Meditate God’s Word – Receive Revelation Knowledge For Overcoming Faith

How to meditate God’s Word to receive revelation knowledge for overcoming faith? Let’s see how to get it.

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith” (Mark 11:23 KJV).

This is an awesome promise. Jesus Christ is saying you can say things and they will come to pass if you believe it in your heart and not doubt. But to act on this scripture with great faith you would want to meditate on this scripture for your faith in it to grow. Let’s use this scripture verse as an example of how to meditate God’s Word properly to receive revelation knowledge to have great faith in a scripture. You would read not just this scripture, but you would read the entire chapter 11 over and over again. You would ask God the Father in Jesus’ name to give you revelation knowledge of this chapter as well as the promise scripture Mark 11:23. You would also pray in tongues over this chapter.

So, this is how you meditate scriptures in the Bible to receive revelation knowledge for your faith to develop in God’s Word, especially His promises. Also, as you meditate in a chapter, psalm or proverb, God can reveal to you the subject(s) and objective(s) of each chapter,psalm or proverb. This greatly enhances your knowledge of the Bible and your faith in God’s Word. Let’s continue to learn how to have overcoming faith.

Don’t believe in praying in tongues? You need to read Acts 2:4;10:44-47, Romans 8:26-27, 1 Corinthians 14:18 and Jude 20-21.

By taking an entire chapter and meditating it you allow the Holy Spirit to give you the overall revelation picture of of the passage. Then you can single out one scripture and have a better understanding of it as it relates to the other scriptures in the chapter, psalm or proverb. And of course your faith will grow in the scripture promise you have selected.

Use this successful meditation process throughout the Bible, taking a chapter, psalm (psalm 119 is very long, so break it down into passage segments) or proverb and meditate on them so revelation and faith will manifest. Then act on God’s Word and speak God’s Word with bold faith and see your faith bring substance to what you hoped to come to pass.

What happens when you speak God’s Word in faith? God’s Word is like a fire and will burn up the destructive thorns in your heart that would strangle the success productivity of God’s Word in your life. God’s Word is like a hammer and when spoken in faith will crack and demolish any rock of defeat or lack in your heart. God’s Word spoken in faith will paint and create a victorious fruit bearing Christ-like image in you that is well pleasing to God.

“Is not my word like a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces” (Jeremiah 23:29 KJV)?

Healing Power and the Power of Prayer and Natural Remedies

I have written quite a lot lately on Natural Healing, and what I like to call Natural Remedies but I have failed to write on the greatest ” Healing Power ” which many refer to as the ” Power of Prayer. ” Now it is not my intention to fool you into thinking that if you practice prayer, you will be healed. I do not want to infer that your prayers will be answered right away and you will be healed. It is not my intention to label myself as the settlers of old would call ” a snake oil salesman.” But definitley I can say with all clear conscience my ” prayer for the day ” is that you would start to use prayer for strength and come to know God in a very real deep and personal way. I refer to it as ” Healing Scriptures ” since I definitley believe in prayer for healing and the ” Power of Prayer.”

Let me expain what I mean when I say start to exercise a daily routine in prayer. Prayer and Meditation has been documented worldwide in many different instances where people have learned healing power through Prayer and Meditation. Meditation is very important to me in my walk in this world and my walk with God. Now when I refer to meditations I am referring to the memorizing of scriptures.The term ” Meditate “according to the Concise Oxford Dictionary means to plan mentally, contemplate, design and exercise the mind. ” Meditation is very important if you want to be healed in Body and Mind. As far as Mental Health is concerned, Meditation is an absolute must if you want to be free of the power of the enemy. Now let me show you what I mean. In Matthew 11: 28-30 it says these words ” Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. ” Now those were Jesus Words which is also God’s Word. Just contemplate them for awhile.

