Transcript of Immanuel Healing Approach

This term (also called the Immanuel Process) was created by Charlotte and Karl Lehman, M.D. to describe a counseling prayer method designed to resolve many forms of emotional distress linked to incompletely processed painful experiences. Then this expanded into a approach to connecting with God in all of life. In other words, it includes Immanuel emotional healing and a lifestyle of interactive connection with Immanuel .
The Immanuel Approach Compared to other models.
is to release simple tools (self-probigating) to all even to the simplest, weakest and poorest of the earth and also advanced tools to those especially gifted and called to do Inner healing and Counseling ministry.

Immanuel is "God with us!"
Immanuel is a person, not just a concept or a prayer model. Immanuel means “God with us,” and this promise is the foundation for all that follows.
What is the Immanuel approach to emotional healing?
“Immanuel Healing Prayer is a process of connecting personally and interactively with the Lord, and
removing barriers and hindrances
to an intimate, interactive lifestyle of connection with him. The goal is to build and deepen a
securely attached relationship
with the Lord, one that
increases our capacity to stay connected

to him
even in difficult life situations or painful experiences.” — Margeret Webb, Jessica Handy & Leren Chamberlain
What is the
“Immanuel Approach”?
The purpose of Immanuel is to provide tools for a lifestyle of intimacy, present pain processing and healing of past traumas through direct relational encounter with “the God with who is with us”
(Immanuel - Matthew 1:23 Psalm 139,
Zephaniah 3:17).

We interact with God best from the memories of times we spent with God. From these memories we can better explore those times where we do not perceive God’s presence. The memories of times when we had a close relationship with God are like open windows for seeing God’s active presence again in the present.
Less time in our pain because we do not begin our
search for God’s presence while we are sitting on our pain.
Instead, we explore our pain while sitting comfortably close to God.

Guidance from the starting moment
A spot to return quickly if we get lost.
A place to pause an incomplete

Less confusion, distortion and resistance.
Starting with a good connection produces
A place to stay relationally connected while processing our pain.
with God
Start at the top of the hill with God.
God offers us hospitality.
Begin where our minds remember God best - in either our appreciation memories or interactive memories. From either of these comfortable seats we can share a state of mind with God and feel God peace.
The appreciation memories seat will help us warm up our brains when we actively seek and focus on
appreciation memories. Appreciation comes from the “ah!” moments: a baby’s smile, a beautiful scene,
kindness, special recognition and warm cozy moments –whether we give them or receive them.
The interactive memories seat is the best place to
stay for Immanuel experiences. These memories from
our lives take us back to times when we could sense God’s thoughts and feelings toward us. These times
are filled with God peace (Shalom)...The important point is that God is still there when we go back and remember the moment. Now we can interact again.
Opening Adoration & Prayer
minds & hearts
Establishing Mutual Mind by asking questions of God?
No matter which of the two comfortable seats we are sitting in, we ask questions and then look in our minds for responses from God. Responses can be words, pictures, thoughts, feelings in our bodies, desires, memories, emotions and internal shifts. Often God shows us something we need to notice...When we do get “a message from God,” so to speak, it will make things fit together in God peace (Shalom).

1. Ask “Jesus what do you want me to know?”
or “What is the source or origin of these feelings?”

2. Catch, without editing, what Jesus is saying or showing you.

3. Watch for lies and renounce. Ask for truth and replace.

4. Check to see if you are still seated with Jesus & look for God peace (Shalom).

5. Share your responses and continue to dialogue with Jesus
telling the story
Speaking the story of what changed when we perceived God’s presence is what changes the way that our brain sees the future, giving us hope and joy instead of dread and despair.
What was the moment in our memory where we first became aware of God’s presence?
What did God do first?
What process did God take us through?
What did we feel before and after?
What would we call the kind of changes
we experienced with Immanuel?
when things go wrong
It is common to encounter problems while seeking interaction, avoiding falls into the thorny patches of pain
or telling our Immanuel story.
1. I can’t perceive God
2. I don’t think the answers I am getting are from God
3. I can’t do this on my own
4. My story is hard to tell or people don’t like to hear it
5. What should I expect will happen?
Approach to Healing

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means “God with us”)".
Matthew 1:23

What reaction did we have?
What is "Immanuel"?
"And let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus,
the pioneer and perfecter of faith."
Hebrews 12:1c-2
