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).

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 it 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 who 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)

Raise your Vibrations to See in the Spirit! (Part ii on Frequency)

“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” — Revelation 4:1 (God speaking) 

Ever felt like God just seems so very far away? What if in a sense, He really is? Though He is Omnipresent, we are instructed to draw near to Him and He will draw near to us. Sin actually carries a lower frequency, and literally separates us from God. (Isaiah 59:2; Jeremiah 5:25) Sin also carries a stench (smell is a , and so do demons. Some people say they smell like crap! There is even a scientific theory of smell being linked to the vibrational frequency of the molecule in the infrared range.

In August, I had a vision where God was clearly telling me to “come up here”. I am SO NOT a Bible scholar (although through 6+ years of Missionettes and Awanas + 4 years of Southern Baptist college, I have hidden hundreds of verses in my heart, for which I am very thankful!). I had even forgot that “come up here” was an instruction God also gave John in Revelation! Reading it about a month after this vision I started crying, because God had been confirming things He taught me and showed me in a series of visions that lasted three days! I always seek confirmation and He is faithful to provide, even if not on my timing.

In my vision, people were lying down, on their backs, and the enemy was walking all over them! The enemy and his demons seemed to be elevated just above them. Many were obviously Believers, but the enemy still had easy access to them. I was seated above all this looking down. Then I saw myself reaching down and pulling people to a standing position, and then helping them up a steep embankment saying: “Come up Higher!” As they came up, the enemy grew smaller and smaller. I heard the Lord say: “Stand up in your Authority!” He kept repeating over and over: “come up here”, “come up here!” About 8 months after this vision, I heard Rick Joyner had a similar vision, but I am not really familiar with it or even with him. I also recently read in accounts of Maria Woodworth Etter’s life that the Lord was telling her to “build up higher” back in the late 1800’s! God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

One of the primary things He has been showing me is HOW to “come up here” and what happens when we do. It raises our frequency, and thus puts things that are at lower frequencies under our feet. For example, like I stated in the part one blog: a healthy body vibrates at 62-68 MHz. The Brain, when healthy, vibrates at 72-90 MHz; cancer vibrates at >42 MHz; A cold at 56 MHz. Death begins at 25 MHz! Emotions, Sin, Fear, Words, and even Thoughts carry frequency as well. Foods, essential oils and everything on earth has it’s own unique sound marker, including you. Wouldn’t you like cancer to be under your feet?! So, if earth is at a lower frequency, and God’s ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9), it makes sense that raising our vibration might get us ‘closer to God’, (in a relationship sense, not a Tower of Babel sense) and may even be key to help seeing in the Spirit (this is allowing God to open the eyes of our heart).  He says that when we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. (James 4:8). So, step one is to raise our natural frequency through better health and supplementation. Step Two: Raise our Spiritual frequency (Hint: It’s all about Relationship with God!)

Sin separates us from God, literally (Isaiah 59:2). And sin carries its own frequency, which is lower than anything in the heavenly realms. When Adam sinned, and “fell”, He may have actually fallen to a lower vibrational frequency plane (an image God gave me, not Scripture, just my personal revelation). So how do we more closely reflect the One we are to mirror His image? I hypothesize that there are many ways, but we are going to talk about some scripturally sound ways to raise your frequencies, aligning them more closely with the will of God. You want to ‘hang out’ with God, and see like He sees, and walk like He walks? Like Jesus did when He said “I only do what I SEE my Father doing”? You have to get on the same playing field/plane.

Nikola Tesla said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

So, you want to see in the Spirit? A thinly-veiled difference in vibrational frequency separates the realms, and if you want to “see”, you have to “come up here.” (Revelation 4:1)  If you are “sunk” in sin or depression, or have ‘mind blinds’ from the enemy, you may want to let God help you come up out of that.

