In the 1940’s Agnes Sanford invented a new ministry called “inner healing.” She claimed that during an out-of-body experience that supposedly brought her back to before her birth as a pre-existent soul, Jesus asked her to come into the world to relieve suffering. Sanford gained her inspiration from very questionable sources such as Theosophy, New Thought, the depth psychology of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, and Emmet Fox of the Unity School of Christianity (New Age). She became the mentor of John Sandford, whose inner healing theories are still followed by many.
