Healing from PMDD
A Debilitating Issue
A young lady in her thirties was diagnosed with PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) which often plagued her with depression, irritability, anxiety, dizziness, brain fog, fatigue, to name but a few. In recent years, these symptoms became increasingly worse, despite taking medications, attending a support group, and adhering to an exercise regime to keep fit and healthy.
After seeing her friend healed from Vertigo (see Go Vertigo), she came to me for help. I had never come across PMDD before, so I had no clue on how to deal with it - but the Lord Jesus knew, which was all that mattered since He would be the healer. He had caused our paths to cross, so it was just a matter of letting the Lord reveal what needed to be done to help her.
Destroyed by a Lack of Knowledge
As our session started, it became evident that in the plight to find solutions to her PMDD issue, the young lady had a keen interest in several alternative healing therapies.
She had taken up Colour Therapy to help lift her moods. She had practiced meditation, along with its mantras to soothe away any anxiety, irritability, and depression. She had also been fascinated by the chakras located along the spine, of which there are seven (see diagram). She had pinned up a poster of these chakras, and studied them to understand the spiritual energy that flowed through her body. She would often burn sage oil incense to get rid of so called “bad energy”. In 2012, however, she decided to stop these practices.
No sooner did she stop these practises than she received two books as a gift – the first on Yoga, and the second on Pilates. Having heard that Yoga may be spiritually unsafe, she disposed of the Yoga book, and instead used the latter book to take up Pilates. Her primary reason for the exercise was to keep fit, but also to keep in shape and look good. This, in turn, led her to adorning herself with multiple studs and (ear)rings, defacing her body with many piercings.
As I sat there listening, the Lord showed me the demonic roots of these New Age practices. The young lady was oblivious to the dangers that they had led her to, both spiritually and physically. Indeed, she was being destroyed by a lack of knowledge. And unfortunately, so are many others in the world today, who do such things.
Hard Truth Revealed
It was time to tell the young lady of some shocking truths that may be hard to hear, but which were crucial for her if she was to have any chance of healing at all.
Yoga and Chakras
The first truth to reveal was that although she never once practiced Yoga and only read about the chakras, the chakras are the basis on which Yoga operates. Yoga originated from ancient India with the aim to still and to control (yoke) the mind – that is, yoking the mind to Hindu gods, of which there are millions. The mantras that she had done, in and of themselves, would have certainly gone a long way to yoking her mind to some Hindu gods. But further to this, Yoga poses are postures of worship to the Hindu gods, disguised as stretching exercises. Among them are animal poses, such as the dog, cat, monkey, cobra, to name but a few. What is most alarming yet is that Yoga invites a “serpent spirit” called “Kundalini”, which coils three and a half times around the spine, and lies dormant at the base of it.
When Yoga is practised, the Kundalini spirit is awakened and travels up the spine, opening each chakra along the way. Each chakra has both a physical and spiritual influence on various parts of the body, and often when the third-eye chakra is reached, the person may experience visions of blissfulness.
Many people who practice Yoga would claim that they experience peace, happiness, and well-being both physically and spiritually – but this is a deception of Satan.
The truth is that Kundalini is an evil spirit working for Satan, and equally demonic are the chakras, each housing an evil spirit to cause all kinds of imbalances to the body. So, what may seem to give health benefits in the beginning will in fact turn out to be destructive for the person’s body, soul and spirit in the long term. Over time, the Kundalini spirit and the seven chakra spirits would drive the person to mental health illness, not least chronic depression, fear, anxiety, panic attacks and such like, which can, in turn, lead to other sicknesses and diseases.
The second truth to reveal was that although Pilates seemed to be a safe exercise regime, it is somewhat linked to Yoga in the way it had been developed by its founder, Joseph Pilates. Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia on how Pilates evolved:
"Pilates studied Yoga and the movements of animals and trained his fellow inmates in fitness and exercises. He later said that the intuitive movements of cats, in particular, inspired many aspects of his fitness regime. It was there that he began refining and teaching his minimal-equipment system of mat exercises that later became "Contrology"."
