Battling a Kundalini or Serpent Spirit in a Loved One

I just got a email from a bereaved wife whose husband has come under the kundalini spirit.  He was a believer in Yeshua, even following the Torah, to one degree or another, but has now turned to Eastern, new-age and Hindu practices including trying to awaken the kundalini (or coiled snake) spirit in himself through Hindu practice (such as meditation and breathing exercises) in order to experience spiritual enlightenment. The wife pleaded for advice on what to do. She is a Messianic, Torah-believing saint and is at wit’s end on what to do. Below was my response to her. Perhaps this will help some who is in a similar situation. I would also appreciate any thoughts and insights (based on the Scriptures) some of you may have who have dealt with this demon spirit.  Natan
The kundalini or serpent spirit (in Greek, puthon or python;  see Acts 16:16) is a demon or fallen spirit that is trying to inhabit a human body. It goes back to the worship of Baal in Canaan and the religion of the nephilim. That’s another discussion. Elohim was so opposed to Baal worship that he instructed the Israelites to perform genocide on the Baal worshipers in the Promised Land. This is a very rebellious, wicked and perverse spirit.
I suspect that spiritual doorways were opened sometime in the past for this evil spirit to come into your husband, and he either never really repented of them or never knew about them. They can hide undetected for a long time and become “a familiar spirit,” since they meld in with the person’s personality.
This evil spirit could have been generationally passed on down due to ancestral sin, or his own sins (dabbling in the occult, etc. when young), or it could have been picked up somewhere along the way in his Pentecostal church experience. Now I’m not against the Pentecostal or Charismatic movements in the church. I spent time there and was greatly blessed. I was baptized in the Spirit in my living room in 1990 and then received a fuller immersion in the Spirit at a Foursquare church in 1992. I was in several P. and C. churches between ’92 and ’98 and experienced a lot—including the good, the bad and the ugly. For example, some of the things  going on in Toronto in the early to mid-‘90s was very new age. Same with the so-called revivals in Florida a little later. I was in some meetings where men were trying to “make things happen” instead of letting the Spirit lead along biblical lines. This is very dangerous and can lead to spiritual witchcraft. I even saw videos of Copeland and Hagen come under some sort of bizarre spirit and they both slide out of their chairs like snakes and with their tongues doing the snake thing. Do I need to mention the bizarre and demonic manifestations at some Todd Bently meetings? I could go on. My research shows that the focus of these meetings was more on manifestations and not on the genuine work of the Ruach including repentance, holiness/righteousness, and obedience to Yeshua and his commands. Perhaps you husband picked something up in that arena.
Whatever the case, your husband is under the great delusion of lying spirits.
The kundalini spirit or any other evil spirit is difficult to deal with, since we don’t have the authority to go against a person’s will; i.e., if they want the spirit in them it makes it difficult to cast it out. We can cast it out against their will in Yeshua’s name by the Spirit, but it will only come back in stronger later, since the person didn’t fill the spiritual void left in them when the demon was cast out with Yeshua (Matt 12:25–30 and 43–45; Luke 11:14–26).
This is where prayer and fasting come in—to determine the will and battle strategies of Elohim on how to combat this evil in your spouse.
When praying, cover your prayers in the blood of Yeshua (Rev 12:11), so the enemy won’t hear the plans, and thus be able to mount a defense against them.
Do intercessionary repentance for your husband as Daniel and Nehemiah did for the Jews. YHVH heard and answered them. Pray that YHVH will give him the gift of repentance. Pray and do spiritual warfare against the lying and deluding spirits that are deceiving him.
Also, you can remit his past sins as Yeshua gave his disciples (and us) the authority to do in John 20:22. What is the purpose of this? As I understand it, we can remit the past sins of someone so that their sins are no longer holding the person down such that they can’t even help themselves spiritually since they are so burdened down due to guilt, shame, fear, rejection, bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, delusion or whatever. This will potentially enable them to be able to see the true reality of their situation and come to repentance and faith in Yeshua.
As I study the Scriptures on spiritual warfare, I see Yeshua and the disciples only openly rebuking demonic spirits that are actually manifesting at that moment. Everything else was done by prayer in the name of Yeshua, not on the battlefield, but before the throne of Elohim through Yeshua our Great High Priest there in heaven’s courtroom. The reason I mention this is that I see many spiritual warfare advocates literally shouting and yelling at the devi, which isn’t a scriptural thing to dol. Where is this in the Bible? Yes, when on the battlefield, and when confronting a demon, Yeshua gave us the authority over all of Satan’s powers (Luke 9:1; 10:19; Mark 16:17). But when not actually on the battlefield, but in prayer, we must go to the the courtroom of heaven and appeal to the Father as the Righteous Judge through Yeshua, our Advocate or spiritual attorney or Great High Priest. These distinctions and perimeters are important to know, so that we follow heaven’s protocols thus insuring greater success in our battles against the evil one.
Finally, despite all of our best efforts, if the person we’re interceding for and spiritually warring over does not want to leave their sin, repent and turn to Yeshua, there is little or nothing we can do, since they have free will to make their choices including rejecting Yeshua and following Satan/Baal straight into the lake of fire. That being said, we need to pray for ourselves, so that we will know what to do. If it’s a spouse, Yah will either give us the his strength and grace to endure the situation, or, if it gets too bad so that person becomes abusive and begins to persecute us, it may be necessary to depart the marriuage for good. These are all difficult choices that must be made through much prayer, fasting and seeking the will, the heart and the leading of the Father through his Set-Apart Spirit.

