possible taste of kundalini?

i bought a shakti mat yesterday and tried it out. i couldnt stay on it for very long, and i tried many times. the reason was not because it was painful, but because when i lied down this psycho amount of energy down in my groin would quickly build up and it felt like it wanted to explode out of my body. when i got up, it would slowly fade away after a couple of minutes. i wondered if this was maybe the kundalini energy?

update: on the kundalini wikipedia page it says kundalini is "a corporeal energy - an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or *Shakti*, envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine"
it looks like i might be on to something =)


  1. More likely to be the effect of increased blood flow that the mat encourages.

    Keep at it - you will eventually fall asleep on it - believe it or not.

    You can get some good meditations specially written for the mat at -

    All the best..>Sam

  2. thanks Sam! i finally got through this intense energy by first asking god for the will power to keep myself on the mat and then employing pranayama after i lied down. i was able to stay on the mat for maybe 20 minutes or more! ill have to try those meditations next time. i looked at my back and butt in the mirror afterwards and they were pretty red and all those tiny holes actually looked and felt kind of cool =)
