The Secret to Your Healing Is In the Word

The Secret to Your Healing Is In the Word
Expert Author: Ann Stewart

"Attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh." (Prov. 4: 20-22)

The Bible is clear. These verses, and many others throughout the Word of God, promise that it is God's divine will to heal you. There are many, however, that will make a career out of disputing this. That is so sad because they are holding back God's greatest promise of miracles from themselves and many others. It's quite simply a sign of unbelief on their part. Many claim that they have prayed and prayed, but nothing happened. Have you been there? I know I have; many times before I discovered the secret.

The question is not whether it is God's Will to heal, but rather whether you really believe it. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. (Rom. 10: 17) That's in essence saying that, if you are not familiar with the whole Word of God, then it's hard to build up your faith.

Every believer has been given the measure of faith. (Rom. 12: 3) God did not say 'a' measure, suggesting that some have more than others. He tells us that we all have 'the' measure to live a full, abundant life! In fact, you only need faith the size of a grain of mustard seed to remove mountains of burdens from your life! (Mat. 17: 20)

Ask yourself the following questions: "Do I beg God for my needs only when I am in real trouble"? "Do I know God's Promises for my life? and Do I know how to pray effectively"?

These questions are crucial to having your needs met. The answers are all in the Word of God and they must be personally discerned. No, don't give up now! Don't tell yourself that it's too hard or too complicated! It's not! The gospel is very simple and easy to understand! It's all about coming to the Lord as a little child, climbing on your Daddy's knee and telling Him your needs. He already knows what you need before you ask Him! (Mat. 6: 8)

When you were a child, did your earthly father mean well and promise you all kinds of things? You know that he loved you, but yet you could not be sure that he would give you whatever you asked, right? If your father was generous with you, then how much more shall your Father in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Mat. 7: 11)

All you need to do is ask Him, seek and knock because:

"every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." (Mat. 7: 8)

Are there any conditions to receiving your requests? Yes; really only one, and that is to know the One whom you're asking! If your father was a stranger to you, you wouldn't ask him anything, would you? The Bible is Heavenly Father's loveletter written especially for you! Read a part of it every day and then meditate on it. The Father's heart will be laid bare before you through His Word. Only then can you truly understand the First Commandment:

"Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind and with all thy strength. (Mark. 12: 30)

The more you read about Him, the closer He draws to you and the better you get to know Him. Remember, he created Adam to have fellowship with Him! That's all He wants from you; to be able to walk and talk with you. He is your greatest friend and benefactor; you'll see! The more you trust Him for healing your headache and receive your healing, the more your faith will grow for healing of more serious illnesses and conditions!

Think of it this way: are you a social network chatter, keeping in touch daily with all your past and present friends? Millions of people are! How about chatting first and foremost with your only true friend! He is the only one:

"Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." (Ps. 103: 3-5)

See? It's not hard. The better you get to understand His Word, the more of it gets stored in your heart. The Word of God will instantly flow out, coupled with the faith it has produced, whenever you will need it most. That's when He will say to you:

"Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation." (Ps. 91: 14-16)

Do You Avoid Certain Feelings?

Do You Avoid Certain Feelings?
By Expert Author: Melisa Milonas

Do you avoid feeling sad, angry, or vulnerable? Some feelings can cause you to lose power and as a result you feel less confident. So you try to avoid that feeling so that you do not lose your power. Many people are mis-educated about feelings, they believe that what they feel defines them and they will be stuck with that feeling.

Emotions come and go, and they do not make up who you are. For example, many people avoid feeling angry because they think that means they are an angry person or they will stay angry if they accept that feeling. Anger will pass just like joy or stress does.

In my life, I have had to distinct experience of trying to avoid feelings of vulnerability, especially in romantic relationships. I would spend so much time trying to avoid feeling vulnerable in romantic relationships because I thought that meant I was weak. I was ruled by my fear of not wanting to seem weak and powerless.

Romantic relationship may not be the area where you avoid certain feelings, for you it may be relationships with your family or friends. We all lose power in one or more of our relationships. Usually there is a specific feeling we can not tolerate experiencing and as a result we avoid and suppress that feeling.

I always was ashamed that I felt vulnerable and even tried to keep how I felt a secret from other people. But in my work as a coach, I found I was not the only one who could not tolerate feeling vulnerable. Many of my clients had the same fear.

What I have seen in my own life is that, the more I avoided the feeling of vulnerability the more it showed up. It's like that saying "what you resist persists". In the past, the more I avoided feeling vulnerable and weak the more I felt vulnerable and weak. It was when I finally accepted how I felt, embraced the feelings, and stopped seeing that as a burden that they moved through me quickly.

