What is Kundalini Awakening?

Kundalini Awakening is a spiritual practice that aims to awaken the Kundalini energy at the base of your spine, which lies dormant in most people. This energy is depicted in Hinduism to be coiled like a serpent and can be awakened through various methods such as meditation, yoga, breathwork, as well as sex and drugs.

The awakening process involves activating the “serpent energy” located at the base of the spine. As you progress through this process, you may experience physical sensations such as tingling or heat and emotional responses ranging from euphoria to fear.

Many people who practice Kundalini Awakening report feeling more connected with their intuition and experiencing higher states of consciousness. However, it’s important to note that while some individuals have reported positive experiences with Kundalini Awakening, others have experienced negative side effects. In my case, I’ve experienced the extremes of both!

It’s crucial to approach this practice with caution and awareness since it can lead to intense physical and mental sensations that are not suitable for everyone. It’s also highly recommended seeking guidance from an experienced teacher before attempting any form of Kundalini Awakening on your own.

Ultimately, Kundalini Awakening is a deeply personal and spiritual journey that should not be taken lightly.

The Different Stages of Kundalini Awakening

Kundalini awakening is a transformative and spiritual experience that can bring about profound changes in an individual’s life. However, the process of Kundalini awakening is not a one-size-fits-all experience. It varies from person to person and can manifest differently depending on the individual’s level of consciousness.

These “stages” are not absolute in any way. Nor are these listed stages in any order as Kundalini energy has its’ own intelligence.

The first stage of Kundalini awakening involves physical symptoms such as tingling sensations, heat or cold in different parts of the body, and involuntary muscle movements. In this stage, individuals may also experience emotional imbalances such as mood swings and heightened sensitivity.

In the second stage, individuals may begin to have vivid dreams or visions while awake. They may also become more aware of their surroundings and develop a deeper understanding of themselves. Perhaps some glimpses of “spiritual gifts” begin to come into view.

The third stage involves a deep sense of connection with all things around them. Individuals often feel a sense of unity with nature, people, animals or even objects. This stage brings about an inner peace that allows for greater self-awareness and personal growth. Very much like a “pink cloud” effect that addicts and alcoholics refer to when first getting clean!

In the higher more advanced stages individuals reach samsara, self-realization. At this point, they may experience a deep transformation and awakening that leads to permanent change., liberation of the Soul. They may also experience an increase in spiritual insight and knowledge. Depending on the Soul, many “Spiritual Gifts” may be realized. In my case many, including psychic abilities, clairvoyance, healing abilities and coming off of the “wheel of karma”. This means not continuing on the cycles of life and death in this world. This is Soul Liberation and it is very noticeable when it happens! The end of karma for the individual.

However, some people may experience a period of psychosis or spiritual delusion at this stage. which brings about feelings of fear, paranoia and other negative and even dangerous visions, “downloads” etc. I’ve personally experienced all of it! I’m grateful for all of it now, because I’m a much stronger person for it. Many of the Stages of my awakening were very, very intense and not the sort of thing you can go through while working a normal job or such. This is very serious spiritual business! 

It is important to note that each individual’s journey through these stages will be unique but no matter what happens during each phase: Stay grounded!

The Dangers of Kundalini Awakening

Kundalini awakening is a powerful spiritual experience that can bring immense benefits to one’s life. However, it also carries significant risks and potential dangers for those who are not prepared or do not approach the process with caution.

One of the main dangers of kundalini awakening is spiritual delusion. This occurs when individuals become so fixated on their own experiences that they lose touch with reality and begin to believe in their own grandiosity. They may start believing that they are enlightened beings, capable of performing miracles or communicating directly with higher entities. Often, they may be! Others may be thinking they are but they are actually only delusional.

Another risk associated with kundalini awakening is spiritual bypassing. People might use spirituality as an escape from their emotional pain instead of facing them head-on. It can lead to denial, repression, dissociation and other unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Kundalini awakening can also trigger psychosis in people who have underlying mental health issues such as schizoaffective disorder or bipolar disorder. Symptoms include hallucinations, delusions and disordered thinking patterns which require medical attention. Western medicine doesn’t understand or have “a safe space” for individuals experiencing a kundalini event. Often the individual will be classified as a “mental health patient” and given drugs to treat something very different.

It’s important to note that these dangers don’t apply to everyone who undergoes kundalini awakening but only occur in certain cases where individuals lack preparation or guidance during the process. I was not prepared when my spontaneous kundalini awakening happened. It was a wild ride for a long time. My Kundalini awakening has been literally on-going for more than 25 yrs. Now. I meet individuals who claim they’ve had kundalini awakenings that happened over a weekend then that was that! I’m not calling them wrong or lying but personally that doesn’t sound like what I know! 

