Is a Kundalini Awakening Permanent?

The question of whether a Kundalini awakening is permanent or temporary is a complex one, as experiences can vary significantly from person to person. For some, the awakening is a gradual process that unfolds over time, while for others, it can be a sudden and intense event.

The simple answer is yes, once your kundalini fully awakens it will continue to flow through you for the rest of your life in one manor or another.

In some cases you may only experience glimpses of awakenings, but not have a full kundalini awakening. A partial awakening may lead to intermittent spiritual experiences and insights without a complete and sustained transformation.

The 2 phases of a Kundalini awakening

The initial kundalini energy surge

When your kundalini awakens for the first time it may catch you off guard.

The symptoms that accompany a kundalini awakening include:

  • energy surges through the body
  • shaking, shivering, or tremoring
  • intense warmth
  • racing heart

As the energy makes it way either up or down your body, depending on where it begins, you may feel these symptoms.

Though you may have this happen on multiple different occasions, these surges are just a temporary part of the kundalini awakening. Eventually, as the kundalini energy is flowing freely through your body and chakras, these energy surges will subside.

The long term effects and changes

For those who undergo a full and profound Kundalini awakening, the effects can be long-lasting and permanent. These individuals often report a fundamental shift in their perception of reality and a deep sense of spiritual connection that persists beyond the initial awakening experience.

After the initial intense surges die down, you may experience permanent heightened awareness and intuition.

Drastic life decisions may also be a long term effect of a kundalini awakening. Some people find that kundalini awakenings cause them to make massive life changes that are more in alignment with their highest selves.

How to best manage your kundalini

Once your kundalini awakens it generally can’t be “stopped” in the way you might be hoping, however you can learn to manage and work with your kundalini energy.

The best way to manage your kundalini is to surrender to it at the beginning. As you surrender to it you will find any fear and resistance you initially had will fall away.

The next thing you should do when your kundalini awakens is practice grounding exercises. This is anything that can keep you grounded and relaxed. Some exercises include:

  • Meditation
  • Walks in nature
  • Mindfulness


Once a person’s kundalini awakens it will remain active in one way or another for the rest of their lives. Spiritual experiences are different for everyone, so it’s important to listen to your own intuition during this process. Remember to surrender, as this is all part of your spiritual journey. Relax and enjoy the ride!
