Kundalini Awakening Symptoms

Symptoms of Kundalini Awakening 

Real Life Experiences & Descriptions of Kundalini Rising

Are you going through a kundalini awakening episode or experience?  Let’s find out… 

Kundalini awakening symptoms are truly a very intriguing subject.  Really there is no correct answer to the question, “What are the symptoms of Kundalini Rising?”, as thankfully, each of us is absolutely unique and thus, on a unique trajectory on the path to Kundalini Awakening.  That said, there are some common kundalini experiences that are often reported, which I would like to share with you in this article.

Although we can draw up endless lists of symptoms from third party accounts, I would like to instead make this series about kundalini symptoms that you or I have actually experienced.  In this article, I will give a recent account from one of my students about what she experienced shortly after class, and then I will add my own kundalini experiences and observations as well. 

In the comments section, I encourage you to add any kundalini awakening experiences or symptoms you have felt, so others can better understand what they might be going through.  Here is the recent email I received from my student, Aida:

Aida’s Experience of Kundalini Awakening:

I am a student of the “Gentle Kundalini Class”. I just finished taking a series of exercise specifically for the spine.
As I left the class I felt energized as I usually feel after each class, but this time it was a little different, I was feeling extra aware of my surrounding. Like a light turned on. My back was so straight. It lasted all day.
If I could go to class every morning I would go. It makes my day start right in every way. And there are times when I am not feeling like going to class and I push myself to go and do not regret it.
Thank you for being my teacher.
Aida D. 

For those interested, here is a link to the Spinal Warmup Kundalini Yoga Kriya we did in class that day.  Thank you Aida, for sharing your personal experiences with us.

This particular experience of kundalini is very interesting and significant.  This is because it is the common experience of advanced meditation and of kundalini yoga.  In the article, Powerful Kundalini Yoga Battles Profound Zen Meditation, I described my own such experience with kundalini awakening, but not from doing kundalini yoga, but instead from doing Silent Mind Meditation!

Aida’s experience points at the two things that all yoga and meditation boils down to.  Energy and Awareness. 

My favorite description of Kundalini Yoga is, “The Yoga of Awareness,” and as you see from her account, she felt more aware, as the energy of kundalini had risen up her spine.  In meditation, it is the same.  The demand for intense awareness, in order to comprehend the thought process via direct perception, leads to energy (kundalini) rising up and elongating the spine.  Awareness then follows.

Jiddu Krishnamurti describes this experience of kundlaini energy flowing up the spine as “The rush of water filling up and thus causing a pipe to stand erect.”

When we insist that the spine be straight during meditation, it is simply to facilitate this awakening and thus, to assist in being more aware.  I have experienced kundalini rising and puling up with such force, during meditation, that it sometimes make me feel as if I am going to be launched right off the ground or as if it’s going to pull my head off and up into the sky.

Kundalini Awakening in Meditation

Symptoms of Kundalini Awakening:

I am going to describe some of the physical symptoms my students or I have felt due to kundalini awakening.  I know there are many emotional and mental symptoms as well, and you are welcome to share those with us in the comments section below.  I am grouping the experiences into 3 categories, common, uncommon and rare, according to what I have observed.

Common Kundalini Awakening Symptoms:

  • Tingling in the body and brain region.  Also sometimes described as ants walking, tickling energy or flushes of energy.  The brain being flushed with energy is quite pleasant :-).
  • Heat or cold in the system, or running along various channels and chakra centers.
  • Fluttering or twitching of muscles.
  • Pinching or burning in various regions of the body or brain.

