Kundalini Awakening Symptoms


I'm a 17 year old girl and I think I am experiencing symptoms of a kundalini awakening. I have had these symptoms for almost a year now. They are the basic symptoms but just to be specific... These include muscle twitches & spasms (several times a day, impossible to count), what feels like growing pains, occasional numbness of arm or leg, vibrating & crawling sensations especially on face at night, energy rushes throughout the body which I find completely exhilarating. I also get headaches, feel fatigued a lot, hearing strange but blissful sounds, random laughing/singing/dancing (when I'm alone ha ha). I have also come close to having OBE's about 4 or 5 times, each getting more intense.

I feel so blessed to be experiencing something so beautiful so early in life although it does make me feel vastly different from my pessimistic and immature friends. However, I recently have completely accepted who I now am and everything that comes with it. I feel empowered but not conceited, to be where I am in life. However I question as to where I go from here... I know I have already suffered from what they call the "dark night of the soul" and I feel I may be in the awakening state but perhaps not if that comes before. Although I think I am in that state because I feel like I am waiting for something to happen, I am not sure. I do not want to force my kundalini awakening because I have read of people going crazy because they are not ready for it. However I don't know how much longer I can wait. I have felt stuck in the same place for almost a year now.

Any advice as to what I can do as of right now to further my growth? Is there anything else I should know about Kundalini? I am beyond ready for whatever is coming next. On one hand I feel like life is so much richer and vibrant because I can appreciate so much. However, on the other hand it feels like something is missing. Maybe it is because I want to fall in love desperately but I have always been picky because I have always been extremely mature for my age. I have always wanted to be with someone who I can actually "connect" with and it is hard to find someone my age like that.

But anyway enough with my rambling. On a last note any advice on furthering or really anything concerning kundalini and where I'm at? Also, what can I do about feeling stuck and wanting love?

Thank you for such a wonderful post! As I read it, my excitement grew and grew. I'm also 17 years old and am doing yoga and meditation to aid me in my spiritual growth. I was also pretty desperate to find my true love, and I've learned to let them come to me as I improve upon loving myself. I'm also interested in awakening my Kundalini, but have learned through research to let it come on its own and not to rush the process. So, I understand your hesitation. If you feel stuck, my advice is that you should go for it and meditate/pray to the Universe, God, etc. To find the answer on how to progress. Libra1 is absolutely correct, "Everything works out in time. Trust it." Best wishes and regards 😊 ❤

Wow Hopeful I can't believe you are even younger than me! Thats really cool. I've done at home "kundalini meditation" like on youtube but its not really that helpful, still waiting to go to an actual class. But I will definetely give reiki a try I've heard a little bit about it before. Yes, my muscle twitches are INTENSE. I literally get them almost every other minute every day. Once in awhile I wonder if I actually have something serious because they are just so frequent and intense.
As for love, I came to a realization. I read a quote somewhere that said something like "as soon as you stop wanting something you get it." I've always been so confused because I strongly believe in the law of attraction and all that so I've always been constantly thinking of my perfect guy trying to "attract" him. However, I realized that since the opportunity hasnt presented itself, then I clearly wasn't ready for whatever reason. So when I meditated about two months ago I talked or prayed (whatever you want to call it) to my higher self or spirit guides saying that I have never been more ready to fall in love etc etc. When trying to manifest something youre supposed to "place your order" and then proceed to act when the opportunity is presented. Apparently youre not supposed to keep on asking if you haven't received what you asked for yet. If you have faith it will happen, when you are ready. So I have literally just been enjoying life right now, not even thinking about possible love interests. Because when there is an opportunity, I know I won't miss it. And I definitely think more people like you will come into your life before you know it! I know its happened to me:) Good luck!

I think I love you! -Friendly wise, cause I'm a girl. Lol- But,
"I feel so blessed to be experiencing something so beautiful so early in life although it does make me feel vastly different from my pessimistic and immature friends. However, I recently have completely accepted who I now am and everything that comes with it. I feel empowered but not conceited, to be where I am in life."
I feel exactly the same way! I'm 15 though, your Kundalini awakening sypmtoms seem to be considerabley more intense than mine -Mine are muscle twitches during meditation, and my feet and legs feel like they're vibrating constantly, along with the more awake feeling, and etc.- But, I read this while researching more about Kundalini, and I flipped out, because I'm just completely thrilled to know there's someone else out there going through the same thing! I hope you feel the same way! Lol. I told one of my very best friends about reiki and asked her to listen to a healing meditation song... She laughed. But also about falling in love? Same here, but everyone is just soooo immature, it actually made me really dislike HS but I'm focusing more on the spiritual path and it just, feels right/better. You know? Sorry this is like the longest message ever! Man I wish we lived in the same town, it'd be nice to have a friend who was interested in the same things, as dedicated to the spiritual path as I am. It's hard sometimes, but it pays off:) You know that! Lol, I don't know how well advice will be, but with the desperately wanting love? Just... Know that you can't put restrictions on love, love is love you can't categorize it, or you'll drive youself crazy. -Although I had almost given up on meeting someone with similar beliefs to me, but you have given me hope!- And, do you practice kundalini yoga and meditiation techniques regularly? That could help -though I bet you do because you've done your research- And do you now about reiki? It's a japanese healing method which taps into the energy of the universe and requires meditation and technique. You can research it, I've found a couple sites where kundalini&Reiki are together because they're both processes that come hand in hand when on the spiritual path.
Idkk if that helped at all I REALLY hope you get this!
(: Thanks for sharing, maybe there ARE more of us ot there than I think...:) I hope so.:D

