Resolving Emotions to Resolve Disease: Healing The Wounded Spirit (A distinctly Christian perspective) Dr. Nick Eno President & Chief Executive Officer Nick Eno And Associates
Overview This seminar will explore an essential ingredient in resolving emotional disease which is missing from traditional psychiatry/psychology.
Overview Christianity generally posits that human beings are comprised of three broad components.
Trichotomy Are spirits Possess a soul Live in a body Human Beings…
The Lodebar Syndrome Marked by: Isolation Self-condemnation Secrecy Resistance to Love
Vows Definition: solemn promise or pledge, especially made to God or a god, dedicating oneself to an act, service or way of life (Websters) Vows are major obstacles to restoration.
Vows “The only place outside heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all dangers and perturbations of love is HELL.” – C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity)
Clinical Manifestations Relationship Problems Fear of intimacy Lack of trust Emotional Vampires If we are afraid to surrender to love, we imprison our hearts in rigid cages; so they are protected but not free.
Clinical Manifestations Personality Distortions Failure to accept ourselves We become “other”
Clinical Manifestations Give In – Avoidant – Dependent – Obsessive/Compulsive
Setting Captives Free The Great Exchange – Repentance, Renunciation, Resistance (Active) – Forgiveness – Practice virtue of self-acceptance
Summary Most, not all, emotional diseases originate from assaults to the heart – or core – which is the spirit.
Summary The spirit cannot be medicated but can be healed through the mediation of a human vessel yielded to God’s power.
