Spirit travel 500 miles to pray for my buddy Paul

Stories to Inspire

Jesus said there was an easy way to access the Heavenlies… through Him!   He said. “Use Me, the Door, to access Heaven.” 

“I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” – Jn 10:9

I know, we normally use this verse as a ‘salvation verse’ – “In order to get saved you have to come through Jesus.”  But, if salvation is the only application for this verse, what do we do with the last phrase – “and will go in and out and find pasture?”  Surely we’re not implying getting saved, unsaved and resaved, are we?  Rather, I believe Jesus just gave us a blueprint verse for how to live ‘above the line in the Heavenlies.

You see, we have great theology about the Heavenlies… but we have very little personal experience in the Heavenlies.  We know these familiar verses by heart.

“and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…” – Eph 2:6

“Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God…” – Col 3:1-3

As we follow Jesus’ invitation to use Him as the Door, the frontiers of our rich inheritance exponentially get opened up to us.  Yay, we can experience more than a mere earthling experience!  We are citizens of Heaven and the larger part of our being, is already CURRENTLY there.  Jesus invites us to access the Heavenlies, explore it, become familiar with it and begin to possess our inheritance.  So, for almost two years I’ve been facilitating hundreds of people ‘into Jesus’… and thus into the Heavenlies.  And the very personal and powerful heart encounter stories melt my heart nearly every time. 

This pic says it perfectly!!!!

Traveling in the Spirit is just one of the many frontiers available to us after we access the Heavens.  And it’s a fun one.  We’re not talking about some kind of astral projection or anything new age.  We’re talking about the Biblical kind… the kind that Paul, Philip, Jesus, Elijah, John, etc, experienced.  Obviously, we require ourselves to only follow Holy Spirit’s lead in these matters.

Jesus cautioned us:

“No one comes to the Father but by Me.” – Jn 14:6

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.” – Jn 10:1

With that securely etched in our minds and hearts, let’s full of faith, enter another part of our ‘Promised Land’.  Got it!  Now, the following is one of my personal experiences.

Spirit travel 500 miles to pray for my buddy Paul

Setup: I had been reading about, praying into and exercising in traveling in the Spirit for some time.  Obviously, it’s in the Bible.  And I’d already had several experiences.

Prompted, I emailed my friends Paul & Donna, in WI to see how they were doing.  She text back apprising me of Paul’s health.  What I didn’t know was that his infected replacement heart valve had caused severe sepsis in his body.  He’d been on 4 strong antibiotics, lost 50 pounds and been under quarantined medical care for 6 weeks.  She finished by saying, “Thank you for praying. Paul is quite discouraged today. Maybe you can go visit him in room 51.”

I thought, “Hmmm, she probably thinks that I’m in WI.”  So I said, “I wish I could.  I’m in Kansas City.  Please give him my love and care!!!”  She replied, “Haha I meant in the Spirit 😊.”  Finding it hard to believe that I didn’t ‘pick up’ on this, I responded, “I should have caught that!!!!  Sorry, I will do that right now!!!”  My sense was that this was Holy Spirit’s way of prompting me to activate into my new frontier.

I immediately went up to my bedroom, stilled my mind, activated my golden (Holy Spirit inspired) imagination and ‘took off’.  Within seconds I ‘flew’ 500 miles to WI, came down to the medical facility, in the front door, down the hallway, into Rm 51, placed my hand over Paul’s heart and made a few declarations over him.  All of that came from my own initiation and activation of my mind into a position that I felt Holy Spirit had prompted me to do.

But I did not initiate what happened next!  A bright white Light flooded Paul’s room.  It was the very white ‘solid’ Light… so ‘thick’ you couldn’t see through it.  It would be like standing immersed in a large vat of white milk.  Goosebumps ran down my arm, literally.  But then I wondered what I supposed to do with the light.  But before I could even fully think that question, I knew what to do… I was supposed to take all the Light and impart it into his body through my arm and hand.  But before I could even think that thought in my mind, it happened!  And then I felt another wave of goosebumps down my arm.

