February is Parental Alienation Awareness Month

Parental Alienation (PA) is a term used to describe a child’s unjustified campaign of denigration against one parent. It is a form of psychological abuse that occurs when one parent manipulates and brainwashes a child into believing the other parent is bad, evil, or worthless. PA can have a devastating impact on both the targeted parent and the child.

PA is not a recognized mental disorder, but it is a recognized form of emotional abuse. It can occur in any type of family, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation. However, it is most commonly seen in families who are going through a divorce or separation. In these cases, one parent may use the child as a pawn in the ongoing conflict between the parents, turning the child against the other parent.

Symptoms of PA can vary depending on the child’s age, but some common signs include:

  • Refusing to visit or talk to the targeted parent
  • Making negative or derogatory comments about the targeted parent
  • Expressing fear or anger towards the targeted parent without any justifiable reason
  • Displaying a sudden and drastic change in behavior towards the targeted parent
  • Believing and repeating lies or false accusations about the targeted parent

PA is a complex issue and it is not always easy to identify. The child may not even be aware that they are being manipulated and brainwashed. They may genuinely believe that the targeted parent is a bad person. It is important to remember that the child is not at fault in these situations, they are being used as a tool by the abusive parent.

The impact of PA on the targeted parent can be devastating. They may feel rejected, hurt, and powerless. They may also feel guilty, as if they have done something wrong to cause the child to turn against them. In some cases, the targeted parent may even experience depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues as a result of the abuse.

The impact on the child can also be severe. They may feel confused, guilty, and torn between their parents. They may also experience emotional and behavioral problems, such as anxiety, depression, and acting out. In some cases, the child may even develop trust issues and have difficulty forming healthy relationships in the future.

It is important to understand that PA is not the fault of the targeted parent, and they are not responsible for the child’s behavior. The abusive parent is the one who is responsible for the child’s behavior, and they are the ones who need to be held accountable.

There are several ways to address PA and help the child, the targeted parent, and the family as a whole. One effective way is through therapy. A therapist can work with the child, the targeted parent, and the abusive parent to help them understand and cope with the situation. They can also help the child and the targeted parent to rebuild their relationship.

Another effective way is through the involvement of a neutral third party, such as a mediator or a guardian ad litem. These professionals can help to facilitate communication between the parents and can also help to identify and address any issues of PA.

It is also important to involve the legal system in cases of PA. The abusive parent can be held accountable for their actions and may face legal consequences, such as losing custody or visitation rights. However, it should be noted that legal intervention should not be the first step and should only be done in cases where therapy and other methods have failed.

In conclusion, Parental Alienation is a form of emotional abuse that can have a devastating impact on both the targeted parent and the child. It is important to recognize the signs of PA and to take action to help the child, the targeted parent, and the family as

Parental Alienation is a form of emotional abuse that can have a devastating impact on both the targeted parent and the child. It is important to recognize the signs of PA and to take action to help the child, the targeted parent, and the family as a whole. This can include seeking therapy, involving a neutral third party, and in severe cases, involving the legal system. It is crucial to understand that PA is not the fault of the targeted parent, and they are not responsible for the child’s behavior. The abusive parent is the one who is responsible and should be held accountable for their actions. It is important to remember that PA is a complex issue and that early intervention is key to preventing further harm to the child and the targeted parent.

Using children as pawns in the midst of a divorce is a cruel and inhumane act. It is important for parents to remember that children are not tools for manipulation and deceit. Instead, they should be shown love and support during this difficult time. By prioritizing their children’s well-being and working towards healing, parents can help to mitigate the negative effects of a divorce and ensure that their children grow up to be healthy and well-adjusted adults.

Help us Reach the Tribes of Peru on the Amazon River with a Christian Outreach Mission Trip to Deliver Quechuan Bibles

“Peru Christian Outreach Mission Trip Fundraiser” is an original digital painted photo art collection by Brian Cimins taken during his SpiritQuest trips between 2011-2013 to Iquitos, Peru. There are Limited Edition 2 of 2s and one-of-a-kind pieces of art donated to “Quechuan Bible Outreach Mission 2023” available for preview and support at: https://opensea.io/collection/perumission

Story behind the Photo: Photo taken on December 5, 2011 at Bora Village on Rio Momon in Iquitos, Peru of one of the future tribal leaders whom I befriended while visiting their welcoming celebration. We were served Amazon River fish on huge banana leaves and danced with them for hours plus enjoyed blow darts and other fun games with the kids and young adults within the camp.

