  1. @ItsNick What you're describing sounds like Kundalini/Shakti Kriyas (automatic spontaneous movements/happenings). I recommend (if that is the case) that you let it play out; don't try to fight it. The more you do, the more painful & difficult things might get for you. Let Kundalini do her thing through your being; she knows you & the best path(s) for your evolution to undergo because she is You/God. Let go; surrender to Your-Self.
  2. That's just part of it. Memories and mental-emotional patterns arising consciously and/or sub-consciously etc. are one thing, but since the whole system basically gets an upgrade, there will probably be times when that now due to active Kundalini- "system under re-construction/calibration" will not function well anymore for some time (and/or longer periods). One might get more sensitive overall to the point where minuscule things are very bothering, draining and overwhelming. Periods of deep darkness might occur, some refer to it as "the dark night of the soul". The body might feel weak, the mind slow and foggy, rampant thoughts and heavy emotional responses. It might be that good rejuvenation, especially proper sleep is a rare thing. Basically, one might be brought down into pits of despair. I recommend, if you intent to activate the Kundalini, to do more research on this subject from different sources so that you're more prepared for things that might be coming. I don't know, this is a tad tricky to answer IMO. On one hand, this type of Kundalini-Yoga might be dangerous- even an incomplete yogic-system, giving you deep- energetic/mystical experiences which might be pleasant, exciting, maybe even useful. Yet in the long run, I fear it has the potential to backfire and strain/distort the energetic-system of an individual. But, even if it should backfire, maybe new roads will be opened/revealed to you that lead somewhere great due to its backfiring. If Kundalini activation is your main focus, receiving Shaktipat might be another option.
  3. Awakening the Kundalini was an intuitive process, and the process afterward still is. I didn't really have a strict intention to awaken the Kundalini energy, although I used some guided meditations aimed at Kundalini awakening a few times. I used to do concentrative meditation for around 2 years or so and in-between other tools now & then such as breathwork, different guided meditations, psychedelics, contemplation/Self-Inquiry, and so on. Eventually, the awakening occurred. I recall during a half-asleep/awake state, energy making its way through my system. But, even before that, there were some energetic/mystical experiences that had occurred. Others report more vividly- intense Kundalini awakening experiences, this varies again from person to person. After this... Kundalini is keen on purging patterns, traumas, etc.- energies that aren't aligned with samadhi/liberation- the highest good/potential of a being. This means that the ego-structure will burn and a lot of deep-rooted issues, heavy thoughts and hefty emotions (amongst other things) might come to the surface to be transmuted/healed, integrated and let go. This can cause pain on several levels, even physical symptoms such as stinging back-pain that might feel like a pressing- energetic blockage. It can be really hard to concentrate, to function overall since the (nervous)-system gets re-calibrated. Fatigue, mind-fog, racing thoughts and emotions, impulsive/addicting behavior, digestion issues, feverish symptoms, anxiety/depression/insomnia, fear, and so on aren't a seldom thing on such a journey. Old energies must go, and "more divine" energies will be integrated which will result in a deepening of consciousness. A typical "spiritual practice session" would often contain Kriyas (automatic spontaneous movements) to do the work. Certain Kriyas are taught in different Kundalini Yoga classes and in other types of Yoga, but with active Kundalini Kriyas are something that you don't do with conscious effort; Kundalini- Kriyas do you. Kundalini is basically the "Higher-Self" which will lead itself back home. This can take shape in some tough love. Surrendering to what occurs is much advised since Kundalini ultimately is in control. This though can be really tough for many in some way or another. ---- I don't want to paint the picture that Kundalini awakening and/or the process afterward MUST be really tough or even horrifying. For some, it's not harsh. Kundalini is a gift by & from God to God. I just find it important to not just have eyes fixated on the treasure, but also shine light onto the path that leads one to it.
  4. Yes. I speak from personal & direct experience. Kundalini/Shakti is doing her thing "within me" and it can be quite the ride... once she's active there's no going back.
