Kundalini awakening, opening the root chakra, and the associated risks

Opening the root chakra is often considered a fundamental step in spiritual growth, kundalini awakening, spiritual ascension, achieving a higher understanding, and beliefs cleaning. Many beginners in spirituality, even those advised by ‘gurus,’ may start practicing various procedures to open their root chakra. It is considered by some to be a cornerstone to enlightenment.

However, there are risks involved if one does not fully understand what they are getting into. I will describe these risks based on my own experience and observations of others in the spiritual community. I will use below a simple chakra numbering, from root chakra C1, to crown chakra C7.

The root chakra and its dangers

Over 20 years ago, when I began my spiritual journey, I read numerous famous spiritual books and attempted to apply their teachings. However, I found that many of the practices were impractical, inefficient, tedious, and time-consuming. Eventually, I discovered a practical spiritual school that helped me distinguish between effective and ineffective practices and provided me with the fundamentals to continue my own experimentation. Since then, I have continued to experiment directly with higher energies, meditations, and energy procedures. I have compared various procedures from different spiritual traditions and arrived at some practical conclusions that I would like to share with you.

Personally, I advise you not to try manipulating the root chakra as it can be dangerous if you’re not an experienced spiritual practitioner. It’s recommended to have several years of regular daily practice, typically 8-10 years or more, and confirmation from independent higher souls about your progress before attempting to do so.

Fortunately, the root chakra is the most closed of all chakras for the average 3D (3rd dimension of vibration, or chakra level) vibration embodied souls, it’s open just around 4-5%, so to open up to 100% is very difficult. Actually, it cannot be open for such low body vibrations as the usual 3D person is.


It’s true that there have been documented cases of spontaneous combustion, but they are extremely rare. This phenomenon is caused by an accidental kundalini surge shooting upwards the spine. However, it’s important to note that playing the ‘wizard’s apprentice’ and tampering with the root chakra greatly increases the likelihood of such a misfortune.

Strategy to open your root chakra (Muladhara)

I advise anyone, especially a beginner, to start working on the higher chakras (C2-C7) and see from there how it goes. The strategy you should follow concerning chakras opening is to open more, in a balanced way, the superior chakras one by one without insisting too much on one, but ultimately open all chakras C2 to C7 (sacral to crown chakras) to say 25-30%, and then return to work to open root chakra more from the basic average openness of 5% to 10%. Then leave the root chakra alone and again work on C2-C7 to open them even more to 40%, then again open root chakra from 10% to 20%, and so on …


The keyword here is Balance, i.e. keep a balance between how open chakras are compared to each other and hence chakra balancing. To achieve a true kundalini awakening that remains under your control and does not cause health problems that cannot be treated by mainstream medicine, it is important to follow the above guidelines.

Working your way up like this you will actually control your kundalini awakening and be able also to reap its benefits, or else you risk getting into crises of dizziness, head pressure, all sorts of acute body pains. All these kundalini symptoms also include the feeling of detachment from daily life considered by some as a “sure sign of ascension” or kundalini awakening, while actually being just a warning of unbalanced body energies, etc.


Also, consider that opening the chakras in a balanced way will necessarily push you into releasing your limiting beliefs which means working with yourself a lot; this is also called “healing” by releasing your limiting beliefs. Chakras are open very little because of the limiting beliefs we have in our subconscious, so we need to work on the Causes (limiting beliefs) to change the Effects (chakra opening percentage).

There are methods to forcefully open the chakras, but if the spiritual doesn’t work diligently on acknowledging and releasing his beliefs, the chakras will close back again, I’ve seen this so many times in many spirituals.

Root chakra opening symptoms

How do you know you got the root chakra really open like over 25-30%? Well, there are several positive signs like

  • often jolts of energy through the spine
  • body starts to feel different like not so rigid anymore kind of made of plasticine whatever your age is,
  • activation of “lower siddhis” (corresponds to chakras C1-C3) like starting to see in a wider range of frequencies through your eyes (seeing entities),
  • starting to feel the energy movements of Mother Earth (since you opened the link to Her now),
  • forecast major Earth events not known by normal people,
  • talk to animals and plants,
  • influence your body organs and make them work at your will, etc.

At least 4-5 of these must be activated currently to draw the conclusion that the root chakra got activated at least 40%. Consider that there are also negative kundalini awakening symptoms.

These are latent/dormant abilities (siddhis, spiritual gifts) that the ancient druids in ancient Britain for instance were working on life after life to activate, and hence master nature in service to the tribes they headed thousands of years in the past. They became very powerful when activating these abilities and spearheaded the resistance of their tribes against the Romans, and that’s why Julius Cesar gave orders to kill them when he invaded Britain in the 1st century BC.

From my spiritual research and looking into body energies, many enlightened souks like Buddha, Yogananda, Vivekananda, and other fully enlightened souls didn’t have their C1 open a lot, it was open between 30% and max 50% at the end of their lives, so why would one need to open them more? A possible goal of reaching very high openness levels of root chakra would be reaching the physical ascension of the body and turning it into light (5D+ vibration), but that poses additional challenges which belong to the subject of Rainbow Body of Light.
