Shaking during meditation

CPTSD sufferer here, whenever I meditate for more than 15 minutes my hips + legs start to shake and pulse uncontrollably, and then it moves up my body so that my shoulders and chest push forward and back, sometimes side to side like a snake
I then feel calm for the rest of the day, however for at least a few days after I feel super anxious
Does anybody know what this means?

      What does Kundalini even mean? People mention it but can never give a clear guide on what it actually is or if it's bad

        it's a kind of spiritual energy that lives at the base of your spine
        when awakened it ascends to the crown
        like any tool, whether it is good or bad depends on how it is wielded

        when you read someone mention kundalini;
        99% of the time its someone having overloaded their energy system in some way shape or form and wack things result
        this is because they do not do enough stillness meditation to integrate the energies they are raising

      Do some asana and pranayama before meditation. There's a reason why they follow a sequence in yoga. Prepare your body for sustained conscious states by making energy flow everywhere.

      Not a kundalini issue since body tremors are not associated with kundalini rather internal energies. And even they won't manifest so physically this early on in someone.

        Okay I will try some exercise before meditating
        I have had in the past where I'm meditating and get a sudden giant internal jolt of energy shoot from my groin up through my upper body, it felt like intense lightning or tickling

    Sounds like TRE. Your body shakes to reduce emotional trauma.

      Is it reducing emotional trauma in that moment or releasing pent up trauma?

      • 1 week ago

        read up into TRE. Some say it's good and works, other say there are dangers to it if done without therapist/some more traumas might surge or whatever (maybe even lead to possession?). Take it with grain of salt but everything should be done in discretion. Also it's weird it's happening without you trying to go for it.

    Look into trauma release exercises, or the 10 points practice by Reginald Ray
    this is obviously caused by deep-seated trauma in your skeletal muscles and nervous system.
    With this chronic stress from psychosomatic trauma, the muscle never gets to loosen, it contracts and shortens because the body is perceiving a subconscious threat.
    Until you find a way to address and relax those muscles, it will hinder your meditation.

      Also I recommend to practice meditation in a safe environment, create a peaceful space free of distractions. Don't rush things, be easy on yourself and make positive associations.
      For this condition, the change has to be gradual, introducing new practices slowly over time within your designated time window.

        I've been doing EMDR once a week for my traumas, the same thing happens during it, legs and hips shake and pulse, just not as long or much as if I meditate
        Are you saying that the muscles are underused and can't properly process the trauma?

        • 1 week ago

          rather the opposite
          look up the 10 points practice guided meditations if you can find them, it's about progressively tensing and relaxing the muscles

      While lying completely still? I dunno about that one

        >While lying completely still? I dunno about that one
        yes, even when lying completely still you can still pinch nerves or have certain muscles be emburdened or relaxing or stretching in ways that take their toll. Even when lying down you can practice muscle relaxation because you can have a tendency of keeping things tightened up.

    Might wanna see your primary care dr., and see if you can get a referral for a neuroligst- sounds like your body is pinching a nerve as the muscle and skeleton system relax. Was having a similar issue recently.
    Also anxiety can be a direct cause of a nerve being stressed too, which is most likely why it lingers after episodes. Best of luck anon

      if someone before them hasnt already figured an issue out and said here's a drug we can sell you to perhaps address some symptoms
      unless its trauma and lacerations,
      allopaths are next to useless and will guinea pig you while charging you and the system frick tons of money

    I've had a fricked up life and have PTSD. One of the biggest steps I made was to never have a victim mentality despite whatever bullshit (fair or not) has happened to me. I can't guide you on how you can find personal equanimity but try to forget the past. Box breathing and deep belly breathing help if you're having a major anxiety attack. If meditation makes you feel fricked up try something else for a few weeks and then revisit to see if it's beneficial for you or not.

      Yeah similar boat here I used to have CPTSD, now any symptoms are pretty manageable. Finding ways to be thankful and see yourself like everyone else are important. You have skills that others don’t have, not just trauma. Exercise as much as possible especially when symptoms get bad. Meditation is not for you, general daily reflection on goals and such, rather than trying to empty your mind, is probably a better way to go. Classical breathing techniques especially with my eyes closed would also make me dissociate. I don’t think they would now, but I still find them useless. I did EMDR for a short while, it was moderately helpful. It’s all mostly just a process of unlearning negative behaviors and learning how to trust yourself and others on a daily basis.

        OP here, meditation itself relaxes me, and if I do a bit of shaking it's okay
        It's just if it goes on the whole 30 mins of meditation it burns me out the next few days
        I don't believe I have a victim mentality anymore, I am slowly learning the power of gratitude for what I do have in my life, and that I do enjoy life again

          always, always, always conclude a meditative session with at least 50% of the session being stillness
          especially if you are doing energy raising things

    Every cell in your body has a memory of sorts, and they remember the strife you went through by the way it changed your entire body. As they work out their stress in the new environment you are trying to provide, new things are handed to the conscious mind to grapple with. That is where the following anxiety comes from. Make sure to confront that anxiety consciously and let it go, or your body will continue to experience the stress you are holding on to it.

    It could be adrenaline release, sounds similar to the feeling befor "breaking through" when astral projecting/lucid dreaming/OBE. If you want to, you can try to have an OBE by using the rope or ladder technique. but please make sure you feel safe and your not doing anything important (ie working or school tests) the next day because you may feel anxious. It is normal to be scared when trying these techniques for the first few times, especially if you have entity encounters, however learn to control your anxiety and fear because that is what these entities feed on. Fear and anger is consent to entities, they don't understand "No" only strong emotion. Take my advice, and other anons advice on techniques slowly, make sure you are emotionally ready if you want to learn spiritual techniques.
    Good luck, I hope your cPTSD gets better, you will become a stronger person. 🙂

    Why cite something scientific and then ask for an occult/spiritual solution?

    You'd probably get a better more effective answer if you posted this Chat GPT instead.

    Most people are just gonna tell you:
    1. It's Kundalini brooooooo
    2. Stop jerking off brrrrrooooooo

    You are wasting your time, the issue is likely psychological and you won't get any useful answers here.

    Alright listen. you probably have stored trauma in your nervous system so you need to start stretching and by stretching i mean more like kundalini and yoga. get relaxed and try to feel your body move. try to feel the tightness around you lower body and upper body, hips, lower back, traps, shoulders, chest and neck. your body and mind unconsciously knows what's tight and where just try to listen to it or find some yoga instructions. start slow and progress. you'll get there.

    I myself just try to breathe deep and let my body drop to the desired position of my choice.
    breathe in deep --> tightness and pain in muscles.
    breathe out --> pain releases
