H.E. Olsen is an author whose first published book Discovering True Love is coming out ithis month. I had the privilege of asking Mrs. Olsen some questions about writing, inspiration, and a whole host of other questions. She has some great insights to share. I had a great time getting to know her. Check out our interview below. Her answers are in bold.

Where is your hometown?
I live in Oldtown, ID.

PrintDiscovering True Love

By H.E. Olsen

“Rated with 5 stars on Goodreads and has made it on the hot new release best selling insparational and spirtiual list on Amazon!”

In Discovering True Love I tell, from childhood into adulthood, how I came to the understanding of what true love is. When I started this book it was just a devotional on true love. While I turned it into a memoir I saw a path spread out, from the very beginning,  creating a way before me. God called, and as an unknowingly trusting child, I blindly followed. While I look back at the beginning I can now picture my little childhood self spread little wings and try to take flight. I fall many times- learning to fly brought pain. Flying is not learned without falling first, but in order to fly we must not give in or give up.

During this journey I had no idea that I would end up here- where I am now- soaring in a current of peaceful winds overflowing with love and understanding. Choosing to finish this journey I find myself gliding in a breeze of completeness, no matter the circumstances.  You will watch, in your mind’s eye, as I find the lies I believe about love and replace them with truth. Writing this book brought me healing and strength as well as discovering the true meaning of love. I pray it will inspire and heal you too.

God Bless,

H.E. Olsen

Spiritual Warfare

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our battle in spiritual warfare can be hard to see. We need to fight against the flesh and reach for the Holy Spirit. It’s hard to hear the voice of the holy spirit in our soul when the flesh is so very loud with the I wants, have to haves, and I needs. Also with past pains and hurts. The flesh screams at us things it says are good and acceptable when they’re not. satan uses this to his advantage to try to come in-between us and God. God distances himself from us when we are living in the flesh because those who have entered his presence with an unclean heart have died. Jesus shed his blood as the ultimate sacrifice so we can have a relationship with God through the Holy Spirit. Through the blood of Jesus our heart is made clean. satan is loud with noise and chaos to prevent us from hearing the Holy Spirit. Fear is one of his greatest weapons. I’m going to share with you my testimony of being attacked by demons. This is not something I would tell everyone. Only a handful of people know this about me because I have felt that not many people would believe me. If it didn’t happen to me I’m not sure I would believe myself, but know I feel the need to share whether people believe me or not. I feel that someone might need to hear my story.

MY TESTIMONY OF BEING ATTACKED BY DEMONS

“I was in my early teens when one night, after being soundly asleep in my bed, I was woken up by being shaken. My whole body and bed were shaking. I thought I was dreaming at first. I even asked myself, ‘Am I dreaming?’ Now, if one has to ask oneself if they are dreaming then they are most likely not dreaming. I even pinched myself. When I realized I was fully awake I became scared and confused. I heard a low growly voice float up from under my bed calling my name, ‘Heather.’ I became so terrified that I was frozen. I had no idea what to do? I then recalled a Sunday school teacher telling me to call on the name of Jesus whenever I was afraid. I was definitely afraid! I put this to practice but as I went to cry out the name of Jesus I couldn’t speak. It took everything I had to force out the name of Jesus. Finally I yelled, ‘JESUS, JESUS, JESUS!’ –dead silence. Everything was at a stillness. My bed suddenly dropped. I was dumbfounded. I was confused about why this was happening to me. I couldn’t believe that it happened.

That morning I ran to my mom and told her all about what happened. At first she seemed concerned but then it was like watching a cloud of disbelief wash down her face. She told me that it was just a dream. It was no dream! I will never forget that experience for as long as I live.

My next attack was at youth group. I was around 18 and a few of us girls would show up early to pray before youth group started. We were in a school room praying and finding it hard to focus. We decided to turn off the light so we would stop being distracted. When we felt done we walked around the church to see if anyone showed up yet but hardly anyone was there so we went back to praying. When we got back to the room we noticed something strange. On the opposite wall, where the light from the hallway was shining, there was a shadow. This shadow didn’t belong there. We all saw it so it wasn’t just my imagination. The shadow was a form of a net. There was nothing there to cast this shadow. The air inside this room was extremely heavy and evil like. We decided to not go in. We closed the door and found another room to pray in.

I now know and understand the heaviness in that room. With my experiences since then I know that heaviness to be oppression. The net was a net of oppression cast directly at us. I want to take a moment to pray for the other girls who were with me, ‘Lord I pray that that net of oppression cast on these girls’ lives, in any shape or form, will be broken and destroyed, by the blood of Jesus- amen.’ (If you’re reading this, and need that prayer also, than pray it in your heart and believe it.)

