What on earth is “Splankna?” I’m glad you asked. Let me first tell you my experience and then I will let you know how to find out more about it.
We have all had this experience; we know what is wrong, we want to get well, we may even seek help, but nothing works. It’s frustrating and if you’re like a lot of people, you have just accepted that some things won’t change. You’ve accepted something less than the abundant life Christ came to give you. Or maybe you have accepted some watered down version of abundant life and become convinced there is nothing more.
At the Splankna Therapy Institute we are passionate about redeeming the field of energy psychology for the Kingdom of God. We offer a Christian protocol for Mind-Body Work adapting elements from Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.), Thought-Field Therapy (T.F.T.), E.M.D.R. (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and spiritual warfare. It filters out New Age philosophies and harnesses God's remarkable created mechanisms in the body-mind connection. It provides a highly effective treatment procedure for quickly alleviating a wide range of psychological symptoms. It addresses client challenges comprehensively, attending to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the problem and the solution.
Today I wanted to talk about our first category of the wellness wheel (family and friends) and how strengthening relationships in this area of life can contribute to overall wellness. I talked quite a bit in the introductory blog about family, so my goal in today's writing is to keep it short, and to offer some practical ways to thrive in this category.
I was once asked if, as Christians, we should be plan makers or order followers. How are we suppose to Thrive as Christians? Do we create visions, make plans, or wait for orders? As I thought about this and what scripture says, it was clear that we are to be both plan makers and order followers. We need to find our calling, create visions and be obedient even when we feel ill equipped.
Statistics surrounding divorce are heartbreaking. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (2012) for every 1,000 people there are 6.8 marriages and for every 1,000 people there are 3.6 divorces. Marriages are constantly breaking up and within those marriages are precious children being faced with difficult life situations. The 2009 American Community Survey indicates that only 47% of children reach the age of 17 in an intact married family.
