Kundalini the serpent hiccupped and sent me to hospital. Yes it is no joke, two years ago I was experimenting with pelvic muscle exercises combined with deep breathing and specific breathing forms all while being in a particular pose with the rest of the body. Unbeknown to me I awakened or moved the Kundalini.
Initially it had some wonderful effects. I had lots of energy, stood really tall and straight. I had an extremely good sense of balance. My sense of taste altered, being a coffee addict I gave it up at that moment. My body went through an auto cleansing; the urine darkened to dark clear orange and seemed to be very heavy did not seem to dilute in the bowl it just sank to the bottom. In my stool, which is normally soft and light brown, near black like hard and dry feces where expelled. My body became electrified; plants, trees other fellow humans all had an effect on me as I could feel them in my surrounding. Just imagine walking past a plant and your fingers start tingling and as you near your hand to the plant this tingling under the skin became more intense and what felt like ants started running up inside your arm (energy flowing).
I felt alive, wow what a feeling, more exercises as described in the opening paragraph were called for.
I had a good sense of balance, also my body wanted symmetry, one hand forward the other went backwards. Raise the left arm sideways the right arm would lift automatically. This is fun, soaping up in the shower became a sexy experience as both hands had to work in symmetry; I was hugging and cuddling myself!
All good things soon come to an end, back at work and two hours into the morning I became very tense, I could not relax, symmetrical movements are not common in office work, I broke out in a cold sweat. Further something was pushing me in the back and I had this great urge to go home. I announced to my bosses that I would not be joining them on a planned on a business trip that afternoon and as I am not feeling well want to go home and lie down. They in turn, just took one look at me, bundled me into a motorcar and sent me to hospital.
At hospital I had extremely high blood pressure and I was admitted immediately. Now what to tell the doctors, all I could tell them I seem to have a coordination problem and the need for symmetry or balance. To all the stress related questions the doctors asked I could only answer “does not apply”. Then my medical history was examined, and this is the sad part of the medic profession, a diagnosis was immediately reached. About 6 years ago I had a bit of a breakdown, overworked, anxieties etc and at that time a wrong diagnosis of “Bipolar disease” was given. Once you are labeled you are labeled for life, so I was diagnosed again Bipolar. A lot of bull, and I was entrusted to a psychiatrist. I refused all his medication, just listened to my body and managed to distress myself.
The nights were terrible, luckily I had a private room, I was moved by some forces, contorted, spun around in bed, shaken around like in a Aneros Super-O, but really no pleasure, had the strongest erection ever experienced - if somebody observed me they would have diagnosed “possessed by the devil”. Another sympton was that I had very sticky sweat in my palms and soles, never seen something like that before, the surface tension of the sweat would form it into little balls and one could pull long threads.
Movement was the key to de stressing my self, by allowing my body to unwind with movement and yoga like stretches I could distress myself without medication. I was discharged five days later, but I did not trust to drive myself for another month or so, the slightest acceleration felt like 10g in a fighter plane and occasionally I would twitch, or cramp up.
The only good the psychiatrist did after observing my urge to stretch, was to refer me to a yoga and relaxation teacher. She managed to ground me, I liked that new feeling of sensing plants. Fruit and vegetables were no longer selected by looks but how they felt when holding them, some initiating energy flows.
Why do I tell you this experience? Well, since the episode two years ago my ability to sense the energies slowly diminished, and on occasions returned, I am constantly trying to find that six sense again. Now, using the Aneros very similar if not the same energy flows are being woken and the sensing of energies is back. Daily I am continuously reminded of my experience two years ago which I described very briefly, could actually fill pages in describing what happened, but this time I am prepared, I can keep the Kundalini awakening energies under control by yoga and qigong all movement and breathing exercises. I really enjoy the return of the energetic well being, great to be at one with nature, to sense natures energies, sense the plants, the trees the life-force around me.
You may think “so what another person washed by the esoteric or spiritual brush” but I can only advise all Aneros user to be aware of what is described as kundalini syndrome see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini_Syndrome and quoting from that site:
Quote and in italics what I never have experienced and underkined what I again have experienced during or after an Aneros session: Researchers affiliated with the fields of transpersonal psychology and near-death studies have suggested some common criteria that describe Kundalini problems, of which the most prominent feature is a feeling of energy or heat rushing up the spine.
Other sensory and motor symptoms may include: the feeling of cranial pressures, the perception of inner sounds, experiences of inner lights, vibrating or tickling sensations in the lower back, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), changes in breathing, spontaneous bodily movements, sensations of heat or cold moving through the body, localized bodily pain that starts and stops abruptly, vibrations and itching under the skin, and unusual, or intense, sexual sensations.
Mental and affective symptoms include: fear, anxiety, depersonalization, intense positive or negative emotions, spontaneous slowing or speeding of thoughts, spontaneous trance states, experiencing oneself as larger than the physical body, and experiences of paranormal consciousness.
For completeness I must add that some 30 years ago I had two near death experiences, both times being at the brink of no return due to an anaphylactic shock.
