Mystical Energies (Chi, Ki, Kundalini) Exposed


“This “energy” is unidentified by modern science but nonetheless real. This energy are really demonic spirits masquerading. The energy is often intelligent, personal, transferable, and strongly associated with occult practices. This energy is often transferred into a person during new-age healing practices. But when the energy is transferred the process may be indistinguishable from a person who claims he is being filled with occult energy manipulated by his spirit guide or being filled (possessed) by the spirit itself. There is little difference between the mystical energy used in martial arts and New Age medicine and the psychic energy used by occultists, whether shaman, medium, or psychic healer. This energy provides the theoretical & practical foundations for unbiblical doctrines and pantheistic doctrines. Most New Age therapists & occultists link the alleged energy in the body to cosmic, universal, or divine energy. This energy is called chi, prana, kundalini, mana, divine energy, orgone, ki, life energy, vital force, psychic energy, elemental energy, and paraelectricity. The developer of modern hypnotism, Anton Mesmer, called it animal magnetism. This energy is invariably associated with pagan religion & occult practitioners. Interestingly, the word for ki in different cultures usually carries implications of both “breath” and “spirit” and the ki developed may be stored in the lower abdomen and pelvis which is where oftentimes people feel demons leave when they are expelled by the authority of Jesus Christ. There are only two sources of supernatural power in the world: One is from God (Jesus Christ), and the other is from Satan’s kingdom. This energy obviously comes from the latter as it doesn’t glorify Jesus Christ.”

From Marcia Montenegro:

The concept of energy and vibrations is at the heart of New Age and occult beliefs, especially New Age and occult healing.* Directing, manipulating, balancing, summoning or channeling an energy (or spirits or force) is found in numerous practices usually termed as “alternative” healing. This also applies to machines or gadgets that allegedly read your energy or diagnose based on “energy” (under any name). Numerous websites and organizations offer to diagnose and/or heal by reading one’s energy, frequencies, or what is termed the energy field. Many of these practices have even entered the medical world and are covered by insurance companies.

Energy in these contexts refers to an unquantifiable unknown energy that is connected to spiritual beliefs about God and/or creation. It is not about vibrations, energy, or frequencies that have a physical and scientific basis, like electricity or radio waves.

I have defined three broad categories of practices that use the energy concept, from the more overt to the more subtle. I am not attempting to cover all practices, but only the most common or well-known, and I am focusing on the more subtle practices, especially for healing. Some listed here fit more than one category due to cross-over beliefs and according to how they are promoted by practitioners. These are rather fluid categories that frequently overlap, and are not meant to be rigid.

I experienced this kind of energy (before I became a Christian), including what is called chi, Kundalini, Prana, the life force, New Age healing, Vital Force, and psychic healing. These all are names for the same thing: occult energy. I had intimate real experiences with all of these via workshops, meditation, psychic healings, and Yoga.

The Three Categories
The first category includes blatant forms of energy manipulation in occult magic, spells to summon spirits, channeling of disembodied entities, automatic writing, Shamanistic healing (which involves spirit contact), as well as energy healing such as polarity and aura balancing, Reiki, and Healing Touch. The belief that spiritual advancement will raise one’s vibrations or frequencies (a theme in James Redfield’s bestseller, The Celestine Prophecy) is in this category as well.

A second category would be energy work that inaccurately intermingles science with spiritual views (seen especially in the misuse of quantum physics), falsely claims a scientific foundation, or seems to have a physical basis but actually is spiritually based. This includes acupuncture, crystal healing, Shiatsu, Yoga, Reflexology, EFT (Emotional Field Therapy, Thought Field Therapy), Tapping, Therapeutic Touch, Aikido, Qigong, and Tai Chi. Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Reflexology, EFT, Tapping, Aikido, Qigong, and Tai Chi are all forms of chi therapies and are based on spiritual beliefs in the invisible (and undocumented) energy called chi, also spelled qi or ki. However, promotions of Acupuncture, Reflexology, EFT, and Tapping are laced with scientific terms and claims although there is no scientific support for them. Tapping is done by tapping on specific points of
the body while repeating certain statements. Keep in mind that the terms “energy” or “chi” are not always used or acknowledged by practitioners or advocates of these treatments or practices.

A third area advocates practices that allegedly align, initiate, activate, trigger, or stimulate unquantifiable energies, energy fields, or vibrations. However, the terms and concepts are masked in benign, and often, pseudo-scientific, language. This includes more subtle methods such as Yoga, Bach Flower Essences, Aromatherapy as spiritual healing, aspects of some purported claims to healing using Essential Oils, and Homeopathy.