The Digital painting renditions are from original photos as well as hand drawing processing by Brian Cimins donated to “NFTs for a Cause” to fundraise for Peruvian Mission Trips with Quechuan Bibles at http://GalleryHope.com

Warning: SpiritQuest practices sorcery (witchcraft) which is an abomination to God, these photos are only being used to fundraise a Christian Outreach Mission trip to bring Bibles to the long long tribes of the Momon River in Iquitos, Peru in their native language of Quechuan. Our goal is to lead them out of the darkness of sorcery and witchcraft into the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ who can renew minds, restore souls and give us a new heart. “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do” Jesus proclaimed on the cross before saying “it is finished” meaning the wages of sin is death has been paid once for ALL.

All of these pictures have been painted digitally for color correction and beauty to help raise money for a future Amazon River outreach ministry to bring the local tribes copies of the Holy Bible in Quechuan, the native language of less than 2 million people in the world. The urgency to visit in 2023 is because the full Bible translation is near completion and we only have 1-2 more generations to reach them with the gospel in their native language.

BONUS: Unlockable Free Audiobook copy of “Meditate With Me: The Quest to Christ” about the journey from Buddhism to the truth in Christ, which is the prequel to “The True Vine” exposing shamanism and sharing the gospel of Jesus

The Book of Matthew was posted in Quechuan 4 years ago on one of our YouTube channels and has already received 10,000+ views and dozens of heartfelt comments from Peruvian citizens:

Limited Editions: Only 2 of 2 of each print will ever be produced as NFTs to support http://GalleryHope.com #NFTsForACause specifically for Quechuan Bible project and outreach ministry to all of the tribes on the Momon River including the Bora.

The pictures and original art is from both “Ayahuasca” and “Huachuma” retreats and pilgrimages with Howard Lawler, the founder of a plant based medicine retreat on Amazon River (Rio Momon), to the Andes Mountains of Peru.

My friendship with Howard Lawler over the years transitioned from “student healer” to outreach ministry about the truth in Jesus Christ where I encouraged Howard to turn away from sorcery and witchcraft once it became evident what they were practicing. Sadly, Howard passed away in October 2019 and I’m not sure if he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book” – Revelation 22:12-18

Our 2nd book #MeditateWithMe series about the peril of shamanism should be released in Spring or Summer of 2023.

Meditate with me: The True Vine is a book project by Brian Cimins to share his testimony for Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is the second book under the “Meditate with Me” series created to encourage those who’ve been on the wrong path in life to come to know Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Him.

The following testimony and true life experiences were my specific path to Jesus Christ. There are many individual ways to be drawn to Jesus as Lord and Savior who died for the sins of the world and rose again proving He is God. We remember that we’ve all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and that Jesus Christ alone is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and no one goes to the Father but through Him.

Please do not think I believe I am better than anyone else, I was on the path to destruction too before coming to Jesus. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, the wages of sin is death, meaning the payment of sinning against a perfect and Holy God is eternity in a lake of fire. Even one lie, one lustful look at a woman, one blasphemy (using God’s name as a curse word), one time dishonoring your parents, even a small theft of downloading music off the internet, and everything else we might ever tell anyone, God knows everything and even those hidden sins would result in an eternal punishment in a lake of fire without a Savior. That’s the bad news

The Good News is that Jesus Christ came to earth to pay an eternal payment for the penalty of sin, He became the sinless lamb of God to take away the sins of the world, He rose again and ascended to heaven to prepare an eternal place for His in Our Father’s House.

Be reminded that Lucifer’s sin against God was pride too, please know I deeply care about your immortal soul, please repent of your sin and trust in Christ alone for salvation for life is a vapor, our souls are immortal and eternity is truly, truly forever and we will ALL face God when we die, He is either eternal Lord and Savior or eternal Judge.

Jesus is the only One who can forgive our sins and reconcile us for the penalty (or wages) of sin is death. He can restore our souls, renew our minds and give us a new heart, but most importantly He offers us a gift of grace, something we cannot earn, for we are saved by His grace through faith alone, not by works for God knew we would boast.

We are given eternal life with Him in heaven, based alone on our faith in Him and His work (death and resurrection) on the cross. When Jesus proclaimed, “it is finished”, He was proclaiming the penalty of sin was paid, we just need to Repent of sin (pride) and Trust in Him alone for salvation for we have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.” – John 14:6-11 (King James Version).

