Start the new year with freedom from the past

It’s time to live uncaged, folks. To be set free from the past and soar today.

I’m reintroducing my audio healing retreat now as a catalyst for new growth in 2012. It mimics my own journey the past two years from being tethered unhealthily to “way back when” to learning to live with joy in the moment and anticipation of the future. I first gave this series of talks to our Life Group (Sunday School class at Lakepointe Church), and the response was heartening. Since then, I’ve given several of these messages around the country at retreats. It’s my prayer that these messages truly help you heal, stretch and grow in dynamic, surprising ways.

Please note these are not actual CDs but MP3 files you download and listen to however you’d like.

Healing Talk 2: Do You Want to Get well? Cost $10.00.

Though we say we want to be well, the truth is, we are afraid. Living in pain becomes comfortable for us so we stay in the pain instead of dare to step into healing. Mary asks the same question Jesus asks the lame man: Do you want to get well? She offers practical help to move forward beyond the past.

Healing Talk 3: Tell the Truth about Your Past. Cost $10.00.

No one heals in unreality. You can’t heal in darkness. The way to healing is telling the truth about the past (even if the past was last week.) Mary shares about the importance of truth-telling in the healing journey and helps you understand the need to be honest. Keeping secrets is like trying to push a beach ball under water. You can do it for a time, but it inevitably pops us. No matter how much we try to suppress the pain, it usually pops up in our behavior. Telling the truth will help you finally heal from the inside out.

Healing Talk 4: The Feast of Forgiveness. Cost $10.00.

Forgiveness is a radical but important step toward healing, but it is not easy. It does not excuse bad behavior. It recognizes and identifies it, then offers grace and forgiveness. It does not guarantee reconciliation, but it does invite it. When we forgive, we are most like Jesus. Mary offers her own stories of forgiveness and gives practical help to those who want to be set free from bitterness.

Healing Talk 5: The Dangers of Hidden Vows.Cost $10.00

When we live constantly in reaction to the past, we sabotage our future. Mary defines what a hidden vow is and how it can be destructive. She shares about the importance of letting Jesus heal from the inside out, to live in His strength when we are weak. The Christian life is not about us being strong and trying hard to overcome; it’s about entrusting ourselves to our strong God.