Comparison with Yoga
Modern Yoga, like Pilates, is a mind-and-body discipline, though Yoga classes are more likely to address spiritual aspects explicitly. Some poses are similar in the two disciplines; for example, open leg balance closely resembles Navasana, boat pose; roll over is similar to Halasana, plough pose; and swan and push-up are essentially identical to Bhujangasana, cobra pose and Chaturanga Dandasana, low plank pose, respectively. Both disciplines develop strength, flexibility, and fitness. Pilates, however, emphasises core strength where Yoga emphasizes flexibility.
Therefore, although Pilates focuses more on core and muscle strength, it is unfortunately defiled by its Yoga elements. The similar poses that Pilates had adopted from Yoga would equally mean spiritual worship to Hindu gods. As such, it has become just as spiritually dangerous as Yoga. Any involvement in Pilates would give legal right to the Kundalini and the seven chakra spirits to enter the body of the person, just as much as if Yoga was practised.
The young lady practiced Pilates for a mere six months, and that entailed simply following instructions in the book, rather than attending professional classes. Yet, coupled with her temporary fascination of the chakras and practice of mantras, it was enough to open the door to the Kundalini and the seven chakra spirits, wherefore her journey to PMDD began.
Kundalini is an evil spirit that reckons herself as God the Creator. It is therefore no surprise that most people who harbour Kundalini and the chakra spirits in their bodies are vain and conceited; lovers of themselves and their image. Commonly, Kundalini vanity may express itself through a significant number of piercings in various places around the body; some may also come as tattoos; some may be in other forms. In addition to this, Kundalini could also create a habit of skin picking, known as Dermatillomania, thought to be a mental health issue of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).
The young lady had all these expressions of vanity, but due to her desperation to be healed from PMDD, she was willing to humble herself to do whatever it takes to be healed.
We began a work of cleansing by way repentance from sins – in this case, primarily against self and against the Lord. The young lady was quick to repent for all her involvement with Colour Therapy, meditations, chakras and Pilates – essentially, repenting for looking into darkness for healing instead of looking to the Lord Jesus.
She was also happy to repent of her piercings, which meant taking out all her earrings and other rings from her various piercings. However, she was reluctant to let the holes close up and to throw away the rings. These rings serve as strongholds for the Kundalini and chakra spirits.
After some introspection, she concluded that she still loved her piercings as a way to look appealing to people – vanity in its core. It was only when a revelation of Jesus Christ having been pierced on the cross (on His hands, feet, and side) for the sin of her piercings, that she was able to repent truly from her vanity. She was eventually able to disposed of all her rings, even pictures of herself in all her piercings.
There are other aspects of her life that she repented from that are out of the scope of this story. But they, too, were significant to her journey to healing.
Once all the strongholds and legal rights to the enemy had been destroyed by way of repentances, we proceeded to cast out the evil spirits that were in the young lady’s body. We started with some of the general occult spirits such as Witchcraft, Idolatry, Curses, Deception, etc., then went onto the chakra spirits.
It was not until we got to the third-eye chakra spirit that the idea of videoing the deliverance session came to mind. With full agreement of the young lady, we started to video the session – and to our surprise, the evil spirits were speaking to glorify Jesus!
In past deliverance sessions, we had often encounter evil spirits speaking in rants and raves, but only to oppose us and to delay their exits. It was only now that we heard them glorifying Jesus – so much so that we just had to share what they were saying below. Such words should give all of us confidence in Jesus Christ more than ever before, and should give us an insight into what happens in the spiritual realm which is just as real as the physical realm.
Words italicized in red are worth noting with extra attention.
No, no, no, stop it! Don't take me out – no, no, no!
No, no, I don't want to go, stop please, stop it. Go away, leave me alone. I don't want to go. I hate you. Don't do this. I am going anyway; you people leave me. Stop, stop, stop it - why do you do this? Go away - no, leave me alone! I don't want to go - stop it. I hate you! Stop it please - don't do this. I am going - you people leave me. I am going anyway.
