For Christians, I look to see what their view of Jesus is. Now, if their view of Jesus is that Jesus is the Son of God, I turn to them and ask them, “Well, then who are you?” And, they say, “Well, I’m also a child of God.” Now for these people, it’s easier to heal because there is no identity issue once they realize who they really are and who the Creator really is: that they are a spiritual being in a body, and that that spiritual being that’s in the body has dominion over the body. Once they realize they have dominion over the body, what can’t they heal?
The other challenge for us is found on page two of Genesis that states, “And behold, everything that was created was very good.” Well, the challenge is that if we see everything that was created as “very good,” you’re more conducive to wellness and to healing. Now, if you believe in darkness, in the power of darkness, or the “fallen angel” and all that, then here is another idea to contemplate: If you give God’s power to darkness, it’s more of a challenge for healing. Let me explain.
Here is the way I look at darkness and I try to see if the patient or client will agree with the idea that there’s only one “Source” or Higher Power. For me, there’s only one power and that’s God. Now, if they believe God is good or God is love, then where does darkness come from?
In response, I usually hear about the story of the falling angel. Well, here’s my theory, whether it’s true or not, whether you believe it or not, whether you want to buy into it or not, I don’t really care. Is my position conducive to wellness? Yes. I believe any dark power is an entity that has tricked us to taking God’s power and giving it away to them, and it’s not our job to give God’s power to anything. If something doesn’t have any power, it cannot harm you. If you do not give it any power, it cannot harm you.
