Every ailment, whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual is multidimensional. If we have a pain in our abdomen, we experience something physical. We also have mental issues that go along with it, questions and fears about what this pain may represent. It has a spiritual component, am I going to die; what's going to happen to me? In addition, there is an emotional aspect- anger, sadness, hurt, shame, etc. So, we need to address all aspects if we hope to achieve maximum results. That's what Targeted Negative belief replacement (TNBR) does.
We are mind, body, and spirit one unit. What happens in one area influences the other two. Issues are most successfully resolved by understanding what is taking place in each realm and resolving the issues.
Our lives today are shaped by our past experiences going all the way back to conception. From that moment on, our being began recording experiences, feelings, and changes in the. environment. Traumatic events happen to all of us. Trauma is defined as the threat of bodily harm or death to oneself or someone dear accompanied by powerlessness to avoid it. This includes death, major changes, loss, abuse, broken relationships, relocation, natural disasters, accidents, disabilities, war, violence, and illness whether it happens to us directly or to someone we love. If not resolved, these incidences impact our daily lives in many ways in which we may be unaware. For example, the street on which an accident occurred may be avoided. The pain of traumatic events can be healed which can also positively improve our health and quality of life on all three levels.
I believe that we all see through a glass darkly (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV) – even when I think I’m right, I’m not seeing the whole picture; no one is. What is paramount is that I understand that your perspective is different than mine, but we have much common ground with which to work. It seems to me that we all have a distorted view of God. The Western world (in general) sees the individuality of God to the exclusion of the unity of God. The Eastern world (in general) sees the unity of God to the exclusion of the individuality of God. We need both the individuality and the unity in balance. We all can learn from one another’s viewpoints if we take time to understand where the other person is coming from. Truth is truth, no matter where you find it.
