In this lesson, Dawna De Silva addresses the spiritual realm and offers some techniques on how to stay free from the corresponding atmosphere’s influence. She helps us differentiate between atmospheres we are experiencing (those we normally face) and broadcasts we are “picking up” from either other people or the spiritual realm around us. Once we identify the atmospheres that are not our own, we can shift them and exchange their influence for the Lord’s blessings (love, joy, peace, etc.).
Lesson 2: Tactics of the Enemy
In this lesson we will learn about common tactics and lies of the enemy, and how we can overcome them with the truth. There are some powerful tools in this lesson for recognizing lies and replacing them with God’s view of the situation.
Lesson 3: Weapons of our Warfare
In this session, we’ll be learning about what it looks like to use “divine power to destroy strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:4). Dawna explains five weapons of spiritual warfare that we can use to thwart the attacks of the enemy. There are many ways to use each one, so get ready to be even more equipped for the battle!
Lesson 4: Spiritual Authority
As we learn about different weapons of spiritual warfare, it is vital that we stay in constant communication with God to know which weapons and strategies to use in each situation we face. Just because we have a lot of weapons or tools in our tool belt, doesn’t mean we should use them all at once. God knows which ones will be effective in specific situations. He loves to communicate with us and He wants us to be victorious in every battle!
Lesson 5: Discerning Spiritual Atmospheres
An important part of shifting atmospheres is discerning the prevailing atmosphere. Similar to our physical senses (taste, touch, sight, hearing, and smell), our spiritual senses allow us to pick up information. Whether the topic of discerning spiritual atmospheres is brand-new information for you or not, we can all grow in the gift of discernment.
Lesson 6: Shifting of Atmospheres
Now that we have learned about recognizing prevailing spiritual atmospheres, it is time to learn the next steps in order to shift the atmospheres. Of course these steps should be taken with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Lesson 7: Shifting Atmospheres Over Yourself and Your Home
In this lesson Dawna addresses the need for us to become aware of the atmospheres we give off personally and the atmospheres we steward in our homes. As children of God, we should be promoting heavenly atmospheres. Dawna gives us simple tools to identify what is causing the negative atmospheres to develop so we can deal with them and invite God’s presence to fill the void.
Lesson 8: Shifting Atmospheres Over Regions
In this final lesson we will learn how to recognize and displace regional spirits. Dawna shares several examples of what this looks like. As always, we should stay connected to the Holy Spirit and ask Him for strategies in how He wants us to release the goodness of God.