Uncommon Kundalini Awakening Symptoms:

  • Pressure in the Third Eye Region (Ajna Chakra).  This is pressure, tingling or other sensation in the center of the forehead.  Can go on for years (14 years and counting so far for me).  Caution: If the pressure, due to certain practices, intensifies to uncomfortable levels you feel are “immense”, you should cease that practice and consult a competent kundalini yoga teacher.
  • Sudden bursts of energy anywhere in the body.  These are almost always short lived, from a few seconds to a few minutes.
  • Spontaneous yoga asans or kundalini yoga movements.  They may come on spontaneously, or they may take over, as if on auto-pilot when one is practicing  Kundalini Yoga Kriyas or Exercises (For an example see article: Explosive Kundalini Rising in Class Today).
  • Kundalini Shakti rising up and elongating the spine.
  • Incredible feeling of love and desire for your partner (not ordinary lust, alcohol induced or otherwise :-).  Usually comes upon you spontaneously, deep in the night.  Sex feels like it’s the first such experience and the intense feelings of attraction emanate from somewhere beyond yourself.
  • Unfortunately, pain in the lower back, back of the neck and headaches.

Rare Kundalini Awakening Symptoms:

  • Experience of divine light within.  Very intense light, usually pure white and incredibly beautiful.  I call it the Radiation of the Lord.
  • Tremendous vibratory energy (sometimes feels like it’s coming from the inner ears).  Very blissful, but can intensify to the point where it would completely overwhelm your consciousness if you let it.
  • Spontaneous bliss, intensely pleasurable.
  • This one is a bit scary.  Complete paralysis of the body.  Complete immobility and rigidity takes place.  As with the all consuming vibratory energy, it requires some courage to allow.
  • This one is exceedingly rare.  I have experienced it only once in my life, and have only ever read about it being experienced by one other – the master of awareness, G. I. Gurdjieff.  The arms and legs churn like that of a baby.  It happens naturally and cannot be simulated.  It is also intensely pleasurable and quite a remarkable experience.

There are of course a wide range of transcendental experiences, some of which you will find described in the category Spiritual Enlightenment Experiences.  Above, I have provide those that are more commonly associated with kundalini awakening, although many would argue, including Swami Vivekananda, that all enlightenment experiences have to do with kundalini entering the brain region in some capacity.

So if you have experienced some kundalini symptoms as well, please do share them with us below.  I think it will benefit others identify if what they are going through is actually symptoms of the ever mysterious kundalini awakening.

    Last night when I laid down with my partner to go to sleep, I experienced something very unusual. It wasn’t sexual in any way, but was more pleasurable than any sexual experience I’ve ever had. We had snuggled up as we do on most nights with my head on his chest and our arms around eachother. I was trying to go to sleep and I started thinking about my surroundings, how it felt to be laying there with him, my breathing pattern, his heart beat, etc. I was taking long, slow, rhythmic breaths and it started to feel like his heart was beating on the top of my head. It felt like I had two hearts, one in my cheast and one right above me. All of the sudden I was hot, like my body was in a fire, bathed in light. It wasn’t painful and I wasn’t sweating, this heat I felt was only on the inside. It kind of reminded me of the way a child in the womb might feel; warm, safe, loved, protected, and the sound of your mothers heart over your head. It was so intensely pleasurable I would have never believed the much joy was possible if I hadn’t experienced it for myself. It was as though Matt and I were forming this energy field of light and love and there was no force in the world strong enough to hurt us or pull us apart. I laid there for around 30min experiencing this sensation before it became to much to handle and I laid flat on my back. I feel asleep wondering what the heck had just happend. The first thing I did was look up what it felt like to have your kundalini rise. I’d heard of it and some of the symptoms of it in earlier years, but have never experienced it till now. It’s nothing to be frightened of, it’s just one of the most beautiful, natural experiences that can occurred in life.

    When I started to experience what I later found out after intensive soul searching and some online research to be Kundalini symptoms, I was, to put it quite bluntly, terrified. The height of their intensity was in November, October, and December of 2010. I awoke suddenly in the middle of the night to some intensely pleasurable vibrations of a sexual nature, when my wife was sound asleep next to me. Since I knew it wasn’t coming from either of us, I was disturbed, putting it mildly. The next few months were followed by me not being able to sleep without the light on. I felt very strong waves of unseen energy traveling from the soles of my feet toward my head. It was like being in a massage chair. I had nightmares, and I couldn’t shake the feeling of being watched.

