CARE OF THE SOUL

Materialistic life can be so absorbing that we get caught in it and we forget about spirituality. Many don’t believe in the soul and therefore many don’t give it any place in the hierarchy of values. What we need is soul in the middle holding together mind and body. A spiritual life of some kind is absolutely necessary for psychological ”health”.

CARE OF THE SOUL

Psychology is a secular science while care of the soul is a sacred art. We separate psychology and religion, therapy and spiritual practice. Psychology and spirituality need to be seen as one. Psychology is incomplete if it doesn’t include spirituality in a fully integrated way. When the soul is neglected, our problem doesn’t just go away; it appears symptomatically in obsessions, addictions, violence and loss of meaning.

The emotional complaints of our time that are heard by therapist: 

  • Emptiness
  • Meaninglessness
  • Vague Depression
  • Disillusion about marriage, family and relationship
  • Loss of values
  • Yearning for personal fulfillment
  • A hunger for spirituality

OUR QUEST

All these symptoms reflect a loss of soul and let us know what the soul craves. We cannot solve our “emotional” problems until we grasp the mystery that honors the Divine.

We yearn excessively for entertainment, power, intimacy, sexual fulfillment, and material things. We think we can find these things if we discover the right relationship or job or therapy. We strive to attain alluring satisfaction in great masses, thinking that quantity will make up for lack of quality.

Yet, without soul, whatever we find will be unsatisfying. What we truly long for is the soul in each of these areas. Soul doesn’t pour into our lives automatically. It requires our skill and attention.

We cannot care for the soul unless we are familiar with its ways. We need to make the necessary changes revealed by depression and anxiety. These problems make it felt because the soul needs attention.

ILLNESS AND HEALING

Doctors are learning that there is an actual correlation between psychological experience and physical ailments. For example, one’s colon is unhappy. Doctors know that there is a relationship between repressed anger and colitis. If cancer cell growth has gone berserk, is there something that has been disordered?

The word, “disease or dis-ease” says it all. It means without ease and disease emanates from stress. Disturbances created from marriage and family can be more stressful to the soul than conditions of work.

Modern medicine is hell-bent on cure and has no interest in anything about the soul. Maybe our lives are too secular and in need of such a visitation through the soul. Do we know what can be speaking silently to us in our body? “Recognize what is before your eyes, and what is hidden will be revealed to you.”    Gospel of Thomas Continue reading CARE OF THE SOUL

SLEEP DEPRIVATION

SLEEP DEPRIVATIONSLEEP DEPRIVED?

Do you count yourself in with 100 million Americans who are sleep deprived? The root causes are overcrowded schedules, the desire to accomplish one more thing before retiring and too much stimulation from watching television in bed.

You say that you have a rough time falling asleep. Try an Epsom salt bath, which allows the magnesium to be absorbed into your skin and they will put you into a total relaxation mode.

Sleep and relaxation are basic necessities in life. We need sleep: our body needs time for the liver to start its cleansing process and time to allow the proper production of hormones. When we don’t sleep enough, our appetites become unregulated.

The Great Physician has a prescription, “Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”                             Genesis 2:3

INSOMNIA

Individuals who were extremely obese had higher odds of reporting insomnia than those of normal weight. The prevalence of insomnia among seniors was largely attributable to poorer health, not age. 

One elderly lady had always problems with sleeping. She had been heavily involved in yoga when she was younger. There are some dangers with this practice if one delves into too deeply. We call this an ungodly superstitious belief.  A crack in a person’s spirit is opened to allow an influence from demonic attack. Deliverance is needed!  “…Oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.”                                                                                                            Psalm 54:3

Life stress also kept Canadians up at night, the study says. Nearly one-quarter (23 per cent) of people who described most of their days as being either “quite a bit” or “extremely” stressful reported insomnia.

In the mist of all David’s troubles he still honored and praised God as his protector, his shield, and strength: “But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.”                                                                                                                                             Psalm 3: 3

BRAIN HEALTH CAN HELP!