The third attack happened when I was in Oregon. I was there to help take care of my Granny who had cancer and was going through chemo. I was sleeping in my dad’s old room. I heard my door squeak open and thought it was Granny coming for help. I was in between that sleep and awake stage. It was like I was in a trans state of some form. I knew and could tell that I was looking through the slits of my eyes. I looked over to the door expecting Granny to come in, but it was not Granny. It was a demon. It walked around my bed and came to sit next to me. It said in a low tormenting voice, ‘She is mine, you cannot have her!’ it then just laughed and laughed. I couldn’t move. This time I knew what to do. I knew that calling on the name of Jesus worked. So I quickly, and much more easily called out, ‘JESUS, JESUS, JESUS!’ –it was gone! I was fully awake.

I had no idea why I was being attacked. I didn’t know what else to do other than call out the name of Jesus. I didn’t know how to battle this level of spiritual warfare. I felt lost and confused. I started looking into and studying spiritual warfare. I’m growing in understanding.

Two years ago I went through counseling by a friend who decided to counsel me for free. My friend walked me through payers to overcome my generational demons. One day- not at night this time, my friend was having me say prayers to release me from my generational demons when I felt such heaviness on my chest. I couldn’t take it anymore so we decided to continue another day. Well, throughout that day my chest became heavier and heavier. I started to feel pressure on my brain. It felt like someone was squeezing my head. I thought to myself, ‘I’ll just pray in the spirit and rest in the Lord.’ As I opened my mouth to speak in tongues I grew in confusion. It was not the same. It didn’t sound the same or feel the same as when I usually pray in the spirit. I soon realized that whatever was coming out of my mouth was not of the Holy Spirit. I closed my mouth quickly. I called my friend who came over right away. My friend prayed over me until there was a release.

Just as heavenly beings have their own language, and can pray through us in this language, than why not the demonic also? This puts satan worship at a whole new level.

I now understand why I’ve been attacked so strongly. satan and his demons want to prevent me- prevent us all, from hearing the voice of the spirit. When we quiet ourselves enough to hear the Holy Spirit and start following the will of God we will be attacked. satan doesn’t want us to grow close to the Lord or to further His kingdom. When the attack is not as severe as I’ve been attacked, we can then be attacked by doubts and untruths. The people around us can also come against us in hate, through jealousies, anger, and other emotions- through this we can become bitter and blind by our own reacting emotions. Demons are hard at work, everywhere, stirring up hate and chaos. We give legal ground for the enemy to become attached to us through our actions created by our negative emotions and by what we allow into our lives that influence our choices. We can also have demons hanging on to our family line through generation to generation. They are called familiar spirits, but not only do we have familiar spirits we can, and most likely do, have generational curses caused by sins of our ancestors. Our battle ground against demons and curses is in prayer through faith and our weapons are the word of God, the blood of Jesus, and the name of Jesus. We need to repent, forgive, and not to forget to forgive ourselves- like I often do, so we can move forward. This is bruising the enemy’s head and allows us to defeat the demons. I hope this testimony has helped someone in some shape or form. God bless and much love.

I no-longer fear the dark, creatures, or demons for I know God is with me and His will shall reign. He is my strength and has given me authority over them through the name of Jesus. ~H.E. Olsen

Powerful Currents

 

trying pic 010

“This article WOW-ed me!”

I love sitting on a porch during a lighting storm with the breezes and winds whipping around me. The loud thunder shaking the house is exciting. The most beautiful part to me, and dangerous, is the lightning. Thinking of lightning I picture its energy residing in the earth flowing deep in currents. Then Lightning comes bursting from the ground and reaches the dark clouds in a blink of an eye. The world lights up with a bright blue light. Lightning has such powerful electricity that when it’s close I can feel my hair rise. I started thinking how God’s energy is also powerful. Could it be that the same currents in God’s energy be the same as lightning’s energy? This had me thinking of the Old Testament when Moses stood before God on Holy ground. I know he felt the energy, I bet his hair stood on end and if he touched someone he would have given the best electricity shock of a lifetime. I remembered reading how people fell down dead in the presence of God. Those that lived had to cleanse themselves of sin before entering His presence. I then thought of the people who have been struck by lightning. How some lived and some have died. Could it be a heart condition? Could it be that the ones purer in heart are the ones who survive and the ones with a darker heart die? An interesting thought- but who knows? God, through His energy, made the world- so wouldn’t there be something here to resemble that very same energy? When we watch lightning could we be seeing physical evidence that connects this world with the spiritual? I remember that there was a pillar of fire guiding Moses and God’s people out of bondage. Was that pillar of fire more of a lightning bolt or a blue-ish white fire flickering with electricity? I do know that the blue-ish white light of lightning shines brighter and reaches further than the warm glow of a fire. I don’t think the soft glow of a fire would have reached all of God’s people, but the blue-ish white energy light, Just as lightning, would. With these thoughts in my head for the next couple of days, I find myself reading about the energy creating electricity with positive and negative charges in the human body.

