Bible Verse for Anxiety | My Yoke Is Easy and My Burden Is Light | The Message of Matthew 11:28-30

Can the Bible be used to help us meditate? How can we learn more about the inner meaning of God's Word? Join us as we read Matthew 11:28-30, contemplate this passage together, and find ways to apply these teachings to our life! This is an audio-only version of video-based show, and the podcast may contain references to visuals from the original episode. Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/pQ2j1cJAbQI↓↓↓ More resources below ↓↓↓Bible scripture can be a potent tool for combating anxiety and fear, and can become a significant part of any meditative or spiritual practice. In this episode, we dive deep into Matthew 11:28-30, exploring how a Bible verse can help us with anxiety, worry, and fear. Bible meditation can help us cultivate mindfulness, love for the neighbor, ourselves, and for the Lord; and foster peace in our hearts and minds. The words of Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew and throughout Scripture remind us that the Lord wants to help us, and that when we live from love instead of fear, our burden is lighter, our yoke is easy, and we will find rest.

What It’s Like to Die and Come Back | Help for Fear of Death Anxiety: You Don't Have to Fear Death

Understanding the details of the dying process and what happens after death can help when struggling with fear of death anxiety. We explore what it's like to die and what heaven is like. This is an audio-only version of video-based show, and the podcast may contain references to visuals from the original episode. Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/J0vjvAh_5DM↓↓↓ More resources below ↓↓↓Death anxiety and fear of dying are common experiences. They are real, but not true, because death is simply a transition from one world to another; it is when our spirit (that is already alive in us now) is freed from the physical body and continues to live a fully sensory life in the spiritual world. We have spiritual senses, and so after death we continue to see, hear, smell, taste, and touch, think, love and grow, only what we are sensing and experiencing is spiritual reality rather than physical reality. Angels welcome us immediately after we die and care and protect us through the transition.To learn more about what happens immediately after we die, check out this summary! https://www.offthelefteye.com/life-after-death/what-happens-after-you-die/★☆★COME TO THE OFF THE LEFT EYE EXPERIENCE - JULY 23-25, 2021!★☆★Click here to register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-off-the-left-eye-experience-2021-becoming-an-angel-registration-151549046277The Off The Left Eye Experience 2021: Becoming an Angel will be an immersive, multi-day, fully online exploration of the ways in which we transform our inner selves.

How to Know If Your Guardian Angel is Talking to You | 5 Ways Angels Speak to Humans | + Meditation

