Immanuel, Emotional Healing, & Capacity
Many people are seeking healing from the ongoing effects of traumatic or difficult events that have happened to them. They know they need to allow the Great Physician, Jesus, in to the places of pain in their hearts to receive healing, but they can’t seem to "get there."
There are many possible reasons for this blockage to healing – but one that often goes unrecognized is the issue of capacity. Just as physical systems, like the wiring in your house, have a finite capacity to carry a load, so our brains, minds, and spirits have finite capacities for working with traumatic memories.
In these two lectures, Dr. Lehman introduces the concept of brain-mind-spirit capacity (drawing especially on the work of Dr. E. James Wilder), explains how limited capacity can block emotional healing, and then describes interventions for helping people overcome problems with limited capacity (particularly by helping them experience the reality of Jesus as Immanuel, "God with Us."
