Title: have i unleashed the kundalini energy
Post by: Theeongoingspirt on February 25, 2013, 17:29:14
im not sure if i have not but a while back i had been working with differnt energys with my chakras, for some while now i can feel at the bottom of my spine strong energy and it seems to raise  through my chakras giving me a sense of eurphric love through out my body when it rises to the base of my throat.
i have also been told that kundalini is the rise of the surpent which connects you to the divine.
 Many thanks theeongoingspirt

I have had a similar experience. It is the kundalini energy. It will activate when it gets to your head. 
What kind of energy work did you use to get to this point?

Speaking from experience these kundalini symptoms are more than accurate. If you've activated your kundalini you will more than likely experience a multitude of these symptoms. You will surely have experienced a various number of these symptoms before you even knew your kundalini was activated.

From my experience if you activated your kundalini and felt it rise you wouldn't be on a forum asking people if that was kundalini, you wouldn't need to ask anyone anywhere. But like I said scroll through the symptoms and see if any apply to you. The ones that are starred with an asterisk are ones that I have experienced myself.

The following are common manifestations of the risen Kundalini:

*Muscle twitches, cramps or spasms.
*Energy rushes or immense electricity circulating the body
*Itching, vibrating, prickling, tingling, stinging or crawling sensations
Intense heat or cold
*Involuntary bodily movements (occur more often during meditation, rest or sleep): jerking, tremors, shaking; feeling an inner force pushing one into postures or moving one's body in unusual ways.  (May be misdiagnosed as epilepsy, restless legs syndrome (RLS), or PLMD.)
*Alterations in eating and sleeping patterns
Episodes of extreme hyperactivity or, conversely, overwhelming fatigue (some CFS victims are experiencing Kundalini awakening)
Intensified or diminished sexual desires
*Headaches, pressures within the skull
*Racing heartbeat, pains in the chest
*Digestive system problems
*Numbness or pain in the limbs (particularly the left foot and leg)
*Pains and blockages anywhere; often in the back and neck (Many cases of FMS are Kundalini-related.)
Emotional outbursts; rapid mood shifts; seemingly unprovoked or excessive episodes of grief, fear, rage, depression
Spontaneous vocalizations (including laughing and weeping) -- are as unintentional and uncontrollable as hiccoughs
***Hearing an *inner sound or sounds, classically described as a flute, drum, *waterfall, birds singing, bees buzzing but which may also sound like *roaring, *whooshing, or *thunderous noises or like *ringing in the ears.***
Mental confusion; difficulty concentrating
Altered states of consciousness: heightened awareness; spontaneous trance states; mystical experiences (if the individual's prior belief system is too threatened by these, they can lead to bouts of psychosis or self-grandiosity)
*Heat, strange activity, and/or blissful sensations in the head, particularly in the crown area.
Ecstasy, bliss and intervals of tremendous joy, love, peace and compassion
Psychic experiences: extrasensory perception; out-of-body experiences; pastlife memories; astral travel; direct awareness of auras and chakras; contact with spirit guides through inner voices, dreams or visions; healing powers
Increased creativity: new interests in self-expression and spiritual communication through music, art, poetry, etc.
Intensified understanding and sensitivity: insight into one's own essence; deeper understanding of spiritual truths; exquisite awareness of one's environment (including "vibes" from others)
Enlightenment experiences: direct Knowing of a more expansive reality; transcendent awareness

I only starred the ones that I've experienced that directly deal with sensual phenomena definitely caused by activation of the kundalini.

From my knowledge and experience I think it's possible to arouse and feel diverse effects of kundalini without activating it. It awakens, you experience its effects, and then it goes back to being dormant. Maybe this is what happened to you. For example, kundalini plays a big role in the female birth process. After the child is born, the mother's kundalini goes back into its dormant state. However, when you activate your kundalini it never goes back into a dormant state. It's forever awakened. You may not always feel it during the day, but as soon as you think of it or sit or lay down, boom there it is. Also, it is my belief (and I have read) that once activated, and it passes the heart, it never goes below the heart chakra again. I've had experiences that seem to confirm this.

