Inner Healing (Disassociation) and Demons
Q: What is Inner Healing?
Inner healing is using prayer and the Word of God to heal the deepest wounds to our souls. The deepest wounds are usually caused by severe trauma or abuse. The trauma can be physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical pain, or any emotional pain that we can’t cope with at that moment. The way we deal with the pain from the wound is by mentally separating from reality, or disassociating. There are many names that the psychiatric community has for these wounds: Bipolar, Manic-Depressive, DID (Dissociative Identity disorder), Alternate Personalities, MPD(Multiple Personality Disorder), PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Inner healing gets to the deepest root of the pain from the trauma and gets it healed permanently.
Q: What are some characteristics and effects of soul wounds (Disassociation)
Just a few characteristics and effects of soul wounds are: Depression, Emotional Overreaction, Lost Time, Voices, Self-Harm (cutting), Suicidal Thoughts or Attempts, Emotional Shutdown.
Q: What’s the relationship between Soul Wounds and Demons?
The trauma or abuse is an entry point for demons. When someone says they are tormented by anxiety, fear, guilt, anger, or any other emotion, there is a strong possibility that they have deep soul wounds that are being tormented by demons. The demons won’t leave until the wounds are completely healed.
