And many churches worldwide have implemented it to help Christians experience inner healing and ultimately draw closer to God. But the reactions have been mixed. While some have wholly embraced it and testified to how much it has changed their lives, others have denounced it as unbiblical and warned Christians to stay away. So what is Sozo? The idea was inspired after a healing evangelist, Randy Clark, held a prayer training at the church. Training typically lasts two to four days.

A person can rise no higher than how they think of themselves or perceive something to be. Until their thinking changes on the matter, then they will remain stuck where they are. The Lord is always encouraging us to come up higher, and to believe Him to do what seems to be impossible for us.
Romans tells us that we are transformed by the renewing of the mind. The Word of God renews our minds. Aiko Hormann says in her research. The soul consists of the mind, will and emotions. The heart of man is influenced by both the spirit and the soul. At salvation, our spirits were saved. But our souls are in the process of being reformed and conformed into the likeness of Christ.
The flesh part of us wants to sin and do its own thing. Our flesh carnal nature wars with our spirit. There is the daily battle of the flesh and spirit. Making the decision to yield to the Holy Spirit involves dying to the flesh, dying to selfishness. When someone hurts us, our initial reaction is to operate in the flesh and strike back in anger.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. I battled daily with thoughts of unworthiness and low self-value. I struggled with thoughts of hopelessness.
It was difficult forgetting the past and not continually dwelling on past and present problems. Because of evil words spoken over my life, I battled with strongholds in the mind, believing certain lies of the devil. Although verbal abuse was almost daily for many years and many cruel angry words were said to me, there were a few lies in particular that plagued me the most — day and night. The tape would play over and over again in my mind. I seemed to remain trapped in a prison of these lies, and would weep often because I felt the situation was impossible.
The Lord would confirm to me over and over again things He planned to do in my life. Over the years I received at least fifteen prophecies, maybe more.
I wrote down most of them, but forgot to record some of them. I seemed to give more weight to the lies spoken, then to all the words God kept on confirming to me over and over again. I had to make a decision and choose whose report I was going to believe. I choose to believe what God says. I sure am thankful that God is patient and gracious, and works with us. I was always putting myself down and condemning myself, like being a cruel taskmaster to my own self.
If someone said or did a certain thing that upset me, a trigger mechanism would go off and unhealed traumatic memories would flood my mind and I would experience the emotions related to the event of a particular memory.
The primary area that the enemy targets is our mind. If he can lead us into deception, then he has a certain amount of control over us.
And as was said earlier, we are in life what we think and say. When the devil gets us to believe a lie, then the lie becomes a stronghold in the mind. It entraps us into a prison of our own limited or wrong thinking.
The lie carries more weight than what God says. I first learned about Dr. Aiko Hormann is a Christian research scientist filled with the Holy Spirit who specializes in the functions of the brain. In addition to her medical expertise from her research, she has many years of experience in the area of deliverance and ministering healing to the soul mind, will and emotions.
Hormann explains in detail the correlation between the spirit, soul, and body with the use of visual charts and illustrations. She talks about the war between the flesh and spirit, the condition of the heart, the renewal of the mind, strongholds in the mind, obsessive thought patterns, and how to get free.
She also talks about healing for the emotions and healing for past memories. She talks about the power of thoughts literal power, yet unseen power. Hormann discovered through research and actual studies that thoughts carry more power activity than sound waves emitted from a local radio or television station. Thoughts are very powerful, but words are even MORE powerful. Aiko Hormann talks about the airwave activity of thoughts, depending on positive thoughts or negative thoughts.
If a born again Christian has areas of their soul that are unhealed, especially in the mind, then the devil takes advantage and attacks with oppression, harassment, deception believing lies. Hormann says that sin, old memories, past hurts, negative emotions, etc clog the flow of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and blessings are delayed. When our mind and heart gets unclogged, then the river of the Holy Ghost is no longer dammed up.
She also talks about the parts of the brain that store memories. When something traumatic or hurtful happens, the memory is stored in a certain part of the brain like a computer file.
And not only the memory is stored in a file, but the emotions that go along with the memory are also stored. Hormann gave the names of these parts of the brain there is more than one area of the brain that stores memories. When a trigger mechanism goes off like someone doing something to push your buttons , then that old computer file in the brain comes up and you experience the emotions you originally experienced when the event originally took place.
Hormann explains that actually God has placed within our body three brains that control the body, mind and emotions and explains it in detail in her teaching on the 3 brains: head — mind; commands given to every part of the body heart deepest gut Dr. Aiko Hormann says that when she prays for people concerning the healing of memories and emotions, then she also includes in her prayer the physical aspect. She identifies the exact name of the part of the brain that stores memories, and prays that the file in the brain that stores the old memory would be healed and that the trauma and emotions attached to the memory would be disconnected from the file.
Aiko Hormann said that she once ministered to a woman who had four ongoing issues that she had been battling with for years. Second, she battled with fear. Third, she struggled with severe anxiety. Fourth, whenever her husband would show her affection, even non-sexual, she would jump out of her skin. The marriage suffered.
The first thing Dr. And by a word of knowledge 1 Corinthians , the Holy Ghost revealed to Dr. Aiko Hormann that the woman had been sexually violated as a child. The woman recalled that indeed she had been molested by an uncle. When the root of the issue was revealed, then Dr. Aiko Hormann also prayed for physical healing of the brain where the memory and emotional responses was stored.
And the woman had to release any unforgiveness in order to unclog her soul. The Lord completely healed this woman, and she was set free from all four symptoms. And her marriage was healed too. If you would like to find out more information about Dr.

Aiko Hormann? Aiko Hormann came to the U. In , Hormann became a Christian and started ministering with her husband under the guidance of then Pastor, John Smith, of Faith Tabernacle. While Hormann claims to have received a lot of the answers directly from God, some of those answers are in direct conflict with modern science. There are some significant concerns with regard to the teachings of Hormann.
