Lately, there has been a buzz around the word kundalini and what it means to have a "kundalini awakening." Is it dangerous? How do I know if what I'm experiencing is kundalini, or something else entirely? What do I do if my kundalini energy is waking up?
Lots of "symptoms" get blamed on kundalini – from muscle spasms to seeing colors vividly to not being able to sleep. Likely, it's not the kundalini energy itself that is causing problematic symptoms, but the physical, energetic, and mental blockages that are not allowing that energy to flow. Kundalini energy is divine feminine energy that awakens the awareness that exists in all of us. When we experience kundalini "symptoms," that energy is knocking on the door to get our attention and awareness so that we can make positive changes. When that happens, we can become who we are meant to be and wake up to our destiny.
The soul has taken a body and come here for a reason, and if you are not living out that purpose, kundalini can show up as disruptive so you can change course. It's a (sometimes not so gentle) reminder so that we don't sleepwalk through life.

5. Increased Sensitivity to External Things (Food, Media, People and Places)
We become our own healers by becoming aware of what we need in the moment, and learning the skills to take care of ourselves.
We can express who we are, and feel our connection to the Divine more and more. We can begin to do what we came here to do.
