mind is a curious thing. The inner mind of all people is incredibly
powerful. A person is born and brought up with a set of cultural
standards that are imposed on him or her. These standards are
usually a little different from the previous generations and young
rebellion usually leads to learning. When a person cannot find a
place to fit within the world he or she has been given or if they
have suffered severe trauma such as a
particularly abusive experience,
then try to change themselves so they may feel safe or accepted.
When a person changes who they are to accommodate or deal with their
life, it leads to immediate danger.
Our subconscious minds are great protectors. We can
usually spot a phony person, miles away. So a person who is giving
up their personality for the sake dealing with past abuse or poor
self image, they will usually be spotted and avoided, so what
happens? The person starts to develop several different
personalities that will accommodate the many different environments
in their lives. All of these personalities they have developed are
designed for each relationship the individual has to encounter. For
example; One personality may be a bad dude, the next a musician, the
next a skilled craftsman, the next one a powerful manager, so on and
so forth... Can you imagine how much of a load that is on the brain?
Here is someone that has been forced into a position where he or she
has to be one, two, or even 15 different personalities/persons. ( By
the way this is called DID,
Disassociative Identity Disorder)
The brain is exercised to its' limits, this is providing the higher
IQ is present, this brain becomes super intelligent. In fact if a
person has the ability to develop that many personalities in one
life they have to be extremely intelligent to successfully pull it
The problem with all of this is that the person will
eventually burn out. His or her mind will become guilt ridden
leading them to the realization that they themselves have not
accomplished anything worthwhile with their life. Why? Because they
are two or as many as 15 or more, different personalities/people,
not the person that they truly are. They have disassociated. The
mind starts to segregate the different people from each other always
looking for the one they want to be. The inner mind cannot find that
original person (called the host person) so what does it do then?
It creates a fantasy world to hide in! All of this happens in the
inner mind and usually during the developmental years of
adolescence. These are the years that God intended for us to start
our world building! One of the most fragile times in our life! It
is Gods principle that we world build. It is His design that we
start in the early years of our lives. The problem with people like
I just described is that because they have disassociated and live in
a fantasy world, and due to the fact that the mind is going to
protect itself from destruction by disassociating, then the world
that the young person is building is usually not any of the phony
people's worlds but rather the fantasy world that they have used to
escape to. (Whew! You may have to read that again!) Now here is the
real danger. The world that we build for ourselves in our heart (sub
conscious mind) is the world we will live out when we reach our
maturity. We have no choice. It is God's principle for us. If we
mess it up, then one of several things can happen. We will have to
live as we have fantasized, or we will self destruct, or in some
rare instances God will wash the person clean. I want to caution
you, in that our God is a just God. He expects us to live with
accountability and most always we will pay the consequences for our
mistakes. After all who would not know that living in a fantasy
world is against nature? God designed the universe to be in harmony
with itself. Nature or the natural ways that God put in place are
the very things that we can use to determine if we are in harmony or
not. An example is the homosexual relationship. No one will ever
convince me that any man or woman that is involved in a homosexual
relationship can honestly tell me they are comfortable with the
naturalness of that relationship. Their inner minds know they are
out of harmony with creation. By the way, I want to make it clear
that although God hates all sin, He still loves the sinner. Friend,
He will never turn you away!
My question is this. Are you living in a world of fantasy?
Is it an escape for you? If so, you must ask God to help you get it
together and put the fantasies away.
Father says in his word that accepting Christ causes a renewing of
the mind. One of the spiritual gifts of all believers is that
renewing. In the case of the individual that has created his or her
world improperly or haphazardly there will eventually have to be a
deliberate renewing of the mind which only will be able to be
accomplished through prayer along with great faith. Many people,
especially men burnout sometime between 40 and 50 years of age. If
you or someone you know has experienced this burning out (otherwise
known as a mid life crisis), it is usually caused by a lack of
control in the thoughts of the mind during the course of life.
Controlling ones thoughts is the hardest obstacle to overcome for
those that have created themselves outside of the perimeter of Gods
design for that individual. Immediate response and repair is
required to pull it all back together and move forward. Controlling
the thoughts of the mind through dreams and visions is a Godly
approach to the very principles of creation and the one Creator. Now
is the time. If you don't control your thoughts, you
will experience what you
are building in your mind and you probably will find yourself in
later years, regretting and full of repent, but still paying the
consequences for your thoughts.
scriptures state that "your sins will follow you" One of those ways
of following is the accountability that a person must and will face
during the latter stages of their life. It is how people are created
in that we will face the secret world we create. The individual
sometimes has to be forced to face those consequences. If they are
not forced either from within or by an outside force they will most
definitely self- destruct in short time. In the book of Joel,
chapter 2 verse 28
"I will pour out
on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men
will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."
Think about that!
Young men will see visions! Old men then see and realize dreams!
This example of one of Gods principles at
work is written in the early scriptures.
Here is something to
one feels out of touch with themselves because they are facing self
made consequences it is hard for them to keep a hold on their
world. The person that is self made has no hope other then their
own inferior reliance. But the person that God created has hope in
the relationship they have with their creator, even when they at
times may feel out of touch.
I know this is a lot of information to digest so if you or
someone you know would like to talk to someone about living in a
fantasy world or
Disassociative Identity Disorder,
please feel free to contact me.
