The Journey To Enlightenment. When your chakra system is awakened, the secrets of enlightenment will stand revealed. Kundalini is basically a healing force
It is said that our planet has a spirit body with emotional and mental emanations consisting of the totality of humanity’s emotional and mental emanations. Just like us, our planet also has a chakra system and what can happen within the human spirit body, can likewise happen within our planet’s spirit body. Therefore our planet can also have a kundalini awakening. It is believed that when our planet has had a sufficient kundalini awakening, the energetic web that separates the physical and spirit world will be destroyed.
Kundalini is a condensed, primal force, similar to the potential energy found in water. When released, it creates a vertical connection between the chakras by opening the subtle channels known as nadi, most specifically, the central channel that moves up the spine called sushumna. If we put water through a small hose at very high pressure, the end of the hose will undulate like a snake. Similarly, the intense energy of Kundalini undulates in the body as it rises through the chakras.
The journey of the kundalini from the root to crown is called the journey of personal enlightenment. It is interesting to note that the crown chakra only becomes active after a kun-dalini release, which means that enlightenment is impossible without a kundalini release, as enlightenment is impossible without an active crown chakra. Enlightenment essentially is the crowning of yourself as a spiritual king/queen. When a person attains enlightenment, it will not necessar-ily be noticeable. Enlightenment creates an invisible difference within the person. This is a good thing because enlightenment is not meant to make you more noticeable/special or superior. Worshiping another person is foolish. Seeking to be worshiped is even more foolish. In it’s journey up the spine, it burns all blockages inside the chakra system, and the energy webs that separate chakra from chakra dissipates in the process. The journey up the spine has no reference to the physical spine; it refers to the energetic spine, also known as the nadis.
Everyone has some amount of kundalini flowing through them. At least 90 percent of a person’s kundalini energy “sleeps” in the kundalini chakra below the basic chakra until it is awakened spontaneously or deliberately. Upon kundalini awakening the natural amount of kundalini flowing through a person increases.
The kundalini energy is then reserved there for furthering the person’s spiritual development. This energy differs from the energies found in any other chakra. It has cleansing, psychic and healing qualities unmatched by any other energy found within the spirit body of man.
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 lire.
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 front below. She lies in the perineum and is held stable and secure at the sacrum on the spinal column.
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, She 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 `nadis’.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 schakras’. These centers are the main distributors of Hcr energy. Through Her cleansing power, She begins to alter these centers until they arc 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 man.Out oldie 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. Cosmic Man belongs to the Transcendent Realm. Cosmic Man’s l3eingness is of a Higher Consciousness—Cosmic Consciousness. Cosmic Man is in full contact with his Soul and indirectly with The Divine.
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 some 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 sunrise, listening 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 some 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 drugs and prolonged periods of sexual arousal can also Awaken Her.
The main trigger for Her arousal occurs when the lower self consciousness—the personality and the ego—are relegated to the background of awareness through the quieting of the mind.
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 Her 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 Her 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! In my case, it was the descent of Grace that was my 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 was triggered.
When your chakra system is awakened, the secrets of enlightenment will stand revealed. Enlightenment is called enlightenment because at the time of total spiritual awakening, the center of every chakra shines pure white light. Kundalini is the force that makes total spiritual awakening possible. During a kundalini awakening, the kundalini energy surges up the spine, and it finally penetrates the lower cerebellum and the midbrain, the subconscious mind is opened and the individual experiences a blinding flash of light.
In ignorant people the self (kundalini) lies dormant at the base of a spiritual channel called sushumna. It starts in the tailbone and ends at the top of the head, roughly corresponding to the spinal cord. Once one engages in Hatha Yoga practice the kundalini awakens and ascends through the sushumna channel. On its way it meets seven important points, called chakras. As Iyengar affirms, they have a very important role, for “just as the brain controls physical, mental, and intellectual functions through the nerve cells or neurons, chakras tap the prana or cosmic energy which is within all living beings and transform it into spiritual energy?'” When the kundalini has traversed the entire sushumna channel and reaches the last chakra as a result of a successful Yoga practice, one experiences lib-eration, the ultimate goal of Hatha Yoga practice. As in other forms of pantheism, it is a way of achieving an impersonal form of immortality
