It Works When You Use It. 

Prayer. 

So The Feast Of Passover passed, I automatically got extremely busy.  I haven’t been able to connect in the way I desire with you all! So many goals needed to be met, so many changes occurring, oh my! Lol. I literally would come home just wanting to knock out and not desire to talk to anyone. I did not like that. Something was wrong. I don’t ever want to give my all to this world and not have anything else for those I love. It felt so wrong.

However, being so busy caused a development within me to want more prayer because I earnestly needed it then, and I still need it now. 

Man.

Prayer works. 

Despite fatigue, getting on my knees brought forth strength, humility, happiness and longevity to push! I pushed alright lol! I PRAYED UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENED. 

All this to say:

When you’re full, I hope you’re praying. And when you’re empty I hope you’re praying. 

Whatever it is, go before Yahweh with praise, thanks, offerings, confessions, requests and more. 

“Do not worry at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim.” Philippians 4:6‬ 

“And in the same way the Spirit does help in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groanings unutterable. And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the set-apart ones according to Elohim.” Romans 8:26-27‬ 

Spring Cleaning Time! 

Peace and love y’all! 

I’m so excited to write about my favorite time of the year…SPRING

Flowers are blooming, leaves are growing and dancing, rain showers are here and it’s getting warmer. Well, at least on some days. This sister is still wearing winter coats here and there.

Before I knew I was a Hebrew Yisraelite, this time of the year mattered to me in a natural sense. Why? Because it just felt new. Come on, bright colors and beautiful flowers return. I love flowers and nature so much, thus I love to watch the plants & flowers bloom to be beautiful and become their purpose. There’s much symbolism there. Such as obedience, joy, order, and peace. (But that’s another blog post!)

What I do enjoy about spring or the arrival of it is….


Yesterday I can home from work early and decided that I can start cleaning out my closets and dressers. I let go of clothes, shoes, papers I thought took space and no longer needed. Then the thought was placed in my mind that spring cleaning is so deeper than searching my closet! 

Spring cleaning has a lot of symbolism in it for me in a spiritual sense that I’d like to share. 

Cleaning out my things is symbolic to purging my life, like a detox. Today, I went through my clothes and belongings to see what I use or don’t use, what’s taking up space and what’s useful. It helps declutter and just bring about a renewed peace. Letting go is apart of the process, and depending on your will, that can be the hardest part of the process. But we’ve got to clean up! 

Being a Hebrew Yisraelite, I recognize that the Feast of the Most High Yah, Passover is approaching. Spiritually, it is a time of self-reflection to see if there be leaven/sin (yeast) in my heart. And when sin is acknowledged, the purging begins. This is similar to throwing things out, The Most High takes an active part in His people’s lives by showing them their sins. 

“Search me, O Ěl, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts; And see if an idolatrous way is in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalms 139:23-24

In becoming a better woman, I want to let go of so much that binds me to the old girl I used to be. It takes more than writing this blog. Just as cleaning out a room can take up time (depending on the clutter) purging takes action/work. 

I’m so grateful for spring! I’m so grateful for this new year! 

If you desire to become a better woman, while you search your closets, search your heart for any negativity you’ve been harboring. My hope is that you let it go and gain positivity . 

Shalom!

 

Intentional.

My childhood was something like this: wake up, go to school, go to church, play sports, dance, sing, repeat. Of course, there were days were I did things I enjoyed like blogging, vlogging, learning to sew, hang out etc. But for the most part I did a lot of  tasks under the mindset of “you’re just suppose to” rather than the “let’s get it!”mindset. So if you asked me what did I do in the last five ( or even ten) years of my life, today I’d say I existed. I met my requirement in every place but I was never really…Intentional. Because average was okay, I made the cut. But who’s really happy making the cut? I know I really wasn’t.

Now, here is where I can insert my sob story on how I grew up which is why I wasn’t intentional, but I won’t throw my valuable energy there, because I just don’t want to and it won’t benefit you or even myself.

One day, I got tired of doing the daily do’s and had to ask myself realistic questions because I was not happy being average. What do you want Rachel? Are you happy? Are you successful? How much do you care about your success? What do you even define as success?  I saw others succeed and wanted the same. Not their story exactly, but success in how it was properly defined for me. I began asking them questions, no matter how silly I felt, and answering my own questions for what they were.

Hearing the answers did hurt. But that “hurt” brought forth change. Some days better than others. But little by little, a new flower was sprouting! A happy intentional one.


