Gifted With Dominion

By Hila J. Esters

The moment I realized the gift of dominion was my responsibility to receive, I asked the Holy Spirit to teach me how. Receiving dominion and then knowing how to walk in it as we live, move and have our being in our Father God is learned. Colossians 1:16-20 tells us that the Lord Jesus Christ has reconciled all things in heaven and earth to himself.

Since I am a joint heir with Jesus Christ, it is my responsibility to learn how to live my life in the glory of his kingdom with my God-given power of dominion. The Holy Spirit began teaching me by asking me to apply dominion to my life. Of course, to accomplish this required me to step outside of my comfort zone.

I began having realistic dreams. Sometimes the dreams put me in negative situations that challenged me to take action before the dream ended. If I didn’t resolve the problem by speaking to it with authority or by doing what I knew to do, eventually I would have the same dream or a similar one. My dreams were also about people I knew or strangers I would possibly meet in the future. My involvement varied, but there was always a decision to be made that sometimes required action.

Instead of wondering what each dream meant, I asked the Holy Spirit. I knew that applying what I heard would change my life. As I waited in silence to hear something profound, he said, ‘I want you to write a book!’ He showed me the title, the layout of the book and then said, ‘Get it done!’

Writing the book with spiritual focus from God’s throne perspective of dominion just as I was shown, allowed me to finish the study manual in two and one-half months. Then I was told to interview people in the ministry, arts and entertainment business on my radio podcast. All of these people were strangers to me. Stepping up to overcome my safe space called ‘I’d rather teach!’, I used social media to reach out to various ministers, authors, singers, and artists who were willing to be interviewed and share their products and services on my podcast.

As dreams, visions and corresponding assignments continue to show me how to unwrap God’s gift of dominion, the Holy Spirit also gives me the opportunity to deal with adversity and resistance in my heart. Love, integrity, and pureness of heart among other godly attributes are a must for anyone who lives and moves in God’s dominion.

The gift of dominion is unwrapped from the good treasure of eternal life and love in our hearts. The treasure you have allowed in your heart, whether good or bad, determines the ease of how you walk in dominion over every situation and circumstance or how they walk over you. Cooperating with the Holy Spirit to reveal the treasure in your heart through your dreams, visions, and imagination invites the excitement of discovery and unwraps your gift of dominion.

Living From Memory

By Hila J. Esters

I use to think that living from memory meant living in the past.  Unfortunately, until I learned how to truly live life, I allowed my memories, good and bad, to do the driving.  The good memories caused me to reminisce and the bad memories only created unpleasant emotions.  This made me realize that I needed help to move on.  One day a thought floated up to me in my spirit.  ‘How can I help you change your life when all you see is where you’ve been?’

As if on cue, thoughts of my past began nudging at me.  With force, they were actively seeking my permission to be imagined and ‘come alive’.  I knew that if I gave in to these thoughts, my imagination would link them together causing me to hear the same words and feel the same feelings.  Linking these past thoughts would also display past memories in scenes I desired to leave behind.  From experience, I also knew that to repeatedly entertain these thoughts would cause my emotions to intensify all over again.  What would ever change?  Nothing!

There was no way I could progress in life by constantly reliving the events of my past even with the feelings of wins or the strength I gained from the fight back of losses.  How could I learn to stop looking in the rear view mirror while moving forward?  Again, the thought floated up to me, ‘How can I help you change your life when all you see is where you’ve been?’  Yes, I needed help to control familiar thoughts from my past, but I also needed help to see and interact with the unknowns on my new path.

With God, all things are possible.  Matthew 7:7-8 and Luke 11:9-10 assure us that he gives when we ask and everyone that asks receives.  He allows us to find what we seek.  As we knock, he opens the door.  These scriptures tell me that I’m not expected to choose my new path, but to take the initiative to receive it, then find it and enter in.  Recognizing, receiving and then taking action with the vital information and direction I needed to move forward with confidence, was no longer a major problem.

By faith, my job is to create a new memory by using my imagination to create each completed scene.  By visualizing myself in the scene and feeling as though I am already there, I focus my completed forward moving thoughts in this new direction.  With each step I take, I create a new scene.  Surrounded by my new environment, I ‘live’ there until all becomes real to me.

Finally, I heard the words, ‘It’s time!’  The new path awaiting me was only a moment away.  By faith, I buckled up with the intention of only following God’s lead by waiting to hear his direction before taking the next step.  Instead of seeing, feeling and recreating the past, I was living from memory by seeing, feeling and creating my now.

