This podcast features the lessons learned from Scott Bryant-Comstock's Kundalini Awakening. Scott shares aspects of his kundalini awakening, reads a spontaneously written poem coming straight from the universe, and provides a bit of homework to help guide you in your own self discovery for improvement.

More about the host, Scott Bryant-Comstock:
For the past 40 years, my journey as a mental health advocate has spanned working at a suicide and crisis center, as a therapist in an outpatient clinic, an in-home family therapist, a state mental health official, Board Chair for a county mental health program, and a national reviewer of children’s mental health systems reform efforts. As the Children’s Mental Health Network (2009) founder, I lead the Network’s efforts to grow a national online forum for the exchange of ideas on how to continually improve children’s mental health research, policy, and practice. Through it all, I remain optimistic that the voice of advocates can, and will, be heard. We need strong advocates now, more than ever!

In 2019 I had a Kundalini awakening, which dramatically changed my life for the better and put me in touch with the universe in a way that I had not realized before. "My purpose on this earth is clear: to be of service to others and nourish their quest to become the better human they strive to be.”

    The Shadow Man

    The Shadow Man

    In this episode, Scott shares his latest poem, The Shadow Man. The backstory of the poem is about his encounter with a demon, which he calls the shadow man. The demon visited Scott in the middle of the night, a week before his father passed. He showed up for five nights in a row, and after Scott's father passed, he never saw the shadow man again. The poem chronicles how Scott made peace with the demon, allowing the demon to be set free.

    Poem for the episode - The Shadow Man
    Shadow Man
    Scott Bryant-Comstock, 2/14/22

    Jarred and awakened from dreams of safety known,
    banging and clanging on the opaque window that separates me from my soul.

    I hear a voice that's not a voice.
    I see a soul that has no soul.
    It's the Shadow Man,
    revealing his plan, telling me it's time to go.

    Rap, tap, whack.
    I am the Shadow Man.
    And I've come to take you back.
    Come play with me,
    I will set you free.

    The Shadow Man is coming for me.
    Part man, part animal, Bobcat-like in size.
    Squirrel teeth, bat face, piercing black snake eyes.
    A familiar grin with a sinister spin
    beckons me to cross to the other side.

    I cannot move. I cannot stand,
    I live in fear of the Shadow Man.

    But fear is just a tear that refuses to fall.
    If I let go of fear, then the Shadow Man has no reason to call.
    No shadow, no fear, no reason to stall.
    What if I welcome the Shadow Man to be a part of it all?

    Rap, tap, whack,
    I am the Shadow Man.
    I've come to take you back.
    It's time for you to see
    that you belong to me.

    No, I say, not today.
    I know you for what you are.
    Demon blood lurks inside, toying with my heart.
    Tempting, deceiving, thieving, grieving, tearing me apart.

    You are lost in a child's game,
    full of longing, suffering, and pain.
    I wish you well in your quest to be free.
    Shadow Man, you no longer hold a spell over me.
    You and I will coexist, but no longer will I feel your grip.
    No longer will you immerse me in your thunderous tryst
    with darkness, with loss, with the absence of light.

    Shadow Man, what you seek is not me.
    What you seek is to be released.
    The dark parts of me speak to you with glee
    but they won't set you free, just as they won’t for me.

    Flooding my face with an ocean of mist,
    I am mindful of the secret to finding true bliss.
    Acceptance, forgiveness, the is that just is.

    The secret is to neither cling nor flee.
    The secret is to just be.

    Shadow Man, will you take my hand,
    and embrace all of the parts of me?

    Only then will I truly be able to see.

    Only then will we be free.

    Poem for the episode - The Chrysanthemum Field
    The Chrysanthemum Field
    By Scott Bryant-Comstock


    The season of color is upon us.
    Explosions of yellow, orange, red, purple,
    white, and pink.
    A densely woven fabric of wonder with lines of
    green in between,
    such as the joy and the splendor of the
    chrysanthemum field.
    God's intoxicating reminder that our love is real.


    Can you see it?
    Can you feel it?
    Can you hear the sound of love
    as the breeze whispers through the stems close
    to the ground?


    Come nearer, where it's clearer,
    where the earth meets the sky.
    There, right there.
    Can you feel me now?
    Close to your side?


    The slow caress of your palm across the ground.
    The freshly tilled soil resisting,
    but giving way to the rhythmic pattern of your hand,
    gliding round and round.


    The stubble on my chin from thousands of miles away,
    begins to ever so slightly sway as if to say,
    you are here with me.
    Yes, it's real.
    We are lying together in the chrysanthemum field.


    Your hand slowly travels from ground to stem,
    imagining the journey within,
    that birthed the bloom at the end.
    A glorious expression of all that went in
    to the creation of this most perfect specimen,
    tracing the journey from seed to flower,
    surrendering yourself to the chrysanthemum's
    intoxicating power.


    I feel the touch of your hand on my knee,
    tracing the scar that defines me,
    that is only for you to see,


    hand on scar from a distance so far.
    An unspoken act performed countless times
    that reminds me without words,
    we will be okay, we are here to stay.


    Our scars continue to heal,
    as we lie together in the chrysanthemum field.


    You rise above the blooms,
    where the sun dances with the moon.
    The aura of colors surround you,
    flow through you,
    and unveil the true you,
    standing alone in the chrysanthemum field.


    I reach for the picture of you
    that hangs prominently in my view.
    And I feel hopeful for renewal.


    Come my love.
    There is much to be revealed.
    There is much to be healed,
    as we lie together in the chrysanthemum field.
