Kundalini and the Emotions

 

Guest post by Chrism; thanks to Tom for forwardingImage

Everything is amplified within the Kundalini awakening none more so than the emotional traumas. Inside of our pain and our sorrow there can be confusion and blame and deep, very deep, hurt and injury to our self worth and our self expectations and our understandings of what love is expected to be. We can ask:

“Why? How? Did this happen?” “Why am I here alone?”

Yes I have authentic experience having been allowed to ask these very same questions earlier in my process. Inside of this Kundalini amplification of emotional isolation and pain the answers I give may not be enough to plug the hole you may be experiencing at this time. And they shouldn’t. They are there for your personal process to discover. These rips into your heart are there for the divine exaltation through the release of toxic programming and information – a conduit of release from mundane concepts that cannot co exist with the enlightenment process that comes with the Kundalini awakening.

But keep reading and the reasons will become clear that you must have this. It is a necessary part of the process of Kundalini awakening.

In Case of Spiritual Emergency (Don’t Break Glass!)

If there’s anything that qualifies as a spiritual emergency, kundalini in full torrent would be it. Granted, some people experience kundalini (or what they believe to be kundalini… but more likely to be a far gentler prana movement in the spine) as a delightful gift of spirit. But a full-out kundalini activation – with all its highly powerful and mysterious manifestations – can be a very frightening and life-derailing experience that can go on and on and on.

I remember back in the 80′s a network of psychotherapists specializing in spiritual emergence (ie, an “awakening” that disrupts a person’s life routine to the point of seeking guidance to help integrate it) formed. It was known as “SEN” – the Spiritual Emergence Network of therapists, founded by Stan and Christina Grof.

I was encouraged that a growing number of spiritually-aware psychologists was finally taking strides beyond the old (presumably) science-based model of determining a patient’s mental condition, into a more expansive exploration of prognosis and care. Continue reading

A Fine Fizz It Iz

Some years ago (maybe 8; could be 10) I had a visionary experience in which I was out in some wide-open wilderness area with an elder who wanted to show me something important. She pointed upwards with a sweeping gesture, drawing my attention to the sky being torn open by what appeared to be a swarm of something penetrating the upper atmosphere from somewhere beyond, and streaming toward the land in a focused beeline.

As we stood watching, this swarm zoomed down through a portal that pierced the atmosphere  – then it zinged right into the earth itself.

After a moment of observation, I realized this ‘swarm’ was not insects or birds, but rather, a swarming sea of conscious light units. More specifically, the units were billions of miniscule bubbles of luminescence!

This phenomenon has stayed with me over all this time since witnessing it, and I’ve pondered it frequently. In recent years (via the experiences time has brought me), these ponderings have gelled into a hypothesis of the significance of this “effervescent light.”  I’ll come back to this in a moment.

Fast-forwarding now a few years… to the point in my kundalini ride when I spent an extraordinary night immersed in interwoven fields of complex, living, humming Light (capitalized because it was significant). This experience seemed a finale of sorts (or at least, a plateau) following the years I spent “negotiating” active kundalini. The hours I spent in that Light catapulted me through what I think of as a membrane that holds humanity’s consciousness within a certain frequency range. In other words, I “broke through” into an expanded bandwidth of awareness.

After my breakthrough experience in the Light, I sustained a profound realization of oneness for several weeks. I shared the essence of this one-ness – which I now understand to be the true nature of existence, as opposed to a zillion separate parts or entities – in my “Deep Light” essay published in the book, Kundalini Rising.

So this whole business of Light – specifically living, conscious, effervescent “Light on a mission” (through the cosmos to penetrate and transmute this planet; through our bodies in the form of transformative kundalini; and residing at some frequency which I visited during my all-night OBE that shifted me into “oneness” for an extended time) – has become much more real and significant to me than a rote symbol or metaphor.

This is an absolute and reality-altering phenomenon in my view, here to up-shift the planet (indeed, the universe) a significant octave in cosmic harmonics. This is the photonic energy of ascension, the trigger mechanism here to upgrade us from homo sapiens to homo luminous. It’s graduation day for Gaia and her family!

This Light is the divine transmutative cycle pouring to and through us
now from the galactic center – the wellspring of the Great Central Sun, or God Source.

I sense that the Light is flowing in the form of effervescence because its essence and a significant part of its mission is to expand our reality into new dimensional spaces in the great hologram of existence. These bubbles of Light are somehow opening the fabric of our reality to higher dimensions – the realms we have always thought of as “beyond the veil,” “on the other side,” of a “higher vibration,” and so on. Consider inverting a particle to find what’s inside; might that transform it into a tiny hollow sphere?

