Spirit Chronicles: Tired and Afraid

I had a dream that I was very tired and stuck at the bottom of a mountain. It was a long ways to the summit and had to be climbed to get to the other side. My left hip was hurting really bad and I looked up and thought “I may not be able to do this”. But I knew I had to try so I began to climb the hill step by step, foot by foot until I started to struggle. I looked to my left and a man was standing beside me and was smiling. I get this smiling man alot and he is one of my guardians and he was urging me to keep pushing and not give up.

I looked to my right and there stood another guardian, a female spirit that is ancient and she shows up when I am in need of motivation and inspiration. She looked at me and pointed to the top of the mountain which told me to push onward. My hip hurt so bad and I struggled up the hill, bit by bit stopping as needed until I made it to the top. I had a wonderful view that was only of God waiting for me. Everywhere I looked I saw beuatiful white light, wonderful white clouds and crystal blue skies.

Then I looked down the mountain trail was steep and thin but I knew I could do it. I began down the mountain and I fell and landed on a ledge overlooking a beautiful waterfall. I gathered myself, stood up and pushed down the mountain with my guardians in tow. We made it to the bottom and my hip, knee and back were hurting really bad so I laid down in a field of yellow, purple, red and green flowers to rest. I looked up and the sun went down behind the mountain and I fell asleep lying there.

Spirit Chronicles: Spiritual Support from Beyond

Featured

One of the things that I can sense, feel, detect, pickup on and see is spirit that surrounds people all the time. This is spirit that has moved on from the earth and are now part of the spiritual realm from Heaven to the earth. Spirit is in constant motion and flows to and from what it considers to be Heaven and the earth. These are generally loved ones that have departed this life that hold special feelings and love for those of us left on Earth in this realm. It is typically an immediate loved one and at times may be someone that has been assigned as a guardian Angel.

I have several gaurdian Angels that have moved on and feel them around me often. My mom and dad are two of my guardians combined with a great grandmother and an old man from the past that watches over me. I have a friend that knows about the spirit gift I have and everytime I see him spirit wanting me to communicate with them comes at me hard. They touch my arm, mess with my hair and send me messages that they are around. This week I was talking to him and felt the same spirit that shows up and immediately started rubbing my head because it tickles me. He recognized that I was having a spirit moment and smiled and started to walk away.

He is a great friend and very supportive of me but it creeps him out a bit when this happens. Unlike many gifted spiritual people I do not immediately hear voices or see the folks as my skills are still growing and I have not been able to hone in on spirit signals like many that can do that. I simply feel them touch me, walk up to me and on occasion catch a quick glimpse of them. I am intrigued by this situation with him and want so bad to be able to tell him who it is. Often I do not let him know that spirit signal is happening out of respect for him and not to mess with his mind any.

As I write I feel spirit touching me right now and I know it is a good spirit and it feels like one of my guardians. But it could be any spirit as we live on a property with huge power lines that carry tons of energy that spirits can use to signal with. It takes tremendous energy for them to do that before they and myself get very tired. It happens all day long at random with those I know and do not know. Somtimes it ovewhlems me and I just have to clear the area. Since September when I died and came back during a procedure I have developed or had the following spirit signs.

Dreams, Visions, Spirit Touch, Poking Me, Quick visual imprints, Vocal Signs, Tunneling (I see a tunnel of light full of spirit) and several other spirit signals. I am working to hone in and figure out what I am and who I am and how I can use this gift to help people find God, peace and blessings from those that have departed. Along with this comes the bad also. The occasional bad dream, demons messing with me, temptations and mean spirits literally punching me in the gut, stabbing pain, headaches and body pain. I can ride by an area where a bad wreck happened and pick up on the pain felt. That sucks at times, but it is part of what I am now. I am protected by Angels, Guardians and God and blessed to help those that might not otherwise be able to help themselves.

I pray each of you have peace, prossperity, strength, good health, emotional stability and the vigor to pursue life and your dreams with Gods help.

Spirit Chronicles: 12 Angels and The Message of Acts

Featured

I went to bed and said a prayer for guidance and a sign from God about whatever he wanted me to see or tell people. I fell asleep and immediately had a dream about Angels and the Acts in the Bible. I asked the Angel what the message was and he told me that nothing would happen until the Acts were finished. I went back and read the Acts again to see what I could get from that information. The dream was 12 Golden Angels standing around the thrown of God. I could make out the Angels and see the Throne but the light was so bright that I could not stare at the area if the throne. It was a beautiful light that I wanted to go to and as I stepped towards it that is when the Angel told me “not until the Acts are completed”.

