Kundalini awakening help

Sometimes a Kundalini Awakening will look like mental illness, physical illness or emotional difficulties. It can be difficult to figure out exactly what’s going on, all you know is something freaky is happening. My own awakening began in 2000 and proceeded more or less unnoticed by me, except for strange jerkings of the body and poppings in the spine. A dangerous mix of emotional avoidance and LSD tipped the process over the edge into a full-blown psychotic episode. However, as one yoga teacher once told me, psych units are full of people who’ve had spiritual experiences (often mixed with drugs) that have blown their circuits. Find someone who understands that it is a core part of the human experience to go through a spiritual awakening that often involves a purification process of body, mind and soul.
You may be all blissed out and on cloud nine, but you need to make sure you look after your physical body, your mental well-being, and your emotional state. Try to locate a Transpersonal Therapist who knows what Kundalini is and understands spiritual transformation. You are not just undergoing extreme adjustment of your nervous system and physiology, you are (whether you know it or not) experiencing a profound spiritual awakening, for you are getting in touch with Source at its deepest level–you are discovering that in a very literal sense you and It are one. Anything that takes care of your physical body and makes you stronger and clearer is generally a YES. When I came back to New Zealand, my system was so sensitive to light, sound and other people’s emotions that I found it really hard to even go to the supermarket.
What was worse was that I couldn’t talk to anyone about what I was experiencing because people would have though I was crazy.
On top of this sensitivity, all the hidden parts of my ego had been thrown up for me to deal with.
It’s good too if they can call you on your bullshit and help keep you grounded in reality. Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa (The Eight Human Talents; Collins Living, 2001) on kundalini as the most powerful form of yoga.
John White (What Is Enlightenment?; Paragon House, 1995) on the challenges modern psychology faces in the context of the kundalini experience. By all accounts, it seems too that the number of people experiencing Kundalini is on the rise. I suspect mine got a turbo-charge through my drug use, and I was damn fortunate that the circuits in my brain didn’t totally blow out.
So, when your experience is totally sucking, just keep looking after yourself, seeking help and being supported and know that this too will pass.
Before you spend money on such a thing, ask yourself if you’re truly ready to face the darkest, most awful parts of who you are.
Ask yourself if you really want to do the work that’s required when Kundalini awakens. And if you’ve still got a burning desire to do whatever it takes to awaken Kundalini, good luck to you. Kundalini Awakenings: Symptoms, Process, Benefits, Support & HelpWhether you've had a Kundalini Awakening, are curious about the process of awakening Kundalini, think you might have some of the symptoms of a Kundalini Awakening or are looking for support for a Kundalini Awakening, you're in the right place. May 5th-6th: Wellington, Laughter Yoga WorkshopThis experiential (and often life-transforming) workshop is ideal for personal development and anyone interested in running a Laughter Yoga group.
I had gone through my own spontaneous Kundalini awaking, whenever there was signs of mental instability, doing grounding work through the root chakra would help me out tremendously.
I don’t know where you live, but you might find that certain Orthodox Christian priests may be able to help you. By the way, I live in the Bay Area too and would love to find people who have also had this experience.
Arabella Lumley explains how the serpent has been used in ancient religions as a symbol of kundalini energy and how experiencing this energy can create a sense of oneness that lead to great social change.
The worship and reverence of the serpent can be found around the globe, in a number of different religions, mythologies and ancient belief systems.
One other possible explanation that has been either dismissed by academics and researchers or overlooked when considering why the serpent is such a pervasive symbol in ancient cultures, is the idea that it possibly represents activation of the Kundalini energy and as such is a global symbol of spiritual enlightenment.
In Hinduism, this energy is believed to lie dormant at the base of the spine until it is activated by either yoga or meditation.
Now of course, some may argue that the idea of Kundalini energy is an exclusively Hindu belief and thus question how cultures and ancient civilisations far removed geographically from India and countries that practise Hinduism, hold a belief in this same spiritual phenomenon. Contrary to this idea, Anthropologist Lynne Isbell suggests that evolution is the reason why snakes have been revered throughout the ages. Ultimately, it is unclear why serpent worship extends to so many different ancient cultures and civilisations as we cannot say with certainty that it is due to either evolutionary or spiritual reasons. In Hindusim there is a multitude of different of ways that the snake is both worshiped and feared. For example, Hindu scriptures mention the Nagas which are demigods that take the form of snakes but have the capability of taking human form as well.
Additionally, a snake is often used to represent the Kundalini energy that Hindus believe lies dormant and coiled at the base of the spine. Like Hinduism, in Ancient Egypt, snakes represent death and rebirth due to the shedding of their skin and also share links to the gods. The goddess Renenutet is often depicted as a cobra or as a woman with the head of a cobra and was believed to give children their true name which is an aspect of their soul.
