Kundalini awakening for most people, starts when they evaluate themselves for kundalini awakening or ascension symptoms. Many people do this because they aren’t sure about several things, like what if their kundalini awakening had already happened because of some spur-of-the-moment event, and if it was, should they start doing kundalini yoga?
Before learning about the signs of kundalini awakening, it is important to get to know the following:
Why Do You Need To Awaken Your Kundalini?
All human beings have kundalini energy inside them, but it lies dormant at the bottom of the spine. This is the energy that helps in the forming of the foetus, and when a person dies, is released into the universe. When the kundalini is awakened, a gateway is created through the crown chakra by the energy, thereby connecting you to the infinite energy of the universe. This allows you to use those energies when you need to, to live a healthier life.
Kundalini energy can awaken on its own, or by practicing kundalini yoga, the combination of Vinyasa yoga and Raja yoga, on a regular basis. Spontaneous kundalini awakening happens through certain life-changing events, like pain, trauma, sexual intercourse with someone who already has experienced kundalini awakening, or a near-death experience. With spontaneous kundalini awakening, the body could start trembling and quivering because of the various energy movements.
What Are The Signs of Kundalini Awakening?
The following is a list of some of the most common kundalini awakening symptoms experienced by most people. After kundalini awakening, you will experience:
A sudden rush of energy throughout your body – like most other people who experience this system, you feel as if the energy in your body is about to explode through every pore in your skin. This sudden rush happens with a spontaneous kundalini awakening, which results in the energy inside the body to flow chaotically.
Sudden headaches – making love with someone who has already experienced a kundalini awakening can often bring on sudden headaches. It happens because of the sudden connection the kundalini energy inside you with the energy of the universe. Practicing kundalini yoga will help you to regain control over your body and mind if you have experienced this symptom.
A stabbing pain in the neck and spine – the neck and spine are walkways your body uses to channelise the dormant kundalini energy lying at the base of your spine. The movement when doing this, causes chafing inside your body. Your body will react to this in the form of a stabbing pain in the neck or spine. The pain does become less however, if you carry on practicing kundalini yoga.
A change in your sleeping pattern – we sleep because we need to restore the body’s vitality. Those with an active kundalini, however, don’t need much sleep at all. You will find that you sleep less compared to what you did before and will probably start waking up at around 3 o’clock in the morning. This is another common kundalini awakening experience and is nothing to worry about. It simply means that your body is now using the energies of the universe to replenish itself.
You become more connected to nature – after a kundalini awakening, your attitude to nature will change dramatically. Suddenly, your back garden will make you feel way happier than your luxurious lounge or corporate office. Just like the same type of atoms attract each other, so do energies. Your yearning to be close to nature is proof that you are being drawn to the energies of the universe. You are therefore attracted to the magnificent gifts offered to you by Mother Nature.
You start to break free from worldly pleasures – after kundalini awakening, you will feel at one with the entire universe. Those possessive feelings you had, that developed over the years will fade away, and be taken over by wonderful feelings of inner peace and harmony. The importance of worldly pleasures will become a thing of the past, and you will probably also realise that material possessions aren’t as essential to you anymore.
You’re suddenly a peace-loving individual – like everyone else, you were also probably brought up believing that it is necessary to have a fighting spirit, because life was all about survival of the fittest. These are strong beliefs that tend to make some people restless and even violent. However, the more you experience connecting with the energies of the universe, the more you start changing into a more positive human being.
That violent tendency will gradually disappear, and you will start to feel part of the universe and all its creations. You will also show more consideration to others – both animal and human, which could result in you having a different lifestyle. In many cases, people who experience kundalini awakening, usually the spontaneous kind, often turn to the vegan way of eating.
You develop a stronger immune system – once the cosmic energy inside your body has been activated, you are not dependent on material things for nourishment anymore. This is when the universe feeds your soul and revitalises your body’s natural ability to heal itself, by making your immune system significantly stronger. An improved cleansing process also helps to get rid of any damaging energy blockages in your body, and at the same time, will make you healthier.
You have the desire to help others – the more you connect with the universe the stronger the urge will be for you to be helpful toward others. Your attitude toward life will change and you will suddenly start being helpful toward others. For instance, you could join a group as a volunteer to help and uplift the underprivileged in the community, which is an outstanding quality and will make you feel wonderful.
The above-mentioned kundalini awakening symptoms and the impacts they have on a person’s life, varies from one individual to the next. If you are unsure about the status of the kundalini energy inside you, you might want to talk to an experienced professional about your symptoms. After doing that, your yoga coach is the best person to guide you through the entire process.
