous system of the old body bear the brunt of the pressure exerted by Kundalini’s forceful energy.Through Eler cleansing, sensitivity is greatly increased.
The physical body, the emotions and the intellect become sensitized to a degree, which is out of proportion with what is normally bearable when we are within our normal lower self surroundings.
The lower self world has now become a hazardous environment for our well-being. We must find a way to readjust our self to our old world. This is one of the most difficult adjustments to make! At rare times, Kundalini can, without any warning, spontaneously erupt in someone in all Eler full-blown power. She will have made a complete circuit, moving up from the genital area to the top of the crown in the head.
This spontaneous rising appears to happen often to those who are not prepared or those who have never even heard of Kundalini and even to those who are not leading an aware spiritual life. Of course, they might have been prepared for this moment through their previous life times. Perhaps, this sudden, out-of-the-blue. spontaneous rising is a final test—an assessment for those who are presented with the opportunity to take this crucial defining moment in their evolutionary journey!
If Kundalini rises and Awakens someone who has no knowledge of Kundalini, then the receiver “is in peril”! It is dangerous even for those who have been preparing for this moment. The impact of the experience is so overwhelming and so astonishing that we will question our sanity. We are left in a stunned state; we simply cannot comprehend what has happened! Intuition tells us that it is best not to mention this to anyone. And we are right—who would believe such a far-fetched story!
It is the descent of Grace that is the salvation. Grace channeled the Kundalini power upwards. At the same ‘instant’ when the Kundalini fire ascended and reached Its highest point at the crown of the head—Grace descended. And through this fusion, Self-Realization.
The descent of Grace is the saving moment for those who have a spontaneous full-blown Kundalini rising. Without Grace channeling the Kundalini power into the vastness of our spiritual Beingness, the Kundalini power would descend back down and be absorbed into our lower self consciousness—where, through the ignorance of the lower self values, She would be able to be misused for the darkest worldly gains.
Why are some fortunate enough to have the benefit of Grace?
That Grace comes to assist those whose time has come for this momentous and crucial turning-point on their spiritual journey.This is a leap of freedom—one that will take us out of the dark confines of the ‘fishbowl’ of the lower self consciousness and establish our roots within the consciousness of our Higher Self. And this is accomplished through Self-Realization. Help for obtaining deliverance from bondage to our lower self consciousness only comes after we have surrendered our ego and our self-will. We will feel humbled and become aware of our smallness within the vastness of Existence only when we stand alone in our nakedness and vulnerability. It is then, that Grace comes—picks us up, dusts us off—and points us in the right direction.
Once the initial euphoria of Self-Realization has calmed down to a level where better reason can prevail, we feel disinclined to reveal such an intensely intimate experience. How could we even find the right words—for explaining the unexplainable; especially, when we our self don’t even understand the how, why and the `now-what’ of the entire mystery, which has transpired.
Kundalini has ignited to Her fullest potency. Her internal fire is now burning—cleansing and transforming all the layers of the deep-rooted cellular structure of our lower self. But, She takes the route of least resistance. Therefore, She can rise up as well as descend. If Her full power descends and settles back down into our lower self consciousness, then Her force will only reinforce our personality. Our ego will now be in a position to seize all our new gotten powers for its own desires. The direction of the Kundalini fire depends on our level of evolutionary consciousness. Her goal is not only to transmute and strengthen our new form, which She is creating, but also to search out all our emotional and intellectual weaknesses.
A tremendous power is now racing through our body. It is a power not under our control. We are completely at Her mercy! We feel as if we have been taken over—and we have! Kundalini energy is now charging throughout our entire system, contacting and touching all the parts of Beingness. Her fire and Her transformative intent will spare nothing. All we can do is `hang-on.
Kundalini is called the power of transformation. Initially, Kundalini transformed itself from the state of pure expanded con-sciousness into the contracted form we know as our mind and awareness, finally coming to rest as the dormant Kundalini power within. From this final, most contracted form, once awakened, it can expand our limited consciousness back to our original fully expanded state once more.”
The latent force of higher potential, said to lie in three and one-half coils, like the snake in the churning of the ocean of milk, sleeping at the lowest center (muladhara chakra) at the foot of the ‘tree of life’, the spinal column. This serpent power, Kunda-lini, cannot be described fully, even by one who has succeeded in awakening it. When it awakens, it shoots through the body like an electric shock, and, trembling and amazed, the person realizes that a powerful event has taken place within him. This is only the beginning. The whole body trembles. A door seems to have been pushed open through which a flood of light flows from some unknown world, a light of in-comparable radiance. After a long time the trembling body becomes calm, but the flash of light shooting through the spinal column to the crown of the head is unforgettable. This flash of light is not really the Kunda-lini, however, it is merely a sign of its awakening. The Kundalini itself does not shoot up, but will later rise slowly, passing through the stations (the chakras), each of which creates another new and powerful experience.
The Kundalini system does not end with these seven chakras; they comprise the trunk of the Tree of Life. This trunk has many branches and there are many smaller chakra centers throughout the body. There are chakras behind each joint, in the palms, soles of feet, and of course in the hands.
The hand chakras become highly developed in healers as sens-ing devices and transmitters of energy. Some of the smaller chakras also exist on other aura body levels. Each of the hundreds of tiny energy vortexes of the acupuncture points may be considered a chakra. In one further comment on the Kundalini Line, Barbara Marciniak describes the development of five new centers beyond the crown.
This eventual total of twelve chakras will match the eventual reconnec-tion of the twelve DNA strands. The centers con-tinue along the straight central line of the Sushumna and reach from the individual to the universe. They are beyond the body and have no physical coordi-nates. Her eighth chakra, somewhat equivalent to the transpersonal point, accesses invisible psychic realities beyond the body; the center is located just above the crown, from a few inches to a few feet over the physical head.
Chakra nine, located as far outside Earth’s atmosphere as the moon, connects the individual to the energy grid of the Earth, making that person a caretaker and steward for the planet. The tenth center offers access to all the information of the Earth’s solar system; the eleventh to Earth’s galaxy; and the twelfth chakra gives access to the rest of the planets, and information of deep space and the universe. By the future development of these centers, we will truly become interplanetary Be-ings.
