Removal of Blockages: A Key To Exploring The Hidden Treasures Of The Mind

During a kundalini awakening, one of the most bizarre and surreal experiences is the snake moving through the spine. This is happening constantly. Not only does it move through the spine, it moves into the brain and constantly works on changing the physiology of your cranium.

Birds of a feather The interesting part, and one that gives you an idea of how the body/mind/spirit are all one, is how changing your brain changes your thought processes and how clearing blockages in your mind impacts the clarity of your thought processes. A lot of old, rigid ideas have to be discarded before the path of the chi energy is cleared and is allowed to flow through the nadis unimpeded.

What's interesting about the process is that initially it appears demonic to the person who thinks he is living in that body. The personality that takes the name and identifies with the education, cultural indoctrination, and accepted norms of "what should be" in terms of behavior in that society in that day and age. That person has to die. It is the repetitive inculcation of ideas that one parrots mindlessly, like an automaton, that grooves itself in the folds of the cerebrum and becomes you, your identity. It is a limiting mechanism. The limitations are the boundaries that lock you into a feeling of being bound within the confines of certain dos and donts of that individual and his social boundaries. We do it without even knowing we are bound by them.

When breaking these blockages, the energy has to remove your programming. The self, accustomed to the old ways, resists because taboos and restrictions built into the psyche make it seem absurd that the concepts so deeply ingrained are now being questioned and removed. Of course, once removed, it just opens up a vastly more liberating reality, but before removal, the conscious mind is reluctant to accept this because of the fear of the unknown.

Let me give you an example. Most of us have some form of religious taboo against sex. One does not visualize the enjoyment of the sex act as being congruous with attending mass or listening to a devotional or chanting of a mantra. In my mind, there was a distinct blockage that the energy was trying to clear and for that to happen, I had to break down the boundaries between the sacred and the profane. This involved having sex while listening to chants and mantras, right next to pictures of Gods and Goddesses.

I did it with feelings of shame, guilt and revulsion. Having done it, though, I overcame, once and for all, the feelings of guilt or shame and the triggers installed in me and became free of the invisible, totally manufactured boundaries between those two realms, things that were a result of my upbringing.

As a direct result of the removal of that blockage, it freed up the creative side of my right brain and gave me the ability to explore art and music as never before. How those two things were connected in my brain/mind, I as the conscious observer, have no clue. But once it was done, I no longer approached any of the things the energy was doing to me with fear or dread. I knew that to remove old programming was to remove fears and taboos. It wasn't about anything evil or demonic.

The idea of evil was a limitation put in place, a scare tactic. Its removal was only accomplished by facing the fear and transcending it. Once done, the blockage removed, many deeper levels of psyche, heretofore unexplored,
readily revealed themselves. The religious dogma had served only to keep them hidden.
