Kundalini and 'Going where we're supposed to go'Written by Robert Morgen
In early 90's I had a spontaneous Kundalini Awakening after a near death experience, which I wrote about in a different article. Here's what happened next. After I got out of hospital after my injury, and even during my stay there, I felt that I was extremely different. At time I accounted it to just being glad to still be alive, and for over a decade I never thought anything more about it. Yet fact was that I did feel extremely different and I felt driven to pursue meditation and other avenues that I'd always had a vague interest in, but never really pursued. Now it was an imperative, so I began reading everything I could find. Unfortunately I wasn't finding much that was useful. It was about a year later that I discovered "Pathnotes of an American Ninja Master" by Dr. Glenn Morris. It was first I'd ever heard of kundalini, Reiki, Chi Kung and Therapeutic Touch. Within a few days I discovered a Chi Kung class near where I lived in Ft. Lauderdale and was able to barter some dreamcatchers and other odds and ends for some classes. My teacher there was also a Reiki Master, so he introduced me to Reiki also. Over next decade I floundered around (or so I thought) and worked a wide variety of jobs and studied a strange variety of classes in school, as well as spent a large amount of time out in mountains or hiding out in desert and just communing and doing various types of energy work. A couple of years ago while living up in Glenwood Springs, CO I was again drawn to get deeper into my energy work, and entered a period of intense yoga, Reiki, chi kung and meditation. One night while meditating I had a vision of a lotus flower, but vision included flower, stem and roots. The meaning was instantly obvious and I easily connected my energy and felt a rush up my spine and out through top of my head. Over next few months I went through a period that I can only describe as a karmic clean-out. Any unresolved issue that I didn't properly deal with would keep popping up over and over until I dealt with it calmly and from my center. I had my drivers license revoked twice (during a period when I was just being hired by UPS, blew engines on 3 vehicles and had a tortured series of bureaucratic battles. I had strange energy surges as my body re-wired itself and had energy releases that sent me to massage therapists and other Reiki practitioners to have cleaned out. Some of this still happens, and probably always will. I also went through a period of balancing my chakras, and I can look back at my life in various periods and see what chakra I was in. After a few months I started trying to get away from it all. I stopped doing my yoga and meditation and entered a period that I can only describe as a mental hell. I later learned that even then I was balancing out my light and dark sides (but that's a new posting).
Kundalini lessons - MoneyWritten by Robert Morgen
I've been going through and interesting growth period lately that I thought I'd share, as some of lessons were pretty profound (at least for me).
I've written before about my awakening and joys and tribulations since, and I've also mentioned that it's an ongoing process which, as far as I can tell, doesn't really end til you shuffle off this mortal coil. Then you get to come back and start over. :)
The last couple of years or so have been a really interesting period, partly through guidance and help from both Dr. Glenn Morris and Susan Carlson, and it's interesting how much progress I've made and how far I still have to go.
I've recently come to an interesting new period in my life, thanks mostly to my other half, Anya. Living with her (and my step-son Jake) has opened up new areas and forced me to deal with things that I was always able to avoid before. When you're a modern day gypsy and bouncing around in an old RV it's really easy to have a casual attitude about living in our society, but settling down really brings on new challenges. Most of what I'm learning now is probably old hat to those of you who've led stable, settled down lives, but it's a hell of an adventure for me, even at my age.
The primary things that I'm dealing with lately are financial. I've always been able to make money, but in last few months I've come to realize that I've always had bad attitudes about it, and I see same attitudes reflected over and over from people around me. It was a big shock for me to realize that much of my attitudes were actually limiting me. It was shocking because most of what I do is about rising above limitations and creating my own realities, then realizing how badly I was doing in this other area.
Susan Carlson mentioned to me several times last year that I could learn a lot from Stuart Wilde's books, and I finally got around to reading "The Secret to Money is Having Some" and I have to admit that she was exactly right! Thanks Susan! :)
I followed that up with "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" (actually I'm deep into series and spending a lot of time on his website) and what I learned there was just as shocking, so in hopes that some of you learn easier than I do I'll pass on some new revelations (apparently only new to me, but what hell).