Many of the practices named above stem from a belief in the subtle body; that is, energy fields surrounding the body which are directly related to healing. These energy fields are not visible or detectable but form a large part of the body of New Age and occult teachings. References to meridians (allegedly invisible channels in the body through which chi flows) and the Hindu chakras (wheels of energy) are part of these beliefs.

An additional though distinct area would be spiritual practices attempting to sound scientific by redefining occult energy as physical or biblical. Teachings in this area are that faith is a force, that vibrations in words or thought can alter reality, and that one can exercise power to draw certain conditions to one’s life via thoughts and words. These methods are occult in nature and are taught in esoteric belief systems.

The spiritual philosophies underlying these methods are explained in the following sections. The information presented should not be taken as an endorsement of these ideas, but rather an unmasking of their true nature.

The basis for many of these is Vitalism, explained here from a pro-Vitalism source:

Quote==The vital force exists in all living things as an innate non-material, intelligent presence that directs and informs the- organism on all levels. Similar to chi in Chinese Medicine or prana in Ayurveda, the vital force serves as a defense against disease and is frequently suggestive of a channel that is connecting us with the divine. Vitalism recognizes the relationship of the healthy spirit to the healthy body and Vitalist practitioners strive to treat on all levels: mind, body, and spirit.==”What Is Vitalism?” by Jon Carlson, Vitalist School of Herbology,

It is important to understand Vitalism and the concept of a life force or life energy since it is the root of many these beliefs, especially those that claim to heal. Vitalism attributes a divine power to creation instead of to the Creator God, or it views God’s power as accessible in creation, or God is seen as the energy or force itself. In all cases, the life force itself replaces God, is identified as God or as the healing power of Christ, or is equated with the Holy Spirit. This force is unquantifiable, invisible, and non-measurable.

The principles of Vitalism match the pagan views of chi, Prana, Kundalini, Mana (energy in pagan Pacific Island cultures), and the forces used in occult healing. It is likely that Vitalism stemmed from Eastern and occult views of energy, as seen in the following excerpt.

Quote==While many Vitalist scholars credit the Greek physician, Hippocrates, as the founder of Vitalist philosophy, the fundamental principles of Vitalism were intrinsic to all traditional cultures. The shamanistic traditions demonstrated this through the thoughtful integration of diet, herbs, music/chanting, ritual, laying on of hands, etc. was simply a way of life that preceded recorded history.== Carlson, “What Is Vitalism?”

Vitalism played a big role in the New Thought Movement (a movement denying the essentials of Christianity but which claimed to be Christian) and in the rise of many “natural” healing concepts proliferating today. Phineas Quimby and Anton Mesmer believed they had accessed the “Christ power” in healing. This became a staple of New Thought healing and eventually the New Age. Here is one example of such healing found randomly online:

Quote==The loving energy of Christ is always present in my healings. I was introduced to the Christ Force Healing technique in 1997.==Website of Jeffrey Allen,

This healer, Jeffrey Allen, describes the various disembodied guides who aid him in healing. His account is not unique but is actually typical. Spirit guides (fallen angels) are always a part of energy healing and are even referred to by Reiki and Healing Touch practitioners as well as other energy healers and workers.

The Vital Force and Illness
The “Vital force” or “life force” is a foundation for the original principles of Homeopathy, Chiropractic, Naturopathy, Bach Flower Remedies or Flower Essences, and many other alternative healing modalities. Vitalism was a popular notion in the 1800s and early 1900s and undergirded many alleged purported healing techniques now classified as alternative. The healing principle is based on the unseen and unknown “vital force,” the same concept in all occult and pagan healing:

Quote==In the Vitalist paradigm, all disease is seen to originate as a pattern of disharmony in the vital force. Over time, unchecked distorted patterns begin to manifest on the material level, giving rise to physical disease. In practice, physical manifestations may be treated and symptoms relieved but underlying energetic patterns must also be addressed to create true, lasting healing.== Carlson, “What Is Vitalism?”

A specific example which reflects Vitalism can be found in the original teachings of Chiropractic, founded by D. D. Palmer, who had studied Mesmerism (hypnosis and New Thought healing):
Quote==There exists a Universal Intelligence which brings organization to all matter, and maintains its existence;
*All living things have inborn, or Innate Intelligence which adapts universal forces and matter for use in the body;
*Every living thing has ALL the Innate Intelligence it requires to maintain its life and optimal health;
*Health is the expression of the Innate Intelligence through Innate Matter, via Innate Energy;
*When there is interference with the transmission of Innate Energy, the result is a decrease in the expression of Innate Intelligence, which chiropractors call dis-ease (not to be confused with disease!).==”The Original Beliefs of Chiropractic,

Specific Examples of Energy Work/Healing
Hatha Yoga
The use of breath is important in Yoga because directing the breath is equal to dealing with Prana, believed to be the divine breath of the universe. This is why what is called breathwork (Pranayama) is given such an emphasis in Yoga. What is called breathwork is designed to initiate the rise of the energy coiled at the base of the spine, Kundalini. The occult nature of Yoga is quite clear, and so it is not surprising that Hatha Yoga was only taught in India by gurus to those who sought them, and that occultists were the first ones to use Yoga in the West.

