1997: KUNDALINI AND THE AWAKENING OF SPIRIT

By Karin Hannigan To be published in Issue 67 of WellBeing magazine, due for release in March 1997. Used with permission. As humanity accelerates towards the millennium, more and more people are reporting spiritual experiences and opening into awareness that physical reality is only a fraction of all that is. How does spiritual emergence begin? No one knows for certain just what kick starts the unfolding of spiritual potential. For some, spiritual emergence is a gentle and integrated process which develops as a natural consequence of many years dedicated to service and prayer or meditation under the guidance of a teacher or guru. Others may experience a more abrupt awakening, possible due to practices which awaken transformative energy before the person has done the necessary groundwork. It is thought that practices such… Read More

How to Awaken the Kundalini

Waking Times Video – The human energetic body, also referred to as the pranic sheath or astral body, is an intricate network of 72,000 nadis that facilitate the movement of prana, the vital energy of the human body. The nadis, also referred to as astral tubes, astral nerves or meridians, come together in seven energy centers called the chakras which are located along the central canal, the Sushumna, which corresponds to the spine in the physical body. As the Kundalini energy rises through Sushumna, large amounts of high octane energy reach the brain and assist in higher spiritual pursuits. These videos will give you an idea of what this process entails, although for most it takes years of practice to experience a true Kundalini rising. ~~ Help Waking Times to raise the vibration by… Read More

1995: KUNDALINI SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

by El Collie Many individuals whose Kundalini has been unexpectedly unleashed DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING, and the prevailing social ignorance about this multidimensional transformative process makes it hard to find medical or alternative health practitioners or spiritual advisors who recognize the symptoms, particularly when they are strongly physical. Many people know that the risen Kundalini flings open gates to all sorts of mystical, paranormal and magical vistas but few realize it can also dramatically impact the body. A large percentage of Shared Transformation subscribers have reported long bouts of strange illness as well as radical mental, emotional, interpersonal, psychic, spiritual and lifestyle changes. Over and again we hear stories of frustrating, sometimes desperate visits to doctors, healers, counselors, etc. who neither understood nor were able to help with the myriad… Read More

KUNDALINI THE JOY OF CELIBACY AND YOKING THE LIFE FORCE TO ENLIGHTENMENT

By Yogi Tom/Silver Dawn Media I found that once I had sat out the immediate crisis of desire that inevitably arises with the practice of celibacy if one has previously enjoyed an active sex life, that I had to master the very esoteric art of “inner sex”. Even among knowledgeable Western Tantric and kundalini yogis celibacy can sometimes be under-rated or undersold, when traditionally it has always been a useful, even essential, means of spiritual development that can have quite dramatic effects – usually positive, but potentially negative and dangerous, if one doesn’t understand the esoteric nature of sexo-yogic techniques and the Pandora’s Box of the mind they can open up. Furthermore, given its association with repression and “unnaturalness” in Western popular culture, celibacy in general has a bad image. When kundalini awakens… Read More

TANTRIC BALANCING THROUGH MASSAGE

– INTRODUCTION – By Bill Peay He who realizes the truth of the body can then come to know the truth of the universe. You, as a human being, are an amazing integration of physical substance, spiritual essence, and mental/emotional awareness. Each of these elements interact within every person in an interdependent relationship which, when taken together as a whole, constitutes what we consider the uniqueness of human life. It is upon this foundation in logical reasoning that the entire approach to Tantric Balancing through Massage, presented here, is based. When you consider that all human life is biologically and anatomically similar, yet uniquely different in many subtle aspects, you can see that, no matter what a person’s race or color, each of us are physically put together the same way. It is… Read More
