How to Travel in the Spirit, Seer Stories

The Invisible Car…

So, life is fleeting. Yesterday I was almost hit head on by some large SUV-driving speeder who just had to pass someone RIGHT THEN on a residential, somewhat rural 50MPH road in front of my house and a school. He darted around the car, sped up seemingly without looking, almost right into me;  I had to slam on my brakes and swerve into the shoulder/ditch to avoid a head-on at 50/50 MPH. I would have likely been killed. I was pretty shaken up. I saw him in my rear view mirror speeding away like nothing happened. I LOVE my life. I love my kids. I really don’t want to leave them motherless. Life is precious, but it makes us humble, knowing that we are never really in control. It was like that guy didn’t even see me in the oncoming lane! Why in the world would he swerve to pass a car right into another car?! 

But then I got to thinking… perhaps the other car REALLY didn’t even see me! I doubt anyone would believe me, but there have been some weird things happening with my car lately, all of three different people reporting it ‘invisible’, or ‘shielded’ from view within the three weeks prior to this fourth encounter. My car has even weirdly been prophesied over as being ‘supernaturally protected for safety’, befitting to me, as I sometimes drive with my head in the clouds… unintentionally. However, I think I am going to stop praying for that invisibility shield over my car, apparently it’s not just the cops who can’t see it… cars in my lane, headed right for me, need to be able to see me. 

A couple of years ago, a friend told me how she prays her car ‘invisible’ to the enemy and to cops who just want to profile her. I thought her a bit spiritually eccentric at the time, but as I have gotten to know her, she does have some pretty ‘Kingdom Supernatural’ stuff happen to her and around her; and the more I get to know the realms of the Kingdom, the more I have seen them manifest in some pretty weird and unbelievable ways. So, I am asking myself if it really is possible that now I have had perhaps four people all within a span of a few weeks, act as if they could not even ‘see’ my car.  And when one of them finally did see it, saw a ‘shield’ in the spirit over it. Hmm… things to ponder.

My new prayer: Lord, hide my car in the shadow of your wing. Make it supernaturally impervious to all danger, targeting, and visible as needed. Amen.

Come Boldly to the Throne

“The Holy Spirit is IN me, but He is UPON me for others!” —Todd White.

Hebrews 4:1616Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

3.5 days of intense healing & prophetic training. I personally witnessed or experienced over a dozen miracles and heard testimonies of so many more. Interestingly, some of the clearest words of knowledge the Holy Spirit gave me were for those around me up front in worship, more than even out on the street during “Love in Action” breakouts.

One woman next to me in worship told me she had thoughts of self harm and suicide just the day before and begged God to give her a sign that He cared about her abusive marriage. Then In worship God whispered to me: “Tell her to stop cutting.” It was that specific and moments later she touched my own cutting scars with wonder after I shared with her all that God shared with me about her. Many people had their scars and track marks healed by the power of the Holy Spirit all around me, but when I went forward for this miracle a year ago, Jesus whispered to me: “I kept my scars for others’ unbelief, I’d like you to keep yours also since they no longer carry shame for you.” Wow!!!!

One story I want to share is a Word He gave me that He later told me was for ALL His adopted Daughters.

In worship, a woman dropped to her knees next to and in front of me to my right. After a few moments, I heard Abba say: “Tell her to stand up.” That’s all I got at first. I hesitated for another moment and then obeyed. As I knelt down beside her and put my hand on her shoulder, leaning forward to whisper in her ear, I was transported (in my mind’s eye) into the throne room of Heaven. I saw her on her knees before the King, weeping and looking spent. I hear, see and tell her:

Unlike in Esther’s time, My scepter is always lowered to you. You can come in at any time. But you need to stand up. Rise my daughter. You are royalty. You are Mine. And when you stand, the enemy is under your feet. Come boldly to My throne. You are robed in Righteousness; and like Esther was anointed and bathed and prepared for her king, so you are anointed, perfumed, and bathed in the Blood of the Lamb for your King. Arise my daughter, and come boldly in, and I will help you in all I have prepared in advance for you to do!”

She turned to me, both of us still kneeling, and she gripped my neck tightly. She sobbed: “right before you came over, I was telling God that I was not worth the price he paid with his Son Jesus. I didn’t deserve to enter into his presence! And just then you came over and told me the opposite!” I just hugged her for a few minutes and then went back to worshiping my good good Father.

I peeked, and saw her rising, standing, all the way up, straight and tall and arms lifting, a radiant smile washing over her. Her countenance was so changed the rest of the day, and I was just as blessed and wrecked by her encounter with YHWH as she was. I LOVE ministering to others. It is sooo blessed to give from the unlimited storehouses of our inheritance in Christ! We have to be able to hear God for ourselves so we can hear Him for others. We have to spend a lot of time in the throne room so we can help lead others to Him. He is worthy of it all!

