Tulpas: Intelligent Companions Created By Your Thoughts

Published

What are our thoughts? Do they exist independently of our mind with the ability to influence reality? Are they construct created by the mental and emotional faculties of our soul? If so, how do these abilities shape consciousness when creating thoughts? One idea from all these questions relates to a phenomenon known as “tulpa”. In this article, I will share with you some interesting information about tulpas, what they are and how they influence our reality.

Introduction

In many world religions, mystical and esoteric traditions, there is a belief that as soon as a thought arises, it becomes a real entity that exists separately from the thinker. In this case, we are talking about a tulpa, a game of imagination or a truly autonomous entity that exists in the brain of the “master” who created it.

Tulpas have their own personalities, opinions, and actions that do not depend on the people that created them. They are conscious entities that are aware of themselves and the world they live in. A fully formed tulpa is a conscious and intelligent being created by the thought of a person – its master.

Tulpa is created by focusing on one thought and saturating that thought with intense emotions. This is how tulpas become something more than just mental energy. Created mental forms and tulpas exist in all spiritual realities and constitute the so-called imaginary Kingdom.

This imaginary Kingdom is the repository of the formations and energies of collective thinking. Thought-forms and tulpas can be experienced physically, but in most cases, they are perceived as phenomena. However, they exist as separate entities that manifest as physical formations.

What is Tulpa?

Tulpas are thoughtforms that originate in Tibetan Buddhism and the Bön religion. According to these traditions, tulpas are consciously created beings or objects. The word tulpa literally means “emanation” or “manifestation”.

There are many equivalents of tulpa in different religions and spiritual teachings. Some pagans believe that tulpas exist on the astral plane. They can appear on their own or be created by the effort of a person.

Thoughts and Tulpas

According to some theosophists, there are three kinds of thought-forms. The first kind takes the form of a thinker. The second one is the one that takes the image of a material object. The third one takes its own form expressing its inherent qualities. To this list may be added the fourth kind, which takes the collective thought-form known as the egregore. Although there are four different types of thought-forms, they have similar qualities.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these thought-forms.

1.Thought-forms that take a form of a thinker

In this case, the imagination of the thinker is concentrated on a thought that he/she is located somewhere in a different place. With an intense focus on this thought, people see themselves in a different place performing different actions. They have created a way of thinking about themselves that is separate from them, has autonomy and mental consciousness.

In some cases, other people may see and feel that person’s projection as a vision. Well known is the example of Padre Pio, who could be physically in a monastery and then project his thought-form in several different places. The people of those places could see him or smelled the roses that indicated his presence.

2. Thought-forms that take the image of a material object

Such thought-forms can be applied to a phenomenon called “doppelgänger” (doubles). In these cases, the double and the tulpa exist as separate physical objects.

3. Thought-form that takes its own form expressing its inherent qualities

Such a thought-form takes its own form entirely, expressing its inherent qualities in the surrounding environment. In this case, positive or negative thinking is projected into the person’s aura.

For example, when a mother asks angels or saints to protect her child she creates an angelic thoughtform using her concentrated thoughts along with energetic material of the aura of her child. The created thought-form penetrates into the aura of the child and remains there to avoid negative influences.

4. Collective thought-forms (Egregores)

There are lots of different egregores that people use for different goals. One of the most popular forms is religion egregore. I have to admit that religion egregores are ones of the most powerful egregores on this planet. Therefore you can often see how a simple prayer can be manifested into miracles.

Beings Created by Thought

In Western magical traditions, there are rituals of protection, which the magician uses to enhance and protect his/her auric field. In the late 1880s, the famous Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn used a special ritual known as The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram to create a strong aura field to protect the magician from intrusive influences.

By creating guardian angels and using the exorcism ritual, mental and astral bodies use the energy properties of the aura and surrounding energies to create a protective field as a positive thought-form.

Why Create a Tulpa?

Some of you may wonder – why do people create tulpas? What’s the point? You see, the process of creating a tulpa is very personal and each person may have his/her own reasons for doing this.

