In this episode, I'm visiting with Todd Armstrong, host of Godcast: The Goodness Over Darkness Podcast. Seven years ago, after 90 days in jail, a prayer changed his life. He has since experienced a psychic awakening, a rebirth, and has lost 100 pounds.
Listen in as we talk about God/source, how the Earth provides, how to follow your intuition, and conspiracy theories.

Welcome back to a magical life. I'm your host magic Barclay. And today I'm joined by Todd Armstrong. I'm not even gonna go into a bio here because I'm going to let Todd explain. Everything about how prayer helped him heal with our questions, but listeners, we all know this is a bit of a departure from our normal programming. I am not particularly religious and I'm really looking forward to hearing Todd speak because I think there is something out there. I refer to it as source or universe. There is something out there. And Todd and I have been emailing each other, and honestly, I'm loving the answers that he's been emailing in prep for this episode. So Todd, give usTodd Armstrong:
your bio. Well, I want to thank you so much for being here. And I think that God definitely put us here together at this moment, because there was so many scheduling issues and, and mishaps. So I wanna thank you so much for your kindness. It's uh, very warm welcome that you have given me here on your podcast. So a little bio for me is, uh, seven years ago, I was in prison for burglarizing pharmacies and in. Burglarizing pharmacies the 90th day in prison, which I specifically remember was my 90th day. I don't really particularly know why, but I just kind of was keeping track, I guess. And, uh, that's just something that really stuck out to me was my 90th day. I pray to God and say, God, this is inform me. I will do what you want me to do. Just please. Take me outta here. And from that moment on I wasn't an addict. So before that, I, I forgot to mention. That I was a drug addict for 10 years. Uh, I was doing pharmaceuticals. It was really, uh, Percocet 30 milligram Percocet, where my, to go item that I drug of choice if you will. But it was really, uh, a mixture of things. It was just changing. Altering. My state of consciousness is what I was into because I've experienced a lot of traumas. Go back to being a young child with sexual abuse and also living in a home with a narcissist and just the forms of communication that went in my house. And the examples that were set for me really led me into a dark path. So anyway, when I prayed to God, I wasn't an addict anymore. That next day it was gone. Whatever that. I don't know, bail of energy that was surrounding me. It wasn't there anymore because I kept telling myself prior to that, if I get bailed out, because I was still on bail at the time, or was still eligible for bail, I wasn't sentenced. I kept telling myself if I get bailed out, I'm gonna go get high. Like that's I was planning on it and I didn't get bailed out now. That's, you know, there's a reason for that because God didn't, I had to be accountable for the things that I did because I did a lot of things that were very, uh, very harmful to many people. So I had to face everything and in doing so, I've been facing myself in this last seven years in a very particular way. I've been very keen on looking at myself and evaluating myself and in doing. I keep being purified over and over and over. So during that time I've lost over a hundred pounds. I have completely changed how I have relationships with people. It used to be, uh, I used to be an aggressive type of person, LA outspoken. That just didn't really care how people felt when I said things to now, I'm very empathic and caring and I understand. Everything I do say and think has. Grand repercussions on all the others around me, as well as myself and the, the karma that'll come back to me, if you will, for everything that we do say and think so I'm very particular with how I do things now. And I evaluate myself on a very, my level. And about three years ago, so I was spiritually dead right around this time. About three years ago. I'd. Uh, maybe a little bit, uh, before that I started to meditate and wake up just a little bit. And then in the, that summer, uh, I just became super psychic. I don't recommend doing this, but I took, a hit of a bong and I, my crown shocker popped open and it was like all these different. Feelings and voices and energies were just coming into me. And I was someone who was spiritually dead. And then this just happened for me. And then, so I, I went with the flow and I started looking into different ancient civilizations. And I started looking into why humanity exists in the first place. What's the reason why we're here. There has to be a reason. I started looking into that. I get into ancient civilizations that leads to psychedelics, then that leads to why we're psychedelics illegal and so on and so forth. And I try out my hand and those, I have some great, magical experiences. I experience rebirth. I see the creator face to face. Uh, I'm just, I mean, he was just there in front of me and I still couldn't recognize what exactly it