    • anyone had any luck with kratom if so what was it like and how did it effect ur hppd
    • The idea is that psychedelic experiences stimulate the kundalini channel at the base of the spine,  which triggers a flow of "energy" that produces blissful experiences. In my experience as someone who had severe hppd along with severe mood illness, the truth is kundalini awakening is a physiological evolution based around the sexual organs. I don't know the specifics but for me it's as if my testicles detached from some constricting channel and now flow internally. The Egyptians spoke of a technique during ejaculation where sperm is redirected to the bladder instead of being expelled from the penis. Only spiritual adepts were able to pull this off,  and as a result they experienced divine insighT, youthful energy and much more including visual and aural distortions similar to hppd. I have experienced similar things from psych use and later long long yoga and meditation sessions. Deep purple pools of color overcome my sense of vision whenever I relax enough to allow the flow of "energy" to travel through NY kundalini, up from the waist into my cranial and back down, tracing through the arms,  legs, fingers and toes. Look, the truth is this energy is actually sperm traveling through some alternative channel that produces similar feelings to sexual feelings. It feels like only one is flowing internally,  the other functioning as usual. IDK the details,  just wanted to share my side of the story. I wish a doctor could elucidate the situation but no ones ever come close to understanding these things. The only reason I know this much is because I had crippling emotional illness that I overcame via hours of deep deep kundalini breathing and yoga every day for multiple years. I am young so I can take control of my body and future if I'm so inclined. I wish I could protect people from these dark aspects of our lives but I feel there are people who want us to suffer.    My last message is trust your body. Please don't let ppl lead you away from your own feelings. Your feelings are the manifestation of your physiological state. Listen,  and act accordingly. And don't be surprised by anything,  because the truth can be absolutely "insane". Focus on your health don't believe the ppl who tell you your problems are due to "demons" or "thought forms", that spooky spirituality is all bs and the product of the ever potent human mind.    Sorry I forgot to add my emotional issues came from blockages in the kundalini path that were very severe and now are almost gone. Cranial pressure due to internal wax cloggage, kundalini improperly rising and getting caught between joints (hips specifically). I caution anyone who feels imbalance in physical sensation between the legs,  arms, shoulders, Hips etc. For me this signaled severe systemic blockage that truly was the bane of my existence. Please be mindful of your internal condition as it is possible that hppd is related to unknown physiological changes produced by psych. Experiences. Hopefully we will have the support to research this connection soon as I can't bare the thought of people suffering as I did, with less loving and understanding family or tougher life circumstances. Peace love and harmony 😘