For some people creating tulpas is a journey of self-discovery or/and self-development tool. Others create tulpas for scientific and psychological breakthroughs. Some people do it for not being lonely. Others want to push the boundaries of reality as we know it.

The Bond

I should say that the most prevalent reason for creating a tulpa is the bond. Tulpa Creators tend to have incredibly close and personal relationships with their tulpas. A bond with one’s tulpa is usually extremely strong which is not surprising since tulpas know their creators intimately, understand them, and generally like and trust them. That allows them to understand their creators like no other person.

Understanding

If you decide to open up to your tulpa it will have access to all your memories, your thoughts, reasons for doing things in the past that others wouldn’t understand. Some people are afraid of being disliked by their tulpas for what they can find in their memories or thoughts. Conversely, usually tulpas are very understanding of their creators and so they will understand why you did what you did in the past.

Control

Another amazing quality of a tulpa is its ability to act as a controller of sorts for psychological processes. For example, if you have anger issues it can help you control your negative emotions and temper, and calm you down when you need it.

How to Create a Tulpa?

Think About Your Own Personality

Before you start creating your Tulpa you have to take a moment to really think about your own personality. Think about the qualities you would like to manifest that can help you to become a better version of yourself and open your potential.

Create an Image of Your Tulpa

Decide what your tulpa will look like. Many people like to draw their tulpas or let someone draw them. Before you start drawing, you should write down the description of your tulpa. Here are some questions that would be useful to answer before you start drawing the tulpa:

  • is it a female or a male image?
  • what are the qualities of the tulpa (female: calm, attentive, affectionate, patient, male: strong, persistent, protective, faithful)?
  • is it a human, an animal, an alien?
  • what is your tulpa’s eyes color? skin color? hair color?
  • etc.

Try to be very specific with the qualities that are important for you.

Now that you have a basic description of your tulpa, you can start drawing it. Draw everything you can, walking style, different poses, and facial expressions. If you can’t or don’t want to draw, think about it and visualize it.

Meditate On Your Tulpa

Find a quiet place where no one bothers you. Sit down and relax. It is desirable that this is done in a comfortable chair, putting your feet on the floor and straightening your back.

Listen to your breathing and focus on it, slowly relaxing every part of your body.

Imagine yourself in a dream place or in a luminous space. While you are sitting in this magical world or space, visualize the outline of your tulpa image. It will be blurred first, but watch the process. At the same time concentrate on every detail of your tulpa’s image and make it real. This may take a long time, but be patient.

Once you can see your tulpa clearly in your mind, imagine how it walks, think about its overall walking style. Visualize how your tulpa is running, jumping, exercising and see how it reacts to certain actions. Keep in mind that this process can take up to a couple of hours each day. Continue until you get the result.

Communicate With Your Tulpa

Once you can clearly visualize your tulpa you can start communicating with it. You can talk to your tulpa mentally or aloud. The conversation will help your tulpa to develop, will teach it new words, emotions, and actions. Perform these actions until you hear that your tulpa can talk to you. It may seem strange at first, but it’s not crazy, it’s just that you’ve manifested your inner essence.

Accept the Change

I need to warn you about one interesting fact about tulpas. Usually, tulpas change something about themselves. Some people get scared of these changes or at the very least feel surprised. But I want to assure you that there is no reason to worry about it as long as both of you are content with it.

So why does a tulpa change? Well, the answer is pretty simple – a tulpa changes because it wants to! Always keep in mind that though you are a creator of your tulpa, it still has its own personality and independence. You have to respect that and accept the change.

The Bottom Line

It takes time for tulpas to develop convincing and complex personalities. As they grow older, your attention and their life experiences will shape them into entities with their own hopes, dreams, and beliefs. If you already decided that you want to make a tulpa, be sure to realize all the consequences and the responsibility that comes with it. Be consistent in spending time with your tulpa regularly. You have to remember that giving attention to your tulpa is very important since it leads to faster growth.

