  1. We NEED to be honest.
    You truly need that 1 go to person who you can be totally honest with.
    Great information. Thank you.

  2. 😓 Awe mann. This was pretty cool. I love how they used the example of Gethsemane and Elijah. Real people in acknowledging their real circumstances.
    And the way Christians use the Bible. Just Wow! 😱

  3. This is excellent! As a person who's mind/thought patterns often get the best of me, I get this totally.

  4. Saying that we are being attacked by the devil isn't wrong or a cop out, it's the truth. The devil knows our weaknesses but we know the power of God, and God has given us a free will. We are always going to have the free will to chose what the devil is pandering to us, or, what God wants for us. It's not the devils fault when we actively choose him over God but he is attacking always. We need to go to Gods word to have the discernment over the situation at hand.

  5. I like the way she talks

    A lot of truth in the way she speaks about religion.

    Elevation has been turning religious beliefs around, at least for me the church as a whole has done that for me personally. Keep up the great work I love what y’all do.

    Yes I’m from Texas 😁

  6. God gave the doctors the wisdom to do their work so it's ignorant for children of God to think that seeking medical assistance is against our ideologies so please know that sometimes our healing comes from getting some counselling or therapy.

  7. Excellence through and through. Thank you Pastor Furtick for your beautiful example. Transparency, asking questions and getting help when and where it's needed is the answer to so many issues of life. Just a beautiful example. May your heart be safe and renewed beyond what you ask and think.

  8. THIS IS SO REVELATORY!!! I feel the need to share this with the world nonbelievers and believers of life cause I feel like starting with your mind and bringing about healthy thoughts and going WITH h nature of our brains and minds and better understanding it is LITERALLY THE KEY TO TRANSFORMATION!! Ugh I’m sorry y’all but this video is PRICELESS! HALLELUJAH!

  9. AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is a really great video…and IT DOES CONNECT WITH KJVB!!!!!!!!!!! AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!! Thank you, and God bless you, in JESUS NAME!!!! AMEN!

  10. I have a hard time with knowing when it is a attack from satan vs when it is myself creating my own waves.

  11. This is amazing. First I want to say that I'm also out the box. I am always searching to understand. I don't lean on one person's cute. I always question what I hear. Specifically I been struggling with my feelings. I recently learned I have had anxiety. God had been teaching me something about it and how to lean to depend on him. I recently have been having s hard time with what she said using scripture and it does nothing. It makes so much sense why it doesn't work. It's not a band-aid. This has given me do much relief. I'm so grateful that Steve is also s person that wants to learn and transparent. That is rare. I have been to so many churches I have yet to meet s pastor that isn't controlling and shallow and shares their struggles and sells knowledge open to learn more. Until…. Steve!!!! I was ready to give up on Church.

  12. I have so many verses that was popping up to me as I listen to Dr Caroline explaining how our mind works.. wow I'm mind blown.

  13. Love this pastor and love her. This has really helped me refocus my mind and work on rewiring it from alot of trauma.

  14. Pastor Furtick you can't imagine what I've been going through but what you said about am or will let you down is how I feel all the time and I'm also a giant nerd extremely intrigued by epigenetics and the brain so thank you so much for finding this woman and doing this with her I'm gonna listen to all her stuff so I can get my mind back and be better for God, my kids, and myself (this is my prayer) God bless you

  15. yeah… i like celine dion…. but… I like her more : )… I smell my brain… joke… but seriously like what Mr. Jayson Gupta said in his program… "what we think is WHAT WE ARE…

  16. I love this video and thank you for it…just a little suggestion…maybe stop moving the camera to the right and to the left so much. It is too tiring and distracting. Otherwise, I appreciate this content and thank you for making it available for free!

  17. PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE….. if you truly want to detox your mind…. Change of diet and fasting while taking herbs as well. This is a gift the Lord has given me and I’m passing it on to anyone who wants it. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, BODY, AND MIND.

  18. Gotta pause here at the 27:06 mark and respond to something that I just heard. No, not all of us have that person we can open up to and voice out loud our innermost thoughts. I wish it was different but it's not. I'm as alone as I've ever been. The Holy Spirit lives within me but so far He has chosen to not provide me with another physical person to confide in and frankly He's got bigger fish to fry than dealing with a worm like me.

  19. Wawww pastor Steven go very bold here n he was not afraid at all coz he really wanted to change the things that bothered him, he really was taking advantage of her presence to change a lot in himself and it is making me feel better knowing it’s not bad to admit a lot of me so that I will change

  20. Oh I love this. There were ( are) so many times that as I Christian I tried to walk the gentle, meek , watch what you say to others, but sometimes I feel like a hypocrite to myself because I do have anger sometimes other people issues is a downer for me while I'm trying to encourage others it messing up my mojo. I would never want to be a part of not being able to help someone, but where is that fine line between being a good Christian and being a hypocrite .

