Don't miss the new link to a paper titled "Pornography, Sickness, Evil Spirits and the Priesthood" by Scott Gillespie (found at the bottom of Bro. Poulton's Fascinating Paper on scriptures about power over evil spirits).
The book Healing Arts is for sale below here along with my new book An LDS Approach to Energy Healing. Religious quotes on holistic principles are packed inside my first book Healing Arts - A Gift from God (LDS Insight on the Light of Christ & Energy Medicine). My book Healing Arts validates dozens of complementary health therapies for Christians by uncovering how "Chi" life force energy, chakras, meridians and trapped emotions and other principles fit with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

"No, I have absolutely no idea what water is,"
said the fish. "Why do you ask?"
(Eleanor Barrow cartoon in
Quantum Touch by Richard Gordon)
“The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out [toward heaven],’ How could you do this to me?'
“Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied.
The Moral of This Story: It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering. Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God.” (I wish I knew the author to credit them.)
“Working with scientists from Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, it became clear there is a hierarchy of function – the longer the wavelength, the more powerful it is. The longest wavelength measurable is called the Boson and, … it controls the hierarchy. Zero Point is at the top of the pyramid and the Boson creates the descending order of power all the way down to the structural level. This illustrates why therapies using the waves higher up the pyramid (like energy work, prayer, sound healing) so often produce results superior to those at the bottom of the pyramid, where surgery and biochemical therapies reside. It is also interesting that the further down the pyramid you go, the greater the risk to the patient, the higher the cost and the more irreversible the changes.” (Dr. Kenneth West, “Stress Addiction,” Odyssey, Issue 2 2012, p 44)
We come to live in the physical world so that we can grow spiritually by gaining experience and exercising our free will. Many of those experiences involve hardships which can only happen on earth, because Heaven is a place of perfect love, forgiveness, peace, and tranquility. And these hardships are necessary to help us build faith and exercise the gifts God has given us. Each of us is given a mission to accomplish while we are here, but we are also allowed to select some of the challenges that will bring us growth.
The angels help us choose our experiences, because what we choose must fit with our mission and with God’s overall plan for our lives... They explained that the more difficult a challenge was, the more knowledge and wisdom and love it could bring. I knew that it would be pleasing to God if I dealt with many experiences in a positive way, so I began selecting all kinds of challenges.
While I was in Heaven, I never saw anyone who was depressed, maimed by an accident, or suffering from disease. Our spiritual bodies are always healthy and whole; they are perfect, and our spirits shine with a radiant beauty. Our physical bodies are only a temporary home for our spirits, and nothing can truly harm who we really are. So when I selected my earthly experiences, I had no concern for what they would do to my physical body. I knew that the more I suffered for others, or because of others, the more I would grow in spirit. And with that knowledge, I had a completely different perspective on adversity and the experiences I chose for my own life.
The angels explained to me that an illness or accident triggers a chain of events that can lead to spiritual growth. Some spirits choose a life of extreme sacrifice or nearly unbearable suffering. The light of God shines brightly around these people, and in Heaven they are thought of as mighty spirits, because they come to earth to suffer so that others can grow in understanding and love.
Some mighty spirits choose to be born with severe disabilities such as blindness, deafness, mental illness, Down’s Syndrome, and others. Some choose to be paralyzed or disfigured or disabled later in life by an accident. Others suffer a life-threatening illness such as cancer, or Alzheimer’s. And many brave spirits choose to be born into alcoholic or drug addicted families, or into abusive homes where they suffer and sometimes even die from abuse.
Many of these people who suffer from such challenges live their lives thinking they are inferior or unworthy of love because they look different or don’t have the same abilities as most people, or because they were the victims of abuse. But the truth is that they are mighty spirits who denied themselves and have come to earth to help others grow.
When we see a child who is confined to a wheelchair because of a problem with his or her muscles or nerves or brain, we feel compassion for the child. But the deeper truth is that this individual had compassion for us first, having chosen their condition to help us grow. When we think we are helping the disabled, we are really helping ourselves by learning selflessness, charity, and how to demonstrate our love.
These courageous souls chose their conditions in order to inspire love, compassion, caring, patience, or forgiveness in others. They also suffer to gain experience and knowledge that will help others who face similar challenges, or to help improve conditions by raising public awareness. Like Jesus, the mightiest Spirit of all, these souls suffer in our place so that we can learn, experience, and grow without bearing the same cross they carry.
In Heaven, everyone who chooses to be born on earth is thought of as a courageous spirit. It’s not easy to leave the peace and love of Heaven for the hardships and strife of earth. ..It often takes adversity to shake us up and help us grow, but God wanted His children to be happy in their earthly lives, too. After choosing my life experiences, I was told to also have fun while I was here. This life may be a ‘vale of tears,’ but it is also supposed to be a time of joy. And how much joy we experience is up to us.
When we realize that we, ourselves, chose many of the difficulties in our lives, and that all things happen for a reason, we begin to let go of earthbound thinking. We can give up the crutches we use to fill the emptiness in our live-alcohol, drugs, money, meaningless sex, prestige, and power. When our eyes are opened, we begin to see things as they really are.
We begin to understand that life isn’t cruel or unfair, but is a spiritual journey that leads us to meaning and joy and real happiness. Knowing the truth about ourselves sets us free to be the happy, loving people God wants us to be.
