“Taking Control of the Thoughts in Your Mind: How Spirituality explains Psychosis, Part 1.”
By: Shira Notes
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 development of the chakras. Many people are mistakenly labeled 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.
Part 1: 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 on this article is on being the guardian of one’s own mind, I first give an example of how modern day psychology must be studied from a holistic and spiritual perspective. Many “symptoms” of 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.” (4)
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 hold many "psychic" abilities. These abilities include seeing at a distance, hearing at a distance, smelling at a distance, tasting at a distance, feeling at a distance and knowing at a distance. 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. "The chakras are inter-dimensional energy vortexes that regulate the flow of life-force energy between and among dimensions...” (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 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. "As a fifth chakra individual...you have the ability to telepathically engage with other people, plants and animals and can engage in prophecy." (2)
Spiritual evidence based on the human experience tells us that the sixth senses, like the other five senses, create real, valid experiences. Thus 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. Author Colleen Mauro states, “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.” (1) 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 thought I was Jesus the Christ. I then learned I was not the only human being who came to believe he/she was Jesus the Christ. Ultimately I learned that I was being asked to learn about Jesus the Christ, as he would be an important role model for my life work. When one is stuck in delusional thinking it is helpful for the individual to take a more objective outsider role, like sitting up on the bleachers for a short time before getting back in the game. Being able to watch the thoughts that are flying around the ball-field instead of just thinking them can ultimately break any delusional thinking patterns. The individual must learn to not interpret his or her thoughts from an extreme point of view, like “I am Jesus the Christ.” It is more practical to take a balanced approach as you are beginning to grow your spiritual gifts. By learning to watch one’s thoughts, as will be explained later in the article, one can begin to see repetitive thought patterns that can lead to experiences of delusion.
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 and freedom are threatened. There may or may not be interference from external energy forms involved in initiating these feelings. You have to admit that we are definitely being monitored by the government, from wire tapping to internet watching, it’s no secret that control and fear are at play in the government’s actions. This is after-all, the dawn of a new era and there is a lot of fear over not being able to control the people as we evolve both spiritually and technologically. With paranoia, the goal is to know when your life is actually in danger through focused study of your thoughts and beliefs as well as prayer and communion with God. It is important to understand the origin of the thoughts that lead to paranoia. For example, are they self-created or from an external source such as the news? I recommend that people who are extra sensitive and susceptible to paranoid thoughts 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.
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 the world? Yes, in fact we do. We are all here playing roles in the world theater. If you are a believer in reincarnation you know that our roles change in each life as we take on different relations to one another. 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 sustainable world. Supernatural powers are an inherent part of our God-given spiritual nature.
Part 2: Tuning In
A radio receiver “tunes in” to different frequencies thus enabling and converting these frequencies to audible and intelligible messages. The soul and spirit combined with the human brain, work together to create an analog receiver. “Analog transmission uses frequency as a carrier of information.” (3) The thoughts we receive all have the quality of frequency. With persistent discipline and practice, we can come to choose which thought frequencies we tune into. “Called the rajah…the mind is said to be our true sixth sense. When the physical senses are stilled through meditation, the mind turns inward and upward. When the mind is focused upward, it functions as a conduit, transferring information from the soul to the brain.” (1) Information in the form of vibration or frequency, is said to funnel down from the universal mind of God into our brains, our personal analog radios.
So we have a personal receiver, but how do we learn to listen only to the positive message radio stations? How do we figure out where a message is coming from? The most important part of understanding the voices in your head is a very strict practice of meditation and quieting the mind. Not only must you become in charge of your mind, you must guard it as well. You must begin to take note of the thoughts that you are hearing. As you do this you will discover the details of the players behind the messages you receive. These details include imagery, personality and tone of voice, as well as associated scents and feelings that you experience when receiving the messages.
As we are discussing this complex topic of “hearing voices” you may wonder, what if we are just “talking to ourselves”? What if one of the radio stations you listen to all the time is a consequence of your own creation? I call this scenario the self- critic. This situation is does not involve telepathy and takes a more in depth study of the sub-conscious mind and elements including fear and shame. The more you get to know all the aspects of your own mind; you will become familiar with the qualities of your own thoughts.
Before I jump into the next part of the article I must mention a realistic challenge in beginner telepathy, that of discerning between real telepathic conversations and imagination or fantasy. In a true imagination situation, the individual is playing a dual role as both the sender and receiver. This is common when you see a child playing with dolls or figurines, or in daydreaming. However, there is a loophole where it is possible for an outside entity to be involved and thus we must be very careful in our assessments. The first possibility is that the child is the voice of him or herself as well as the imaginary character. The second possibility is that the "imaginary" friend is an actual being that is communicating with the individual from another dimension. The only way to tell the difference between telepathy and imagination is to develop a strong intuitive sense of the personality of the second character in the conversation. When I was younger, my cousin Derek passed away. One time we were at his family’s house for a reunion. His cousins, who were very young at the time, had told their parents that Derek was speaking to them, and that they could see and hear him. As time went on my aunt also said she could see him around the yard. This is an example of an episode that could be miss-interpreted as imagination or “hallucination”, due to disbelief of those not spiritually awakened and subsequently not tuned in to the receiver’s station.