If I were you I wouldn't be too hung up on activating my kundalini. It certainly can assist in your spiritual progression but it is not needed for enlightenment. If I would've known what I was going to be in for prior to activating my kundalini I may not have done it. And once activated you have to live with it for the rest of your life, it cannot be deactivated. There have been times where I legitimately thought I was going to die, no lie. I'm talking about being on the edge of a heart attack. If I was in my 50's, or had a weaker heart, I'm sure I would've died. I've had to completely revamp my lifestyle. That means my life has changed even down to the way I sleep and eat. I can't take any kind of drugs whatsoever, so I don't know wtf I would do if I came across a terrible illness that required me to take medication :|. There are so many other things, but all in all it's been a great experience and I truly do love it. I'm just not sure if I would've done it again had I known better..

@ 2fly4thesky

Is it not possible to control the Kundalini after being activated? I wish to activate it as well, already had many of the symptoms you posted.
The reason being- that I will be more open to receiving and remembering information,which I need for my job.

I have read many accounts of people activating the Kundalini and they all have had different experiences, some good, some bad etc, so I thought the only way to find out is to try it myself, as the experience differs from person to person.

I wanted to ask you if you can please share your experience of the Kundalini activation? or send me a PM.
 I would be very grateful.
Thank you.

Wow, according to that list of symptoms, the "kundalini rising" can account for every sensation known to man.  :?

I'm not gunna argue with you there. I'll tell you a little bit of my story so you can understand better and cus it's kind of interesting.

Shortly after I came across the spiritual path I found, and did, a certain meditation that's specifically designed for activating your kundalini. I did it once and completely forgot about it. And then when I first started experiencing these symptoms I just thought they were regular sensations. You know muscle spasms here and there. And then I began to experience spontaneous sleep paralysis and internal vibrations, things which I had never experienced before. Research led me to find sleep paralysis isn't uncommon, but it got me thinking something's up. Didn't know exactly what but something was up. I thought maybe they were happening because of my newfound interest in spiritually related topics, and because of the visualizations I was doing at the time (simple things like imagining myself in white light and the light expanding). You know, I'm reading about these higher dimensions so maybe my mind is connecting with them in a way. At least that's what I thought at the time. Didn't even chalk it up to be because of the kundalini meditation I did that one time because like I said I completely forgot about it! Or I think it would be better to say that I neglected the fact that I did it.

A few days or maybe weeks later I was in my car with my friend in the parking lot when I began hearing this faint whoosh sound. It sounded like a gentle stream. As I took notice to it, it got louder, so I turned music on to drown it out. Then it got louder and louder to the point where it began to drown out my music and sounded like I was standing in a waterfall or even like I was standing on shore when a huge tidal wave just came crashing down sweeping the city away. It was ridiculously loud. I looked at my friend startled but he seemed not to notice anything out of the ordinary. I turned the music down and looked at him trying to remain calm because I realized by his lack of expression that he may not be hearing this sound. With my hand on the knob I said, "do you hear something?" He said no. lol No?! That shizz was so loud! Anyways, I never mentioned it to him or brought it up; but that's when I definitely knew something was up, very much out of the ordinary. You must understand I never had any supernatural, weird, involuntary, gifted, anything ever happen to me before I began studying spirituality. By the time I got out of the car I felt like I was in an altered state of consciousness and I still heard the whooshing but it was lower now. I didn't want to drive because I didn't know how my state of mind would effect my driving and motor skills but as I walked around I seemed fine. I went in my friends house and sat for a bit to straighten myself out before I drove home and eventually the sound went away and I felt normal and drove home.

Eventually, I stumbled upon Journeys Out of Body and Monroe spoke of internal vibrations and sleep paralysis so I was like okay I'm not crazy and I'm not making this up. The huge, rushing sound however was still an odd mystery. It happened several times after that first time and one time was even accompanied by a sound of electricity. When I heard the electricity I heard it outside of my body but I just knew it was an internal sound. It seemed to come from within my head. Each time I heard the rushing sound I felt as if I was going to be sucked up or shot out of my body (this was before I knew about monroe, out of body experiences or astral projection) but that's how I felt and I always fought it because 1) I was in my car and 2) I didn't know what was going to happen. When I look back at it I kind of wish I would've surrendered to the experience.

