It was 3am and I was standing in my dark kitchen, right in front of the open refrigerator. That refrigerated air was the only thing keeping my body from going into complete meltdown.

I felt like I was incinerating from the inside out.

This nightly routine repeated itself for almost a week straight. I’d wake up around 3am feeling like hot lava was coursing through my veins, instead of blood. Then I’d head to the kitchen almost in a panic.

I can still remember the relief I felt when that refrigerator door opened.

I was experiencing what’s known as a Kundalini Awakening and mine arrived with a vengeance. Not everyone experiences difficult kundalini awakenings but mine was gut wrenching.
And here’s the thing:

    I don’t know if its’s a kundalini awakening i’m experiencing, but this i my symptoms:
    Fatigue that I really don’t know why.
    Rocking while meditating. Like a program in a washing mashine. Sometimees sideways and paus, then rotating and paus, than back and forth for an example. This started a year ago.
    Lately I’m experiencing heat sensations, primary under scrotum (root chakra?), that comes and goes. Feels like “Tiger balm or Tabasco sauce”.
    I have felt other sensations, like a mobile phone ringing with only vibration in my foot and under psoas muscle ocationly.
    Everything started and develloped after a depression of fatigue april -18.
    My interest in hunting has allso faded. I used to identify me as a passionate hunter. now I don’t know what to do whith that interest. I still like meat, but i’m more drawn to salads than before. I will participate in hunting this fall, mostly for the sake of filling the freezer whith healthy meat instead of bying it and let my dog work. He’s still passionate.

  • #askchritina Hi Christina you could gave possibly already addressed this question somewhere and if Please point me in the right direction. If not are you able to clarify what the difference is between someone going through a spiritual awakening and someone going through a kundalini awakening? Is the only purpose of a kundalini awakening to speed up the healing process?

  • I think you are a beautiful soul. I started my awakening about a year ago, mine has been pretty easy, I’ve had assistance from my husband that passed two Years ago. The most important thing I’ve learned is forgiveness and letting it go. Today I am pain free and one of my autoimmune diseases has vanished. Keep up the good work! You’re an Angel!

    Hi Christina!! I love you and your videos! I want to know if it is possible for the kundalini awakening to happen at a slower, more drawn out pace than what you described in your video. It seems like your experience was a fast and furious explosion of the kundalini which you described as a pop in the base of your spine that created many physical sensations. I am experiencing many of the spiritual-emotional symptoms you describe but not really the physical sensations. Over the last year and definitely over the last few months I am experiencing a lot of the bliss/depression symptoms which make me feel bi-polar. I thought at first it was hormonal imbalance because the feelings of bliss and depression/anxiety wax and wane with my menstrual cycle so I worked really hard at cleaning up my body by eating a super clean diet, exercising daily (I’m a yoga instructor and acupuncture Physician) acupuncture, probiotics, quit smoking marijuana, you name it! My intense moodswings did not really improve much at all even though I’m in amazing physical health/shape. I experience waking up almost every single night at 3 or 4am. I cry at almost anything and have become EXTREMELY emotionally/spiritually sensitive. I am most definitely an empath and my empathic abilities have really really taken off in the last few months. By practice I am a Christian but I am open to and learn from all spiritual paths and am pretty much obsessed with deepening my spirituality and connection to God. I oscillate between feeling super connected to every living being and nature to feeling isolated, alone and deeply disappointed in this world. Some days I want to leave the world and beg God to take me to heaven where there is no suffering and other days I am so connected to my purpose here on this earth to serve humanity with natural medicine and conscious presence. Am I on the verge of a kundalini awakening or has it already happened?? I need to know! I love you!! Thank you!! ❤️

  • Hello and thank you Christina

    In the book by Arthur Avalon entitled “The Serpent Power”
    I found a reference to the big toes turning black, mine did on both feet twice then they grew back I was also feeling intense energy going up my legs to my lower back and other symptoms and mystical experiences
    I’ve looked on google for the last four years but found only a few other references to this symptom
    Do you have knowledge on this topic that you could share with me?..
    By the way… when I started to freak out I found Eckhart Tolle and his books it changed everything
    Love to all, you are love, you are divine

  • Not yet having a Kundalini awakening, but so good to know that there are things that we can do to help when we experience one. Thanks for your insight!