Demystifying the Eyes of Your Heart

Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow

The Eyes of Your Heart

 

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the riches of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe!” Ephesians 1:18-21

 

The purpose of seeing in the spirit, seeing with the eyes of our heart, or spirit, and having the eyes of our heart enlightened is mostly found in this great verse. The purposes I have found in Scripture and the fruit of my experiences are:

 

  • So that we know the hope of His calling on our life.
  • The riches of His calling: on our life, unto Salvation, and unto the good works He has prepared for us in advance to do.
  • That we don’t have to wait until death to see the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.
  • And so that we may see the greatness of His Power toward us who believe.
  • That we may see that greater is He who is with us, than he who is in the world.
  • To see how much the enemy is outnumbered (2 Kings 6:17)
  • To see and expose the fiery darts and schemes of the enemy.
  • To grow our faith.
  • To see what we are to pray over people
  • To give them messages from the Father about how He sees them.
  • To equip and encourage the Saints.
  • To see what God sees
  • To decree His will on the earth
  • To bind and loose
  • To avoid deceptions
  • To grow in discernment
  • To heal, and set captives free
  • To partner with the plans and blueprints of God
  • To see how high and wide and wonderfully He thinks
  • To expose the plans of the enemy
  • To see and understand how much He loves us and knows us
  • To increase intimacy with the Father
  • To discern good and evil

 

2 Kings 6:16-17 Clearly shows that not all spiritual sight is from the enemy. “’Don’t be afraid’, the prohet answered. ‘Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ And Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.’ The Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

 

Oh how I love this verse. My eyes were once opened to see an epic battle in the spirit, and as I saw my friend in the spirit, she was wielding a sword with her amputated arm [in the natural she is missing an arm, but her spirit man did not seem to notice], and dressed in full battle gear. Put on the full armor of God! For we do not fight against flesh and blood! There is a real enemy, and your spirit never sleeps but is right now, currently, in a battle you cannot yet see. Fight the good fight. And pray that the Lord opens the eyes of your heart that you may see and believe that He is the author and finisher of our faith.

 

Spiritual Encounters in the Bible

 

It is not always clear whether people were seeing things in the ‘natural’ or ‘in the spirit’, in the body, or out of the body, but it is for sure that most of the people in the Bible would be on Schizophrenic meds for all the encounters we would dub hallucinations today. . We are drugging our Seers at an alarming rate, when we really need to turn back to God’s psychiatry and not the witchcraft of Pharmakeia. Sorry, but God’s opinions and mine are usually not popular. Please spend some time looking up these verses, asking God to speak to you about how spiritual sight differs from third eye sight. How do these stories make you feel? How do the things of God differ from the things of the world or the enlightenment the enemy promises? Does it bring separation from God and shame, like the encounter in the Garden of Eden, or does it make you hunger and thirst for His Righteousness, so that all these things can be added unto you?

 

Using the eyes of our heart, God speaks to us through Dreams, Visions, Trances and many more ways. I do not dream nearly as much, but I have multiple kinds of waking visions, and have had several trances, some more intense than others. Some people primarily dream. When I do dream, I can often tell the different between a prophetic dream and just a dream originating from me, my mind, or my imagination. According to James Goll in his book, The Seer, he does well to remind us that the goal of any encounter is to enhance our love for Jesus and further our understanding of God’s purposes and plans.

 

Study these verses:

Numbers 12:6-8

2 Kings 6:16-17

Joel 2:28

Genesis 15:12-17

Genesis 20

Genesis 31:24

The book of Daniel

Matthew 2:12

Matthew 27:19

 

These verses and many more in the Bible show that God speaks to the prophets, to unbelievers, to men, to women, both in the Old and New Testaments. Some of them see and hear in dreams, some in open visions, audible voices, or fell into a trances. God is the same yesterday today and forever and is no respecter of persons. He will use any imperfect person He chooses because that is all He has to work with. I am no different. In my past I was a liar, a thief, a fornicator, a drunkard, and a descendent from at least third generation Masonic cult members, and many more marks I am sure the enemy had on me during the decade I turned my back on God. But I was a sinner, and now I am an heir of Salvation. Praise God! He makes all things new and uses whom He chooses.

 

Activation:

“Open my eyes, Lord, so that I may see. Help me to increase in the gift of discernment and discerning spirits. Lead me to test everything. Help me to know whether something comes from the demonic realm, the soulish realm, or through the Holy Spirit and your Kingdom of Righteousness. Flan the flame of my desire for the Word, for Holiness, for purity, for letting no unclean thing enter my eyes, my thoughts, or my imagination. Let me cast down every vain imagination that sets itself against You.

Demystifying the Third Eye for Seers

Third Eye Sight vs the Eyes of Your Heart

(Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow)

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (NIV, emphasis mine)

The third eye is also called the mind’s eye, eye of time, or the inner eye. It is a mystical, esoteric ‘invisible’ eye which is said to provide vision, sight, and perception beyond ordinary sight. It is claimed that you can open your third eye by focusing on your third eye chakra, meditating, choosing the right surroundings, flooding it with light, emptying your mind or focusing only on a meditation object, picking a mantra like “um”, and repeating until you “see something”. A list of reputed benefits to opening the third eye that new agers tout include: psychic abilities, telepathy, vivid/lucid dreaming, more effective astral projection, better sleep quality, enhanced imagination, enabled aura viewing, seeing spiritual guides, seeing energy, and seeing with eyes closed.

