How Can You Tell if This Energy Work is from God?
This energy healing work requires a lot of intuition and "in-tune-ness" with ourselves and God. We particularly need to connect to God. But how do we know or feel assured that our direction is from God?
I believe we should always consider if we are aligned with the Lord, and if we are having the Spirit of the Lord with us. If we have the Spirit with us, and if we feel this work is from God, then we can feel assured that what we are feeling is really from God, not ourselves. So how do we have the most confidence that God is directing us in our energy work?
The answer to this question is whether we have the Spirit of the Lord witnessing to us that we are being led in the right way. I found this article from Elder John Groberg about knowing when you have the Spirit. It is a good list for us to evaluate our feelings. Enjoy!