Therefore, it’s crucial for anyone interested in exploring kundalini energy must seek advice from experienced mentors or teachers before starting its practice.

The Benefits of Kundalini Awakening

Kundalini awakening is not only about the dangers and challenges that come with it. It also brings a lot of benefits to those who experience it. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from Kundalini awakening:

1) Spiritual Growth: One of the primary benefits of Kundalini awakening is spiritual growth. As your Kundalini energy rises, you become more aware of your true self and your connection to the universe. The Kundalini “prepares” the physical body for more refined spiritual energies to take up residence.

2) Increased Energy: Another benefit of Kundalini awakening is increased energy levels. This newfound energy can help you overcome physical and mental fatigue, allowing you to focus on what truly matters in life. Sometimes the kundalini energy is too much for the energetic and physical bodies. Individuals can experience serious “circuitry overload”. This is due to the physical and Etheric bodies getting conditioned to higher voltage of Spiritual energies. For instance, the level of light/energy that comes through me now is much, much more than it was 20 years ago. There is no way I could hold the energy/ light that I do now 20 or even 10 years ago.

3) Heightened Creativity: Many people report a surge in creativity after experiencing Kundalini awakening. As your mind becomes more open and receptive, new ideas begin to flow freely. This has been very true in my case. I’ve also seen individuals become very delusional as well.

4) Improved Relationships: Kundalini awakening can also lead to improved relationships with others. You become more compassionate, loving, and understanding towards those around you. Many people will find that old relationships fall away and new ones created with more vibrational match!

5) Greater Clarity: Kundalini awakening brings greater clarity to life’s purpose and meaning. You gain insight into why things happen as they do and how everything fits together in the grand scheme of things. You begin to live more from Source/ Soul and less from imprinting and old social norms.

6) Understanding / clearing and integrating past lives. Often one in the midst of a kundalini awakening will “experience” memories, trauma, wounds and significant events from past lives. I’ve had the experience many times of very clear past life memories including very clear smells, pictures of past lives including the mind-sets of past lives and different motivations that seem to be themes though multiple past lives. For instance, I’ve had many past lives as a warrior. I’ve been in the moment of death in memories and can smell all the smells of the place, see very detailed “movies” as if they are real life in the moment.

While there may be risks associated with kundalini awakenings, many people have experienced significant positive changes as well!

How to Safely Awaken Kundalini

Awakening Kundalini can be a life-changing experience, but it is essential to approach the process with caution. Here are some tips for safely awakening Kundalini.

Firstly, it is crucial to have a strong foundation in meditation and yoga before attempting to awaken Kundalini. These practices help prepare the mind and body for the intense energy that comes with Kundalini awakening. As someone who didn’t prepare, I highly recommend this. It will save you much trouble and turmoil!

It is also important to work with a knowledgeable teacher or mentor who has experience guiding others through this process. A qualified teacher can provide guidance on how to navigate any challenges that may arise during Kundalini awakening. I see so many different individuals posing as kundalini experts. They are either dangerous in the sense that if they truly are activating kundalini in people, doing so without proper wisdom and certain levels of mastery which is mandatory to do it correctly. Be careful!! Be Smart !!!

Another way to ensure safe activation of Kundalini energy is by taking care of your physical health. Eating a balanced diet, getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and engaging in regular exercise can all contribute positively towards preparing your body for the process.

It’s essential not to rush into anything when it comes to activating your kundalini energies. Take time working on yourself spiritually first before trying any advanced techniques like kundalini activation as rushing things could lead you down an unhappy path leading you away from spirituality entirely!


Kundalini awakening is a powerful spiritual experience that has the potential to transform your life in profound ways. However, it’s essential to approach this practice with caution and respect for its potency. The dangers of Kundalini awakening are real and should not be taken lightly.

If you’re looking to awaken your Kundalini energy safely, it’s crucial to seek guidance from an experienced teacher or practitioner who can help you navigate the process. Remember that spiritual delusion and bypassing are common pitfalls on the path of spiritual growth, so it’s important to stay grounded in reality while exploring these practices.

By being mindful of the risks involved and practicing safe techniques for awakening your inner energy, you can reap the many benefits of Kundalini activation without endangering yourself or others.  Thank you for your presence here on the planet! YOU.. make a difference!
