Mental Illness Is a Spiritual Experience

December 10, 2019


Mental Illness Is a
Spiritual Experience Mental illness affects many
people in the world, and each person has a unique set of
symptoms. In traditional medical fields, it is thought to be
strictly a chemical imbalance in the mind, with prescription
medication thought to correct this. But while the brain
naturally has a great deal to do with mental illness, the
condition actually goes much deeper and involves something
far more obscure. What is obscured from our view, we
cannot fully understand and tend to fear. We cannot physically
see the causes of mental illness, only the physical
symptoms of anxiety, depression, and psychosis. Many people will
go straight to judgement and then stigmatize those with
mental disorders because of what we cannot physically see.
While mental illness certainly revolves around the mental
component, the spiritual aspect is almost exclusively
overlooked. No conventional treatment will ever recognize
this spiritual aspect, which is the core of our being and what
we are at the deepest level. So only treating the surface, the
physical body, will never truly heal the root cause. What are
these spiritual causes that are not well known or are usually
overlooked? There are a great many causes that have been
identified, yet a plethora of them still exists that we have
not the slightest understanding of. To begin to comprehend
the spiritual causes of mental illness, it is best to
first understand the remedies traditionally used to treat
mental illness. Those who struggle with mental disorders
might be experiencing heightened sensitivity to other individuals
and to their personal environment. They might have
extrasensory abilities and feel unable to control the influences
of unseen energies around them. People like these in our
society are likely to be labeled mentally unstable, and generally
prescribed medication to numb their emotional pain.
Unfortunately, medical intervention can end up closing
the spiritual doorway that natural law had opened for a
reason in this person’s life. That is why medication can
never be the only solution to someone’s problems, since it
only addresses the physical aspect of illness. Psychiatric
medication is not meant to solve the root problem, because it was
developed to function only in this physical domain. Some
people are quite sensitive to the energy in the environment
around them. A category of these people are known as empaths,
individuals who can absorb other people’s emotions, or who have
sensitivity to spirits of the dead. Others who are sensitive
to energy may end up being diagnosed with bipolar disorder
or schizophrenia. They may see or hear things that others
cannot, things that may form in their mind, or reside in the
non-physical domain. People whose chakras are imbalanced
may experience emotional restlessness, feelings of
insecurity, or the kind of severe anxiety found in many
anxiety disorders, or exhibit symptoms of borderline
personality disorder or components of other debilitating
conditions. Chakras are the energy centers of the
non-physical body that are connected to specific points
of the physical body. When imbalance exists at one chakra
level, we are susceptible to an imbalanced life while another of
our chakras becomes overactive to compensate for the lack of
total energy balance. One of the most powerful forms of spiritual
energy alteration of the non-physical body comes from the
physical things that happen to us. Abuse of all kinds is a
core process of energy transfer. Extreme discontentment and
negativity are passed from one person to another via a physical
medium. Violence is a way for one who is troubled and perhaps
hateful of life to pass along that feral hatred to someone
else. Such severe negative energy is infused into the one
being abused, who then is at high risk of becoming an
abuser on some level and feeling worthless as a result.
Without proper cleansing of this negative energy buildup, these
people will continue to suffer in an expanding and unending
cycle of abuse. These repeating cycles of negativity and abuse
are common among individuals suffering from post-traumatic
stress disorder and other trauma disorders. Another source of
energy transference comes from intention, the personal energy
that we put into our thoughts, ideas, actions, and even
into the foods we eat. Putting negative intentions into our
thoughts and actions can turn any positive effort into one
with a negative result. Putting negative intentions into our
food means to eat out of shame or guilt, to consume the food
because we hate ourselves and our bodies, when instead we
should be honoring both. As a result, we put ourselves at
risk of developing many physical health problems, including heart
disease, obesity, and cancer. Our own intention is the key to
our physical health condition. So is the food itself and how
it’s prepared, as well as each person and process that was
involved in its preparation. Animal products have the highest
amounts of negative energy and negative intentions put into
them. This is due to how poorly animals tend to be treated in
the industrial livestock farming system, where they are seen as
commodities instead of living creatures. Negative energy also
resides in many non-animal foods that we consume, due to the
corporate agricultural system in place today that produces
cheaper products, devoid of nutrients and poisoned
with pesticides, that is more profitable than real, healthy
food. Regardless of the food source or the negative energy
already in the food, it’s still possible to cleanse this
negative energy before you consume it. Being thankful for
each step of the manufacturing process, for the money to afford
the food in front of you, and for your body’s ability to
digest the food and absorb its nutrients will help to eliminate
some of the negative energy that resides within your food.
Many alternative, spiritual practices, such as meditation,
yoga, chakra cleansing, reiki, crystals, and so on, can help
you to clear away negativity and promote a proper spiritual
connection that you will find to be stabilizing and fulfilling.
We are all connected to the spiritual realm that is the
basis of our existence. Yet many of us are completely unaware of
this fact. Some people will turn to mundane tasks in order to
gain at least a hollow sense of fulfillment and pleasure in this
physical domain. Others have their spiritual door far too
open, allowing excessive energy to enter from the non-physical
domain into their physical bodies, resulting in an
overload that manifests as mental illness. There is in
fact a natural balance, and finding that
balance is the key.

