Raising Kundalini Safely
Perhaps you've heard about the benefits of kundalini, or maybe you're reading books, taking kundalini classes or kundalini seminars, or you do practices with your lover, or maybe you even teach kundalini yoga. Maybe you're curious to learn more.
Definition of kundalini:
Kundalini is an essential life force energy that rises up the spine, enlivening the body physically and spiritually. It's one element of spiritual enlightenment, but alone does not constitute enlightenment. It's an awakening and opening of the flow of energy through the chakras or energy centers. It makes you feel alive, blissful, and supercharged if you do it safely. It brings a radiance to the body, aura, and spirit, and helps us age gracefully.
Your desire to raise your kundalini has brought you here in perfect synchronicity. If you're still seeking kundalini activation, spiritual awakening, or trying to sustain your higher states, you've come to an auspiciously blessed place. It's been commonly assumed that practices are the main way to raise kundalini, but with Divine Openings practices are not necessary--there's an easier way.
Divine Openings ignites kundalini energy effortlessly.
It often happens quickly, and always without effort or practices. Kundalini rising is just one of many effects or results of Divine Openings, such that we don't think of it as any big deal.
Some people experience flashes of firelike heat, increased energy, or simply more pure aliveness. Their eyes might shine with an inner light, and they tend to activate others, much as a lit match lights other matches it comes close to. Eyes are not just light receptors. In advanced states of spiritual awakening, the eyes actually emit light.
Some describe feeling as if their entire being is lit up temporarily like a white hot welding torch, with accompanying feelings of bliss and peace. Everyone is different. For some it's very subtle, or more of a cool fire. Radical kundalini flashes are not necessary and are not meant to be sustained in any case. Our neurology is not yet evolved to sustain it for any length of time.
Sensual passion, love, or spiritual passion is usually increased. Which one you experience depends on your Large Self's plan for you, your own heart's desires, and stage of life.
The internet is full of scary stories about people having severe problems with kundalini rising. We simply can't address that, because we've just not had any problems with it with Divine Openings. We don't know what practices they're using, but kundalini rising is gentle with the Grace of Divine Openings and the subtle but powerful effect you get by reading the book, Things Are Going Great In My Absence.
The rise of Kundalini just happens at some point, without fanfare. It usually feels like bliss when most of the resistances to it have been burned off, but you weren't working at it, so you didn't notice. It's wonderful that it's so easy and effortless.
In eight years only a couple of people needed to email us to ask us how to smooth it out, and once we soothed them a bit with a phone session, they were fine. They didn't realize they were resisting it out of fear, and fear and resistance do cause pain in any endeavor. Kundalini can and should safely rise.
Kundalini rises for many just from reading the book, Things Are Going Great In My Absence. Others might require a phone session or a live hands-on Divine Opening or two, a retreat, or a course. for full awakening.
This is the age of acceleration and miracles, and nothing demonstrates this more powerfully than Divine Openings. One of the phenomena of Divine Openings is that it causes the kundalini fire to light and rise without effort, practices, or work. It does much more than that, but kundalini was your area of interest when you came to this page, so we addressed kundalini first. Now learn more about the many other things Divine Openings does for you, beyond kundalini, as you read on.
The effects of Divine Openings are powerful, so you would not need or want to do fire breath or strong kundalini practices with it--it would be too much. When you're already going warp speed you don't need to accelerate more! With Divine Openings you may get a bit over-energized at times, but you're given simple tools to soothe that, and it won't be difficult if it does happen.
You need never experience problems with kundalini energy spikes with Divine Openings, and you're shown how to stay out of resistance to it, which keeps it smooth.
Welcome to easy kundalini activation, and personal evolution that unfolds without effort. This new leading edge paradigm of human evolution is based on Grace. Through Divine Openings, Grace does for you what you cannot do for yourself.
when you open your heart and mind
and allow Grace in.
Divine Openings is different, so you cannot compare it to anything else. As you read, if your mind starts struggling to stuff it in some box with something you already know, like kundalini or shakti, you simply can't; it's unlike anything you've ever done. For example, your crown, third eye, and other chakras will open and balance, but we won't discuss, think about, or work on your chakras.
Major lifelong issues resolve, traumas disappear, patterns dissolve, spiritual channels open, karma is erased, and you won't even know how it happened. You won't analyze, work on it, or think about it. You won't do austerities or work at all in our spiritual retreat courses or online courses. Upon spiritual awakening, issues and limitations fall away, gradually for some, rapidly for others. This is spiritual awakening that works in practical life.
You do your 10%, and Grace does 90% of it for you. You learn to let The Divine do the heavy lifting. In addition to raising kundalini, Divine Openings initiates or deepens spiritual enlightenment, reconnects and upgrades your DNA, lights up your light body, wakes up your full power, ignites your Divine Intelligence (inner genius), and resolves your "issues" -- and once you are free, you don't ever have to go back. We humorously refer to it as getting on the automatic upgrade program of spiritual awakening. Once it begins, it keeps unfolding like a beautiful lotus, in every area of your life. So you see, kundalini rising is but one minor side effect of Divine Openings.
What are kriyas?
This term is used in various ways. In kundalini classes it means "an exercise." There are kriyas for this and kriyas for that.
Kriya was originally a term for automatic movements, twitches, or vocalizations that sometimes occur with the rise of kundalini. The person experiencing them has no conscious control over them. The Presence has taken over their bodies.
Kriyas can take many forms, from the body automatically moving itself into complex and difficult yoga postures (even if you don't know any yoga) - to dances, songs, and chants you don't know (possibly in a language you don't know,) to subtle nodding of the head.
The movements were traditionally said to be clearing the karma, but we now know from Divine Openings that karma is an outdated concept, and even if you do believe in it, karma is made unecessary by Grace. Now we would say kriyas are inidicative of shifting vibrational patterns in the body, the body letting go of old patterns, energy pathways opening up, and vibration being raised. We'd say that you are opening to your true self, letting go of what is not you, not "clearing" negativity or karma.
It is said that yoga originated from observing people spontaneously going through kriyas during kundalini awakening. People surmised that if they reversed the process and did those exact postures regularly, their kundalini would rise and they would become enlightened. This is similar to thinking that if you do the same dance steps a beautiful person does, you will become beautiful. This "backtrack to enlightenment" method is unfortunately a very slow route to kundalini awakening and enlightenment, and there's no guarantee it will ever result in full kundalini awakening or enlightenment, although it does feel good and is beneficial.
The most common types of kriyas are rocking, nodding, twitching, and shaking, and they range from tiny shudders to doing dramatic automatic movements. With Divine Openings we say Divine Presence takes over your body and does what needs to be done to free up your energy and open the pathways. As energy begins to move more freely, the kinks and blockages are opened up. Some people cry or scream and then don't remember doing it, because their Large Self took over their body completely for a short time in order to get the job done as fast as possible, by Grace.
The main thing is to let go and don't resist. The sooner you let go, the sooner the kriyas resolve and cease. Usually there's an inner feeling of safety while it happens. I've seen people laugh at it, and it stops immediately. If they get scared or upset about it, it seems to persist longer, but of course, what you resist persists. There's a huge sense of release afterward, and the energy pathways are opened so kundalini Life Force can flow freely.
It really doesn't matter whether kriyas are experienced or not. They're not necessary, for spiritual enlightenment or anything else. Some people experience kriyas more radically than others, some don't experience kriyas at all, or they're barely noticeable, like a slight nodding of the head.
With Divine Openings you can be sure that the kundalini energy will rise, and you can use the exercises of kundalini practice to keep your energy flowing freely.
