OPEN HAND – What is Kundalini? – How to Activate it? – 5-10-14

There’s a profound spiritual possibility open to all people: the opportunity to be absolutely connected to the source of all life, and have that energy steer us in the direction of destiny. Kundalini is the natural creative alignment with the divine; it is our inherent birthright that most have been separated from. How do you unify lower and higher self so that you may reactivate your Kundalini? What would be the advantages of doing so? Activating Kundalini is like connecting to the fast track of the internal superhighway – plugging directly into the ‘mains’ of universal consciousness…

What is Kundalini?

To me the soul is a flowing stream of consciousness, out from the source and back again. In an aligned state, it’s an eternal flow of creativity, symbolised by the figure 8. You’re in creative alignment with the divine, every step feels interconnected with the universe, an orchestra of synchronicity sounding in your ears. It’s like every action is supported, and even when your creative manifestation is blocked in the physical world by someone or something, you’re still able to appreciative the deeper significance, the deeper meaning, the higher teaching that all co-creators in the event are being invited to realise. This interconnected flow of creativity is the harmonious flow of an aligned and balanced soul. This is kundalini.

Most – if not all – have suffered the loss of this inherent condition early in life. It is caused by an interdimensional intervention – an Opposing Consciousness – with the agenda of separating mankind from his divinity and creating an artificial reality in which to enslave him. When you look around you in the world at how humanity lives, it’s easy to appreciate how effective this separation has been.We can reactivate this kundalini. And to do so will guide you on a profound journey of rediscovery of who you truly are and your place in the cosmos. You become once more an active channel for divine expression. So how do you do it? How do you reclaim your true nature?

How to activate Kundalini?

Firstly, it greatly helps to keep reminding yourself of the higher connection through spiritual practice. The power of meditation cannot be over stated. Of course there are many forms, but essentially the principle we’re looking for is a way of softening identification with the lower physical/emotional nature – feeling through that and instead, touching the softness around us. It’s experienced as a sense of expansiveness, pure light, stillness and peace. When you begin to embody this higher nature, there’s a feeling of wellbeing and harmony: pure inner peace.

It can be done through countless spiritual practices such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, martial arts, shamanism, crystal healing, sounding healing, aromatherapy, reiki, five rhythms dance, through connection with nature and probably one of the most powerful – loving sexual intimacy.But this connection to higher self is not the end of the story. It is only the beginning – a plateau which we must break through and beyond if we are to progress further. We must then cleanse and purify the lower vehicles to actually unify lower and higher self. How do we do that?

Opening the channels for Kundalini

The lower self composed of body and mind has been essentially separated from the higher self by a karmic barrier in the fourth density which generates ego. It’s a consciousness which addicts people to base levels of desire through fear and sense of lack. It causes people to effort to control reality, generating the build-up of conditioned behaviours, isolating them from their inherent connection. So essentially we must confront and break down these fear based patterns that embed the lower consciousness within our being.

Imagine sitting in an orchestra of music where the base section is playing so loud, the finer sounds of the flute (for example) can no longer be heard nor felt. This is the effect within society of the denser vibrational consciousness.Here are some key areas we’ll need to look at..

