The term “spiritual awakening” aka “kundalini awakening” is one of those expressions you hear being thrown around, but you may not know the true meaning. Kundalini energy is sometimes represented as a serpent or a goddess, lying at the base of the spine, peacefully sleeping. It is spiritual energy. A kundalini awakening occurs when this dormant energy flows freely up through the seven chakras (energy centers) and leads to an expanded state of consciousness and a feeling of deep connection to the Universe.

I had no idea what a spiritual awakening was until I experienced one myself. I had described the physical symptoms to one of my friends because I didn’t know what was happening to me, and she told me it sounded like a kundalini awakening. It was the first time I had even heard the expression.

Everybody’s awakening is unique; you cannot compare your awakening to another person’s. It’s like a snowflake. Everything about it has to do with how your perceive the material world, then it shatters that perception. My perception of reality might not be similar to yours, therefore our experiences may not resemble each other’s.


Kundalini Awakening Issues

Even though no two awakenings are alike, there are a number of signs that are common amongst people who are experiencing one. Again, the symptoms of mine might be different from yours. You may experience only a few of the signs, whereas another person experiences many. Some people awaken slowly and gently, while others awaken quickly and dare I say, violently. If you are not spiritually and energetically prepared for it, it can be a terrifying, devastating experience. Mine was, but others may have an easier, less harsh experience.

When the kundalini energy hits blockages in your chakras, it creates issues. If you are on the path of trying to awaken kundalini energy, make sure you are energetically balanced. Chakra blockages make for a bumpy, spiritual ride. Your ego freaks out and it makes you feel as if you are losing your mind. I questioned my sanity many times. I was so scared that I was going crazy that I became a hermit to process everything that was happening to me. I only left the house to go to work. I knew something spiritual was taking place, and I knew that my intuitive gifts were showing themselves, but the whole phenomenon scared the living shit out of me.

These Are Some Kundalini Awakening Symptoms:

1) Prophetic or intuitive dreams 

2) Heart palpitations

3) Tingling in the third eye area 

4) Food intolerances

5) Feelings of vibration and sensations of electricity running through your body

6) Dizzy spells 

7) A feeling of Oneness with all living things and the Universe

8) Energetic (chakra) imbalances

9) Feeling pressure in the head or headache in the crown chakra

10) Night sweats

11) Sensing angels and spirit guides

12) Intense, constantly changing emotions 

At times, an awakening may seem like a curse, but it is actually a blessing from the Universe. It opens our eyes to see the miraculous world of the Divine. As we open them, we spiritually evolve. We grow as souls. We realize that our egos delude us from seeing the truth, which is everything is connected, and we are all one with the Universe. All the fear, anxiety, worrying,  and sadness from our egos drops away as we reach a higher consciousness and we feel nothing but Universal Love.
