Christ-Centered Therapy
Annette Nay, Ph.D.

This therapy is based on the atonement of Jesus Christ and the scriptures. All Christian's believe that Christ suffered all things that we have suffered, are suffering, or will suffer in the future. This suffering encompasses our sins, our physical and mental problems, our heartaches, stumbling blocks, and setbacks. Since these things have already been suffered for, we do not have to continually suffer for them also. If God judges that we and in some cases our significant others have learned what they and you need to from the experience, He will take our problems from us, if asked to do so. This is called a spiritual healing.

The scriptures say that whatever you ask Heavenly Father for, in the name of Jesus Christ, if it be good, it will be given you. (John 14:13-14) This is because Christ has already suffered these things for us so we would not have to go through them.

Heavenly Father and Jesus loves you and wants you to be happy. "…men (& women) are that they might have joy" 2 Nephi 2:25 & 33.

I had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 16 years. I had the type that was unremitting-recycling; which it only gets worse and it doesn't stop until death. I was at death’s door. My MRI showed lesions in my brains like Swiss Cheese from all the damage done by the MS. With Christ-Centered Therapy one moment I had MS and the next I did not. My MRI now shows no damage at all.

In Christ-Christ Centered Therapy all things are possible. The scriptures show case after case wherein Christ healed the sick, helped the blind to see, and the lame to walk. The scriptures say that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Alma 31:17) If this is so, He can do the same, now, for you.

How Do You Know If You & Significant Others Have Learned What You Need to From This Experience?

Take inventory of the situation. Ask the Lord to help you to understand the things you and significant others have learned from you having this problem in your life. List down all the things you can think of.

Knowing the Truth of All Things

Now that you have 1) studied the issue out in your mind, 2) make a decision whether or not you think you have learned what you needed to from this situation. 3) Then ask God if your decision is correct.

  • A "Yes" answer is manifest by a burning or warm, swelling feeling in the chest area accompanied with a feeling of peace or a feeling that all is well or right.
  • A "No" answer is manifest by confusion, doubt, a stupor of thought, or a dull cloudy feeling in your head. Your thoughts may be hard to hold on to or even fade or disappear.

4. ". . . and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, He will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. (Moroni 10: 4-5)

By thinking things through, making an informed decision, and then asking God if it is correct you can know the truth of all things.

How to Make Good Decisions

1. Take a piece of paper and draw a vertical line down the middle of the sheet making two columns.

2. On the top of the first column, write "Pro's." These are the positive things about the issue.

3. On the top of the second column write "Con's." These are the negative things about the issue.

4. Ask the Lord to help you list all the items dealing with this issue. Now, list all the items about the issue under the appropriate column.

5. Ask the Lord to help you to understand the importance of each item listed by assigning it a fair numeric value. Giving an item a "ten" means that it is of the utmost importance. Assigning it a "one" means that it has little or no importance. A "five," means that it is middle of the road; not extremely important, but not unimportant either. Now, assign each item a value.

6. Add up the numeric value of each item, in each column, to see which has the most important items listed. The one with the higher value means more to you and should give you your decision.

7. Now that you have studied it out in your mind, ask God if your decision is correct.

  • A "Yes" answer is manifest by a burning or warm, swelling feeling in the chest area accompanied with a feeling of peace or a feeling that all is well or right.
  • A "No" answer is manifest by confusion, doubt, a stupor of thought, or a dull cloudy feeling in your head. Your thoughts may be hard to hold on to or even fade or disappear.

4. ". . . and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, He will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. (Moroni 10: 4-5)

8. Now, ask the Lord to help you do what you must to put your decision to work. This may take a great deal of planning.

9. Actuate your plan and put your decision to work. Do it now. ". . . faith without works is dead. James 2:20”

How to Proceed

If you have gotten a "yes" answer then you must put this answer into action and make it work for you. Do not procrastinate. ". . . faith without works is dead." (James 2:20)

Visualization

1. Close your eyes. See yourself in a beautiful field of daisies. The sun is warm and comforting. A slight breeze is playing across the field causing the daisies to gently nod their heads to and fro. Relax and feel the breeze play across your face and through your hair.

2. Now look heavenward and say: Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ please take (whatever the problem is) from me.

3. Gather the problem and all its residual effects from throughout your body. See the problem gather in your chest area as a black cloud. Gather it all together from your body, mind, and heart. Then see it slowly rise up out the top of your head.

4. See Christ coming toward you. He is smiling. He puts His arm out and the black cloud comes toward him. When it reaches Him, He destroys it. Then he comes to you and puts his arms around you. He tells you that he loves you. You can feel that love radiate warmth throughout your body.

5. Then Ask Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ to fill the void (that the problem left within you) with the light and love of God and the wisdom and talents you will need in this life.

6. Now thank Heavenly Father for all His blessings.

Of Special Note

You can also use the visualization with you acting as proxy for someone else.

It Seems Too Easy to Be True

You may be telling yourself, “This is too easy. If it is true, why are there so many people with mental and physical problems? Why don’t people know about these things? Why don’t I hear about people using this in their lives?”

Many people who have had spiritual healing hold the incident as sacred and do not share it with others. I too hold it sacred, but choose to share it with humankind because I am a healer. I know that individuals who are mentally or physically infirmed are stopped in many aspects of their personal development. Their problems have five physical and mental characteristics that usually accompany them. They are: stress, anxiety, headaches, cognitive impairment, and depression; all of which can and all too often leads to suicide.

I liken the ease of this cure as to the one that was given to the Israelites by Moses. As they wandered in the wilderness, they came upon area with poisonous serpents. Some of the Israelites were bitten and died. So Moses took the problem to the Lord who told him the following:

8. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

9. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. – (Numbers 21:8-9)

Despite the ease of the cure there were those who would not believe they could be cured because of the ease of the solution. Why does the cure have to be hard to seem real? Why would a God that loves us want to heap hardship on top of the physical and mental problems we have? In Deuteronomy 7:9-14 it states:

9. Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

10. And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

11. Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.

12. Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

13. And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

14. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.

15. And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

These promises were given to the Israelites, but God’s promises are for all of us. Peter proves this point as he states in Acts 10:34, “…Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” That means that He treats us all the same. So, give God the chance to heal you!