Your brain is the fattest organ in your body. The human brain is nearly 60 percent fat. We’ve learned in recent years that fatty acids are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s integrity and ability to perform. Continue reading SLEEP DEPRIVATION

DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

GROWING DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

Two of America’s most active exorcists say there is now a growing demand for their services as more unchurched Americans have been turning to them for help with demonic oppression, possession and other dark spiritual activity.

Father Gary Thomas, from The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, and Father Vincent Lampert, in the series “Paranormal Witness” commented that the increase in exorcism was caused by:

  • an expanding spiritual void in the lives of Americans
  • the diminishing authority of the Church
  • the failure of the mental healthcare system

They say an overwhelming number of requests that they get from people seeking help are regularly diagnosed as actual manifestations of demonic attachment, infestation, vexation or full possession. Many of the requests for help are not coming from practicing Christians but the unchurched segment of the population. Many of those who seek help are desperate people who have had no success with psychology and psychiatry.

We’re gaining all sorts of knowledge but there’s still that emptiness within us that is being filled with addictive behavior such as drugs and pornography. There’s a line in the Old Testament that says when one grows in knowledge one also grows in despair. “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.”                                                                                                                 Ecclesiastes 1: 18

The struggle against evil in society is becoming more of an emergency, and there is a direct cause: horror films, books, and television series which create temptation. Reading “occult books,” watching “occult movies,” can expose people to demonic possession. The most common occult activity is using an Ouija board to summon the dead.

DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

The demand for exorcists in the U.S. appears to be following a global trend some say has been inspired by the leadership of Pope Francis in acknowledging the presence of the devil. Pope Francis has warned in past speeches that Satanism is on the rise in the world, and has praised exorcists for combating “the devil’s works.”

More people are finding out about exorcism because of radio programs like “Light in the Darkness.” in the Philippines. Television programs depict exorcism such as Fox’s “The Exorcist”.

DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

The few people, who are possessed, may lose consciousness and they may even speak strange languages. Very well-mannered people may begin to vomit and blaspheme. Some may have inordinate strength.

Most people are not possessed in this way, but they can be influenced by the devil in subtle ways. They feel really bad. There are sign posts:

UNBOUNDED!

Unbounded“Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”                                                                                   1 Peter 5:8

Sometimes temptation is not a struggle against personal weakness, but it is a strategic demonic attack to derail one’s faith. Yet, “Resist the devil and he will flee from youJames 4:7. When we are tempted, God will provide a way out: “And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”                                                                                                       1 Corinthians 10:13

Resisting temptation, repenting of sin, and renouncing the works of the devil and forgiving those who have harmed you account for 98% of all deliverance. Deliverance simple removes any obstacles so we may receive God’s blessing.

Unbounded

 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 Yet, the area of evil influences goes unnoticed and unaddressed in the pursuit of God’s healing. Too many Christians are quickly turning to professional counselors when a problem arises. God wants us to be healed and He wants us to be blessed. His power of deliverance is much greater that that of a gifted counselor.

Over 95 % of most people have no physical manifestation of evil. Yet, most believers will admit that certain areas of their lives are not submitted to Christ. Ironically, many faithful Christians have lived with hidden sins, compulsions, and fear and it never occurred to them that they are in need of deliverance from evil spirits. Of course, there are those who think that they can solve the problem themselves. So, pride prevents those from receiving God’s forgiveness and mercy.

Fear and unforgiveness are the biggest obstacles to being set free. It is the most prominent entryway of the devil: we need to respond to trauma, abuse, and issues involving family and friends. Once an entryway is exposed from this evil world such as alcohol, drugs and pleasure seeking, taking authority is very simple.

During a prayer of deliverance one may be asked to renounce a specific spirit. For example, you would repeat after the deliverer: “I renounce the spirit of unforgiveness, hurt and rejection. I forgive you _____________ or I renounce the spirit of adultery and unfaithfulness.

Then all healing happens when we repent or forgive and turn to God; it is then when we experience His love and acceptance. The interplay between healing and deliverance is integrated. Healing cannot be done unless there is total deliverance.

NEEDING ESSENTIAL DELIVERANCE

Deliverance EssentialTRYING TO MEET NEEDS IN THE WRONG PLACES

In Alcoholic Anonymous  they have a saying for insanity: trying to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. We  are often guilty of insane behavior. 