    I went through some nights or days when I was home alone with some intense kriyas. That’s what terrified me more than anything at the time. I had no control of what was happening, and I didn’t yet understand why. My felt like it was elongating. I would go through periods of spontaneous stretching. I was also experiencing some painful aches in my left side, just under my ribcage, which my doctor had no medical explanation for, after she put her stethoscope to where the pain was. That physical pain only lasted a few months,
    thankfully. I went through some horrible neck and back pain for those few months, too. At times, I couldn’t even stand up straight.

    Here’s a list of other symptoms I was experiencing at the time:

    1. spontaneous popping sounds coming from my nose
    2. itchy crawly sensations on my left leg, between my eyebrows, cheeks, and my neck.
    3. what felt like tremendous heat around my left leg and foot. I went through an agonizing forklift injury to my left foot in 2003 that was followed by a long bout of depression, over not being able to support my family the way I was used to, so that needed tremendous healing, and it has in more ways than one today. I didn’t lose my foot, but the crushing injury shattered several bones in my heel, severing my ligaments, and liquifying the soft tissues inside my foot. I shouldn’t be able to run on it today, but I can sprint today from home plate to first base. That shouldn’t be possible, considering the severity of the injury.
    4. intense ringing in my ears
    5. spontaneous emotional trauma and anxiety (sudden memories cropping up of past trauma of sex abuse my brother and I endured at a daycare in the early seventies)
    6. tachycardia (rapid heart rate of 100 beats a minute or more)
    7. severe headaches
    8. seeing black blobs of color with my eyes closed that were beyond dark (fears that needed to be released that manifested into dark entities that I could feel and sense)
    9. unexplained twitches unrelated to anything like Parkinson’s disease
    10. being jerked awake at times, almost like my arm was suddenly pulled out of socket
    11. severe lack of sleep
    12. considered checking into a mental hospital, and so glad I didn’t
    13. considered an exorcism
    14. severe lack of concentration, like I couldn’t retain any new information
    15. what felt like electrical sparks around my head and in between my eyebrows
    16. spontaneous orgasms that would go on for hours when I was alone with no stimulation or visual. (reminded me of puberty, without a doubt, although I was now 40)
    17. nocturnal emissions (wet dreams)
    18. spontaneous yoga positions, although I’d never taken yoga (something I also experienced often around the age of 10-15)

    The list goes on, believe me, but these were the most intense. Then, an amazing thing happened at about 3 in the morning. I had been lying in bed terrified, when I was suddenly out of my body up near the ceiling in the corner of my bedroom. I looked down to see an intensely beautiful being rubbing my forehead, comforting me. I saw what I can only describe as her wings, stretched down past my toes. My entire bedroom was lit up in the most amazing blue light I can even imagine. In an instant, I was next to my kids’ room, where the light was a beautiful shade of orange. Then, I was in the living room, gazing down at my daughter as she was bathed by a brilliant white light, where she had fallen asleep. Then, I ended up in the kitchen to see an amazing shade of green throughout that space. Before I knew it, I was back in my body.

    From that moment on, I have been in awe. I released my fears. I truly did experience a “dark night of the soul.” If you’re going through anything like that, and you’re scared, just release your fear. Fill your heart and thoughts with love. Love vibrates at a very high frequency. In the coming months, I started to sleep soundly all night long. I started to see auras with the naked eye, as I do today quite clearly. My aura is the most amazing neon green I can imagine, and lately I’ve been seeing my aura turn more blue, and it’s getting stronger and bigger all the time. I’m in school right now, working on medical assisting classes, and I plan on using that as a stepping stone to move into nursing.

