Biology of Kundalini A Science and Protocol of Spiritual Alchemy    

Towards a Fuller Understanding of Kundalini

A personal view

KUNDALINI - (Sanskrit kund, "to burn"; kunda, "to coil or to spiral") a concentrated field of intelligent, cosmic invisible energy absolutely vital to life; beginning in the base of the spine when a man or woman begins to evolve as wisdom is earned. Kundalini has been described as liquid fire and liquid light. The ultimate outcome of kundalini is the union of Will (sakti- kundalini), Knowledge {prana-kundalini) and Action (para- kundalini)

Musings on the Caduceus

Interestingly the word pineal stems from the word pineus for pinecone although the pineal gland is about the size of a grain of rice. The Thyrsus is a staff tipped with a pinecone and twined with ivy, carried by Dionysus, his revelers, and satyrs. Dionysus represents the God of the metamorphic process of spiritual death and rebirth; the most mysterious human experience ever to be encountered. Dionysus must have been the first God of Kundalini for he carries a Thyrsus. Whether it signifies the pineal gland or not, it is obvious that the pinecone represents the "flowering" of consciousness. The pinecone is reminiscent of the thousand petalled crown chakra--the Sahasrara, and the ivy represents the double-helical flow of kundalini around the central channel of the spine--the sushumna. This symbol is perhaps a more ancient version of the staff of Hermes--the Caduceus, which used in alchemical and esoteric schools and now the medical industry.

An occult description of the Caduceus of Hermes (Mercury) is that the serpents represent positive and negative charges of kundalini as it moves through the chakras and around the spine (the staff) to the head where conscious perception occurs, the domain of Mercury the messenger. The wings of Hermes represent consciousness or Spirit. The "flow" signifies consciousness and perception--for no flow, means no lifeforce. Spiritual evolution is an ever increasing relationship with the neutral ground between the play of opposites. The Trinity is also observable in the caduceus: the helix is the Son (matter), the staff is the Father (zero-point ground) and the wings are the Holy Ghost (tangible perception of spirit).

The staff is analogous of the stiffened spine when kundalini passes through the central channel, but it can also represent zero-point, the neutral ground between the orgonotic superimposition of the positive and negative charges. Cosmic superimposition being the mutual merger of two opposing energy streams; thus you could say its the place where the male and female become one. This neutral zone (staff) only comes into being through the dance of the poles/sexes/hemispheres. The "appearance" of matter, energy and Mind from the Void is generated from this dance. (see more on this in Biological Relation To Zero-Point Energy.)

I have worked out a preliminary protocol to support the fire of kundalini without getting fried and to prevent the years of depression-like fallout that often happens after an awakening. As the science of kundalini progresses such a protocol for adaptation or higher homeostasis will be refined and expanded. Till then, please be aware dear reader that this is an experimental book, the research that will give us the definitive answers to this mystery has yet to be done. In the past we have had no scientific understanding as to what was actually happening to us during kundalini. Now in with modern science we can begin to understand what is really going on.

Whether it be from a spontaneous awakening, the result of spiritual practice (sadhana) or through Shaktipat from a Guru, metamorphosis tends to be such an overwhelming cataclysmic process that the more knowledge and tools for the road we have the better. What we really need to do if we are going to submit to our own evolution, is to strengthen ourselves to be able to endure the all-consuming flame of spirit. My aim in writing this book is to help others to support their chemistry so an awakening can be sustained rather than go wildly up and down. For in my experience after a full-on six month kundalini peak it takes about five years to recover.

One can see in each of us going through this phenomena, that it is transpersonal, archetypal and trans-anthropomorphic. Though in its insidious omnipresence it is intensely personal and specific, especially crafted to our own unique needs and condition. Kundalini works with whatever we have built ourselves to be. Whatever our encrustations and blocks, the fire in perfect equanimity uses everything good and bad to fuel the flame of consciousness.
