Be gentle with yourself and take care of your nervous system
If you're having a painful kundalini experience, your nervous system is probably going into overdrive. The following are some suggestions for calming your nerves:
- Taking a warm bath with lavender essential oil (you can also try magnesium salts). If a warm bath isn't your thing, try a chilly shower instead. Pay attention to how your body and mind react to the water's temperature.
- Find something or someone who gives you a sense of security. Cuddling your dog or cat, asking a partner or friend to hold you, finding a snug nook in nature, or relaxing in a comfortable area of your home are all examples of this.
- Using an app like Calm or InsightTimer, practice slow guided breathing. (Pay attention to how your body reacts.) Stop promptly at the first sign of discomfort.)
Stop all spiritual practice temporarily
Yes, it's possible that your spiritual practice is enhancing the impact of your kundalini rising. So, come to a halt. Allow yourself to relax. If you're looking for a replacement activity, mindfulness might help you stay grounded in the present moment. More suggestions might be found in my post on the spiritual emergency.
Seek out compassionate help
If you're still having trouble with the kundalini energy being too strong, I strongly advise consulting a transpersonal or depth psychotherapist. Those who grasp the value of combining the mind and soul are the finest guides (or spiritual psychology). You can also locate folks who specialize in kundalini awakening help online but proceed with caution. Trust your gut feelings. You don't owe anyone an explanation if you're feeling bad or if you're getting strange emotions about someone. Leave. Look for someone else. You have the right to receive the help you require.

How do you get through a kundalini awakening?
On how to activate kundalini, there are many different perspectives and suggestions. Kundalini can be awoken in a number of different ways. For some, it may take many years of serious effort, while for others, it may occur spontaneously. The process is highly personal and frequently unpredictable.
Kundalini awakening is accomplished through a variety of ancient Hindu practices. In India, yogis would traditionally cleanse and prepare for several years in order to safely experience a kundalini awakening.
Although it is stated that you have no influence over when and whether your kundalini energy wakes, there are some techniques that can aid in your awakening and support you on your path:
What happens if Kundalini is awakened?
People are sometimes unprepared, or the process begins spontaneously without their knowledge. People who endure inner instability, total breakdown, or spiritual distress, resulting in a catastrophic life crisis, are examples of this. Disgraceful fitness and lifestyle behaviors, such as hard workouts, drug usage, abusive or traumatic situations, and so on, cause Kundalini energy to spontaneously emerge.
The immense strength of Kundalini Shakti energy, once awakened, radically transforms a person's life. He or she can go through a lot of social and emotional changes. Some people may even have a terrible prior experience or have personality swings on a regular basis. They would be able to transcend this inner trauma if properly directed by certain well-experienced masters and gurus, but if not, the outcome would be beyond terrible devastation in an otherwise easy-going life.
Is kundalini awakening permanent?
Kundalini awakening can be long-term or short-term. Kundalini awakening is permanent if it is triggered in the right way.
It is caused by an intentional effort to lead oneself into enlightenment, which is what temporary Kundalini awakening is. It is not created by swallowing any medicines or a sudden by-product of practising yoga.
Permanent Kundalini looks to be an endless electric current, and everyone who has experienced it knows it will never stop.
These people's lives are considered to have been irreversibly altered. This is comparable to electricity flowing 24 hours a day.
The majority of people describe it as “a constant companion,” rather than a rush, a transitory mood, or a long-lasting recollection.
How does Kundalini feel?
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.
How rare is a Kundalini awakening?
You've found the correct spot if you've had a Kundalini Awakening, are wondering about the Kundalini Awakening process, think you could have some of the symptoms of a Kundalini Awakening, or are looking for Kundalini Awakening support.
I've spent the last decade researching Kundalini Awakenings from all angles, including hearing from people who have experienced spontaneous awakenings and gone on to live healthy and productive lives. I've also totally integrated my Kundalini Awakening experience, and I now work with a number of students to help them integrate their awakenings, as well as teaching this (cheap) online Integrate Your Kundalin Awakening course.
Although a spontaneous waking can be frightening, Kundalini Awakening is our collective developmental destiny.
What is a Kundalini Awakening?
A complete Kundalini Awakening is an energetic event in which all of the psyche's knots and difficulties are healed. It's extremely uncommon and leads to enlightenment. The vast majority of people who have an energetic experience 99.999999 percent are only experiencing the beginnings of Kundalini movement in the body, not a full awakening.
This is nothing out of the ordinary, and the bells, lights, and whistles that might accompany any wakeup can become a source of distraction and impediment.
