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).