 

Some people describe seeing a ‘tunnel-like portal or worm hole’ inside their head. It can also feel like opening the ‘eyes of your imagination’, but often more vivid. Seeing with the third eye is often described in similar or same terms as those of us who see in the spirit, including a screen in your mind, or a projector screen that displays images several inches or feet out in front of you. The biggest difference is not so much how the third eye works in comparison to the eyes of the heart (spirit or eyes of understanding) so much as what people tend to see. In my experience, the third eye is much more prone to being deceived. I will talk in the next chapter about when I saw demons disguised as angels and how once you see that, as clear as anything I have seen in the natural, you will be very cautious about everything mystical! Some of the things the third eye sees, according to those who have experienced it, include seeing speed of thought, colors that don’t exist in the natural realm, images of aliens, spirit guides, demons, ascended masters, the astral plane, silver chords, and geometric and mathematical patterns, and psychedelic shapes.

 

People describe a sort of x-ray vision at times, seeing into things like bodies, souls and objects. They can often see things from the past, see into the future, and even into other dimensions and universes. Images seen can be digital, in cartoon form, solid, opaque, or felt and not seen at all.

 

If you have tampered with the new age, or invoked the opening of your third eye, I recommend going through the activation prayer in this chapter.

 

The biggest problem with third eye sight is that people often use it as a psychic gift, become mediums, and converse with beings that do not have their highest good, or Salvation, in mind.

 

Leviticus 19:31 “Don’t turn to psychics or mediums to get help. That will make you unclean. I am the Lord your God.”

 

There are about twenty-two verses that address psychics, mediums, and the tricks of the enemy. Scripture is clear that psychics are evil and an abomination to the Lord. We, as Believers, are not to mess with horoscopes, tarot cards, palm readings, initiating contacting deceased loved ones, or intentionally opening the third eye. The third eye can be an access point for the enemy, a satanic portal, or an opening to the astral plane and demonic realms. I have personally witnessed in the spirit (and natural) that when a person is hypnotized with a light machine, placed on the forehead, it created a spiritual portal through which demonic entities could more easily enter the mind. Flooding the third eye with light is another way it is said to be activated. The sixth chakra and kundalini awakening are tied to the serpent, and we need to flee. Although many people think seeing in the spirit and activating your third eye are the same, they are not! I also do not agree with many Christian’s teaching on “how to purify and activate the third eye.” God has clearly shown me the Eyes of the Heart and the Eyes of our Spirit man are the same, but the third eye is the counterfeit, occult, and easily prone to deception and seeing what the enemy wants you to see. Beware. [Example: April 20, 2014: Evangelist John Ramirez with Shannon Davis of Omega Man Radio, “How to Purify and Activate your Third Eye.”]

 

For further proof this is sourced in the occult, may be a demonic portal, and should be renounced, the third eye is called the All Seeing Eye in Freemasonry, Shiva in Buddhism, the Eye of Clairvoyance in Hinduism, and the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Osirius in Egyptian mythology. People who use the third-eye-sight are also often called seers, which is why I am starting with this complicated topic to make a clear differentiation. God commanded His people to be separate from the Egyptians’ practices. We see in the Word what happened when Moses and the Egyptian sorcerers both turned their staffs into serpents. Today’s Christians would have called Moses new age and demonic, surely. His intimacy and obedience to God was the secret to his operating in the spirit, in signs, wonders and miracles, and it is our key also.

 

Part of how I know how I see in the spirit is not via third eye sight, as I have never had any experiences similar to my new age friends. They are very, very different, with few similarities. I have seen demons disguised as angels, and universes, and dimensions, and heavenly realms and places, but I have never seen spirit guides, or animal spirits, or the astral plane, or aliens. So, my other dilemma was that I never did anything to activate my spiritual sight. I had to figure it out with the Lord. He is the one who called me a Seer, and confirmed it (see preface), so I am going to go with what He says about me, not what men say. I started seeing in the spirit about the same time I was saved, around age three, and continued off and on my entire life. ALL if it was God-initiated. I do not see anything unless He shows it to me. For some people they can control their seeing in the spirit, they can look to see, or turn it off, it just does not work that way for me. I have asked to see something, and the Lord has shown it to me. Taking a stance that all spiritual sight is ‘of the devil’ or ‘none of it is’, is dangerous.

 

One time, the Lord used an amazing Christian Missionary Alliance pastor in my life to help me when I shared with him things I was seeing in the spirt. He was gracious and did not rebuke me or condemn me like others have, but he instead was used by God to deliver a timely and profound message in my life. He told me a story I had never heard before, although I have since then heard it many times. When the FBI want to spot counterfeit bills, they don’t go studying the counterfeit. They spend so much time handling real money, that when the counterfeit shows up, it is obvious. The next day another lady started to tell me this same story (confirmation). The Lord spoke to me and said, “Study me alone, I am the real thing”. Spend so much time in the Word, in the spirit, in prayer, in worship, in prayer, in fasting, in the Word, that the enemy just looks like plastic flowers when he shows up, and I am not talking about the ones that look real, I am talking about the cheap dollar store kind people put on tombstones. I will let the dead bury the dead, I am spending time with the Living God, who smells like flowers instead of Sulphur.