    There is a spiritual awakening going on. I can feel it every moment. Trust your heart. Trust your intuition. Love yourself as you deserve to be loved, so that you can share that with others. Lately, I’ve been able to see brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green with my eyes closed, and especially during and shortly after meditation. I see these with the naked eye just as easily. The universe all around us is teeming with life. I trust in that with every ounce of my intuition. It’s something that I’ve always had a gut feeling about. It’s nice to know it’s true. Namaste and God bless you always! – Don Winslow

    I think I am having a Kundalini experience. I’ve always been sensitive and somewhat intuitive, have sensed energy, have had premonitions, clairvoyant dreams, on occassion have felt tingles on the left side of my body and in my palms, and hear ringing/tones in my ear (mostly the left one) etc. but recently something out of the ordinary occurred.
    I had an emotional breakup of a relationship and months later I sensed a presence in my room, like a person was standing behind me, I was awake at the time and I saw a man standing in the room (it was a somewhat fuzzy image) and it was comforting, not frightening. I was also noticing that I was experiencing more tingling in my hands, face, and legs.. and I had a strange dream experience that I (my energy field) was being shaken somehow. I was then awakend from sleep one night while I was completely dreaming about something else…because it felt like someone was having sex with me, I felt it in my energy field, it wasn’t a “sex dream”…and i continued to feel it when I woke up.
    With in a few days of these experiences, I received a phone call from the person I had broken up with. The phone call was somewhat emotional and intense but okay. A short while after the phone call I felt intense energy in the room, like I was standing in it, it wasn’t coming from inside of me and it seemed to fill the room. The energy seemed to be directed towards my private parts and it was hard to fall asleep, but it was not painful, just intense. I thought it was my ex at the time and when I thought about the next day it bothered me. Then a few nights afterward I was completely asleep and I felt the intense energy/pressure in my head as if my skull was being squeezed together, my ears were ringing loudly and I began to wake up because of the intensity and I was telling it to “stop” it was so painful….I noticed that the thoughts in my head became garbled, like when a tape from a tape recorders is damaged….or like when you see a comic/cartoon of someone who is knocked out temporarily and they see stars and start mumbling, only that I was able to observe this happening in my head. I thought maybe my ex was doing something….like concentrating on me or something and trying to get info from me or something…..I don’t know. I felt this before when I was awake a few times and in relation to him, but I was completely asleep this time. He is literally telepathic/clairaudient and has natural abilites to hear peoples thoughts and even to listen to conversations of others at will.
    Now I am feeling the tingling in my back and in the back and top of my head…and also sense my third eye a little more prominently than before, but it’s quite mild so it doesn’t disturb me.
    I don’t meditate and went to the internet after these recent experiences and discovered Kundalini.
    It seems odd that I would have this awakening coincide with this relationship….
    I read that Kundalini has to do with Karma….is it possible that it was trying to clear some Karma that arose because of the relationship?? It doesn’t seem to be problematic anymore…maybe because I told it to stop??? I did pray for an angel to come and help me get over the relationship…but I wasn’t expecting that…and I don’t feel anymore or less spiritual than before….is this simply another way our unconscious mind can manifest itself??? What is the alien connection to kundalini???? lots of people seem to feel that aliens are part of it.
    This is a great site….Nice to read and learn from others experiences.

    I’m researching this due to some sort of energy experience and i’m wondering if this might be it. I’m a natural energy sensitive, but these experiences do not involve regular practice of yoga. I am usually physically and energitically aware of my surroundings. This has happened 3 times in the past year and they take hours to calm down-vs your post that mentions’minutes’. There is a built up and then it feels like energy is shooting out of my and feet. I also feel a spiralflow of energy wrapping my body. The last one took 2 days to calm down and left me too open to feel comfortable around anyone. Any thoughts on what this can be?

