It's Time to Wake UP to YOUR Anointing! ❤️ Lyrical Insight Through the Song "Grease" #Grease Pt 2
01:07:46
❤️ This is Part 2! I kept getting this concept and "message" everywhere I was turning! I was re-reading C.S. Lewis' book "Mere Christianity" and he spoke so clearly about our having an eternal purpose for being here on this earth. Most people are locked in to their temporary lives here and chasing after all that they think that they can get here, or all they can "be" in the world's eyes, but we are truly citizens of heaven! We have an eternal, anointed reason for being here. The word for anointed is "Christ" (in Greek, as in Jesus, the anointed one: Christ.) In Revelations 1:5-6 it says we are kings and priests, a royal priesthood. (I encourage you to read and study this yourself for sure!) "Unto him [Jesus Christ] that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen." Consider how differently you would live your life here if you sat and contemplated what it means to live for forever. Jesus said so clearly, "What does it profit a person if he or she gains the WHOLE WORLD yet loses his or her soul?" What have you gained? In the ancient days they would anoint the head of a king, a queen or a priest. This is an outward symbol of God choosing someone to be in this position, often it is a symbol of the Holy Spirit being imparted to this person (in the case of King David, for example.) In the biblical understanding, a "king" is one who is a good, sovereign ruler, who rules well. Inwardly and psychologically, this is a ruling of your passions. God, the Holy Spirit working in us, can help us direct our passions towards becoming true virtues. This is instead of your passions ruling you (ie., this is what addictions and neuroticism is.) A priest is one who brings God to the people and the people to God. Well, inwardly, part of our "job" is to bring ourselves before the presence of God and bring God to this part of ourselves which previously has been "lost" in personality, alseep! How are we going to CHANGE this world? We start by waking up to our highest calling, God has called us to have an intimate relationship with Him. To be saved by the blood of Christ and transformed, with our nous/minds being renewed by the Holy Spirit! We are meant to understand our roles! I do my best to make this fun and creative because God has allowed me to "see" these truths in every day songs! Look at THE VERSE that we read (in a prayer meeting I "happened" to be at a few days AFTER I recorded this!) Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment but an old commandment that you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word that you have heard. 1 John 2:7 (NRSV) "the Word that you HEARD" is one of the exact lines from the Grease song! 💕💕 Look at more of the verses in this same chapter! ) I cannot make this stuff up!) "15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world, for all that is in the world—the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches—comes not from the Father but from the world. And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God abide forever. Children, it is the last hour! As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. From this we know that it is the last hour. ...But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and all of you have knowledge. I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and you know that no lie comes from the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son..." Much Love! Dr Cheryl
God Wants a CLOSE Relationship With YOU! "Beginnings" Teaching Part 2
44:44
Only the beginning...(Part 2) In the Beginning, God created (Genesis 1) 💕 ...God is an artist and you are a masterpiece of His creation! C.S. Lewis says that sometimes we wish we were just a quick sketch, but you are SO much more than that! God wants tp purify you, teach you, complete you to the fullness of what you were created to be. Why would we stop at the caterpillar stage if we are meant to be butterflies? This song says for us: Only the beginning, only just the start... The song I am referencing for this teaching is called "Beginnings" and it was written by Robert Lamm, one of the original founders of the band Chicago. (This was on their debut album! I just read that! ) This video is about developing and cultivating your wisdom, insight, and spiritual connection with God, who created us, who loves us, and wants closeness with us. (All of the Mystics, Christian Saint and others, describe this as a kind of union, mystic union, back to God, the bridegroom of our Soul, through Christ our Bridegroom.) God is Love so all songs about Love are actually expressing the Love of God, whether the writers know or not. I am a psychologist in my day job, and I have this passion to learn from God and teach (myself and others) how to grow in Love and closeness with God. This is the "strange" gift put in me, and we are each meant to activate our gifts so that the world can be benefited by what God put in us! I welcome you here! Enjoy! Much Love, Dr. Cheryl Meier #beginnings (Part 2, is at www.yoursoulsongs.com ) Here is the quote! I made a reel for us too of it! In creating a work of art, the psyche or soul of the artist ascends from the earthly realm into the heavenly. There, free of all images, the soul is fed in contemplation by the essences of the highest realm, knowing the permanent noumena of things. Then, satiated with this knowing, it descends again to the earthly realm. And precisely at the boundary between the two worlds, the soul’s spiritual knowledge assumes the shapes of symbolic imagery: and it is these images that make permanent the work of art. Art is thus materialized dream, separated from the ordinary consciousness of waking life. ~ Pavel Florensky reel link: https://youtube.com/shorts/jgZFFETaF2Q Part one is free on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/i7Yb95LXgPs
All you Need is Love: Understand What True Love Is
01:05:29
All you truly need is Love...and God is Love, so why would God ever want you to be in lack, of Love? He doesn't! So why are so many people in this lack? or perceiving that they are in lack, when ALL of the fullness of Love is always available to us in this very moment?! I love this Tolkien quote: The chances, the changes are all yours to make. The mold of your life is in your hands to break. ~ #jrrTolkien ✨ Here is the passage I was mentioning from the amazing man, Pavel Florensky...All art and music, philosophy and psychology too, in a way, comes from these higher realms: In creating a work of art, the psyche or soul of the artist ascends from the earthly realm into the heavenly. There, free of all images, the soul is fed in contemplation by the essences of the highest realm, knowing the permanent noumena of things. Then, satiated with this knowing, it descends again to the earthly realm. And precisely at the boundary between the two worlds, the soul's spiritual knowledge assumes the shapes of symbolic imagery: and it is these images that make permanent the work of art. Art is thus materialized dream, separated from the ordinary consciousness of waking life. ~ Pavel Florensky (b 1882) The verse I was meditating on was: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (!) 2 Timothy 1:7 ❤️💯 This LOVE is the word in Greek for Divine Love, AGAPE... This is not transactional or narcissistic "love", egotism love...but it is the real thing. Why not learn how to access the REAL Love? You are WORTH this Love, you were always worth it. Much Love, Dr. Cheryl
You are LOVED! 💕 🌈🌦️🕊 Lyrical Teaching inspired by the song: #RainbowConnection #Promises of #God
37:10
JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis describe Christ as the Myth that became REAL... It is like if Shakespeare wrote himself into one of his own plays, and got on the stage and acted in it! Just because it is "difficult" or impossible for our minds to grasp the whole of it, does not mean it is unknowable. You can know things that are true and your brain dows not understand how you know these things. This video is inspired by the song I learned when I was in elementary school, the "rainbow connection", it was in the muppet movie. About half way through this video I say that if I find a saint that had a vision of the rainbow, I will put it here! Well I found one, even before I had a chance to post this video! Saint John, the Beloved of Christ, whom I love so much! He wrote the book of Revelations and saw this: After these things I looked, and behold, a door opened in heaven . . . and a rainbow was around the throne (Revelation 4:1,3). And: Then I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud, and with a rainbow on his head (Revelation 10:1). and here is the original promise 🌈🌦️: And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. Genesis 9:8-16 🕊 What does all of this mean in our own lives?

