If you look on the internet there are many images of mudras. I have experienced many mudras naturally due to Guru’s grace. Throughout time they would change. Now it only happens if it is needed(like when I am with devotees) and the appropriate one would come accordingly. Sometimes certain knowledge can only be shared with others who are meditating. Also if you are not awakened you will not understand some of this.
Someone wanted a photo so I posed in this one. Here I made this drawing of some of the energy dynamics of this mudra. Both hands are part of the mudra. One hand is somewhat sideways and the the other is in the abhaya or blessing mudra(as it is referred to). Here the natural cosmic energy is entering my left hand and going into the body and then energy is leaving through the right hand. This is why this is a blessing mudra. It is a complete balance of energy and very grounded. I have drawn that long energy spike through the head to illustrate the ascending energy that is my natural feeling or state and it is one of the reasons I tie my head. In my natural state then the Goddess energy is coming out through my eyes and hand and feet etc. This has a good effect on the plants, one’s surroundings or the people that come around and hang with me. There are more dynamics to how one feels the energy running but that is for mediators.
Water is called steam when it’s boiling and ice when it’s freezing. In a way you could say that the water is in different states. So to understand kundalini (Shakti)think of it as – as it rises it takes the being into different states and so we call her Divine mother or Goddess but that is according to the state of the being. The person is called advanced yogi, Satguru, enlightened, avatar, Maa etc after yoga or union sometimes referred to as the union of Energy(Shakti) with consciousness(Shiva). Hence the many different names. So some people call the Shakti itself Divine mother. One cannot call her kundalini any more because of finished purification and merging. She brings sacredness to one. She is sacred from the beginning so when everyone says “my kundalini is awakened” and does not look at this with sacredness or reverence then it takes longer to rise and the process harder and slower. Also slow if one has a lot of karma to burn. One has to change their diet and lifestyle. By looking at it with reverence and working under the tutelage of a true Sat-Guru the process becomes easier and one moves on the “fast train”. There must be love for the Guru also.
This force is present in all humans but it lays asleep but when it awakens then it rises taking the being back to his whole self or (back to God some might say). This Shakti is responsible for all religious experiences in all religions and is known by different names. It is in ancient India that this science was studied in dept and now many people are starting to understand the awakened force within them. One can say while she is asleep she is responsible for life. She enables you to breathe and live and evolve. In this state you could say this energy is called Prana and sometimes referred to a chi. So everyone can feel energy and some may see auras. When Kundalini is awake it is very dynamic and it feels very different. I think now some psychologist know a little about it. Some have classified kundalini as a kind of Prana. She is a remnant of your individual creation(microcosm) but she is also the Cosmic creator in a macrocosmic way. I know you probably got lost here (especially if you are not meditating)but I cannot explain more than this here.
I have to add the following. Now that we have cell phones and other technology then these travel in atmosphere also. These are artificial waves or frequency that are interrupting the natural cosmic waves of the universe(that I drew entering entering my hand). When we go out in nature where there is no strong signal then we feel the best. At the subtle level it is interfering with my nervous system. I am just sensitive so I feel it but others may not. As a result I don’t carry a phone pass the IPhone 7. These artificial waves pass through the buildings and the bodies, vegetation and animals. We will not know the long term effects. I know it will cause more stomach and indigestion problems and maybe headaches. More people will begin feeling anxious and will think it is the current situation on the planet, but this is an additional fuel to the fire. When people are anxious what do they do? They act out causing further escalation in all aspects of life. Anyways, will this have affect on sperms and eggs in the human? How is affecting the animals and plants? Will it have an effect on the food we eat causing problems of low birth rate and will everyone be on acid reflux medicine? Only time will tell.
We as a human race have to understand that we are part of this creation and everything we do eventually affects each other and all the other living things. We cannot fight mother nature, we cannot create an artificial world, we cannot live in some “illusionary metaverse.” We must have reverence. We can all be wiped out at any time.