was. I was at that time, I thought Jesus was maybe an ascended master or something to that degree. So I'm like, oh, okay. This is just somebody who I encountered. And. So going from there, you know, as I'm psychic, then 2020 happens is I move 750 miles away from cause we were locked down in Pennsylvania where I was. So I moved 750 miles away to Georgia because I took a July 4th of July. So in America, 4th of July is our independent day. It's a big holiday. My daughter and myself, we were tired of being lockdown. You know, I've been laid off from my job for several months and we wanted to go somewhere where we could do things and Georgia, which was 750 miles away was somewhere that was open. So we came down here and I met my, uh, co-host and a lovely partner. Mimi, she's not here obviously, but we fell in love like immediately three weeks later, I moved here and we've been kindling this relationship, but the whole time we just, we knew that we were part of each other. I don't know if, uh, about twin flames or anything like that, but it was like we belonged together. There was just something about it and we've been sharpening each other and making each other better. And when I, so when I say sharpening, not really sharpening, actually softening, she's been softening me big time because of, you know, how I was brought up. That's the way that I live. So she really softened me. And, uh, so last year, a little over a year. I work as a truck driver and I. Was delivering food. I deliver food and I have a hand truck or a Dolly full of 400 pounds of chicken and cheese. And I go to pick it up a curb, you know, stepping backwards to pick it up the curb. And I slip because it was inside of a kitchen and I fall the food falls on me and I land right on my tailbone right on my root cha. And I am in such pain. I thought that I was paralyzed. I couldn't feel my legs. Literally for minutes. I was pinned down for several minutes. I couldn't move this off may. And the only way I got off was there were two, like 60 year old, Mexican women who spoke no English who kind of lifted it up just a little bit so that I could slide out from under, because I had no feeling in my legs. Then over the course of three days of burning tobacco, I didn't know at the time, but I've come to know nails, uh, native American practice to ward off evil spirits. So between that drinking tea, that would help relieve me of the pain and laughing with my daughter and my girlfriend like overly. So I was laughing with them. I herd up demons and I was in bliss for 10 days. And the feeling that came to me was that I was saved by Jesus Christ and. It was so the feeling you get from mushrooms, uh, that I said that I was reborn and I got in touch with God. It's like a 10 minute period while I had that feeling for 36 straight hours from not doing any drugs when I was saved by Jesus Christ. And then it was another eight and a half days. It was a little bit less than that. I wasn't so intense, but it was still completely bliss. Like I. No care in the world, there was nothing I could do wrong. It was just this feeling of perfectness. And so that was last year. And then, uh, I've created my podcast. I told my story about my sexual trauma, my addiction, my. So many different things that I've been through in my podcast and doing so was healing for me, just getting that out there and it helped others. And, uh, just cultivating this sense of truthfulness that I'm just gonna be completely truthful and honest, and I'm gonna do the best I can to represent truth. And I've been doing that and doing it. And the more that I do it, the more the creator reveals the truth to me. All these different questions that I always have, because I question everything. I, I don't fit into any category specifically, but if someone wants to call me a conspiracy theorist, you know, I definitely am that. So, you know, like Jesus saved me, but I'm still not a Christian. I don't identify with Christianity, but I identify as being a conspiracy theorist because I question everything and. Jesus shows to me as the creator, as having a personal relationship with him, the entirety of everything, he shows me exactly what the Bible was teaching at different moments and how it got corrupted. He shows me. All of the different questions of, you know, were there people here before Adam and Eve and, and just all the different questions that don't really make sense in a Christian perspective. When you start looking at conspiracy theories and spirituality, he explains it all to me because we have this relationship that he just keeps unveiling to me further and further. So it all started with that prayer in prison. My 90th am, which will actually be seven years in like one month from now. So almost seven years. And the significant part about that is that our cells regenerate and we're completely new people every seven years. So I have very few cells still left in my body that experienced being in prison seven years ago. So it's just an incredible transformation that God has really, uh, set me on thisMagic Barclay:
