All it takes is knowledge, willingness, and practice to awaken your kundalini. So, why doesn’t everyone do it?

The best answer is that this powerful energy only activates at the right time within a soul’s journey. Therefore, the knowledge and willingness to start the practice of kundalini awakening will never manifest until the person is ready.

Once you are ready, you will know because it literally won’t be difficult — it will feel like you are on your true path.

Read on to discover the process of how kundalini awakening works in three stages.

Stage 1: The Study of Kundalini

The first of the kundalini awakening stages is knowledge or the study of kundalini. Most people have never heard of the definition of kundalini yoga or of its awakening process. So, if you are reading this article it means that you are beginning your journey here.

Let’s begin…

Kundalini Awakening Definition

Kundalini energy is the force of the divine feminine (shakti) that grounds us to Earth in physical form. Awakening this energy starts a process of ascension from within the body in the form of energetic fields. In physics, these are called electrons, however, their capacity as spiritual catalysts is widely hidden from public knowledge.

This is where your chakras and nadis (or energy centers and energy pathways) come into play. Think of these two terms as storage centers (chakras) and roadways (nadis) for charged electrons — or prana in the spiritual sense — to move throughout the body in the form of electricity — or energy in spiritual terms.

Clearing Nadis and Chakras

There are three main nadis (out of 72,000 total): the ida (left side), pingala (right side), and sushumna (center). Nadis’ paths must be clear and evenly active in order to move kundalini energy up from the base of the spine through each chakra to the crown chakra.

Meeting at the Ajna chakra (third eye) along the sushumna, ida and pingala open up a new portal of awareness. Once this awareness is achieved, a kundalini awakening occurs by energy releasing from the crown.