Living in Transition

By Hila J. Esters

Life is lived moment by moment in constant transition.  Living a timeless life in the moment where the progressive end exists with the beginning requires spiritual vision, thought-discipline, joy and a powerful release of ‘I believe, therefore I have spoken.’ I don’t know of anyone including myself who expects daily life to stand still for them. Even our habits have to evolve to keep up with change or they begin to hold us back from realizing our dreams.

Change is inevitable so why not be the major element that brings about that change?  I began by realizing that my ‘Why does this keep happening to me?’ question on the outside did not match my who, what when, where, why and how experiences on the inside.  Using my spiritual vision to see myself where I desired to be wasn’t enough.  I had to transition there now by allowing my thoughts, feelings, and words to separate the daily me from the moment by moment me!

Setting goals for myself required that I pass self-imposed awareness checks.  Holding myself regularly accountable for what I was seeing, thinking, and feeling at any given moment during my transition was necessary because my progressive end exists with the joy of beginning my new life experience.  Awareness of faith developed by spiritual change in what I now believed was key before I could progressively use my faith-filled words and actions to joyfully invoke lasting change in my circumstances.  Progressing spiritually while allowing myself to return naturally to the same old me was no longer possible.

Realizing that the progressive end exists with the beginning keeps us on the right track of releasing infinite possibilities in our lives.  “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak” as written 2 Corinthians 4:13 is applied to our lives daily whether we realize it or not.  We speak what we believe and therefore our lives reflect what we think, say and do.

As you can see, we change our lives from the inside out.  When we stop letting life ‘happen’ to us and choose to happen to life, we step out of deeply dug ruts we’ve formed in our brains by repeatedly thinking adverse thoughts.  Taking the first step up and out of these strategically connected thought ruts allows us to see life differently, hear new sounds, breathe fresh air, feel a new sense of touch, speak from a new perspective and move about freely.

Now that we are aware of living moment by moment in constant transition, the spiritual and natural freedom we realize changes our lives for the better.  Knowing the truth of who holds our most precious dreams, we are able to see the what when, where, why and how of them.  Out of the ruts, we live our dreams as reality now.  Seeing the end, feeling the truth and speaking the change, we change our lives and move on.

Cut the Strings!

By Hila J. Esters

Awareness opens the door of possibility to the previously unknown.  Once we become aware that a situation or fact has held us back from advancing or has locked us down to thinking, ‘I can’t escape’ in any area of personal or social growth, various choices begin to present themselves.  Once our eyes are opened, exploration into various possibilities that have always been there for us begins!

Early one morning, I awoke to a brief three-part vision.  Standing there, held up by dirty old strings, was a dejected, filthy, water-stained wooden boy puppet.  In the silence of the vision, he was very still.  His head was bowed, and his arms hung down at his sides.  I couldn’t see his eyes, but I knew they were closed.  Somehow, I could sense his pain.

The young boy wore an old-time Swedish hat.  Stuck in the band was a bent worn out feather.  His painted on short sleeved ‘white’ shirt was tucked into torn blue cuffed shorts.  Green, tattered, suspenders were buttoned to his shorts.  On his feet were scuffed up, dark brown, wooden clog shoes.

Suddenly, without a pull on the strings, he lifted his head.  His eyes were wide open as if in shock.  Somehow, he suddenly realized something that could no longer remain hidden from him.  I stared at the boy intently as the shock of realization slowly dissipated from his eyes and they gradually transformed to a fixed unshakable determination.  For a brief moment, I thought he could see me.  Now, I was in shock!

As I continued to watch him, wondering how he could suddenly come alive, his eyes narrowed.  The dirty old strings that held him; the tattered, filthy, clothes he wore and the pain he had suffered no longer mattered.  Without help or permission, he lifted his right arm high above his head.  In his hand, held perpendicular to the strings, was a very large pair of scissors.  Without a second thought, he cut the strings!  Did he fall?  No!  He stood there looking at me intently.  What he suddenly realized was that he could stand on his own without someone else thinking for him and especially without the manipulation of strings.

Later, as I reflected on the vision, I began to realize that the young puppet represented most of us at one time or another in our lives.  The unaware, immature puppet represented the manipulation and control by people who lead others to believe that they are ‘in the know.’  They cunningly take advantage of people who aren’t aware of and therefore are not educated in the things they don’t know exist.  These people pull the strings of others to their own advantage.

Sometimes, for some of us, courage springs out of hitting ‘rock bottom.’  Steel nerves and determination are developed quickly when a necessary decision to break loose must be made.  Before we can discover all the new possibilities real life holds for us we must leave the puppet mentality behind and cut the strings!

