LIP FRUIT, MIND FRUIT


LORD HELP ME

Words are powerful! When I think about the condition of the world, I feel  saddened, knowing that much of the chaos is because of negative speaking from people’s lips. What happened to that can do attitude  of our movie heroes and local inspirational folk?  Jesus talked about how words’ influence our atmosphere and world.

Luke chapter 6 verse 45 The new living translation elaborates this truth clearly.

 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.

Of course the Bible says that none of us are good, (meaning perfect) ,but  our heavenly Father does require us to try to be as much like him as we can, and it is possible with our helper and counselor the Holy Spirit.

Today,  as I wiped down my spotted white kitchen cabinets thoughts about my chaotic world flew out.  I’m  an intercessor, part of the 24/7 strategic Prayer conference family and Pastor Augusto’ Perez’s The Appearance Ministries women’s battalion. We are given prayer points each day and the topics and urgent prayers range from troublesome to utterly staggering. Often, I wake up fully believing that  God had indeed resolved d some of the  crisis. We intercessors know from experience that our God is gracious and merciful and desires to see good come out of bad circumstances.  We see many victories  and success stories from people from all walks of life across the globe.

As my thoughts continued flowing, I wondered if I was responsible for adding negativity by any careless and decided to call two women up to encourage.

My sisters and I were brought up by a very unhappy and negative mother (God rest her precious soul) who constantly complained and found fault with everything we did.  She seemed to go out of hr way to  scrutinize and focus on other people’s flaws even when she left her house to go grocery shopping or to her bank. Her example strongly influenced us, ( although I vowed that as a child of God I(  would not allow myself to adapt any ungodly attributes because it was displeasing to Father.  Sadly, my sisters develop-ed low self-esteems and  anxiety-related illnesses.

Somehow despite my high grad- point college average at graduation, I inherited my mother’s negative strongholds and ancestral curses. My sisters and I had difficulty being successful in our perspective gifting s.  I know that there was no logical reason that I never gained success in any of my many talents, including music, fashion, graphic design, and writing or photography talents.  There also was no denying that I wasn’t gifted as my college professors were always impressed by my work ethic and creativity.  But after remarrying, I found I could only go so far on a very limited and local platform. Frustration consumed me often. I had to find out what the mystery was. It just made no sense that all my efforts were often futile or sabotaged by some unseen force. I saw many of my fellow Christian brothers and sisters as well as non-believers who enjoyed and/or made a decent living for themselves and their families.

So, today, Proverbs 18:31 blares out like a foghorn in a black-misted sea. It is the answer to my dilemma. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. The New Living Translation says, The tongue can bring death or life;   those who love to talk will reap the consequences. In other words, rest assured fruit, whether positive or negative will grow from the words we speak!

All the utterings of humanity course and clash violently with each other. The righteous declaring life and hope declarations, while witchcraft and the resentful curses of the wicked lasso the faithless and fearful. If only the world could understand the implications of their speech so the healing truth of Christ could heal and  bring order, rest and restoration.

My experience and fellowship with the anointed intercessors on our daily conference prayer calls and prayer battalions have proven to me that truly our lips are powerful conduits of supernatural strength when aligned with the living truth of our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. Hearing the intercessors testimonies and victorious lip feats prove that it is possible to wield power and authority through our very words!

Many more of us need to understand how our very words which are (and have caused) the world’s cruelty, genocide, human-trafficking, pollution, and chaos. We must also understand that when we lose sight of being spiritually-connected to the natural world, (instead of receiving our fulfillment from our cell-phones, I-pads and computers), unity and productive communication is lost.  Inanimate technology cannot substitute the depth of human  Koinonia (fellowship) and conversational intimacy. So, being tethered to technology causes us inadvertently to be an active participant in spiritual warfare. Many do not want to believe in the supernatural or satan, but it is a reality and those who deny satan’s powerful influence are witnessing the hell and hopelessness of people’s lives. We intercessors know from experience that satan is alive and well and we are the teeming battalions across the globe who are opposing evil as we wage vicious warfare, with our Biblical and positive declarations!