Similarly, the goddess Wadjet is also often depicted as a cobra and was seen as the protector of Lower Egypt. In Aboriginal mythology, Aborigines talk of the Rainbow Serpent who they believe is the creator of the world.
There are variations to this story but they share the common theme of the Rainbow serpent being a creator and being responsible for life and water on earth. Similar to the Aboriginal legends, the Ashanti people of West Africa believe in a rainbow god in the form of a snake that created the world and was said to span the sky sometimes in the form of a rainbow.
In ancient Greece the great healer Asclepius is represented by the symbol of a snake wrapped around a rod and this symbol today is still a well-recognised symbol of medicine and an esoteric symbol of healing. In Chinese mythology snakes are very closely associated with dragons with many suggesting that dragons were modelled on snakes due to the long slender, snake-like figure that dragons are usually depicted to have. In the Mayan and Aztec civilisation, gods such as Kukuklan and Quetzalcoatl were worshipped who were said to have the form of the serpent.
In some tales, Kukuklan was a boy who was born as a snake and grew to a monstrous size in other tales he is a winged serpent. Similarly, Quetzalcoatl was known as the feathered serpent which is what his name translates to and was worshipped as a god of intelligence and self-reflection.
In Norse mythology, there is Jormungandr who is also known as the Midgard serpent and was thought to be a sea serpent.
So let us consider some of the similarities in the way snakes are used in different mythological narratives and what snakes are thought to represent. Similarly, Quetzacoatl the serpent god that was worshipped in Mesoamerican cultures is known as the feathered serpent again implying a connection between snakes and spiritual ascension. So the questions I would like to ask are: were the ancients aware of an inner power that dwells within each human and knew that when this power became activated it led to a greater understanding of our oneness with everything?
I believe that whether we have a full-blown kundalini awakening or whether we just subtly awaken energies within ourselves, through calm practices such as yoga and meditation, we can expect to reconnect with a part of ourselves that is more peaceful and loving and through this bring peace and love in to our own lives as well as to those who surround us. Arabella Lumley graduated from St Mary’s University College with a bachelor’s degree in English and History.

The part of you that helps you survive dangerous situations and emergencies and will do anything it must to help you survive life on this plane. It may come to you in scary monsters of your youth or things you have seen in horror films or books or anything that will cause you fear.
So as you activate do not fear what may come it is just another aspect of you testing your self.

Kundalini in its natural expression will ask of the person in whom it has awakened for strict honesty and integrity. Being in the physical world requires attentiveness and the ability to move through the dense physical environment with confidence and intelligence. Yes we can fantasize and day dream but we can also create and we can also open to areas beyond the fantasies and beyond the creating into venues that allow us access to remote viewing and experiencing visions etc. I suggest that as Kundalini people we can cultivate the imagination and release the doubts that we have been programmed with regarding its use.
I was participating in a healing the other day and I asked one person what they were seeing. This is why so much second guessing of personally experienced phenomena takes place by people inside of the Kundalini. Find someone who knows about Kundalini, preferably local, who can be a guide and hand-to-hold through this process. If you’re having issues with mental stability, find a good therapist or psychiatrist or psycho-therapist etc. I refused Lithium, the usual drug of choice for treating bi-polar because I knew it had serious side-affects, but I didn’t refuse medication because I knew my psyche had been blown to bits.
Kundalini Awakenings often throw us totally into the La La Sphere, and keeping our feet on the ground as well as fronting up to the actuality of our physical, mental and emotional state is really important. We’re getting re-wired on a DNA level to handle higher levels of prana moving through our system.
A Kundalini Awakening shatters the ego and can make it difficult, if not impossible to function in society – at least for a while.
You are not the chosen one, you are not the next Buddha, although you may be on your way to becoming a buddha. It did take me seven years though to return to a place of equilibrium and general awesomeness.
And if you accept and embrace the process, while studying up on what’s going on, you can likely make it a much smoother passage.
Kundalini is asking us to listen to that small quiet part of us until it becomes the only part of us we ever hear. She is available for 45 minute Skype sessions to discuss what may be happening to you and how you may best support yourself through the process. Millions of people have been impacted by the articles, books and videos she has published over the last ten years.
I grew up a devout Jehovah’s Witness but became disillusioned with the church at age 22 and left, For the last 25 years I was pretty much an atheist.
In fact, in regards to symbolism, no other animal as a sacred symbol has been found to be as widespread or as significant as the serpent.
Kundalini energy is described in Eastern religions to be the life force energy that when awakened connects us with All that is and gives us an awareness of our true self.