  21. Ugh….scientific "experts" that want to negate the deeper truth of God and spiritual reality. I came from this world, and now recently born again…sorry guys, but the enemy has his hand in this big time. I dont speak from a Christian culture, I speak from God's word and starting with prayer and asking God for healing and assistance with our thoughts, and realizing our nature as sinful, we aim for perfection like any secular person, but rest in the forgiveness, mercy and grace of God. We aim for God again and again 💗 God bless you all

  22. She says things I don't think are one size fits all. But I know from having lived so long, her opinion is full of things that are just and beautiful. I learn to apply the band aid of tolerance , patience, love , joy… and think how it applies… But I practice… the Fruits of the spirit as best I can. But you must focus on the Goodness God teaches. And shelve distractions of the negative shadow of the rules oh the Spirit, don't practice Hate, sadness, War, impatience, coarseness, hubris…Thinking About These Things is what we should do, more often…. at the correct time. There is a time for aggression…we need to think therefore… how and when to avoid it. And when and how to study it. Thinking and learning from others must be a process of deciding who we accept and support and who to oppose. JUDGE not , Jesus said. But, Removing the Log from your own eye Comes with a promise, most people don't understand it. Advising students Freud advised his students to examine themselves. Jesus and Freud agreed on this point. It is just as true as Judge not and you will not be Judged. Remove the log from your own eye And you will relieve the PROMISE. So there is a time to , judge, think, evaluate… and the answer in a nutshell many times may as well be written in Yiddish.


  24. Wait, is she from South Africa? I'm sure she is. I'm from South Africa and I swear I can hear an accent when I hear it.

  25. I love this kind of teaching. First, I am a Follower of Christ and I believe that God is the author and Finisher of our Faith, please do not misunderstand my points.We are taught these platitudes and "pithy things" to say so we don't have the "negative " things in our lives. She is dead on right. Quoting Scripture, as she says, does create more problems because we feel guilt and condemnation which ADDS to the issues we are trying to deal with. God created us, He knows we: get mad, get frustrated, feel like punching walls (sometimes feeling the physical pain of doing so), we feel like cashing out (yes, brothers and sisters we can feel like going Home, it's okay more in a sec), and all those other negative things. When we cry out to God, or go to a trusted person who you can say anything to, we get it out, remove the power of that thing, and when something is powerless we realize it is beatable. Very few preachers would dare approach this without having around 100 scriptures that would not necessarily be bad (God's Word never returns void), but we need to see a way out. Sorry, longer than the video. More like this. PLEASE. Christian science IS REAL. AND it does make perfect sense, despite some of the heady words.

  26. Oh my goodness Stevens honesty BLESSED me so much – I am there in some of my thoughts so to see him as a powerhouse pastor and yet still being this honest to speak it , blessed me

  27. Not putting it down but…why 16 mins not 15 AND tried cleaning per say toxic thoughts. Tried imagining patterns as being in a island etc., but you just keep hearing all this voices…..or you gotta do this you or gotta do that. Gosh especially trying to read bible or any other material. Aaaah!! WOW what did you say?

  28. Ps.Furtick is great with these kind of interviews,love this one and one he did with Bishop Td Jakes

  29. Drugs,both legal,and illegal,and including cannibis,alcohol,meditation,yoga,martial arts,tatoos,body piercings,quija boards,these are some gateways to demonic possession.Satan is the Prince of the power of the air,sending mind control,demons,and witchcraft,through the airwaves.Certain cords of music summon demons(drums).REPENT,put on the full armor of God,Ephesians 6 KJV.Soak yourslef,family,home,possessions,electronics,pets,mind,will,emotions,spirit and soul in the blood of Jesus.Tribulation is coming.Jesus Christ,is the only one that can save,and the real word of God(the King James bible).pray the Psalms out loud,Pray Daniel`s prayer,Pray Hannah`s Prayer,pray Solomon`s Prayer.Pray Lamentations 5 KJV.

  30. Yea, so Philippians 4:8 isn't the reevaluation of self. It is talking about biblical meditation, righteous meditation. Good grief this girl is totally adding her own meaning to scripture.

    4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
    Philippians 4:4-9

  31. i'm not a doctor or scientist but the Holy Spirit has taught me this info for the last 10 year …nice to have someone confirm what God has shown me

  32. THIS IS PHENOMENAL!! So grateful for this teaching! Thank you, Father, for Caroline Leaf and Steven Furtick! This is Heaven on earth, IN OUR MINDS! So so good!

  33. I love this ministry! I am glad that God led me and my family to this church. His ministry has done wonders for mine and my family life

  34. This literally restores my faith in pastors. Thank you for being brave enough to be vulnerable in an intentional way from the pulpit. We, the body, need this.

  35. Pastor Steven, Doctor leaf. Thank you for taking the time to explain this. I'm always in my conflict. I have always wanted to do the right thing in life. But I have a very rebellious mind set. While I'm showing a good up front. I have this constant feeling of disgust, annoyance, irritation, feelings that are considered bad. I feel like no-one understand therefore a fighting spirit.. in the end making me feel guilty and unworthy

  36. I am at a breaking point and no doubt, God orchestrated it so I would see this video…a Word in due season for me. It won't be a quick fix, but it is doable with God's assistance and our application.