Surprised, I said to myself, “Wow, I think something just happened!”  (O man of faith that I am 😊)  So I made a few more declarations over Paul and ‘backed out’ of the experience.  I then text Donna and told her that I had visited and prayed for Paul.

A couple days later I text Donna to ask about Paul.  She replied, “After you prayed for him he had a breakthrough and decided to take one day at a time and not worry about the future.  He has been doing much better emotionally since then.  Thank you.”

A couple weeks later Paul was back home.  I texted and asked if he’d like to talk on the phone… and soon he was telling me his story.  I asked him if I could tell him my side of the story.  And so I told him what I’ve just told you.

He was slow to respond and said, “That really touches my heart.  The hardest part wasn’t even the physical ordeal, it was that from the time that I was under medical care, I couldn’t hear the voice of God.  And you know how much I love to hear His voice… and that I even teach about how to hear His voice.  But Donna said you called… and the next day I began to hear again.  I’m home now, off all meds and gaining my strength back.”

About a month later, I called Paul again.  He was still gaining his strength back and steadily getting better.  And as you might imagine, our conversations are getting more Heavenly each time we connect.

Thank our wonderful God for miracles of several different kinds.


A clean sweep and all Heaven breaks loose!

The Spirit realm is big!  And Holy Spirit is even bigger.  And He’s a great leader: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth” (Jn 16:13).  This makes for exhilarating vistas expanding out in all directions. 

Who knew that our effectiveness wasn’t limited to just our earthly physicality?  Our belief system used to limit our effectiveness to only what we could do while in our physical body.  But what happens when we get liberated from the confines of this body into the expansiveness of Holy Spirit’s realms!?  What happens when we are untethered from the natural laws of physics and find ourselves able to travel and function with Holy Spirit wherever He goes?  I tell you what happens!  Christian life just takes a quantum leap into “life and life more abundantly”!  Thank you Jesus, for that quote!

Brian Nickens found himself in a Holy Spirit assignment, partnering with an angel to set the stage for a God-encounter for his whole group.  So cool!  More, Lord!


A clean sweep and all Heaven breaks loose

“On a Monday night I was lying in bed reading a book by Praying Medic entitled, ‘Traveling in the Spirit Made Simple’.  I fell asleep but really ‘fell’ into the Spirit realm.  I found myself in the upper room of the church where I was going to teach a bible class the very next evening.”

“I was aware that there was a dark cloud or haze in the room.  An angel in the corner instructed me to remove the haze.  We were both hovering above the floor.  The angel further instructed me to use hand motions to ‘sweep’ the haze (which was fear, doubt and shame, etc) into the center of the room.  The haze responded to my ‘sweeping’ motions and collected in the middle of the room in the form of a ball.”

“The angel then instructed me to remove the ball of haze from the room.  It was now like a balloon floating about 3 feet off the ground.  As the angel ‘stood’ behind me, I pushed the ball out into the hall, down the stairwell and passed the security.  As I opened the front door and pushed it out the entrance of the church building, it got sucked out into the atmosphere.  The angel then said to go back to the upper room and release joy, peace, love, and the power of God in the room.  So back in the room, I began joyfully spinning and releasing just as I was instructed.”

“When the encounter ended I found myself back in my bedroom covered in sweat.”

“The next night when a first-time visitor from Jamaica walked into the bible study… she raised her fist in the air, shouted “Glory! The Presence of God is in the room!”  As more people arrived, they seemed to automatically get ushered into an unusual encounter with God.  For the next 30-40 minutes, people were overcome with the power of God and were beside themselves with various manifestations.  This lasted about 40 minutes.  Word got out around the building that “God was in the room” and other people in the building, including security, came to join in the experience.”

“When the unusual encounter finally subsided, I recounted to those in the room what had happened with me the night before.  With Holy Spirit’s leadership and an angel’s assistance, I had cleaned the room, and released the powerful Presence of God to usher us all into a Heavenly experience that we’ll not easily forget.” – BN

I’m exploring Spirit travel and time travel… Think of it, in the Spirit realm there is no time or distance.   And in the Spirit realm is where we’re “seated”, “hidden” and “raised”, etc.  Covid would have no impact whatsoever if we were familiar with traversing in the Spirit realm.   So I’m looking for Holy Spirit-led ways to travel in the Spirit and engage with time travel.

