INNER HEALING: The supernatural, spiritual remediation of the earliest, and deepest, wounds of the soul.
The definition is mine. The designation is not. “Inner Healing” as a descriptive term didn’t originate with me, but God has allowed our ministry to take the concept to new levels. Inner healing (IH) is psycho-spiritual intervention that usually deals with traumatic experiences, often occurring at a young age, which have deeply affected an individual’s ability to have emotional wholeness. Such trauma may be an opening for spiritual oppression and outright demonic possession. IH is generally integral to the deliverance process. Many times demons cannot be expelled until IH has taken place. Unfortunately, this aspect of ministry has been ignored, neglected, and demeaned by most evangelical churches. Some even question whether it has any spiritually therapeutic value. Those of us in deliverance ministry know that IH is important and crucial, and IT WORKS!
But is it scientifically supportable? A recent report in “Neuroscience News” is most revealing. In an article entitled “Retrieving Hidden Traumatic Memories,” stressful past experiences, particularly childhood abuse, are described as hiding like a “shadow in the brain.” If not properly accessed and treated, the article warns that these suppressed (and often dissociated) memories can cause “debilitating psychological problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or dissociative disorders.” These are all things that we’ve been teaching for years. Now there is science to back this up. Dr. Jelena Radulovic, the Dunbar Professor in Bipolar Disease at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has published research into fear-related memories (which would include sexual abuse and Satanic Ritual Abuse). Dr. Radulovic points out that the problem with helping patients suffering from hidden, past trauma is that they can’t remember the abuse that is at the root of their current psychiatric symptom. And having that information is a key to getting better. The Dr. proposes a solution: “Return the brain to the same state of consciousness as when the memory was encoded.” Or, as I teach in our International School of Exorcism®, “Go to the point of the pain.” Relive the trauma in the altered context of Christ’s healing.

An encouraging word: SHINE AS A LIGHT.
A friend of mine was recently going through a difficult time because of the immoral environment in which he lived. I reminded him of Paul’s words to the Philippians (2:15), “Become blameless . . . without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation . . . shine as lights in the world.” You and I can’t always change what’s around us, especially the darkness of sin and moral perversity. But we can “shine.” We can live godly and let that be our silent rebuke. If you are discouraged by the crookedness of people and things around you, what a great time to be a blameless Believer to the lost who live without Christ.