Why should I leave? Stop it please, I don't want to go. Why do I have to leave? No, it's not true that she belongs to Jesus, she belongs to me. No, no, I don't believe you. I don't have a choice, do I? Why do you do this to me? I need to be here, stop it. Too much for me .. I cannot stay, can I? I can't stand it anymore. Why? I want to stay! Stop it please, stop talking, you are hurting me. Stop it, it's not worth it. I don't want to go. You are hurting my ears. You people leave me alone. I can't take it anymore. I don’t care. why are you making me go? I am gonna go anyway, I don't care about you. I don't need to stay here. I am going to go somewhere else <at which point we forbid the evil spirit to go somewhere else, but to go to the pit>. Stop it, let me stay here if I can’t go anywhere else. I am too tired to fight you, she doesn’t deserve to be saved. I can't take anymore, please stop talking. I am not going to anyone else. Stop it, leave me… oh forget it! I can’t cope anymore, I am going. You are relentless. It's not fair. I need to be in a body. It’s too much work. I can’t fight people like you. You are too much for me. I can’t take it anymore.
No, stop it! No, I don’t care, I am not going. You don’t understand I can’t stand your voices; you are making me ill. Stop it! Why are you trying to save her? What about me? I want to stay. No, no, you are hurting my head. No, I don't want to go. Stop it, I have to go, don't I? I don’t want to go from her. Let me stay in her. Why? It's not fair, I need to stay. I've been here. I need to stay in my own home. Stop it. Her head is my head, I don’t want to hear it. I can’t fight you. You’re hurting me. She’s not worth staying in anyway. I can just go, I’ve had enough. I’ve seen you do this to all the others. I don’t want you to hurt my head anymore. I give up, I am going to leave. I am going, but I don’t want to go. You don’t understand how I feel. Why is this happening to me? I’ve seen you do this to the others, but not me, I need to stay. I need to stay in this body. I can’t fight you. I know the Holy Spirit is stronger than me. Jesus is stronger. I have to give up because I can’t fight you. He’s too strong. I know that He is Almighty, I know that already. Don’t patronise me, woman! Oh, shut up and leave me alone. I want to stay in her body. OK forget it, I can’t fight you. I am not coming back to her body. I know you’re trying to save her. She doesn't deserve to be saved. I know I am not going to be able to come back. You don’t understand. I’ve been in her body for so long. I have to go, I am not going to win, I know Jesus is stronger than me, I know this already. I am going just give me the time to go. You’re hurting me. I am going. This is for your God. Are you sure He is the living God? You win, you win. I know I lost. You hurt me. I’m going, I am leaving, I’m not coming back. I know I am not going to be able to come back. I’ve lost this time. I’ve lost, Jesus is just too strong. I have been controlling her for so long. I don’t want to let go. Where will I go? <When told to go to the pit, it says "I don't want to go back there!"> OK, I am going!
Fear / Fear of Death
My eyes are burning, who are you anyway? Of course, I am afraid of Jesus, but that has nothing to do with it. I am special. I have been here for many decades. Just because you know Jesus doesn't mean you can do this. She deserves to fear. You are too much, where will I go? She deserves for me to be here. I can't fight you. Without Jesus you can't win by yourselves, coward! Why don’t you have compassion on me? I am part of her for so long.
I want to have control of her mind. Why do you do this? I want to stay. Why are you doing this for Jesus? Stop talking. It’s too much, I have to go. I've had so much fun in here. Let me oppress her. Stop talking about Jesus, I hate the name Jesus. Maybe she deserves to be depressed, have you ever considered that? Shut up, I am going.
You are terrible, why do you worship Jesus, He’s too powerful for me. Why do you do this in His name? It's not fair. I like to oppress her. I like to make her feel sad. Stop pointing your finger. Don't say Jesus as well, I don’t like hearing His name. Trying to do the same things as you did before. Can't you just leave me. I want to be left alone. Why Jesus? <we read scriptures at it>. You are hurting me, stop saying Jesus. Stop it, why you know the scriptures so well? Stop reading that. Stop talking about Jesus. I am going.
I don't want to fight you. Why are you doing this? Darkness is better. She doesn't know light is better. I want her in darkness. <as we read the scriptures ,it said, “It hurts, stop! It hurts me!”>. I have to come out. Darkness will be here. I don’t have the energy to fight you. It's too much - she will be light, but for how long? Stop trying to save her, let me be dark inside of her. It hurts my head. I'm going, stop talking - all you do is talk...!
Death & Suicide
I am tired of all of this. Let me stay. I can find someone else. I want people to be suicidal. I want people to kill themselves. Stop it! Satan wins. Stop talking about your Jesus. I won’t go like the others. I want to kill people and I am not going. You are hurting me, tormenting me. You are tormenting me, both of you - stop it! You are nothing but your scriptures. <the spirit tried to knock the Bible off the table and to snatch my paper of scriptures that I had in my hand>. I am not strong enough to fight you. Stop talking and I will go. Scriptures burn my eyes. I don't like listening to them, I like listening to death. I don’t like listening to those stupid words.
