On today's episode Julie and I chat about faith and her IFS journey. Julie states that IFS already has a spiritual component and IFS is compatible with Christianity. She explains how 100 percent of the population is made in God's image and has access to a Core Self. The burdens we pick up have marred that image; our mirror is now dirty with them. The IFS model helps to clean the mirror so we have more clarity, more access to the Holy Spirit and more abundant living.
Julie walks through an example of inviting God into a painful scene and memory. She talks about praying for parts and praying from parts and gives several examples of both. She prayers for our inner tasker and states, "Our spiritual walk manifests in our everyday life."
She states that Jesus had parts, he did not have burdens (interesting, right?!).
No matter what your spiritual path is, research shows prayer is good for our nervous systems. Praying FROM a part and FOR a part are ways to give parts voice. "Every part deserves to have a voice- in the world and with God."
