Something HUGE

I keep getting reports of really huge angels being spotted here and there. Their feet are the size of buildings. Why? I’ve wondered.

This is my conclusion; I believe that they are being released for ushering in what God wants to do. 2011 is a year of transition. It’s easy to look around and see that. The world is changing. The earth and the depths are groaning. Some think that the world is coming to and end in 2012. I don’t! But I do believe that this world will change according to what Christians pray. I also believe that we are in a window of time where if we position ourselves and believe and pray, we will see the biggest ingathering of Kingdom presence than we have ever seen before.

Many of you have heard the prophecies that are in the air and are wondering what should we do. How do we pray? In Isaiah and Ezekiel, God looks for intercessors and finds none. God is looking right now and as far as I can see, there are thousand of us who are in position and we are praying. We are not only praying but standing in the gap against great darkness. We are in a place of declaring the prayers that are changing the planet.

So, back to the angels… Many seers that I talk to who have seen angels for a long time are now seeing the huge angels. I recently got a text from a gal who shared with me about her sister and what she saw. Making this story even more fun is that she is not a seer but she saw anyways. Here is the story:

These words about the West coast can really stir up fear. My family is not hearing positive words about the power of intercession and partnering with Heaven about these earthquakes, etc. 

Anyways, my family caught wind of the predictions and words and my sister really got freaked out immediately. Then as she was praying to God about all this, she had a distinct and vivid vision. 
As she prayed her vision was this: She saw "gargantuan" angels, larger than anything she can describe lined up very close together, no gaps between them. They appeared to be like statues, but she knew they were angels. They were lined up along the West coast, (she saw a coast line). She also became aware that they were like a huge wall, that no water would penetrate, she saw an image of waves but they could not penetrate the "barrier of the angels," the waves were not as tall as the angels. Then she heard "their legs are stabilizing the earth." 

Needless to say, she was very shocked by this vision and encouraged. It is her word to hold on to and declare. *Side note* I LOVE the U.S. but I really LOVE California. In my prayers (before I heard her vision) I felt like I needed release angels to stabilize all fault lines on the Pacific Rim of Fire.

So, here we are on the West Coast with some really, REALLY big angels on our side. Whether you agree or disagree with the recent words that have come out doesn’t really matter to me. One thing that has happened is that people are praying more than they have before. Bobby Conner said that this year is a year of prayer.

So keep this in mind you prayer warriors. As you pray, we have a guard of angelic beings posted and positioned for us!

Loving what God is doing!!

Fighting Allergies the Natural Way!

Well, here we are in spring it has finally sprung in Northern Cali. My favorite tree has bloomed with its majesty once again.

Taking walks is one of my favorite things to do next to putting my top down on my convertible. I notice that when I am out in the air, my heard starts to get plugged up. Maybe if I get a facemask and wear it out, it will do the trick. There you have it! Seasonal allergies are back. And it seems that they are really back this year. What to do? I thought since some people are asking, I would let you in on some natural ways to fight this wonderful time of the year.

There is a new herb that I have just discovered and it’s called butterbur. Hummm… Here is a link for you so you can take a look, http://altmedicine.about.com/od/healthconditionsatod/a/allergies.htm

Another product that I am using right now is Garden of Life sinus. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?client=safari&rls=en&q=garden+of+life+sinus&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=15195878197048306153&sa=X&ei=4eOdTenHGIXJgQek0P3GBA&ved=0CEIQ8wIwAg#ps-sellers

I get this at our health food store here in Redding called Orchard Nutrition.  I was in the other day looking and the gal told me they have been getting good reports on this stuff. I said, “I’ll take it!”. It is working pretty well for me. I have had a long-term problem with my sinuses due to over stressing my body with my busy life. So, my process will be slower with this product but I can feel a difference. Make sure you read all of the instructions. I’m sorry nursing moms and people with liver problems. 

There are also other ways to combat this time of year. You can use a netty pot. The first time I used this I thought I was going to drown! But I got the hang of it and it is a useful tool. I use a really good organic sea salt or Celtic salt in mine. Those kinds of salts are so healing. I also just keep sniffing water up my nose. I know it sounds bad, but it works. When I’m on the planes I have to do that all the time. I think planes have been one of the problems with my sinus dilemma. Did you know that they take out all the humidity in a plane because it weighs too much? Yep, that’s right. Therefore I sniff and sniff a lot to keep my sinus area moist. Which leads me to tell you that having a humidifier next to your bed at night is a good thing as well.

I was reading the other day where you can drink garlic juice for this. Wow! That would be something to try and get that down.