I hope after reading my blog and the following insightful Goop Wellness article, you will make a New year’s declaration that you will take authority and responsibility for the words that come out of your mouth. May you fill your world with hope, anticipation and beauty.  Open your eyes, your mind and heart and create a new world for yourself and your loved ones and those you rub elbows with!

The Anointing Breaks the Yoke


While  seeking t teaching series from one of my  Pastors, Augusta Perez, Appearance Ministries, on the YouTube channel, my eyes happened on the row of recommended videos. My eyes caught the vision of a man with deformed lips and I had to see his story.

Within the first 10 minutes, I was moved to compassion about the  daunting, yet powerful journey of Alex Lewis. I know it is no coincidence that I’m compelled to follow  God;’s leaning to compose another blog.  Far into Alex’s story, I am amazed by his fortitude, courage and determination not to succumb to suicide or curse God. This precious man’s story encourages me in my own daunting health journey from mercury poisoning and TMJ-Dystonia from an improperly removed amalgam filling 12 years ago, (2007).

The more I witness his companion’s strength and devotion to him in all  his stages of surgery, uncertainty and difficulty, the more I  cherish how God has been all too gracious to me. Although my journey into the minority of “special needs” adults doesn’t quite compare to the drastic changes and challenges of Alex, I can all too attest that a catastrophic health condition rocks not only your world, but the world of you companion and children. In Alex’s case, his devoted lady seems never to be resentful, cruel or negligent and manages to juggle the couple’s business and managing Alex’s affairs.

For those who do not live with a disabling condition, ( including me before Dystonia) we often take our life and health for granted. We often complain more than we praise God and we often do not honor and appreciate those around us who are there for us and helping us. In Alex’s case, his  plummet into severe disability caused him to remember who he was before his illness, (a man who drowned his sorrows in alcohol) and he  was grateful for the precious lessons his condition was teaching him.

Even though I wasn’t an ungrateful  or superficial person before my condition, ( I have been serving the precious Lord and Savior of my life since 1982) and y desire has been to become like Him , Never have I had a more grateful heart to God and the ability to focus on the beauty rather than the negative. This is not easy most of the time because of the distracting and often very uncomfortable throat, neck and mouth-jaw seizures, but I’m brought back to God’s reality  aspiring to have a thankful heart.

My condition has caused me to become more patient, more  enduring and accepting of other’s weakness . It has really upped the level of my ability to be empathetic and to really “feel” deeply how others are suffering.  Ministering for many years in New jersey area nursing homes, I was well-acquainted with how the elderly and handicapped suffer isolation, hopelessness and often fear. They do not know if they will live to the next holiday or their birthday., Many find themselves  becoming so disabled, they are bed-ridden. I used to minister to a precious Catholic woman who was so overweight and could only breath with her oxygen tank. She had indomitable courage and often would grab my hand, “Child, come here and let’s bring this to the Lord” she would smile.

I also remember watching one of my dear friends Theo Vrahnos, fall to Wilson’s Disease.  The handsome, long-haired, drum maestro and football star was bed-ridden for many months and lost the ability to speak clearly.  Along the way, I saw the health of many confidants and musician friends completely collapse and change their lives forever.

The usual response when we see friends and loved ones’ health fail is to became upset and baffled. We don’t know what to say. In my case, my violent twitching made many of my church family uncomfortable and most just don’t want to  make the 50 minute drive to visit me.  I have found that the body of Christ often lack the desire to step into ministering to “special needs”,  housebound or bedridden folks unless they are in their own church.  I totally relate to housebound people and I am desperate to overcome this  condition so I can minister one on one to the elderly and housebound in my community.

I am grateful for this gift of empathy Father God has allowed to hone in me a deep empathy and love for people. In fact, though I rarely have a friendly visit, I compensate by ministering to the precious, suffering Christian Lyme disease brothers and sisters. Since Lyme can be a death sentence, there is nothing more imperative than guiding them into a deeper and more authoritative  prayer life and deeper intimacy with their Heavenly Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.

Nick Vujicic is one of my mentors and when ever began to feel sorry for myself, I watch his inspiring videos. You and I have nothing to  lose hope about when you see how this passionate and devoted  Christian man approaches life!

