Poll questions: Do you feel that you have had a change in personality since you started feeling Kundalini energy? What changes have you, or others around you, felt? Do you feel they have been positive or negative.
Fifteen people answered the Personality Changes Poll.
1. "Do you feel that you have had a change in personality since you started feeling Kundalini energy?"
Fourteen said they had experienced changes. One person said it was too soon to tell.
Some of the modifying words or phrases used were: Profound; Many; COMPLETELY; An unqualified yes; Yes, many changes...things I like and don't like; a total YES.
Two people said their whole outlook on life had changed.
One person said, he seemed to keep metamorphosing regularly.
One person mentioned become creative.
Another asked if it really is personality change? "I would say it is the "centering" of the psychological components of the personality."
2. "What changes have you, or others around you, felt?"
Seven people mentioned feeling more assertive, confident, powerful, had more direction, or were in more control
Eight people said they were more laid back, grounded, relaxed, tranquil, peaceful. Life was easier, more cooperative; an ability to "float along on top of the water."
While one person said that "Basically I have had a personality change no longer being a poor me, identifying with my story my history," " just the opposite was experienced by another: "I guess I feel sorry for myself in a way I haven't before. I feel slightly victimized, something that I would not like to admit."
Another experienced wide range of volatile emotion--from "enormous anger and hatred... to enormous compassion, love and patience." Another said she was "more well rounded in love. I seem to have a new heart now. (literally!)"
Three people mentioned feeling happiness and joy. One person said, "I am experiencing, for the first time in my life, the feeling of being allowed to exist on this earth, grace from the spiritual world maybe, a great happiness and bliss inside that I feel is the most healing thing that ever happened to me."
Some other comments:
"Before I had many many fears and panic attacks...I finally can say I love who I am for the first time in my life"
"Feel better about me than I've felt before since I was preschool age."
"My ability to put up with bull, as well as not put up with bull."
Q: What changes have others felt?
Seven people mentioned their changes were noticed by others.
Wife sees me as not being as accepting or understanding. Friends see me as having backbone.
They do not all see the change, only GOOD friends. One of them told me; I can see it on your eyes...
People thing I am "old" now...they feel like I am constantly having a hard time....
As far as others are concerned: the ones that also experience similar feelings have noticed that I am more relaxed, happy, more cooperative and receiving and more powerfull at the same time. I am more grounded into my body, which people can literally see; I used to jump around and was moving like a scared deer; now I am taking up more space and I am not so jumpy anymore.
I think that my husband has noticed alot of changes in me definately I am finding myself and have more direction now as for everyone else lol I think that they look at me and now that I am more spiritual they think I am ridiculous...
it is very apparent to others that I have developed in many areas.
I search more silence and isolation, being in contact with mother nature. Less interested on political or press matters. Change in clothes and make up being more simple in my expectations and goals. No big cities, less friends, only those with whom I share better.
It may sound corny, but I truly am 'FEELING' the love of my enemies instead of justifying MY position.
.To the third question: Do you feel [the changes have been positive or negative?.
Eleven people said it was positive,
Coming out the other end, as far as I've, much to the good. Real pain in the ass going through it.
I got my aura photographed yesterday and was told that my Heart Chakra is the most developed. I have been working specifically on that so that's good news for me.
It's been growth for me, not positive or negative
The extremes lately seemed to get further. Although I somehow feel I am close to being over the worst of it as I am accepting myself more and more. I hope one day I can sit in the middle of it all. MAS recently has been brilliant in pushing me out of a stupid mess I got myself into.
I'm feeling quite negative at the moment since my life is being turned upside down- again...In a year I could feel this is the best thing that has ever happened!
Positive, more relaxed.
Despite others views I think it is very positive and hubby is very accepting too lol so that is all that counts.
I am happy with myself and I have achieved a tranquility 'within' myself and I have a much better understanding of others
...thus far, my vote is two thumbs up for Kundalini personality!
Too soon to tell for me.
Since I was born with it, obviously. But I think you mean since I've actually known what it was and started working with it.
Answer there is also an unqualified yes.
I'm much much more laid back and relaxed than I ever was before. I credit most of that to my practices and effort. I'm not enlightened but I have brought forward personality traits from my last life along with a lot of sadness that went with it. Luckily I had a chance to play out some of that karma over the last 18 months. Could put a lot of bad emotions to bed after that. Feel better about me than I've felt before since I was preschool age. Not that I haven't got a ways to go yet.
