Kundalini awakening is defined as the process of a person's ultimate unification with higher awareness, also known as spiritual birth. Yoga and profound meditation are the two basic methods for awakening the supreme energy in a peaceful and orderly manner. There are various books and medications on the market that claim to rapidly awaken the Kundalini Shakti, but it's important to understand that these shortcuts can only lead to complete catastrophe. This is why all religions believe that the waking process should be carried out under the supervision and presence of a master or guru.

How do you use kundalini energy?
The stages to starting a basic Kundalini meditation practice are outlined here. It's important to remember that it's preferable to start small. Choose a manageable meditation commitment that you believe you will be able to keep every day.
Avoid trying to achieve too much too soon, as this might feel overwhelming and cause your efforts to falter. Even five minutes of Kundalini meditation a day would undoubtedly benefit you, so don't overlook the importance of even this most fundamental practice.
What does kundalini energy feel like?
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 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.
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.
Where is kundalini located in body?
The Kundalini energy is said to be coiled at the base of the spine. The position can be described in a variety of ways, ranging from the rectum to the navel. Kundalini is thought to be housed in three and a half coils in the triangular sacrum bone.
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 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.
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.