Things that Raise your ‘Spiritual Vibration’:

  1. Repentance, ask for Forgiveness, Confession of Sins to God AND others, Cleaning out House (2 Kings 20:1) of all sin, idols, bad movies, games, violence, anger, things that poison your spiritual gateways, ect…
  2. Worship, Prayer , Reading the WORD (the Bible) aloud.
  3. Think on these things (Phillippians 4:8): God’s Shalom (John 14:27) (1000+ Hz), World’s Peace (600 Hz), Joy (Nehemiah 8:10) (540 Hz), Love (500 hz) ….NOT: sin (>200 Hz), pride (175 Hz), anger (150 Hz), grief (75 Hz), shame (20 Hz), Depression (50 Hz), Anxiety (100 Hz)
  4. Spending time in nature, sunshine, earthing
  5. Supplements, Minerals (272-480 Hz), Vitamins, Healthy Salt, Water (See part 1 blog)
  6. Dance, Sing, Breathe, Forgive others
  7. Hug someone
  8. Fear NOT!
  9. Laugh, Smile
  10. Be around animals, do things you love: baths, hot springs, paint, etc…
  11. Exercise (other than Yoga, which causes mind blinds in the soul)
  12. Eat LIVING foods & Herbs (15 MHz)
  13. Use Essential Oils (22-320 MHz)
  14. Help others, serve
  15. Wear color, surround yourself with things you love
  16. Clean Products in the Household, natural skin-care and beauty-care products

Is your frequency ‘off’? Did you know Depression has a frequency of 50 (Hz)?! This is far below a healthy state of 68 (Hz), and I love helping people bring their minds closer in alignment to the Mind of Christ. When we draw close, He draws closer! It is not always easy, but it is so worth it!

So, since there is a list of things that can raise your vibrations, I thought I would include a list of things that can lower your vibrations and distance your connection to God and to the things of heaven.

  1. Sin
  2. Busyness, stress
  3. Hard Alcohol
  4. Junk/Processed Food
  5. Toxic thinking
  6. Toxic relationships
  7. Toxic Environment
  8. Sugar
  9. Medications (blog on this soon, how it is sometimes Pharmakeia, or witchcraft)
  10. Radiation Exposure
  11. Consistent Heavy Metal Music
  12. Yelling/Arguing/Fighting (Supplementing with Lithium Orotate can help!)
  13. Holding onto the past, or grudges, or unforgiveness
  14. Being stuck in emotions such as: fear, anger, hate, resentment, guilt, shame.
  15. Sexual encounters outside of a covenant marriage

All of these things put you in ‘closer reach’ of the enemy. Imagine the enemy in a basement, you want to be in the “upper room” with Jesus! You want to put as much distance between you and him and his team as possible! Imagine you are tall in the Spirit, floating above the earth, with the Spirit of GOD inside of you! Now think of the enemy as a little gardner snake in the grass. How worried about that snake would you be? What if you were riding a lawn mower? Worried? Ride the Holy Spirit within you, and set your mind on things above, for the unseen is permanent, and the seen is temporary. Many of the above list of things are things Jesus talked to us about on earth: love, service to others, strength of joy, upper room fellowship. If your fear, stinking thinking, guilt and shame are making you accessible to the enemy, repent and turn from your wicked ways and lay it down at the cross, for His yoke is easy and his burden is LIGHT! Then, come upstairs, and hang out on a ‘higher plane’! Jesus is the door, the truth and the WAY (John 14:6), and no one comes to the Father but through Him. The door to Heaven is open NOW, and we can come boldly before the throne of Grace (Hebrews 4:16), but not unless or until you go through Jesus Christ. Ask Him in your heart today, and don’t try to climb in another way, which is what you are doing if you are messing with the New Age’s way to get enlightenment. (John 10: 1-14)

If this “Baptist Seer” can see in the Spirit, you can too! Ask Jesus to open the eyes of your heart, for He is the giver of gifts. But even if He doesn’t, continue to praise the King of kings and Lord of lords, for His plans for you are greater than anything we could think or imagine!

Be Salt & Light,

Mental Health

Mental Illness vs. Spiritual Experiences

Is it mental illness? Or is it something else? Could it be something Spiritual or Otherworldly? Are those voices coming from a malfunctioning Temporal Lobe (more in a future blog), which can cause heightened spiritual experiences, feelings of dejàvu, and even hallucinations, or could they actually be coming from something in the spiritual realm? These questions have plagued mankind for as long as the mind has existed. Many illnesses were contributed to spiritual causes once upon a time, but mental illness is the only one that seems to perpetuate this dual causation. I find myself defending a stance that modern psychiatry has long tried to stamp out with only science.

