Energy Medicine sounds unconventional, is it ok?
Energy Medicine sounds so unconventional. Is it really okay? How many times in Sunday School have we heard the amazing story of Amanda Smith who lost her husband and a son in the Haun’s Mill Massacre? She found another son severely wounded with his hip blown away. Amanda knelt down and pled with the Lord for help asking Him to direct her with what to do. A voice gave her step- by- step directions so that the Lord could make her son a new hip. (Our Heritage pg 47-48) The answer wasn’t anything "conventional." The procedures may have sounded strange. Yet, surely we believe this story is true and that a novel approach was indeed what was needed. I doubt that people back then went around whispering how strange and untraditional the methods she used to treat her son were. I believe they rejoiced that the Lord through the Spirit gave her the wisdom to help heal her son in a manner previously unknown and certainly not understood. We have the same options today. I choose to rejoice that new options are available today!
1 Nephi 17:41 says, "...he prepared a way that they might be healed; and the labor which they had to perform was to look; and because of the simpleness of the way, or the easiness of it, there were many who perished." God is just. Since He prepared a way for the Israelites to be healed, we can be assured that the Lord has also prepared a way to help us today! The question is, do we have enough faith to believe that He will help us? We are to liken the scriptures to ourselves. "Behold, he was spoken of by Moses; yea and behold a type was raised up in the wilderness, that whosoever would look upon it might live. And many did look and live. But few understood the meaning of those things, and this because of the hardness of their hearts. But there were many who were so hardened that they would not look, therefore they perished. Now the reason they would not look is because they did not believe that it would heal them. O my brethren, if ye could be healed by merely casting about your eyes that ye might be healed, would ye not behold quickly, or would ye rather harden your hearts in unbelief, and be slothful, that ye would not cast about your eyes, that ye might perish? If so, wo shall come upon you; but if not so, then cast about your eyes and begin to believe in the Son of God..." (Alma 33:19-22)
