blossom. Keep visualizing the energy rising up and piercing each chakra. As the chakra is pierced the lotus flower turns upwards and blossoms in its full glory. Visualize the candle flame after piercing the agnya chakra has merged in the ocean of pure consciousness. At that moment feel that all dualities have disappeared, you have lost consciousness of the body, time and space. You are one with everything, in fact you are everything. Hold on to this blissful experience for a minute.

Now visualize the kundalini energy again re-appearing from the ocean of pure consciousness and traveling down the sushumna going back to its seat at the mooladhara chakra. As the kundalini descends the chakras revert back to their drooping position.  

Repeat the practice 3 to 5 times.  

Kundalini experiences can happen spontaneously, where you simply seem to fall into the release of this energy quite by chance. To experience the surges of energy in the upper chakras when that is what you are trying to do is one thing but it is quite the other when one has no preparation or training to handle the awakened energy. Most often when people talk about it is problematic; crazy energy rushes, twitches, heat, anxiety attacks. These are all clues the energy is not balanced. You can open up to a higher chakra experience even if you are unbalance in the lower, but you cannot sustain that level. The needs of the unbalanced lower chakra will pull you down to satisfy those needs.

Signs of awakened Kundalini

When you feel strong currents of prana rising up the spine. All day and night you feel within your body some intense activity of prana. Even during sleep you feel currents of prana rising up in your sahasrara and even in dreams you experience her presence, know that the joy inspiring kundalini has come into action 

When throbbing of mooladhara begins, the whole body shakes or trembles, involuntary retention of breath takes place or there is spontaneous forceful breathing. Know then, that kundalini has awakened. You should then give up your conscious control and allow happening what happens. 

When hair stands on roots, you laugh or weep without your wishing, you are filled with fear or see frightening visions, semen passes out involuntarily, know that the kundalini shakti has become active. 

When you feel that some higher power has taken possession of your body and under that influence automatic movements of the body takes place or different postures of yoga are involuntarily performed without the least pain or fatigue and you feel increasingly buoyant, know that the kundalini has come into action.  

When your posture becomes fixed, uddiyana, jalandhara, and moola bandhas come involuntarily, your tongue reverts back or rises up towards the soft palate in khechari mudra or your eyes gets fixed at the eye-brow center shambhavi mudra, know that the kundalini has come into action.
