Christians and Flower Essences: Fear of the Unknown | Redemptive Postures Series

Christians and Flower Essences: Fear of the Unknown | Redemptive Postures Series

One thing Christian culture tends to do horribly well is being afraid of the unknown. It seems that anything natural health or quantum physics that doesn't make sense to your average evangelical often gets labeled New Age, without any real understanding of what that term means.While I have not really heard any objections to flower essences, I know that the unfamiliar can raise concerns and I want to help you understand instead of fear. Scripture tells us that we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).So while we do want to be diligent in our research and understanding of alternative health topics (making the unknown known), we don't need to be afraid of anything. It is so sad to think how many good things that God made for our benefit we are missing out on because we are afraid of the unknown.

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

With all the controversy surrounding The Shack, both book and now movie, I've had several people ask me to share my thoughts on it. While I certainly have some thoughts I could share, I find thoughts are often best conveyed by those who have personal experience with an issue rather than just academic knowledge of it. Many have shared their academic knowledge. Few have shared how the book/movie has impacted their story.

Fasting for Body, Mind, and Spirit Health

Fasting has multiple benefits for body-mind-spirit health. The Lenten season from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday is often a time when many people decide to fast leading up to Easter.

Are crystals only for New Age? | Redemptive Postures Series

Are crystals only for New Age? | Redemptive Postures Series

To evaluate whether crystals are New Age or witchcraft, we first need to define those terms. New Age is characterized by monism and the belief that there is no separation. These beliefs result in thinking that all is one and that because all is one, divine is in all. Witchcraft is a complex topic but can be simply defined as physical manipulations seeking a spiritual result.

Can Splankna Help with…?

Can Splankna Help with…?

One of the questions I am most often asked about the Splankna Therapy protocol is, "Can Splankna help with...?" Some want to know if Splankna can help with a physical problem like back pain or thyroid issues; some want to know if it can help with a mental or emotional issue such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD. But what everyone really wants to know is, "Can it bring me the break through I've tried so hard to find?"

Hands down, hands up prayer is an exercise in letting go and receiving. As we enter the new year these days between Christmas and New Year's can be an excellent time for reflection and setting our intention and resolutions for 2017.When we think of resolutions thoughts of hitting the gym, starting a diet, or instituting some new habit come to mind. But what if this year instead of focusing on your short comings and the things you have failed at, you handed it all over the Jesus and asked Him what He has for you this year?

Meridian lines are the system of pathways in the body by which energy flows.

Plants play a huge role in holistic health. The veggies we eat, essential oils distilled from plants, filtering our air, and creating a tranquil environment in our homes all involve plants. Because of this, a rule of interior design I recommend is to have a plant in every room of the house. This may sound difficult, but the benefits are worth the effort, and even the most brown of thumbs can keep some low maintenance house plants alive.

30 Second Habits

30 Second Habits

Yes, you read that right. 30 second habits. Not minutes, seconds. Building habits can be hard.
