Sounds fairly common with Vipassana, but after reading about it a bit I'm not so sure I'm interested anymore. It started to sound like how I felt back in 1993 after I stopped using LSD and thought I might be damaged for life.

Is my submission to these semi volitional movements a step toward being possessed by some entity? But then they are just the result of my unbiased attention to my body sensations. How could I reject them without rejecting meditation? I can't meditate at this time without their comming. It is only my fear of their foreignness to my previous experience that scares me.
And since they became movement prompting urges, they have only manifested as healing efforts for a chronic blockage in what in kundalini would be called the throat chokra. So today I let them loose and they got me almost dancing with their gentle pushes and pulls on my hips, shoulders, neck and head as I walked . All these movements shaking loose deep seated kinks. It seems my body has a mind of its own aiming to heal me, and it is doing this like a dancer who leads with mye following like its willing partner. I am no longer worried by this process. This isn't an attack. It is healing.
Thanks for your concern.
"Kundalini yoga in the Natha Sampradaya and Vajrayana in Tibetan Buddhism both take their origin from the Mahasiddhas who were active in India from the 8th century to the 12th century. Kundalini yoga practices formed the core of the teachings of a number of these Mahasiddhas and are strongly represented in both Tibetan Buddhist practices and contemporary kundalini yoga practices. Kundalini yoga was spoken of as "Candali yoga" by these Mahasiddhas and became known as gTummo rnal 'byor in Tibet. Candali yoga was a key practice of the famous Tibetan yogin Milarepa"
