VISION:  I saw the man I have seen many times but never remember His face close up (Holy Spirit) and Daddy on their hands and knees on my kitchen floor working on many pieces of something along the baseboard.  It was not very light in there and I saw they were precisely moving pieces around and into place.  I came in and saw what they were doing and turned on the light on the kitchen stove for them.  Then I saw the man take what looked like a tennis ball racket (which was the final result of what was laying on the floor) and move it back and forth in a fluid movement with his hand and wrist.  The racket was made of many thin circular pieces of veneer, they were fluidly interlocking and moved back and forth together making different patterns depending upon which way the racket was held.  It reminded me of a finger print the way the patterns and swirls appeared.




  • Details on the floor = floor plan

  • Turning on the light = shedding light on the plan

  • Moving pieces around into place = precise and deliberate decisions

  • Tennis Racket = debate, boomerang, bouncing ideas back and forth but not truly giving or receiving or connecting in a meaningful way.

  • Circles and patterns = we have preset patterns that take place in our minds and souls when we come across certain painful issues in our lives.  These are like rings in a tree.  I once wrote that soul giants are like the rings in trees and when we get in close proximity to a knot, the circles and patterns adjust around it and affect the rings.  When someone gets close to a soul giant or wound, things become bumped out of place and perverted as to our ways of thinking and responses to circumstances or things people say.

  • This reminds me of the definition of insanity:  doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. 



I feel the above rhema is the Lord's response to the below article on the research about forgetting what we were going to do when we walk into another room.  People sometimes forget things when they walk into a new door, but they bring back the memory when they walk back to the other room. 


As Wayne told me about this article yesterday and I received the revelation of another application about walking through doors from our past.  Sometimes when we walk through an old door, all the old behaviors and patterns come alive once again and we get locked into a certain way of responding to old pain.  Many people have this association during holidays when they connect with their relatives from childhood. 


This is also true when we suffer points of trauma anytime during our life and when we move out of that time in our life we seemingly have adjusted - but when walking back into that place once again, we do not feel adjusted at all.  I mentioned this to Wayne and he said that the way they help people get over old traumas is to put simulations of the same events (like computer simulations of war for veterans) and they see and experience the events of war only this time in a safe environment and they eventually associate the old trigger points with a new a safe place.


This holiday season, if you are "triggered" to old (bad) places when you walk through a door your past, consider making attempts to reconsider the following ideas:


1.  Re-evaluate how you and others have grown and/or changed since the days when you were first faced the traumas. 


2.  Learn to be thankful in all things through Christ Jesus for this is the will of God for you.  Decide what to be thankful for. 


3.  Make efforts to discover how God turned those traumas into good because He loved you.  Observe the good changes that have taken place in your life because you overcame the traumas.


4.  See how you may be facing the same old patterns as before, but now they are without the personal threat that you once experienced.


5.  Understand that the old door you entered is a place you are only visiting, you no longer live in that painful memory on a regular basis.


6.  You may not be able to change another person, but you have the opportunity to let go and forgive the past and forgive offenses.  When you forgive it will release you from anger, bitterness and fear.


7.  Instead of retreating to old patterns of fear, conquer them with God's love.  Ask for more of His love to cover the past and cover all the offenses. 


8.  Forgive and love yourself as God loves you.  He doesnt view you as having failed, He views you as a child learning lessons where you eventually grown up and overcome.  Ask to be able see yourself as He sees you, so that you will be able to love others as you love yourself.


ARTICLE:  Walking through doorways causes forgetting, new research shows

Susan Guibert• Date: November 16, 2011


We’ve all experienced it: The frustration of entering a room and forgetting what we were going to do. Or get. Or find.


New research from University of Notre Dame Psychology Professor Gabriel Radvansky suggests that passing through doorways is the cause of these memory lapses.


“Entering or exiting through a doorway serves as an ‘event boundary’ in the mind, which separates episodes of activity and files them away,” Radvansky explains.


“Recalling the decision or activity that was made in a different room is difficult because it has been compartmentalized.”


The study was published recently in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology.


Conducting three experiments in both real and virtual environments, Radvansky’s subjects – all college students – performed memory tasks while crossing a room and while exiting a doorway.


In the first experiment, subjects used a virtual environment and moved from one room to another, selecting an object on a table and exchanging it for an object at a different table. They did the same thing while simply moving across a room but not crossing through a doorway.


Radvansky found that the subjects forgot more after walking through a doorway compared to moving the same distance across a room, suggesting that the doorway or “event boundary” impedes one’s ability to retrieve thoughts or decisions made in a different room.


The second experiment in a real-world setting required subjects to conceal in boxes the objects chosen from the table and move either across a room or travel the same distance and walk through a doorway. The results in the real-world environment replicated those in the virtual world: walking through a doorway diminished subjects’ memories.


The final experiment was designed to test whether doorways actually served as event boundaries or if one’s ability to remember is linked to the environment in which a decision – in this case, the selection of an object – was created. Previous research has shown that environmental factors affect memory and that information learned in one environment is retrieved better when the retrieval occurs in the same context. Subjects in this leg of the study passed through several doorways, leading back to the room in which they started. The results showed no improvements in memory, suggesting that the act of passing through a doorway serves as a way the mind files away memories.

PRAYER:  Lord we ask that this holiday season will be triumphant for us all through Christ Jesus.  We pray that You will give us a new and peaceful way of responding to old triggered patterns so that we will receive the inner healing that our souls crave.  We ask that You will give us a mirror to show our progress and help us align with Your purposes in our lives.  In all things we ask for more of Your love so that we may cover the failures of the past.  May all things work together for good because You love us and we love you. 


QUICKENED 11/19/11: the following QW came out this week.



Today I was thinking about returning to something in my past and asked the Lord about the wisdom of such a decision.

PIX: I saw a CD pop out and a sign that said DISK IS FULL.