The book of Acts was written with several key messages and themes. The main theme that hit me was that in Acts the 12 Disciples were established. The 12 men I saw may have been the Disciples of Jesus. Acts speaks to the establishment of the church and the founding beliefs of Jesus and his influence on the nations. There are five key principles to the book of Acts. Prayer, witnessing, the established church, the Holy Spirit and the growth of the church across the world. Acts tells us about Jesus ascension into Heaven and how he becomes the right hand of God the father, son and holy ghost.

I beleive this dream was a biblical message that the church still has much growth to do and that the world has turned its ways from God and growing the church and the spirit of God. The 12 Angels are holy and assigned to bring the message and peace of God to the world. I will be reading the book of Acts again and know that this message is direct and to the point that we the people need to turn to God and do better as a whole. We need to seek God and be disciples of his word. Angels in your dreams are a sign of divine intervention and spiritual awakening.

The number 12 signifies a need to focus on spiritual growth, physical health and emotional stability in life. 12 means big changes in life and spiritual awakening. I have been experiencing that growth since I died during a heart procedure in September of 2020. I am glad God has plans for me and look forward to his many messages and heavenly notices going forward.

Americana- Football, Family, Friends and Faith

Featured

There are three things that have been a part of my family tradition for what seems forever and a day. Football, Family, Friends and faith are all part of my American dream. For millions of Americans these four F’s have become part of what we know as the annual right of passage from early September to the Middle of February. For many of us that have grown up playing the best game on earth (American Football), yes the one that you hit and tackle people while playing. It all begins with kids playing in the backyard, in the road, a field or on a hill at a friday night varsity home game. We all began out football career by tackling, rolling down hills, getting smashed up, hit, beat on and ran over by our older siblings, cousins and best buds.

Then we start playing little league, pee wee or pop warner depending on where you live and what it is called. That is when it starts getting more serious and we have to learn to be the best we can, be tough, have faith in ourselves and learn a system of depending on family and friends. Then we go to middle school and it gets even more serious. Throw in some AAU travel football and it is feeling for real then. Teamwork, family, friends and faith become part of who we are as we battle with each other and for one another. We represent our communities, families, schools, teams and neighborhoods the best we can.

Then high school comes along and many of those that played younger begin to drop like flies. Suddenly it is more than a game. It has become something bigger than the individual and is truly a family and team sport. Families line up outside and pay the gate fee to support their kids and neighbors. They tailgate eating good food enjoying family and friends before the big game. The players, coaches and fans fellowship on preparation for the big battle about to take place. Football teaches us how to win, lose, battle, fight, overcome, endure and be a better person. It teaches us to have faith in ourselves, family, community, friends and God.

Then some of us work hard enough to play on Saturdays in front of big crowds at various levels. Some in big time arenas in front of 100,000 people at the highest level. We see the blessing in that and how fortunate we were to be able to do that playing a game that we simply love. Others play small ball in front of a few hundred people in the stands. Either way, the game is played hard and means just as much regardless of the size of the stadium or arena. Regardless of the level of ball it is about football, family, friendships and faith. I developed all of these playing ball from pee wee to mid level college football.

I have stood on the sidelines as a player, coach and parent hearing the national anthem which still gives me the goose bumps on Friday night. I have played, coached and watched high level ball. I have played, coached and watch low level ball. All in all I have found that football, family, friends and faith are what has made me who I am today. I am a piece of Americana because of Football. God Bless football, family, friends and faith!

Spirit Chronicles: Three Old Ladies

Featured

I saw three old ladies in my dream. One of them was sitting in a chair and the other two were standing over her and she was begging for food. One of them held food just outside of her mouth and when she opened up the lady pulled it away and laughed at her. The other lady held some gross looking food outside of the ladies mouth and when she tried to lick it to taste it she pulled it back and threw it on the ground. The lady being taunted looked at me and her eyes were very sad. You could see the sadness and emotion in her eyes and expression. She was a dead spirit and had been in a nursing home and the other ladies had been mean to her.

The ladies continued to taunt her with the food until she finally looked away and when she did they smashed it into her face and mouth forcing her to eat it. As she cried and wept uncontrollably the others laughed at her and were speaking in an unknown language. The lady in the chair opened her mouth and one of them tried to feed her and she bit down on the fingers of the lady holding the food and began to chew on them. The lady whose fingers were in the mouth of the chair lady just laughed as if it did not hurt her or bother her at all.

