Frequency Image

I saw a clear image last week. All of this growing talk of frequency Heaven is sharing, and then the revelation pierced my spirit in a very immediate and direct way. 

The angel Topucca said, “That is actually always God’s goal. To have you vibrating at a high-level of frequency because then you’re in His image. You’re in a more whole and complete form. It’s always, always His goal for creation to vibrate with and be a reverberation of the sound of Heaven. 

And if people could just see Him from this lens, Amanda. If they could just see that He is out to bring everyone into this vibration, to come up higher next to Him. Not in a pious way, in a very real and vulnerable way. God is seeking for His children to become more and more vulnerable with Him about their world and the world. He’s seeking to bring creation back into alignment and oneness, which is what Christ did. It’s what He paid for.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy the revelation my spirit keeps receiving. Just the truth of it all. The understanding of the spirit/quantum realm and how Holy Spirit is constantly aiming to pull us into more of a oneness and wholeness with Heaven.

The truth about Him has been so twisted and skewed you know? Evil has truly lived up to its Hebraic meaning in helping us oppose God and become inferior to His very nature which is love. Religion has actually used evil to really separate us from a relationship with God, but to pursue dogma, theology, hate, judgment and separation instead.

Which is why, I am so adamant about truth. I am so open to helping others see that God is interested in relationship with us, and that is cultivated through vulnerability. It’s found through very open, raw and real communicative conversations about life, death and everything in between. He is so wanting us to share the deepest measure of our heart with Him so that He can dig down past the hurt, pain, brokenness, muck and mire, heal us, restore us and then pull us up higher. He’s aiming to bring us into a higher elevation and reverberation with Him.

A relationship with Him is what Jesus paid for you know? Grace is law in the courts of Heaven today because of Christ. And it will forever split darkness from light, bringing a separation between the choices we’ve made or our ancestors have made. So, then we can come into greater alignment and communication with Him. 

And when we go deeper, when we press past the layer of this material, 3D world, we will continue to find more depth than we’ve ever known. A love and peace far greater than we’ve ever comprehended. A sense of oneness that says, “I am created in and now reflect the image of God.” 🌱

Heaven’s Perspective

It’s very rare that I sit down to write and don’t know what to say… But here I am. It’s one of those days where (because I promised myself and God I would keep sharing) I must write.

But what do I write? And how do I write it? I asked Holy Spirit yesterday. He didn’t give me an answer. So, I engaged Heaven further. I wanted to know if maybe there was a scroll dimensions above that might give me a lead on what I should write. And all I heard was, “Heaven’s Perspective. Share about the perspective of Heaven.”

For more than 24 hours I’ve tossed those words around in my mind. I tried to engage my spirit for a lead. But still nothing. Nothing came forth. And then, then I heard my spirit say, “I’ve got it. Tell your readers about your life. Give them a breakdown of your daily reality. Go ahead and do it.”

For me, every day is different, but seemingly the same. I spend at least two undistracted hours every morning engaging Heaven. I listen to Holy Spirit. I question and converse with Him about my personal growth, my family and friends, my business, my sister’s business, my city, my nation and the world. Sometimes as I go down this list, family and friends faces or people I don’t even know will pop into my vision and I ask God what they need. How can I seemingly intercede for that person or group? I also message a person if Holy Spirit says to send them what I’m hearing and seeing. A lot of the time I have visions. I write them down. I try my best to keep a clean record of what I’m hearing and seeing. This is something I’ve grown with over the years, so looking back I don’t have a daily written record. Just memories I pull on from my spirit’s gift of memory. 

And then there are the conversations I’ve been having with angels and the cloud of witnesses. This is semi-new in the sense that I was seeing angels in my visions, but now I hear their voices. Which is a change. They all have different ranks. Some think my conversations with angels are thrilling, which they are… But, I tend to just really love communicating with Holy Spirit. Really Him and the Father. Jesus too… but Holy Spirit is truly my best friend so I always want to spend time with Him.

After two hours of this, sometimes it’s more but really never less, I move into more of a work mode. I manage my sister’s business and career through Cultivate Life. Meaning that the system and methods Cultivate Life operates on help dictate and orchestrate Bridget Winder Art. And I know… A lot of people wonder what that actually looks like. And, honestly, it changes from day to day. She creates a lot of art, in many different forms (painting, sketching, singing, acting, performing, etc). In my undistracted morning time, I ask Heaven loads of questions about different art pieces and production projects. And Heaven gives me a lead about where we should go next. They don’t just answer my questions, they also provide me with a template for how to go about the day. They also advise me on how to price things or sometimes even how to respond to emails.

