Faith Currency

My expanded spirit stepped into a higher frequency of freedom. It stretched out into the newness of its capacity to prepare for all that Heaven was ready to deposit. 

The violent nature of darkness subsided, and I boldly reminded evil that it’s been locked out of my life. 

The evil timeline I’d been caught in for a decade burned in flames as I confidently stepped into God’s ordained timeline for my life.

And then, then revelation began to flow from the scrolls of Heaven like it’s never flowed before. And as it flowed, I asked my angels to help me keep up with the current and the speed of it all. I asked them to show me how to manage and steward the wisdom, knowledge and understanding coming from Heaven properly. I haven’t felt a flow like this since college… Since I created the system Cultivate Life operates from. 

And then one of my angels stepped forward and said, “Remember faith is many things, but most importantly it is currency. It is currency you use when you actively choose to move forward with your words and God’s multiplication principle. Faith is also a conduit by which everything flows. Faith rides on the frequency of Heaven. 

Think of faith as a boat that’s traveling downstream. The boat has a destination route. You are conducting the boat. The current of the water is determined by exterior forces (wind, rain, other boats, people, etc.) surrounding it. However, sometimes, actually a lot of the time, the boat will change the speed it moves by increasing the acceleration. When you accelerate the boat, it moves faster.

The same is true with faith. Faith is currency moving across frequency. The frequency is determined by surrounding forces (angels, demons, principalities, grids, nodes, glory, fault lines, lay lines, realms, dimensions, timelines and much, much more). However, you can accelerate the faith currency from within your own heart. When your heart is aligned in a position of stillness, worship and the goodness of God, the faith currency will move faster.

This is why Holy Spirit told you to take the summer to focus in on stillness and the goodness of God. The glory manifested in Heaven will in fact align your faith currency in a higher way! It will have more value and be able to work at an accelerated rate. Then, when the glory of Heaven is attached, the faith currency zips past all of the interference. Which is why it’s soooo good that you use your arche (my own personal realm/domain/magistrate) to clean the spiritual grids and nodes of your city and state. It’s helping the acceleration of what you’re seeing move faster. It’s getting the job of Heaven done in a more efficient and effective way.

So, stay in the stillness. Stay in the goodness. Remain in the glory place. And keep sewing the faith currency. You will see lots of things change.” 🌱

Deposit Here Please

I once had a mentor say, “Amanda, I know what you are going through is rough and quite challenging, but I also believe God is depositing something deep within you through it all.”

Now, I’m going to be completely honest… I kind of hated what she said. I mean, I really wanted her to say something like, “It’ll all be over soon. Here’s why this is happening.” I wanted a quick solution to make the challenge go away. But… she just didn’t provide that.

Instead she provided me with a word… And that word has been one of the most helpful words for my personal growth in life.

You see… When I think of the word deposit I always think of a seed being dropped into fertile soil in the ground. And then I think… “Gosh that little seed has to face some giant changes with many challenges a long the way. I mean… It has to grow. It has to develop. It has to mature into the plant or tree God designed it to be. What a journey it’s on!!”

But ya know?.. I think that’s how we are when we chose to cultivate life!

Which is why… When I’m in a situation I can’t seem to find my way out of I almost always think, “What is God depositing inside of my heart? What is He giving me that I can turn around and use for good to help someone else in the future?”

And I know it’s not always easy… And I know we don’t all like to think of the positive side of life… However, I do believe it’s very healthy to discover what He’s depositing inside of you. Because what He’s left in you is viable and good for LIFE! 🌷🌱 #cultivatelife #justlive

Prep Mode

What happens when stepping out with God doesn’t feel like it’s enough? How do you manage the reality of, “Well I’m doing everything He said to do. What else is there? Shouldn’t I feel whole and complete and ready?!?!”

Because I feel like I’m always in prep mode. Like I’m always aiming to prepare for this game that He says is going to be eventually played out.

But then there’s so much practice. And within the practice and preparation He expects me to bring everything I have and all that I am to the table.

So I keep my head down and listen. I share my world and my thoughts because He says, “Share them.” I don’t do it for others. I do it for Him.

Because I know He’s watching every movement as I continue to practice. And I believe every movement will continue to create a beautiful work of art for His glory alone.

The only hang up is me. Me and what I see. You see… I want to see myself transformed into the best version of me He can bring me to. And I want to keep sharing who I am with all of my faults, twists, turns and victories.

And while I won’t always get it right or do it the best way. Sharing the journey and the moment I’m in is all I really have right now… 🌷🌿 #cultivatelife #justlive

Needy Necklace…

When I turned 16 all I wanted was a digital camera for my birthday… They were new… They were exciting… Plus no one I knew really had one yet…

So when I went to open my gifts on my birthday I was convinced my parents bought me one…

As I prepared to open the last gift, I kept thinking, “The packaging is too small for a camera. Maybe it’s just super small and sleek.”

