When the Kundalini infuses the physical body, as many understand, there is some very interesting phenomena that can take place. The swelling of the Kidneys, the sensations of heat and cold, the manifestations of different forms of light inside and outside of the body. The energy rushes inside and up the spine the sensations of electricity in the scalp, the 360 degree vision, the energy coming up the legs, the spontaneous movements (kriyas), the flaring nostrils, the pressure changes in the ears, the bulge between the eyebrows, the tongue tip burns, the smell of things that are not present the hearing of music that isn't being played physically, the healing of old and present illnesses or wounds, the sensation of a bowl on the top of the head, the "hearing of others thoughts", the uncontrolled joy or the extra energies, the indigestion, the increased sexual interest and aptitudes, the ability to go very deep in meditation or prayer.
These are just a few, a very few, of the "physical" manifestations many dealing directly with the five senses and some going beyond them.
It doesn't stop there. The Kundalini goes straight into the individual personality and the centers of emotion and into the person's sense of self. This is why there is such a focus on the emotional balances.
Because of the practice of The Safeties we haven't had very many people imploding and exploding emotionally in this group. This has given us a safe haven for the nurturing of the Kundalini without some of these traumatic events. It does happen however.
People will activate alone and not have any idea what is occurring and even if they do they are not aware of the occurrence of the emotional overloading. It can be difficult. So know this and be advised of how extremely important this aspect can be.
We are not practiced from a conscious standpoint of controlling our emotions here in the western societies. imho. We turn to outlets of the expression of emotions rather than using the tools of forgiveness or tolerance in many cases. We are also compelled to shove them inside and never to allow them to be viewed or vented for fear of others placing a judgment upon us at times. So we try to smother them inside of ourselves and often they come out in ways that are very damaging to us as individuals.
With Kundalini every aspect of the emotional body can become inflamed. This isn't as bad as it may sound as the brighter qualities are also expanded in conjunction with the darker qualities.
The Safeties allow us to choose a focus for the acceptance of these qualities and also the conscious choice of what emotional feeling we will give the most expression to. This is where the balancing is begun.
Without this balance a person's sense of self and of pleasure and of pain can become entangled into a mass of contradiction and confusion and pain. Doesn't always stay this way but for some it does. So let this be an FYI for you to practice The Safeties with the same interest and vigor that one would do the physical aspects of the practice. Let yourself become healthy and strong in your forgiveness, gratitude, love, tolerance, service for others, surrender and patience.
Not saying you need to be perfect all the time just try to bring these qualities into play more and more often in your daily life. This will have a direct effect upon how the Kundalini expresses through you and how you "feel" that expression and how you "feel" about the expression. - blessings - chrism