Coming out the other end, as far as I've, much to the good. Real pain in the ass going through it.
I believe that I have become more assertive in thepositive sense.
I got my aura photographed yesterday and was told thatmy Heart Chakra is the most developed. I have beenworking specifically on that so that's good news forme.
My aura also told me that I am much more grounded thanI thought myself to be. It was pretty much entirely ofa bright red/orangish color with some yellow towardsthe center. Orange stands for the second chakra andsuggests a centered state. Yellow is the color of the3rd chakra and suggests extension/projection ofenergy.
I have also been running the Orbits regularly for overa year now, a Taoist technique for mellowing out the Kand for uniformly distributing energy to all theChakras as required. I also study Aikido, an Internalmartial art, which involves cultivation of the first 3chakras for grounding, centering and extending the Kirespectively.
**********Way I respond to stuff. Perceptual, I guess. This has happened a few times. My ability to put up with bull, as well as not put up with bull. Since I've been at least moderately active since I was 25, don't know if it was a part of normal maturation or by-product of the spiritual process. For me, all in the same thing.
It's been growth for me, not positive or negative. Wife sees me as not being as accepting or understanding. Friends see me as having backbone.
Outlook on life DRAMATICALLY shifted, ie: 'Knowingness' of how all of lifetruly has no Chaos, but has serendipty upon serendipity woven into a patternthat I had been too close to to SEE it before! Affected my Love and Zest forlife to by multiplied to infinity the moment I WOKE up Jan 16 1996.
More recent shift has caused the intelligent, witty, ready to 'counter'anothers' comment with a quip that made another 'think' about newpossibilities...to now lay even much lower and more well rounded in love.I seem to have a new heart now. ( literally! ) I now am realizing that eachone of us is 'always' right, so I must ALWAYS send the other who just cut meoff in traffice on their path with love, completely! . As they say, something like: why fight with a pig, they are the ones who love to get dirty!
> What changes have you, or others around you, felt.
It may sound corny, but I truly am 'FEELING' the love of my enemies instead of justifying MY position. ( I don't like getting dirty. Just floatong on thetop of the water, there are some sharp rocks on the bottom that I don't really need to experience anymore.)
> Do you feel they have been positive or negative.
Too soon to tell for me, not even sure I feel K yet. If it's happening Ireally can't tell, but to me following this "path" is a way to find thetrue me. Dunno exactly how it has or will change me. Good luck with thepoll!
Many times I'd say. I seem to keep metamorphosing regularly and don'tknow when this might end. Many days I seem to see something about theWorld which I haven't seen for a long time. As my outlook changes mypersonality invariably changes too.
Enormous anger and hatred to others at my worst. At my best, enormouscompassion, love and patience. I've bobbed in and out of the view stateon a few occasions. If only I could sustain this! I realise now that myhatred towards people is a reflection of myself thanks to MAS, so try tolook in the mirror more which has helped me so much lately! Right now Ifeel much more peaceful on the inside. I'm not fighting myself so muchas I used to. I've also found myself being more creative. I wrote alittle poem for the first time ever about a month ago. This is somethingI could not have done prior to K and letting go of stuff.
The extremes lately seemed to get further. Although I somehow feel I amclose to being over the worst of it as I am accepting myself more andmore. I hope one day I can sit in the middle of it all. MAS recently hasbeen brilliant in pushing me out of a stupid mess I got myself into.
I think I have an easy time of it regarding K as I was givenShaktipat by a Realized Guru also having done the AA 12 step program and hadI suppose dark nights of the soul prior to K.
A total YES. Afterwards; more confident. My view of life had total changed.
They do not all see the change, only GOOD friends. One of them told me; I can see it on your eyes.....
Hmmmmn... Well, disorientation, fear, feelings of "otherness," past-life memories. I guess I feel sorry for myself in a way I haven't before. I feel slightly victimized, something that I would not like to admit (even to myself). I think if there was a change in my personality, it would be that I feel less joyful, less willing to do things around people, often depressed, and all around dulled.
People think I am "old" now, (and I don't mean the positive aspects of growing older.) They feel like I am constantly having a hard time. I attribute my attitude partially to my surroundings because my husband has held a negative approach to "Kundalini" for me. It was when I met him that I even heard of the word and after I did research into the idea, I realized that was what had been happening to me.