This went on for a while and I tried to tell the ladies to leave her alone so I stepped infront of the lady but the others were able to reach through me. I finally began to pray and said in God’s name leave her alone and when I did the others turned their glare to me and laughed. I repeated in “God’s name” leave us alone and the ladies screamed and turned away. That is when I knew they were demons and were there to torture the woman and were trying to get under my skin.

I held my ground and stood there quoting Bible verses and the more I did the madder they got and the farther away they went. Finally they left and the other lady in the chair sat there and started to smile. She was telling me thank you but could not speak. The plate of food was near the chair on a small table and she looked at it and opened her mouth. I knew she was hungry so I reached down and grabbed some food and put it to her lips. Then she opened her mouth and I woke up. I knew the old lady, but just could not figure out who she was or think of a name. I helped her and prayed for her that she move into the light and feast on God’s eternal light in heaven.

Spirit Chronicles: The Golden Flood Gate

Featured

I dreamed about a huge Golden gate that was holding back tons of beautiful water. The water was crystal clear and clean. It had no contamination and was pure of anything. It was the most beautiful water anyone could ever see. It was thousands of feet deep and came from deep into the earth. It was held back by a humongous gate that was made of gold. There were two huge Angels standing at the ends of the gate watching over it and they were the protectors. Another man was also standing there and he was looking out over the land that water was about to cover.

People were walking about doing their day to day life activity and many were doing things that they should not be doing. He pointed to them and some would shy away or wave him off. Others would acknowledge him and started to walk towards him up a ladder towards the huge Golden gate dam. The others continued to do as they pleased laughing, pointing back and mocking the gate guardian. One by many of the people climbed the ladder and went to safety away from the gate to higher ground.

The others soon began to be swept up by these black shadowy figures that placed them in cages. They were so wrapped up in themselves and the things they were doing that they got caught up in the sin of the world and did not seek to climb the ladder. After millions climbed the ladder to safety and the other millions of people were caged, tied down or unable to climb because the sins of the world they had committed with flesh, drugs, violence, self loathing and other sins held the in bondage. Even in bondage and struggling they would not seek the guardian the Golden gate.

Then the guardian of the gate told the two Angels to let the dam go. They pulled the dam and millions of gallons of that beautiful water began to sweep across the land and wash those tied down, in cages and bound up away and under the water. One by one the water washed them away or under and the cleansing of the earth had begun. Those that climbed the ladder stood and sang songs of praise to God and prayed for the lost ones that were being swept away by the waters. The water consumed the earth and it was flooded that beautiful water stayed pure of any contamination.

The gate was ordered closed and the flooding stopped and the earth was a sea of beautiful water and those that had been saved and came to the guardian of the gate were given new lands more beautiful than anything the earth had ever seen. Trees as tall as skyscrapers began to grow with multicolored flowers. Gardens of plenty were growing all over the earth and the water was going away revealing glory and heaven on earth. Watch for the guardian of the gate and go to him before the gates are opened.

Football Time Again

Featured

After two years away from coaching football. I have accepted the role of Head Football coach at Thomasville Middle School. I am excited to get back into the sport as a head coach on my terms. I stood on the sidelines in 2019 after a tough playoff loss as an assistant at Thomasvile High School and decided it was time to step away for a while to see where things were going. I had been a community coach. college coach, Varsity assistant, JV Head Coach, Interim Varsity Head coach (2X) and coordinator during my football coaching career. I had a goal from the time I was in high school to become a high school head football coach but the cards never seemed to fall in the right place at the right time.

I had come to a point where the game I had played or coached since I was seven years old was no longer exciting and felt like the career had come to a close on the sidelines. I had a bad back, bad knees, was overweight and was just tired. I had coached 2-3 sports (football, wrestling and softball) a year for ten plus and was just wore out physically and mentally. I needed to get healthy, be with my family and just relax. I needed time to heal and grow as a person, husband, father, teacher and mentor. I needed me time and have enjoyed the last two years more relaxed with no seven day a week football work schedules, Sunday afternoon film sessions and an additional 30-40 hours a week of practice and game time.

I know that God is good and he leads us in the direction we need to go in life. We follow his lead by following our heart and his word.. After much thought, prayer and my family’s blessing it is time to put some more energy and time into the the game that has given so much to me and my family. To achieve our goals in life we must put time, energy, patience and hard work into it. To make it to our final goal we have to be willing to put in the work and build ourselves up in preparation for that.

