JI Course 105: Get Control of your Authentic Personality

JI COURSE 105: Get Control of your Authentic Personality and Find True Happiness in the Second Half of Life

The course offers a tried-and-true model that helps adults of all ages see themselves and their crosses through the eyes of Christ and find inner healing. The course encourages persons to seek the best medical and psychological care when needed, but at its core it teaches a way of calling on our faith to give us new balance, new stamina, and new peace so we can find the inner healing and strength to carry our cross with renewed confidence.

The course stresses the difference between sickness and illness. We use them interchangeably as though they each meant the same thing. They don’t! Sickness is when a part of the body is broken or malfunctioning. Any medical diagnosis, or psychiatric malady is a sickness. Illness, on the other hand, refers to our emotional, psychological, and/or spiritual reactions to our sickness.

Fully 86% of us beyond middle age deal with some chronic sickness: arthritis, hypertension, pain, osteoporosis, etc., etc. Other adults carry the crosses of depression, anxiety, compulsions, etc., etc. Still others suffer with insecurity, fear, worry, lack of confidence, envy, despair, anger, lack of personal meaning, etc., etc. We all have crosses to carry and therefore we all need God’s inner healing power. Many maladies cannot be cured, but with God’s help we can find inner healing.

In this powerful course you will learn specific inner healing strategies useful for all adults across the lifespan whether they deal with:
· Some chronic physical disease,
· An emotional malady like depression, or
· They simply desire a new, rich spiritual depth.

As part of the course, students personally take, and become facile in the "Spiritual Strengths Profile" (SSP).The SSP is a marvel; it generates a 20-page individualized printout based on your responses to 120 incisive items. The information on this 20 page document is like nothing you have ever seen before; it's like looking into a spiritual pesonality mirror. It must be experienced to be appreciated.

The Spiritual Strengths Healing Plan specifically shows you how to train your mind to think the most enhancing and accurate thoughts, and inspirits your heart to feel the most vitalizing and real feelings. The Spiritual Strengths Healing Plan awakens your special God-given healing wisdom within you. This course opens your inner life to a new and enlightened understanding of dis-ease; it offers an entirely new way for summoning up the buried healing power within us.
