„Rosalyn L. Bruyere, Wheels of Light „Within the ancient world, the serpent (like its larger cousin, the dragon) had long been representative of the adept, of his powers of immortality and „divine“ knowledge. Every culture of antiquity with the exception of the
Christian revered this symbol. Christianity elected to forget the brazen serpent of Moses (Numbers 21:7-9), which God instructed the patriarch to make so that those who had been bitten by snakes might look upon the brass serpent and live. Jesus himself implied the great wisdom and prudence symbolized by the serpent when he said,“ Be ye wise as serpents, and harmless as doves“ (Matthew 10:16.) In fact, throughout archaic literature, the usual mythological association of the serpent is not with deceit and corruption, as in Genesis, but with physical and spiritual well-being and enlightenment.“ Rosalyn L. Bruyere, Wheels of Light Simon & Schuster, 1994 pp. 117-18
Kundalini is a dormant energy within most people. In Hindu mythology, Kundalini is a serpent goddess who lies asleep at the base of the spine, coiled three and a half times around the first chakra. Her name is Kundalini Shakti, and she represents the unfolding of the divine Shakti energy, the energizing potential of life itself, a living goddess who enlivens all things.
Under certain circumstances, the Kundalini energy awakens and begins to rise through the body, piercing and opening the chakras as she moves in her undulating, snake-like fashion. As Kundalini releases stored and blocked energies, her movement can be quite intense, sometimes painful, and often leads to mental states that seem out of this world.“
Kundalini literally means coiling, like a snake. In the classical literature of hatha yoga kundalini is described as a coiled serpent at the base of the spine. The image of coiling, like a spring, conveys the sense of untapped potential energy. Perhaps more meaningfully kundalini can be described as a great reservoir of creative energy at the base of the spine. It´s not useful to sit with our consciousness fixed in our head and think of kundalini as a foreign force running up and down our spine. Unfortunately the serpent image may serve to accentuate this alien nature of the image. It´s more useful to think of kundalini energy as the very foundation of our consciousness so that when kundalini moves through our bodies our consciousness necessarily changes with it. The concept of kundalini can also be examined from a strictly psychological perspective. From this perspective kundalini can be thought of as a rich source of psychic or libidinous energy in our unconscious. In the classical literature of Kashmir Shaivism kundalini is described in three different manifestions. The first of these is as the universal energy or para-kundalini. The second of these is as the energizing function of the body-mind complex or prana-kundalini. The third of these is as consciousness or shakti-kundalini which simultaneously subsumes and intermediates between these two. Ultimately these three forms are the same but understanding these three different forms will help to understand the differerent manifestations of kundalini.
Shri Mataji „The Kundalini is the Truth. It is sacred. There is no hypocrisy in it. It is not something which can be purchased in a shop. This is the Absolute Truth.
… This has the effect of reducing the troubles of the ego as also other troubles. When the kumkum is applied on the above the Agnya Chakra, the Chakra is opened and Kundalini rises — such is the connection between Jesus Christ and the Kundalini Power. Shri Ganesha, who is stationed at the Mooladhara and protects the modesty of Shri Kundalini, also opens the Door at the Agnya Chakra for the Kundalini to pass through it.“
The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi „A pulsation is sometimes seen at this during Kundalini awakening. Kundalini is normally in a potential state…
Yoga is impossible without Kundalini awakening.“
The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi „Our brain is the fruit of the whole of our evolution. Whatever has been our evolution to date — that from amoebae today we have become humans — we have got all that as a result of this brain. Within this are all kinds of Powers, of all kinds. Within this is collected all the Wealth that has been received by us.“
The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi Bombay, India — May 5, 1983
„It is a inner built-in system already there, existing within you, which gives you this experience of the Spirit because you are the pure Spirit … There is an All-Pervading Power which is named by different names; that Islam calls it Ruh, in India they call Paramchaitanya, in Bible … you can say is the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost. You have never felt it before that it existed. It does exist.“
„Many diseases, even some incurable ones, have been cured by the awakening of the Kundalini. Even the data base of the inherited genes may be restructured after Self-Realization through the awakening of the Kundalini..As a result: a person who might well become a good man.. Our attention also becomes very pure. In the light of the Spirit we can see things much more clearly..A Self-Realized person can feel the absolute knowledge on the fingertips. Supposing someone doesn´t believe in God. A Self-Realized person can suggest to the non-believer that he should ask the question: “is there God?“ The questioner will get, you will find, a very nice cool breeze coming into his being. He may not believe in God, but there is God. Unfortunately, so many of those who believe in God are also absurd, hypocritical, cruel, weird and so immoral that people have lost faith in God. But while those who represent God may be wrong, God Himself exists and His Power also exists, which we call as the All-Pervading Power of Divine Love.
