New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the AdvancedYogaPractices main group web archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?" It is also recommended you read from the beginning of this tantra yoga archive. The first lesson is, "What is tantra yoga?"

Q: Whenever I urinate I get a strong energy rush up my spine and into my head. Is this something that you are familiar with? Why is this related to urinating? It's been going on for months. It doesn't bother me in any way. It is kind of amusing. Just wondering if you have heard of such a thing.

A: It is a good thing. The energy going up the spine during urination is the beginning of kundalini sensitivity. As spiritual sensitivity rises, this can be experienced by both men and women, though having it during urination is not an absolute prerequisite for the rise of broad-based ecstatic kundalini experiences.

When the time is ripe, the energy going up the spine may be felt during other kinds of activity too, including sexual relations. The emotions can stimulate it as well - the bhakti connection in our spiritual anatomy. The experiences will gradually expand in your neuro-biology as you continue with yoga practices.

At this stage, as the urine passes through the changing sensitivity in the prostate, the energy goes up the spinal nerve. It is an indication of an opening occurring in your nervous system. In time, the stimulation will be there without urination, and you will be filled with ecstatic energy all the time. It is intimately involved with the evolution of our sexual function, which is the same as the awakening of kundalini.

All of the advanced yoga practices are for stimulating this transformation to higher functioning on every level in us.

The guru is in you.
