Energy, Qi Gong, and Kundalini Syndrome
One of the main reasons that I believed what the voice was telling me was that I was experiencing all kinds of physical “evidence” in my body. I had read about the “ecstasy of enlightenment” but had not really understood how drawing closer to God could make you feel ecstatic. Soon after I started hearing the voice regularly, however, I would randomly have a feeling of ecstatic physical pleasure wash over me. He would wake me up in the middle of the night with this feeling, and would cause me to feel it periodically throughout the day. I would be vacuuming or doing the dishes and suddenly feel these waves of pleasure. Even at the time, I thought it was very strange. Why would God or Jesus be causing me to feel these things? It was actually very intrusive. Waking me up in the middle of the night with these feelings felt like a violation.
In the Bible, Jesus is able to heal people. He is able to bring people’s bodies back from death. I call this ability of his “body language” because he is able to speak the language of the body. I thought that he was the only one who could affect the physical body. Therefore, when I felt my body being manipulated, it did not occur to me that the devil or demons could be making me feel these things. I could feel waves of “energy” passing through my body. I could feel energy pulsing in my hands like electricity.
I started going to a Qi Gong class because I could feel this energy in my hands. Qi Gong is similar to Tai Chi and deals with the manipulation of energy. These feelings, however, were manufactured by someone in spirit who has the ability to affect the body in this way. I was not actually feeling energy; I was being tricked into thinking that because of what he was able to make me feel in my physical body. I went to a reiki “healer,” which is “energy healing.” When she moved her hands above my body, I could feel the energy moving inside of me like a hot wind. Again, this was merely a trick. She thought she could feel the energy too, but the devil was tricking both of us.
Once the devil was making me feel a range of things in my body--some good and some terrible--I thought that I was experiencing something called kundalini syndrome. I now believe that what people call kundalini syndrome is actually the work of the devil and his demons in the human body. He can make you feel any physical feeling. Ask Jesus for help and these feelings will begin to dissipate. Don't stop asking him for help; you might need to ask every day, more than once a day. Ask him for help whenever you feel that you may be under attack.
The devil can affect your sense of smell. I would smell things like the perfume that my grandmother used to wear when she was living. He indicated to me that her soul was “visiting” me at that time, and that was why I was smelling the perfume. Several other times he caused me to smell things that were not actually present. He also caused my daughter to smell these things that were not present as if to confirm to me that I was not making it up or imagining things.
In Mathew 24:23-24 Jesus tells his disciples, “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Lo, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” All I can say is that someone in spirit came to me, claiming to be Jesus, and did show me signs and wonders. He definitely tricked me, but it could have been much worse had I not asked Jesus for help. I believe he saved me from the devil’s clutches.