 

There is a saying circulating in charismatic church circles that we need to ‘redeem’ things for the Kingdom that the enemy has stolen, and that ‘God’s ability to protect us is greater than the enemy’s ability to deceive’. I both agree and strongly disagree with this statement. I think it is actually very dangerous doctrine, maybe even a doctrine of demons. We do NOT need to study the new age to understand God, or to redeem things that are lost. These attempts to redeem Yoga and things like Reiki are playing with abominations. We need to flee far from the enemy, and study only the original. YHWH, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God are perfectly capable of revealing what should be redeemed, and we need to spend so much time with them that the voice of the enemy or his liars is obvious. His tactics to deceive and thousands of years of practice often outperform our discernment, and we need to be continually plugged into the Source. Quit running to the new age to drag things out in an attempt to redeem them. Believers also need to ask the Lord directly if they are concerned with something spiritual that they think may be new age, it may instead be His original that the enemy has counterfeited. Remember, they often look the same. What source are you plugged into?

 

The bottom line for those who do not know Christ, is that accessing the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven is not permitted, including and especially inducing third eye sight.

 

Matthew 13:11: “To you is has been granted, to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them is has not been granted.”

 

In John 10:1, Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”

 

Activation:

 

“Abba Daddy, I come boldly to your throne in humble repentance. I confess that I have gone to look for the original among the counterfeit. I repent for being a thief and a robber and trying to gain access to mysteries in any other way than through Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I will only come to the Father through Him from now on. I turn and look only to you. I accept you Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. I only want to seek Your face, Your will; I only want to do what I see you do, see what you show me, and say the words you put in my mouth. I repent for seeking spiritual things among the new age. I repent for trying to open my third eye. As an act of my will I declare it closed in Jesus’ name, and seal it with salve, oil of Joy, and the Blood of the Lamb. Let me gaze on no unclean thing. Remove all scales, all veils, that hinder me from becoming like a little child and seeing the Kingdom. I ask Jesus to forgive my sins, all my iniquities; I receive His payment, His blood sacrifice on the cross. I denounce satan and all of his deceptive practices. I wash my eyes, all of them, body, soul and spirit, in the living water that proceeds from the throne of grace, and cover them with the Blood of the Lamb. Purify my eye gates, wash them clean. [You can even wash water over your eyes and forehead as a prophetic act] I ask that any deceivers be judged in your courts and sent where you will. Your will be done in me Lord, your Kingdom come! Send your guardian angels around me, around my heart, mind, soul, spirit. Lead me not into to temptation, deliver me from evil and deception. I repent, I confess, I turn, and I will clean my house [physical dwelling and body temple] of any ungodly thing, all idols, all gods, and replace in those rooms Your Word, your Spirit, ceaseless prayer, worship, and I will magnify Your name alone. I repent for seeking the signs and wonders and not the Giver of the signs. Forgive us for being a wicked generation and let us only seek You, intimacy with You, and obedience to You. In Jesus’ precious Name and Blood, Amen.”

Vision: Heaven’s Candy Store

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:1-3 NASB).

(Watercolor by Andy Sewell)

In the middle of a worship service at a Nancy Coen conference in December, 2017, part of the room fell away, and I felt Daddy reach down and take my hand, pulling me (my spirit?) up quickly. I had the sensation of floating into a room without walls, but only saw huge, like 20 foot tall, old-fashioned gumball machines lined up in front of me. Still holding my hand, (I seemed to be about the age of 8 all of a sudden), I heard the Father say, “You feel so blessed by these people, and so happy to be here, and I know you want to give them something in return, so pick one.” I looked at the choices, and had no clue what to pick! “What should I pick, Daddy?” I could not see His face, shrouded in light, but he leaned over to whisper in my ear conspiringly: “How about the ‘goody-goody gumdrops’?”

At this, I laughed out loud, and even heard myself laugh in the worship room simultaneously. It was a tender, sweet, inside joke. My earthly Dad says this occasionally, and he got it from his father, who used to say, “oh Goody Goody Gumdrops!” while taking me to the zoo, or Children’s Museum of Indianapolis as a child. It always made me laugh. God’s voice was just so playful and tender when He suggested it, and I knew the choice was still mine to make. “The gumdrops it is”, I replied, and there appeared a gold coin in my dress pocket: reading on one side: “Free”, and on the other side, “Paid”. I knew everything in this store was part of my inheritance, cause Jesus’ blood had already paid the price. I took the coin, put it in the machine, turned the knob, and gumdrops starting raining on everyone in the room in the Spirit! They were large, oversized, and drenched each person in sweet swirling rainbow colors. The sugar on them sparkled like diamonds as they absorbed into everyone, smiles erupting all around. I did not know what it all meant, but it was a lovely, sweet, and an intimate moment with my King. He loves to give good gifts to His children.