Now you may say to me in the next breath, well Jesus was only the Son of God and not God. Well I beg to differ. When you read the book of Hebrews 1: 1,2  ( God’s Word ) it says this: ” God who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; ” and I will stop there and make you observe something first of all it says, God has spoken to us in these last days by his Son, and then ends with the words by whom also he made the worlds. Now contemplate that, it says that Jesus Christ is the Creator of the Universe, ( by whom he made the worlds ). If you truly want to get to know God then get to know Jesus.

I want to give you one more example of meditation. One of my favorite scriptures is in Proverbs 8: 17 and I say it continually throughout the day since I have memorized it, ” I love them that love me  and those that seek me early shall find me. ” First of all this prayer says that God loves those who love him and secondly, if you seek him you will find him. Now you may think I am a total lunatic but I am only telling you what God’s Word says. It also says these words in Philippians 3:8- 10, the Apostle Paul wrote; ” Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith. That I may know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings … “. The point I am trying to make is you can actually Know God in this lifetime and he absolutely wants you to, which is why he has given us his love letter to mankind ( the Bible ) so that we may know him yes actually know him as you do a family member or a friend.

King David knew God which is why his Prayer to the Lord in the 23rd Psalm says ” The Lord is my Shepherd … ”  Read it for yourself and see that it was an actual Prayer by an actual person. First of all he was fleeing for his life since King Saul wanted to kill him and he was  hiding in caves and rocks from Saul’s armbearers yet David who wasn’t King yet,  had put all his trust in faith in the Lord God to deliver him. Make that prayer your prayer and memorize it and watch your mind change and your whole life change by putting your Faith and Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, God in a human form that came to show mankind what he is like and how much he loves us. Enough to die for us. But that is only half the story he also conquered death by raising from the dead that we too might rise from the dead and walk in newness of life.

Now my Prayer of the Day is that your Prayer would be God’s Prayer. As Jesus Prayed ” Not my will but thy will be done ” when  Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemene to take this cup from him when he knew he had to die for the sins of the world. Yes your and my sin has been paid for and we no longer have to pay the penalty for our sin ever since the penalty has been paid by his blood. Now if that is true and you believe that, how shall we live our lives here on this earth.  As it says in the book of Romans 6: 1,2 ” What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound. God forbid. How shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? ”

If sin has kept you in bondage then just confess it and receive the forgiveness that is found in his son. Your life will change I guarantee it. The Lord’s Prayer starts with the words ” Our Father “, can you call him father? It also says in the Prayer of Jesus, Hallowed be Thy Name. This means that God’s Name is Holy ( Hallowed ) and his Character is Holy which the term Holy means set apart, unique, different from everything and everyone and he wants us his children to be different from the world and Holy. Peter 1: 15,16  God says ” But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation, because it is written, be ye holy , for I am holy.  Yes God wants us to be different in this world and seperate in this world so that we may touch peoples lives for his Glory and Our Good. Amen

Now say Our Father or Father I want you to be my Father, My Lord and My Saviour.  Deliver me and truly let your kingdom come into my heart and life, your will not mine be done and yes deliver me from evil and temptation in Jesus Name. For you are all powerful and deserve all the Glory. The Lord’s Prayer was not meant to be used in vain repetition as so many people have done. Jesus said Pray after this manner in otherwords let this be the attitude of your heart.  All you have to do is punch in proof of Prayer and Meditation on the internet and see how the medical profession has now done study after study that has shown the overwhelming evidence that the Mental Health of the Nations has suffered  and now we have many mental illness’s all because we have gotten away from Prayer and Meditation. Study after study has shown that those that have a strong faith and belief in God fair much better in life than those that don’t and even doctors are now asking their patients do you believe in prayer and meditation, if so then keep it up.

For more on Natural Healing and Natural Remedies just keep reading and hopefully you will gain some insight into why we get sick in the first place and what you need to be doing to counteract the damage we have done to our bodies.

Is Music Therapy Effective?

Is music therapy effective in the treatment of medical, physical, and emotional illness?

