I find that many describe all levels of Kundalini activity as a Kundalini Awakening. Actually, a Kundalini Awakening is when your Kundalini has rose above your crown Chakra and then descended back down to your root Chakra to rest.
When Kundalini rises to any Chakra but has not completed its total journey, It is Kundalini Rising or Kundalini Arousal.
I wanted to clarify this because I did not want to confuse everyone. If I have, I truly apologize. I will be skimming over my 55 posts and try to correct my terms.
