Was Jesus a Unicorn?

Was Jesus a unicorn? Dare I say: YES!

In the early church days, the unicorn was interpreted as an allegory to Christ. This creature represented purity and love.

Jesus is a unicorn? What? Now this girl is getting really weird. Someone needs to slap this writer with a Bible.

An ancient Greek bestiary called the Physiologus, talks about how the unicorn is powerfully strong and extremely fierce. The only way to capture such a beast was if a virgin was nearby. This beautiful, strong beast would cuddle up in a virgin’s lap, and as the maiden suckled it, she would lead it to the king’s palace to most likely be slaughtered.

This is where people compared it to Christ—who came through the womb of a virgin and laid down His life for us.

The Maiden and the Unicorn by Domenichino

Jesus didn’t bow to the religious thinkers of His day. He brought a brand-new insight that people balked at—and they even said He was possessed by a demon.

It’s kind of funny to me how we box ourselves in—when Jesus Himself broke every box in the religious system at the time.

Jesus healed in unconventional ways.

How many times did Jesus break their rules? The religious leaders of that day watched Him with a critical eye. They were just waiting to pounce on Him about breaking the Sabbath.

Luke 6:6-11

6 On another Sabbath He entered the synagogue and was teaching; and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. 7 The scribes and the Pharisees were watching Him closely to see if He healed on the Sabbath, so that they might find reason to accuse Him. 8 But He knew what they were thinking, and He said to the man with the withered hand, “Get up and come forward!”

And he got up and came forward. 9 And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to destroy it?” 10 After looking around at them all, He said to him, “Stretch out your hand!” And he did so; and his hand was restored. 11 But they themselves were filled with rage, and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

When I picture Jesus doing this stuff I think, Man, Jesus was brave! He even knew what they were thinking, according to that scripture, and He did it anyways! Then they started to plot a way to take Him out.

Jesus was one ballsy unicorn.

In Luke 8:49-55 the story unfolds where Jairus’s daughter is proclaimed to be dead. Instead of faltering, Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid. Have faith, and she will be healed.”

Think about those words, “She will be healed.” She wasn’t sick anymore—she was dead. How could she be healed if she was dead? Apparently, Jesus didn’t view things the same as everyone else.

Jesus was a unicorn thinker in all its glory. He also healed the lepers—who were deemed untouchable as well. I want to get back to THAT Jesus. The one who was unafraid to express His belief, and show love the way it resonated with Him.

That’s what being a Unicorn is all about.

What if He’d bowed to the religious people’s ways in His day? What if He’d said, “Crap, I can’t raise dead people. I can’t heal on the Sabbath.” He would have never expressed His mission on this earth—to show Daddy God like no one else had.

My heart has really come back to Jesus—because I’m starting to see that He was brave, bold, and expressed who He saw Daddy God to be. What if He’d decided to be like all the others?

Instead, Jesus looked at the adulterer and said, “I don’t condemn you.” When in their law, she should have been stoned. Talk about a unicorn thinker. Reminds me of a Christian who uses angel cards—wink wink.

Jesus’ path wasn’t easy, and He certainly broke a lot of laws! What if your healing, mission, and inner work is being hindered simply because you have shut down the path God is trying to take you down?

Are you a unicorn like Jesus?

Unicorns in the BIBLE, Say WHAT?

 

Yes. I believe in unicorns.

Don’t you? What’s not to love about them? They’re a white horse with a horn coming out of their head, and rainbows shooting out of their cute, fluffy butts. Anything that burps out puffs of glitter is guaranteed to make you feel a little better about life.

Where did this unicorn idea come from? Did someone just say, “Hey, guys, I want to believe in a magical horse with a colorful horn.”

Blank stare.

“I saw a creature the other day that can poop Skittles. Legit story, bro.”

Smack!

The legend of the unicorn developed like any good myth—with something real. Let’s get ready to blow your mind.

Unicorns are in the Bible.

1

Wait, what? I can see your mind spinning even now. You’re probably thinking, this girl is cray-cray. There are definitely NOT unicorns in the Bible! Unicorns are make-believe frou-frou stuff for little girls. Well, darling, if you don’t believe me, let’s take a look.

Numbers 23:22

God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

Apparently, according to the Bible, unicorns are epic strong. They have to be in order to put up with everyone’s nonsense. These things are like the Hulk. Except not green and not an Avenger. And, let’s face it, they are way cuter. Sorry, Hulk.

All right, so one verse talks about unicorns, and now she’s talking about the Hulk? That doesn’t prove anything, right? This is just silly nonsense.

