Kundalini Awakening/Arousal/Activation or Really Demonic Possession?

Many people are seeking some supernatural thrill to fulfill them instead of going to the living God of the Bible. I believe since all people without Christ have a spiritual vacuum within themselves they will seek spiritual experiences in hopes it will fulfill them.

The devil, which the Bible calls the deceiver, knows this so he offers people a counterfeit. Satan has his snares for those seeking such experiences. One of which is called kundalini awakening (also called kundalini activation or kundalini arousal), which is basically the event where the kundalini “takes over” a person, or when it rises from the base of the spine to the top of his head.

There are a plethora of Youtube videos about how to have a kundalini awakening. Many of these videos have hundreds of thousands of views. There are many websites that promote it and have been numerous books written about it.

My contention is that kundalini is nothing more than a demon or an evil spirit and that it is extremely dangerous to have a kundalini awakening. This so-called awakening is a deception for people to allow themselves to be demonized since a lot of times demons can’t just enter inside of a person but needs an open “door” to go through. These doors are easily opened by New Age and occult practices. The promises of the benefits of kundalini are bait for the enemy to snare a victim through demonization as satan’s demons have a desire to inhabit a human body (read Mark 5:1-13; Matt. 12:43-45). This is the antithesis of one filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18) in which born again Christians have when they repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ.

What Exactly is Kundalini?

_kundalinirising_hashtag_on_Instagram_•_Photos_and_Videos

From a Christian perspective it seems to be an evil spirit, but how do non-Christians describe it? They described it as an energy “life force” or spiritual energy. It has been part of the belief system of many cultures for centuries. In Japan, it is known as Ki, which is the source of the word Reiki. In traditional Chinese culture it is called qichi or ch’i. Mana to the Hawaiians is a form of spiritual energy. In Sanskrit, Prana is the word for “life force”, and Shakti means strength, psychic energy, or life force. According to various teachings, kundalini is a type of “corporeal energy”. Kundalini in Sanskrit literally means “coiled up” or “coiling like a snake”.

_kundaliniserpent_hashtag_on_Instagram_•_Photos_and_Videos

The well known occult book entitled Serpent Power: The Secrets of Tantric and Shaktic Yoga by Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodroffe). Avalon writes on the back cover [emphasis mine]:

Who is Kundalini, the Serpent Power? Mythologically, she is an aspect of shakti (power or energy) and consort of Shiva. Philosophically she is the creative energy that forms mind and matter, and comes to rest in the lowest form of matter. She is consciousness: the power of matter to know itself. In terms of Tantric practice, she is the mysterious power that resides in the human body and can be awakened by suitable techniques: special meditations and yogic practices of a particularly powerful nature. She is The Goddess: the ultimate heart of many areas of Eastern religion, not only of Hinduism.”

One website that promotes kundalini reads [emphasis mine]:

“These names refer to the Kundalini-Sakti, or Supreme Power in the human body by the arousing of which the Yoga is achieved….by the agency of the KundaliniSakti, which, in order to give it an English name, I have here called Serpent Power. Kundala means coiled. The power is the Goddess (Devi) Kundalini, or that which is coiled; for Her form is that of a coiled and sleeping serpent in the lowest bodily centre, at the base of the spinal column, until by the means described She is aroused in that Yoga which is named after Her.”

source

But this energy is also described as having an intelligence [emphasis mine]:

“The unique perspective of Siddha Mahayoga is that because kundalini is an intelligent force it will, upon awakening, naturally direct the practice of the student. All that is required is that the student completely surrender to this force. As a result of kundalini’s unfoldment spontaneous purifying movements, called kriyas will occur…”

source

Why would some supposed mere impersonal force seem to have an intelligence? Perhaps it isn’t a mere force but an actual spirit, albeit an evil one.

Another website reads [emphasis mine]:

The Shaktipat Master is a vessel for transmission, Goddess is the source… I do not care for the term “kundalini Master”, because it suggests mastery of Goddess, … control of it, and that is an ego illusion. One does not Master kundalini, one steps aside and allows it to do its work through you, as the vessel.

Source

How can one be so trusting of an energy that seems to have intelligence to totally yield to it?

Gopi Krishna in his book, The Awakening of Kundalini (pages 13-14), says kundalini is traditionally known as [emphasis mine],

“… Durga the creatrix, Chandi the fierce and bloodthirsty, and Kali the destroyer. She is also Bhajangi the serpent. As Chandi or Kali she has a garland of skulls around her neck and drinks human blood.”

