Session 2

The Healing power of Joy!

"Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is the fullness of joy: and at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore."

Oh, to be like a little child - enjoying the freedom of abandoned joy in a field of flowers!

Found here in the exuberant display of God's creative artwork, where you feel His presence. And that is the key - His Presence! When we get tuned to the wonder of divine Love, we find His Presence everywhere! It bursts forth in a run, a song, a dance, and a stream of worship in a joy exceedingly and full of glory! 

How great is our God! We cannot help but to rejoice with spontaneous new songs, just flowing from your spirit.

His joy is a power force, raising our frequency in a spurt of energeio - the energy of the Holy Spirit. It causes a creative flow of inspiration that gives you wings. Rising like an eagle, high above the static of this temporary world, you soar on the wind streams of the Spirit. Divine perspective empowers you with creative speech - framing your life and circumstances according to His perfect will and purpose. 

Creativity multiplies as you stay in the flow of joy, finding expression in everything you do and say.

Session 1


3 John v.2 (Ampl)  "Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually]."

There is such a great key to health and wholeness in this verse!

Our soul consists of the mind, will and emotions. When we prosper in the abundance mindset, where we know that all good things are ours in Christ, we carry Kingdom emotions of love, peace and joy. Our will is totally submitted to God. Everything in our lives are in kingdom alignment. This is our true inheritance as saints in the light.

We could say that our soul is singing with thankfulness and joy in God's goodness and grace.

It is almost like your body is listening to the sound of your soul and will respond accordingly.


We have all seen how a grumbling, complaining mindset causes an atmosphere of resentment around a person. This is physically seen in a downward curve of the mouth and a slump in the posture. Someone with a thankful attitude always has a smile and a lilt in their walk, their atmosphere light and vibrant - head held high and body upright. Unfortunately it doesn't end there.


"As a man thinks in his heart, so is he" (Prov.23:7).

The state of mind and emotions also have an effect on the physical well-being of the body. Negative mindsets and attitudes cause toxins to be released into the blood stream.

It is believed that at least 90% of illnesses are originating in the mindset of unforgiveness, resentment, bitterness, jealousy, strife, stress, fear, discontent and anything negative!


So let's do a reality check: What is on your mind? What burden, fear or worry do you carry in the subconscious? And what are the emotions that you carry inside?

What is the prevailing sub-conscious reality which you have been carrying with you all your life? Maybe you think of yourself as "the bright girl who never had a father", or "the woman whose husband had an affair and the whole town knew it",  or "the person who was never valued", and the list goes on.

The good news is that the blood of Jesus has the healing power to heal us of all trauma, so that we can truly enjoy the freedom of abundant living in the glory!

The bad news is that, if you do not allow the Holy Spirit to deal with these issues, bringing healing to the trauma in your emotions, mind and memory, it will eventually have a negative effect in your body.s

Remember, whatever you think, is going to manifest in your body - negative or positive. It is for you to choose: Life or death?


The first step to wholeness always contains repentance of the things that are out of line, which means a return to God's order according to the Word.

The second is to make sure that I have no "ought" against anyone. Walking in forgiveness is key.

Come before the Lord in a humble bow and ask the Holy Spirit to show you the things that need to change. Then, repent before Him and choose to forgive all people who have harmed you, not forgetting yourself. Receive God's forgiveness and see how He washes you with the precious blood of Jesus - white as snow - as if you have never sinned against Him. Yes! That is how great His love is for you. Now ask Him to restore everything in your life and bring you into divine alignment with His will so that you can walk into the blessings.

You will find the "how-to" in Lesson 4 on this Blog. 

I pray that you will open your heart wide that the Lord can bring you into wholeness by the Power of the Blood of Jesus and the working of the Holy Spirit.

Embracing the Potential in your DNA

Lesson 71

Rediscovering some things that were in God’s heart for you before the beginning of the earth, is very much on God’s agenda in this season.


God has been dreaming about you, even writing a poem about your life, with all the unique ingredients of your particular personality, gifts and talents, your call and your destiny – with the intent that you should blossom in the fulness of His workmanship to do the works that He has prepared for you.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10 King James Version (KJV) 

Therefore, take time to become still before Him, tapping into His purposes for you, asking the Holy Spirit to awaken you to His gifts and talents which you might have neglected or never developed, but always desired. It is part of your destiny. Choose to give Him glory by fulfilling His dreams about you!

Lesson 70 

When we break through the veils of our offenses, hurts and wounds through the renewing of our minds, we see in a different way and therefore we can love in a different way by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Realizing our own limitations by the inability to love when we were yet veiled by the hardness of our hearts, we now understand the limitations of others who are still veiled. Jesus asked, “Father, forgive them because they know not what they do”. We can do the same, because in His light we see the light!

Choosing to love as the “right thing to do” is mostly a religious act with feigned “love”, which is a fake to say the least - as all efforts of the flesh are!

So, how will we be able to love with God’s love?

First of all through repentance and forgiveness. Then, simply rest in the Lord and yield to the Spirit of love - unconditionally!

The thing to conquer is our old perceptions and negative thought patterns, while destroying the records of wrong. This puts you in the place where compassion can flow from a pure heart filled with the light of His Presence and the freedom to love even the unloveable!  Thank You, Jesus for Your grace provision through the blood that cleanses us from all unrighteousness!