In that verse, they compared GOD Himself to a unicorn. There goes the manly card for God. Sorry, God, you are now a cute, white, fluffy horse with a horn. Oh, and You fart rainbows.

Oh my gosh, now she’s comparing GOD to a unicorn? This is just too much! God definitely does NOT fart rainbows!

Let’s read another scripture; this is getting fun now.

Job 39:9

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

No idea why you’d want a unicorn hanging out by your crib, but all right, Job. Maybe the unicorn was helping put the baby to sleep by looking at the kid with its big, beautiful, blue eyes? Glitter—sparkles—of course that could be it.

Among this verse, Job is talking about all kinds of animals, so whatever this thing was claimed to be, it was a real creature. As real as the other animals he listed such as a: wild goat, wild ass, peacock, ostrich, horse, and the grasshopper.

2

Deuteronomy 33:17

His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns:

I don’t know what a bullock is, but unicorns have a pretty epic horn coming out of their head. Great for stabbing people who annoy you throughout the day.

If you’re a unicorn, you do what you want.

No, you shouldn’t be stabbing people—that is bad doctrine.

I know what you’re thinking. Wait a second. This is real? And there are more scriptures still? Come on, unicorns in the Bible? This is a giant joke.

No joke, people. Unicorns are real. Jesus said so. Well, okay Jesus never mentioned unicorns, but I just had to say that. If Jesus could pick an animal for a pet, I’m pretty sure He’d pick a unicorn. I mean, who wouldn’t? They’re adorable, colorful, and can poop out ice-cream.

Job 39:10

Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? Or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

After reading some of those verses, is it really so crazy to believe unicorns are real? Not really. Open your heart up wide—let’s take a ride on the rainbows.

The Flow of Energy: Lesson 3

Today, I was lying on my bed and trying to figure out why I was experiencing a few aches and pains in my body. I’m one of those, “There’s a reason why this hurts” type of person. For the last couple days, I have been experiencing energy healing and flow.

Suddenly, it hit me like a ton of angel kisses. 

Duh. All those toxins are leaving my body, and I gotta flush them out!

Lesson 3: Flowing Energy=Detoxing the Body

I could still feel the angels around me and knew they were giving me some Ah-ha moments concerning what my body was going through. Drink water. 

My guardian angel, Morgan, told me to work on my chakras, so I let those flow and spin.

Just like having a massage, exercising, or anything of that sort, the body will tell you that its releasing some stuff.

If you feel drawn to certain foods (for me it was blueberries) make sure you’re giving your body what it needs as you allow energy healing to flow.

Have you experienced detoxing from energy work? I’d love to hear from you!

God, I Want to Help People!

For a while now, I have been having this burning feeling inside of me. It’s a mixture of emotions I couldn’t quite explain. As I sat at my desk tonight, I pulled from two separate angel card decks. In both decks I got a similar card: laughter. I sat back for a moment and watched some YouTube videos that made me laugh.

I felt this urge to look up Kyle Cease. I’d stumbled upon him through Facebook a while back, and instantly his stuff made me cry and laugh–sometimes together!

As I watched this amazing transformation happen with this lady, I started to cry myself. I had no idea why I was crying, until suddenly it came out of my mouth in a desperate way, “God I want to help people!” Right now instant tears  are springing to my eyes, because it’s this aching desire that I feel.

I see hurting people every day, and my heart aches and hurts with them. I want to fix it. I want to fix all of it. I know I can’t fix every wound, every problem, and help everyone out there. I get overwhelmed by the immense sorrow and struggle everyone seems to face.

Why does it seem so many are unhappy?

As an empath, my heart is to heal everyone. I keep telling myself, “You can’t fix them. They have to choose to fix themselves.” And in reality, we’re not broken. We just keep getting attached to the mess.

Our true essence is beautiful.

My words feel like a struggle–I know they are meant to roar in the atmosphere and shatter depression and change lives around me. I know it deep in the pit of who I am. As an author I push my books out there, but don’t seem to see much impact.

Then my heart breaks and aches, because I want my stuff to help heal the broken, wounded, and lost souls around me.

Then I watch Kyle, and I realize–I need to be okay with it all. I need to be okay with my pain and struggle of wanting to be heard. I need to say, “I want to help people and feel limited, and I love that.” He talks a lot about loving where we’re at, and embracing the moment. When we love even our “mess” we make space for the answer to push through.