You think you see me? You're smart, how did you know? You're not going to get me out! <the spirit tries to make jokes to threaten us that we'd go to the fiery lake of burning sulphur with it. But we refuted that as nonsense>. You're killing me. How did you find me? Because I was laughing afterwards? You're too smart. I hate people like you - everybody I go to try to get me out. Leave me alone. Everywhere I go, you Christians try to get me out of the body. I don't like people like you. I mocked Jesus till the day He died. She likes to laugh and mocking your Jesus, she doesn't even know it. Your voices hurt me. I am dying here. you are killing me and making jokes. Not working, not going <the spirit then left>.
There is no reason to leave, I like it here. You make the others leave. No point fighting you.
Many evil spirits were cast out that day. The young lady’s countenance changed – she looked so much brighter, her should felt lighter; and for the first time in a long time, she felt clear in her head. Healing was taking place. Hallelujah! Praise be to God!
In subsequent weeks, as her next cycle emerged, I asked how her PMDD was, and this was her answer:
Hey Elma, the difference in my health is like night and day - the light of Jesus is amazing! I'd say PMDD has tried to come back a few times, but I've commanded it to leave and I notice regular prayer out loud, reading the scriptures out loud, and the hymns out loud - work.
The Holy spirit is amazing, reminding of loads of things to repent of in the past, and also I've been cleaning out stuff since my deliverance. I had so much paperwork to do with health, stuff I'd researched, and also pics on USBs. It's taken a while. I had three bin bags and I'm almost done. I know though it will be continuous as I learn more.
Also, you wouldn't believe I found teas and food to throw ‘cos the packaging had Yoga stuff and some spices as well. I've also cut out certain things in my diet and have noticed the improvement.
I'm going back on my exercise now also, spiritually safe, just walking - and running eventually. I'm praying protection prayers daily and find myself most close to God in prayer - as I normally cry in respect and admiration for what Jesus has done.
Right now, I'm focusing on deepening my roots with Jesus in terms of relationship. I feel so different it's just so overwhelming in a positive way, I'm so grateful. I'm actually crying as I'm writing this. I'm just focusing on the space I have, and reserve it for Jesus.
It's a massive change it really is, in every aspect it's challenging, but it’s a good one - but everything is just different. I know it will be even more when I get baptised.
Her PMDD has now turned into PMDD-DD (PMDD-Demons Defeated)! Praise be to the Lord for healing her, as only He can! Most importantly though she now has a relationship with the living God – Jesus Christ – which will lead her to eternal life.
Since deliverance, the young lady had been sharing her testimony with her friends, and soon she will also share it with her family. In her generosity, she also allowed me to share with others that I was ministering to.
One lady who was skeptical about evil spirits (whether or not they are real) and also whether fighting them in the Name of Jesus really works. She watched one of the videos and was amazed - went away changed, and now believes in the spiritual realm, and the power of Jesus and His Name.
A man who was watching one of the videos started to feel uncomfortable and did not want to see anymore of it. When I told him it was because there was an evil spirit inside him that didn't like the video, he prayed to the Lord Jesus to set him free. Moments after that prayer, he felt different and was perfectly fine to continue watching the video. The evil spirit must have left him.
Another man who was plagued with fear and anxiety read the excerpts of what the evil spirits were saying (above) and the evil spirits in him started to manifest in fear of what he was reading. He was then able to cast the evil spirits out himself (self-deliverance) and was set free.
Hallelujah! Praise be to God for His wonderful works and His faithfulness in working even through the ripples.
Praise be to the Lord Jesus for the power of His Name, and the authority He has given us to overcome all powers of the enemy.
Praise be to the Holy Spirit who works tirelessly alongside us in His mighty power to accomplish all the work there is to do in the harvest field.
Thank you Lord!
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Luke 4: 33-37
33 In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, 34 “Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
35 “Be quiet!” Jesus said sternly. “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.
36 All the people were amazed and said to each other, “What words these are! With authority and power he gives orders to impure spirits and they come out!” 37 And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding area.
15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
