The Pillar of fire is the same as the kundalini!
I just kicked this nasty 24 hour flu in which is was a struggle to move across the room. Every muscle ached. I had a strange dream in which I saw the pillar of fire, the flaming cherubim guarding the garden, the kundalini. This pillar is our vital energy running through us all. Like a single flame it runs right down the middle of us. It is this in which keep us from the garden.
It is this holy fire which is growing. Human consciousness expanding. We are the essence of this fire.
The Guardians of the ancient temples of mysteries use the Flaming Sword. The one who has awakened the Kundalini receives this Flaming Sword.
