Healing the Wounded Soul
Arline Westmeier, author
The eidetic memories of our traumatic experiences remain recorded like unresolved “videos” in our conscious and unconscious memory. These memories of traumatic experiences influence our lives and families by projecting their pain onto our daily experiences. No parents can fully meet their children’s basic needs to receive love, pardon, protection and praise. This causes varying degrees of feelings of inferiority, which we try to compensate with equal degrees of superiority through such things as bragging, possessiveness and possessions, perfectionism, and so on. Dr. Westmeier deals with the effects of such problems as dysfunctional families, sexual abuse and rape, abortion guilt, being an unwanted child and much more. When we open these memories to Jesus, he who came to carry our sins to the cross also carries our fears, anxieties, griefs, and sorrows, giving us a new ending to the “videos” in our memories. By giving us His forgiveness, the “unforgivable” can be forgiven.
