Explosive Kundalini Rising In Yoga Class Today
As I looked around in class today I noticed the students were all experienced with Kundalini Yoga. Although from a Yogic perspective the few months they have been learning and practicing Kundalini Yoga is not much, given the power of this system, I know it is not insignificant either. What this allowed, of course, was for me to take the class up a notch in terms of level and difficulty. I also know that many of these now experienced students actually relish the challenge of more advanced Kundalini Yoga Kriyas, so this was the perfect chance to teach them that.
I started class with a new pranayama breathing exercise and also decided to vary the traditional Spinal warm-ups that we do. In general, a Kundalini Yoga teacher practices all the exercises with the class. This of course serves to demonstrate the exercise, but it also lets an adept teacher raise his level of energy, thus serving to uplift the overall energy of the entire class and participants. Usually I can only participate in a limited capacity because my primary responsibility is to ensure the students are doing everything correctly and safely. Today though was a lucky day for me, since the students were sufficiently advanced, I too was able to give myself more to the yoga and pranayama practice.
In the varied spinal warm-up, I was demonstrating a different way to do Yoga Camel Ride (Spine Flex Yoga Exercise) when the exercise began to take over. Once I brought it to a particular pace and rhythm it triggered the energy pathways (nadis) to open and then Kundalini Shakti began rising in waves up my back and flooding my brain. Once this began, the exercise propelled itself and more and more Kundalini streamed into my higher centers (chakras). Instantly, drastic changes began taking place in consciousness as I felt the enormity and power of unadulterated infinite mind. My entire system was flushed with energy and I would have gone further, but, I had a class to teach :-). So I gladly returned to the company of my beloved students and we went on from there.
The important point I want to make here is that you must work to authenticate spiritual teachings for yourself so that you can make them your very own. To just run around and quote other Yoga Masters and parrot various claims is immature and your teachings will lack conviction. Your goal has to be to stand on your own and be authentic. When the teachings become authentic, you will also be able to contribute to them and then you be original. Of course study the teachings and learn from others, but, endeavor always to make the knowledge first hand by direct experience so that you become a true source of light and inspiration.
Why does it feel that I am pulling on electricity. Sometimes I feel a metallic taste on my tongue
Trust Ma Kundalini to do what is best for you. Don’t chase the experiences, just keep up your practice. She will do what is right for you, follow your inner voice.
This is the first time i came across to this website and its seems very much useful for a person who is in Kundalini shakti awakening.
I am follower of kundalini and for me she is mother, the experiences that i am having is as below.
1. In Dyaan (meditation) firstly i see violet rays every time.
2. when dyaan go intensive i am able to see a bright silver spot like the end of needle in the center of violet rays.
3. My ajna chakra bits like a heart…i am feeling that some one is pumping on my center eye and its keep on doing that. If i takes my direction away then it remains for some time then goes.
4. If i open and close the eye again the pumping starts again on my center eye.
5. In meditation i feel my body vibrates for few seconds.
since december 2008 i am not feeling any of this upto now, i dont know what went wrong and how to experience it again.
I want to experience Nirvikalpa Samadhi… i dont know how i will reach that stage.
Yes all of what you describe above is certainly associated with Kundalini awakening. Glad to see others making breakthroughs as well.
Thanks for sharing with us all.
Today i experienced a kundalini awakening when I meditated myself into theta, then I began to nod my head in a type of rhythm that was very soothing and unintentional. I went with it and it started to feel as though it was taking over me. I then went into a short ecstacy and was flooded with white light which I saw clearly with my third eye and felt it. I started to feel paralysis and tingling/vibrating and my heart beat picked up. Usually I trigger this while in theta, by looking directly into the back of my eye lids, and my eyes suddenly become cross-eyed and look downwards towards my nose. This is the first time it has happened while sitting up and it is also the nicest it has ever felt….
I think your website title speaks for the gist of this article. I Am My Own Master – Self-Mastery! Great stuff.
Thanks for your feedback,
Beautiful experience! Thanks for sharing this. I especially liked what you said in the last paragraph–not becoming a parrot and make the teachings once own experiences. Through the process of these experiences, eventually, become one’s own master. Great article!
