A few years ago I wrote here about my love for adoption. Our family has been waiting to adopt for a very long time. We haven’t been waiting to be chosen, we have been waiting until the time felt right. I am so excited to announce that we are now beginning our adoption journey! If you are interested in our story, please visit our fundraising site. We would love any help you can give us, and prayers and sending love are the best thing you could offer. If you feel inspired, please share our fundraiser with others. I will be sharing more details about our journey and about “Lilly” as events transpire.
I saw a few people doing this experiment on Facebook and I thought it would be a really cool thing for my kids to see. I talk to them about the principals behind it all the time but we all know kids don’t learn best by us just talking to them, and I always love a good experiment. It’s a simple one- you just put some cooked rice into two jars, label one jar with positive words and the other with negative words. And then you wait. We waited about a week. I placed the jars about a foot apart from each other on the counter, and just to be sure I wasn’t swaying it I even put the positive jar on the side closest to the heat from the stove to stack the odds against it. But guess what? Love prevails, always.
Our thoughts and words are energy, just like everything else. Even words we write have energy. Positive energy carries a higher vibration and is promoting of life, while negative energy is the exact opposite. This test proves it. You may have heard of the experiments that have been done with water. One vial of water was exposed to positive energy and the other to negative and then drops of the water were frozen and examined under a microscope. The positive water made beautiful, symmetrical, structured patterns, while the negative water was a big old nasty mess.
Thinking back to the water before and after prayer in the video above, you might consider how praying over and blessing your food actually changes the molecular structure and makes it healthier for you.
Imagine then what negative thoughts do to your body, especially considering that your body is primarily water. If other living things respond to positive energy by becoming healthy, and respond to negative energy by essentially dying, it’s no wonder that our thoughts, emotions, words and actions can either create health or disease in our bodies.
Similarly, if you’ve ever studied muscle testing you will know that when presented with a negative thought or word our bodies will weaken, while a positive thought or word will strengthen us. Think about the language you use with yourself and with those around you. How are you impacting those closest to you? We literally build people up or tear them down by our words and even our thoughts. Even reading words will have this impact on us. Say you post a negative comment on a social media site… you are actually quite realistically dragging people down! So you might say, then, that you have the power to make the world a better place just by posting positive things, and thinking positive things, and speaking positive words. That’s amazing!
As always, my friends, BE love!
YOU have been chosen.
We like to go through life as though nothing exceptional is happening. We like to think about what we’d like to eat, or do this weekend, or where we’d like to be in 5 years, or where we might go on vacation if we had the money. We like wrap ourselves up in TV shows. We like to laugh at irreverent things and use irreverent language and pretend that there is no consequence to any of our choices. You only live once, we say, and so we ought to really LIVE life. We ought to do what makes us happy, what makes us feel good. We ought to think about ourselves because if we don’t make ourselves happy, who will? Right?
Wrong, my friends. So, so, very wrong. If this is your life and your attitude, you have been utterly deceived. The time to wake up is NOW. The way that most of us live is not reality, it is a lie. It is imperative to our temporal and eternal life that we open our eyes and look at the world around us. It is not as it once was. We are surrounded by terrors- terrors which have been prophesied and which are only a miniscule precursor for what is to soon come.
Do not delay in seeking the truth. Do not delay in preparing yourself both spiritually and temporally. In an instant you will soon be living in a world worse than any of us can conceive of. Far, far more gruesome than the worst horror films ever made. We will quickly be living in a literal hell on earth. Where will you stand? In the midst of it to suffer, or will you rise up to stand in Holy Places, places of hope and faith?
YOU have been chosen to live in the time of the coming of Christ, to either be destroyed with the wicked or to fight for right in the Army of God, to labor through the millennium bringing souls to Christ. We already know which side wins this war. It’s time to choose your Master. By not choosing, you choose. And the choice is a dangerous one.
Please watch this 14-minute video and take in the reality that surrounds us, bearing in mind, once again, that these are only signs. They are meant for a warning. The true test has yet to begin, but the bell is set to ring.
Fast Sunday* thoughts-
The forces of light, and the forces of darkness are very, very real, and the veil between us and them is thin. Far more so than most of us realize.
I know that God is real, as is Jesus Christ. They are the most real of all of us. They have physical bodies like we do. They are exactly as we are meant to become. They love is with a love that we cannot fathom. Nothing we have ever felt comes close to it. If we understand that we are literal children of our Heavenly Parents, then we cannot doubt this love. When parents create a child that child is created of the parents. The child is a part of them. This means that we are quite literally made of the very same energy (all things are energy) that God is. If we are of Him, and if he IS love, then he loves us and cannot stop loving us under any circumstance.
I know that because of the love God has for us he will make perfect any imperfection. No matter what happens to us, no matter how painful, he will transform it to benefit and bless us, whether in this life or after. We will always receive a tremendous reward when we strive to live up to his standards for us. And like any parent, those standards are set out of love and for our safety. So no matter how hard life is, no matter what happens to you, no matter how alone you feel, God knows all about it and is always sending you love and has prepared blessings just for you. Always lean on Him, always call on Him in times of need. He gave you prayer, and the gift of the Holy Ghost, and guardian angels, and the power to call down more angels. Use what he has given you. Use the atonement. When we have faith we can always have joy, even in the face of adversity and affliction. This is because we know that it is but a moment, and our reward is great. Never fear, only love.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
*In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the first Sunday of the month is a day of fasting. On this day, instead of having talks given by our ward members during our Sacrament meeting, we stand and bear our testimonies as we feel prompted.