Many who have experienced the activation of this energy have described the sensation as, not only euphoric and intensely spiritual but, interestingly, as if the energy were moving in their body and around their spine like a snake. Well, my response to this would be that perhaps since there are so many accounts of people who have experienced a spontaneous sensation of energy flowing through their body during Yoga or meditation, maybe Kundalini activation does exist and perhaps the spiritual practice of awakening this life force energy was well-known in ancient traditions around the world.
She argues that we have an innate biological fear of snakes due to the way we have evolved, more so than any other predator as for thousands of years this was our primary threat and therefore this could explain why snakes appear in so many myths and religions.
There could be a range of reasons why the serpent is such a celebrated symbol and perhaps some cultures used the snake to represent Kundalini activation and perhaps others just found the snake a fascinating and frightening creature. They are primarily taken to represent life, death and time as well as being seen as divine. They are often considered as nature spirits in that they protect springs and rivers and can both be either good or evil depending on how they are treated by humans.
As previously discussed, in Hinduism, it is believed that the Kundalini energy can only be awakened by dedication to spiritual practices but when awakened leads to Enlightenment. Wadjet is also the symbol of the Uraeus (upright cobra) which would be on a pharaoh’s headdress and symbolised his legitimacy to rule over Egypt as well as the protection Wadjet gave him. In this Dreamtime story (creation story), the Rainbow Serpent slept under the land with all the animals in her belly, she then pushed up out of the land and called to the frogs to come out. What’s more, due to their sacred nature and in honour of Ascelpius, ancient Greeks would bring snakes to healing rituals. This staff is called the caduceus and it became the symbol of merchants and travellers as well as medicine. The Ouroboros is a symbol that appears in both Ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology, a symbol that depicts a serpent eating its own tail. He is believed by the Aztecs to have created humanity and is also associated with the East and the sun.
He grew so large that he wrapped himself around the earth and was able to bite his own tail like an ouroboros.
The common themes in snake worship seem to be creation as well as destruction, intelligence, wisdom, power, rebirth, death, time, healing and enlightenment. For instance, the caduceus, the staff which the ancient Greek god Hermes carried, has wings above two snakes entwined around a rod indicating spiritual transcendence and elevation.
Furthermore, in Ancient Egypt the Uraeus that the Pharoah would wear on his head is situated in the same place many believe the third eye or pineal gland to be located which is significant for many believe that when one has had a Kundalini experience, the third eye becomes activated, awakening our intuitive and psychic abilities.
She is an active researcher in the fields of politics, consciousness and science, meditation and ancient history.
Trustworthiness, humility, love, forgiveness, the safeties basically become the new code of conduct backed up by a powerful and intelligent force of divinity.
From this area of experience it is the expressions of these and other higher understandings that can begin to mold the Kundalini into a truly blessed experience. Stealing or hurting are also painful in ways that can trouble one far beyond what would normally have been the case.
All cultures have the Kundalini and as it is an intelligent force on its own it has the ability to determine what is and is not moral inside of a specific culture.
Everything changes with the Kundalini and one needs to be in the constant conscious practice of these qualities. The imaginative world though isn't quite what our parents may have considered it to be from a Kundalini perspective. Empathy, telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, psychokinesis, healing, all have components that begin to be realized in the same areas where the imagination exists. They simply cannot believe that this fantastic experience is happening due to the invalidation of a belief or experience that incorporates the existence of the fantastic. So I kept my mouth shut, and did what I had to do to prove my sanity and get released from the hospital.
In religious terms, a kundalini awakening is a dark night of the soul, and there’s many written accounts of various mystics experiencing this process.
In my experience, other yoga teachers are the least likely to know anything about Kundalini.

Handling those increased levels of prana means focusing on what you need to do to bring yourself into physical balance.
This helps to harmonise you with a grounded, sane environment and gets rid of any excess energy in a really safe manner.
Driving was freaky because there were so many lights on the roads – especially in Auckland! I had some serious shadow-work that needed to be done… and at times, this work threatened to overwhelm me.
Ask yourself if you’re willing to experience all kinds of weird wonderful and not so wonderful physical, mental and emotional symptoms and signs. Her passion is liberation in this lifetime through an every day path of dissolving layers of tension into greater and greater freedom and joy.
You specified to cut out all intoxicants but I believe marijuana isn’t considered an intoxicant. And Kundalini can be very destructive, especially to our egos, attachments, fears, limiting beliefs and ideas.
