    The Missing Link – Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Healing Have you ever felt that your life is hopeless? That you are not good enough, you do not measure up? Have you felt that there is no way forward? Physically, emotionally or spiritually?

That you are not good enough, you do not measure up? Have you felt that there is no way forward? Physically, emotionally or spiritually? When you have tried a thousand different things, methods for healing whether it is for your physical ailment or a spiritual-, mental challenge but nothing helped? I have. Even though I am Christian. More than that a minister! I had this inner voice telling me that it shouldn’t be this way! I have talked to a great number of women who are devout believers, worship God yet the “I am not good enough” defines their lives. I studied mental hygiene, became a zealous fan of CBT, tried to change my mind, and encouraged others to do the same around me. I believed that we are in the trap of our own thoughts and I believed that there I am not a victim, there is a way out. But something was missing, I felt pulled back again and again thus making the changes temporary only. Then I picked up Heather’s first book, “Mind Change”, the missing link. She explained how our brain works and how our subconscious processes the thousands of incoming information in a simple, easily understandable manner. “Our unconscious mind has a bunch of filters that delete, distort, and generalize external events that we see, hear, feel, or read about. These filters have been programmed by our experiences in life and thus distort, delete, and generalize around according to our previous programming. This is what we refer to as ‘our reality’.” It helped me to understand that it is not enough that my conscious mind is thinking differently, but I need to deal with my past experiences, memories, and all the stored “data” from my past. What I loved the most about her first book was that she did not only shared the theory with us but have us practical help, tools, steps that any one of us can take ourselves. For me, science and spirituality can work together. It is amazing to see through the Bible that God has revealed things a long time ago that are now being “discovered” by the scientific community. I was very excited to read Heather’s new book in which I knew she will touch on this topic. But the book surpassed all my expectations! I was amazed at the diligent research that Heather and Kent have done on the Scriptures and their applications. It was heartwarming to read the many passages from the Bible that gave me hope and guidance while being supported by cutting-edge scientific research. “There is nothing new under the sun.” Amazing book! Everyone should read this! It helps you better understand God, gives you hope, guidance, and tools to see that we don’t have to be victims but we can be heroes, the people God dreamed us to be!