For far too long, I was so very embarrassed and afraid to share these stories because of the alluring nature of shamanism which is secretly, in fact, was sorcery and witchcraft, strictly forbidden by God and all throughout the Bible. But I realized God brought me there to testify to the world that Jesus Christ is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and truly can restore our soul, renew our minds and give us a new heart.

These modern day “wizards of Oz” prey on those suffering with mental illness, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, life trauma and even traumatic brain injuries or addictions.

All of the glory goes to God, for He restores my soul, certainly not any “ancient plants” or sorcery or witchcraft or secret society with hidden knowledge in the middle of the jungle, Mountains, Pyramids of the world or even Masonic temples around the world.

Sadly, appealing to the flesh, the devil can promise physical healing but “what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul”, for the true healer is Jesus prophesied in the Book of Isaiah 900 years before Jesus walked on earth, The Word, the lamb of God to take away the sins of the world dwelt among us said, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

This testimony is to shine light of Jesus Christ on the darkness of what the enemy falsely offers to some of the sickest and most indefensible humans on earth, the mentally ill, addicted, trauma and brain damaged become the shaman’s prey, ultimately for some sort of sacrifice to their father, the devil.

If you are suffering or feel all alone, depressed, please watch this:

Do not seek counsel or “healing” from shamans, sorcerers, witches or any occult memberships or secret societies. Anything done in darkness will be brought to the light, if you know anyone still practicing sorcery and witchcraft, share with them some of the scriptures mentioned throughout this book, write them down, read the full chapter and book around each verse you see to know the truth as well.

These “shamanic journeys” aren’t easy stories or memories to share, please know I share them as a stark warning against seeking council with shamanism, necromancers (speaking to the dead) or with any jungle medicine witch doctors if you are truly sick, mentally or physically. I plead with all of you reading to desperately repent of sin (pride first) and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation for we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory, we all need a savior in Jesus.

December 1, 2019 – Wayne, New Jersey – Music Label, Meditation Orchestra is excited to release it’s 17th album with “The Best of Meditate with Me”, a 15-Track audiobook, meditation and musical album by Brian Cimins including a compilation of Meditation based Audiobooks, Guided Meditations and Relaxing Music.

Meditate With Me is a family parable book series and Christian outreach campaign to reach the lost sheep from various remote regions, villages, and far-off lands who are possibly studying false religions, witchcraft, sorcery, and other New Age disinformation around the world.

First Peter 5:8 reads, “Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Pastor Andrew Rappaport of Striving for Eternity Ministries said it best: “Evil is the absence of good, and good is defined by the nature of God.”

This book series will teach children the attributes of God, basic apologetics, and ultimately how to put our full faith in Jesus, how to pray and meditate day and night, how to put on the full armor of God, and other Bible-based life skill lessons to support their lifelong faith-building efforts to face the enemy with Christ alone to glorify God through our lives.

In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us to reach all people in all nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life, the only way to the Father, the only way to heaven, and in many countries Christians are being persecuted and blocked from sharing the Gospel.

The Quest to Christ is the first edition of the series and joins two siblings raised Buddhist, Yui and Mei, escaping from Chinese-invaded Tibet. They face death-defying winter storms in the mountains of India in a tribulation-filled journey to find God, meet a wonderful missionary, conquer their fears, and learn about salvation through Jesus Christ. They learn we are saved by his grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, not because of our works. The series also teaches how to ask God for forgiveness, how to repent or turn away from sin, and how to pray in Jesus’ name as well as how to accurately practice Bible-based Christian meditation day and night.

A Parable of Forgiveness: Brewing and Drinking Acid and Steeping in Resentment Every Day Destroys Us and our Relationship with Jesus Christ by Brian Cimins