Another website reads that the snake “is the most common and most well recognized symbol of Kundalini energy.” Source

A Coincidence it is a Snake or Serpent?

_kundalinisnake_hashtag_on_Instagram_•_Photos_and_Videos copy.png

Isn’t that interesting? Out of all the things in the universe the kundalini is depicted as a serpent. The Bible reads that satan, the adversary, is a serpent.

In Genesis Ch. 3:1-5 satan is in the form of a serpent who deceives Eve. He described as subtle (or crafty) and tempts Eve with the lie that she will be like gods. That sounds awfully similar to what kundalini promises practitioners – to achieve godhood or to become one with the divine. Indeed, many yogis often declare themselves to have achieved “self-realization” – the acknowledgment of one’s own unity with Brahman, the “Universal Divine consciousness”.

The_Serpent___500px.png

The Bible reads in Genesis 3:1-5:

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

In the Bible satan is described as deceiver of the whole world (Rev. 12:9), but again also a serpent:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Kundalini is also called the destroyer. Interesting because in Revelation 11:9 it reads there is an evil spirit in the pit, who some believe to be the devil:

And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

In Hebrew, the name “Abaddon” means “place of destruction”; the Greek title “Apollyon” literally means “The Destroyer.” Also in John 10:10 Jesus said of satan that he comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.

How People Open Themselves to Receive Kundalini

How do people try to what they call have a kundalini awakening? By listening to biaurnal beats, meditation, chanting, breathing exercises, receiving a shaktipat (triggered by an advanced spiritual teacher or guru), or the practice of yoga among other ways.

free-woman-yoga-silhouette-vector

Indeed, the awakening of kundalini energy is the ultimate aim of all yoga practice. Hans Ulrich Rieker, an author of numerous books and well known authority on yoga and meditation, says: “Kundalini [is] the mainstay of all yoga practices” (The Yoga of Light: Hatha Yoga Pradipika, 101).

Kundalini awakenings can happen spontaneously when one has been involved in New Age or occult practices, even when he wasn’t seeking it. They can also occur as a result of drug experiences. During so-called kundalini arousal, the experiences may last for months or even years, in which case a lengthy time of insanity and/or demonization is endured.

According to Christian authors John Ankerberg and John Weldon, kundalini arousal or its equivalent is found in many false religions, occult practices, and in New Age medicine:

…it is… encountered in scores of the new religions, many occult practices, and in some practices of New Age medicine. Indeed, we have found no less than 15 different New Age health techniques in which proponents claim that their methods may arouse kundalini. For example, certain body work programs such as the Alexander method may arouse kundalini…

(Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, 606)

The Purpose or Goal of Kundalini

According to Indian yogis and numerous New Age and occult practitioners from many different fields, the awakening of kundalini is a highly desirable and beneficial transformation that people undergo on their spiritual journey. They say that people just need to “let go”, and “surrender to”, and “trust through this process”. While many people sincerely and wholeheartedly believe this, vast amounts of occult literature warn that this so-called “awakening” is not without extreme dangers. Even practitioners themselves who have endorsed it recount their horrible experiences (more details about this later).

But according to Swami Prajananda, “The main purpose of its awakening in a seeker is to enable him to attain Godhood.” source

Interestingly enough, the devil’s primal rebellion was precisely about his desire to be “as God,” and he even offered Eve the same tantalizing perspective (Genesis 3:4-5; Isaiah 14:12-14). It is not surprising that the enemy, satan, would make demonization look like godhood, and call it a kundalini awakening, enlightenment, higher consciousness or whatever other enticing buzz words thrown around to try to hook people.

Kundalini is a Worldwide Phenomena

_kundaliniserpent_hashtag_on_Instagram_•_Photos_and_Videos.png

It is called by many different names around the world but in the end it is always viewed as a “force”, “energy” or “power” – common terms one would hear in the world of the New Age. Kundalini energy, the foundation and core of Hinduism’s pantheistic belief system, is the exact same power that fuels idolatry and the open worship of demons in countless other religions, not just in Hinduism.

Ankerberg and Weldon wrote:

In our study of 70 new religions, we found kundalini arousal, or something similar, in roughly 50 percent of them, particularly the mystical, New Age, occult religions… For example, Hindu and Buddhist gurus, who account for scores of the new religions, are typically possessed by spirits. They often describe themselves in that manner, although they refer to it as a ‘divinizing’ – not a demonizing- process… But when describing their spirit, or ‘energy,’ possession, it is often directly linked to kundalini activity…. Whether it is called “superamental consciousness,” ‘god-possession,’ ‘divine companionship,’ or some other euphemism, the reality is the same. Consciousness researcher John White concludes:

Although the word Kundalini comes from the yogic tradition, nearly all the world’s major religions, spiritual paths, and genuine occult traditions see something akin to the kundalini experience as having significance in “divinizing” a person. The word itself may not appear in the traditions, but the concept is there nevertheless, wearing a different name yet recognizable as a key to attaining godlike stature.

(Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, 606)

The Physical Manifestations of Kundalini

Mind you, the manifestations and symptoms of kundalini are not coming from Christians but from secular sources, many of which endorse kundalini. This should be the most clear cut evidence that getting involved with kundalini is demonic in nature. Reading the following is it worth the risks to get involved with this?

Teresa Bergen, who teaches yoga, wrote an article called What Happens After Your kundalini Awakens?, said:

People describe mental and physical symptoms when their Kundalini awakens. These include trembling, spontaneous movement, and visual and auditory hallucinations, such as hearing birds chirping or human voices. Some people spontaneously recite mantras or make animal noises. According to Dr. Bonnie Greenwell, a therapist who works with people’s Kundalini energy, the feelings can be intense, but aren’t usually painful. However, Kundalini is unstoppable, and trying to control it can cause pain.

source

Another website lists some other symptoms. Yes, symptoms can include the feelings of bliss and laughter but it is merely a counterfeit of true joy that can only be found in Jesus [emphasis mine]:

Muscle twitches, cramps or spasms.

Energy rushes or immense electricity circulating the body

Itching, vibrating, prickling, tingling, stinging or crawling sensations

Intense heat or cold

Involuntary bodily movements (occur more often during meditation, rest or sleep): jerking, tremors, shaking; feeling an inner force pushing one into postures or moving one’s body in unusual ways.  (May be misdiagnosed as epilepsy, restless legs syndrome, or PLMD

Episodes of extreme hyperactivity or, conversely, overwhelming fatigue

Emotional outbursts; rapid mood shifts; seemingly unprovoked or excessive episodes of grief, fear, rage, depression

Spontaneous vocalizations (including laughing and weeping) — are as unintentional and uncontrollable as hiccoughs.

Hearing an inner sound or sounds, classically described as a flute, drum, waterfall, birds singing, bees buzzing but which may also sound like roaring, whooshing, or thunderous noises or like ringing in the ears.

Mental confusion; difficulty concentrating

Altered states of consciousness: heightened awareness; spontaneous trance states; mystical experiences (if the individual’s prior belief system is too threatened by these, they can lead to bouts of psychosis or self-grandiosity)

Ecstasy, bliss and intervals of tremendous joy, love, peace and compassion

Psychic experiences: extrasensory perception; out-of-body experiences; past life memories; astral travel; direct awareness of auras and chakras; contact with spirit guides through inner voices, dreams or visions; healing powers source

Yet another website reveals about the physical effects of kundalini, many of which are negative. They have a name for when a person is what a Christian would see as demonization. They call it kundalini syndrome (also called kundalini psychosis).

A website promoting it reads [emphasis mine]:

“Kundalini syndrome is a set of symptoms resulting from a near-death experience, intense trauma, prolonged meditation or yogic practice, nervous breakdowns, or some other form of spiritual emergency.

Symptoms of this syndrome are also thought to result from kundalini awakening, when it occurs unexpectedly or the proper precautions are not followed.”

“…Someone who undertakes awakening their kundalini must be prepared though, as in rare cases this energy can have negative effects – known as kundalini syndrome.”

This affliction can come on suddenly or signs may appear gradually over time.

A person suffering from it might experience any number of the following symptoms:

Physical:
  • Headache
  • Hallucinations
  • Sensation that they are vibrating
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sudden limb movements
  • Respiratory problems
  • Fever or chills
  • Sudden pain
Mental/Emotional:
  • Intense fear and/or paranoia
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar mood
  • Spontaneous out of body experiences
  • Deregulation of thoughts
  • Unexpected trance-like states
  • Altered states of consciousness

Source

What is even more sad is that they promote the continuation of New Age practices to try receieve deliverance from the so-called kundalini syndrome:

“Because this issue is related to harmful energetic responses within the body, the only way to stop it is through energy healing. These methods include yoga, meditation, controlled breathing, and opening the chakras. It may take some time to address the negative energy in your body, and it’s best to do it slowly.”

