Going back to my story, where it involved a little deliverance session, time went on. I continued to press into God for answers. I documented dreams that I swore were so real over the next year and 4 of them are showcased here.
The enemy will try to hinder your progress as you walk into the light. As you get closer to God and pursue Him, you will reach road blocks. It is also very well known that satan does not want people to know that he exists. That is a great ploy as you can see that lots of Churches, even a Christian Church will not talk about the demonic realm nor equip the members for spiritual warfare. I remember reading the bulletin at my Church with an ad that said “Do you know someone or are you dealing with anxiety and depression? Come to this seminar to see how you can cope.” Sorry, I don’t want to cope. I want to be FREE.
One of my out of town friends is an assistant Pastor and one weekend, he came into town to preach at a local Church about the fact that the Holy Spirits dwell in our hearts (if you receive Him). Yes, what Christian DOESN’T know this? But if you actually think about that, how is that not the most awesome thing in the world? The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is the same Spirit that resides in all of us.
For a long while, I have been contemplating on having a second child, however my illness had prevented me from doing that. Mainly because you can pass Lyme onto your baby, and you had to take all these meds to prevent that and I wanted no part of doing that all over again. Plus, will I be even fit to care for a baby at age 39? I felt that I was too old and too tired.
After listening to that word from my friend, I pondered that message before going to bed and was so happy. That night, I had a dream that we had a baby boy and named him Aniah. I have never even heard of that name before, nor did I even like that name, nor did I even know the correct spelling of it, but I when I woke up, I looked it up.
Seriously? Sometimes you have to be just in total amazement and know that there are no coincidences.
My Interpretation: That God keeps His promises that He will protect us and keep us safe from any disease or sickness. Go and read Psalm 91, it’s all there. This dream to me meant that I could have a baby and not worry about the outcome. That he/she will be safe and healthy.
August 6, 2014 – A Financial Boost
I was reading a book called “How to work with Angels in your Life“, by Kevin Basconi. Nearing the end of the book, there was an activation prayer that would help you increase the angelic ministry upon your own life.
I had be really wanting to go and see Todd White preach and found out that he was going to be in San Francisco on the day of my 14th Anniversary. I thought that this would be an amazing trip to go sightseeing as well as attend this conference. However the cost for this trip was alot. We had also just given $500 to our niece to help her with schooling, so I let the idea go. The flights alone was roughly $1430.
Later that week, I received a cheque in the mail for the amount of $1469.65 from a governement tax refund. My immediate thought was not to do the home reno I have been wanting, or buy new clothes, but the fact that this amount was almost near to the dollar for the cost of the flights. I immediately asked God, if this was Him hinting for me to go, to give me another sign. Twenty minutes later, I received a text from a friend telling me he was coming over to give me $500 for a job referral.
Like I said, no coincidences.
My Interpretation: God knows what is in our hearts. Sometimes you are rewarded when you are faithful.
August 30, 2014 – An Angelic Healing
On July 1, 2014, something happened. I noticed a huge rash on my leg that appeared to be a typical bulls eye rash. We were at a horse track. If you have been following along, here’s the timeline:
2010 – 2012 – I got mysterious symptoms which no Doctor could diagnose.
2012 – 2013 – Diagnosed with Lyme Disease and went on hardcore antibiotics.
November 2013 – God intervention that required me to get off meds.
July 2014 – I got a bulls eye rash on my leg indicative of a re-infection of Lyme.
I can’t go into the details of what Lyme is and the diagnosis and all (which you can find in my initial blog here), but what this bulls eye rash meant was BAD NEWS. I yet again, had to go to ER, argue with doctors, try to get appropriate meds, take them for a month, barf from the side effects, etc. Not to mention that 9 other people were with me at the time of this potential bite and none of them got bit by any bug.
So I took the 3 weeks of meds and I called it quits. I had to realize that this was yet another attack from the enemy. I could either believe the lie that was upon me, or I can declare the truth as it was written.