  1. Bill Schnoebelen, from With One Accord Ministries, may have some helpful, biblical insight into this.

  2. Yes ..I agree with all the REPLYS..Natan your reply to this dear Lady is excellent. You have so carefully & thoughtfully given her excellent advice in a very difficult situation…I guess it is important to support & uphold this lady in prayer …at least for Elohim to give her strength in the battle & situation & much wisdom …..that u have given her also…I know I watched a good teaching video on the Kundalini spirit by Andrew STROM he is from N.Z. originally.

  3. My advice: pray, read the Word, worship, and focus on Yah rather than your husband’s confusion or depraved, lost state (could be either). Yah is Sovereign, even over evil spirits. Praying that Yah does a work through His Holy Spirit in their hearts and opens their eyes usually works for me when I am confronted by evil spirits among close family members. At times, fasting is necessary (Mark 9:29). I do not believe our will is sovereign, only Yah is sovereign. Our will is influenced by the world, Satan, and Yah’s Holy Spirit, and it is our heart that determines which influences lead us.(Mat. 4:1) Still, only Yah has the power to change the heart according to His sovereign and perfect purpose and will. (example Pharaoh in Exodus) Do not assume that you can fight this on your own strength. It is Yah that gives us the gift of faith. (Eph. 2:8) Faith is what gives us our strength to fight evil. (Matt. 17:20) I would also advise that continuing to set the example in the home is extremely important. (1 Peter 3:1) Your marriage is your highest calling and ministry. Yah has a plan, and His will always overcomes. Pray that Yah gives you grace and strength to be a better wife (we can always improve) and to be able to win over your husband if he is still in a depraved, lost, state. Also, if your husband has been given a circumcised heart, Yah will not allow Him to stay where he is at but will, with chastisement, bring Him back to a place of repentance. He doesn’t allow His children to run wild.

    • Thank you for your excellent remarks. However, I don’t find Pharaoh to be a proof that man has no free will. You see, upon closer examination, the Scriptures say that both Pharaoh hardened his own and that Elohim hardened it as well. What’s going on here? Pharaoh was given an opportunity to repent and let the Israelites go, but he said no. His defiance against Elohim was an act of his own free will. Once he hardened his heart, then YHVH further hardened it (after Pharaoh had already moved in that direction) to accomplish his sovereign purposes.

      Pharaoh is a biblical symbol for Satan, the god of this age. He rebelled against Elohim as well as an act of his free will. Ever since then, the sovereign Elohim has been using Satan to accomplish his purposes. But it all started with the choice of the individual to go against Elohim, which is an act of one’s free will.

      Yes, YHVH could turn us all into automatons or robots and force us to do his will, but where is the virtue in this? How are humans to develop godly character? No, this is pure fatalism and turns Elohim into a merciless tyrant. I can’t and won’t go there, and the Bible doesn’t promote such a view of Elohim!

  4. Thank you Natan, as always for sound, biblical counsel. Very hard place to be, and sadly, many are. Yah takes us through every step mentioned in all these responses if we are interceding for a loved one. Unfortunately, there is a harsh reality I personally have had to process; to the one “who was once enlightened…if they shall fall away”, as Hebrews 6:4-6 tells us; or the righteous man turning from his righteousness, in Ezekiel chapters 3, 18 and 33. Natan, please let me know if I am misunderstanding the scriptures as it pertains to a believers destiny here.
    With much fasting and prayer, Yah will show what needs to be done, and give the grace and peace to do it. Where abuse is present, safety a must! Very difficult situation, but for the praying loved one, the sharpening, pruning, and dying to oneself; loving with the love of Elohim, when it is a most unlovable and difficult situation; can only purify us the more. Romans 8:28 assures us He will work all things together for our good, according to His purposes, if we love Him. With that, we give Yah the highest praise!

