The Becoming of the Spirit
The energy, as it ascends through the spine takes a three-fold transformation. First, widespread and restless at the base of the hips then subtle and calm at the space of the heart.
The Kundalini, assuming the shape of a small ball, shall then crawl its way up through the neck and the moment it pierces through the ears, it becomes so thin and absolute with a mind of its own. At this point, the senses lose most of their control over the physical.
This stage is critical. Breathe suddenly and the confinement bursts. The mind wanders and gets distracted, the senses return. Then, everything shall be lost and you have to start the long process over again. You will be lucky if it gets back.
The various Bandhas work together in order to keep the organs functioning, otherwise, the person might lose consciousness. The Kundalini shall continue its ascent as its two tips (it feels more of a head to me) flood both sides of the ears with a loud deafening sound and a tingle of electrical current.
From there, they will pierce through the hemispheres of the brain and shall creep up and down, harnessing more power from the core of the hips. The whole of the body front the feet up to the head shall be covered with electricity.
A burning force of the Kundalini gathers right at the very centre of the forehead between the eyebrows tickling the frontal lobe of the brain. While this happens, a soothing cold line of electricity could be felt passing through the backs of the throat and up to the top of the head. All these electrical sensations shall then unite at the crown.
Interesting, the crown is not the topmost point of the head but around two inches below it and a few inches higher than the tip of the forehead. At the crown, they become one powerful vibrating current (feels ecstatic, actually), it feels like its drilling a hole in the skull. One could feel the soul exiting the body.
The breath ceases intermittently. The Bandhas and the understanding of the meditator of the whole experience shall keep him alive. He has mastered his breath so powerfully he could allow himself to die, consciously in a wakeful state. He is so experienced and confident of his way back, so he explores further until he crosses his limit. He knows and acknowledges his limitations so he could willingly and easily get detached. Beyond this is not wise. He needs to go back for him to share this beautiful spiritual experience.
As this happens, the mind could wander around places, spin, connect with other subtle energetic forms, see its host body and its energetic equivalence do two different things at once.
The trance shall reach its peak and everything stops. The mind would go totally blank, all it could see are two planes of shades. The white covering the horizon and the black below it. The image is akin to seeing a bright eclipse. The sound takes a humming transformation.
Then finally, a sound of a bell could be heard ringing in even intervals from the upper right corner of the head.
All these happen almost simultaneously. The whole experience lasts quickly too, few minutes tops.
There are so many roads leading to the same experience. Some people are so gifted they are naturally sensitive to subtle energetic manifestations. Although, my take is that the aspirant could manage it more effectively if he learns it from scratch.
I chose the path where I have a platform to work on. That platform is the physical body. The end goal is the same. Kundalini Awakening is an inevitable part whether be it through pure concentration and meditation or the process which starts with the tangible such as the physical body.
So what happens after the trance?
The meditator shall return to his old body. But he shall never see the world the same ever again. His priorities could change. His life goals could even take a complete turn around.
All life's mysteries are actually realities hidden behind the senses. He could just slip in and out of the trance whenever he meditates. It is the effect of this profound experience over his spirit which lasts forever.
The Principles of Anatomical and Energetic Alignment
Discipline, Dedication, and Devotion. The method where I build my practice, teach my students and develop future teachers.
I do not bubble wrap my students. I handle them firmly, respectfully and compassionately. I started really low so I could definitely relate to a beginner. I never even had a teacher myself. Experience is my teacher. Nothing is impossible for the undying aim to achieve more. It is difficult but very possible.
Everyone has a calling and it will come knocking at the right time. Mine happened early at age nine. I pursued it through the toughest circumstances. I teach myself to be able to teach others. The grace happened unexpectedly and it comes with a mission. That is how I nourish my teachings. If the mission is lacking, inspiration is dull.
If the calling is knocking already, I may be able to help.