I have recently discovered a great juice drink. I like green lemonade but I tried a jalapeno in it the other day and yep, it was really good and spicy and my sinuses really liked it. Here is the base drink and you can add anything else you want.
1 head of organic romaine
5-6 leaves of kale
1 lemon
1 organic gala or sweet apple
1 slice of ginger - knuckle size

This is the most hydrating drink for me! In fact, it is tested as being about 1/3 more hydrating than water because it has all of the vitamins and minerals that help penetrate the cells. I also add some liquid Stevia to it for a sweeter taste.

Now, to spice it up you add a half to whole jalapeno pepper.
You can juice or blend this drink. If you blend you will have to cut out the kale stem and peel the lemon. I also like to add cilantro (coriander) or parsley. Like I said, you can add anything you like. That’s one of the joys of juicing.

One more recipe that is great for the throat and upper repository is Master Tonic. A friend of ours invented this tonic many years ago and we have been using it for a long time.

Master Tonic
Ingredients 1 part fresh chopped garlic cloves (anti­bacterial, anti­fungal, anti­viral, anti­parasitical) 1 part fresh chopped white onions, or the hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic) 1 part fresh grated ginger root (increases circulation to the extremities) 1 part fresh grated horseradish root (increases blood flow to the head) 1 part fresh chopped Cayenne peppers, Jalapenos, Serrano’s, Habaneras, African bird peppers....any combination of the hottest peppers available. I use the Habaneras.
·            Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs. Then fill to the top with raw unfiltered, unbleached, non-distilled apple cider vinegar.
·            Close and shake vigorously and then top off the vinegar if necessary. This is a 14 day process.
When complete you store it in the refrigerator. I buy the little dropper bottles and fill them up. I have a bottle in my purse right now!
·            You can use this by the dropper as much as you like. It works great.

A friend was telling me that he tried this when he started to get a cold. What usually would happen to him is that the cold would end up in his chest. By taking the MT it didn’t that time.

To your health,

1,000 things to be thankful for

It all started with a darling little girl who thought my name was “Charlotte.” She gave me a new name—“Charlotte”—when I met her. When I heard that name, I thought, “I think I like that.” This little girl, having just seen the movie Charlotte’s Web, was obviously touched by it.
If you have watched the movie, you know it is about a talking spider and how she inspires and helps a little pig, Wilbur, find out who he is. She helps him step into his destiny.
When I posted this comment on my facebook page,  “A little girl just called me “Charlotte”; I think I like it,” I didn’t know what would transpire.
My friend Anne Stock from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, had asked me to come and be the speaker at their women’s conference. I did not know that they would use this facebook comment and turn it into the title for that conference. When I got to Harrisburg for the conference, I found in my room the brochure, and it was all done in facebook form. Included in this brochure was the facebook conversation of me posting that comment. The first responder was Anne, and she had insight into what the little girl had done in giving me that name.
The name of the conference was called Charlottes Unite. It was a conference for connection women, encouraging each other in who we were.
At the end of the conference, Anne was speaking and sharing about a gal who had at one time written down 1,000 things that she was thankful for. While she spoke, she had us begin to write things down that we were thankful for. As I began to write, I could feel a good feeling coming on me and on others in the room. The very room was changing its atmosphere.
There is something about being thankful that changes everything around us. Being thankful is a very easy thing. It is a choice that we make every day and at times, every minute. It’s simple: if you want to change the air around you and change your heart, choose to be thankful.
I wrote down simple things that would come to my memory. Things like picking blackberries, making jam, watching my husband catch a fish and the look on his face when he does, watching little girls play pretend. As I began to write, I realized there is so much to be thankful for. This will not be hard, writing down a thousand things. So, when I got home, I decided I would do that.
I really like facebook and post many things on there. So I posted on my facebook that I had started writing down 1,000 things I’m thankful for. Many people responded. One gal came up with a plan. I like it when people come up with a good plan. She decided that she would do it, too, but would turn it into a 40-day thankfulness. Every day for 40 days she would write down 25 things that she was thankful for. What a great idea. I decided to join in that plan. So, I’m into my third day and am excited to see what will be put to paper today. Another day of thankfulness—can’t beat that. You should think about that, and when you do, you will start seeing in your head those things that you are thankful for. For me, they are things like seeing one of my trees bloom in spring, boys eating worms, baby chicks, the contrast between the blue sky and the green grass.
So start writing, and change your day. Let’s walk in thankfulness.
Charlottes, let’s unite and bring thankfulness wherever we go and start a chain reaction all around us.