Source

Another website promoting kundalini reads [emphasis mine]:

Many people know that the risen kundalini flings open gates to all sorts of mystical, paranormal and magical vistas but few realize it can also dramatically impact the body. A large percentage of Shared Transformation subscribers have reported long bouts of strange illness as well as radical mental, emotional, interpersonal, psychic, spiritual and lifestyle changes. Over and again we hear stories of frustrating, sometimes desperate visits to doctors, healers, counselors, etc. who neither understood nor were able to help with the myriad pains and problems catalyzed by raging kundalini.

source

Here is a shocking admission:

Over and again we hear stories of frustrating, sometimes desperate visits to doctors, healers, counsellors, etc. who neither understood nor were able to help with the myriad pains and problems catalysed by raging kundalini….

source

The Taoist “Master” Chao Pi Ch-en admitted that,

as time passes, demonic states will occur to the practiser [sic]… Significantly, yogic energy manifesations and possession are sometimes intially sensed by the experiences as the work of an evil spirit. But this primary impression is ‘corrected’ in accordance with Hindu theory, classifying the phenomena as a ‘divine process’…

(Encyclopedia of the New Age, 609)

As you just read the symptoms of kundalini can be harrowing.

Testimonies of the Dangers of Kundalini From Practitioners

Eastern Guru Muktananda’s (1908-1982) own so-called spiritual enlightenment, a path he endorsed to his disciples, apparently involved the demonic.

download (6)

In Muktananda’s own words [emphasis mine]:

I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions. My body started to move, and went on like this in a confused sort of way…. After a time, my breathing changed, becoming disturbed. Sometimes my abdomen would swell with air, after which I would exhale it with great force. Often the breath that I took in would be held inside me. I became more and more frightened… my mind was sick with fear…

My thoughts became confused, meaningless.My limbs and body got hotter and hotter. My head felt heavy, and every pore in me began to ache. When I breathed out, my breath stopped outside. When I breathed in, it stopped inside. This was terribly painful and I lost my courage. Something told me that I would die at any moment… I could not understand what was happening, how it was happening, who was making it happen….

By now it was after 9:00. Someone had seated himself in my eyes and was making me see things… It seemed that I was being controlled by some power which made me do all these things. My intellect was completely unstable… I heard hordes of people screaming frightfully… and saw strange creatures from six to fifty feet tall, neither demons nor demigods, but human in form, dancing naked, their mouths gaping open. Their screeching was horrible and apocalyptic… An army of ghosts and demons surrounded me. All the while I was locked tight in the lotus posture, my eyes closed, my chin pressed down against my throat so that no air could escape.

Then I felt a searing pain…. I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture. I felt as if my legs had been nailed down permanently in this position. My arms were completely immobilized….

Then, from over the water, a moonlike sphere about four feet in diameter came floating in. It stopped in front of me. This radiant, white ball struck against my eyes and then passed inside me. I am writing this just as I saw it. It is not a dream or an allegory, but a scene which actually happened–that sphere came down from the sky and entered me….My tongue curled up against my palate, and my eyes closed. I saw a dazzling light in my forehead and I was terrified. I was still lock in the lotus posture, and then my head was forced down and glued to the ground….

I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger. I must have roared very loudly, for the people around actually thought that a tiger had gotten into the sugarcane field….

I am in a terrible state. I have gone completely insane. You may not be able to see it from the outside, but, inside, I am crazy…. My body began to twist….Now, it was not I who meditated; meditation forced itself on me.It came spontaneously; it was in all the joints of my body. Then, suddenly, a red light came before me with such force that it seemed to have been living inside me. It was two feet tall and shone brightly….

Every part of my body was emitting loud crackling and popping sounds….

At this time, I understood nothing about the various experiences….

Only afterward did I learn that they were all part of the process pertaining to [spiritual enlightenment]…. People who have experienced it call it the awakening of the Kundalini. The experiences I had had under the mango trees were due to the grace of my Gurudev Nityananda; they were all his prasad [blessing]….

Sometimes I would jump and hop like a frog, and sometimes my limbs would shake violently as though shaken by a deity in the form of my guru had spread all through me as Chiti [consciousness], and was shaking me with his inner Shakti [power]….

The power of the guru’s grace enters the disciple’s body in a subtle form and does many great things…. Every day I had meditation like that. Sometimes my body would writhe and twist like a snake’s, and a hissing sound would come from inside me….

Sometimes my neck moved so violently that it made loud cracking sounds, and I became frightened…. I had many astonishing movements like this. Sometimes my neck would roll my head around so vigorously that it would bend right below my shoulders so that I could see my back. When the intensity lessened, I became peaceful again. But because I did not understand these kriyas [spontaneous yoga movements], I was always worried and afraid. Later, however, I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrara [upper psychic center].

