Kundalini Awakening Signs, Symptoms, Risks And Benefits

What is Kundalini awakening?

Kundalini is a sleeping dormant potential force situated at the root of the spinal column. This area is known as Mooladhara Chakra, which is a physical structure. In males, it is in the perineum, between the urinary and excretory organs, while in females, it is in the cervix.

To awaken kundalini, one must prepare oneself through yogic procedures. One should practice asanas, pranayama, kriya yoga, and meditation, which stirs prana into kundalini, waking up the energy that moves through Sushumna nadi, the central nervous canal, and finally to the brain. After the kundalini awakening, it passes through the different chakras interconnected with the brain’s silent zones. With the awakening of kundalini, an explosion may be experienced in the brain as the dormant area starts blossoming like flowers. Thus, kundalini can be equated with awakening the brain’s sleeping rooms.
