A dangerous spirit is entering Christian churches in North America. That spirit is prophetic, offers visions, dreams, and feelings of peace. It even looks like the Holy Ghost and only the most discerning are seeing it.
Traveling has provided me an opportunity to experience many things while seeing the ministry of the Holy Spirit in lots of different circumstances. I've seen some things recently that look like the Holy Spirit but are not. There is a counterfeit Holy Spirit entering Christian churches. One of my first experiences was in a particular church service. The minister was preaching, praying, and prophesying. It looked like the Holy Spirit was moving but something was wrong. There was a clash in my spirit and I just couldn't enter into the service. My spirit was not in agreement. I even felt like my spirit was warring against something unseen. It didn't make sense to my head because everything looked right. As the service progressed I stayed in prayer then suddenly I saw it, the Holy Spirit opened my eyes and I saw another spirit on this preacher. It was one of the highest occult spirits I have ever seen. It was a serpent looking reptile curled around this man's spine and laying across his shoulders. It was really difficult to see because it camouflaged itself becoming transparent at times. Later I asked the intercessors with me if they had a witness to what we saw and heard. Like me they confirmed that the preaching was good but something was wrong. They just didn't know what it was. I told them what the Lord showed me. This person dear reader is a popular Christian speaker, writer, and television guest in America. I was very grieved in my spirit after this experience. This man was not flowing in the Holy Ghost but another spirit. I believe the name of this counterfeit Holy Ghost is Kundalini. Kundalini is a New Age serpent spirit.
Let's explore this spirit, where it came from and how it entered America. Please ask the Holy Spirit to help you see its deception. Don't just take my word for what's happening, pray and do your own research. Later in this essay I'm going to let you hear audio of this spirits' operation in a Christian church. It might even be in yours.
COMING TO AMERICA
The Kundalini spirit gained access to the Western world from India through New Age teaching. It is popularly known as Yoga. Don't for a minute think that Yoga is harmless. Yoga is an inherent part of Hindu philosophy which teaches man and nature are one with divinity.

By the time you finish reading this material you will see it for what it is, a destructive demonic spirit. Although Kundalini Yoga is popular every Christian needs to understand that Yoga is a forbidden practice. Scripture declares, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me"(Exodus 20:3). Kundalini is an anti-Christ spiritual counterfeit of the Holy Ghost. My prayer is that all Christ' Holy Ghost filled intercessors across America will see what I saw. To bind this serpent spirit, cast it out, and for every bible preacher and teacher to discern this spirit and close the church doors to its occult operations.
Back in 1967 the musical "Hair," opened with the song "Aquarius" with the memorable line, "This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius." This song swept the country and ushered in an awareness of the Aquarian age concept. The song also defined the dawning of a "New Age" with the lyrics, "When the Moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars; then peace will guide the planets, and love will steer the stars."
The Woodstock concert in New York in 1969 drew over 500,000 youth across America and was billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace and Music". New Age Yoga teacher Yogiraj Sri Swami Satchidananda opened the festival with prayer. His real name is C. K. Ramaswamy Gounder, an Indian "Yoga teacher and spiritual master." He was also the author of many spiritualists’ books on "Hatha Yoga" and influenced many including the popular artists Peter Max.
Veteran actress turned New Age teacher Shirley Maclaine came along in the early 70's teaching reincarnation, trans-channeling, and transcendental meditation. She writes, "When I walked across Spain on the pilgrimage called the "Santiago de Compostela Camino," I encountered myself in a former life. I discovered a part of me that lead to a greater understanding of myself." One of the common themes amongst New Age teachers is the focus on self. Maclaine later wrote "Out On A Limb" a popular book outlining her New Age awakening. Christians know there is no such thing as reincarnation. Scripture says,"It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
The Beatles at Rishikesh
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. When they arrived in America at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport they were greeted by an estimated three thousand fans. They gave their first live US television performance two days later on "The Ed Sullivan Show", watched by approximately 74 million viewers. There is no question that the Beatles influenced a generation of America's youth.
The Beatles were also drawn into the New Age. In 1968 they traveled to Rishikesh, India, attending an advanced transcendental meditation training session at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi that they later adopted as their guru. This event drew world wide attention and is credited with introducing the West to Indian spirituality. While there they wrote many songs later recorded on "The Beatles White Album" and "Abbey Road." Guitarist George Harrison wrote "My Sweet Lord" in 1970 a song about the Hindu god Krishna. John Lennon later wrote songs like "Imagine" released in 1971. The lyrics were anti-Christ saying, "Imagine there's no heaven. It's easy if you try....." We saw the Beatles transform music with a new sound and introduce a new spirit into the country. Harmless child’s stuff? Hardly. [Watch the Video.]
Later came Oprah Winfrey whom America wrongfully thought was a Christian.
She is in fact a New Age proponent and was host of the highest-rated talk show in television history as seen by 15 million viewers daily in 132 countries. Winfrey started her own New Age church because she believes in a mystical New Age god calling it a force. She said, “…the force, I call it God.”
