Grounding Kundalini Is Key To Embodying The Energy, Easing The Symptoms And Integrating Its Gifts

Kundalini And Your Soul’s Gifts

Grounding kundalini provides a solution to the discomfort involved with kundalini energy, and a way forward.

It is my hope that I can help you understand why kundalini awakening can be uncomfortable and confusing.

You will learn about what the symptoms of awakening can tell you and how two different individuals can experience this type of awakening in completely different ways.

Most importantly, I will attempt to show you how you can work with this energy to harness it and give it direction.

The entire journey of experiencing the first twinges of a kundalini awakening to the grounding of the energy will get you started on one of the greatest journeys – that of becoming the being you were always meant to be.

What Is Kundalini Energy?

Kundalini is a store of energy that sits dormant at the base of the spine… until it is awakened.

It is often pictured as a coiled snake.

Once a kundalini awakening is initiated, the snake unfurls and travels up the spine, through the chakras, and out the head, connecting the individual to the greater spiritual energy and spiritual evolution.

What Happens When Kundalini Awakens?

A kundalini awakening can be hard to distinguish it from any other type of awakening because all awakenings release energy.

This process is often uncomfortable on a number of levels because a kundalini awakening is basically a shattering of your sense of self.

We all have an idea of what we see as life and our role in it.

We label ourselves with things like mother, chiropractor, teacher, etc.

Each of these labels comes with a set of expectations and rules on how to interact with life.

We limit ourselves to fit into these identities.

When we experience an awakening of any type, this sense of self is stretched to include more of who we are.

In most cases, this causes discomfort because we need to let go of whom we believe we are in order to become who we are meant to be.

6 Common Kundalini Awakening Triggers

There are a variety of ways a kundalini awakening can be triggered. 

1. Kundalini Practice

Participating in a kundalini practice such as kundalini yoga or breathing exercises designed to awaken kundalini energy.

2. Healing Techniques

Some healing techniques will trigger a kundalini awakening.

A kundalini awakening can happen in conjunction with energy healing, massage, chiropractic work, etc.

These are designed to loosen any stuck energy and help it flow and sometimes that happens in a major way.

3. Meditation

When our nervous systems go into defense around trauma, our system removes our awareness from things that were deemed unsafe to feel.

Meditation increases awareness and can release the energy that was bound in us as a result of these survival patterns.

But, of course, it can also connect us with more spiritual states of being and open us to more energy.

4. Mind Altering Substances

Psychedelics, alcohol or mood altering prescription medications can awaken this energy.

By the way, here’s a blog post I did about psychedelics and awakening.

5. Trauma

Trauma such as an accident, or abuse, or growing up in an environment where there was drug abuse, alcoholism or mental illness can trigger an awakening.

Often people who are in an accident or subject to abuse of some sort report an experience of being outside of their bodies.

This can have part of us living in the more spiritual realms and can cause kundalini to arise.

6. Spontaneous Kundalini Awakening

Some people experience a spontaneous awakening.

It is important to understand that any awakening is done on a schedule determined by the universe.

This cosmic timing is perfect, and it will trigger an awakening at the perfect time for you to grow into the being you are intended to be.

Symptoms Of Kundalini Awakening

A kundalini awakening can happen gradually or suddenly.

It stands to reason that the quicker it happens, the more uncomfortable the symptoms may be at first.

Symptoms can be categorized as contractive or expansive.

Most people are drawn to the expansive ones but have an aversion to the contractive ones.


Uncomfortable awakening symptoms can include the inability to sleep or focus.

You may experience strange sensations as you feel the energy flowing through certain body parts or getting stuck in a particular area.

Emotional disturbances are often present.

These can be extreme anger, depression, fear, or any other dark emotion that seems present out of proportion.

Another common symptom of a kundalini awakening is mystery conditions.

These are things like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or autoimmune disorders, Lyme dsease.


Some of the cool symptoms that indicate a kundalini awakening include psychic events such as ESP.

Synchronicities appear frequently.

The individual may experience overall feelings of peace, bliss, or pure joy.

There is a feeling of spaciousness that can’t always be explained.

Now that you know what kundalini awakening is and what it feels like, let’s take a look at grounding kundalini.

Grounding Kundalini

Here’s a video I made on the subject:

…or if you’re the podcast type listen below, and/or find the BioSoul Integration Podcast and this episode where ever you get your podcasts:

Kundalini awakening can feel overwhelming, especially when you are experiencing troublesome symptoms.

In order to work with this energy and allow it to lead you to higher understanding, you need to ground the energy.

Since the thought pathway is so habitual in humans, the increase in energy associated with a kundalini awakening will tend to squirt into the head as thoughts.

We’ll tend to think all sorts of thoughts about how to make the uncomfortable symptoms go away.

The movement of kundalini is purifying us of the energy bound in tension that is associated with an old sense of self.

This old sense of self was formed largely when we were in the womb or when we were little kids–during a time when we weren’t thinking like you and I think right now–we were feeling.

So we can’t think our way out of an awakening, we can only feel our way through.

The first step is to change your perspective of the symptoms.

You need to understand that your body and the world is not working against you.

This awakening is not a mistake. You need to understand that the genie has been let out of the bottle and there is no putting it back in.

Instead of viewing these symptoms as a problem, understand you are undergoing an evolution that the spiritual world believes you are ready for.

Learn to work toward evolution and not fight against it.

Go Toward The Sensations

As your perception changes, focus your attention on the sensations.

Examine them from every angle.

Feel their color, shape, and intensity.

This is also true of emotions.

Emotions have a flavor.

What flavor is your anger?

Feel where the sensations are within your body.

Describe them as fully as possible.

Examine the messages they are sending.

Every moment that you can let your attention rest on the sensations in your body, you are integrating the energy and extracting the wisdom from it.

Moment by moment that information is transferred and integrated into your being.

You are becoming who you are meant to be.

Kundalini Awakening Is About Your Evolution

Kundalini awakening is about evolution.

Life has saw fit to provide you with an opening to further your growth.

This is no mistake.

It is perfect cosmic timing.

Don’t try to fight the awakening.

Instead, embrace this chance to examine the sensations and integrate them into your being.

Know that your current sense of self is only a fragment of what you are.

You are growing and becoming.

As usual, if you enjoyed this information, please like and share it.
