Disclaimer This is not an all inclusive theology class. This is not the only model of presenting root issues of wounding that needs healing. Is an attempt at presenting a compilation of different ideas in an organized way. How it works
Monthly teaching on the 4th Sunday of the month. Interact with others. Homework suggestions given/posted on web to go deeper into the material and walk through healing. Connect with 1-2 others from the class to keep in touch until the next class. Meet in person or via phone to share and pray with each other. (KEEP SHARINGS CONFIDENTIAL!!!!!). Quest for Freedom: ReJuvenate!
Freedom: 1. the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint. 2. Exemption from external control, interference and regulation. 3. Power to determine action without restraint. Rejuvenate: To make (someone) feel or look young, healthy, or energetic again. To give new strength or energy to. To restore to an original or new state.
Prenatal Developmental Hurdle Ericksons Developmental Stages Ericksons Developmental Stages Based on what we know about life before the fall, which life question did not exist?
Who am I? What am I doing here? Where am I going? Can I trust? Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? Is what I do good or bad? How can I make what I do good? Who am I/Am I a product of the world? Who can or do I want to be? Am I can love and interact with others? Does my life count? Can I make my life count? At the end of my life, is it okay to have been me? What do we know about life before the fall?
Which life question did not exist before the fall? Who am I? What am I doing here? Where am I going? Can I trust?
Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? Is what I do good or bad? (There was no sense of good or bad.) How can I make what I do good? Who am I/Am I a product of the world? Who can or do I want to be? Can I love and interact with others? Does my life count? Can I make my life count? At the end of my life, is it okay to have been me? (There was no death.) What was the main source for knowledge, wisdom and understanding to answer these questions in
God original design? Who am I? What am I doing here? Where am I going? Can I trust? (Trust is built on relationship and not evidence. Confidence and faith is in what is what is not always seen in the natural realm but in what God said.) Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? Who am I/Am I a product of the world? Who can or do I want to be? Can I love and interact with others?
Does my life count? Can I make my life count? GOD How does God define Goodness? He declared it with His voice and not based at all on what we do or do not do. Gen 1 Clues: What is important to Him? What is important to God? Original Design and purpose
That we have His authority. Gen 1 To give eternal life. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3. Co-heirs with Christ, Sonship to share in His Glory. the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[f] And by him we cry, Abba,[g] Father. 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are Gods children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirsheirs of God and co-heirs with
Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Rom 8:14-16 That none shall perish. Each is out of slavery of this dark world. What is important to God? Unity with God. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them. John 17:25
To love us. 1 Cor 13.. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me John 17:23 To be loved by us. First commandment. Unity with each other. My prayer is that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one 23 I in them and you in meso that they may be brought to complete unity. John 17:20-23 To love each other. 2nd commandment. Satan wants
His own dominion and was kicked out. Our birthright: authority to rule the world. (Genesis 1) Cut us off from our source of power so we cannot rule and police his activities. Indirectly hurt God by hurting us. Satan Tactics
To Steal, Kill and Destroy The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10 To Accuse 1. Accuse us before God 2. Accuse God before us 3. Us against each other, 4. Us to ourselves. *** For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night... Rev 12:10 To Deceive And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the
whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Rev 12:9 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, Did God really say, You must not eat from any tree in the garden? The woman said to the serpent, We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die. You will not certainly die, the serpent said to the woman. For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was
good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Genesis 3:1-6 What are the entry points of attack? Who am I? What am I doing here? Where am I going?
Can I trust? (Trust is built on relationship and not evidence. Confidence and faith is in what is what is not always seen in the natural realm but in what God said.) Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? Who am I/Am I a product of the world? Who can or do I want to be? Can I love and interact with others? Does my life count? Can I make my life count? All of the above! Gateway to Adam and Eves Downfall Replaced Faith (certain of what we hope for
and evidence of what is not seen (a SPIRIT matter) with Evidence in the flesh(a matter of the SOUL and FLESH) What we do see, hear, touch, smell, taste dictates what is truth. **The Human Soul usurp information from the Human Spirit** (more on this next time). Faith and Believe is now evidence based rather than God based God says to my spirit Question Who am I? What am I doing
here? Where am I going? Am I a product of the myself? Who can or do I want to be? Does my life count? Can I make my life count?
