What Is a Kundalini Awakening?
To understand how you may feel integrating and moving forward after a Kundalini awakening, we are going to cover exactly what an awakening of your Kundalini energy is. The Kundalini energy is represented by a serpent coiled around the base of the spine at the sacrum.
It is here since our birth and when awakened it snakes throughout our entire chakra system clearing any remaining blockages from its path and removing any attachment to ego so that this pure shakti (divine feminine) energy can flow through us.
The awakening of Kundalini energy is said to remove duality and clear your being so that prana (life-force energy) can flow through you freely. This creates an ego death and opens heightens your awareness to a new level of sensitivity.
What Happens After The Initial Uncoiling?
When the Kundalini energy first uncoils itself and awakens it is very intense. Some people feel it as blissful while others struggle through it entirely. Although the entire awakening process is divine transcendence as people are experiencing a death of their ego and rewiring of cells.
We all know that deep transformation is not always comfortable. Now the question is what happens next? How do we integrate with this deep awakening?
If you are new to meditation and are experiencing symptoms of a Kundalini awakening, meditation is key to integrating and moving forward through this journey. You can begin learning with our immersive 30-day meditation course.
As described above the destruction of the ego and reconnection to the infinite nature of life is the first stage of awakening the Kundalini energy. This stage is in fact related to the Goddess Kali, the Goddess of divine destruction.
She removes the veils of illusion and the attachments you have had to the material world. The energy that then comes after Kali is the Goddess Durga.
She is known as the mother of the universe and goddess of war. She uses the Shakti energy to protect people while also removing that which has been holding you back including from built-up karma and past lives.
The next step is freedom and coming into a state of pure awareness. However, once your Kundalini has been awakened you can support the process of transformation in many ways.
Most importantly that would be by developing a spiritual practice that feels right to you. This can mean beginning or expanding a daily meditation practice, learning or more deeply committing to your yoga practice, or even combining practices such as journaling to create a morning ritual.
Once your Kundalini energy has been awakened your spiritual journey has been deeply set into motion. Practices that help you focus on dissolving the ego, letting go of attachment to the physical plane, and finding like-minded people is all part of the process.
When you assist your spiritual awakening the uncomfortable effects of the Kundalini rising begins to fade away. The more you resist the process the more resistance you find within all aspects of your life.
Letting go of identifying with the personality and surrendering to your higher self creates bliss and ease throughout your journey as well as creates a constant flood of growth due to the state of non-attachment.
After the initial rise in consciousness with the Kundalini if instead of transforming the personality we cling to the it then the we become stagnant and stay mixed into the illusion of identifying with the mind.