Stepping Through the Veil

Stepping Through the Veil

By Hila J. Esters

After realizing that the things I desired most in life were already inside of me, immediately, I decided to stop waiting for them.  That one decision changed how I lived my life.  I must admit that before this, even though I worked toward and consistently focused on my goals, the results I produced remained hit and miss.  There were times when simply seeing the desired result and then describing it as reality in my life was enough for it to happen just that way.  Other times, not so.

Since what I desired most in life was already within me, I decided that I had to make decisions from the point of possession.  Haven’t we all heard at one time or another the phrase, ‘Possession is nine-tenths of the law?’  It means that ownership is easier to maintain if one has possession of something, or difficult to enforce if one does not.

Stepping through the veil from the mindset of getting to the joy of having, allowed me to step into the reality of now.  For me to maintain ownership in my thoughts and manifest my possessions, further spiritual education was necessary.  Learning to change from the struggles of working to obtain, to the power of seeing while adding feeling and emotion was absolutely necessary.

Knowing that the spiritual realm is a timeless reality, challenged me to change my thinking from ‘I’m going to get’ to ‘I have it now’.  I had to transition from time-limited thoughts, to in the moment timeless reality thoughts.  To stay in the spiritual reality of the moment requires discipline.  After making the decision to practice this method of present tense thinking, I began checking my thoughts in brief intervals until this way of thinking became habitual.  For my progressive present tense thinking to remain in this now position of possession, I needed to align the power of ‘having it now’ with genuine feelings of joy and grateful emotion.

As my words and actions followed this now way of present tense thinking, limitless possibilities of living and sharing a miraculous manifestation lifestyle presented themselves to me.  After clearly seeing what I already possessed in the spiritual realm, I found myself stepping through the veil with gratitude to view and enjoy the experience of having my heart’s desire before speaking it into the natural realm.  Now, I love the challenge of manifesting into the natural realm of my daily life, what I have already experienced in my limitless spirit.

In times of struggle and uncertainty, when one day seamlessly blends into the next, wouldn’t you like to step through the veil and bring change to your life?  You have the power to take the challenge!  Make the life-changing decision to transition your thinking from ‘time-limited thoughts’ to ‘in the moment thoughts,’ from ‘I’m going to get’ to ‘I have it now’.  Stepping through the veil while simultaneously feeling the limitations of struggle and uncertainty fall away is living with excellence in a magnificent way!

The Key to Freedom

By Hila J. Esters

The key to freedom is sometimes found in a very elusive place. What is an elusive place? Anything elusive is hard to get a hold of. It eludes you. Almost all of us have had wonderful dreams where we are living our lives very differently. We have the things or we’re doing the very things we’ve always desired. Where is that place in our dreams? How do we get there from here? Is it attainable? Yes!!

Has someone you know ever pointed out a flaw you have and then just walked away without giving you an explanation? One day, I heard the voice of God calmly say to me, ‘You’re too critical.’ That’s all he said. My immediate response was, ‘I’m not critical!’ Oh, but I was! I didn’t realize it because it was masked in containers of what I thought was right and wrong. The key to my freedom was to discover the elusive hidden place within me that was making the critical determinations for me. Of course, the solution didn’t come overnight. I was led to the realization and discovery of my critical thoughts one cooperative step at a time.

We hear people say all the time that they are living their dreams. We can wait for our dreams to somehow show up in our lives, or we can go after them within ourselves. I chose to do the latter and go face to face with myself. Changing our daily lives by bringing the reality of our dreams into them requires finding the key to the place that is stopping the transference.

Deciding to set triggers for myself, I first began to notice what emotion I was feeling as the critical thought was coming to me. Then I realized that this emotion caused my eyebrows to narrow. Setting myself to be consciously aware of these two triggers helped me become instantly aware of my critical thoughts, hold them in, and then analyze them. By doing this, I was able to stop my words and then ask and receive from God what caused this particular pattern of thoughts.

My elusive place was covered and blocked with the negative preconceived ideas I had learned over time from others. My critical thoughts and words created a negative pattern of experiences that I had previously accepted as unchangeable. They formed my life by blocking the reality of my dreams from changing it.

Once I discovered the cause of my criticism and the lock that held my life in place, I turned the key to freedom. Opening the door to that no longer elusive place, I meticulously cleaned out the ‘room.’ By allowing my dreams to fill it, I changed my thoughts, thereby changing my imagination, words, and actions. My life changed, and I began to live my dream.

