I have observed quite a few misconceptions about Kundalini. Some perceive that Kundalini is the magic bullet to enlightenment. Many arouse their Kundalini energy in the hopes finding the fast track to salvation and miracles. Some believe it will give them psychic abilities and supernatural powers. What I have observed is quite different.
I have discovered that Kundalini is not the magic bullet at all. This magic bullet is within each of us, and it is our intentions, efforts, and courage to heal our past emotional wounds that is the magic bullet. Let me explain. I have observed many with aroused Kundalini energy who are not enlightened or even in active recovery. They are still in their active illnesses with little or no healing having taken place.
I have observed others who have spent years in spiritual bypass, high-level denial or premature transcendence remaining stuck in their emotional recovery and spiritual healing. They still exhibit many behaviors and symptoms of their active illnesses. In addition to this, they have gained psychic abilities that they use in dysfunctional and harmful ways as they have not done the required emotional recovery or spiritual healing work, and they still operate through their false self or negative ego.
The consequence of taking a spiritual bypass are often active codependence or conflict, including: denial of their active illness; trying to control ourselves or others; all-or-nothing thinking and behaving; feeling fear, shame, or confusion; high tolerance for inappropriate behaviors; frustration; addiction, compulsion, and relapse; and unnecessary pain and suffering.
Those who develop psychic abilities who are still centered in their false self or negative ego may believe they are using their abilities for selfless service, but they actually can be projecting their own wishes or other issues onto others instead. Even sense of compassion can become confusing for those experiencing rapid spiritual growth. They can believe that they are suddenly needed by another, and this may become ego inflating.
As you can see, it is truly our own intentions, efforts, and courage to heal our past emotional wounds that is the magic bullet, and the arousal of Kundalini energy in itself cannot do this for us. In fact, we are likely to take the easy way out through spiritual bypass as we are not prepared to go down this dark and difficult road of emotional recovery and spiritual healing.
