ChRxtianity and Yoga

After so many exhausting exchanges on facebook about this subject I felt it was time to write a single article that I can post as a response so I can spend my time and energy on other things. I wrote 10.5 pages on this subject in the Getting Well God’s Way book (link below) but I live in a world where ideas have to be served in many measurements. Some people won’t read a 360-page book, or even 10.5 pages, so I’ll scale this down and hope more Christians will at least read an article.

I used to be a “preacher’s kid” for many years of my young life but my Dad left the pulpit when I was 11, and my parents got a divorce a few short years later. I had several PROFOUND spiritual experiences in those years as a child not knowing how bad I would need to KNOW that God was real when I grew up. After the parents divorce, we never went to church again and it was time to figure life out on my own. This included a ten year detour into “sex, drugs, and rock n roll” because that’s where “lost” people went in the 70’s and I, and my siblings, were no exception.

That “detour” reached it’s peak when I walked in on my fiancé’s suicide and became a murder suspect at 25 years old. I wasn’t living right but I sure didn’t murder anyone. I was staying with my mom and stepfather during this ordeal. I was alone A LOT during the day almost disbelieving the drama that continued to unfold. In the stillness, there were many supernatural things that happened to help me get back on track with God and I finally fell to my knees and cried out humbly, “You know I didn’t do this. In fact, You’re the ONLY ONE who knows I didn’t do this. If you’ll get me out of this mess I’ll surrender the rest of my life to You for Your express purpose…”. A few months later I was exonerated by a Judge named Myron Love. Literally, JUDGE LOVE, set me free to have another chance at figuring out this life. What came out of this was a consciously-indentured servant. Once I knew God was involved in my story I began to beg him every moment of every day for six years to “Use my life. Make it matter that I came through this planet. Write a story that will help mankind see what You want us to see!”

About a year later I would learn that my deceased fiancé was involved in organized crime. The “bosses” apparently didn’t like me and told him he couldn’t marry me. In retrospect I could understand why I was perceived as a threat. I was a “researcher” personality and ran public records for oil companies, brokers, and lawyers. His previous wife was “retail oriented” and didn’t even have a driver’s license, and that’s what they preferred. God made it known to me that He spared me!

It was likely in the 7th year of my yearning that I began to notice synchronistic events that could only be happening via the Holy Spirit. It’s like the spiritual world was becoming more and more engaging. I had married and had a baby when I began having some major health issues. We’d begun attending church as a family and I was enjoying this new phase of life UNTIL it became clear that my health issues weren’t going to be resolved in accordance with their teachings on health and healing. They routinely prayed that “the doctors would have wisdom in their diagnosis and treatment of” the person, and that’s about it. They’d brought in Coke machines, and junk food flowed like a river at most church socials. You couldn’t tell the difference in our tables and the non-church goers at the skating rink. We were living just like the world, in blatant contrast to what our own Bible teaches us. After 11 doctors in 18 months I was worse, much worse and the church folks assumed I had hidden sin that would explain why their prayers for the Rx-writing doctors they presumed I would see didn’t work. Another idea was that I simply didn’t have enough faith. I knew neither of these were right. “Healings” weren’t common and still aren’t. Yes, they happen but if you don’t know how to support health how will you maintain a healing if God gave it to you? Do MOST people have hidden sin or is there something else God wants us to see? That question began my departure from the approved ways of modern ChRxtianity. I canceled all my pending medical tests and follow-up appointments and began chasing God for THE TRUTH!

