Engaging the Contents of 2022

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, something I’ve been adamantly looking forward to is having the opportunity to sit down with Holy Spirit and gain a clear direction for 2022. So, this morning was the day… The day I would sit down and receive the scroll Heaven has for me and Cultivate Life!

Before I could receive the scroll, I asked Jesus to refine and remove the lies I’ve been believing about myself, others, God and Cultivate Life this year. I also asked Him to show me any coping mechanisms I’ve used along the way to handle the lies I’ve accepted. I wanted to start fresh, with a clean spiritual slate!

In my computer, I made a long list in each category. Then I laid each category before Jesus in the courts of Heaven and asked Him to overturn each and every lie I’ve accepted this year. I also asked Him to burn up every evil timeline attached to the lies, and I declared that all evil trades on the timelines were to immediately cease and desist.

In the midst of this, I saw myself in the driver’s seat of my SUV in a carwash. The water from the wash cleansed every single inch of the car. Mainly, I saw windshield wipers moving dirt away from the glass. I kept thinking, “I can see so much clearer now!! WOW!”

After I left the car wash, I saw a large scroll. Usually, the scrolls I see unroll from the top down, but this one was different. It was rolled on both ends. Like an ancient biblical scroll. The scroll was very big in length. Like the size of blueprints. I saw my angels all piled around a table in great anticipation. I couple of them were jumping up and down and squealing. Then I saw Michael (chief angel of Cultivate Life) bring the scroll to the table. He opened it up and I stood there, prepared to read the contents.

All of a sudden, I heard an angel say, “You need a light.” Then I saw a candle move towards me. It was placed in my spirit’s hand. Then I heard, “It’s ready to be read!”

Before I could read it, Holy Spirit said, “Let’s take it to the garden inside of your mountain.” So, I went there in the spirit. I go here often. It’s actually one of my favorite places to be in the spirit because it contains living stones in every color and sound that look just like peonies (my favorite flower). I sat down next to the stone flowers and heard Holy Spirit say, “Receive the scroll into your heart so that it vibrates with the frequencies of your entire being… So that it reverberates with you all year long.” So, I obeyed.

Right before I read the scroll, He said, “We need to go to the courts of times and seasons. You need to ask what time the scroll is in from times perspective, and what season you are in.” I heard the words, “Chapter. Spring. Two.” I saw pink flowers everywhere. As I heard the word “Two,” the physical alarm on my fridge in my house went off and I ran to the kitchen to fix it. As I walked back to my room, I heard, “The time is now.”

Upon reading the scroll, I asked Allison to come forward. Allison is the head of my business in Heaven. She is within the cloud of witnesses that helps Cultivate Life operate smoothly and function the way it needs to in the Heavens and the Earth. She also works very closely with George (chief angel of my personal life), Michael (chief angel of Cultivate Life) and Topucca (chief advancing angel).

So, Allison came forward with Michael and Lucifer (who is Bridget’s chief angel—- Not the same Lucifer you might be thinking), and I began to engage the scroll.

This is what I asked:

-What are the big things I need to know about the scroll: projects, events, shifts, relationships?

-What needs to change in me (positive & negative) to bring it forward?

-Do I need to change anything financially?

-How do my writings and blog entries need to change?

-If I do all of this, will I be successful?

As I asked these questions, loads of answers began to flow and then several more detailed questions appeared. I obtained answers about projects my sister and I are working on and how to move them forward. I received direction on which relationships need to be pruned out of my life and how to prepare my heart for the ones that are coming in the new year. The scrolls gave me key words for the year and how they will relate to the books I am writing. It told me how I could shape my writing style and make it more engaging for readers, with streams of application. It also revealed how to engage more revelation. Most importantly, it told me I must lean heavily into more intimacy with God. Mainly though, it encouraged me to keep pulling from Heaven like never before. 

