A Soul’s Journey 86

“Kundalini – Goddess Of Transformation and Awakening……”

Within each and every one of us, there is masculine and feminine energy.

The masculine is associated with the right-hand side of the body, the feminine the left.

We want to find an equal balance of both within because then we can experience harmony – A merging of body and soul, spirit and matter – a divine union, a sacred marriage, the hieros gamos.

The Kundalini lies coiled within the sacrum or sacred bone and carries within it a sacred dimension.

Once the two energies are balanced, and the chakras cleared, the kundalini can make a safe passage from within the Sacrum up through Sushumna and out through Sahasrara – the Crown chakra.

This is indeed sacred work.

The work of Self Realization.

It is explained beautifully below –

Self-realization is a subtle inner experience which manifests when the kundalini rises from the sacrum along the spinal column to emerge from the crown of the head at the place known as the fontanelle.

Once awakened, the kundalini bathes the attention of the seeker in a state of serenity characterized by the slowing, and the gradual cessation of thoughts (Nirvichara Samadhi). The kundalini goes on to confer a state of contemplation and bliss (Ananda).

As she ascends the kundalini lifts the yogi’s attention to the Self. When his consciousness is immersed in the Self, the one seeking truth knows that he is the Spirit, for the Spirit enters his consciousness. There is no longer any dualism between knowing and being. These two states are merged in a single absolute, the sole reality of the Self.

When the kundalini (Mother Goddess) awakens, she lifts the Spirit (Shiva, the reflection of God the Father in the heart) until they are united in the limbic region of the brain (called in the Indian spiritual tradition Sahasrara). This is just above the region known to physicians as the thalamus, a Greek word meaning Bridal-Chamber. Thus yoga is the point of union between the human spirit and the Divine. But it is also the primordial divine union. which existed before the separation of the male principle (God the Father, the spirit) and the female (Adi Shakti, Kundalini) It is the union between the Bridegroom and the Bride described in the Song of Songs, the hieros gamos of the neo-platonists.”

The Search For The Divine Mother by Gwenaël Verez

As Ramana Maharshi said,

“To know the Self is to be the Self, for there are not two Selves. To know is to be. Awareness is Being”

Believe me, at times I have felt it would have been easier to give up the quest, just go back to being ignorant and unaware. The changes that have occurred in my life have been positively difficult – there is no other word to describe them, but something always pulls me back.

I’m not one to cut corners or leave a job half-finished, besides when you have felt the love that resides inside – even if only for a few seconds – you have felt it and so the quest begins because you know you are so much more than you think you are and you know that the treasure lies within.

And I for one am not going to let the treasure go undiscovered.

No, I will push on until the purifying fire of the kundalini burns away and destroys all impurities standing in the way of me being at one with my true Self.

“Self-Realization is the most important step a seeker can take because it opens up a new dimension – the Divine nature of man”

No, I’m not leaving this game, I have come too far.

So upon my return from my Soul Portraits retreat, I did some research of my own and that’s when I came upon my new Kundalini coach, Myree Morsi.

I signed up immediately for a complimentary 15-minute session.