Six months went by and I was even worse than before but I reasoned that I was getting worse under the care of almost a dozen doctors so why not just continue to wait on God? And so I did. One day I prayed what I deemed my “Final Prayer”. If He didn’t show up this time, I wasn’t going to ask again but would assume that I wasn’t supposed to get well and would begin preparing myself and others for the idea. People do die from disease after all. Maybe I was going to be one of them. I began the prayer and ended up having a supernatural experience in my living room, on my knees beside the couch, detailed in the Getting Well God’s Way book. THIS MOMENT was the kickoff to what has been over 30+ years of God training me, and writing the story He wants us to hear. That’s likely why four grown men admitted to dropping to their knees in tears when they read the “powerful” introduction; a few women too. One reader adamantly calls it “THE LORD’S BOOK penned by you” because she sees it. One woman had a 2-hour healing encounter with God while reading it because it’s that kind of book if you’re ready. She made a video of her story you can see here: https://gettingwellgodsway.com/2018/10/26/reader-shares-her-miraculous-healing-spiritual-experience-of-reading-the-book/

As it turned out it was the mercury dental material in my mouth that was slowly killing my thyroid and making me MORE antenna-like, therefore more vulnerable to the effects of the electric substation 250 yards from our home. Recent events in my story lead me to suspect that’s why the couple who lived about 100 yards from it had a stillborn baby and why the previous wife had fertility issues and then I developed them and then the renter who came in next also developed female problems. This “Profits Matter More Than People” CULTure where corporations are in bed with government oversight agencies should’ve been revealed by your pastor/shepherds so you could avoid the traps and pitfalls. So many toxic substances are now in our food, air, water that you HAVE TO have knowledge to steer around it. Producers have held us in debate mode, schmoozing politicians, while hiding evidence of harm for far longer than you can imagine and some pretty devastating things have been moved into the market that shouldn’t be here. THIS is why you can’t simply go forward for a magic prayer, get healed, and return to your toxic life. WE NEED KNOWLEDGE NOW to get well and stay well.

The typical modern ChRxtian approach is wholly inadequate now to meet the health needs of congregants. After God drug me through three decades of learning I can see that today’s pastor/shepherds, and even the ordained medical world, are completely incapable of guiding their congregants to health. They need to understand who this medical world serves now and teach their congregants how to get well and stay well so they can stay out of this sick loop. I had developed a full blown autoimmune disease known as Hashimoto’s, which just makes you SICK. Many systems of the body were being affected. Immunity, fertility and female issues, digestive issues…It wasn’t “hidden sin” or “lack of faith”. I had to do my own research and reading, then fight the doctors training and show them books written by other doctors to get the help I needed. They were giving me a T4 medicine which is raw thyroid which has to be converted to T3 to become an active hormone. My low body temperature alone meant that conversion wasn’t possible but they had yet to learn this. Thirty years later, you STILL have to go to an Alternative Medicine or Functional Medicine doctor to get this kind of detailed approach to thyroid wellness. Traditional doctors are still passing out T4 meds but as they say “If you aren’t part of the solution. There’s a lot of money to be made prolonging the problem”. You can learn more about Functional Medicine and Find a Practitioner at this link. As with anything else, be prayerful in your search for a provider. Who you meet and who meets you can be important on your life journey: https://www.ifm.org/

We moved away from that substation to a large ranch as caretakers for 5 years and it wasn’t until 2005 that I’d have those mercury fillings addressed by a properly trained dentist. I just didn’t get how important that was FOR ME, until I had it done. You can learn more about this and search for a dentist at the following link. DO NOT USE JUST ANY DENTIST FOR THIS PROCEDURE: https://iaomt.org/

And again, be prayerful!

I was being poisoned by mercury, an abnormal dose of electric and magnetic fields, a “modeled by the church folks” diet prolific with chemicals, and again mainstream medicine was found deficient in the knowledge I needed and quite “chest bumpy” about perfectly logical questions I’d ask. Like, “How did I become infertile?” while pointing to the 9-month old standing between my feet. That should’ve triggered a question in their minds about what changes had taken place in my life in the previous 18 months but it didn’t. They seem void of simple curiosity and wear their ego on their sleeves. They’re frankly not equipped to get people well in this modern age. I later learned that some people have a genetic mutation or genetic marker that makes them more vulnerable to toxins. Our bodies like to hold on to them, especially metals. As previously written, most of this knowledge had to be found amongst “Alternative Medicine” practitioners as mainstream doctors are clearly not much more than a pill dispensary now and I think a computer could do a better job. Insurance only pays for things the doctors they want you to see offer. I learned that if I wanted to get well I’d have to pay cash and go see the doctors that were out of the box.