Scientific research, especially in northeastern Ohio, has indicated that music therapy can promote the healing spirit of an individual, can improve the quality of life of a patient, can induce hope and faith in overcoming illness. In these respects, music therapy plays its role in modern medicine. Indeed, healing music plays a pivotal role in a wide array of illnesses and disorders.

Pop singer Billy Joel once said: “Music in itself is healing.” But music therapy is not just about listening to music to feel good, nor is it just about music appreciation.

Music therapy is not a new concept using the healing spirit of music for therapeutic purposes. The ancient Greeks, Chinese, Egyptians, Indians, and Jews had successfully utilized the healing power of music in their cultures to promote health and wellness. In the 18th century, music therapy became a science for treating physical and psychological illness in the Western world.

So, what exactly is music therapy if it is not music appreciation or music relaxation?

Music therapy is planned interaction and intervention with specific goals based on the patient’s specific needs, strengths and weaknesses. Healing music is used in conjunction with physicians, physical occupational and speech therapists, nurses, and educators to achieve the desired healing effects of music. Essentially, music therapy is utilization of the healing spirit of music by trained medical professionals to motivate or change feelings and behavior patterns that may have substantial long-term health benefits for the patient.

The ultimate goal of music therapy is recovery and recuperation from an illness or disorder. Music healing is especially advantageous in this day and age, when many people are suffering from emotional and mental problems. Healing music can help one manage stress more efficiently and effectively in that it can facilitate one to express pent-up feelings of anger and resentment, which have adverse psychological effects on mental health and wellness. Music therapy is often used to enhance the impaired memory of patients as a result of neurological disorder. Healing music is also effective in improving communication skills of individuals who are socially withdrawn or who have personality problems they are incapable to deal with. Music therapy, through its healing spirit, can teach social skills. Physiologically, the healing power of music not only facilitates physical rehabilitation for stroke patients, but also alleviates physical pain.

It must be remembered that healing is more than just about the physical; the emotional and spiritual aspects should also be taken into consideration. Music therapy benefits the mind and the spirit. If it can foster hope and faith in overcoming a physical or emotional impediment, music therapy has served its function in modern medicine.

Yoga In Stress Management

YOGA IN STRESS MANAGEMENT

By

Dr.J.Rajakumar

To-day, Science and Technology has made it advancement at the greatest pace. Yesterday’s innovation becomes obsolete to day. Human minds have to conform to the speed of technology by employing their intellect. In this process their mind becomes fatigue and ultimately it leads them to stress and strain. The doors of opportunity to relax do not knock at to them. This stress not only has its impact on them, but also on their sub ordinates, dependents and on the society as a whole.

STRESS

                                Stress is described as a state of anxiety, strain, nervousness, tension, constant worry or pressure. It is what our bodies and minds experience in order to adapt to our consistently changing environment.

According to R.S.Lazarus, stress arises when an individual perceives that he/she cannot adequately cope with the demands being made on them or when they perceive threats to their well being. Stress results from an imbalance between demands and resources.

According to S.Palmen stress is the psychological, physiological and behavioral response by an individual when they perceive a lack of equilibrium between the demands placed upon them and their ability to meet those demands, which over period of time, leads to ill health.

Mind loses its equilibrium when any external or internal problem strains it harshly. Consequently, its functioning gets disturbed and its harmony begins to diminish slowly or rapidly, depending upon the individual’s state of mental health. The person so affected for a long period, becomes mentally sick with intensity proportionate to the degree of harmony lost. As a result, the individual’s thought action, manner, and behavior and out look become imbalanced and take various forms and shapes of abnormal expression. This can involve persons of any age, of any sex, of any socio economic back ground and of any land.

CAUSES OF STRESS:-

In order to make the methodological process of yoga comprehensible, a brief analysis about the causes of mental stress is essential. All troubles which affect the mind of an individual spring from three basic sources

i)    Nature

ii)  Society

iii)    Self

In other words, the particular problem which strains and causes mental imbalance in an individual is Nature- oriented, Society- oriented or Self- oriented.

