Welcome to another enlightening episode of Flourish-Meant, where we dive deep into the transformative practice of emotional healing through shadow work. Today, we capture a compelling discussion recorded amidst the bustling backdrop of the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville.

Joining me, your host Tina Yeager, are Dr. Michael and Michelle Gannon, esteemed hosts of Talk Doctor TV and pioneers in linking spiritual and psychological health.

Dr. Michael Walsh Gannon, Ph.D., L.C.A.D.C., B.C.P.C.C., has been named one of America’s top-rated counselors by America’s Who’s Who nine times and is one of the most trusted mental health professionals in the United States. He has over thirty years of experience as a counselor and has earned a doctoral degree in biblical counseling (Summa Cum laude) from the Trinity Theological Seminary. 
Dr. Gannon is a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) and has served as clinical or executive director for three non-profit organizations focused on helping counselees get free from drug and alcohol addiction. Dr. Gannon is a Board-Certified Professional Christian Counselor (BCPCC), a presidential member of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), and is professionally credentialed by the International Board of Christian Counselors (IBCC). 
Michelle Gannon is certified through the Christian Healing Certification Program of Global Awakening, a non-profit Christian organization founded by Dr. Randy Clark. She is a speaker and trainer for church prayer teams to help them thrive in the areas of physical healing, inner healing, and deliverance. Michelle has been a biblical prayer minister for over 10 years and has led women’s ministries and served on church leadership teams. She has worked with individuals, married couples, and professional men and women to help them address the relational pain in their lives by learning how to address that pain God’s way. She is currently working on her Masters in Christian Counseling. 

In this episode, we'll explore their innovative approach to overcoming the dark, hidden aspects of ourselves using biblical principles and therapeutic techniques. From addressing the long-lasting effects of recent world traumas on mental health to the intricate processes of trauma healing and forgiving oneself, the Gannons offer insights and practical tools that promise to guide you toward a fuller, more liberated life. Stay with us as we uncover the keys to confronting and healing our inner shadows with faith and courage.

Here are three *key takeaways* from our enriching discussion:

- 🧠 **Understanding Shadow Work**: Dr. Michael Gannon clarified the Christian perspective on shadow work, using biblical insights to tackle inner darkness. They provide a roadmap using journal prompts and other practical tools to bring light to the shadowed parts of oneself.

- 💔 **The Power of Self-Forgiveness**: Michelle Gannon highlighted the crucial role of self-forgiveness in healing. Emphasizing its scarcity in teachings, she guides how acknowledging and forgiving oneself can catalyze deep emotional and spiritual healing.

  • 🛠️ **Practical Healing Tools**: The episode covered various practices, such as trauma tapping and prayer affirmations, to help individuals confront and mend the fragmented parts of their soul affected by fear, anxiety, and past traumas.
