I soon noticed, through my own internal experience and the experiences of others about me who had received shaktipat, that this divine internal power not merely has the energy to give one the best of mystical experiences, but is also a great healer. In her goal to take the seeker to the realization of oneness with Great Mind, she must support us to remove our inner obstacles on the physical, intellectual, emotional, psychic and religious levels.
Much like any development and therapeutic process, being up against limitations, limitations, bad thoughts, negative traits and past difficult experiences and unresolved problems, could be difficult and often frightening. When coupled with powerful, spontaneous experiences of energy moving in ways that the individual has no previous education, information or comprehension of, it could be overwhelming, major the average person to seek support from clergy, spiritual advisers, emotional health practitioners and holistic practitioners-many of whom are with a lack of the mandatory experience and understanding to provide sufficient help, and a number of whom could possibly misdiagnose the individual’s experience, labeling it pathological. Hence it is crucial that anybody giving support to people who have awakened kundalini have information and connection with the kundalini process across spiritual cultures.
There are lots of names for the kundalini across religious traditions. Several are: the Tibetan Buddhist tummo, or internal fire, the Chrisitian Sacred Spirity, the Chinese Martial Arts and Healing Arts Chi, and the num of African-american tribal dacers and healers. When one examines the mystical texts, poetry and historical product of a number of traditions experiential paradigms arise describing the awakening and action of this transforming inner power. Probably the most articulated system may be the Chakra/Nadi system that looks in school for spiritual awakening, Tibetan Buddhism and Sufism.
In this system the kundalini is awakened and actions up through the key station or sushumna, striking the chakras or energy centers in the delicate, power body. In the act of going through the chakras the kundalini releases a variety of physical, intellectual, mental, psychic and spiritual experiences. Throughout the Yoga, Tibetan Buddhist and Sufi traditions the language may possibly differ in explaining the paradigm, but they are primarily the same.
The Religious process is less fully articulated, but is hinted at in the Book of Revelations as Steve, after receiving the awareness of the Holy Nature from Jesus, later experiences a series of mystical visions. In one he is revealed the seven seals and the eight tones of Lord who preside around them. Each seal shows a degree of thought or consciousness. In Kabbalah, the mystical route of Judaism, there is an intricate system of the Tree of Living and the sefiroth.
Note can also be made of the 7 heavens and the Hebrew letters or sounds applied to attain them. In the Native American custom, the Hopi Formation Story explains vibrational stores that work across the axis or spinal column. These five stores are situated underneath the navel, at the heart, the throat, just below the top of the head and at the the surface of the head-a system rather like the chakra system.
