We each have a body, a soul, and a spirit. It’s easy to confuse the soul and the spirit, but distinguishing each from the other is essential to walk in emotional vitality and total health.

To walk in total wholeness we’ve got to take care of both aspects of the “inner person.” In other words, health involves not only spiritual wholeness but also soul wholeness, because the body is different than the spirit and the spirit is different than the soul.

This on-demand 14-video course shows you how to walk in total wholeness so your emotions can serve you rather than being enslaved by them.

1. Foundations (background info you need to know), 2 Three types of soul wounds, 3. Five tools you can use immediately, and 4. Perspective for moving forward

1. Foundations

We each have a body, a soul, and a spirit.

It’s easy to confuse the soul and the spirit, but distinguishing each from the other is essential to walk in total health.

Here are the three main points in this lesson:

1. There are two unseen parts of us, the spirit and the soul, and they are different.

2. God intends to redeem all of you, that is, gift you with total wholeness.

3. You reap the benefits from the part of you into which you lean the most fully (meaning we want to live from the spirit), yet each part is important (so we also want to take care of our bodies and move towards soul wholeness).

 

We’re all emotional. Our feelings are a vital part of who we are.

If we don’t find healthy ways to express our emotions they’ll “leak” in unhealthy ways.

In this video we open Scripture and discover how soul health is part of the overall health Jesus offers us. Here are the main points:

1. Redemption = freedom.

2. Jesus is our Redeemer, the One who sets us free.

3. Jesus redeems (frees) our whole self, our total being.

We can only be as healthy as the weakest part of us— be it our bodies, our minds, our spirits, or (yes!) our emotions. A more emotionally whole you is a healthier you.

The truth is that many of us face challenges, hard times...

In the same way we pause when we encounter physical pain, we should also stop when we experience emotional pain. This requires us to recognize that some wounds and scars aren’t visible— they’re invisible. Even though they remain unseen, they’re just as real.

Here are the points to look for:

1. Life is beautiful, and life is hard.

2. There are four ways (at least) to deal with the “hard.”

3. We won’t progress— as a person— beyond our ability to deal with “hard.”

Rather than minimizing our hurts and pushing forward, we acknowledge them and slow down. We rest, we recharge.

Many times we look for restoration to occur— especially when things become broken. Whether it’s our health, finances, marriage, or another relationship, we often want to “return” to what once was…

But, restoration isn’t always a return to how things were.

Many times it’s a move forward to how things should be. That often means “different” and “better” than you originally experienced.

Here are the main ideas:

1. A renewed— or resurrected— life often looks radically different than the recent life.

2. The tension = traumatic experiences often move us to what “could be” best from here rather than back to what once was.

3. Sometimes there’s no indication in the former that the latter was ever even possible.

Once we recognize our emotions, we can read what they’re communicating to us. Then, rather than being controlled by them and reacting to circumstances in unhealthy ways, we can respond in healthy ways. 

Here are the main points:

1. Feelings are to your soul what physical sensations are to your body.

2. There aren’t “good” or “bad” feelings— just healthy and unhealthy expressions of them.

3. Your heart always tells the truth about what it feels (it’s not always accurate, but it’s always honest).

This leads us to the first of three types of soul wounds we’ll discuss. The wounds are:

  • Triggered (PTSD) = external threats
  • Guilt & shame (Moral Injury) = internal threats
  • Soul ties = heart attachments, addiction, even identity

2. Three Types of Soul Wounds

Here's the first of 3 soul wounds we discuss...

We often mis-read events in the present through the lenses of the past. Triggers often create a response which would actually be appropriate in a different time and place.

The un-health manifests when we react to a safe present as if it is an unsafe past.

Here are the main ideas:

1. Perception is not always reality.

2. Four signs & two responses show us when our expressions get unhealthy.

3. You’re not flawed— many times your response is totally in line with your past experience. The issues arise when you react to a safe present as if it’s the unsafe past.

That leads us to the topic of PTSD…

Many people think PTSD is rare. Turns out, it’s quite common. What’s uncommon is the formal diagnosis. Our goal isn’t to receive a diagnosis— nor to avoid one. Our goal is to walk in health, taking the path which will get us there.

We’re designed to grow by exploring the world around us. But, we bump into painful experiences as we do. So, we create (often unconscious) rules to protect ourselves from future pain. Some of the rules are functional (and help us), others are dysfunctional (and hinder us).

Here are the main ideas:

1. Three rules of human nature, related to soul health, govern how we uniquely approach the world.

2. The rules can create ruts— both good and bad.

  • Functional rules = friends = help us (don’t touch a hot stove, fear of heights, walking down dark alley)
  • Dysfunctional = foes = hinder us (lack of trust in relationships, fear of failure, etc.)

