If you are the average person, chances are you haven’t really heard about Kundalini or Kundalini Awakening, and because there is very limited information on it out there, you’re probably wondering, “What is Kundalini Awakening and how can I activate it?”.

What is Kundalini Awakening?

Kundalini in Sanskrit translates to “coiled snake”. It alludes to the latent primordial life force (prana) or divine feminine energy that resides at the base of the spine or the root chakra and is often portrayed as a snake.

When this energy or life force is activated, it goes up the spine through each chakra until it reaches your crown chakra (Sahasrara chakra), where our divine masculine energy, or higher consciousness, is triggered. This leads to a better understanding of one’s life purpose, soul, and the true essence of reality.
Kundalini Awakening is not always something that is sought for; it might occur unexpectedly. It has no rhyme or purpose to it. Trauma, the use of narcotics, or years of serious practice via things like tantra, kundalini yoga, and pranayama, to mention a few, can all be triggers that activate one’s Kundalini energy. The fundamental result of a Kundalini Awakening, however, is that it is an energy awakening that leads us to evolve on several levels, including cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually. When the waking occurs, however, numerous symptoms might occur, which I shall detail later.
Kundalini is, in essence, your awareness. It encompasses everything you are, everything you think, everything you remember, and everything you imagine. This is Kundalini’s essence. Kundalini is traditionally regarded to be feminine (also known as kundalini shakti) and will only be allowed to flow freely through you if your chakras are clear and open; otherwise, you may have a very hazardous and frightening experience. Kundalini Awakening is a highly powerful event that takes years of preparation and training for yogis and practitioners. Furthermore, while this form of waking is widespread in the spiritual realm, Kundalini Awakening is uncommon in Western civilization. When we are young, Kundalini runs freely inside us, but as we get older, life and our imagined constraints block it, and it remains dormant.

What are the benefits of Kundalini Awakening?

Kundalini Awakening may be a tremendous instrument for self-healing and enhancement, with long-term positive consequences. People say that after Kundalini Awakening, your life will never be the same. Your entire mind, body, and spirit undergo a major energy transformation, causing you to move through life in a new way than previously. Some benefits include:

  • A significant increase in your ability to empathize and be compassionate
  • Your creativity expands
  • You experience feelings of bliss, euphoria, and resounding peace
  • You feel more spiritually in tune
  • Your psychic abilities become more enhanced
  • Your mind becomes more still, and you can focus on one thought at a time, rather than thinking about too many things at once.
  • Past problems and trauma stop having the same effect on you and will most likely stop bothering you the same way that it did.
  • You discover that you have a new confidence and strength that helps you make wise decisions about your life.
  • You become more insightful into your own life and potentially even your past lives.
  • You might experience pleasurable physical sensations that go beyond being sexual and are more sensual.

What are the dangers of Kundalini Awakening?

When you consider Kundalini Awakening, you may wonder, “Can Kundalini Awakening be dangerous?” or “What are the dangers of Kundalini Awakening?” Kundalini assists in “uncoiling the serpent” that lies dormant at the base of your spine, however, there are risks involved if done wrong. There are only a few disadvantages to awakening your Kundalini, and these disadvantages only occur if you are inexperienced, your chakras are blocked when attempting Kundalini Awakening, or it can potentially happen spontaneously, making it a somewhat painful and scary experience to go through. Kundalini Awakening is not the same for everyone, and it might seem like a nasty trip or a psychotic episode for others. Furthermore, in a body that doesn’t have clear chakras, one can experience intense physical discomforts such as body spasms or hot flushes.

How to activate your Kundalini Awakening?

Now that you have a general grasp of what Kundalini Awakening is, as well as the benefits and dangers associated with it, you’re undoubtedly wondering how to activate your Kundalini Awakening. There are several strategies you may use to activate your Kundalini Awakening. Some techniques include tantra or yoga practice. Others might include visualization, medicinal herbs (such as magic mushrooms or ayahuasca), breathwork techniques, belly dancing, and meditation. The process of awakening your kundalini is highly unique and unpredictable. Some other things you can try to activate your Kundalini awakening include:

  • Shaking your body and dancing
  • Energy work and healing
  • Pranayama
  • Practicing gratitude
  • Yoga Asana
  • Prayer
  • Physical Trauma
  • Emotional Trauma, depression, or grief
  • Near-Death Experiences
  • Love
  • Childbirth

How long will it take to activate your Kundalini Awakening?

Kundalini is also known as Serpent Power, Inner Woman, or the essence of Shakti, and the amount of time it takes to activate your Kundalini Awakening varies depending on you as an individual. Some people experience Kundalini Awakening early in their spiritual path, but others may experience it later and after years of spiritual work. It all relies on how distinct your energetic or chakra blockages are, as well as your soul and destiny.
As your Kundalini awakens, you become more conscious of your real essence, the nature of the Gods, and the purpose of your life. As previously said, awakening your Kundalini is accomplished through a variety of practices, many of which are derived from Hinduism, one of the world’s oldest faiths. Furthermore, in India, yogis would cleanse their chakras and prepare for Kundalini Awakening for many years. This should give you an idea that to have a wonderful Kundalini Awakening experience you need to be spiritually in tune and prepared.


To summarize, we have learned what Kundalini Awakening is, some of its benefits and dangers, how to activate your Kundalini Awakening and how long it may take to activate it, and the majority of what we have learned is positive. In conclusion, a Kundalini Awakening is generally seen as a pleasant and life-altering experience that might take years to prepare for via intense spiritual practice. Your chakras must be clear in order for you to have a positive and enlightening experience; otherwise, your Kundalini Awakening may be a painful and uncomfortable event.