Hey froosh I m floating in a same boat as you, may be a bigger boat... My expericences started when I became conscious around at 3 or 4yrs of age.

Even now you if you become silence you can see me sitting in my room hearing what I m hearing, you can even observe my thoughts but only if you become silence.

I m having some trouble with opening of my inner chakra due frontal sinus mucus & conjustion in my throat chakra (vissudha) ll delay me from reaching the ecstasy of life... M doin xercises, medication & meditation for it...

And yes your rite some people are foolish they can't see your inner being & make fun of these toks.

M ready to be your friend as its hard to find alike friends
FYI-- I live in INDIA (d birth of spritualism) you can contact me on my email id gauravtanwar [at]

You can also add me on facebook gaurav tanwar panchkula if you want. 😁

Marlecaste said it perfectly!
Froosh188 you are very young. It's hard for you to understand the advice from someone who has gone through a few or many relationships~most are controlling.
Marlecaste said it perfectly. Write down what she said on piece of paper, when you are feeling down because you feel you need a "love" in your life, read it.
You are very blessed, you need someone who will appreciate you and your awakening! ❤ ❤ ❤

I identify with you on this, I experienced a full blown Kundalini rising. It was prompted by extreme Pranayama breathing Yoga and meditation. Yes, one must have a strong grounding in the 3 lower chakras.

I currently help others toward experiencing this same awakening. We must allow the crown to open in it's own time as not to force the petal open bruising them. We have been bruised enough, in many past lives.

Ones life changes tremendously once these changes occur. So be prepared, many more are awakening so you are never alone. And as for love... You are surrounded and immersed in love always, but to feel true love for another we must full love ourselves. Be authentic to ourselves. Only then will love make any sense. For unenlightened love seeks to control, and lacks understanding. I know as my husband has asked me to leave... He knows nothing of who I truly am. I have given up defending myself. I have sought freedom and now it is truly mine... Now the journey continues unabated.

Peace and love to you.

Be careful of youthful idealism! You can have profound experiences and still get distracted by world later on. I would start reading books by Dr. David Hawkins. Start with Power vs. Force.

Would just like to say I definitely relate to your story. I'm 21 now and spent a good half of my teen years in the so called "dark night of the soul". And as of late I have been finding myself doing research of kundalini awakenings and symptoms and what not. I have majority of the symptoms you have especially the muscle twitches/spasms, the crawling sensation all over body, I get these chills (more like lightning zaps) down the back of my neck, which I oddly enjoy.
I would also say I feel the same way concerning feeling "stuck" and have been trying different things, hoping I could speed it up, but not sure how successful I have been. I been trying to do a lot of different research and reading different literature involving all this stuff which has been very interesting, maybe someone else also has some advice. Glad to know I am not the only one 😉

Don't ever let anyone tell you that God doesn't exist. Search for him, he is there within you. Next time you meditate, envision yourself climbing a ladder into a pure white light. I'm not telling you what to expect for you will find out soon enough. Seek the truth for yourself, don't listen to anyone else's truths. You will definitely not find the truth on google. The answer is within.

Thank you for the advice Libra1. I have done so much research always hoping to find something new but it's usually the same content. It's just very frustrating feeling stuck but I will definetely ask for guidance the next time I meditate!

What a great experience! You seem so eager and excited to move forward. The only advice I can give on Kundalini is to do as much research as you can. Try meditating and ask for guidence.
As far as you finding love ~ Don't look for it, it will find you! Concentrate on being joyful! We all go through many relationships that are enriching to us in many ways. The love of your life will enter when the time is right for you. Be patient. This is advice coming from someone who found the love of her life at 25! And, it only took 14 1/2 years to get married! But we did, and we have been married for 11 years, together for almost 25 😊 Everything works out in time. Trust it. ❤