But the more I tore back the paper the more and more I was disappointed to find a small, black jewelry box…

On inside was the most beautiful necklace I’ve ever received… A heart with alternating diamonds and sapphires… It was a stunning piece… Something my parents wanted me to have as a sign of maturity since I was turning 16…

But there I sat… Trying to be as “excited” as I could be… But then on the inside I was full of disappointment because I didn’t receive what I wanted at all…

Now it’s taken me a few years and a lot of maturity to realize that that necklace is something I appreciate dearly… It’s so precious to my heart and soul… Especially now that my dad is gone…

But something that makes it even more valuable are the lessons it’s taught me throughout the years…

To me it is a symbol of identity because it’s filled with sapphires fitting for my birthday month of September… But then it’s also come to help me accept deeper revelation God has taught me about who I am in Him… Who He’s created me to be and sees me as in His eyes…

Now today I sit in life… Completely disappointed with what God keeps handing me… I want adventure… I want to live… In so many ways, I keep expecting to unwrap a digital camera type of life from Him… Something that let’s me go free from this chapter I am in…

But upon opening everything He’s given me I seem to discover something that’s actually very different… Something that resembles my diamond and sapphire necklace… Something filled with precious value and meaning and identity… Something that He has decided I am mature enough for…

Now my heart is touched by His constant gift of shaping me and molding me into who He needs me to be… But then my soul is severely disappointed because I wanted what was cool, hip and ever evolving…

So I’m left with these questions in mind… What happens when you don’t get what you so desperately want in life, but you do get what you so apparently need? How do you respond to it? How do I continue to make sense of this time in life where I feel somewhat angry and disappointed because I want God to give me what I want, not what I need? How can I be at peace with the fact that He is providing me with what’s of value, not what is easy to come by because it’s part of our current culture? And… How do I actually embrace, “If God sees me mature enough for these gifts, I must be. Even though I don’t feel it or see it or clearly see it at all?”

Being You… Complex?

What’s the biggest challenge of being you? Is it accepting yourself? Loving yourself? Or possibly just being confident in who you are?

What happens when the biggest challenge within you is interchangeable with the person you are at your core? The very essence of you?

For me… As Amanda Nicole…. My biggest challenge of being me is being confident in who I am… And yeah, it’s been an evolution of sorts… But when I dig deep, I know in truth that I’m still not the confident woman I so hope to be…

Now, the person I am at my core is well… To me the person I am, the One I hope to reflect the most is God… His heart… The deepest part of who He is… The purest part of who He is… A place so deep that it takes a walk through fire to truly obtain it in its fullness…

So, my biggest challenge is not just being confident in me, it’s deeper.. Much more complex… It’s being confident in God… In the ways of God… In the ways of His heart…

And it sounds kind of simple… Trust in God… Follow Him… Believe in Him…

But what happens when your heart cries out for more? What happens when the God in you wants more? When He’s asking you to go deeper… To just walk a little bit closer to that fire… To really experience the refine of that burn?

For me… This is my continued challenge at hand… To allow God to keep refining me… To refine me until I am all of myself, but then myself looks nothing like me and everything like Him…

It’s not an easy walk… It’s a challenge that takes days… Weeks… Months… It’s taken years… Heartbreak, loss and severe failure…

But I need this walk… I need it just as much as it needs me… And I don’t know what I’ll “do” with it all, but I do believe it is so rewarding… So meaningful… So purposeful… And it’s allowing me to be confident in Him and ALL of His ways…

High Tide…


Do you ever have moments… Really days… That sometimes feel like they’ve morphed into weeks… And weeks that seem like they’ve evolved into months… I’m talking about the kind that continue to roll in on you… The kind that you can’t seem to turn off… And the force of them all together is about to knock you over?…

In so many ways, well I feel like that’s what life is right now… I feel like I am standing on the shoreline and that there is a storm raging around my feet… And all I can seem to do is stand still because standing still is the only hope I have of keeping my balance in the sand as the tide rolls in…

And, at times, I feel like the tide is rolling in faster than I can keep up with… And it’s taking strength that isn’t even my own to stand sturdy… To be strong…

There’s a quote… Well actually a verse out of Proverbs that I’ve continued to live my life by lately, “she is clothed in strength and dignity; and she can laugh without fear of failure at the days to come”…

Because I feel like every ounce of strength and dignity I posses in this moment… This moment where the high tide of life could knock me down… Well I know it’s all coming from God… That He’s allowing me to stand tall… To be firm and secure and not falter in the midst of what feels so equally strong and oppositional…

And then there’s the reality that, after the storm is over, once we’ve made it through and life itself has become a peaceful place… Well then the tide will recede too… And the amazing thing about the tide receding is the reality that there will be a giant deposit left…

On the beach the deposit is a massive amount of sea treasures, like shells, sand dollars and little critters… But I feel like in life the same is true… Because for so many reasons, well if we can simply remain firm in God… In His peace, love, hope, righteousness, confidence and security… If we can be clothed in strength and dignity and wear them well in the storm… Well then we can laugh without fear of failure at the future ahead because we know deep down that a deposit is being made… And that deposit is something very, very, very good… A deposit that only God can leave behind for us… That only He can wash ashore in the midst of the confusion and chaos we feel…

And I don’t know if you feel like life is swirling in an endless circle of doom right now or not… But I feel like that… But in the midst of it all, I trust and believe with everything in me that, when the storm lets up and the water recedes there will be treasure laying in the sand… And at that point, it’s mine to pick up, claim and use in my life and for my future…