I want to Thank my wife Cindy for her blessing to get back into the sport I have loved for so long. God is leading me where I need to go and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to coach again and being sought after feels really good. It will be an honor to coach football again. I cannot wait to hear the national anthem just before the game. Watch the boys run on and off the field, compete, work hard and see what happens on game day. Look into the bleachers and see my family sitting there rooting the team on. Those are the things that make the game so special. It is football time once again for me and step in the direction I always wanted to go.

Spirit Chronicles: Obstacles In The Road

Featured

I dreamed I was walking into school and everywhere I looked there were obstacles standing in the way. I walked around them, through them and over them and they kept popping up. A man was standing beside me walking with me and he kept looking at me and smiling as if to motivate me to keep pushing forward. I cleared those obstacles and kept walking out to my car and in the parking lot were the same obstacles. One by one I cleared them and kept pushing forward. I climbed, went around, crawled and did what I had to do to get to my car. I made it to my car and cleared the parking lot and when I got into the car I saw a lady behind me sitting in the back seat and she just smiled at me.

I started driving down the road heading home and then obstacles started falling in the road. I was driving my jeep and I used it to run around, run over and knock things out of the way. These obstacles were of various shapes, sizes and colors. They were made of foam or some kind of light material like a building block that kids play with. These obstacles were more of an annoyance than anything to me. I knew I could get past them but I had to push forward and not give up. The guardian with me just kept smiling at me and wanted me to keep going.

I knew that I had some obstacles coming from another dream or vision that I had and was waiting on this to happen. It had been a month or so and I was in waiting of the dream to show me what type of obstacles were coming. It was kind of an ah hah moment for me and let me know that I was prepared mentally, physically and spiritually to handle what may come at me down the road. I had been in prayer for guidance and direction on some things in life around career, family, finances and such and this was a positive step in the right direction. It gave me hope, focus and motivation to continue to push towards my goals in life with physical, mental and spiritual health.

Isiah 57:14; And it shall be said, “Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people’s way.”

Jeremiah 6:21; Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will lay before this people stumbling blocks against which they shall stumble; fathers and sons together, neighbor and friend shall perish.’”

Faith- Finding Gods Will In Your Life

Featured

In my reading today I was looking at how to follow or find God’s will in life. I have to admit that I often ask for God to influence my life and give me his direction. However, I am not so sure that I have been doing that for the right reasons. I think as humans we often seek things and ask for things because it will possibly fill a void we have or allow us to advance in life. I know in my heart of hearts that I want God’s will to be in my life and after thinking about it, studying the word and praying I have come to a clearer understanding about how to seek that will and guidance in my life.

The Bible tells us about many promises God made to us and one of those is that he will use us for his work and give us guidance in the process. God also allows us to make our own choices and I know personally speaking I have often went the wrong way, took the wrong path or stepped backwards instead of forward. To move forward we must step beyond our past and learn from those missed steps and stages God had set up for us in our lives. For me it is a combination of a few things being a goal driven teacher, coach, father and mentor I have personal goals that may not have always lined up to what God expected of me. I work hard and value being a good man, friend, husband, father, teacher and coach. So I think I over halfway there but have a long ways to go to achieve what God wants me to achieve.

In Psalm 32 the Bible tells us that we should allow God to instruct us and guide us. We can do that by listening to his still small voice and doing as he wants us to and not as we want to. I pray daily for Gods grace, mercy, guidance and will and he is working hard on me and my family. He makes me a better man everyday with his support. I put together a list of things that I need to do to become the best I can be from a perspective of Gods will in my life and not just what I want to achieve as a professional teacher, writer, blogger, coach, mentor and family man. With Gods will in my life and by opening up to that he will enable me to grow my physical, spiritual and mental capacity to seek his will.

1- Be in prayer daily asking for God’s will in my life

2- Read the word daily. Seek his will by diving into his word and growing in wisdom from the word.

3- Follow the commands God puts in our hearts. I have to do better at following his will and not my own.

4- Seek to live in a Godly community and surround myself with God loving people.

5- Truly be open to God’s will and guidance and submit to his word and will.

Proverbs 16:3; Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established.

Proverbs 3:5-6; Trust in the Lord with all your heart. And lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him. And he shall direct your paths.

Spirit Chronicles: Light Orbs

Featured

Last night I took the dogs out to the bathroom prior to bed time and was struck with the feeling of something or someone being all around me. Out property is very spiritual and some old land and as I noticed whoever was touching my head and arm I pulled my camera out to take a few pictures and videos. I walked around the yard and snapped some pictures and made a few short videos as the “spidy senses” I call them continued to accelerate. I saw a light orb close to me and then it came by my camera and I hoped that I caught it and to my surprise I did.