  • Food: industrialised and processed food is full of impurity. From preservatives to pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, artificial colourings and GMO, these disharmonious substances create ‘excito-toxins’ within the body. It becomes like white noise, contracting our consciousness into the denser vibrations. It’s the same with meat and dairy, which many would argue the human body was not designed consume or digest. When people convert to a mainly plant based diet, they get healthier and their vibration rises. The sense of interconnectivity greatly increases (see Trinity’s Conscious Kitchen).
  • Fear and control: Mostly fear happens when we realise we cannot control the situation; we’re needing a particular outcome or are resistant to what’s really happening. It’s all caused by false identification with who we think we are. Such erroneous perceived need, creates tightness and density which sucks the soul into it like water into a sponge. You can literally feel the contraction inside. Yet if we challenge this when it’s happening, soften into the tightness and unwind the need of an outcome, then we find the universe shapes through us the ‘Right Action’ (‘right’ defined as being in alignment). Once more you feel your interconnectivity as the One Life.
  • External distraction: It would seem society has been purposefully constructed to distract people from their inner self. Yet within rests the seat of our power – our kundalini. Our inner configuration of consciousness creates the reality we’re experiencing. Both our aligned state and distortions are mirrored into the outer world. So trying to fix the outer is a pointless waste of time, and only distracts from the source of the creativity. Hence we must not only delve deep within, but be constantly attuning to our inner self through the events of our lives. You touch the place of the void – infinite potential – the crystal clear clarity of the Seer. Upon which, right action then flows through you. It could also be enjoyment within the physical world, but you do it because you feel a sense of rightness to it, there’s no getting lost in it, and your actions are supported by co-creative synchronicity of the universe.
  • Inner child/Inner teenager: when we’re in the flow of life in this way, then the soul begins to integrate and infuse within. It’s purpose is the empowered experience of the One. And so (assuming we allow it), the soul will flow into all the inner density that prevents the expansive freedom of an enlightened life – fueled by kundalini. Especially it will take us into our inner child and teenager identities – a complex inner web of fixed bahviours, fears and identifications with the illusion. The false self creates false reality filters through which we judge life thereby creating unaligned choices leading to disharmony. So as the soul now infuses, we must allow the contraction of these filters to expose themselves as inner tightness, but now soften and unwind into the constriction. We must challenge and confront the lower based behaviours, interrupting the old reactions and instead choosing the responses of our highest truth. This will unwind the old density.
  • Matrix Consciousness: the limiting consciousness of the matrix is omnipresent through the field, influencing mind and emotions. It’s a web of fixed ideas and behaviours – energy – which owns people. We think we’re making free choices, but mostly they’re confined within limiting fields and parameters. You appreciate this just as soon as you start making choices of the soul – you tend to rebel against the non-aligned ways of society. It’s vitally important that we honour this new emerging truth, or we continue to strangle the life out of the soul. There’s no need for conflict, but if we work at it, we can still express our truth with tact and without reservation. Sometimes this may mean saying or doing nothing, but in the process, embodying depth of truth that says energetically “this is where I stand!”. It’s all apart of the reattunement inside. If we’re constantly expressing the soul, then it will strengthen within.
  • Electrosmog including wifi: the surrounding field is full of interfering electronic frequencies from wifi, mobile phone networks, household electrical circuits, gadgets and appliances. They cause a huge amount of interference within our bodily field. If we can minimise the use of such gadgetry in our lives, then our biomagnetic field will become more harmonious and aligned.
  • People that don’t serve: We may find we have to let go of certain relationships – people that constantly remind you of the old consciousness and continue to suck you into it. There will be yet others who beneficially activate your old patterns so that you may break through them. Hence there’ll be some relationships to maintain, even if they aren’t always harmonious – because they challenge you to be more of you. But in these more challenging engagements, the key is to always take the opportunity to expand who you are within them, even if that means a degree of uncomfortable confrontation. If you’re truly meant to be in that relationship, the person will come to accept you as who you truly are, even if they don’t agree with you. They’ll be brought to a place where they’re not constantly challenging you. So be mindful of which relationships to maintain and which to release. Thus you’re opening into the new consciousness and kundalini is strengthening within you through the application of aligned Right Action.
  • Compassion for all life: Compassion is an inherent characteristic of the soul, signaled by the fact that we’re interconnected with all life. Energetically, what we do to another sentient being, we do to ourselves. And if we deny the impact of our footprint on other life, then we’re denying an inner aspect of ourselves too. So by exploring the choices we make in relation to the impact on life they have, causes us to increase our sensitivity and intimacy with the whole of life. From the clothes we wear to the food we eat, how we travel and what we consume in society, all these activities contain energy. As we become ever mindful of our actions, then compassion arises naturally, which increases the inflow of kundalini.

