Traditions and Misconceptions

If you have been following me, you are aware that Jesus called me to serve with him as part of a spiritual team. FYI, he is eager to co-partner with anyone who says “Use me.” Jesus is now my Spiritual Mentor/Guide and I’m blessed to receive Divine messages that are meant for everyone in order to help us all with our daily lives.


WELL-MEANING BUT incorrect teachings and traditions are difficult to overcome. After I started receiving Divine messages, I became confused and full of doubt because Jesus was taking me in completely different directions from what I had been taught as eternal truth. There is a lot of guilt attached to letting go of what we’ve been taught is God’s truth. I struggled with what to believe and not believe about what I had been taught growing up (not from my parents, but from church and society).

In a vision I received during a meditation:

Jesus and I merged as one, soaring high above the world and into the darkness of space. We swooped lower, flying over the night-blanketed ocean toward lights glowing on the distant shoreline. As we approached, we entered an ancient village, like in the Middle East in biblical times, with wheat-colored stucco buildings lined along narrow, dusty streets and people dressed in long robes and head coverings.

A white light spread out from the God within me casting a shimmering luminosity on the buildings and people.

Suddenly I was on the ground and bound in brown leather tethers. I couldn’t move! I couldn’t breathe! No matter how hard I struggled the leather held me imprisoned within the claustrophobic bindings. Panicked I mentally cried out for release.

As soon as I called out, Jesus lifted me and the tethers broke, freeing me. Breathing oxygen deep into my lungs, I spread my arms wide in joy, freedom and gratitude.

Jesus said:

“Like with the leather tethers, you are sometimes bound by old traditions and misconceptions that aren’t necessarily the truth. These man-defined restrictions hamper you from knowing the truth, even burdening you with guilt for questioning, binding you to false teachings.

“When you trust in your Creator, the Source shines the radiant, glowing light of truth within you, guiding you to what is real, liberating you from spiritually-impeding beliefs.

“By recognizing the truth, you are loosed from the misconceptions holding you in bondage and preventing your spiritual growth. You are freed to experience a truth that might be different from what you’ve been taught by well-meaning others who have done their best to explain the unexplainable.

“After those bonds of misconception are broken, you can truly grow and experience the fullness God intends for you.

“Open to new spiritual discoveries that allow you to expand into the boundless infinite that is not man-defined, but God-refined—freed from the impurities of false traditions and misconceptions.
