Have you ever wondered what the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is? As we dissect it from chapter one and two in the book of Acts, we learn it’s all about kundalini activation. If you have read former posts on this website, then you already know that the Holy Spirit is identical to the concept of kundalini in the East.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit was so important that Jesus told his disciples to wait for it before they could start their ministries and establish the church. The true church is the human body-temple, so naturally Jesus was teaching his disciples that the real work of salvation begins during the activation of higher consciousness (kundalini) in the body.
Jesus had good reason to tell his disciples to wait for the baptism of the Holy Spirit based on an Old Testament prophecy as well. The prophecy comes from Joel. After the event, the author of Acts mentions that the baptism of the Holy Spirit was the very event Joel prophesied when he states:
“…this is what was spoken of by the prophet Joel; and it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh…” (Acts 2:17-18).
So how can we know that the event which happened at Pentecost was about kundalini activation? Let’s dissect it. We’ll start with Acts chapter 1. After the disciples watched Jesus being taken up into heaven, they returned to Jerusalem. Their first order of business was to pick a new disciple to take the place of Judas Iscariot. They end up picking Matthias.
Judas Iscariot symbolizes the least disciplined quality of the soul. It is the quality that betrays the Christ within each of us. The reason Matthias is picked to take Judas’ place is because Matthias represents the gift of God (higher consciousness / spirit) that can lift the soul again. Matthias is of Hebrew origin with a root word meaning “gift,” so it is fitting that Christians often refer to the baptism of the Holy Spirit as the “gift of the Holy Spirit.”
The meeting place for the Disciples is the human temple
Directly following the return to Jerusalem, we get a strong clue that the meeting place for the disciples is all about the human body-temple. The scripture states:
“Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which his from Jerusalem a Sabbath’s day journey. And when they were come in, they went into an upper room…These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said (the number of the names gathered together were about a hundred and twenty…” (Acts 1:13-15).
The first thing I want us to notice about this event is the “upper room” where they gathered. This isn’t a literal place. Many scholars have pointed out that the average Jewish dwelling place in Jerusalem during this time period would hold only a small to medium-sized family. One hundred twenty people, as the scripture states, could never fit in one of these houses, especially an upper room! This is has prompted some of the same scholars to state that the meeting place was at Herod’s temple in an area called Solomon’s Porch. Later in chapter two it states that 3,000 people were saved as a result of Peter’s message following the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the house. The word for “house” could also mean temple, so this argument makes a little more sense. But we still have some problems with this interpretation. There aren’t any “upper rooms” in Herod’s temple that would fit the meeting place description for the 120 (not to mention any other women and children).
The upper room of the human body
The upper room of the house (or temple) that this scripture is referencing is a metaphor for the upper part of the human temple, the brain and higher chakras. The baptism of the Holy Spirit takes place in the upper room because the Holy Spirit (kundalini) is a conscious energy that travels up the spine and into the brain, opening chakras as it ascends. If we continue to compare the description of what happens in Acts, we can see that it matches the imagery of kundalini ascension perfectly. The scripture states:
“…they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues…” (Acts: 2:1-4).
Wind is a symbol of Spirit (conscious energy) activating on the mental plane. The higher mental plane is symbolized by “heaven.” The fact that a “mighty rushing wind” came as a “sound from heaven” tells us that consciousness is being raised on the higher mental plane and in the causal body.
As we continue to dissect the imagery of this event, we see that what sat upon each of the disciples (their heads) were “cloven tongues like as of fire.” Imagine what animal has a split or forked tongue: a snake. Kundalini energy is also called “serpent energy” in the East because it is said to be coiled like a snake at the base of the spine. This energy is also like fire in that it burns up mental, emotional, and physical (etheric) issues you’ve accumulated in the chakras. The fact that the flame rested upon the tops of their heads can be correlated with the crown chakra. “Speaking with other tongues” symbolizes the gifts that can only come from our higher nature when we are able to receive them on our spiritual evolutionary paths.
In the scenes following this description of kundalini ascension an amazing thing happened. The scripture states devout Jews from every nation under heaven heard the disciples speaking in languages from their place of birth. These places of birth ranged from Arabia to far parts of Asia. This event is reestablishing what God did when he separated man’s languages at the Tower of Babel. Language is a symbol of the recognition of “oneness.” Kundalini ascension is a universal conscious ascension that brings this experience of oneness back to the individual.
Why Jesus commands the disciples to wait for the promise
It is also important to mention that before the baptism of the Holy Spirit took place, Jesus told the disciples:
“And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me” (Acts: 1:4).
The act of waiting on the Lord is the act of mediation. This doesn’t just mean sitting in silence in the lotus position. This also refers to placing your attention on the inward man. That is meditation. Notice that the baptism of the spirit didn’t come until they waited on the Lord by gathering together in one accord and in one place. This also hints at turning towards one’s center with conscious attention when seeking the Lord. Why? Because God is found in the mysterious depths that is within you!
