O P E N E D

The Illuminated Rumi is an exquisitely beautiful book, and one of my most treasured.

This page (pictured below), these words, and this image in particular were “mine,” as I left my former life in the wake of a profound kundalini awakening – or opening – to areas of consciousness and experience beyond anything previously known.

I actually copied this page and displayed it prominently on my wall. Seeing it again (thank you, Karen Boyden Phelps) makes my heart o p e n  again!

When Spirit Leaps

Sharing this review of Bonnie Greenwell’s latest book, posted by “litebeing” Linda on her blog (linked below). Bonnie Greenwell is one of the pioneering psychotherapists who took on the formidable phenomenon of awakened kundalini – which has been an ongoing (and challenging, and confusing, and defining) experience in my life. Gratitude to Linda.

Bless all, Whitehawk

The Guardian of Morals & Human Evolution

 The following excerpt was taken from one of Gopi Krishna’s writings. Gopi Krishna was an Indian householder of government employ (if memory serves) whose kundalini experience forced him out of the family home into a remote cabin where he could be alone in silence and contemplation for a very long time – years – as he surrendered to kundalini. His experiences were deep and profound in body and soul. His writing, to modern readers, can seem a bit dense to absorb… as might be said of many spiritual classics.

After his long initiation he returned to “life” and wrote copious documentation about his experiences and also his understandings of what kundalini is. He was the first person to come out in television interviews and discuss this phenomenon – if interviewers were up to taking it on! Gopi Krishna’s material is still well worth studying for anyone interested in or experiencing kundalini.

The evolutionary process of active kundalini is spiritual, moral and biological.

Gopi Krishna considered Prana as the key, and foresaw a time when we would understand more about how this intelligent energy works within our human frame. I pray this time is soon to be upon us! So much has to do with turning away from the battlegrounds of life and turning toward love, nurturance, compassion, etc. Kundalini is the Great Mother, the Holy Spirit, the Heart, the integration of spirit & form.

It’s interesting that Nikola Tesla also mentions this future research of Prana briefly in one of his articles. I surmise that prana and plasma are related, and we have plenty to learn about both. ~Whitehawk


The Guardian of Morals and Human Evolution

by Gopi Krishna

Prana, as has been said, is the purifying agent of the body and the mind – the most important agent of the body and the mind. The most important psychological changes in the character of an enlightened person would be that he or she would be compassionate and more detached. There would be less ego, without any tendency toward violence or aggression or falsehood.

The awakened life energy is the mother of morality, because all morality springs from this awakened energy. Since the very beginning, it has been this evolutionary energy that has created the concept of morals in human beings. It is not an expedience of our social structure that is responsible for morality but rather the activity of the life energy, the guardian of our morals. Continue reading

The Future of Money

futuremoney

Sharing an interview between Penny Kelly and Anja Schuetz, who started a youtube channel to discuss matters re: changes and potential changes coming to affect the current financial paradigm. If you’re  interested in the money segment exclusively, Anja has excerpted that portion and provides a separate link to it in her intro copy – numerous topics are touched upon in the full interview.

As you may be aware, Penny Kelly’s kundalini launched big-time nearly 40 years ago when she was a budding GM executive. This radical experience set her on an impressive and expansive journey (not in the auto industry!), and she’s authored numerous illuminating books about her experiences and understandings. I’m always interested to hear her take on a subject – she’s so down home and out-there brilliant at once.

I also feel moved to remind all that timelines are not only malleable, but multitude as well. Whole other discussion; just mentioning that foreseen events are not cast in stone! Prevailing consciousness is powerful and not to be underestimated.

Anja Schuetz’s blurb follows (I was tempted to make a few edits but left it intact), and below that is the video.

By the way, the three videos Anja linked are Penny’s interviews with Regina Meredith, which were posted on this blog when they became available within the last year.  ox:W

Your Connection to Your Holy Mental Self

September 2018

Beloved masters, as you move forward on the path of en-Lighten-ment, and you come to a better understanding of cosmic law and the workings of the universe, we welcome the opportunity to occasionally give you a better understanding of some of the concepts of Creation and the complexity of the physical vessel.

Therefore, we would like to give you an in-depth explanation of the composition of the Etheric Body and its importance in the process of ascension. The Etheric Body or Etheric Web, which is much finer in substance than the earthly body, refers to the invisible counterpart of the physical body.

The Etheric Body is composed of the physical aura, which conveys your physical state of health via various colors and the distortions – or lack thereof – within the Etheric Web patternThe emotions of pain, suffering and resentment are thought forms which are keeping you from embracing and becoming the Bearer of Light you were meant to be.

The Nature of Spiritual Risk

One from Open, via wakeup-world.com.


Understanding the Nature of Risk on the Spiritual Path


by Open

There will come a point on the spiritual path where there’s nothing for it but to risk all. It’s when you hit the edge of ultimate freedom — to begin to walk the blade edge of life.

The soul wants to flow as freedom. It doesn’t calculate what is logical, safe, or will gain the best practical outcome. It is yearning to be forged by the crucible of life into something immortal, beyond fear and limitation. Not that the soul doesn’t have boundaries, not that it doesn’t blend into rigid realities, it does. But it’s purpose is to be the expression of the unbounded, unconstrained, fearlessness of the One. That’s why there will come a point on the path to risk all.

It’s time to break through the glass ceiling.

Risk is the antithesis of security. It’s where you’re presented with a choice and you have no idea what’s on the other side. You don’t know if what you’re being invited to do will work, or where it will lead. Let’s be clear — truly following the soul will take you to the limit of what you feel secure. This is the crux point, which pulls on all the remaining ties of ego.

And that’s exactly why you’ll hit the ‘glass ceiling’ if you’re truly walking the path. You’ll encounter the final restraint that provides shelter and comfort to the ego. To break the glass ceiling, is to dive right into your fear. At this point, ego explodes and full kundalini is activated.

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