 

There are multitudes who are hopeless and many who suddenly take seriously ill and end up in the hospital. Some, like Alex  wake up from their anesthesia and find themselves with amputated limbs and must cope with facing a very different and very challenged existence.  Everyday , thousands receive a Cancer, MS or heart failure diagnosis.  Thousands of our precious servicemen and women commit suicide each day because of  the traumas of war and memories. We have the power to stop satanic attacks. We can come boldly to the heavenly throne room and ask Father to deploy his powerful warring and ministry angels to protect our children, our schools our neighborhoods and our communities. All of the medical and health  atrocities can be minimized by our fervent prayer. That anointing is a shield of protection and a hedge!

u . he only answer is for God’s people, the body of Christ to rise up in authority and plead the blood of Jesus Christ daily, over their family, loved ones, neighborhoods, co-workers and local community. Believe it 1 Satan is alive and well and everyone is under attack.  We (we, God covenant people) are the hedge that protects the enemy from having access and creating chaos, sickness and death.

I hope that after watching Alex and Nick’s stories, you come out with a sense of expectation to became all that God has called you to be.: a powerful prayer warrior with the ability to move mountains and change the landscape of our  health and lives. There are people who collapse and die and there are people who triumph and bring hope to others who re lost and suffering.  The substance which sustains and empowers  Champions is dependence on the supernatural strength of our mighty supernatural Jehovah God!  Nick and I know the secret of power,  spiritual influence and transformation. The power of God is revealed in us as the precious anointing. When we abide  intimately in him, we are endued with all might, power, authority and hope.

If you are incapacitated, suicidal or dying and you wish to have this living hope, please  declare in faith the Salvation prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for your son Jesus, the Christ.  Please forgive me for my sins and iniquities and wash me clean, Jesus in your precious blood.  I ask you to be my Lord and Savior today and I wish to serve you for the rest of my life. I am yours forever and I thank you Father for the forgiveness of sins, in Jesus name I pray, amen.

THE SWORD of the SPIRIT


LISA BEVERE sword of the Spirit

A few weeks ago,  I went to my local library where I go each day to work on my book, Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum, (While Navigating the Minefields of Life). Earlier, I was laying in my lounge chair in my porch pavilion where I start the day in quiet devotion and meditating on scriptures. It was a stunningly warm, sunny, blue-skied day. I left my open Bible and journal and proceeded to my favorite desk and computer at the library. After a few minutes, I heard the sound of vicious rain on the roof top of the library. Alarmed I listened closely and remembered that I had left my Bible and journal by my lounge chair. I was annoyed that the sudden downpour had caught me by surprise and my Bible would be ruined.

When I returned home I rushed to my pavilion. To my utter surprise,  my whole backyard and my neighbors yards were dry! I rejoiced that my heavenly Father so protected my yard from the rain despite the fact the library was the next street over. Many stories have been told of house fires where everything burned except the Bible!. How glorious and invincible is God’s word!

We;ve heard comments from friends and loved ones who debate and argue that they have read the Bible and they are full of their opinions relating to it’s divine power and authenticity.I can attest to the fact that the Holy Scriptures indeed are divinely inspired and endued by Jehovah God’s very presence!
              2 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two             edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of           the  joints  and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the         heart. Heb 4:12 KJV

God’s inspired word  is likened to nourishing, fruitful rain on a garden. Isaiah gives us a beautiful picture of God’s word.  Derrick Prince and his wife started each day declaring this scripture!

               “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return                 there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may     give seed  to the sower And bread to the eater,  So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to me  void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for  which I sent it.  Isaiah 55 10-11

One of the most amazing and illustrative events is God telling Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones. Imagine the scene. Ezekiel beholds a valley expanding as far as his eye could see. Innumerable bones cover the valley ground.

“Prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, Oh ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord” Ezekiel obeyed and  the bones began to come alive, According to his belief and trust in God, Ezekiel’s  powerful words manifested living souls!