A month ago I just happen to buy a psychology book at a yard sale because of my interest in mental illness and behavioral psychology. I’m amazed how certain things seem to fall right into place for me. I’m still amazed that after all my questions on this subject, I find myself reading about the electro currents within the human body.

I started picturing the human body as a source of electrical currents. Electricity is created by some form of energy source. From whatever charges I feed my body it will create different levels of currents. The wellness of the human body, mental state, and spiritual state all depends on these currents. The human body, mental state, and spiritual state work together as one, Just like God the father, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three but untied as one. The body, mental, and spiritual are three different functions but feed off each other. Everything in our world is an echo of God’s world. Why do you think the Bible tells us to pray, “Let it be here on earth as it is in Heaven.” Our human bodies and human lives can resemble that which is meant for us in Heaven. We can echo our Heavenly forms.

Just as lightning is connected to the power of God the electro currents inside us can strongly connect us to Godly spirituality. Jesus is our plug-in. To find the right current we need to receive the energy of God. God’s energy is life, love, and light. It is holy and good. God’s energy brings positive charges that will feed into the currents of our lives. I’m not just talking about lifting hands and swaying back and forth, this is spiritual food and good for the soul, but we need to feed the mental form also. This is why the Bible tells us to look for the good in all situations. When we focus on the good in life we train our mind to see the good and be positive. Our physical form needs real healthy food and vitamins to be healthy. We become or are what we feed our body, the physical, mental, and spiritual.

What we feed our body will determine our health in the future. When we eat the right food, exercise in moderation- without over doing it, and feed our minds with good things- love and forgiveness, we won’t become so ill and sick. Our bodies won’t be so acceptable to disease. However, if we live on junk food our bodies react to it with negative currents. It can break down the human body where it will be hard to fight sicknesses and illnesses. The body won’t be getting all it needs to function properly. This in turn will send the mind into stresses, depressions, and struggles. This breaks the body down further. The negative current gets stronger. When the negative current gets this far it’s hard for the spirituality to find any form of peace. This is when we feel that God is nowhere in our lives. We can often call out, Why me!” or, “Where are you God!” By our own choices we can create a negative current were we block God from our lives. What we sew we will reap.

It doesn’t matter which function starts the process of creating negative currents, the other functions will soon follow. Our own mind-set can be a big factor in our depressions, struggles, and unhealthy lives. Depending on personalities, emotions, and how our mind has been trained we can fall into an unhealthy mental pattern that can keep going in circles. This is where we feel that we are on an emotional roller-coaster ride. Our currents are going up and down. While our mind is sending negative signals we can get the munchies, and we can block our spiritual energies. We need to reset our mind-set to a more positive electro wave. I have learned to ask emotions why? There were times in my past that someone’s actions would get me flustered, angry, or hurt. I have since realized that I’m not in charge of other people’s choices, words, or actions- even if directed at me. I am in charge of my choice to be more positive, or to wallow in the negative. I am in charge of what currents I allow to energize me. God has given all of us this choice. Satan will do his best to have his demons entice us to stay negative. I say entice because they play around allowing us to think things are good because they feel good or seem good to our human nature. Satan and his demons won’t give a choice. They like to control and power.

Satan wants the negative current to run strongly in the body. He wants to twist our God given choices to block God, just like he did with Eve in the Garden of Eden. He wants us to live in darkness. He wants us to be sickly and weak. He does his best to blind us to God’s truth. I pray that we will have the eyes to see, the ears to hear, a mind to fully understand God’s truth, and a mouth to boldly tell satan and his demons to get behind us by the blood of Christ. I also pray by the blood of Christ that those who read this will find the positive current to God’s energy and be connected spiritually to their Heavenly form.

Have a blessed journey!

Don’t Let Hate and Fear Control You

Be that light...
Don’t let your emotions control you, control your emotions….

I just recently watched a disturbing video that is continuing to bother me. When I’m bothered I have to write it out. This video is about Islam men kidnapping a mother and torturing her until death. This video is very hateful and evil. It also gives political views on Hillary. I’m not going to go into my own political views. I’m not writing this to stir up another political debate, but to discuss humanism and control.

