Letting the world be your teacher.
Since I am going through what I believe to be a spiritual emergenceI am reading a lot on the topic. I want to continue to educate others. That what we sometimes call depression, bi-polar, psychosis, schizophrenia, might actually be a significant transformation in consciousness and a necessary stage on the path of human development.
Particularly if you have suffered from a mental illness or treat those with a mental illness. You might also like to read this short post Beyond Medication, Holistic Psychiatry.
Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born. These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.
One of the things Dr. I was so shocked. This was in complete opposition to the way his culture views such a situation. What a loss that a person who is finally being aligned with a power from the other world is just being wasted. In fact, psychic abilities are denigrated.
When energies from the spiritual world emerge in a Western psyche, that individual is completely unequipped to integrate them or even recognize what is happening.
The result can be terrifying. Without the proper context for and assistance in dealing with the breakthrough from another level of reality, for all practical purposes, the person is insane. Heavy dosing with anti-psychotic drugs compounds the problem and prevents the integration that could lead to soul development and growth in the individual who has received these energies.
They were really fierce about that. Thus, the spiritual crisis ends with the birth of another healer. The result was the sustaining of the initial disorder of energy and the aborting of the birth of a healer.
They have to try harder. Those who develop so-called mental disorders are those who are sensitive, which is viewed in Western culture as oversensitivity. The frenetic pace, the bombardment of the senses, and the violent energy that characterize Western culture can overwhelm sensitive people.
With the clearing of their energy field, the person no longer picks up a flood of information and so no longer has a reason to be scared and disturbed, explains Dr.
Then it is possible to help the person align with the energy of the spirit being attempting to come through from the other world and give birth to the healer.
The blockage of that emergence is what creates problems. This is why it can be really scary, and I understand why this culture prefers to confine these people.
There are negative energies as well, which are undesirable presences in the aura. In those cases, the shamanic approach is to remove them from the aura, rather than work to align the discordant energies.
Crazy in the USA, Healer in Africa To test his belief that the shamanic view of mental illness holds true in the Western world as well as in indigenous cultures, Dr.
Alex was an year-old American who had suffered a psychotic break when he was He had hallucinations, was suicidal, and went through cycles of dangerously severe depression. He was in a mental hospital and had been given a lot of drugs, but nothing was helping.
He was even able to participate with healers in the business of healing; sitting with them all day long and helping them, assisting them in what they were doing with their clients.
He spent about four years in my village. The fact that aligning the energy worked to heal Alex demonstrated to Dr. After the ritual, Alex began to share the messages that the spirit being had for this world.
No one had thought he would ever be able to complete undergraduate studies, much less get an advanced degree. It was an emergency call. His job and his purpose was to be a healer.
He said no one was paying attention to that. There has to be a way in which a little bit of attention beyond the pathology of this whole experience leads to the possibility of coming up with the proper ritual to help people.
Longing for Spiritual Connection A common thread that Dr. In most cases, the spirit is connected to nature, especially with mountains or big rivers, he says.
They bring that stone back for the rest of the ritual and then keep it as a companion; some even carry it around with them. Sometimes it is as simple as carrying a stone.For over 50 years, the World Future Society has been at the forefront of defining what it means to embrace a Futurist Mindset.
