What are Kundalini Awakening Levels

Hinduism dictates that ‘kundalini ‘ is a Serpent Goddess who lies dormant at the base of our spine, coiled, waiting for us to unlock her energy through a combination of meditation, yoga, and selfless acts of love.

The dormant spirit uses only six percent of the brain’s potential to see and understand the world around it. The enlightened spirit uses 94 percent of the brain’s capacity, allowing it to enter a transformational journey of spirituality and joy. *While there are many facets of kundalini, I’m going to focus on its role within an intimate relationship. Some gurus will tell you that in order to truly awaken your kundalini, you need to abstain from sexual activity, allowing you to use this energy towards a progression of higher spiritual transformation.*

You can be awakening your kundalini through mutual intimacy with your partner. Investigate this practice further if you would like to bring the full benefit of kundalini to both the intimate relationship you have with yourself and that of your loved one.* *1: Practice As You Are, Not As Who you think you should be * One of the biggest confusions with tantric sex and yoga, is the belief that who we are broken in some way. In this belief, kundalini exercises become an act to heal ourselves to reach a higher plane. The problem with such thinking is that we’re saying there’s something wrong with how we are now, which isn’t true. Kundalini is simply allowing yourself to relax and fall into the moment with your partner, accepting whatever happens next. *2: Don’t Use Your Partner as a Vessel* When beginners start practicing tantric sex or kundalini yoga with a partner, they often lose sight of the actual intimate moment, focusing on using the experience as a means to transcend their own sensual fulfillment or spiritual awareness. The problem with this is that it leaves out the fundamental idea of kundalini as a selfless act of love. Sit back and enjoy the moment with your lover without expectation. *3: Desire Urges Action, Knowledge Completes the Action Correctly* Tantra experts remind us that nothing can ever be accomplished in kundalini without desire (iccha), knowledge (jnana) and action (kriya). To awaken your kundalini, you must first have the desire. Desire is of course not enough, as you must have the proper knowledge and understanding of the practices. If your partner does not share this desire, you must provide that desire by sharing your knowledge while urging them to participate. This leads to the final necessity, which is action. Nothing will ever be accomplished without following through with the motions. *4: Unlearn the Idea of an Orgasm as Your Goal* In tantric sex, there is no final goal of achieving an orgasm. Instead of leading your intimate time with this goal, surrender yourself to the moment and see where it takes you. The idea here is that you cannot achieve a full-body orgasm until you have evoked the serpent goddess (Kundalini) to wind her way up through each of your chakras, beginning with the Muladhara (base of spine), followed by the Svadhistana (genitals), the Manipura (navel), Anahata (heart, sacred love), Visshuda (vocal chords, communication/expression), Ajna (third eye), and finally the Sahasrara (crown, brain/pineal gland). *5: Get in “Tune” With Your Partner* Foreplay to kundalini is sitting in a dimly lit room, holding each other, looking into each other’s eyes, and breathing in sync. Start slowly by touching your partner, relaxing in a shallow meditation, and allowing the moment to lead itself. Take your time. Remember, there is no goal (orgasm) to concern yourself with. Your only goal should be to enjoy and explore each other. *6: Practice Tantric Sex* The idea of tantric sex is enjoying the sexual union, allowing kundalini to travel up the base of the spine uninterrupted. In tantric sex, an orgasm is the release of your sexual energy downward towards the sexual organs, thus inhibiting your chance of building this energy up to your crown (full body/endorphin orgasm). To achieve this, try not to focus so much on the sensations in your groin, but rather the sensation of the energy as it rises up through your spine. Stop stimulation as needed to avoid surpassing the “point of no return.”

56 Levels of Kundalini Spiritual Awakening

However the process of a Spiritual Awakening is not always positive, it is the deconstruction of the old self stripping away the layers of the karmic shell to be reborn into the new evolved consciousness. It is the metamorphosis of the soul and the transcendence of the Ego. In many forms it is the concept of going through Ego Death.

Once the Kundalini has Awakened our subconscious or shadow self breaks through into our Reality. We are not only faced with our worst fears but we are faced with the crumpling sense that the truth of what we conceive of reality is shattered. The worst thing that can happen to a person is the realization that everything within our reality is an illusion, it can even be so strong as to drive a person mad. and does not always happen in any particular order.