    • Yes, the Bible teaches that one can fall away spiritually. The corollary scripture verse to Hebrew 6:4–6 is Her 10:26. See also 1 Tim 1:9; 4:1; 2 Cor 13:5 and 1 John 2:19. Look at Judas! Also consider 2 These 2:3; Matt 7:21-23 and 2 Tim 4:4.

  5. Thanks for sharing this. I had never heard of this until about a year ago from a dear sister who was suffering from this kundalini spirit; believing that she had received the HOLY spirit. She was involved in the charismatic denomination and so was I; being taught that speaking in tongues was the sign you have the the Holy Spirit of Yah. She mention to me that she no longer does this gibberish practice and has been set free from demonic depression. This made me question if when I speak in the unknown language as taught by the church if I might be under this kundalini spirit. Ever since I heard about this it has made me almost stop speaking in this unknown language. I really need to know if I am speaking in tongues as the scriptures describe or am I being deceived by the enemy! Comments are welcomed. Shalom

    • This is a good question and the very same one I asked myself some 20 years ago when I first learned about the Hindu kundalini spirit. YHVH was gracious enough to give me the answer to the question at that time, and I have been going strong and operating in the gifts of the Spirit ever since without fear.

      Remember this. Satan has counterfeited nearly everything that is biblical in his demonic false religions including the gifts of the Spirit. Because of this, some people have walked away from the gifts of the Spirit and have taken what’s called a cessationist viewpoint in that they believe the gifts of the Spirit are no longer for us today. This is a reactionary view that is not supported scripturally. It’s a spiritual cop-out. I used to believe this until I got so hungry for more of Yeshua and so sick of dead religion that as I was crying out for him that  one night while worshipping and praising Yeshua, he baptized me in his Ruach 27 years ago. I was in my living room when it happened and had never been in a Spirit-filled (Pentecostal or Charismatic) church in my lift up to that point.

      Yeshua told us to judge with righteous judgment (John 7:24). How do we do this? By examining the fruits (Matt 7:15–20) of our actions and insuring that everything lines up with the Word of Elohim. When operating in the gifts of the Spirit including the gift of speaking in tongues, what are the fruits? Are they the fruit of the Spirit as outlined in Gal 5:22–25 and not the works of the flesh (Gal 5:19–21)? Does it bring you closer to Yeshua? Does it result in praise, worship and the glorification of Elohim? Does it edify and build us up in our spirit man? Does it promote holiness and righteousness? If yes, then this it is a good thing. If not, then it’s from another source. Satan isn’t going to give us anything that expands the kingdom of Elohim at his expense and promotes our spiritual well-being before YHVH.

      Twenty years ago YHVH told me that if I loved Yeshua by walking faithfully in his Torah commandments that this would keep me on the straight and narrow path and that I wouldn’t be deceived or led into some spiritual counterfeit. You see, Torah is both a fence and a guardrail. It’s a fence that protects us by keeping the spiritual predators out, but it’s also a guardrail that keep us on the road of life and prevents us from going off the edge and over the cliff spiritually.

      I suspect that some in the church world have picked up a kundalini spirit not because they were seeking Yeshua with all their hearts, but because they were seeking an experience. This is idolatry. When we seek anything other than Yeshua, especially supernatural experiences, we’ll get it, for sure, but it won’t be from the Ruach! When, on the other hand, we’re seeking Yeshua with all our heart to love and serve him as it says in Luke 11:9-13, he won’t give us a serpent or a stone (i.e. demonic counterfeit), but will give us good gifts. You can trust YHVH on this!!!!

  6. Please may i ask how do youget rid of this? If youre the one who opened the doors and did things? My mind is a mess. Spent years and years as well creating an evil persona for myself. Now all thast left is evil spirits and and evil self. How do I get a new personality and mostly be cleaned, and believe. Im constantly in fear and everything is always going wrong. Everything is wicked in me. I feel defeated and disgusting and like an animal.
    Please tell me who I should ask – my personality itself is rebellious and judgmental of everyone and pushes away help. Im scared of which church or people to go to. I only have my immediate family at present.
    Has this to do with changing my will? Its not happening over night, every time I want to go in the right direction everything gets worse.
    Should I spend time in the Word even if I dont understand, should I pray even though Im so evil – just keep thinking God doesnt hear sinners.
    Its like everything evil and disgusting and wicked is in me. Im literaly at a point of repeating in my head Gods love is greater to just convince myself mentally. Im in deep torment and its all my fault, I did this. I constantly feel unsavable 🙁

    Please tell me how to get rid of evil spirits and evil nature?? I need not only them to be removed but the works of the devil to be destroyed in me.
    I need to make amends as well.
    Does anyone about King Manessah? I think God saved Him. How do you come to true repentance? I just feel fake – and mocky, and smirky. Its disgusting.