The doctors were irritated because they didn’t know the answers but were too proud to say so I suspect. As a practitioner, I came to see that it’s very important to examine a person’s diet, lifestyle, relationships, and the health of their environment, electrical and otherwise, to determine the cause of disease so it can be arrested and healing can begin. We live in a self-healing organism but you have to cooperate with it’s needs. For instance, we have these new-fangled electric meters in use here that are making people sick and killing people and the doctors have no clue until they hear from someone like me. You can’t see the current, taste it, or smell it but you can measure it on a safety meter. And just like carbon monoxide, it accumulates in your body and it can kill you. Never have we had this much electromagnetic radiation pointed at us from so many sources in a chronic exposure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. NEVER has this been done. People asking for prayer likely NEED measurements taken with safety meters and filters placed on the lines. And even if they were to experience a miraculous healing, then they’d return to their toxic electrical environment ignorant of why that’s an issue. Jesus often said after many healings He performed, “Go and sin no more or something worse may come upon you.” He was clearly a fan of finding causation, and fixing the root cause.

I have more to teach you but you aren’t ready.” These words of Jesus before He left Earth should be a clue that we have more to learn and we should therefore be teachable, be listening, and perhaps even expect the information to be unfamiliar, weird, and even contrary to our preferences and that’s where the subject of yoga comes in.

I’ve seen over several decades now that the pastors weren’t going to go do what I did to find out why their congregants were sickly. They weren’t going to FAST, PRAY, and CHASE GOD DOWN. They were clearly running a religious business that fit into The Media Machine, The Pill Pushers, the Insurance Game and were only interested in health concerns of congregants because they “should”. They recite a sincere prayer and hope for the best and that’s all they have to offer. Seems to me the priests of the Old Testament were in charge of the spiritual and physical health of the people and spent their life in training. Most pastors today run through a seminary school sponsored by who knows who, and ta-dah suddenly they’re supposed to know everything about health and healing or have magic in their limited prayers? I was foolish to sit under this way for as long as I did. Ultimately, this way, has led their flock directly INTO the world’s system because they had no KNOWLEDGE to help them. Had I not been a person who doesn’t REQUIRE the approval of others I wouldn’t have made it past this social system that scorned me for even questioning “their way” much less finding answers that didn’t fit their “approved” ideas. We have to understand that warm, fuzzy, feel good “religion” can bring our defenses down so our KNOWLEDGE needs to increase so we aren’t walking around in blind hope and ignorance.

I think it’s important for you to see some basic statistics that will help you see what God sees. “The US makes up 5% of the global population but consumes 70% of the global Rx drug supply; 80% of the opiates. The US also claims to be a “Christian nation”, 73 to 88% (2014 stats). Can you see the subset there? That’s a lot of Christians taking drugs, thus my new spelling as ChRxtian! Sadly, this new version of “church” brought in Coke machines, junk food, and salivated to have Rx-writing doctors attend so they could put them on the board. They rejected biblical knowledge, simple wisdom, messengers sent to warn, and promoted ONLY this pharmaceutical approach to wellness. GOD SEES THIS and isn’t happy and yet the message I receive loud and clear from ChRxtianity is that they’re more comfortable with me taking an opiate than going to a certain form of exercise where no gods are even mentioned or imaged or anything else. THIS is a huge reason this CULTure is under medical tyranny, threatening your job if you don’t take a shot made by their buddy they gave legal immunity to. This pharma industry didn’t usurp their power, it was given to them by the ChRxtian consumers. I think Christianity needs to take an internal review of what they’ve become. I suspect this puts them in line for harsh judgment according to the last entry in the bullet list below.

The list below is from Zondervan’s Dictionary of Bible Themes which lists the attributes of a “false religion” as the following:

  • it ensnares it adherents,
  • offers no help in time of need,
  • prevents people from finding the truth,
  • it devalues, degrades and defies,
  • leads to immorality,
  • enslaves,
  • receives the full force of God’s anger.

