Progress in Liber E

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.

Hello everyone, I was just approved for membership on this forum and am so glad to finally be able to access it! I have a burning question in regards to my progress in Liber E. I have been practicing for a little over three months now and my primary focus has been geared towards Asana, Pranayama, Dharana and the LBRP. I am now able to do Pranayama 20-10 breathing for 50 minute sessions with relative ease. About a week ago I had my first breakthrough experience with Pranayama. I decided to add a mantra into the breathing and approximately half way through I started to become less aware of body, felt as if I was falling or being pulled, then flashes (Kundalini???) started flickering behind eyelids. I felt those flashes throughout entire body, even Surges of energy. It was crazy. At any rate, I continued my regular pranayama breathing sessions without the mantra. Only a couple days later I noticed I started having those same phenomena present during Asana practice, Dhrana practice, any exercise that involved breathing seemed to start triggering it, even the LBRP would slightly cause it. At night I would experience those same flashes, hard to sleep. I have quit Pranayama all together and the symptoms have dissipated almost entirely. My main question is, should I resume the practice of Pranayama? Or leave it out completely at this stage of my development? I would hate to loose all my gains in this exercise but I also don't want to cause something disastrous to occur, as I understand it, Pranayama can be dangerous. What shall I do??? Any information in regards to this dilemma would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

May I ask, did you actually master your asana before you tried your pranayama? How often did you go into your asana and for how long?

If you want to know what mastery is then go to this link and read the section on Asana. As I understand it, asana must be mastered before we go deep into pranayama.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

I believe I attained a "fair mastery" of Asana, the longest I have stayed in Asana is 50 minutes with hardly any discomfort, the same length of time I practice Pranayama. When I am in Asana, I have a light body feeling and its really comfortable up until the 40 minute mark and mild discomfort sets in, I am not sure why this occurs. Thank you for the link, I will be sure to study it thoroughly.