Then some days I jump on calls with people who are growing and cultivating a relationship with God. Those that need some guidance. We’ve all been there at some point. Needing a nudge. Needing someone that is like minded that can help us move forward through the season we are in. So, I’ll jump on a call and just listen. Listen and ask Holy Spirit how the entire conversation needs to move forward. And there’s always prayer. Prayer that’s focused on meeting specific needs.

Actually, prayer is important to me. I spend two hours (sometimes more) on a prayer call for the state of Louisiana every Tuesday. The call is from 6am-6pm. People from all over the state jump on the call. There’s a new list of needs released every week. I moderate from 3pm-4pm. Which means, I lead the call and anyone that jumps onto the call can jump in and add a prayer or what Holy Spirit might be showing them at any time. I’ve been a part of this for more than a year and I really enjoy it. It’s helped me mature and grow in more ways than I can even perceive right now. 

Another thing my day always consists of is gym time. I’ve been working out consistently since I lost 100 pounds 15 years ago. The gym as been many things to me over the years, but the last two years have been the best. I finally appreciate the body I live in because I’m no longer abusing it with food and exercise. And honesty, I believe I’m in the best shape of my life because I’m finally spiritually and mentally free of all of the things that were causing me to be in an abusive relationship.

You know… I’ve been following my spirit’s lead and giving you a breakdown of my daily life, and I just thought of the initial prompt, which was “Heaven’s Perspective.” And I hear Holy Spirit saying this, “This is what it’s about Amanda. You’re giving your readers a glance of how to do life from Heaven’s perspective. How to get up and spend the time listening and learning from Me. How to apply what you’ve been told to your business. And how to work with other’s as you go about your daily life. Amanda, this is what I need others to do. I need them to constantly draw closer and closer to Me. To put down their distractions and excuses and really engage what I have for them and the world.”

And I don’t know about your life or how it operates, but Heaven is pleading with us to drop all of the fluff of the material world and truly cultivate a life that’s deeply connected to the realm of Heaven. The life of a child of God is meant to be lived from the human spirit. We are meant to connect to Heaven and gain its game plan every single day. Iniquity and evil don’t have to rule and reign over our lives. We are capable of coming up higher and truly living from Heaven’s perspective. 🌱

Run Hard

“Run Hard. Persevere. Keep Moving Forward.” I tell myself these things every single day. They are the inner motivation I need to remain constant and consistent to the path I’m walking down with Holy Spirit. And the motivation is good. It does help me press forward in moments where I could become complacent; however, I do wonder…. 

What overwhelms you the most about following Holy Spirit’s lead? Is it acquiring the focus to listen to Him and then drawing near to truly hear what He’s saying? Or, do you find yourself challenged to discern and understand what He’s spoken and the direction He’s pointing you in because you’re conflicted between what your spirit believes versus how your soul might be interpreting? Or, are you like me… Finding yourself in several tough moments where you hear Him and understand Him, but don’t necessarily want to move forward because it’s going to require you to really endure more challenging moments than before?

I’ve been in a sprint for what seems like three months now. I’ve been in a moment that’s caused me to really press in and run as hard as I can with the direction of Holy Spirit, while pulling from Heaven as I need it. And the sprint has been good. The sprint has actually produced several significant breakthroughs, followed by a flow of revelation, wisdom and understanding that I didn’t have before; however, the sprint… The run hard moment has also left my soul feeling weary because it still wrestles with submitting to my spirit and operating from a place of rest, while my spirit paves the way forward in the sprint.

And though I can’t really share the reasons I am sprinting right now, I can tell you I do hear Holy Spirit, my angels and a vast cloud of witnesses like never before. I do hear all of their voices and input about how I can really become great at sprinting in moments where I am aiming to cultivate the mental toughness to arrive on time at the end of the sprint, gaining everything I’ve been pursuing for the Kingdom of God.

Yesterday, after making a business decision that will advance things greatly, I heard Holy Spirit say, “I see you’re here seeking direction. Remember Heaven will give you everything you need. We will make it look flawless. The run hard moment was for this moment. I know you are so weary in your soul from this journey. I see all of the hope deferred inside of you. I see your longings and I hear your cries. Amanda, I haven’t forgotten about you, but you must not cave in right now. Rise above what your soul is feeling. Rise above it and access the faith of your spirit. Access the divine nature of your spirit. Do not be afraid of it at all. It is so useful and helpful for such a time as this. I know this journey has been long and filled with seasons of disappointment, delay and frustration, but you must… I repeat you must keep moving forward. Always. That is My order to you. Do not be afraid either. There’s nothing to fear.”