While I watched this video and read the message I began to wonder if the sole purpose of this video was a threat or promise- maybe both. Obviously the man taking the video was in on it. How could he not be? He stood there while the men beat a mother of children- so the video says. The video also says it’s because of women’s rights and that if Hillary gets into office she will be letting these same men into the U.S. This got me to thinking on who added the words? Was it the same men who beat the poor mother or did someone else get a hold of this video and add the words? Was it a threat that this will happen if Hillary gets in office or a promise that Hillary will be part of this in some way or form? I know that some countries will hate the fact that a woman is president.

While I continued to watch I could feel the fear it was placing in me. I realized that this video has a double agenda. It was causing me fear in the people of that race. I know not all people who look like they do are bad. This caused my heart to break for those who will be condemned by hate and fear because of the way they look. This video is creating hate and fear all around. Through hate and fear people are easily controlled. We’ll lash out and create division. This video is demonically influenced.

I have a love, and can see beauty in every race and nation. I will not allow this to be destroyed. There’s already too much fear and hate swarming the Earth. This world is becoming so dark. I choose to be a light shining so bright that others may see. I choose to love with the love of God.

I am a woman, I’m a nobody to some and a somebody to others. I believe in Christ and I will do my best to live according to His ways. I’m not going to worry about who becomes president because whoever sits on that throne- God is on a higher throne. My trust and loyalty are with Him. He is greater than man. I know that evil people will fall hard, like Lucifer fell hard to Earth from Heaven. I will not allow satan to use man or any other form to try to control me through hate and fear.

Ezekiel 28:17-19

“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.

 “You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.”’”

Revelation 12:11 (NKJV)

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Revelation 20:10 (NKJV)

 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

Here is the video if you think you can handle watching it: Torture of a mother

My heart cries for all children, women, and men who are abused. I cry for animals also. Any form of torture makes me ill. I pray for safety to cover all those who need this prayer, in Jesus name.

Relationships, Marriage, and Divorce

loves tear 001

A couple Monday’s ago I was served with papers to appear at court concerning my younger Brother-in-laws kids. My Brother-in-law, who I don’t really get along with, and his Ex, who was enjoyable to be around but I never trusted, were never married. They lived with each other and had three beautiful blond haired and blue eyed dolls. Because the Ex left my Brother-in-law four years ago with my two nieces the kids were court ordered to be at my in-laws, where I live, for daycare. The Ex has since went back to my Brother-in-law about three times over the last three years and ended up pregnant with another child. My nephew is now three. This last year the Ex chose to move 50 miles away without communicating her plans, she even bought a new phone and ended all contacts with us a few months before she took the kids and left- one day the kids were here the next day they were gone. This place has been a home to those kids, a place of security from their own parent’s insecure worlds. Five days a week those kids were here from sunrise to sunset and sometimes after dark. They had their Papa, Nana, Uncle, Aunty, and cousins as a constant in their lives. The grandparents provided clothing and food and took care of the kids. The kids were healthy and happy here. The Ex had me served to try to prove that this place was unfit for her kids to justify what she did.

I have never been to court before but I guess I did alright. Sitting at the center of attention was a bit intimidating and having to talk into a microphone didn’t help any either. Most of you know that I have a bit of stage fright. The Ex’s lawyer did her job well. She tried to be intimidating, but to me she wasn’t intimidating at all. There’s an ex-drill sergeant at home who loves to interrogate often. I’m thankful for the practice.

Sitting on the stand I was shocked by the things the Ex was accusing the family of. It was obvious that she was grasping for straws. I now see the Ex as someone who is evil. She is someone who wants power, control, and money. She accused me of lying and I believe that she does believe this, but her facts were wrong or I just didn’t remember because she was dragging things up from so long ago- even before the kids were born. Whatever the case may be, I knew that she lied about a few things so for her to accuse me while she was doing it was hypocritical.

I was so angry by the time I was done that I sat out in the hall just mumbling. Then I started thinking about the kids. Parents going through separation often do not think about the kids. While they are fighting and bickering back and forth only thinking of themselves, wanting the power or money, they don’t see the hurt and pain the kids go through. Well, this aunt has watched her Brother-in-law’s kids and has seen a big unhealthy change in their personalities. The kids love their mom and their dad and they need both in their lives. Every family has problems- but we need to work through these problems not tare each other apart. This world is falling apart because the heart of this world resides in the family- the home. Broken families and broken homes means broken world. It’s a domino effect.

