SPIRITUAL ILLNESS NOT MENTAL ILLNESS

When we suffer a past trauma event of any kind, it causes a hole in the soul, robbing us of hope, joy and purpose in life. It is now our history and not a part of our present lives.

We are spiritual immortal beings in these physical mortal beings. in these bodies, we have three responses to danger:

Fight

Flight

Freeze

I believe there is a fourth, but for now, want to expand on the first three responses.

We react to danger with our thoughts and feelings, but they are only thoughts and feelings, they are not real, they can seem real but they are not. they are the response to the danger, cause and effect : something happens [danger/the cause] and we react [the effect/our thoughts and feelings].

The mental health industry and its professionals cannot treat a past event, they can only treat what we present with and so they ask that one question: ‘’how did/does that make you feel?’’; and once the client answers that question they are down the rabbit hole with no wat back.

How we react or respond to sanger is not a mental illness, it might become dysfunctional, problematic and intrusive, but it is and never was the problem.

The problem is “what caused you to feel this way?’’

The fact that the real issue, the problem is in our past, it is now a part of our history, makes the valid argument that we are dealing with a spiritual illness and not a mental illness.

for the past 70 years we haven turned away from spiritual solutions and allowed the mental health industry have free reign at the expense of those persons who have been diagnosed incorrectly and made to believe they are in some way broken and not all there.

It’s time we started giving these persons hope , joy and purpose, by introducing them to a spiritual healing practice which can take as little as one session.

How we respond to danger are the basic survival instincts that make us human and different to the animal kingdom. it is our duty to help such persons to be restored to the beings they are meant to be: God’s children.