I feel like my family and friends have been doubtful of my experience and wanted to label it as something negative because I wasn't enjoying the process. They wanted to know the end result of my "suffering" and I couldn't tell them. I think their conclusion was if she can't tell me it's a good thing and why- then it must be a bad thing.
I'm feeling quite negative at the moment since my life is being turned upside down- again. Overall I have the feeling that this is a tremendous experience and I would like to hold myself in relationship to it in a way that I feel empowered and not just like a wierdo. For the last 2 years my journey with K has been to embrace it as a gift and be able to have this gift and still function in the world. I feel like my general experience of it as of late has just been so challenging. We'll see. In a year I could feel like this is the best thing that has ever happened!
Yes - mostly in internal feelings and the way I experience the world aroundme, but I do think a mayor change has happened that will have an effect onmy personality in the long run.
I am experiencing, for the first time in my life, the feeling of beingallowed to exist on this earth, grace from the spiritual world maybe, agreat happiness and bliss inside that I feel is the most healing thing thatever happened to me.
Absolutely positive - allthough the friends that I have thrown out of mylife will say otherwise - there are two who projected so much on to me thatI cut off the contact. They will label my change as negative, since I am not"nice" anymore -simply because I refuse to put up with their projections andharmful patterns towards me any longer.
Yes more than I can tell you lol my whole outlook on life has changed I havebeen forced to deal with my fears and before the k I had many many fears andpanic attacks so I think this has been so good for me I finally can say I love
I think that my husband has noticed alot of changes in me definately I amfinding myself and have more direction now as for everyone else lol I thinkthat they look at me and now that I am more spiritual they think I amridiculous I have a very plain family (dont know how to say it) and eventhough I keep most of my thoughts and feelings from them (they dont know muchabout the real me) The little that they do know of me I guess my love andlight attitude and new intrests in metaphysical healing is basiclly a joke tothem so as much as I would love to share with the world what I love I tend tostick with my people of same intrest ok lol am getting off subject sorry I amtired right now anyway yes despite others views I think it is very positive and hubby is very accepting too lol so that is all that counts.
Hi Everyone, Is it really a personality change? I would say it is the"centering" of the psychological components of the personality. However somepeople have noticed that I am in control of my life and this so calledchange has taken a long time. Also, it is very apparent to others that Ihave developed in many areas. I am involved with a number of highly educatedpeople who are interested in my ideas and I might add that I have noacademic degrees. The final conclusion, I am happy with myself and I haveachieved a tranquility 'within' myself and I have a much betterunderstanding of others.
I believe that my personality as changed for the better. I seem to be moreeven in my moods. Happier, Joyful, smiling and laughing at life easier.Life has become a joy to me instead of a pain. I have moved forward in mylife with goals. And have quit literally changed the direction I was headedin. I have embarked on a new career in Massage Therapy and finished up myReiki Master. Probably the only thing that I do notice ,that sometimes ishard to live with, is a certain amount of nervous energy. And when I reallyfocus this nervous energy, it too can be wonderful, as everything I do getsdone faster!
:)) Yes, things I like and dont like
:)) I search more silence and isolation, being in contact with mother nature.
:)) Positive, more relaxed
Thought I'd answer my own poll before finishing up the tally. :))
> Do you feel that you have had a change in personality since you started feeling Kundalini energy?
Changes have been fairly dramatic, although much more obvious to me than to those around me. In fact it used to amaze me that few could see the profound changes I was experiencing
>What changes have you, or others around you, felt.
I'm much more confident and independent. Also more relaxed and at ease with others. I loosened up--even my walk became more fluid. Tension fell from my face and body. From being shy and retiring, I became less inhibited and more outspoken and assertive. Many intangible fears I didn't even know I had simply lifted. I used to avoid being around other people, especially strangers. Now I enjoy others' company.
I'm happier and feel a nearly continuous sense of joy--getting immense enjoyment from even little things. A glass of fruit juice can be ambrosia. I lost the fear of the future, *knowing* everything was taken care of.
I asked my husband what changes he noticed in me. His response:
Quicker to take offense. Domineering instead of submissive. Very self-assertive. Sometimes calmer and composed.
>Do you feel they have been positive or negative.
100% positive. ;)