    From a theological perspective, the word Metanoia is defined as , a transliteration of the Greek μετάνοια, means after-thought or beyond-thought, with meta meaning “after” or “beyond” (as in the modern word “metaphysics”) and nous meaning “mind” (as in the modern world “paranoia”). It is commonly understood as “a transformative change of heart; especially: a spiritual conversion.”[1] The term suggests repudiation, change of mind, repentance, and atonement; but “conversion” and “reformation” may From a theological perspective, the word Metanoia is defined as , a transliteration of the Greek μετάνοια, means after-thought or beyond-thought, with meta meaning “after” or “beyond” (as in the modern word “metaphysics”) and nous meaning “mind” (as in the modern world “paranoia”). It is commonly understood as “a transformative change of heart; especially: a spiritual conversion.”[1] The term suggests repudiation, change of mind, repentance, and atonement; but “conversion” and “reformation” may best approximate its connotation.[2] In The King James Version of the Bible, its verbal cognate metanoeo/μετανοέω is translated as repent.[3] Whereas, the Metanoia Method is defined as a healing system utilizing the principles of the Bible to change your mind. As Romans 12:2 says, God’s plan is for you to be renewed by the transformation of your mind (metanoia). We incorporate Biblical backing to the science we use. God created our amazing brains. Although I can appreciate the algorithms and analogies the authors used, I found The Metanoia Method to be, metaphorically speaking, a 267 page lesson on re-formating a hard drive (the human mind) that was corrupted with many viruses and worms. Some of those viruses were of an unknown origin that had to be researched through a bevy of paperwork to get the solutions. And our operating systems are the concsious and the subconscious/unconscious mind. (pg. 82) Woven throughout this lesson you will find various definitions of brain functionalities as they attribute/not attribute to our actions. Both writers give their testimonies on where they were in their lives and how they successfully made their turnarounds. In the writers’ demonstrative attempt to explain why many of us, us meaning Christians, have found ourselves in a deadend street, referring to the church as more of a spiritual hospice than what it should be; a hospital—to which I concur. There are more sick and disgruntled people in church than the hospital. The writer then begs the question. “Is this what the church has become to us?” (pg. 71) I think many believers are asking themselves that question today. When they find themselves in a stalemate with their perception of God because, according to the writer, “we have not yet acknowledged the fact that our upbringing has a direct effect on how we conceptualize God and discern the scriptures.” He is convinced that once we accept this fact we will be willing to observe our views from a higher perspective. (pg. 98) In this 267 page construct you will find a 19 Chapter expedition designed to help you reprogram your mind or rewire your mind from living a life that is a reflection of your own perspective to living a life that is full of all the intricate attributes culminating a reflection of God. In other words, How we see God and what kind of God we worship has a massive impact on how we live and feel. (pg. 114) In all truthfulness, I opened this book with an opened mind, enthusiam and hope. As I am searching for answers concerning the church and its effective function in the life of the believer as it relates to me on a personal level. The writer says, “The answer is in Jesus’ teachings. We must get back into alignment with how we were created to live and thrive: to love God—mind, body and spirit.” (pg. 68) Going back to the root is quintessential in discovering the true adherence to God’s word correctly. Instead of killing ourselves by accepting old teachings and ineffective traditions. We need to nail the coffin shut on old identities, beliefs, legacies and lies. Then with that new mindset we have a clearer picture on how to address the “how” and the “why” that is our driving force. Then the real healing can begin. That’s what Heather did. (pg.37) If you like reading intellectual books with a clinically psychological spin; that has you pencil to papering your way heart first into your issues. The Metanoia Method is definitely the book for you. By all means pick it up—it may serve you well. Some people have to take this route in order to get their breakthrough. Hands on sometimes serves as a better memory reinforcement method than memorization itself. After all, “Changing your mind, rewiring your neuropaths are the nuts and bolts of The Metanoia Method.” (pg. 236) This journey will have you feeling like your laying on a psychologist’s sofa one moment. Then the next you’ll think you’re in a laboratory and sometimes you may feel as though you’re in a classroom environment. Yet, somewhere in those three environments you are sure to find some semblence of yourself. With all the different software hacks there is no way you could be missed; i.e. Memories are the building materials you use to construct your current and future realities. (pg. 231) At best you will walk away with several golden nuggets such as how Greek translations can change a scripture in its entirety (for those of us who don’t read Greek-Hebrew bibles), what repentance means as it relates to a changed mind, or how powerful our thoughts are. At worst, you will grasp the conceptualization of the red and blue pill as it results in our choices. Taking that red pill will have you going down the rabbit hole of your mind, in search of yourself. The author admitted he’d been in “the Matrix” for too long and needed to unplug. “For too long I ignored the voices, the signs, the nudges of the Holy Spirit.” (pg. 45) And the consequence of that action is we end up staying in a world created by our fears instead of faith. However, I do agree with the writer’s assessment at the books beginning, “…something in our collective religious culture needs to be re-evaluated.” (page16) Whether The Metanoia Method is the answer to that issue with total healing of believers…The jury is still out on that.

    Verified Purchase I was very impressed with the vulnerability of Heather and Kent McKean, to share their personal experiences. I appreciate their journey and their desire to share the biblical principles paired with scientific principles that they have implemented in their lives and have used to benefit others.

Our bodies truly Verified Purchase I was very impressed with the vulnerability of Heather and Kent McKean, to share their personal experiences. I appreciate their journey and their desire to share the biblical principles paired with scientific principles that they have implemented in their lives and have used to benefit others. All of us are affected in one way or another from our upbringing, environment, experiences, etc., Each of these shape who we are and how we filter our everyday experiences. Our bodies truly do keep the score and this works helps to provide access the resources that can release these emotions, experiences and traumas. Some pearls of wisdom: -Who we were created to be...God made it so simple, love him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength (Deuteronomy 6: 4-5, Matthew 22:37-40) -Fear, Insecurity, Guilt, Shame (F.I.G.S.) . "As human beings today, we have covered ourselves with so many leaves of F.I.G.S. that it's hard to even know who were were created to be." -True repentance is a mind change, which start from within...Instead of doing the right thing or else...I had to learn to love God because he first loved me (1 John 3:) -Feedback: "itself is not weaponry or danger. Its just feedback. What I do with that feedback is what matters. This is a healing moment." -Victim Mindset: the power is outside us; Victor Mindset: the power is within us ... "Though we cannot always control what people do around us or to us, we can have complete authority over the way we feel about it and what we do with. Instead of giving others the power over how we feel, we take responsibility and realize the choice is ours." -"The predicament is never God's creation (you and me) The dilemma is simply the filters, the sin, the deviations from who were realy are. THat is hwat Jesus came to set us free from." This book shows you how to reframe your thought processes to live a fuller, more joyful, complete life, in spite of those circumstances! I highly recommend The Metanoia Method.

