The Crazy Mental Health ‘Industry’

Why healers are needed

Is free thinking a mental illness?

Take a relatively new mental illness ‘label’ called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.  Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

Once that was a ‘personality trait’ called a rebel (or a revolutionary, political protester, nonconformist). Someone who challenges authority to effect social change, or rejects spiritual systems that do not serve inner needs.

In the last 50 years, the DSM-IV has gone from 130 to 357 mental illnesses. WTF.. Just a question.. are new “mental illnesses” created for political repression?

And why does the media portray mental illness as dangerous, when the people I’ve met with bipolar, depression, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia or who have experienced a spiritual crisis have been the most aware, intelligent, creative, caring, gentle and soulful people I have ever met.

It’s a shame they are duped to believe they are ‘sick’ instead of sensitive, and that they need meds when the majority would do well with loving support, gentle guidance, someone who listens and cares and the time to heal.

In 2013 an estimated 44 million adults in the US had any mental illness, and 10 million suffered from a serious mental illness in the past year.

According to a study, the general population believe the cause of mental illness is childhood abuse, trauma, adult life crisis, or series of difficult events like loss of income, poverty, death of a loved one, trauma etc..  but according to the medical society it is due to a serious brain chemical imbalance. (To me any brain imbalance is by far a secondary issue and should be treated as secondary).

New mental illnesses identified by the DSM-IV include arrogance, narcissism, above-average creativity, cynicism, and antisocial behavior!  In the past, these were called “personality traits,” but now they’re diseases.

Are these symptoms of a culture over-diagnosing and overmedicating?

A Washington Post article observed that, if Mozart were born today, he would be diagnosed with ADD and “medicated into barren normality”.

Jesus would have above average creativity (as an illness), dissociative disorder, schizophrenia, God complex, schizoaffective disorder, and not considered a spiritual teacher or on a shamanic path. He would also be medicated to barren ‘normality’.

What is normal?

Are we being mentally and spiritually oppressed? Is our culture pro-healing? Does our culture accept freethinkers, or are we just barely out of the dark ages?

According to the DSM-IV, the diagnosis guidelines for identifying oppositional defiant disorder are for children, but adults can just as easily suffer from the disease.  This should give any freethinkers reason for worry.?

As an example, the Soviet Union used new “mental illnesses” for political repression.  People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Party developed a new type of schizophrenia.  They suffered from the delusion of believing communism was wrong.  They were isolated, forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bring them back to sanity.

When the last edition of the DSM-IV was published, identifying the symptoms of various mental illnesses in children, there was a jump in the diagnosis and medication of children.

Some American states have laws that allow protective agencies to forcibly medicate, and even make it a punishable crime to withhold medication.  This paints a chilling picture for those of us who are nonconformists.

The labeling of freethinking and nonconformity as mental illnesses has a lot of potential for abuse.  It can easily become a weapon in the arsenal of a repressive state, and the media only feeds that picture with fear. ‘Out of control’ mentally ill people go on shooting sprees. The real fact is that ‘mentally ill’ people are much more likely to have been the victims of violence than the perpetrators of community violence.

So what is this all about.. fear, corporate greed, political control, lack of compassion, the easiest fix for a difficult problem, or that those with no heart (empathy) or wisdom are in control..they do say that sociopaths/ narcissists are always at the corporate top, and that sociopaths don’t suffer from mental illness because they’re the ones that cause it in everyone else .

Any opinions..

To me it’s those that have suffered and healed who can help change this crazy system. As we heal, we are the educators and healers. It’s time to shine a light and get out of the dark ages..

I wish these images were considered an act of terrorism. Then maybe the world leaders would have got together and figured out a way to solve the issues of millions of children and adults dying of starvation each year. It’s not like it’s new, these images made me feel sick as a child 40+ years ago..

And I don’t believe the dollar a day scheme is at all the answer – crazy and it hasn’t worked so far.