And I don’t know if you are challenged with following Holy Spirit; however, I am here to encourage you to keep going. Don’t give up on the plans He’s laid before you and the path He’s placed you on. Be brave in moments where He’s leading you into more levels and layers of refinement so that you can come forth ready and willing to develop, mature and grow into all that He has for you. And, most importantly (I have to tell myself this a lot), remember that following Holy Spirit is a lifestyle. It’s a cultivated lifestyle. We are all in different lanes with Him according to the assignments He’s created for us. We are all growing and maturing at different rates. Each one of us has different layers of iniquity or past moments of darkness that try to hold us back from moving forward, but it’s okay because His grace divides the darkness of who we are and who we’ve been from who we are truly meant to be. Also, we aren’t in a race with each other. This isn’t a competition where we compare our growth rates and patterns. Instead, we are following Him to continue to help reveal the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth. And some days seem easier than others. But, more than anything, be encouraged to just keep going. Do not become stagnant in your spiritual walk. And please, find a community of people that are open to helping you mature and grow into every ounce of destined potential Heaven has written and recorded about you. 🌱

Lean In A Bit Closer

“That vibration you hear is me. I know you hear the frequency coming from me.” 

I knew the angel speaking to me was telling the truth. The high-pitched sounds and vibrations I hear have only increased in the past six months. For a while I thought the sounds were just Holy Spirit, but the angel speaking to me made it very clear that it was him. 

When I hear the frequency of Heaven, I hear a vibration. The room gets very loud and very full, but not in a chaotic way. It’s not like the sound a car makes when the base is turned up loud. But it is what you would think light might sound like if it could speak. It’s a piercing sound. A piercing sound that has a direct target. It’s on a mission to cut straight forward and deliver revelation and truth. It feels clean. Very clean and very pure. It’s not overwhelming in a dark or negative way, but it is very large and significant in nature. 

And the frequency really gets stronger when I hear Holy Spirit and one specific advancing angel speak to me. This one specific angel, his name is Topucca. I know it sounds different. It sounded different to me the first time he said it. But the energy and presence of God surrounding him is really, really strong and sharp. I mean, I sometimes feel like my room is beaming with intense force because his presence is so large. Like even right now, while I am writing, he feels so close.

Now, I don’t know what your thoughts are about what I’m sharing; however, I am here to motivate you to cultivate a deeper connection with the spirit realm around you. But before I do, I want to remind you to invite your spirit forward and tell your soul to sit back and relax. It’s good to do this because it ensures our spirit is leading and receiving what’s being communicated, rather than allowing the soul to try and hash out what it “thinks.” After all, we are a spirit, with a heart and a soul all incased within a body.

Okay, now that our spirits are leading, I want to share a conversation I had with my lead angel. 

I called George forward to speak with him and commission him to help me with some work. I immediately saw him picking fruit again. I said, “You pick fruit a lot, G.” He said, “Yes, it’s my primary job, to pick the fruit. To harvest it. The trees in your garden are really giving off so much right now. I’ve been taking buckets and buckets full of fruit to the storehouse every day. This is where you can find me if I’m not fighting a war or battle, I’ll be here, tending to your garden. I love the garden. Your spirit loves the garden.”

Now, I want to ask you a question. What does your spirit think about conversations with Heaven? How do you feel about talking to God? Does He talk back? And if He does, who do you hear? Holy Spirit? The Father? Jesus? Or, are you diverse in your connections, hearing and communicating with all three of them? Can you hear other created beings of Heaven speaking? Can you sense when an angel is near? If so, do you have the faith to ask them for assistance?

You see I am sharing my stories and asking these questions because Heaven is pleading for us to partner with it right now. It’s begging for us to let go of our distractions and engage it for solutions and forward movement. If you can see the evil and wickedness increasing in the earth, then you should feel very, very, very encouraged because there is a process and a system to combat it all. There are many Heavenly avenues of trade and communication open to us in this very moment. Avenues of trade and communication that have been sealed up until recently. They are open and ready for us to engage them and work with them.

