Projection

Projection is a defense mechanism where someone denies their faults and attributes them to others. They accuse you of doing things that they themselves are doing. It often involves blame-shifting and shaming. When someone projects, blame-shifts, or shames you, there is a temptation to explain yourself, defend yourself, or prove your point. If you get … Read More

Safe People

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

Years ago, a wise teacher told me “not everybody is safe.” I tend to trust people too easily and too soon. In the past, I’ve handed over my power to people who are not safe or trustworthy. Unfortunately, I have repeated this lesson over and over again. Being able to trust realistically and to discern … Read More

On November 17, 2003, I had a dream. In the dream, John Wimber’s secretary called me and said John was coming on the same … Read More

Recently, someone I know sent me a link to order her new book about the rise and fall of Todd Bentley (a well-known evangelist.) She is a therapist and I believe her heart in writing the book is to protect victims and to start a conversation about the “cover up” happening in the Protestant Church … Read More

Ask for the Ancient Paths

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

In Jeremiah 6:16, it says to ask for the ANCIENT PATHS in order to find REST for your souls. That verse concludes with “But you said, We will not walk in it.” The “ancient paths” can include herbs, meditation, essential oils, crystals and gemstones, sound healing, etc. I have observed that many Christians are fearful … Read More

Multi-generational Approach to Healing

Studies have shown that traumatic memories can be passed down through generations. A scientific experiment on rats showed that a traumatic event could affect the DNA in sperm and alter the brains and behavior of subsequent generations. The experiences of a parent, even before conceiving, can influence the nervous system and the brains of subsequent … Read More

Overlooking Offenses

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing, Prophetic Words

Years ago, Bob Jones prophesied about “beauty and unity” in the Pacific Northwest and how unity was necessary if we were going to experience healings and creative miracles. His prophetic word also came with a warning. He saw “cyclone fences,” and they represented “offenses.” He saw this was the strategy to stop the move of … Read More

THE MYSTERY OF THE SNOW

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing, Prophetic Words, Quantum

God often speaks through parabolic signs. The sign can speak a message if we have ears to hear and eyes to see. And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. (Exodus 4:8) … Read More
