Since the “latter rain” fell on the world in the 19th and 20th centuries, there has been a division regarding the legitimacy of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. While some believe that the Holy Spirit stopped His work within the 1st-century church, others argue that the Holy Spirit is still present but has been counterfeited by demons masquerading as the Holy Spirit, particularly the spirit of Kundalini/Sanskrit. In this article, we will explore the differences between the Holy Spirit and the Kundalini spirit, providing seven signs to help you discern the true from the false.
My Experiences with the Kundalini Spirit
Before we delve into the differences, let’s first understand what Kundalini is. Kundalini, in Hinduism, refers to a divine energy associated with the base of the spine. It is believed to be cultivated and awakened through tantric practices, leading to spiritual liberation [^1^]. Now, let’s explore the seven signs that distinguish the Holy Spirit from the Kundalini spirit.
The Seven Signs of the Holy Spirit & Kundalini
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is always brought about through the Word of God (Bible) and the praise of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, the Kundalini spirit simply “happens.”
The baptism of the Holy Spirit never leaves you out of control, while the Kundalini spirit takes control.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit never gets in the way of the Word of God, whereas the Kundalini spirit diverts people from the Word of God.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit always praises Jesus Christ, while the Kundalini spirit praises god/self. This specific praise of Jesus Christ serves as a differentiating factor.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit adheres to order within corporate worship, while the Kundalini spirit does not comply with any order, only seeking experience.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit always acknowledges the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, whereas the Kundalini spirit does not.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit utters prophecies/scriptures that align with 100% accuracy with the Bible. The Kundalini spirit attempts to lead people away from the Bible and into a closely related doctrine but not the actual Word of God.
While these signs can help you distinguish between the two spirits, it is crucial to remain vigilant and test the spirits, as not all manifestations may fit neatly into these categories [^2^].

The Differences Between the Holy Spirit & Demon Spirit Guides
In addition to the signs mentioned above, there are several distinct differences between the Holy Spirit and demon spirit guides:
The Holy Spirit is God, with unlimited power and knowledge, while demon spirit guides are created beings with limited power and knowledge.
The Holy Spirit values our individuality and doesn’t seek to take over our personality, whereas demon spirit guides usurp our personality.
The Holy Spirit wants us to be in control and responsible for our actions, while demons aim for total control, often rendering the person unconscious.
The Holy Spirit is gentle, with a seamless integration of His presence, while demons are harsh and easily distinguishable from the person they indwell.
The Holy Spirit is holy and pure, bringing purity into the lives of Christians, whereas demons are corrupt and tempt individuals towards sin.
The Holy Spirit always glorifies Jesus, while demons glorify themselves or the person they indwell.
The Holy Spirit never blanks out our minds but works through our conscious participation, whereas demons blank out our minds and encourage passivity.
The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins non-destructively, leading us towards repentance and peace, while demons either justify our sins or bring crushing guilt.
The Holy Spirit’s messages align with God’s Word, while demons twist Scripture to justify sin.
The Holy Spirit cannot be controlled and functions according to His will, while demons lie and make individuals believe they can control and summon them.
The Holy Spirit demands that we walk in faith, not by sight or emotions, whereas demons manipulate human emotions and encourage seeking signs.
The Holy Spirit loves us and desires to bring us into the presence of God, while demons hate us and seek to bring death and destruction.
Jesus loves us and paid for our sins on the cross, while demons demand blood sacrifices or rigid rituals.
The Holy Spirit encourages reading and understanding the Bible, while demons hinder Bible engagement and understanding.
The Holy Spirit draws us to prayer, while demons hinder prayer by any means necessary.
The Holy Spirit is not a showoff, while demons love to exhibit their power.
When the Holy Spirit transports a person in the spirit, He takes care of the body, while astral projection by demons neglects the well-being of the body.
The Holy Spirit is a Spirit of truth and never lies, while demons always lie.
The Holy Spirit encourages active learning, while demons act as mere information storage units, erasing knowledge once expelled.
The Holy Spirit requires active, conscious cooperation, whereas demons desire to take over and control.
The Holy Spirit does not engage in fortune-telling or divination, while demons provide words of knowledge and individual prophecies that lead away from God.
In our journey of faith, it is essential to discern the spirits and rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. By understanding the differences between the Holy Spirit and the Kundalini spirit, as well as demon spirit guides, we can navigate the spiritual realm with wisdom and discernment. Remember to test the spirits, aligning their messages and actions with the Word of God, and remain steadfast in the love of Jesus.
Update on July 10, 2022: Between my Salvation in 2008 and my water baptism in June 2015, I was deceived by the counterfeit spirit of Kundalini. It was only after my baptism in 2015 that I received the true Baptism of the Holy Spirit, aligning with Acts 2:38.
