A web magazine with an interesting article describing the experience of someone who deliberately raised his Kundalini.


Epiphany: Gift of Light
Metta Zetty describes her spontaneous awakening experience. This is a beautiful example of the legendary expansion of consciousness which occurs when Kundalini rises.

Kundalini Crisis, Spiritual Highs, and Enlightenment 
Speaking from his personal experiences with Kundalini, Mark Leigh believes that the pursuit of a "spiritual high" creates imbalances in the system.  His web site elaborates his theory.

El Collie and C. Kress comment:  We think there may be some validity to Mark's ideas but we don't share his view that ALL Kundalini difficulties are the result of striving for transcendent experiences.  Some of the people in whom Kundalini has risen were atheists at the time, and many who had awakenings out of the blue were not in search of spiritual "highs" or doing practices like yoga, meditation, or anything else known to stimulate Kundalini.  At the time of El's spontaneous awakening, the main passions in her life were literally down to earth: gardening, art, writing and carpentry!  We believe that all of life is a spiritual journey and we don't consider mystical experiences more important or more holy than other life experiences.


Crop Circle Formations as Chakras
Joseph Mason is researching the connection between Kundalini, chakras and crop circles in heralding a great world change.  Like many others, he believes that humanity is nearing a leap to the Heart chakra level of consciousness.
