The difference between spiritual awakening and ascension is not always obvious. In such cases not only the soul awareness is impacted, but also the body energies. Concerning the body energies, the main engine for this vibration rising is the kundalini energy, which first awakens and then starts rising through chakras toward the crown chakra, and along the way bringing on another level the very fabric of body energies.
What is Kundalini actually?
The first thing first is to understand what truly kundalini is. Ancient spiritual traditions like Hinduism and yoga call kundalini a “mysterious lifeforce”, while actually this lifeforce is just Mother Earth’s energy that keeps us all alive.
Therefore, kundalini is actually Earth’s vital force that raises through the Sushumna energy channel along the spine and goes through all chakras from root chakra to crown chakra. Since we are in the 3D vibration world, so quite low as vibration, the chakras are open just in the range 5-10%, whereas root chakra is open on average just 4-5%, meaning the connection with Mother Earth who maintains life in our bodies is rather weak; this explains also why the average human life is not too long.
Kundalini Awakening symptoms
Don’t mistake awareness for kundalini, they are not the same thing! They are connected, but not identical. Awareness belongs to the soul and mind more, while kundalini belongs to the body's energy fields. Unfortunately, Hinduism, Buddhism, and yoga were contaminated a lot over the years by mysticism and confusion, resulting in just dogma and a lack of understanding of how higher energy truly travels around Creation, including through people’s bodies.
How to open correctly one's chakras
A true kundalini awakening means the energy in your root chakra starts to rise in a structured manner and not fall back again. This thing is the result of a process actually, that takes time and effort. It doesn’t just occur suddenly without reason, it’s the outcome of this process. The correct process actually builds up energy into the root chakra and then starts to open more of the other chakras in a certain sequence: 2nd. 3rd, 4th, and so on, so to open the channel for Kundalini to rise. How to do the above is not the aim of this post. If one opens first more 4th and 5th chakras (heart and throat chakras) for instance, the entire chakra system can get unbalanced and undesirable results like pains might occur, and a general feeling of being unbalanced, since chakras 2 and 3 are still clogged.
Along the process, if the chakras above are open correctly and in the right sequence, then the spiritual might get symptoms of the kundalini rising through the chakras according to improving his corresponding chakras. The main kundalini awakening symptoms are in general feeling more peace inside, having fewer fears, feeling more balanced than before, feeling less attached to material things, getting a balance between his masculine and feminine aspects, and being not only one-sided, better communication with other people, nature, and animals. Also getting a higher understanding of the causes of reality around, getting an easier connection with his soul and guides, and so on.
To unclog his chakras, to open the way for kundalini to rise, one needs to release first and foremost his limiting beliefs.
Along these, there are secondary symptoms like some occasional shivers, thrills, etc due to the energy moving through the body. Important is not to mistake them with just energy surges that occur in certain circumstances in just about any person, a thing that makes the majority of people that know a bit about spirituality think they hit enlightenment and just got realized just like that, with no effort or very little 😊 Energy surges just come and go, and you are just the same as before…
Raised awareness symptoms
Confusion between true awakening and energy issues
For instance, in my healing practice I get people with all sorts of symptoms like high energy head pressure, feeling very unbalanced, or starting to hear voices in their heads, etc who went to doctors who didn’t find anything wrong with them after medical scans. They tell me that they got a kundalini head pressure because they had a “kundalini awakening” after doing some spiritual procedures. When I scan them I find they actually have their body energy fields shattered, got holes in them, many lost access to Earth energy, and even got alien lower vibration entities stuck in their body energy fields, a situation called partial possession; I then struggle to clean them (exorcism), and it takes time and effort. These ascension kundalini symptoms can be tricky to connect with their true causes, and only a competent spiritual guide can do it.
I advise that if someone goes through some spiritual experiences like those described above, and thinks after reading hundreds of posts and books about spirituality that he has just been appointed by God the next Saviour to first start being humble, and then check with some higher souls he trusts if this is the truth or not, so not to self-delude himself. It's true, a kundalini head pressure or another similar incident can occur during the kundalini energy rising and soul growth process, but it's to be expected and manageable especially if you are under the supervision of a competent spiritual guide. In this sense, you find below links to a Psychic Readings section, including a free one even, where I can assist you in checking your soul awareness and body energy status.
Also, keep in mind that awakening is not enlightenment, awakening is just realizing deeply that something might be beyond the reality of your five senses, that’s all. It's just the first step on a long journey that lies ahead.
