This is a very poignant and auspicious article for me to be writing about, as my Kundalini woke up in 1995, through the mantra and me chanting the mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. I was 21 years of age, and I went to India for the first time. As soon as we arrived, my friend and I were strongly guided to travel north to the Himalayas.
We arrived at the Himalayas and we met a group of people from Birmingham. Whilst all having the time of our life in Manali, we got a letter from a member of the Birmingham group, saying that he was in Chamba and that we all must go to Chamba. We all departed that day, feeling the urgency of this message to go to Chamba. And as soon as we arrived there, I recognised my spiritual brother, Dean Christopher. Dean Christopher suggested that we take a very intense trip up a high Himalayan mountain to visit our friend Junks, in his orchard called the “Valley of Hills and Peace”.


Just before we left Chamba, an Italian lady appeared in the foyer of the hotel, she ignored everyone else in the group, and she made a specific beeline for me. She came up to me and said, “You must chant the mantra, ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. Please promise me you will chant the mantra, “Om Namah Shivaya” She asked me to repeat the mantra a few times, and then she looked deep into my eyes and begged me to promise to keep chanting that mantra. I had never heard of the mantra, ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. I was 21 years of age and I was very naive on a spiritual level. I didn’t know about bhajans, I didn’t know about mantras. I didn’t know about Kundalini energy and I barely even knew about chakras. However, the lady was so adamant that I chant the mantra, Om Namah Shivaya that, which is exactly why I did. We then, embarked on a 12-hour, horrendously gruesome trek up a very, very steep Himalayan mountain, and I was carrying a backpack that weighed over 25 kilograms. Throughout the journey, I was repeating the mantra, ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ and truth be told it was the hardest and most gruesome journey of my entire life. Eventually, we reached the top of the mountain and I had a very strong urge to be on my own. I left the group, and I was still chanting the mantra, ‘Om Namah Shivaya’, which I must have chanted at least 30,000 times on that one day. All of a sudden, I looked up at the sky, and I saw this huge flash of light. At that moment, my third eye blasted wide open. And I went from a person who was blind to a person who could see. I felt the presence of many ascended beings, such as St. Germain, Archangel Michael, Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Bob Marley, Yeshua, John Lennon, and Gandhi. And there were many others that I could not identify. They were all cheering and playing the maracas. And I felt this most profound celebration in the heavenly realm that one soul had truly woken up. The light blasted my third eye open. And at that moment, I went into God-consciousness. I understood intricately and intimately the oneness of all of creation. And I was shown that every blade of grass is assigned a guardian angel. I was shown that God’s grace permeates and penetrates every aspect of creation. And we are also blessed to have spun forth from the creation of God’s heart. I received an encyclopedia’s worth of spiritual knowledge that was instantly downloaded into my consciousness, in what felt like seconds. And I understood deeply the oneness of creation and the beauty of God’s grace. As the light entered my sacral chakra. This was the place in my physical vessel, where I had stored all of my trauma and all of my fearful thoughts. As the light interfaced with my sacral chakra, I felt allof my fears dissolve back into eternal oneness, and I realized at that moment that if it isn’t love, it isn’t real.


It was such a huge relief for me to understand this and know this at the deepest level of my being. And I felt such a huge relief as I released all of the fear that I had carried in this lifetime and other lifetimes. In that moment of my spiritual enlightenment, I understood deeply and implicitly the origins of the soul, where the soul originates from, where the soul returns to and the purpose for souls on earth. It was revealed to me that our purpose on this earth, is to bask in God’s eternal grace in every single moment of our existence. After this experience, I was guided to go and share what had just happened to me with my brother, Dean Christopher. And he also shared that something very similar had happened to him when he was 21 years of age.

We then spent the night together like innocent children bathing underneath the Himalayan stars. The next morning, I woke up to experience the most profoundly powerful Kundalini rushes, and all day for the next six months, I experienced the sensation of my Kundalini energy rising in my spinal column. This brought with it a feeling of profound bliss and angelic glory. I was subjected to angelic downloads of the highest order and all aspects of God’s creation were revealed to me. Prior to my enlightenment, I had no clue what the word love meant. I knew that I loved my mum, but other than that, I wasn’t really sure what love truly, truly meant. I was completely unaware of what the word eternity means. I was completely unaware of timelessness, of what infinity means, but suddenly in my enlightenment, the deepest understanding of these words became apparent to me.

There is so much to speak about, but I will say that finding a mantra and committing to a mantra is a foolproof way to awaken your Kundalini. The practice that I did, was just repeating the mantra Om Namah Shivaya for one day. And that was enough to awaken me spiritually. As the years have gone by, I have studied the Yogis of Tibet, and I understand now, that I am a Western Yogi, and many Yogis go through very difficult experiences, i.e. Yogic challenges of all manner of description, as a way to create the contrast that will enable them to have the exalted experience of God consciousness.

I understand now, that my yogic initiation was my traveling up the Himalayan mountains, carrying a rucksack that weighed 25 kilograms. I wouldn’t change my experience, it has been the greatest thing that’s happened to me, my family, and my spiritual community. I’ve been able to bring through so many books, knowledge, information, videos, Tarot cards, and Oracle cards that have profoundly assisted many of my soul family to fully awaken spiritually. When I had my experience on top of the mountain, I was left with this almighty feeling of deeply needing to share this truth with my brothers and sisters. I was touched by the grace of God. And in many ways, it could even be said that I had a near-death experience without going through the drama of dying. This experience deeply transformed me on a cellular level and I became one with my higher self. My deepest passion and deepest motivation in this life are to share the grace that I experienced on top of the mountain with my brothers and sisters so that they can feel peace and at home in themselves, and understand the glory of the God that resides within and without them.