The next day, after the last session, I was alone for a few minutes in my mountain cabin bunk-room. “So, how do you feel about this weekend, Papa asked?” Without thinking, I blurted out: “I loved it! I feel like a kid in a candy store!” Realizing what I had just ‘accidentally’ said, we both laughed, remembering the experience He had given me the day before based on feelings I did not realize I even had yet! My biggest reason for feeling so delighted at the conference was because the whole weekend was spent around people like me: people whom it had taken me my whole life to meet: people who hear from God regularly, like a close friend, or people who have dreams or visions they know are from the Lord, or have been taken in the Spirit by the Lord, or who regularly spend time in His Presence in Heaven as if that is just a normal every-day occurence. It should be. They are a People who walk in the Gifts of the Spirit, the Power and Might and Counsel of the Godly, who long for relationship above all else.

I am awed at Nancy Coen’s decades of walking in the supernatural, faith-filled obedience to the Savior she loves so much. Like I am just beginning to be, she has been ridiculed, shunned and labeled a heretic by people who do not understand her unique walk with the Lord. Let us be sweet, like she is, to those who persecute us for His name’s sake, especially when they are our dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

That weekend, I had at least a dozen experiences of God/Jesus/Holy Spirit talking to me about things, showing me things, explaining things even while I was taking notes, and four open visions at the conference. It was quite amazing! But the candy store with Daddy is one of my faves. I love how Abba Daddy is so fun, humorous, intimate and personal with His children, yet so Holy, awe-inspiring and worthy of our Love and Praise. One minute He can be a Dad, the next a stern Father, then a Husband, Friend, and Righteous Judge. He is my Creator, Inventor, my All in All.

I still don’t have all the answers as to why gumdrops fell on people in the Spirit, or what that gift meant, but I am sure He will tell me in due time. Other than the candy watercolor picture above by Andy Sewell, which I do not yet know the story behind, I do not know if others have had any encounters with a similar vision. If you have, please share!

Get to know Him, He so wants to be close to you, and walk with you, and talk with you, even though He already knows everything about you!

“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” Psalm 34:8 (NLT)

Demystifying Gemstones & Crystals Biblically

“For Wisdom is better than jewels; And all desirable things cannot compare with her.” —  Proverbs 8:11

Lord, give us wisdom on this topic, give us discernment. Help us to honor you in all our ways, help us to seek after Your mysteries in Your way, not our own, and touch not any unclean thing. Amen.

I highly recommend reading Part i blog first to not take this article out of context and get some helpful background on how sound/prayer is applied to objects Biblically and scientifically. These are some serious subjects to delve into in just a few blog posts, so please don’t label me a heretic for attempting to shed some Biblical and theoretical light on this subject I get asked about a lot.

Do you ever see Christians wearing Gemstones and Crystals like New Agers do? No? Sometimes? Not really? Why not? Have you ever felt drawn to a stone, or repelled by it? Do you know why? Did you know that the High Priest in the Old Testament was literally adorned with them by the order and design of God Himself? Did you know that the Bible has over 38 verses about them? And Heaven is built with them? And God made them? Then why in the world do New Agers glom onto them? Just a few of the questions I mull over in my head, as my work takes me into all the world, especially around alternative healers who wear crystals. Some I am actually pulled towards, and some repelled by like a backwards magnet! I seek to touch on this topic here, but I am just exploring the surface, and am asking the Lord to reveal the answers, so please do the same if there is anything in this article you disagree with; I am not claiming this as gospel truth or pertinent to Salvation. I am just forever curious, and love to delve into topics others won’t touch, with aid of the Holy Spirit (and some of my own conjectures).

There are even people who claim to have had Gemstones appear in thin air and land all over their houses or churches! I know a few of these people personally. Wow, if this is genuinely from Him, what a mighty God we serve! Why would He do that? If authentic, I think it is because He is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider, and He loves to give good gifts to His kids.

When I was a child, I seemed to be so drawn to rocks; I would suck on them as a toddler, collect them, notice them as jewelry, and even had a beautiful natural rock crystal formation that looked just like a unicorn (unicorns are talked about in both the Bible and rumored to be mentioned in the satanic bible also, but I am not going to go digging there for proof!), with a little crystal horn and all! Then, in the 80’s the Assembly of God church we attended was preaching on cleansing homes of anything even remotely New Age or from the “Age of Aquarius”. Dutifully, my parents got rid of their old records, smashing them in the living room, throwing out their Santa-Clauses and Mrs. Santa too. Then my collection: the cabbage patch doll, the unicorn crystal, rock collection and every other unicorn they could find, pajamas stuffed animals and all! This was very traumatic to me as a child, but I in turn did not allow any of these things into my home until a few of them more recently.

SO what is UP with gemstones and Crystals? Crystals AMPLIFY power and sound and act as a recorder, conductor and megaphone!

If you were to hold a tuning fork up to your ear and strike it, you could hear the sound. By resting the tuning fork ON a crystal and striking it, the sound is turned UP! I have actually seen and heard this demonstrated.

Crystals in computer and TV displays. 

Some phonographs use quartz crystals to convert vibrations of the stylus (needle) into electric impulses. For electronic use, a quartz crystal must be flawless. Most of the crystals now used in electronics are synthetic. Rock crystal is used to make lenses and prisms for optical instruments.

