Chakras and Kundalini

Updated on November 7, 2013


For my first topic, I would like to jump right into chakras and kundalini. For those who do not know, the chakras are energy centers in your body that many Eastern beliefs focus on and nowadays New Age beliefs include. These chakras have had spiritual attention for thousands of years and are largely associated with yoga, psychic powers, and enlightenment. Kundalini is connected to the chakras but greatly separated as well. For those unaware of kundalini, it is the spiraling of two snakes from your bottom chakra, the Muladhara chakra, or Root chakra and results in a "energy enlightenment." I will be breaking these two topics down from experience and into a Christian and truly enlightened perspective to show the Truth. It is up to you, the reader, to decide.

As mentioned above, chakras are energy centers or portals located throughout your body. There are seven main chakras and multiple minor ones, the most notable being your palms. The main chakras are as follows:

  • The Root/Muladhara Chakra (located at the bottom of your spine)
  • The Sacral/Swadhistkana Chakra (located above root)
  • The Solar Plexus/Manipura Chakra (located in your core)
  • The Heart/Anahata Chakra (located in the center of your chest)
  • The Throat/Vishuddha Chakra (located in the center of your throat)
  • The Brow(third eye)/Ajna Chakra (located in forehead, between eyebrows)
  • The Crown/Sahasrara Chakra (located above the top of your head)

These chakras all have their own colors and properties. Although these properties are debated among different sects of spirituality, they can be given a rough label. The Root is red, and is known for material aspects and grounding, some say elimination. The Sacral is orange and is mostly associated with sexual drive. The Solar Plexus, yellow, is linked to basic energy and drive, as it is your core and of power drive with the Heart chakra, green, being of love and compassion. Many argue that the Heart is where your "life force" comes from and is the most important of all chakras, but others argue the Brow or Crown is. Following the heart is the Throat chakra, light blue. This is mostly associated with self expression, creativity and learning. The Brow, blue and sometimes purple, is the most known chakra, it is better known as the Third Eye and is the resting place of intellect, intuition and insight. A lot of beliefs center around this "portal of wisdom" such as the Buddha, Hinduism, New Age and almost all spiritual belief systems. Last, but not least, is the Crown chakra, violet/white on top, which is known as the "connection" to the greater source, the supreme light. It is meant to be the channel from us to what is "above" us.

These centers vibrate and your energetic health is based on how closed or clean your chakras are. There are many forms of practice to improve the health of your chakra system such as yoga, reiki healing, chakra awakening, and other things which I will discuss in later articles. Many studies have proven these chakras to be real, through electromagnetism and when one's third eye is open you can actually see the light of it by looking slight above with your eyes closed. The chakras are core in spirituality and enlightenment.

Kundalini is not as well known as the chakra system, but it is still widely recognized and practiced. Although I do not suggest in the least getting involved into kundalini, there are many books such as Kundalini Rising by Ken Wilber, Awakening Kundalini by Lawrence Edwards and others which I have personally studied in my days of spirituality. This practice is represented by the "goddess" and two serpents spiraling up your chakras from your Root chakra and coming up to your crown, or sometimes right above your Brow. A popular and specific practice for kundalini is Kundalini Yoga and one I was personally studying was a branch of Kirya Yoga. The two serpents are originally in their "resting" place, coiled together at the bottom of your chakras, in the root chakra. People can activate this by meditation and yoga, having it awoken by a guru, or even come to fruition by a random awakening, which is usually scary for the recipient. The serpents are described in Tantric Hinduism as the following:

  • The solar nadi
  • The lunar nadi

The snake symbolizes wisdom and immortality, power and the shedding of its skin represents rebirth. It is a usual symbol of spirit and power, as in the East it is usually seen as a dove or bird, representing freedom. The snake is evil in many Western beliefs, mainly Christianity, but is revered greatly in Eastern beliefs. The symbolism of these things will be explained soon. Kundalini is not just a spiritual matter but has been studied and explained by many other sects of belief and society, such as Carl Jung the renowned psychologist and philosopher.