Then, something incredible happened to me only 3 weeks later in a dream.
We were at a Disney resort (we travel here alot with our son). This beautiful girl came to pray for me but for some reason, my husband had interrupted. I turned around to get her attention again but a cleaning person blocked the way. I was going to let her go, because frankly I was just tired of all the healing sessions, but a voice in me told her to come back and so I got her attention. She had long brown hair and a purple dress. I asked her to pray for me and she said “What is wrong?” with this genuine concern in her eye. She closed her eyes, put her hand on my forehead and I had said “I have been battling a sickness….” and she shhh’d me. Then I thought, here we go again, another prayer that is not going to work. And then BAM, an energy force went through my body from my neck down to my toes. It was so strong that it froze me. It lasted about 5-15 seconds. I could NOT move.
She stopped praying and when I opened my eyes, my son was at my side. I said to him “What happened!? What happened when she prayed for me?” He was standing at the bottom of these set of stairs/bannister and said while pointing to the air very excited, that “all these serpents were flying, flying everywhere mommy!”. I said “Really?” He said “Yes”, and “they were winding here and here“, making hand gestures in S-shapes. The dream was so incredibly real and then it woke me up. I looked at the clock and it said 2:24 pm. I thought that when I was talking to my son, that I was awake, but I was not. It was a dream within a dream (Inception anyone?). I remember wondering who the girl praying for me was, because usually you have to be careful about those things, but seeing her face re-assured me that she was a relatively well known healing minister which put me at ease.
When I really woke up, I laid there as if coming off a roller coaster. I remembered every detail that happened and documented it. I had been having some stomach pain for previous 2 days which was gone. Also, my hands did not feel shaky anymore for the next week. This was it. This is when I was healed. I had to claim it and not look back. This was my time stamp.
Is the angelic and demonic realm real?
Even when I was a very young Christian, I didn’t fully understand what all of this meant. Is there a realm that we cannot see? I always associated dabbling in the unseen realm to be demonic. I used to have a fascination with ouija boards and astral projection. But like with everything, there is good and there is bad. There is light and there is darkness.
It depends on where your source is. If you are trying to talk to the dead through a medium then that is demonic. If you are preforming healings and miracles through a witch doctor, that would be demonic. Those sources are considered darkness using a counterfeit spirit. However, if you use the Holy Spirit as your guide, that is light. If you use Jesus as your source, you can go no wrong.
For good reads on the unseen realm, I highly recommend these 4 books, all of which I read.
The Veil, this is an excellent book and very easy to read. I think I finished it in 2 days. Get it in the kindle version so you don’t have to wait. It is well worth the 2 Starbucks coffee’s that it costs.

Seeing in the Spirit Made Simple by Praying Medic
Synopsis: Seeing in the Spirit Made Simple provides clear, simple, biblical instruction that will help you see into the invisible world of the spirit. It is the second book in The Kingdom of God Made Simple series; a self-study course designed to train believers how to live out the fullness of the life offered to us as heirs of God’s kingdom.
The predominant view in the church today holds that seeing in the spirit is a rare gift given to only a few special people, or an anointing we must seek. With the same straightforward, down-to-earth style used in Divine Healing Made Simple, the author holds this view up to the light of scripture, and suggests that it has no biblical basis. Rather than being a gift given by God to only a few people, seeing in the spirit is an innate ability we all possess, which lies undeveloped in most of us. Through prayer, training and exercise, this ability can be awakened and used by virtually anyone. The author provides Bible-based teaching along with dozens of testimonies and illustrations. There are also practical exercises at the end of the chapters to help develop your ability to see in the spirit.
Praying Medic and his wife have only recently learned how to see in the spirit. Come along as they re-trace the path they’ve taken that has led them to see angels, demons and the heavenly realms. Whether you’re a seasoned seer or a newbie, you’ll learn from the experiences and insights they share. Not only will you develop better spiritual eyesight, but your relationship with God will grow too.
