THE LIVE METHOD (Love is Victorious Everywhere)
During her almost 20 years of practice as a holistic healer, Christian Naturopath, Carolyn Berghuis, MS, ND, CTN has witnessed first-hand the power emotional and spiritual wounds hold in a person’s life. Stress, the frequent by-product of these wounds and limitations, creates havoc in your physical body and it limits full transformation. The stress-disease connection is the lived reality for too many of God’s children today. This insight compelled Carolyn to venture forward and seek new pathways into healing.
This journey lead to Carolyn into the creation of The LIVE Method (referred to as LIVE). LIVE is a modality that uses forgiveness and acceptance in a Christian setting to bring about transformation so individuals can break free from limitations holding them back from all the goodness God has for them. Carolyn will be the first person to say that she didn’t create LIVE, rather, she surrendered to it, fully recognizing that this is God’s creation. She is simply the facilitator and messenger.
Your Life Puzzle
During your Initial Session with Carolyn she will listen to your story with a well-trained and experienced ear. You are a complex individual with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs – all of which need to be addressed for full transformation. Identifying the different pieces of your life puzzle, your unique story, is the first step on your journey into healing. Godly healing is an art that weaves together body, heart, and soul transformation – the very essence of LIVE.
While your journey is uniquely yours, all of humanity has one thing in common. Every human being carries an internal desire for health and wholeness that only God can deliver. Sadly, too many people have lost touch with this desire of the heart. However, and fortunately, an increase in Godly healing is occurring in the world today. Remember, where sin abounds, Grace abounds in greater measure.
Psalm 84:1-3 – How lovely your dwelling, O Lord of hosts! My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the Lord. My heart and flesh cry out for the living God. (NABRE)
From Limiting Patterns to Restoration
It seems that today’s average person frequently desires greater happiness and peace, only to find themselves feeling dissatisfied and re-experiencing existential longings for bliss. They hit the proverbial brick wall time and time again. Many “golden calves” promise real bliss today, yet, in reality they serve to create brick walls blocking you from your heart’s desire. Their false promises seem to easily entice us. New and shiny, they offer worldly happiness.
However, worldly happiness has its limitations. In order to experience true restoration and full joy you must strive to become one with the source of joy and love – our Triune God. While our humanity limits full unity with God, the journey into transformation is offers a richness our soul yearns for. As long as we are living in our humanity (i.e. while we are still alive) there is always room to grow in deeper oneness with God.
LIVE strives to help transform patterns separating you from the true joy your heart desires by making you more congruent with God’s plan for your life. It works to tear down those brick walls and transform them into golden rivers. Some of the patterns separating you from true joy are born out of your unique personality, some stem from childhood wounds, and others are generational in nature. All of these patterns contribute to the foundation your current thoughts and emotions arise from – for good or, well, not so good.
Fun Fact: Your mind experiences about 70,000 thoughts a day. Sadly, for the average person, 80% are negative. However; 95% are repetitive – meaning they make up most of your 70,000 thoughts! You are running a continuous loop over and over in your head, a loop based on your life experiences up until this point in time. For optimal well-being of body, heart, and soul, you must begin to reprogram your subconscious mind so those repetitive thoughts become congruent with health, happiness, and wholeness!
What is LIVE?
LIVE is an amalgam of many modalities and spiritual beliefs Carolyn has studied, experienced, and “sat with” over the years. At its core, LIVE is a rich transformation modality offering the space for forgiveness of self and others. LIVE will lead you into greater awareness of the many pieces of your life as your heart grows in compassion, understanding, and love. The forgiveness work LIVE offers is firmly rooted in the forgiveness Jesus Christ revealed on the cross. Through Christ you will become able to break free from the shame, anxiety, and anger holding you captive. I
During your LIVE work it is important to hold in your heart a very important truth about the cross. Jesus didn’t carry his cross for the pain it held, rather he carried his cross for the joy it promised. And what is this joy? You are his joy! All of humanity is his joy! Jesus Christ desires that all of God’s children live the fullness of joy God has for us. Uniting with Christ in this work allows you to more fully move into this joy by tearing down the bricks limiting its reception in your heart. However, like Christ, we must also move through the pain of our crosses.
Hebrews 12:2 – For the sake of the joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God. (NABRE)
John 15: 8, 11 “By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples…I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”(NABRE)
LIVE and Dis-ease
Ok, we have shared with you that LIVE can help you move beyond your current subconscious belief patterns into congruency with the joy God has for you. Great! But how is that done? Well, as mentioned above, Carolyn will listen to your story with an experienced and well-trained ear during your Initial Session. During this time, she will be on the “look-out” for the root cause of your dis-ease. The root cause is likely found in a combination of physical, emotional, and spiritual patterns. When Carolyn determines which patterns need to be addressed at that time, she will utilize LIVE to help you move beyond then and open to greater joy. During your follow-up LIVE Sessions you will dive deeper into these body, heart, and soul patterns and unlock them so your joy continues to increase.
How LIVE Works
Carolyn has developed what she calls the Nine Faces of Struggle, the places most people tend to get “stuck”. Your “stuckness” can manifest as shame, anger, anxiety or any other emotion not congruent with love. Once Carolyn identifies where this exists for you, she will then guide you through a series of transformational LIVE statements created to bring peace and clarity. Since no two of us harbor the same interior wounds and limitations, these statements will be uniquely yours.
Once your session is done you will likely notice that you feel “lighter” – the word most of her clients use to describe the after-effects of the work. Carolyn will give you some “homework” to help you continue your emotional and spiritual transformation. This can include various meditations and reflection on scripture or other Christian spiritual works, reading and reflecting on specific chapters in Understanding The Jesus Code, or activities the two of you feel will be helpful to your heart and soul.
1 Peter 5:10 – The God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little. (NABRE)
