Just as land can become defiled by what happens on it, and plants are affected by what they sense, the cells of our bodies also record what happens to us, both good and bad. Our bodies apparently remember every cut and blow, pain and trauma, physical and emotional, that it has experienced.
However, we can use our authority and order (command) our body to release or let go of any individual body memory that the Lord brings to our mind that has negatively affected us. When dealing with a body memory, the same pain or emotion from the original event may appear again. Laying our hands on the affected part may help in the healing.
Here are some situations that can produce negative body memories:
a) Shots or Operations
b) Cuts or Blows
c) Being yelled at or feeling threatened or in danger
d) Dental Work
Apparently, people that have received organ transplants and even blood transfusions from other people have also received body memories from these people.
There are a number of scriptures that refer to writing things in our minds and hearts and that the life is in the blood. Whatever God writes are positive body memories that we need to keep.
1. This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Jeremiah 31:33
2. Any Israelite or any alien living among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth, because the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, “You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.” Leviticus 17:13-14
3. Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 7:2-3
4. This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds. Hebrews 10:16
5. You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. II Corinthians 3:2-3
6. My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:1-3
Prayer: “Lord, I ask that You bring to my mind an incident from my past that produced a negative body memory that needs to be dealt with.” Some pleasurable body memories need to be released too if they were from sinful activity. When a memory comes to mind, say: “I command my (whatever the body part is) to release the negative body memory that is associated with (whatever happened). I order my (body part) to let go of this memory and not be affected by it any more. I ask that any damage that was done when this event occurred be healed and that I will not be influenced any more by this event.”
If you have received a blood transfusion (or an organ transplant), say: “I command the blood that I received in the blood transfusion to release all the body memories, drugs and diseases that it carried from the person donating the blood.
If there was a lot of physical abuse from a specific person, say the following prayer, identifying the person responsible distinctly (like my first husband Bob), and put their name and title in the blank. Be sure and check for any unforgiveness or judgment first.
Prayer: I command my muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones, and any other part of my body that was affected, to release the body memories from the blows (and the torture) that I received from ______. I command my mind, emotions, muscles and glands to release the effect of the loud yelling and name-calling and threats that I experienced from ______. I refuse to believe that those negative words are true, because what the Bible says about me is the truth. I say that these past events will no longer influence me or affect my view or trust that I have of (men/women) now. I loose the peace of God into my body to replace the negative emotions and body memories from these events.
You may want to study this topic further. May I suggest that you look up Paul Pearsall, MD and his study on Organ Transplants. He also wrote a book “The Heart’s Code.”
