Peace and Light Y’all,
I don’t know if you know or not, but I LOVE the TV series, The Walking Dead! Now, this is almost unheard of for me because I am VERY sensitive to “scary stuff”. As a child, after my dad took my sisters and me to see a scary movie at the drive-in, as he and my mom would often do during the Summer, I always ended up sleeping with my big sister because I was too afraid to sleep alone. So when a friend told me that she liked The Walking Dead shortly after the series premiered and urged me to watch it, my first reaction was not only NO, but “HELLS, NO!” She convinced me to watch the show by saying that the characters and the story line were so interesting that the occasional zombie was no big deal! Convinced to give the show a try, I taped and watched a replay of the first show and have been watching the series ever since.
This season, Season 3, was filled with lots of excitement: the introduction and metamorphosis of the Governor, the debut and development of Tyreese, the deepening of love between Maggie and Glenn, the further fall, rise and fall of Merle Dixon, the acceptance of Michonne into Rick’s group, the death of Andrea and more! WOW! This show is like a soap opera with zombies, no big deal for me, “sensitive” Keva, RIGHT?! WRONG!
The night I watched the Season 3 finale, I could not go to sleep. As I lay in bed, I visualized Milton, the zombie, attempting to bite my toes off and me trying to put Andrea’s pliers through his skull! I tossed and turned for hours fighting with “Zombie Milton” every time I closed my eyes! ”Oh my God!” I thought, ”This is almost as bad as when I was a kid! My big grown self is afraid of a zombie! Really?” I didn’t dare roll over and tell my husband because he would make fun of me! So I fought “Zombie Milton” in silence! As I lay there, scared out of my mind that this zombie was gonna bite me and turn me into a zombie, I tried to talk some sense into myself by saying, “OK Keva, you really need to go to sleep, you have things to do tomorrow! Girl, you know zombies are not real!” My fear was irrational, but it was VERY real! Right after I said that, in fear, I said, “What am I gonna do?!” At that moment, it occurred to me that I needed to call on Archangel Michael, to shield me from the fear that I was experiencing, so I could get some rest.
So, I called on Archangel Micheal. I said, “Archangel Michael, I am so scared that if I go to sleep, this zombie is gonna bite my toes and turn me into a zombie”. By the way, I knew that this could NEVER happen in real life and that it sounded kinda silly, but the fear I was experiencing felt very real to me, so I told Archangel Michael exactly what I was feeling. Archangel Micheal did not pause to pass judgement, he immediately offered me his help saying, “Visualize me cutting all the cords that connect you to these negative energies with my sword while at the same time, visualize with every pass of my sword, my covering you with beautiful protective white light, only allowing higher level energies to pass through my shield!” I did and was able to fall asleep and get some rest!
When I look back at this experience, I am reminded that fear doesn’t have to make sense and often times it does not, but it can feel very real and can be very paralyzing! With knowledge, faith and action, it can be overcome! I do believe that I need to take a break from watching The Walking Dead and am glad that the 3rd season has now come to a close!
I am so thankful for my relationship with God and His Angels. The angels remind me daily that I am not alone and that they are always here to provide me with the support, love and guidance that I need to improve my life, without judgement How beautiful is that?
I hope this blog entry was both entertaining and inspirational to you!
