How are you doing?
Have you been feeling like nothing is working, nothing will work, it’s all hopeless and you might as well quit? Everything’s overwhelming and just too hard.
Yeah…it’s been going around, or rather in the atmosphere.
I got hit with it pretty hard earlier this year and thought it was just me. I just tried working harder to see if I couldn’t push through and get ‘er done anyway. I pushed myself until I hit a wall…
Not literally, fortunately. But, thankfully a friend and life coach brought it to my attention. I got off the hamster wheel, and the rest has been delightfully healing! I started to realize that lots of other people I know have been similarly struggling. Oh, the details are different, but there’s this same spiral downwards that sucks the life and hope out of you. I just talked to someone else today who is going through a similar thing.
It seems to be attacking people especially in the realm of destiny. That thing that normally is your greatest gift and joy – has become a burden and a drag. It’s too hard. It’s never going to get better. You should just quit, right?
Don’t let the lies win.
The odd thing about this particular attack, is that it seems to be able to blind your eyes to the truth about your situation. You’re not able to see the progress that’s been made, or how well you’re really doing. It’s the craziest thing… I looked at the same black and white numbers on a page and saw failure, when they don’t say that at all – I’m actually doing quite well. But I couldn’t see it.
At least, I couldn’t see it until I got away from busyness and into rest. Then the light of hope began to dawn.
I still have a ways to go to recover my physical strength, but I’ll tell you this: my joy and hope are back. I didn’t even realize how joyless I had become, until the joy started coming back. My job now is to continue to get my strength back and to not lose sight of the lessons I’ve learned; to continue to allow for rest and relaxation so that hopelessness can’t get a foothold again.
As I said at the beginning, hopelessness is in the atmosphere – which means that it’s like a broadcast that your spirit and soul hear that your ears don’t. It sounds like your voice, but it’s not…it’s the enemy – the one who’s job it is to steal, kill, and destroy. If you like, you can pray the following prayer over yourself or your friends and family. Or pray one like it. The exact words don’t matter as much as being aware of what’s coming at you and knowing you have the authority to send it back. Feel free to add in there anything that you’re sensing.
I see you hopelessness and overwhelm. You are not mine, and I refuse to partner with you. I break you off of me and I revoke any agreement that I’ve made with you. I cast you to the cross of Jesus, and I place the blood of Jesus between all of that and me. I reverse and correct all effects of this hopelessness and overwhelm, and I ask you Father, to fill me with your hope and courage. Please give me wisdom and revelation to know how to move forward in the path where you’ve placed me. I receive Your truth that there is always hope, and that You have given me a good destiny that I can move forward in and towards. I thank you for your peace, hope, and joy. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Some other things that you might find helpful to gain new hope, and to reinforce the hope that you gain:
My friend Seneca at Freedom-Flowers has a “Tomorrow” flower essence that rebuilds lost hope and eases anxiety about the future. Helps you to receive insight about the path you are on and helps you to grab hold of opportunities by shutting down cynicism and apathy. You just put a few drops in whatever you’re drinking, or under your tongue.
Another friend, Del at Healing Frequencies Music has a new album out called New Hope. I’ve been listening to it softly at night, but all day every day might be fabulous! It’s also available on iTunes and will hopefully be up on Amazon soon!

Family get togethers are not necessarily the happy and joyous occasions that advertisers would like us to think that they are. Our family, those who should love us most, can often be our source of greatest pain. Often we find that patterns of behavior repeat themselves over and over again – and as we are gathered with our family, we notice them more clearly.
A part of many different inner healing protocols and methods is something that goes by different names. Generally I use the phrase “Generational Work”, but I’ve heard Ancestral Cleansing, Bloodline Clearing, among others. As far as I know, it is all based on the idea that the sins of our fathers (and mothers) can negatively impact us today.
You can see this the most clearly when there is a strong family history of abuse or alcoholism. Those seem to be the classic cases. It can also be true that there’s a family history of poverty or anger or even physical issues. This is theorized to be because an ancestor first started down that path, and for some reason, or for many reasons, their children, grandchildren, etc.; carried on this destructive tradition.
I don’t believe that all our sins “go generational,” in that they all go on to effect the generations after us. But it seems pretty clear that some do. And that the enemy is often at work in the middle of it. He is ever watching to catch us at our weakest. His job description is to steal, kill, and destroy, and he doesn’t seem to ever go on vacation.
I’m so glad you asked. I’ve developed this online class to help you address many of the most common issues in the arena of generational work that I’ve gathered over more than 10 years of investigating for my own use, and most recently for that of my clients. I’ll walk you through each section step-by-step with sample prayers that you can use. I will give you the tools that you need to see greater freedom come in your life and in the lives of those in your family.
If you are ready to get started cleaning out the baggage from the family closet as it were, I have a class that you might find helpful as others have done. It can be found here: http://emotionalandspiritualhealing.com/generational-healing-class/ the class is 100% online, so you can take it from anywhere and at any time.
There are also a couple of bonus upgrades available.