In being intentional, I am able to understand what my goals are clearly and do things with meaning. For example, I no longer go to work because I have to (granted, I really do have to). But I make the most of work. If I am going to work, I am going to be the best at what I do. I want to be the best hugger/lover. I want to be the best sister, daughter, wife, friend, you NAME it.

And all of those best exist in outdoing myself. In outdoing myself, I have strategies on what I do to track my life and my success and slip ups (which will bring forth success). I longer want to be average. I have NO desire in doing so. I find joy in being intentional. Whatever I take part in, I put high expectation within myself to strive and do it with the greatest intent ever.

Are you striving? Are you happy with where you at? Don’t be average. Imagine how great you could be if only you did things with meaning?

Uses of Bentonite Clay

Some time ago, two sisters shared with me the amazing use of Bentonite Clay for the internal body. After hearing their testimony with bentonite clay I went ahead and ordered 5 lbs of sodium bentonite clay (here’s where I purchased it).  I would like to share what bentonite clay is, what is does and what it can be used for. Being a daughter of the King, I am big on using what He has made to heal, cleanse and bless us. Nature itself.

Bentonite Clay is used to pull heavy metals, toxins, pesticides, parasites etc. It plays as a “magnet” filtering through whatever it is placed on collecting all of the above stated. Bentonite clay can be used for the following:

  • Face Mask : pulling impurities from the face
  • Toothpaste: whitens teeth
  • Hair Mask: restores shine in hair
  • Bath: detox the body
  • Deodorant: pulls impurities from the armpit
  • Burns
  • Bug bites
  • Drink with water: detox internal organs

Drink clay? Ohh yeah! Drinking clay daily detoxes and cleanses the organs from their impurities. (Hint: don’t drink it for the taste, drink it for your health and cause you love you!) Drinking clay is also an awesome route to clearing the skin from scars and acne. While the organs are being cleansed and remember, our skin is our BIGGEST organ).

HOW I STORE MY CLAY

As mentioned earlier, bentonite clay plays as a magnet. Let me say this, it does not discrimminate and pulls at everything. So for example, if you take a spoon of bentonite clay with a metal spoon, it will pull from the metal and BOOM– just like that you’re clay can be contaminated and filled with metal. That is why I store my clay either in the bag it came in, or in the glass mason jar below with a paper towel as a lid. I also use a plastic/wood tablespoon .to measure how much I want to use. I am not educated in any other way you can store it, but if you do know of any other way, please feel free to teach me! I’d love to learn more.

Overall, I think everyone should have at least a bottle of clay in their homes for any emergency uses. You just never know! Bentonite clay has and is helping my body out in so many ways. You just can’t go wrong with it.

Peace and blessings!

Healing

Shalom viewers. Tonight, I was posted up on my bed and I was moved to share the healing of Yahweh. I pray this blog post encourages at least one viewer to seek healing from Yahweh. I pray that you understand that you cannot shut your wounds without the help of the ultimate Healer. For many years, I believed that time healed. All you have to do is move on and you’ll get over it. But what the Father taught me is that only He can heal. What time does is sweep and hide the wounds deep in the inner bellies of our beings, but truly they are never gone. The cure to all hurts, diseases, pains, grief, bitterness, hatred and much more is healing from Yahweh alone.

What Christianity teaches is that once you ask for healing, you receive it. Boom! it’s yours. But in actuality, healing does not work that way. Yahweh is not a Elohim whom you go and rub on and ask for assistance, and then He just provides it. In order to receive healing, we must meet Yahweh’s condition.What are His conditions?

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health (healing) to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. (Proverbs 3:8-9)

To meet Yahweh’s condition we must fear Him and be obedient to His laws, statutes and judgments. We must rid ourself of sin  and turn to Yahweh.

I spent the first couple of months as a Hebrew Yisraelite, holding on to hurts, bitterness and unforgiveness towards others and myself.  I thought once I didn’t see the people who hurt me anymore, I was healed. Moving on… Good! Not the case. I ask Yah for forgiveness of being bitter and unforgiving but I truly didn’t forgive others even myself. I spent my life holding on to pain and “acting” like I was alright. But in reality I was building up strong walls around the hurt and not allowing Yahweh in. I proclaimed I loved Him, but how could I, with an unforgiving heart. I was not meeting His conditions.

It was not until I forgave myself (still in the process) that I realize, I need to forgive others and move on. Who am I to choose who to forgive when the Father freely forgive those who ask? I cast down that pride in the name of Jesus. But healing is not done in an instant. It truly is a daily process in letting the Father in, and trusting (knowing) He will do an excellent work in you. HalleluYah. I look forward to being completely healed so that I can share a concrete testimony as His witness.