And if this sounds completely strange or different to you, good! I feel like I wake up in a new world everyday with more things to learn and explore than I knew from the day before. The resources of the Kingdom of God are endless! So please, do not limit yourselves. Drop your distractions and excuses and lean in a little bit closer. 🌱

The Vault

I was in the spirit yesterday morning, praying and talking to God like normal… All of a sudden I saw a large brownish/maroonish/whiteish marbled wall that spanned down a hallway. I didn’t know where I was, so I asked Holy Spirit. He said, “You’re in your Heavenly mansion, and I want to show you something that’s locked inside of the vault of your heart.” 

“Cool!!” I thought. “I wonder what this is all about.”

The next thing I knew I found myself in a very large home my dad built and my family lived in in the early 2000s. As I walked around throughout the house, memories of that season came rushing into my mind. Suddenly, I was overwhelmed with the past. The way it felt. The way it sounded. The way it smelt. All of it was actively present and alive in front of me. 

As I walked around I began to wonder, “Okay, what’s this all about? Why am I here? God, why did you bring me to my Heavenly mansion to unlock the vault of my heart? And what does this season of my life have to do with what’s hidden inside of the vault?”


Then, He very carefully began to explain Himself. He showed me a huge truth I’d kept hidden from myself… An area where I chose to believe a lie, and then never stopped believing it. And, although, I’ve known the truth for years, I’ve chosen to push it further and further away from me. He said, “Amanda, you’ve allowed this lie to define who you are in this moment, but it cannot define you anymore. I want you to let it go. I want you to repent and renounce for cultivating it within the grounds of your heart. And then, then I want you to pick up the truth, plant it on this refined ground and then walk away from here covered in My boldness, confidence, humility and security.”

And so… So that’s what I did. I repented for holding onto the lie for so long. I renounced any stronghold or demonic entanglement I might be caught up in because of it. And then… Then I planted the seed of truth on the grounds of my heart.

And I tell you this story because I hope it encourages you to continue to follow Holy Spirit into hidden parts of yourself so that He may inspect the depths of your heart. Because, even after years of life-giving cultivation, there are STILL areas of our lives He can and will dig up so that we can flourish. And, I know a lot of the time we don’t want to follow Him into the past because it requires reliving things that are uncomfortable; however, the powerful thing about moving forward with Him is the truth that we will thrive on the other side. 🌱 #cultivatelife

A Decade in the Making

Okay… Today, I hit the decade mark of losing 100 lbs! So… What does it mean to me to look at the girl on the left, the young woman on the right and the woman in the middle? Well… To me the three make up a cultivated lifestyle of restoration and freedom.

When I finished losing the weight, I didn’t realize I’d spend the next 10 years allowing Jesus to refine, develop, mature and grow me as a whole.

So when I look at these three photos I don’t see me… Instead I see Him… I see what He’s done in me.

You see, He’s taken a girl who was incredibly insecure, fearful, anxious, prideful, selfish, jealous and bitter… And He’s transformed her into a woman that’s confident, secure, courageous, at peace with the unknown, humble (I still struggle), selfless, grateful and full of joy towards others and myself!

When I started this journey I thought I knew Jesus. I thought I knew Father God. I thought I knew the Holy Spirit. I grew up believing in them, but life and death have taught me that I didn’t know them at all because I hadn’t experienced them on a personal level.

So today I can confidently say they are my foundation and source of life. Together, they constantly keep me strong, healthy and secure. While the past versions of me desperately searched for identity and security, today I believe I stand still on the truth that I can’t be shaken, tossed or turned. My life and all that I am is in Him.

And while the world around me continues to try to show me why I’m not thin enough, thick enough, tan enough, flawless enough, beautiful enough, smart enough, successful enough or even “godly” enough… Well guess what? His opinion of me is all that matters. And He says, “You’re more than enough Amanda because I’ve helped you become a new creation and given you new life through Christ.” 🌱 #cultivatelife

Expansion

I told my mom what God told me about blooming. She, who is always wiser than me, said, “Amanda, I know you’re excited, but remember this is going to be a PROCESS. Just like all of the growth you’ve experienced, blooming will take time. A bud doesn’t open overnight. It takes time to expand as it reveals the colorful world inside.”

You know… She’s absolutely right!

While most growth is painful, blooming is not. BUT it does require expansion. Which, like my mom said, takes TIME.

And if you know me, I get caught up with the time things take to get to where they need to be. Sure, I’ve gotten better over the years, but for the most part I still want things to happen faster than they do.

Blame it on our culture that’s centered on instant gratification I guess.

But in really, I’m not up for playing the blame game. I’m more into learning about the expansion process of the bloom!

It’s interesting too. It seems like all of a sudden timing is right. Timing is good. Timing is in season. So many pieces and parts I’ve hoped and prayed would come together are TRULY coming together.

