This stuff really isn't stuff to mess with. If you do it wrong and don't follow the precautions, you can hurt yourself.
A lot of people focus and only meditate on the 2nd chakra (google it and you'll see why). It is harmful to skip the 1st and even more so to hover on the 2nd, but DAMN it is amazing.
I'm not sure if I've 'activated' anything, but I just get a tingly whole body feeling where I'm (for lack of a better word) aware of my entire body and my mind is completely devoid of any conscious thought. It's different, to say the least. I'm only about 1/3 of the way through the book though, so I still have more to learn.

I'm convinced we know nothing about out bodies/souls/energy. After learning Kundalini, I really don't doubt anything is possible anymore.
I'm hopeful that quantum mechanics and research on neural networks will start to shed some light on consciousness, souls, etc in the coming years. If fundamental particles can exist at two places at once, and we're composed of fundamental particles, then who's to say our consciousness can't exist elsewhere outside of the body? It's a leap, for sure, but quantum mechanics is some strange stuff.
