Kundalini awakening is characterized by the following characteristics. Sensations of ‘energy' moving or imprisoned in specific regions of the body, most commonly the chakra points. This process may become ‘visible' to the experiencer in some way. The energy is too strong or uncomfortable to tolerate, and it is frequently accompanied by shaking, jerking, or spasms.

What happens when Kundalini reaches head?
According to the Yogis, the spinal column has two nerve currents, Pingalâ and Idâ, as well as a hollow canal called Sushumnâ that runs through the spinal cord. The “Lotus of the Kundalini,” as the Yogis name it, is located at the bottom end of the hollow canal. They describe it as triangular in shape, with a coiled-up power known as the Kundalini, according to Yogis' symbolical terminology. When Kundalini awakens, it tries to force its way through this hollow channel, and as it rises step by step, layer after layer of the mind opens up, allowing the Yogi to experience all of the diverse sights and marvelous powers. The Yogi is totally divorced from the body and intellect when it reaches the brain, and the soul finds itself free. We know that the spinal cord is made up in an unusual way. When we look at the figure eight horizontally (), we can see that there are two portions in the centre that are connected. The spinal cord will be represented by adding eight following eight, heaped one on top of the other. The Ida is on the left, the Pingala is on the right, and the Sushumna is the hollow canal that passes through the center of the spinal cord. A fine fiber arises downwards where the spinal cord ends in some of the lumbar vertebrae, and the canal runs up even within that fiber, only much finer. The canal is closed at the lower end, near the sacral plexus, which is triangular in shape according to current physiology. The various plexuses with their centers in the spinal canal can very well represent the Yogi's various “lotuses.”
When Kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess, it connects with the Supreme Being of the Universe when it rises to the head (Lord Shiva). As a result, the aspirant is immersed in deep concentration and endless happiness. In his book God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita, Paramahansa Yogananda writes:
This creative power turns inward and flows back to its source in the thousand-petaled lotus at the command of the yogi in profound meditation, revealing the glorious inner world of the divine forces and consciousness of the soul and spirit. The awakened kundalini is the term used by yoga to describe the strength that flows from the coccyx to the spirit.
The yogi directs the searchlights of intelligence, mind, and life force inward through a secret astral passage, the coiled way of the kundalini in the coccygeal plexus, and upward through the sacral, lumbar, and higher dorsal, cervical, and medullary plexuses, as well as the spiritual eye between the brows, to reveal the soul's presence in the highest center (Sahasrara) in
How do I know if my kundalini is rising?
- You are able to see that we consciously build our reality by transcending the dual nature of the mind.
- You are filled with love and compassion for everything around you, and you recognize yourself as an integral part of it all.
- Your mind is notably calmer, and you've developed a new ability to concentrate on one topic at a time.
- Your mind has the ability to watch, discern, and witness (thanks to an open crown chakra).
- Problems from the past, including past trauma, no longer have the same impact on you. You remember them, but they don't bother you any longer.
- You may have wonderful physical sensations, similar to a full-body orgasm, but more sensuous than sexual.
- You've gained new strength and clarity, and you're no longer afraid to make beneficial changes in your life.
- It's possible that your body will quake. (This can happen if your Kundalini is rising but your chakras are blocked, preventing the energy from flowing.)
- The back of your neck is hot. (This, too, is an example of rising Kundalini energy not flowing properly, according to Rebelle.)
- You're having difficulty sleeping. (This is yet another example of what might occur when Kundalini rises in a body with clogged chakras.)
What triggers a kundalini awakening?
Kundalini energy sits like a coiled serpent at the base of the spine, according to Tantra. Kundalini awakening occurs when dormant energy flows freely upward via the seven chakras (energy centers) and leads to an expanded level of consciousness.
A kundalini awakening is a profound spiritual event for which yogis and practitioners prepare for years. The experience can occur deliberately through activities like as meditation, pranayama, yoga, and prayer, or it might occur unexpectedly. In the spiritual world, this form of awakening is very common, although in Western civilization, kundalini awakenings are regarded uncommon.
What color is Kundalini energy?
The seven chakras correspond to different energy centers throughout the body. Here's a basic rundown of the seven chakra colors, what they represent, and what they mean. By clicking on a chakra below, you can jump to a description of that chakra:
Muladhara, the Root Chakra: Red Color
Muladhara, which means “support” or “pillar” in Sanskrit, is the Sanskrit name for the first chakra. Because it's positioned at the base of your spine, on your coccyx, it's also known as your root or sacral chakra. Muladhara serves as the foundation or root of your entire chakra system, supplying prana to the rest of your body, mind, and spirit. Half of the root chakra is supposed to be outside of the body, grounding you to the earth. The Kundalini energy starts here and penetrates the body.
Red is the predominant color. Red is the most exciting color because it possesses the densest vibration of all the colors. Consider how you feel when you see a stop sign or blood on the ground. The root chakra sends out quick warnings and dangers, and we respond accordingly. It is vitality, courage, and life power.
Survival is one of the main topics. Fight or flight, instinct, stability, material safety, trust, and security are all concepts that come to mind while thinking about fight or flight. Our sexuality, physical strength, and desire are all influenced by the root chakra.
Muladhara chakra is balanced when you feel a strong sense of willpower, perseverance, and endurance. There is a sense of self-preservation as well as a connection to the soil and nature. Everything is in order, and you have a sense of financial, mental, physical, and spiritual security.
Muladhara chakra imbalance causes sloth, selfishness, and existential dread. Negative energy builds, as does over-worrying, wrath, and resentment. You could feel compelled to cling to folks who exude a sense of security. Colon discomfort, constipation, sciatica, lower back pain, hemorrhoids, prostate problems, or menstruation cramps are all examples of physical problems.
