Kundalini Symptoms List: Have You Had Awakening?

Kundalini Symptoms List

For those who go through a Kundalini awakening, it will be one of the most powerful, confusing, traumatic, and liberating things they will experience in their lives.

There are several techniques and practices you can use to reach this point. It’s really a personal journey and something that affects everyone differently.

For some, it can even be hard to tell if you’ve really had a Kundalini awakening as it’s often a profound and confusing experience.

If you are looking for symptoms to confirm you’ve tapped into this powerful energy that exists within us, here are some of the most common physical, psychological, spiritual, and emotional Kundalini symptoms to look for:

Physical Kundalini Symptoms

Here are some of the physical symptoms you may experience:

  • Feeling anything from a lightheaded, fuzzy and confused state, to headaches and throbbing.
  • Temporary changes in the sensitivity of your hearing. From being sensitive to noise to not being able to hear well.
  • Temporary changes in your eyesight. From light feeling too bright and an increase in sensitivity to seeing darkness.
  • A drastic change in your core temperature. This can range from feeling too hot or too cold.
  • Skin and allergy issues. Flare-ups of old skin issues or allergic reactions to things around you.
  • Digestive issues. Your taste for foods may change, as well as how much you eat and the times you feel hungry.
  • Weight change. As a result of changes in diet and digestive issues, you may experience either weight loss or weight gain.
  • Sleeping issues. Anything from insomnia to feeling tired and fatigued throughout the day and experiencing interrupted sleep.
  • Weakness, such as loss of muscular strength, weakness in your joints, and so on.
  • Aches and pains. You may experience aches and pains across your body that seem to come and go randomly, and muscle twitches are normal.

Psychological Kundalini Symptoms

Here are some of the psychological symptoms you may experience:

  • A word that most people use is – overwhelmed.
  • You may start experiencing vivid or lucid dreams.
  • Increased sensitivity. This means you will find extreme things like violence, birth, death, etc a lot more traumatizing than before.
  • Dreams or visions of snakes. People tend to see snakes as they symbolize a transformation.
  • Feelings of rebirth. Like you’ve been through a complete transformation – which you have.
  • Depression. Unfortunately feeling down or having mood swings is normal, this is part of the process of letting go of the past.
  • Increased anxiety. This is usually worse for people who were already anxious.
  • An empathetic pain for suffering and pain you see around you.
  • A deep, profound child-like joy and excitement.
  • Strong mood swings that you feel you’re not in control of.

Spiritual Kundalini Symptoms

Here are some of the spiritual symptoms you may experience:

  • An out of body experience. This will be very personal and is usually difficult to explain to others.
  • A deeper understanding and connection to spiritual activities and teachings.
  • A profound feeling. This will mean different things to different people, but you’ll typically have 
  • Spiritual visions, like seeing a white light, spiritual visions that are personal to you.
  • Enhanced extrasensory perceptions; an increase in sensitivity to the touch, to your hearing, sight, and sense of smell.
  • A deep intrinsic feeling that you now “belong” to the place where you are in your life.
  • Feeling connected to the spiritual world.
  • Psychic experiences; feeling like you know something will happen before it does.
  • Visions and feelings from a past life, or experiences you can associate with a previous life.
  • You are able to have deeper conversations with people, and may even see people’s aura.

Emotional Kundalini Symptoms

Here are some of the spiritual symptoms you may experience:

  • Feelings of fear for things happening in the world or to those around you.
  • Mood swings ranging from anger to happiness, often feeling confusing and random.
  • Feelings of disgust at things happening in the world that you don’t agree with.
  • Exaggerated emotions in general.
  • Intense joy and happiness, in a way like you’ve never felt before.
  • Feelings of “release”. Like you’ve let go of all the things that were holding you back from being the best you.
  • Greater self-awareness and the ability to look deep into your soul and understand what makes you, you.
  • A selfless desire to help others.
  • The ability to form deeper, more meaningful connections with others.
  • You’ll start to understand and appreciate other people’s emotions more.

In Summary

The feelings that come with a Kundalini awakening can be extremely difficult to manage for some people.

The best advice I can offer is to not be afraid to reach out for help if you need it. You should try to embrace the positives, and reduce the negatives where possible.

You’ll almost certainly have a deep sense of purpose, a rush of energy, a better connection to both mother Earth and the spiritual world – it’s truly profound and incredibly rewarding.

  1. Hi, my kundalini awakening is causing severe body symptoms. I have severe neck cramps that are unbearable. Can you offer me any advice please? Thank you, Helen x

  2. I have flash light in between by eyes, feel I’m being lifted up high while meditating. It happens as soon as I start meditation. Why so?