Find Your True Path: Lyrical Teaching Inspired by "On The Road Again" #Drcherylmeier #lyricalpsychologist #OnTheRoadAgain
01:07:57
Welcome! Part one of this lyrically inspired teaching, along with a "cover" of Willie Nelson's song, is up on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/ooWvK05WSh8 Here is the rest of the teaching! I appreciate you being here so much! I wish you so much love and truth! Here is the description of the whole of the video: I was getting two + verses for this song, to illuminate the spiritual and psychological path for us "the Road" for when we feel like we are going through the dark night of the soul or just traveling through life, looking to God to show us the Way. From morning prayer, the day after I made this recording, before I posted, we just now read this psalm! Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the *path* of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. ("Pleasures" in Hebrew = like sweet songs (!) for evermore!) God gave me the verse! 💖 ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥 (It is hard to put into words what "God gave me the verse" means, but I know that I know that He did, for us, God gave us that verse!) And in the video I mentioned this one, Ephesians 2:10: For we are his *workmanship*, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. The word "workmanship in Greek is poema, POEM! God is a master crafts-man and He is the Almighty Most High Artist, in the "sky," the heavens... Our Father who ART in heaven :) We are each poems of God, songs! SO of course He can speak to us through songs! He can speak to us through any part of His creation! See Psalm 139, "even if I go to the depths of Sheol you are there..." "if I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." Psalm 139:8 ... I do not recommend making your bed in hell, whatever all that phrase means... but God calls us to get back on to the "King's Highway" His perfect path, His way, His road again! Of course we will set our eyes onto Jesus and we will keep insisting that the world (though not forcing it upon them) that they turn back, and "keep turning our way" to the true path, our Way, God's holy calling for each of our souls! Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. "I am the Way, the truth and the Life!" (John 14:6) Revelations 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called the way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there." Isaiah 35:8-9. #willienelson #cover #Spiritual #Path #road #again #lostAndFound #lost #Highway #KingsHighway There was an evangelist (wj chapman) from 1800's who traveled with a singer! He wrote: "THE KING'S HIGHWAY IS A PLAINLY MARKED ROAD...Jesus Christ. 1. There is the great Patriarchal road; travelled by Adam; in bad repair in Noah's time; a broad way of promises to Abram..." https://biblehub.com/sermons/auth/chapman/the_king's_highway.htm 💕 Welcome to my YouTube channel and welcome HERE to my webpage! I am so glad you are here! My name is Dr. Cheryl Meier. I am a clinical psychologist in my day job, and more recently a "lyrical psychologist" 🎶 I use music (all the time) to express deep psychological & spiritual content, so that we can enter these higher realms of understanding, and apply the truths to align with our true telos in Christ, which also happens to better our lives here! 💕 here is my linktree to all of my links in one place! https://linktr.ee/drcherylmeier 💕 George MacDonald said: "Do not teach your children they have a soul, teach them they are a soul and have a body." Your soul is always communicating how to get "home" -- back to True Love. Ultimately, God is Love, so, as Saint Augustine expressed: Our hearts are restless until they rest in God! Join me in this NEW, creative way to get healing in your life: I reveal the "ego path" vs the "soul path" in popular songs so that you can EXPERIENCE a new level of understanding ("More Love") DURING the video teaching! It's like a new kind of music therapy! We have these old "programs" running in our minds all the time (from the world) and it is important we learn how to let go of the old negative thought patterns. I stumbled upon this creative way to do this discipline! (See 2 Timothy 1:7, the Greek root word for "sound mind" is about discipline, disciple, learning to do one's true duty. This is a high and noble calling!) https://www.yoursoulsongs.com #Navigate your #Spiritual #Awakening https://www.instagram.com/drcherylmeier/ https://twitter.com/drcherylm Disclaimer: This video and any associated advice & comments shared are not a substitute for professional therapy, mental health care, crisis support, medical advice, doctor diagnosis, or professional healthcare treatment.