Integrating Kundalini into our lives

Generally speaking, in order to activate kundalini, we must open and harmomise the chakras. In the Openhand Approach, the chakras are consciousness exchange points where the consciousness of the soul infuses within the bodymind. Where we become identified with the bodymind, then convolution, tightness and disconnection ensues. So by bringing conscious attention into these centres and softening into them, means we reconstitute the natural infusion of soul. At Openhand we do this through breath work, exhaling into each chakra and relaxing until we can feel the inflow of soul.

Alternatively it can happen through deep consciousness bodywork. Specifically, you’re penetrating the denseness of the bodymind through movement and breathing; you’re feeling and touching the lightness through you, that which penetrates you. In attuning to this expansive feeling, you’re literally becoming the sense of soul, which in turn unleashes it within. And the more attention you can bring to this feeling, the stronger it will become.What we need to remember however, is that you cannot divorce effective spiritual practice from its impact within our lives. So activation of the chakras will highlight the lessons we now need to work through, as we navigate our relationships and external circumstances. It shines a spotlight on them. So we have to work through the distortions highlighted if the effect of the spiritual work is to be fully integrated within our being. Otherwise we’re wasting our time. So to activate and unleash balanced kundalini, there has to be integration of our spiritual beingness into our physical life.

The pitfalls of Kundalini Activation

Without this integration aforementioned, then spiritual practice becomes either ineffectual, or else it disconnects you from true reality. In extreme circumstances, some spiritual practice can lead to premature kundalini activation: it’s being forced without the proper integration of the new, higher beingness within our lives. It’s like conducting too much electrical energy through a fuse that’s too small. It leads to ‘burn-out’. The person becomes disconnected from a true interrelation with the world. They often seem distanced, aloof, spaced-out and not really in their body. It can also lead to psychotic behaviour.

We have to be mindful then of practices which unnaturally force kundalini without the proper integration of the higher spiritual behaviour in our lives. In my experience, psychedelic drugs such as Ayahuasca and also forced kundalini yogic breathing are practices to be wary of. What we’re looking for is a steady build up of kundalini energy over time, allowing it to progressively flow into our density so that we can unravel and integrate it through our daily lives. Then it becomes the most profoundly rewarding and beneficial influence imaginable.

When kundalini is activating in a balanced way, you’ll know it as an increasing sense of lightness, expansiveness and inner harmony. You’ll notice the universe speaking to you through synchronicity. You’ll feel the soul compelling you to act in accordance with the natural flow. There’ll be an increasing sense of contentment. You’ll be having constant breakthroughs where it feels like coming home to who you truly are.

The miracle of Kundalini

I’ve witnessed many people experience the full activation of kundalini through the Openhand work. When the breakthrough finally happens, it’s a very special moment, something you’ll treasure your entire life. The soul encased within the lower self, rises up the spine then reconnects higher and lower self in the third eye. Sense of separated self completely vanishes. Your true self emerges, everywhere and nowhere, penetrating the space between the spaces. Crystal clear clarity emerges. You know yourself experientially as the One. There is nothing that can match it.

From now on, you flow eternally as the soul, an individuated expression of the eternal. But most importantly, although you’re having this experience of the soul, you still know yourself as the eternal presence that precedes it. You are still the Source – still infinite potential. It’s like having your ‘cake’ and eating it too!So I’d encourage all to work with the activation of kundalini to restore attunement and interconnectivity with the universe – our natural state. But we must do so with care, mindfulness and progressive integration into our daily lives. That way, it builds a solid basis through which to flow. We’re able to harmonise inner and outer seamlessly. It becomes pure bliss!

Hilarion on Kundalini Energy – 9-23-15

Lord MaitreyaHilarion on Kundalini Energy  –   9-23-15

I come to you today from the 29th loka.

I would like to share with you just a little bit around the kundalini energy which may rise from your base chakras upward
throughout the sushumna channel within your spinal column.

Arise spontaneously and it will glide with greater ease.

I am sharing a way where you will not need the pranayams, the breathings and such.