My belief all world leaders should spend time in 3rd world countries, living the lifestyle so to speak. Like on survivor reality TV. Maybe give them a baby and a few children each and the challenge is to keep themselves and their babies alive, or maybe they should take along their own children – so they can really live it.

It seems to be okay that people starve.. actually we’ve been desensitised to it for years. It’s quite acceptable..  but none of this has ever made sense to me…and it seems nobody really questions it..?

I simply do not believe that the problem is too big for the combined resources of the world and it’s leaders to solve..

I do often wonder if they were images of white children dying if that would make a drastic difference..

Ancestral Healing

 Healing your Spirit 

Do you feel strongly connected to an era in history, or to a certain country, person or family from the past. Some people have dreams, flashbacks or visions that are so real that they feel like memories about times in history.

A country you’ve never visited feels like home, people you randomly meet feel like family, and some people feel like enemies.

For sensitive people there may be very good reason for this. We have the ability to reconnect with our lineage and therefore heal our ancestral past.

In order to create good health and to heal fully sometimes it means ‘healing the past’. Most hereditary illnesses have come from a hereditary mindset.

In this sense history really can repeat itself.

Ancestral healing involves healing your ancestors’ unresolved emotional issues, problems or trauma. In so doing, it releases you from any energetic patterns that link you to them – patterns that can have an inhibiting or disruptive influence on your life today.

This Healing process is important because we are impacted by emotional and energetic patterns from prior generations in our family. Some of these can create obstacles in our lives, blocking our pathway to joy, abundance, authentic power and unlimited possibilities.

Since energy is never lost, but simply changes form over time, emotional issues or problems that were not dealt with by your ancestors, or not fully resolved, can ‘hover’ in your energy field today, creating an imbalance or roadblock – also known as a healing opportunity.

Ancestral Healing can transform energetic patterns that are not in your highest good, or are preventing you from carrying out your soul’s mission and life’s purpose. If you are experiencing recurring patterns where things get in the way of feeling satisfied, enriched or successful, then ancestral Healing may be the missing link that can free you to attain personal fulfillment.

Revering our ancestors

Most indigenous cultures believe that their ancestors are a vital force in their lives. This is especially true among Native Americans and the Aborigines. For example, the Navajo honor the perspective of seven generations of their ancestral lineage when making a significant decision that affects their family or community. Even though the ancestor’s body is no longer alive, that person’s soul is thought to be very much alive.

Making peace

Ancestral Healing is based on the belief that what happened in your family, before your current life, is present or alive in your energy field today. Accordingly, any unresolved conflict your ancestors had – including unhealed emotional wounds, damaging judgments and other limitations – may be in your energetic grid, since this is part of the larger energy pattern of your entire family.

Ancestral Healing allows us to make peace with the members of our family, going back many generations.

Healings generally go back 3 generations but occasionally involve 10 or 15 generations of family members, dating back hundreds, if not thousands of years.

Healing = Freedom

By connecting with your ancestors in this profound way – expressing love, compassion and gratitude, and forgiving them for whatever they may have done, thought, said, felt or experienced that needs to be healed – you can release and free both them and yourself. In so doing, you can break any energetic cords or patterns that are no longer serving you, and turn your life around in a most positive way.

Media Conditioning and Moral Decline?

There is not a lot that feeds our soul coming out of the mainstream media today.

Not a lot of examples of high morals, beauty, self respect, healthy love and sexuality.

Are we being slowly conditioned to tolerate the darker side of life and narcissism as the ‘norm’ by the media?

 Many people suffer depression due to moral confusion.

I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots. -Albert Einstein

Media Conditioning

Lust over Love

Gluttony over Self Control

Greed over Charity

It is good business sense to produce something cheaply so as to make a maximum profit and remain competitive in the market. But where do we draw the line? Third world workers are paid so little that they can barely survive on their wages, let alone care for the families they may have. Will the wages eventually disappear and will these people be forced to work and receive no compensation. Free market capitalism in a globalized, ever more industrialized world creates slavery.

 Good vs. Evil

Light vs. Dark

 Go to the dark side or to the light!  This just made me laugh!
