If you’re already practicing Kundalini Awakening techniques, you might wonder if you’re having progress. What are the signs of a Kundalini Awakening?
During the early phases of a Kundalini Awakening you will feel throbbing in the Muladhara chakra. This is the root chakra where Shakti lies dormant until awakening.
Later on you may experience a multitude of signs, or only a few. There is no set rules on what you’re supposed to experience, and each individual experience is unique.
For me, during meditation, I would feel a cool breeze surround me each time I meditated. This coincided exactly with my Kundalini practice and I’ve heard others have the same happen to them.
Later on, beautiful experiences may come in many ways, but I love Sivananda’s explanation below.
“During meditation you behold divine visions, experience divine smell, divine taste, divine touch, hear divine Anahata sounds.
You receive instructions from God.
These indicate that the Kundalini Shakti has been awakened.
When there is throbbing in Muladhara, when hairs stand on their roots, when Uddiyana, Jalandhara and Mulabandha come involuntarily, know that Kundalini has awakened.”

You may feel more energized. New interests may emerge and you will feel drawn to spiritual topics more than ever.
I found great comfort in reading the Bhagavad Gita during my Kundalini Awakening. Its age and wisdom made me feel like I was in good hands.
Kundalini is often depicted as a mother. The Cosmic Mother. Her wisdom is awakened in us through the Kundalini. That’s why we definitely are in good hands.
The Kundalini Awakening Process
It is impossible to know exactly how the Kundalini unfolds for each person.
It would be like writing about life itself. It is unique to each of us.
What is absolutely true though, is that it’s a beautiful process that takes you closer to your own soul.
In my opinion it is the most auspicious miracle that can happen in one’s life.
Preparing For Kundalini Awakening
It is crucial to have a sound mind that is balanced before starting a Kundalini practice.
Having a basic understanding of the chakras will also help tremendously. Knowing what each does and why will help you all through your journey.
For someone desiring to balance, heal and understand these energy centers, it is important to find techniques you resonate with.
Try different methods and see which ones you fall in tune with.