Many of  us probably remember when Jesus spoke and cursed the fig tree because it didn’t bear fruit. His disciples were astounded that the next day, the tree was withered. Jesus  has all authority and power, (both dunamus and exousia) to see the manifestation of whatever is spoken to and we are join-heirs with Christ having that same authority!  One of my favorite scripture memory verses in Psalm 119:105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Our very footsteps are illuminated as  we enter and traverse the darkest  seasons of our lives. We can be assured that God is always with us,, because His word is living and active and more than  able to sustain and nourish us!

THY WORD video

I have found God’s word to be my sustaining force and lifeblood. Without the declaring , applying the principles and  (hiding His word in my heart), I would not have been able to endure some of the catastrophic seasons of my life!  The Lord’s prayer asks, Give us this day our daily bread. Abba has given us everything we need , and endless supply of spiritual food. We can  have fresh manna everyday as we come to  he banquet table! And depending on how expectant and joyous we are to the spread, the results  are often miraculous. Our Heavenly Father is supernatural and so is Hus word. He declared Let there be light and the world came alive with His presence.

Lisa Bevere is a beautiful and anointed woman of God who share amazing stories.  She was disturbed that women  were often at the bottom, which is contrary to God’s word which says, we are the head an not the tail.  I love  her chutzpah and she has written a wonderful book which I know will transform and empower my precious sisters (and brothers)  in Christ!

Sadly, many of our brother’s and sisters  walk the fruitless path of the earthly, (natural) and they will not see the glorious manifestations of living faith  Only those churches who believe in the supernatural prophetic will understand the power of the living word and the Holy Spirit’s  revelatory role in the triune Godhead.  I am grateful to be part of powerful prayer battalions where  we are urged to walk in greater authority. Our battalion leader, Sandra,  reminded us to elaborate on the weapons of our warfare and thus came this blog. Thank you, Sandrita!

If you constantly ask, “Is there more to life than this?” then your time has come to plunge deeper into  the Lord. As the Psalmist beckons in Psalm  34:8  Taste and See that the Lord is good!  Speak and wield that word as an axe, swinging left to right and see your enemies be scattered, discomfited. and destroyed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RECOVERING FROM MERCURY POISONING, HEAVY METALS & LYME by Restoring the Gut Lining for Optimal Health


Did you know that the workings of your gut, the gastrointestinal system is directly related to other systems of your body including the activity of brain chemicals, mood and nutrient absorption. . When I was first diagnosed with Dystonia in 2007, even my primary care physician had no idea what my condition was. It took him  about ten minutes to go through his physicians manual to come up with the diagnosis. From that day on, and  going from  doctor to doctor to neurologist to chiropractor to even environmental MDs, it took me  12 years to come to the root issue of my Dystonia mystery. Most frustrating is the fact that none of the medical professional who examined me even  suggested I was suffering from leaky- gut from my anti-biotic treatments.

Most Dystonia medical websites cite a dysfunction of the basal ganglia as the root cause of the  nd my question was always, so what is causing the basal ganglia area to misfire and cause uncontrollable movements?  Very little information is given and Dystonia is labelled an incurable condition.  I have seen far too many  posts from Dystonia and Lyme Disease sufferers whose practitioners have given few options for recovery because so little seems to be known. But after finding good information and amazing healing testimonies from individuals who have been treated by natural protocols by natural practitioners, about gut health and pro-biotics, I declare there is hope!

Recently,  I made an amazing discovery compelling me to forge into  a more focused and informed healing protocol addressing my gut issue. Despite, my fatigue, brain=fog and decreased motivation, I was even more determined to take total control of my health.  My 12 plus year  relentless pursuit hasn’t waned to find answers to my ever-mysterious and tormenting PLatysma-TMJ Dystonia sympto  ms. I left no stone unturned and each week, I devoted many hours to research.

https://www1.cbn.com/health/a-primer-on-probiotics

My use of Glutiathione, coupled with Chlorella and organic Cilantro was not working and neither was were all the special supplements Mark was buying me.  The quality of my sleep was diminishing. I was waking up three or 4 times during the night with vicious mouth spasms.  I was getting very alarmed also that the quality of my hair was poor and it wasn’t growing in about a year.  I was so sensitive to EMF That I couldn’t stand even an hour on the computer.  The car’s engine power was also excruciating, making the nerves of my neck and throat muscles pull so hard, I could barely breath. It was getting crazy and living was getting to be overwhelming and miserable.

