Outpour of Holy Spirit

Help is needed! Share your Holy Spirit Experience

Many of us know what it feels like to experience the presence of Holy Spirit.   However, there are a lot of individuals who have never experienced or are unsure of a Holy Spirit presence.

We know Holy Spirit manifests in different ways to different people. I thought it would be nice to help those who do know, have an idea of the presence of Holy Spirit.  By sharing how Holy Spirit revealing Himself in our lives, we are helping others experience the beautiful presence of Holy Spirit.  Let us make Holy Spirit be reality in as many lives as we can.

My goal is to compile a list of the various ways people experience Holy Spirit and make it available to people free of charge.

Leave a comment by sharing your experience of what it feels like. Imagine how many people lives can be touched when they read your experience.   We are blessed if we have experienced so let us be a blessing to someone.

Proverbs 11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

There is absolute no right or wrong way, please do not be shy, be a blessing to someone by sharing your experience.

5 Benefits of a Meltdown

5 Benefits of a Meltdown

How can a meltdown have a purpose or better yet be of some benefit, you ask?    First things first,   emotional meltdowns do not usually happen overnight but is a progression of time and circumstances.   Meltdowns are normally indications you are not aligned with your core. You are off center and balance. You have gotten to the point of feeling out of control.   

Though meltdowns surface in different ways among people,however there are common triggers that set emotional meltdowns into action.    Most of these triggers cause an individual to go into overload, causing the person to have an outburst, a release of stress and a need for a huge “exhale”.    The following are some of the triggers that bring on the onset of an emotional meltdown.  The major onset is stress, these stress may come from   tiredness, inability to make a decision, the immune system is weak, and of course anxiety.    Next are a few outcomes of emotional meltdowns: uncontrollable crying;   excessive lashing out at others (warranted or not), outburst of screams, throwing objects, and anything extreme that takes an individual out of character.   

Whatever the case may be, emotional meltdowns are warning signs we should not ignore. They are teaching moments in which present an opportunity for the individual to positively evaluate their perception of life.

Purpose and benefits of the meltdown

  1.  Source seeker – many times meltdowns are triggered by very insignificant situations.  This is the time to really delve into what cause that minor situation to become a mountain that caused an explosion.
  2. I needed that – don’t just leave it at “I needed that” dig deeper into the truth, why was it needed.
  3. Release – meltdowns normally are fueled because of excessive pint up negative feelings and emotions.  It is not healthy to suppress all “negative” emotion.    Find a process in which a routinely release of such behavior can be handled in a positive way.
  4. Moving beyond –  meltdowns give an opportunity to view a situation at a different angle.   Having released that pinned up emotion allows you to see how you could better handle circumstances so that you limit you experiences of meltdowns.
  5. Hear now –   when the negative emotions are released out of the body’s system, it now allows for the voice of GOD to be heard more clearly.

  3. Talk to someone – talking to some is always helpful, especially talking to someone who is neutral in the situation.   Sometime just verbalizing it to someone can give you a better sense of the situation. 
  4. Avoid individuals – If it certain people that cause the meltdown, eliminate or at least limit contact with individual that cause you to become unglued.

Why Recovering Your Path and not Discovering Your Path?
I asked GOD the same thing, this is what was downloaded. To discover is to obtain sight or knowledge of for the first time. According to the dictionary to recover is to find or regain possession of (something is stolen or lost) or return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength.

GOD pointed me to Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

We are all created with a plan, GOD’s plan. He desires that we recover our divine path designed for each individual so we live a life of truth, peace, and harmony