The results, or better yet the side effects of both chakra awakening and kundalini are vast and seemingly endless. It is hard to understand these results from a spiritual perspective as it seems you are just "opening to the limitless consciousness of the universe" and it seems to be nothing but good. Awakening your chakras results in feeling better, feeling healthier and having more energy and seemingly happier. Your life seems to go smoothly, and you are opened up to perceiving more of this world as well as being able to harness psychic powers. You will be able to (in many cases, such as mine) be able to enter trance and "travel" through your chakras. You will have visions and "understanding." Your life force energy, or prana, will be circulating throughout your body as if a stream of water. You will be able to channel your energy throughout your spiritual bodies (which I will explain in later articles) and use your open and circulating chakras in meditating, helping to bring you into a deeper meditative state and into trance. Chakras are mostly beneficial to yoga and spiritual power, travel, and growth.

Many spiritual teachers and gurus call this balancing and controlling your energy.

Kundalini, on the other hand, has many terrible and frightening side effects. When a random awakening happens your entire life can flip upside down and you will have trouble sleeping, eating, and living. Awakening kundalini too rapidly results in an amplified version of these side effects and can be very dangerous spiritually, physically, and mentally. Some of these side effects are as follows:

  • Restlessness
  • Oversleeping as well
  • Powerful and terrifying dreams
  • Intense and scary visions
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Uncomfortable spiritual experiences
  • Worst of all, thinking you are God

Many people with their belief in spirituality practice kundalini awakening and see it as becoming enlightened. Some people do not have bad side effects, but most do due to lack of patience, bringing the snakes up improperly, or just not being prepared for the rising along many other situations.

All in all, both chakras and kundalini bring you towards spiritual enlightenment and push you in growth towards "revealing your inner nature" and controlling your energy, thoughts, life, and self. Many are unaware of what these things truly are and walk down this path with no light, usually getting lost in the dark.

Breaking it down

Now that I have briefly explained the background of chakras and kundalini I will now expose and explain the truth about these things. The chakra system and kundalini is satanic. It is from satan himself, and is very dangerous to participate in. It is part of the forbidden knowledge, and in every sense is against God; YHWH our Father, the True God of gods. I will explain this now and show you how this is. Take in mind that I used to practice these things and this is not from a close minded perspective, but from someone who has walked this path and got deeply into this stuff, relying on my third eye for my spiritual "light."

First off I would like to begin with kundalini. Although there are no definite scriptures against kundalini and chakras, there are plenty against magic, witchcraft, and matters of spirituality outside of God. There is no "thou shalt not practice kundalini" but it is evident in the essence of it. Many do not realize this, but the path of enlightenment is truly a labyrinth of satan. The root word in Hebrew of satan's serpent identity means "the shining one," or in a more thorough English translation: one that is appealing, attractive and shining to the eyes. We know, as Christians, that satan comes as an angel of light and is deceiving. The greatest trick he could perform is to disguise himself and lead humanity to a belief in which he is not shown, but is pulling the strings behind the curtain.

In kundalini there are two serpents, two shining serpents who rest at the bottom of your lower chakra and spiral up to the top. I personally see this as symbolic of satan resting in hell(root chakra-it is red after all) and trying to lift himself to God(crown chakra, channel to the universe), as explained in Isaiah 14:12-14. When the serpents rise in us we tend to believe we are literally God (or at least a god). It is impossible to deny that it is strange that the symbolism, and the literal vision of kundalini are two serpents. Satan is usually depicted as a snake, and here is kundalini, two snakes seemingly full and made of light.

To the right I have posted a picture of the baphomet, or a representation of satan. Although this is just a drawing, this image has been associated with satan for a long time throughout history and for further proof, you can meet this creature. You don't want to, but you can, especially when your kundalini is awoken. As you see depicted in the picture, the baphomet (satan) is shown making a pose with his hands and has a pentagram on his forehead as well as a modern-day-caduceus shown under and around his core. Most of society see the caduceus as the medical symbol but I assure you it truly is a symbol of kundalini. The symbol is usually explained as Hermes' from Greek mythology's staff but it represents the chakra system and the kundalini serpents spiraling up it. This shows the pagan beliefs that are "hidden" into our society, especially our America "under God" without us even noticing. Satan being associated with kundalini in this picture is perfect, because it explains the origin of it itself.