(Quoted in The Coming Darkness, 149-151)

Muktananda was apparently demon possessed. But some people involved with kundalini just like Muktananda don’t interpret their terrible experience as demon possession because of the false worldview they are enmeshed in. They deliberately cultivate possession for purposes of supposed spiritual enlightenment. They see is as God possession. They reinterpret what is really demon possession as divine possession.

Gopi Krishna (1903-1984) was a founder of one of the several Kundalini Research Centers in the world. He recorded his own yoga-induced kundalini experiences [emphasis mine]:

It was variable for many years, painful, obsessive, even phantasmic. I have passed through almost all the stages of different mediumistic, psychotic and other types of mind, for sometime I was hovering between sanity and insanity. I was writing in many languages, some of which I never knew [the mediumistic ability of automatic writing].

(Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, 234)

It is worth noting that Krishna believes that most schizophrenics and manic depressives represent “malfunctioning” kundalini energy, thus admitting that it can produce mental derangement.

The Bible reads the living God doesn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Tim. 1:7). But this is the total opposite of what Muktananada experienced.

In his book The Primal Power in Man or the Kundalini, Shakti, Swami Narayanananda describes what one experiences which one with discerning eyes would see as demon possession:

These hot currents that reach the brain center heat the brain, make the mind fickle, bring insomnia, brain disorder, insanity and incurable diseases. For the hot currents keep the mind wide awake and if a person does not know how to check the currents and to bring down the partly risen kundalini shakti to safer centers, one suffers terribly and it may ruin the whole life of a person or lead one to insanity. This is why we see many become insane, many get brain defects, and many others get some incurable diseases after deep sorrow.

(Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, 607)

More descriptions while under the influence of kundalini:

“I really felt frightened, as the Power seemed something which could consume me.” (The Serpent Power: The secrets of Tantric and Shaktic Yoga, 21)

“Your mind gets influenced spiritually as if some spirit has taken possession of your body and under that influence, different postures of yoga are involuntarily performed without the pain or fatigue.” (Kundalini Evolution and Enlightenment, 95)

One kundalini practitioner described the “awakening” as a sense of going down into an abyss, or “black hole.” source

That’s interesting because in the Bible the abyss is not written about in a positive light. In fact, when Jesus Christ, who is God incarnated, walked the earth 2,000 years ago demons cried out in fear that He would not send them to the abyss (Luke 8:31).

Not just unbelievers are getting involved with Kundalini but also professing Christians. The following is a story about Mineda J. McCleave:

She became interested in the occult and, despite God’s warnings against all such involvement (Deuteronomy 18:9-12), she naively trusted that God would protect her from anything evil… After immersing herself in occult literature, she began meditation. The result was kundalini arousal, ten years of serious mental problems, and a thorough conversion to Christian mysticism. in the end, McCleave interpreted her occult kundalini experience as the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Her story provides a powerful look at the consequences of occult practice in contemporary American spiritual life:

“I plunged into meditation prayer…. I began to have problems relating to the world around me. I had shifts in consciousness during my non-meditative hours…. I was again bothered with alternating periods of euphoria, anxiety, depression, and, sometimes, despair. I was surprised to find that my peaceful prayer life was often counterbalanced with thoughts of suicide. I could not understand these strange moods…. This activity, added to long periods of prayer, was causing changes, painful ones, in my mind and body. The physical, mental, and emotional problems that surfaced were so dramatic that I had to quit working.

I withdrew from society and had to rely upon my family to care for and support me…. I had begun a long ‘dark night of the soul,’ and it lasted for ten years. My peaceful prayers changed to frantic spiritual cries for help…. Finally, in 1975, when I was thirty-seven years old, I was hospitalized three times in the psychiatric ward of the local hospital…. I could no longer cope with my agitated mind. I was besieged with migraine headaches and no longer had any control over my life.

Reluctantly, I endured eight months of therapy…. On April 6, 1976… I was jarred out of my prayer by what felt like a current of energy that seemed to enter my body through my left foot…. This current was constant for four days and nights. With it there was increased feeling of great body heat. I felt as though I were burning up from the inside out. Relatives could feel heat emanating from the front and back of my head while their hands were an inch away from me. It was a frightening experience. I knew, intuitively, that I had somehow triggered this current through intense prayer, but I had no knowledge of how to stop it.