I’m going to share what I’ve learned on how an unhealthy relationship can affect everyone…

God has laid this subject on my heart some time ago but I wasn’t sure on how to go about sharing this topic. So many people are divorced, remarried, and living in an unhealthy relationship. I’m not going to give my own feelings about divorce but I’m going to share my thoughts and what the Bible says about Marriage, divorce, and such.

Genesis 2: 22-24

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

Marriage is not only a document, a piece of paper that binds two people together, marriage is a soul-tie between two people that unites them as one. This soul-tie is completely binding. Two halves become one whole.

Matthew 19: 4:6

 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

God didn’t put these guidelines in place to harm us but to protect us. He wants what’s best for us. With these guidelines we breathe life, but when we step out of these guidelines we bring death into our lives. A marriage is a form of a promise and a verbal commitment to each other besides a signed document. God frowns on broken commitments and promises. God doesn’t give these guidelines because He wants to be cruel. These guidelines are there to protect us from pain and suffering, from bringing curses into our lives.

There was one time I was watching my brother-in-laws kids, years ago. The youngest niece, who was 3 at the time, decided to be rebellious. It was winter time and there was a fire in the wood stove. She was standing by the stove and a look came over her face that said, “I have to touch!”

I looked directly at her and barked her name. I demanded, “Don’t touch that stove, it will hurt!”

She looked at me and gave me a smug and defiant look. She pointed her finger with a smirk and quickly touched the stove. She then cried out in pain.

By human nature we become rebellious and defiant. We want to follow our emotions and give God the finger. God gives us instructions on how to live a peaceful and good life but we want to touch the fire just like my niece. We then want to blame God for our pain after we made the choice to touch the fire.

Go back to the saying, “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Through the hardness of our hearts God allowed divorce. Divorce is to only occur when a spouse is unfaithful through sexual acts.

Malachi 2:16

“For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, For it covers one’s garment with violence,” Says the Lord of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”  

God hates divorce because it causes a tearing in the soul. It brings pain, hatred, and jealousies. It causes a negativity that surrounds the whole family, especially the children. This negativity is not easily shaken off. It can torture the soul on both sides by a single act- A choice to divide. This choice can echo down from one generation to the next. Certain characteristics can be embedded into a personality that was used as a defense mechanism. This will be passed down and certain unhealthy characteristics can cause physical illnesses. This is called a generational curse. It can pass to the third and fourth generation. Don’t ever think that life is your own. Our choices affect everyone that is connected to us and our future generations.

Matthew 5: 32

But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

I believe that God allowed divorce over sexual immorality because through a spouse being unfaithful the negativity is a lot stronger than the act of divorce itself. In this case divorce is the lesser of the two evils. Living with someone who is unfaithful can completely break the spirit. In a relationship where both spouses are unfaithful, and seem to be alright with this lifestyle, they are living outside of God’s will and will bring death through emotions or sickness in some form.

Every act outside of God’s will brings a curse. This includes sexual acts outside of marriage whether living with each other or not and much more. Furthermore, if we cause an offence we are outside of God’s will, but offences must come.

Matthew 18:7

Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!

In our world people are easily offended. I share this scripture because through divorce and separation offences come in tidal waves. I also know that living with an unfaithful spouse causes such an offense that it can bring someone to suicidal depression. It breaks my heart that marriage means so little to many. A marriage is supposed to represent the foundation of God’s perfect order. When it’s broken it isn’t of that order.

I want to look at, “Whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.” I now that there are many re-married people out there. From the first marriage a couple is united as one in a soul-tie. Even though they have made the decision to divorce the soul-tie still exists in a way. When someone marries a divorcee they are marrying someone with baggage. The past will be intertwined into this relationship. There will be competitions, unsure feelings, jealousies on all sides, and more offences. Plus, children who are involved will learn to play the parents against each other, feel forgotten, and struggle with being accepted in some form or way.

I know I sound like doomsday but not all is lost. Relationships can be put back on track. Remember the woman at the well-

John 4: 7-

A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.

Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”

Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”

Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”

 The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.”

Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”

The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”

Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”

Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.

 

John 8:10-11

 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

Wherever you’re lives are right now you don’t have to leave the person you’re with. If you want your life and relationships to breathe life and not death then repent and ask for forgiveness for the past mistakes- go and sin no more. Pray for wisdom to bring everyone into a healthy relationship, including past relationships. Build your relationships up with positive words and actions. Become a united front for the children who are involved in broken homes. No marriage is perfect, life isn’t perfect, but we need to do our best and to be our best. We need to love and inspire.

