Anything goes (almost).

Re: Very Amazing Experience

I am not sure I should post this, but here goes. The other day i did my yantra yoga routine and I performed it with great rhythm and everything was flowing very well. After a few hours I sat down to do some meditation and I noticed there was a greater deal of pressure in the forehead. When I closed my eyes and got really relaxed, all of the sudden out of nowhere a great flood of incredible light starting opening up in my head. It was absolutely incredible,I got a little scared because of the intensity with which this light came in. I immediately opened my eyes and I was a little shaken. My heart was beating and there was a a wave of intense heat in the body. It was moving like waves in my body. Even thought I stopped this light from going any further the heat in the body was persistent. It was not uncomfortable, but it was hot. I have read Gopi Krishna's book on Kundalini awakening and I am 100% sure this is what happened because the light he described in the book was exactly what I experienced. I looked at myself in the mirror and my pupils were very dilated, if you saw my eyes you would have thought I had taken ecstacy or some drug. I did some alternate nostril breathing to try and balance out the energy and it seems that it made the heat subsided and the pupil dilation also came down quite a bit. I managed to get to sleep, when I woke up I could still feel energy moving in the body, but it had decreased quite a bit. Another interesting thing is that I was strangely very aware of everything around me and my eyes were very open. I had read about Kundalini, but I had no idea it would happen this quick. I have only been practising yoga for a year and half give or take a few months and I have only recently started doing seated meditation. I though these kinds of things happen after very prolonged practice. I have read extensively on the dangers of prematurely activating this energy, so I know I should be very careful with this whole situation. What I noticed is that a lot of these experiences started happening once I started to do seated meditation, before I only did the Yantra Yoga practice and I never had something like this happen, sure I felt a good pleasurable heat in the body after practise, but nothing like the heat explosion and that incredible light that happened the other day. It seems guidance will be necessary for me! I am hoping someone on this forum has experienced this and can maybe relate?

I practice yantra yoga which has done wonders for my life. So any books by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu are really good. I would also recommend a book called "Kundalini The Evolutionary Energy in Man" It is by Gopi Krishna! You can also watch a great video of him from the 70's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VV8QUEHL-Y . If you are doing meditation you must know about kundalini, otherwise it may catch you off guard if you are now aware of it.

My Mantra Diksha/Shaktipat/Kundalini Initiation, Guru Siyag

Postby YogaDude11 » Wed Jan 16, 2013 6:26 pm

A while back I posted about an amazing experience (viewtopic.php?f=45&t=7654) that I had while I was practicing yantra yoga and meditation. It was a kundalini experience that left a profound mark on me, but at the same kind of scared me. I decided that before I go further with any spiritual practice it was wise to find a spiritual master that can guide me. I started looking around and somehow I stumbled upon this Guru that was doing initiation via mantra and there was 2 videos to watch to complete the initiation. I thought it was not gonna do much, but I decided to do it anyways. After watching the video and receiving the mantra and initiation to my utter amazement i felt like some kind of energy was coursing through my spine. It completely took me by surprise. On the website of this guru it was stated that after you are initiation you should visualize the guru's picture (aka Guru Yoga) and chant the mantra silently. On the website it also stated that after you receive initiation when the kundalini starts to get activated you body will start performing all kinds of yogic postures and breathing exercises by itself. So after I received the initiation I sat down to meditate and started repeating the mantra and immediately I felt like my body wanted to move. To my utter amazement and disbelief my body started to move and perform yogic postures one after the other. The postures my body was doing were so unique that I had never seen them in any book or movie anywhere. This lasted for about 1 hour straight without stopping. It felt like I was in a meditative state and my body was like a doll being moved into different postures with incredible precision. After the mediation I felt very peaceful and centered. It was like a natural high, it was one of the most incredible and amazing things that has happened in my entire life. I also decided to let my mother watch the videos and she experienced the exact same thing, so it was not just me. She was equally astounded and could not understand how this was even possible. When we started talk afterwards and to compare the postures we noticed that the routines that were performed were very different. So it seems that the kundalini knows each person's body and what needs to be done to achieve optimal results. I have been doing this form of yoga for the past several months now and over time the exercises have shifted from physical postures to very heavy breathing exercises and breath retention with all kinds of abdominal and chin locks and many mudras (hand gestures). The sheer variety and combinations of these involuntary yogic movements has left me absolutely speechless and in absolute awe.

I provided some links here to show what I was experiencing.

I found some videos of other people undergoing the yogic movement, mine were similar to those but different.
