Decisions - they are the rudder of the boat that steers our lives. The problem is that we don't necessarily remember the decisions we have made in childhood, or those that were made for us by caretakers and people in authority over us. We assume that our foundational beliefs are true and act upon them without ever revisiting them. Unfortunately, some of those decisions and beliefs are destroying us, keeping us hyper-vigilant and stressed, which is why we keep returning to our addictions. Learn how to uncover, review and consciously change those decisions from the viewpoint of an adult, and transform your life in the process.
Life Patterns is all about finding the root of what is causing you stress and resolving the underlying issue. In today's session, I will show you how to heal unresolved memories both mentally and physically, and how to alter beliefs and make life changing decisions that will release you from the stress that has plagued you all your life.
Each day has enough trouble of its own, but now, with the increase of fear for health, safety and economic issues, resilience is a key tool in keeping your righteousness, peace and joy. What is resilience for a Christian? What does it have to do with faith, hope and love?
As a pastor and a counselor, people are always asking me what they should do. As the members of my church repeatedly hear me say, ask, listen and obey. That is because the Christian life is not based on rules and regulations, but on relationship with the One who made us. The right answer today may not be the right answer tomorrow. The Shema is an important biblical prayer shared by Jews and Christians throughout history. "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one, and as for you, you shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." We will discuss what it really means to "shema" - hear and obey, and how to teach others how to interact with God for themselves.
Do you end up with people who treat you badly? When trying to make a decision, are you worried about how others will react to your decision? Are you often afraid that other people will be upset with you if you don't do what they ask of you? Do you feel like there's something wrong with you that can never be fixed? These are only a few of the symptoms of Codependency, and they WILL make you miserable if you don't deal with the root cause head on. Find out what Codependency is, what it is not, how you acquired it, and what you can do to be healed of it.