With ease, I can argue the first three are met from my experience in the modern churches. I was sent to the dead end of modern Rx medicine, and when that way failed, I got accused of being the problem and offered no other help.

There’s a subtle but effective way of encouraging people to stay inside a particular set of ideas and an unspoken threat towards anyone who doesn’t recite the approved ideas. I was made to feel tolerated for not going along with “their way”. Had I been a person who REQUIRES the approval of others this absolutely could’ve prevented me from finding the truth and I’m certain it has for people with lesser backbone.

When the church folks socially dismissed me for taking a different path they absolutely devalued me, degraded the importance of the journey GOD was taking me down, and defied His authority, the truth of His word, as well as logic, wisdom and understanding, which He’s a big fan of, and blew off one of His SENT messengers.

This way has resulted in many professing Christians being put on Rx drugs they may never get off of, may be harmed by, and which have NOT been studied the way they’re dispensed = ENSNARED, when God’s Ways promise healing and blessing and health!

How does it lead to immorality? Well it directs the congregants to put more faith in the human medical system and because Christians are such a large demographic it has built this industry into a system that now has enough clout to FORCE injected substances into people and their children under threat of unemployment or not getting needed therapy or surgery.  This is being done by a group who’s been given complete legal immunity from any harm from these injections and the government NEVER DID THE SAFETY STUDIES over a 30-year period that were the condition of this legal immunity for childhood vaccines.  Every single manufacturer has plead guilty to fraud! This includes submitting fake data to the FDA, tampering with test samples, bribing doctors, deception and more yet they’re still in business.  One of them, Glaxo-Smith-Kline actually held a study in Argentina, a very poor country, where they falsified parental authorizations and fourteen babies died.  Instead of fourteen counts of murder they were fined $100,000. THIS IS WHO YOU’RE SUPPORTING INSTEAD OF TRUE HEALING PRACTITIONERS!

It was fall of 1993 when God revealed that He wanted me to attend massage therapy school through yet another profound spiritual display that left nothing to question. My little Christian self stuck out like a sore thumb in that class but some wonderful encounters took place in that intimate training. That educational exposure in massage school laid a foundation in knowledge of the human body, its systems, and function, and methods of healing that I’d never known of. All kinds of therapeutic methods that actually ignite healing in the body that have been around for a very long time but you don’t see them on television because television has become nothing more than a marketing and brainwashing tool for mainstream floaters. Floaters being people who don’t think, ponder, or question, they just go with the flow to their own peril even. The Machine works “ideas” into the story line of comedies and serious movies to direct the consumers to the avenues they want them to go. It’s not common to see ads for alternative medicine doctors or see ideas of people being healed by non-pharma methods worked into story lines of movies because all the players in THE MACHINE are playing toward the same goal.

Sixty days after I finished massage school, I fell 12 feet from an unrailed bridge into a shallow river below while cycling with a friend. I suffered a compound fracture dislocation of my spine at T12/L1. My x-rays showed me to be a paraplegic. Like most things on this “God walk” this event was preceded by a premonition and visitation nine months earlier that was written in a journal. This too is detailed in the Getting Well God’s Way book. This too was a common trait of walking with God. He didn’t just expect me to trust that it was Him choreographing these events, HE WANTED ME TO KNOW IT AS FACT!

There was such immense suffering during this part of my journey that His grace, though deeply appreciated, still wasn’t enough to calm me. I honestly didn’t know the human body could hurt so bad for so long and you aren’t allowed to die. JUST HURT EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY, EVEN WHEN SLEEPING! Eventually we moved to Austin, TX, a very health-minded city. I was surrounded by alternative health practitioners and saw many of them, and again learned more about the human body that couldn’t be learned any other way. I didn’t do a lot of “sampling” of ideas. When you’re on a “Spirit Led” journey you don’t get to drive. You sit in the proverbial back seat and wait to be taken to the next step. At least that’s the way I did it. I say this because I want you to know that although I was DESPERATE to get out of pain, I was even more DESPERATE to stay in the story that was being written through my life by God, as I had agreed. IT WAS HARD! IT SEEMED UNJUST, UNKIND OF GOD, and yet I KNEW…I KNEW HE WAS WRITING A STORY and changing me in the process. IT WAS BRUTAL but the idea that God was directing this couldn’t be denied. Therefore, I didn’t have much say in the timing of when He revealed the next piece but I knew it was being measured out for some reason. All I could do was trust and wait.