3. We eventually get more of what we expect, creating a “flywheel” of momentum.

If we don’t work through the “triggers” we discussed in the previous video we’ll find ourselves constantly living from “soul memory,” something much like muscle memory.

This video leads us to the second of three types of soul wounds we discuss, guilt and shame.

Here’s how it works…

We’re born with a moral compass— an internal rudder of right and wrong. When we violate our personal conscience, soul wounds can occur. 

Here are the main ideas:

1. “Moral Injury” occurs when we violate our code of morality, that is, of right and wrong. The result... is guilt & shame.

2. The uncommon cure for Moral Injury— for guilt & shame— is mature love.

3. In relationships you can choose intimacy or control, as well as transparency or hiding... but not both.

True love expels fear with great intensity, creating space where people own who they are and move forward to who they’re designed to be. The all-too-uncommon cure for guilt & shame is receiving forgiveness— unconditional love— from someone the wounded person believes has the moral authority to grant that forgiveness.

The third type of soul wound we discuss is soul ties. Issues arise when we attach our hearts, for any reason, to the wrong place. When we do, bad fruit always emerges.

When we connect our hearts in the right way to the right things, beauty emerges.

Here are the main ideas:

1. The “fruit” we see in our lives is a result of the unseen “roots.” To grow better fruit you must nurture better roots.

2. Addiction happens when we attach our hearts—

* To the wrong things, or
* To the right things for wrong reasons

And, note: we can find ourselves “addicted” to many things. In fact, over 2/3 of the people who seek addiction help do not have a chemical dependency.

3. The cure for bad “roots” = knowing and walking in your true identity. When we get this healthy, good fruit emerges.

Dealing with soul ties is about walking in freedom— so that nothing hinders us from embracing who we’re designed to be.

3. Five Tools You Can Use Immediately

Sometimes healing happens instantly. Other times, it comes as we choose to live well, with intention, over time.

This is true in the realm of physical health, as well as mental and emotional health.

Here are the main ideas:

1. Sometimes healing happens instantly. Other times health emerges as we “walk out” our issues over time.

In point #2, we discuss the first of 5 tools…

2. Tool #1 of 5 = Move more.

In point #3, we discuss three more tools…

3. Three more tools for emotional health complete this video.

In music, the rests are as important as the notes you play. Life is the same way.

There’s a definite beat to Creation that works well for us when we embrace it.

Here are the main ideas:

1. The created order is built on a rhythm of “off” and “on.” We’re designed for bursts of work and pauses for rests.

2. Five signs highlight when we *might be living out of rhythm.

3. Three actions steps empower you to step back into Creation’s rhythm (which is our 5th tool for your freedom march / walking in emotional health).

As we continue our discussion on walking in Creation’s rhythm, we discuss the third action step towards moving back in line...

Turns out, it’s not just the things we seek— or hustle for— which matter. Rather, the way in which we hustle is important, too.

That is, it’s not just what we do but how we do it.

Here are the main ideas:

1. It’s not only “what” you do but also “how” you do it that matters.

2. Much of our “chase” and “hustle” is based on our perceived lack— and that lack is often (wrongly) rooted in identity.

3. A lot of hustle becomes a desperate chase for self-worth, to create a “mask” of value.

Any work can be sacred; any hustle can be holy.

Hustle can easily become toil. The opposite of work isn’t laziness. The opposite of work is toil. Hustle, but hustle in a healthy way.

4. Perspective as You Move Forward

Yes, we want to live in the present— and in the future— in an emotionally whole way. Sometimes, though, we need to go back in order to move ahead.

That is, we need to uncover the masks we wear and figure out why we build so many emotional walls.

Here’s an important point…

1. Spirituality & emotions are two different things. They might be connected at times, but they are different.

In this video we’ll discuss two things which help us transform into who we’re designed to be spiritually and emotionally. You’ll be surprised at what they are, as well as how accessible they are…

2. Mirror #1 of 2.

3. Mirror #2 of 2.

If you don’t like the story you’re living, change it. We each have the ability to stand “outside ourselves” and assess what’s happening in real time. If we don’t like the story we’re living, we can learn from the past.

Rather than living from “rules” which haven’t served us well (or might have served us during a previous season of life), we can craft better responses for the future.

Here are the main ideas:

1. Sometimes we see what we expect to see. That is, seeing is believing, but believing is also seeing.

2. This means we can change our story, by adjusting what we choose to see.

(This does not mean we deny reality. It means we change our perspective.)

3. Change your perspective by dealing with the soul wound with which you struggle.
