Kundalini Awakening: The After-Effects

An awakening is one side of the coin, the happenings *after* the awakening are the often overlooked and much more important side of the coin, if not a totally new coin altogether.

Kundalini is not a show. And it´s not to be taken lightly. It´s not a drug-like, flashy, fancy experience to tell your friends about and feel like a better, different or more special human being. It´s not the new thing to do. It´s not about the physical sensations, the possible hallucinations, the eventually perceived state of euphoria or the event itself. It´s not about constantly pushing the energy up in the higher chakras so that an almost otherwordly mental state appears, which helps to escape daily life.

Kundalini is the possible expansion of consciousness, if it is understood as something highly more intelligent than our own mind and therefore needs space and time to unfold in its own way. The awakening is simply a seed that has been planted throus practice or by the grace of God, without previous knowledge or desire for an awakening. It´s an experience. Not more not less. A very strong one, but still – an experience. And as all the yoga scriptures highly underline: Don´t get attached to any experience on the way to enlightenment. There might be many, all different in their own way and different in effect on each person. Don´t get attached to new found skills, perceptions or higher levels of energy. Don´t give it to the mind.

After-Effects of an Awakening

What is often overlooked after the actual awakening is the importance of giving the energy space to unfold in it´s own way, so that it truly can rise. Kundalini energy is a very strong energy that has it´s own way of working through the chakras, one at a time, and then ascending towards the higher chakras and higher states of consciousness. This can then bring about amplified energy and a deeper understanding of the meaning of life and its everyday lessons. It´s a cleansing process that requires a lot of changes, a lot of letting go and a lot of patience.

Kundalini is traditionally depicted as a snake. The awakening simply meets a meeting with the snake. And if we fully give in to the process, it means we are becoming the snake, gradually shedding old skin, old skin, old skin. A rhythm, a transformation, a constant movement, a dance with the divine.

As the energy starts to rise the energetic vibration of our energy body is raised dramatically, as in no other occasion in energy work, which means that outside circumstances that are not in resonance with this new vibration anymore inevitably have to change, either actively or involuntarily. If this process is blocked the energy might get very ‘loud’ in us. There will be changes in the brain too, as the rational left side of the brain gets shut down for a certain period of time and the creative and intuitive right side of the brain gets highly activated. If the ego is strongly in place, this is a very uncomfortable process as control and planning is simply not possible in that period. There might be other side effects, of not being able to keep the time or perform certain tasks that were easy before (e.g. calculating). These processes don´t last forever, but take the time they need in order to shift the energy in the brain and upgrade the consciousness to a new level. Especially the activation of the right side of the brain, which we usually ignore in our Western world, takes time so that divine consciousness can flow through and guide us into becoming an truly activated being.

The Divine Feminine: Uncovering the Myth

The Divine Feminine is an aspect of ourselves that is calling for recognition, re-integration and resurrection. It´s the intuitive, creative and divine part of ourselves that in an patriarchally shaped society has been pushed aside, ignored and limited in her expression for centuries. It´s part of our nature, which we most feel when we are in nature, and less when we are in the cities, where the mind, logic and noise are paramount. But what exactly is the Divine Feminine?

When I speak about the Divine Feminine, I´m not only referring to a concept of being more feminine, soft, intuitive and nurturing, but also to the Divine guidance as part of the Divine Feminine. It´s about the art of allowing, receiving and being in flow. There is literally a Divine Spirit awakening all around the globe, reminding men and women alike to soften, to listen within, to follow the flow and to let go of the struggle. To be human after all, but especially to human to ourselves. Accepting, loving and compassionate. Letting things be as they are and letting ourselves be as we are.

What is the Divine Feminine?

Most of the time people wonder: What does that exactly mean? Being as I am? Am I not doing that?

Well, most of the time not. Because being as you are is rather an un-doing than a doing. It´s a being not this not that, stopping to do this and that, to be accepted. Simply being. Accepting the moment, with its pain, its hurt, its limitation, but also its joy, exhilaration and grandeur. Accepting faults and shadows in oneself and then compassionately accepting them in others. Being in flow with everything that is without trying to control it, to change it, to fix it or to modify it. Simply being. Which does not mean, doing nothing. But rather it means being so connected to our inner world that the doing happens spontaneously, intuitively, joyfully.

What She is not

It´s a reminder of what enlightenment is: Being oneself, without judgement, without criticism, without hatred. It´s a reminder of letting go of fear, anxiety, shame, guilt, playing small, jealousy, people pleasing and not stepping into your greatness. It is also a reminder of not being pushy, manipulative through words, actions and thoughts and creating distractions for oneself and others through hyper-consumerism and the like. It´s a reminder of the magic that happens on the other side of all plans, logic and reason, and the greatness of the heart as an ocean of abundance. It´s a reminder of letting go and of simplicity. It´s a reminder of being YOU. You as in the Universe. You as the small inner child. You as the vulnerable courageous person that you are. You as the wildest dreams you have. You with all the flaws and imperfections, which make you just perfect. A perfect human BEing.

Doing the Work

The Divine Feminine, for the ones who hear the call, brings up a lot. A lot of light, a lot of ancestral remembering, a lot of shadows – individual and collectively, a lot of activations and a lot of indescribable occurrences. A lot of guidance, but for that we need to be open to hear the call.