Acupuncture is based on belief in a universal force, chi, which supposedly permeates the world and courses through the body in invisible channels called meridians. Illness results when the chi is blocked, thus causing imbalance in the yin and yang energies. Needles are used at various points, not connected to the location of pain or illness, to supposedly unblock the alleged chi. However, there is no concrete evidence for the existence of meridians or chi, and no accepted scientific explanation has been found to support acupuncture as of this writing.

Homeopathy products are the result of at least two completely illogical concepts, founded by Vitalism devotee, Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). The first one is that a product is diluted over and over almost to the point that nothing of the original substance is left in the belief that this will make it more effective; this is called potentization.

Secondly, there is the belief that the water or liquid used for dilution will retain the “memory” of or be “imprinted” by the energy of the product when the product is vigorously shaken in the liquid. The energy of the product is supposedly impressed on the liquid through repeated shaking (called succussions).

Essential Oils/Aromatherapy
………….. Bach Flower Remedies, which is based on Vitalism. About its founder, Edward Bach (1846-1936), we read:

Quote==Though both the nature of flower essences and his philosophical approach to healing clearly place Bach in the Vitalist tradition, he did not often use the term “vital force” in his writing. Instead, he espoused the importance of treating “the personality of the inner man” and spoke of “the spirit of man.” The application of flower essences became a way to suffuse this spirit of man with “beautiful vibrations of our higher nature”; thus dispelling the disease pattern.==(Carlson)

Vibrations in the essence of plants are believed to align with vibrations in the “spirit” of a person and activate healing powers, and/or balance the person”s “life force.” There is no scientific or physical basis for this; it is purely Vitalistic spirituality. Other claims use pseudo-scientific language.

Quote==There does not appear to be a rational scientific basis for this therapy. It is described as working by releasing neuro-chemicals, balancing hormones, stimulating the immune system, reducing toxins or influencing psycho-neuro-immunology; little explanation or scientific evidence is offered. Others claim that benefits depend upon balancing the bodies’ vital energy, cosmic energy or life force. Gattefosse stated: ‘Essential oils can be used to balance the energy flows of the body in a similar way to acupuncture.’==(“Aromatherapy,” Christian Medical Fellowship in the UK,

While there are legitimate uses for some Essential Oils in cleaning and for fragrance, and for some minor treatments such as the anti-fungal properties of Tea Tree Oil, the Essential Oils market is infused with New Age views and terminology. Products are illegitimately promoted not just for healing serious diseases but as treatment for serious anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, low self-esteem, and other personal situations. Disturbingly, there is also an attempt to disguise the New Age ideas with Christian language and/or biblical references in order to give these beliefs a Christian legitimacy.

An example of the pervasive influence of Vitalism masquerading as Christianity is in the popular book, Healing Oils of the Bible, by David Stewart. I was told by many Christians this was a Christian book, and many refer to it to substantiate invalid views about oils and the Bible. However, I read the book and found it to promote views totally contrary to Scripture, as well as false and unsubstantiated claims. Indeed, many of the statements in this book are strong echoes of Bach’s Vitalist beliefs. This startling statement is found in the first page of the Introduction:

Quote==These oils are the vital fluids of the plants that are their life blood…..Essential oils contain life force, intelligence, and vibrational energy that imbues them with healing power that works for people.==(See CANA article on this book on the Sola Sisters blog at

Why Are There Results?
Why do some of these methods seem to work? This can be due to: the placebo effect, which has accounted for 33% or more of good results in testing with controls; to the desire to believe in the remedy; to the self-limiting nature of the illness or pain; and/or to the patient’s use of conventional treatments prior to, during, or after the alternative practices.

Many of the conditions treated with alternative therapies are hard to diagnose, difficult to treat, and are only detected subjectively by the patient/client. In some cases, the illness may be diagnosed (likely inaccurately) by the alternative healer and then allegedly “cured.”

Bible Views
What about Bible passages about God’s breath and how the Lord sustains the universe?