You see I believe my greatest asset this year has been my follow into higher realms and dimensions of Heaven. While the world scrambles about in chaos, great confusion and deception, we have the capability to come up higher. Our belief in Jesus gives us access to a spiritual kingdom that needs us to govern over the heavens and the earth. However, the only way to access the spiritual phenomenon, which is the Kingdom of God, is to spend intimate time with Holy Spirit. We should ALWAYS be on the increase of intimacy with Him. This is how new relationships with the quantum, spirit realm of Heaven are established and then cultivated.

So, I am here to encourage you to access Heaven. Ask about your scroll. Ask loads of questions surrounding it. Maybe even follow what I wrote about in this writing and see where it takes you. Also, please don’t be overwhelmed thinking, “Amanda, I don’t have the relationship with God that you have. I can’t hear Him, angels and such like you can. I cannot see into the spirit like that.” But, you have to understand, what I experience has been a process. It’s been a journey of healing and restoration. I didn’t get here overnight. It’s taken cultivation, dedication and discipline. However, I do believe this type of depth and intimacy with Heaven is available to all of us! We can all engage and receive from Him no matter the stage of cultivation we are in!

So, just try! Just try to gain one single word from Him. He needs us you know? He cannot establish the Kingdom in the earth without our help. We are the literal vessels on this planet He is using. And He needs constant relationship with every single one of us, just like we need it with Him! 🌱

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. 🌱

It’s Just Heaven….. Right?

IMG_7685

I had a dream last night and dad was in it… I had a dream last night and he was talking about Heaven.

When I woke up it made me think about the book I gave hime to read right before he was diagnosed, “Heaven is for Real.” The movie was coming to theaters and I made the comment that I had read the book… so I went to my closet and got the book for him…. told him he could read it if he wanted… he read it in one sitting.

It’s funny to think back now about that moment. He was so close to Heaven and none of us thought that was about to become a reality… I think dad did though. He knew deep down within him what was ahead… what was in store for his future.

As Christians we’re taught to be Heaven bound… Heaven drawn…. closer to Heaven today than we were yesterday….. but honestly, well sometimes I wonder why we talk about a place we will be in forever.

If Earth was given to man to have authority over and subdue, then why do we feel this constant need to get away from it and to this so called magical land of perfection? Why can’t we enjoy this thing called time for a while and just live within it?

In a way, shouldn’t time be of value to us because one day we will live in a place without it? Our experience with time will be over so quickly…. I mean years on earth are so limited today.

Plus, why can’t we enjoy what’s around us and actually cultivate a good life?

I remember being in Bible class one time… the teacher was talking about Heaven and the book of Revelation… apparently I was beaming, so she pointed it out, “look how excited Amanda is to get there and be there.” In that moment I was pretty proud of myself. First because I was called out… and second because I was supposed to be excited about Heaven…. Right?

But today, today I feel different towards all of it. Because in so many different ways I want to live my life here on Earth. I know Earth is a difficult place to live on day…. with sickness, disease, wars, terror, fear and the rest… but good things still come out of it everyday.

Life can be good and kind and wonderful if we let it. Plus, it’s supposed to be a roller coaster. How boring would it be if we kept the same pace? How much would we hate it if there weren’t bumps a long the way like sickness, death and divorce? Then we might not learn lessons and become grateful for what we have.

So in so many ways, I am so thankful that we live on Earth…. that we have this advantage to create something special here… because we are going to be there one day.

And…. another thing…. I kind of believe Heaven is all around us. Like dad is around me. He’s not in a specific place…. but more like that place is all around me in another dimension and I can’t see it… but it’s going on everywhere. It’s so close to us, yet we are so far from it with all of the humanness we’ve taken on in being on Earth.

And since it is so close to us… we have a right to get closer to it by becoming better humans, kinder humans, more loving humans…. but I don’t think that our goal should be to become all of those things so we can get closer to Heaven. I think those things should be our goal because we want to make this world a better place… we want it to treat us the way we want to be treated.

And… in the end, when death does decide to become our reality…. we will be in Heaven and surrounded by goodness and love…. but how amazing is it that we get to spend time here…. here on Earth… with limits and boundaries and life lessons?
