Kundalini is very real. For each person the affect of the raising of the
triple fire up the spine is different for each person. The perhaps most
important point of this phenomena is that the whole experience must be
natural, not forced. It must be the result of a natural expression of
spiritual unfoldment, for if not, the experience can be quite violent and
life threatening. If natural, it can still be problematic. An important
point (to me) to keep in mind, if you are having such experiences, see a
Teacher, a true Teacher.
There are two books that come to mind, which to me, are trustworthy. One is
the experiences of Gopi Krishna. This is a book which has been published for
at least 25 years. The second is a book by John White -it is a compilation
of experiences from many people that John W. compiled. Especially the one by
John White (I suspect you could check at Amazon.com) is good reading, for
you can learn about the wide variety of experiences people have had. The
Gopi Krishna experience is good to read about for it was extreme..
I hope this helps.
