The safeties need to become a part of the daily life. They are a conditioning agent and bring the body into a higher frequency of expression. This frequency is what allows the Kundalini not only to be activated but to be welcomed by the individual consciousness and the body.
The locks, the breathing, the Tibetans, the forgiveness, the recapitulations, the gratefulness, the service, and all of the safeties attenuate the frequency for and towards Kundalini expression.
It isn't a one time thing. It is an everyday thing for as much time as your unique system requires it to be. Some activate almost immediately. Some take more conditioning. It isn't a race. It is most important to be patient and diligent in your daily practice. It needs to become a fixture of your life.
That way when a Shaktipat comes a person can test the ignition of their Kundalini and determine the quality of their practice.
I do not automatically activate a person just for the asking. That would be very irresponsible. They must demonstrate their willingness and determination by the practice of the safeties. As this is done the Kundalini will come anyway as the practice itself is a stand alone activation platform.
The practice of the safeties is what lays the foundation for the energy to run through the body in a balanced format. This cannot be ignored or delayed or procrastinated about and still expect results that are meaningful or beneficial. It can be quite the other way around. It can be painful. So do the practice daily. Find a rhythm that works for you and strive to achieve this state.
Most individuals within the KAS-1 group are young within the context of this energy. Young meaning that it hasn't been running through the body very long. This is a good thing and allows us all a chance to learn from each other. The people who are getting results are those who are doing the practice; making it a priority in their lives. The blessings from Kundalini are enormous and most go beyond words or what the physical and mental / emotional body's can hold or understand.
Telepathy, healing, psychokinesis, levitation, communication with spirit, ascension, bliss, "at oneness with the creator" are all nice words and concepts, but they go far beyond what a straight linear definition can offer. They are all double edged. The pursuit of these experiences can become obsessive and addictive.
So it is the wise one who treads the path of peace and loving consideration without the attachment to phenomena. These gifts come with the Kundalini anyway. Not immediately, but eventually and sometimes immediately.
What some of us have recently experienced as far as phenomena is just the tip of the iceberg. For some it is the realization that there are other forms of consciousness that can have a direct and immediate impact on our physical existence. That there is other existence! Filled with creatures and intention and experiences far and way beyond what we will typically experience in our 5 sense society. Yet actually part of us as our heritage. The true landscape of the Kundalini experience is to walk that landscape and this requires time and practice, intent and action. This leads back to the practice. - blessings chrism