Look at this as a personal journey, and try to learn about yourself as you create your tulpa.

If you’re not sure whether you want to create a tulpa I would suggest not to do it and focus on guided meditations and visualization techniques instead.

14 Signs of Spiritual Maturity that Indicate Your Spiritual Growth

Published

what is spiritual maturity image

Spiritual maturity is not a religious concept. It has humanitarian objectives through balanced behaviors of spiritual understanding. Spiritual maturity is a gradual process of discovering your inner-self (or God Self) that goes along with self-discipline. It is important to understand that I am talking about a sufficiently “mobile” model of a Mature personality, allowing a different set of characterological features. However, in this article, I want to consider certain factors that can form the Central frame of such a personal model. And these factors I will describe through different signs of spiritual maturity.

Signs Of Spiritual Maturity

Authenticity

The famous American psychotherapist James Bugental calls authenticity the most important existential value of a human being. He identifies three main features of authentic existence:

  • full awareness of the present moment of life;
  • independent choice of the way of life at that moment;
  • taking personal responsibility for this choice.

The authenticity to some extent generalizes many properties of the individual. First of all, it is an expression of sincerity towards another. An authentic person wants to be himself in his immediate reactions and in his holistic behavior. He allows himself not to know all the answers to life’s questions.

He doesn’t act like he’s in love if he feels hostile at the moment. The difficulties of most people are that they spend a lot of vital energy on playing roles, or creating an external facade, instead of using it to solve their real problems.

If the person most of the time hides his true self behind the mask of any selected role, it is not surprising that in response he will receive the same insincere attitude of others. Authenticity is the most complete example of flexible behavior.

Openness to Own Experience and Acceptance of Feelings

Sad woman crying image

Here, by openness, I mean sincerity in the perception of one’s own feelings. Social experience teaches to deny, to reject the feelings, in particular, negative ones. The pressure of others forces to displace or suppress sadness, irritability, and anger. Society tells us: “don’t cry, don’t be nervous”, etc.

A spiritually mature person will not drive away any feelings, including negative ones. He accepts and experiences any feelings he has. Only, in this case, can you successfully control your behavior. It is because our displaced feelings are irrational, that is, they become a source of uncontrolled behavior.

When we realize our emotional reactions, we can choose our behavior in each situation, and not allow unconscious feelings to violate the regulation of our behavior. Therefore, we call ourselves “spiritually mature” only if we are capable of showing our tolerance for the whole range of ours and other emotional reactions.

Development of Self-Knowledge

Limited self-knowledge implies a restriction of freedom, and deep self-knowledge increases the possibility of choice in one’s life. The more a person knows about himself, the better he will understand other people, and Vice versa – the more a person understands others, the deeper he understands himself. Not being able to hear what’s going on inside us increases our exposure to stress and limits our effectiveness in life. It is very important to treat yourself realistically and consciously.

The Strength of Personality and Identity

Osho Quotes On Ego Photo

A mature person knows who he is, who he can become, what he wants from life, what is important for him in essence and what does not matter. He turns to life with questions, answers the questions posed to him by life, and constantly tests his values.

A spiritually mature person can’t be a reflection of the hopes of other people, he acts on his own internal position. This allows him to feel strong in interpersonal relationships.

Tolerance to Uncertainty (the Ability to Withstand Uncertainty)

Many people feel uncomfortable in situations where there is a lack of structure, clarity, and certainty. But spiritual development requires letting the comfort zone go and opening oneself up to a new experience. When we dive into our spiritual journey we have no guarantees or clarity of what to expect. A spiritual journey is very individual and even very experienced spiritual gurus can’t give us all the answers to what to expect.

A spiritually mature person understands this. He knows that life is an adventurous journey. That’s why we never know what the coming day is preparing for us, what kind of challenges we will face, and what decisions we will have to make. All we can have is strong confidence in our own intuition and the adequacy of feelings, confidence in constructive decisions, and the ability to take risks – all these qualities help us to endure the tension created by the uncertainty of the entire series of life situations.