A little bit after that I would experience this uh.. pleasant sensation in my brain. It's hard to describe. It sort of feels like light is magnifying/massaging certain parts of my brain, maybe altering it, producing a blissful sensation. It would start directly at the top of my head and spread and seep into certain parts of my brain. Then one day I had a normal headache like I should've cus I didn't eat much that day or something. The headache sucked and I couldn't eat at the time because I was out and didn't have money so I laid down and somehow I got the idea to 'play' with the pain. I focused on my headache and tried to move it around. I began to feel that oh so pleasurable sensation and was able to move it around to different parts of my brain. The more I played with it it eventually shifted to the middle of my forehead (my 'third eye') and the pleasurable feeling began to pulsate there. That sensation is one of the most amazing, pleasurable feelings I've ever had. That and flying while projecting/lucid... are better than drugs, sex, and roller coasters... in my book. Haven't had any spiritual or nonphysically energetic experiences involving sex or nonphysical sex etc. so who knows maybe that can one day come back and take the lead in the near future  :lol: .

Fast forward 2 years and while doing a certain energy work I started feeling.. well.. I don't know... faint?... like light headed... but throughout my body as well?... and the non-physical energy surrounding the lower half of my body was pulsating... I laid down (as to not.. faint?..). The non-physical energy surrounding the lower half of my body pulsated to a certain point and then the non-physical energy surrounding the upper half of my body pulsated to a certain point and then they sort of.. synced. That's when something began to move up my spine. It frightened the sh** out of me to say the least. It felt like a ball of energetic pressure that situated within and around my spine slithering up from the bottom of my spine. It moved from what is known as the base chakra to the naval chakra. It feels very physical. This is when I put 2+2 together and knew I had activated my kundalini. That the meditation I had done 2 years prior had worked and all the spontaneous sensations I had experienced were because of this.

The next day I did this energy thing again and it moved from the base to the naval then from the naval to the solar plexus. The next day I did this again because it was something that I did everyday, and that's when all hell broke loose. It simply would not or could not situate at my heart chakra :|. I would feel a HUGE rush/intake of energy from my feet to my head. Unlike anything I've ever felt before. (The rushing I used to hear always seemed as if it was from outside of me, even though I knew it was an internal sound, and I never felt any energy. With this I didn't hear anything I simply felt the energy rising through me.) It was like a 500% increase of my normal energy flow. When the kundalini would begin to rise my heart would beat faster and faster and faster like it was about to explode and then there was this sensation that I liken to when a desktop computer is on and you hold the power button and it goes "eeeeuuurrrrrnn" (lol) and turns a system shut down. Then it would go back down to my root chakra. From there I would have heart palpitations. I would feel pain in my left arm, it would get heavy and hurt. My heartbeat was irregular until I could no longer feel my heart beating nor could I feel my pulse. Then I would feel lightheaded and dreary... as if I was about to faint.. like I was losing consciousness and slipping away. (It was similar to how I felt before I had my first conscious exit OBE a few months later that I wrote about in a prior post... but that time I felt faint.. this time I felt like I was about to faint) I had to fight it because I didn't know if I was dying or what (and it felt kind of dangerous unlike when I had my first conscious exit OBE, that 'lightheaded' sensation felt more natural and safe. I say lightheaded but it's not really lightheaded.. it's not like when you smoke a cigarette.. but that's the best way I can describe the feeling, it's a distinct feeling I've felt a couple times.. like.. I feel faint). Anyways, after awhile this whole process would start all over again.. over and over again exactly as described.. and this would go on allllllll night. Literally from like 11-7. IT SUCKED to say the least.

So the next night I was like maybe this won't happen every time I do this energy work and again it happened, and again it sucked. A week later I thought well maybe if I just do a little bit of energy work and not nearly as much it won't happen. It happened again and this time it was the worst. I contemplated calling the hospital a number of times. I made peace with death. I told my roommate to check up on me when he leaves to go to work in the morning to see if I was still alive. The process was going on over and over, it was horrible and I had to put an end to it. When the kundalini would rise to my heart I would feel this huge rush of very, very fine energy enter my left palm and travel through my hand. Then I remembered from Bruce Moen's book that when he first went to TMI he was experiencing all this energy and he went outside and rolled in the grass and felt better afterwards. So I got the idea that maybe if I could ground the energy it would stop the process from starting over again. So I got up went in the backyard barefoot and stood in the dirt.. Nothing happened  :-( ... Well, I definitely wasn't about to roll around in the grass! It was very early like 6 or 7 AM and no one was outside but still.. Anyways, we have these huge trees in front of our house so I walked out there, put my left hand on one of the trees and leaned on it.. so if you walked outside and saw me leaning on the tree you would probably think I was on the phone or something. So then I visualized energy from the tree entering my left palm and sort of.. I don't know what to call it.. "-willed- it happening" and I began to feel the energy of the tree enter my hand. It was very heavy and coarse as opposed to the light and finer energy already entering my hand, and I don't know if I would say of lower vibration than the vibration already entering my hand because of the kundalini being at my heart but it definitely was not as fine. The energy from the tree kind of stopped where my elbow was and was acting as a sort of.. I don't know if this is the technical term but.. diode? The finer energy would try to enter my palm but it's like it was blocked. I thanked the tree, mother nature, and Bruce Moen. The energy was held at bay, the process stopped, and I was able to go to sleep.