    Physically and mentally Im destroyed as I am spiritually. Im so blind to the light. My mother says she intercedes for me to get out of the grip of Satan.
    Ive gone through so much insanity. Ive been told this is all about choice.
    Mary Magdalene was delivered – I want to be like her.
    I just get extremely anxious, fearful, paralysed with fear a lot.

    • First: Repent of all sin.
      Second: Come under the power and authority of Yeshua the Messiah, obey and follow him.
      Third: Pray for and receive the help of his Set-Apart (Holy) Spirit.
      Fourth: Resist evil through Yeshua and with his help.
      Fifth: Bathe your mind and personal spirit in the Word of Elohim.
      Sixth: On the search engine on this blog’s front page, type in “spiritual warfare” for additional help in battling the evil spirits that are trying to control and destroy you. Spiritual warfare works.
      Seventh: Email our ministry (go to, and I will send you my notes on spiritual warfare the will help you immensely.


    • Getting baptized and studying and committing a life of the teachings of Jesus changed everything for me in a moment. Prayer several times a day to Jesus and his father, our father again supported a very quick shift. You can then ask, command insist that the spirits leave you and they will. Walk and pray with Jesus he will support you

    • Do not give up praying to God. He doesn’t give anyone a spirit of fear, so that is coming from the enemy via unclean spirits to torment the mind.

      You are already forgiven if you have repented. Let the atonement on the cross cover you! Please understand what you are experiencing is spiritual warfare, and every one of us deals with it—especially as we try to get closer to God. Yes, get into the Word of God! Satan is called “the accuser of the brethren.” He’ll use past sins and other devices to try and keep you bound. You can call this out for what it is. Don’t wallow in your sins, but rather, give thanks and praise to God!

      There is peace and victory in declaring that Jesus is Lord!

      Another suggestion is to look up Derek Prince on YouTube for bible instruction, repentance and deliverance prayers. Excellent bible teacher, and he knew much about this subject and has helped millions of people.

  7. Good day, I have been seeing serpent in my dreams for years now especially when I have a big expectations or deal with an event that can improve my life. Most time it is seeing myself in my previous secondary school and house that I have left for more than 25years. This dreams are always disturbing. I pray aggressively against it and sometimes I kill those serpents, cut them into half or in one occasion I see someone dressed in white and using leg to kill those serpents. I am no longer comfortable with this dream because my financial life is almost zero. Kindly help

  8. I had a spontaneous awaking of the kundalini. I’ve been a christian since the age of seven when I had a vision of Jesus being crucified and God saying that Jesus died for my sins. Been following Jesus ever since. When I was in my 30’s I had a strong desire for reading scripture and understanding it and was asking for the Holy Spirit. Instead I got the kundalini but didn’t know what it was. Just got the word kundalini and later chakras. Had many prophectic dreams,images and foreknowledge. Through this process I underwent I had Jesus at my right hand-side through it all. It was a very scary time for me but also had lots of euphoria with it. Jesus said it would get very rough but I had to go through it all. He never took it away till after I hit arhat and the eternal silence. There’s a final test in the spirit realm against a kingdom of 42 kings who tested me. The horizon was water and fire and a staircase one had to go up. I also say the big lotus flower in the sventh chakra which is violet and was rebirthed in this realm of monad. Later after the process I got the word familiar spirit. Then I spiritually battled it by resisting it in Jesus’s name. It was hard to defeat. I lost my gifts with it for the longest time. For the longest time I had no gifts but I pressed in harder to follow Jesus and to now Him and G_d the Father. Recently I got a calling to be a watchman and recieved the real Holy Spirit. It is far different than before and hard to get used to. Im still learning to understand the Holy Spirit and to heed the still small voice. I don’t get visions anymore but I have the gift of knowing. I get scripture verses of things that will shortly happen. Mostly prophetic verses. I also felt on my forehead a seal being put on but what’s it’s for I don’t know. I know christians are sealed with the Holy Spirit.