Forgiveness-Quote-Parable-Drink-Acid-or-Grace-From-Jesus“For me, lack of forgiveness, anger and resentment were my greatest addictions. It was like brewing and drinking a cup of acid every day. I was addicted to the pain and my mind constantly reminded me I was thirsty for it every angst filled day. The enemy, the Devil who deceives the whole world, even appears as an angel of light and whispers,
“Remember what he or she did to you?” or “remember all those who stole money or ideas from you?” or “remember those who let you down and hurt you? Drink the acid.” The acid started destroying me, figuratively speaking, it wore away my lips, my tongue, my throat, it destroyed my stomach and sweat out my pores burning my skin. Lack of forgiveness was my TRUE addiction and when I physically, emotionally and spiritually destroyed myself with lack of forgiveness and I could no longer drink the painful acid, then anger, resentment, sadness and revenge set in, new BROAD paths to future destruction. I would, figuratively speaking, verbally throw acid on those who harmed me or closest to me, every time I suffered or was accused of the past. Father God, brothers and sisters, beloved ones, please forgive my transgressions, my sins of the past. I was blind and now I see. Jesus showed me how much He loved me. He called my name and I learned who He was and He revealed to me how He forgave the ones who killed Him while hanging on the cross said, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do”. How could I not forgive others with all He did for us? Jesus is the only one who can truly heal our broken hearts and souls, He taught us ultimate forgiveness and give us eternal life with Him. We are saved by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ…”He restores my soul”. Please put down the cup of acid, remember He forgave ALL on the Cross, even while we were still sinners giving us eternal life to those who simply believed in Him. Please put down your cup, “go and sin no more”, don’t brew more anger, don’t steep resentment tea, remember what He did for us and forgive someone today, even wretched sinners, just like you and just like me.” – Brian J. Cimins of http://YourStrategyCoach.com

I must admit that I am some obscure Author of too many Books including the sequel to “More Was Never Enough” (154,000,000 views and growing on YouTube) but too ashamed or uncomfortable about their content to release them in the Past.

Thank you for bringing me “into the cave” Seth Haines (Author of ‘Coming Clean’) and Mark McVeigh for asking the right question to me to break me out of the shell I’d been in so long. Sometimes, we must admit the divine appointments as the miracles unfold and express the gratitude overflowing from the result of those blessings.

Thank you to my mentors Pastor Andrew Rappaport (the one who brought me to Jesus), Frank Mullis, Dave Gustavson, Ted Voltmer, the brave men of women of ‘More Than Conquerors’, all the amazing people at The Chapel who help others out of the kindness of their hearts, all of those who volunteer to serve others in time of need, thank you to all my brothers and sisters in Christ, thank you and blessings to those who’ve hurt me and a special thanks to my Pastor of Care, Pastor Mike Bethune who’s strength perfected by weakness has been personified before me to be a guiding example.  “Start walking”, he said, “Walk by faith and not by sight”, He said.  Here I am…God Bless you always and forever in your walk with Him or back to Him.

If you do not know Jesus…please let me introduce you to Him:

About the Author

Charles Allen, a well-known United Methodist minister, writer, and broadcaster, signs copies of his book (1961). Allen served as pastor of Grace Methodist Church in Atlanta from 1948 to 1960 and broadcast his sermons on both radio and television.Dr. Charles L. Allen (1913-2005) was the much-loved author of many books, including the bestselling God’s Psychiatry.

Charles Allen was a prominent United Methodist minister who served as pastor of Grace Methodist Church in Atlanta from 1948 to 1960 and as pastor of First United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas, from 1960 to 1983. His columns in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution and the Houston Chronicle, his radio and television ministry, and his numerous books brought him national recognition.
Dr. Charles Livingstone Allen was born in Newborn in 1913, the sixth of eight children, to Lulu Franklin and John Robert Allen. Brought up in a devout Methodist home, he followed his father into the ministry and was educated at Young Harris College (1930-32), Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina (1932-34), and Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta (1933-37). Admitted on a trial basis to the North Georgia Conference in 1933, he was ordained a deacon in 1935 and an elder in 1937. From 1933 to 1948 he served appointments in Douglasville and Thomson, among others. Leila Jane Haynes of Clermont became his wife in 1934. They had three children: Charles, Franklin, and Mary Jane.

The hallmark of Allen’s ministry was “pastoral preaching” in a lucid and transparent style. In 1947 he founded Pulpit Preaching, a homiletical journal. It merged with Pulpit Digest in 1972 to form The New Pulpit Digest (renamed Pulpit Digest in 1978). Allen remained a contributor until 1989. His items, which began in Georgia’s Wesleyan Christian Advocate in 1947, were a prelude to the column he wrote for the Atlanta Journal, beginning in 1949, and for the Atlanta Constitution, beginning in 1952.

Dr. Allen wrote Roads to Radiant Living (1951), his first book, was followed by God’s Psychiatry (1953), which became a best-seller (nearly 2 million copies sold worldwide). The Touch of the Master’s Hand (1956), All Things Are Possible through Prayer (1958), The Miracle of Love (1972), and Meet the Methodists (1986) are other examples of his writings. By 1995 Allen had written or edited more than fifty books, which have sold well over 8 million copies.