1 Emotional Upheaval

We like to call it, “The Roller coaster of your Emotions”. This is where you will experience the extreme polarity of Emotions moving from euphoria to depression as if you feel your emotions are completely out of your control. This is the result of your hormones changing through your endocrine system. One minute you will feel on top of the world and the next you will encounter deep waves of emotion that will lead to tears. This is the work of balancing the Solar plexus center into the Heart Center. The Solar Plexus is the center of the Ego and as we go through transcendence our emotions are going through a state of repair between unifying the heart and mind as one.

2 Feeling Lost/Confused/having an Identity Crisis

Isolation builds where you can no longer understand yourself, who you are, what is your path or reality itself. It is the essence of Disassociation, where you feel completely disconnected from reality and those around you. This is not only just a feeling of loneliness, but it is also a feeling of confusion about what is the truth and what is real. It becomes not only hard to relate to others but there is a deep sadness when everyone around you no longer understands you. It also may even bring up the thought that your entire life is not real or that of existence is a fabrication. There becomes a deep fear that you cannot deal with material reality as everyone around you is still in illusion. This is where the Ego starts losing its bearings over your consciousness

3 Dark Night of the soul

This connects into the above, Identity Crisis. The Dark Night of the Soul is a natural part of awakening, it is the shedding away of our old skin. It’s the ripping apart of the old soul to be reborn into the new consciousness. There appears to be more chaos in your life as the old you encounters the resistance of Letting go. A desire to hold onto the old you, building resistance of Letting go which causes more and more entropy within your daily life. A dark night of the soul creates isolation with those around us, everything begins to rip apart within our reality, our friends, our family, and those we love most we feel we can’t connect anymore. We feel an inability to connect because the universe is asking us to look more inward and question ourselves, our reality and what our purpose is here. It is usually triggered by a dark event surrounding Loss such as death, a bad breakup, loss of a job, loss of a house, rape, illness, etc. A cataclysm that triggers the destruction of the Ego as our subconscious breaks through. It gives us a look behind our own face into our worst fears and insecurities. It is about facing our dark night of the soul to get to the infinite light of our being.

4 Strong Feeling and Seeing Energy

Our world is made of energy and once we start awakening, our senses become heightened into seeing beyond ordinary reality. You begin to start seeing and feeling energy around yourself and others. This can manifest in many different forms, the more common occurrences: Seeing orbs of light within peripheral vision, light flashes, tracers or after-images amongst objects or people, tingling or vibrating sensation from head to toe, feeling explainable warmth in the hands or feet, swirling orbs of light within the sky, seeing colors of frequency


5 Feeling Deeply in Tune with Astrological Alignments

When our consciousness changes we become more in alignment with frequency and in turn frequencies of the Earth. When we are more aware we begin to notice the subtle patterns especially during the moon phases and astrological alignments. Since everything is connected through the ripple effect, we are affected in magnitude during these events. Every Meteor shower, Solar flare, Equinox, Solstice, Eclipse. Also, be sure to check out your natal chart to see where your transits are and how they will affect you. Astrology has subtle patterns are always there for those willing to observe and feel.

6 Increase in Intuition/Psychic abilities

What was once known as a paranormal activity has now become a part of your everyday life? When we awaken our senses they become not only sharper but the desire to think before acting is no more. Your intuition is guiding you more than you ever thought possible. You start to listen to your gut-instinct, Synchronicity or patterns become too hard to ignore, you start predicting events before they occur, Aura reading or Energy reading people just by looking at them or knowing things about a stranger before you even knew them, Knowing what others are thinking before they say it, Precognitive dreaming, Channeling, Developing a deep empathy towards people and putting yourself inside their skins as if you are becoming them, Inner knowing and the more common terms: Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Clairvoyance, Clair-cognizance, and the list is endless.

7 Encountering Past-life Memories

Our Ancient Memory is returning and with that we can tap into past life memories of ourselves. These are deep suppressed memories within our soul's blueprint of who we are and were within various lifetimes. Past ancient memories for some appear in flashbacks, visions, daydreams or glimpses into the past where we suddenly remember an instance as if we can feel the emotion we went through at the time. It is a memory so vivid and real that brings confusion because you realize it was not from the life you are currently living. During an Awakening you can easily find yourself being encountered with your Past, although Meditation.

