finding spiritual roots



Spiritual roots can have a tremendous impact on people's lives.  Learning how to identify and release spiritual roots leads to far deeper inner healing than merely releasing trapped emotions.  While we will briefly explain this process here, we highly recommend the Toolkit Basic Training, which explains this process step-by-step.


The main spiritual roots include vows, judgments, unforgiveness, or offenses that the client has created in their lives.  They may also less commonly include soul ties or decrees

A vow is a statement you've made that says, "I will..." I won't..." "I will always..." or, "I will never..."  If you test positive for a vow, you'd test to choose one of these starting statements or something similar.  Then, you'd proceed to ask, "This vow is best described in section...  Locate the chart or tool in the kit then find the column and row if applicable.


Note that Spiritual Roots and other energetic issues are often described with more than one word.  It not the same as finding a trapped emotion, where you'd find just one word and release the emotion.  If you locate a word, keep asking "is there anything else describing this" and add more words until the answer is no.  The process of finding multiple words applies to the other spiritual roots as well. 

With muscle testing, you then determine what kind of statement the words are making.  For example, say you test positive for: "I will always..."  "Vulnerable" and "Conflict."  You could then test if the vow is, "I will always be vulnerable to conflict."  If yes, the client will then renounce the vow, "I let go of and renounce the vow that I will always be vulnerable to conflict."  Then, replace it with a positive truth, "I declare that the strength God provides equips me to face any conflict.  No conflict can separate me from God's love."  Then, test to see if the vow has been released.

A judgment involves judgments we've made about ourselves, others, God, life, an idea, or various institutions.  Whenever a judgment, unforgiveness, or an offense comes up, we should ask if it pertains to "a person, place, thing institution, or idea."

Use the same process of finding multiple words and determining the description of the judgment.  Say you test positive for the words "heartache" and "betrayal."  You may test various subject matters to see judgment is pertaining to, and find it has to do with "relationships."  The judgment may test to be, "Relationships always end up in heartache and betrayal."  Have the client say, "I let go of the judgment that..." and replace it with a positive truth, "Even if people betray me, it doesn't stop God from loving me.  God will never betray me and my identity is securely founded in His love."

Unforgiveness can be towards yourself, another person, God, an institution, or even an idea.  Although similar, the subconscious mind seems to differentiate between "unforgiveness" and "offenses."


An offense may have the added element that you are letting someone or something take your personal power from you by believing that their actions have the power to do so.  

​Soul ties can be formed through unhealthy patterns in relationships, or sinful relationships in general.


A decree is likened to the statement of a king or one in authority, a declaration you've authoritatively made over your life.  Occasionally, you may find negative ones you need to release, but sometimes you may test the need to make a positive one.​
