Kundalini – My Revised Opinion

Several years ago I posted an article here about kundalini that I recently took down because I now feel it’s inaccurate. The article questioned whether kundalini was a good experience and suggested it may be a manipulation by energy vampires.

In the years since, even though my life has been purged of mantras, fears, and everything else that gives power to energy predators, I find myself experiencing gentle kundalini during meditation and when I’m in bed at night. It’s therefore clear to me that this kundalini is a natural thing, the result of spiritual progress.

I’m not so sure about the goodness of kundalini when a person practices the kind of meditation that opens the door to energy manipulation by psychic predators (that is, mantra meditation). See my article that explains the trouble with mantra meditation: The Hidden Agenda of Mantra Meditation.

When we invite psychic entities into our lives through a mantra that offers them worship (which is what mantras do), we give away our power to them. It’s then to be expected that they will use that power to manipulate us and feed on our energy, because we’ve given them permission for that by inviting them into psyche.

In such situations, it seems to me kundalini could be manipulated for the sake of provoking suffering, since suffering is a form of “edible energy” for those a rung higher than humans on the food chain. We’ve all heard stories of people who are tormented by the fiery experience of severe kundalini. Perhaps this is why they experience that.

I don’t pretend to be an expert on this subject, but I now am convinced, from my personal experience, that kundalini — so long as we don’t have energy predators involved — is a normal part of a rise in consciousness. It opens the chakras to a greater energy flow throughout the body and promotes the emergence of higher levels of awareness and spiritual power.