First we must identify what our real needs are.  For example, caring for children can mask the need to care for ourselves. We can get stuck trying to meet false needs.

There are four essential needs

  • Affirmation: we need to be acknowledged and appreciated.
  • We need to express love: to hug and share.
  • We need to share our emotions and our experiences: what we think and what we feel.
  • We need to grow; we need space and opportunity to grow.

MARIJUANA AS MEDICINE 2

There is no level of marijuana use that is actually completely safe. . even the casual use of marijuana changes the brain. This new marijuana is beyond simple medical use for pain.

MARIJUANA MEDICINE

The adolescent brain — particularly the part of the brain that regulates planning for complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making and social behavior — is not fully developed until the early to mid-20s.

Marijuana also affects brain development, and when it is used heavily by young people, its effects on thinking and memory may last a long time or even be permanent. And a large long-term study in New Zealand showed that people who began smoking marijuana heavily in their teens lost an average of 8 points in IQ between age 13 and age 38. Importantly, the lost cognitive abilities were not fully restored in those who quit smoking marijuana as adults.

IS MARIJUANA ADDICTIVE?

Research has found that 1 in 11 of all marijuana users will become addicted to the drug. And if a person begins using under the age of 18, that number rises to one in six people.  We also know that almost 60% of new marijuana users each year are under age 18.

MARIJUANA, the INSIDE DOPE 2

IS IT GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH?

Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug worldwide, with 5 million daily users worldwide.

Christians in America are facing the challenge of a majority approval of marijuana. A recent Gallup Poll revealed that 58% of Americans now favor its legalization, and 67% of ages 18 to 29 back legalization. Yet when Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12% favored legalization.

By September 2017, there was some form of marijuana legalization in 29 states and the District of Columbia. This massive change has occurred in less than fifty years, and it is a major sign of the seismic shift occurring in our culture—a shift that should concern Christians deeply.

What do we know about marijuana? Is it good for our health? Or can it be harmful and even lead to psychosis? But, most important, how does the Bible deal with it?

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

 

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

Can Mental Illness be HEALED?

THE RIGHT FATS

An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures. If this happens in this short term mental disorder which is easy to identify, it is surely is true of long range disorders like Parkinsonism, which is too difficult to correlate. This discovery is HUGE.

Researchers at Harvard University suggest that omega-3 fats (which are also available in supplements, though food sources are preferred) may disrupt the brain signals that trigger the characteristic mood swings seen with bipolar disorder. If these findings hold true in future studies, omega-3 fatty acids may have implications for successfully treating other psychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia.

Possible therapeutic uses for the ketogenic diet have being studied for various neurological disorders in addition to epilepsy: Alzheimer’s disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), autism, brain cancer, headache, neurotrauma, pain, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and sleep disorders. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source.

More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or have obesity in the United States. In other words, being overweight or obese is the new normal for Americans. Each one of these people carries an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., arthritis and low back pain), cancer, type 2 diabetes, and depression. 

Keto is one of the most effective ways to lose weight rapidly and keep the fat off for good. The keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that is similar to the Atkins diet – except there are no complicated phases to work through, making it a little easier to follow, especially for diet beginners.

The plan is said to cause fast weight loss while allowing dieters to remain satisfied, thanks to the large amount of fat included.

Over 20 scientific studies have shown this diet results in high levels of weight loss.

KETOGENICS

The good fats, or lipids, that work so beautifully in your body-and your brain-are called fatty acids. Essential fatty acids cannot be manufactured in your body so they must come from the foods you eat.

The diet sends the body into a state of ketosis, when the body burns fat for energy, instead of carbohydrates.

The brain does not contain “fat cells”, such as the kind that shrink when energy is scarce during dieting. Yet, if your diet is loaded with bad fats, your brain can only make low-quality nerve cell membranes that don’t function well. Also, all body tissues are affected by loss of nutrients, so in this sense the brain is affected just as the whole body is affected. Continue reading Can Mental Illness be HEALED?
