Kundalini doesn’t just awaken on command or through a practice of some sort. You are not selected because of something you did or didn’t do. Nevertheless, if it does happen to you, think of yourself as a conscript in the evolutionary upward march. You are not prophet or a victim.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, kundalini is never dormant, never completely inactive. It’s either in a maintenance state (Prana Shakti) or a creative state (Kundalini Shakti).h If it stopped working altogether, you’d be dead.
I had to sink real low before rebounding. Finding yoga and meditation were instrumental in my recovery. When kundalini awakened, I immediately felt unbounded. My consciousness had changed, and along with it, my Being. Washing the dishes became the same as going to a party.
Lives are being shattered because not everyone in whom kundalini is active wanted it to happen. Problem is: there’s no known way of mitigating these energy surges. As a consequence, people who’d never even heard of “kundalini” are suffering from overdoses of pranic energy, especially in spontaneous cases.
In my 40 years of listening to Kundalini awakening stories, I've heard so many trigger variations it is nearly impossible to categorize them. Everything from meditation to drugs, physical exertion to sexual ecstasy to Shaktipat to minding one's own business. My trigger was meditation.
