On Sunday afternoon October 1, 2017 Apostle M. Russell Ballard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints mentioned these words in a general conference to the members of the Church:
“In some places, too many of our people are looking beyond the mark and seeking secret knowledge in expensive and questionable practices to provide healing and support.
An official Church statement, issued one year ago, states: ‘We urge Church members to be cautious about participating in any group that promises—in exchange for money—miraculous healings or that claims to have special methods for accessing healing power outside of properly ordained priesthood holders.’
The Church Handbook counsels: ‘Members should not use medical or health practices that are ethically or legally questionable. Local leaders should advise members who have health problems to consult with competent professional practitioners who are licensed in the countries where they practice.’
Brothers and sisters, be wise and aware that such practices may be emotionally appealing but may ultimately prove to be spiritually and physically harmful.”
Since then many LDS church members have been asking us about this statement and how and if it relates to our work. As noted above, the original statement was issued last year and resulted in a small stir among the LDS community then as well. That stir is the conjecture that this statement applied to energy work. We recognize that those of the LDS faith may be trying to reconcile the definition, meaning and at whom this statement is directed.
First of all, I would also advise caution against “any group that promises—in exchange for money—miraculous healings.”I am not personally aware of what group is being referred to here, but anyone in the healing profession that makes a promise of healing, miraculous or otherwise, is foolish. As far as The Emotion Code and The Body Code, I have taught all our students in every seminar worldwide for the last ten years just the opposite, as these samples slides from our German, English and Spanish seminars show clearly:
