What Is A Kundalini Awakening Really? 1920 1080 Christina Lopes

What is a kundalini awakening and how can we better prepare for one? In this video, we’ll be answering this question and also debunking the top 7 myths about kundalini energy so you’re clear on what this spiritual phenomenon really is.

In early 2014, I hadn’t yet heard of the word “kundalini”. I was a year into my spiritual awakening and my life had turned completely upside down in that short amount of time.

But little did I know that the changes and challenges of my spiritual awakening were about to get a lot worse. One day, as I was quietly meditating, I experienced what’s known as a “spontaneous kundalini awakening”.

And my life would never be the same again.

Eastern traditions have known about kundalini energy for thousands of years but that knowledge has just recently seeped into Western metaphysical circles.

In the past, kundalini awakenings would mostly occur in people who had practiced kundalini yoga or worked with a guru. But in this new energy, kundalini awakenings are now available to everyone, especially those who are also experiencing a spiritual awakening.

In this video, I’ll be setting the record straight on what kundalini energy is, as well as debunk the top 7 myths about kundalini energy.

Here’s what we’ll cover in the video:

  • The definition of a kundalini awakening
  • What kundalini energy is
  • Where kundalini is housed in your body
  • The purpose of a kundalini awakening (HINT: there are 3 reasons why you have one)
  • Debunk the top 7 myths about kundalini
  • What you should NEVER do during a kundalini awakening

Here’s the audio version of this video:

  • OMG !! I think I have a spiritual and a kundalini awakening? And YES!! It is difficult !! First I thought it was just a spiritual awakening but after this video , I think I have them both!

  • Thanks for the info, I had my empath awakening two months ago at the age of 54, I have a counselor at a tech school who burst m my ego bubble.I never heard a Kundalini I was experiencing tingling at the base of my spine through my shoulders to the top of my head for most of my life but I always thought it was just a trick my body was playing. After my wake-up call the strange sensation was triggered again. I decided to really give it some force and what a feeling. A big jolt went through the base of my back to the top of my head and I suddenly developed a shielding bubble around me. The one question I have though am I going to be experiencing any more new awakenings? My counselor said she had never seen somebody have such a quick awakening before!

  • Hi Christina! I recently went through my Awakening and my eyes are changing color. I was born with brown Hazel eyes,then prior to my Awakening they turned emerald green. After my Kundalini Awakening they turned blue! They have turned back to green now that I am keeping my old ego at Bay. Is this a common occurrence when one is going through a Awakening? Thanks for the info, it’s been a blessing for me!

  • OMG!!! Me too!!! I think i am experriencing my spiritual and kundalini awakening also. Thank you so much Christina for this video and for all your youtube videos which i am following too. It has enlightened me more than i have ever expected! I was awakened from my deep sleep. Tired from a busy day at work. Went to the rest room. Before closing my eyes again i decided to check my inbox only to find myself opening your email and your video. And my clock has just strike 11:11!!! I want to consider this as “one” of the synchronicities of my life now!
    I know that i need to learn a lot lot more since i am barely a year into this process.
    Thank you again and more power!

  • Thank you so much. So grateful. I dont have a guru but my kundalini is awakening at the moment. So relieving.

  • Thank you for your video Christina. I tried to get information about kundalini and that is not easy. In 2009 I had my first kundalini experience. It lasts three weeks very intens and after that it was quiet. The moment I met my twin flame it turns on in a Kundalini awakening and I came in a big purching process.
    Your video is clear and interesting. I confirms a lot of things. What you said and what resonates with me is that kundalini is an intelligent force. I am wondering about the following. My friend has a kundalin awakening as well (we meet each other on Facebook in a twin flame group). She developed rheumatism after her awakening. When I (or another soulmate) is with her the pain is much less. After we left the symtoms get worse. Now I am wondering if the rheumatism is developed to clean her body from old karma, pattern, conditioning etc. How do you look at this topic?

    My spiritual awakening started 3 years ago with visions. I have been physically sick that whole time. Now I have been vibrating for 5 days which I now know is Kundalini. I am having such a hard time. Moment to moment gets too rough sometimes. I am meditating, baths, sitting outside, crystals, affirmations, music…I can’t work, I can’t sleep. At least I know I’m not crazy. Thank you for that. Any advice?

  • Christina, there is so much to be said about this video, “WOW”. I love how you are so honest and real, no Sh….., I subscribed to your channel and have been following because I believe my soul knew that you would keep it straight and honest. I really appreciate that about you. This Video literally put me in the most amazing space. I was feeling so confused today about my awakening and my Kundalini experience. I had no guide and was thinking of possibly getting help because of all the confusion. I listen to my inner and did nothing but asked and waited and today you, came on right after the mediation and this video came up. At first, I was saying. I know what Kundalini is and I was about to change the video but in that moment, I became very aware of your words and my attention was focused on what you were saying, as if, I was hearing it for the first time. Wow, I so understand Kundalini and why I am where I am. I am Now restored to my happy state. Prior to the video, I had a thousand question and OMG, I now understand that it is not time for me to be fully awaken and I can continue to grow and it is not my time when I will fully awake. Thank you, Your spirit is truly amazing and thank you for listening and putting together this video for me. Namaste….