path. Amazing. And now listeners, you understand why? I I can't read a static bio for Todd. Now Todd, I asked the same three questions of all my guests and everyone gives me an array of answers. So I'm gonna launch straight in our first topic is health. Now, when we're talking health, it's not just the physical health, but also the emotional and spiritual health of a person. So what can your expertise do to accelerate?Todd Armstrong:
Okay. So to accelerate health, what I'm really into at the moment, uh, is detox and parasites. I mean, it. The information that I've been picking up on lately is just, it's more clear to me than anything that if we detox our parasites, that all of our bad behaviors are easier to get rid of because our parasites are driving us to do them. They're the parasites are the physical representation of these demonic spirits or negative energies that really affect us in our emotional and mental states, as well as the spiritual state. So. What I've been taking lately is wormwood black Walnut, garlic, and clove. And you wanna do that three days prior to a full moon, the day of the full moon, and then three days after the full moon, do it for at least one week. And you'll see that whatever you're trying to give up, whether it's, you know, quitting sugary foods or quitting coffee, quitting cigarettes, or trying to eat healthier. We're trying to exercise whatever you're trying to do, but you're, you're hitting this wall of non motiv. If you clear out your parasites, that wall will lessen and you'll be able to run through it. And you'll see that if you had been doing the parasite detox, that things would've been much easier for you. So that's the number one thing that I've been focusing on lately.Magic Barclay:
Many people that I've come across in working in health will like, they'll be on one side of the fence or the other. They're either really mainstream, really pro big farmer, or they're like me. They're a lot more natural. The earth will provide source will provide. You know, it's all been here before through the ages. Let's use that kind of information. So for people that are maybe sitting on a fence, do I go to the doctor and, you know, believe that one person knows everything about everything and can give me something synthetic. I'm not saying that's wrong. That's just how I see it. Uh, or someone that goes, no, I'm just going to let the earth provide. How do you suggest people follow their intuition? This is what I'm getting to. People seem to be one way or the other. Now I know for my intuition, if I break a bone and it's sticking outta my leg, I know putting a pice on it or grounding or sitting in a sunshine, probably won't be enough. I need to do something else. So my intuition would say, Get yourself to a hospital and get this put back in place. But there are a lot of people that cut themselves off from their intuition. So they just believe in one side or the other. How would you say to those people follow your intuition, whether you believe in God or not, there is something guiding you because so many people seem to be disconnected.Todd Armstrong:
Yeah, I totally agree. Uh, it is, a case per case, what we're gonna do depending on what's happening, but how do you get in touch with your intuition is, are, well, some people, if they feel strongly enough, Medicine, uh, and the Western philosophy of medicine, then that can be used for their benefit. God uses all things for the good, whether we understand it in the moment or not. Comes back to us and if something's poison and we drink it, but we believe it's not poison and we have enough strength in Christ or God that it's not gonna poison us, then we're not gonna be poisoned. And that's not to say, go drink poison. It's just to say, God can change anything in the snap of a finger. So if someone truly believes in medicine as their path, then by all means the other path isn't gonna work for you. If you're a full force into one specific way that way's gonna work for you now, for me, what I understand is that everything here has an equal and an opposite. So. When we get sick, there is some kind of plant mixture that is going to make us better. That it's just a natural product. And like you said, with having a broken bone. There may not be something natural for that. Now, maybe there is that we just have no idea about I'm learning about healing frequencies and things like that, cymatics at the moment. So not gonna say that there aren't things that can do it, but if you're just going to be by yourself and try to figure out what's going. There are so many plants that heal so many different things. Like what I just said for the parasite detox, they're all natural items that it is. We are beings are flesh is of this earth. So things of this earth are meant to heal. Are flesh pharmaceuticals comes from the ancient Greek word Pharmaca, which is in the Bible. And that means witchcraft and sorcery. So when you start to understand that the synthetic. Things are being made with this witchcraft. And soory, it's actually just taking plants and crushing them up and putting them in pill form or, you know what, however else they're doing, but it's