Explanations put forward for why worship of this animal is so widespread differ greatly, with some looking to science for explanations and others seeking answers from the spirit world. Graham Hancock, on the other hand, points out that snakes appear very frequently in DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) trips and Ayahuasca visions which he and many shamans believe give us access to the spirit world or other dimensions. Nonetheless, the fact that snakes are revered and worshipped around the globe still remains an interesting subject and one worth asking questions about.
Also, at the ancient Hindu temple at Angkor in Cambodia stone carvings of snakes can be found in various places around the temple. The frogs came out and the Rainbow Serpent tickled their bellies which were full of water and that water spilled out and made the land fertile. Following the common themes in representation, it seems that the serpent, in one way or another, was thought to share a connection to divinity or a higher power (whether that be a god, goddess or creative force) and therefore I believe it is possible that the serpent could be a symbol of kundalini or life force energy as well as individual spiritual evolution of the soul. Not only this, the way that the staff is styled with the two snakes entwining themselves around a rod shares similarities to the way Kundalini activation occurs when it winds itself around the spine. And most importantly, could rediscovering this process of kundalini activation, with the understanding of oneness and realisation of our true selves that the activation of this life force energy brings, change society into a more loving and compassionate one? By bringing awareness through information, her goal is to help humanity understand the power within themselves and assist in the transition that is now occurring.
Kundalini can make the dark side in you a magnificent dark giant that will do its best to terrorize you and frighten you. So as you come into this know what is happening and give your dark side acceptance and the freedom to roam. To lie, or cheat, or hurt another, can hurt the Kundalini person far beyond what is normally felt by folks not yet introduced to it. So it knows what is right and what is wrong inside of this culture you are living in at this time. Because the imagination is also a locus for the fantastic and the fantasies of wish and wonder and the threshold of the dream world a great attempt has been made to ground a person in the everyday five sense physical world by parents all around the world. When one doubts the imagination all other qualities in the same locale are also denigrated. I took it for about three months, and then with the full knowledge of my flatmates and Mum, began to half the dose weekly while monitoring my mental state. I thought I’d had an experience of enlightenment, and now it was gone and life was awful.
Plus people can have all kinds of agendas when they write books or articles so be discerning always. However, I always took comfort from the fact that every single day was always a tiny bit better than the last. May consciousness prevail so we can come through the veil of arrogance and ignorance to the joy and happiness of life.
Through her speaking, writing and teaching, KL focuses on sharing intimate insights of her journey from psychosis to freedom as she maps a path through the landscape of her – and ultimate our – internal world. He said he felt like he was going to die and that he had to balance his vibration because he can’t keep up with it.
This can spin out into our lives and initially make it very difficult to function normally in society. I’m very young and this is a bit scary but thank you to the author for making me feel like I am still sane.
Hancock therefore suggests that possibly the reason why snakes appear so often in various mythologies is due to the fact that many ancient cultures and prehistoric peoples consumed plants that contained DMT in sacred ceremonies. All we can do is speculate and ask questions which is what I intend to do in this article but first let us look at some examples of how snakes are worshipped in various ancient cultures.
It does mean that you are using the senses that God gave you to develop and discern that which isn't available to the physical eye.
Other grounding foods include root vegetables, or certain nuts like brasil nuts and almonds. All he does is listen to an inspirational speaker named Abraham Hicks and now all her words is all that consumes his head. I didn’t know what was happening to me at the time but it felt like my brain was moving ten times faster than it ever had before for about two months. You will make it through, it will change, and there are people out there who understand and care. I shall revisit the relationship between snake worship and Kundalini activation at the end of the article and explain why I believe there is a connection between the two. Anyone inside of the Kundalini can attest that not everything they experience is able to be viewed by anyone other than themselves. Every morning the tribe gathers to discuss the night's dreams and these dreams are taken seriously.
I felt connected to the Universe and gained many valuable insights, as if they were channeled to me. It all started after finally processing some long-buried pain after an emotionally tumultuous summer, the jerking motions beginning when I called a then-friend on his lack of moral center at dinner. I am a science-based person who is skeptical of everything, but things happened that I have no other explanation for other than to say – I am now convinced there is Something rather than nothing guiding some of us in some way. In many ways, I feel spiritually repaired and believe my mission in life is to be a Helper wherever I can doing the will of whatever is guiding us out there or deep inside..
I don’t resonate with any of the dogma of the ancient faiths, but the lessons are still vital in our time. I live in a large city too far from nature and don’t always have the energy to get into nature as I long to. It was truly the strangest, most intense, and scariest experience of my life and fortunately the Universe did not give me more than I could handle, but it was terrifying and surreal along the way.
When you are in a grandiose delusion for a brief time you actually believe you are that person. Since this k stuff started, I have developed a borderline personality disorder and am now pretty much bipolar.