Moving ahead in time

“I was out prayer walking early one recent Sun morn… ascending… and traveling.  I felt inspired to go ahead in time to my sister Leann & bro-in-law Carl’s Sunday church meeting later that morning at The Well of Nashville.  I stood in the middle of their congregation and spoke breakthrough, glory and fresh strength/energy. (Many of them had been a part of a large funeral in that building the day before.)  As I was doing that, the Greek word ‘energeo’ came to mind… means “to put forth power”.  As I was declaring energeo over them, I looked down and less a 12″ away from my feet there was a 5-HOUR ENERGY drink bottle.  Bingo!  Confirmation!!!  Fun!!!”

“I text them what I experienced.” – MLH

Leann replied later…
“When we met together later that morn we shared your word in the service.  No, we didn’t see you, but I spoke to you and we all welcomed you to our gathering with laughter and excitement. 😊  Awesome morning !!! Thanks for the ‘visit’ and the releasing of Father’s heart for us!”

Jerry texted later:
“I was watching at the beginning of the meeting and there was a glory cloud on the place.  That first song, the new one Leann has just written wrecked me!  I could hardly see the road.”

Josh emailed this story and exclaimed afterward, “It’s a whole new world.”  I think we all concur!

It’s a whole new world!

“Thursday morning (around 8:00 am) I was at my home in Joplin, alone in the Glory.  As I entered into His Light, I opened my eyes and was amazed that my entire living room was flooded with light!  It was coming from my body!  I was shining with a bright, white light.

Suddenly, my thoughts went to a friend of mine who had been rushed to Kansas City for emergency surgery.  I began to expand my spirit, and found myself standing beside her bed – (I was here… then I was there).  My body was glowing and translucent – the hospital room was flooded with light.  I thrust both my hands into her stomach, and she began to glow.  I prayed in the Spirit and sang over her.  Everything happened very quickly… and then I was suddenly aware of my physical body, sitting on the couch in my living room.”

“That afternoon, I called her – the phone rang several times, and she finally picked up.  She was in extreme pain and was weeping.  She said her stomach had swelled twice its normal size and she couldn’t go to the bathroom.  I began to speak Truth and healing to her.  I commanded her body to function.  Immediately, the presence of God was very intense.  Her voice became calm.  She said she was watching the swelling go down right in front of her eyes, and was a little embarrassed to admit she had to hurry to the bathroom.” 

“Then she told me about an encounter she had around 8:00 am that morning.  She said her room became very bright with light and “Heaven entered her room”… the same time I had visited her earlier in the day.  I also found out her husband (who had left her several months ago) was there with her.  I prayed over both of them and then said goodbye.  They returned to Joplin together on Sunday.  She has completely recovered!  I am now seeing their marriage being restored!  Thank You, Jesus!!!!!!” – JC

With the Kingdom Age decisively sweeping over us, it’s time we begin to identify our new spiritual frontiers and nurture new spiritual giftings which will be necessary in order to fulfill a new commission.   Ascended Life Community (ALC) is actively engaged in growing into our new M.O.

Pat makes himself available to God and is immediately transported to a friend who needs his encouragement.

Holy Spirit Air travel

“Early one morning, I asked the Lord what He wanted to do today… where would He like to take me?  Instantly I found myself in another state flying through a city that I used to live in, years ago.  It was like a fast motion video through the streets.  I came to a stop in front of a friend’s house.  I was taken in at ground level, up the stairs, down the hall, and into his living room.  My friend was sitting in his easy chair, but it seemed like he was very discouraged or depressed.  So I prayed for him ‘there’.” 

“After praying, I was instantly back in my chair in my home. A few minutes later, I called my friend. (I had no natural knowledge of any problems in his life.)  I asked him how he was doing?  He said, “It’s so good that you called.  I’ve been very discouraged.  A few days ago, I got fired from the job that I’ve had for 20 years.”  I told him of my ‘travel in the Spirit’ experience a few minutes before and told him what I had sensed and what I had prayed over him.  He was blessed!” – PB
