The Kundalini Syndrome

Kundalini Syndrome

The Kundalini syndrome refers to the symptoms experienced by people as the raw, life force energy known as “kundalini” rises in the human body. Raising root chakra energy, known as Kundalini rising, is a spiritual awakening process. Meditation and Kundalini yoga poses are the main tools one uses to raise this raw, universal energy. However, it is possible for Kundalini energy, or Shakti, to rise without an individual’s knowing. Major and/or traumatic life events, near-death experiences, and other jolting happenings can bring forth the “serpent energy”.

The Kundalini syndrome and psycho-spiritual awakening

When Kundalini is awakened, especially for the unsuspecting individual, he may feel “out of sorts” or somehow disconnected from life. The development of unique abilities, or sixth sense as it’s sometimes called, can herald Kundalini awakening.

Additional signs of Kundalini shakti awakening can include:

  • increased sensitivity to light, sound, and energy
  • awakened interest or longing for spiritual growth
  • intense compassion for and/or longing to help others
  • a “sense” of spiritual changes ahead

However, if awakened Kundalini energy becomes off balance, a spiritual crisis known as Kundalini Syndrome can result.

Kundalini Syndrome

There is a prevailing general acceptance that Kundalini Syndrome is a condition that induces a range of physical, sensory, and psychological symptoms. Although these symptoms are generally recognized by spiritual, medical, and psychiatric communities across the globe, it does not mean they all agree upon the symptoms’ origin.

According to the online encyclopedic site, Wikipedia, Kundalini Syndrome is defined as:

“A set of sensory, motor, mental and affective experiences described in the literature of transpersonal psychology, near-death studies and other sources covering transpersonal, spiritual or medical topics.”

With Kundalini, fear of the unknown is justified. Kundalini is not a cure for all your ills. It does, however, offer you the ability to transcend the mundane both physically and spiritually. But you need to be responsible in both your exploration and pursuit of Kundalini.

Awakening Kundalini shakti can thrust you into a whirlwind of attempting to make sense of what you’re experiencing. Some people are unable to cope. As a result, they may seek refuge with substances, such as drugs or alcohol. The best thing you can do to head off fear is to educate yourself about Kundalini and what to do if you suspect you have Kundalini Syndrome.

Symptoms of Kundalini Syndrome

Typically, physical signs of this type of spiritual crisis are confined to joint pain, intense headaches, and nausea.

It is not uncommon to also experience symptoms that impact your sensory perception, such as:

  • inability to regulate body temperature
  • feeling “electricity” running up and down the spine
  • the sensation of the body vibrating

Generally, the effects of Kundalini syndrome overwhelm one’s emotional and psychological health. Awakened Kundalini energy itself can be difficult to handle even for the most grounded individual.

A range of syndrome-induced emotional and psychological symptoms may manifest in varying degrees of severity, including:

  • depersonalization
  • “breaking” with reality
  • mood swings
  • hallucinations

Healing solutions to the Kundalini Syndrome

Healing your body and spirit requires plenty of sleep, eating whole, real foods, and spending quality time outdoors to ground and restore balance to your chakra system. If symptoms intensify, seek assistance from a spiritual healer to help restore chakra balance. Avoid unnecessary exertion, including meditation and yoga, until symptoms subside.

    You have got to be kidding me.  The advice here for dealing with Kundalini Syndrome is like if you were clubbed in the head, and the doctor told you to take an aspirin.  Kundalini Syndrome is not a joke that can be wished away with these kinds of pathetic measures. 
    You need 2000mg of Tryptophan, and 500mcg of Vitamin B-12.  These are the two nutrients required to produce endogenous DMT, which will allow Kundalini to blow off steam and subside.  This is the only thing I’ve found so far that works.  DMT is synthesized from tryptophan.  The tryptophan is decarboxylated by an enzyme to make tryptamine.  Then the tryptamine is methylated by another enzyme which takes the methyl group from a molecule of SAM-e, making the tryptamine into NMT.  The same enzyme does this again to the NMT to make DMT.  The molecules which SAM-e is broken down into (from having their methyl groups taken) can be recycled back into SAM-e, but this process consumes a molecule of B-12.  The enzymes are not consumed by the reactions, hence, it takes one molecule of Tryptophan and two molecules of B-12 to make one molecule of DMT.
    Kundalini rises, and seeks to “pierce the bindu,” causing the pineal gland to release a flood of DMT.  That is what it seeks, but if the nutrients are not available (which they wouldn’t be, since this is not a “normal” thing that can be accounted for with a normal diet), then the Kundalini persists in a frustrated state.  Kundalini cannot be denied.
    Also, avoiding caffeine would be wise.

      Thank you! The most clever respont to this problem in two years of searching..  About the tryptophan.. is their a limitation on how long to use it to avoid Internal damages or sideeffects??