About  three months ago, I noticed waking up several more times during the night with feeling my left arm and hand having no circulation, This really alarmed me. I also noticed the skin on my two elbows so dry and tough. I have never had severely dry elbows before and figured it might have something to do with being dehydrated, (although I often drank 8 or more glasses of mineral water a day.   Something was causing my mind, bod, spirit and energy wane and I knew if I didn’t stop this degenerating process soon, I would not be able to live a fulfilling life.  The more I’d researched  the effects of Mercury and heavy metals, the more I deduced that all my issues were related to this toxic substance  blocking the absorption of my nutrients, minerals and the brain chemicals-reflexes.  Now I understood why Dr Dietrich ‘s detoxifying program wasn’t working for me, because first I had to address my damaged gut lining.

May 31, I GOOGLED, “The effects of mercury on the Myelin sheath”. (I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this before as I’d found many health-medical sites referring to Myelin sheath damage. I came upon a link from a practitioner who told a lengthy story of her Mercury Poisoning disaster. I almost broke down in tears as she went through exactly what I was going through.

Connie Fox is a licensed, certified Holistic health practitioner specializing in Mercury and heavy metal detoxification. I believe she is a gift to the medical world and I believe her story saved my life! She shares her insight and trial and error experiences proving that the cause of Mercury toxicity is a leaky gut and before any mercury removal can happen, the gut ling needs to be restored! Here is the missing puzzle piece of my deteriorating health. I was ecstatic upon finding this discovery and later researched some other wonderful and Youtube practitioners who expound on Disbiosis, (Leaky Gut Syndrome). If you are suffering from, EMF sensitivity, brain fog, Digestive issues I would prepare to connect with a certified practitioner to help you with the Mercury Detoxification problem. This may be the cause of your Dystonia, (or neurological disorder) as it was mine!

Getting to the Root, Heal the Gut, Heal Your Life:

Christina Orrecchio, a clinical-holistic nutritionist has given us an amazingly comprehensive and holistic strategy for gut-healing. I’d never heard of or even considered  Disbiosis as being the cut to my health issues.  I remembered that during my Lyme Tenure,  I suffered from a long and vicious case of  Candida, (a condition of yeast proliferation from long anti-biotic use. MY doctors Rosephin and Amoxicilin prescriptions killed all my good probiotics. He never told me to take probiotics while on my Lyme  Treatments.  Here was the catalyst to my  chronic  battles with respiratory ailments whcih were catastrophic for a professional singer-performer. It was an absolutely staggering challenge to keep employment, let alone do anything of significance.  The two years I battled Candida were one of the most difficult seasons of my life.  Were it not for an amazing Chiropractor who practiced natural healing, I would probably not be alive today.

Now that you know about Gut health and how it affects your body,  you can move forward addressing your leaky gut. Christa is so comprehensive in her explanation of Gut Disbiosis. and you’ll be amazed at all the things you’ve doing wrong and eating wrong  these years!  I am grateful for the informative natural practitioners who have shared this new knowledge with us on YouTube.  I’ve never  considered Disbiosis to be a cause of my Platysma-TMJ Dystonia, but understand  how this affects the central nervous system and the neurotransmitters of the brain.

The systemic inflammation in my body from my leaky gut was making me steadily more and more sensitive to atmosphere iv factors, dampness, low-barometric pressure during rain and even humidity. My  neck and jaw joints, ached and became super inflamed.  It was getting to be miserable living  for my good days lessened and I was  able to do less and less. My creativity and motivation were also affected. I knew something was just not right and I knew I had better get researching again and find the answer o this miserable mystery. It was getting harder and harder to stay positive as I left no stone unturned in seeking answers for my diminishing energy.

 

I hope the following links help you to understand your gut and its health and also to apply detoxifying- cleansing strategies  and even exercises and physical rehabilitation  for optimal health. I shared Dr Mandel’s  cervical and Occipital exercises in my  last Dystonia blog.. I highly suggest you also research the benefits of activated charcoal and clay: Make sure to work with your practitioner before applying any new health protocol.  Dr Richard Scultze has some amazing detox products for the kidney’s and liver. Mark and I have used his products and they are superior.

