In previous times I was able to use my knowledge of NLP/Meditation/hypnosis to induce states of happiness, ecstasy and euphoria.
For example I used to go swimming and afterwards would feel a rush of endorphins. When I triggered this endorphin rush mentally I had an experience of
endorphin rush that was instantaneous and ten times as strong as a normal natural endorphin high.
I then linked this endorphin rush to working out at the gym. From then on I would do weights but never get sore muscles no matter how hard I pushed
myself. In Neurolinguisic Programming they call this anchoring.
I could bike all the way to the gym get on the treadmill and control my heartbeat to where the "fit test" would say "Heart beat to low". The
heartbeat monitor would shut of below 70 beats per second and I was able to go below that even after intensive exercise.
I couldn't possibly go into all the confusion and the consequences of my dabbling with these methods but suffice to say, they returned void.
Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it
shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
I came to realise that mans emotions and states of mind are incredibly easy to manipulate, to the extent where even ecstatic feeling can be
nonetheless completely meaningless.
Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Researching Charles Manson, David Koresh and many cults I realised that cult leaders can easily induce a state of awe, reverence, oneness in their
followers but this had nothing to do with Godliness. For example Mormonism’s "burning in the bosom" experience.
2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Recently I have realised that those feelings sent from God cannot be appreciated, manipulated or distorted by the flesh. Since they are of spirit, and
not of flesh, they cannot be anchored to the flesh, or objects.
Moses' name for example comes from the Hebrew mâshâh which means "to pull" and relates to God pulling you in. This is a feeling I have felt
before but I cannot induce the feeling mentally, I do not have a body memory of mâshâh, because mâshâh does not originate in the body.
Fear and trembling is another "feeling" I have experienced but this also is something that cannot be induced using self hypnosis. I cannot control
the experience of "fear and trembling" because it does not originate in my flesh.
I do not know how much sense this will make to anyone else reading, but it is incredibly important to me. Without this revelation I would not be able
to know for sure the authenticity of any of my feelings.
Now I know that I am not anchored to the void ever changing delusional whims of my mind and body, but rather I am anchored to The Rock of Jesus