And though there’s a place in me that’s nervous all the pieces coming together might separate again, I’m choosing to stay uplifted. I’m choosing to be strong in my mind, in my heart and in spirit. Because I believe it’s enough as life continues to expand and bloom.

The Color Process

Pain is temporary if we’re open to healing. Pressure is good if we allow it to shape us in a life-giving way. Growth…. Growth is challenging. And a lifestyle of all three seems to be the challenge of all challenges.

I told you God told me that all of my refinement, development, maturity and growth has led to a bloom. I told you that He said the pain and pressure were about to come full circle and produce something beautiful.

The other day He told me, “Amanda, blooming isn’t painful like growth. To bloom, you have to be in season and ready to go. You have to be ready to open up and show the world your colors. Show them who you are and why you’re this way. A bloom is the prettiest of the process. When a bloom happens everyone sees the beauty that took place during the pain and pressure of growth. People almost believe that the growth period might’ve been easy because the bloom is so beautiful. No one saw the pain, the darkness or the pressure.”

“When you see a plant or a tree, you don’t think, ‘Gosh that plant underwent so much pain and pressure to get to this point.’ No you just look at the beauty and ease of the bloom.. or the fruit. You see what’s coming off of the plant or tree and feel at ease with what you see. You feel peaceful. That’s a bloom Amanda. A constant, yet sweet seasonal reminder of the growth period. Enjoy it!”

And you know… I truly believe what He’s said is truth because I feel so healthy, whole and complete on the inside. It’s almost like the darkness has been completely stripped off of me through His processes so what’s left can be seen in its fullness. And what’s left is light. It’s beauty. It’s incredible, life-giving truth, inspiration and encouragement to keep following His path and plan. To follow even when it’s painfully annoying. To follow even when it’s aggravating and burdensome.

Because the end result… Well it’s just so sweet and beautiful! 🌱 #cultivatelife

Bloom

Refine. Develop. Mature. Grow…

Refine. Develop. Mature. Grow.

This has been the constant flow of my life a decade or more now.

It’s just been this constant reverberation from God to keep moving forward. To keep allowing Him to refine me. Develop me. Mature me. And grow me in all the areas He sees best for my present and future.

But you know what? Last week He said something to me I’d never heard Him say before. He said, “Amanda, it’s time for things to BLOOM. You’ve never really experienced a bloom before, but it’s time!”

BLOOM?!? What?! This has me really excited deep down.

And now I still don’t understand what He entirely means. And I’m certainly not going to go creating scenarios in my head only to be let down by my own expectations. However, BLOOM is such a positive word! It’s full of so much life and color! It’s such a beautiful by-product of what’s been growing for so long under so much pressure and pain.

So if you’ve been following what I write for sometime now, please know that I intend to share all the ends and outs of this spiritual BLOOM! And I’m hoping it will blow my mind in ways I never saw possible! 🌱🌸 #cultivatelife

The Best Way

About 7 years ago I was in college, working on something God had me put my entire self into. The idea He gave me seemed simple; however, I never realized how often I would think about the words He gave me to live by.

“Amanda, the journey you’re about to go on will be very challenging. You can move forward or backward, and you can walk away with what you’ve gained at anytime. However, the goal is to keep moving forward… You must keep moving forward so you can master this ancient way of life. It is the best way.”

In the moment He gave me this wisdom I thought, “This is going to be SO cool and SO much fun! Why would I ever want to quit and walk away? Why would I ever want to move backward?”

It’s funny though… Here I am 7 years later and I have so many moments when I want to just quit and walk away with everything God has given me. I want to take these precious stones of wisdom and just go live my own life. I mean… I’ve gained so much intangible wealth from Him… So do I really need to keep moving forward?!

But then I know the task He gave was to master the lifestyle so then I can give it away to others. Which is why I always stay on the path… I always keep moving forward because I haven’t reached the place where I can fully give what my heart desires to give.

And I don’t know if I’m making any sense; however, what I’m trying to say is this… Living a Spirit led life is the utmost challenging way of life. So many other lifestyles constantly pull at us on a daily basis, reminding us why we should or could stop following the Spirit. But then… Well if we do stop, well I believe our spirit will become stagnant and dull. I believe it will be overcome with soulish comments, questions and concerns. And most importantly, I believe we will begin to die. Maybe not a physical death, but a spiritual one for sure.

So please, be encouraged to always keep pursuing the Holy Spirit and His ways. 🌱🌷 #cultivatelife