Most references to God’s breath are pointing to God as the creator of man and of all life. This does not mean that in having breath we literally possess anything organic from God because God is distinct from His creation. In fact, being Spirit, God does not literally possess breath; it is poetic imagery. Teachings that God’s breath is the vital force or life force are Pantheism, or Panentheism. Pantheism is the view that God is creation and creation is God. Panentheism states that God is in creation and creation is in God, though God also transcends creation. However, in truth, no part of God’s nature intermingles with or penetrates creation. God is omnipresent but is entirely distinct from His creation.

“It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands And I ordained all their host.” Isaiah 45:12

“Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest?” Isaiah 66:1; also see 1 Kings 8:27; 2 Chronicles 2:6; Psalms 139:7-10; Jer. 23: 23-24; Acts 17:24

Many point to Colossians 1:17 as evidence for a force in nature to be God or part of God (or Christ):
“He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”

Again, no part of God can reside in nature; otherwise, that would be a Pantheistic or Panentheistic god, and therefore, a false god. Nor is anything in the created world sacred or divine. The notion of nature as sacred makes sense in the New Age worldview but not in the biblical one.

Colossians is relaying that God sustains all by His power. But this power is not organic or part of nature, nor is it something we can channel, manipulate, balance, manage, summon, or access for healing. Attempts to do this are contrary to who God is and to Scripture. Manipulating or channeling energy is occult healing and more akin to sorcery.

The practices using energy explained in this article are occult in nature. They are not valid scientifically, medically, logically, or biblically.

*Note on the occult and occult healing: The occult is a set of practices involving reading hidden meanings in ordinary images or in natural sources, the attempt to receive information or aid from disembodied beings, and/or manipulation of unquantifiable forces or powers. The three broad categories are divination, spirit contact, and sorcery. Healing is one of the most common occult activities but these methods are counterfeit to true healing. New Age healing is, in actuality, based on occult healing principles.


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.”

  1. Satan likes to make his activities attractive to people, whom they then believe are either beneficial or harmless. Unlearned people don’t comprehend that Satan is the biggest bait and switch con artist in all of history. Therefore….test all things by the Word of God and prayer.

      This writer also does not acknowledge that other religions believe in demons, not just Christianity.
      This writer is probably quasi baptist but thinks they are “non-denominational” and also probably doesn’t believe the eucharist has spiritual power. They probably have no concrete understanding of Christian history, and do not know much about the Catholic or Orthodox.


      1. You used the word “probably” three times, leaning to your own understanding, and assuming things you do not know. That said, you are not only “probably” wrong on all scores, but dead wrong altogether. Seek the Truth, only to be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    I couldn’t even believe what I was seeing Jesus said judge not lest you be judged how do you pass such judgements? Praying you open your heart and mind ….


    1. Read scriptures in context. Jesus said, “Judge with righteous judgment”. If you are spiritually bankrupt and without discernment enough to judge righteously, you are a perfect target for Satan to deceive you.

    I guess it is he ( or she ) that has BAD occult experiences that God considered worth bothering with!!! Those who have been truly “blessed” by the occult,.. well,.. that’s definitely not good. Often, God will try and try and TRY to steer you in the right direction. But eventually, the Lord throws his hands up and walks away from you, thus abandoning you altogether!!! Especially if you really ARE not worth bothering with!!! Some people really and truly ARE “riff-raff!!!”


  4. After I became born again Christian, I am under ongoing deliverance ministry. The long story short, without my knowledge, my ancestors had a long and deep involvement with occultism. They practiced many things from martial art, magic, spells, divination, fortune telling, medium (calling spirits of dead people).

    I have been delivered from evil spirits that were actually had the same names like martial arts my ancestors practiced. Some of them were high level martial arts that you could only hear on fictional stories. I didn’t know they practiced those since they were alive hundred years before me. But, Holy Spirit knew them all. For instance, one of my ancestor practice martial art that made him immune to any weapon attacks. The evil spirit had the same name with the martial art and was passed down on me. I didn’t practice the martial art at all.

    My conclusion is like the article. Those internal energies whatever the names: chi, prana, tenaga dalam, chakra, etc are actually evil spirits that are transferred to people’s bodies. There are no such thing as internal energy. Supernatural energies are either coming from God or the Satan. Human don’t have internal energy. We cannot cultivate our internal energies like what we see on those movies or stories. The source of those supernatural energies practiced through martial arts are from the evil spirits.

    I am on the road to truth just as we all our

    But what I’ve come to understand is that the Holy Spirit may be compared to things as prana or chi. I am not saying they are equal and I don’t want to pretend to know everything.

