As Kundalini energy transfers through the body several issues, even pain, can arise in chakra areas.  Usually an individual who has activated kundalini has not prepared themselves in the ways endorsed in traditional kundalini yoga.  Some classifications say 12 years of dedicated preparation is required formerly the energy is awakened if all is to move smoothly, and this is done through physical cleansing practices, strict diet requirements, gradually adding more advanced breathing practices, sitting in specific yogic styles, and freeing various egoic predispositions through compliance to the teacher and system. It is clear that 99% of those who activate this energy have not done these kinds of provisions and are not interested in doing them. Himalayan Holistic Yoga invites all inspiring students to join Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training India and awaken the energy.

One essential be patient and take time to address old psychological issues and to adjust their life to the new patterns the kundalini energy is calling for.  So, when there is pain in the body that doctors find no reason for or heat rising, or strange blockages where energy seems to be stuck this is because some clearing is desired since it was not done before the awakening.  Some spiritual seekers believe that an awakening will erase all past psychological issues, but if this should happen it is only temporary. Some old beliefs, preferences and habits will fall away or transform, but deeper issues will then come to the surface, and the energy must return to clear the blocks that were created by these experiences.  

This is the area of vishuddha, the throat chakra. There are several opportunities for this kind of pain.  Energy is often blocked here since most of us spend a lot of time holding back our self-expression or our emotions. It’s as if everything unsaid is locked into our subtle energy field.  Sometimes spiritual seekers believe they should never feel anger, and so when something outrageous happens to them they swallow their feelings in order to be “spiritual” and forgiving.  I met one person who seemed to have tourette’s symptoms as his face jerked spontaneously, but once he released anger these problems went away.  One does not need to act out the anger, but simply find a safe way to move it out of the body through expression by yelling (at no one) or writing and just fully acknowledging it.

Another reason for pain may be an old injury that has been locked in the system and needs to be released.  Kundalini seems to be trying to remove anything tight or damaged in the body. Some call these blocks. Wherever your energy seems stuck and keeps returning to with jerks or discomfort over and over is generally seen as a block, caused by physical or emotional holding from issues in this life or possibly a previous life.  Sometimes it is even an issue related to your birthing experience, or your mothers experience when you were in the womb. Also a stiff neck may be caused by the way it has been held for years, and gentle body work can help to open it.  Cranial-sacral work or acupressure might be useful. 

In yoga there are 3 major “granthis” or “knots” in the body which must be out in this process. These are supposed to be points where the power of inexperience and attachment is principally strong.  One is in the solar plexis area, where we are attached to pleasure, material things, and having things go our own way; the second is in the heart area where we are attached to our emotions, certain people, our personal visions and passions; the third is in the the third eye area where a person may open and then convert friendly to psychic powers and quality them to their personal identity.
