A full Kundalini Awakening is a specific energetic experience that means all of the knots and issues of the psyche have been resolved. It’s extraordinarily rare. Most people who experience some type of energetic experience are not experiencing a full awakening, but the beginnings of the movement of Kundalini in the body.
People can have an energy shift that awakens level of perceptions that activate the chakras for awhile. They can move into some strange modes of behaviour. The real full-on Kundalini Awakening experience is a surge of energy coming from muladhara up the back of the spine, over the top of the head and culminating in the forehead. The whole system has awakened.
This awakening of energy has nothing to do with a person’s culture, religion, or country of origin. While the experience is general described in yogic texts, it’s also known of and referred to in other spiritual traditions. It is the natural evolution of the human being, awakening to higher levels of consciousness.
What are the symptoms of a Kundalini Awakening?
Energetic sensations like electricity in the body or internal lightening bolts
Shaking and jerking in the body, usually totally out of the control of the person
A sensation of insects or snakes crawling on the body, often along the spine
Feelings of cold in the body, and conversely, feelings of intense heat in the spine or in specific chakras
Spontaneously arising kriyas (yoga practices), mudras (hand gestures), Bandas (body locks), asana or pranayama. Usually the person has never studyed or learned any of these spontaneously arising practices.
Waves of intense pleasure or bliss, even leading to orgasm
Big emotional shifts or mood swings, well beyond the normal
Sensory overload – sounds, lights, noise – everything becomes too much
Strange internal sounds that no one else can hear like buzzing, musical instruments, or thunder
Waves of apparent wisdom or insight into the way reality actually is
Heightening periods of creativity
What is the process of a Kundalini Awakening?
While an awakening can seem like a crazy and out of control experience, Kundalini is an intelligent and organic process that has a purpose, and works with that purpose systematically.
The purpose is to work through all the illusions and knots in the psyche and re-orientate the awakened person’s life into truth. This can be a painful process because it can mean the end of relationships, work situations and old ways of being. Often people aren’t ready to let go of the known and familiar, and so attempt to hold on to these people and situations. The attachment to the old is what causes suffering.
The more a person has done the hard work before Kundalini Awakens, the smoother the process. If the person has had a spontaneous awakening with little work on themselves, they’re in for a hard road. Over time, Kundalini transforms on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
What are the benefits of a Kundalini Awakening?
When Kundalini awakens, a person may experience deeper empathy with others, and this empathy can almost become telepathic. There is greater sensitivity, higher energy levels, sometimes psychic abilities or deep knowing, ageing can appear to slow down, creativity and charisma can increase, as can internal peace and knowing. There is a sense of being part of All that Is. The greater mysteries of life are no longer mysteries.
Where can I find help or support for my Kundalini Awakening?
There are many support groups on the internet, and books that have been written about Kundalini Awakening. However the best support you can ever find is a knowledgable, trained and experienced yoga teacher who has been through some kind of awakening themselves. They are rare, but not as rare as you might think. Ask around, use Google, and see who you can find. Be discerning though and make sure you trust your own feelings and intuition. Never give your power away to someone you think knows more than you!
