Have you ever tried one of those tornado simulators? Well this one time my two younger sisters went into one together.
You put in the money, you go inside and then you wait. Once that door closes you inside the simulator, you start to feel a slight breeze and then that breeze gets stronger and stronger to simulate the different levels of a tornado.
While they were inside the simulator it felt like they where being batted around by this wind, but on the outside all you saw was the effects of the wind. Their hair was going everywhere, their clothes were being pulled around, but from the outside you could not feel the wind at all, you could only see the effects of the wind.
Well this goes out to all you prophets out there! Being a P.I.T. (Prophet In Training) is a lot like being in that simulator. You don't know what is happening, all you see is this wind ripping your clothes and pulling your hair all over the place, all the while your mentor in standing on the outside.
You see, they know what is happening, they can see what you are doing and they know the effect it is having on you, that is why they can help you with your training, because they are not in that simulator with you. Yes they are there for you, but this is your training - not theirs.
Oh yes some days we just want to rant and rant and rant, but nope, your mentor knows exactly what's up and boy, do you wish you had an inkling of what they knew. You can know all the principles, you could have read every book there is, but nothing can compare to actual training.
That ladies and gentlemen is what it is like to be a P.I.T! To have the storm raging around you, not being able to see a couple inches from your right or to your left, you have to trust the voice of your mentor on the other side of that "wall of wind."
There are many times I thought I was coming to my mentor about something natural and it turned out to be part of my training. Oh how I love it when that happens. You see for me, my mentor in the prophetic is my own mother, so you can imagine what that is like!
We will be praying and she will say, "this is not just your emotions, this is part of your training! You are triggering to something with your... mother!" Yes it is lots of fun, but hey that's being a P.I.T.
You trigger people, you trigger yourself and you tend to step on everyone's toes, but the prize at the end is worth it. After dealing with each trigger, root of bitterness and demon, you feel the difference both physically and spiritually, you feel like a whole new person and like weights have been lifted from your shoulders.
Yes it is a wild ride, but it is one of those rides where you are screaming your head off because it is so much fun... you just don't realize it until the ride stops moving.

With Much Joy and Blessing,
P.S. If you need a mentor as much as I did, check out our Prophetic School where every single student is given a trainer to see them through this process. Sure, I cannot promise that the storms will stop, but I can promise that you no longer have to face them alone!