I am a child of God. I am to rule over the earth just like Him. I am made in the image of God. I want to be like my Maker and my Father. My life counts because its significant to God. Fleshly Evidence
I am a child of God. I am suppose to rule over the earth like God but I am not God and dont have the resources He has. I am a human, a created being. I want to be like my Maker. My life will count more if I did it by myself. Hell be proud
of me. Faith and Believe is now evidence based rather than God based Question Can I trust? Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? God says He loves me. His character is trustworthy.
He is out for my good. Its okay to be me. Its okay to ask questions. I have free choice to follow Him. Earthly Evidence I dont know if I can trust him. He is withholding something that looks good, feels good and is good
for food. The evidence is placed before me that I do not have free choice. Adam and Eves Downfall Gateway is passed down to us. Replaced Faith (a Spirit matter) with evidence in the flesh (a Soul/Flesh matter). No evidence = foolish faith. We answer the life questions based on the earthly evidence through our Body, Mind and
Emotions. How God defines things have little relevance. 1. What socio-eco environment were be born into, what physical characteristics I have = how much I, others, God loves me. 2. What is materially available to us. What I have = how important I am. 3. How people treat me = how much Im worth. 4. Ill believe it when I see evidence of it. Words, feelings have little value. Adam and Eves Downfall Gateway is passed down to us.
Replaced Faith (a Spirit matter) with evidence in the flesh (a Soul/Flesh matter). No evidence = foolish faith. We answer life questions based on the flesh. Replace the peace and protection of God the King Judge with 1. Work of a judge. (I am now the lawmaker, enforcer and executioner of judgment). 2. Selfs knowledge of good and evil. Good and evils definition is relative according to each individuals knowledge and conviction. 3. Good and evil is evidence based not God defined.
We become judges based on the Knowledge of Good and Evil Introduced these questions: Is what I do good or bad? How can I make what I do good? At the end of my life, is it okay to have been me? (There was no death.) The answers to these questions are bound by fleshly evidence one has. Ericksons Developmental Stages
Initiative vs. Guilt Is what I do good or bad? 4-5y/o Industry vs Inferiority Can I make what I do good and 5-12y/o acceptable? Brain Facts Trillions brain cells at birth are mostly not connected well. As an adult we have about 100 billion neurons. So there is a trimming process. Brain size at birth is 25% of adult size. Grows to 50% at 9months, 60% at 1 year, 90% at age 3. (80% of total brain growth would have taken place by age 2,
especially growth in the myelination (increasing speed of condition) and cortex (thinking portion) Human Limbic System: Border Structures that supports adrenaline flow, emotional behavior, motivation, long term memory. Main players: AMYGDALA HIPPOCAMPUS CINGULATE GYRUS Associated structures: THALAMUS
HYPOTHALAMUS PITUITARY GLAND Cortex develop later than the subcortical limbic structures. Neuro Changes Myelination (insulates the nerves cells for quicker conduction) Creation/strengthening of synapses. 100,000 synapses are formed per second in the early life through stimulation and interaction with the
physical world. Apoptosis (trimming of obsolete synapses) Pathways Repetitive use creates a path Conversely, what you dont use gets replaced. Freuds Law of Association by Simultaneity
Also know as Hebbs Postulate When an axon of cell A is near enough to excite a cell B and repeatedly or persistently takes part in firing it, some growth process or metabolic change takes place in one or both cells such that A's efficiency, as one of the cells firing B, is increased. Cells that fire together get wired together. What are the developing pathways?