In this way it will actually be rising and flowing more smoothly.

This is also the way of the chinese shakyamuni, my lord gautama.

If you balance the elements ,( as we are emerging from piscean age),
of earth, wood. metal and water,

your kundalini will rise in the smoothness of what we, and how we have shared.

If you combine the soon to be influx of breathing pranayams and other practices,

it will not be the rising we are speaking of.

It will be born in different energies and will not rise the same way.

As they say, (because of the nature of it),  this is a take it or leave it proposition.

We know you appreciate our clarity.

And we love you with all of our heart.



Lord Maitreya has asked Master Hilarion to deliver the final portion of the message :
Different people have different energies.
On a practical level different personalities have different energies.
Sometimes certain people at times may frustrate you.
Others may confuse you.

Still others may bore you.

Whatever the case, wouldnt it be nice to experience a bit more fluid and in your power inner reactions when those times occur.

Working with the elements of wood, earth, metal and water , just feel them, will translate to working , whatever with
as these elements also represent some of the qualities and tendencies of human personalities.

Yes, you will not lose your inner power.

You will be able to be kind.
You will be able to and feel free  to deliver some force of personality
if your intuition delivers that through you.

So here is your practice…

Practice balancing the ‘chinese’ elements of wood earth metal water .

Looking at it as chinese gives a brilliant energetic experience to guide you.

But looking at those elements without bringing in the chinese part , has a differing energetic signature.

Chinese first, later try other.

If do this, maybe have very quite different experience watch others, look others, hear others, feel others.

This is a way that affects, moves, your inner intelligences.

And they like it.

So we are Hilarion and Gautama,

and we love you, and good night.


Kundalini Energy – Rising Of The Snake – Euphoric Enlightenment – Primal Forces Of Creation


Here is a YouTube Playlist for Kundalini Awakening





Kundalini Awakening




Kundalini is a dormant energy within most peple.

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.

Circumstances that stimulate Kundalini awakening are many and varied, but are usually triggered by such things as extended periods of meditation, yoga, fasting, stress, trauma, psychedelic drugs, or near death experiences.

Kundalini is a condensed, primal force, similar to the potential energy found in water. When released, it creates a vertical connection between the chakras by opening the subtle channels known as nadi, most specifically, the central channel that moves up the spine called sushumna. If we put water through a small hose at very high pressure, the end of the hose will undulate like a snake. Similarly, the intense energy of Kundalini undulates in the body as it rises through the chakras.

Kundalini can also be seen as a result of the chakras connecting to each other.Theoretically, as the chakras enlarge, the spinning of one can enchance the spinning of the one above or below it.

Kundalini is basically a healing force, but its effects can sometimes be quite unpleasant. Such effects may last for minutes, days, months, or even years.


If you find yourself dealing with uncomfortable Kundalini awakening symptoms, you should:

1) Purify the body. Abstain from recreational drugs, tobacco, alcohol, and caffein, prescription drugs. Avoid food additives, high sugars, or greasy foods. Eat well, especially protein which is generally grounding. Get massage and vigorous exercise.

2) Reduce stress. If you are in for a major spiritual transformation, make time for the necessary changes in your life. You may need to devote more time to your spirituality or health.

3) Find Support. Find other who have knowledge of this experience.

4) Educate yourself. Read about Kundalini, Kundalini awakening,Yoga and learn about Chakras.

5) Treat underlying psychological issues. As Kundalini brings up unresolved issues, this is the best time to deal with them. It will make the ride smoother.

6) Examine your spiritual practices. If you have not been practicing meditation, yoga or some spiritual practice, it may be time to begin. You might need to stop meditating for a while if it increases unpleasant Kundalini awakening symptoms. See what increases or decreases the unpleasant effects.

7) Practice grounding. Kundalini is most difficult when the energy is moving upward without enough energy moving downward to balance. Investigate the possibility of the first chakra issues that need to be resolved in order to give a firmer base.Practice grounding exercise daily.
