There are many people who have awakened their kundalini. Not only saints and sadhus, but poets, painters, warriors, writers, anyone can awaken
their kundalini. With the awakening of kundalini, not only visions of God take place, there is dawning of creative intelligence and an awakening of
supramental faculties. By activating kundalini you may become anything in life.
The energy of kundalini is one energy, but it expresses itself differently through the individual psychic centers or chakras -first in gross instinctive ways
and then in progressively more subtle ways. Refining of the expression of this energy at higher and more subtle levels of vibration represents the ascent
of human consciousness to its highest possibilities.
Kundalini is the creative energy; it is the energy of self-expression. Just as in reproduction a new life is created, in the same way, someone like Einstein
uses that same energy in a different, more subtle realm, to create a theory like relativity. It is the same energy that is expressed when someone
composes or plays beautiful music. It is the same energy which is expressed in all parts of life, whether it is building up a business, fulfilling the family
duties or reaching whatever goal you aspire for. These are all expressions of the same creative energy.
Everybody, whether householder or sannyasin, must remember that awakening of kundalini is the prime purpose of human incarnation. All the pleasures
of sensual life which we are enjoying now are intended only to enhance the awakening of kundalini amidst the adverse circumstances of man's life.
A process of metamorphosis
With the awakening of kundalini, a transformation takes place in life. It has little to do with one's moral, religious or ethical life. It has more to do with
the quality of our experiences and perceptions. When kundalini wakes up your mind changes and your priorities and attachments also change. All your
karmas undergo a process of integration. It is very simple to understand. When you were a child you loved toys, but why don't you love them now?
Because your mind has changed and consequently, your attachments have also changed. So, with the awakening of kundalini, a metamorphosis takes
place. There is even the possibility of restructuring the entire physical body.
When kundalini awakens, the physical body actually undergoes many changes. Generally they are positive, but if your guru is not cautious, they can be
negative also. When the shakti wakes up, the cells in the body are completely charged and a process of rejuvenation also starts. The voice changes, the
smell of the body changes and the hormonal secretions also change. In fact, the transformation of cells in the body and brain takes place at a much
higher rate than normal. These are just a few observations. However, scientific researchers are still taking their first steps into this field.
