Be Metaphysical: Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Energy…. What does kundalini energy feel like? I did a hashtag search on instagram this morning on #kundalini to see if anyone shared the “how to’s” or “feeling” of the energy. I only found cool people, pictures and “teachers”. Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 12.56.48 PMSo I will try to provide my insight and experience. Kundalini/Prana/Qi is built up through conscious breathing, placing attention on the inhalation and exhalation of each breath. At first I felt the energy after about 30 – 60 minutes of conscious breathing using my nose only, tongue to roof of my mouth, relaxed jaw, sitting in comfortable posture or doing yoga. The energy feels like a pressure. it’s like a subtle version of the intense moment before you orgasm. Where will you feel it? It is said to be dormant at the base of your spine (root chakra). Through my experience your thought will control which of the 7 chakras you feel the pressure at. Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 12.59.31 PMI start from my root chakra and work my way up to the crown chakra and repeat the cycle. I began with using mantras such as lam, vam, yam, ram… etc I prefer using mantras internally. I hope I helped let me know if you can relate! I think the goal is to feel this energy all the time/ be aware of breath. More recently When I focus on my breath I instantly feel it swaying back and forth like a snake until I focus it. For a short period it was a bit annoying but once I realized focusing stopped the swaying sensation It was no longer a discomfort. Ok that’s enough knowledge for today and a few weeks peace and practice internal Alchemy!

Side Effects: I think this energy had something to do with  suddenly losing the desire of eating meat. I became more aware of my breathing and my thoughts were very clear. I had more energy even though I seem to be eating less. Vegetables that I did not eat at all became what I preferred to eat. I never was big on drinking water …. All I drink is water these days.  Controlling when I went to sleep was easier as well, I would simply breathe into the state of sleep.  Sexual orgasms are also controlled by breath and can be used to accelerate the process if you can control it.   These are all the things that happened physically.  There are many metaphysical experiences that I have had during meditations while feeling and gaining a better understanding of what this energy is capable of.  More coming soon