Personal Responsibility

Mantras Cosmic codes image

Since most life situations arise under our control, we should be responsible for our actions in these situations. Understanding your responsibility allows you to freely and consciously make a choice at any time of communication – to agree with the arguments of the interlocutor or to enter into a productive confrontation.

Personal responsibility helps to take criticism more constructively. In such cases, criticism does not trigger the mechanisms of psychological protection but serves as useful feedback that improves the efficiency of activities and even life itself.

The Depth of Relationships With Others

When a spiritually mature person evaluates other people (their feelings, views, peculiar traits) he does it without condemnation and the use of labels.

Some people feel that expressing positive feelings obliges and thereby restricts freedom and makes them vulnerable. Others are afraid of rejection, so they feel that the safest position is the rejection of close relations. And they are satisfied with the communication with the partner in the distance.

But if you have enough spiritual maturity you don’t have such fears. You are able to freely express your feelings, both positive and negative, when communicating with other people.

Refusal of Perfectionism

Spiritual maturity involves a refusal of the desire to be perfect. Instead of blaming ourselves for our mistakes, we need to take them as our lessons. If we accept that we are not perfect, we will avoid unnecessary tension and feelings of guilt. In this case, relations with others become deeper and at the same time more real.

Empathy

Spiritual maturity implies the ability of a person to feel empathy. Empaths understand the feelings of the people they communicate with, as well as mandatory consideration of them in the process of communication. The range of empathy manifestation varies widely: from a light emotional response to a full immersion in the world of feelings of your interlocutor. Empaths realize that the feelings they experience are a reflection of the feelings of their interlocutors.

Kindness and Compassion

Kindness is based on the fundamental concept of self-recognition. We are required to treat all aspects of ourselves with compassion. Not just our positive aspects but also those ones that we previously denied. Spiritual maturity is a reflection of our deep gratitude, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness.

Only once we treat ourselves with kindness and compassion can we treat others the same way. Our attitude towards others is always a reflection of our attitude towards ourselves. That’s why I always say: “Love yourself first!”.

Patience

Spiritual maturity implies an understanding of the fact that the process of awakening goes through many periods and cycles. It requires our deepest commitment.

True patience does not aspire to any achievement. It allows us to open up for the timeless. When Einstein explained the nature of time by example, he said, “When you sit with a nice girl for two hours you think it’s only a minute, but when you sit on a hot stove for a minute you think it’s two hours. That’s relativity.”

Awakening is not a matter of weeks, years, or lives, but a matter of loving and patient disclosure to the mystery at this moment.

A Sense of the Sacred

Spiritually mature people treat every action they do as a sacred practice. Spiritual maturity means an understanding of the fact that if we need to bring light and compassion into the world, we have to start with our own lives. Our personal lives become more genuine spiritual practices than any series of experiences we have or any philosophy we share. This personal approach to practice means respect for the individual and the universal in our lives. Moreover, we also honor our individual body, our individual family, and our community, as well as our personal history of joy and sorrow. Spiritually mature people have a deep understanding that their personal spiritual awakening affects all other creatures.

Independent Discovery

Mindful meditation image

Instead of accepting some philosophy or blindly following some great teacher, going on an insurmountable path, we must recognize that we need to see for ourselves. In spiritual maturity, we find a great sense of autonomy – not as a reaction to authority, but as a basis for sincere recognition of the fact that we, like Buddha, are capable of spiritual awakening. Spiritual maturity has a deeply democratic quality. It means that all individuals have the opportunity to discover what is sacred and to free themselves.

This sense of exploration combines the openness of the mind with “discerning wisdom,” the ability to separate the useful from the harmful, which keeps the eyes open. With an open mind, we always learn.

Our sense of discovery gives us the opportunity to use the great wisdom traditions to learn from teachers and be part of the community. While at the same time in contact with ourselves, to see the truth and speak the truth with great respect to our own integrity and to our own awakening. This kind of research allows us to be more honest with ourselves.

