Life, Dismantled

[Edited to add 3rd video]

What might happen after one’s kundalini rises? We’re not talking about the next day, like a hangover. We’re talking months, maybe years, maybe indefinitely throughout this life. A deep dance with kundalini creates deep, undeniable change – possibly (imo probably) permanently.

Something prompted me to check around YouTube for kundalini-related videos this morning; something I haven’t done in years. I was surprised to find this young woman (I’m guessing mid-20s?) possessing the breadth of awareness she has re: profound spiritual awakening and the typical 1-2 aftershocks of ego loss and a dark night of the soul. She obviously knows of what she speaks first hand. Continue reading

The Primary Aim of Your Life

I almost took a pass on this video (below) but glad I didn’t, because this man’s message spoke to me. (It also got me writing a lot more here than I had anticipated when I sat down!)

As you may know

A good chunk of my professional life revolved around writing, editing, publishing, and producing media & events that inspire. I grew up pretty much inhaling the classics that encouraged us to, basically, “believe and achieve” . . . and as the joke goes, I evolved from a user to a pusher of this genre that has exploded in myriad directions over the years.

As time went on, my inherent mystical nature expanded greatly and eventually my kundalini woke up and roared. I surrendered to this experience as opposed to seeking a way out of it, ie medical “help,” which of course would involve drugs and diagnoses that would never approximate the truth of what I was experiencing. I felt that kundalini had stepped in to take care of some major business on a soul level, and I was not going to sabotage it. Continue reading

Kundalini Awakening from an African Perspective

Here’s an illuminating POV re: the various elements that may be involved with awakened kundalini from the Ngoma African tradition, which is new to me. I respect the author’s degree of experience, level of awareness, and cultural lens.

The ‘spirit mentors’ with whom I consulted during my peak activation years told me my kundalini was addressing all manner of issues passed down through the physical and energetic DNA of my biological lineage as well as my personal incarnational experiences… something referred to here as being “bothered by the ancestors”!  W


By Gogo Thule Ngane

If you are a part of any spiritual community or circle these days you may have come across the concepts of “waking up” spiritually and kundalini symptoms, as well as the concept that the vibration or consciousness on the planet is rising and many shifts are happening.

Kundalini energy naturally dwells within us all. We came into this world with a mission or destiny of sorts. Very few of us are raised in environments or cultural contexts that are fully aware of this and thus, raise children to adapt to their environment, as opposed to seeing who this child came into the world to be and help to grow that soul purpose out of the child at a young age. Thus “spontaneous” or a divine series of events begin to peel the layers of our conditioning to bring forth who we truly are and have come into this world to be. Continue reading

Kundalini, Ego Loss, Detachment & Aloneness

Posting another kundalini video conversation with Brooke Robertson. Her blurb follows:

As we move from our old identity many things will be stripped away from us that defined us in that old identity. It may be that the attachments strip away, or the actual forms, or both.

But in this stripping away we can feel so lost and so empty – lost at sea with nothing that excites or drives us anymore – are you coming into the reality of yourself? When I speak of aloneness I am not talking about isolation or detachment in those ways. I am talking about not using anything to make it better for you.

It’s between you and your Kundalini. That’s all that’s left. Continue reading

Agonies & Ecstasies

Surrendering to the Unknown

When kundalini is active, the body may go through… well… various agonies. Yes, ecstasies as well, but the going can get pretty rough and even downright frightening when one’s body is manifesting an often overwhelming variety of difficulties due to something as mysterious and in total command as kundalini.

Trickling K is one thing; full-throttle K on a deep, aggressive roto-rooting mission can be something else altogether.

We’d do well to remember that what we think of as these bodies are really complex, interwoven layers of energetic frequencies flowing and interacting with living biology down to the cellular level. When kundalini takes over the wheel of the vehicle, all of these nested and entangled layers may experience K’s power in ways previously unimaginable.

For instance, as Brooke Robertson shares in this 11-minute video, I too went through many, many episodes of what felt like heart attacks. This literally went on regularly for at least 12 years – maybe more – finally subsiding just about a year ago. This typically happened while at rest… often waking me up in the middle of the night in full-blown, breathless, perspiring agony.  Continue reading

Inside the Kundalini Experience

I’m on a bit of a Penny Kelly bender here currently… this video is a deep-dive into her experiences with highly activated kundalini. Because my kundalini awakening is what inspired this blog, and I know at least some readers are in (or have been in) the throes of active K (or know people who are experiencing high strangeness), I thought this video would be of interest/insight re: the kundalini phenomenon.

One thing I really appreciate about this woman is the fact that she discusses this topic without all the lingo and overtones of Eastern traditions, which can be alienating to westerners.

She was raised on a farm in America’s midwest, in a huge family that (to my perception) were virtually a village unto themselves, in constant contact and helping with extended-family farm chores if relatives were sick or aging.

Penny grew up in a situation that uniquely prepared her for her life as a woman who knows how to take care of land, work with elementals, grow most of the family’s food, and be the community visionary/mediator. She has also converted a large barn into a “center” at which she teaches others to access and work with higher awareness – and all that involves re: the physical world. Continue reading

Prophecies from Little Robed Men

Robes - A Book of Coming Changes
I’ve mentioned Penny Kelly here a few times over the years. Her wonderful book, The Evolving Human, is a hair-raising, well-written account of her outrageous kundalini awakening when she was an aspiring engineer in one of Detroit’s major automotive companies.