  • Hello Christian
    I’ve been feeling muscle pain from the botom of my feet to the ovaries that I use to have ,too my neck, my shoulders now my hands. I had a blockage that my dream told me and put me in fear so I got rid of it. Now I understand why my body be so thirsty. I thank you for your videos about the Kundalini Awakening. I believe my spiritual guides have sent me to you to help me understand what is going on in my body. I been feeling this for years now every since I was a child and didn’t understand. Thanks again and you have a Great Wonderful Day. ❤💝

  • Hi Christina,
    Thank you so much for your videos.
    I had a kundalini experience while I was alone in a mountain cabin doing yoga. I also go for hiking and sleeping alone in the mountains with a big sleeping bag (it was winter). After two weeks I suddenly feel a tremendous heat in the Manipura Chakra (solar plexus) which feels like burning coal. I got panic because I instinctively knew that nothing can stop this fire. I was very anxious and tried not to fell asleep holding my head out of the window…
    The next day i was OK again and went home. At home I found an experienced zen master who gives me spiritual guidance.

    Best regards

  • Beth, Christina has a spiritual awakening video on YouTube and it’s great.

  • #askchristina
    Hi Christina first off thanks so much for the video I love how you have a psychology background my question is how do you know if your going crazy or if its a spiritual experience? I know you questioned your sanity during your Awakening, for me the crazyness and spiritual awakening started at the same time with my life becoming overwhelming causing panic attacks which forced me to surrender my control to the bigger power at work. So that’s the only thing that makes me believe I’m not going crazy and that it fluctuates too. I’m a much better version of myself since all of this happening I’ve never been clearer but when anxiety hits an I lose my sense of self I feel like I’m going crazy and it doesn’t help that I now fear going crazy so I’m feeding the idea an the worry. Thanks for being you I look up to you so much your my guiding angel xx

    I’m thinking that my kundalini experience is that sometimes I wish I could just check out of this world (die). During my prayers I’ve been asking God if he will just take me home (to heaven) that night while I am sleeping. I feel like this world has become unkind, rude, and scary these days. I want to go home to Jesus, check out, and be in a kinder more loving place again.
    Most people say that you get what you put out there but that isn’t always true. I honestly try my best to be kind, loving, courteous, and good to others but most of the time I receive just the opposite (including my family).
    Politics has made things even worse over the years. Because I voted a certain way, my own brother & sister won’t even talk to me! I don’t judge them for their beliefs but I am judged harshly because I don’t see things the same way they do.
    Meanwhile, I just want to thank you for your kind and loving wisdom and for the way you talk to us and teach us. It is really helping me and I feel better after listening to your videos & reading your emails. May God bless you every day in every way.

  • Mine, I think was very subdued. It just started one night when I was trying to do it. I’m not really sure why I wanted this to begin with , but I started developing my “powers” and decided to not do it anymore because of large and bad negativity hat came in so I quit, But I can go into the swaying back and forth, side to side, round and around, and all different kind of ways. I even have good control over it. It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything this so I don’t really know what meditation tapes I was using, but may still have them around somewhere. Getting into Ti Chi led me to start thinking about it again. I don’t know if I should do it anymore or not. I see 11:11 an awful lot, I went to a Gyro place in the mall here in Augusta GA one time and the total came out to $11.11. What a freak out. I have questions about all this though. Is this God’s plan? or something else. If not then I don’t think I want it. I tell whatever it is to stop when I do meditation, because I’m supposed to be as still as possible. I have huge monkey mind going on so mindful meditation is the name of the game. Having problems with health issues,diabetic neuropathy, gout, restless leg syndrome and some other minor stuff. I found on ebay A Quantum resonant magnetic analyzer, which told me a bunch of stuff including the blocked meridian channels, thats why after several years of Tai Chi, Qigong, and meditation I’m still not able to do much with my chi. I also have some heart issues the machine told me about and may be able to make use of your services. I know this was long, but you know how it is when you gotta let it out. You feel better that you told somebody. I am going to do the heart thing soon, I need it.

  • I am experiencing all of then. Thank you Cristina. You are wonderful!

  • Hi Christina, I believe my guides have helped me to find you. I have been feeling sick to the point I finally had to see a doctor. They have not been able to find anything wrong with my body. I believe I’m having a Kundalini experience because, severe pain in joints , bones ,and skin. I feel like I’m on fire, I can’t sleep,intense emotions, my energy is all over the place, I have suicidal thoughts, I feel as though my life has ended and I don’t know who I am anymore. I have increased sensitivity to hearing, light, colours. I feel as though I have a illness or disease because of extreme physical pain. My husband says he doesn’t know who I am anymore and I agree. I do feel a deep sense of purpose and to help the earth right now. I have been working with a healer for about 2 years because of a lot of my childhood was filled with abuse mental, physical, sexual. I feel like something inside of me is trying to communicate with me. I feel hopeful that I will be just fine after watching your videos. 💖✨💫😊

    P.S. if there is anything else you can think of that would help me I would be ever grateful! Love and blessings to you and all you do.