The way a quartz crystal benefits a circuit is that mechanically the crystal acts much like a tuning fork, with a natural resonant frequency, and the piezoelectric property allows that to be coupled into an electronic circuit.

Crystals can relay information physically on a Liquid Crystal Display monitor, like an eReader, TV, or computer monitor.  This is what LCD stands for. So how does this have a spiritual application, or even should it?

I do not study the counterfeit, and won’t even go research it, as I do not want to open myself up to it, but there is information that I glean just from certain friends or reading testimonies of people who have been set free from occult practices, which I find the best way to learn. I find a certain amount of information helpful in leading people to the Truth from the counterfeit power of the New Age.

The role of crystals in electronics is well known and Quartz crystals are used to control the frequencies of oscillators, and as circuit elements. Since crystals are good for transmitting electronic frequencies, it may be that occultists assume that they must also be good for transmitting psychic frequencies, vibrations and healing power. The New Age now has incredible body of (likely) folk lore regarding the supposed healing and energizing powers of crystals, even attributing them to clearing and healing the “chakra energy centers”.

But I feel it goes much deeper than that, both for good and evil!

In a good article by the Christian Research Institute, (CRI) (one I both agree and disagree with), they say:  “Though we do believe in demonic energy that can work through occult practices, we see no reasonable basis to hold that crystals have inherent properties that make them especially good transmitters of demonic power.”

I disagree with this quote, based on scientific research and the occultic use of crystals and gemstones, and testimonies of those set free from the New Age, I believe they can “house” and “amplify” demons and their supposed power.

Here is an excerpt from a very good book, Betrayed by Her Guardian Angel (pg 189) that gives unique insight from someone who was set free from the occult regarding crystals she was given for “psychic energy protection”.

“Hold this stone, and tell me what you feel,” Rhonda said.

Eve took the purple stone that was offered, and closed her eyes to shut out distractions. In the hand holding the stone, she felt a slight tingling sensation. “I’m not sure what I’m crystalsfeeling,” she said. “It feels like a faint vibration.”

“That’s the stone’s natural energy,” Rhonda answered. “It’s good that you can feel it. That tells me you’re very sensitive. Now give me the stone. Stand facing me, and watch.”

While Eve watched and listened, Rhonda did a ritual of sorts, calling the energy of the Spirit of the East into the stone. “In the East, the sun rises,” Rhonda intoned. “It is the direction of renewal and rebirth. The Spirit of the East draws his energy from fire. I call upon the Spirit of the East to infuse this stone with the energy of fire…”

“Now hold the stone and tell me what you feel,” she said.

Eve took the stone and closed her hand over it as before, then closed her eyes to concentrate on what she was feeling. The “slight vibration” had increased a hundred fold. “That’s amazing!” she cried. “It feels like the stone has electricity running through it!”

The author also talks in the book about other spirits being called into stones, using amethysts to “establish energy protection pyramids”, feeling them tingle, vibrate and cause electricity to run up the arm, making it almost go numb, “warming sensations”, and “cobweb sensations of negative energy”. None of this seems like a harmless piece of rock, but sounds like a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall by rejecting the cornerstone, which is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:8 for context).

Then why did God make them?

(more revelation on this coming later, based on a glimpse the Lord gave me that I am still seeking confirmation on and permission and timing to release).

Now, what about those stones on the High Priest’s garments? Biblically, this is reflected in the vest worn by the High Priest in the Hebrew religion. According to best translations, the author of Exodus 39 states that sardius, topaz, carbuncle, emerald, sapphire, diamond, jacinth, agate, and amethyst were all embedded into this vest. The High Priest Aaron would use this chestpiece (called an ephrod) when approaching the physical manifestation of God’s glory on Earth – to offer people’s prayers to God in the Holy of Holies, beyond the veil. What physical and spiritual properties were imbued in these crystals and rocks, if any? This vest carried spirtual symbolism, was used for Divine guidance, (Ummin and Thummim), and possibly even as a bridge between Heaven and earth realms in meeting God beyond the veil (more on that later).

The gemstones listed as part of the priest’s breastplate are similar (or same?) to the 12 stones that the Bible describes in the Book of Revelation as comprising the 12 gates to the wall of the holy city that God will create at the end of the world, when God makes a “new heaven” and a “new earth.” And, because of the translation issues of precisely identifying the exact breastplate stones, the list of stones may be entirely the same.

Different Bible scholars have speculated, and ultimately, it’s not that important, because they have been replaced by a Solid Rock on Whom we stand: Jesus. (3)”  

Jesus is our living Stone, and we, in Christ, are also living stones! (1 Peter 2:4-8) We, as extensions of the apostles to go into all the world, are the rock upon which Jesus has built His church. We are the temple of the Most High God, his dwelling place. We do not want to be, or pay tribute to, the dwelling place of demons!

“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

SO, What NOT to do with Crystals, Rocks and Gemstones: 

DO not treat them as good luck charms, omens, a talisman, or ascribe to them power, honor, healing properties, “fortune cookie” meanings, or “energies”. God is our healer, period.