Many people avoid what they feel because they are scared they will be overwhelmed by what they feel and will get stuck in that emotion. But the exact opposite happens, when you accept and embrace what you feel it does not have a grip on you and keep re-occurring in your life.

Now If I am sad, hurt, or angry I accept that is what I feel. In the past I would try to intellectualize what I was feeling and push down the actual feeling. Now I say to myself "bring it on" If I am angry then I let it out (usually on a pillow), if I am sad I don't even try to hold back the tears, I let the river run. If I am scared, I say "I am really scared". There is no pretending or denying what I feel.

When you accept and embrace your feelings, you feel a sense of genuine confidence and power about yourself. You also feel much more at ease expressing your feelings with others. What is even more remarkable is that you are able to distinguish that your feelings are separate from you and they are not always aligned with your true self.

Your assignment for this week: Pick one relationship or area of your life that you have a strong fear of experiencing a certain feeling? Focus on that feeling, do not hold back, and let it out. Whatever emotion you feel, sit with it. Avoid monitoring what you are thinking, feeling, or making it wrong. A very good way of releasing emotions is to exaggerate what you feel. So if you feel really sad, think of how a child would their express sadness, and act it out in a similar way. I know this sounds silly, but it works. Children move through feelings fast because they feel it, express it, and move on. Adults avoid, deny, and repress their feelings and they get stuck with it for years.

Living in the Moment

Living in the Moment
By Expert Author: Shann Vander Leek

I am a big advocate of learning how to live in the flow of the moment.

Through life experience, education and awareness, I have observed three kinds of people. Those who dwell in the past, those who thrive in the moment and those who prepare for the future.

Most of us hop around from one reality to the next, but overall we are creatures of habit and tend to spend most of our time in one form of reality or another.

Past Dwellers seem to be in some sort of feedback loop. Glory days, past failures, hurt, shame and youth. Some still looking for approval, others in many cases, are Survivors. A great deal of these folks wear their inner survivor like a badge of honor.

Honestly, just because a person may have some crappy ghosts in their past does not mean they need to continue living in survival mode.

When we realize that we are special, unique, and worthy of great accomplishments, we no longer need to reside in the back story. We can start experiencing today by letting go of any attachments to our past. Forgive, leave the burden behind, allow for positive change.

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. -Alexander Graham Bell

Present Dwellers seem to have things figured out. They are experiencing life as it is at this very moment. They understand that TODAY is the day that matters. They get that this is the day with the greatest potential for accomplishment.

No matter where our thoughts travel, time is always Now ... Not yesterday, last week, last month, last year. It is not tomorrow, next week or next year. Time is always RIGHT NOW ...
Choosing to be in the moment allows us to maximize the opportunities of Today.

There is nothing worth more than this day! -Goethe

Future Dwellers / over-achievers, are so busy creating what they want next year, in 5 years or ten years that they seem to be bumping around from one To-Do list to the next, in order to get to the Holy Grail of rewards.

Future Dwellers tend to think multi-tasking is a special talent.

I know, I used to be that person. I could multi task like a maniac.

Oh yeah ...
Speaking from YEARS of practice in the game of DOING vs. Being.

Before learning to be present, I would send bills without postage, put a cereal boxes in the refrigerator, milk in the cupboard, and in the fit of an obsessive compulsive cleaning fury, lose half of what ever it was I put away to reduce clutter.

Thankfully, multi-tasking has become difficult. Being Present for each task is much more rewarding. Learning to ask for help is a bonus jewel.

At some point, normally during some form of early mid-life curiosity, we are supposed to figure out that life is all about the journey ... The experiences along the way that form our reality. We are supposed to know that we are here to learn more about ourselves and the world around us ... one day at a time.

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.
- Joseph Campbell

If any of this is resonating with you, please consider that the time is NOW to:

* Release yourself from the past and let go of the monsters under the bed.
* Allow your self to be a Human Being instead of a Human Doing.
* Let go of the ball and chain beliefs that others imprinted on your life.
* Forget about the RIGID five and ten year plan.

When you allow your self to experience this moment - You know, the one where you are thirsty and make a cup of tea and take the time to really savor and enjoy it, versus quaffing it down while paying bills, picking up the kitchen and reading the latest copy of ... insert magazine title here - you will start to understand the magic of life's little treasures.

Get on with the business of living your life today on your terms. Release yourself from fear by focusing on abundance, gratitude, opportunity and love.

You are more courageous than you know.

Channeling: Connecting with your Unseen Helplers!

