Is It Possible To Awaken Kundalini On Your Own?
The answer here is definitely YES. A Kundalini Awakening is our inner, divine potential.
I was 24 years old when I first came into contact with Kundalini literature. I quickly realized this was the answer to everything I had been searching for spiritually.
In my early 20s I explored the world of philosophy to figure out the “meaning of life“.
I never found it there. Every philosophy lacked something I was yearning for. Only later did I know this was a spiritual connection to something greater within me.
I was 24 years old at the moment I started reading about Kundalini Awakening, I felt that this was IT.
A month later I was trying out every technique I could find in books and on the internet.
I don’t know why, but I was so inspired by all the wondrous things I had read, that I never read or noticed any words of warning on awakening the Kundalini.
I made myself a routine of techniques that I practiced, but could only hope for results. There wasn’t anybody I knew that had tried to do this, nor were any of my friends even aware of the Kundalini.
I continued onwards alone, with no one to explain these new ideas or my practice to.
Before I continue sharing my personal story and what happened the next few months, I want to talk about some of the wondrous things I had read while researching the Kundalini Shakti.
You’ll then be better able to understand my frame of mind and how I became so incredibly inspired and determined.
Benefits of a Kundalini Awakening
1. Chakra Awakening
Before I started working with the Kundalini, I had done Third Eye meditations for a couple of years.
I came to realize through my research that the most effective way of awakening ALL chakras was through a Kundalini Awakening.
Kundalini would rise and activate each chakra on its path towards its destination, which is the crown chakra.
2. Experiencing Shiva/Shakti Union
The Kundalini is a manifestation of both god and goddess, Shiva and Shakti. Through its awakening I would know the secrets and experience this union for myself.
3. True Enlightenment
While it is not instantaneous, Kundalini leads the way to an enlightened mind. Kundalini is both spiritual and physical and cleanses away the karma that has accumulated through lifetimes.
Those were my main reasons for pursuing a Kundalini Awakening. I had no clue whether it would happen in a month, a year or a lifetime then, but I was convinced I would experience all three.
My Personal Results
After a couple of weeks I could notice frustration in my system. This was mostly due to the fact that I practiced celibacy to accelerate my efforts.
The build-up of energy in the root and sacral chakra happens very quickly when you conserve it in this way. I am skipping ahead a tiny bit here by going into the specific techniques, but will elaborate further later.
One Month of Practice
After one month of practicing the techniques I could feel a burning sensation down by the root chakra.
It wasn’t very pleasant, but I was extremely happy about it. From my reading, this was to be expected, and this just proved that I was on the right path.
The theory behind all of this was the energy would accumulate in the root chakra, and when the energy reached sufficient levels, Shakti would uncoil from its position in the root chakra.
This is when the magic started very gently to happen. I could still feel a burning sensation in my lower back, but there were days where I also felt a kind of bliss I had never before experienced.
I was convinced this was Shakti finally being able to travel beyond its dormant resting place, and reach higher up into new chakras.
From the books I had found, I read that a Kundalini Awakening would bring sensations in the spine that were different for each individual.
After 3 months I felt what can be described as water flowing from the root chakra and up the spine. It was pleasant, and I can’t say how happy I was to feel this!
To me, this was a miracle greater than anything I had ever known. The sensation only came once in a while, perhaps once every day.
Otherwise, everything was normal. I didn’t feel a sudden change in any way. One thing had changed though, my beliefs about what’s possible to achieve is just one of them.
This was 10 years ago now, and the story above changed my life forever, in a positive way. There are so many stories to tell and things to elaborate on, which this website will do.
A Kundalini Awakening is a miracle that we’re born with. It rests within us in the root chakra, and it waits for us to say YES and follow its path towards awakening.
10 Years Later – What Happened?
I continued to practice and understand the Kundalini ever since those first 3 months of practice.
After a few months I realized that awakening the Kundalini meant that it was always with me. I would do certain Yoga movements and poses that helped the energy flow, and could at those times feel the same pleasant sensations flowing through my spine.
I had many small and big experiences of spiritual awakening since then, and I attributed all of them the Kundalini. It was as if we were a team working towards a higher goal. Today, I believe that is a fact.
I experienced what I call Shiva/Shakti union and my awareness would continually grow. I mention all these briefly here, but will write in more detail later.
Kundalini Awakening Techniques
I want to share with you one of the techniques I used during those three months. What I understood in time, was that you only need to awaken it once, if you do it the right way.
After the initial awakening, it only needs kindling using less effort.
