My Kundilini Awakening Journal, Third Eye Opening Experiences

Kundilini Awakening Journal

Date wise Kundilini awakening journal entries:

16th December, 2022:

I woke up at around 3 am and decided to meditate as this is the hour which is considered most appropriate for the same. For the first time I experienced a lightly throbbing sensation exactly at the spot Third Eye Chakra (Ajna Chakra) is supposed to be located: a bit above the center of the eyebrows. It kind of the ants moving sensation which is lightly pressing against the inside of the forehead.

I could hold this only for 10 minutes and immediately lapped up my computer and began searching about the phenomenon I was experiencing. Google confirmed that it is of course related to the beginning of the opening of the Third Eye Chakra. It said that the Kundilini Shakti which remains dormant at the base of the spine (near Muladhara Chakara) is beginning to move up the spine and trying to activate the Third Eye (Pineal Gland) Chakra in the forehead.

It was actually a eye opening experience for me as I had only read about this phenomenon in books or known it from senior experienced teacher. “Ghosh'” this is really happening to me? I was a bit intrigued too because the terms Kundilini and Third Eye had a strong mystical connotation to themselves.

After this I began meditating regularly to keep providing a push to the process from myside. The throbbing sensation of the experience prodded me to push it more from behind for expediting the process.

It infused a sense of achievement into me, somewhere akin to a bloated ego.

Mediation Technique I devised | Kundilni Awakening Journal

As the pulsating sensations at the Third Eye Chakra continued with each meditation, I had become regular with my mediations now, I learnt about the nuances of how to hold the container of the body right in order for the pulsations to intensify with the maximum force.

What done wrong was diminishing the pulsations and what was being done right which was re kindling the sensations. The Kundilini awakening journa, here, enter those findings in detail.

Begin by consciously taking the mind off any engagements in the present in order to prepare for the meditation process. Turn the entire attention to setting the intent of meditating for the next half an hour or so.

Sit on a cotton mat, yoga mats made of synthetic materials disturb the ion (positive and negative) balance of the associated energy and can produce turbulence instead of tranquility in the mind. Sit in Sukhasana (cross legged) position.

The crossed legs, with feet facing toward the body creates a stable base for the upper body to be firmly held over it. Place the palms (facing down) on the respective knees, straighten the spine vertically upwards, emerging at right angle from the base formed by the legs crossed over each other.

Make sure the head is vertically aligned with the spine by lifting the chin up and keeping it parallel to the floor. Now, look straight ahead and slowly defocus the mind on the visual preset in front of the eyes. As the eyelids begin to feel heavier, slowly close the eyes. Run your attention to each part of the body, beginning from any of the ends, and relax these parts by mentally vocalizing the word ‘relax.’4

This activity can take anywhere between 5 to 10 mins to complete. Next, bring your awareness to the breath. Remain aware of the position of the spine (to be held vertically straight) and that of the chin (to be prevented from dropping down). Feel each inhalation and exhalation with complete attention on the expanding of the lungs while inhaling and caving in of the thoracic cavity on each exhalation.

After a few breaths you will notice that the mind begins to calm / shut down after each exhalation. Inhalation, on the other hand activates the thought process. Slowly, cautiously, effortlessly, lengthen the exhalation. Feel the relaxation setting in the mind as a feeling of numbness begins to merge within it.

Avoid ending the exhalation by will, let it keep hanging, continuing on tis own till it empties the lungs into a pause, or Sunkya. Focus on this gap between the inhalation and exhalation. Suppress the urge to consciously begin the next inhalation, let the breathing rhythm take its time and the Sunyaka pause flow smoothly into the subsequent inhalation.

You will notice that the longer the pause (Sunyaka) the more relaxed becomes the mind. Position the eyes into Shambhavi Mudra, (eyes focused between the center of the eyebrows) while the eyelid remain closed. After a few breaths a tingling sensation will begin to appear a little above the space between the two eyebrows. This is the point where the third eye Chakra or the Pineal Gland is located. This sensation resembles the cool tingle left behind in the mouth after one had upon chewed paper mint candy.

This tingling sensation is created by the Kundilini energy emerging from the Mooldhara Chakra and reaching the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna Chakra) after passing through all the five Chakras located below it.

Focus on this sensation as it grows in intensity. In case it looses the intensity it would be due to your loosing the vertical alignment of the spine. Straighten the spine and lift the chin again. A regular Yoga practice will impart enough strength to the body so that you can hold the spine vertically up for longer durations of time.

You may experience occasional twitching int the lover spine and the tingle moving up towards the head. This is normal as the Moolabandha is taking place at the base of the spine on its own from the impact of the meditative state you are slipping into. Hold this state of mind as well as the body for as longas you can and end the practice by slowly opening the eyes and returning the the awareness of the surroundings.

13 January, 2023: Kundilini Awakening Journal

While I was asleep in prone position, the Third Eye Chakra began to throb heavily. This woke me up at around 1:30 am. I was lying straight on my belly, with face resting one a pillow, turned towards left. The body, legs were properly extended along its length.

Felt a twitch in the base of the spine from where intense electrical current like impulses snked towards the head. I could feel these impulses hit the top center of my head (Sahasrara Chakra). As i was till lying in the same position the center of the head felt cool and as if a vacuum was created there.

I got up and sat on a sofa. It was feeling like the mind is completely calm, not sleepy. I coul for the first time experience the feeling of being completely awake. Slept back after sometime. Got up at 7: 30 am again and felt extremely fresh, head felt lighter and awareness sharper.
