Gain Understanding and Insight into Your Problems and Illnesses

It has now been proven that how we choose to think and react/respond to our world, directly effects us!  We are not “bound to our DNA”. We can, though conscious thought, create either health or disease in our bodies, minds, and spirits.  Not all thoughts are our own, and there are three distinct sources of their origin revealed in the Holy Scriptures. There are also three distinct, parts of our being. I believe that ALL three areas need to come into balance for us to thrive. My website and recordings will help you to separate yourself from toxic thoughts and the diseases they create. Having been personally healed and delivered, my understanding of the spiritual dimension of thought will help you separate yourself from the source of the toxic thought patterns they represent. 
​I am thrilled that so many doctors and scientists, pastors and spiritual leaders are coming forward with the “mind-body connection” and even the “spirit-mind-body connection”. But most spiritual direction is passive.  In my experience, the kingdom of God is taken by violence, and the violent take it by force.  We cannot be passive against Satan’s kingdom and expect freedom from torment.  We are to be submitted to God only.
Let’s take up the sword of the spirit and 
wield it with precision.

The Fruit of the Spirit (i.e., Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control – Gal 5:22 NIV) are not only an essential part of our maturity as believers, they are also essential to our health. Mankind has known intuitively that there is an association between negative emotional states and ill health, but it is only in recent years that science has produced the evidence that these emotional states have direct and very specific chemical and biological consequences that effect on our quality of life and indeed the number of our days. 

Importantly, science is confirming – using different technical terms and language – that the opposites of the Fruit of the Spirit are in fact Roots of Disease. Our separation from God, others and ourselves produces fear, guilt and shame (Gen 3:10-12 MKJV) which the scientific community prefer to call anxiety and depression. These then give rise to persistent states of Unlovingness, Sadness, Conflict, Impatience, Unkindness, Bitterness, Unfaithfulness, Harshness and Self-indulgence. These Roots of Disease are being linked increasingly to a large number of chronic, incurable and deadly ailments, including heart disease and cancer. Importantly, the associations are not random nor are we helpless victims. 

To understand how the Roots of Disease affect our health we need to know the basics about the formation of our bodies: 
Our body is literally woven together from three primary tissue layers in the embryo – ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm (Ps 139:15-16 AMP). 

• The ectoderm forms the brain and nerves, the skin and the electrical control of the heart and blood vessels 
• The mesoderm forms the musculoskeletal system, heart and kidneys and, 

• The endoderm forms the liver, various endocrine organs, and intestines.

It seems that there is a correlation between the Roots of Disease and these three layers and their respective organs.
These associations are not absolute, watertight divisions, but there is enough medical evidence and even common knowledge to support the pattern. 

The ectoderm is affected primarily by Unlovingness, Sadness, and Conflict. Specifically:
• Unlovingness affects our skin (including psoriasis, eczema, and premature ageing)
• Sadness affects the function of our brain (including depression, forgetfulness, Parkinson’s Disease, etc.), and
• Conflict affects the nerves regulating our blood vessels and heart (including heart palpitations and migraine)

The mesoderm is affected by Impatience, Unkindness, and Bitterness. Specifically: 
• Impatience (hostility – Type A trait) affects our heart (including high cholesterol and heart disease)
• Unkindness affects our kidneys, and
• Bitterness affects our musculoskeletal system and bone marrow (including arthritis and cancers) 

The endoderm is affected by Unfaithfulness, Harshness and Self-indulgence. Specifically:
• Unfaithfulness affects our liver (including Hepatitis B & C)
• Harshness affects parts of our endocrine system (including thyroid problems)
• Self-indulgence affects our intestines (including obesity)

The purpose of showing these associations is not to judge or condemn those with chronic illness. Rather we should all realize that our call to live by the Fruit of the Spirit is also vital to our bodies as it is to our Spirit and Soul. From a ministry perspective we have found that when people are struggling with diseases in specific parts of their body, it is literally health to their bodies when we bless their spirits with the Fruit of the Spirit for that particular area:

Our brain and nerves, the skin and the electrical control of the heart and blood vessels respond readily to Love, Joy and Peace.
Our musculoskeletal system, heart and kidneys and immune system respond to Patience, Kindness and Goodness.
Our liver, various endocrine organs, and intestines respond to Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Discipline.

We hope that this revelation may bless you and motivate you to bless others with the Fruit of the Spirit; it is a tree of life to our bodies.