  • I’ve been experiencing most of the symptoms you described in the video I’m now finally getting some perspective on what’s going on with me. I just want to thank you your videos are blowing my mind in every one I’ve watched I’ve been inspired by to keep going with positviy.

  • Hi #askchristina
    I love your blog. I have had several kundalini experiences.
    The first was with pranayama and was incredibly powerful. I felt the snake moving in my hips and the energy burst up my spine with great force.
    The second in a sound bath where I felt my body dissolve into separate atoms with lots of other amazing stuff.
    And more recently I get strong bursts of energy shooting from my hips after powerful breathing (and orgasm). My whole body moves involuntary in spasms. It feels great but I’d like to learn how to focus or harness this energy.

    Thank you for your loving and powerful words. I am having a smooth awakening since they sent me You ❤️🙏

    Do you think it’s possible to have a Kundalini awakening without going through pain? My awakening started in mars 2021 and since last week I’ve been having the following symptomes:

    1- I feel a hot energy moving from the bottom of my spine up and throughout my whole body sometimes. Forcing my body to move or stretch involatairly. The pain is not so much and mostly it feels very good and relaxing.
    2 – I have been releasing a lot of trauma from pass life and current.

    Thank you 🙂

  • Hi Christina
    Thank you so much for your videos. I am learning so much from you. I am one of those people who had kundalini awakening and didn’t know it until I saw your video. It occurred several years ago over numerous meditations.
    I had a rough childhood and I was holding onto a lot of anger, pain and depression. It was through these mediations that all these negative feelings were healed without me having to work through them. I was also given many lessons during these meditations; so I just gave my guides credit for healing me.
    When people ask me why I am no longer angry I don’t know how to answer. The anger and the pain are just not there anymore. I always wondered how it happened. I feel very fortunate.
    Love your energy💜

  • Hi Christina,

    I believe I am having a kundalini awakening. I have experienced all 14 signs of having one and often feel as of your explaining my own existence to me. You are helping me go from at state of mind of what is happening to me to having an understanding and acceptance of it.
    While I have worked through most of my awakeneining on my own, just within the past few weeks threw a conversation with my estranged brother, ( our relationship has blossomed since we both found we both very spiritually connected to each other and the planet) said it may benefit me to research empath, that it may explain the way I am and always have since childhood experienced the world. Since diving into the world of empaths, and heykoa, and now this kundalini energy, my life has had clarity and my divine purpose is clear to me, I know that I am capable of anything I intend to do, as I can harness the power of the universe to assist me along with my spirit guides, and my celestial energies, which is being referred to by you as Kundalini energy. I had no knowledge of that term until yesterday through your video and so they manifested themselves to me as celeisial beings, the oldest, strongest and wisest of energies, the some the engeries that created all other engeries. They are Celest and Sabastion, they are Male kundalini energies, brothers of the same flame, split when the dark energies separated from the good forces, in the beginning of existence there are two few.male kundalini energies left in existence, there many more female kundalini energies left then male.
    Ok , well , that just droppesnin my head,

    My question though is while I have worked threw most of these kundalini awakening symptoms on my own, my significant other keeps trying to stop by kundalini energy from pushing me towards my destiny, he has some inner child damage, and childhood trauma himself, and while I have a great desire to hold him and help him heal, I can not fight my destiny, and when I attempt to stop this energy I end up physically I’ll, with extreme debilitating anxiety, and recently have had trip to the ER in an ambulance sue to low blood sugar.
    Is there a way I can get my very spiritual very significant other to both look within himself and heal himself, and also get him to stand beside me instead of in front of or behind me. I do not want to destroy the man, I want to help his hurting soul and help him heal , but when his need to be helped to heal interfere with my kundalini energy, I feel like I am going to use all the forces in the cosmos to destroy him, so he is in my way no longer.
    I do love him and do not want to leave him, he loves me too. Any suggestions on what I can do so I an not aiming all this energy at him. #ask Christina

  • I just watched this video 🙂 Thank you. When I (believe I) had some kind of an awakening, I saw the very white light for seconds. Even when I was sleeping (or trying to sleep :D) in the night, it was like the lights are all on around me. I was living like that for weeks, like I haven’t even been living in this world. I did not have the involuntary movements, but I felt like shit for a very long time. It happened in 2019 – almost three years ago, but I still have periods, when I am extremely tired. After this happened, the next spring my back muscles got a very serious inflammation. And no doctors found the reason. The shifts in the energy level are there the whole time. After this period of “ecstasy” passed, I got very deeply sad and depressed somehow, like nothing in this world has a meaning and everything is grey. I have now mainly a continuous shifting of a deep feeling of safety and the deepest fears I can possibly have. Interesting…
