Q: After i meditate in yoga about 12 years i feel an energy in my chest, and i feel illuminated and in control. In the chest i think is the chakra, also when i feel fine odors and hear some music i feel energy in all my body. Very pleasurable. That’s kundalini?
A: Very nice. Yes, all such experiences are symptoms of kundalini/ecstatic conductivity. Try not to become overly attached to them, and continue your practices. Practices will bring you steadily to enlightenment. The experiences are the side effects along the way, sometimes distracting due to their pleasurable aspects. Enjoy them as appropriate, but be sure and favor your practices. Experiences do not produce enlightenment. Practices do. You are doing very well. It is an honor to have you here.
The guru is in you.