        NATURE:-  The stress from Nature could be in the form of some natural calamity, threat from certain animate creatures and the peculiarity of natural phenomena.

(Ex) Tsunami, Earthquake. Etc.,

SOCIETY:-The stress comes from societal problems likewise, could be religious, ethnic, racial, economic, political etc., or also they might involve the varied problems of adjustments to certain customs, manners, way of life, etc., of a particular community.

(Ex) Judgments in the rural set up

SELF:- There could be countless problems of individual’s own creation, while arise because of certain beliefs, faith, notions, habits, manners and also because of some inner feelings, such as, hatred, jealousy, revenge, love, romance, likes and dislikes.

EFFECT OF STRESS:-   According to Selye, stress is not necessarily some thing bad, it all depends on how you take it. The stress of exhilarating, creative successful work is beneficial, while that of failure, humiliation or infection is detrimental. Stress can sometime lead to severe health problems and in extreme cases, can cause even death.

Stress gives positive as well as negative results. If it is an optimum stress

i)     It helps us move to action

ii)     Stimulating and exciting

iii)    New awareness and out look

So, for any work we are going to do or we are going to face any task, we should have optimum stress. If the stress level increases, the following physical and mental problems arise and disturb the individual. Stress indirectly and sometimes directly will affect the people those who are near and dear to him.

Physical problems:-

                               i)  Severe Head ache

ii)  Hyper tension

iii) Cardiac failure

iv)  Diabetes

v)  Strokes

Mental problems:-

i) Distrust

ii) Rejection

iii)  Anger

iv) Depression

v) Insomnia

People with high stress usually feel poorly about themselves or the world around them. They struggle with inactivity, isolation and feelings of hopelessness.

YOGA:-    Yoga is the restriction of the flections of consciousness. Yoga has a complete message for humanity. It has a message for the human body, human mind and human soul. Yoga sastra unmistakably recognizes the interdependence of body and mind. It prescribes exercises for both body and mind, so that the two might develop themselves in a spirit of co-operation to such a balanced psycho- physiological condition that they should cease to enslave the human soul. Yogis are convinced that thus freed from the thralldom of body and mind, the soul realizes the boundless existence of infinite bliss.

Through constant practice of yoga, one can over come all difficulties and eradicate all weakness. Pain can be transmitted in to bliss, sorrow in to joy, failure in to success and sickness into perfect health. Determination, patience and persistence lead us to the goal.

It may be said that the goal of yoga is to bring about a complete harmony within the individual, due to the collation of the process of desire and achievement, as a result of realization of the futility of that process. It is a state of separation from misery and sorrow, a state of silence and peace. But it becomes almost impossible for most of us to attain such a state, because the minds of most of us are endlessly caught up in wishful thinking, seeking security, prestige, power, permanent and lasting pleasure and so on. We thus, forever carry a burden caused by desires, cravings, hopes and despairs, greed envy. It becomes very difficult to understand clearly how this burden and tension is essentially of our own making, because our beliefs, judgments and conclusions, hardly ever permit us to think in a free manner. We are conditioned by the beliefs that we unknowingly gather from our parents, friends, teachers, leaders and other influential members of the society. This process of conditioning has an overwhelming influence on almost every child born in the society. The goal of yoga is to put an end to this conditioning, society and grief. An individual, then, stops looking at the problems he confronts, through what others have said, and the starts understanding any situation as it is. But all this indeed remains beyond the grasp of most of us, because we lack sensitivity and simplicity of mind. It is therefore, that individuals who reach the goal of yoga are very rare in any society.

The Principles Of Spiritual Healing

The term, “Spiritual healing” may seem to be an odd word in this era of advanced technology. However, the truth of the very existence of the invisible power called “God” cannot be just ignored. As Spirituality involves the acceptance of god beyond intelligence with whom we have relationship, spiritual healing does have a great importance in a person’s life.