In these times of ascension, “there” is merging with “here” in a gradual but ever-quickening synthesis. In the shifting frequencies we are now experiencing, that which has been hidden is now being revealed: the land of the (so-called) dead; the realms of the masters and elementals; the planes and sub-planes that various galactic beings inhabit, etc. … are all becoming accessible to us now. The more sensitive (empathic, intuitive, etc) among us are realizing this first, but it will be apparent to all in the very near future as this photon delivery system affects our world.

The effervescent Light is facilitating the shift ~ it is somehow serving to de-densify our dimension! The frothy Light is O P E N I N G us into higher realms.

I believe one thing the “new energies” will affect is our relationship with/to TIME. I think I know that time as we’ve lived in/with it will be going the way of the buggy whip – soon. The new energies and dimensional openings will make time an obsolete framework that we have needed to contain our dense, 3D world… leading us into a field of continual flow, synchronicity, and inherent awareness beyond the here/now.

We’ve had to employ time as a pegboard for our physical experiences: one here, the next one over there, the last one back there, etc. I am convinced we are currently in transit from Kronos (chronological time) to Kairos (the Flow of the Now; the opportunities opening in the synchronicity of the moment).

Our life lines are becoming life pools or streams, emanating specific energy signals multi-directionally and dimensionally, that spontaneously attract like energies (opportunities, responses) in the Now.

It is all becoming totally about OUR energetic frequencies of NOW: our habits of perception, reception, and response. We receive Light, put our stamp on it, and send it out with honed intention to accomplish things. We are being promoted to 5D Light Beings: awake, aware, responsible members of the galactic energy management ranks.

No longer can we rest on laurels, or perpetuate expectations based on who we (think we) were in the past… it is ALL about the moment and what we cause to flow through it. Our very bodies (or light bodies/energy bodies) are becoming ever more attuned as “portals of creative experience,” rather than living tokens of bio-matter marching around a game board through linear time.

This is the elegance of the higher planes. If impulsed to suddenly go somewhere or do something… it’s highly likely there’s something resonant to you that’s calling you there in that moment. Your “timely” arrival is virtually defacto. We will be tuning in and adapting to this manner of living over the next couple of years; I feel it coming in strongly. The timelessness of internet media and communications underscores this trend and functions as training wheels for this emerging way of being.

Soon we will cease to be trapped in time! (One of numerous incoming freedoms to which we’ll be adapting. )

We’ll be consciously navigating Kairos. The “dimensional opening,” “veil-thinning”
properties of the effervescent Light inherently take us into higher, rarified, kairotic realms of being – the 5th density, and beyond.

2012, Kundalini, and Spontaneous Evolution: Intro

I considered calling this post “Fear of Exposure,” because what I want to discuss may strike some as heretical. I haven’t even included it in the blog’s “About” page (yet), out of concerns re: outing myself on this matter — even though it has evolved, over recent years, into a front-burner theme of my life’s journey. Moreover, I see it as a matter of increasing relevance to a swelling, rising tide of souls who are realizing something big (and highly unusual) is happening, within their own body/mind/spirits as well as in the world at large (because outside and inside are One). And they may have no idea what this phenom is… yet. Perhaps you are one who’s beginning to tune into it, and wondering.  Wondering. Or maybe you’ve been “in it” long enough to have connected some dots and are now seeking community with others on the same wavelength.

So I’m gearing up to tell my story, posting it in bits and pieces, starting here on this blog and — the intention is — to be continued soon on a website dedicated to stories, community, media, resources, and events that explore this theme in depth. My hope is that by stepping up in this way, others may become aware of what might be happening with them, and how it all ties in to a much bigger — galactic, in fact — evolutionary story.  I feel that to a large degree, who I am and what I’m here for involves being of service and support in this very particular form of spiritual emergence and Earthly evolution.

My part of this amazing tale began several years ago, although the epic itself has been scripted for centuries, even millennia. It’s about a quantum leap in the evolution of a planet, and all who live upon it, that is said to be reaching its climax around the year 2012.  As ancient prophecies predict — and as events currently unfolding seem to be verifying — the time of this quantum shift is upon us.  Its mind-bending “delivery system” is a vast intergalactic river of a previously unknown (to us) form of energy that our solar system (indeed, our galaxy) is now encountering, as it wends its spiraling path through the cosmos. This energy seems to be penetrating the sun (whose properties have been changing), then radiating to and through the earth (and the rest of our solar system) to its core, and finally emanating back out to the surface, initiating ripples of changes the likes of which we’ve never seen before.  Not even remotely.