Trusting in the spiritual self (Yoga beliefs) is nothing more than a perverted form of religious humanism cloaked in spiritualism. Oprah often weaves bible verses in her teachings but clearly holds to a misdirected view of God. If God does not direct a person through His Word then the only thing left are humanistic inner voices, twisted antinomian mysticism, or familiar spirits to provide guidance.
On one program with New Age authors Betty Eadie, Sophy Burnham, and Dannion Brinkley, Winfrey alluded to the book “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn, saying, “One of the biggest mistakes humans make is to believe that there is only one way. Actually, there are many diverse paths leading to what you call God.” A Christian in the audience corrected her saying that Jesus was the only way to God. The panel was upset to say the least. Oprah responded, “There couldn't possibly be only one way. Does God care about your heart or whether you called His Son Jesus?” The point is that man can’t save himself, he needs a savior. Only Christ can fill that role. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. Scripture confirms that Oprah is wrong, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
He declared, "I did not come to collect students but train teachers" and "seeing God in all" as the theme of his Kundalini Research Institute. "In the spring of 1969, soon after Singh had begun teaching in Los Angeles, a hit medley "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In" was topping the music charts and being played everywhere. The performers, "The 5th Dimension", happened to be signed to a record label owned by one of his students (and his green card sponsor), musician and entrepreneur Johnny Rivers." Rivers wrote the songs "Secret Agent Man," "Memphis" and "Baby I Need Your Lovin." The LA Times said, "His students flocked to him. Women so adored him, it became an honor just to wash his feet. Men longed for his approval. They trusted him to arrange their marriages and select their careers." There are many other guru's "god men" involved in bringing demonic Hindu spiritualism into North America but this is good for an introduction to false Christ Yoga origins.
Yoga is conditioning a new generation and becoming acceptable, offered as a means for weight loss, mental clarity, physical fitness and a harmless path to inner peace and harmony. Even schools are buying Yoga mats, promoting "Yoga Ed" and exposing our nations' children to its demonic deception. Today everything is acceptable in the public square except Christianity. Yes, Yoga is a demonic teaching that is sweeping the country. Unlike Yoga teaching man is not and can never be God. Nor can man save himself from the penalty for sin. Scripture declares, "For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Yes, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). To find ones inner god self is finding nothing.
A common trait among competitive Yoga schools is the focus on transcending to a higher state of being or consciousness. Within the teachings they have many "ways of transcending." These various ways are simply different steps to oneness with Brahman the Absolute One. That's why there are many different Yoga schools within Yoga.
The term “Yoga” comes from one of two roots "ruj" meaning to be yoked together and "yuja" meaning concentration. The question that comes to mind is, "What is a Yoga disciple yoking themselves with?" Most schools of Yoga teach a joining together with the "supreme self" and entering an esoteric condition through self-transcendence. On the surface we see Yoga as the worship of self. In other words you are god and only need to discover it through various methods from using energy from crystals, meditation, breathing exercises, chanting, or even certain dance movements.
MUSIC, DRUMS, DANCE AND THE SERPENT SPIRIT
Drums and dance are used to awaken the Kundalini spirit. The caption on this video says, "We have come to dance awake our prayers." Prayers are not awakened, they are answered. The Christian prays to the Father in the name of Jesus. Scripture declares, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you" (John 15:16).
In this video they ask the question, "Where are our drums? The reply is, "We are not supposed to play our drums anymore. They have been broken. The people that brought us here don't like the drums. They know the drums give us strength so they have forbidden us to play."
Chakra means "wheel, spinning, rotating, vibrating, or turning." In Yoga they are known as "energy or force centers" capable of receiving and transmitting energy.There are seven chakra energy centers kown as the root, belly, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown. Every chakra has its own image. The dance movements help tap into the energy in the seven charkas as the Kundalini spirit rises along the spine. During the dance the Kundalini rises from chakra to chakra causing various levels of self realization while obtaining and releasing various spiritual (occult) powers known as siddhis. These siddhis powers include physical healings, clairvoyance, levitation, magic, spiritual experiences and power for the control of self, others, and the forces of nature. The Yoga dance progresses until the serpent spirit reaches the crown of the head resulting in a union (Yoga) with the self divine. This is the Yoga goal, oneness with the universe.
This is Lara's Yoginis dance instruction. Again, this dance is used to awaken the Kundalini serpent and encourage it to rise along the chakras.
The use of multiple drums as lead instruments, combined with the chakra dance has found its way in some Christian churches. Is any of this taking place in your church? Those in the dance ministry need to guard themselves from chakra dancing. Yes, David danced before the Lord and dance is a form of worship. Just make sure your dance is to and for the glory of God. Not only has the Kundalini dance come into some churches but also civic clubs, schools, hospitals, and fitness centers. Universities and colleges even offer courses in the study of Yoga.