The pentagram on the satan shown is symbolic for the third eye. Never did Jesus speak of yoga, the third eye, or kundalini. Many people use Matthew 6:22 to defend the third eye (as I once did too) because it says "when thine eye becomes single the whole body is filled with light" but this is a misconception. First off, the third eye is a part of sorcery and "wilderness" spirituality. The word single in this translation comes from the Greek word "haplous" which is translated to "single as to purpose." What Jesus was saying, to lightly paraphrase, was if your eye(mind) is focused on God then your whole body is filled with Light(God). If it is distracted, looking up, down, sideways you will lead astray from Him and His teachings. Any argument against is typical from spiritual people trying to justify their beliefs and take what Jesus said out of context without properly researching what He really was saying. I used to do this as well, but the third eye is obviously evil.

If we are using improper translations and supporting/basing our beliefs off of them, I would counter that side and play along by using the next verse Matthew 6:23 KJV; "but if thine eye (third eye) be evil, thy would body shall be full of darkness(satan). If therefore the light the light that is in thee (third eye "light" - satan) be darkness, how great is that darkness!" Although that is pretty on point, it is still being use improperly, regardless if it supports my belief or not. Proper translations and research must be used. The third eye is seen in many cultures and beliefs as the "evil eye" and that alone is self explanatory. This popular picture shows this too. Satanists and pagans (well known as the opposite of Christianity/Judaism and as God's "arch-nemesis religion") participate in practices opening and using the third eye, as well as chakras and kundalini, that explains enough as well.

To continue, I would like to inform all readers first that the following is truly my opinion, and that is all it equates to. This paragraph and the next cannot be used as fact or solid information, I am just simply sharing a curiosity I have. I will show the end of this opinion with the the words "finished." In Revelations chapter 13 it speaks of people receiving the mark of the beast on their foreheads and/or right hand. In Chapter 19 verse 20 it states that those with the mark will be cast into hell. As we know, the mark of the beast is from Revelations 13:16-18 and has to do with buying or selling, relating it to satan's number of 666. In some translations (although I use the Authorized 1611 edition for correct translations) it states that the mark is upon the forehead and the palms, and this sparks my curiosity which i will explain.

It is something to ponder on, not to rely on, but to simply think about that the verses might be also referring to chakras, the third eye, and sorcery. As we know the New Age movement and general spirituality is satan's religion, holding the same principals of his true religions paganism and satanism and there are two main symbols of this enlightenment: the third eye, and the palm chakra known as hamsa. These are without a doubt supported by satan, and associated with his number 666. These verses also might be condemning all people with the mark (chakra) of the beast (satan) on their foreheads (third eye) and hands/palms (palm chakra, hamsa, usually used for energy healing and practices alike such as reiki) as it is part of sorcery and the beliefs God warned the Israelites and us to abstain from. This is just an opinion and a speculation of mine, but it is worth thinking about. Finished.

The relation of satan being a serpent of light, shining and appealing, and the kundalini process being exactly that is too exact to be considered a mere coincidence. As the bible states we are not to participate in any practices of these types (Deut 18:9-14, Is 47:12-14, Gal 5:20, Is 8:19, etc) as it truly sorcery and magic. Even though there are no scriptures specifically against chakras and kundalini, it is up to us and revelations from God to understand that this is entering a maze of satan and falls under the category of satanism, in its purest form. The true nature of satanism is to worship ones' self as God and he will even fool those to think he is not real. Awakening your chakras and kundalini is walking with satan and the only True Way to heaven and true life is Jesus Christ: "because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matthew 7:14 KJV.

It is hard to explain things which cannot be proven by logical and physical evidence, but you cannot prove or disprove celestial matters with carnal tools. People may argue that debunking certain spiritual beliefs with other spiritual beliefs is pointless but it is not wise to call everything in existence a coincidence and if one belief has certain aspects of it that relate directly to another, without the cultures really being connected, it is safe to assume that they are talking about the same thing with different, let us say, "spiritual terminology." In Christian defense, satan wears masks and comes as different gods and deities to different cultures to turn people from God. He has been prospering in doing so with his spiritual and enlightenment beliefs and I urge people to connect the metaphorical and literal dots. The Lord warned His children of the pagan beliefs thousands of years ago and even explained the creation of Babylon. From Babylon we can trace numerous different cultures and beliefs, not just historically but with archaeological evidence too.

