4.3_Healing Physical Memories, Physical Healing & Faith Series – Premium Content

Now that we know physical symptoms are information — that they are the body’s way of communicating a need for healing and what needs to be healed — we can proceed to the how of the actual healing of physical memories.

To heal the body’s physical memories (compacted stress/traumas responses), we listen to and follow the physical symptom in our pop quizzes to 1) the theme emotion, 2) the memory/image(s), and 3) the lie(s) associated with the symptom; and finally to 4) the behavior that the body seems to want to complete from that memory. 

This is part one of Healing Physical Memories, Physically Working through Pop Quizzes in which I offer my own case study to show you how each of these steps, 1-4 above, show up in a real-life unhealed physical memory many, many years afterward.

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Were you able to see yourself in my situation? Have you identified some physical symptoms associated with your pop quizzes? Can you discern the physical behavior your body seems drawn to in the memory? Do you need more light and understanding from the Holy Spirit here? 

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Precious Blood of Jesus, flow through me. Mary, Mother of Divine Love, take the Precious Blood of Jesus to the throne of God, the Father, and offer it in sweet humble adoration, then send it back flowing by the Holy Spirit as a healing of body, mind, heart, and soul. Grant me complete and total healing as I cooperate with you, Lord Jesus, in the healing of my soul and body as you direct. Amen. +
