Kundalini, maybe it's the most speculated topics apart from meditation and yoga.
Kundalini is a form of cosmic energy which maintains the life of creatures in these chain of universes. Kundalini energy is also known as 'Prana' or 'Life force.'
The chief difference between Cosmic energy and Kundalini is;
"Cosmic energy is the energy that bears this vast cosmos. Kundalini is the customized form of this which bears life."
Kundalini awakening happens by efficient supply of cosmic(Kundalini) energy, which activates your chakras and thereby you gain access to the Earth's energy.
So, where does this energy reside?
As rightly told by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev;
"Kundalini is everywhere."
For us, it resides in Root Chakra/Muladhara Chakra. The Root chakra, which is the energy center located near the coccyx, acts as an entrance for the Cosmic energy, thereby activates Kundalini. Kundalini is also the energy of 'Spiritual Consciousness.'
This energy goes through Brahma/Sushumna Nadi, from the Root chakra to the Crown chakra on the top of the head. Interestingly, there's a mention of Kundalini energy in Gayatri Mantra as 'Dhee' energy or Spiritual Consciousness. Here it's;
Essence of Gayatri Mantra.
AUM Bhoohu Bhuva Suvaha Tath Savituhu Varenyam। Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dheeyoyonaha Prachodayaath ।।
Aum- Aksharaha,(indestructible) Bhoohu - earth Bhuvaha - intermediate sky Suvaha - Heaven Tath - that Savituhu- Sun Bhargaha- radiance or light Dheemahi- meditate on Dheeyoyonaha- intelligence or spiritual consciousness Prachodayaath- Awaken
'I meditate on the Lord Narayana (AUM) who illuminates the sun who in turn illuminate earth, intermediate sky & heaven with his divine radiance, to awaken my intelligence and spiritual consciousness.'
Sage Vishwamitra is accredited with the cognizance of Gayatri Mantra.
AUM- Aksharaha, Lord Vishnu, or Para Brahma.
Lord Krishna says - Aham Tam Eeshwaranam Paramam Mahesharam.
'I am the Supreme Lord (Parama Eeeshwaraha) of all Lords.'
Kundalini awakening over a period of time, completely cleanses chakras, the body parts and the energy channels/Nadis.
Some of the benefits Kundalini energy awakening include:
1. Gain insights and intuition As the energy rises up the spine, you may gain insights and strong inner feelings about what to do or which decision to make. It is beyond the intellect, a kind of divine guidance that comes in the form of synchronicity, strange signals, or a strong sense of certainty about following a certain path. Your guardian angel guide you towards everything. By the grace of my Guru & Gurus, I've been guided towards my destiny.
2. Freedom from desires
Physical desires keep us bound to the material world. The more we desire and consume to satisfy our senses, the further we are pulled from the spiritual realm. There's no end to human desires, and also to our frustrations.
Kundalini awakening comes with a great pull towards the spiritual and the world of the senses becomes less and less appealing. Thus it becomes easier to control those animal cravings.
3. Psychic abilities
Some people experience psychic abilities like seeing the future, hearing other people’s thoughts, or observing scenes that are outside the realm of the physical senses. If this happens, I advise you to be careful. It is not a sign of true spiritual progress, but can actually be a distraction. Don’t get excited or attached to these things. It's a subordinate product of Kundalini awakening. Best to just ignore them or let them go. Only way telepathy helps you is; you can communicate with Guru's, ancestors, and spirits.
4. Greater compassion
You develop a greater sense of connection to everything and everyone, which creates a strong sense of compassion for other living creatures. You begin to feel very strongly that you want to care for and help other people. Especially, if you are a Heyoka empath, you feel very strongly. This is a much more powerful and meaningful experience that developing siddhis or abilities. It's very important to balance your compassion. You need to recharge every day by practicing meditation.
The Universe is a great engine of creativity and you are a manifestation of that. As kundalini rises, you become more in touch with universal creativity which you can allow to flow through you. You are not a normal person creating something great, but a receptacle, channeling and expressing the great creativity of the Divine through your body an mind. You can receive information about vedic scriptures like Upanishads or events, while meditating or through communicating with your Gurus.
6. Greater magnetism
You will find that you have much more power to attract the things you want. You find your spiritual as well as life purpose. You find knowledge about your root incarnation. You experience strong ego annihilation.
When we are trapped in the prison of ego and delusion, we repel the things we want with our worried and negative thoughts. Of course, our desires begin to shift as the kundalini rises so instead of wishing for a huge house and a shiny, red car, our desires become more simple and we want to love, serve, and grow.
7. Waves of bliss
Sometimes in meditation, or even just in the midst of every day life, we can experience deep waves of all-consuming bliss. It knocks you off your feet. It is such a wonderful feeling where you know that everything is unfolding perfectly, that there are no problems, and that everything is in its right place. It is impossible to put into words.
"It's a priceless experience to meditate, to communicate with your guardian angels and masters."
8. Bursts of love
You might feel spontaneous bursts of love. It can be love for a certain object such as a person, animal, place, or thing. But sometimes it is a feeling of love that is free from any object. It is just love and it fills your being. You may find yourself with tears in your eyes when one of these bursts comes along.
Credits- Pinterest 9. Desire to serve Instead of being lost in your ego, worrying about what you need to do with your life, you just want to serve other people. You know that true joy comes from helping people. And in our world right now, people need a lot of help, so there are plenty of opportunities to serve. 10. Liberation In the end, when the kundalini has risen all the way to the top of the head, over the course of many years and lifetimes, you will enter into the deepest state of meditation known as 'Samadhi.' At that point, you will remember who you are beyond this dream world, and you will be in a permanent state of calm, joyful watchfulness.
"Kundalini Awakening releases you from this viscous painful chain of birth and rebirth."
Kundalini awakening is fantasized. Let me tell you, it's not a cake walk. We need to suffer and burn all our Chith, Prarabdha and Sanchita Karmas. Initially, it's almost like going through hell and eventually getting normal.
"You need enter darkness, stay there for a while, to find the light within."