KING OF YOGA, KUNDALINI YOGA
The "king of Yoga" schools is Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini also means "serpent power", leads to self awareness and self knowledge elations. The following video is from a New Age conference showing a Yoga gathering with music and dance.
Listen to the words of this Kundalini Yoga song only after you plead the blood of Jesus over your mind. Do not sing it! Remember the purpose of Yoga is to unite with the self god. The words to the song are: "I am the light of the soul. I am bountiful. I am beautiful. I am rich, I am, I am." The Christian knows there is only one "I Am that I Am." His name is Christ the only begotten Son of the Living God.
This song wrongly declares that the singer is the I Am. Repeating this song over and over is a form of chanting used to connect and release the energy of the seven charkras.
Psychologist Helen Schucman wrote "The Course in Miracles" in 1965. She said the material came from an "inner voice." The book is full of demonic Gnostic heresies weaved in Christian terminology. The course teaches such things as, "The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself. God's Name is holy but no holier than yours. To call upon His Name is to call upon your own. I am in chage of the process of atonement." This demonic "you are god" teaching is consistent within New Age circles. The course on miracles aired on Oprah and Friends XM Radio throughout 2008.
Yoga teaches the coiled serpent located in the spine and through chanting will awaken the serpent, (Kundalini awakening), travel up the spine until entering an esoteric state becoming one with the god self. In that state of union with the self some see visions, hear voices, prophesy and are overcome by a sense of spiritual awareness. Paul Hood shares his Kundalini awakening as "a sense of energy rising up from the base of my spine. "He also describes a "feeling of oneness with everything." [Listen Here.]
Dance and “transmusic” is a common introduction to Kundalini Yoga. I first heard this music back in 1994 in Amsterdam. It was common in house parties. Today it draws crowds in concerts of over 50,000 youth in Europe. Today transmusic and dance parties are common along with the drug ecstasy to enhance the experience. This is the annual Sunburn Festival held at Candolim beach, Goa, India. It draws around 5,000 people.Its purpose is to entertain and promote a sense of oneness and harmony. Notice the use of transmusic and the kundalini dance.
KUNDALINI IN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES
This audio is taken from a Christian church worship service full of young people. You should pay close attention to what you hear. The pastor is well known having literally hundreds of ministry connections across America and Canada and has influenced thousands of Christians. The preaching has just ended and a crowd is gathered at the front. You can hear drums, music, counterfeit tongues, ambiguous (uncertain) prayer, the laying on of hands is taking place, and a girl just finished prophesying. She now appears to be in a spellbound condition. Let me ask some questions. Does your spirit bear witness with what you are hearing as Christian altar ministry? Do you think the Holy Spirit is in this service or is the atmosphere more conducive for the manifestation of the Kundalini spirit? Have you experienced a church service like this?
PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT
The Kundalini spirit does not lead people to Christ. It is New Age eastern mysticism. According to Wikipedia these are the physical effects of the Kundalini spirit on people:
"Physical effects are believed to be a sign of Kundalini awakening by some, but described as unwanted side effects pointing to a problem rather than progress by others. Some of the more common signs and symptoms of an awakened Kundalini include:"
Involuntary jerks, tremors, shaking, itching, tingling, and crawling sensations, especially in the arms and legs.
Energy rushes or feelings of electricity circulating the body.
Intense heat (sweating) or cold, especially as energy is experienced passing through the chakras.
Spontaneous pranayama (rapid breathing or hyperventilation), asanas (positions), mudras (hand movements) and bandhas (stiffening of the muscles).
Visions or sounds at times associated with a particular chakra (mystic visions and prophecy).
Diminished sexual desire or a state of constant orgasm.
Emotional purging in which particular emotions become dominant (uncontrollable) for short periods of time.
Pressure inside the skull and headache
Bliss, feelings of infinite love and universal connectedness, transcendent awareness.
As you can see some of the effects like a feelings of peace, visions and prophecy can lead the practitioner to think they have encountered the Holy Spirit. Just because a person experiences something supernatural does not mean their experience was from the Holy Spirit. Another effect not listed is demon possession.
As Holy Spirit filled leaders in the Church of Christ we need to obey the Scripture that declares, "Beloved, believe not every spirit but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). We must be ever watchful servants of the Lord in our ministries both feeding and protecting the sheep.
As already said, a dangerous occult spirit is entering Christian churches across America. I ask Christ' ministers and prayer warriors to stand with me against this spirit. Like thousands of you we believe in the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Kundalini spirit is not the Holy Spirit. Prophets get up on the wall, watch, pray, signal, and warn. Let's close the door to this evil spirit operating in our churches.
Deceptive occult powers are entering our churches. Never have we needed spiritual discernment like we do today. Spiritual warriors like you let nothing stop them from taking action to achieve greater levels of spiritual discernment. That’s why I put together the “Spiritual Discernment Kit.” The Holy Spirit told me “people can’t come out of what they can’t see.” Take action and order your kit today. Spiritual discernment belongs to you. So let’s get going right now.