The ways angels speak to humans can be confusing. Will angels appear to us? Or can we literally hear them? Understanding the mechanism of our angel communication makes it clear. This is an audio-only version of video-based show, and the podcast may contain references to visuals from the original episode. Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/7RbFpP3T-ig↓↓↓ Explore Our Angel Study Guide↓↓↓Direct link for the Guardian Angel Meditation: https://www.offthelefteye.com/guardian-angel-meditation/To explore who Emanuel Swedenborg was: https://www.swedenborg.com/emanuel-swedenborg/★☆★ANGEL STUDY GUIDE★☆★OUR CONNECTION TO ANGELS IS CONSTANT:"People have no idea whatever that the Lord governs them through angels and spirits, or that at least two spirits and two angels accompany each of them. The spirits create a link with the world of spirits, and the angels create one with heaven. We cannot possibly live without a channel of communication open to the world of spirits through spirits and to heaven through angels (and in this way to the Lord through heaven). Our life depends totally on such a connection. If the spirits and angels withdrew from us, we would be destroyed in a second."—Secrets of Heaven 50HOW ANGELS ARE CONNECTED TO US:"The Lord provides that spirits influence our thoughts and wishes but that angels influence our ultimate goals, and through our goals, the consequences that result. Angels also flow through good spirits into the good deeds we do and the religious truth we believe, using these to lead us away from evil and falsity as much as possible. Their influence is silent, and imperceptible to us, but even though it is secret, it works."—Secrets of Heaven 5854:1"The angels with us are the Lord's, and therefore what they govern inside us are our purposes. When they govern these, they also govern our thoughts and deeds, because all our thoughts and deeds are included in our purposes."—Secrets of Heaven 1317WHAT ANGELS DO TO PROTECT US:"Angels are always carefully watching evil spirits’ and demons’ attempts and efforts with us. So far as we let them, they turn evil into good or at least into something better or at least into something less bad."—Secrets of Heaven 5980"The angels through whom the Lord leads and protects us are near our head. Their job is to inspire neighborly love and faith. They also watch the direction our pleasures take, taming them and bending them toward good so far as our freedom allows them to. They are not permitted to act violently, breaking our cravings and our assumptions, but must proceed gently. Another function they have is to control the evil spirits from hell, and they do it in countless ways, of which I may mention only this one: When evil spirits flood us with evil and falsity, angels instill truth and goodness. Even if we do not accept the truth and goodness, they use it to at least temper the evil and falsity. Hellish spirits constantly attack us, and angels protect us. That is the way of things. Most of all, angels regulate our emotions, since these constitute our life and our freedom. Angels watch to see whether hells that were not open before open up and exert an influence on us, which happens when we take to some new evil. So far as we allow, angels shut off these hells and remove any spirits who try to emerge from them. They also dissipate any strange new influences that have a bad effect. Above all, angels call on the goodness and truth we harbor and use it to block the evil and falsity stirred up by evil spirits. We stand in the middle and discern neither the evil nor the good. Being in the middle, we are free to turn toward one or the other. These are the kinds of ways angels from the Lord lead and safeguard us, which they do every moment and every fraction of a moment. If they stopped for only a second, we would plunge headlong into evil from which we could never again be led away.In doing this work, angels are motivated by love they receive from the Lord."—Secrets of Heaven 5992OUR CONNECTION TO ANGELS IS A CONNECTION TO GOD:"The Lord talks to every individual, because anything good or true that a person wills or thinks comes from the Lord. We each have at least two evil spirits and two angels with us. The evil spirits stir up our evils, but the angels inspire goodness and truth. Everything good or true that the angels inspire in us is the Lord's, so the Lord is constantly talking to us. He talks very differently, though, to one person than to another."—Secrets of Heaven 904WHERE ANGEL POWER COMES FROM. ANGELS HAVE SURRENDERED THEIR WILLS ENTIRELY TO GOD:"It does need to be known, though, that angels have absolutely no power on their own, but that all the power they have comes from the Lord. Further, they are powers to the extent that they recognize this fact. Any of them who believe that their power comes from themselves immediately become so weak that they cannot resist even a single evil spirit. This is why angels take absolutely no credit to themselves and turn down any praise or admiration for anything they have done, but attribute it all to the Lord."—Heaven and Hell 230

The Meaning of the Psalms | The Lord Will Take Care of Me | Psalm 27 | Bible Verse for Worry

Every Bible verse has deep symbolic spiritual meaning, and in this video we harvest the spiritual wisdom encoded in Psalm 27 about how the Lord cares for us and protects us, and leads us. This is an audio-only version of video-based show, and the podcast may contain references to visuals from the original episode. Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/3EYOfztoEY0↓↓↓ More resources below ↓↓↓We all share the experience of feeling worry and fear, but God is with us to take care of us and protect us. It is easy to lose sight of this truth, but the Bible, and especially the Psalms, can remind us. When we read, "The Lord is my light and my salvation," we can be reminded of the gospel that God rescues us from hellish thoughts and feelings and leads us to guiding truth. We are protected during spiritual attacks. Genuine Christianity is one that recognizes the inner work necessary for spiritual growth. Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is within you," (Luke 17:21) and " take up [your] cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23). True worship is when we "cease to do evil and learn to do good" (Isaiah 1:16-17), and the meaning of Psalm 27 can give us essential nourishment along the journey. ★☆★COME TO THE OFF THE LEFT EYE EXPERIENCE - JULY 23-25, 2021!★☆★Click here to register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-off-the-left-eye-experience-2021-becoming-an-angel-registration-151549046277The Off The Left Eye Experience 2021: Becoming an Angel will be an immersive, multi-day, fully online exploration of the ways in which we transform our inner selves.

Why Didn't Being Spiritual Get Rid of My Depression? - Chasing Swedenborg

Curtis explores how the spiritual and physical sides of life both play a part in our overall mental health and how taking antidepressants can be useful on the spiritual path.

Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/yUb_BqSr9wM↓↓↓ FREE e-book downloads and more below ↓↓↓It can seem hard to reconcile spirituality and depression. "Shouldn't being spiritual keep me from being depressed?" But that's not the case. We are spiritual and physical beings and having depression is not a statement on whether or not you are spiritual.

Chris spent much of his life steeped in various faith traditions and cultures. Growing up, he experienced both Judaism and Protestantism within his family, and as a young adult was influenced by the spiritual direction of Catholicism. After Chris began his professional career he was led to Swedenborg, and found his writings to be revolutionary—so much so that he felt called to enter seminary to align his heart and mind more deeply with Swedenborg's work. During his time at Bryn Athyn College, Chris was asked to help support offTheLeftEye as a YouTube moderator and he found himself instantly at home providing spiritual support for the online community. It was this experience that led Chris to decide to transition from his third year of seminary to a full-time role with offTheLeftEye. Chris now enjoys leveraging his technical skills to help create meaningful pathways for spirituality to flourish in the world.★☆★REACH OUT★☆★Want to be a featured guest on our show or have an offTheLeftEye team member appear on your show Contact us through the About tab/section of this channel.

