Can kundalini awakening lead to cold shivers through the heart region?

I have already experienced lunacy through faulty yoga practises 10 years ago. (manic, extremely joyful state, voices, visions etc). Now I feel these cold heart shivers and no joy at all like I’m in a black pit with foggy brain.

How can I rectify it if is caused by kundalini?
its like all the finer feelings have left me for good
I learnt all yoga from a book, never done it in a group with a teacher. I practised Uddiyana bandha and mula bandha and headstands and pranayama while being in a passionate, impatient state and smoking. I was meditating once and lost myself totally and became one with the birds I was hearing. I also had a dream where I was taunting this girl I was obsessed with at work and she turned round and had eyes like medusa, full of fire. When I woke i looked under the sheets and sparks were coming out of my solar plexus area, lighting up the darkness- Is this something to do with kundalini affecting that chakra?
I have not done any yoga for a number of years due to these effects.
Here is a warning for people taking up this practise

all forms of yoga, including kundalini, are forms of intense physical exercise which also “open up” the mind because while one is doing these exercises, the brain and body release what ever chemicals they release which cause the body to be come relaxed. that is all. a long time ago, people started playing around with their bodies, testing the physical limits of their bodies and experimenting with different positions and exercises just to see how far they could push them selves and what would happen if they did. some people probably had a knack for this and it came naturally… Read more »

You know, it is always wise to follow through with as much dedication and knowledge as is available when one opens the gates to ones’ spiritual consciousness….. to experience some the various states you described can be side effects of the ‘design’ of the rising Kundalini…the psychic channels are opened, and what is released are all of the stored self~judgments that bring us back lifetime after lifetime….this can be overwhelming, and so it is wise to have a Guru, a Master with whom you have developed great trust, respect, and hopefully love. One who understands these things, and can guide… Read more »

Unfortunately this sounds too much like the common yuppie practice of finding out a small fraction of a discipline, then writing a how to book on it. I firmly believe that those who can do, and those who can’t become yuppies and write a book about how to do it… But that is My Truth, and may differ from Your Truth! ME! PS Coyote would be correct if he had said, “Done correctly” .How best to make my point… look to the old Science Fiction movie, “Forbidden Planet” and remember that the creatures from the ID are there just waiting… Read more »

Your excellency, You are practicing wrongly. this is the reason, why we all always say one to practice Injunctions. You are in a state, where the limited terms of this world will not “Entertain” you and will not “Inspire” you. Because you have not prepared yourself for it. Thats why you should Follow Injunctions and Desires should be left ( does not mean you should leave desires, but desire should No More have the capability to affect you , if it is not fulfilled or otherwise ) also, you should nicely know the three modes and and you should gain… Read more »

Go find a good yoga teacher to fix it. Messing with it can cause fits.

Are you in the hands of a proper Kundalini Yoga teacher? If you aren’t and you are self teaching, Stop It! Kundalini is powerful, dangerous stuff if you don’t REALLY know what you’re up to. I am not a teacher, but I have access to one. If you really are doing this stuff without proper instruction, drop me an email and I’ll see if my teacher knows how to help. EDIT, Sorry but I must disagree with the learned Coyote here. Too many people have been hurt by improper practice. Kundalini practice without proper instruction can damage you. EDIT. Can… Read more »

Kundalini is not dangerous, it is impossible for it to travel any further than what you are ready for. Kundalini is not some outside force but animates all things, watch. : ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzsSwCANluw There is one energy that keeps taking on new shapes and forms. In Tantra the name of that energy is Shakti, which is the manifesting, or feminine force that is actually one and the same with its only apparent companion Shiva, the latent, or masculine. Each time the energy takes on a new form, we give it a new name. Shakti becomes Kundalini Shakti, or simply Kundalini.… Read more »

all of these sound like symptoms of severe mental illness, which if you’ve been manic and delusional (as it sounds) then you are probably already familiar with.
You don’t need to look any further than that.