Actually it came in front of my camera four times during the period of about five minutes of video. You may say it was probably a bug or a trick of the light. I am quickly becoming a veteran spirit hunter and assumed it to be a bug myself. I sat down at the computer, downloaded the video and went through it frame by frame and there it was a light orb “white” light which tells me it was a positive spirit right there on film. I stopped it, edited it and made it larger and it was an obvious “light orb” and not a bug. It was fast and came and went within a few seconds.

An untrained eye would not have caught it but I have been doing this awhile so I was able to see it. At one point of the video I asked it to show itself because I could sense it around me. About five seconds after that request the white orb came into the view of the camera lens on my phone. It went across and back and then came up and down a little later. As I walked around the yard a few more orbs appeared in the video at different phases and were gone quickly. I will be out there tonight with the camera to see if I can catch it again to try and debunk the video I made yesterday.

I have caught voices on recorders, EMF detections and other video than last night. The land we live on is very spiritual and has lots of activity so I am excited about what I can see, hear and film in the future and trying to figure out who the light orb is and what it wants. I have to be careful as well, but my senses can help me be guided as to how to deal with and what I am dealing with. I was told by an advisor to look for orbs and they are finally showing up for me as I make the transition into working with the spirit realm.

Americana- Off Shore Fishing With Dad

Featured

Growing up and into my late 30’s we always took family vacations to the beach. When we did my dad, brothers and I would take a day trip with a Captained boat to go out and do some off shore fishing. My dad loved to fish and we often would catch the limit on about every fish we got into to. The last trip we took before my dad got where he could barely see and walk was on a boat called the Captain Stacy. We went out of Morehead City, NC into the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean about 25 miles off the coast of North Carolina.

My dad, two brothers and myself went on this trip. After about a three or four hour boat ride out into the Atlantic into 150-300 feet deep water we put our lines in and soon began to catch Dolphin (not flipper folks) but the actual fish called a Dolphin. We then got into some Amberjack which are big and strong and give one hell of a fight to get into the boat. We fished out the limit on both of those so we moved into some deeper water in search of some bigger game fish.

We put anchor down and suddenly things got hot again and we hit a school of Spanish and King Mackerel and hit the individual limit on both of them. I cannot remember I think it was like 5-7 per person and we had a good time tearing them up and getting them on board the boat. Mackerel is a bony fish that doesn’t eat that well so we gave them to the people who show up everyday at the local docks when the boats come in so they could eat them.

The day continued and we found ourselves surrounded by five or six other boats because we were hitting the fish hard and catching them like crazy on every cast. Other than a few that broke the line or fought off we tore them up that day. Late in the day before coming back in for the three hour return trip we hooked into a large shark. My dad fought it first and then one by one we took turns fighting that beast. It breached the water three times to let us get a hint of his size and power but we never could get it close to the boat.

The last time the shark jumped out of the water three hours later as it was still fighting the Captain got a good glimpse of it and determined based on his experience that we had hooked a 8-10 foot long Tiger Shark that likely weighed in the area of 400-600 pounds. He told us we would not get that thing on the boat and it was best to cut it loose and let it go. He also reminded us that it was getting late in the afternoon and we needed to head back before it got dark. The last thing he said was we really don’t want that full grown adult shark close to a 30 foot boat anyways.

It was big enough to pull the boat around and mean. One huge, lean, mean eating machine. So we cut the line and let it go. That shark won the battle that day as he proceeded to wear all of us out. One by one he kicked our butts and sent us packing and we are all healthy and strong men. My dad was older but was still a 6’4 340 pound mans man and the most experienced of us all and it wore him down also. Just as we were cutting the line my brother hooked a good size fish and as he was reeling it in and just as it was coming out of the water it got hit by another Tiger shark.

This one was not as big but was mean and about 6-7 feet long and he was a monster. He bit the 18 inch long fish in half and kicked his tail at us as to say better stay on that boat. As a kid I spent lots of time in the ocean playing, swimming and fishing for two weeks every summer. But that sunny day in July showed me a life lesson that we are humans and are meant to be on a boat and not in that water out there. We may be the ultimate predator on ground, but those big sharks are the rulers of the deep. They can have the deep water and I will stay my big butt right in the shallows where it belongs.

We lost dad in 2009 and man would I love to fight another big shark or just catch a few pond bass with him. One of these days we will fish again. Dad, thanks for the memories growing up at the beach. Thanks for teaching us how to fish, be men of faith and take care of our families like you did for so long. Happy fishing in Heaven dad!

Love, Hugs and Kisses in Heaven!