After that I had to completely change so many things about my life. I had to change my diet at that time because my heart, body, and blood pressure was unstable for awhile. My body now also naturally detoxes itself. After decades of sleeping on my stomach I had to sleep on my back. If I laid on my stomach I immediately got muscle spasms, felt pain, or got headaches. And my headaches aren't the same anymore they are now pressures in my head from a build up of energy that I now relate to kundalini. I can kind of lay on my stomach now :-D but can't sleep on it. Sometimes when I sleep on my back there becomes a build up of pressure that feels like it's about to explode out of my back. It's a sharp pain that hurts really bad but a tempurpedic contour pillow fixes the problem. Thank GOD I had a contour pillow it was a lifesaver and I used it all while going through that heart chakra problem, don't know what I would've done without it, probably be dead. I mean there's so much I had to go through because of kundalini. I can't even eat too much candy or I'll get a headache! (too much candy is like half a box of sour patches or 2 hershey bars). If I drink a little bit of alcohol or smoke too much tobacco I get internal vibrations that I gotta deal with damn near allll night before I can finally drift off to sleep. It's very annoying. It feels like my vibration was lowered because of the substance and the vibration is caused by my body raising back to its normal state. Don't know if that's the case but that's what it feels like. And taking drugs, forget about it! If I get some kind of illness that demands I take medicine I don't know what the hell I'd do :| . But overall I've learned to live with it and it's helped me straighten out my life and has taught me valuable lessons. The only dangers are forcing it up. Forcing it up through your heart chakra can get you a heart attack and by forcing it through the ajna chakra you can get a stroke. I just let it do its thing, live natural, and have everything happen naturally.

But the point I was trying to make is that once kundalini activates and rises you know it's kundalini. There's no if's and's or butt's. There is a non-physical/physical energetic pressure moving along my spine everyday. Going up and down from my base to sacral chakra. Sometimes it feels like one big ball of pressure, sometimes it feels like many points of pressure that form a ball, sometimes it's a tingling, sometimes it's a slither, sometimes it's at my root and sacral chakra at the same time, sometimes it's a sharp pain. Basically there are symptoms in the list you can experience without activating kundalini (obviously) but there are also experiences you have when it's activated that don't just happen. That internal rushing sound, blissful sensations seeping into the depths of your brain, foreign energy moving up and down the spine.. these things don't just happen. Especially in the middle of the day during waking hours without meditating, trying to go out of body, or nothing of the sort. You don't have to believe or accept that this energy or phenomenon is real, but if it ever happened to you then when it happened you would know without a doubt.

Only you know what is true for you but you just wrote all the sensations I have felt during a panic attack. Except for the spine thing.

I will have to read some more on this since I know many people who say that have experienced both and all agree they are not the same.

@ MaryBell

Is it possible to control it? I don't know. Maybe if you had the ability to manipulate the matter and energy of the universe you would be able to control kundalini? I know my conscious awareness affects it to a certain extent... But I don't try to control it. I try to cooperate with it and let it do its thing. It's like it has a mind of its own. Once activated and has risen through a few chakras, you don't have to do anything for it to move about through those chakras, it just does it itself.

Personally, I don't think it will help you be more open to receive and remember information. At least not until it is permanently beyond the third chakra. If activating your kundalini will make you believe that you can now be more open to receive and remember information then that's a different story. But anything you can do with an activated kundalini, you can do without activating your kundalini. So why not find more practical ways to receive and remember information? For instance, why not explore Frank Kepple's FoC2. That is where each individual stores all their memories and information they receive. By establishing a more direct and conscious connection/communication with FoC2 you may be able to remember things better/quicker/easier.

Kundalini doesn't give you magical powers. At least not until it permanently moves beyond the heart chakra we may be able to do things that may seem magical. And it is my theory that in order to permanently move kundalini up to and beyond the heart chakra you must greatly purify your physical, emotional, and mental bodies/energies.

