Part 1: How Spirituality Explains Psychosis.
How do we discern between the voices in our heads? A question that for centuries has led to people being called, “Psychotic” or “Schizophrenic.” How does the development of telepathy tie in to modern psychological diagnoses? Over the past year and a half, I have been led to study the voices in my own head in order to achieve a higher understanding of my experiences as my spiritual abilities awakened. Telepathy is a real phenomenon associated with the development of the chakras. Many people are mistakenly labeled "crazy," due to a lack of spiritual education. I hope this article sheds light on the multi-dimensional human-being and how we can maintain stability in an ever-changing spiritual landscape.
Disputing Modern Psychology
I choose this excerpt from “Understanding Mania,” in order to shed light on the abundant presence of miss-information on the World Wide Web. While the focus of this article is on being the guardian of one’s own mind, I will first give an example of how modern-day psychology must be studied from a holistic and spiritual perspective in order to properly understand the advancing soul. Many symptoms of what is labeled as, “mania,” can be better understood when one is able to study his or her own thoughts in depth.
“More severe symptoms include hallucinations (hearing, seeing, or otherwise sensing the presence of stimuli that are not there) and delusions (false personal beliefs that are not subject to reason or contradictory evidence and are not explained by a person's cultural concepts). Feelings of paranoia, during which the patient believes he or she is being persecuted or monitored by the government or a hostile force, may be present. Intense and unusual religious beliefs may also be present, such as a patient's strong insistence that they have a God-given role to play in the world, a great and historic mission to accomplish, or even that they possess supernatural powers”(1).
False assumption number one: “hallucinations (hearing, seeing, or otherwise sensing the presence of stimuli that are not there)”
There are many of us on this planet who are spiritually evolved and possess many "psychic" abilities. These abilities include seeing at a distance, hearing at a distance, smelling at a distance, feeling at a distance and knowing at a distance. The ability to hear at a distance is known as “clairaudience.” Here is where the term schizophrenia and words like “hallucination” become an inaccurate and unjust attack on spiritually in-tune individuals. The focus of this paper is on hearing at a distance.
The ability of the sixth sense of hearing, or telepathy, is awakened through the fifth chakra. Chakras are an integral part of the human bio-field, or energy body. Richard Jelusich, Ph.D. writes in his book, Eye of the Lotus, "The chakras are inter-dimensional energy vortexes that regulate the flow of life-force energy between and among dimensions in a two-way movement”(2). While the word dimensions may cause you to raise your eyebrows, the premise that our three dimensional perspective is only a basic reality has been theorized multiple times in the field of quantum physics. As is explained by Dr. Richard Jelusich, chakras are comparable to transformers that convert PSI energy into Qi or life force energy. When our human self meets our spiritual or higher self, the chakras awaken, resulting in “psychic” abilities. Dr Jelusich emphasizes that an individual adept in their fifth chakra has, “the ability to telepathically engage with other people, plants and animals and can engage in prophecy"(3).
Spiritual evidence based on the human experience tells us that the sixth senses, like the other five senses, create real, valid experiences. Therefore, there is no such thing as hearing, seeing or otherwise sensing something that isn’t there. Every human experience is real, whether it is taking place in the three-dimensional earth plane or another plane of existence such as fourth or fifth dimensional reality. Author Colleen Mauro states in her book, Spiritual Telepathy: Ancient Techniques to Access the Wisdom of Your Soul, “In experiments dating back to the nineteenth century, scientist have validated two types of telepathy: instinctual, or feeling-based, telepathy and mental, or mind-to-mind, telepathy. According to Wisdom teachings, there is also another, higher type of telepathy called soul-to-soul, or spiritual, telepathy”(4). Mauro goes on to discuss scientific studies and experiments that have been conducted across different cultures in the world to validate the existence of telepathic communication. Undoubtedly, we can hear outside of our physical ears; the question becomes, where do the voices, thoughts or energy forms come from?
False assumption number two: "delusions (false personal beliefs that are not subject to reason or contradictory evidence and are not explained by a person's cultural concepts)."
A delusional thought process may be brought about by a miss-interpretation of an incoming energy transmission, along with a deep-seated personal belief that the interpretation chosen is correct. Delusion may result from receiving a message and assigning a very literal and personal meaning to it. For example, when I first started to receive the message "Jesus," I had just begun my spiritual awakening and immediately wondered whether I was Jesus of Nazareth. I then learned that I was not the only human being who came to question whether he/she was Jesus. Ultimately, I realized that I was being asked to learn about and communicate with Jesus of Nazareth, as we would be working together closely.
By learning to watch one’s thoughts, as will be explained later in this paper, one can begin to see how merely allowing a thought to be the guiding force, rather than taking the adequate time to reflect upon it, can lead to experiences of delusion. The individual must learn to not interpret his or her thoughts from an extreme point of view, leaving room to feel whether a thought is based in practicality. When one is caught in extremist thinking it is helpful for the individual to take a more objective outsider role. For example, a “baseball player,” sitting up on the bleachers for a short time is able to watch more carefully the balls or thoughts that are flying around the “ball-field,” before going back into the game of thinking. Instead of allowing unknown thought forms to take the reins of the mind, separating oneself into the player and the observer can help one decide on the best possible action, or non-action for the thought. Nonetheless, if one believes that he/she is in fact as important as Jesus of Nazareth, taking a more balanced approach to realizing and expressing one’s true gifts would be the preferred route to manifestation; not assuming a purely ego-elevated sense of capability.
False assumption number three: “Feelings of paranoia, during which the patient believes he or she is being persecuted or monitored by the government or a hostile force, may be present.”
Paranoia is a symptom that piggy-backs on fear. It can be due to obsessive focus on an undesirable scenario where the individual feels his or her life is being threatened. There may or may not be interference from external thought forms involved in initiating these feelings, as external events and fearful thinking can also be valid triggers. As you awaken to truth, it becomes more obvious that we are definitely being monitored by the government; from wiretapping to internet data collection, it’s no secret that control and paranoia are at play in the government’s actions. This is after-all, the dawn of a new era, and the powers that be exhibit much fear over not being able to control, "we the people," as we evolve both spiritually and technologically.
In dealing with the experience of paranoia, the goal is to know when your thoughts and emotions are creating a false threat. Through focused study of one’s thoughts and beliefs, as well as a consistent practice of prayer and communion with God, one can achieve a higher realization which can lessen the paranoia and neutralize any perceived threats. It is also important to understand the origin of self-created thoughts that lead to paranoia. For example, are they a reaction to an external source such as the news? I recommend that people who are extra sensitive and susceptible to paranoia refrain from watching most news programs. If there were in fact an outside entity interfering with one’s mind, the subject would then begin meditation and thought watching to see what is causing the paranoia, as I will discuss in detail in part two.
False assumption number four: “Intense and unusual religious beliefs may also be present, such as a patient's strong insistence that they have a God-given role to play in the world, a great and historic mission to accomplish, or even that they possess supernatural powers.”
Might I be bold enough to state that we all have a God-given role to play in this world? Yes, in fact we do! No soul comes to Earth without something important to accomplish. We are all here to evolve mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We are always here to make history and pave the path toward creating a healthier, more accepting and loving world. Supernatural powers are an inherent part of our God-given spiritual nature, development and evolution. Therefore, it is my firm belief that practitioners in the field of psychology be well educated in telepathy and resulting phenomena which are wrongly labeled as “psychosis.” There is a great difference between “psychic,” and “psychotic,” and it is prime time that we understand how to properly respond to and support spiritually gifted individuals.
