Kundalini Awakening

Kundalini Quotes

Kundalini is the biological- psychological- spiritual mechanism driving human evolution, transforming humanity's consciousness, and making it possible for us to attain the tremendously expanded states of awareness, 'higher consciousness'.  

- Gopi Krishna

When you succeed in awakening the Kundalini, so that it starts to move out of it's mere potentiality, you necessarily start a world which is totally different from our world. It is the world of eternity.

- Carl G Jung

Kundalini awakening is the complete ending of self-centeredness, which release the energy which is limitless.

- Jiddu Krishnamurti

This process can be chaotic, intense, and rock the spirit and body to its core. There may be moments of ecstasy beyond what we ever imagined possible, visions that lift our soul, an elimination of everything we ever believed was true, and the unfolding of great challenges and blessings. For a few, this happens simply, as a calm and radiant seeing that penetrates the small self, dissolves the seeker, and accepts life as it is. This feels like seeing something obvious that had been strangely overlooked.”
- Bonnie L. Greenwell

Your trials did not come to punish you, but to awaken you - to make you realise that you are a part of Spirit and that just behind the sparks of your life is the Flame of Infinity.

- Paramahansa Yogananda

Emptiness can feel like a dark night of the soul, as described by Saint John of the Cross, because it is disorienting for the egoic self, which strives hard to keep us identified with our roles, emotions, and thoughts. But once we understand the nature of emptiness, we may fall in love with it, and then become it.
- Bonnie Greenwell

A few rare people are plunged into cosmic consciousness at the first arising of kundalini energy.  But more often it begins as a shaking or vibrating that may feel either gentle or harsh, perhaps bringing fear or perhaps bringing bliss, or even both at once.  Sometimes it seems to hit one hard in the gut, or cause an eruption in the heart, or gagging in the throat. It can feel like a rush of sexual energy, or a whole-body orgasm. It can feel like flashes of light or heat.  Whatever it does, you notice something unfamiliar is happening to you, and if you have never heard of the connection between energy and spirituality you are likely to be”
- Bonnie L. Greenwell

Kundalini is another name for Atma, Self or Shakti. We talk of it as being inside the body, because we conceive ourselves as limited to the body. But it is in reality both inside and outside, being no other than the Self or Shakti.

~ Sri Ramana Maharishi

Kundalini is responsible for all mystical experiences, classic Kundalini episodes, psychic awakenings, near-death experiences, inspired creativity / knowing.

~ Gopi Krishna

“The awakening of the Kundalini is the beginning of spiritual consciousness, and its union with Siva in the Sahasrara (crown chakra), ending in Samadhi, is the consummation.”

- Swami Nikhilananda 

People are under the assumption that the kundalini just flows from the base of the spine up. That's not the case at all. Kundalini also flows downward.

-  Frederick Lenz

Mind, breath and kundalini are connected; handle one, the other two gets affected automatically.

- Sri Amma Bhagwan

Try and stop your thoughts. Be patient and then the kundalini will flow through you and bring about substantial changes in your awareness.

- Frederick Lenz

Awakening the mystical kundalini prematurely is dangerous, because unless you have refined your being, you'll get all screwed up, entities, weird powers ... strange things. That is why I don't teach anyone how to open up the chakras.

- Frederick Lenz

Power is the active force in life. It is the force that makes awareness. The general term for spiritual power is Kundalini. Kundalini is the energy of life that creates awareness.

- Frederick Lenz

Your Kundalini rises. She is your mother. She is your individual mother and she gives you the second birth. That's how you get connected to the Divine Paradise. - Nirmala Srivastava

The kundalini rises and the kundalini is hot, it's a hot energy. Sometimes you feel it cascading up your spine, and it's kind of searing or it's tingling, it almost feels sexual.

- Frederick Lenz

All this so-called esoteric knowledge about chakras, energy field, kundalini, astral bodies, is dangerous as knowledge. As an experience, it is totally different thing. Don't acquire it as knowledge. If it is needed for your spiritual growth, it will come to you in it's right time, and then it will be an experience.

- Osho

Present is the reality. The past is finished, and the future doesn't exist. When the Kundalini rises She elongates those thoughts and establishes in the center where there is complete thoughtless awareness. And spiritually you grow in that thoughtless awareness which in Sanskrit we call as Nirvichaar Samadhi.

- Nirmala Srivastava

The real transformation upon the awakening of kundalini is that you shed your old tendencies and negativity like a snake sheds its old skin. You no longer feel angry or flustered over trivial matters unlike the earlier times. Your emotions and thoughts don't overpower and trample all over you anymore. You begin to gain control of yourself.

- Om Swami

Kundalini cures you, she improves you, she bestows all the blissful things upon you. She takes you away from the worries of grosser level.

- Nirmala Srivastava

We achieve self knowledge through the Kundalini. Now the journey starts towards God knowledge. Without self knowledge one cannot know about God as actualized knowledge.

- Nirmala Srivastava

When the Kundalini crosses the Agnya (third eye), you become thoughtlessly aware. Thoughtlessly aware means, you are aware but there is no thought. You become silent. When it crosses the brahmarandra (sahasrara) then the vibrations start flowing through you, and you get cool vibrations.

- Nirmala Srivastava

What is yoga ? In simple words, it is taking your attention to the Spirit. This is yoga. What does the kundalini do ? She raises your attention and takes it to the Spirit. Only after knowing the Spirit you can know God.

- Nirmala Srivastava

Your treasure - your perfection - is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the busy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart. The kundalini Shakti - the supreme energy of the divine - will take you there.

- Elizabeth Gilbert

“I suffered unbearable torture in silence, weeping internally at the sad turn of events, blaming myself bitterly again and again for having delved into the supernatural without first acquiring a fuller knowledge of the subject and providing against the dangers and risks of the path.”
- Gopi Krishna

The main hindrance is one's own antagonistic frame of mind. All the systems of Yoga in India and every form of religious discipline, worship, or prayer is designed to overcome the barriers posed by the overcritical intellect, by dogma, skepticism, ego, pride, and other recalcitrant traits of the mind.
- Gopi Krishna

There is nothing so erroneous as the opinions expressed by some scholars and men of science that religious experience is a pathological condition of the brain or an invasion from the unconscious. This irresponsible attitude destroys the very foundation of the precious urge responsible for the progress of mankind.”
- Gopi Krishna

Little did I realize that from that day onwards I was never to be my old normal self again, that I had unwittingly and without preparation or even adequate knowledge of it roused to activity the most wonderful and stern power in man, that I had stepped unknowingly upon the key to the most guarded secret of the ancients, and that thenceforth for a long time I had to live suspended by a thread, swinging between life on the one hand and death on the other, between sanity and insanity, between light and darkness, between heaven and earth.”
- Gop
