Here is another wonderful collection of quotes and scriptures about the war that began in heaven continuing here on earth. Brother Gillespie and his wife, Kylie, have spent much time gathering so much information on evil spirits into one place again. I appreciate their willingness to freely share their work. It is a blessing!
Tamara's Note: There is one paragraph on the last page of this new paper that I do not agree with. Evidently, the Gillespie's are not aware of several quotes by the brethren about females being able to cast out evil spirits by faith. Perhaps these quotes by the brethren were not discovered by Scott and Kylie and not considered in forming their opinions.
I believe that when we consider every word the Lord has given us on the subject of casting out evil spirits, an even broader picture comes to view. Joseph Smith stated, "No matter who believeth, these signs such as healing the sick, casting out devils, etc., should follow all that believe, whether male or female.... If the sisters should have faith to heal the sick,

"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)
This cartoon makes me laugh because I used to be like that fish. I had no idea that we live in an "ocean" of universal life force energy . That fish represents an over-whelming number of people. If we asked the average Christian if they believed in Chi life force energy they would likely answer "no." That is sad and ironic because Christians & Latter-day Saints use several different terms for "life force energy" -- they just haven't realized it yet! Scriptures use a completely different set of vocabulary to describe the same 'foreign'terms that holistic health practitioners use!
She explained that these treatments involved re-patterning the light around a person, which I later found out was called life-force energy. I read dozens of books about this novel avenue of help as fast as I could. One medical doctor wrote, "healing involved a strengthening of the underlying integrity of an individual's human energies and their re-patterning in a healthier way" (Susan Wagner, M.D., A Doctor's Guide to Therapeutic Touch, 29). We found by experience that techniques which cleared and balanced the subtle energy/unseen light enveloping the body were incredibly helpful for my daughter with depression, severe anxiety & mood swings.
The insistence of the spirit led me to this seemingly unusual help. Initially, I wasn't sure of its compatibility with Christianity. Later on, I found prophets comparing life-force energy to
intelligence in the light of Christ. That was incredibly validating! New vocabulary words I had learned such as "Chi"and "prana" suddenly became Christian related terms - no longer cloaked in foreign sounding titles. Additionally, the Light of Christ was also compared by prophets to consciousness. Eventually, that added another health benefiting avenue of study since scholars said higher consciousness, such as forgiveness, could be used purposefully. My family was blessed to learn by experience that forgiveness in all things - is indeed healing to the body.
This site offers several answers to the question, "What else is there?" when seeking health and wellness. It is possible that there are variables involved in healing that one has never even considered before. Traditional medicine generally doesn't practice from the

- I'm very happily married with 5 great kids and 6 grandchildren. I am fascinated by the science behind subtle energy therapies because they made such a HUGE difference for my family. I am passionate about researching how the field of energy medicine fits with the gospel of Christ. I find great joy in being an Energy facilitator myself, helping people make peace with their past, releasing unresolved emotions and bringing light to dark places. I work in the healing arts and know that Jesus Christ is the source of all healing.