DO not carve or buy a graven idol image made of rock, stone, crystal, wood, glass, ect. This includes totem souvenirs from Africa, Alsaka or Hawaii!  (The unicorn-shaped crystal, although naturally formed, may have been considered a graven image, by the Lord, I do not know! If in doubt, don’t, just don’t!).  Graven idols and idol worship (even in yoga) is serious business to the Lord and should be given a complete ‘hands off’ approach!

“You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.” Exodus 20: 3-5

So what can we do with gemstones, crystals, and rocks?

Remember to never take my word for anything, but go directly to God and to the Word first and foremost!

One option is to just leave them alone if you have any fear, discernment, or reticence about what is good and right and what is not. One person may have permission from God to wear a certain pendent, and the next may not! There should not be any fear or condemnation around them, however, just obedience.

Worship the Creator, not the creation. Glorify God that He is creative, loves beauty, and made them. Thank Him for them as a gift from above, and recognize that they are symbolic in Heaven and on earth as adornments in crowns, rewards, used on priestly garments, and can be a symbol of marriage covenant on earth. But recognize that it is the fruits of the spirit which are the real gems in the Kingdom, and gold is merely paver stones. We are to cast our crowns before Him and trade everything for intimacy and relationship with Him!

According to CRI, “Demonic energy can work through people’s belief in magical objects.” So do not put any faith in them! Trust in God alone.

Want to buy crystals, precious stone jewelry, or keep ones you may have? I would just burn any that have been used in anything occult-like. Did they just come straight from the rock shop but could have been cursed? Cleanse them from any sin or power that may be attached, covering them in the Blood of Jesus, dedicate them to the Lord, thanking Him for His creation, and then anoint them for His purposes and Glory. Let them serve as a reminder to ascribe all Glory to His name. The power of the Holy Spirit does not need any amplification from a crystal, like the enemy tries. God has given me peace about cleansing and dedicating certain things, like my used wedding ring, and keeping them. Ask Him about any items in question. Anoint the object with oil (see part i) and pray over it:

“Lord, we come boldly into your courts with Praise and petition the Throne of Grace.  Lord forgive us for touching any unclean thing, and we renounce in the name of Jesus, any involvement with the occult, or idolatry, or witchcraft, or the New Age. I declare that this object spiritually transitioned into your secret place and now abides under your shadow. I repent on behalf of every sin committed with this object (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). I plead the blood of Jesus over this (jewelry, rock, crystal, ect) and command in the name of Jesus any attachments to it to leave and go. I now speak to every spirit that has taken up habitation in this dwelling place and I take authority over you according to my authority in Jesus Christ. I cast you out, and command you to go to where the Lord Jesus sends you. We anoint this object in the name of the Lord, by faith, and consecrate it to you, inscribing on it the names of your people, your dwelling place. May it serve as a symbol that we are living stones, and we give all honor, and praise, and glory, to the One who made it. Thank you for it’s beauty, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”

I hope this sheds some light on how Christians should not be messing around with stones as omens or good luck charms, healing cards regarding stones, giving them credit for healing powers, or energies, chakra alignment, or especially not invoking spirits into them! Just the other day, a Christian business coach was giving out stones with healing property cards, and I just shake my head. “Forgive us Lord, for we often know not what we do.” Hopefully now you do know, and will not be afraid, but be shrewd, innocent, and discerning! You are a Daughter/Son of the King of the Universe, and heirs with Christ, so take authority and go forth!

Does Reiki have Side Effects? (A Seer shares what she saw)

In an instant, the Holy Spirit healed both my knees!

Laid up in a hotel room on a business trip, legs stretched out in front of me, I had worn out my two injured knees (one damaged in a bad ice-fall and the other hyperextended on a trampoline) walking the hills of San Fransisco the two days’ prior. I have been familiar with lots of energy-type healing, including reiki, in researching modalities for my alternative health book, Med Free Bipolar, but I had never experienced God’s healing touch until this moment. It was like every healing story in the New Testament came alive in my hotel room. It was like I was blind and now I saw!

Watching some Todd White street healing videos, he prayed for some guys’ knee on the street. SO weird, but cool I thought! Then, fire (hot, but not painful) and tingling, came over both my knees at once in a very distinct sensation, and both my knees were healed, instantly, while watching some dude pray for someone else’s knee! The room filled with peace and joy in that moment, like a sliver of Heaven had opened up. I got up, gingerly squatted down without pain, and then looked like a Russian Cossack dancer squatting all over the hotel room testing out my new knees and whooping! No one but the Holy Spirit could have touched my knees to heal them like that! That was in April 2017, and they are still very much healed!

