Many people are fascinated by kundalini for its many health and spiritual benefits. It is known that the energy improves health, promotes longevity and gives paranormal gifts like ESP, the ability to see auras and angels, etc.
For those who actually experience a kundalini awakening, they often do receive these benefits ; however, what they are most often faced with is the profound clearing of negative energy that can take place over a long period of time—energy that often is released with uncomfortable physical accompaniments of “clearing” through bodily processes such as loose bowel movements, nose and chest congestion, headaches, and a host of other discomforts that may last a brief or a significantly long amount of time.
While you are undergoing such a clearing, you may think you have come down with the flu or have caught a cold. One way to tell this isn’t so is that you actually don’t look sick! Quite the contrary, you may have a glowing look of health as the body actually rids itself of the negative energy that has been held in memory in the body’s cells. While you feel off, a good thing is actually happening in your body.
In my experience, at times like this, one should not take the usual stomach, cold or flu medications for these events—this will only add to the substances the body will need to discharge. It is important to drink plenty of healthy fluids such as water to help with the clearing and try to take it easy by not adding any unnecessary physical activities. I have found that essential oils and herbs may help ease the symptoms a bit.
What are some other ways to know you are experiencing a clearing and not a cold?
Because so few people in the medical profession understand kundalini, most people with kundalini clearing symptoms will be diagnosed with a cold or the flu, and the usual medications will be prescribed. Here, the person with the symptoms has to make the final call as to what is actually happening to him or her and decide how to use the medication and if it really helps. Sometimes, I have found that the medication doesn’t actually work because a cold isn’t what is causing the problem. While not wanting to challenge the authority of the medical profession, fortunately, there are other ways to get accurate information on a phenomenon not usually recognized by the health professions. Dreams and insights obtained from intuitive meditation can give you the correct diagnosis, especially if you have learned to trust these avenues of information. For example, if you have dreams of needing to use the restroom, this is a clear sign you have negative energy that needs to be released. Also, asking for a dream to give a specific diagnosis to your ailment is possible. Just make the prayer or intention to have such a dream before you go to bed. Or before you enter meditation, ask for inspiration that will provide the answers you need. You may be surprised how helpful your dreams and insights can be!