My mind was hyperhyperactive…. Physically, I went through a variety of symptoms…. Emotionally, I went up and down the keyboard of euphoria, joy, bewilderment, anxiety, depression, and the familiar despair. I was, at times, deluded and often disoriented. On one occasion, I actually believed I had died. Such peace! I was almost disappointed to realize I hadn’t. I was afraid to leave my apartment for fear someone would notice my schizophrenic-like behavior. I gazed into a mirror and observed a ‘wild’ look– the same strange look I had noticed in 1973 after I took a week of biofeedback training…. Despite my discomfort, I believed that what was happening to me was good, regardless of contrary appearances. I believed, “All things work together for good to them that love God.” Yet, while trying to adjust to this marvelous energy that was coursing through my mind and body, now intermittently, I exhibited so many psychiatric symptoms that the psychologist could no longer with me….

Finally, in December 1976, by the grace of God, I was led to an open-minded, tolerant, compassionate, caring Christian…. Bill Grimmer– an extraordinary man. He was not afraid of the occult. He was not afraid of kundalini…. My psychiatrist helped me to remember that I am still a Christian, not a yogi. He encouraged me to continue in my search–to reread the Scriptures and the writing of the mystics– to find the common denominator….

As I reread the Scriptures and the writings of the mystics, I was amazed at the new insights I gained…. The accomplished yogis explained their attainments in terms of kundalini. The Christian mystics, unaware of the Hindu term, described the same phenomenon, but named the animating, motivating spiritual force at work within them as the Holy Spirit…. The Christian experience [of kundalini] is described as the ‘baptism of the Holy Spirit’.”

(Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, 608-609)

From a Christian perspective, confusing what is really of God and the demonic has always been the goal of satan for purposes of spiritual deception. Sadly, the enemy has achieved a significant level of success.

Perusing through some videos on Youtube you can read a lot of video titles suggesting the dangers of trying to awaken the kundalini (mind you as far as I know they are all not Christian):

 

Sadly, many of them will try to explain away their horrible experience with kundalini with New Age psycho-babble.

Christians who were once involved with kundalini shared their testimony in the comment section in some of the videos of those who promote kundalini:

 

When a Christian receives the gift of the Holy Spirit by repenting and turning to the Lord Jesus Christ there is never such potential bad manifestations or symptoms as found with Kundalini.

The Bible reads the fruits of the Holy Spirit are “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance…” (Gal. 5:22-23). This is unlike the “fruits” of kundalini for many practitioners. 

Conclusion

Capture+_2018-02-11-07-45-11-1

Well, if it acts like a devil, destroys like a devil, and looks like a devil….. then it is probably a devil.

The Bible reads satan changes into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:4). Surely he would sell people the idea of receiving kundalini to many people under the guise of enlightenment or higher consciousness. There is nothing new under the sun.

In my experience with deliverance – that is casting demons out of people by the authority of Jesus Christ – I have come across this spirit in people. Sometimes the spirit will lie dormant in a person but will retaliate against the person once he has repented and turned to the Lord Jesus Christ. Just all the more evidence that this spirit was a sinister spirit all along.


The Lord and God Jesus Christ, the Savior and Deliverer

If you are suffering from kundalini demon possession there is no one who can deliver you from the subjection other than the Lord Jesus Christ. If you don’t have a Savior than there is no better Savior than Jesus Christ.

Jesus is not entirely what they commonly say in Eastern religions and the New Age. Cults always deny the true nature of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is God Almighty (John 1:1; Revelation 1:8) and Creator (Colossians 1:16) who was conceived in the womb of Mary by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18-25). He incarnated in the flesh (John 1:14), lived a sinless life (1 Peter 2:22), died on the cross for the sins of many (Matthew 26:28), and was resurrected (Luke 24:6-7). And He is coming back to judge the world in righteousness (2 Timothy 4:1).

Jesus has power over satan’s kingdom. He routinely cast demons out of people during His earthly ministry (Matthew 8:31) and has given His believers the same authority (Luke 10:19). In fact, demons are terrified of Jesus (Mark 1:24-26; James 2:19). Jesus is the One who has all authority in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18).

The Bible, the word of God, makes the call for all people to come to repentance:

16 - 1 (86).png

“And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” – Matthew 3:2

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.” – Acts 3:19

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” – Proverbs 28:13

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” – Matthew 5:32-33

“But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;” – Romans 5:2

“When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.” – Acts 11:18

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:” – Acts 17:30

The Bible also calls people to put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16

“Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:” – Romans 3:22

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” – Romans 3:24

“To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:26

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” – Ephesians 2:8-9

The Bible is clear that Jesus Christ is the only way:

“6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name [Jesus] under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

If you want someone to pray with you to receive Jesus and/or prayer for deliverance feel free to contact me.


