Shifting: uncomfortable Process, great Fruit


For most of us, shifting is a PROCESS, not always easy, but letting God grow-us-up bears great fruit.

We are schooled by our society, and sometimes by our religion that change comes fast and easy.
And it does and it can - on the spiritual level.
But bringing our shifted spiritual experience into the body, into the world - this is a whole different thing - something that takes TIME and SPACE.

Healing and spiritual transformation is a Process for most folks, not a one-time event.
This is something You must do, spiritually: No one can do it for you!
AND, there is much help available, when you choose to accept it.

It is not always easy, it is not always fun.
But, when you make these changes, these spiritual choices:
your life and your world turns around - you live in a different reality!

Life without all the Darkness weighing upon us is a revelation, a revolution, a miracle, a blessing!
We open to an entirely new and lighter way of being.
We can be Free; filled with Love, Ease & Grace; and Move Forward in Life, Abundantly!

We can Choose to grow into our Maturity

We can keep going the way we are going, doing what we are doing, getting what we are getting:
or we can shift.
We can learn to CHOOSE spiritually: to Live, to Be, to Act from a spiritual perspective! 
We can allow God to grow-us-up into our MATURITY in Christ.

We are called to spiritually Choose - to exercise our free-will, in our own space, our own life:
- Have Dominion: exercise the responsibility God gave us in our own lives.
- Reclaim the Authority God gave us in our own space, and in our world.

Jesus did this; he showed us the Way in this; and he calls us to Follow Him!
As we grow up in Christ, we acknowledge our spiritual center, our spiritual calling.
We also find that  spiritual warfare that is real: within us and in the world.

We can Choose to let God grow-us-up, to become Spiritual Adults, as we do this, we:
  • We face our own evil, our own shadow, our own dark side... and we let God bring Light.
  • We let go of negative influences upon us; move out the Darkness, allow more Light.
  • We start to powerfully, consciously BE and ACT in the world, as Disciples of Christ.
Letting-go of negative influences, from within us and from outside of us,
can mean letting go of energies, habits, lies, programming, etc.  that is not who we are in God.
It can also mean letting go of unclean spirits: 'spiritual personalities' that are not-in-alignment-with-God.

But that is not enough, if one is to stay FREE, and take up the reins of our lives as spiritual adults.
We must let God HEAL us.
We have to spiritually choose to close the spiritual 'doors' through which these energies enter:
  • letting go of influences, habits, beliefs, emotions that get in the way of our authority in our own space;
  • taking responsibility for our own space, our own lives.

This is all well and good - but how do we shift, what is the process? (See more if you wish)

Where does Darkness tend to enter?


Being out-of-alignment with God, entertaining evil; Darkness enters our lives through our spiritual choice.
We may or may not be conscious about it, but these are the usual choices of pathways into Darkness:
  1. A spiritual choice within us: turning-away from Light, into Darkness, this is Sin;
  2. Spiritual attacks from outside us: encouraging us to open more to the Darkness, making room for the Adversary.
Again, 2 main issues when we are out-of-alignment with God:

1) INSIDE: our own turning away from God, from our unique Way in God, from Life, from Light.
This turning-away spiritually is BEING in Sin, in Darkness.
What we DO in that darkness, when out of alignment with God, are sins: we miss the mark.

2) From OUTSIDE: deleterious effects are visited UPON us, upon our physical and spiritual experiences, and upon our choices.
These are the effect of the dark-side on us, when we come under the influence of unclean spirits, demons, powers, principalities...  we give up our free-will, we abdicate our God-given Authority over our own lives.

Unconsciously or Consciously, we open the door to the dark side, and we are overcome, undone.

-> WHY would we we open the door to the dark side?  see here for some reasons.

WHY would we we open the door to the dark side?


Unconsciously or Consciously, we open the door to the dark side, and we are overcome, undone.

WHY???

WHY WHY WHY would we we open the door to the dark side?

There are SO many reasons for this, but here are some popular ones:

- >  Because we want the fruit of this world more than we want the fruit of the Spirit.
We are willing to take the hand of a devil rather than the hand of the Almighty.

The famous 'deals with the devil' are about desiring the riches of this world, in an unbalanced way.  (Kind of like Jesus' third temptation)
But the people I work with, day-in and day-out, are mostly just trying to keep their 'head above water'.  (Kind of like Jesus' first and second temptations)
(see Jesus Temptations)


->  Because we have been through abuse, trauma, intense and challenging circumstances, and we say in our heart: Where is God?! HELP! In desperation, I will take any help I can get!!!

This could have happened LONG ago.  Lots of times this occurs in childhood when we are small and the 'giants' around us are sometimes (or often) unSAFE;  our world in unpredictable and out of our CONTROL.  Many people decide during childhood to accept help from the dark-side, and this stays with us until we un-earth it, and say good-bye to those energies and agreements.


->  Because life becomes too much for us!  When we get overwhelmed with life, fear, pain, responsibilities, the past, the future… most folks 'check-out', turn to addictions, compulsions, obsessions...

This is average human behavior, this is garden-variety: what else CAN we do when our load gets too great and we cannot go on, when we cannot BE with ourselves or with God, anymore?  There are other paths - but most of us don't KNOW that!
Meanwhile, in our desperation, when we turn to these addictions, we are turning even farther from BEing IN God.

.
When we turn to the dark-side, whatever our reasons,
the doors open farther to the unclean spirits - it becomes a vicious cycle.
A cycle which ends up in a Gordian knot: a mighty stuck-ness inside us, and a mighty mess in our lives.

God is still here - but our back is turned.

Spiritually, God gave us free-will;  Dominion/Authority: in our bodies, our lives, our world.
The less we are in charge, we enter a negative spiral: the less we are in-charge.
The more we are in charge, we enter a positive spiral: the more we are in-charge.

A central part of my ministry is to help folks close the 'doors' to the dark-side,
take back their free-will and their God-given Authority in their space, and in their lives
... and then turn the Titanic, turning their lives and their world, around.

We can Choose to change - to grow into our Maturity in Christ.  Read more Here.

When our eye is single, our body is full of Light



When we are in Alignment with God, spiritually focused, we are filled with God's Light.
The lamp of the body is the (spiritual) eye;
if therefore thine eye be single (whole, mature),
thy whole body will be light
 - Jesus, according to Matthew
That's so good, let's read a different perspective on what Jesus has to say on the subject:
No man, when he hath lighted a lamp, putteth it in a cellar, neither under the bushel,
but on the stand, that they which enter in may see the light.
The lamp of thy body is thine eye:
when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light;
but when it is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Look therefore whether the light that is in thee be not darkness.
If therefore thy whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light,
as when the lamp with its bright shining doth give thee light.
 - Jesus, according to Luke
Most folks don't really know what this verse means,
but this practice is central to Meditation with Jesus:
you can bring this way of BEING into fruition, if you choose to.

You can be more and more a lamp for God's Light:
comfortably, easily SHINING within yourself, and in your world!

Jesus Temptations, and ours

      1Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. 3And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.’”
      5Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple,
6and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written,
         ‘HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU’;
         and
         ‘ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP,
         SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.’”
7Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written, ‘YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.’”
      8Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’” 11Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.