not only natural things, but they're adding synthetic things to it. Now, when you look at a commercial for medicine, I know America's, filled with all of these different commercials, whereas the rest of the world isn't, but we're bombarded with side effects. It's like a big joke here about how many side effects you'll hear at the end of a commercial. So, All those side effects, they're they come from the synthetic things that are placed in addition to the natural things that make up this medicine. So you can just go straight to the medicine now to your intuition of what to do is just really of how you feel. If you feel uncomfortable one way or the other. If you feel uncomfortable in the doctor's office of the information he's telling you, go get a second opinion because it is a medical opinion that they're offering. There are not, uh, just some kind of priest class types of. Beings that know everything, that there are medical opinions. And if you're not comfortable going to, let's say a shaman on the opposite end, who's telling you different things, then don't do what they're offering and explore your options until you feel comfortable with what it is, whether it's you go to multiple Western doctors, multiple, you know, shamanistic doctors or a mixture thereof, you want to feel comfortable. Not have an uneasy feeling in the gut.Magic Barclay:
Goodness said it better myself. Thank you. Now we do talk about wealth here. So people think wealth is just the financial, but it's also the personal and the emotional wealth of a person, because we know you can't build financial wealth to you believe in yourself. So what are your top three tips to creating wealth?Todd Armstrong:
Okay, so wealth. So I would start with the human body and, uh, this will just be a brief aside with the human body. There's four states. You have the physical state, the emotional state, the mental state and the spiritual state. Now maybe there's other ones, but there are the four main states that we have. So when we're talking wealth, you want to have an abundance of all of those states. Now, how do you do that? How do you. Where money falls in at is probably the physical state, but we're not even gonna talk about just money itself. When we're talking about wealth here, wealth and abundance is you want to, firstly, you gotta start at your lowest state, whatever your lowest state is that you need to work on. That's what you need to work on. If you're. Mental anxiety, depression, those types of mental O C D. Those things are affecting you. You need to overcome them and you can overcome them without medicine. Uh, and without even, I mean, plants could help as well. Uh, but you don't need necessarily need them either. If you're breathing, uh, Doing these meditations. This is what actually healed me from all of those things was meditating and getting in touch with God and focusing in on myself and getting those vibrational frequencies out of my body. So your mental state, you gotta clear that out now, the emotional state. When you see the news and whatever thing is on the news, you emotionally react to it. Whether it's, you know, the conflict that's going on right now in a part of the world or the virus that was affecting the world, if you're emotionally reacting one way or the other, then that is what you need to work on. You need to recognize in yourself, which of the states that. Poor in, you know, we're talk in terms of wealth and abundance here. Well, which one are you poor in? Are you in a poor emotional state where everything is just making you freak out and, and you're getting angry and sad and just all over the place. Emotional, you know, they say bipolar because you're. Living from pole to pole. That's a very common thing. And people, they hear the word bipolar and they get very offended that you would say something like that. Instead of looking at themselves saying like, yeah, I am pretty sporadic. I'm going from being happy on top of the world to being sad or, uh, being angry and depressed. In the matter of moments or we also have the physical state, which is the health of our body and the state of being that we're keeping ourselves in. Are we living in a clean environment? Are we living in muck? Are we feeding ourselves things that are gonna keep us low in a state of vibrational, static or stagnant, not being able to get up because we're eating Doritos at 10 o'clock at night on the couch, or are we eating things like nuts and berries and, uh, meats and fruits and different things that are healthy for you? No matter what your diet Terry choices are for your own body, because everybody's different. It doesn't really matter what I say, because what I say might be best for me. And that's only for me. So whatever your best dietary. Plan is for. It's not gonna be eating junk foods, processed foods, it's gonna be eating the healthier side of things. So how are you taking care of yourself in that sense? As well as exercise, uh, and sunlight, that is a, a very major factor and drinking a lot of water. That's another abundance thing. And now spiritually. So we touched on the, the bottom three