    But Jesus left the instructions to love all as He loves us and to seek the kingdom of God which he said is within

    Read the Book of John and you’ll see how John prepares the way for Jesus (the holy spirit)
    This is done through repentance… Which is essentially realizing we are on the wrong path, and correcting our ways. This is very similar to other beliefs such as destroying the ego, and knowing the true self. Or as the Bible says, denying the flesh and carrying our cross

    I do believe there is energy from Satan but also energy from God. As the Bible tells us, Satan counterfeits God’s work

    I have experienced this kind of energy through meditation after choosing to live a life of only love and changing my ways. I hope to know and learn more, but I do believe we can connect with God this way. I believe this is what is meant by being born again to see the kingdom of God

    Lead a life of love and seek Him. These are our instructions.

    Yes, any type of meditation opens you up to demonic spirits. The other day I repented if doing mindfulness meditation and renounced it. Right after renouncing it, a demon came out…I did this type of meditation twenty years ago.

    I was sent this article to read. I read it with interest. My thoughts are particularly focused on Qi Gong (which is over 5000 years old, therefore older than Jesus Christ)
    Your article states that there is no / little scientific evidence that it works.
    I thought this scientific paper may be of interest to your readers.
    There are many thoughts regarding NA being hijacked I agree with. However, given how we are being shown currently in the World (2021) about “trusting the science,” we are also being shown how it is being manipulated for financial gain and based on a deliberately biased singular narrative. Never has it been more apparent that we cannot actually trust the science especially if being promoted by global governments all singing from the same hymn sheet and massively assisted by MSM.
    I present this one paper as a counter balance. We are always guided by God to discern the truth.


      1. Anonymous

        This video showed that demons can take up occupancy in people who practice Qi Gong, and that Jesus can get them out again. Be very clear, demons can take up occupancy into just as many people who do not practice Qi Gong, and Jesus can get them out again as well. Does that make Qi Gong demonic ? I believe that Qi Gong can equally be an exit route for demons as it is a way in, so is it the Qi Gong that’s wrong or just the management of it that can be?

      Hello my name is Nadine. I was an “IV drug addict” a couple of years ago and a prostitute for 35 yrs and had multiple abortions , involved in occult AA ,NA and CA and faith healing ect…also necromancy but delivered by Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Praise God. I have stopped practicing sin but am being attacked nightly in a sexual manner, sleep paralysis ect…prayer and fasting does not seem to be working at all and I’m becoming angry ,irritable, impulsive and starting to behold the enemy a lot lately. I have electric shock feelings going through my head and vibrations through my body. I dreamt of thousands of snakes entwined into a massive rope leading up to my bedroom window and baby ones falling in my window crack, which I was trying to catch with a fork tipped stick , some escaped into the house and the rest remained outside but the rope went on as far as the eye could see like a long wide road in length and width. Recently I was called to help a young lady with fentanyl and crystal addiction who became homeless. She became sober but I couldn’t find her a place to go so I asked my landlady /boss if she wouldn’t mind the young woman coming to stay in the spare room here. She said yes. I brought the woman home. The deal was she did bible study with me once a week and refrained from watching unhealthy tv shows ect….she agreed. About two weeks later she began speaking to her boyfriend in jail on the phone from 6am to 11pm daily and avoiding me like the plague. She began darkening her room and staying in there even to eat even though the deal was that she come down and eat with us. She started responding to me like I was her enemy and talking to me in a very rude and dismissive tone. I just kept praying for her and for myself. Her boyfriend was getting out and they had been making plans ,it turned out for him to move in here with her. This plan had been taking place behind my back while I was out evangelizing she would come out of her room and talk to my boss/landlady behind my back so as to manipulate her into letting him stay here. I was told late the night before he was coming which was the next morning. I could do nothing as it’s not my home. I exploded and almost left when I found out. So embarassed and sorry to God for my lack of self control. Her boyfriend was heavy into Chakras and vertabrae energies,3rd eye stuff ect and crystal meth 20 yrs and has schizophrenia. He went from sleeping on the couch to sleeping in her room with the door open and with a day the door closed and now a lock on the door…they say they’re taking their time to get married even though claiming to be walking with Christ..I am guilty because after rebuking them , I believe I removed the sting of rebuke by being overly friendly with them and even apologetic as the lady of the house and her mother went against me too. I believe I failed God and opened the door to demons in my doing so. Im prayerfully seeking advice. I need deliverance and I believe I should move out and quit my job .


      1. Ronans

        Keep studying your Bible day and night , avoid bad TV shows , pray and always fast. Be holy , worship God in spirit not flesh. You shall be save .


      2. Marie

        The fact that you helped her and cared that is right.
        Do not change anything because of her unless you plan move out to the country.
        Right now this deceived user is riding high but it will not last long.
