We are in the era of Kundalini awakening. This experience used to be a very rare phenomenon and required lifetimes of dedicated spiritual practice literally for one to achieve this experience. Nowadays, spontaneous Kundalini awakenings are more common, especially if one joins Shaktipakt-type sessions with advanced spiritual teachers who transmit the awakened energy. No long studies are required anymore; rather, an open mind and a belief in a higher power.
Kundalini awakening occurs when our feminine and masculine aspects merge, and the Shakti energy (which resides in the root chakra or end of your spine) is released. Some experience dramatic Kundalini awakenings (I had one in 1997), and some experience a gentler process called Kundalini rising. Kundalini awakening is always an iterative process, even if one experiences an initial big awakening experience. I believe the Shakti energy is always “rising” as we evolve constantly, and the entire world is awakening, accelerating each other’s process. Once humanity reaches a tipping point in Kundalini energy, everyone will be awakened instantly; at that point, the world will be dramatically different.
What helps to trigger the Kundalini energy? We do not know exactly, but resolving energetic blocks in one’s body seems to help. For example, my first Kundalini experience occurred when I expressed my truth (which was challenging) against my conditioning, and then my spine started shaking violently for 5-10 minutes. I believe this was due to certain energetic blocks being released within my energy body, which then allowed Kundalini to awaken.
Many people get Kundalini awakenings through Shaktipat by receiving sessions from people like Abdy Electriciteh. Some of my clients have experienced Kundalini energy being awakened in the sessions I do. Shaktipat is the fast path to liberation. The so-called slow path is the traditional path through meditation, Yoga and mindfulness; however, this can take ages. We really have to awaken faster on this planet, so the fast path is now becoming more widely available to everyone. There are much more teachers who can awaken individuals everywhere on this planet.
How do you know your Kundalini is awakened? Well, I can list a few well-known indicators (but there are many more). If one’s Kundalini is awakened, one usually experiences some of the following things:
- A feeling of energy running through the spine. This is an unmistakable sensation, so if you are in doubt, you do not yet experience this.
- A feeling of energy running in different parts of the body (typically the energy moves and “works through” different areas of the body)
- Various sounds in the head and some people experience tinnitus (just tinnitus does not mean you can Kundalini experience, only when it is clearly part of the other symptoms)
- An elevated feeling and increased psychic abilities.
- Synchronicity, clairvoyance and other psychic phenomena become part of your daily routine.
- A feeling of oneness with everything, inner contentment and happiness prevail. Outside things bother one less and less.
- A feeling of not being here but somewhere else (as the energy elevates a more prominent aspect of our perception takes place from higher dimensions)
- Random laughter, sadness and other intense emotions emerge suddenly without warning.
- Unable to function normally when the energy gets really intense (one may have to stay in bed all day at times)
- Inability to think, feelings of expansion and losing one’s self
- Feelings of going mad, a sense of losing it completely
- Experiencing a total loss of control in life, everything you try seems to fail (don’t worry it just indicates for you to learn to trust the divine more than your logical mind)
There are much more symptoms, but these are the most common ones based on my experience.
OK to the practical things then. So, how do you increase your Shakti before or after your initial Kundalini experience? Well, the key thing for me is not to want it. As if we want it we enter the mirror world of our ego (read my blog article about it) and we remain in the loop of the ego. So to let go, surrender or, as Abdy says, ALLOW. This means to live life normally.
What I do believe, however, will help is the understanding that the World is a mirror. Every interaction and every “issue” one experiences with one’s partner, family, colleagues etc., are just a reflection of one’s own shadow. Looking into and owning your own shadow rather than denying it will help pinpoint where the energetic blocks prevent the energy from rising in you. You can then heal these blocks with a healer or do energy movement techniques such as Yoga, Chi kung or Jason Quitt’s Egyptian Postures of Power. These activities will help you to unlock the energetic knots in your body.
I do NOT believe things like Kundalini Yoga or Kriya Yoga really help. Many people have done Kriya for 30 years and have not experienced anything. There are some forms of Kriya Yoga which I believe can have a positive influence, but as Abdy says, if you do something to get closer to God, it will not take you there. The website of Ennio Nimis is beneficial if you are interested in Kriya Yoga. Also, I recommend reading the book Kriya Yoga exposed to learn more about the pitfalls of Yoga and also how to avoid them. Some form of Kriya can be helpful, but be careful about gurus, as no guru can help you.
However, gentle Hatha Yoga can help when Kundalini is rising. It helps to distribute the energies and open the energetic blocks in the body gently. Whatever you choose to do, please do it for the JOY of doing it, not with a plan to achieve something (this is the trick of the ego, which keeps in the Wheel of Life). Yoga Nidra can be helpful too. Yoga Nidra is about Yogic sleep and relates to astral travel and OBE. There are many good Yoga Nidra teachers and recordings available. I use some Yoga Nidra tapes myself.
One thing on this path that is very important is NOT to believe what others say. Especially those who have yet to have a Kundalini experience. Most people are often just in their own “prison”, and they do not want you to awaken, and they give advice which will not allow you to progress. Peer pressure is one of the strongest prisons on this planet; people want others to behave similarly. Awakening experiences in life often lead to completely changing one’s friends. This can be a healthy thing to do rather than sticking to stagnant relationships energetically. Life is about constant change, and allowing the FLOW of life rather than being attached to something or someone is the right thing to do.
One thing that certainly helps is to move out of the city and live in nature as disconnected from the modern World as possible. This certainly helps. Daily walks in nature and tree-hugging are for sure a good thing. Also, working with animals and children can be very beneficial as they are more disconnected from the Matrix.
I have also recently re-discovered ancient secrets within the archaic rune alphabet. These secrets tell the story of liberation and awakening, giving lots of guidance about what to do and what not to do. I am writing a book about this, and I will start free webinars on this subject when the time is right.
Another thing that helps me is meditating with Serpentine Greenstone, as it greatly activates my Shakti energy. The stones need to be quite large, however and natural. Unfortunately, I have only found suitable stones from the magical Isle of Iona and Pelion, Greece – these are not your usual stones from eBay. Not sure if the name Serpentine has a connection here or not – it is possible. Something to research in the future.
The ancient shamanic technique of gazing may also be beneficial. For example, I have noticed that gazing at Sri Yantra sacred geometry certainly does something to the third eye, which is an essential chakra for awakening.
