The kundalini, like any stimulative energy, will bring up suppressed material and you have to be willing to let go of that material and any desires (material attachments) you used to repress it. For this situation, it may be better to integrate this material before you awaken the kundalini (see Awakening Mind 2). If you are a user of Light and Sound Sessions, you should know that you can not use another light and sound session without running the risk of shutting down the kundalini. This is an easy thing to do, but any technology that can aid in enlightenment can remove enlightenment! Many people wonder if you can have sex after a kundalini awakening. There have been enlightened people in India who were either a husband or wife and yet had sex. My understanding is that it
hinders the rising of the kundalini. I think the only way sex would stop the kundalini is if you really lost yourself in the climax.
You will also shut the kundalini down if at some point you decide you don’t want to go through it any more and refuse to cooperate with it. Your will is supreme . . at least in the short run. If you decide against even a force as strong as the kundalini, you will shut it down. I have described the effects of the kundalini, if there are some of those effects you don’t want, then don’t even think of awakening this force. I have described the effects of a spiritual fall, if you don’t want to risk those effects, then don’t even think about awakening the kundalini. Pass it by and go on with your life. On the other hand, if you are looking for something deeply rewarding, something enlivening, and something that causes spiritual and mental evolution, awakening and enlightenment, then the
kundalini experience is for you. These are the risks that have been run by disciples of the kundalini through the ages. Technology has changed all of that. The good news is that many if not all of the effects of a spiritual fall are reversible with the help of light and sound sessions if caught in time. Preexisting psychological conditions aggravated by a fall are not reversible without further integrative work. No one need ever go through what I have described above. I have included full instructions on how to awaken the kundalini and how to stop a spiritual fall in the Awakening Mind 1 manual.
Awakening the Kundalini
Although this method is not the only way to do it, the following method is the one with which I am most familiar. In general, to awaken the kundalini naturally, two things are necessary. You must be able to enter a deep meditative trance state and when you do, you must have enough residual energy so that the kundalini will naturally awaken. This is accomplished using the following methods. The first part of this process is to enter a deep meditative trance state. While lying down, take slow deep breaths through your nose. You don’t want to become over stimulated while doing this, so don’t breath too fast. While you are doing this gently concentrate on your breathing. If your mind wanders and you stop deep breathing, don’t let it bother you, just resume again. Eventually, you
will slip into a trance state. It is not likely that you will raise the kundalini while lying down. However, this practice is extremely important in learning how to enter the trance state. The trance state always feels like less time has elapsed than actually has elapsed. However, there are varying degrees of depth to the trance state. Occasionally, you will be aware while in trance. During this experience, time feels like it has been suspended. Sometimes, you will not be aware while in trance; at these times, you will experience a sort of missing time. Once you have mastered the trance state while lying down, you are ready to go to practicing it while sitting up with your back as straight as you can. While practicing the following techniques don’t strain and perform them in a quiet, secluded place. If necessary take your phone off the hook and put the kids to bed.
I suggest you start by practicing a yoga breathing technique called “alternate nostril breathing.” Alternate nostril breathing calms the mind and energizes the third eye chakra. Alternate nostril breathing is performed in the following manner. Rest the base of the palm of your right hand on your chin and your three middle fingers on your forehead; if necessary rest your elbow on a table. Gently press closed your left nostril with your little finger and breath in through your right nostril. Now, close your right nostril with your thumb, and slowly breath out through your left nostril. Next, breath in through your left nostril, while your thumb holds the right nostril closed. Finally, breath out through you right nostril while your left nostril is held closed by your little finger. Repeat the process over and over until your mind clears of thoughts and is relaxed. Once your mind is quiet and relaxed rest your hands on your lap or a table and start slow deep breathing through your nose. Eventually, you will slip into a meditative trance state. If you have enough residual energy from the breathing exercises, your third eye or crown chakra will awaken, you will see brilliant flashes of light in your mind, be brought instantly out of trance state, and feel alot of bliss. While practicing any of the above exercises, you should feel no strain at all. Sit against the side of your bed or in a chair to relax you back if you need to. Don’t force yourself to breath in or out rapidly. If any of your muscles feel tense, consciously try to relax them. If your mind is restless keep doing the alternate nostril breathing, but don’t force your mind to be calm. Personally, I much prefer the following artificial method. You have much more control over your mental state and can compensate for a fall, if it should occur. Whether the kundalini will awaken with the natural method is hit or miss. It depends upon how much energy exists within you when you enter trance state, how straight your back is, and how complete a trance state you enter. With the artificial method, you have exact control over your energy state. However, with the artificial method, you must have access to a computer, light and sound machine, or a tape player.
