From the Author
TheWhole-Life Confession is based on Part One of Forty Weeks: An Ignatian Path to Christ with Sacred Story Prayer.This very dynamic and holistic method helps you integrate your spiritual,intellectual and psychological/ emotional history. Those who have completed ithave been amazed how it helped them "see their whole life" as if for the firsttime.
TheWLC method is grounded in Ignatian spirituality. This means it is focused on helping those who take thejourney to access areas of their lives where they need God's healing the most.For some people, this means remembering things they may have pushed out ofconsciousness. It can create anxiety to encounter experiences from your past.However If they still have energy that upsets you, it means they can greatlybenefit from deeper healing by the Divine Physician.
Sincethe goal of the Whole-Life Confession journey is to bring healing, hope andpeace, each person must determine whether they want to take this journey. Somemay simply not be ready for it and that is fine.
St.Ignatius' spirituality rests on the interior freedom of the individual. No onecan/should be asked to do that which they don't want to do.
Butthis is the balancing act in making a decision whether to engage the WLCjourney. You should make a discernment based on a peaceful heart, not ananxious or fearful heart. The enemy of human nature (St. Ignatius' name forSatan) uses fear to keep us from making choices that bring us closer to God andour own peace. So yes, choose freely, but choose in peacefulness and not fromfear. If you proceed with the journey, pay attention to the frequentinvitations to say aloud: Be Not Afraid!