Agate, Black Tourmaline, Bloodstone, Tigers Eye, Hematite, and Smoky Quartz are all associated crystals.
Svadisthana, the Sacral Chakra: Orange Color
The sacral chakra is the hub of your creative and pleasurable experiences, located immediately above the sexual organs and beneath the navel, and above the root chakra. The root chakra provides the foundation for exploration, while the sacral chakra provides the joy and passion that motivates you to do so. The svadisthana chakra converts the earth energy of the root chakra and channels it into creativity and pleasure. It's a feminine, adaptable, energetic energy linked to your blissful feelings but not simply hedonism! Too much of a good thing may be annoying and even harmful. The sacral chakra is also associated with inner wisdom, calm, and personal growth.
Orange is the primary color. Orange is a vibrant, happy color that exudes life and strength. It is both red and yellow in color (rooted and powerful). It has a sensual quality to it and is linked to Tantra, the technique of sending kundalini energy up the spinal column in order to achieve enlightened states.
Water, procreation, sensuality, creative expression, compassion, enjoyment, gut sensations, and wisdom are among the major themes. The sacral chakra is a chakra of compassion and healing.
Svadisthana chakra is balanced, and creativity is at its peak. You have a positive attitude toward sexuality and your body, and you are accepting of people' shortcomings while also being empathetic. There is a sense of wonder and yearning, as well as a sense of freedom in searching for these things. You're vivacious, upbeat, and a lot of fun.
Svadisthana chakra imbalance: Poor boundaries, especially sexual boundaries, are a significant red flag of a sacral chakra imbalance. You may feel out of control when it comes to your sexual desires, or you may be incredibly repressed when it comes to sex and your body. A blocked sacral chakra can cause feelings of jealousy, fear, sexual dysfunction, obsessive or intense emotions and attachments, or a sense of being disconnected from one's soul or self.
Fish, sea creatures, moving water, moonlight, the warmth of the sun, and procreation are examples of natural phenomena.
ManiPura, the Solar Plexus Chakra: Yellow Color
The ManiPura chakra is the wellspring of your personal and professional achievement, as well as the seat of your strength as you go through the world. It's all about your determination and self-control, as well as your respect for yourself and others. This chakra is also linked to your ability to understand yourself your personality and walk confidently in the world. The solar plexus chakra is placed immediately below the heart in the abdomen.
Yellow is the predominant color. Yellow's strength shines brightly like the sun when it's not shining, illuminating the “I” your feeling of self.
Self-esteem is a major theme. Willpower is both a motivator and a driving factor. As if it were a humming engine. Making an impression on the world. Optimism, youth, intelligence, and loving sympathy.
ManiPura chakra is balanced, which means you're honing your skills and exerting yourself with grace and harmony. You have a good understanding of yourself and have faith in yourself. You are self-assured and have a strong sense of self-worth. You eat well and exercise frequently, and you feel strong, independent, and free.
ManiPura chakra imbalance: You feel terrified, and that fear transforms into pent-up hostility, a thirst for the last word, and unbalanced competition with others. You have trouble sleeping, and you are frequently agitated and have nightmares. You're stubborn, domineering, and manipulative, and you blame others for your shortcomings or bad luck. You will slide into excessive worry and wrath as a result of criticism.

What happens after Kundalini awakening?
Kundalini awakening is the movement of powerful emotional and mental patterns in the subtle body, rather than a physical force that may be started and stopped as needed. As a result, awakening is impossible without taking the proper steps to purify the subtle body's pathways. Beware! Unpreparation could have disastrous consequences, such as a nervous breakdown during Kundalini awakening.
No human being can deny the reality of the Divine Mother Kundalini. It's simply a matter of reawakening the Holy Spirit and allowing the power to spread throughout the body. As she ascends to the crown, passing through various nadis and chakras, the divine power purifies both the body and the spirit. She ascends from Muladhar chakra by spreading her rings and passing every chakra in her way to the sahasrara, or crown chakra. She will begin by regenerating the chakras and repairing any harm produced by your poor lifestyle. She will use this to awaken the deities, bringing you closer to the stage of spiritual awareness.
Can Kundalini be bad?
So, what's not to enjoy about that? B.K.S. Iyengar Swami Vivekananda, a yogi, compares the nervous system to an electrical system, including wire (nerves), circuits (chakras), and gates (locks) (bandhas). A Kundalini power surge, like any other electrical system, can disrupt the grid, causing serious mental and physical sickness. While the channels Kundalini flows through are broadly correlated with the neurological system, Kundalini is a subtle energy form that cannot be tested like normal nerve circulation.
What are the stages of kundalini awakening?
An old style of life will no longer work during a Kundalini Awakening. Personal crises, changes of attitude, tastes, likes, and dislikes can all occur in people.
This had already happened to me in the United States. For me, the life I was living there was insufficient. My feet were itchy, and my relationship began to come apart as I yearned for a new life. It wasn't enough that I lived in a beautiful little town with foxes, chipmunks, Aspen trees, and snow-capped mountains. I flew home on my own in the end. Life as I had left it didn't fit when I returned home. Things that used to make me happy were no longer making me happy. My gaze was drawn to a new horizon.
I became really ill, waking up one night with a fever and severe chills that rendered me unable to move or walk. I was transported to the hospital because I couldn't stand up on my own. With excruciating body aches (especially in my hips), fever, and physical weakness, I stayed there for two nights. I was eventually well enough to leave the hospital without a diagnosis after IV antibiotics, X-rays, and observation. I have no idea what was wrong with me to this day, but I believe it was one of the Kundalini Awakening Stages.
