  1. Thank you Ann, Kevin,and Lisa! I appreciate your comments!

    And Julie, thank you for being brave enough to speak up about how you feel. Leslie answered your concerns so well, that I don’t really have much to add to that, except that yes, you are right, the gift of prayer is enough. It is also enough to heal an abscessed tooth or a broken arm, but people still go get help from a Dentist or Dr. I guess we could look at those as a man made ‘techniques’. These are all tools to help us in this mortal life.

    I have never heard any church leader say anything about staying away from “Energy Healing” (I’m pretty sure I would hear about that one πŸ™‚ ). But I think I can understand what you mean by that, if your impression of what Energy Healing is means mystical, woo-woo, new-age spirituality. That is not at all what I do, or what this work is and should be. That’s Satan’s counterfeit (like he has for everything good).

    Lisa mentioned Christians being willing to step out of their comfort zones. This has never been outside my comfort zone or my beliefs, if it were i would have stayed far away from it as I have many other things that have crossed my path. Energy Healing (pure, uncontaminated), fits perfectly with my testimony of the gospel (actually enhances it). There is not one thing that conflicts, and to be really honest, I’m always a little surprised that some people see it as a conflict to Christian beliefs. But I do ‘get’ that if it’s new to people and they have the wrong impression of what it is, then yes, their false idea of what it is could conflict with their beliefs.

    I hope that helps. I’m more than happy to answer any further questions about it.

    PS Lisa – I love the work you are doing, helping couples in birthing. I’m coming to your neck of the woods-I will be teaching my Calyco Healing Training in Australia next week!

  2. Thankyou so much Leslie for sharing this on your site. I feel like I could just sit down with you for an afternoon and talk with both you (and Carolyn) about how our Creator has uniquely designed our bodies to heal and the different methods we can use. I will definately be checking out more about what Carolyn does. I have just completed a Calmbirth Practitioner course here in Australia which teaches or empowers couples to have a very positve birth experience (it is possible to have a ‘pain free’ birth). The course has been great but I am wrestling with just a few principles that come from a new age perspective. My faith/beliefs are being challenged and I so want to understand it from a Biblical point of view so I can effectively help couples achieve an awesome birth experience as well as not compromise my foundational beliefs. There are not too many Christians that I personally know who are willing to step out of their comfort zone or belief systems to explore some of these ideas. I also just want to say I very much enjoyed your book “The Jackrabbit Factor” and have ordered your latest. I will be getting my kids to read them…even if I have to pay them! πŸ™‚

    Hi Lesley,

    Thank you for responding so quickly – I really appreciate it. I did skim the article although I admit I did so very fearfully. I’ll read it slowly and prayerfully and then let you know my thoughts. Thanks for engaging with me on this.

    With best wishes,

  4. Hi Julie,

    I really appreciate your taking the time to contact me with your concerns. I am right there with you and have wrestled with the same concerns. Through my research I have found that the counsel from Christian leaders has been against things that lead Christians away from Christ, and over the years, I’ve brushed up against a number of “energy healing” people and modalities that felt like that might happen. Sure, they did a lot of good for people, but there was the potential that they could lead a person to feel they no longer needed Him.

    This method has no contradiction with such spiritual beliefs, and my article explains the difference between this and others. For one thing, the practitioner is not a “healer”, and it does not replace prayer or priesthood blessings. I’ve spent a lot of time with Carolyn who taught me this… we spent a week at a cabin alone to work on our books together, and I have never met someone in this industry who is as grounded as she is. I’ve asked her a lot of questions having had the same concerns as you. Questions like, “How does this fit with the gospel?” “How is that that you’ve been doing this 14 years and haven’t gone weird?” “Have you seen other people who work in this industry go off on dark tangents? How have YOU stayed grounded?” Our conversations have been very enlightening. In fact, it works best when your relationship with Christ is strong.

    I’m sure the title may have caused you fear, and not wanting to read something that could sway you from truth, you probably didn’t read it. I totally respect that… but if you will read it and then tell me what you think, I’d love to continue this conversation with you at least until you are comfortable entirely with considering it, or leaving it alone forever, either way, I’ll respect your decision entirely.

    The article explains it really well, and will help you understand also why the adversary does two things: he leads people into the dark arts, and he creates fear in good people so they will also avoid the good and pure tools that will help them accomplish their life’s mission.

    In these last days we’re fighting battles that are unprecedented. To help us win, the Lord has provided many, many tools and helps to keep us strong that you’ll never hear about in Sunday School, like essential oils, for example. My daughter has impetigo on her leg right now. The doctor prescribed some antibiotics and asked me to try them and see what happens, because he wasn’t entirely sure if it was impetigo. I came home that day and felt like I should try my Frankincense. I did, and it’s responding very quickly. I didn’t hear about Frankincense in Sunday School (okay, well, I’ve heard of it from the story of Christ’s birth, but never in the context of: you should go get some, it will help you in your life), but I still feel like I was inspired to use it.

    Carolyn’s method does not compete with doctors, nor with spiritual practices. It’s in a category all its own and has actually helped me live the gospel more completely.

    Anyway, I’ll remind or invite you to study it out, go ahead and read the article, then ask God if it’s good or not, and if it’s not good, you’ll get a stupor, (not fear). If it’s good, you’ll feel peace. Trust whatever impression you get and then go with it.

    I look forward to hearing from you again,

    Leslie πŸ™‚

  5. This question just came in to my email and I thought it would be valuable to post it here, along with my response:

    Dear Lesley,

    Many thanks for the e-zine. I have been following your work for some time now and have really felt the benefit of it. I think the greatest thing your works such as the Jackrabbit Factor and Portal to Genius (I’ve bought and read them both) have done for me is given me hope. The instruction in your works I have been gently digesting and taking on board. I really felt I was making progress until I received this e-mail today and read your article on ‘energy healing’. To be honest, it nearly took my breath away and I felt my stomach sink. Energy healing is one practise that we, as Christians, have been warned off countless times by our Church Leaders, although I personally don’t need to be warned. To me this moves away from looking at healing as a result of God’s grace and rather turns it into a man-made ‘technique’. I do believe that people are healed by this method but how do we discern if this is God’s work if we are attempting to manipulate a body’s energy fields. Why is this even necessary as we all have the gift of prayer?

    I believe the reason why my stomach sank when I got this e-mail is because energy work of any kind just seems decidedly ‘new-age’ to me. I would really appreciate a response as I have invested time and money in your books and have just recently purchased the e-book ‘Hidden Treasures’.

    With thanks,
    Julie [name has been changed]

  6. Leslie- thank you for sharing this powerful healing modality! Carolyn’s message resonated with me for sure! Blessings to you and yours- Kevin

  7. I learned how to use energy or meridan tapping several years ago and it does work. Whether you believe it or not, it does work because the energy flows in the body are no longer stopped.

    I use it every day.
