It's not "just" energy. Energy is the motion which makes things turn.
Honestly, no offense to you, but there are so many ignorant and idiotic new age knaves who write about psychological matters like "kundalini" who
haven't got an inkling of how dangerous it can be.
This probably has to do with a mixture of arrogance and ignorance. Arrogance in thinking they know all there is to be known, and ignorant/foolish, in
not realizing or even recognizing relevant information when the come into contact with it.
As I said in this thread already - KUNDALINI CAN BE EXTRAORDINARILY DANGEROUS. Every new age site which recommends this practice without putting in
very bold letters, as a disclaimer: If you have any unresolved trauma, kundalini can be dangerous, should be SUED.
Autonomic "blockages" in energy flow related to a past unresolved trauma is the basic reason why energy practices can induce massive sympathetic
arousal, enormous dysregulation within the nervous system, will aggravate existing neuroses (any particular obsession/fixation the person may deal
Why is that? Because the trauma has not be resolved. The autonomic nervous system keeps the physiological markers alive in the body. Introducing more
"energy" into the organism does not fix it. Fixing unresolved trauma requires cognitive processing i.e. understanding of the event, in order to create
alignment within the organisms cortical, limbic and autonomic processes.
So, playing around with kundalini yoga, if you have any unresolved trauma, will likely result in a serious nervous breakdown. It's basic cause and
Just so this becomes clear. What is a common response to trauma? Dissociation. What is dissociation? A "turning away" from embodied experience. Why?
Because the hyper-arousal of the originating trauma overwhelms the nervous system/conscious mind. The response is inhibiting cortical-autonomic
connection, which means a massive reduction in bodily feeling, emotional sensation i.e. a serious reduction in energy within the organism.
You introduce kundalini type energy into such a person? Trust me. It's not a joke. A nervous breakdown will ensue in such an individual.
