Ever since I started my Kundalini Awakening journey, I have read everywhere and especially in yogic texts, that a vegetarian or raw diet is ideal for having a Kundalini Awakening. Its even frequently stated that red meat is good for helping to ground and stabilize Kundalini when its too active.

For me the opposite has been true. I have cravings for red meat and it seems to help raise my Kundalini. I have noticed it for a long time now.

Last night, I had a Ribeye Steak. Thirty minutes after it, I felt strange. I could feel that my Kundaini was becoming active. I laid down and let the Kundalini work through me. My vision got blurry and my consciousness and perception changed. I felt like I had taken a valium. This lasted for hours. It was a pleasant way to be. My mind got very still.

I am saying all this because my experience has been unique. I highly doubt I am the only one experiencing this. Just know you are not alone. There are so many path ways to enlightenment. Not all are on the same beaten path.

With that being said. I do hate that animals have to be killed to feed me. If I ever had to kill a animal to eat, I highly doubt I could do it. I know I will be judged for saying this but I am who I am.

I try to get red meat that is free of antibiotics, hormones, and preservatives. I prefer that they be Vegetarian fed.

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. Hi there, I tried being vegetarian and also pescetarian for many years and once I started eating red meat again I felt much more healthy, my being seemed to glow from within just a short time after eating.

    I researched more and it seems humans have been eating red meat (mostly beef) for much of our evolution, including in Vedic times, so in general we are very accustomed to red meat as food. It seems barbaric to kill an animal and eat meat but if we look at the Earth everything is eating something else… when I look at cows and sheep in the fields I don’t feel guilty that it’s also food for me. Some people even believe that when you sacrifice and eat an animal then it helps the animals soul to evolve and ascend through reincarnation.

    Also, check out this story about Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj:

    “He was a vegetarian in a family which was eating meat. Once he went to his Guru to Bhagewadi in Biljapur District and in the course of the spiritual discussions his Guru Maharaj suddenly changed the subject and looking at him asked whether he ate mutton to which he replied in the negative.

    After hearing this his Guru said that he would make him eat mutton the next day and he felt very confused and shocked. He bowed down to him and requested him to excuse him because it was likely that he would vomit. But Guru Maharaj told him not to worry about it and said if any such thing happened he himself would clean the floor. Unable to go against the dictates of Guru Maharaj he ate mutton and he experienced Brahmananda the whole day. Obviously Maharaj knew about it and asked him with a smile as to how he felt. Speaking about this Nisargadatta used to say, “If one type of food can restrict your spiritual progress, it would mean some other type of food can accelerate it”.

    • Thank You so much for posting this. I myself have had inner conflict with eating any meat but as my Kundalini Awakening has progressed, I have found my body requires its nutrients more. I have not made any new posts recently because my Kundalini has finally passed my Third Eye Chakra and is now working on passing my Crown Chakra and its stimulating my Bindu Chakra. This has has required much more energy than my previous Chakra risings have. I will be posting more in detail about this soon. At one point I had become so weak after intense pumping of the Kundaini upwards for hours that I could barely stand. For me ingesting red meat and orange juice seemed to help me recover the quickest. I still have a full time job and responsibilities but its been a challenge to juggle everything.

  2. Raw diet is never prescribed in Yoga…

  3. Anyway my point is kundalini awakening is a mystery. Sometimes you just know what works and go with it but don’t know exactly why it works.

    • I have thought about the meat issue often. I hate that by buying meat, I am killing animals for my benefit. Its something I wrestle with often because I am a big animal and nature lover. But for me, it seems I need to meat to function properly while having my Kundalini Rising. If I go without meat for a couple days, I can feel it and I become weak. I am finding having meat and lots of different vegetables daily is ideal for me. I also take liquid vitamin D and B12 complex. Along Opi-Womens Multivitamin and I take extra calcium. I also take 3000mg of Krill Fish Oil daily. I am finding I am needing these nutrients to stay strong while I have an very active Kundalini.


      • Hi Morgan, if you feel you need it then there’s good reason to include it in your diet. In “Branded by the Spirit” by El Collie (one of the most useful pieces. It is a free pdf on the internet), she said she went vegetarian for years prior to her kundalini became active and after her kundalini rose there was a time she craved for poultry, but never red meat. I also know of other people who were strict vegetarians for years but when their kundalini awakens they crave for various types of animal protein. It was simply necessary. In El’s case she too changed from one diet to another dramatically based on what she needed for that particular period of time.

  4. This reminds me of what Gopi Krishna wrote in his book about kundalini. There was a period of time that he went through something which he doubted was a neurosis poisoning conditioning due to over-meditating and he was actually prepared to die. Then he had this dream in which a plate was shown to him with a small portion of meat in it. Then he asked his wife to add some meat to his diet every day after that dream and his condition miraculously got better ever since. I don’t remember him mentioning going back to being vegetarian again. Maybe it was only temporary.

  5. Sometimes you are guided to eat Meat with the kundalini, go with your guidance. I’ve been a vegetarian for years and then ate meat because I needed the protein and iron. I lost a lot of weight. It is preferred to be vegetarian because of animal cruely but go with your guidance.

    • Thanks, I am considering trying to be a vegetarian again. I just wish I knew what nutrient in meat I was lacking before because I got very ill. My protein levels were normal so I wonder if it was b 12?

    i think its whatever seems to work best. its the vibration from that the meat carries from animalwhen killed i think is the point, you maybe purifying italso consider that animals are souls too and there job may be to feed you, as weird as that soundsits in there blueprint like having this Rising is in Your blueprint sugar will have a grounding Effect blessings on your blissful journey Deva Singh

    • Thanks, It still makes me feel guilty. They have to suffer to feed me. I tried going Vegetarian for three months and I got very ill. My protein levels were OK but I think now that my B-12 was down. Either way, out of desperation, I ate a steak and three hours later I felt great. My body just seems to need meat.

        No offence to anyone..after turning vegan
        I never want to go back
        Never felt better or more spiritually connected

        Whether it is related to a change that was happening anyway or part of the change that lead me to veganism

        Either way ill find another way before i hurt someone else to expand my own consciousness ..its not worth it
