Kundalini Awakening

How Does It Aid Enlightenment?

➤ By Liz Oakes

Kundalini awakening entails the kundalini energy moving up the spine from base to crown, and is associated with the idea of 'enlightenment'.

Serpent energy has been written about in literature for a very long time. 

The process revolves around the concept that you have a kundalini serpent, that is said to reside at the base of your spine.

The kundalini energy is associated with the Serpent that is said to dwell there at the base of the spine, wrapped three and a half times around the sacrum, until it is roused.

When this serpent rises up and makes its way to the crown, you are said to be enlightened.

Be aware that many people have health issues from the awakening of their kundalini, so make sure that you educate yourself well before purposely doing any processes to make this happen.

How To Awaken Kundalini

Individuals vary, and although kundalini awakening may often happen spontaneously, it may take years of doing certain spiritual practices.

Some of these are very special, in-depth practices, and by using specific crystals at the same time it is possible to aid the process to awaken the kundalini serpent.

If you desire to use crystals to do this, one of the best stones to use is Serpentine Stone.

Using these crystals as part of the process is very useful, as they are known to alleviate some of the possible discomfort that it is possible to feel.

Using Serpentine allows you to clear the chakras as the movement occurs.

If you feel you want to participate in these practices please ensure that you take advice from extremely knowledgeable experts, as some people have been known to have bad side effects from doing this.

Kundalini Activation Awakening Your Serpent Power

Kundalini awakening is related to 'enlightenment', and there are many books that cover this whole process in great detail.

It is important that you educate yourself if you are going to do this, as there is a lot more to the process than is outlined here.

The experience of kundalini awakening relates to the Kundalini energy moving from the base of the spine starting at the base chakra and moving up via the center of the spine.

This energy makes its way up to the crown chakra where it emerges, and can be like an enormous snake hovering over your head.

The energy of the process will cause the opening of the channel as it moves through it, and it is known to clear each chakra as it goes, until it reaches the pinnacle at the crown.

The intensity of this experience often stimulates sexual feelings as it opens new areas to create 'enlightenment'.

This action may happen quite spontaneously in some people, but in most others it is the end result of particular processes.

If you want to combine using crystals with anything else that you may do as part of the process, use Serpentine and others from the list of helpful stones for this purpose.


Used as part of this activation, these crystals will help to alleviate part of the likely discomfort that is felt by many people who undergo this spiritual process. 

This is because the vibration of these stones will help you to clear the chakras as the process occurs.

Before attempting to do this, it is very important to read all the information that you can find on Kundalini awakening, as there are known to be side effects if you force the process to happen, when you are not really ready for its effects.

My Experience: Arousing My Kundalini Serpent

I did not have bad side effects when I had a personal experience of kundalini awakening. 

It happened spontaneously to me quite a few years ago, while I was participating in a group doing a shamanic ceremony. 

I had been using a range of different crystals prior to this happening, but I am unsure if this was related to what happened.

I am strongly clairaudient, and as the amazing kundalini serpent emerged he twisted his head and neck around and looked at me, and then spoke directly into my mind, and said 'I am Kundalini'.

The words thundered through me, so I had no doubt of what was happening.

Having this enormous serpent (more like a dragon or a type of lizard) hovering over my head was very freaky, I can tell you, although it disappeared quite quickly afterwards.

Except for strong fatigue I was fortunate that I did not have side effects from this unexpected experience.

Yet it was still quite scary when it happened unexpectedly, as I knew nothing about it before this. 

Yet regardless of how and why it happened, it was the beginning of the next stage of my spiritual journey.

Kundalini awakening is said to bring enlightenment, but what is this concept "enlightenment"?

I believe that enlightenment is an immediate and often startling discovery of your own understanding of your spiritual journey, and self confidence and belief in this discovery. With most people you will understand once you discover it for yourself.

Have An Awareness Of Possible Side Effects

Educate yourself if you are going to do this, as there is a lot more to learn than the information outlined above. Kundalini awakening is associated with the idea of 'enlightenment'.

Although that may sound exciting, please meditate on this first, so you are sure that you are ready for it to occur.

Larimar crystals such to the one shown in the image here, are helpful stones if you have side effects related to this awakening, as their energy is calming and soothing.

If you wish to activate your kundalini energy, it is very important that you are clear about why you wish to do this, and that you are definite about having a deep awareness of possible side effects.

If it happens spontaneously then clearly this is the plan that your higher self and spirit has for you.

Once you have awakened the kundalini serpent at the base of your spine, you may find that your life changes dramatically.

How To Achieve Kundalini Awakening

This is similar to some crystal healing methods.

Placing specific stones at each chakra is known to create the necessary energy changes to start the kundalini awakening process.

This is easier to do with the help of someone else and it will be more successful too.

While different people use the stones in various ways, using them in a body layout is a quite easy and effective method. You will be laying stones on the body if you use this method.

If you can get stones that are flat on one side they will make better contact, and they are easier to keep in place.

The energy of the kundalini moves up the spine, from the base chakra until it emerges at the crown chakra.

Helpful Stones To Use

Place a piece of Serpentine or Atlantisite at the base or root chakra, where the kundalini sits and then another at the crown chakra to draw the kundalini up the spine.

If you use Serpentine stone or Atlantisite, which is Stichtite in Serpentine, this may assuage some of the possible discomfort that it is possible to experience.

So Atlantisite would be one of the best stones to use for this purpose. These two stones are said to be the safest stones to aid you, if you want to activate the Kundalini.

If you can get flat stones that sit flat on the skin this will help you to keep them in place. You may choose to add other stones at each chakra to aid the rise of the energy.

You may combine them with any of the other stones on the list if you wish, so look at the list and see which ones you already have.

Your helper may have another stone, and stroke it along the spine from bottom to top to aid the rise of the kundalini.

Having other kundalini stones in contact with the body may be an advantage though not essential.

Place the higher vibration stones, such as the high crystal energy stones Moldavite, Fulgurite, Cryolite or Brookite at both the third eye and the crown chakra.

Can Be Quite Challenging In Some People

In a number of people these experiences are reported to be quite challenging, and it is known that some feel this serpent power to be like a hot flame as it makes its way up.

Note: It has been known to be dangerous in some cases so please ensure that you clearly educate yourself on the possible dangers before you start.

List Of Stones to Use For Kundalini Awakening

Both Moldavite and Shiva Lingam stone is known to create transformation, so may be powerful aids in this process.

There may be other stones other than the ones on the list below that may aid the process of kundalini awakening.

The ones discussed here are either stones that I have personally experienced or ones that are well known to help you for this purpose.

Most people feel a strong level of fatigue afterwards, and this may last for some days.

If you awaken your kundalini, you may experience a wide range of different affects, so please read up on these so you are calm if these occur.

Different people react in different ways so please take care.

Note: When you use the vibration of crystals to help and support your healing remember that crystals are part of an holistic approach to your health.

Metaphysical healing uses universal energy so does not stand alone and can be used with any other type of healing. 

Using the energy of crystals for healing yourself is about finding a way to enhance conventional medicine not replace it. So always seek out medical treatment for any worrying health issue.
