اصولا کسانی دنبال خوندن این کتاب ها هستن که نیاز به آگاهی بیشتر نسبت به خودشون و دنیا رو در خودشون دارند و فکر کردن به سوالات بیشمارشون تمام فکرشون رو پر کرده و برای رسیدن به جواب راه روشن بینی و بیداری کندالینی رو انتخاب میکنند و چون قبلا تجربه ای کوچک از اون داشتن به دنبال ادامه ی این مسیر این کتاب هارو پیدا میکنند و یا با اساتیدی حقیقی ملاقات کرده و از راهنمایی اونها استفاده میکنند. بیداری کندالینی یک تخیل یا بازی موقت نیست یک پنجره به سوی ابعاد روحانی و پیوند یافتن با انرژی خالق یا همان خداس ...more

This is a rather frustrating book.
Frustrating in the fact that Paulson clearly thinks anyone who picks this up will have an advanced degree in both Kundalini and chakras.
Only, it did not start off this way. She begins this quite brilliantly actually. She walks you though the process and builds off what she has already established quite well. And knowing that she is a teacher of this, this makes a grand amount of sense.
Then somewhere in the 5th or 6th chapter she goes completely off the rails. I

I had never been exposed to understandable information about kundalini energy before this book. I had heard about it in passing, for example, in yoga class "this position opens up the kundalini energies more than this other pose that we just practiced." Or in meditation class, "prepare yourself for the feeling of rising energy, it may be overwhelming, but if you keep breathing and focusing your mind, it will change or fade away" But, neither of these outlets explained what on earth this energy w ...more

It was good. My acupuncturist told me it sounds like I've been going through a Kundalini awakening recently, and I am both weird enough and have experienced enough weird shit to give it a shot with a reasonably open mind.

I'm always skeptical with stuff like this, which is kind of annoying because I've experienced so much of it. When does the doubt go away?

This book gave me a lot of practical types for letting energy flow through me. Helping me keep calm when the experiences feel overwhelming. Aw

It was ok, but not what I was expecting...or looking for rather.

It does have a lot of information which is very detailed. Lots of exercises as well.

In the book, Kundalini and Chakras by Genevieve Lewis Paulson, she explains the process of exerting kundalini throughout ones body. She also discusses different chakra releases and how to heal the body using said kundalini. In the beginning of the book she gives a brief history as to what kundalini is. Kundalini translates to “circular power” and is an individual’s “basic evolutionary force”. (3) Paulson then explains how it is a natural force anyone can

I'm putting this book aside for now. Found it interesting in the beginning chapters, especially regarding the chakra system and their functions/attributes; but got muddled on how I should proceed in the exercises. Never took a class in kundalini practice, so I found it hard to follow in later chapters. Additionally, the warnings on unsupervised voluntary release (Chapter 15) made me feel a little apprehensive on starting this process. I think I'll just continue my yoga practice and meditation fo ...more

"Depression means something is being 'dug up' for you to look at." This is a memorable line from the book.

Having our Kundalini activated is indeed a wonderful & insightful experience, but it has its other side, just like any other blessing. This book came to my attention just in time to help me understand & remind me of that painful side. It offers simple exercises to cope with the problems we may encounter like depression. Helpful & inspiring read esp. the first & last part, but have to skip so

Just finished, it was a decent read. I enjoyed the section on karma. Unfortunately, this book offers a few practical exercises. Obviously, the completion of such would affect the value of this book, dependent on results. I would not recommend this book to someone who is not wellread or at least previously introduced to the concept of kundalini. However, that does not change the fact that Genevieve Paulson has offered a plethora of growth to the reader.

Lots of interesting information, but no clear path to work through. Also, some of the exercises were not clearly explained.

Great book, it explains many things about the Chakra evolution. Many A-haaaa moments.

Very strange. Over my head. Maybe someday if I decide to gather more knowledge in the area this will open up but with my elementary knowledge this was mystifying.
