In ancient India and Tibet, Egypt, China and Arabia there were monasteries and hermitages set aside to train the Kundalini intended on the necessary steps involved in maintaining balance inside a Kundalini activation/Awakening.
These students would go through the needed steps lead by those who had walked the path before them. They developed stages and gradients of information these students would when they were ready as deemed by their teachers, put into practice.
They rarely left the school in many traditions. The students were "forced" to meditate and pray and perform service. They were "forced" to eat only certain foods, meditate in certain ways and perform the tasks given to them by their Masters (teachers). They were schooled in sometimes thousands of years old traditions of metaphysical knowledge. In this case "forced" is a good thing.
Not so here, now.
In the contemporary West there are many, many distractions that can confuse and mislead those who come into this experience. There is a medical community that treats this condition with the heaviest of drugs. There are micro waves and radio waves and television waves. Long waves and short waves and all manner of frequency generation. There is audible noise. There is visual noise. Foods that are mal- nutritious and water that has been altered by poisonous gases. Air that has been altered by poisonous gases, etc.
It is now a very different world for the Kundalini to rise and yet she does rise.
All this to say that when dealing with strong emotional Kundalini induced phenomena one needs to be very carefully focused on what is occurring and how to organize, as best as possible, the ego response when the phenomena threatens to overwhelm.
If you experience the loss of a loved one it can be very hard on the newly Kundalini Awakened. A person can go into severe emotional trauma. But take a step back from the intensity of the experience as best you can and internally detach and allow the grieving process to occur without becoming so attached to it that the grief begins to do you instead of you doing it, though sometimes this will occur. If you cannot find balance simply allow this to happen.
The old ways would only allow a certain degree of time for grief then "It's a new day!" The Tibetans would basically get the time to do the "Prayer for the dead" and then it was business as usual as their knowledge of the afterlife allowed them to know some things for certain.With Kundalini do your best to not become overwhelmed. Remember the amplification that will occur. Stay in touch. Let us know what is happening with you. - blessings - chrism
