For the majority of people it remains dormant at the base of the spine entire life and it never leaves the root chakra.

In today's exciting article, I will tell you everything you need to know about kundalini awakening, how to awaken kundalini energy and show you some of signs of its awakening.
Please read this text until the end, as kundalini awakening has some potential dangers and we are going to talk about them too.
Let's start from the beginning.
What is Kundalini?
Kundalini is a Sanskrit word, which represents the internal energy of our body, also called Psychic Energy. In many, ancient spiritual texts it is represented by a snake coiled in the vicinity of the first chakra, which is responsible for our connection with the earthly world.
This energy is associated with Shiva and Shakti, the male and female principles of origin in the universe. It travels from the root chakra until it reaches the crown chakra to find divine consciousness.
As you get deeper into the existence, you will realize that you are not just the physical body. Therefore, you have the essence and spiritual energy involved in your life.
And Kundalini is considered the spiritual essence of being, a manifestation of the creative energy of the universe.
It is your link with the divine and with the power of creation.

How do you awaken your Kundalini energy?
First, why would you even want to awaken your Kundalini energy?
It is important to understand that a rising Kundalini is one of the most important spiritual goals capable of modifying the life of any human being.
But to make this happen, it is necessary to make it leave its dormant state (when it is known as Kundalini) to become active (Shakti).
Here is how you can do it:
1. Tantra & Sex
I know this might sound crazy, but it is obvious that a snake resembles a penis. And some people believe that kundalini energy is nothing more than the sublimated sexual energy, a phenomenon that occurs by repressing its normal manifestations.
Let me explain this a little deeper:
For the awakening of the Kundalini in love art, it is carried out in the following way: The man and the woman during the love trance, must raise their sexual energy to the maximum, and at that moment, they must take deep breaths imagining that the snake rises up their spinal cord to the crown.
Sitting lovemaking position works best for this technique as it offers the right pathway for the energy to rise.
In addition, orgasm can temporarily stimulate the activity of kundalini energy.
Breathing is one of the ways, in which you can capture the energy present in the universe. Conscious breathing can be practiced through meditation or yoga.
Through the act of breathing you will be able to capture more energy that benefits you.
If you are just getting started, simply sit down and for 5 minutes focus your attention on breathing deep.
Once you get more advanced try some of the following techniques, which are known to stimulate Kundalini energy:
Diaphragmatic breathing - breathe from your diaphragm, rather than the chest and visualize stream of energy going up your spine with each of your in-breaths.
Breath of fire (or Kapalabhati Pranayama) - very often performed during kundalini yoga exercises, as it has powerful chakra detoxifying properties.
- Wim Hof breathing or any other breathing technique, which involves breath retention (extremely beneficial for stimulating your kundalini energy).
In addition to energetic benefit of this practice, breathing exercises are great for relieving symptoms brought on by anxiety and stress.
If you are interested in the topic of breathing and would like to try some of the techniques described above, head over to our Heart Chakra Healing Guide, which describes them in more detail.
Developing awareness of your actions and activities is fundamental to the energetic potential of your body, as well as to harmonize the chakras.
A good way to start this process is to conduct a guided self-observation meditation.
Music is a powerful ally of your mind, having an impact on mood, concentration, relaxation, and the feeling of well-being.
Some songs and frequencies assist in entering the meditative state, which is great for awakening kundalini energy.
Try listening to some relaxing music to bring mental clarity and focus to your day.
Another recommendation is to listen to a binaural frequency music (binural beats), which are known to balance the chakras.
Healthy eating is essential for bodily and spiritual health. Bring more nature to your diet. Consume fruits and vegetables, reduce meat consumption, and always look for organic options.
Take the opportunity to reduce the consumption of processed foods. Food is very involved with the harmony of the chakras, which, in turn, is fundamental for the awakening of kundalini energy.
Physical activities are great ways to mitigate the effects of body age and reduce the chances of harm to health.
Both the body and the mind benefit from physical activity. As the body is the vehicle of the soul, it needs to be in fullness, and this will only be possible when we take care of our physique.
Remember that exercise does not mean intense activities and a lack of pleasure.
Try to exercise within your limits and seek pleasurable exercises for you.
A morning walk or daily stretching session is a great start.
Kundalini Awakening Dangers
Before I jump to the symptoms of kundalini awakening and appease this energy, you must first know the dangers it poses.
There is something called the Kundalini Syndrome, this term refers to unpleasant moments in the inappropriate process of awakening the kundalini energy.
This can lead to many physical, psychological, and sexual problems as the energy gets stuck in the lower chakras.
If the lower chakras are too activated, the Kundalini syndrome can manifest itself physically as heat in the body in an excessive way, skin rashes, fatigue, insomnia, depression, and hypertension can appear.
To avoid such scenarios, I will specify that it is absolutely necessary to avoid forcing the opening of the Kundalini.
This is because unpleasant phenomena could occur if you are not prepared. Therefore it is advisable to seek support to carry out these activities since you may have problems that will affect your mind and body.
If you search on the internet, you will find many people who describe this phenomenon with a metaphor the same or similar to the following:
If you have a cable that can hold 10 units of energy, and you pass 20 units of energy through it, you will burn it.
In the same way, the Kundalini is a very powerful energy, and you must prepare your energy system and nervous system to be able to resist its force.
Kundalini Awakening Signs
A kundalini awakening is not necessarily abrupt. It can be soft and gradual, even completely invisible. Awakening occurs at several different levels that I have explained below:
1. Physical sensations
Movement of energy can give the sensation of something crawling under the skin. It happens that tingling or numbness can be accompanied by internal vibration and movement.
It should be noted that this sensation can occur in any part of the body, especially in the legs. Due to the fact that symptoms often begin in the lower chakras, in the nerve endings of the lower back, first sensations may appear in the feet.
2. Visual symptoms
The spectrum of visual symptoms can be very wide. From short flashes of light somewhere deep in the head to the appearance of images and frightening hallucinations.
These flashes of light may appear when you are in a state of meditation, but also when you are in your normal state.
3. Changes in temperature
Feelings of heat can manifest in two ways. For example, general heat can cause energy to move. It is also possible that the limbs, and especially the hands, become hot to the touch.
4. Changes in breathing
These changes occur quite often during meditation. Breathing can become faster, or conversely, slow down. It can be sharp and frequent, but it can be slow and smooth.
5. Changes related to emotions
During energetic awakening, there are no boundaries for emotions. You can experience bliss, harmony, peace, joy, and along with these feelings, experience despair, self-doubt, fear, and even insanity.
Quite often, people suffer from a lack of self-confidence, which takes many forms.
- You may start to doubt your reality.
- You may be overpowered by the doubts about reality and everything that happens around you.
- You may wonder, "Why me? Why now?".
- You may also experience a sense of isolation, deep loneliness, which may be caused by the feeling that you are not like anyone else.
What Happens After Kundalini Awakening?
The awakening of the Kundalini has real positive and concrete evidence.
You cannot say that you have an awakened kundalini if you have no proof.
Because when kundalini awakening takes place, your whole body opens. You completely transcend the normal category of mental consciousness.
The scope of your knowledge becomes larger. And as it flows through our body, it transforms your life into something higher.
As you can see, the rise of body energy and the awakening of consciousness are very important goals for any human being.
Our earthly purpose is to recognize the flow of energy we have and our role in a great energetic current that involves all beings on the planet.