Channeling: Connecting with your Unseen Helplers!
By Expert Author: Patsy Gagnon

We all possess many keys that unlock the Door to our unconsciousness and our soul.

There comes a point in everyone's life when we ask our selves the daunting questions of Who Am I? Why am I here? Where do I go when I die? The most important one is there really a God Source? We may find ourselves asking these questions early in life, after a very traumatic experience or on our death bed. I do believe we ask these questions sometime in our lives.

All it takes is to ask the questions consciously and then be open to hear the answer. You may be handed a key to open another Door. Take the Risk - Open It.

One of the keys we may be handed is to exercise our natural ability to channel.

What is Channeling? Channeling is the ability to make contact with non material realities.

Anyone can be taught how to connect with their higher self and spirit guides, to tap into the information, that huge storehouse of power and intuition that is available for the asking.

While I believe everyone has an innate ability to reach these higher realms to open oneself up to this form of inner guidance and inspiration, it does take honesty, willpower, perseverance and an uncompromising commitment.

Channeling can happen in many forms such as writing music, art, listening to an inner voice, and direct voice channeling. Once this opening to the inner world has been blazed the fog disappears and life is seen clearer and brighter.

When you learn to trust your inner voices and you follow the guidance from your higher self and your guides, great changes will occur in your life. One question is always asked by one before they begin to open to channel, I will include it here.

Q : If one wanted to open themselves up to channel and to become channels, how would they protect themselves from less positive, less life-affirming entities?

A: Before you begin to open yourself up, ask that the highest vibration or good be brought forth through you. Visualize or imagine a bright white light of love surrounding you through which only the highest vibration may penetrate. Meditate before you begin the channel to prepare yourself.

What channeling will not do for you:

Channeling will not solve all your problems, it will change you in ways that will help you change yourself. You will have to take charge of your life but the motivation to change will be there. High level guides will not tell you what to do or take over your body, nor will they control you. Channeling will not make people love you more but will make you love yourself more.

What Channeling will do for you:

Creativity is greatly enhance Guides will help you grow spiritually and gain personal power. People feel more stable, more grounded and in charge of their lives when they channel. Channeling helps you discover your life purpose.

They sometimes make a connection with you in your dreams. When you have the desire and intent to have one just ask for one and you will get one.

How Dream Interpretation Can Be Used For Personal Development

How Dream Interpretation Can Be Used For Personal Development
By Expert Author: Michelle L. Green

Dreams are the most exciting and intriguing part of our day-to-day life. We all see dreams every night. But very rarely, it so happens that we are able to remember them vividly after we wake up. The subject of our dream, place, and issue related get completely lost from our memory as soon as we wake up. Yet, all of us like seeing dreams when we fall asleep.

A famous philosopher and psychologist who go by the name of Sigmund Freud did a great deal of research work on the concepts of dreams and their intimate connection with our spiritual and mental well being.

He described dreams as a state where our dreams provide us with an opportunity to detach ourselves from all the daily chores external stimuli. Freud’s studies mainly revolved around focusing on our internal emotions. He assessed the importance of interpreting our dreams so that we could know about our inner self and thought process.

Dreams allow a person to experience emotions, places and situations, which are not possible in the reality. He even justified the recurrence of some dreams, which are essentially evil, and of haunting nature. Freud reasoned the frequent occurrence of these dreams which are always present in our subconscious mind but these negative emotions are suppressed by an individual and do not surface themselves in our day to day life. But if a person abruptly wakes up after experiencing these emotions in his dreams, it forces him to reconsider and assess his inner emotions. This prevents the person from harboring any more fears, negative feelings or emotions. It also makes the person face his fears boldly rather than trying to evade them.

All of us need to have a clear understanding of our goal and ambition in life. No matter how hard an individual may try, he is not able to determine the course of his life. At such moments, dreams often act as our saviors. Detailed research reveals that several people affirmed the occurrence of signal dreams, which guided them and showed viable solutions to various issues, which were troubling them in their conscious state.

Some people do not believe in the concept of dreams or the amount of impact that they can have on a person’s life. Such people generally are afraid to face themselves and have no sense of self-awareness. Even though they see dreams, but refuse to acknowledge them as a result of the observations of our subconscious mind.

According to Freud, each dream implies two meanings- the manifested and the latent. The manifested meaning is generally a superficial one, which may seem pretty vague and useless. Most of the people generally prefer to interpret a dream based on the superficial meaning and shun it as a frivolous one. But they fail to interpret its hidden meaning, which may actually serve to solve their problems.

