“Tai Chi (or Tai Chi Chuan), which embodies the pagan philosophy of Taoism, is an exercise that involves the manipulation of chi. It is the choreographed movement, the discipline, the ritual, which gives shapes to the living breath of the chi. The exercise rouses the chi as a dragon rising from hibernation and then channels, as a river bank, the latent force of that energy into specific articulations of the body. Chi adheres to the base of the spine and it rises to the top of the head. Chi itself is defined non-mystically and its manipulation is not perceived as a religious or mystical practice but as a ‘natural’ communion with the essence of the universe. The aim is to tune in to chi. In Chinese metaphysics, the assumption is that mind and body in combination can be opened up to it, so that the energy itself takes over, as it were. Instead of having to go through the motions, the dancers find the motions going through them. This kind of ‘energy possession’ is also encountered in yoga and in occult meditation. Chi is equivalent to kundalini energy (also known as serpent power of all names – the serpent represents satan in the Bible). The exercises alone allegedly able to assist in the arousal of kundalini. This phenomenon is obviously demonic.”
The creator of Tai Chi is routinely credited to Chang San-Feng (ca. 1260-1368). He was purportedly a Taoist who wanted to discover to be immortal through occult means. He had a strong interest in I Ching and other occult activities were well known & eventually led him to develop Tai Chi.

Edit to update:
I recently prayed for a woman who got heavily demonized by practicing Tai Chi. She was a Christian at the time. She had suffered 5 years from demonic attacks. Just more confirmation on how spiritually dangerous it can be.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