GROWING in EXCELLENCE


 

serenity prayer

I was pondering the rising incidence of violence, senseless murder, rioting and the present tendency to focus on negativity and hopelessness. It really troubles me that in spite of all our modern technology,  endless supply and choices of supplies, merchandise, food and modern conveniences, many of us Americans are still a miserable and unsatisfied bunch.  There are exceptions of course and we all do know people who greatly and positively influence their circle or community.

As a journalist, songwriter , artists and mentor, I take no greater delight than in seeing others flower and produce beautiful fruit! Many of us artists can be overly sensitive and prone to self-pity when hit by crushing trials or challenges, (like the deaths of loved ones and pets, loss of a job-career  or a catastrophic illness)  which greatly curtails and derails the path of our lives. I understand all these detours very well, having had  more than my share of difficult  seasons.  For many of us,  difficulties have stunted and left  us spinning our  wheels in neutral indefinitely, but for others,  we stay on course, focused on  our (and others) upward momentum of excellence.

As I thought about the futility, (and the sad waste of human intelligence)  of traversing the lower road of emotional stagnancy, bitterness and toxicity, I deem this blog to be of great necessity for many. I believe cultivating an excellent mindset is of great benefit to the world.. This article will be a but shorter than my usual blog posts  what award-winning anther, Travis Bradvbury’s article says about our brain-potential , 18 Signs You Have High Emotional Intelligence is so comprehensive an enlightening! Check out his article:

18 Signs You Have High Emotional Intelligence

I’m presently going through storms of very difficult relationship issues following the passing of my mother and the estrangement of a cherished  near-relative and it again causes me to soul-search ways that I can navigate and grow from this heartbreak of loss, disappointment and rejection. I want to say that I am confident that my faith in God and His kindness to me causes me to use my experiences and victories over depression to help others to become excellent and fruitful people and  encourage them to mentor others who have trouble navigating difficult relationships and  traumatic life events!. I’d applied one of my favorite Bible scriptures to my lifestyle, remembering to get out of myself and not focus on my selfish ambition or empty pride and to humble myself , considering others more important than myself. Phil 2 3&4 We all need to try to not focus  on our own interests all the time,  but to show interest in the interests of others. This is not easy to do for most of us, but is a skill and edifying trait which can be cultivated.

We would expects leaders or religious mentors to have the gift of edifying and encouragement , but this is not always the case. Many are  stressed-out and focused on their own endeavors. and some are even narcissistic.  I would just like the end this article with saying that mentoring, encouraging and building up broken people has been the most precious and gratifying  job I could be privileged to have! From my very early days in the 1980’s , as a young woman immersed in nursing home ministry , to prison ministry, to serving battered and dislocated women with Love in the name of Christ non-profit, to presently mentoring Lyme Disease and Dystonia sufferers, there is no greater love or joy than building up others. Empowering others strengthens families, our communities and our nation.

We must try to address the issues of suicide, mental illness, family estrangement and anarchy by prayer, unified outreach and especially asking God His wisdom to wrong the rights of this world. We will not see positive change in our families, communities and nation if we continue to relentlessly chase our own dreams with out  any interest or thought to intervene and help others when and if we can. I hope  Travis’s insightful article prompts you to a new level of high emotional intelligence and I know if more of us embrace some of the attributes, we will so enhance and build upon positively the atmosphere of our world!

THE DOOR


Jesus at the door

       We buried my mother, Helga, this past Saturday at Ely Funeral home, Neptune, NJ.  She passed away at her abode, Concord   Rehabilitation center, June 25, 2019 from over four years of Dementia symptoms  It became harder and harder to see my mother so diminish each time my husband, Mark and I visited her. Tears would start to well in my eyes and I had stop and take a deep breath, aching Holy Spirit to strengthen me. My anointed Taylor guitar in hand and Father’s ministering angels surrounding  us in her room, I started to sing beloved healing hymns of faith.  As I leaned heavily on Jesus, I felt peace come over me and started to prophecy in song about mom’s deliverance, healing and  emancipation from the foreboding WWII and Nazi memories of Germany. For too long those ghosts smothered my mother and Mark and I were not about to let her go into eternity without Christ’s covering.

