Still Here

Sorry you all, it has been a very busy few weeks and I haven’t had time to sit down and type my thoughts out. I have a lot of thoughts that I plan on putting together soon!

One of my main thoughts and I’m gonna leave it here, If you are apart of YWAM and reading this I hear your silence and see your lacking in social justice actions. The marginalized are the ones your bible tells you to love not to outcast like the dogs you treat them as. Tell me, how does it feel being the villain of your bible and completely negating the “least of these?”

Drop a comment below, I know you folks read my posts. Thanks I’ll be back soon!


By the way the picture is when I started hormones and my most recent selfie. Never been happier.

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.

  1. Dear Elijah,

    I hope this message finds you well. I know you have had a hard life. I know your soul is wounded. And I am sorry I wasn’t a good friend to you. Like everyone else I have a lot going on.
    I was wondering about you. And I found you.
    I respect your decision to follow this way of life. But I know a better way. A way that you can get healing in your soul and be completely set free where you won’t nees these things to “feel” complete. These things only make you “happy” on a temporary basis. I know. Bc I fight every day for peace. Even if it’s takes hours of prayer every morning I fight until something breaks in the spirit realm.

    I have seen God move in my life in ways I never imagined. There are so many people around the world with anointings that can break you of all the anger and hurt you feel inside. You just have to be willing.
    Maybe Jesus sent me. To let you know, He loves you so much. And he is not in an organization or in religion, He is right there next to you. Place your hand on your beating heart. That is where you will find him.
    Can I send you a couple of prayers to say and please don’t get mad at me. I say these prayers at least 3 times a week. Sometimes even more depending on how much warfare is coming against me. I will copy and paste them.
    These prayer have helped me so much. Bc our tongues and the words we speak from our mouths truly do become what we see in our worlds. So if you ever feel led, say these prayers. And maybe you won’t see anything happen right away, but eventually you will see a shift happen. And when your soul begins to heal, your life will heal. I love you, friend. Take care of yourself.

    Here are the prayers:
    Say them often. Every day even if you have to.

    Lord Jesus,

    I repent for any sin that I committed that wounded my soul. I know your blood atones for every sin in me, so wash me clean of every trespass, transgression, iniquity , rebellion and every sin of unforgiveness and every sin both known and unknown in the name of Jesus.

    I decree your blood is going back in time to every place that I or my ancestors may have sinned. Send your blood all the way back to the garden and wash away every sin through time in my family line. I apply the power of the cross right now to my soul. I decree that I am forgiven in the name of Jesus. Amen

    Lord Jesus,

    I forgive anyone that has sinned against me, no matter what that sin was. I know my breakthrough is going to come when I forgive. I believe you will bring me into freedom as I walk through this with you. So I forgive every person that has ever hurt me cheated me, abused me robbed me, talked about me, criticised me, or abandoned me. I forgive anyone who has rejected me, hated me, betrayed me, deceived me, or neglected me. I release the power of the cross into every one of these situations and I repent of any unforgiveness that I have held onto and I ask that you would cleanse me of it right now by the power of your blood in Jesus’ name.

    Lord Jesus,

    I decree the same power that You used to heal people in their bodies and their souls lives in me. I’ve been resurrected with You, so dunamis power lives in my spirit. I release it right now into my wounded soul and into my physical body. I decree every wound inside of me that came from sin or trauma is being healed right now by resurrection dunamis power.

    I am excellent of soul, and I have the power to perform a miracle in my physical body. I decree that dunamis is healing every sickness, every disease and every disorder in my soul and in my body right now in Jesus name. Amen

    In the name of Jesus I release dunamis anointing I am carrying right now. Jesus gave it to me so every spirit afflicting my soul, my body and any other part of my life must go now in Jesus name. I decree to every demonic assignment that you must obey my command right now in the name of Jesus. I command you to leave right now in Jesus name, loose me in Jesus’ name, go in the name of Jesus, take with you every disease and every affliction that you put on me. I break your assignments right now in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

    “Lord Jesus, I repent for every time I let myself become offended. I ask that You take your blood and totally wash away my sins of offense. I repent for thinking offended thoughts toward that person. I repent for saying offended words about them. I put Your blood on every thought of offense and every offended word I said about another person. Wash my mind, my heart and my mouth in Your blood. Take away every sinful thought and sinful word with Your blood. Heal me of every sin of offense by the power of Your blood shed on the cross and empower me to never become offended again. Lord, I also forgive that person for being offended at me. Wash them of their sins of offense and cleanse them of that sin so they do not become sick.”
    Step 2
    “Now, Jesus, I ask that You would heal my soul of every wound that was created by my sins of offense. Your blood took care of the sin, and now Your dunamis power will heal the wounds that came from my offenses. Lord, cause me to be what dunamis means: excellent of soul! Fill my soul with this power that comes through Your resurrection! Saturate me with resurrection power! I partake of it now! I command every deadly wound that came from my words of slander and offense to be filled with dunamis. Heal me in both body and soul, Lord. I decree I am excellent of soul, so now cause me to prosper and be in health even as my soul is prospered! In Jesus’ mighty name! Amen.”

    Father in Jesus name I come before you. I repent for allowing the enemy to use my mouth as a weapon against you, against myself or against man. I repent for back biting, for gossiping, for cursing, for shredding people and not speaking love.
    I renounce any association with the enemy in this matter

    And in the name of Jesus, I break the enemy’s power over my life and over my family’s life right now. I loose anyone who has spoken against me, who has cursed me, who has hurt me, who has abused me.

    I am free to love and to serve you. In Jesus name


    As an act of my will, even if I don’t feel it yet, I decide to forgive anyone who has hurt me. I forgive ……..(name all the people)

    I repent for my sin of unforgiveness towards…(say names you can think of). Forgive me Father.

    Even if my feelings don’t feel it yet. I forgive them all.

    Those are the main three prayers I say every week. I have already said them 2 times today and I am on my anniversary trip in Rome! My life isn’t peaches cream. I fight for the peace in my marriage, in my soul, and in my life.

    I will be keeping up with your blog. Please forgive me for not having been a better friend to you. Love you alway.




  2. Ps.

    Remember those crazy Holy Spirit parties we had in South Africa together?!

    Those were the best times!! We should do it again! But this time, in America!!

    Don’t ever forget that fire that filled your soul. It is real. And it can and will happen again. I believe it even if you don’t!!

    Love you always.
