George Arundale (1878-1945) was an English theosophist and the president of the Theosophical Society in 1934 after Annie Besant. He lived in the circle of Krishnamurti, the chosen “World teacher” of the theosophists. Together with his Indian wife and other chosen people, he used methods to awaken the force of kundalini, and took one initiation after another. He thinks that all statements about kundalini should be taken with the utmost caution, since it depends on how the person, who experiments, relates to these things, and the force affects different people in different ways. He writes: :
“Before anyone seeks to arouse kundalini let him know much about it, especially of its dangers….. A little knowledge may incline him to foolishness.”
He wrote more. Check this out.
The dangers of kundalini are, according to Arundale, among other things::
Increased sexual activity and expression, which leads to loss of vitality. All sexual desires are states of tension that demand an outlet.
Mental confusion, if one does not have a strong self-restraint, calm and clear thinking, and is not free from lower thought climates. Even if one gets help to awaken the force, it is completely up to the individual what the outcome will be. The ability to see if an individual is mature enough to awaken the kundalini, depends completely on the intuition, and it is undeveloped in mankind of today. (Intuition is immediate knowledge about higher truths without previous analysis.)
Man has also psychic bodies, that have to be developed and be able to bear the force.
There is great danger in disturbing the natural physical and psychic rhythm and balance, through uncontrolled stimulation of the different centers of the body. The risk is that the heart and the nervous system will be damaged and the individual will be chronically disabled, with a general deterioration of the brain, which gets overstrained. The result will be that the system collapses.
It is, then, the brain that must be able to endure an enormous pressure. A person in whom kundalini is starting to move, lives in all respects under high pressure. Arundale writes that it is a concentration of power, which is the drop that makes the beaker flow over, and hurl the unfortunate one into a horrible darkness, if he is not a spiritual athlete. He considers that on our present level of development, there are without doubt already channels between the inner worlds and man, who mainly lives in the outer world.

For a valuable chart that compares eastern religions to Charismatic practices click here.
Kundalini activation does not stop there, for some people have literally lost their minds. On the charismatic side of things, there seems to be strong similarities between eastern worship and charismatic church services, including but not limited to all kinds of weird manifestations like trances, gold dust, gemstones, gold tooth filling, feathers falling in the church, “Jesus” appearances, angels, fire tunnels, bridal paradigm, contemplative prayer, and every strange weird practice with a New Age bent, that you can imagine.