Find the elusive place that holds your life-changing dreams. Decide to face yourself off. Face to face, you can discover what blocks you from living your dreams and turn the key to freedom!

Lessons In My Dreams

By Hila J. Esters

When the events I truly expected to manifest in my life seemed to be delayed, I realized that I had to expand my thoughts and ways to a higher level. As I began to examine the previous year and what I deemed as spiritual growth and progress with corresponding actions, I questioned God about the delay.  Was He delaying my promised blessing or was it somehow me?  He answered me by using my dreams to pinpoint and then guide me into the significant personal changes I needed to make before what I desired could take place in my life.

To dream in vivid living color is an adventure waiting to be experienced.  Most of the time I awake feeling good and fully rested as I allow the dream to quickly float away in my mind.  One morning, thinking I was awake, I discovered that I was still asleep.  The storyline of my dreams and my real life involvement in them had significantly changed.  God gave me dreams that were designed to get and keep my attention.

I began to realize that the realistic dream settings, though displayed in single homes or in multiple restroom stalls in different hotels, distinctly portrayed the same core meanings.  Let’s just say that in each dream for some time, the stalls I sought to use needed deep cleaning, including the floors.  At first, believe me, I couldn’t understand what the dreams were about.  As I questioned God, even more, the answer floated up to me.  The scenes represented my thoughts, words, and actions.  The dreams had nothing to do with offensive words, but with negative thinking and the unthoughtful expressions of them.

For the upcoming events I desired to manifest, spiritual and personal progression on my part, was necessary.  The decision to change and advance was mine.  My heavenly Father’s desire was to prepare me not only to receive my blessing but to learn how to maintain it while continuing to grow spiritually and naturally.  His plan is always that we are blessed to be a blessing.

To help me remember the dreams and hold the progressive storylines in my memory, I needed to describe and date the description of each dream as well as the events that took place.  I also recorded how my involvement in them affected me, especially paying attention to the very realistic negative details in the dream.  After asking for and hearing God reveal their meanings and how they applied to my thoughts, words and certain actions, I immediately made the necessary changes.

Finally, as I continued to progress in my thinking, grow spiritually and maintain more positivity daily, the appearance of the restrooms and stalls in my dreams gradually changed.  Eventually, when I walked into a restroom anywhere in my dreams, I found clean, pleasant surroundings.  My dream lessons taught me that what we may think is acceptable to God in our thoughts, words and actions are not necessarily what He thinks is acceptable before manifesting our blessings.

Hidden In Plain Sight

By Hila J. Esters

Have you ever looked in the mirror of your soul?  What you find there may surprise you, as it did me.  Although a promise from God seemed to be at the point of manifestation, I sensed that instead of manifestation, I had actually come to a spiritual plateau.  Fighting off the opportunity again, to give in to disappointment, I soon realized that before me was another crossroads.  For promises to manifest, we must first receive wisdom and understanding of the responsibilities that are required.  Believing for and receiving the promise is just the beginning.  Therefore, at the new crossroads, new opportunities to learn and experience more with the Holy Spirit were also presented.

Having a made up mind from the beginning to do all that was necessary to experience God’s promise, should have made my choice at the crossroads a simple one.  Choosing to be progressive in the spiritual realm by discovering new levels and dimensions with the Holy Spirit allows the choices I make to be founded in the wisdom of God.  I was surprised to find that the difficulty I faced in aligning with God’s will to pursue his choice for me was embedded within my subconscious mind.  Would my learned wisdom from past crossroads hinder my ability to hear, see and choose the right road?

With expectation mixed with excitement, I geared up to learn something new.  At the same time, I wondered why I was led to another crossroads instead of the manifested promise.  Was it a lesson in patience concerning spiritual to natural timing or was it me?  Because of my love for God, I knew from experience to inwardly commit to change and growth before I asked for and received his wisdom and direction.  Clearing my mind of preconceived thoughts, I set my spiritual focus in God’s light of peace and love.  Asking the Holy Spirit to teach me, and show me my next step of faith, I listened.

In the quietness of my spirit I heard him ask, “Do you believe?”  My immediate answer was ‘Yes!’  Gently he said, “No, you don’t.”  I just sat there in silence.  I didn’t know what to say so I didn’t say anything.  I tried not to think or get emotional.  I kept listening.  He continued, “I’ve led you to a place in your life where you have to dig deeper to go higher.  My calling on your life requires more transparency; more growth.  My desire for you is to receive more than you expect, allowing my promises to flow in you and through you at all times.”