Keep in mind that resistance to truth is the one thing that keeps us from understanding what is. Many times we want a belief that agrees with how we feel already and we show resentment towards it, keeping us from finding out any more and getting comfortable with where we are. The only way i learned any of this and escaped the illusion of satan was to keep seeking and pushing myself, even if I didn't necessarily like what I was going towards. It is very obvious what the truth is and a lot of times people will understand the evilness of kundalini but not chakras, but understand that they are very closely related and one compliments the other. If one is wrong, isn't the other as well? Kundalini is simply the frosting to the chakra cake.

Biblical backup

For understanding this from a biblical perspective, you can only use certain scriptures regarding sorcery, magic, and things along those lines. Below are the Words of God warning us to stay away from these practices, as they are a sin unto Him and He is the True God. The "god" spiritual gurus, teachers, and partakers talk about is truly satan. We know that our Lord would not support these beliefs, as He abolishes them repeatedly.

"When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee." Deuteronomy 18:9-12

"Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 19:31

"And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?" Isaiah 8:19

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Revelations 21:8

"And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger." 2 Chronicles 33:6

"Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver." Acts 19:19

"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21

"..For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.." 1 Samuel 15:23

"And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:" Micah 5:12

I would like to post this verse for people, and would like you all to focus heavily on it:

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." .. 1 John 4:1-3.

I do urge all readers to ask any questions or share their experiences. I greatly appreciate feedback and even more I would like to help anybody on a personal level if they are struggling through this type of thing. I share these truths to keep people away from satan's tricks and come to God and find rest for their souls. I have been through these things and got very deep into them, and although I did not get into too much detail with my opener article I went through a lot of suffering and spiritual torment because of these things.

It is truly a trap and I will always keep people in my prayers and help them to the best of my ability to understand and get out of this situation. All the power belongs to God YHWH and He will always rescue you, you just need to give Him your faith and He will fight for you, all you need to do is be still (Exodus 14:14). As for Christians stuck in these things from a recent conversion or being attacked by spirits and even satan himself I urge you to cling to and use Isaiah 54:17 in your warfare and declare your freedom in Jesus' Name.

I know spirituality and enlightenment is appealing and may seem like true freedom: many people, and even I at one point, see God and Christianity as unattractive and a bunch of rules, keeping us ignorant and from the true awakening and freedom of our souls. I urge you all to see that this is a trick from satan and there is no true freedom than that of being with God in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Please, feel free to add a comment to this article and for personal matters I may be contacted at I will never ignore you.

I pray for all of your spiritual liberties and declare the chains to be broken in Jesus' Holy Name! By the Power of His Blood that He spilled upon this earth, Amen.

Shalom, peace be with you.

      This is the furthest from the truth I have experienced this first hand and it was born out of my compassion as a child for all of the sufferings of the world out of unconditional love where I cried and prayed myself almost to point where I couldn't breathe asking God why and what was I to do as a small child to stop the suffering! I'm sorry to say u are wrong please do not!!!! Speak on this further you could be causing harm to people! I'm sure you didn't mean this I'm sure u meant well but please stop! Truth is one key element for kundalini awakenings one doesn't reach enlightenment without it. love and peace to all living beings! Christine

      thank you Rick so much for this article, very well explained; there are no chakras, no kundalini, no astral body and projection; demons have brainwashed so many people into believing in all this rubbish, all you involved in occult - give up the occult nonsense and ask the true God of the Bible to show you the truth, then you'll see how dangerous these chakra, kundalini and other practices are, stop being blind and open your eyes, May the true God lead you all to the truth and the salvation of Jesus Christ!

      I enjoyed reading your perspective on things and I have few things to ask, clarify and share with you if possible. If you still use this site please get back to me I would appreciate it and maybe yourself too.

      Thank you for taking the time to write this article. I read this one and the other one that you wrote. I had no idea that this type of spirituality goes against Christianity. The devil is constantly deceiving us. I am so happy that I found this and will discontinue any association with chakra and third eye practices. You mentioned yoga as well? What I can do instead of yoga to stretch my body out and become more flexible? I would like to make sure all my actions and thinking line up with the word of God.