People can experience an energy shift that wakes layers of perception and temporarily activates the chakras. They have the ability to engage in certain unusual behaviors. A surge of energy rising from Muladhara, up the back of the spine, over the top of the head, and terminating in the forehead is the true Kundalini Awakening experience. The entire system has sprung to life.
Regardless, Kundalini Waking is the awakening of Kundalini energy, which lies at the base of the spine, whether it is a full experience or the beginnings of movement. In some manner, shape, or form, the energy begins to flow up the spine.
This burst of energy is unrelated to a person's culture, religion, or country of origin. While yogic scriptures often describe the experience, it is also known and referenced in other spiritual traditions. It is the human being's natural growth to come to consciousness as the truth of who they are.
What causes a Kundalini Awakening?
Kundalini was traditionally awakened through rigorous yoga practice. However, it's becoming increasingly frequent for people to have awakenings without any prior yoga experience or knowledge.
Intense energy work, drug usage, sexual experiences, abuse or trauma, yoga practice, or life events can all cause an awakening.
It's the first of many stages of awakening, not the final one! The true task of awakening and liberation begins now.
What are the symptoms of a Kundalini Awakening?
The indications and symptoms of Kundalini Awakening vary from person to person, and they are mostly determined by the energy blocks in the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. The signs and symptoms are usually related to the blocks, and the symptoms fade as the blocks are worked through and released.
Signs & Symptoms can include:
- Electricity in the body or internal lightening bolts are examples of energetic feelings.
- Shaking and jerking of the body, frequently completely out of the person's control
- Cold sensations in the body, as well as extreme heat sensations in the spine or certain chakras
- Kriyas (yoga practices), mudras (hand gestures), Bandas (body locks), asana, or pranayama that appear out of nowhere. Typically, the individual has never studied or learned any of these emergent habits.
- Buzzing, musical instruments, or thunder are examples of strange internal sounds that no one else can hear.
What is the process of a Kundalini Awakening?
While an awakening may appear to be a bizarre and out-of-control event, Kundalini is an intelligent and organic process with a purpose and a method for achieving that purpose.
The goal is to go through all of the psyche's illusions and tangles in order to re-orient the awakened person's life toward truth. This can be a difficult process because it implies the termination of relationships, work conditions, and previous ways of life. People who are unable to let go of the known and familiar sometimes try to hold on to people and situations. Suffering is caused by clinging to the past.
The smoother the process is, the more hard work a person has done before Kundalini Awakens. If the person has experienced a spontaneous awakening with minimal effort on their part, they are in for a difficult journey. Kundalini changes people on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level over time.
The most crucial part of effectively working with a Kundalini Awakening is a person's perspective on Reality. This is why having a good teacher who can impart the tradition's viewpoint is so important. The majority of people's problems with Kundalini arise from maintaining incorrect viewpoints, and the awakening can be skillfully integrated with a shift in viewpoint and the right practice. Integrate Your Kundalin Awakening, a four-week online course, covers all of this and more.
What are the benefits of a Kundalini Awakening?
When Kundalini emerges, a person may have a greater sense of empathy for others, almost telepathic empathy. Greater sensitivity, higher energy levels, sometimes psychic skills or deep understanding, aging can appear to slow down, creativity and charisma can rise, as can interior calm and wisdom, and aging can appear to slow down. It's as though you're a part of All That Is. Life's deeper secrets are no longer a mystery.
Where can I find help or support for my Kundalini Awakening?
There are several support groups on the internet, as well as literature about Kundalini Awakening. The finest type of assistance you can get is from an educated, skilled, and experienced yoga instructor who has gone through some form of awakening. They're uncommon, although not as uncommon as you may imagine. See who you can locate by asking around, using Google, and using your imagination. However, exercise caution and confidence in your own feelings and intuition.

How do I lower my kundalini energy?
The term “kundalini” comes from the Sanskrit word “kundalini,” which means “coiled,” and it refers to a sort of meditation that is said to fully awaken your potential for awareness.
According to the theory underlying Kundalini meditation, life energy is coiled like a snake at the base of your spine (root chakra), which is where it gets its name.
You can use a variety of techniques in Kundalini meditation to activate this energy and gain enlightenment, including:
These exercises are claimed to awaken dormant energy in your body and transport it along your chakras (energy centers) until it reaches the seventh (crown) chakra, which is located in your head, where it can be released.
Can Kundalini cause psychosis?
According to those sources, kundalini should only be awakened gradually and under the supervision of someone who has first-hand experience with it; otherwise, a kundalini awakening in a body and soul that has not been properly prepared can have negative consequences, such as insanity.
