The overall message of this book is this: Victory is realistic and within our grasp no matter the violation. As a sexual abuse survivor, I know that true and lasting healing from sexual trauma involves a recognition of the importance of both the physical and spiritual dimensions of wholeness. What's unique about this book, and what I haven't personally encountered in any other book or through any other counseling in the 35 years I've been on this journey, is that the physical is tethered to the spiritual. Not only do we need to renew our minds and recover our hearts, but we must also retrain our bodies. This book combines the mighty power of wielding The Sword of The Spirit and prayer with the physical component of essential oils and loving touch to address the memory factor hidden in the body.
Essential oils have been known since Biblical times. In fact, to quote Dr. Axe, "at least 33 specific essential oils and aromatic oil producing plants are mentioned in the Bible, and the word 'incense' is mentioned 68 times in Scripture. Psalm 45:7-8, Proverbs 27:9, Isa. 63:1 and Hebrews 1:9 all reference oils in some way as in 'the oil of joy' and 'the oil of gladness, ' and they speak of how oils 'rejoice the heart.' "
Chronicling her journey from abuse to faith, Cora Blalack shares how essential oils mentioned in God's Word have played a major role in her emotional healing; incorporating objective Scriptural truth as the basis for her new life in the Lord Jesus Christ. Her work is a powerful testimony to God's transforming power through His love, mercy, forgiveness, and grace.