This is the power of love and compassion and not of aggression and destruction – this power of love and compassion and not of aggression and destruction. This power of love and compassion, when it is imbibed in a yogi or in a Self-Realized person, it works in a very different way, like an angel. Such people can cure others and cure themselves. Even mental cases have been cured. Not only that. Even those who have been to wrong gurus in their search of Truth, have achieved their spiritual stability after leaving false gurus and coming to the path of Self-Realization.
In the next stage, you become thoughtlessly aware, when your Kundalini is stabilized and you know, undoubtedly, that you have achieved your Self-Realization, that you have attained all the powers that can be utilized. You become very powerful because you can raise the Kundalini of others. You become very active and you don´t feel tired easily.
For example, I am seventy-three years of age and I am travelling about every third day, but I am quite all right. This energy flows into you and fills you up with vitality.
You become extremely dynamic and at the same time extremely compassionate, kind and mild. You feel that you are protected and thus you are confident but not egotistical.
Your whole personality changes. This is the kind of global transformation, which is taking place with such a speed all over that I, Myself, am surprised at how it is working out so fast.
Actually, this knowledge existed a long time back, but My contribution, if there is any, is that we can now achieve en masse Realization. Thousands can achieve mass Realization. It is a gift of this time where it was predicted that such global transformation will take place. …the Kundalini rises from the “Sacrum” just like a jet and passes through the fontanelle bone area to become one with the All-Pervading Power. This Kundalini is the Spiritual Mother of every individual and She knows or has recorded all the past aspirations of Her child.
She is anxious to give second birth to Her child and during Her ascent, She nourishes six energy centres. When a person is not connected to the All-Pervading Power, he is like an instrument, which is not connected to the mains and has no identity, has no meaning, has no purpose. As soon as it is connected, all that is built-in inside this instrument starts working and manifesting itself. When this Kundalini rises, it connects you to the All-Pervading Power, which is vital and which is an ocean of knowledge as well as an ocean of bliss. After the awakening of Kundalini, you experience many coincidences which are miraculous and extremely blissful. Above all, Kundalini is the ocean of forgiveness. So, whatever mistakes you have committed in the past are forgiven and instead you get your Self-Realization as a blessing.
The consequences of the awakening of the Kundalini and thereby the attainment of Self-Realization are numerous. First and foremost,
such a person is constantly in contact with or is in fact a part of the All-Pervading Divine Power. He seeks the Truth by using his new awareness.
And as Truth is One, all Self-Realized persons see this same Truth. Thus conflicts are avoided.
Purely mental activity without Self-Realization, leads to conflicting ideas and even wars. All this is avoided after Self-Realization.
Now, let us see how many other things happen in a person who gets Realization. Firstly, you start feeling the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost;
you know the Truth on your fingertips. You transcend all the limitations of race, religion and other ideas and you go beyond your mind to see and feel the Reality and understanding it.
The next thing that happens is that you become thoughtlessly aware. We live in the future and in the past through our thoughts. They come to us from these two areas of time, but we cannot be in the present. While these thoughts are rising and falling we are jumping on the cusp of these thoughts. But when the Kundalini rises, She elongates these thoughts and thereby creates some space in-between, which is the present, which is the Reality. So the past is over and the future doesn´t exist. At that time you have no thoughts. You reach a new state as you become thoughtlessly aware about which Jung has written clearly. At this moment, whatsoever happens is recorded in your memory, well, and you enjoy every moment of this Reality. When you become thoughtlessly aware, then you become completely peaceful within yourself. A person who has achieved this peace also emits peace and creates a peaceful atmosphere around himself. This peace is very important.“