In the book, I go into the details of what I did to reverse the Hashimoto’s Autoimmune, the Advanced Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease, the debilitating fibromyalgia episodes that feels like all of your soft tissue is inflamed all over the body at the same time. It’s a sort of manual on getting well but it lacks the specific emphasis to a person in the torrents of pain. I don’t think I can avoid creating a course, book, or something on all the steps that were taken to not live plagued by pain for much longer. It’s a matter of fitting it in. This opiate epidemic that was killing 128 people a day is a key indicator that the market is crying for a method to address pain. After I came out the other side of this “Spirit Led” experience I realized that the combination of things it took to get me well doesn’t even exist in the medical world. Only God could walk someone out of that complex issue. Medical school doesn’t have this knowledge because they’re trying to sell pills and have little idea how to heal the body. If you go ask The Creator, BE TEACHABLE, and seek guidance, it will be provided. Jesus said before leaving Earth “but because I go the Spirit of Truth will come and teach you all things”. I believed that to be true and still do.

Again, I can only guess why God did what He did in the order He did it in. I don’t know how He does a lot of the little miracles He’s able to arrange but this “waiting on Him” has always seemed like a good way to participate or stay out of His way, not running ahead of Him trying to solve your own problem.

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles…

I had gone to a physical therapy rehab center for six weeks and recognized how much the stretching helped my body avoid or deal with pain. I didn’t have insurance but was gifted a scholarship immediately after the injury. After I left there we didn’t have the money to continue with a physical therapist. I was getting massage and trading with other practitioners to pay for the body work. I had tried Pilates, lots of gym time, 1+ mile walks, when money got better I was able to afford sessions with an advanced myofascial release practitioner. At $125 a week this wasn’t a sustainable option. Losing the quad muscles and having a knee cap drop meant that my left glute was very weak and the entire left side of my body began to slide. Losing it’s lateral support this meant my neck, shoulder, arm…everything began to hurt and this wasn’t going to be an easy fix. How do you put a shelf support IN the body?

Early in my return to church as a young bride and mom, a young man stood up across the room and “repented” for going to a yoga class. I thought that was odd but I’d never been to a yoga class before so I shrugged it off and went on with my life. Knowing that A LOT of what they do in Physical Therapy is stretching you in a safe way I began to contemplate affordable options, but there aren’t really any “stretching studios” and because Christianity apparently disapproves of going to yoga, I suffered. I suffered, and I suffered, and I suffered UNTIL one day I hurt so bad that I no longer cared what ChRxtianity approved or didn’t approve of. After all, in my view, they had brought Coke machines and junk food to the churches and only acknowledged a Rx-writing doctor so why was I letting this same group have a say in this?

I was at the end of my rope, so I went to a yoga studio, and yes I asked God BEFORE I did. All I felt was a stillness. It wasn’t a warning or a “no ma’am” as much as it seemed like He wanted me to find my big girl panties and go in and inquire as if wanting to see what I would do. He does seem to be a fan of bravery. I walked in and saw these women glowing. As I signed in and paid my $15 I told them “I’m under so much stress and in so much pain that if I don’t find a way to deal with it, I don’t think I’m going to finish the race…And I don’t see this ending for another year.” They smiled knowingly, and said “Welcome to yoga” as if they had a secret.