Flexibility

Flexibility implies that spiritual life is not about accepting a particular philosophy or set of beliefs or teachings, nor is it about confronting or opposing anyone. It is the lightness of the heart that implies that all spiritual means are rafts to come to freedom.

The flexibility of the mindset contributes lightness and humor to spiritual practice. It allows us to see that there are thousands of ways to reach spiritual awakening. And if we choose one way and other people choose another way there is nothing wrong with this. We may follow different paths to reach the same destination.

Conclusion

With spiritual maturity, our ability to forgive and free ourselves grows and deepens. This shows the natural resolution of our conflicts and the ability to return to joy and peace. When we reach spiritual maturity we see spirituality as a question of who we are rather than of what ideal, philosophy, religion, or guru we follow. A spirituality of this kind is full of joy and integrity; it is both ordinary and awakened. Such spiritual maturity allows the light of the divine to shine through us.

spirit animal image

Are you looking for your spirit animal? Sometimes, you will deeply connect with a specific animal in the animal kingdom. Or sometimes, their character trait could be a profound representation of you. But in the spiritual world, spirit animals are more than just animals you share characteristics with.

Did you know your spirit animal’s power could help you navigate life more easily? The spirit animal concept traces its background in Indigenous Native American spiritual traditions and cultures. In these cultures, spirit animals represent totems and sacred guides embodied in the form of animals. It is believed that you don’t choose your spirit animal, rather they choose you.

Finding out what your spirit animal is can make your spiritual journey more straightforward and worthwhile. It also provides clear guidance and understanding of your true nature.

If you would like to know what your spirit animal is, this article is for you.

How to Find Your Spirit Animal?

There are many quizzes online trying to help people find their spirit animals. This is usually the most straightforward way. However, these quizzes still leave many people in doubt. Take one quiz today, and you will find your spirit animal is a bear. You take another tomorrow, and the result shows you are a snake.

Here are a few techniques you can use to find your spirit animal.

#1: Look at what your culture says

Different animals represent different things in different cultures. As much as the spirit animal concept originates from Native American cultures, you can still use your culture to find an animal that represents you.

For instance, a snake may represent rebirth in some cultures, thanks to the skin shedding they typically undergo. They are also sacred in some cultures and sometimes even worshiped. However, the exact opposite is true in other cultures.

Therefore, to find what animal represents you, you must look at what the animal signifies in your culture.

#2: Think about the animals you have connected with

Animal Empath Image

Was there an animal that you connected with as a child? What was your favorite pet? Which animal brought you more peace to be around? What animal excited you to watch on Nat Geo?

If you can think of an animal you connected with well in your past life, it could be your spirit animal trying to manifest itself to you.

#3: Take note of animals that appear in your dreams

Your dreams are connected to your real life. Every time you dream of something, there is an intimate connection between it and your waking life. Every time an animal appears in your dreams, take note of it. If a specific animal keeps appearing, it could be your spirit animal.

#4: Take a quiz

We often recommend taking a quiz if you cannot find an animal that resonates with you. There are a lot of online quizzes that could give you an answer. However, it is common for you to find different animals from different quizzes. Every time you find a different animal, note it down.

Start journaling about those animals and note what you can learn from them. After some days, look at the traits and the lessons you have noted. The animal that resonates the best with you is most likely your spirit animal.

Examples of Common Spirit Animals & What They Symbolize

Only then can we reveal our hidden potential.

Kundalini Awakening Symptoms Everyone Should Know

Published

on

Kundalini awakening symptoms image

From Sanskrit, the word “Kundalini” can be translated as “twisted” (like a snake or a steel spring), and traditionally the snake is its symbol. In ancient Indian manuscripts, Kundalini is described as a form of biological energy dormant in the human body. It is regarded as the basis of life, as the main form of energy that can be concentrated in the brain, and without which neither genius nor inspiration can exist. If you are engaged in any spiritual practices, then you need to understand clearly what Kundalini is and what Kundalini awakening symptoms you may experience.

