I will start with a little religious background before beginning my story. I was raised an evangelical Christian and my grandfather was a preacher. My family was very hellfire and damnation minded, to the point where we couldn't even watch Harry Potter since it would make us devil worshipers.
When I grew into an adult, I was already breaking away from the religion and had it more or less as an insurance policy in case I died and there was a chance it was true.
My whole world changed in 2004.
In December of 2004, I was involved in a really bad car accident in which there was a fatality. When the accident occurred, I was almost ejected and holding on for my life, and I remember time going very slow. I prayed to Jesus to please forgive me for my sins so I wouldn't go to hell. I then realized that I was wrong; I suddenly didn't really believe that one could be forgiven just by saying a magic line. I realized that my insurance policy with religion was a fallacy. This was the most miserable moment of my life, but luckily the car stopped flipping and I survived without a scratch.
For about 4 years after the accident I went through a process of dropping my faith and becoming an Atheist. I was pretty sure that there was nothing, but one day I decided to have one last big HUGE prayer. I don't know why really, but I felt compelled to.
I prayed to "god" or the universe or what-have you, to show me the truth. I told "god" that if there really was something more, then this was the time to show me. I prayed and tears rained down my face. I begged and pleaded for the truth because I just could not believe man's doctrine or religions anymore. It seemed very contradictory and hypocritical. I prayed for something tangible. I prayed for truth. I told "god" I was ready for the ultimate truth, whatever it was.
A few days after that, I began having energy rushes through my body and having astral projection experiences. I remember in one of them this man was standing in the corner of the room and chuckled and said, "Looks like you reached what you were searching for and then some."
Some few weeks after that is when I had my spontaneous Kundalini rising. I was laying in bed and suddenly this electric energy ball shot out the base of my spine and swirled around my spine zapping every last chakra up to my head. When it went up my head it was the most painful sensation I have ever encountered. It felt like every cell of my head was being ripped apart. Then it went back down and rose up again, over and over. (Mind you, I had no idea what chakras were during this time, as I thought they were simply symbolism hah!)
Eventually my tongue went up to the roof of my mouth and the zapping turned into a roaring volcano of energy. I was immersed in this massive energy waterfall that was myself. It is hard to describe, but it was intense.
I eventually stopped having the experience and went about my day. I could hear men chanting in the background. I thought the radios were on in other peoples homes, but then I realized that it was impossible. I then looked up what exactly happened and I found out about Kundalini.
2 years later, I am still having experiences. My entire life has changed in so many ways that I cannot even believe the person I am today. I cannot even begin to describe all that this awakening has entailed in only 2 years, as I would need a novel in which to place all the words. All I can say was that even through the scary parts of the process, I have been liberated in ways I have only fantasized about. I am now used to the tactile sensations on a daily basis, and feel so blessed that my prayer was answered. I have also found a true connection to Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad, Krishna, Shiva... You name it. I went from an Atheist, to someone whom loves ALL religions.
I have found I can actually start Kundalini awakenings in other people just by touching their lower backs, but have decided to stop doing that until I am further in my process and know what I am doing. That is, unless someone comes directly to me and asks randomly, in which case I will do it for them for FREE.
I know there is a lot of fear and so called "rules" from the "ancient" eastern side of this, but it is a bunch of outdated misinformation. The Kundalini is not for the "pure" or people who can run off to an ashram. Trust me, I was never even spiritual or did any yoga and it rose in me. I smoked and drank and did everything wrong from a "spiritual" perspective. Though I will admit, Kundalini has stopped me from drinking and smoking lol.
I have learned that you simply have to pray to "god" or the "universe" and ask with true and pure intentions and you will be answered.
Anyways, I just thought I would share this and maybe it will help someone. =)