When we push against something, all we see is what we’re pushing against. We block opportunities. When I hear about sorrow my inner being shouts, “Help them!” I know deep within me, my voice is going to shake the nations. But, I feel weak. Insecure. Not sure if anyone cares.

I know I can’t be Kyle Cease. I have to be me.

I know that I have a message of love–connection–and empowering people. I know buried in me is the voice of a warrior princess–who is brave, true to herself, and proclaims healing to all.

In my new book (still to be released)–all my guts hang out. It’s been a work in progress, because each chapter I write, I find this new side of me peeking from the shadows saying, “Let me out!”

This world is not going to hell. This world is full of light. We are light and love. We are an essence of Source and the Universe, and God Himself. We are stardust and light. We are souls of great power and beauty.

Shine, beauties. 

Overcoming my own negative voice is the first step to showing you your voice of power too.

I feel stuck at the bottom. Not sure how to get to the top of the mountain to be heard. I don’t know how to share the message of healing, love, and light to everyone.

It reminds me of the show I’m watching: Merlin. Here Merlin is the greatest sorcerer of all time, and he doesn’t even know it. He can’t even openly show his power for fear of what will happen.

We all hold this endless power inside of us–we are literally the Universe itself in a manifested physical form–and we think that’s weak?

We hold it all inside of us. Every particle is packed full of energy that can shape worlds.

The ache is there–but expressing myself every day makes the ache a little less. Maybe this will help you today. Maybe it was just for me.

You are Needed

This World Needs Your Voice

Ripped piece of paper on grunge paper background. Love letter
I received this message this morning from a Facebook Friend, “Your voice matters.. never be afraid to use it.. someone will need to hear your perspective.”
 
At first I thought, “Awe, that was nice.” Then it sparked something.
 
Someone will need to hear your perspective.
 
That got me thinking about all the authors, teachers, and Youtubers, who’ve helped me heal, awaken, and overcome some huge obstacles. What if they hadn’t used their voice?What if they’d listened to the doubts, fears, and blah-blah you can’t do it voice inside of their heads? They all started somewhere.
 
I would have never got the help I needed. I would have never seen the perspective I needed at that time in my life.
 
Everyone has a unique perspective. It doesn’t matter who you are–you will not look at the world the same as everyone else.
 
You can either let that make you feel alone or completely alive. My world is unique to me. I’m creating it by energy and intention. It’s exciting to create something beautiful each day in my life. Relationships, creativity, beautiful thoughts, and more. All of it is my creation–and those who need my perspective will be drawn to it.
 
My number one goal with my new book is: Give people back their power.
 
I want to help awaken others to who they are, and breathe life into their visions and dreams.
 
Your perspective IS needed.
People will be drawn to your service.
Be the beautiful you that you are–and be it with joy.
Your world is unique to you–create with joy.

The struggle of Expression

The battle of Mind verses Inner Being
 
Often as I’m learning and growing my mind likes to have what I call “freak out” times. I’ll be expressing and being myself, living in my full potential when BAM, the mind (ego) likes to say, “Ah, don’t shine too much. Wait a minute, what if they don’t LIKE YOU. OH NO. Hold on a minute, they don’t agree with you, you should try to change them. Run and hide! Run and hide!”
 
I wrestle with my own expression. We all do. Yet, we want to express, be a unique thinker, and shine. I find it funny how we all feel different, yet we don’t identify that it’s a common emotion. We want to be out of the box, yet we fear it as much as we want it.
 
Those who step outside of the box and shine will usually get ego-fears from others trying to dull their sparkle.
 
Why?
 
Because, it illuminates their own lack of living from their inner being–and that’s scary and doesn’t feel good. When we look at people who shine brightly, generally we want to make them look a bit smaller, so we look brighter.
 
Sometimes we simply just dull ourselves, so we don’t feel so crappy about someone over-shining us.
 
As a creative type, I was born to SHINE. Yet, I fear it too. I battle what I call the writer’s blues, where you want to express, yet fear people’s rejection of you.
Beautiful smiling cute baby
Whoever resonates with me will find me. Whoever doesn’t won’t. It’s as simple as that. I try to tell myself this each day. Even if I get one like, one fan, but maybe that fan will change the world, and hey, I’ll have part of that.
 
The ego would love to shut me and you up. And it almost has at times.
 
Yet I think of great teachers, writers, or people who shine, and I want to do what they do. They give me courage. Let those around you who shine encourage you. Look at them and think, “I have in me the same source of love as they do to shine brightly.”
 
Then shine, baby, shine!!!

Do you feel left behind?

Do you struggle with feeling behind?

