It seems that you are in the darkness under the light of human knowledge when discussing Kundalini. Most of the people are misguided by spiritualists and psychics about Kundalini awakening. So, the question arises, what are the Kundalini awakening benefits? Kundalini is always inactive from birth. When Kundalini awakened, the energy shoots up through the spine and affects many mental changes. This is because the chakras have opened during the Kundalini awakening. When a complete Kundalini awakening takes place, all seven chakras or energy centers in your body are open. Kundalini requires many years of spiritual practice, both mental and physical.
Many people devote their whole life to awaken their Kundalini by practicing meditation and spiritual work and after that, they find the experience of the Kundalini awakening even though seasoned yogis tend to have accelerated results. Shaktipat is a fast technique to awaken your Kundalini. The process involves being open to energy with total surrender and opportunity.
If you are the one who is in tune with the universal energy, the Kundalini awakening process will be smoother for you rather than be a natural thing. So, what are the Kundalini awakening benefits? Many who have gone through this process report the following benefits of Kundalini awakening. Kundalini is considered to occur in the chakra and nadis of the subtle body. Each chakra is said to contain special characteristics and with proper training, moving Kundalini through these chakras can help express or open these characteristics.
Kundalini is described as a sleeping, dormant potential force in the human organism. It is one of the components of an esoteric description of the 'subtle body', which consists of nadis (energy channels), chakras (psychic centers), prana (subtle energy), and bindu (drops of essence). Kundalini is described as being coiled up at the base of the spine. The description of the location can vary slightly, from the rectum to the navel. Kundalini is said to reside in the triangular-shaped sacrum bone in three and a half coils.
Ramana Maharshi mentioned that Kundalini is nothing but the natural energy of the self, where the self is the universal consciousness (Paramatma) present in every being, and that the individual mind of thoughts cloaks this natural energy from unadulterated expression. Advaita teaches self-realization, enlightenment, God-consciousness, and nirvana. But, the initial Kundalini awakening is just the beginning of the actual spiritual experience. Self-inquiry meditation is considered a very natural and simple means of reaching this goal.
You will feel different types of experience some of above and each person experience will differ to another when Kundalini is awakened because everyone is unique.
The experience of Kundalini awakening can happen when one is either prepared or unprepared.
According to Hindu tradition, in order to be able to integrate this spiritual energy, a period of careful purification and strengthening of the body and nervous system is usually required beforehand. Yoga and Tantra propose that Kundalini can be awakened by a teacher but body and spirit must be prepared by yogic austerities such as pranayama or breath control, physical exercises, visualization, and chanting. Patanjali emphasized a firm ethical and moral foundation to ensure the aspirant is comfortable with a reasonable degree of discipline and has a serious intention to awaken their full potential. The student is advised to follow the path in an open-hearted manner.
Traditionally, people would visit ashrams in India to awaken their dormant Kundalini energy. Typical activities would include regular meditation, mantra chanting, and spiritual studies as well as a physical asana practice such as Kundalini yoga. However, Kundalini is now widely known outside of the Hindu religion and many cultures globally have created their own ways to awaken the Kundalini energy within people. Without explanation, an increasingly large percentage of people are experiencing Kundalini energy awakenings spontaneously which means that it is not vital to follow a distinct set of instructions or rules in order to awaken the energy.
Kundalini can also awaken spontaneously for no obvious reason or triggered by intense personal experiences such as accidents, near-death experiences, childbirth, emotional trauma, extreme mental stress, and so on. Some sources attribute spontaneous awakenings to the grace of God or possibly to spiritual practice in past lives.
A spontaneous awakening in one who is unprepared or without the assistance of a good teacher can result in an experience which has been termed as 'Kundalini crisis', 'spiritual emergency', or 'Kundalini syndrome'. The symptoms are said to resemble those of Kundalini awakening but are experienced as unpleasant, overwhelming, or out of control. Unpleasant side effects are also said to occur when the practitioner has not approached Kundalini with due respect and in a narrow egotistical manner.
Kundalini has been described as a highly creative intelligence that dwarfs an individual's own. Kundalini awakening, therefore, requires surrender. It is not an energy that can be manipulated by the ego. Some writers use the term 'Kundalini syndrome' to refer to physical or psychological problems arising from experiences traditionally associated with Kundalini awakening.
It is considered by yogis that Kundalini can be awakened by shaktipat (spiritual transmission by a guru or teacher) or by spiritual practices such as yoga or meditation. There are two broad approaches to Kundalini awakening which are active and passive. The active approach involves systematic physical exercises and techniques of concentration, visualization, pranayama (breath practice), and meditation under the guidance of a competent teacher. These techniques come from any of the four main branches of yoga and some forms of yoga such as Kriya yoga, Kundalini yoga, and Sahaja yoga emphasizes Kundalini techniques.
The passive approach is instead a path of surrender where one lets go of all the obstructions to the awakening rather than trying to actively awaken Kundalini. A chief part of the passive approach is shaktipat where one individual's Kundalini is awakened by another who already has the experience. Shaktipat only raises Kundalini temporarily but gives the student an experience to use as a basis.
According to the Hatha yoga text, the Goraksasataka, certain Hatha yoga practices including Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha, and Kumbhaka can awaken Kundalini. Another Hatha yoga text, the Khecarīvidyā, states that Kechari Mudra enables one to raise Kundalini and access various stores of amrita (nector / drops of essance) from bindu in the head, which subsequently flood the body.
The spiritual teacher Meher Baba emphasized the need for a master when actively trying to awaken Kundalini. Kundalini is a latent power in the higher body. When awakened, it pierces through six chakras or functional centers and activates them. Without a master, the awakening of the Kundalini cannot take anyone guru very far on the path, and such indiscriminate or premature awakening is fraught with dangers of self-deception as well as misuse of powers. The Kundalini enables man consciously to cross the lower planes and it ultimately merges into the universal cosmic power of which it is a part, and which also is at times described as Kundalini. The important point is that the awakened Kundalini is helpful only up to a certain degree, after which, it cannot ensure further progress. It cannot dispense with the need for the grace of a perfect master.
Spiritual reality takes you through a unique journey, a journey that will change your life. A journey that will develop you and make you knowledgeable and peaceful. Peace can sometimes be so far away and inner bliss even farther away. Take the time now to spend some real quality time by going within. Find that sense of peace that lies within. Visit the place where inner bliss dwells and waits patiently for your return. Let yourself unwind and compose yourself for a few precious moments of peace. Remember that your mind is much more far-reaching than your physical brain. Your mind, as consciousness, is nonphysical, while your brain is just the physical translator of your consciousness.
Basic supramental meditation (Kundalini awakening/initiation) by divine blessings / Shaktipat is the beginning of meditation. Meditation is a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent. One can meditate while doing his day's work as another.
