Hello everyone! My name is Cindy Ellams. Answering God’s Life Coach Minister call, I am studying at Christian Leaders Institute to learn more about God and the Bible (Learn more about online Bible classes, Click Here). I am from Canada. Since childhood, I moved around in Canada a bit and have recently found my home location in Vernon, British Columbia. I am married and have been with my husband since I was 22. We have a little boy named Safi who is currently 3 and a half.
My Journey to New Age
Due to difficult home life, I decided to move out on my own when I was 16 years old. I also dropped out of high school simultaneously. I was a good student and could achieve high grades when I applied myself. However, the struggle of home life was too much for me to really care about education at that time. I did go back over the course of a few years.
During my early twenties, I mostly found work as a receptionist at an accounting firm and a chiropractic clinic. I eventually pursued self-employment in the “new age/new thought” arena as an energy healer and transformational coach. I was into all of this since I was very young. At the time, it seemed like a natural fit. I worked for myself and built up my own clientele from 2012 till I let it all go in 2021. I had developed a good reputation in this arena with loyal clients. Also, I was doing some public speaking and facilitating transformational healing classes and workshops. I had the vision to build a strong career in the healing and transformational movement as a public figure.
Jesus Changed Me
That all changed in October of 2020. In October 2020, I had been in a rut and was experiencing very subtle waves of depression and simply feeling lost. I had reread a metaphysical book called “The Nine Faces of Christ.” This book is about a new-age version of Jesus. The thing is that I always loved Jesus. In the new age movement, Jesus is considered one of the master teachers, but this is obviously a false and distorted version of Jesus.
This love of Jesus was never instilled into me by anyone that I can remember. There were no influences that taught me about Jesus. He was just always there. After re-reading this book, it gave me the drive to study what Christianity was all about. I started to check it out, and that was when everything changed. I felt the true presence of Jesus in my life. He started showing me how everything that I was into was demonic.
My Tortured Journey to Jesus
I got pregnant in December 2016 with my first and only child. In January 2017, I started getting demonic attacks and demonically tormented. About a month before getting pregnant, I had done a San Pedro ceremony where I consumed a large amount of San Pedro cactus which is hallucinogenic. It was a very bad experience for me. From my current vantage point, along with everything else I was doing in my life, I believe I opened a major demonic doorway at this time.
The torment would come and go throughout my pregnancy but took on a whole new level when my son was born. It was extremely severe for the first year and a half of his life (I won’t go into the details here). It started to ease afterward but would still come and go.
Deliverance through Jesus
By the time October 2020 came, I had exhausted every avenue (other than Jesus) of healing my life from this torment and other things. Nothing worked, and I was at a dead end. This is when Jesus came and revealed to me the truth of everything I was involved in. How it was inviting the devil masquerading as“an angel of light” to be firmly rooted in my life.
Since then, I have been on and off in spiritual warfare. I experienced true drastic transformation and much deliverance. However, there is still a little way to go. I am part of a church of wonderful people who are well aware of my situation. They are helping me through this until I see complete deliverance and victory in my life. I know in full faith that it is just a matter of God’s timing.
Life Coach Minister Call and Study at CLI
I am so grateful to Christian Leaders Institute because you have been part of my journey of getting closer to God and experiencing true transformation. I feel a Life Coach Minister call on my life from God. Also, I want to focus on deliverance ministry because it has been such a big part of my journey. At some point, when I am a little further down the path, I would like to speak to people who are immersed in the “new age/new thought” movement and share Jesus with them: the true biblical Jesus as I now know Him.
I would not be able to get this kind of education at this time without Christian Leaders Institute. I had to let go of my income through my clients. With a very small amount of study time, I take care of my son full time and am going down the homeschool path. Thank you, CLI, from the bottom of my Jesus-loving heart. You are in my prayers.
