Is my Kudalini awakening?


My question deals with meditation. I have been meditating for sometime using Masters teachings every day. However, in the recent past of approx. two months, during, and only in my very, very deepest concentration of God my hands, wrists, and forearms vibrate and I mean its very overt, meaning they really shake. I should also say my hands and fingers are interlocked when I meditate. Could this possibly be a sign of the kundalini beginning to awake or ? Thanks for your help!

Dear Donald,

Thanks for writing. You mention the vibratiing of your hands and forearms. There are so many different kinds of things that can happen when we meditate, it’s difficult to know exactly what’s going on.

I’d recommend placing your hands as Yogananda suggests, not with hands interloced, but palms upward resting on the thighs near the juncture with the trunk of the body. You might also put a pillow or folded up blanket underneath the hands. This helps relieve pressure that sometimes builds up in the back.

Then, continue to meditate, asking Master for his help and guidance. This experience will probably eventually stop happening.

In divine friendship,

Nayaswami Anandi
