Most of us will experience at least one frustrating day in our lifetime. Sometimes we get muddled and talk to ourselves, and sometimes blow up in a fury. Having a foggy brain happens when energy builds up. The need for release is real.
Displaying odd behaviors or dramatic emotions can cause conflict in our relationships. Our sudden desire for solitude can raise questions to those close to us. Their concern for our well being is appreciated but easily misunderstood.
Psychosis is a condition that affects the way our brain processes information. This is also true for a spiritual or kundalini awakening. This makes sense because, during these, we go through a rebirth process.
Normally, we conform to the elements of our childhood conditioning. We live in a framework of social history and are expected to identify with it. Having a spiritual crisis leads to profound spiritual change, but also a significant psychological change. We alter our whole life’s perception.
A spiritual awakening is difficult and impossible for others to understand. We question our reality and ponder the meaning of life. Confronted with life lessons we release trapped emotions. This helps to facilitate our rebirth but also changes the way we think and feel.
The confusion of having access to expanded psychological material can interfere with normal daily functions. Reconfiguring our thought process adds further confusion. This intense state of fear can manifest bizarre behaviors:
- unusual thoughts
- sensory changes
- psychic gifts
- communication with spirit guides
- dark night of the soul
- past life experiences
- increased synchronicity
Healing opportunities will be compromised with unnecessary psychiatric treatment. Personal development can’t be achieved with the lack of acknowledging spiritual growth. Having a positive context during this transition supports achieving higher consciousness.
A spiritual awakening isn’t a one-time event, it’s an ongoing process highly unique to each individual. Although it’s confusing and heavy, it’s also an extremely powerful experience that shapes us in amazing ways.
“When you succeed in awakening the kundalini, so that it starts to move out of its mere potentiality, you necessarily start a world which is totally different than our world. It is a world of eternity.”Dr. Carl Jung, 1975
At the center of the base of our spinal column, we have a dormant life force energy. This additional chakra to the commonly known seven chakras holds the power to transform the body on a cellular level. This process marks a journey to enlightenment.
Awakening this powerful energy clears blockages in each chakra as it travels up the spine. The central nervous system throws off stress which causes pain. As the stuck energies are removed, repressed situations surface resulting in physical and psychological changes:
- mood swings
- involuntary chanting
- involuntary movements
- increased libido
The kundalini experience allows us to go beyond the limitations of the mind. A kundalini awakening includes parapsychological symptoms:
- perceptions of lights/geometric shapes
- seeing entities
- visions of other lifetimes
- hearing beyond normal auditory abilities
- healing abilities
A kundalini awakening results in a dynamic mind transformation. With this alchemic phenomenon we achieve:
- expanded mental awareness
- expanded knowledge
- deep peace
- inner essence
- increased vitality
The trigger for a kundalini rising isn’t always on purpose. Awakening the kundalini energy without the direction of an experienced guru is highly dangerous and ill-advised.
Important to Differentiate
We recognize psychosis as a mental disorder causing one to lose contact with reality. Throughout history, certain cultures practice mystical and altered states that are beneficial, but also fall in the category of pathological.
Normal states of waking consciousness are defined in western medicine with standard qualities. When we transcend into awakening we receive information from other dimensions of existence and thus, live in two realities.
While psychosis and the spiritual transformation process are incredibly similar, spiritual experiences are essential to the psyche rather than destructive psychopathology. The symptoms are simply not understood in relation to the outcome.
