Yes, I wondered what was that all about!
And worked very hard so that it would never happen again. That is how I got extremely interested in health.. holistic health.. mental, physical, and spiritual... and learned and am continuing to learn all I can about how to live in the "heavenly realms", rather than the hell I went through. I really did think I was in hell when I was in the hospital. My sister in law visited me, and I was in the isolation room and on the floor on a mat, and she asked me if I knew where I was, (I was soooo out of it) and I told her... "hell".
One reason why I think this could have been, at least, partially related to kundalini, is that when I was coming "back" to "reality" I remember lying on my bed there, and seeing mandalas swirling and twirling in my inner vision... very strange it was. And gee, I don't know why I am sharing all this.. being sort of a secretive, private person.
Anyway, glory be to God, it is all behind me, and much good has come out of it.
thankyou for sharing that with me. i guess i am at a place at the moment of comeing to terms with the whole experience which had and has brought up so much stuff mainly fear from going so far out of the normal and now liveing with the process of kunadalini and moveing forwrad. i have come along way but it is hard to make any firm decsions as every day can be a roller coaster. iam so glad i have come across this forum. i have always believed in that all things happen for a reason so im looking at this experience as a time to learn (about myself)and grow.but at present i feel a bit like a boat without a rudder and which way to go so its good to know that other people have been through similar experiences.
This may sound like a silly question, but I'm a little confused about what may be frustrating the process and what may be cooperating with it. Is it same to assume as a rule of thumb that if the various symptoms become more physically painful, that the energy is running into some kind of blockage, whether in the energy body or in my actions, diet, mental attitude, etc? If the process seems to be running "in the background" with little physical pain, is this typically when we're cooperating the most?
Hard to say, Paul. Sometimes you can associate painful experiences with diet, TV, etc. Other times it seems there's just no knowing what's going on. If the same kinds of pains persist for a few days, there's usually some insight into what's going on and why, but not always.
I am a Buddhist therapist and teacher and have been working as a kundalini therapist for several years.
I find your guidelines about what to do in a kundalini crisis most helpful and thoughtful.
I wonder if it is okay if I leave a link here for people who need more indepth guidance from a professional specialising to work with kundalini syndrome. I will just try - let me know if there is a problem.
I find that most of my clients who suffer from kundalini symptoms get better within a relatively short time.
I work by giving you a tailor-made meditation that addresses directly your needs. The heart of this process is to penetrate your issues with pure love.
Welcome, Tara. I visited your link and other pages on your site and I like the approach you take. It does seem that with time and common-sense self-care approaches, things do calm down. Your emphasis on love is most helpful, I believe.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll visit us every now and then and share some of your experiences.
I like your site too! Some nice testimonials!
It would be good to hear you share some of your insights about k difficulties here, if you felt like it.
Hi Phil and Samson
thanks for the nice welcome!
There is so much to say about kundalini - I don't know where to start.
What I find important is to see the kundalini as an event of the mind rather than the body (even though it clearly has physical aspects). By working with our emotional and spiritual issues I find that in most cases physical symptoms subside.
In my work I help my clients to penetrate these issues with pure love. It is not difficult to do that but most people need guidance how to do that. The process is no secret - it;s described in my book 'The Five-Minute Miracle' (sorry, the boastful title was imposed by my publisher)
Let me know if you want to know more.
Tara, I noticed on your website under the Chakras that you seem to indicate only 5. You leave out the base and crown - I'm wondering why that is?
this is the Tibetan Buddhist system - they lump the two bottom and two top chakras together.
I can't tell you exactly why they do this but every spiritual culture seems to have their own ideas about how many chakras there are. The Taoists, for example have only three main chakras.
I think it is important to see these ideas as suggestions that we can use to experiment. After all, chakras are not material things but energies/emotions which are movable and flexible by nature.
Hope this helps.
I just had bit deeper dig into this website and noticed that I have read your book about kundalini years ago. That's a really nice discovery - I had no idea.
I thought your book was very thoughtful and well-written. It's good to have this openness across the religions and focus on spirituality rather than on dogma. Thanks for doing such a good job at that and also for this great forum!
Thanks, Tara. I also have an audio series on the chakra system that I've made available online.

We've had quite a few people dropping in on this forum through the years, some of whom have been in great distress. We also have a solid little core group who try to help visitors. It'd be great to have you join us as well, and do feel free to list your site in your signature or whenever you feel it's appropriate.
I'd be delighted about joining your core group. What will I have to do? Simply posting replies to people here on the forum? I'd be happy to do that.
thank you for your generous permission to use my url in my signature. I will make copious use of that as my poor little website needs fertilising
Tara, the core group is informal and unofficial -- just several people who check in from time to time and try to help those who have kundalini struggles.
Glad to be of assistance with your site. I don't always endorse kundalini sites, but I like your approach.
My experience with Kundalini happened in 2003, very difficult to find help in that moment. I felt like suddenly I realized I was an ET and I needed to hide my real identity, which was very difficult because Kundalini was affecting me, the people surrounding me and even the environment. I don't want to go into much details about what I went through, I think it is more important to share with you guys out there who are currently in that situation. I could mention the following as tips to feel cool:
-completely forget about meditation, yoga, spiritual books and anything that makes you go back to your spiritual practices and way of thinking. I would say remove from your environment any kind of book, the poster of your favorite guru in the wall, etc, etc... the mind is very aware of all this stuff and sometimes looking at the cover of one of your yoga books can trigger everything again. Everything is going to be fine, you are just taking a break, you will come back in the future to your nice practices but before that you need to integrate that kundalini into your daily life.
-smile, smile a lot, spend a lot of times in cultivating positive attitudes. Practice of secret smile will help, do it as much as you can.
-if you see thinking creates weird feelings then focus on physical tasks. When I was in the first moments of my kundalini journey I spend a lot of time working in gardens planting trees and any kind of plants. Some workout can be helpful as well, always with a relaxed attitude and making sure your body is relaxed, that will let your energy to run smooth without blockages... and that is another thing, blockages will produce pain, most of the time when you feel strong movement of energy is because it is going through blockages. In my case the physical work was probably the most helpful tool to feel cool.
-drink a lot of water, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables... proteins, whether you are vegetarian, vegan or meat eater, make sure you eat good proteins.
-a good massage session given by a certified therapist can help to release tension and therefore to promote a good flow of energy.
-swimming in the sea was very nice as well and helped a lot in my case.
-most of the time the problem is because your energy is not rooted to the earth, your muladhara chakra is a bit weak, or simply too much activity in your higher chakras, that is why physical activities and everything that makes your root chakra strong is advised, but as I said before forget about your spiritual practices as much as possible and only approach to information about chakras very briefly, take the notes you need and hide those books.
-Kundalini and you are the same thing, think of it as your lover, your friend, approach to it in a very positive way, talk to it if you want, try to be one with it. You are in a very unique situation and you are going to learn a lot from it.
-if you find a good reiky therapist that can assist you then cool, in my case I received sessions with black tourmalines and the impact was very good!
Enjoy your journey!!
