I offer this as support for those out there seeking guidance with their Awakened Kundalini. Spontaneous awakenings or otherwise are often intense, scary, primordial experiences that can last for years, and balance can be very hard to find. But I must always offer the other side of the coin…that what you read here applies to all of us, since we are all having one long Kundalini Awakening called LIFE.
During times of ripe awakening there is a very strong flow of energy running rampant in the body. Let’s work with that word for a second though…”rampant”. Yes, that is how it feels, but is the energy actually “rampant”? Is that it’s true nature? A good answer is NO. The energy, Shakti, is experienced as rampant because the natural channels from tailbone to crown chakra are blocked up with all sorts of stuff, inhibiting the natural flow. This is what the energy does…it finds a way to flow somewhere, like water finds its way down a creekbed, careening off of rocks. Our blocked chakras are like big rocks, and the energy is looking for a path that used to be open. It is searching for the clear way, but we usually haven’t been wanting it to find that path for a very long time. So, we experience the energy literally snaking around, on the loose inside of us, seeking completion with the crown chakra-rampant.
Let us lessen the rampant nature of Kundalini by listening deep inside. The places where it is striking resistance offers tremendous insight into what needs healing. When you sit still for long enough, and open up your body to movement, you will almost always find that there is a movement that wants to happen. When you allow the movement to begin, you may find that it feels familiar to you. It may even feel like coming home. In my own practices over the last 3 years, I have followed these movements into surprising places. Suddenly finding myself doing Tai Chi, Yoga postures, and spinning mudra dances. Authentic movement allows the powerful energy that is arising in you to have an expression, just go with it. Allow any feelings that arise to be expressed…that is nearly the most important part of any movement, in my book. Forget practicing, or repeating, just sit and go with what naturally arises. Resolution does occur through Kriyas and other forms of Spontaneous Movement. It can be a beautiful and wonderful way to transform another anxiety ridden K wave, into pure transformation.
I have found that it is best to just do the poses for as long as it feels right. That means that if I am standing on my head or in any pose known as “yoga” I do not hold the pose for the duration that they might teach in a class. Sometimes I am in a pose for 5 minutes. Sometimes I do 5 poses in 5 minutes, and then the movements that look more like Tai Chi come forward. Just let go of preconceived notions about these movements, and let them move you. Drop trying to understand why a specific movement makes your heart explode with joy, or why another one changes your state from fear-to pure love. Just enjoy the ride and if that fails…dance.
