First and foremost, I am not a Physician or Psychiatrist. I am not qualified to give medical advice. What I am going to say is just from my OWN personal experience. I have read several online sources that antidepressants can keep a person from having a Kundalini Awakening. Or that it can keep you from evolving spiritually. I have even read conspiracy theories that the government is behind the pharmaceutical companies and psychiatrists being so quick to prescribe antidepressants to people. That the government does not want people having Kundalini Awakenings. These sources are telling people to discontinue their antidepressants. I do not think its a good idea and could possibly be dangerous.

When My Kundalini first arose, I had been on antidepressants for a couple years. The antidepressants evidently did not impede my Kundalini rising to my sacral chakra. For whatever reason, it did take my Kundalini seven years to rise to my Solar Plexus. During those seven years, I had very few Kundalini symptoms. Ever since my Kundalini rose to my Solar Plexus Chakra, I have had Kundalini symptoms daily. I am still on antidepressants to this day.

I have been diagnosed with Major Depression which stems from Hypothyroidism. When my Thyroid Hormones go low, my most noticeable symptom is Depression. They have told me that I will need to be antidepressants for the rest of my life. I have wondered if I did not take antidepressants if my Kundalini would have awakened quicker? But with that being said, my Kundalini experience has been rather positive. Sometimes the energy is too intense so I really do not want my Kundalini Process accelerating. I feel very blessed that I can live a reasonably “normal” life. Whatever what you would consider “normal”!

I do not believe in being over medicated but if you are truly suffering a mental illness, you have no business stopping your medication without the guidance of a Physician or Psychiatrist. The withdrawl symptoms can sometimes be hellish if you are not weaned off correctly.

Also some depressed people need medication or they can become suicidal. It would be very dangerous for them to consider discontinuing antidepressants.

So this is my opinion on the issue.

Hello! I am Morgan Hayes. I live in the Southeastern United States with my two furry children. In 2004, I had a Kundalini Rising that transformed my life. I created this Blog to share my personal journey with my Kundalini Awakening and to possibly help others on this path. I have truly enjoyed getting to know my readers and learning about their own Kundalini experiences. In my free time, I try to keep a regular meditation and yoga practice. I also enjoy hiking and getting out in the nature. Spending time with my family and friends. Enjoying life!

  1. I’ve been on them 17 years and I think they possibly block the heart chakra; well for me me they do.

  2. I never understood or believed in taking antidepressants and all this medicine until i suffered for 2 years of horrible misery depression after my awakening. I just started them and I am forever grateful to see the world in a new positive light again. Without it I dont know if I would ever feel joy again. Thanks for the post, I am amazed there is hope through this medicine (small dose). Every one is different but mental illness is something to seek the truth about. Be well.

  3. I’ve tried antidepressants before and for some reason it makes you incredibly depressed coming off it. I think depression is natural and inevitable during times in your life. Embrace it and remember the feeling, it’s where compassion stems from. Anti depressants don’t mix too well with the awakening I’ve been told. Much much blessings to you anyhow.

  4. Completely agree. I understand people who think drug-free treatment is a good option but for some people it just isn’t an option. Like any other, depression is a genuine, chemical illness and should be treated as such. Otherwise, like you said, there are dangers, and a lot at stake for people who might end up suicidal.
