Been reading tons here, so haven’t been making many any posts as of yet.
My original post was on the potential consequences of psychiatric drugs and their effect on the abilities of the practicitioner.
I do appreciate all your responses and experiences in the usage and manipulation of the mind in using of such drugs as tools for their various purposes.
Since your well recieved responses, I have been taking the medication prescribed to me to combat the effects of type 1 bipolar and severe depression, and finding that they provide extreme focus, as the polarity does not consume me past the point of my will.
In the days following this I have found perhaps by the will of the universe in conjunction of some of the writings of Crowley, Kundalini yoga.
I have been going twice per day and everything in me is saying I should become a teacher and make it part of my permanent path in life.
I would like to ask the members here about their experiences if relevant, the awakening of the serpent energy, or experience of the serpent as a being that teaches us the importance of free form of motion, discipline of stillness, and of course the potency of gnosis in the power of meditation.
I feel as though there is a serpent at the base of my spine, that had been coiled sleeping or waiting? For me to make conscious decisions, to challenge my subconscious to be relieved its worldly shackles.
I have only researched this kundalini for a very short period, but have a wood idol of Shiva that is in my profile picture, with what looks like a cobra over his shoulder, that seems to be the serpent I am experiencing.
Any insight is appreciated.
In addition to this conversational point, I have been experiencing as perhaps just by looking intrigued by this forum Azazel. I have a figure clothed in black, entirely black that has come now twice in dreams and in waking meditation, that is offering what seems to be a wealth of power and abundance. As Azazel seems to have extended the olive branch I have not yet taken it consciously, but have now found the Serpent of Shiva since the dream and mediations.
Thank you all again for your help and insights into the matters.
