The Inner Fire

 

The Dream

I was asleep and dreaming.  I had asked for guidance when I lay down, something to help me understand the exhaustion I was feeling that resembled mononucleosis – where even chewing food took too much effort.  I wanted to understand and I wanted an answer.  What was wrong with me?

In the dream, I walked into a very strange store, with long, rectangular tables all around me, and on every table, from edge to edge with no empty spaces, were bottles of nail polish.  Standing behind one table was a very large woman wearing a muumuu, a loose-fitting outfit worn in Hawaii, and on it were enormous pure red flowers.  The background color was a lighter version of the same red.  The woman looked at me and immediately said, “You need Kundalini Red.”  Then she began searching through all the thousands of bottles on the table.

I woke up.  What did this mean?  I never wore nail polish.  Who was the woman?  I had never been to Hawaii.  I had heard the term “Kundalini” before, but I didn’t remember what it meant. 

Absurdly, I visited several stores that sold good quality nail polish, but none had a color called “Kundalini Red.”  The color was emblazoned in my mind.  It was a pure red, totally balanced between yellow and blue.  No one had this exact color.

Thus began my search to discover the meaning of my dream.

A few months later, I visit an ashram in South Fallsberg, New York, and met an Indian Meditation Master called Gurumayi.  She was dressed in red – Kundalini Red??? – and I received Shakipat initiation that very first day.

Kundalini – the energy coiled at the base of the spine right where the Root Chakra is located. 

Shakipat Initiation – the awakening of the Kundalini Energy by a Divine Being inhabiting a physical body – a Guru or advanced spiritual master.

 

Initiation

Each person’s experience of Kundalini awakening is unique.  For me, it was an odd combination of sensations and feelings:

  • I felt sparks going off just above my head in my Crown Chakra.
  • I was struck “dumb” – I found it difficult to speak about anything, as if words no longer existed.  My mind had been stopped, at least temporarily (for about 3 days, actually), although I couldn’t have described this to anyone at the time.
  • Inside me, a ball of “impurities” or “dross” coalesced, about the size of a baseball.  I don’t know where it was in my body, but I could sense it’s presence.  Over the next few years, it kept shrinking until finally it disappeared completely.
  • All I wanted to do was sit in meditation.  Fortunately, I already had learned to meditate.  Doing anything else, like going to work, was very hard for the first few weeks.

As I said, each person’s experience of Kundalini awakening is totally unique.  Some people describe feeling blissful, but that wasn’t my experience.

Kundalini and the Kundalini awakening process is described in thousands of writings in the Hindu tradition.  There is very little information in the Western traditions about this.  However, all humans have the Kundalini energy in their 4-body system.

The awakening of Kundalini is a very important part of the process of Awakening your Spiritual Consciousness to the Knowledge that you are Divine.  Therefore, it is happening to everyone who is awakening now on Planet Earth. 

 

Purification

Kundalini is the Divine expression of  the “fire” element in the human body.  When it awakens, it uncurls, and in snakelike movements, it begins its journey up the central spiritual channel of the body (the sushumna) that surrounds the spine.

The first thing the Kundalini does is start to cleanse these stagnant energies in the fire of purification.    Since the Kundalini moves in a snake-like motion, it weaves up and back, higher and lower, in a process that can take years or even lifetimes.   As the Kundalini does it work, we often experience all kinds of symptoms (physcial, emotional, mental, and spiritual), many of which seem like “illnesses” or “dis-ease” and which cannot be diagnosed or treated by western medicine.

If you are experiencing symptoms that the allopathic medical community cannot diagnose, one possibility is that your Kundalini is awakening.  As I am not an expert in Kundalini awakening, I cannot tell you what to do or how to handle this, or even where to find someone who has answers to those kinds of questions.  My recommendation would be to ask your True Self for guidance in this matter.