 

Actually Penny’s entire life has been one amazing episode after another (be sure to visit her catalog of books to get a sense of the breadth of her unique learnings & teachings), but this post is to introduce you to her experiences with a group of visitors who repeatedly appeared in her house bearing prophecies (or warnings) about the future.  Continue reading

Kundalini & Spiritual Emergency

“It’s important that we understand the complexity that accompanies the spiritual emergence process so we can recognize, support, and facilitate it, rather than pathologizing it, drugging it, or resisting it.”

Thanks to Tom Valovic for bringing the following article by Lissa Rankin, MD, to my attention. It takes me back to my first “flirtation” with kundalini, which was [edit] in the early 90’s. I’d read books by Stan and Christina Grof (featured below) that brought my awareness to the existence of this mystical, mysterious power before my own awakening – thank goddess.

Christina had had a full-blown kundalini awakening during childbirth – quite an unexpected initiatory experience for her! – though it was this very experience that “launched a thousand ships” viś a vie kundalini becoming known in the West, starting with Stan Grof’s residency at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. (The history of Esalen is a great story in itself, btw.)

Christina’s book on her experience is The Stormy Search for the Self, which was the first book I’d read on the phenom, and I was so thankful to have this intro info “on board” when K began stirring in me!

Twang:g:g

I can’t say I fully understand what just happened vis-à-vis the eclipse we just experienced the other day, but something really knocked me for a loop!

How are you doing? :-}

(Sidebar: this graphic isn’t a  great match for the post but I got a kick out of it so… voila! If I could edit it, I might change it to creativity/combustion/confusion, or maybe combustion/chaos/creativity! )

(Sidebar #2: video of Lisa Brown’s perspective re: shifting from the old matrix to the New included below.)

So: on August 21st (day of eclipse) we had a big black cloud roll right over the line-of-sight of the “show” the moment the eclipse was starting, and it stayed there the entire time, producing a rain shower for good measure. All around/above this sudden cloud were chemtrails. So my viewing of this event was by way of what I saw online, which, I must say, got totally bizarre. Continue reading

Transfiguration: the Indwelling of Spirit

by Lauren Gorgo

We’ve all been thru some major changes since the last report… changes that have effectively created a level of instability and unpredictability, in some cases those changes may have been life-altering and/or even resulted in our deepest/oldest fears made manifest.

The good news about a fear made manifest is that once we can see, feel and touch it, we can finally and officially move beyond it. For good.

That said, and for those embodying, the next two weeks ahead promise to take those core-level transformations to even greater heights (and deeper depths) as we approach what is being called the “holy fires” and the climax of our rising life force. 🐍

Kundalini is to transmutation what
Holy Spirit is to transfiguration

Kundalini & the Amplification of Senses

Anyone who’s experienced activated kundalini has likely experienced overwhelming sensory amplification. A couple of years ago (maybe more) this woman, Brooke Robertson, came to my awareness when she was a “kundalini newbie”  hanging out with a teacher who goes by the name Chrism.

Now she appears to be on her own posting videos about her experiences from a vantage point of accumulated personal knowing. Perhaps something here for those whose kundalini has risen and is creating confusing sensory overload – a very distracting situation that can affect one sense at a time or numerous senses at once.   Love all… Whitehawk

As an afterthought I’m also including an earlier video of Brooke’s on the topic “Fragmentation/ Dark Night of the Soul.” The influence of “Chrism” is apparent in this second one; they have obviously since parted ways.

Preparing for the Promise

Today I’m feeling moved to call attention to a creative being who packs power in her expression: Alison Nappi.  While combing through graphics for this post, I laid eyes on the one here and instantly felt the fit.

Why?

It spoke to me visually and viscerally about the individual’s frequency encountering the incoming frequency of the cosmos. At first the impact of meeting at this depth (the vesica pisces –aka piscis – in this image) can be intense, discordant, overwhelming, chaotic, even (especially, ultimately) system-shattering.

We are in the vesica pisces of a deep meeting NOW – the deepest encounter demanding the deepest integration by us that we may ever know in this life, and perhaps most others, as well.

This is our entré into energies of searing divine creativity with which we must become allies – even lovers in a sense – to proceed to manifest the luminous life I believe anyone who reads this blog is here to achieve:

Luminousity as an individual soul fully, unabashedly, deLightFully integrated within the collective One.

Think: infinite, exponential cosmic kundalini taking over the vehicle.

No more disenfranchisement or sense of being a once-free soul trapped in a contaminated petri dish.

Bless your participation in this blossoming NOW. Bless your experience of it, in it, and with it. Bless us, every one.

Big Love to you, Whitehawk

Difficulties & Complications with Kundalini Integration

vision-of-the-woman-clothed-in-the-sunThis video comes from a man associated with The Emerging Science Foundation who shares something of his own kundalini experiences – specifically, what he’s been dealing with post-awakening. He found that not much support is available for those who have been through the initial stages and have residual complications. He’s three years out from his K experience at this point. Perhaps what he shares will speak to some readers who’ve experienced kundalini. It is anything but a one-size-fits-all series of experiences.  ~W Continue reading
