You can prevent Toxic Mullenism

Yes of course I want to see people transformed and living in the victory that God intended.

But it’s possible to become so focused on transformation and helping others, that you become a bit odd and irritating.

Toxic Mullenism occurs when you’ve watched too many of my videos too often.

This week I want to  show you what happens when you think too much about root issues, hidden lies and emotional baggage.

Toxic Mullenism is dangerous

In this video I’ll demonstrate the key symptoms of Toxic Mullenism which you need to watch out for.

Just click on the video and learn the prevention strategies.

To live a transformed life you need to be able to relax, laugh and have fun.

  1. I laughed and laughed and laughed.Still thinking that you two need to do a Conference,at the Embassy.The Embassy of God in Oshawa that is,will be calling my Pastor Craig to see what we can with Scheduling.Kathy

    PS keep up the good work.

  2. What were not supposed to watch them over and over again quoating resolutions to our spouses so they too can have the freedom of emotional release we do? What do I do with all my saved videos? Bless you dear dr. and your lovely beloved.

  3. Great !!! You and Kathy have such a wonderful sense of humour. We do need to relax and enjoy all that the Lord has provided for us … so we can be renewed and continue with the work He has for us to do.

    Thank you so much for your videos

  4. Hi Grant…You and Kathy are something else! Miss you guys when I watch some of your videos! And no, I don’t watch them over & over & over! I’m pretty safe from Toxic Mullenism! Ha! Loved the pickle jar scene!! Blessings!

  5. First born’s are the worst culprits for not knowing how to relax! My favorite things to do to relax are knitting and playing cards with friends. Thanks for the entertaining video!

  6. LOL! This is one of my favorites!

    I can relate to this- I tend to over-analyze everything and sometimes over-spiritualize everything, looking for a deep meaning in everything.

    Your ministry is a blessing, thank you to you and Cathy. The videos are a nice ittle nugget to chew on!


  7. Hi Grant: I, too, for years tried to analize every little thing, and even tried to analize my husband too! Well, you know that does not work. I now wait for the Lord to show me the errors of my ways and try to work my own issues, and not my spouses. It makes for a better marriage! Arlene

  8. I viewed this video its Hilarious Dr Mullen ! Your Wife and yourself are so much fun and funny people who make me laugh well with this video was the funniest so far!

    Your Both a Match Maker in Heaven!

    I loved the video gave me a excellent laugh and smile I haven’t had in a long time!

    Thank you

    by the way what makes me relax I found out I enjoy Bubble Bath and soothing music like the water flowing the sound of nature and making sure the enviroment i live in is not Cluttered and its keep clean that is some examples on how i relax also praying helps me to relax

    Sincerely ,

    Elizabeth and god always bless you both and your family thank you for helping me

  9. My friend has gone through much abuse in childhood and has done many courses, including yours, to help heal and transform. Now onto another course which I am sure God is leading him onto but, all our conversations are constantly about what happened and what God is doing, etc.etc. and most often the same truths are being shared like they are new truths when they have already been covered in other courses. I can’t listen anymore!!! Any pointers on how to share this truth?

  10. This video is way too funny!! I love it!! No, I don’t have anything close to toxic mullenism , thank God. I love to relax by going to the beach, eating chocolate cake and like you said looking at comedies that make me laugh and puts a smile on my face.I have been told by many that I have a great sense of humor and I do believe the Lord has used laughter to help me through many challenges in my own life.God bless you all..

  11. While God is moving I transform as much as I can. (God knows howmuch I can take) When He stops moving there is nothing more to be done but relax and heal. Don’t live in the past use it as a sign post for the future. Today I relaxed by geocaching by mountain bike on trails too much for me. Fell off a bridge once walked my bike atleast 3 times, feelin exhausted but fantastic, Thank God.

  12. Grant — glad to say this new pandemic has not reached New Zealand yet — but we have our bio security ready at all airports checking arrivals now. Come over and see us again sometime — we’ve got the antidote you are looking for —
    love and blessings from New Zealand… kiwidenis

  13. Just learned about ‘Toxic Mullenism’ this morning. Funny video!. Glad I started my day off with it.
    For me the best way to relax is doing my devotions in the morning.
    Thanks for your video. Keep up the good work!

  14. lol-that was great Grant. So true that at times in the healing journey we can get out of balance. I think that at some point in my life even I have suffered from toxic mullenism! But now I am free!!!!
    Was I relax – walking my dog, relaxing on the deck with my tea, enjoying my garden, watching a good movie, a good novel, crocheting-yes crocheting, and remembering to breathe!

  15. I don’t think I have toxic mullenism, but I might have some other kind of toxic because I am always blaming myself for not doing enough (at home, at work, for God…), and I don’t think this is healthy.
    Your video is great!

  16. ha ha 🙂 great new terminology toxic mullenism… i love the diligence of people who are just wanting to be self-aware and free. in chasing after the things of God, restedness is just so core!! which is hard for people who want to “work for it” !!!

    my friend who visited Iris Ministry and Bethel said that the thing that struck her most was that everyone was so *normal* and had such balanced lives and relaxed a lot, but when they poured out in ministry it was always at such a high level. no one can keep running at that pace all the time, and it’s really alright to just leave intense meetings and go home to recover from the holy spirit’s awesome blasting 🙂

  17. Great humour & message. I think it is hard to truly relax sometimes & not feel guilty esp. when self-employed & needing good time management skills (which I’m not too good at). I know I’m relaxed when I can stay in “the moment” – what’s currently happening & knowing how I feel & enjoying myself – without guilt (because I’m so in the moment I’m not thinking about past – negative & harmful stuff, problems, or future, or what else I “should be” doing.) Like watching a good movie, being with someone I really like/enjoy & they are also mostly in the moment without negative talk about anything (esp any “offence” they are holding onto & always talk about – complaining.) This includes talk of their bad “Ex” & what he or she did) Just important, interesting, past or future stuff being mentioned. Ok to let me know of their problems but not as a habit, for them to stay stuck on them, negative & in reverse all the time. Of course being in a good church – Is the best place to be. Also good is joining some Christian singles groups (if single) – out of various churches, re activities & friendships that form & social events to look forward to. (I have a hard time keeping things short).

  18. Thank you for this video. I wasn’t watching your videos over and over but just waiting for the next to come, but what I was doing is constanly thinking and asking what else I need to do to be finally transform and this was putting more pressure and anxiety on me, instead of relax and enjoy the day to the fullest.

  19. Hi Dr. Mullen,

    From a first born who is so glad to have come across your videos from 1997, which I just got from a friend recently, and have enjoyed viewing, to seeing your videos on here, I am blessed. It is good balanced information. I know that when we get good information regarding emotional healing we can tend to go overboard trying to chase people down to help them since it has helped us so much. This video was so great. It is good to see you laughing at yourself, and it will help us all be able to lighten up with ourselves and our loved ones. I laughed a lot. Thank you to you and Kathy for sharing your “Mullenisms” with us. 🙂

  20. Hello, I have watched a couple today including this one. Nice!! Was funny and now have to head off to work … had some self care this morning and talk to friend. Need to laugh some more today too .. hopefully that will happen at work too !!

  21. Haha! Classic!
