Mental Health and The Mind of God #mentalillness #treatment #healingprayers #DivineMind #SpiritualLiving

In the Mind of God all is well, all is sane, all is at peace. You do not have to look too far around you, however, to be consumed by a crazy world doing crazy things. So, how do you keep your sanity without getting caught up in the insanity of the world?

Finding a safe place is a very important asset in a world that is full of insecure behavior. Do you know where your safe place is? One hint: this place is probably not a physical place, though the ability to find a physical area where you feel completely safe to sleep or to meditate is imperative in resting from all the struggles that seek to impede your peace.

Your safe place is actually in your Mind.

(Remember that there is a vast difference between your physical brain and the Mind, which is much greater and larger than your own body can hold.)

When you learn to find this place in Mind where you are connected to the Whole, to Divine Mind, you have found your safe place. You will know you have found it, when your fears appear to be far away, at a distance, similar to flying in a plane and looking down at where you live from miles above.

Suddenly, the world and where you live in it appears very tiny, compared to the larger panorama of life. Of course, what I elude to is a place in Mind that reaches above the functions of the brain to become an objective observer, nonjudgmental and perfectly at peace, even when what appears to be surrounding you looks perilous in the flesh.

This place can only be found in meditation and must be practiced often enough for you to be able to retreat to it in times of duress. If I did not meditate every day, I could never trigger my mind to get out of the mire and into a peaceful place, during times of stress and contention around me.

So, my advice to you is to keep on the path of a steady and purposeful down time, a space for contemplation and continue to search for that omniscient space. When you find it, practice getting there again and again, until it is automatic.

Paralyzing Fear: Healing Your Thoughts #spiritualpsychology #Anxiety #fear #ScienceofMind #SpiritualLiving

Anything held in Mind, produces in kind. So, when you seek to heal the body, your finances, your outlook on life, and your precious relationships, seek first to heal your thoughts. Healing your thoughts is not as daunting as it may sound. But, we must start somewhere, because the rate of mental illness is rising in America to a severe high.

One out of every Four Americans suffers from some sort of mental disease. That’s 19% or 60.2 Million people just in America that suffer from mental illness. (NAOMI, National Alliance of Mental Illness) How many people of that percentage are considered treatable? Almost all of them.

However, many, especially a large percentage in the range of 14-24 year olds and certain ethnic groups such as African-Americans and Spanish Americans go untreated for years after diagnosis. When you consider the ramifications of no treatment for mental health, you are looking at $193 billion in lost earning per year as a result of this figure.

But, you may say, these are diseases and cannot be treated by spirituality or positive thought. You may be right about some of that, but we can all stand to change our minds about fear in general. Let us continue to take our medication, but also fortify our minds with healthier thinking.

Our fear triggers in the amygdala of the brain are not equipped to handle the amount of tragedy and loss that the world experiences now, compared to 1970, when parents let their children run free in the woods for hours without constant attention. Now, you barely let your children out of the front door, because of so much fear. We are paralyzed as a society because of terrorism and random killings everywhere.

If we do not take the time to equalize this problem in our precious minds—with meditation and spiritual mind treatment—we will indeed, continue to lose many viable, loving people to debilitating anxiety, as suicide is now the 10th cause of death in the US.

I can say that I was one of those people suffering from a debilitating mental illness, and had been undiagnosed since I was a teenager. I have chronic depression, coupled with Sensory Defensiveness, which is a form of adult autism creating severe sensitivity to everything from light to noise to smell. I believe that if I were to get off of my antidepressant (which slows down my neural triggers to a normal pace) I would probably fall back into depression immediately, because to a diseased brain, the world simply feels too scary to move.

But medication is not enough for me to stay positive and viable in this fearful world. I have to stabilize my mind with positive thoughts and a belief in something greater than I to keep from spending the day in bed and afraid of life. Trust me on this. I know what mental illness feels like. I have many clients who know what mental disease feels like. But, together, we can lift up each other and hold each other accountable for doing what we need to do for ourselves to keep life balanced and the fear at a minimum.

Here’s what I do:

  • Diligently take my medication—it’s a small price to pay for sanity.
  • Meditate every morning on a specific healthy thought;
  • Read something spiritually or psychologically positive every day; and
  • Encourage others to do the same.

Together, we can rise to place in Mind that we all share. In this place, there is peace and joy and compassion. But, if you cannot find this place for yourself, each day, how can you embrace love and expect good from life? It is virtually impossible to stay positive all of the time with so much negativity around us. So, we must, must, must spend time counterbalancing this negativity with our spiritual truth.

Psychology: The Science of Mind #self-discovery #InfiniteMind #spiritualadvice #SOM

In The Science of Mind we read: “…it is not the brain (of man) that does the thinking, for if the brain could think, it would keep on thinking when removed from the body. Yet, without a brain, a man could not think, which proves that something behind the brain uses it as an instrument. Man does think, so behind the brain there must be a Thinker. But where is the Thinker?”

Who doesn’t read the above and wonder about the difference between the physical brain and the Mind? I know, I certainly do. My first perceptions of this reality came when I realized I was talking to myself, or reasoning with myself. I thought, who is speaking to whom?

At this point, I realized that there was, quite possibly, a family of thinkers in my own brain. Wondering if I was sane or crazy, I asked a therapist friend of mine about this psychological conundrum. It turns that there is a science in psychology devoted primarily to this subject called IFS (Internal Family Systems), led by Dr. Richard Schwartz, Ph. D.

The theory behind IFS is that characters develop in our minds under certain circumstances—usually traumatic ones. These characters hold certain beliefs about our lives and either protect us, guard us from our own bad memories, or become heroes for us. (This entire scenario is not to be confused with multiple personalities, the mental illness. What I speak about is actually quite normal. With multiple personalities, usually one character is predominant and the mentally disabled person usually loses time when in that particular personality.)

The only reason I bring up IFS is because for characters to exist in the mind, there must be a Source that is not the physical brain to function in a way that actually communicates with itself. The real challenge and wonder of the Science of Mind is that by “recognizing the mind and brain are separate, and that the mind governs the brain,” we actually can remodel our thinking. This is the premise on which the science of psychology is based.

So, to sum up, the only way we can study our own minds and change our beliefs in ourselves is to, first, consider that we have One Mind that is greater than the human brain and its autonomic functions. This One Mind is Cause. From this, we can begin to observe ourselves and make changes, or edits to the function of the physical brain. Alas, mental health may emerge. Let’s hope so!