I have been really struggling with a heavy heart these last few weeks. This is not what I usually do but I’m going to rant a little- Family is important! Your whole family is a tree. I’m not talking about a normal family tree that show’s how you all are connected. I’m talking about a spiritual tree that lives and breathes. Every person in the family is responsible to keep this tree healthy and alive. It can take one family member to make the tree suffer, but- it can also take one family member who knows love to heal the tree.

Every family member is a root to this tree. Whatever is absorbed by the root becomes part of the tree. There may be some family members who feed hate and bitterness into this tree. This will cause some branches to die. When this happens the family members that have become the strong healthy roots need to lovingly prune back the dead branches to allow new growth. This tree will only survive if you work together, support each other, be there for each other when you need to, and to give time and space when needed. Time and space allows growth.

The family members who love, forgive, are peaceful, joyful, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and long-suffering – in working things out, will keep the tree alive. They are the gardeners. I see so many posts about if you don’t like the situation then run, if you don’t like the person then leave, and if you don’t like the path you’re on then choose a new one. What if God is using the situation, person, or path to mold your character? What if he’s trying to refine you into a jewel? If you run what becomes of it? Not only that- but what if you are the one needed in that life of the person or family member that you don’t like? What if you were placed in someone’s life because God saw that you have what they need to grow or heal? When we run we prevent the work of God. If you neglect and run from your garden it will die. Jesus did not run from the cross. He was tortured, called names, and abused. He stayed- we are to be Christ like. Think about your family members and how you’ve acted toward them. Only you can answer for yourself.

If you hold any bitterness, unforgiveness, and hate toward a family member it doesn’t just affect you. It affects all the family close to you and even some who are not so close. When family lets you down it hurts the worst. When they fight among themselves around you it creates frustration and the feeling of abandonment. The family tree quivers and shakes out of distress and leaves fall. Families need to heal and become strong again, whether if they are broken or torn apart- Divorced or remarried, this just means more people added to the family tree. We all need each other in some way or form.

Love and heal your family today!

I Can Walk On Water

13518191_1812903758939641_168909474_o

By H.E. Olsen

Matthew 14: 22-33

I’m listening to a song about walking on water. This song takes me back to when I lived with my parents on a river lot. I remember being a little girl trying to feel enough faith in me so I could walk on the water. I wanted to be just like Jesus. Of-course it failed. As a child I thought my faith was lacking. As an adult I see the meaning of Jesus walking on water so differently. It’s not actually about physically walking on water to me anymore. The way I see it now is more beautiful and inspiring then actually walking on water- although being able to physically walk on the water would be fun.

In my mind I can see clouds turning, wind blowing, and the stormy sea wavering up and down while Jesus strolls on the water to the boat. He is calm and at peace. He stands strong in the midst of this storm. Through this action Jesus is trying to show us how to live. He is trying to inspire us. There is more to this story than just walking on water.

Peter decided he wanted to walk on the water and meet Jesus. My kind of spontaneous thinker! I would have done the same. I would have thought, “Awesome! He’s walking on the sea. I want to do that too!” But Peter didn’t last very long. He started to struggle and he sank. Jesus had to pull him up.

With our human emotions it is very easy to sink. Life and people can pull us down through hurtful acts and our own fear. Our frustration of what we believe is not right or fair can also drag us down. We allow the ugliness of our world to sink us into the sea of destruction.

Cry out! Seek help! Jesus is waiting for us. Through Him we have the power to rise. All we have to do is reach for Him so he can pull us out.

Life is a stormy sea with the wind tossing hardships about. We can sink in misery or we can stand in the center of it all with a calm spirit that’s at peace. We can stay above the sea of emotional negativity. We can stand in strength and power against our hardships and struggles. We don’t have to allow them to toss us around or blow us down. It’s all in knowing and understanding our strength and power that we have in Jesus. Through this we can spiritually walk on water.

I went through my own hardship that sunk me to the bottom of the sea. Even though I was at the bottom Jesus still heard my cry. He pulled me to the light of the sky and saved me from self-destruction. I was mentally-ill but now I’m mentally whole. I am now walking on water with Jesus by my side. The storms and wind whipping around me no longer oppress me. My soul is still and I’m at peace.

I hope and pray that this post was enlightening and inspiring. I would love to get comments and your own personal story of overcoming a hardship. Thank you for reading!

