48 Hrs Behind Bars: Another Life Story

A couple of weeks ago, I walked out of the Alpharetta Detention Center a free woman. Sleeping behind bars in a cold, isolated cell for 48-hrs had come to an end. In the video below I share more of this story but for now, I just want to ask you if you are ready, willing, and able to follow the spiritual path God has for you?

If you know me then you know I have worked to merge my business with my ministry just as my physical and spiritual self is merged through daily spiritual practices with the Divine. I live a purpose-driven life. Every client I offer holistic health therapy and services is receiving what God has given me to share with them. My life is a sacrifice of praise to God.

Being a healing artist is not easy in a world where the mass belief is, value and beauty are out there, not within. But for those who have eyes to see through earthly illusions, health and happiness are discovered on the path to the knowledge of Self. During some of our darkest moments, we come to the realization, “I am the Light of the world.” I love working with my clients to uncover their inner brilliance.

During the 48-hrs I was locked up, I encouraged a sister who had been there since April and massaged a Senora’s shoulders who was heavily burdened. She was fighting to keep it together, fearful of deportation and being separated from her 4 children and husband. Imagine being pulled over Wednesday for texting while driving on your way home from work then minutes later, you are handcuffed, and taken to a cold, windowless cell. She prayed, cried, paced. We touched, healed, calmed.

Hours had passed and the other ladies were transferred out to other detention facilities, leaving me to my thoughts about what my family and friends would think about my predicament. Just like that, I started affirming my truth. I asked my Higher Self, what is this, why am I here, what am I supposed to take away from this experience? The answer came to me, “this is an absolute FAST. No food, no water, and no speaking unless absolutely necessary. Listen and I will speak through you.”

I saw several visions as I shifted between sleep and awakeness and one of them was of the biblical characters Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. As soon as I was released, I did a little research online regarding the metaphysics of this biblical story and how it related to my fiery purification experience. I discovered this excerpt on the Unilty website. It is the metaphysical meaning of this biblical story. You may resonate with it.

The Hebrew meaning of Shadrach is meekness; Meshach, love; Abednego, light; Nebuchadnezzar, accusing judgment; Babylon, confusion or mixture.

There are times when we find ourselves in the confusion of the sense consciousness, and its thoughts are so strong that they seem to have us in complete captivity. We have so taken up this sense state that we gradually accept its conditions, and like these three Hebrew children, become rulers in Babylon. We accept the testimony of sense in one thing after another, until Human Judgment (Nebuchadnezzar ) sets up the “golden image” and demands that we fall down and worship it. Then it is that we come to ourselves and declare our loyalty to God instead of Mammon. But we are in the realm of “confusion,” and it holds sway over us until we demonstrate out of it.

This realm of mind worships gold, and, unless you accept its commercial customs, it will put you in the fiery furnace of persecution. But if you are true to the Highest and refuse to bow down to this idol of the world, and meet its fiery persecutions with meekness, love, and understanding, you will come out unscathed. The fourth man in the fiery furnace, “like the Son of God,” is the realization of your I Am in its unity with God. Then Human Judgment recognizes the power of the true God, who is Spirit, and who reinstates Meekness, Love, and Understanding, with greater power than before.

Needless to say, the fiery purification of this 48-hr absolute fast has positioned me to better stand with the coaching and consulting clients who are being led by God for me to serve. 2019 has been a year where knowing God Is My Supply has been demonstrated, proven.

I continue to affirm cash is not the only currency. Where ever I am God is. I am wealth beyond measure. I am in this world but I am not of this world. I am Love. I am free.

I met the fiery ego persecutions behind bars in a cold, isolated cell for 48-hrs with meekness, love, and understanding. I created a sacred healing space inside the fiery furnace. I came out with a high powered female attorney who represented me pro bono. More than $900 in fees and expenses were cleared and the inconvenience of 12 probation visits and 8 defensive driving classes, all disappeared. I was exonerated.

More goddess energy came to my rescue in the form of transportation from Columbus to Roswell and back again. My sister Sheila and her prayer partners covered me and yoga was my vehicle for retreating inside mySelf where my soul was being purified.

I’ve slept better since this purification experience than I have all year long. I am strengthened and more focused on the vision of health & happiness in homes around the world that may have been plagued with emotional and physical dysfunction, depression, and anxiety. God has given me a vision for the Optimal Living Healing Arts Center, a place where local families and tourists alike can come and experience empowertainment, art, and holistic healing. Some of the most profound healing artists will grace the stage at the Optimal Living Healing Arts Center.


I’m asking 500 of my family, friends, and supporters to contribute $100 each by January 30, 2020, to help make this vision become a reality. That’s $25 a month October through January. If you choose to mail in your contribution, you can send it to Versandra Kennebrew, 5402 15th Ave Suite 3, Columbus, GA 31904. To say thank you, I want you to enjoy VIP Access at our April 2020 opening celebration, art exhibit and live concert featuring YaTafari, Music Practitioner.

Don’t forget to watch the video below where I share insights about managing depression and anxiety while dealing with the criminal justice system. I am loyal to God and not Mammon, therefore, I have no doubt that you will do what you can to help me fulfill my divine assignment. You may even see your divine assignment being fulfilled while supporting mine. We are one you know.

God manifests itself through nature, art, you, and me, so please say yes and ask a friend to do the same. Give $25 a month through January or call me to ask about other opportunities to support the Optimal Living Healing Arts Center using a non-cash currency.

Thanks a million! Versandra