I was in so much emotional and physical pain at this time that I was literally vibrating every waking minute. The relentless pain, sleep deprivation, and the combined soul sadness of watching my 25 year marriage die, knowing I couldn’t save it and that the collateral damage would be severe was more than I could bear. I cried every class for two years because it shoved energy through my walled-off broken heart, but you know what, I got emotionally stronger by learning to look at myself in the mirrored wall in “Warrior” pose, and I GOT WELL. It broke up scar tissue that had crippled me in pain for 11 years and it kept me from having a complete breakdown emotionally, and gave me tools to prevent a life of pain. As a massage therapist, this method made perfect anatomical sense. I had learned a method to address the myofascial system on my own and had some remarkable healing experiences doing so. This system is one major place where trauma is stored and this body, mind, and spirit had been through some major trauma in many forms.

Cranio-Sacral work was another method that unleashed profound healing mechanisms in the body. I took a Level 1, 4-day training on this one system. It took 2 days for me to learn to feel it. Once you feel it, WOW! Then you can learn how to help it achieve optimum function and break up blockages in a system that the Rx pill world doesn’t even understand or acknowledge so the likelihood they’ll refer you to a practitioner is slim to none. They don’t teach this stuff in Rx-writing medical school. Sadly, they’re being trained to sell pills, which blinds them to so many other options. The Media Machine sells you on ideas and then off you go not realizing they have a financial interest invested in where you go. They’re being paid to send you the way they’re sending you! The pill pushers buy ads on television and you sit there watching it and assume that’s all that’s available. It’s not! There’s an entire alternative world of healing out there but you have to go looking for it because those practitioners and providers aren’t big fans of the marketing machine. In fact, it’s a system that uses it’s power to abuse and threaten them. You’ll also need to pay for it because most of them don’t play the insurance game either. You know, the one where the practitioner is paid half their rate and has to chase that down for six months to get paid? Yeah, they don’t much care for that game either. As a practitioner, I can tell you that the less people have personally invested in their recovery the less they show up for themselves. Our system has turned everyone into some form of zombie waiting on someone to come save them so they don’t have to think or act because they’ve been trained to expect some preacher to pray a magic formula prayer or a doctor to give them a magic pill. Maybe it is that flicker rate of the television putting you in alpha brain state…more passive, while you watch their “programming”. Fortunately, I’ve learned by now that I AM MY BEST ADVOCATE and that includes my heavy preference to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide me to where I need to go to get the answers I need. Humans have not performed well in that category of my life and this includes pastors, doctors, and well-meaning Christians.

FIRST, all yoga isn’t the same! It has branched out into more of a medical and therapeutic emphasis under many titles, BECAUSE it does what other methods can’t do. Below is a perfect example of this in pictures and story if you choose to click the link above the picture. ChRxtian ideas today claim that “Christians shouldn’t do yoga” because they are unknowingly bowing to Hindu gods. I asked God about this and He replied, “Only if that is your intention. You have to submit yourself to it as an intended spiritual practice and focus on Hindu or Buddhist gods. Likewise if your life of devotion is that of a Christian then that is your focus”. I got to thinking about the Christian saying “Going to church won’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car”. Okay, then why doesn’t this ideology apply to yoga? Going to church won’t make me a good Christian but somehow going to a yoga class makes me accidentally become a Hindu? Clearly there is more to it since I’ve been doing yoga since May of 2010 and haven’t become a Hindu, desired to study Hinduism, become confused about my faith in Yeshua/Jesus Christ, and to my knowledge I’m not full of demons so…none of the fear-based ideas have actually proven out. Had I continued to heed this admonishment I could’ve missed my healing and ended up like the woman in this picture on the left. I’m sorry but in my view, ChRxtians shouldn’t be “practicing medicine” and should leave this and other similar issues to the individual and the Holy Spirit. This is certainly true when they aren’t the picture of health individually or corporately. I think the Bible refers to it as “deal with the log in your own eye before attempting to fix your neighbor”. Clean up your own life and that should keep you plenty busy.