My Sexual Dreams and Biblical Understanding

heather pics olsen 013I have been confused about sexual dreams since I was a teen. When I was seventeen I had, what I believed to be a nightmare, a dream of being sexually attacked. In my dream I entered an alleyway from the side of a building during daylight. Two tall men who I did not recognize approached me. They seemed unearthly but not evil. I was grabbed by one. I panicked and started kicking. The other one pulled off my underwear and pants. He sent his hand deep up inside me. I felt completely violated. He then pulled out his clenched hand. I felt shamed. He opened his hand and showed me two black dots that resembled clots. Understanding flooded me that they weren’t harming me but helping me. I took my eyes off the clots to look again at the strangers only to find that they vanished. I awoke totally embarrassed and confused about this dream. Dreams like this, among many others that I’ve experienced, caused me to start studying the world of dreams.

I have found that dreams are a window, or door, into the spiritual world. Many things in a dream are symbolic to our personal lives- past, present, and even our future. Through all my studying I now understand this dream. Those clots resemble generational curses. Clots clinging to my soul from conception. They were a part of me and seemed normal. My soul felt violated  when they were exposed. Exposing these curses brought the feeling of shame. But as I studied and grew with understanding I am no longer embarrassed or confused. A year ago I went through counseling and read the book Prayers that Rout Demons. There is a part in this book that rebukes generational curses. While I read this part and prayed I saw a white flash moving up the umbilical cord and knew that the generational curse was destroyed. My whole life I got cold-sores during the changes of each season. The season change somehow would trigger the cold-sore to come out. I have been cold-sore free now for a whole year. There’s one clot, I’m not sure about the other one yet.  But, whatever it is, I know it’s gone. Praise God!

A generational curse is something that is past from one generation to the next. My mother and grandmother also have cold-sores, as well as other family members. Generational curses can be depression- Just realized that this is the second clot, amazing how God brings us to see and know. Depression is strong in my family. I no longer fight depression. I haven’t struggled with it for a full year. 🙂 But continuing on- Generational curses can be bipolar depression, any type of depression- any form of mental illness, it can be a physical illness, and it can also be a characteristic trait- anything that’s been passed down. So, I now understand this dream that seemed sexual but in reality was a dream of healing. On to the next dreams.

Within the last few years I’ve had dreams  where my husband was cheating on me. I first thought that this was because of my fear of him finding someone else and leaving me. This would anger me, bring me to frustration, and make me feel sad and vulnerable. This was not it at all. Through my research and studies I now realize that this resembles the fact that he was connecting to others better than he was connecting to me.  He was putting people before me, and he does tend to do this.

Let’s take a look on how the Bible views sex. First of all, God created sex. Sex is a physical action that brings two people together to spiritually become one. The two souls marry through the act of sex. This brings connection and a bond. God created this act to be good and a blessing. Which brings me to my next and last sexual dream. I was in a deep sleep the other night when I dreampt about having sex with my husband. This dream was so real that when I woke up I couldn’t tell if it actually happened or if it was a dream.  At first, because of the intensity, I thought, “Was I being attacked by a demon?” I thought about the dream and there was nothing evil about it. I didn’t feel an evil presence. I have come across some articles that say sexual dreams are evil.  I strongly disagree. They can be evil, but not all sexual dreams are evil.

So, after deep thought and prayer, I realized that this last dream was showing me that my husband’s connection to me will grow strong. That through the intensity of this dream I was being shown that our bond will be powerful. This is a good thing.

While I was studying on this subject I also learned that everyone, at some point, has a sexual dream. I also learned that some may have a dream where they are sexual in some form or way with a sibling, or of the same sex, and maybe even a parent. Don’t let these dreams fool you. Don’t be ashamed. This doesn’t mean that you secretly are harboring these lustful feelings. Remember dreams are symbolic. Think of the relationship you have with the person your having a sexual experience with in your dream. Depending with the relationship the dream may be showing you that there are unGodly soul ties, bonds, connections, and such. It all depends on the dream and your situation with the other person. Other things like numbers, colors, what you feel, and animals are also symbolic with hidden messages. These can bring further understanding. I agree with some, and disagree with some, of the article in the link above. I do believe that sex even in dreams need to hold to biblical view to symbolize that we are living in truth and goodness. When we are having sex outside of marriage in our dream, we are being shown unGodliness in that relationship. This is not a bad thing but a blessing. Through your dream you are being shown the area’s that need to be brought to repentance, forgiveness, and healing. Then there are those dreams, like the first one I shared, where they seem sexual but aren’t.

Before, I would have been way to shy to share these dreams. But, wanting people to see the real me, I realize that I need to share. I need to share because I want to help others to understand. I want to give hope and inspiration.

A Prayer to Conquer Land from the Enemy

13413885_1807131846183499_2117866836_nPicture in your mind a castle with high towers. With every castle there are lands and borders. There are fruit trees and gardens, a water source that could be a well or a stream. There are animals and people who look to you for support and leadership.