  5. If you're trying to awaken the Kundalini I'd like to point out that the process afterward can get quite challenging for many. It's advisable to do research and look at both sides & the middle of this process when it comes to Kundalini stuff. There are many unpleasantries that can occur when Kundalini/Shakti is doing her thing (often categorized as "Kundalini Syndrome"). Ultimately, it's for your personal growth and samadhi/liberation, but nevertheless it can get hairy. I haven't looked into the video so I can't say much about that, but below is something that I wrote/posted before that might apply here too. ---- Some warn that the most commonly/popular practiced Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan isn't ideal because it is an incomplete yogic system which, besides experiencing "deeper states/energetic stuff", can backfire and cause harm to the practitioner. This isn't to say that Kundalini Yoga as taught by Bhajan isn't useful or beneficial, yet it's said to have its pitfalls & blindspots. When doing energy-work, proper integration & grounding is highly recommended & being mindful of not rigidly forcing & overstimulating the energetic/bodily-system. Apparently, the original practice of Kundalini Yoga is summed up in this picture:

  7. I agree with what Dumuzzi wrote & would like to highlight this below. If you're trying to forcefully induce a kundalini awakening and/or just generally force things within that realm of "spirituality", this might backfire quite a bit to the point where one might wish to never have had this type of awakening. Being grounded, having a great supportive circle, etc. makes this process easier.
  8. I'm typed INFJ Enneagram results usually also provide an interesting touch.
  9. It might be quite beneficial if done properly/correctly. I watched a documentary- type of video about Qi Gong, where there were monks who apparently didn't eat for months and even years. I couldn't find it, or I would've posted it here. They work themselves up to this point (for a long time) and don't jump right into not eating (something which seemingly many do, and fail, unsurprisingly). I don't know about Ray Maor, if it's a video that was posted here, then I haven't watched it. If you're advanced in meditation, yoga or similar, you might even gain the ability to control your physical flesh suit/body to a certain degree. Such as pulse, heartbeat etc.
  10. Breatharianism might be a real thing. I theorize that you need to be at/beyond a specific stage of spiritual development/being able to manipulate prana/energy to your advantage, to such a degree where you can live off of it (at least for quite a while). If "normal" people go and try this, they'll fail and it can have catastrophic consequences.
  11. Not sure what your core issue(s) might be, that are causing this. I can only speak from my experience here, maybe it's something that can be of use. When I was in a psychiatric clinic, one day I simply got fever-like symptoms (feeling hot, sweating easily, upset stomach, diarrhea and so on, similar to hyperthyroid symptoms.) I thought that they would go away, but they just calmed down a bit once and then, yet overall bloating and diarrhea, sweating easily was still there, even the urge to vomit most of the day (although this might be because of the aftereffects caused by medication). Now, I'm skipping a few parts here of the story... so... eventually, I got tired of this sh*t, and ate only meat for two weeks (the body had to get used to it, and this process wasn't so pleasant). My stool was fine and the stomach wasn't bloated anymore, my urge to vomit went away (I think, it might've been gone before, can't remember this so well). Then, I introduced other foods again into my diet, such as eggs, salad and brown rice (I react to white rice). A low-fodmap/low-carb diet worked well for me. If I eat sweets, certain fruits (fructose might be a trigger) and even honey, I seem to react negatively. Carbs are not so ideal for me, yet I eat them with some care which seems to work fine (usually). In addition, I take probiotics that do help. Stress, anxiety or similar also trigger my colon issues.
  12. Thank you for sharing this one! It's been a long time since I listened to Glitch Mob... and the visuals are neat as representation (spirtual eye/kutastha).
  13. @Smurfinstein That's one expensive lesson... I agree with what you say. My plan on Monday is to stick to my values, but being careful of what comes out of my mouth, not letting them single me out. Afterall, I wasn't the one who piled up the debt.