Yes, there are yoga studios that burn incense in front of a Buddha statue or an image of Shiva but that’s not the studios I go to or the books I use. It’s essentially an exercise class and that’s all. In the classes I met hundreds of people over the years and never once have I seen or become aware of anyone having some unexpected weird spiritual or physical experience. IT WAS JUST AN EXERCISE CLASS! For those who have a friend who had a perceived negative experience I suggest to you that what may have happened is the release of stored physical or emotional trauma rather than a demonic entity. You can read more about “stored trauma” on some of the links provided here or the many books available.

I heard and read stories of amazing physical recoveries. One woman was 76 and had a large mirror fall on her in a beauty salon. It broke her spine in four places. She began yoga in a wheelchair and eventually got well and became an instructor. Here’s another story I can closely relate to: https://evoketherapy.com/resources/blog/elise-mitchell/healing-trauma-with-yoga-a-personal-story/#moderated

“A Harvard Medical School study funded by the U.S. Defense Department found that veterans diagnosed with PTSD showed improvement in their symptoms after just 10 weeks of taking yoga classes twice a week, along with 15 minutes of daily home practice.

“In fact, a host of studies conducted within the past 10 years only seem to bolster early findings. Bessel van der Kolk, a professor of psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine and medical director of the Trauma Center, has studied trauma since the 1970s and is considered a pioneer in the field.

“After tracking his patients’ progress and becoming hooked on hatha yoga himself, he concluded that “the memory of the trauma is imprinted on the human organism.” He asserts that individuals cannot overcome trauma unless they “learn to have a friendly relationship with your body” and that “therapists treating psychological trauma need to work with the body as well as the mind.” https://www.theunion.com/news/business/our-issues-are-in-our-tissues-healing-trauma-with-yoga/

I say often that we can’t say “church is good and yoga is bad” because life isn’t that simple. In fact, I know a LOT of people who’ve been hurt deeply in churches. I once put up an inquiry post on facebook on the subject and was shocked at how many stories people posted. So, if we tell people that as a “Christian” they shouldn’t practice yoga because someone they know had a bad experience, why aren’t we saying the same thing about churches? LOTS of people I know have been traumatized in churches so people shouldn’t go to churches then right?

I was being poisoned by mercury, an abnormal dose of electric and magnetic fields, a “modeled by the church folks” diet full of chemicals, and again mainstream medicine was found deficient in the knowledge I needed and quite “chest bumpy” about perfectly logical questions I’d ask. Like, “How did I become infertile?” while pointing to the 9-month old standing between my feet. That should’ve triggered a question in their minds about what changes had taken place in my life in the previous 18 months but it didn’t. I later learned that some people have a genetic mutation or genetic marker that makes them more vulnerable to toxins. Our bodies like to hold on to them, especially metals. Sadly, most of this knowledge had to be found amongst “Alternative Medicine” practitioners as mainstream doctors are clearly not much more than a pill dispensary now and I think a computer could do a better job. The doctors were irritated because they didn’t know the answers but were too proud to say so I suspect. As a practitioner, I came to see that it’s very important to examine a person’s diet, lifestyle, relationships, and the health of their environment, electrical and otherwise, to determine the cause of disease so it can be arrested and healing can begin. For instance, we have these new-fangled electric meters in use here that are making people sick and killing people and the doctors have no clue until they hear from someone like me. You can’t see the current, taste it, or smell it but you can measure it on a safety meter. And just like carbon monoxide, it accumulates in your body. If this person comes forward for prayer, they aren’t likely to get the answers they need. They NEED measurements taken and filters placed on the lines. And even if they were to experience a miraculous healing, then they’d return to their toxic electrical environment, “like a dog returns to his vomit”. Jesus often said after healings He performed “Go and sin no more or something worse may come upon you.” He was clearly a fan of finding causation. Perhaps it’s time to learn more about this body that carries our soul and stop limiting our prayers to the ways of this world and our limited understanding while remaining ignorant about the vast amount of healing modalities outside of mainstream medicine, and blaming the people when the Rx pill way doesn’t work.