Now, Curtis is applying his education and desire to help others find peace through Swedenborg’s insights by producing and hosting this weekly webcast.Chelsea Odhner is a production manager and scriptwriter for offTheLeftEye. A lifelong Swedenborgian, Chelsea's interest in Swedenborg's spiritual work intensified in her early twenties when she realized she wanted to make conscious changes in her life and behaviors. When paired with her study of yoga practice and philosophy, Chelsea found Swedenborg’s worldview connected all the spokes of different faiths and philosophical perspectives that she values. Initially interested in pursuing a career in integrative medicine, her passion for poetry, writing, and music led her to focus on serving the spiritual side of health and well-being.Chara Daum is a Latin consultant for the New Century Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg translation series. Her involvement with Swedenborg's Latin began with trying to decipher his handwritten manuscripts of Spiritual Experiences during college, and the mission has followed her in one form or another ever since. Chara has worked on translating fifteen out of Swedenborg's nineteen published theological titles (including the fifteen-volume Secrets of Heaven), and a few of his unpublished works as well. This work has been a source of abundant blessings for Chara, from pondering uplifting spiritual ideas to collaborating with brilliant and wonderful colleagues.Chris Dunn is a community manager for offTheLeftEye. Chris spent much of his life steeped in various faith traditions and cultures. Growing up, he experienced both Judaism and Protestantism within his family, and as a young adult was influenced by the spiritual direction of Catholicism. After Chris began his professional career he was led to Swedenborg, and found his writings to be revolutionary—so much so that he felt called to enter seminary to align his heart and mind more deeply with Swedenborg's work. During his time at Bryn Athyn College, Chris was asked to help support offTheLeftEye as a YouTube moderator and he found himself instantly at home providing spiritual support for the online community. It was this experience that led Chris to decide to transition from his third year of seminary to a full-time role with offTheLeftEye. Chris now enjoys leveraging his technical skills to help create meaningful pathways for spirituality to flourish in the world.★☆★REACH OUT★☆★Want to be a featured guest on our show or have an offTheLeftEye team member appear on your show Contact us through the About tab/section of this channel.

While obtaining his degree in communication studies from Oakland University, Curtis experienced an internal battle with depression that led him to question God and his lifelong interest in Swedenborgian theology. After a period of intense suffering, he recovered from his depression with the help of modern medicine, therapy, and a return to the spiritually uplifting messages he found in Swedenborg’s writings. Now, Curtis is applying his education and desire to help others find peace through Swedenborg’s insights by producing and hosting this weekly webcast. Rev. Dr. Jonathan S. Rose is the series editor of the New Century Edition, an ongoing project that incorporates the latest scholarship to produce a modern, accessible translation of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological works. Holder of a B.A. and a M.Div. in religion and a M.A. and a Ph.D. in Latin, he has worked for years in the study of Neo-Latin and in Swedenborgian research. He was both chaplain and a tenured professor of religion and sacred languages at Bryn Athyn College before taking on his current position with the Swedenborg Foundation. Karin Childs attended Swedenborgian schools from preschool through college. While raising five children with her husband, Jon, she applied her love of the Bible and Swedenborg's writings to volunteer work creating Sunday school programs and church pageants. Concepts from Swedenborg's works were crucial to Karin in dealing with the death of their oldest daughter. For 17 years, she and Jon ran a small publishing company to produce Swedenborgian books, including three novels that Karin wrote and books addressing loss and grief. She feels blessed to have been asked by her son Curtis and the Swedenborg Foundation to help respond to a growing audience and write shows. Chelsea Odhner is the Production Manager for offTheLeftEye and a writer for Swedenborg & Life. A lifelong Swedenborgian, Chelsea’s self-study of Swedenborg began in her early twenties when she was determined to make changes in her life and behaviors. Alongside a deep study of yoga practice and philosophy, Chelsea has found Swedenborg’s worldview to be the best hub to connect all the spokes of different faiths and philosophical perspectives that she values. Initially interested in pursuing a career in integrative medicine, her path has led her to focus on serving the spiritual side of health and well-being. ★☆★REACH OUT★☆★ Want to be a featured guest on our show or have an offTheLeftEye team member appear on your show?