The last installment of my prepare series is intellectual preparation. There are a few simple outlines here of what we can do. Follow your instincts on these because the specifics will be unique to everyone.
Explore Your Interests– Following our interests, or the things we’re most passionate about, is a sure fire way of discovering what our life purpose and spiritual talents are. Whatever it is that makes you feel absolutely alive, take the time to really delve into it!
Refine Your Spiritual Gifts– Once you’ve explored your interests and pinpointed a few things that you feel are an essential part of you, go ahead and give yourself the gift of refining those talents. That may mean taking classes, or practicing, or sharing, etc, depending on the gift, but collect knowledge and resources and get to be the best you can be at it. These skills will be your valuable contribution to humanity in the coming trials. Many people have recently begun recognizing their spiritual gifts and feeling pressed to develop them. There is a reason.
Lean Survival Skills– Important skills include things such as foraging for food, shooting, fire building, fishing, hunting, long term camping, hiking, gardening, herbal medicine, emergency medicine, how to handle stress in an emergency, war tactics, shelter building, etc. I encourage you to get a good survival book that isn’t too big that you can carry with you. Many people will be heading for the mountains on foot with only what they can carry and will need to survive on their own and defend themselves for several years.
Mentally Process– What’s about to happen in the world is a lot to process emotionally and mentally. Allow yourself to grieve. Allow yourself to ponder and come up with strategies. Allow yourself to do whatever you need to do to feel as okay as possible with what you have learned about the world we are living in.
For as long as I can remember, my actions have not been in alignment with my heart. I almost always feel so much love and empathy for every living thing around me, but I’m short tempered, hasty, impatient, and reactive. I spent many years searching for a way to learn to be more loving. I read many parenting books, since this behavior came about when I was under stress, which is typically when I’m with my children. Most of the books offered great advice, assuming you could keep your cool, which I couldn’t. I studied Nonviolent Communication. I prayed my heart out about it frequently. I tried journaling it out. I went to counseling. I bought and checked out from the library countless books that I started reading and never finished. I had massage, SomatoEmotional Release, meridian, and polarity work done on me. I tried every method of relaxation I’ve ever heard of. I took herbal remedies… you get the point. The only thing that made any difference at all was when I started eating a vegetarian diet and working out, but I was still very angry and very reactive a lot of the time. For so many years I went to bed every night with a heart heavy with guilt, praying for forgiveness and asking for help to find a way that I can do better the next day. All I wanted was to be able to express the love that’s in my heart in my everyday words and actions. I wanted to not yell at or hit people anymore. I wanted to not freak out over the buildup of little stresses and injure my hand punching things when I lost control. I wanted to not eat in attempt to numb myself. I wanted to not be filled to the brim with rage. But I just couldn’t get around it, and I couldn’t let it go.
I may be minority here, but I have a feeling I’m not.
Well, recently I was led to something that has been a game changer, and it’s called The Emotion Code. You can get the ebook version for free here. It’s so simple to learn to use, and if you don’t want to learn it, no problem. There are practitioners all over the place and you don’t have to even be in the same state with them for this to work on you. I was halfway through reading the book the first time I used it. I had also watched this youtube video of it being done, so I had somewhat of an idea of how to do it properly. My son had had a headache every night for several days. He had been requesting that I do CranioSacral Therapy on him because that was helping somewhat. I’d started doing the CST releases when I had the thought that there might be an emotional cause. To keep a long story short and eliminate too many personal details for him, he ended up having a remarkable healing. The emotion causing the headache was abandonment and it came from shortly after his birth when he had had an issue with a little fluid in his lungs and had been separated from me to have medical tests done. He cried and cried as I instinctively held him. He seemed to have gone back to that moment in his life and was remember and releasing the trauma. We talked for a long time about the day of his birth and all that we both went through. The next day, for the first time ever, he was a fairly happy kid who didn’t throw fits constantly and beat up his siblings.
The next day, I decided to try it on myself. I’ll hold back the personal details here as well and just say that I did 3 releases on myself that day, and I have not been the same since. I do not yell at my kids anymore. I am not bitter and constantly snapping at my husband. I don’t feel angry. I no longer feel like I’m constantly in a rush and overwhelmed. I feel relatively balanced. I have had no reactive or violent outbursts. I am much more affectionate. I don’t feel like I’ve got a wall build around myself. I’m not constantly in pain from being so tense. I feel more like me than I ever have. I can’t express what a blessing this has been. My heart and my actions are so much closer to always being in alignment now. I’m very excited to learn more and get more practice in this method of healing.

Horrific plagues, genocide, forced micro chipping, martial law, foreign troops on American soil, economic collapse, massive earthquakes, floods, and tsunamis… these things are but a minuscule sampling of what’s to come very shortly. My dear human family, the world as we’ve known it is about to go through a cleansing. She cannot take anymore. The adversary is working hard on all of us and is being unleashed for seven years of tribulation. Don’t take my word for it, do your own study and contemplation. Read the scriptures (this has all been prophesied), read the books I recommend, listen to the radio interviews and read the articles below, and then PRAY. We can know the truth of all things through the influence of the Holy Spirit. I am not exhausting myself sounding the warning because I enjoy it. I hate that I need to inform people of these things, I truly and sincerely do. I’m doing it because I love all of you so deeply and it pains me to tears to think of the suffering you will endure. Please, please, PLEASE take the time to do your research on this. If you don’t, you won’t even know what hits you when it comes. If you do, you’ll be prepared and even if by some chance I (and many others) are wrong, you’ll only be better off for it. You can’t lose by informing yourself.