It was  a devastating burden to to see  vicious and merciless Dementia rob my mother of her mind and body. When I received the call from my mother’s social worker and I shared the news with my closest intercessor sisters , I immediately felt strengthened as they spoke courage, strength and peace over my three sisters and I.

     Mom’s burial was a very private affair with only my 2 sisters, my aunt, cousin, niece and a handful of long-time family friends.         

THE DOOR        

Our gathering here today is not only to pay last respects and bid farewell to my mother, Helga Stenzil Ferrer, but also to give credence and glory to Almighty God for the opportunity to enter the door of eternal life and salvation in Christ Yashuah.  I wish to share with you the channels, starting from my girlhood to my mother’s passing, and how it can affect your life today and your own eternal destiny.

I discovered as a teenager that I was a non‑conformist. Never one to embrace legalistic tradition and religion, my spiritual probing always brought me to the edges of radical faith. A deeply introspective and sensitive girl, I found it hard to connect with both of my parents. I kept a diary where I was able to explore my thoughts without condemnation and ponder what my life would be if my family lived peacefully and lovingly with each other.

The day after mom’s death, a dam of countless sorrowful and unresolved events spewed forth, in particular the senseless way both my father and mother died. I’m sure some of you may have felt the weight upon the loss of a cherished loved one. You found yourself suddenly thrown into the reality of burial and funeral details. Mark and I have had our share of funerals and the burying of beloved pets. The recent loss of our beloved Tabby, Bikini drew me directly into God’s perspective, a divine revelation about the brevity of life. From this revelation came my blog, Teach Us to Number Our Days, Moses Psalm 90. How accurately Moses portrayed the brevity of our lives as he cried to God for wisdom to live life intimately with God.

And so, as I prepare for my Mother’s farewell and grieve for what could have been, God impresses me to meditate on John 10:9.  Jesus said “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and go in and out and find pasture”.

We’ve all heard about stories of girls and women caught in terrible events and left vulnerable and exposed. My mother, my sisters and I, (as well as innumerable girls and young women worldwide) bear the scars of rejection, abandonment and abuse‑neglect.  I’ve encountered many women in crisis during my mentoring tenure at Love Inc ,Christian non-profit ministry and understand their feelings of fear, isolation and hopelessness. Without a safe haven, and stability, there is no way to survive and move forward.  There were no doors of safety open for these victims. Statistics rise regarding suicides, nervous breakdowns domestic abuse and/or murder by husband. I am one of the blessed ones who had the sense to use the shreds of sense I had left, (after so many traumatic events) to make the wisest choice I could ever make …to ask for and enter Jesus door!

If only my mother Helga had the joy and relief to enter Jesus’ door. Difficulties abounded for her to the very end, but Mark and I are humbled and grateful to have the privilege of ministering to her through intercession and remission of her sins. We trusted that Father God, in His mercy would redeem her soul. We cried, asking Father to deploy battalions off warring and ministry angels to shatter the demonic bondage that threatened to keep her from eternal life in heaven. We believe Father heard our earnest supplication, for our battle for our loved ones souls is not tangible and earthly, but a spiritual battle. Eph 6:12

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” and there is no way we can ever enter heaven without his shed blood as our redemption. Mark and I know that we (and all persons) ,will give an account of our words and deeds during our lives. At the Bema (judgement) seat, Christ will be our judge. At the White Throne judgement, those who refused to accept and live for Christ will be judged and cast into hell for eternity.

Some may protest. “I’ve never killed anyone or robbed a bank”. But I tell you, none can enter Christ’s door, neither by the Catholic sacraments of baptism, confession or the Eucharist. You cannot enter His door through your good works, charitable donations and the sign of the cross, nor attending Bible studies or even reading the Bible.  Our very words and actions bear witness to whether we bear good fruits or evil fruits. Life and death is in the power of our tongues and our words set the atmosphere of our lives   and even affects those near and distant! Rest assured, we will give an account, 2 Cor 5:10

Galatians 5:22 clearly lists the beautiful and gracious fruits of the spirit, love joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self‑control. And of cruse, Galatians 5:19 describes the bad as sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry, witchcraft,, hared, discord, jealousy,, fits of range, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy and drunkenness. And let us not forget Jesus commandment of forgiveness in the Our Father prayer. The sin of unforgiveness opens the demonic door to strongholds of resentment and bitterness which has destroyed many marriages and families. Be of good cheer, for the nitty‑gritty sins and strongholds of our souls and family bloodlines have already been cleansed when we appropriate Christ’s, blood to our lives and families. Christ is the all‑sufficient sacrifice for our lives, health and wellness.