Build on the Rock so that you be ready when the storm comes

Lesson 69

It’s amazing how our true selves are exposed under the threat of any storm. All our weak areas, which are usually covered up by “works” are suddenly screaming out in panic.

When our comfort zone is threatened with the possibility of danger, lack or loss, the holes in our hedges are exposed and also the deepest motives, intents and condition of our hearts.

Our reactions or responses reveal the reality of our mindsets, captured in the heart – often without us knowing it.

To just ignore these “revelations” of our true reality is to miss the opportunity of growth and transformation.

So let’s face our reality, bringing it before the Lord and mirror it in the truth of the Word, with the purpose of getting renewed in the spirit of mind, breaking out of restrictions and limitations (doubt, fear, unbelief, comparisons with others, selfishness, etc.) that cause us to stay captive within limited thinking.

Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what needs to be transformed and release the old mindsets completely – also by repentance - to intentionally pursue truth, being renewed by it, building your house on the Rock of your salvation.

 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
Matthew 7:24-27 KJV

Lesson 68

When we truly cast our cares upon the Lord, putting our trust in Him, a supernatural peace encompasses us and enters deep into the heart.

”Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV) 
This peace cannot be explained by man, it goes beyond the mind and infiltrates spirit, should and body. This is a place of transcendence,

So, the peace of God goes beyond the mind, encompasses and enters deep into the heart. It benefits the mind, body and spirit. When we enter transcendence into the realm of the manifest presence of God, which is the glory realm peace, joy and love abound.

Shalom denotes wholeness of spirit, soul and body. It is the Spirit of God infiltrating your whole being, bringing it into inner tranquility that remains in the midst of every storm. There is no fear, doubt, unbelief or trepidation. It is a place of blissful contemplation on the goodness and grace of the Almighty. It is Christ in us the hope of glory, radiating from us in joy, hope and love. It brings well-being, prosperity and progress, invading the atmosphere around us and drawing others to Christ in us.

Keep your mind on things above! (Col.3:1-3), because as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. (Prov.23:7)

What we think determines our whole state of being!

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So, trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]." (Isaiah 26:3-4 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition) 
Finally, I want to bless you with the Priestly blessing of Numbers 6:24-26:
"The Lord bless you and keep you; 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; 

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace."

Lift your face, seeing how Jesus shines His love, grace and peace over you, absorbing it into your spirit by faith. It will remove all darkness and His character will manifest towards you as you stay in the eye of His presence in perfect wholeness where no storm can invade.

Now let radiate out of you!

Lesson 67 

To be sound in mind, we need to be strengthened by the Spirit in our inner man with the power of His might, His dunamis resurrection power.

How does that happen?

By being filled with the Spirit on a daily basis – drinking into the Spirit (1 Cor.12:13)(Eph.5:18).

As we worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, meditating on His Word and praying much in tongues, our inner man gets “overtaken” by the Spirit, being rooted and grounded in His love.

It is this agape love that drives out all fear, filling us with power to comprehend the breadth and length and depth and height of His love, coming to and experiential knowledge of his love, filling us with all His fullness. A sound mind is the inevitable result.

2 Tim.1:7

Lesson 66

When traveling to and through different nations, it’s amazing to observe the variety in God’s creative genius – especially when moving through airports. It is an ongoing creative kaleidoscope of color, race, shape, size, sound and disposition – coming forth in such beautiful potential with endless possibility in the development of talents, gifts and skills into prophetic destiny.

What we do with what God has invested in us, is our choice and responsibility.

Getting in touch with His fore-ordained creative purpose for our lives to fulfill His original vision in the bigger design of His Kingdom destiny, is for us to search out.

His provision is perfect to the minutest detail – to be found in Christ in abundant, glorious, overflowing riches. How perfect are His ways, how wondrous His works!

My encouragement for you is to set your mind on things above, connecting with His original creative poem for your life in all its beautiful facets to fulfill His purposes and desires, engaging in your part in the Kingdom  – bringing Him all the glory that you were created for.

It is easy! Worship, tune, find your true colors in His intended expression in Christ and align with His creative workmanship in you, shedding all the excess. Let Him paint His picture in you and through you, allowing Him to shine through you in brilliant light to truly reflect Him – wherever He has chosen to place you in any moment!

His artistry is superb! His essence is Love! His purpose is God’s glory!

Take your place, be filled and SHINE with His royal colors!

Identity in Christ

Lesson 65

When we truly know our identity as a new creation in Christ, we will never look back to the old. 

The cross of Jesus Christ is the turning point where we have dealt with sin, the flesh, the old nature of self and the things of the world.

We are raised with Christ through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit and we walk in the liberty of the Holy Spirit in newness of life - full of His power, His love and His glory. 

Having our mind set on things above, every day is an adventure of new discovery in the glory of His Presence in communion with God.  

We live from the counsel of God, receiving divine instruction for every step of our way and He always leads us in triumph over every difficulty by the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we walk in dependence on Him in absolute obedience. 

Our full provision for every need is in Christ Jesus - according to the riches of God’s glory! 

This is the abundant life in Christ that He purchased for us by His blood! Hallelujah!
