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.
Kundalini is a Sanscrit term from ancient India that identifies the arising of an energy and consciousness which has been coiled at the base of the spine since birth, and is the source of the life force (prana, ki, chi, mana).
Kundalini = serpent power, spiritual energy.
“When kundalini energy activates it offers an opportunity for the complete transformation of your life. It will support you in your deepest longing for Truth and Self-Realization, if you will only surrender and trust the process.” – Bonnie Greenwell Ph.D.
Kundalini energy is connected to your chakras. When Kundalini rises and travels up the spinal column, it passes through each of the chakras on its way giving each a boost, so to speak, and making it light up.
Kundalini offers you the ability to transcend the mundane both physically and spiritually. But you need to be responsible in both your exploration and pursuit of Kundalini. Kundalini Awakening is the evolutionary destiny of us all.
Spontaneous Kundalini awakening might happen e.g. after accident. However, if awakened Kundalini energy becomes off balance, a spiritual crisis known as Kundalini Syndrome can result. An awakening can be triggered by intense energy work, drug use, sexual experiences, abuse or trauma, yoga practice or life events. Process might take 2-3 years and it´s individual.
Signs and Symptoms of Kundalini Awakening
Everyone experiences Kundalini Awakening individually. It might be dangerous for those who are not spiritually awakened and their body is not ready for this energy. Conventional medicine treat this usually as a mental illness like bipolar and schizophrenia.
Signs of Kundalini shakti awakening can include:
- Things are falling apart, your old life isn´t working
- Starting to eat healthy
- Questioning the reality
- Physical, emotional and/or energetic symptoms, some might get only emotional symptoms when others get only physical
- Courage for the new things
- Miracles and synchronicities appear
- Increased sensitivity to sound, light, noise, food, media, people, places
- Awareness of internal energies,intuition and inner truth
- Wanting to explore the world especially spiritual places on Earth and different cultures
- Increased compassion
- Sense of life-purpose
Kundalini awakening is also called as Kundalini Syndrome if the body is not able to handle it. Kundalini Syndrome is defined as: “A set of sensory, motor, mental and affective experiences described in the literature of transpersonal psychology, near-death studies and other sources covering transpersonal, spiritual or medical topics.”
- inability to regulate body temperature
- feeling “electricity” running up and down the spine
- the sensation of the body vibrating
Healing tips for Kundalini Syndrome
Healing your body and spirit requires plenty of sleep, hydrating (pure, filtered water), whole food, and spending quality time outdoors to ground and restore balance to your chakra system. Grounding is important, if not possible to spend time in nature, take cold showers and keep arms under cold running water are good for grounding too. Avoid alcohol and medicines. Do physical work and physical exercise which are connecting you to Earth, leave the spiritual practices for a while. If symptoms intensify, seek assistance from a spiritual healer to help restore chakra balance.
Once Kundalini has touched the Ajna chakra (3rd Eye chakra) at the front of the brain it is a permanent awakened Kundalini and there will be no regression.
The difference between Kundalini and Spiritual awakening is that Kundalini is a powerful phenomena occurring in Conciousness but Spiritual Awakening is Conciousness waking up to Itself as its true Identity.
