Bhishm and Hridayesh
People think that daily busy lifestyle hinders Kundalini practice. However, this does not happen. Kundalini rises very fast due to busy work. Yoga also gives the power to do daily work. Both of work and yoga are complementary and supportive of each other. After 3 days of cycling, my Kundalini reached the brain from the muladhara. In the midst of heavy heat, I was able to run so much with bicycle, because my mind and body were fit with daily Kundalini yoga exercises.
My Bicycling Yoga Experience
This week, due to partial corona lockdown, I started visiting my office on cycle. One day used to travel for a total of 20 kilometers. On the first day, I noticed that my basement/muladhar was very strong and full of pressure. That sensation was the same as one feels with semen retention. It was as if someone on my muladhara chakra had kicked deep with a pointed leather shoe from the front, and then I was getting sweet and deep pain. That made me a little restless during the day. That sensation again increased while doing yoga. I used to try to push that sensation repeatedly through back. By contemplating the Sheshnag of the back with Pranayama, that sensation seemed to go up. I have described this pranayama in an old post with “backward flow” and “Sheshnag” category. When that pain-like sensation used to go up, then there was a sweet pain like spasm in the back. At the same time, the Kundalini picture also used to appear there. This went on for two days. On the third day, that sensation hit my rear Anahata Chakra. It seemed as if someone had hit my back Anahata Chakra with a pointed leather shoe, after which sweet and deep pain was being caused on it. From it, the pressure and the sensation at muladhara disappeared. Sensation bypassed the Manipur Chakra. This meant that the Manipur Chakra was not blocked. The chakra that is blocked, there the sweet pain is felt. After a day, that sensation started climbing up through the neck. Then I started feeling the sweet pain and stiffness in the center of the neck (Vishuddhi Chakra). On the same day, my Muladhara got more sensation from outside means. That sensation went up easily, as the base chakra was already unblocked by the previous flow. It met the neck sensation and made it stronger. The sensation of Anahata Chakra disappeared. The next day, that sensation from the neck started reaching the brain, causing the head to feel lighter but heavier during energy surges. I was sitting in a chair during the day, and I got a 4-5 minute nap. When I got up, the energy surge was sweeping the entire brain. The mind was heavy and pressurized. It seemed that bunches of bees were flying in it. Although bliss was also coming. To prevent that feeling from interfering with the work, I touched the opposite face of tongue with the palate. From that, immediately the surge of sensation came down through the front channel and came to my front anahata chakra. That made my mind completely calm, as if nothing had happened. Kundalini appeared strongly in the heart, and that was elated with joy. There was lonely energy in the brain; Kundalini appeared only in the heart. This proved that love resides in the heart. It is not a surprising miracle, but a phenomenon related to the normal physiology of the body. This type of Kundalini flow continues throughout the life of a yogi. Kundalini awakening happens only when there are many favorable conditions for it, and the chakras are not blocked. At the time when the energy surge was enveloping my mind, if I had a deep memory of Kundalini for any reason, then it would have been a favorable situation for Kundalini awakening. In fact, it was a surge of Prana in the brain, because it did not have a Kundalini. Conversely, Kundalini can also create a surge of Prana. This means, deep remembrance of Kundalini itself creates a surge of Prana in the mind. Kundalini is associated with this surge itself, because it is Kundalini that has created the surge (great wave) of Prana. In that case, Kundalini awakening often occurs. The same Kundalini awakening happened to me about 3 years ago, which I have described on the homepage of this website.
Biking or cycling yoga stimulates diaphragmatic breath
I think my Muladhara Chakra was greatly agitated by taking deep breaths with my belly while riding a bicycle. In sports bikes, the posture of the back is in its natural state, and Muladhara Chakra is also stimulated by the pressure of its thin seat. Together, the meditation of Sheshnag breathing in and out in the form of my back gave my Muladhara more energy. With that, semen power started accumulating in the base chakra. It also triggered backward flow, which caused the accumulated energy in the base chakra to climb up through back channel. Muladhara’s sensation was the same as that produced by conserving sexual energy. Together, it was also motivating for sexual intercourse. Perhaps this is the reason why people active in work are also sexually active. I used to keep the mouth and tongue closed tightly, and most of the surface of the tongue was tightly affixed to the palate. I used to think of it like a slab of the top of a pillar, which connected the brain to the front pillar or energy channel. With this, at the time of cycling, the useless thoughts of the mind used to flow down, and give energy to the body. It also kept my mind calm, and there was no tiredness either.
The next day my Kundalini energy returned to the Manipur Chakra
The next day my deep and sweet pain came on the rear Manipur Chakra. Possibly, it descended from the front Anahata Chakra to the front Manipur Chakra. From the front, it had come to the rear Manipur Chakra in the back. In fact, this sweet pain is called energy. This energy rotates in the channel loop. When the strongest and favorite mental picture is mixed with this pain, then this energy is called Kundalini. I also felt that empty energy is more effective on the back chakras, while Kundalini is more effective on the front chakras. The twists or bands that form in the back at various places form the energy with which the Kundalini picture is mixed.
Kundalini awakening is not necessary for spiritual progress
The contribution of Kundalini awakening is that it instills unwavering faith in the mind of the seeker towards Kundalini Yoga meditation. From that, the seeker keeps doing Kundalini Yogasadhana every day. In this way, if a person always performs Kundalini Yogasadha in the right way, then in a way his Kundalini will be considered awakened. However, to learn Kundalini Yogasadhana properly, he will need a qualified teacher. In a way, this website is also working as a guru (e-guru).