The castle is you- your inner self. Every wall inside your castle is placed by the choices you’ve made as well as the sin you’ve allowed into your life. Some rooms can be light-filled and airy; but other rooms are dark and hiding demons. Through fear, jealousy, hate, unrighteous anger, all unrighteous behavior, and negative emotions the demons have created walls and found strongholds in your castle. This destroys your peace, causes illness, and can control you in areas that prevent the fullness of your calling.

The land around your castle represents your dreams, gifts, and Godly desires. The borders around these lands are supposed to protect your dreams, gifts, and Godly desires. But, through neglect these borders become weak and the enemy sneaks in to penetrate and cause disruption, division, and destruction- the triple D’s. Through this you’ll find un-satisfaction and disappointment. All the while you sit and cry about how unfair life is. It’s very human to tend to blame God when ‘you’ are at fault. Through depression you let your fruit and all that is edible to go bad. Your well runs dry and the people around you, according to their own emotions, will either point fingers, or try as they may, to help the way they know how. But nothing will help until you realize you need to take command and fight back.

Through being blind to the presence of the enemy, they have been feeding off your emotions and the emotions of those close to you. They have been using the negative emotions to create disturbances, they draw these emotions out until they cause you to react and then cause chaos all around. With the enemy now creating the triple D’s amongst your family and friends they will find high places to reside. They will place themselves in your towers through your negative emotions. I have found that the emotions that give them the most power are hate, jealousy, and depression.

It is up to you to make the choice and take back your land. You need to take a stand. Wipe away your tears and say, “Enough is enough!”

The first step is to prepare for battle. This is done by admitting your sin, speaking it out loud, repent of it, seek and ask for forgiveness, and then rebuke all demons associated to each sin. Rebuke all guilt, shame, and condemnation. This will crack and break the enemy’s strongholds. Ask Jesus to pour his blood upon you, your doorways, and your land through the Holy Spirit. Through the shedding of His blood you have the power to overcome the enemy- Rev. 12:11

The second step is to ask for protection in the Blood of Christ and though the Holy Spirit.

Now that you have weakened the enemy, you are ready to say this prayer to take back your land

“Lord, I praise you and lift you up to be the most high. God, you are my God and I worship you. I repent of the sins that have allowed the enemy to sneak in and penetrate my land. I pray, through the blood of Christ make me clean and rid me of evil. Abolish the enemy’s plans for my life. Break down the enemy’s fort and castle they’ve built against you in myself, in my land, and all that is in my land. Beat down every wall the enemy has built in me and around me that gives them power and safety from your fire, lord. Cast down all demons that have placed themselves in high places. Destroy their towers. Overthrow their kingdom they’ve built in my life and send them back to hell, in the blood of Christ.”

“Lord, cast out all demons that have found a stronghold in me and my land. I pray that you, oh Lord, will send your Angels to chase and torment them as they flee. Confound the enemy in their schemes. Bring them to confusion, shame, and disappointment. Smite all who are in my land that stand against your will in my life.  Break apart all demons that have found strength in numbers against me. Scatter them far from each other and cut off their communication. Fight and overcome the enemy, Lord, through your blood.”

“Lord, help me to prevail and bring my land to safety. Send your Holy Spirit and the host of Heaven to consume my land and myself. Restore my borders and make them strong. Bring my land to an abundance of life. I pray that your refreshing water will flow in the low places and fill my lands well full to overflowing. I pray that all plants and trees will be of good food and that there will be plenty for all who are on my land, family, friend, or stranger. I pray that your power and might sit on the high places. I pray for your love to be at my center. Let your love be the heart of my land and I accept and receive your love, in Jesus name…”

You will now experience a change. It could be today, tomorrow, or in the weeks to come. This is just the beginning. As you move forward you may feel strong resistance and people around you will begin to be hateful. You need to remember that this is a battle. The demons will use what they can to stand against you, including the people around you that have given the enemy permission in some way or form to enter their own castle and land. It’s a battle of old, between castles and lands, Lords and Ladies. You need to be persistent and endure until the battle is won- prayer is our greatest weapon. You need to grow in the knowledge of satans tactics and devises. You need to separate yourself with the evil affairs of this life. Do not stress but have peace. God is fighting this battle for you now that you’ve asked and have given it to Him. Have patience and trust Him. Also, once your battle is won, you can use all that you have to help win the battles of other castles. You will have the knowledge and understanding to help those around you to overcome.

Your faith has made you well… (We are made well according to our own FAITH. But remember that faith without works is dead. It’s a heart condition. Speak life, Live making Godly choices, open your heart to others, and you will live.)
