What Are The Dangers of Awakening Your Kundalini?
Raising your Kundalini energy is no simple task. It requires clearing your entire chakra system and removing the identification you have with the material world and your identity.

This is a spiritual and divine process no matter if you have woken it up intentionally or spontaneously. Some people do experience the awakening and transformation as highly overwhelming, uncomfortable, and even terrifying.
However, instead of making you afraid of the wide array of side effects, you can experience remember that the spiritual path itself has challenges that shatter illusion, although at first, it may be shattering.
This is how some experience the rising of Kundalini energy. Commonly people experience shaking or involuntary muscle spasms while the energy rises and rewires the cellular body.
The increase in sensitivity is not simply limited to physical sensations, but emotional and extrasensory perception as well. Some people become frightened at the sudden capacity to see, hear, and sense more than they ever have before.
The sudden awakening of psychic abilities can bring people into a period of psychosis and feel emotionally unstable. Some people strongly disassociate with the physical world altogether due to the strong waves of bliss mixed with feelings of depression or unhealed trauma.
Of course, with all of these dangers of awakening the Kundalini energy, many others experience a blissful rising of their Kundalini. If you’re wondering if your Kundalini energy is already awakened, here are the signs and symptoms.
The Benefits of Kundalini Rising

If you would like to dive more deeply into this topic, this article will begin to point you in the right direction.
An increase within the nerves of the body, your emotional sensitivity (think of an amplified empath), and even alertness which correlates to strengthening your memory!
Transcending Material Attachment
Through the opening of all seven chakras and the primal energy of Kundalini rising throughout your subtle body and connecting you directly to the spiritual realm/collective consciousness, duality is ultimately transformed into union.
This decreases material attachment and your identification with your personality and who you thought you were. This is part of the ego death and is one of the main benefits of Kundalini awakening.
Anchoring Into Inner Peace
Through the death of the ego, this removes illusion and who you are not so that you can anchor into who and what you are. This brings you into a solid-state of peace that is not shaken by the changing winds of life.
This connects you to the part of you that is observing and constant rather than that which comes and goes.
Extra Sensory Perception
Psychic abilities come from heightened sensitivity and having high levels of discernment. When dissolving the blinded nature we typically spend our day to day lives in, naturally, the Kundalini energy brings us to see life more clearly and with a heightened sense of perception.