    i was trying to find an ans to my questions as to why things are happening to me the way they are since childhood i have been scared of snakes petrified i have a phobia one can say.
    i never really thought much of these things before in my teens i was introduced to a sage ( holy man of sorts ) and i told him my dreams of snakes 3 very distinct dreams over and over reoccurring ….. to which he told me that i had a latent energy that has been trying to come out and that i should tap it … i did nothing about it for another few years … meanwhile my life took a down turn and things were very still i found some strength to hold myself up…and while i was at a sleepover one night i had woken up in the middle of the night to find that i just could not move … this has not only happened at my friends but also in my own bed ….. i could not explain it ..,it was as if some heavy object was kept on my chest and i was completely paralyzed from the waist down .. im often riddled by anxiety attacks and now im sure its kundalini that is jumping out coz when i chant a particular affirmation to raise the energy shortly after that i get giddy spells few months ago when i was regularly doing energy raising i had to stop coz i was riddled by giddy spells for a month … hahha i thouhg tit was vertigo but now im beginning to see that it was not that and in fact it is my kundalini which is playing a prank on me …. dont get me wrong i can control it … after reading the uncommon symptoms .. which i have all of now i know for sure that it is kundalini and that im not going mad .. not sometimes all through out the day its like there are voices in my head and talking all the time … im angry now more than often fierce almost like a wild animal …. sometimes i have to calm myself down its like a volcano just wanting to burst all the time …. i rarely get tired …. when i get migraine like headaches i usually resort to my white milky quartz crystal to absorb my excess energy … i dont like riding the energy pain coz the headache can last till the next day … i cannot bear pain .. i dont like to ….. when i can raise my body temp a little and heal another which i have recently started and been successful i feel a great wow and that to for a person who is a non believer my boyfriend … he does not rely much on all this but i try and explain in a scientific way as far as possible . i just need to tweak a few ends and practice more .. the feeling of heightened self awareness and auroric light display when ur eyes are shut is just out of this world …. its a great feeling to have my kundalini going

    I had a experience I call kundalini rising. I had been reading alot of edgar cayce back in the days befor computers was facinated by his abilities so I read and meditated and read and meditated for hours a day I did have all the experiences you listed plus one overwhelming energy surge. I was sitting in a chair in yoga position and was meditating on Joy finding it in my self and trying to make it bigger and bigger. then it happened. i got a warm sensation in my groin area it came up my legs and up my insides nothing on the outside at all only inside it came all the way up to the top of my head very warm and wonderful feeling but then it got even better the only way to describe it would be to pretend you have a 55 gallon drum of warm water and sombody just pours it out ontop of your head and it flows down over the surface of your body. Outside. It only last maybe a minute but I can remember it like it was yesterday it was 22 years ago. Never did any yoga meditating on Joy. who knew.

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something which I feel I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely extensive for me. I’m looking ahead to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hold of it!

    Crystal says:

    Wow! Thank you so much for this info. It gives me so much insight on what I have been experiencing lately. Shortly before my grandfather passed a few months ago I was wracked with grief knowing his time was running out. As I cried and prayed, I suddenly felt a tingling and coldness in my scar from a large birthmark on my leg which I feel is a deep wound I brought with me from a previous life. I have felt a vibration there off and on ever since.

    Another symptom that you mentioned above that I have felt particularly in the last four weeks is a strange vibration in my ear canal. My hearing is fine, but when I am absorbing certain types of auditory information, it begins to beat. One morning, I awoke & inside my ear hurt intensely for a few days & kept ringing loudly. I was fearful something was wrong with me, but after reading this I think it is just my body’s way of telling me I am awakening & am on the right track in my quest for knowledge and truth :)

    I have never been big on meditating, but last night I had an urge to try it after reading some similar info about Kundalini Awakening. What happened was amazing! First, I saw flashes of hundreds of symbols that look similar to egyptian hieroglyphics embedded on the back of my eyelids. My eyelids and facial muscles began twitching and I felt energy building up inside my mind. Instead of pushing it into my throat and breathing it out – an exercise I usually do to ready my mind before sleep – I let it build up and then felt it flow upward out the top of my head. Suddenly, I “saw” the energy uncurling in the shape of a cobra and when it had straightened completely, the form turned into a woman’s body with arms extended upward toward heaven. Then it transformed into a rainbow. Lightning shot up and down the length of the rainbow and turned it into stairs that resembled a Mayan or Incan temple. On each step was a cluster of fruit. This felt like a truly phenomenal experience to me, a true “vision” and not a forced thought that I conjured. I feel so much love flowing out of me now, just like the rainbow I saw!

