Understanding kundalini energy

TOPICS: Jesus learned about kundalini in the East – kundalini is an aspect of the Holy Spirit – life-giving energy that is ever-flowing – you can only shut this off by force – most people have conditions that shut off the flow – avoid techniques that force the kundalini – the flow of kundalini through the chakras – kundalini magnifies what it touches – can cause imbalance or insanity – purify your chakras and seek balance – no instant gratification – seek steady growth – tools for raising kundalini in a balanced way –

Question 1: I’m confused, did you dear Jesus ever teach on the kundalini? Is the constant stream of spiritual energy that keeps us alive and the kundalini two different energies, or are they the same thing? I would be grateful if you could please clear up some of the confusion on this. Thank you so much.

Question 2: Many people today, myself included, are having kundalini awakenings. What can you tell us about the nature of kundalini energy and how it’s awakening affects a human being?

Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:

These are excellent questions that touch upon a topic that all spiritual seekers can benefit from understanding. I did indeed teach about the kundalini energy, but I taught this only to my disciples because the multitudes were not ready for this teaching. I learned about the kundalini during my travels in India, and I experimented with some forms of yoga aimed at raising the kundalini. However, I realized that such techniques were not suited for most people, and therefore I did not teach them, not even to my disciples.

The word “kundalini” is simply another name for the stream of spiritual energy that keeps you alive. I talked about this energy in public, and you can still find hints of it in the New Testament. I normally referred to it as the “water of Life” or the “living water.” This energy is one aspect of the Holy Spirit, and you might remember that the Holy Spirit has the role of helping you grow and transcend your limitations. This is an important key to understanding the nature of the kundalini energy and the effect it has on human beings.

The most important thing you can understand about the kundalini energy is that it gives you life. The spiritual definition of “life” is something that is growing and self-transcending. Therefore, the energy of life, the kundalini energy, the living water of life, is ever-flowing and takes you beyond all boundaries and limitations. The natural state for a human being, who is in tune with his or her I AM Presence, is to flow with the River of Life and constantly transcend his or her self-awareness and sense of identity.

One might say that the central problem on planet earth is that most people have set up various conditions in their minds that cause them to shut off the natural flow of the kundalini energy through their energy fields. The human lifestream is designed to be a conduit for the flow of God’s unconditional love. Unconditional love will never stand still. When you are in this flow of love, you do not accept any conditions on earth that cause you to turn off the flow of love through you.

What has happened to most people is that they have set up various conditions in their minds, whereby they say that in this or that situation, they cannot allow unconditional love to flow through them. They cannot express love in those circumstances. Because the flow of love is the very life force itself, it is natural for it to flow. You can only shut it off through force. In reality, most people have used mental and emotional force to shut off the flow of life through their lifestreams and energy fields. In other words, they have used force to restrict the flow of life, the kundalini energy.

This is an extremely important realization, especially in light of the fact that many spiritual seekers have been lured into using various techniques that are designed to forcefully raise the kundalini energy. Such techniques have especially come from the East, where they have been used for millennia. Some of these techniques are valid, but only when they are taught by an experienced Guru to his most trusted disciples. And only when the student is in a protected environment and under constant supervision of the Guru. Please note that I am talking about techniques that force the kundalini; not the many valid techniques that are designed to produce balanced growth.

Unfortunately, we have seen a string of self-proclaimed gurus from India who have started to teach some of these techniques to anyone willing to learn—and in some cases pay the fee. This is a problem because it tricks people into attempting to take heaven by force. This is part of what I referred to in my statement:

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matthew 11;12)

Take a moment to consider the essential problem. The kundalini energy will naturally flow through your being—you do not have to do anything to force it to flow. If it has been shut off, it has been shut off through force. You have created blocks in your subconscious mind and in your energy field, specifically in the seven main energy centers, called chakras, and these blocks restrict the flow of life. So does it really make sense that you seek to use a technique that forces the kundalini to rise through the chakras?

The reality is that this makes no sense, because you are seeking to fight fire with fire. It was force that caused the natural flow of energy to be shut off. So the logical response is to remove the blocks that restrict the flow of energy, whereby it can again flow naturally. It is not logical to use force to reestablish the flow, and it should not be difficult to see why.