Ultimately what I want ChRxtians to see is that when you close a door to natural healing methods because of your own unjustified fears, you are taking a very powerful tool of recovery off of the table for people. In a world where opiates were killing 128 people a day, I think we need to keep all options on the table AND furthermore, we need to recognize that The Holy Spirit should be the ONE directing people’s paths, not scared culturally conformed congregants who are popping Rx pills and washing it down with the Diet Coke they bought in the lobby of the church. Had I continued to listen to the ideas of the ChRxtians, I would’ve suffered longer and died prematurely. They were wrong about almost every single thing I needed to know and do to get well and I think they need to know that so they’ll stop their pretentious intrusions into other people’s lives. Beyond John 3: 16 we are having a radically different experience with Jesus Christ but I am no less a Christian, though now preferring the term “Disciple of Yeshua” to differentiate myself from the modern version of ChRxtianity.

One final comment regarding etiquette. The people I met in yoga were loving, accepting, and assumed that I was exactly where I was supposed to be in my life and in my spiritual quest. Husbands and wives. Single professionals. A 2016 Forbes article states 37 million people in the U.S practice yoga. This is up from 20 million three years ago, which means yoga has nearly doubled in just a few years.” While the churches are dying at a record level in 2022. Pretty clear to me that people are not finding what they NEED in the churches these days. Of interest, the yoga people didn’t try to convert me or even comment on my faith journey. There’s a very strong unspoken sense among them of “that’s inappropriate” to do. Unlike many Christians, they don’t believe it’s proper to scrutinize another person’s journey, spiritual or otherwise! “Who am I to critique YOUR life!” would be words I’d expect to hear from them. If you engage them in a conversation about it, you’ll even see them get uncomfortable. And there weren’t any Coke machines or vending machines filled with junk. So while some Christians scream about their convictions about yoga I think there’s some great characteristics they could stand to adopt from this community. You can disagree with me but when you get to the point that you’re screaming at me and calling me names, you may have lost the debate on that alone. THIS IS MY JOURNEY! I did ask God and never one time did He tell me He didn’t want me to go. What I did hear was “Better get dressed or you’ll be late for class”. YOGA SAVED ME! It didn’t give me eternal salvation but it made my Earth journey much more bearable so PLEASE, STOP TELLING PEOPLE THAT THEY SHOULDN’T DO YOGA IF THEY’RE A CHRISTIAN. It’s really not any of your business. You should be encouraging people to learn to hear the Holy Spirit guiding them and then leave them alone. Pray for them. Bottom line, I’m not telling anyone that they HAVE TO go to yoga but you shouldn’t be telling anyone NOT TO go to yoga. Like the words of the Phil Phillips song, “If you get lost you can always be found”. People aren’t going to walk off the edge of the Earth. Trust them and pray for them but reserve your opinions. Too many have been too wrong on my journey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIbR7odQklk

    I appreciate what you say about yoga. I am a Christian and understand why other Christians say yoga is bad, and I agree that sometimes it is taught in a way that would be contrary to Christianity. However, I believe that, as you say, it’s about your intention. I had a severe eating disorder several years ago, and yoga helped me find my way back into my body. That might sound weird, but I was so disconnected from my physical body that I could fall down and be bleeding a lot and not feel it and only know it if I looked at my knee, for example.

      I understand what you’re saying about being disconnected from the physical body. I went through a lot of emotional trauma and found it interesting that my heart felt like it went numb. Something upsetting could happen and it would routinely take 4 days for the emotions to make it to the surface. As I continued my yoga practice it became 2 days and then I was introduced to Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work about meditation. That man healed 8 vertebra in his back with his mind. 10 months later he was seeing chiropractic patients! THAT is where I believe God is taking us next.; to learn about the power in this “connectedness” I’m coming to learn as “becoming conscious” or “mindful”. Surviving this Earth journey can be quite challenging so I think we need to keep healing tools in play and not throw the baby out with the wash water. Christianity has become very comfortable with Rx drugs, even preferring them to knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. THAT’S pretty sad so until they change the course they’re on…I won’t give much weight to what they have to say about health and healing. Seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit has served me very well. Blessings on your journey and thank you for chiming in. Kathy
