The abundance of wildlife in and around the ashram where I am staying in North India. I am surrounded by deer, fireflies, bugs galore including many species of ant, caterpillars, centipede’s and more dragonfly’s than I can possibly count, not to mention the butterflies in all their array of different colours. The sheer amount of birds species is incredible! I also saw a peacock wondering around this afternoon. I adore the sweet squirrels with their stripy raccoon style colouring. They’re so tame. Always scampering everywhere but not really running too far away.
I was eating my fruit in the kitchen this morning and I found I had a lizard for company. Not a gecko ( I do love them and they’re everywhere), but a very long tailed green lizard. It was wonderful!
Everywhere I look there is some creature, running, scampering, playing, flying, or crawling. Or in the case of Holy the old dog, lying down having a belly rub. 🙂
The silence. Besides the many different bird song, there is just…. simply… silence.
My breath. Bringing awareness to my breath during meditation. It’s sweetness, the force with which I am being kept alive, fills my heart with gratitude.
This excerpt from the documentary KUNDALINI highlights how our kundalini energy, our awakened consciousness, which rises from the root chakra to the crown, is depicted in religions of the world.
According to Hindu tradition, Kundalini Shakti or the divine feminine energy resides at the base of the spine in the first chakra and slowly makes her ascent up the spine when she has been awakened. Her role as divine energy is to travel to the crown chakra at the top of the head to unite with her beloved Shiva, the divine masculine energy, or pure consciousness who is inert until the sacred circuit is completed. Shakti’s duty is to purify the individual in the soul body, physical body, mental body, psychological body and emotional body as she ascends, giving us her blessings to evolve to our maximum potential. Kundalini nourishes the Tree of Life within us and is coiled up like a sleeping snake and therefore it is called the serpent power.
Christians called it a reflection of the Holy Ghost. The Old Testament symbol becomes significant in Christianity when Christ suggests Kundalini awakening. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness even as the Son of Man be lifted up that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life.
The caduceus, held by Roman God Mercury with one or two coiled serpents entwined around the staff, represents Kundalini which rises along the central, subtle channel in a spiral movement.
The Lord Buddha spoke of the Middle Path to achieve Nirvana. He was actually describing the central channel Sushumna which the Kundalini ascends from the root chakra to the crown chakra.
In the Holy Quran, the prophet Mohammed Sahib talked of the day of resurrection when he says that The Hands Will Speak. When Kundalini awakening occurs a flow of energy in the form of cool vibrations from the hands is experienced. And the various chakras can be felt on parts of the hands and fingers.
Shekhina, the radiance of God is the Hebrew concept of Kundalini Shakti. It is a feminine Hebrew word meaning the dwelling or settling and is used to denote the dwelling or settling presence of God.
“The thing to be aware of though, when a person is going through the process of raising their kundalini Shakti, it’s very difficult for them to identify it and it’s what I call the false kundalini process or the false born again. It’s a fairly easy process if I were ruthless and wanted to control people, to lead them through it. What it is is a mind control technique. It’s really simple. It’s done quite often in charismatic churches. Where you:
Allow the volume or your voice to go up and down.
Tell a sad story, a happy story, knock a person’s emotional consciousness of balance.
Induce guilt, fear or anger.
Offer them a way to get rid of that.
They will swear on a bible they are born again and it has absolutely nothing to do with religion. It is a mind control game. It is actually a stage hypnosis induction technique.
It’s totally false and where it is so dangerous is, the pitfall is instead of you surrendering to the Divine, which is what makes a person raise the consciousness slope, the person surrenders their authority to another human being. They look for some-ONE to surrender their authority to.”
The majority of what we are shown is fear-inducing, low vibrational content. Not all of the time, granted. Comedy shows and earth and animal documentaries are great and really interest me and I’m sure you guys all have your own personal favourites too, but the sad fact is, we never really get shown the truth about the stuff that really matters.
I discovered an ad on Instagramlast year for Gaia TV which really resonated with me at the time as I was experiencing another of my awakening processes, part of which you can read about here.
Gaia’s vision is to power the evolution of consciousness.
Gaia’s mission is to create a transformational network that empowers a global conscious community.
I liked their ethos so I had a little peek at the website, and I realised that this conscious TV was the type I’d like to watch. So, I subscribed and have now been enjoying Truth TV, at it’s best, for the past ten months.
Sometimes, I watch the documentaries and films whilst doing nothing else. Other times I place my laptop on my kitchen counter and watch/listen whilst I am washing up or cooking. Often times my ears really prick up and a particular part and I think, ‘I really need to note this down for my blog’!
I just feel that I want more and more people to see these amazing films. The teachings within all of the topics have certainly awakened me to mind-blowing stuff I had never known before. And that’s one of the reasons I love this website. I’m being educated whilst doing the washing up!
So, yeah, I have noted so many areas of interest which I’d like to share with you readers and I will continue to do so. Just click on Gaia in my main menu and it’ll take you to a ( eventually) library of conscious raising content.
