gets them this bad!!!
NEVER FORCE KUNDALINI TO
This is a partial list of the complications that can arise
from a Kundalini awakening, particularly if one tries to
force an awakening that their mind and body will be
unprepared for when overwhelmed, or worse, by a premature
Many of the cases at this webpage in Sweden
INVESTIGATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF 76 CASES OF KUNDALINI AROUSAL
by Marja Savola also point out the hazards of a prematurely
awakened Kundalini. More disturbing is the fact that many
people taking meditation or yoga classes are not forewarned
about the potential for Kundalini complications. When the
fireworks start, the teachers, and most Gurus, are powerless
to help (Spiritual Abandonment is more widespread than you
would imagine) in spite of any assurances to the contrary. I
have heard from many people who have found this out to their
1. An overload of one's nervous system with the potential
to cause a break with reality, necessitating a hospital stay
and medical treatment. In her warnings about Kundalini
even madness is claimed to be a pitfall for a person who
unwittingly forces an awakening without a guru (though
having a guru is no guarantee of a trouble-free awakening:
Jerry's Kundalini Experience, A.D.'s
The Serpent Bites), and
Kundalini And The Guru. I know from personal experience
that if you force Kundalini you can overload your nervous
system to the point that you feel like you are walking a
tightrope between sanity and insanity for days, weeks, and
in extreme cases, even years.
2. Short or long-term disorientation where
one spaces in and out of higher planes and is rendered
unable to focus long enough to be able to work. I have seen
a number of cases where people have been debilitated by
Kundalini and struggle for years trying to correct the
imbalances, often with no success and much despair.
3. Sexual dysfunction: I know of several people unable to
have normal realationships with their partners due to the
workings of the Kundalini current in the genital areas. I
have read of others with the same conditions. This usually
passes in time, but I know of indiviuals who have been
burdened with it for years.
4. Gastro Intestinal Disorders: I once had a condition
that a Guru in India said was caused by my raising Kundalini
energy pressing upon the colon area. Other people, like
Jerry (see his story in the link above), have suffered worse
5. Severe anxiety: when Kundalini becomes overwhelming,
it can make one feel as though they are on the brink of
losing their mind, and cause constant fear.
6. Nightly dreams where one leaves the body; in some
cases a person feels as if they are being tormented by
negative entities that seem too real and cause one to wake
up in total fear, thinking they are doomed to experience
these hellish dreams over and over.
7. Excessive Kundalini building up in the head when one
tries to study or read for extended periods of time along
with waking up all through the night from the increased
Kundalini energy flowing into the brain (this can put an end
to a person's pursuit of higher education, as I can attest,
and leave one tired all day from insufficient sleep).
8. Problems that surface years after the initial
awakening: If you are having what you consider to be a
flawless Kundalini experience, do not think you are out of
the woods. I had what could be considered an ideal Kundalini
awakening for about 7 years until things went awry; after 30
years of Kundalini rising in me I am still limited by my
once flawless awakening.
9. Disturbingly, some peoples' egos seem to expand along
with their consciousness when they have what they consider
to be an advanced Kundalini awakening. I was somewhat
shocked when I first came across this, being of the mind
that Kundalini would purify any blocks within people and
fashion them into human beings equivalent to the Mother
Teresa and the Dalai Lama of this world. Not so; some of
the poorest representations of spiritual growth gone wrong
have been people with advanced Kundalini experiences, or
alleged to be fully enlightened, some of the finest have
been those with the most challenging and problem-ridden
10. Lastly, the worst and most puzzling complications
(and contradictions) are the cases where some Spiritual
Masters with fully awakened Kundalini, and revered for their
enlightened states, have committed unenlightened actions
against students, revealing character flaws that once seemed
impossible in individuals said to be united with the Divine.
For example, examine this widely reported account, and the
websites of ex-Sahaja Kundalini Yoga practitioners, and by ex-Siddha Kundalini Yoga students, both of which
expose many problems within Kundalini Yoga organizations.
These are only a few of the many disturbing reports of
enlightened beings not living up to the claims of
Kundalini--or the claims of higher consciousness "cleaning
house" and making us better human beings.
Perhaps this is why the Hindu Masters strongly advised
following strict moral precepts when on the spiritual path.
Perhaps more emphasis on trying to live a live of Love, and
working on being a compassionate, decent person is the most
important component in making a person spiritually,
mentally, and morally sound.
In spite of these complications and contradictions, I
still believe higher consciousness is the destiny of all
beings, and that in the future with greater understanding,
scientific validation, and proper preparation, it will usher
in a Golden Age.
For anyone having Kundalini complications, see the
Kundalini Survival Guide, be cautious in what you try to
correct your condition, try to live a life of Love, and do
not lose hope in yourself or in the blessings your awakening
will one day bring forth. Take hope and inspiration in the
writings of who emerged from a nightmarish Kundalini
disaster into an awakening that blessed him with bliss
filled days and nights to the end of his life.
