In this article, I will talk about the relationship between the spiritual concept ”kundalini”, the ”kundalini awakening” as well as the relationship between this spiritual state of mind and the physical concept of back pain.
Kundalini is an energy of sorts that is located at the base of your spine, it is something conscious and evolutionary – meaning that it’s not like chakra or our mind, it’s something continuously evolving.
Kundalini is said to be the ”next step” in a humans being that takes the form of a luminous physical and spiritual experience. This is through what is called ”the kundalini awakening” and will be discussed shortly.
Kundalini is said to be something that continuously exists in our body, almost like a boiling egg that is waiting to be cracked. It can be as drastic as describing it as an ”untapped resource of divinity” that we all have, just waiting to be experienced and utilized. It can be awakened through spiritual practices, breathing exercises, near-death experiences, accidents, studying with an awakened teacher or just starting meditation. For some, it even happens unknowingly and the effect varies from person to person, depending on the ”pre-awakening” state.
Kundalini is designed for humanity’s next step toward a luminous physical and spiritual expression. It is an untapped resource of divinity within us all that is waiting to be awakened and experienced. Never has the time been so right and crucial for a change of this magnitude to be explored and initiated.
The most common effect of the awakening that takes a physical appearance is that the spine will feel as it wants to be ”straighter”. This is because of the powerful energy that starts to build at the base of the spine and increases the pressure and finally gives in, much like an orgasm.
The energy will then cause the back to arch backward and the head is filled with the burst of energy that traveled up through the spine. After this, the sensation will decline and the energy will be spread out through your body as a blanket is placed around you. (This is much like what Dr. Sarno discusses in his book about healing back pain, found as my top pick in My 5 best books in dealing with back pain). An internal hurricane of joy and movement will undoubtedlyappear in your life. The top of the head at the fontanel can become an organ of vision, often referred to as ”the third eye”.
It’s not without its flaws though, as, like everything coming in a mass of abundance, nature needs its way to correct any unbalance in the universe. As Kundalini energy moves through the body various issues, even pain can arise in chakra areas. Usually, a person who has activated kundalini has not prepared themselves for the overwhelming occurrence. This is why so many people invested in kundalini practices kundalini yoga.
Central to the practice of Kundalini Yoga is the idea that in order to have a lot of energy you have to allow the body to be in a relaxed state so that the flow of energy does not get stuck or blocked.
This is done through physical cleansing practices, strict diet requirements, gradually adding more advanced breathing practices, sitting in specific yogic styles. Although this seems a bit advanced, only about 1% of the people experiencing the awakening will actually make for these preparations. So this article speaks for the rest of the 99% of people, wondering what the hell is going on.
The thing that happens is that the body suddenly becomes ”present”, and since the mind works faster than the body, the body needs time to catch up. Some things might need to be released, some things might be re-experienced in order for them to completely go away.
It’s a gradual process as the subtle body energies, physical body, and psyche adapt to this new energy flow. So, if someone experiencing a sudden and newfound pain in conjunction with this experience, one must be patient in order to slowly and peacefully address old psychological issues and to adapt their old lifestyle and body to the new patterns the kundalini energy is calling for.
So when there is any kind of back pain in the body that doctors find no reason for or heat arising or weird blockages where energy seems to be blocked, this is because some clearing is needed since it was not done before the awakening. This feeling can be the physical form often described as everything a person has wanted to have said pressing in your back. This is undoubtedly something in need to be healed in a controlled and slow phase. (I discuss this in my article on How to get an accurate back pain diagnosis).
So, if your energy seems blocked and keeps returning, leaving a feeling of discomfort, over and over, it is generally caused by previous physical or emotional experiences, in this life, or possibly in a previous life.
In conclusion, when a back is hurting or when a neck feels stiff, it is most likely because the awakening is correcting the way you have held your body’s posture in relation to your energy flow wrong for years, and this is something not to be worried about, The energy doesn’t care about your pain, the energy cares about your energy flow and that is it. There is no way to control it, but the pain is undoubtedly connected with your lack of knowledge of what is causing it.