In my book, I try to take a more diplomatic, journalistic (meaning non-biased) approach to talking about reiki, but in my blog, let me make myself very clear: I do NOT like Reiki, and think it comes with a litany of spiritual side effects that Believer’s and non-Beleiver’s should steer very clear from. Comparing that healing to my experiences with reiki are night and day. I can tell when people are using reiki energy on me, I don’t exactly know how to describe it, but I will try. Typically, when someone is using reiki, they will ask permission to touch you, and then may cradle your neck in their hands. When this has happened (when I have unwittingly given permission in a massage, or cranial sacral therapy, or a ‘chiropractic warm-up massage’, I can ‘see’ (as in seeing in the Spirit), a cord being set up, almost like an umbilical cord, burrowing it’s way to attach, and feel tingling or buzzing at the base of my head where I can ‘see’ the cord. Once, after this happened, I took my fingers and symbolically cut it off, rebuking it in the name of Jesus. The tingling and burrowing sensation stopped. Some people may call this a ley-line. I do not have all the answers about these, but I have seen them many times. How do I SEE? I am a biblical SEER, someone who God has opened the Spirit eyes of my heart (as opposed to third-eye soul sight). I also have a very strong Gift of Discerning Spirits, but I am not immune to deception myself, no one is.  

Another time I experienced, reiki was incorporated into the session by a cranial sacral therapist, whose intentions were very good, but something came into me, shrouded my brain, and even caused me to physically pass out behind the wheel of my car and hit the person in front of me! I was actually consciously resisting what felt like a veil being lowered inside my brain, right before I lost consciousness! (I know, I am just soooo weird!) This was within just a couple hours of the session, but I knew it was related to my first session with her. From then on, my judgement was so shrouded for the next several months that I kept going back to her like I was addicted, even when my husband insisted for me to have nothing to do with her! I usually trust his judgement, but I became very belligerent and even had some personality changes until I had to undergo a full-on deliverance session with Jesus (that story in my book or other blogs!) So what is Reiki, and how could this happen?

Reiki – According to the dictionary, reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch (or even long-distance), to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.” Reiki incorporates the use of “spirit guides” and “beings of light” to channel this energy through the practitioner into the client.

According to proponents of Reiki, “In treating yourself and others: ‘Reiki psychic surgery can be especially helpful…there are higher sources of help you can call on. Angels, beings of light and Reiki spirit guides as well as your own enlightened self are available to help you. They can help you develop your Reiki practice by directing clients to you and assisting with treatments. They can be of great benefit, but you must have a strong spiritual intention for your work if you are to recruit their aid.'” (www.reiki.org)

Now reiki is “coming standard” as training in most massage schools, and a lot of people who practice massage are also using energy work on you oftentimes without you knowing it. After even being lied to a couple of times, I now have to ask “Oh, do you do Reiki?” in a hopeful tone of voice, or I may just get lied to, only to see/feel it being done to me later (most people can’t feel this like I can).

The history of reiki comes from Buddhist texts, among others, through Dr. Mikao Usui.  He was an adopted missionary kid, who was fascinated by Jesus’ power to perform miracles, but instead of seeking the Holy Spirit, he chased after eastern mystic texts, and now Reiki uses occultic symbols, atunements, and invocations of spirit guides.

I have had several experiences with Reiki and not a one of them has been pleasant, but I do know people who have had beautiful and peaceful experiences, although the enemy has quite the false serenity that is very powerful.

Is there such a thing as Christian Reiki? No. I do not believe so, and nor do I believe it should be “redeemed” for the Kingdom. We already have access to the power of the Holy Spirit and partnering with Heaven’s angels who harken to the Word of the Lord. We do not need to invoke other guides, ascended masters, astral beings, higher selfs, or attempt to “redeem reiki”.

Think these are benevolent guides, “of the light”, so they say? I encourage you to read the true story: Betrayed by Her Guardian Angel by Stacie Spielmanhere is a little excerpt: “In a state of shock, Eve mouthed Saul’s name, dreading to hear his answer. “Saul?” she said in a quivery voice, “Are you a dark one too?”

“I’m afraid so,” Saul murmured. His voice in Eve’s mind was soft – not loud and insulting as Gideon’s had been. Through her mind’s eye, Eve could see his face with its brown skin and soulful brown eyes. In her mind, he looked the same as before – distinguished yet playful; wise; handsome, with his closely cropped crown of white hair; and oh so very loving. Yet he had just admitted to being a demon! “I wish I could say I weren’t. But I am.”

 I have read many stories like this, stories of ‘angels’ turning dark on them, stories of people having out of body experiences during reiki sessions, sensations of being abducted, and more! I have even seen demons disguised as angels myself (quite the story)!

I do not believe all energy work is bad, however, and things like the BEMER, Riffe machines, sound & frequency devices (like the Qwest and Asyra), tuning forks, and more can have benefits at the cellular level. YHWH spoke us into existence, and science has confirmed that all matter is made up of sound and frequency, I just don’t want a stranger’s spirit guide’s involved in channeling those energies without informed consent.

Want more? Check out this cool video of a Reiki Master turned Street Healer!  

Want a reiki-free massage therapist? I know several who opted out of the reiki classes in massage school and were still allowed to graduate, so just ask if you do not want this done to you. But be careful, some of them are very sneaky as I have found out the hard way! Remember, our job is to be discerning, not judging, and if you are someone who practices Reiki, ask the Lord to show you the truth, and the truth will set you free! The Holy Spirit’s healing is complete and does not come with a hidden agenda or price to pay later. Blessings!

Be Salt & Light!