What is Kundalini?

According to the ancient texts, the Kundalini energy is present in the whole body but is concentrated mainly in the lower part of the spine, that is, in the genital area, transmitting vital energy to the offspring. This “snake energy” can be woken up, and through the spine and chakras transferred to the brain.

kundalini spine image

Kundalini is extraordinarily powerful. A key to eternal youth and flourishing mental abilities is hidden in it. Indian Kundalini specialist Gopi Krishna said that Kundalini, being awakened, can be a source of mental strength, genius, artistic talent, and scientific achievements. That is, all that is characteristic of a high level of consciousness. According to Gopi Krishna, the process of awakening and ascent of Kundalini expands the range of hidden human abilities.

In ancient manuscripts of Tibet, Egypt, and Greece, as well as in other cultures, there is evidence of the Kundalini Energy existence. Even the first Christians knew about its existence. The headdress of the Pharaoh, and feathered snakes from Mexico and South America – all indicate the acquaintance of the ancient initiates with the energy of the Kundalini snake.

No one can predict who, when, and how this energy will awaken. However, one should know that only people with a pure mind, heart, and body can experience the awakening. For the Kundalini awakening, you should have as few psychological and emotional conflicts as possible. Moreover, your body should be as free as possible from the blocks and tensions. It is also good to have fewer attachments and idealizations defined by everyday concerns.

Kundalini’s awakening can occur in the form of an unexpected surge, like a dam break, sharp and, above all, uncontrollable and therefore – dangerous. For the time being, this energy is in a kind of preserved, dormant state. However, under certain conditions, it begins a spontaneous awakening and rises from the spine to the head. During this process, the energy transforms the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual systems of the person experiencing its rising.

What Is Kundalini Rising?

The process of Kundalini rising is an evolutionary process of transformation of the human personality. Your physical body, consciousness, and subconsciousness go through a big transformation. You’re changing your view and attitude toward life. Moreover, you’re developing unusual abilities.

Kundalini is vital energy. Its thin stream always flows through us, through our bodies as long as we are alive. Some people have more of it, and they are successful in their life. And others have less of it, and they are less successful.

Kundalini needs to circulate freely in our bodies. But most people clog their path with various mental blocks, attachments, and conflict events that burden them. By eliminating these blocks, we free the path for the free flow of energy transformation. And when Kundalini flow can overcome these mental blocks it starts a rapid process of rising. And only then, when it clears us in its movement from the bottom up – it’s hot energy begins a cold downward flow from the top down, the flow of divine cosmic energy. That’s when the extraordinary miracles begin.

Kundalini awakening can be considered the most important and greatest event in the life of every person. Only from this moment does your true rebirth, awakening, and spiritualization begin. Only from this moment, a person starts the real path of improvement. And the beginning of the Kundalini rising is the first real step into a completely different, fabulous world of high energies, unusual phenomena, and new opportunities.

How Does Kundalini Awakening Happen?

Many spiritual practitioners have come up with different stages, or other indicators to specify their apparent progress in the process of evolution. However, it must be admitted that until you have experienced the transformation of personality in the fire of Kundalini, all other manifestations of enlightenment are only temporary success and lie only in the plane of the mind.

Some people can awaken the Kundalini energy consciously, following the methods developed by various spiritual schools. Others unconsciously, intuitively build their lives and change their views and beliefs by the Universal laws. Commonly, people experience spontaneous Kundalini awakening, even if they’ve never heard anything about it.

From Vedic texts, it is known that the flow of Kundalini energy rises through the energy channel located along the spine vertically. Until the awakening, this channel is usually closed. The fire of Kundalini gradually clears and opens this energy channel. As the Central channel is opened (cleaned), the Kundalini energy activates the chakras located along the spine, which, in turn, also begin to produce energy intensively. So it gradually opens up the entire Central channel and chakras.

