Dreams and Intuitive Meditation Can Monitor the Ebb and Flow of Kundalini Energy

In an earlier blog, Dreams Can Forecast a Kundalini Event, I wrote that dreams can foretell the oncoming of a kundalini event. While this is important to prepare the recipient for the significant life changes that will then take place on the spiritual, psychological and physical levels, I think an even greater service dreams can do is to monitor the ebb and flow of kundalini and give clues to how the energy is working in the body and what parts of the body are being affected—especially when the energy is strong and is making dramatic or frightening expressions, such as in repeated migraines, loose bowels or weird jerking actions.

As Patricia Garfield demonstrated in The Healing Power of Dreams, dreams can provide information on the stages of health such as the onset, expression and healing of a disease. After observation many dreams over a number of years, I found this observation can also be applied to the stages of kundalini and its ebbs and flow, allowing me to generally know what to expect from the energy. For example, a common dream that prepares me for a kundalini clearing indicating negative energy will soon be released is a dream of a need to use the bathroom. To illustrate, a short while back I knew I would be taking on additional work and study responsibilities. However, before that could happen, I had a dream that told me I had some kundalini clearing work to do.

Dream

I am sitting at a table backstage with my mother. I am waiting to go on stage in front of an audience. My mother tells me that before I go on stage, I need to go to the bathroom.

Shortly after this dream, I began a long period of strong clearing of negative energy. In addition to the ramp up of energy I felt on a daily basis, I experienced building migraines that released by sending energy and warmth throughout my body. Often these releases would be accompanied by strong but passing emotions of fear, anger or sadness.

Intuitive Meditation Can Also Be Useful for Monitoring Kundalini

I may also do an intuitive meditation if I want an immediate answer to what is causing a weird physical sensation. For example, I felt a curious pain on the left side of my head and decided to do an intuitive meditation to ask what was causing this. After settling in and connecting to my heart center, the vision of St. Michael the Archangel, a protecting and healing angel, appeared looking very much like the image above. It was an amazing shock but it did remind me of a powerful dream I had several years ago of an angel removing pieces of shit from the left side of my head by picking it out through my ear! Realizing what was going on, I then had the feeling I was in good hands and could relax into the process of letting the migraine do its work of releasing negative energy.

Symbols for Kundalini in Dreams: Volcanoes

A volcano is a symbol for kundalini in dreams.

A volcano about ready to erupt is a repeated symbol that appeared in my dreams before and after I had a kundalini release. It is not surprising that this symbol should show itself, given the power of a volcano to release energy deep from within the earth, spew content up to the heavens and have it rain down on everything. When kundalini is released it is often experienced as very strong energy erupting into consciousness through the pathway of the spine, going to the head and then descending to the rest of the body. In my case, after the initial rising of the energy, I generally experience kundalini as descending or falling from my head. The whole body becomes animated as the energy surges through it. Blocks to the flow of this energy within the body can cause uncomfortable and even painful sensations and unusual physical reactions such as itching, twitching or for some people, temporary paralysis.

Working with a Dream About a Volcano

Bearing in mind that dreaming of a volcano can mean many things, one has to ask what is going on—what energy is ready to explode in the life of the dreamer—that is manifesting such a power-laden dream. It could be long repressed anger or some other strong feeling. Or it could be some outside energy ready to explode such as growing quarrel between two people or it could even represent a real live volcano ready to erupt. Only the dreamer can know.

In my case, I had had a powerful kundalini release in July of 2007. Because of the enormous physical, emotional and psychological disruption shock this presented to me, I was placed on strong medications. As I came to fully understand what had happened, and that I wasn’t mentally ill, I realized I probably shouldn’t be on the meds. With advice from experts I eventually decided to get off the meds and let myself experience what the kundalini energy had to give me—with all its strong force. However, while still in the safe and relatively quiet stage of being on the drugs when I only felt intermittent and minor surges, I had the following dream in November of 2007:

I am in Hawaii. In the distance a volcano is sending up smoke and gas into the air. I am glad I don’t live near it. We have to go indoors as pieces of ash fall from the skies.

Because I live in Hawaii where there is an active volcano, I interpreted this dream to refer to my awareness of the periodic spewing of Kilauea crater that emits volcanic ash called vog. I was genuinely glad I didn’t live immediately downwind from the volcano since the vog puts a big coating of dust on everything and exacerbates respiratory problems. However, I also understood that the dream was making me aware of my feelings about handling the kundalini energy. The dream was reminding me that while the kundalini effects were suppressed by the medications, the energy was still there sending a bit of smoke and gas. Being glad that I didn’t live near the volcano told me I wasn’t ready to go off the meds. Going indoors meant retreating to the use of drugs to avoid serious effects that might “fall from the skies.”  As a result, I did not try to go off the meds then.  Eventually, I reached the point where I felt comfortable going off the drugs and successfully did so.