Interpretation of this hidden meaning of the dream can be pretty easy by following some steps, such as our dreams are composed of two or more of our issues with only the place of occurrence being displaced.

It has also been observed that people who do not experience any kind of dreams in their childhood or adolescence grow up to be more frustrated, agitated and easily give up when faced by any challenging task.

The prime reason for this kind of trend is that such people generally miss out on the chance to interpret or assess their inner self on the basis of their dreams. And any person who fails to know himself, bond with his inner conscience cannot expect to win over the world and be successful in life. Learn more on how to understand your dreams. Realizing your goals can be accomplished by understanding your dreams and how to use them.

Just What If... What Then?

Just What If... What Then?
By Expert Author: Theresa Twogood

Just what if everything we knew about the universe and the world around us was completely wrong, what then?

Just what if God wanted our faith to be unparalleled, radically unequaled and unable to be proven or disproved by so-called modern scientific evidence, what then?

Just what if we paused for a moment and asked the question that is on all of our minds, ‘why does science feel it necessary to disprove faith? Faith doesn’t wish to disprove science, what then?

Just what if science was able to prove the religious leaning view of some sort of ‘connectivity’ between humans? In other words, we humans are more connected to each other than we are separate, what then?

Just what if we were so bold and unscientific as to offer our reason and proof of the truth of ‘connectivity’ by illuminating the fact that whenever humans attempt to hurt another, they most times end up hurting themselves more, what then?

Just what if we all were granted a ‘God’s view’ or a ‘moment of clarity’ and we all came to the understanding that everything we do and/or will do while in this life was just a series of trials and tests to mold and prepare us for the next world, what then?

Just what if for a moment God stopped time and revealed Himself plainly to us and said, ‘I don’t care if you continue to blame Me for all of this mess. You may continue if you wish, however, understand that it won’t help get you to where you want to be’. If so, what then?

Just what if we could ask God just one question that He would answer plainly to us; could God answer it easily by saying, you didn’t receive because you didn’t ask or you didn’t ask right’, if so what then?

Just what if all the small details didn’t matter one way or the other to God; what if He only wanted us to acknowledge Him and to ask of Him, ‘fatherly assistance’ for whatever we were currently experiencing, what then?

Just what if God reminded us to maintain the fragile balance of prayer for ourselves and prayers for others. God wants us praying more for others in need than for ourselves? Why? Because He already knows what we need and has already promised to provide for us. However, this doesn’t mean that we should not pray for ourselves, simply pray more for others. If we did, what then?

Just what if it became known to us, that by doubting the meanings and promises of God, it was considered as affront to calling our parents liars, to their face, what then?

Just what if in the blink of an eye, it became common knowledge that the reason some people disbelieve God and His rules is because their doubt becomes a pass or an excuse to do as they wish. What then?

Just what if we discovered that our disbelief, skepticism and irreverent thoughts on prayer, as well as our doubting of God, was found to actually block the flow of essential miracles and ‘Godly intervention’ for us and the entire world, what then?

Just what if we spent a whole lifetime wanting more and more to ad nauseam, as well as ‘needing’ things to be, just a certain way before we could begin doing what God wanted us to do, what then?

Just what if there was an abundance of gratuitous pain and suffering, all around us? What if we didn’t stop to pray about it or even take a moment to console another? What if we didn’t because we were more focused on convincing God that we needed a ‘second home’ at the lake for weekends or for some other ‘more’, what then?

Just what if we all were too busy counting the things we didn’t have in relation to others rather than thanking God for all the blessings He has already granted unto us, what then?

Just what if all that happens to us and to the world around us, is nothing more than a big game of Divine hide and go seek with sets of tests and trials to mold and prepare us for what is to comes next? What then?

Just what if we were to completely apperceive that God has a calculated process to bring all things around to the way He wants and we needn’t worry about the process because that just isn’t our job, then what?

Just what if we were to understand that our God is the kind of God that gave us all the rules and when we didn’t follow the rules He sent His Son to pay the penalty for our rule breaking, what then?

Just what if we conscientiously made the decision to stop listening to the philosophy and ‘modern science’ of this world and focused more on God’s words, meanings and promises, what then?

Just what if one day we found it easy to all say, ‘not my will, but your will be done Lord,’ and truly meant it, what then?

Just what if all at once mankind would come to remember that it is how we forgive another as to how God is to forgive us, what then?

Just what if I was so emboldened as to purposely catechize life from diametrical and diverging ‘what ifs’? No need to ever be offended by the results or by ‘it’; for ‘it’ is the subjunctive mood I am sporting that leads to such revealing, what then’s?
