Professional Observations






How Effective is Listening Prayer Therapy with Multiple Personality Disorder?

You have an unusual opportunity here.  Two experienced ministers of deliverance-based inner healing asked me to work with a couple that they had worked with by phone for over a year.  None of us knew that there was a multiple personality disorder / dissociative disorder involved. 

Here are there observations.

Feedback on an Intensive marriage Retreat: Rev. Paul White and his father had done deliverence work with a couple with limited success.  They asked Mr. Hartwell to work with this couple and asked if they could sit in and observe my work.

There were 7 days of meetings with up to 3 hours of listening prayer therapy per day. 

Trust: This took a lot of trust from the couple.  The couple transferred trust from Rev. Paul White and his dad to George Hartwell.  Paul and his dad are humbly stepping back and letting another have a go at it. 

Participants: Six out of seven days Mr. Hartwell worked with the wife.  She experienced a lot of healing, deliverance and integration.  On the final day the husband stepped in.  He was concerned that little could happen in the last 3 hours.  That proved to be wrong.

The husband: The husband experienced significant healing.  He came to realize that a key issue for him was the right to life.  The husband said, "I can see that one of my core issues is the right to life.   I didn't choose life." 

The wifecommented on the difference between an inner healing approach and a deliverence approach.  She said, "What is important is that there was inner healing. In the earlier counseling they threw out a lot of stuff (deliverance) but there wasn't a lot of inner healing."
                She said: "I must admit I never felt the inner healing so strongly. The five year old was totally changed."
               Note: Her inner child - the five year old - heard Jesus tell her "You are free of guilt."  The child's delight was expressed in worshipping Jesus.

Quick Work: Everyone was impressed at how much was accomplished in the time.  They asked "So do things always move this quickly?" One reason that so much is accomplished is the way the method allows the Holy Spirit target what to deal with.
              Rev. White said, "So the precision in dealing with what has to be dealt with is a nice part of this."

Powerful Process:  Mr. White senior said, "This has been quite amazing. It has seemed to short-circuit stuff quite immensely. It has been very powerful, useful and exciting to see it go."
                               He said, "We spent a lot of time (200 hours plus) kicking out a lot of demons. You (George Hartwell) have revisited the places and achieved what we did not achieve."

Integration of multiple personality:  Mr. White senior observed, "isolating the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, year olds and bringing them to the point of being ready to be integrated is major stuff and puts the person on a whole new track, in my mind."
                 Note:  Using Listening Prayer Therapy Mr. Hartwell located memories in a particular year of life.  Over the week healing came to different parts of the wife's personality.  Jesus then brought about an integration of the parts.  

Observer comment:  "She is in a position to begin to take charge of her life rather then let the enemy run it."

Rev. White observation:  "The nice thing from my perspective is that out of the many things in a person's  past and in the aspects of yourself that you are not even aware of, Jesus leads just exactly to the spot that needs to be dealt with. It gets dealt with and then you are to the next spot."
            As Mr. Hartwell did the listening prayer therapy he would step back and lets Jesus lead.  

Wife's observation:  "Going back to a place where I felt the fear of the child. I would not be able to go there if Jesus was not there with me and holding my hand."

Intensive marriage Retreat: Mr. Hartwell does intensive therapeutic work with couples and individuals.  More about intensive therapeutic retreat.
