What the dickens is “frisson?” …I was hoping to get your attention and this word popped into my head as a means to do so. Frisson is French and my feeble attempt at expressing how to pronounce it is “free – sown” or perhaps freesoh’n (more or less) if you try saying the latter through your nose, someone might mistake you for being French-Canadian or, to draw anger from a wider geographic area, perhaps Cajun (?).

Frankly, I’ve wanted to use frisson for about ten years, just because I thought it might show a little “class.” Ever heard of making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear? Yeah, Cullen showing a little class is a bit like that. Someone, surely, will come to my defense, right? …DON’T! This is ridiculous; frisson is not about me; tasteless, classless or otherwise. Frisson basically refers to a sudden burst of excitement of a different dimension than normally experienced. Well, at least that is how I want to use it!

In my most recent article, Replacing the Junk in the Sub-Conscious, I promised that the next one, some form or another of The 21 Day Challenge to Powerful Faith …would be a “doozy” and I’ve had several requests from all over the world for a copy which I dutifully sent.

“Reprogramming the subconscious mind” is a subject which has touched a global nerve; and in going back to SPIRIT with my usual “access question” …what now – has indeed provided me with an added frisson! For my editor, I am admitting that the foregoing sentence is redundant. The 21 Day Challenge to Powerful Faith, surely provides one vehicle for reprogramming the subconscious!

Look at this excerpt from an e-mail from Alaska:

“Brad, there is nothing ho-hum about the 21 day challenge. I think you guys should post the whole series again or even write a book about it. I’ve been reading your stuff for over ten years – how did I miss this! I’ll tell you how, I never listened to the accompanying podcasts before and it just never soaked in. This is better than Treasure Chest, Super Computer, Being Jesus (which, to me, is your best ever) all combined. I am being overwhelmed and breaking through as never before. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” [end of excerpt]

Sounds like he had an added frisson as well, right? Well, I confess I sent off about twenty-five copies of the first article in the series to meet the requests, without reading it; and on a few I added the note “don’t forget to listen to the podcast” (the phone interviews Ryan does of me that he records and posts) without listening. After receiving the above referenced e-mail about an hour ago was when I asked “What now?”

“Listen to them.”

I read the first two and listened to the first two – and was totally excited. “But Daddy/Mommy,” I argued, “I’ve been ranting and raving about not storing up manna — and this stuff is two years old! So I’ve spent the last several minutes knocking, seeking and demanding clarity …REPUBLISH – so away we go… here’s the first:

Fortress for a Citizen Ageless

“Whatever it takes” is the operative term …and, in other words, 21 days is purely symbolic. Traditionally, the number 21 is the three-fold 7, an equation which signifies a divine multiplication of perfection and thus spiritual completeness.

If twenty-one is approached legalistically, that which is truly important gets lost in a systemic maze. Burn this into your mind: Whatever it takes, not stopping short. Simplicity is just that: simply whatever it takes; not Stopping Short (Going On UNTIL) these, then, are the essence of the 21 day challenge. This is what is important: Continuing on UNTIL citizenship in the kingdom, the country called Faith, is accomplished. Twenty-one days may either be only a good start … or it may be twenty days, twenty-three hours, fifty-nine minutes and fifty-nine seconds longer than necessary to accomplish.

Having a breakthrough into I AM consciousness, what we will refer to here as the connection is what is important. Getting permanently connected to and with I AM transcends (goes beyond) numbers or their supposed significance. As a citizen of the country called Faith you are automatically chosen to call others into the equality of citizenship.

There is only one Leader, one Teacher, one PERFECT-PARENT, and SPIRIT-SOURCE of the country called Faith. You may refer to the SOURCE as “Her” … “He” or “It,” there is no significance to gender here in the country called Faith. There is no male or female in this kingdom …it is purely spiritual and, therefore, no humanly contrived concepts can possibly encompass the meaning or bring intellectual understanding about this country called Faith.×199.jpg

Are you a Citizen yet?

Being connected to and with I AM means citizenship; who or what is I AM begins in Jewish history and the significance gets lost immediately if ethnicity or anti-ethnicity becomes a focus.

Suffice it to say, Moses heard a voice which emanated from a burning bush and who/which gave him instructions …part of which have been missed by those who insist on calling I AM Her-Him-It or by whatever name or gender. Moses was told to instruct the children of Israel to memorialize, that is, to remember forever the name I AM Who I AM or, as some scholars point out, “I AM whatever I will be,” is a more accurate translation and we get lost in yet one more attempt to define the indefinable. Supplanting the term with the English word “God” only complicates things further.

The 21 day challenge is a call to citizenship …we are chosen to call you, but only the one SOURCE, the I AM, can certify whether you have achieved citizenship and only you and the SOURCE know the basis of your citizenship.

If your desire is to walk in fellowship with others in this country called Faith then, as far as we’re concerned, you have already been invited by the SOURCE to be with us as fellow citizens, with full equality and we put no further restrictions on you. To what extent you may want to affiliate closely with us is strictly up to you.

We have been given parameters of entitlement to walk with us in equality, which have nothing to do with certification, by the SOURCE, of your ultimate citizenship. The first step is whether you feel called to accept the 21 day challenge. Before you can do that, of course, you will have to find out of just what, exactly, the 21 day challenge consists.

Send an e-mail to Brad or Ryan to get the particulars. In Freedom, Brad