    I so needed this information today. It is a strategy. I had some pieces of this strategy given by the Holy Spirit throughout my walk, but more understanding came through this video. Praise and glory be to the Lord Most High.

    Now it's time to freak out in the love zone, by bringing deep issues to the light and daily applying what the Holy Spirit reveals in those still sessions with Him. God bless you all. 💖🕆🕇🕆💖

  37. Pastor Furtick, I suffer from this enormous sense of unworthiness. I know God has a great purpose for me, and have transformed over the past 2 years, when I gave my life to Christ. Exactly 2 years ago in June. I went through healing, forgiveness and deliverance the first year and a half, now I am working on changing habits. Trying to "drown" (as I call it) my flesh. But it is rebellious past what I can deal with.. One of my issues is not feeling worthy, worthy of love, of happiness, of having any friends, succes, worthy of my gift and passion as a seamstress and designer, or of my calling. Not worthy of succeeding in any area of my life, how do you deal with that. And what do I need to do. I pray, and pray. I ask God to give me strength to remove my self destructive habits. I want to serve God, so much, yet do everything not to…

  38. Those shoes!!! Great discussion but many times I was distracted by those shoes! I even took a screenshot of them to zoom in. Lol wow, so pathetic. I must listen to this awesome message audibly only.

  39. probably one of the realest and deepest interviews I've heard. I need to listen to more content like this

  40. Honest question from my heart, in relying on our mind power to solve all our problems, where do we let our faith come in ? Is this another version of SELF-help on our own ? How is this different from the rest of the self-help out there ?

  41. If you teach people to think, they will find God!!
    Christianese kills our ability to think…we just repeat phrases and don’t build new structures of thought. Cognitive dissonance!
    So good!!

  42. Leaf is phony. She is not a neuroscientist (her degree is in speech pathology and communications; a specialization in neuroscience does not make one a neuro-scientist). Please research Leaf; she actually teaches that your thoughts affect your genes and will change them so that they affect your descendants. She is mainly a phony neuroscientist and Word of Faith. She also misuses scripture.

  43. Hi pastor steven let me know when your in seattle wa again, got pray that jesus helps me make a way to come to your sermons. Thank you lord threw you help me alot i have been praying to understand what jesus wants me to do thanks you god blesses

  44. The way Caroline Leaf says I don’t like religion I like God speaks to me. I really enjoyed how she says how does love look like now that I am a little wiser the phrase love comes in many forms I’m so blessed that God has opened my mind. I don’t get mad I really don’t it takes a lot. Well actually maybe I do get mad. Just not a lot. We’re are we? Here we go. “Trigger” the series I have not seen. Trigger means to me when something come into your mind and changes your path or changes the way your thinking. Now that I have God in my life my triggers went from toxic to positive. A trigger for me can be the different from drinking coffee makes me focus lets be serious. To hot chocolate which for me teams have a good time. To hot water with lemon which means for me structure. The reason that these items have this effect on me is because of my life experience. When I wake before all I put God first then I take on my day. When I don’t put God first my structure is thrown off a bit. It does not give me a toxic trigger, but I do feel different. “The minute you are aware of something it’s weaker. When something is brought into the light it’s weaker.” Carolina Leaf said. She also mentioned that when you notice this it’s manageable you can change it. I see what she means that when those negative thoughts come in to mind one must stay positive. As Pastor Steven Furtick had a sermon called Gods going to Flip It. “Hey thanks.” Says Pastor Anthony Ennis. “Quality thinking.” Caroline Leaf says sixteen minutes of just sit. This will help. Once your thinking is clean will be able to take on your tasks. “Eliminate all toxic thinking.” Says Pastor Steven Furtick. “Mind and Brian are not the same.” mentioned Carolina Leaf. You can hear about this 37:00 minutes into the video.

    Thank you Pastor Steven Furtick and Carolina Leaf
    From Pastor Anthony Ennis.

  45. I am so excited about this talk and I'm only 8 minutes it. I'm getting it, I'm getting it . I've often felt and thought the same thing about religion

  46. I am sure that she is a lovely person however she is promoting and so is Furtick a counterfeit of the work of the HOLY SPIRIT. Jesus did not focus on the mind or the seat of the soul. Rather he focused on the Holy Spirit. Third person of the God head. This Holy Spirit was a promise that was essential for power and changing lives. I will give a free copy of Watchman Nee’s ‘Latent Power of the Soul” to anyone who will write to me at PO Box 66840, Albuquerque, NM 87193 (as long as the supply lasts). This is the fundamental problem with the denomination of which Furtick is a member. Consequently, members like him will condescend to counterfeits in lieu of the actual filling of the Holy Spirit. This is nothing more than psychoanalysis. Ladies, you know you love it.

  47. Can pastor Furtick be descent in his clothing for respect of his title? because the message you’re displaying to every pastor out there & your congregation is Christians & non Christians attires have no differences. Thank you Dr. Caroline Leaf for your respective wardrobe.

  48. I just can’t handle her voice. It’s not her fault. I wish I could because I really want to learn from her. The voice causes me to want to turn it off.
