Questions about Kundalini and Hatha Yoga ?

Recently I became spiritually conscious while on LSD. I now practice meditation and Hatha Yoga daily. A few days ago I read in a book about Chakras that many people have had particularly devastating experiences in their spiritual practice involving Kundalini. I didn’t have any idea what Kundalini was before I read this book, and now after reading these horror stories I’m wondering if I will be in any danger of a similar fate. I am 19 years old, and since I’m just starting on this path I assume I am far from having any issues but I’d like some advice or reassurance. I’d like to know that I can meditate and do yoga without fear of psychosis or manic depression… Thank you, I greatly appreciate it.

In today’s world there are plenty of half backed gurus out there and some even get published. This is not to say not to read, read, and read. A good book to understand what Kundalini is out of print but can be… Read more »

Kundalini is not dangerous. It is what your physical body is, what all the material universe is and it can rise no higher into your consciousness than what you are ready for.

I think people who get depressed from meditation are having a problem handling reality. Be accepting and you should be fine. Don’t hold on to what you want things to be.