This book does an amazing job of exploring both the principles of neuroscience and of scripture and how a transformative shift in our thinking can revolutionize life. Truthfully, I found myself resisting a few of the concepts of the book and will continue to wrestle with this in the coming months. What I could not deny is my penchant for negative thinking and that this has thus far not produced a life to the full. I had previously read their book Mind Change and had seen a change in my mental health by applying many of the principles. I had thought this book would be more of the same with some scripture references. I was wrong. It was a completely new book. True the main points are the same but the way they fleshed out scripture in support of their method was innovative and engaging. My word for this new year is Thrive. I am excited to get to work on embracing God’s goodness and really create the future I believe he wants me to have!

    The authors, Heather and Kent McKean just saved each reader of their book the thousands of hours of time and the tens of thousands, if not the hundreds of thousands, of dollars it would take to find, read, understand, apply and then hopefully experience the life-changing information and tools they’ve otherwise packaged up here from the greatest minds throughout history who have also labored to help people renew their minds; the greatest of whom is Christ.

And they did it all through their heart-warming stories, easy to understand science, and a simple to apply method of emotional, physical and spiritual transformation. Simply put, I like to call this book the Pinterest recipe for personal transformation and spiritual freedom. Their Metanoia Method matches up proven brain-changing techniques for healing pain, addictions, trauma and illness with biblical truth and principles of God’s love for his amazing creation: Us!!! I’ve literally read it all, went to all the expensive doctors to find physical healing for my body, brain and heart, and got pretty much nowhere; actually even worse and also broke. This book lead me back to the real source of healing; our Creator. And praise HiM that I’ve healed in so many ways...and getting stronger and stronger every day. So stop chasing more and more gurus and modalities and come to Jesus to have peace, rest and healing. Thanks to Heather and Kent for reminding the world that healing from God is simple and real... and that dudes like Tony, Joe, Elkhart and Bruce are just borrowing info from the real teacher...Jesus. Peace and healing to all who open their hearts and minds...and then read and apply. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The book explored the original Hebrew and Greek texts and answered many biblical questions that I’ve wrestled with for years. “If the church is a place for love and restoration, why is everyone so sick and depressed? If there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, then why does it seem like the goal is to leave a sermon feeling guilty? If we are God’s creation, made in his image, then why do Christians seemed so fixated on their sin?” This book is an invitation to choose how you want to live the rest of your life. It’s packed full of both the scientific and biblical explanations of: how our minds process information, the impact our thoughts have on our lives and our health, how we as Christians can be transformed by the renewing of our minds, and how we can change the things that no longer serve us. I can’t recommend it enough!!

    I loved this book so much that after reading it, I bought an extra 6 copies to give to people that I thought would find it beneficial! There are some many parts of the book that I want to go back to, that I have highlighted them all in different colours, I noticed that another reviewer said that she felt as though she had highlighted the whole book!

It’s an awesome read! Ever got to the end of a great book and feel like the ending left you feeling flat? Definitely not “The Metanoia Method”, it ends by promising that this is not just the end, it is in fact the beginning..... “Welcome to the end…and the beginning.” (quote) . I have purchased 6 copies

    It is hard to put into words the impact this book has had on me. It has given me hope, hope that I can be free from my dehabilitating migraines that have plagued me for 30 plus years; hope that I can lose the weight that I am really great at keeping on no matter what I try; and hope that I can have a better relationship with my mother, daughters, and most importantly, God.

This book has helped me see that I have the power to change and become the person God really wants me to be, that I have been settling for less. Not only that, it walks you through the “How” , in addition to the “Why” with practicals you can actually do. Here is to becoming the victor instead of a victim of my past experiences!

    Although I have not yet finished this book it has already changed my life! This has been the exact connections with God and the mind I having been looking for for 5 year! I have been through so much therapy, including hypnotherapy, and nothing has changed me this much! I am in awe of this book and the massive leaps and changes it has enables me to do! I am definitely recommending this to every single person I am talking too!

    This book is amazing. It brings clarity and truth to overcome the false teachings and beliefs most people cling to. In the light of scripture and a relationship with God, this book takes the best methods and brings them together to help a person heal and live their best life. The science is well explained and the examples are relatable. Everyone could benefit from this information. I can’t wait to put it to use.

How incredible to really begin to realise how God has always been at the forefront of Science and Neuroscience. What wonderful insight into how the Mind works and how “God designed our bodies to be messengers of the Mind”... the choice is ours whether we choose to listen to what our bodies are trying to tell us. Realising how Scripture, the Mind and the Body align is truly awesome and has given me a new found hope, that I can truly change and move past all that has hindering my growth... after all God has instilled in me the “Power to grow” and be the person he created for me to be. You too can learn these life changing concepts, all you need to do is get your hands on this book! . Are you desperately wanting to change and grow?... Go ahead I dare you!
