Welcome to Phynyx Ministries!

Hello Beautiful Survivor!

Welcome to Phynyx Ministries, a place where you can obtain lots of helpful information to help you break your silence and begin to heal from being sexually assaulted. If you are not a Sexual Assault Survivor, perhaps you know someone who is. Please feel free to share this website with that person. This website is also a place where Survivor's can share their story, a poem, or words of encouragement with a survivor or anyone who chooses to visit our site.

I praise God for allowing me to survive being sexually assaulted because I now know what my purpose in this life is - and that is to be an example to those survivors who may feel that they can't move forward with their lives in a positive way. There was a time in my life when I thought that I'd never leave the confines of my mother's bedroom which was where I retreated after the attack. But I continued to pray to God for strength, peace, and sanity. I sought professional treatment and had an awesome support system.

It's been 15 years since that cold November night, but today I am happily married, have two beautiful daughters, and living life to the fullest. The road to recovery is not easy, but I made it and you can as well. Don't get me wrong, I still have flashbacks from time to time, but I've learned not to let them consume me. I know who I am and what I'm worth...I'm worth more than my attacker thought I was and like the Phoenix, I will continue to rise.

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Are You Willing to be Cut?

Everybody wants to be a diamond, but nobody wants to be cut...

'They shall be Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘On the day that I make them My jewels.'
Malachi 3:17
What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31 
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you may go. 
Joshua 1:9

Hello Beautiful!
Are you willing to be cut? 
The life of a diamond is complex from start to finish. 

A diamond is a mineral made of more than 99.5% pure carbon that is crystallized. The factors which have an influence on a diamond’s color and shape come from the remaining .05% of substance which makes up the diamond. Diamonds are extremely durable and strong, they are in fact the hardest known substance in the world. A diamond crystallizes roughly 100 miles below the earth’s surface. The crystallization occurs so low due to the temperatures and pressure required for the process to occur. The way diamonds were brought to the surface of the earth and hence found was due to volcanic eruptions occurring over 60 million years ago.  The first diamond mine ever discovered was in India before 600 BC. India was renowned for being the worlds largest supplier of diamonds. Many of the known famous diamonds were found in India. However today India only produces a very small percentage of the world's diamonds. Australia, Israel, America and South Africa are where most of the diamond production occurs today.

Diamonds are not found in the form which we find them set in beautiful rings, earrings and necklaces; they undergo many stages and cuts until they are presentable as gifts to those we love.

As Survivors, we are cut in many different ways but here are just a few:

Physical Cuts:  We can be physically cut when someone puts their hands on us in a harmful way or when someone physically abuses us.  In other words, when we are battered and bruised.

Mental Cuts:  We can be mentally cut when someone speaks negatively to us or about us in
in an effort to hurt us which oftentimes alters the way we think and process information.  It can also affect our decision making ability.

Spiritual Cuts:  We can be spiritually cut when our very spirits are harmed by something that someone has said or done that hits us so deep that it reaches our very spirits. 

Emotional Cuts:  This is very similar to being mentally abused.  Again, when your feelings or emotions are harmed by something that was said or done to you.  This could very well be a gateway to depression.

We know that cuts come in all different shapes, sizes and angles.  My cut may be vastly different from yours.  However, this is what makes us who we are.  Everything that we have survived which did not kill us is a cut to bring forth brilliance and clarity.  Romans 8:31 says, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."  This means that with every negative experience we encounter, God is working it out for our good.  Of course it doesn't feel good, but we find out later that there was actually some good in it.

Yes, this is difficult, I know you don't understand and I know you are asking why God why?  Know that every cut leads to a brilliant diamond--YOU!  The more trials, the more tribulations, the more tests--the more CUTS, the more exquisite and precious we become to be used by God to uplift HIS people to build HIS Kingdom. So I ask again my Sista, ARE YOU WILLING TO BE CUT?

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy
There is life after the silence. Let us help you break yours.

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. -Genesis 50:20 NIV

Hello Beautiful!

I am super excited to share with you that we will begin our 4th, yes 4th session of the Phynyx Ministries at Empowerment Temple's Sexual Assault Healing Ministry - To God Be the Glory!!!  For those who are not familiar E.T. S.A.H.M., we are group of STRONG women survivors of sexual violence, who meet every other Wednesday at the Empowerment Temple A.M.E. Church where our Phenomenal Pastor is none other than Rev. Dr. Jamal Harrison-Bryant!!!  We also conduct the Phynyx Prayer Call at 8:00pm on the alternate Wednesday that we do not meet at the church.

Sexual Assault is defined as contact of a sexual nature, including but not limited to intercourse, perpetrated using force or the threat of force or when the victim is incapable of giving consent.

Ladies, it does not matter if you were molested as a child, raped last year or touched inappropriately yesterday, we support and welcome you with open arms to attend our meetings.  You are not required to share your experience, but most women are comfortable enough to do so.  As members share their stories, you will quickly realize that you are not alone and that quite a few of our stories are similar. 

Here is the structure of the Meeting:

  • Open with Prayer, Praise and Worship
  • Welcome and announcements
  • Mini-Bible Study
  • Group Session with Clinical Counselor
  • Wrap up
  • Closing Prayer
  • Dismissal
Strong women don't play victim...WE ARE SURVIVORS.  We don't make ourselves look pitiful and we don't point fingers.  We STAND and we DEAL.

Please share this information with every woman you know, she just might be a Survivor who is on the edge of a BREAKDOWN but you can help her receive her BREAKTHROUGH just by sharing this info.  Thank you in advance for spreading the word!

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Happy 4th of July 2013!!!

Happy Independence Day!!!

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1

But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.
Romans 6:22

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are downtrodden, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord."
Luke 4:18-19

Hello Lovelies!

This is the day when we Americans celebrate our country's independence, but today I am celebrating my freedom from those things that had been keeping me in bondage - those strongholds over my life like anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness, fear and low self-esteem.  As a result of being sexually assaulted, all of the aforementioned symptoms (as a result of being sexually violated) held me in such bondage that at times I didn't want to live.  BUT GOD!!! God healed me and showed me that there is life after the silence!  God gave me a will to live and helped me to believe that I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made, that I do MATTER and that I am ENOUGH...AND SO ARE YOU!!!

So on today, know that you can be free from any and everything that is holding you down or in bondage.  God freed me and can free you as well, if you let Him...will you?

With love,
Phynyxx Skyy

Check out this link to an inspirational thought for today by my girl Nicole Roberts Jones.  This message spoke to me so much that I had to share with you, my Lovelies!!!
Hope you enjoy it!  ~Phynyxx Skyy