What’s more, when this energy comes in contact with us, our energy bodies (or light bodies) are being “set off” and amped up in ways that profoundly affect us — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. People’s kundalini, an ultra-potent form of life force also known as the energy of transformation, is on the rise in huge numbers; and I believe these numbers are increasing exponentially by the day. And kundalini — if one isn’t already a yogic adept when this begins (as few westerners are) — manifests a daunting, often overwhelming array of symptoms swinging between  luminous/ miraculous revelations one day, to physical and/or emotional agony the next, and a thousand unimaginably weird variations of episodes in between, often over a course of years as kundalini wends its way through a life, burning out lifetimes of karma that has been embedded in every level (physical and energetic) over eons.

You see, the purpose of kundalini is to bring us to a state of clarity, in every sense of the word.  Clarity about who we really are in the soular sense  (as opposed to merely what we see through the personality’s lens, here at “street level”), and clarity also in the physical vehicle we are embodying in this incarnation.  In other words, clear, radiant, love-flowing life and health, personally and transpersonally, clearing all the petty muck that has accumulated on all levels.  Kundalini’s role is to get us there, and the “cleansing” can be formidable, depending on how much one’s entire, wholistic being  has been encumbered by the weight of karmic debris and bondage.  This debris is anything and everything that’s not “of light” (consider every negative thought or feeling, spanning all of one’s incarnations over time, as well as all results of those states in the physical world — and you might begin to grok the scope of kundalini’s “project” of reconciling it all to help one “ascend” to a higher more refined spiritual state). This process, which is integral to this big evolutionary leap I’m talking about, is so vast, so profound… words fail.  Maybe you can appreciate why this is so challenging to even begin to talk about — it’s like trying to create encyclopedias, road maps, user’s guides, and flow charts of infinity itself, including all its infinitessimally particulate parts!

This is a massive, life-altering experience, and in the west a kundalini activation — also known as spiritual emergence (or emergency) — can easily be mistaken for psychoses, hypochondria, and/or myriad mysterious illnesses. I have notebooks full of accounts of my years of negotiating the formidable energies of kundalini, culminating in an unprecedented experience of blissful, buoyant Oneness (or realization of the unity of all) that lasted several weeks. This was a state of consciousness light years beyond anything I’ve ever approximated or imagined as even existing before; literally an immersion experience of heaven on earth.

Then — I plummeted back “here,” to ordinary awareness, which was truly harsh after I’d been living in such an exalted state.  The gift of this experience, I believe, is that I’ve been given a sense of the goal, or destination, or point of what is unfolding now.  I have new perspective.  I’ve had a glimpse, and now believe the purpose of all I’ve been through since the millennium turned is to be able to offer support to others, and also assurance (for myself as well during times of doubt) that there is More Than This, and it’s worth the trials and travails we encounter here to return There, the Source from where we originated in the Beginning.

Still, to take this first step to blog on the subject has been a long time coming, and I can’t help but feel some trepidation. But here I am, beginning. I do hope it serves a few souls who pass this way.  I’ll be very interested to hear from any who relate to this blog.

These energies that are pouring forth via this “gush” from the galactic center, which is now thought to be the “birth canal” through which our solar system was born (and btw — this mysterious galactic river of light, known as the photon belt, has been under observation by NASA for decades), will be triggering kundalini far and wide in individuals who may have never even heard the term before, or even may have had little interest in spirituality in general.  Empathic people are experiencing “activation” long before hardcore empiricists.  They’ll likely feel they are losing control of their lives, as kundalini takes over at the wheel. They’ll find themselves seeing, perceiving, and experiencing life (and themselves) in ways totally alien to anything they’ve known.  They will be frightened — which is to be expected when reality morphs.  This entire event is nothing less than a massive reality shift.

In my view, the more info made available by those of us who have been already through this — or at least a few stages of it — the greater the chances that coming “waves” can find resources that will serve them in this era of the quantum leap — of spontaneous evolution.   This leap is happening not only “out there in the world” in a still predominantly perceived theoretical (or to some, heretical) sense, but IN HERE, in these very “bodies we wear,” while we’re wearing them.  Amazing revelations — great revealings — are percolating up through the cellular depths of our very being.

There is so much to share with you about all of this and more.  It’s tragic that religious dogmas have so alienated humans from the big picture… which in turn keeps us “caged” as little egos to be controlled instead of infinite Souls expressing Infinite Light.  The world cries for the LIGHT.

The rabbit hole goes deep and wends far. This is the first post of a series; more to come.