    I can speak firsthand from my own experience with depression. Medications, at times, are pointless. I've found that the side effects cause far too much grief. I have experienced what my friends call 'mood catching'. When one or more of my friends or anyone for that matter is in a mood, I tend to pick up on those emotions without so much as a spoken word. My mood will then alter. I find myself almost desperate to remedy whatever it is that is causing the emotions of those around me. I suppose at times it might be considered a gift as it does make me a much more compassionate person.

    I have clinical depression and have never even thought to look into something like this. I'm in a position where I cannot afford medication or any sort of treatment so this could be something to experience in the meantime.

    Amen to that ain't that the truth preach it just the facts of the power of truth

    Really good points here! My partner deals with this. Its very complex. He experiences actual delusions and I can say that because they are about me and are false. He swears he sees and hears them though. He also experiences paranormal but I know it is paranormal because I experience them too. He deals with negative attachments that like to feed him delusional thinking. When he's not on his meds he's out of his mind. I dont believe meds are for everyone because like you said, just cause you experience things, doesn't mean you are out of control and need meds. Doctor are quick to label you mentally ill and throw you on meds.

    It is not disease Its condition

    I never suffered from any mental disorder until just a few weeks ago. I suddenly started to feel really anxious for no reason and had the first panic attack in my life, but then two of our cows we had on our farm died in a short amount of time and another one is still really sick. It's like I can feel the negative energy around me and take it in. I also never believed in spirituality before, but this is one of the events that made me question my beliefs

    As above so below… the answer is in Biology. Look up for the 5 biological laws discovered by Dr. Hamer and the schizophrenic constelations that explain what we know as mental illness. Everyting has a perfect biological sense that turns into somehing that appears pathological because our biological code do not meet its needs inside our modern lifestyle. The chakras describe the biological conflicts.

    I’m bipolar and am very psychic. I feel like medication helps me filter what I’m feeling. I’m able to receive more “hits” and my predictions are much more accurate.

    Autumn, could you maybe discuss schizotypal thinking? Do you think it's more of a disorder or simply an extraordinary way of thinking? If a person can live with their mild paranoia etc., I don't see why it'd need to be treated. Society shames on nonconformists a bit too much.

    I have read dozens of self help books. Most with one common thread : mind and body are connected. I have many thoughts on all of this, but right now I'll just say I think what you say has much truth in it. It is tragic that modern medicine is profit driven rather than quality of life driven.

    Do you mind doing a video on getting rid of toxic people from your life? Maybe you have done this but I’m in my 30’s and just realizing how important it is. I’m being careful of who I let into my life. So many bad people will lead to depression and other problems. I know you mentioned this in the video but I have trouble spotting bad people. Thanks if you consider doing a video on this!

    Mental illness is a spiritual problem, turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for spiritual freedom. By going to your local Uckg help center they do power deliverance every Friday to cast demons out.

    I agree, can you share your thoughts on 1 body/1 soul

  • Reply Miss Chloe Jenkins April 17, 2019 at 6:54 am

    My door is wide open and I feel spiritual presence with me everyday, even I can feel their energy and there presence and I can even sense how negative they are to me. I can also sense the positive too. when the negative comes through to my open world I feel like the pressure is too much, I feel like a demon is controlling my body everyday to the point where I have cut myself with knifes, blades, and even turned to attempting suicide. these thoughts and feelings that I feel are way too powerful and my mental health has been going on for nearly 2 years that I have become so attached to the unknown world it feels like I am the Demons/devils daughter in a way. and everything that you described in this video I have.

    I am fascinated by people with mental illnesses , I sometimes feel like I'm mental myself ,is this normal?

  • Reply suzanne tree August 22, 2019 at 3:08 pm

    I totally agree on the spiritual experience. We are energy beings; we are eternal souls living a human experience. I think we dont know much about our energies; i personally dont believe in the label mental illness but we can experience different ideas feelings and energies. We can experience inbalances in different areas and/or also be sensitive. I dont think there are perfect humans and we all struggle on this earth with ideas and energies; good or bad; true or untrue. Some have to face stronger battles against negative forces then others; whether those forces come from other beings or from archons/demons whatever we can call the entities who are not in physical bodys on earth.