Kundalini Awakening Chakra Visualization
This technique was essential in my practice. I would do this visualization once a day, sometimes twice. I only spent 5-10 minutes every day, but it was definitely a key element.
The visualization started by seeing the root chakra in your mind’s eye. I would simply imagine a red energy center near where I had learnt its location was.
Then I visualized the two energies, Ida and Pingala, slowly start to coil upwards.
These two energies are manifestations of the male and the feminine in the Cosmos. Shiva and Shakti.
I would see them flow and coil upwards, slowly reaching the sacral chakra.
I am not good at imagining anything, nor at doing visualizations, but I kept doing it every single day. You know why? Kundalini doesn’t care how well you do it, it is the intention behind it that matters.
The key to any visualization technique is the intention and the focus you put into it. Focus is energy. What we’re doing is directing energy into the root chakra, where Shakti is dormant.
I continued the visualization seeing Shakti flow and coil beyond the sacral chakra and into the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Each chakra went through the same process and finally I visualized the energy reaching Sahasrara, the crown chakra.
This is just one of the techniques I used, but this is a very powerful technique you may use and test out.
The illustration below shows you exactly what you should visualize happening within you.
It is super important to work on your chakras for Kundalini to flow smoothly. Use this chakra test to know which chakra needs your focus
Is Kundalini Awakening Dangerous?
After ten years and looking back, my answer is finally no.
Awaken it properly and with the intention to awaken spiritually, you will be safe. Kundalini Shakti is the cosmic mother within us, that wants to nurture our growth and reaching our full potential in life.
During these ten years I often wondered about this question, and many times I read warnings online. In time I simply stopped listening and continued meditating, practicing my techniques and growing spiritually.
I believe anyone with a sound and grounded mind can have a Kundalini Awakening safely.
Once you start to practice this technique you should pay attention to these Kundalini Awakening signs. Just be clear that your awakening is unique and all of it won’t apply to you.
A proper Kundalini Awakening is permanent, so make sure this is a path you want to take.
I will write more about this later, but for now, just remember that the evolution of your soul and spirit is protected by the Cosmic Mother and Shiva, and you should not fear a Kundalini Awakening, because it will take you closer to both.
I am creating a course right now that will teach you how to awaken the Kundalini safely and in the most effective way. If there is something you’d like to see featured inside the course, leave suggestions below.
Also, if you have any questions about Kundalini Awakening, I’ll see it and answer your comments below.
A Kundalini Awakening requires that you keep your chakras balanced and energized. This is true before and after Shakti starts working her magic on your energy system.
Meditation, pranayama, mantras are all techniques that can be practiced. Everything in us is energy at the deepest level, and sound is one of my favorite methods of balancing the chakras.
These two programs are both great resources when it comes to balancing the chakras:

Did you ever have sex with a woman and feel the kundalini? Or is it entirely a “do it yourself” thing for you?
Sorry on continuing my commend above I just wondering if there would be any problem with kundalini awakening ?
Thank you so much for sharing your video and experience on kundalini awakening .
I am doing chakra meditation for a month now and I feel the energy is building up as I focus everyday on my chakras .
I have a health condition and is related to my csf fluid . It leaks out and causes headache and neck pain sometimes .
It does feel really good when the energy rises on my crown chakras .
hey i mean not a ritual sorry my brother is mad so not ritual but thank you jon
Hi i read your Sentences about shakti so can you please do a ritual for me you can ask my keeper what i mean
Hi, I heard if you are older that it would not be a good idea it would too much. I am speaking of 30 more years to when yours happened. Is this true?
Hi Ann! 🙂 That’s a great question. When Kundalini awakens it is permanently with you. So even if it awakened in my twenties I will still have to work with Kundalini later in life. It really depends on you, if you’re healthy in body and mind I don’t see any danger in it. I also believe Kundalini Shakti knows well if your physical body can handle the energy. Just stay with sober sources on the subject that teaches a healthy balance.
My name is Gary Cocciolillo I have a podcast called Everything Imaginable. I would love to have you on my podcast I record via Zoom with no video. Would you be interested in being interviewed?
Here is a link to my podcast.
Thank you so much,
Sorry but I just don’t get why you would invite other to have demonic experiences in their body. The third eye is something that God does not want us to open as it invite the demons you mention throughout this posting. Jesus is the only way to enhance life, period. All other is occultism period. Please ask god to show you why you should not do any of this. I will pray for all of you to be cleansed of this demonic practice.
