This is a subject I would like to cover because this is likely to occur. Kundalini awakens and "all of a sudden" your perceptual universe has quadrupled. This can be quite frightening.
If you go into the legends and mythologies of this and other civilizations you can see a large collection of life forms that are still available for experience on the astral. Energy doesn't go away. It changes form or is not affected by temporal dynamics.
If for thousands of years a civilization worshipped and sacrificed life to a specific deity then that civilization goes away it doesn't mean the deity does. This is like a tulku once again an energetic artifice of focused concentration from many minds and over much time. These creations can last a long, long time.
Get a copy of Bullfinch's mythology and read up on that a bit as these beings and creatures are in the void. They occupy a specific space and frequency and can be sought but do not go there with out a reason and without knowing what you are doing. When you see them, they can see you.
When the Kundalini does come it is best to be in a frame of mind that is free of fear. Fear has a specific frequency and like a shark smelling blood this fear frequency will attract those that wish to feed on it. Not good, not bad, just the consuming of energy.
If you are a person who cannot stop fearing or is in a depressed state of mind, don't activate the Kundalini until you can clear yourself of these issues because the Kundalini will often just expand them. You need to take the responsibility of healing yourself first. Then the Kundalini can be accessed. Make the time to do this. It is well worth it.
The opening to the astral can be very unnerving and there are experiences you do not need to have. So practice the safeties until they are second nature to you. Go to work on them and make them a solid foundation in your life there are no shortcuts around this.
I had horrible terrible experiences that lasted for years. Some do not survive these experiences because they are extremely out of balance with regards to their emotions and psychological foundations. I didn't have the safeties, you do - use them.
I know some of you have spiritual guidance from you know not where but they tell you they are your guide and you believe them because they are in your head or projecting there or whatever and they may make you feel good. This is fine. I would however implore you to think for yourself with many of the decisions that will come your way. This is about your awakening and your Kundalini not those who are without a body.
I say this because some levels of the astral realm are predatory. Not good, not bad, just predatory. Intelligently so. Please remember this isn't a New Age fluffy "floating hearts" tea party. It is an expanded reality and a narrow path to walk while you are still in the limited flesh body.
Kundalini is a wonderful event but please make sure your frame of mind is of a multi layered love based focus as this can determine your level of interaction with other consciousness. - blessings - chrism