Jesus Christ, Yashuah HaMashiach, is the only way the truth and the life. He is also the resurrections, the bread and the door. If curses, bad fortune and sorrow has been a part of your life, bring them to the cross and ask Christ into your life to cleanse and redeem you from your past and your families’ tainted bloodlines. That door to  supernatural healing and peace is available right now today, if you ask Him!

Dystonia & Movement Disorders, (Affected by Occipital and Cranial Issues)


Well into my 12th year battling TMJ-Playtysma Dystonia and having been passionately commuted to weekly research regarding recovering from this devastating and debilitating condition which has so diminished the quality of my life. My daily devotions to the Lord and in my prayer time, I have sought His wisdom, revelation and understanding of the extremely complicated structure of my cranial and Occipital area, (which I had never even heard of a year ago! I’m very grateful to my TMJ doctor, Dr Jeffrey Brown, who introduced me to the complicated anatomy of the jaw, spine, neck and cranial area, all of which  and neck are the severely dysfunctional areas of Cervical Dystonia sufferers.

I’m learning that besides mechanical dysfunctions  of the spine and cranial bones , other factors such as toxic bowels, liver, kidneys and  colon can also contribute to bodily sluggishness and toxicity., (including brain fog and depression). Because our water, air and the environment, are loaded with toxins and chemicals, we must have a triple-pronged detoxification regimen.  Our recovery-cleansing process will entail hard work,  dedication to exercise disciplines, etc. For some of us, (as in my case ,  having a mercury and mold sensitivity, has become ) the process may be very long and discouraging, but we will succeed through diligent  discipline and prayer.

I am just a passionate student of anatomy, medicine and natural healing, but whatever I have learned along the way, I am blessed to share for many who do not have the finances to afford  several holistic practitioners who often charge very high fees fir their services. For those of you who do not have the finances, I suggest doing extensive research first, study your anatomy, be informed about your condition, so that when you have some idea of teh area which is afflicted, you can connect with the right doctor. Mark and I have wasted thousands of doctors of MDs who we were incorrectly referred to who confirmed that they were not the specialist we needed. Had I known more about cervical, Occipital and jaw anatomy 12 years ago, I would have first gone to a TMJ specialists and saved eight thousand dollars! Study your anatomy and know your body.

After many desperate years researching the reason for the violent neck, throat and jaw spasms. This section entails various chiropractic You tube videos. I came upon an amazing and greatly-informed chiropractor, Dr Mandell who is intent upon sharing his  expertise with all who are suffering.  He really is amazing and also educates us TMJ and Dystonia sufferers  with exercises to address or misalignment. I believe Dr Mandel’s exercises will help many!  His anatomy pictures are even better than my Grey’s anatomy diagrams.

Resorting mobility in the Occipital area:

Vertigo  and Tinnitus sufferers will benefit from this exercise. The Occipital area could be affected:

This next video is a video about the SCM (Sternocleidomastoid)  muscle . Much of my distress involves this SCM and the Platysma muscle. This dysfunction can be related to poor posture and  sitting at a computer all day.

For those of you who suffer from jaw issues, here is a very informative video from my TMJ Doctor, Dr Jeffrey Bron and he is  a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. I highly recommend him if you have TMJ.

I met Gustav Grundsoe on the Facebook Curalistic group.  Gustav invited me to his special group of TMJ people. Gustav is  gentle, compassionate and  passionate about helping people suffering from accidents or injuries recover to  their full lives again. Gustav has an amazing track record of helping so many people heal from whiplash and TMJ issues that he has his own website beside his  very popular Facebook page!