now, spiritually, what is going on? Are you in a state where you're being, your thoughts are attacking you. Or you are having energies affect you and you're getting headaches. When you walk to the Walmart, you're constantly getting headaches at home when you're watching TV at a certain time of day, uh, where maybe you just are overcome with some kind of outburst in one way, that's unnatural to you in one way or another. Uh, whether it's a positive experience or a negative experience, you are probably being effecti. In the spiritual sense of things, which is an energetic sense of things, which is Demonn or demonic, oppression influenced possession. That's a very real thing. It was, you know, I threw demons up. I literally threw demons up. So it's quite incredible. The difference it makes in you when you are spiritually attuned to versus having something attacking you on a regular basis. So. If you are wherever you are personally at, if you start. Evaluate the poorest part of yourself in any of those four states. And it's a never ending cycle that, you know, maybe you'll be a mental and then emotional and then spiritual and then physical and then spiritual again, and then physical again. However it's gonna go. You can always improve yourself wherever you are. And it's not to say that you're not good enough or that you aren't enough, cuz you are perfect as you are. God sees you. As perfect, but you yourself know that maybe I could be doing more in this sense or that sense. And that is where you will then be uplifting yourself and others by continually improving yourself. And you do that only by evaluating yourself with the keen sense of love and understanding that there is more, that you could be.Magic Barclay:
Thanks for that. Now we do talk about weight loss here, and I ask my guess, if you've ever battled your weight, what was the key to losing it? You've really touched on that. But the other thing is what was. Key in reducing your stress because we know that stress is a key issue in well, in all disease, but particularly in weight gain and severe weight loss. So what can you share with the listeners about that?Todd Armstrong:
Okay. Yeah, so, like I said, I've lost over a hundred pounds now since I was my heaviest, I was about 280 pounds. And now I'm in a very good shape. I've, it's been exercise over years of, eating healthier as well. And I'm not in the best shape of my life last year as actually, or two years ago. I'm sorry, was when I was in the best shape of my life. So the way that I lost. The majority of my weight was cutting out sugary drinks completely. I lost 30 pounds the first month, and that was without exercise. And that was while I was an over the road truck driver, which meant I was sitting behind a wheel driving 10, 11 hours a day and sleeping in the back of my truck because that's all I did cross country. So. 30 pounds and 30 days by cutting out sugary drinks and switching to things like, uh, you know, switching from a soda to Gatorade zero, you know, zero sugar in it, or drinking water with one of those Koolaid packets that has zero sugar in it. Cutting out all sugar. No, uh, in my coffee, I would drink it black, no sugar at all. So that was my number one way to lose weight was just. Getting all the sugary drinks outta me. And, Yeah. so the way to reduce stress from me, what I was doing, because I was very angry, very stressed out. I was a curmudgeon. That's a term in America. I'm not sure if you're familiar with it, but I was very much miserable all the time. And the way that I overcame that was meditation was just sitting, breathing, closing my eyes and breathing. And the first time I did it, I was, I fell asleep within 60 seconds. And you know, it was only like a 10 minute nap or something, but I did. And I was good for three weeks, two weeks and I would do it again. And I would last two minutes. So I started using the app called Headspace and. That really just helped me get to a, a place where I could relieve this stress by just letting go of these thoughts. I never let go of my thoughts before. So that taught me how to let go. And when you let go of the thoughts, then you're not being burdened by those things. And then you don't have to have anything. On your mind, that's weighing you down. Another good technique that I now know how to do is ask God to take them from you. You can say a prayer, you can say it down to the universe. You know, you can say it in your mind. Just say, can you please unburden me? Can you please help me not be stuck? Can I, can you please help me not be stressed anymore? And eventually if you keep on doing. That will eventually get you freed from whatever stress and, um, stressors that are happening to you on a repeated basis.Magic Barclay:

So, uh, I've I keep it fairly cheap and I used to do other energy work, but I've, God has really had me put that down because I was taking on the energy of people. The way that I do things was very different than anybody else I've ever heard of. So it was, uh, not conducive to myself. So God had me put that down, but it. Still, what I can do is help unburden people.