Dr. Allen passed away in Houston on August 30, 2005, but his legacy of teachings will live on and guide many suffering souls to Jesus Christ for the healing they seek for many decades to come.

FightExpo Highlight Video World’s First Charity Based MMA, Grappling and Extreme Sports Expo by Brian Cimins – Video by Living Waters and Way Of the Master, Eddie Roman

{HIGHLIGHT VIDEO} Before UFC created #FanExpo, we developed a charity-based event called #FightExpo featuring Grapplers Quest, Amateur Pankration, Pro and Amateur No-Gi and BJJ, #MotoCross, #BMX, and the amazing Make-A-Wish International program we coined called #MeetAFighter – one of the world’s best videographers Eddie Roman of Living Waters / The Way of the Master created this highlight. Amazing memories, making history as a community – thank you again for the support Channing Tatum, Bruce Buffer, Brandon Vera, Diego Sanchez, Cung Le, Gina Carano, Saulo Ribeiro, Kimo Leopoldo and all of the amazing people who supported this event.

My most important role in my life is being a father, role model and leader to my two amazing children, Logan and Kaylee.

I started watching them for 15 hours a day from 7:45 AM until 10:00 PM every day. Initially it was very challenging, because I was breaking the work-at-home workaholic cycle on top of figuring out what to do to add value to their lives.

I needed to “Dad-up” and realize that I needed to not just be in the same room as the kids, but truly be PRESENT in the moment and become more lovingly interactive with them. I realized that pressing play on NetFlix and letting the kids play video games for hours while you type away on the laptop isn’t truly being present with them and they notice.

I missed so much of their life with Grapplers Quest and I decided that I wanted to become a Super Dad.

I remember seeing Jungle Gym founder, Justin Garcia giving some tips and showing fun projects from his amazing Home Schooling Program due out soon (http://MasterChim.com) and I was inspired to set out to fill my new found time with the kids with activities to engage their hearts, minds, soul and spirit.

We started doing arts and crafts, learning Spanish, comic book drawing, practicing nightly meditation, learning the solar system, playing board and card games, star gazing with telescope on clear nights, “Super Hero Training” which is basic exercises with leadership skills and several other Life Skills development programs and several other FUN activities we do together. I even reward their good behavior with Family Inclusive Video Games like Beatles Rock Band nearly every evening – I’ll write about that another blog…all in all, I’m trying to be the Best Dad I can be. I love recommendations for fun things to do – please reply with any ideas.

NOW TO THE PHOTO…

“It’s not coming off!” I exclaimed.

The Red Stained hands in the main picture belong to my beautiful 3-year-old daughter, Kaylee Paige Cimins who slammed down a “Do-A-Dot” marker, breaking the felt tip and causing Red Ink to flow out of the marker. She had been told several times to not slam them down, so when she broke it, she started crying and proceeded to wipe RED INK all over her face too while trying to wipe away tears. She ran into the bathroom where I was giving my son a bath nearly exactly how the picture shows, except she was screaming and crying.

First, I thought she was bleeding and freaked out….who wouldn’t, she was dripping fresh red ink from her hands and face. Once I realized what occurred and that the Red was just Do-A-Dot Marker stained, I tried to clean the ink off. First I tried to clean off her hands with Trader Joe’s Next to Godliness Hand Soap which didn’t remove any ink at all. Unfortunately, then I tried to clean her hands with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Tea Tree Oil which removed only 15-20% of the color stains. AHHHH!!! What will I do???

ENTER MY SOLUTION —- Super Body Care’s Walnut Scrub

photo(3)

My daughter started crying again after Dr. Bronner soap barely did anything – she asked, “Daddy, are my hands going to be red forever?”. I calmed her down and promised her I would get it out.

Finally, I grabbed Cheri Heberling’s Super Body Care Walnut Scrub and within seconds of calmly scrubbing, the color came off…completely. She loves the smell, so she allowed me to gently scrub her face (around her sensitive skin of her eyes) as well, because she had wiped her face while crying her eyes looked like a prize fighter. It easily removed her Do-A-Dot eye makeup too.

Thank you Super Body Care for helping me look like a Super Dad to Kaylee. Check out Super Body Care products at: http://SuperBodyCare.com or purchase the Walnut Scrub directly here: http://superbodycare.com/shop/#!/~/product/category=1870672&id=8057839