In a pure human being, where the river of life flows freely, the kundalini energy enters the heart chakra and then flows into the chakra that is located at the base of the spine. It then flows through all seven chakras until it reaches the crown chakra at the top of the head. When this flow is maintained, the person is in perfect balance and experiences the highest form of Christ consciousness. In this state, all of the chakras are balanced, aligned and they are spinning in the same direction.

When you begin to forcefully shut off or restrict the flow of light through the chakras, they become polluted by accumulations of negative energy. This will quickly cause the chakras to start spinning at different rates, so that they are no longer coordinated. It can even cause some of the chakras to be so blocked that they do not allow any light to flow through them. Or it can cause the chakras to spin in the opposite direction of normal, which the person experiences as extreme agitation. For example, many people have their base chakras spinning in the wrong direction, which causes them to have an insatiable desire for sex. Likewise, many people have the solar plexus chakra spinning in the wrong direction, which causes them to always be on edge and respond to many situations with irritability and anger.

What happens when an unbalanced person uses a technique to force the kundalini energy to rise through the unbalanced and blocked chakras? The kundalini is an aspect of the Holy Spirit, and it is designed to help you transcend limitations. Therefore, it will magnify anything it touches. When you force the kundalini to flow through your chakras, it will flush out and magnify all imperfections and imbalances in your chakras. This will surface in the form of thoughts and feelings that can be very intense.

In fact, many unbalanced people have used techniques to force the kundalini, only to find that their nervous systems and energy fields simply could not handle the flow of light. It is almost like sending 220 volts of electricity through an appliance designed for 110 volts. Obviously, the appliance will burn out, and many people have indeed burned out parts of their nervous systems and shattered their energy fields. This will lead to various forms of emotional disorders or even mental illness and insanity. I simply cannot stress enough how important it is to avoid forcing the kundalini energy to rise before you are ready for this.

What is the key to being ready? It is to purify your chakras and energy field until you attain a very high degree of balance and harmony. Balance and harmony truly are the keys to successful spiritual growth. These two qualities can be attained only through non-attachment, and when you are truly non-attached, you will not seek to take heaven by force.

One of the biggest problems with the exploding interest in personal and spiritual growth is that western culture is typically focused on results. In later decades this has led to an entire cult aimed at worshiping instant gratification. So when people have grown up in this culture and suddenly realize the need for spiritual growth, they often want instant and immediate results, often without making a sincere effort to gradually build a foundation for such results.

They simply want the outer phenomena, the peak experiences, the positive benefits of spiritual growth, without going through the process of earning those results. This has caused many western spiritual seekers to look for techniques that can most efficiently produce some kind of sensation or phenomenon. And many of them have been lured into using techniques that force the kundalini to rise. This can indeed be done, and it can have a very dramatic effect, but often with the results I just described.

What is the correct way to raise the kundalini energy? It is to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, whereby all else shall be added unto you. The kingdom of God is the Christ consciousness, and “righteousness” is the right use of energy, meaning a balanced and harmonious flow of energy through your being.

As I said, the nature of the kundalini energy is to flow. It only stops flowing through you because you blocked its flow. So if you strive for Christ consciousness, and as a logical consequence seek to remove all blocks and imbalances in your psychology and energy field, you will gradually open up for the flow of energy through your being. Thereby, the river of life will naturally start flowing through you, but this will not happen in an unbalanced manner.

It will happen in a balanced manner, and you will not experience a kundalini awakening until you are ready for it. In fact, if you truly go about this in a balanced manner, you will experience a steady, balanced growth instead of the violent spurts of intense spiritual experiences followed by equally intense depressions. Many unbalanced people have indeed experienced these extreme swings from highs to lows, and that is simply not the balanced path, the middle way, of the Christ and the Buddha.

So my point is that I do not advocate any spiritual seeker to focus their attention on seeking to deliberately and forcefully raise the kundalini energy. I do not advocate that people use techniques to forcefully raise the kundalini.

What techniques can you use instead? You can use all of the techniques we give on the toolbox website. Mother Mary’s rosaries and invocations are specifically designed to systematically remove the blocks in your energy field that prevent the free flow of the kundalini energy through your system. So are the decrees to the seven rays. As you use these tools, you will gradually feel the flow of life through you, but this will happen in a balanced and harmonious manner that will not damage the delicate nervous system or create holes in your energy field. Instead, you will truly be like the wise virgins who kept their lamps trimmed, who kept their chakras balanced, waiting for the bridegroom of the Christ self:

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. (Matthew, Chapter 25)