When the Kundalini reaches the last and highest 7th chakra in the crown, you become ready to perceive the subtle and higher energies from the Cosmos. Each chakra can receive cosmic energy and send its own to Cosmos. You become able to assimilate cosmic energies, which immediately turn on the process of transformation. In the course of it, you acquire that great power for which anything is possible. By using this power you can do amazing things, which, from the point of view of the laws of the physical world, are considered miracles.

As your Kundalini awakens, you begin to experience a number of strange phenomena. That’s why you need to know what Kundalini awakening symptoms are.

Kundalini Awakening Symptoms

  • Involuntary twitching, trembling, vibration, spasms.
  • Muscle contractions, especially in the anus, abdomen, and throat.

  • Vibration and energy coming out of your ears.
  • The increased activity followed by exhaustion.
  • Hair stands on end.
  • Protruding the abdomen, as if during pregnancy.
  • Spontaneous filling of the lungs with air.

Diseases Or Pseudo Diseases

  • Imaginary heart attacks are usually a false alarm; complaints that the heart is not beating.
  • A person’s sincere belief that he or she is dying, accompanied by vague pains and complaints.
  • The manifestation of other hidden diseases: wandering pain, hyperemia, digestive problems, and other complaints about the various organs of the body, disappearing without any treatment.

Visual Symptoms

The variety of visual Kundalini awakening symptoms is striking: it’s like lightning rays of light in your head, visions, or hallucinations (by the way, they can be quite frightening!). There were cases when there was a small sparkling point in the Third eye area. Tibetan monks call it ”the seed of light”, but it is not necessary that it arises in the area of the forehead. The sparkling point can arise between you and the object, or arise during meditation, and even when you are in a normal state, and it does not matter — your eyes are open or closed at this moment.

You may also become extremely sensitive to light or experience sudden vision – all colors seem very bright. Some people even start being able to see the aura.

Other visual Kundalini awakening symptoms are burning eyes and twitching in the area between the eyebrows.

Temperature Change

One of the most common Kundalini awakening symptoms is a temperature change. The sensation of it occurs in the following ways:

  • Waves of heat, sometimes with sweating.
  • The heat may flow from the body or feel like intense burning.
  • Night sweating.
  • Waves of icy cold, sometimes followed by waves of heat.
  • Feelings of heat or cold in different parts of the body, especially in the hands or at the base of the spine.

Emotional Symptoms

Emotional Kundalini awakening symptoms are:

  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Anger.
  • Guilt.
  • Temporary confusion of thoughts and difficulties with the performance of work tasks.
  • Insomnia.
  • Uncharacteristic of the person’s strong sexual desire.
  • Temporary problems with sexual identity.
  • Visions or hearing sounds.
  • Disorderly thoughts, indecision,
  • Bombast and arrogance.
  • Easy entry into a trance or semi-conscious state.

Increased Psychic Or Empathic Abilities

  • A vision or a sense of aura.
  • Seeing and understanding the signs from the Universe.
  • The ability to heal certain diseases with the energy of hands.
  • Involuntary recollection of past life experiences.
  • A better understanding of spiritual Scriptures.

  • Feeling the ability to influence another person’s thoughts.
  • Instinctive-intuitive knowing what needs to be done.
  • A sense of the presence of a luminous being or teacher from another dimension.
  • Psychokinetic phenomena (interference in electrical devices, moving objects, destruction of objects, etc.).
  • Out-of-body experiences.
  • Extended panoramic perception of everything.

Detachment

Another Kundalini awakening common symptom is a feeling like you’re outside of your own body. Sometimes this is manifested as a detachment from the daily routine or even detachment from everything material.

Food

We all know that the food we eat affects not just our physical bodies and health but also our energy. That is why when we’re experiencing Kundalini awakening symptoms we also notice that our eating habits change dramatically. The most interesting thing is that the changes in our eating habits are effortless. They happen naturally. It feels like your body itself tells you what you need to eat.

It is the Kundalini that opens the gates of further human evolution and gives us the power to understand and fulfill our life’s mission.