 

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. SO TRUE! SPOT ON!!!
    When I realized that I didn’t like what was happening in my body and in my life (btw caused by an enlightenment and yoga and tantra teacher, aka warlock, aka satanist!!) and when I just had come to the conclusion that I was severely demonized by the evil spirit of kundalini, I didn’t speak to many people about it, because I was also very frustrated, had cut myself off from society and friends and a “normal life” – but I remember speaking to 2 “new agers” whom I trusted and they were envious!!! And they said I had had a kundalini awakening and they seriously wanted me to teach them how I got there… what makes these things SO dangerous is that they also come with symptoms which are extremely pleasant and blissful and also very psychic and orgasmic, basically what everybody who is “into New Age” desires. I had mainly pleasant symptoms, yet, I knew that something wasn’t right and I searched and searched and searched – at first in all the wrong places, energy healers and the like and then, finally, I came across Derek Prince and got saved – HALLELUJAH!!!
    I cannot warn people enough about this, it is absolutely certain a DEMONIC energy and it will kill you if you don’t get rid of it!
    Stay away from yoga, meditation, tantra, hinduism and anything guruish or eastern or mantras or manifesting. If you have been involved in any of it, you need to repent and renounce it and ask OUR LORD for forgiveness- I am a walking, talking, living witness that only JESUS CHRIST can save from these things!
    I hope that everyone reading this will understand and get saved themselves and also spread the information how dangerous this stuff IS!
    GOD bless you for doing all this research and publishing THE TRUTH and I pray that many people will find your blog and that GOD will bless you richly for your work! In JESUS’ name! Amen.

  2. Dear J. Williams:

    I would like to offer you a different perspective to your beliefs about kundalini awakening. Based on your opinion, a kundalini awakening is evil and associated with satan and demonic possession. I would like to share with you my experience with kundalini awakening.

    I have experienced all of the symptoms of a kundalini awakening, some of which were difficult for me but ALL of which helped me grow and blossom into the person I am today. I still experience the physical symptoms which is the light vibrating buzzing in my body when I am in a relaxed state. This never happened to me before I started doing intense kundalini meditations and yoga. So after a lot of research I know what I am experiencing is what people define as a kundalini awakening.

    For me, the experience has been magical, positive, and transformative in the best way. Before my awakening, I was a selfish, spoiled, insecure, and miserable girl who was a bit lost and going through life doing what everyone else did or wanted or expected. The woman I am today is someone I could only dream about becoming but I never knew how to get there.

    Since my awakening I have experienced the following changes:
    – I have become more compassionate towards other people
    – I have completely stopped drinking alcohol because I feel it is a mask and it is not healthy for my body
    – I have transitioned to a plant based diet because I feel compassion for animals who suffer because of our inhumane and money-driven meat industry
    – I have began caring about our environment because I know that mother nature is a gift from God
    – I have become more fascinated by nature, I began to enjoy hiking and outdoor activities which I never did before
    – I am less focused on material possessions, I do not shop as much as I did before wasting my money on ‘things’
    – I have started to take very good care of my body through fitness and yoga, because of this I am confident and happy in my own skin
    – I have calmed my mind through meditation which has allowed me to see things in HD (high definition); I am more focused and organized
    -I am able to read people and their emotions, and have become highly sensitive to others (which can be very difficult when dealing with toxic people)
    – I was able to quit my 9-5 job that I hated and grow my business which has been profitable and amazing for me; It has given me the freedom to travel and live my life to the fullest
    – It makes me happy to be positive with others and to spread love and light wherever I go
    – I love to encourage others to be the best versions of themselves
    – I love to see the best in people despite their flaws
    – I have improved my relationship with my mom which was turbulent before. I was never able to see her and the love she has for me the way I do now
    – My dream is to start some kind of non-profit organization or charity about a cause that I am passionate about
    – I realized that I don’t want to be on this earth paying bills until I die. I want to do something good for our world. This coms from a place in my heart that has expanded since my kundalini awakening.

    With that being said, I would love to know your response to my kundalini awakening and how you think that any evil force can be behind my transformation.

    What I dislike about your post is that it is scaring people and you are spreading a lot of fear and negativity (just like the news). Why don’t you try approaching life through love and light instead of with fear and hate? If you believe in God, do you think that he wants you to be spreading fear instead of love? Negativity instead of positivity? Ask yourself these questions.

