What are Kriyas?

Most of the definitions that you will find describing Kriyas are incorrect. The one thing that is correct is that a Kriya is a bodily movement. It has been described as occurring to long-time meditators as a kind of yoga-like spontaneous movement. It is spontaneous because it is involuntary, meaning one doesn’t will the body to move. The central nervous system allows you to move muscles in your body voluntarily, yet Kriya movements happen to areas of the body that are under voluntary control but happen without You willing them to move. This aspect makes it difficult to detect authentic Kriya movements in people, because they could just be pretending having heard about the phenomena and wanting to be something special.

What isn’t known is that our growth in awareness or in transforming our personality composes 3 steps composing the different aspects of our personality – of who we are. These main parts are mental, emotional and physical components, which together form our manifested physical aspect of our underlying spirituality. Another way to say it is that who we are as a manifestation is our realization.

When one is working towards awareness, Kriyas can happen anytime and result because one has surrendered the little mind voice that keeps one in a bubble, using up all one’s free energy. This surrender or period of getting quiet can happen in many different ways. It might happen during meditation practice, while viewing beautiful artwork, while taking a walk in nature, while listening to music or when something dreadful happens. No matter how it happens, what happens in the body is the same. When the voice gets quiet, energy in the system is released and then used by the system to realize a change so that the person will exist then as higher in awareness. It’s always about getting more energy and dissolving the static personality and becoming lighter and freer flowing. To this end when there is surrender, the central nervous system uses this free energy to make changes in the central nervous system, increasing capability in various ways. This makes that surrender results in long-lasting changes to the body. This is what is meant by realization. Because the kernel of awareness inside the body of the personality, always wants more energy, then any block in the body, which is draining energy, will be a high priority for use of the free energy. Even in the mental and emotional stages of awareness, when the body is being changed then Kriyas sometimes result. The longer one goes on the path of surrender and growing awareness, then the more frequent and pronounced the Kriyas become. It’s not about removing ‘a block’ it’s about removing all blocks.

The first steps one must pass through are the mental steps; the next ones are the emotional. After the emotional steps are passed, then there is a tremendous surge in free available energy, because the personality is easily set-aside after this, rarely getting lost in emotional swings or erratic behavior. From this big boost in energy, the physical stage is set and full kundalini activation is triggered soon after. the first parts of this stage is an intensive period of changes to the nervous system, part by part, all over the body. After this, this stage is very active and kriyas are the main symptom of it simply because of how the changes have to be made. Muscles are the main workhorses of the body and the central nervous system can control them via nerves from the brain to the body.

To say it briefly, the personality in the body lays down an individualized cord of energy, which is off center, and static, it does not go down the lines in the spine. Rather this cord results from the habitual ways of the personality and how the person responds to and moves through life. The kriyas serve to stretch and exercise all the parts of the Central nervous system, going over and over this cord of energy of the personality, freeing everything attached to the spine, skull and sacrum with the purpose to free the skeletal parts essential to the CNS. With each pass over the cord through the body, which includes joints and limbs, the free energy rises and the personality is reduced. This is a growing process, all freed energy is again used to make nervous system changes behind the stretched out areas, all the time gaining more energy. The breaking down of the personality in the body is the source of energy used to make the new entity. This process will continue until the cord of energy has been freed from all bones in the skeleton and skull and sacrum and is brought back to center. When the energy from the personality is all collected or freed and brought back to center then a new life will be born.