 
Last night was rough for me, and I found myself going through a roller coaster of emotions. Thank God I’ve learned to accept, love, and comfort myself through times of pain.
 
As I drove home, I started sobbing about how I felt scared, behind, and just a bunch of emotions that surfaced. Although, I was happy in watching my friend recommit herself to her husband, after a lot of rockiness to their marriage, it triggered me from my own past marriage. I started to feel not good enough, unworthy, and just a bunch of fear and mess.
 
Would I ever see a man look at me like the way her husband looked at her? Would I ever want to get married again? Would my spouse love me as much as I loved them? How would I know if it would work or they loved me truly?
 
Although, my heart has healed a lot, and I’ll talk about remarrying one day, I still get huge fears that POP up and tell me NO WAY. As I drove, and sobbed my face off, I talked to God and He said, “I accept you where you’re at, Tash. It’s okay the stage you’re at right now. You’re not them, and they aren’t you. You don’t need to force yourself to be where others are at.”
 
As I went, I really felt Jesus comforting me, and telling me over and over how He’d walk with me every step. This in itself is a miracle. I touch on my spiritual story in my new book (yet to be released), my trust in Jesus was shattered from my past. The fact that I now trusted Him enough to be with me was a miracle in itself.
 
Through a bunch of emotion, I finally accepted that I was okay with my stage in life, and it didn’t make me less than others even though I wasn’t married, having kids, or having a white picket fence yet.
 
Struggling with “left behind” feelings is TOUGH. If you are divorced, older and not married, desiring children, wanting a healthy relationship, or haven’t fulfilled your dreams yet, I understand your struggle.
acceptance
The first step to healing, is accepting where you’re at. Accept you. It’s OK you’re at where you’re at. And from that acceptance, you can go forward. I spent so much emotional energy on regret, shame, blame, and fear, that I was exhausted in the past.
 
The fact that I’m even dating (without tons of emotional blowups, like with my last boyfriend) is a healing message. Although, my fears pop up about loving like I did in the past, I can accept my relationship right where its at.
 

I can accept me right where I’m at.

 
It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to feel crappy. It’s okay if you feel left out, left behind, and broken. Accept that. When you love every emotion, it starts to HEAL YOU. When you beat yourself up for not being better (or fill in the blank) all it creates is more PAIN.
 
I’ve come to realize too if pain comes up that’s GOOD. I know that sounds crazy, but obviously there was still pain there to come out. Weddings are still hard on me, and seeing people recover from the brink of divorce is also hard on me, or hearing about divorce in general. But, I also know that my story isn’t their story. What I faced was different, and beating myself up for that doesn’t help anyone.
 
Accept where you’re at. You’re doing great. You’re moving forward one step at a time. You’ve got this, darlings. Choose your own path a day at a time.

Who are YOU Impacting? 3 Tips for Success

 

Who are you impacting?

boom

As a kid did you pick up a dandelion and blow its seeds all over? There was something about watching those little puff balls dance on the wind that just felt GOOD.

We ALL have seeds inside of us.

blow your seeds

My mom recently preached a sermon about this very thing. One tiny act of reaching out to a bum on the street, completely changed his life and his entire family.

I’m not that important. 

Why should I try? There are people better than me.

I’m not good enough. 

Have you ever heard this type of stuff in your head?

I know I HAVE.

What the hell is success anyway? Is it a number? Is it a dollar amount? Is it how  many friends you have? Everyone’s view of success varies.

I’ve had times where I got broadsided about the way I did my gifting. It knocked me back, discouraged me, and made me want to give it all up. But, it’s amazing how ONE person can get you back on your feet.

one touch

YOUR SEEDS ARE VALUABLE.

Does every seed grow? No. Does everything work out 100% perfect? No. But, the more seeds you get out there, the more you have impact on the lives around you.

3 Tips for Success

TIP 1.

Get out there

No matter how little it seems, spread those beautiful seeds of love to all you meet. Write that book. Paint that painting. Dance that dance. Bake that pie. All of it matters.

TIP 2.

Trust

We have NO clue what our tiny seed could do. I’ve had people come up to me and tell me how impacting my Facebook post was on their life–and I thought it was pointless.

TIP 3.

Receive

I know these are super simple tips, but honestly, if you can get this, you’ll feel inspired. Open your arms, your heart, and your soul and just say, “I receive.”

Here’s a quote from my book: Your Voice Your Choice

No dream is ever dead. No gift is ever without breath. No voice is ever without sound. Sometimes all it takes is a little light to get it going again.
