As a psychotherapist I’ve always had an interest in the link between trauma, conditioning and our level of consciousness. I view the kundalini awakening process as an extension of my healing journey so the focus is primarily on embodiment rather than transcendence. In my case it was exploring my behavioural patterns, conditioned mind and emotional wounds that led into the spiritual realm. This is explored in the attached video featuring renowned trauma therapist Dr Peter Levine. He discusses the crossover between trauma, therapy and kundalini. I'm passionate about bringing awareness to this as I’ve often witnessed in my work how trauma healing can bring about profound shifts in consciousness. The transformative power of the body is sometimes overlooked in spirituality but I consider embodiment and transcendence to be equally important on our journey to full consciousness.