8 Flashes into Other Realities

The feeling as if you are living in multiple realities at once or parallel lives. As the veil lifts around us it is easier to tap into various perceptions of time. Time is more fluid as past, present and future merge as one. You feel as if straddled between worlds or moving into different realities altogether. It usually enables a very disoriented feeling of not being grounded in the physical because you are opening yourself to different timelines of perceiving reality. Precognition and retro-cognition can be developed once this symptom starts to happen to you.

9 Seeing a Person’s True Form

It’s like the concept of the mirror into seeing other reflections of their past lives through their own energy auras. As we are stronger sometimes we can see loved ones or even strangers with a different face enabling something from their past life or parallel life to come through to us.

10 Panic attacks/anxiety

The flow of energy within you can be overwhelming as the Ego loses its grip, this can cause your brain to move faster than the body enabling a concept called “black hole thinking”. Your perception is changing and with that comes a desire to fall into a cycle of past and future thinking enabling Fear and Loss.

11 Zero Tolerance for Lower Energy

You are drained, you cannot stomach certain people anymore and being around them brings you down further. There is an innate desire to surround yourself around “like-minded” people and healthy relationships. You simply cannot tolerate lower vibrational environments, toxic unhealthy relationships any longer. Your body is longing to move away from dualistic concepts completely, now you are in alignment with the higher energies of the New Paradigm.

12 The Rapid Increase of Synchronicity in your life

Synchronicity begins to take hold of your life in a way that is dreamlike and certain numbers begin to haunt you, most commonly 11:11, 12:12, 111, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, etc. The signs begin increasing where it becomes more than just numbers but you begin experiencing deja-vu, dreams taking form, or certain symbols appear in your life. The subconscious is powerful, it is a tool to unlocking our own long-term memory; the symbols work in a way that is similar to Jungian Psychology. The symbols help awaken us.

13 Clear Communication with the Higher Mind

You find yourself talking to yourself or just, in general, you feel more in tune with listening to the silence. You feel a desire to speak with this “inner voice” or listen to the silence. Many experience meeting their Spirit Guides and communicating this way. This is also the frequency where you can speak to Spirits, our star family, our higher self which is a part of you and various other beings. Channeling is becoming more innate and natural to us as we open ourselves as a receptive channel to the Spirit world and Divine Source.

14 The Urge to Create

You want to explore things creatively: cooking, decorating, art, music, etc. One instance of Awakening is you are becoming more in tune with your subconscious and releasing the mind for imagination. The imagination is becoming more powerful than your natural thought process. We create our own reality with the power of our thoughts, this is the universe giving us a sign to start creating both literally and figuratively.

15 Moments of Elation

Once Awakened you begin to feel more at peace with yourself and your reality. This creates moments of bliss and euphoria by realizing you are seeing over the illusions of separation by knowing that you are never alone.

16 Time Dilation

The concept of how we view Time is changing entirely. We’re operating more from a unified sense of past-present-future perception. The Time is NOW. Your consciousness is striving for a present mindset. Time doesn’t feel like it has the structure anymore, it’s very fluid.

17 Memory Problems/Memory fog

We are becoming more intuitive by nature. When the kundalini is awakened, the left and right hemisphere begin to operate together in a unified balance enabling ultimate clarity.

Our Consciousness is shifting from the left-hemisphere(short-term memory) to the right (long-term memory), sometimes it is much harder to process information when you brain is thinking more spatial rather than logical. It becomes much harder to compartmentalize thoughts and learning to feel instead of over-thinking your words.

18 Left-brain Fogginess

Our Consciousness is going through a rewiring so everything our Right Hemisphere operates on will be heightened. This means our empathy, psychic abilities and your ability to experience through vision will be magnified. Whereas the left-hemisphere is going to take the back seat by tuning down its frequency. The Left-hemisphere is dominated by our logical reasoning, problem-solving, short-term memory, analysis, and order. This results in what some would call “short-circuiting”. You begin to experience brain fog, memory relapses, a brief moment of dyslexia, inability to focus on tasks, inability to read for very long, lack of focus, forgetfulness, thinking words but not speaking them, scatterbrained, losing interest very quickly, feeling overwhelmed with understanding the concept of communication and language, sometimes even a desire to not even speak or write. Although this opens up your attraction towards using your heightened senses. You will invest your time with Images, Art, Music, film, Connection, Performance, Dancing, Nature and other kinesthetic forms of expression. Overtime throughout the process you will gain mastery of using both hemispheres at a higher intelligence in a harmonic balance.