The Principles:

You will be well- aware of the fact that, physical healing greatly depends upon deeper healing of spirit, which is based on metaphysical principles. Spiritual Healing is said to be the natural energy therapy and spiritual healing complements the conventional medicine by treating the whole parts of the body of a person including mind, body and spirit. Healers act as a conduit for healing energy, sometimes this is described as ‘love and light’ which relaxes the body. This technique includes other benefits and that helps us to release of tension and increase the stimulation of self-healing. The benefits of healing can be felt on many levels, not just the physical and the effects can be profound.

Developing Spirituality:

Developing a connection with God will get you the feeling of safety in soul. Spiritual healing makes us understand the fact that we are not all alone in the universe, even at those times when we feel temporarily separated from other people. We feel extreme security as we believe that there is a source that we can always seek help from. In short, spiritual Healing teaches us the art of living.

Spiritual healing can be done to any person of any religion. Spirituality is not something for the chosen few or the pious alone. DNA Activation is the most powerful alternate healing technique that can assist in healing of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual problems

Methods Used For Spiritual Healing:

Prayer, visualization, channeling of spiritual energy, devices that transmit healing forces, channeling of Spiritual Helpers and Guides, personal spiritual realization, advanced levels of concentration, psychic abilities are some of the methods of spiritual healing methods in practice today. These techniques enable the people to recover from certain disorders very quickly. Enlightenment is guided through the willingness of human by rationality rather than by faith or superstition and backed up by the view of the world increasingly validated by science and not by religion or tradition .Spiritual healing has the awakening power and enables to discover the potentiality to achieve our goals.

Bottom Line

Spiritual Healing is not just a counseling. Spiritual healing can be used as an aid that the medical practitioners do not have access to. It brings the sufficient power or good merit to literally shift the mental state of a person, which cannot be done through any physical exercises or drugs. The most practical approach for emotional and mental work is to supplement counseling with spiritual healing. Most of the counseling sessions available today helps the people to slowly shift a person’s thoughts and feelings whereas spiritual healing shifts energy patterns that change the overall life process in a quickened and gentle way.

What they have heard about it is that stress relieving; a feeling of total mental and physical relaxation. Sometimes you may have a person that has a chronic illness. The reason that they have come for Reiki is to be treated “immediately”. This is fine, except that it is important for the client to know that they may have to do some life altering work for themselves. Reiki works if the person desires to be healed and is willing to raise their consciousness to remain well.

Reiki is best given by placing hands on, or slightly above, the parts of the body that correspond to the major chakras (Crown, Brow, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus; Hara and Root). The recipient lies down on a couch or on a floor-mat or sits in a straight-backed chair. The best place is a couch. The practitioner’s hands are kept in each position for three to five minutes. The recipient remains fully clothed and personal privacy is rigorously respected.

Some reiki practitioners do not touch the physical body but transmit healing into the surrounding aura. Reiki can be used to heal the self or someone else, and reiki energy can be projected into the future or directed to a distant place. It can also be used on pets or plants.

Summary- Motivation

As defined by Burger (2008), motivation is the driving force in all human activities which is aimed at goal achievement. In other words, motivation has also been defined as the determination and zest with a kind of excitement that makes one to endure and persevere in order to reach greater heights. In regard to human life, the source of the driving force (motivation) comes either from an internal source or external source. It has been noted that, motivation is dynamic and keeps changing from time to time. In this phenomenon, attainment of one goal gives a new drive to aim to a higher goal and the process continues throughout an individual’s life. On the contrary, de-motivation is also evident in people’s lives and may lead to great withdrawing and a bleak of all aspects of life. Despite the narrowing of the topic to address humans, it be effectively used in describing animal behavior. With regard to the topic, various theorists have contributed extensive efforts in analyzing and discussing the concept. Primarily, the concept of motivation is related with individuals desire to maximize pleasure and minimize physical pain. This will expound on the concept of motivation and more precisely identify and critically evaluate the role of internal and external factors affecting motivation (Burger 2008).