Survival Fight/Flight responses: This really start prenatal (refer to the prenatal series Fight Flight Mechanism: Essential for survival from danger and pain. Amygdala Asks: 1. Arousing (exciting, intense) or
Neutral ? 2. Good or Bad? Amygdala Hippocampus Remember this Respond: Fight or Flight, no other options Whats involved in the middle processing? Long loop: After birth
amygdala has more Survival Fight/Flight information to draw responses: This really from: sound, facial start prenatal (refer to expression, physical the prenatal series proximity. Starts to imprint by learning about own emotions by drawing on others expressions. Mirror neurons. The brain, is a massive computer and much of
the circuits it creates is to be more efficient and create short cuts. Hippocampus carries the files/sub-files of this is this and that is that and we do this for x and do that for y Amygdala is the shortcut on the desk top. Dont care about sub-files and details. Amygdala likes to generalize. Responses there for is generalized. Childhood Emotional Learning
As the child grows and learns, more of the cortex is involve in an emotional event. This process is responsible for new wiring or pruning. There is an appraisal process done by the middle prefrontal and orbitofrontal cortex: 1. Whats the meaning I give to what just happened? (Red flag it?) 2. Is my response good or bad? (based on the response of other peoples facial expression and behavior)
3. Let me look at the details to see if what I did actually applies. Contrasting little nuances. Fine tuning. Emotional Appraisal The appraisal draw also from past memory as filed and provided by the hippocampus. But dissects it for
similarities and differences. The appraisal also starts to draw from logic, verbal, societal norms and left brain rationales as that grows. Everything then gets send back to the hippocampus for filing. Hippocampus creates short cuts for intense, meaningful experiences. But the experiences in the short cuts are filed as a summary. (The full version with details may or may not be filed. Apoptosis, pruning.) Whats filed?
Short loop: Loud noise. Run Long loop(concurrent appraisal): Loud noise, sounds like mom getting upset, (hippocampusmom is scary when she is upset and Ill get into trouble.) Mom is in the next room, Run to the bathroom. Appraisal: Loud noise, Two loud noises. One bang, one is moms voice. Mom dropped a plate and she was screaming b/c she was hurt. Boy was I an idiot for running. She needed my
help. Hippocampus files under I am a idiot and mom is scary when she is upset. With or without all that detail. Appraisal = Judgment based on Evidence Appraisal process is also applied to other responses and actions. Not just asking, Is my response good or bad? Also, Is what I do good or bad? (based on the response of other peoples facial expression/behavior and consequences)
Past memory/experiences (hippocampus). Logic, verbal and left brain rationales (worldviews), societal and cultural norms. We lose either way. If my response is good, that leads to pride. If its bad, it leads to fight, flight, freeze defenses. Self appraisal Fight mode When an event of similar theme occurs: Self appraisal into Flight mode
Internal Judge can go into an escape mode: Internal Judge Is often a splitting image of ones most severe critic(s). (There may be more than one in a persons life. Caretakers, teachers, warped image of God.) Why? 1. Object permanence Jean Piaget: Understand that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be observed.
2. Internalization of the object. (Suppose to be for safety. I am safe at school b/c mom is still there even though I dont see her.) 3. Mirroring neurons. Identification with the abuser. Ex of the internal judger becoming abusive: The internal judge becomes automatic process. With an internal judge at work, the devil doesnt need to work very hard. Eventually we do not even need a big event for the internal
judge to be turned on. The internal judge can bear similarities to our greatest critic or abuser. Self appraisal into Freeze mode Note: Amygdala itself only does fight or flight. Only when the self appraisal comes in does it do the freeze mode due to conflicting information and experiences. Internal Judge can go into an freeze mode:
Ericksons Developmental question answered via evidence and knowledge of good and evil. Yes!! I am good at what I do. I am an over achiever !!! No!! Everything I do sucks. Summary
When Amygdala is triggered, it goes it to a focus mode: Fight or Flight. There is no other way. Once triggered, it will go to the preferred pathway, one that is use most often and burned into memory b/c it was intense. The hormonal cascade (hypothalamic-pituitary axis) causes the body to focus in on certain stimuli and tune out others. Eyes have tunnel vision and ear tune in to only the danger source. Blood flow is stunted to the muscles away from the brain. Even if one attempts to try a different response via a quick analysis by the appraiser/judger, one
cannot find alternate solutions b/c the blood flow to the brain is decreased. Should we get rid of our internal appraiser and judge? NO!! God gave us a conscience and a way to fine tune and learn from our past. The appraiser was tricked into the position of the judge via the knowledge of good and evil.
We need the appraiser to cross out past unhealthy patterns. We need to give our appraiser new things to think about and a fair chance at doing the job. Redefine the job. The job is not to be the judge, enforce that imprisons self and prevent mistakes from repeating. Appraiser job description makeover To ponder the mysteries of God. His ways, His standards, His values, His patience. That should bring some humility and reality check of our own capabilities.