    I have been involved with conscious spirituality since the early 70’s. I’m also a healing practitioner/instructor working with All-That-Is/Source energy and am medical intuitive for years. Last January, I received a Reconnection Healing and didn’t feel much from it other than relaxed. About 2 weeks later, I started to experience spontaneous sexual arousal with some vibrations, and then it was gone. Having been celibate for years, this was unusual for me.

    The day of the Japanese Earthquake and Fukishama, March 11, I started the most intense vibrations from my feet and then through my body, causing excruciating continual orgasms, no sleep, head squeezing & vibrations, muscle spasms in my feet…I felt like I was plugged into an electrical socket and a lawnmower 24/7 (and it’s still happening now…9 months later). I continued to have memory after memory of severe childhood abuse which I had been processing for 24 years anyways…just way more intense. I didn’t even know what was happening and never thought that I would ever have to go through a Kundalini rising since I had been very diligent in doing inner work and meditation.

    Because I have many healer friends, I was and am given support but it doesn’t help much with the continual symptoms. I see naturopaths, and many different energy and body workers to help me through this.

    I had some slight reprieve after 3 months only for it to shot up after receiving two remote healings from some International healers…one making me so sick that I passed out over the bathtub. Thank God the shower curtains caught me or I would have had a concussion. I sometimes can’t feel my feet or hands in being so numb from the vibrations.

    The vibrations hardly stop now that we are closer to the December eclipses, Pluto transit and 2012 energy. I cry and scream often because I feel like I have PTSD again and sleep deprivation. I work with clients w/ total focus and then continue to vibrate. I pray each day that I don’t go into spontaneous orgasms which are not what I consider pleasurable and end up with almost bladder infections because of the intensity. And I continue to process memory after memory while changing associated beliefs. This expedites the process and sometimes gives me relief.

    The only good points are that I never considered going to a mental hospital. I really know how to help myself. I never use or would take drugs. I will feel my way out of this if my body doesn’t give first. I’m so sensitive that my psychic abilities have increased tremendously and some of my special childhood abilities are returning. A few of the Laws of the Universe, specifically the ones I’m most attuned to, follow and speak to me often which actually intensifies things…good channeling material though. I can see their essences along with different other spiritual beings and elementals.

    And in all honesty, I wouldn’t wish this experience on anyone…sorry…this is not ecstasy or in anyway enjoyable to me. I haven’t been able to be very social or teach workshops for 3 months, unable to plan much because of overwhelm. I read what some of you say, and it’s just not my experience. I understand why I am going through this, but it doesn’t make it easier. And so I clear and clear until these earth and universal energies find some balance in me.

      Gosh I related to your post somewhat. I had also worked on myself for years after the birth of my daughter and son when I started getting panic attacks and depression. Things improved for me somewhat although I’d always suffered sleep deprivation. After 25 years of working on myself I did pranayama with a yoga course I was doing 5 years ago. Suddenly pressure grew within me and more stuff strayed to surface that I couldn’t really understand except part of me knew it was birth trauma. Anyway after three years or day after intense cycling I came home and had an immense panic attack…my heart was racing and irregular…energy was coming up through me non stop it was horrendous. Since then I’ve been experiencing non stop vibrational churning and tremendous back pain, neck pain, as it works it’s way through my system. I believe it’s my birth trauma surfacing as the head pressure can be unbelievable. I don’t relate to anything being nice about this process…it’s so hard sometimes I wonder how I go on. When my process started years ago I used to have oneness with the universe on occasion and sometimes now I get pleasant energy surfacing,l,but mostly churning vibrating sensations of stuff been opened up and cleared o stop. It’s very exhausting. Thanks for sharing as it’s good to hear others who are struggling.

