|Retune and Realign Your Heart|
Retune and Realign
by Dr. Paul L. Cox
I had not been sleeping, again! It started gradually on the night of the winter solstice in 2008. By the end of January 2009 I was waking up in the middle of the night and could not go back to sleep. Weeks passed and my fatigue increased. Others were not sleeping either. We were consistently waking up around 1:30 a.m., unable to return to sleep. Then, we all shifted to waking up at 4:00 a.m., then 5:00 a.m., still unable to go back to sleep. I called intercessors and pleaded for the Lord to bring understanding about what was happening.
At the end of February 2009, we had an intern-training week at Aslan's Place in Hesperia, California. While praying for a man who was desperately seeking freedom in his life, the Lord revealed what seemed to be a spiritual stop sign in front of him. I was intrigued when I could not feel it as I moved away from him; it was clearly discernible directly in front of him. Moving my hand toward him, I asked if he felt as if he had been stopped in his forward movement; he immediately said, "Yes!" We prayed for him and asked the Lord to remove the stop sign. I felt we were finished until my daughter, Christy Lisle, reported seeing something evil in front of the man. I assured her that the stop sign was gone, but she was insistent! Humoring her, I put my hand close to his body and, indeed, I felt something like a pair of "spiritual" lungs.
The Lord was leading me on another journey.
The next day we began to pursue what the Lord had shown us. When those with visual spiritual giftings looked at each of us, they began to see that what I had thought were lungs were, in reality, bat wings. As I felt the winds, I realized that these wings were tied to an ungodly spiritual ruler, who seemed to be blowing a trumpet, heralding an ungodly decree against each person's birthright. These ungodly decrees, rooted in idolatry, establish and maintain a stop sign in a person's life causing spiritual blindness and deafness. A trumpet was pointed toward the heart and neck of each individual. It seems that the decree is an inaudible vibration, beyond the range of human perception, with wavelengths that cause discord. The stop sign seems to magnify the vibrations coming from the ungodly ruler.
As we questioned the Lord about this vibration, he said that the vibration releases doubt, so that believers do not walk in faith. Fear is a consequence of this unbelief. It's the kind of fear Luke writes about, "Men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken."
This ungodly vibration also seems to disrupt the normal vibrations of DNA. As I felt the direction of the vibration, I could discern it affecting the right lower ventricle of the heart. I was amazed to find out from a medical doctor later that the blood from that ventricle goes right to the lungs. There is a tie between the disruption of blood flow from that ventricle and sleep apnea. The Lord was connecting the dots!
The Lord then revealed that the generational root enabling the vibration was a lack of love which fostered disunity, especially disunity with a family. We asked the person we were praying for if there was a history of disunity in his family. He replied that it had been a major problem, both in his own life and in his generational line, especially brother against brother. Then the Lord gave us a Scripture, 1 John 4:7-16.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God;
and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
In this the Love of God was manifested toward us,
that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through Him.
In this is love, not that we loved God,
but that He loved us and sent His Son
to be the propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
If we love one another, God abides in us
and His love has been perfected in us.
By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us,
because He has given us of His Spirit.
And we have seen and testify that the Father
has sent His Son as Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God,
God abides in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.
God is love,
and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
As we were talking to each other and hearing from the Lord, Ann Smith from Collingwood, Canada, shared a dream she'd had some months before. Ann suffers with an irregular heartbeat that seriously affects her breathing. Here is Ann's dream:
I was outside a house in Canada and was discerning something very evil. Paul Cox was there. I received a musical key. At this point I became righteously angry. As Paul went into the house, I began to sing; I held one continuous note until all my breath had gone.
It seemed to me as if this musical key, this vibration, was somehow going to be a solution to her healing.
A sudden realization occurred to me. Bats are awake at night! If there are spiritual bats attached to us, then they would be active at night and could disrupt sleep! Perhaps I had found the key to why I was not sleeping.
But, why could I not feel this bat in front on me? The Lord made it clear. We are blinded to what is coming against us. 1 John 2:11 says, "But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes." It all seemed so obvious now. Bats operate in darkness? A sonarlike vibration allows them to navigate at nighttime. Isn't it interesting that we use the term, "blind as a bat"?
I remembered that in Isaiah 34:14, the Hebrew word Lilith is translated as "night creature" in the New King James Version. In tradition, Lilith is said to be the daughter of Dracula and to manifest as a wolf or bat. Lilith does not sleep at night! I have had a sense for a long time that this evil spirit is tied to night terrors.
More insight came the following month. In March 2009, we held two weeks of school in Hesperia, California. A couple of people who are involved in the entertainment industry in Hollywood attended the school. As we discussed the revelation about the bat, many felt that the recent Batman movie, The Dark Knight, was helpful in understanding what the enemy was releasing on the earth through the media. We also realized that key words in Scripture applied to the movie and the prayer: night, fear, blindness, darkness, secret things, light, eye (as that which perceives darkness and light), and heart. At last
"The Prayer to Retune and Realign the Heart" was ready to be written!
After the first intern training in January and getting revelation about the stop sign and the bat, my sleep gradually improved. After writing and praying the prayer during the school in March, my sleep improved greatly. On the very night of the spring equinox, my sleep pattern finally returned to normal. I had not slept well between the winter solstice (the point is the year when the sun is farthest from the celestial equator) until the spring equinox (the point in the year when the sun crosses the celestial equator and days and nights are almost equal in length.
The Lord had revealed the plans of the enemy and once again, he had shown himself to be victorious!

Lord, when our brothers may have sinned against us, I repent because we have taken action based on our suspicions and not checking our facts and not going to you before doing anything.

Lord, remove all identity chips that the enemy has planted in me that I have come into agreement with regarding who I am. I repent for seeking man's approval over your approval and for trying to build my kingdom instead of Your Kingdom. I repent for looking to myself and not keeping my eyes on you. Lord, I ask you to remove pride, selfishness, insecurity, rejection, and fear of rejection so that I can love you and your children wholeheartedly. Lord, break my heart with all that breaks your heart, remove my heart of stone, and give me your heart of flesh.
Father, I repent for limiting you, for limiting all that you desire to do in my life and all that you desire to do through me. I repent for rejecting your dreams as being too grandiose. Lord, reawaken Your visions, and Your dreams in me; reawaken all that You called me to partake in before the foundation of the earth. I choose to call into being that which is not and to partner with You in creation, declaring your purposes and will.
Lord, you have tried my heart. You have visited me in the night. You have found no wickedness in me. I have avoided the ways of the violent. My feet have held fast to your paths. Lord, before you, I am a baby, an infant, trusting in your care. As a babe in arms, I praise You. Your works and Your name are majestic above all the earth. Lord, You establish the universe by Your word, and all creation is Yours, yet You are mindful of man, having made him a little less than God, crowning him in Christ Jesus with glory and honor. Vindicate me, oh Lord, with Your presence. Destroy Your enemies in my life, oh God. Restore Your dominion and victory.
I ask You to break off of me the consequences of negative words and curses that others and I have pronounced over my life. I break all agreements with negative thinking and the lies of the enemy, and I choose to walk in truth.
Lord, I ask You to remove all ungodly spiritual rulers, authorities, and shields that have operated in my life. I ask that You release your godly spiritual rulers, authorities, and shields to operate in my life. I receive Your breastplate of righteousness and your righteous spiritual rulers.
Holy Spirit, I ask You to reveal to me your truth and remove all distorted vision and thinking.
Father, it is through the holy Body and Blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ, that we ask,
and thank you for hearing us.
Because You are faithful to Your Covenant !
