Kundalini ~ What is it?

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Kundalini is a potent spiritual force that lies dormant in each one of us, and is usually awakened with advanced, spiritual maturity, after sufficient time/study/focus to cleanse your body, thoughts, emotions and spirit.  This lengthy purification process is essential because any blockages remaining in your physical and/or energetic bodies, will stop the flow of Kundalini and cause painful problems.

Historically, this spiritual process was hidden from laypeople through hard to find ancient, symbolic coding, and advanced spiritual teachings originally developed for royalty and spiritual adepts.

Today, however, you could say the knowledge of Kundalini has come out of the closet, as Gurus from India have brought these once secret teachings to the West in the form of Yoga, meditation, pranayama and other forms of spiritual study.

Physiology of Kundalini

Dormant, Kundalini lies as a coiled serpent between our Base and Second chakras. However once activated, it relies upon the nadis, a subtle energy system, to carry it up the spine toward the crown chakra.  Although the Shushuma nadi is the primary channel for awakened Kundalini, the Ida (cooling, feminine) and Pingala (warming, masculine) nadis are important too, as they wind around our chakras, bringing life force to our nervous system, while balancing and preparing us for our Kundalini experience.

Kundalini can be safely awakened through a Guru or teacher’s spiritual transmission or over time through spiritual practices such as Yoga and meditation.  However always remember, that although Kundalini travels through subtle energy channels, once activated, it is a force to be reckoned with and can wreck havoc to the uninitiated.

Cultivating Spiritual Awareness

Monday, January 6th, 2014

We are all born spiritually aware, yet because of our cultural conditioning this sacred gift for most of us, disappears early in life.  Years later, we may catch our first glimpse at remembering as we seek a deeper meaning in our lives and the world around us.  For Spiritual Awareness arises when we address life’s challenges with insight, forgiveness and understanding.  If we choose to continue along this path, we give ourselves the opportunity to transform and grow spiritually through our life experience.

Cultivating spiritual awareness takes time, introspection and patience.  By initiating the practice of meditation, being fully present with each passing moment, and by following your inner-wisdom, you can gradually release conflict, find your life’s true purpose and work for the highest good of all concerned.

Have Your Senses Become More Acute?

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Since we have stepped over the threshold into the 5th World many of you may have begun experiencing subtle or dramatic changes to your senses.  Do not be alarmed as this is simply how your body is adjusting to the intense higher frequencies currently bombarding our planet.

If you are finding that loud noise like babies crying, dishes clanking, background sound in restaurants or even some people’s voices hurt your ears and nervous system; you can find relief by using earplugs.  Or perhaps your hearing has expanded to include psychic sounds such as telephone ringing before it actually rings, faint voices in a quiet background, or celestial music and singing.  No, you’re not going crazy!  These are simply indications that you are opening to higher dimensions.

Likewise, you may begin to see things from the corner of your eyes, colors or auric fields around people, plants, animals or even inanimate objects.  Or you may find yourself avoiding crowds, certain types of food and odors.

When these changes occur it is very important to listen to your body and accommodate its needs.  Remember, the shift happening now requires that we become more sensitive to our own subtle nuances, as well as our surroundings.

The best way to work with these changes is simply to go with the flow and not resist.  Becoming more consistent with meditation or yoga regimes will help your body realign smoothly.  Sound attunements via crystal bowls or chanting may also help, as well as periodic energy attunements.

Right Use of Will: What is it?

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

We all know that when we exercise our personal Will we are using self-discipline to motivate us to take charge of our behavior. Aligned with our ego and desires, this form of Will assists our intellect to consciously decide the best course of action.

When we align our personal will with Divine Will our life becomes infused with spiritual energy that works toward our spiritual growth, transformation and enlightenment. Allowing us to grow unconditional love embodied with Spirit, this Right Use of Will helps us move toward our Divine potential, by accelerating our evolutionary path, through an expanded consciousness and higher purpose in life.

 

How to Connect with Divine Will

Yearn to do so

Following your Heart

 

Once you have achieved this spiritual resonation, you will be able to shine your Light within to others.
