Here are two important readings on preparation and raising of the kundalini.They are questions and answers:
“Q: Through my meditation, has the kundalini fire risen to the head or topof spine at base of skull? A: It has risen at times, but has not remained; elsethere would not be those periods of confusion. For, when this has arisen and isdisseminated properly through the seven centers of the body, it has purifiedthe body....”
“问：在我的冥想中，昆达里尼之火(拙火) 升至头部还是脊椎顶的脑基部位？答：有时是升起了，但没有保持住；否则就不会有困惑。因为当(拙火) 升起并正确地分布于身体的七个中心，就会净化身体…”
“Q: How may I bring into activity my pineal and pituitary glands, as well asthe kundalini and other chakras, that I may attain to higher mental andspiritual powers? A: First so fill the mind with the ideal that it may vibratethroughout the whole of the mental being! Then, close the desires of thefleshly self to conditions about you. Meditate upon ‘Thy will WITH me.’ Feelthis. FILL all the centers of the body, from the lowest to the highest, withthis ideal; opening the centers by surrounding self first with thatconsciousness, ‘Not my will but Thine, O Lord, be done in and through me.’ Andthen, have that desire, that purpose, of not attaining without HIS direction --who is the Maker, the Giver of life and light; as it is indeed in Him that welive and move and have our being.”
“问：我如何激活我的松果腺和脑下垂腺，还有拙火及其它脉轮，使得我能有更高的心智和灵性能力？答：首先使思想中的理想的振动弥漫于整个心智体！然后将身体的所有欲望屏弃至只有理想存在。对“你的意愿与我同在” 进行冥想；感觉它，让这种理想充满身体里从下到上的所有中心; 通过将自我置放在这种意识的环绕下开方自己的中心：非吾之意愿，主啊，而是祢的旨意，由吾或经由吾完成。然后不要持有任何没有祂的指示的愿望和目的。一定要有祂的指导：祂是缔造者，是生命和光的给予者，在祂中我们活着、运动着、有了存在。”
You get Cayce’s major idea in these readings. He teaches us to prepare toraise the spiritual forces in the body by setting and feeling a powerful,fully-penetrating ideal of God’s will, rather than our will, and to feel God’sdirection throughout the whole of our being as we open the centers and raisethe energy. As he said in an earlier reading, “There is nothing to be fearfulof, but keep the emotions better balanced.” So many people that I’ve talkedwith over the years of teaching meditation have expressed their fear of raisingthe kundalini and opening their spiritual centers. The teaching is: don’t raiseand open by yourself! That is rightly fearful. But do get in there and attuneself to God’s presence and then, in His/Her presence, open and allow thespiritual forces to flow. Here’s a wonderful reading on this:
“Indeed it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Yet,they that love His coming, they that walk in the cool of the evening, in theshadow of His precepts, shall be awakened to the great truth....”
Are there dangers? Yes. But most of them are before us always. As Caycepoints out: “Yourself is your greatest weakness, as yourself is your greateststrength.” If we seek to become fully conscious of God and one with God, thenwe have to get to work on cleansing, raising, and living the love and lightthat is God and on with controlling our willful, self-seeking desires. “Withthe opening of yourself to the vibrations, the emanations, you may be temptedby the desires of the flesh; yes, of the spirit of untruth. But hold fast tothat light which is your assurance of His presence with you!”
这危险吗？是的。但我们总是在面对这些。凯西指出过：“你自我是自己的最多大弱点，同时也是你最大力量所在。” 如果我们寻求完全的上帝的意识，与神合一，那么我们必须要通过控制自主的、自我朝向的欲望，着手于纯洁、提升、活出神的爱和光。“随着将自我开放于(灵性) 振动和传播，你会为肉体欲望所探试---是的，为无常之灵所探试。要紧盯那光---你与祂同在的保证。”
After imbuing ourselves with the ideal of “God’s will be done,” Cayceinstructs us to get our bodies in order: properly assimilating nutrients neededto maintain high levels of life and eliminating wastes and toxins that build upin the system. He also directs us to exercise, even if it is just walking amile after dinner, and to get massages and adjustments to keep the fluids andelectrical energies flowing smoothly through the whole of our system. Hespecifically identifies three points along our spines through which there isthe activity of “the kundalini forces that act as suggestions to the spiritualforces for distribution through the seven centers of the body.” They are amongthe vertebrae and ganglia of the spine: 3rd cervical, 9th thoracic, and 4thlumbar. These need to be kept limber, open, and flowing. Get them massaged andadjusted, and do daily exercises to keep them fluid.
在将我们沉浸于“完成神的意旨” 的理想中后，凯西让我们将身体调整好：正确的吸收需要的营养以维持高水平的生命；排除滞留在身体系统里的废物和渣滓。他也讲到身体锻练，简单的如晚饭后走几里路，或者接受按摩和调整，使得体液和能量顺畅流经整个身体。他特别提到沿着脊椎的三个点，这三个点的功用是“灵性力量通过生命之力散播至身体的七个中心。” 它们是：第三颈椎、第九胸椎、第四腰椎。这些部位需要保持柔软、开放和流畅。按摩、调整和每天练习非常有益。
So important is the body’s condition that in some cases he actuallyrecommended not practicing deep meditation until the body’s health improved.
There are many other activities one can do in preparation for entering intothe temple and meeting God. Each of us should study and research them on ourown and select what works for us. See the meditation section of this web site.I go into more detail on these in chapters two through five of my bookSpiritual Breakthrough: Handbook to God-Consciousness.
