Hurt to healed to helping
My parents didn’t have children for nearly a decade into their marriage.
My father didn’t want children. My mother desperately did.
My mother stopped taking birth control, and my brother was born; then surprise! I arrived a little over a year later in October 1975.
Upon my first sozo healing session, a wonderful Christian counselor began asking me about my conception story.
Wait, whaaatttt!?!? Who wants to go “there”?
I shared as much as I knew of my parents’ volatile relationship and with the help of my counselor, I put the pieces together: I was born tangled in a lie–one where lust, deceit, and abuse were a way of relating. I was unwanted and rejected before I even took my 1st breath outside of my mother’s belly.
Clare, my counselor pointed out that like David, I was conceived in sin.
“I was brought into this world in sin.
In sin my mother gave birth to me.”
As she tenderly guided me to back to the place of my first wound of rejection, she helped me replace lies with Truth and sin with grace. This led me on a journey of discovery of who God was, who God is, and who I am in Him!
As I continued on my journey of healing through over the years, I’ve learned that if a pregnant mother experiences trauma during her pregnancy the blood supply to the fetus is restricted to ensure the mother’s health can be protected. As a result, the baby enters the world with a feeling of lack and scarcity. (I tell more about this in my most recent podcast; click here to listen.)
I’ve experienced much healing from my childhood trauma which can only be found through genuine affection and love from Our Father. But how blessed I am to have had others serve as a conduit of that healing!
As we embark upon this Holy Week, if you feel you are in need of a healing of wounds of yesteryear and want to experience Our Father’s Love in a newfound way, I invite you to attend a free bonus teaching in our membership group, Lighten Up Lifestyle, Monday, April 11 @7:30 PM EST with my friend and counselor, Clare. Clare will lead us through a sozo activation where we will replace lies with Truth and sin with grace! Hope to see you there, for it is by His stripes, we are healed! Is 53: 5
Have a most blessed Holy Week
