What Can I Do For You?

IMG_0345I’ve been doing some ministry lately via Skype and Face Time. I used to do quite a lot through instant messaging and have done some over the phone. Skype and FaceTime is working really well and people are really happy with the results. Everyone always says the same thing immediately after a session – that they feel lighter. I almost always hear from them a few days or weeks later and they often tell me they feel happier, better able to cope with things. Sometimes they’re eager for another session; for some, one session does the trick. They come to me unable to rid themselves of guilt, or anger, or sadness. They’re wounded through neglect, rejection, abuse, trauma (physical or otherwise). Some have physical ailments attached to their emotional injuries which sometimes lessen or disappear altogether once the background issues are resolved. It’s extremely rewarding to see the change that comes over people during a session. They even look different. I’ve watched countless faces turn from ashen to glowing in only a few minutes. For one woman, after about a 30 minute session, even her hair looked better! Her friends were amazed at the immediate change.

If it sounds like I’m bragging, let me say that I really don’t know what I’m doing, but the Creator does, and I do know how to listen to the Creator’s voice. And it’s not even necessary for you to believe there is a Creator to be be helped.

If you would like to see what a session with me might do for you, let me know. You have nothing to lose by it. The service is free; I will never ask you for money or anything else (well, maybe a testimonial). I can provide a link for donations, but that would be totally up to you. I travel all over the country (soon, the world) offering these services at no charge. The donations help to get me there.  (Note: On May 5, I and my partner in ministry, Phil Wyman will be traveling to Iceland and the UK. This is a seven week missions/ministry trip after which we return to the States for some more planned outreach events, including Burning Man and Haunted Happenings in Salem, MA, where we live. Any donations we receive help to make this happen. We typically go broke doing these things, and I’m not complaining. My only complaint is that we can’t do more. Your contribution, however small, will help me do more. Just know that if you need help, there is no requirement or obligation).

Feel free to contact me. I’d love to meet with you.

How I (sometimes) Pray

4-up on 12-3-14 at 6.36 PM #8I don’t know when it happened. And if I had known it was going to, I think I would have mistaken the Holy Spirit for the devil. Not that that would have been the first time. But I’m stalling, because I’m trying to write while eating some really good meatloaf. Never mix writing with eating really good meatloaf.

Some friends and I were having a conversation about prayer recently. We were discussing some of our personal disappointments associated with prayer – how the answers we’re looking for when we pray are very often not the answers we get – if we can detect an answer at all.

That’s when I realized it had happened.

Somewhere along the line, I had given up in despair any hope of God changing whatever circumstance I happened to be asking Him (in great power and faith, of course!) to change. Not that He NEVER changed them. But not usually.

I think it’s because I’m so immature. Really. I am.

It’s not that He isn’t answering my prayers. He is. But His ways are not my ways.

One of the first things I learned about God, once I got past my “Super Christian!” stage, was that I’m not Him. I was kinda relieved to find that out.

Rather than change my circumstances, God changes me. Or, at least, He guides me through the process of learning how to navigate gracefully the circumstances I go to Him complaining about.

Did I say gracefully? Well. I’m ashamed to say that not even God gets everything He wants. Thank you, Father, for being so patient!

I’m really, really thankful that He hasn’t given up on me. I would have. But His ways are not my ways.

Anyway, the way I (sometimes) pray is, I just talk to God about what’s on my mind. That’s all I wanted to say.

Peace and prosperity to you, the reader!
