Kundalini in the Arms

Kundalini in the Arms

 

Conventional kundalini is the arms, forearms and fingers is a rare experience even for those yogis who claim to master kundalini arousal practices. Spinal kundalini which concerns the nadi system which is master through sushumna spinal passage could be felt in the arms but if it is, it is usually centered in the bones of arms, forearm and hands.

 

When doing spinal kundalini practice, at some stage, a question arises, as to if it concerns only the spine and brain. Stated precisely, why does the yogi experience only the spine and brain as the sensation spreading areas for kundalini? What about the other parts of the body?

 

For instance, what about a specific toe?

What about the elbow?

 

If he mastered the practice, will the yogi be left only with spinal kundalini and the subtle head as his subtle body?

Will the other parts of the subtle body suddenly disappear?

 

~~~~~~~

 

I report here on a kundalini experience, which is a cell kundalini one, not a spinal collective kundalini arousal.

 

This has to do with kundalini of individual cells expressing their micro-kundalinis in collectives as for instance the cells in an organ or sector of the body.

 

This experience was with the arm, forearm and hand. Each cell in those areas suddenly acted to express their individual kundalini psycho-physical charge simultaneously. This may be compared to a flock of birds, hundreds of them, which move through the air in a wavy motion or a school of sardines moving through the ocean together. Individually their movements are unique but as a collective, the movement is like a symphony.

 

As the cells expressed their micro-kundalinis, the collective energy was an intense bliss-yielding experience with bliss spikes of cool mint sensations moving to the under arm, to the area where in women fats accumulates behind and inside the arm.

 

An experience like this is not always distinct but in this case, it was. I may have such experiences for weeks or months before I develop the pranavision to objectively perceive it.

 

 

Pranavision is interesting because unlike the visual perception which we have in a material body, pranavision is not always available. One may have pranavision during a session of breath infusion in one area of the psyche but it may not be present in another area of the psyche which one tries to perceive during the same session.

So hello Michael :) I read with interest your piece on Kundalini in the arms. This is an internal sensation yes? Not the same as when the fingers and arms begin to spontaneously dance in and out of mudra? I have also experienced something less subtle and, at the time, more concerning. This begins with a vibration in both middle fingers, which then begin to twist with something more insistent. It is as if somebody takes me in a double arm twist. The tension moves swiftly into the heart and will usually insist that I drop face-down to the floor with both palms turned backwards and facing the sky. My only recourse at this time is kapalabhati. Any advice?

It sure is but better is to state that it is a subtle body sensation for the most part with some of it being a sensation in the nerves of the physical form.

It is not the same as the fingers and arms dancing but it is similar, with the difference being that when the fingers and arms dance in that way, there is a willpower participation where the will power is in the flow of the movement like being a strand of fabric in a waving flag. As the flag waves that particular strand also waves, even though the strand is part of the flag and is not the whole movement.

 

In the kundalini experience, the willpower is not part of the experience. The experience is happening and the willpower is like a bystander looking on, experiencing as a witness of the motion.

 

 

I have also experienced something less subtle and, at the time, more concerning. This begins with a vibration in both middle fingers, which then begin to twist with something more insistent. It is as if somebody takes me in a double arm twist. The tension moves swiftly into the heart and will usually insist that I drop face-down to the floor with both palms turned backwards and facing the sky. My only recourse at this time is kapalabhati.

 

In that experience in the inSelf Yoga™ process which I teach, the yogi would allow the subtle body to complete the twist and other actions which follow while the physical form remains in the position it was in before the experience began. This allows for the separation of the physical and subtle, where the yogi gets that distinction clearly and does not confuse one for the other. If the yogi finds that the actions are equally being felt in both bodies, then he may complete the actions in both bodies with the physical system doing it as well, but his focus would be more in the subtle and less if any in the physical, so that the physical is like a shadow.

 

Any advice?

 

Please have an expert check your kapalabhati practice.

Hi Michael-thanks for your response. I can see no way to respond on the link address supplied. You speak there of an involvement of willpower in the movement that I refer to as spontaneous. From my viewpoint there is no willpower involved in the movements, apart from a subtle sense of witnessing. The movements are no problem when they occur during meditation, but do require some conscious suppression in inappropriate settings (such as in the supermarket). This 'over-ruling' of what appears to be the 'dance-desire' of the hands and arms also causes a tightening and shaking of the TMJ causing a chattering of the teeth. At the same time there is a withdrawal of blood-flow from the hands and feet, to the extent that they can turn blue and become very cold. Thank you for your attention and advice.

The subtle sense of witnessing is the function which converts into willpower. A small part of it may convert but when there is great impulsion, then the whole of it converts into that.

This condition is a kundalini induced condition but only in the sense everything movement in the body is kundalini regulated in some way or the other. However my recommendation for checking these feelings is related to developments which come about due to practice of pranayama breath-infusion. The feelings are gaged during that practice and during the meditation which immediately follows that practice.

 

Other instances of kundalini arousal especially those which are or which evolve into a medical condition like TMJ, should be rated differently. This is because kundalini movement with breath-infusion and contractions are deliberately done by the yogi, where he can observe where a particular type of breathing in a particular posture causes a particular set of feelings and subtle actions.

 

When there are feelings which occur spontaneously, then these may or may not be positive towards spiritual realization and if they are, then how are such feelings to be repeated because they were not caused by a deliberate action of the yogi like breath-infusion and asana postures or particular mental movements in meditation.

Thank you. I take your point. TMJ in this case is not referring to a medical condition, just an anatomical location in the body. I would almost prefer that this be a medical or psychological aberration (although it is always accompanied by an increase in perception and generally triggered by the non-mundane). I do see the wisdom in having the yogi deliberately trigger any movement and thus retain some sort of control over Her. Yet from the beginning, for this one, it has been more like a VERY demanding mistress whose appearance demands surrender. As you can see, I am born a Westerner and had no concept of these energies before having the immense good fortune of being 'taken' after sitting on a hornets nest by accident. My question is not from fear...more from a desire to learn how to prevent this resistance and be able to 'die' and allow her to manifest more completely. As I write this I am seeing the paradox of perceiving myself as somehow separate from that and owning the desire for union rather than allowing everything to be as it is. I withdraw my question and thank you for your time Michael.