To begin with, motivation is disintegrated into two broad categories which include the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation exists within the individual and does not rely on external pressure. In this case, the motivation is driven by enjoyment or interest in the tasks itself. Based on research carried by different educational and social psychologists, intrinsic motivation is in most cases associated with high academic achievement and enjoyment by learners. Fritz Heider’s attribution theory has profoundly explained the concept of intrinsic motivation. Bandura’s and Ryan’s and Deci in the theory of self efficiency and cognitive evaluation theory respectively have adequately explained the topic of intrinsic motivation (Burger 2008).

On the other hand, extrinsic motivation refers to the driving force in individual behavior which yields from outside the individual. As depicted by Burger (2008), money, coercion, grades, and punishment among other rewards are the key motivations of individuals. From another perspective, an issue like competition has been identified to be a key factor in motivating people to behave in different manner. With regard to the Self determination theory, individuals can internalize extrinsic motivation if they view the tasks matches their beliefs and values. By so doing, individuals are able to fulfill there primary psychological needs (Burger 2008).

In relation with intrinsic motivation, the key drive is the enjoyment or the interest in the activity being undertaken. There are various internal and external factors affecting the level of intrinsic motivation among individuals. For instance in the academic field, learners are highly motivated by the achievements they may gain from their academic excellence. In this case, by evaluating the factors determining the achievement of a certain task, individuals will be highly motivated if they realize they are potential in handling the situation. In this regard, the amount of effort to be put into a certain activity or task is a key determinant of the level of motivation. For instance in educational arena, students will get motivated if they realize the tasks to be accomplished require less effort. Also in the professional field, the level of ease in performing a task is a key determinant of the level of motivation (Burger 2008).

On the other hand, the level of participation and the degree of utility required from an individual in performing a task determines the level of motivation. For instance, students will get more motivating in performing their tasks if they realize they are the only effective agents in attaining their desired goals. The recognition that, results cannot be attained by lick will definitely reinforce the driving force in individuals. It has further been observed that, the motivation in students is also determined by individual learners’ abilities in mastering a topic. It should be noted that, the level of motivation is always varied among individuals (Atkinson Et al 1996).

Many theorists have developed different theories explaining on how various external and internal factors determines the level of motivation. To begin with, the incentive theory is a vital theory in explaining the motivational factors. In regard to this theory, a tangible or intangible reward given to an individual will significantly alter his level of motivation. Research and experiments carried on the theory shows that, the impact of the rewards varies with the length of time the reward is offered. For instance, if the reward is offered immediately, the level of motivation will be very high. On the contrary, lengthening the time when the reward will be offered leads to gradual diminishing of the level of motivation (Pavlov 1927).

Additionally, the theory also outlines that, a rein-forcer can also be an effective factor of manipulating the individual’s behavior. This factor is slightly different from reward in that it is intended to develop a measured increase in the level of desirable behavior. Basically, the theory is developed on the belief that people are always ready to engage in behaviors which they perceive to be profitable. The theory gains much support from Behavioral psychologists like B.F skimmer. The concept of wanting and liking are stressed in this scenario; whereby the stimulus is aimed at attracting the person to behaving in a certain manner. It should been noted that, stimulus is very crucial in manipulating individual behavior (Burger 2008).

The need hierarchy theory developed by Abram Maslow has been highly celebrated fro its role in explaining motivational factors of individuals. With regard to the theory, human behavior is influenced by the various needs and wants facing an individual. Based on this, the unsatisfied needs will be a key factor in deciding how a person will behave. On the contrary, satisfied needs have no role in determining the behavior of any individual. According to Abraham Maslow, the needs of people are endless and thus people’s behavior will continue to be manipulated by these needs influencing their level of motivation. Significantly, the hierarchical nature of human needs is also well depicted in the theory; whereby an individual will advance to the next level (Nevid 2007).
