Surgery and Your Spirit

Two dear friends of mine recently underwent surgery: one had a knee replaced and the other a shoulder. Before their procedures, I called them, and by phone, engaged with their human spirits for the purpose of securing the best possible outcome for their surgeries. I am happy to report that from pre-op to post-op and through recovery everything has gone splendidly, so much so that the shoulder replacement doc cried when my friend reported on how well she was doing. (Which is kinda weird, but I guess he doesn’t get much positive feedback at that point in the recovery process).

Last night another friend asked me to give this information to you because she has also used it with good results. So here it goes. I learned this powerful strategy for improving surgical outcomes from Arthur Burk. I have modified what he teaches to suit my style. You can find his teaching at https://theslg.com/content/your-spirit-surgery-video.

Instructions taken from Arthur Burk and modified by me. 
If you are the one facing surgery have someone else instruct your spirit for you. If that is not an option, do it yourself. Don’t let any perceived shortfalls hold you back from moving into your dominion and authority as a child of God. Ideally, start instructing the spirit three days before the surgery. I wasn’t able to do that for my friend whose knee was replaced, so I combined step one and two.He did fine anyway. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Here we go =)

Day 1: Secure a Clean, Safe Place. 
(Name of person), I call your spirit forward to engage with me. Spirit, I bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are wonderfully and fearfully made in the image of the one true God. He has packed you full of everything you need for life and godliness. The Lord knew before you were placed in the womb that you would face the challenge of this surgery, and He put within you everything you need to bring about His will and His healing in this situation. So, I release you to do just that. (Psalm 139:13; Genesis 1:26-27; Zechariah 12:1; 2 Peter 1:3; Jeremiah 1:5).

Spirit, you are a joint-heir with Christ. This means that you have authority in every area of the hospital that you go. I want you to command any evil spirits and any other hostile or interfering spirits to wait outside of the hospital. Tell them that they are not allowed to be in any place you occupy during pre-op, surgery and post-op. Command them to do no harm while they wait. Only humans and those the Lord has appointed to help you are allowed to function. As a joint-heir with Christ, you also have authority over the angels. So, command them to actively guard you. (Romans 8:17; Hebrews 1:13-14; Luke 9:1; Mark 16:17-18).

Day 2: The Spirit Has Oversight. 
(Name of person), I call your spirit forward to engage with me. Spirit, you are not subject to anesthesia. The soul and the body will go offline, because the soul is dependent upon the body to function, but the spirit exists with or without the body and will remain online. You have dominion and authority and the ability to monitor everything. You will do so, and you will intervene in the event there are any issues with the procedure, the surgeons and any caregivers. You will direct things so that your person receives the best of care. You will not settle for anything less. 

If you have to, you will shout at the caregivers until they hear and heed you. (Proverbs 20:27).

Day 3: The Spirit Can Direct Recovery. 
(Name of person), I call your spirit forward to engage with me. The body is naturally traumatized during the surgical procedure. It will want to recoil from the surgery site. You will not allow this. You will command your body to vigorously accelerate repair of all blood vessels at the surgery site, especially the capillaries. This is so that all waste products may be quickly removed.

Spirit, command your body to rapidly repair the nerves so that there is a minimum of pain. Command all involved tissue to be restored. And cleanse the body of all anesthesia as soon as is safe.

Psalm 139:16 states that every day is ordained by God. So, he knew that this day would come and has packed into you—spirit—everything you need to walk joyously and successfully though this challenge.

Now go ask Holy Spirit to unpack all the information and skills you need to accomplish what I have charged you to accomplish. In the name of our healing Lord Jesus, I bless you and release you into your dominion and authority.

Have fun! And please let me know how things turn out for you after applying this spiritual pre-op approach to surgery.

Colonoscopy and the Fear that Everyone Wants to Hurt Me

So, I have avoided submitting to the dreaded colonoscopy well beyond the recommended age that the screening is supposed to take place. For my international readers, all Americans are encouraged to be screened for colon cancer when they are 50. My husband went under the gun; I mean invited this home invasion; I mean was screened against his will and at the insistence of his doctor some years back. I am happy to report that he survived the procedure and entertained his caregivers with an overflow of hilariously unrestrained friendliness while recovering from the anesthesia.

On the other hand, I have strenuously resisted all attempts to convince me that such a screen was in my best interest. Have you noticed that telling God no is a surefire way to activate his “Oh yes you will?” Back in the day—waaay back, I am happy to report—I told God that I would never quit smoking pot; that he was wasting his time even going there.

Pot smoking was the first of my heathen bad habits to go away. It went so far away that even the thought of being in the same room with pot gives me the willies. Email me if you want the details.

Yes! God can change a mind. After telling the Lord “no thank you” to a colonoscopy; that I would take my chances with colon cancer, every single commercial on TV was about screening for colon cancer. Every Single One. Friends began sharing colon cancer stories. Colon cancer stories popped up on my FB news feed. One friend, whose mother had just been diagnosed via a colonoscopy, asked why on earth was I not getting a screening? To which I had to respond that I was scared out of my wits! I asked for prayer.

Here is what the Lord showed me. My heart believed beyond a doubt that Everyone Wants to Hurt Me. Are you aware that your heart is designed to believe absolutely without question? Once your heart settles into a belief, it is there for good unless some intervention takes place.

Blessed be the name of our God, I know how to intervene. I broke all vows to Never Forget that Everyone Wants to Hurt Me. I sent all attached evil spirits to the feet of Jesus to be judged there. And I firmly instructed my heart to stop believing what it believed. Instead, I directed it to believe this: All bad things happen because of the fall, not because everyone wants to hurt me. I then directed my heart to believe that No One Wants to Hurt Me (realizing the devil does but so what to him). A few days later, I made a doctor’s appointment and will be scheduling my lovely home invasion screen soon.

I feel no fear AT ALL.

I don’t think all of us have my heart belief, but I think many of us do. So, let’s pray together and break it.

-In Jesus’ name, I break the inner vow I took to Never Forget that Everyone Wants to Hurt Me. I break the assignments of any evil spirit attached to that vow. I send all evil spirits to the feet of Jesus to be judged.

-Heart, from now on you will stop believing that everyone wants to hurt me. Instead you will root and ground me in the grace and love of God.

-Lord, God, please heal all the hurts that have resulted because I believed in my heart that everyone wants to hurt me. Amen.

The above prayer may surface some hurts that need addressing in the presence of the Lord. I pray for you that you will be saturated in his love as you work through painful heart beliefs.

… it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace … Hebrews 13:9

I may—or may not—report on how the colonoscopy goes 🙂

Hugs and blessings, 
Susan
