Kundalini Musings (Life Force Books, 2018) is a compendium of kundalini knowledge and experience, consisting of 82 essays written over the past seven years. Each essay has been edited and updated to reflect the latest findings across a broad spectrum of kundalini research — a wide assortment of kundalini-related topics and writings under one cover, all of JJ Semple’s 40 plus years of kundalini experience contained in this one book. There’s more to kundalini than the usual bromides about dormant energy at the base of the spine.< "Kundalini is never dormant! Kundalini is the biological life force energy in your body; it functions in two quite different states. In its creative state, it’s known as Kundalini Shakti — creative in the sense that it shapes your very substance in the womb. After birth, it works in the background as Prana Shakti, the maintenance state of kundalini.
“And unless it reactivates involuntarily or you reactivate it intentionally through the practice of a reliable method like Golden Flower Meditation (GFM), it remains in the background throughout your life. Think of it as a racing car that’s idling; the motor’s turning, but it’s not going anywhere. And yet, it manages your body’s autonomic functions: cell division, breathing, blood flow, digestion — without you’re being aware of it or appreciating it. Like a computer routine that works in the background, it’s there. If it stopped working altogether, you’d be dead.”
Kundalini was first discovered by the ancients during religious or ceremonial practices — before organized science existed. It has retained its religious origins or roots; it is still part of some religious practices. For example, meditation — an integral part of some religions — can induce kundalini safely and permanently.
Nevertheless, more and more people now acknowledge the awakened kundalini as a science with its own anatomical, physiological, and embryological actualities. Why? People have realized that kundalini is a biological process, not a belief system.
If you’re a Buddhist, you can be converted to another belief system. You can change your mind and become a Christian or a Jew. You cannot be converted to kundalini any more than you can be converted to an orgasm or a heart attack. They are biological processes, not cults or belief systems. You don’t “believe” in the physiological channels, chakras, nadis, or energy centers known to kundalini adepts. They are fact. Someday, science will acknowledge this, just as a growing number of people who’ve awakened kundalini have.
Moreover, because it’s a science, kundalini is not about bliss states, even though a kundalini awakening often induces behavioral states, not dissimilar to religious ecstasy. I believe this is due to the fact that kundalini opens up vistas of higher consciousness that most people never experience — states which are so breathtaking and so different from “normal” consciousness that people tend to believe they’ve been catapulted into a kind of wonderland or Oz.
This book has a single unifying factor — kundalini. It’s my hope that the knowledge and experience I’ve gained helps you avoid some of the pitfalls and challenges connected to arousing and living with this evolutionary energy.