  3. Hello A.M.,

    Thanks for visiting this blog and giving a well written reply to my post.

    As you can read in my post and Eva’s post in the comment section, the devil can given pleasent feelings and even “bless” people. The devil is very deceiving. He is the “god” (a false god) of this age who runs this earth until Jesus returns. The devil once offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world so surely he can “bless” people. As long as the person is on the broad road to destruction (hellfire), which Jesus warned about, the enemy can “bless” the person to try to keep the person away from turning to the Lord and God Jesus Christ for salvation – to have your sins blotted out. But I guarantee you if you repented and turned the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life, and the only way to the Father, the evil spirits that are attached to you will turn against you. This happened to me. Once I repented of my sins and turned to Jesus all hell broke loose against me. Demons literally tried to kill me. And I was never involved in New Age practices such as meditation and yoga which are huge demonic door openers, so I know others who were in New Age can possibly have a worst experience.

    That said, I have prayed for many people that have been tormented by this so-called kundalini spirit. If it is a good thing then why does it torment some people? Why does it try to resist when it is prayed against by the authority of Jesus Christ? The fact is it is a demon.

    You may see this as negative or hateful but the Biblical truth is we are all under the wrath of God, and we are all in darkness until we repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. The enemy has you focused on the here and now and not about the state of your eternal soul. Jesus asked what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?

    I would strongly suggest you repent and turn to Jesus so He can give you the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth. The living God is real and He is love but He is also a just Judge and His only provision to escape His judgment is by turning to the Lord Jesus, the Man who knew no sin but became sin for you on the cross. He died, was buried, and was resurrected and His coming back to judge the world in righteousness.

    If you ever want to pray to receive Jesus let me know.

  4. My experiences started after attempted suicide as a result of severe depression. A demon later came in my head, and using his smooth voice, kept trying to persuade me to kill myself. It was most terrible experience I ever had. Soon after, when I was by myself one night, a vertical column of warmth came down upon me and heated me up. It felt like being in the arms of Jesus. I melted like wax. This brought me into a search for spirituality. I was trying to follow Jesus. But somehow through my church, I was lead into yoga. One said it would be good to meditate at the Buddhist temple. I had what was called a “kundalini blast”, a term given by an Indian guru who sent me a question list to see if I had suffered “kundalini syndrome”. When a friend brought me to a yoga studio for the first time, I had what looked like epileptic seizures. I was face down on the concrete floor writhing with trembling. I did a lot of research into it, trying to understand what had happened. I learned in detail the pathways and locations that kundalini would follow. That led to going to a weekend retreat where I felt spacey afterwards. I thought prana or kundalini energy was simply a natural part of one’s energetic body, never considering it to be demonic. It was deception and seduction. The list goes on and on. I read about remote viewing, ESP, aural colors, astral projection. Once I caused electrical disturbances in my apartment. Another time I had fainted and was briefly transported to another time and place, seemingly it was a monastery or church in Spain hundreds of years ago. I could see the energies moving up and down my fingers. I even tried to measure the voltage. I went several times to a shakipat – kundalini meditation in a tiny room behind a yoga studio. During the session, I saw the squiggly energies buzz all over our guide. The light in the room turned red. I had spasmodic movements (kriyas) that lasted over 1.5 years. But one night I asked the Holy Spirit to purify me and to not deny me, Within five seconds, I was flat down on the floor. A force surrounded me and clamped down on me so intensely that I could not breathe. I was paralyzed. It let up after 30 seconds and I caught a breath. It clamped down again, and then again. I was in a soaking sweat. I was terrified something was trying to possess me. The next day at work it happened again in my office! I scurried home and slept for three days. One of the clergy from the church said I had a mystical experience. I found my way into searching for union with God. I still had Patanjali and other occult books around. I got my Reiki master attunement and had a pendulum divination crystal that reacted to occult energies. It would even glow! But even with all this stuff going on, I was still searching for the Truth. I found my way into the Orthodox church and had an epiphany on my first visit. I have repented of all the demonic occult practices that I was seduced into and flee from all of it. Now I live to go to Church, visit monasteries, and pray to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Resurrection, the Truth, the Way, the Life. He is my Redeemer and my Shepherd. I am nothing without Jesus.

  5. Dear J., thanks for your comment. You may wish to investigate the issue regarding idols in the Orthodox church. I think you are referring to the icons and believe we worship them. That is truly not the case. Full explanations from within the Orthodox church can be found on this topic should you wish to know.