Appraiser needs 1. Bless and affirm the guardian exercise. 2. A new value system rather than the one learned from the world and the caretakers. A new role model. 3. New skills to increase possible solutions options. 4. A calm environment to work in. 5. Time to process. (we need to intentionally set aside time to do this. Is there a different way? Return the amygdala to a place where it does not perceive everything as a threat,
to a place of calm. To a relationship with God were question of Was what I did good or bad does not exist. Do the Emmanuel method and exercises in the previous lessons. Rewrite the scripts that is stored in our hippocampus. To do this, we need to be first aware of what the current script is. Ponder upon what is important to God. Internal Judge can go into an freeze mode: Blessing the Guardian Father God, thank You for creating me in your image. You created in me, a part of my brain center to have a guardian
protective role just like Father God. You are my protector. I appreciate my guardian center for doing the job of protecting me from harms and patterns of harm that developed especially in my early life. My Guardian Center, you are forever a part of me and a part of my brain that sets of the Flight, Flight, Freeze reaction that is essential and God created to keep me safe. You are not designed to carry the roles of the judge, lawmaker, enforcer and executioner. But you are designed carry the heart of the Father. One who is wise and resourceful. One who teaches and discipline but is also kind and compassionate. You are creative in the way you seek solutions. I want to invite this part of me and my brain into my relationship with God. I want to return the judging of spirit matters of faith, hope and belief to my human spirit/original self. That a secure attachment to a loving Father is possible. Jesus sacrificed His life so that connection with the Father is now possible. I want to be like
the Father and to carry His heart of protection. Jesus lift off this yoke of judge, lawmaker, enforcer and executioner. Group sharing Before sharing. Just take a few moments to think about: 1. What are some of the scripts I have wrote up for myself? (Beliefs I have of myself? Vows that Id made?). 2. Why did draw those conclusions? Why did I make those vows? 3. Whats the cost of keeping those vows?
Sharing. One talk and one actively listen (ATTUNE). Listen for emotional contents. Reflect/ paraphrase what you think you heard. Mimic the tone, mood of the speaker. Feel if possible what they are feeling, or think about it from their perspective. Listener, refrain from sharing about yourself. You can ask clarification questions when the speaker is done. Emmanuel Method God may You silence and rebuke and cosmic spirits of interference. Get into a comfortable position. Take a few deep breaths while remember that God is in the air that you are breathing. Let the air flow to the muscles and relax them. When you are relaxed, ask God to bring to your remembrance a time when you had a 5 bar connection
with Him, when the connection was strong and you experienced Him very strongly. If several memories come up, pick one that had the most emotional impact on you. If no memories come up, just think of a time that you appreciated someone for what he or she did. As you look into the memory, remember how you felt, and how your body felt. Remember what you are most thankful and appreciative for in that memory. Bring those positive feels to the now and allow yourself to reexperience it. Ask God to strengthen and deepen the connection. After you feel connected to Him, you can start asking Him questions. What do you want me to know about You? What do you want me to know about myself? What about me is important to You? What script do you want to focus on right now? What does life look like if I am not judging myself by this script of good vs evil? What would life look like if I gave up this script. How do you want to grow me and how are you monitoring it? How will I know if Im on the right track? What you do you have to say about the evidence Id gather to support my script?
Emmanuel Method If what He proposed and giving up the script is agreeable to you, tell Him, God I want to retract and renounce this law and I have written for myself. I want to release my body, spirit, mind, heart and will from slavery and control. I ask my body, spirit, mind, heart and will to forgive myself for whatever harm and burdens that resulted from the judgment of this script. God pull away that prison and set the captives free. (wait for release to be done.) Release my body. (wait) Release my spirit. (wait) Release my mind.. My heart.. My will... What do you want to fill me in those places that have now been emptied out? What does Jesus want me to know. What does Father want me to know? What does Holy Spirit want me to know? Thank You God, show me and guide me in the process. Help me remember this. Other questions you can ask God when you practice the Emmanuel 5
bar connection. Or you can just enjoy the connection without asking any questions. Who am I? What am I doing here? Where am I going? Can I trust? (Trust is built on relationship and not evidence. Confidence and faith is in what is what is not always seen in the natural realm but in what God said.) Is it okay to be me? Do I have autonomy and choice? Who am I/Am I a product of the world? Who can or do I want to be? Can I love and interact with others? Does my life count? Can I make my life count?