Jesus said in Matthew 6:22, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”
I disagree. For you it may be a good experience but for many it is a terrible experience and for me it was forced upon me in a bodywork session while I was asleep. The things you are enthralled with about it are the things I do not accept about it and I will never accept it. This is my body and my life. God wants us to come to him of our own volition. Not be forced into submission by some crazy energy force. Period.
Does one need a Guru initiation to awaken (seed) the kundalini ? Or can daily visualization practice simply work?
You can do it alone. The true Guru is a part of Kundalini, and that’s within you. I listened to several gurus online, but ultimately initiation is through the knowledge itself. If you practice visualization, mantra, or any technique, you can absolutely do it on your own. 🙂 Some become Kundalini Awakened without even knowing about Kundalini, so that proves no Guru is needed, but it can be a benefit.
I really enjoyed reading this, Jon.
I still find it so totally and utterly amazing that you had to work so hard to achieve your kundalini goal, but for me it was spontaneous.
I feel so, so blessed…..?????〽️?
Hi Jon. I did some other yoga technique to awaken Kundalini. Although I felt some cool waves, I am not sure as to whether i felt it actually or was it my imagination. To be true, I really don’t know whether my Kundalini is active or not. I Never felt any rising surge from root to crown chakra, but I am very interested to experience it. Do I have access to any practices which you did? Can you guide me? Do I have to take some precautions before the practices?
Hi Sarath 🙂 I have included some of the techniques in this post and in the pdf you get when subscribing. There’s also powerful info in the video at the bottom. All of those techniques work if you put them to work! 🙂 You can find more techniques, but I’d really recommend sticking to a few. If you try new ones all the time you’ll never get good at one or two. If you have a healthy body and a balanced mind, you should be all good to awaken Kundalini. In my opinion, it is the best yoga and the one that leads to the greatest results.
Thanks a lot Jon. I would start it right away.
Hi Jon, thank you for writing this in such a captivating way! What a beautiful way to share your journey and experience in order to help others. Excited for your course to come out.
Thank you so much, Genesis 🙂
Can this be practised by a person who is not into meditation or yoga but suffering from chronic illnesses such as blood pressure and bronchitis? Aged29. Would it be right to start practising it to become overcome disease ?
Hi Mary! The short answer is yes. I believe 100% that every form of meditation and yoga is healthy. It can heal both mind, soul, and body. Kundalini is in my opinion the most healing path of them all. I used to have an allergy to cats. It completely disappeared. I’m not telling random people (or those who are not spiritual) that Kundalini healed my allergy, but that is what I believe.
I believe healing like this is possible because the body is just a blueprint. Spirit -> mind -> body. When we heal a chakra, that effects our mind and our body at the same time. And the greatest way to heal the chakras is through Kundalini.
Yoga, meditation, and Kundalini is a path towards health in every way. So yes, if the person wants health, any practice they are willing to do can help tremendously.
Just to end my answer. I do believe in miracles also, but it took a few years to heal my allergy. Always have patience and faith – and good things will come.
Have a great day Mary! Thanks for saying hi with your great question! 🙂 I might write more on this later. Just remember that this is a topic where everyone is afraid of giving advice because it deals with health issues, and nobody wants to make claims that get them sued! 😉
I’ve been meditating for sometime. I’ve experience some sort of intense energy waves in my head all day. Its like wobbling , pulsating, tightness and breeze of cool air all over my body especially on the top of my head.
Do you have any idea what that is Jon?
Hey Seth! Great to hear that. Time invested in meditation is always fruitful. The effects you talk about definitely has to do with chakra energies.
I had very similar experiences with Kundalini during meditation. Cool air is especially a common thing to notice. The pulsating energy too.
Because it’s on top of your head it sounds like the crown chakra is active! With meditation it’s difficult to say exactly what’s going on, but important to trust the energy flowing through you. Nothing wrong with what you’re experiencing, I’d see it as a great success.
If you feel it’s uncomfortable take a break from the meditations or keep going if you don’t mind. Meditation will clear up karmic blockages in the chakras. That can feel exactly like this.
So I’d say take a break if you want, but you’re doing something right and that’s great! 🙂
Thanks, this is really enlightening and i am glad you said that it is not unsafe to practise..
Thank you, mahalakshmi 🙂 Yes, it’s our inner divine energy, therefore it’s more than just safe, it’s our protection and guide on the spiritual path.
Hi, nice to here your awesome method very exiting indeed can’t purchase right now but I’m viewing your page thank you regards, shaz!