I personally feel it can be both spiritual and neurobiological, either, or neither. And I have experienced all three. I have lived normally (experiencing neither) most of my life, but have also had more than my fair share of psychosis (even catatonia) and have had many encounters with the spiritual realm that no one could ever convince me of being psychotic.

Most of these experiences were very different from each other, although I do think one of them was a combination of both. I will be talking about my journey as someone who has had a successful run of treating bipolar naturally for years (best-selling author of Med Free Bipolar, Amazon), but has also operated in the “seer” capacity of seeing beyond the Veil into the spiritual realm off and on since I was three. I am a follower of Christ, but have spent much time (as an Asian Studies minor in college and living in Japan) studying world religions and know more about most religious/spiritual beliefs than many of the people who claim them.

I also operate in a professional peer-to-peer setting as a Dr. Amen Brain Health Certified Coach, where science, research, proof and evidence reign in my day-to-day work, but where clients regularly are drawn to me to talk about all the spiritual and religious things they can’t explain to their psych doctor without fear of committal and extra medications. It’s a safe place where nurses share about the fading light and spirits they see leave people’s bodies at the hospital where they work, and “new agers” chat with me about astral travel and past lives at the same time they talk to me about their mood swings and anxiety. I even get to pray over some of them for healing if they ask me to, right before I share with them what has worked for me using scientifically-backed natural methods. The juxtaposition between the two should seem strange, but is just a part of my ‘normal’ day. God has given me more than one way to provide them with insight and answers.

But now I am meeting whole groups of people who operate in the supernatural without a diagnoses of mental illnesses. On the “I’m spiritual not religious” side, many of them talk of “astral travel”, meditation, seeing spirit guides and claim to be messengers of angels, as well as healers performing successful hands-on-healing techniques where I have seen results. Many in this group seek enlightenment and talk of hearing voices from the supernatural realms without seeming to care if people call them ‘crazy’.

On the “religious not spiritual” side of this, I have interviewed many people who operate in what is called the Gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthinans 12), or other religious experiences, like seeing into the spiritual realms, speaking in tongues (heavenly languages), discerning whether spirits are good or bad, and even the Christian version of astral projection, called “traveling in the spirit”, or “supernatural transportation” (2 Corinthians 12:1-5, Revelation 4:1-6, Ezekial 8). Many in this group are also performing successful healing miracles, seeing angels and demons, and seeing people delivered from mental illness for good. One of my favorite early “faith-healers” was Katheryn Kuhlman, who saw thousands of people healed in her meetings without even touching them (watch the old videos on YouTube).

I sometimes wonder what would happen if a psychiatrist could hear these two groups talk about spirit travel and angels without locking them up for good! There is already one in five people diagnosed with a mental illness! There is a debate beginning whether mental illness even exists, or if psychotic experiences are just a “shaman” or “seer” coming into their abilities. (Shamanistic view of mental health). I personally, however, have seen people develop their first psychotic episodes due to delving into spiritual practices such as reiki, yoga and meditation. (See the chapter in my Med Free Bipolar book titled: Mind, Body, Spirit)

So, how do you know whether what you are dealing with is mental illness, or something spiritual? Well, sometimes you just can’t. But there needs to be more discussion about both, and more dialogue about options that are out there for addressing the underlying neurobiological issues (see www.medfreebipolar.wordpress.com), as well as the spiritual solutions that exist. In this blog, I will be openly talking about all things mental health, as well as things that seem quite crazy, like exploring the word God laid on my heart recently: See-ER (Spelled SEER in a vision but pronounced to me in my heart as See-ER, one who sees.) As I study the differences between diagnosable “crazy” and “seeing” and “hearing” voices from God, my life weaves back and forth between the two like a braided cord my whole life. There are many stories I will tell that are clearly not “diagnosable”, or explainable by the world of psychiatry, which include many visions that later came true, as well as incidents that other people witnessed.

I believe God’s Psychiatry is the answer, both in the answers He has given us for Med Free mental health, as well as the spiritual answers. We are body, soul and spirit, and separating them and compartmentalizing them is part of why we have found ourselves in such a mental health mess.

It’s time to open our Hearts, Minds, and Spiritual Eyes to the only One who has all of the answers.