    my own experience with kundalini awakening on a first noticable level was i was lieing down on my bed when suddenly i felt a huge surge of what i can only describe as a electric volt of energy it rushed in through my feet and up through the whole of my body, i had no control over this and stopping this from furthering, as was dragged along with this energy, as the energy continued till it came out the top of my crown i was then catapulted out of my body and was in the middle of what looked like a war zone, i cnt specifically say how long i was out but it felt that i consumed a certain amount of information with this happening, other things i have experienced from my body vibrating, water like trickling down my spine, headaches and severe neck pain (hospitalized for 16days) with no sign of anythink wrong with me on tests and multiple scans, itching, tremendous amounts of energy passing through my body, preasure in the third eye and crown chakras, spontanious o,b,e and increasing messages from spirit ppl on higher vibrations, angels etc……im a spiritual person and do have knowledge now but at the beginning i didnt know what was happening to me, this is just a preportion of what i have had experience over this last 8yrs, i have had spiritual happenings to me since childhood but put them down to experience… i now know why as i continue my path spiritually and physically…. nothink suprises me, i would say always be prepared for the unexpected………….. xxxkerixxx

    I was taking a reiki class. During the part of the class where the instructor prays over you (or something) and blows on your head (crown chakra?)–I had an experience of a lifetime. I could see a horizon, like you do when you look at the ocean. It was darkish, like dusk. Suddenly, a blinding white light shot across the horizon and I could hear my own voice from deep inside me saying, “OMG is is so light.” For the rest of the meditation period of this reiki class, I saw violet colored geometry. I also saw, as if I were a bird–with one eye, flying through the clouds–with the clouds going by very quickly. I have not had an experience as heavy as this again, but I have had many other experiences.

    I’ve had a few experiences and always assumed they were untrained Kundalini due to the gradual rising and subsequent explosion of pleasure/ecstacy that overcomes me. I have to add that, I’m not referring to a sexual experience although the rising energy does pass through the sexual organs and the explosion I allude to is a cascading flood of that ecstacy surging round my body and not a delicate euphamism for ejaculation.
    I haven’t had any for a while as I felt that I had left myself open due to the untrained nature of my experiences and actively sought to shut myself down to avoid the risk of drainage or intrusion.
    The first was during a brief Chakrah cleansing exercise I was reading in a book, (the only one I’ve seen that included two diagonally located chakras between the ears and the third eye, thus making 9 rather than the typical 7 chakras) .
    The second shortly after was in bed next to my sleeping partner (and is perhaps the most far fetched, but true nonetheless), without any intent, more just an awareness of the birth of the energy and then nurturing it upwards until an admission of true love caused it to explode. At this point I thought I saw a small alien head hovering above my curtains (the typical grey alien in popular media) and the fear of it caused the sensation to cease almost instantaneously The next was a little weird; it was while practising guitar scales, I began to feel uncomfortable or restless in my feet/calves (apologies but then my penis as well) and, as I persevered with the scales through discomfort the explosion resulted.
    I’ve had a couple of others but the details allude me.
    An attempt to meditate in the GObi Desert (a highly charged dry static area of the desert, resulted in sensations described on this board earlier, an uncomfortable buzzing all over body vibration similar to the violent tingling felt in the lips upon a venomous bite with an accelerated heart rate.

    I’ve never been able to explain these sensations and events as I have never practised Kundalini Yoga or any other yoga regularly, nor am I a very disciplined meditator. I tend to dip in and out of it and my experiences- apart from the first – have never been through an intentional meditation.
    I was hoping to have some sort of answer or possible explanation if anyone has one.
