My Kundalini Awakening Symptoms

Kundalini awakening should not be confused with kundalini rising. Once the kundalini is awakened, the next step is to guide it up the sushumna (spinal column). This is not an easy task. There are several techniques (Pranayam, mudras, yoga poses) that aid in this process. This should be done only under the guidance of a qualified guru to avoid the dangers that may come from dealing with energy of this intensity. As the kundalini rises and pierces through each chakra it bestows upon the yogi certain supernatural powers.

In my experience, most kundalini symptoms almost always come about when you expect them the least. They don’t repeat themselves too soon. They usually seem to happen when your mind is at its calmest-during the early morning hours or just before you are about to drift into sleep. I have tried to give details about my experiences. Hope you will find this helpful.

Below is a list of kundalini awakening symptoms that I experienced in the past 7 years in, chronological order:

1. Saw very bright white light when I closed my eyes that I had to look away (had to open my eyes). This happened just before I fell asleep at night. At the time I was very confused and went to see an eye doctor. Everything was normal.

2. Heard internal sounds of Aum/Om. This happened early in the morning as I was just waking up. This happened only once. It was followed by a feeling of extreme peace. After this experience I did a search online on hearing OM sounds. That led me to kundalini articles and I learned for the first time that I was having some spirituals experiences.

3. Felt bigger than my body. This happened before I fell asleep.

4. Felt intense wet heat in my tail bone for several weeks, in the mornings that lasted several hours.

5. Experienced extreme bliss, peace calmness, ecstasy for 3 straight days. This occurred spontaneously. In this bliss you feel connected to every living creature- people, strangers, trees, animals and even a little insect. You feel love and compassion for every being. You see things clearly-the futileness of materialistic objects and the awareness of the Supreme that pervades through every living organism. Material objects appear dead and hollow in this state.

6. I got another scare recently which led me to halt all yogic practices temporarily. I experienced several times in the middle of the night what I believe is Uddiyan bandha. I woke up in the middle of the night to find my tummy completely sucked in. A couple of months ago, I awoke at night to a very intense Moolbandha. Experiencing spontaneous mudras is also a sign of awakened kundalini. This was the scariest experience of all after the bigger than body feeling. It was also very confusing. I also thought I saw fireflies when I opened my eyes and heard musical sounds in the dead of night, for a few seconds. But I have decided to dismiss the last two.

7. The last experience is one that I have experienced more often. A tingling sensation on my head. The feeling as though some of the hairs on my head were getting prickly-kind of like goose bumps.

    number 6…i have been experiencing those lately more so. And for the past two weeks or so, i ‘ve heard “internal” music or music that is not in the material realm. This happens on and off and comes along with faint laughter and images of people celebrating something. Not sure it is related to the symptom you mentioned? Also i have been seeing patterns, shapes (like octagons and Tetahedron/merkaba stars) and intense white specles of light when i close my eyes.

    Thanks for sharing yamyah……this will be helpful to other readers…iti is slways hard topin point what is paranormal and what needs medical attention, which is why I shared my experiences. I used to see amazing patterns morphing into other patterns when I was younger but that has stopped now. Recently one night I also felt like some patterns were trying to form on their own in my third eye region. I was startled and it disappeared.

    As children, we are more aware of the “true reality” of illusion…i too would be opened to so much more back then. One night, I recall experiencing something very vivid at the age of 5-6. I was laying in my bed, and saw these images, that would change in colour and shape very rapidly. I didnt understand what they were, some were screaming faces, others were of a different nature, yet all of them had something in common: they connected in fear. I closed my eyes and buried my face in the pillow hoping they would go away but the images were still there, i opened my eyes and they were there all the same. It was only when someone turned the light on that all of it vanished. Have you tried binaural beats? Those have helped me a lot during meditation in terms of preparing my third eye.
    i love your posts by the way.
