Finding relief from faulty thinking, unwanted behaviors and dysfunctional relational patterns requires experiential change at a neurological level. While this may sound daunting, it can be understood in that those who make the deepest positive impact in our lives call us out from our norm and create alternate experiences for us in which we experience change. Consider the most enjoyable relational experiences you've had, it is very likely those neurological changes are happening for you without your conscious awareness.
If connection to God serves as one of your primary relationships, and you have a desire to strengthen that bond, healing prayer may be an effective and edifying intervention for you.
Healing Prayer & Spiritual Interventions
Could healing Prayer be right for you?
Often times after processing emotion, wading through painful experiences and reliving the trauma, an effective and powerful way to release pain and receive healing is through inviting the Holy Spirit in to speak His truth. How this looks in the counseling room is unique based on the needs and comfort level of each individual.
Why do we need connection to change?
Attachment styles are relational ways you connect, the way you express/receive love and comfort and how you process emotion. These relational styles develop early on in one's infancy (even as far back as the womb) and are reinforced throughout life. Unless there is an outside experience that is contrary to one's normal mode of operating, the attempts of change will be limited to behavioral efforts at best and futile at worst.
The Power of Connecting with God
Research shows that connection to God can serve as an effective avenue of healing. This connection can override former painful thought and emotional patterns, creating new imprints of comfort and safety.
