Why can you get physically ill after a Kundalini Awakening? Or any shift for that matter?
I’ve seen a few of these articles doing the rounds lately, where the general gist is “I had a kundalini awakening and it made me sick or have some sort of mental breakdown - so kundalini and spiritual work is dangerous.”
The short answer is yes the work is dangerous - if you don’t know what you’re doing and you don’t do it properly.
Free Will & pushing too far, too fast
The first thing you have to know about the journey is that Earth is a plane of free will.
What free will means is that your choices get honored above all else in your world - so if you push your system to go somewhere that it’s not ready for, then you will be allowed to go there, but you will have to bear the consequences.
I’ve worked with advanced souls for a few years now, and regardless of how advanced the soul is - or isn’t - they all seem to think they’re the most advanced and ready for anything.
So we run off and read this snippet of info, and that snippet of info, all in sound bytes, easily digestible pieces - because we can’t be bothered with the meat and bones and real background. Then we dive in to stuff that is actually way past our grade, and then get a shock when there are systemic consequences.
Just because you have free will, doesn’t mean you should exercise it LOL.
If you don’t know what Ascension Flu is then you are not even vaguely ready to deal with the realities of shifting at this level.
In a nutshell, Ascension Flu means you will experience symptoms of illness, to varying degrees, after shifting something major. We call it flu because the symptoms are flu like - which means they range from body pain to nausea, runny tummies, dehydration, fevers, chills and so much more.
This happens because every single shift changes your DNA and all the old cellular material has to be moved away. The bigger the shift, the bigger the changes in your system. This is why we wait up to six weeks to see the changes of a shift playing out.
But in a nutshell, you can expect physical body changes after every shift - and it will be years before you get a handle on managing those symptoms.
In other words it’s absolutely COMMON to get sick after a shift or kundalini awakening. A kundalini awakening falls into the category of shift - you shifted to another energetic resonance.

Ego & Personalisation
The reason you didn’t know that this happens to all of us, is also the reason that you are not ready - you haven’t done the ego layers of work.
I went that way too - and it was DECADES of personalized hell, where I was depressed and suicidal and experiencing all sorts of horrible side effects from what I was throwing myself into. I was sick A LOT. Like multiple times a month A LOT.
You’re personalizing this is the long and short of it… “Oh look what happened to me; my story is so special.”
The truth is that it happens to all of us, but your lack of preparation and understanding threw you into the deep end of something that you don’t understand and were not ready to face.
The problem with this is the whole belief that everyone’s journey is different, driven by our desperate need to be recognized as special.
The journey is the same for everyone, except that we learn the lessons in a different order, and each of us has a certain combination of aspects that give us a “unique” area of focus. But that doesn’t really kick in until later.
You should not be dong any major spiritual work unless you have a teacher, coach, guide, or mentor to support you, a healer on back up call, and you’ve really started on your basics - especially that you’ve gotten a handle on a process like Mirrors so that you can navigate the inevitable stuff that will hit you with each new experience.

The last reason people get thrown into illness with a kundalini activation or a shift, is shifting overload.
In addition to the fact that your system will undergo a major cellular overhaul as a result of the shift, in most cases, there has been a build up towards that point. It usually looks something like you found a couple of cool tools and you used them ad nauseum, and then you found a few more, and you just keep overloading your system with tools and information.
In the beginning of any journeyer’s cycle there is always a lot of relief with shifts at first, because there is so much pain and trauma to shift, and until that point much of it hasn’t been dealt with. So one of the reasons you go into overload is because you get addicted to the “high” of the good feeling of an ascension surge shift.
But whether it’s an ascension surge (leaves you feeling immediately good), or an ego death (leaves you feeling immediately bad in the moment), it’s still a shift - we just distinguish them by HOW THEY MAKE US FEEL IN THE INSTANT WE SHIFT.
So we label our shifts according to whether they make us feel good or bad straight away - somehow thinking that one is better than another.

But how good is a shift in state really for you, if it say, makes you comfortable in your relationship and trust your partner again - only to find out down the line they’ve continued cheating on you?
Or how bad is a state really if it leads to a break up immediately, but ultimately opens up a path of true love for you?
But we keep going at first, fixing our immediate emotional state that we’re conscious of, because we feel like we are making progress. And because it feels good, it overpowers the other symptoms our bodies may be showing, and we keep pushing as hard as we can. Until our bodies fall over from the strain and we have to spend a few weeks recuperating.
In most cases of kundalini awakening causing major issues it’s gonna be something like shifting overload - the person just piled on too much, too fast, without knowing what they were doing or what danger they were potentially facing.
And don’t kid yourself - this is mental and nervous breakdown area… push too far with this, too quickly and your mind will snap. That’s way more difficult to come back from than Ascension Flu - no matter how bad that flu gets. As an example, I’ve landed in hospital more than a few times pushing my shifts too far. One was because I proxied myself in to shift the forgiveness load for my entire intimate circle.
For a start, you have to be doing daily basics, especially Butterfly Release, which takes care of one of the worst symptoms that plagues us with shifting - the SB junction getting stuck: http://lifecoachestoolbox.com/index.php/butterfly-release-videos-by-life-coaches-toolbox

If you want to go fast, it’s possible - but you can’t do it alone. And if you do try, you will almost certainly break yourself more than a few times. I speak from hard earned experience LOL.
Don’t try and go these things alone - learn from those around you. But find somebody worth learning from - someone who intimidates and scares you a little is always a good place to start.
By the time you get to kundalini activation, you need to have let go of ideas like this journey is comfortable, or the pain of personalization is going to be unbearable.
It is possible to do this journey without falling apart at the seams and without breakdowns, but you won’t get it right alone.
If you want to go fast, find help and surround yourself with the right people. People you can learn from - and not just people who blindly agree with you in order to pander to your ego.
If a teacher is pandering to your ego, chances are you run a real risk of breakdown, because they will be too scared to tell you when you are going too far.
The only reason that bad experiences like this happen to people is because they’re unprepared, they rush and they overestimate their abilities.
This journey is hard enough to navigate… don’t paralyze yourself before you even manage to to properly leave the starting pens.