Immediately, I used my imagination to run what I call ‘reality film clips’.  They help me solidify what I truly believe in my heart.  Hidden in plain sight were various ‘what if’ thoughts, comparing the old road to the possibilities of the new one.  Discovering the limiting thoughts enabled me to remove them, align with the God’s will and progressively choose the right road at the crossroads.

Turn the Page

By Hila J. Esters

At 3 years old when I began having conversations with God, I lived my life expecting to hear from Him.  If I needed to talk to him, I would.  If he needed to tell me anything about my life or about someone else, he would.  I figured since God said it, it had to happen.  I was right!  With the wonder and excitement of a child, I began to realize that most of the time what I heard came about within 3 days!  Each time, I waited in expectation to see what he said happen or to hear about it.  To me, living every day of my life with God, was normal.

Although I kept my relationship with God to myself, I made the mistake of thinking that there must be many other people who talked to God and heard from him just like I did.  Over time, as I began to share my experiences and the things I continued to hear from him with the people I thought could relate to them, I was met with adversity and even condemnation.  Because they tried to change me and what I knew to be true, my life became a lonely one.

Soon after, God’s loving-kindness introduced me to the power of the Holy Spirit.  He taught me how to forgive and how to allow the unlimited power of God to demonstrate his spoken Word in my life by turning the page of a book.  Using my imagination, I could see the open book.  The page on the right was filled with the spiritual darkness of adversity and condemnation.  First, I forgave the people whose spoken words filled the page.  Then, by faith, I turned the page.  The new page was blank.  Making the decision to forgive before I turned the page allowed the unlimited power of God to remove the words of adversity and condemnation.  Looking at the new page, I discovered that it was now filled with the power of God’s spoken Word for my life.

How is this possible?  Jesus said, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.  Consider the incomprehensible suffering Jesus Christ endured as he shed his sinless blood to redeem us from the curse of the law of sin and death on the cross of Calvary.  Removing all of his resistance to sin and death, enabled him to redeem us by becoming a curse for us.  After commending his spirit into his Father’s hands, he died and suffered all the torments of hell.

When the suffering and torments of sin, death, and hell were fully paid, Jesus Christ was quickened from death by the Spirit.  After conquering and spoiling Satan in hell, he was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father.  The Lord Jesus Christ was dead and now lives forevermore with the keys of hell and death.  In him, redemption and restoration are complete.

In 3 days, Jesus Christ turned the page for the whole world!

Unlimited Thoughts or Thoughts Unlimited

By Hila J. Esters

Sensing and then knowing that something is missing or no longer right in my life, I have to make a change. Once I identify that ‘something’, I then use my earnest desire and boldness to make a right now decision to change it or to fill it. For me, creating something new or deciding to make a change in my life, causes an influx of unlimited thoughts to arrive.

My initial goal is to funnel the unlimited influx of thoughts that seem to overwhelm me, down to the one thought I desire that is unlimited and full of potential. This thought either lights up the ‘idea bulb’ in my mind or causes a creative flow of connected thoughts to arise in my imagination.

Receiving my initial thought is a process of first quieting and clearing my mind by relaxing, without thinking my own thoughts. Doing this allows me to recognize and receive the new unlimited thought I desire. This thought is full of creative potential. As I allow this one thought to remain in my mind without trying to mix it with my present way of thinking, other new thoughts that are associated with this one thought begin to funnel through all the influx of unwanted thoughts, join to it and cause it to expand.

Now, I have given myself the opportunity to partake of powerful life-changing thoughts that are unlimited in potential. By allowing myself to imagine the need fulfilled or changed, I can move forward in my spirit and mind by stepping into these unlimited thoughts and allow myself to enjoy discovering, arranging, changing and living in the now of my imagination. As my thinking changes, what I say and do also changes. Proverbs 23:7 tells us, For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

To show you how simple this process is to accomplish new goals, let’s take a train ride! We will refer to our spirit and mind as the engine, an individual thought as a boxcar and our associated thoughts as boxcars that hook up to the lead car, finishing the train. The engine pulls the long line of hooked together box cars which represent your patterns of thought. These patterns of thought are how we think concerning any subject or given situation in our lives.

Knowingly or unknowingly the thoughts we live by, try to keep us traveling on a nice neat figure eight train track watching the same scenery or the never-ending long distance track we created or accepted at some point in our lives. To change our thoughts or create new patterns of thought, we must change the individual boxcars beginning at the root of the matter, which is the lead car behind the engine. Sometimes our patterns of thought do not need to change, but we have to switch to another track. Throwing the switch to travel on a new track represents changing your surroundings. Enjoy the unlimited potential of your new thoughts!
