Judith Watts: Kundalini Energy in 21st Century Terms>
Posted by Steve Beckow
Longtime reader Judith Watts looks back on her life as a lightworker.
As the Annual Kundalini Conference in Flesherton, Ontario (ICR – Institute of Consciousness Research) approaches in a few days, I have been sending out information encouraging attendance. Many folks, to be honest, have not heard the word.
Those involved in energy medicine practices such as the BodyTalk System are familiar with the term as it is essential in understanding that ultimate healthcare and healing was always a basic component of the bodymind. You cut your finger, your body goes into action and begins to heal itself.
That kind of ‘magic’ was born in each of us. It is time for it to really show itself now as so many are experiencing physical, emotional and mental changes affecting everyday lives. It is stress-inspired and in my belief this was precisely the sort of “hurry up” mechanism that was needed in order for the Kundalini energy to fully bloom.
The individuals who were noted for their genius, remarkable insights and spiritual advancement through human history were the inspirational roses that suddenly appeared as cultural landmarks far and wide. Something about the mysterious human manifestation of a higher energy source has been discussed, written and wondered about for centuries – as far back as Socrates.
After my own Kundalini awakening in 1980, after years of shoving it to the back burner because it came packaged in a misdiagnosis of bi-polar illness, I got my life somewhat into a manageable framework. (1) So much had changed and yet I was determined to hold onto the old ideas and customs which included the stigma of mental illness.
That certainly kept me feeling crazy and untouchable and silent about what I had experienced. So many things I had never shared with another soul kept me positive and yet forewarned. I recently have felt the changes in the air, as frequent and dramatic as our extraordinary weather patterns.
And, beginning in 1990, I’ve been reading and integrating the truth as it is starting to become more available and the universe somehow has so often put me in direct line with contacts who were making a difference in these areas. All these synchronous events have gradually made me braver; I am owning my power and confidence.
After years of “spiritual emergencies”, hospitalizations and travels to various destinations, the need for this incredible journey is clearer to me now. Facts I’ve come to learn and appreciate about Kundalini are being assembled in the book I’ve been writing: The Pandora Process: It’s About Love.
Kundalini is commonly known as the evolutionary energy leading to cosmic consciousness for humanity. Various sources suggest the shifting or awakening in the world we are currently experiencing seems like the manifestation of this in an ever increasing number of us.
Most religious teachings speak of visions and light and changes in physical appearance at some future moment. Many people today still can’t believe their luck! They accept the prediction – as long as it is tied into a happening at least a hundred years down the pike!
It is more comfortable to believe that hope, which was the last element left in the Pandora Box according to the Greek myth, is always for the future. Why end suffering, pain and fear we have all come to understand as part of our human condition.
If past generations could withstand the heartache, muster up courage and continue into the fray, then who are we to believe we shouldn’t continue the traditions? Besides, what would the end of misery leave us to complain about?
It seems clear to me that as a human family we haven’t been taught to appreciate our own greatness. Would it be arrogant or egotistical to suggest we are truly the “change in the world we’ve been waiting for”. I don’t see why not. I never used to feel that way…until I started to learn to love and accept myself.
Undoubtedly as a result of the Kundalini energy turning me upside down and giving me a good shake more than a few times.
Using my always positive personal metaphor, in the Pandora Process when the forbidden Box opens these days it is impossible to shut it down and forget what exists inside. Actually is has always been love. And yet love doesn’t pay the armies or support the crucial segments of any society that hold power and vengeance. In today’s media coverage the compulsive attention to international weather and extremists incidents will soon bring the greater energy field on the planet into synchronous movement.
We are ALL ONE; we are a Global Village. Air travel and Twitter and Skype and texting and emails and all that technology, literally in our own two hands, manifests a deep, soul level human entanglement.
When I was teaching English and administering the college campus in Iran during the summer of 2001, television and media reception from other sources were forbidden in Tehran. Watch the local news…that’s all you needed to know. North Korea undoubtedly still maintains that vigilant watch over global information.
Gradually, as we know, cell phones appear to be growing as third thumbs on hands of all colours. Perhaps a daily reminder for the actual awakening of the ‘third eye’? This tiny pineal gland in the brain expands mind functions and gifts us with intuitive and other sentient abilities. As the Kundalini energy links the body chakras, the higher level unites with the cosmic source.
Indigo, Rainbow and Crystal children, babies born since the 1970′s, are already functioning at a higher level of universal consciousness. Consequently, they don’t quite ‘fit in’ with standard cultural, gender, religious and educational motifs we’ve fought countless wars to hold onto. I think they may have something there…. Ya think!!
I see Canada as having a global reputation for solid scientific research in many fields and perhaps the freedom to continue to pursue the truth in biophysics, quantum theory, non-invasive medical procedures, neurophysics and psychology. Notwithstanding “big pharma” may often interfere with NRC grants; no evidence, just wondering?
Without conjecture, however, integration of body, mind and spirit, Far Eastern cultural wisdom for thousands of years, is finally accepted in Western consciousness. Some examples? Yoga, meditation, acupuncture, reiki, Tai Chi, BodyTalk and other natural wellness techniques were either unknown or bullied until the last decade or so.
In the same evolutionary adjustment in consciousness way, many reputable, contemporary voices discuss Kundalini – the life force energy – under pseudonyms: higher power, innate wisdom, higher self, God Self, Chi energy, source field, enlightenment, ascension…a New Earth…just to name a few.
The humanitarian shift perspective is endless as each cell and organism in the human body is affected by the changes that manifest once the Kundalini energy is awakened. I like to think of what is happening inside each of us living on the planet as a third dimensional seeding that is at last coming into fifth dimensional flower.
When we are away and unaware for only a few days and come home, startled to see the radiance and strength of our spring garden blooms, we experience just a small glimpse into the changes in store as the life force energy manifests.
Enjoy the many aspects of the Kundalini experience you are having now. The rough spots have been softened because disclosure and transparency make all things viable. You will only feel lighter and happier and totally supported in this next leg of the journey. What lies ahead is not just meant for your children’s children. It’s all been intended for the loving, energetic child in you….and you…and you….