I look at kundalini as an impersonal, technical, purification process. It helps uncover physical, physiological, and psychological imbalances within your personality and energy system, and it is up to you to notice them and resolve them. All the while it continues to purify your physical body, etheric body and energy field as much as possible.

Kundalini is a natural part of life and if we as human beings were born at, and remained at, our most pristine, pure, and optimum state we would all be born and live with fully activated kundalini constantly flowing up through the crown chakra. I can explain more about it but I think I'd be heading over into philosophy and I'm only on this website to talk about practical things dealing with the out of body/projection/phasing experience. I just commented on this thread because I have an intimate and personal relationship with kundalini so I can share my experiences. But kundalini is life energy and I'm not going to sit here and try to explain what life is and how we receive it's energy lol

However, I will say that according to my research activating kundalini is NOT a prerequisite for enlightenment or ascension. By going within, walking your spiritual path, and undertaking the enlightenment process, your kundalini will naturally activate and flow in a healthy, well balanced manner. Remember, once activated it cannot be deactivated until you either physically die or permanently raise the kundalini through the crown chakra and around the body at which point it will flow uninhibited and you will no longer feel it throughout your body even though it is still there activated. It is my belief that in order to permanently raise the kundalini through the crown chakra you must be consciously aware on, and can operate in, all dimensions of this universe.


Kundalini is a natural part of life. As I said above, it is life energy, therefore, everyone has kundalini, if you didn't you wouldn't be alive. If you haven't activated it it is dormant but who's to say how dormant it is. We've all been half-awake haven't we? On the border of sleep and wakefulness. As I stated earlier, it is my belief that you can awaken your kundalini and experience it's diverse effects, especially during traumatic or stressful experiences. But I don't think this is the same as activating your kundalini, in which case it is permanently awakened.

Also, many of these sensations could be caused by the various chakras/energy centres and not by the kundalini itself. Maybe these symptoms are just more prominent with people who have activated their kundalini because of the kundalini's interaction with the various energy centres.

@ 2fly4thesky

Thank you for sharing your experience.
 I was under the impression that activating your kundalini will "free" your dormant psychic powers. Empower you in a way. Regaining the powers that were yours, etc.
I started having these symptoms after I learned to get out of my body.  I thought it was triggered because of this.
By FoC2, do you mean Focus 2? I thought the memories will be stored in what people call the akashic records or the library at Robert Monroe's focus 27. I have tried a few times to get to focus 27 while out of body, but without success. Have you been to Focus 2?
I'm a bit confused on how you get there when you leave your body. I usually find myself in my room, or in a different world, but I dont think thats any of the Focus levels. Simply wishing for it, doesnt seem to work.  What would you suggest?

Title: Re: have i unleashed the kundalini energy
Post by: 2fly4thesky on April 02, 2013, 00:20:52
Kundalini can do this but like we all know it works differently for different people so it cannot be a sure bet. Maybe for you activation of kundalini may open your nonphysical perception when it's at your naval or sacral chakra. This didn't happen for me. I'm sure it definitely allows access to a number of psychic abilities once it reaches the third eye because once activated the kundalini's main task is purification, so once it gets to the third eye it will clear the blockages and open up the perception of your mind's eye. However, I don't think this would be the best way of trying to perceive within. The best way IMO is to just use the phasing model that is described in glorious detail on this beautiful website. Whether my kundalini is activated or not, phasing is the same for me as it is for everyone else. Doesn't happen any quicker or any easier. If there is a kundalini shortcut to the out of body experience I don't know what it is. I'm not really concerned either because phasing is the best option to me. It's practical and it's universal.

By Focus 2 I mean Focus 2 of Frank Kepple's Phasing Model. The experiences/memories of your "Total Self"/"I-There" can be accessed in the Akashic Records of Monroe's Focus 27. This would be Frank Kepple's FoC 3. Because you are a part of your Total Self you can access your memories there as well. However, your personal memories are stored in and can be accessed in FoC 2 of Frank Kepple's Phasing Model where you can relive the experience.

If I were you once out of body in the Astral I would ask for a Helper to guide me to Focus 27. Basically, when you're out of body "in a different world" ask for a Helper to guide you to Focus 27. I don't know if a Helper can help you when you are in your room, so find a way to become conscious of a different world and then try it. I'm sure you're in the Astral when you find yourself in a different world.

Ok, thanks. I will try that.
