How do I know If My Kundalini is Awakened?

The first step to determine if you’re experiencing kundalini awakening is to check in with yourself. If you notice that your senses have heightened, feel tingles or other sensations, or share spiritual release (such as feelings of bliss or visions), this could be a sign that the energy is awakening within you.

In addition, if you’re experiencing physical changes such as shaking, twitching, and heat rushing through your body, this could also signify that your kundalini is awakening. If you experience these symptoms, working with a qualified practitioner who can guide you through this process safely and in a way that feels right for you is essential.

Other signs that your kundalini awakened include feeling connected to the universe and experiencing a heightened awareness of your emotions and thoughts. That can help you connect to deeper truths about your life and lead you to personal transformation.

Your emotional body will also begin to shift as the kundalini energy rises in your spine. It can bring about a deep and often intense process of emotional reckoning that may result in difficult experiences or even depression.

How do you know if you have had a kundalini awakening?

According to yogic theory, kundalini is a primal energy located at the base of the spine. It says that this coiled energy will rise to activate and activate the chakras, which in turn leads to spiritual enlightenment.

Many yogic systems focus on ‘awakening’ kundalini, including Kundalini Yoga and various Tantra schools of Hinduism and Shaktism. It can accomplish the awakening of kundalini through different meditation techniques, pranayama breathing, asana practice, and the chanting of mantras.

Some of the most common symptoms of a Kundalini Awakening include waves of bliss, periods of ecstasy, glimpses of transcendental consciousness, and nirvana. The less pleasant experiences associated with a kundalini awakening can consist of the following:

  • Sharp pains in areas related to the chakras.
  • Trembling.
  • Periods of irrational anxiety.
  • Sudden flashes of heat.

If you have had a Kundalini awakening, it is essential to stop your spiritual practice and allow yourself to rest. You may also find it helpful to cuddle up with a pet or a partner or find a nook in nature that is peaceful and comforting for you.

If you are experiencing a kundalini awakening, seeking an expert is essential. It would help if you had guidance to ensure the process is safe and healthy.

What happens when you have an awakening?

A Kundalini Awakening is a spiritual experience that can be a mighty one. It can transform you physically, mentally, and emotionally and connect you with your true nature. The kundalini energy lies dormant at the base of your spine and can awaken by certain deliberate or spontaneous events.

Once it rises, it begins to move upward through your main chakras (energy centers), starting at the base of your spine. It passes through your genitals, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye point until it reaches the crown of your head.

Some people with a Kundalini awakening can feel the energy moving throughout their bodies or have visions or spiritual insights, but these experiences are highly individualized. Some people experience a sense of light and bliss, but others have intense emotions or find that their worldviews change dramatically.

Those with a kundalini awakening often feel raw emotionally and regress into their childhood. It can include depression or grief. A kundalini awakening can also lead to incredible synchronicities in your life. During this time, you may feel you have more power over your life than ever before and that everything works out perfectly.

Does kundalini awakening stop after activation?

There are a lot of people who wonder whether kundalini awakening is safe. Even though most people who experience this type of spiritual journey are happy and healthy, it can still be scary.

Avoid performing intense yoga practices during the activation process is also a good idea. Instead, try to focus on practicing meditation or pranayama to keep the body calm and open.

When the Kundalini is activated, it will create various physical, mental, and emotional changes. These changes can include feeling a sense of peace, happiness, and love.

If you feel a little anxious, fearful, or confused during the process of kundalini activation, it is essential to remember that it’s a natural and healthy part of the process. While these emotions can be uncomfortable, they are also necessary for healing your soul.

It’s also a good idea to find something or someone who brings you comfort and support while experiencing these symptoms. It could be a pet or a friend you can snuggle up with, a nice cozy space in your home, or even a walk in nature.

How can we awaken the energy?

It is a primal energy that lies coiled at the base of the spine and is said to come to life when activated. Different yogic traditions teach methods of “awakening” it for spiritual enlightenment.

Awakening the kundalini requires patience, courage, and a willingness to let go of old ways of being that no longer serve you. As you let go of these old patterns, you will experience new awareness and wisdom.

You will also notice changes in your body and your relationships with others as the kundalini energy moves through your system and transforms your thoughts and emotions. It can be a long and often painful process as you untangle your psyche from all the illusions and knots built over time.

It can be very intense, so it is essential to seek a qualified teacher or guru who understands the energy and can guide you safely through this transformational journey. It’s also a good idea to get regular kundalini yoga practice before the experience to become more energized and clear.

Are there any other ways to experience a Kundalini Awakening?

The answer to this question depends on the person’s readiness and practice of spiritual disciplines like kundalini yoga. It can be a positive and life-changing experience if the individual is ready for it.

It usually follows years of dedicated personal spiritual practice. Sometimes it is triggered by trauma or other life-changing events, but usually, it occurs spontaneously.

Typically the yogi will experience her kundalini rising from her base chakra to the Sahasrara chakra, where it will merge with the divine energy, forming a state of consciousness that it can describe as transcendent and unifying. The yogi may be able to maintain this state for a while, but more often than not, she must repeatedly awaken her kundalini and lead it higher into her chakras. 

One of the essential techniques for awakening the kundalini is the vase breath, a yogic breathing technique that involves the retention of a deep inhale through the nose while exhaling through the mouth.


A kundalini awakening is a life-changing experience. It changes how you think and feel, opens your mind, and reveals a deeper understanding of who you are. It also makes it easier for you to connect with your higher self.
