Kundalini Meditation by Kathryn McCusker
I recently wrote this review of Kathryn McCusker’s book and since then have undertaken to practice this type of meditation on a daily basis for 40 days (even if as a part-time SAHM I could only manage a few minutes per day).
It appears to be day 40!
As I wrote this I figured out I am at day 40, so as a dutiful Mom On A Spiritual Journey I thought it time to report my findings.
Well, one thing is for sure – I shall be carrying on with this practice well after day 40. This type of meditation for me is one of the most intriguing and experiential practices I have undertaken.
During the first week of meditation I found myself in the middle of a powerful vision. It was so strong that I decided to write to the author about my experience. She very kindly responded.
Here’s my Facebook Message to Kathryn and her response
Know you’re super busy yet just had to share this kundalini experience on day 4. Thank you so much for sharing this work with the world!
I was doing the meditation for hormonal balancing and emotions (for women) and the minute I started to whisper the Mantra I had a vision of a 16 foot crocodile. He walked through my front door and sat in front of me…then threw up water and Indian bodies…arms, heads, legs.
He just hung out, looked me in the eye and said “I am the mugger from the river gunga“. I checked it out later…gunga = Ganges and mugger is a type of crocodile from that region (as you may already know).
I take this as a blessing and a sign to face my fears and cleanse generally.
Thanks again – if you have any time for any insights it would be most appreciated…would make a great a blog post too!
Love light and blessings

Thanks for sharing your experience on day 4..what a powerful vision!
The water crocodile (mugger) is connected to the second chakra (creativity/sexuality/spirituality). Yes, I would take this as a blessing and a shift in consciousness/a re-birthing/spiritual awakening….something you are letting go of/clearing!
Interesting the crocodile looked you in the eye, this could be symbolic of your 3rd eye opening, the gateway to your intuition (perhaps a sign you need to trust your intuition more) and this meditation, Sa Ta Na Ma works on activating the intuition and the 4 sounds/syllables are the cycle of creation – infinity,life, death, re-birth…
Hope this helps…wahe guru!
Love and Blessings
Wow. And since then the visions and physical improvement have continued!
As part of practicing the meditation, there are ‘warm up’ exercises to get the energy moving before the meditation.
One of my particular favorites is called ‘The Frog’, where after some initial stretching you squat with the heels together and raised, hands on the floor between the knees and focus on the Third Eye. Then staying on tiptoe, you extend your legs so that you are essentially standing on tiptoe touching the ground.
This might sound a little difficult – with practice you can get there. I’ve always been hyper-mobile around my low back and hips (able to reach way past my feet) so this stretch releases tightness in the low back for me where other exercises cannot. What a relief.
Next step – moving into the breathing exercises more deeply
As I have discovered with many steps into different energy practices such as Tai Chi and Yoga, the beginning is only the beginning! As the practice deepens, more ways to go further on the journey and deeper within become apparent.
I have recently completed an online Akashic Records certification – and during a reading exchange with another student it was recommend that I practice breathing exercises to help the energy flow better and manage stress, so the next step on the journey is offered!
I’d love to hear how others practice meditation too. If you are completely new to meditative practice and want to learn more about the right practice for you, I can offer an Akashic Records Reading or an Intuitive Coaching Session to help you on your way.
Regular meditation practice really is a blessing – whether you like crocodiles or not!
