How the exclusion of Spiritual concepts has a severely negative impact on how we approach Mental Hea
As a follow-up to my article Oneness, Mental Health, and Relationships, it is disappointing (but not surprising) how often I have shared this work with people who work in the mental health industry and they have discarded it immediately when I tell them that "no, it is not evidenced based". Even though it can literally save lives and cure mental health states.
As I mention on my Mental Health page, the modalities I use with my clients were able to clear me of all of my mental health issues (including severe anxiety, major depression, and bipolar disorder) in about a year!
The way they did this, is by showing me:
- how the energy of others affects me,
- that it is ok for me to be who I am (even if that means operating in a way contrary to society's beliefs), and
- guiding me to the next leaps of faith that I needed to take in order to create my destiny.
I bring this up as a follow up to my Oneness, Mental Health, and Relationships article, because I feel it is important for the general public to be aware that:
It was a lack of understanding of the concept of "oneness" that resulted in my (incorrect) diagnosis of Type 1 Bipolar disorder.
Yes, I was definitely un-grounded and I needed someone with a spiritual understanding to explain what was happening to me and what my self-care responsibilities were. But, to label me as Type 1 (bipolar with severe mania, as opposed to a milder form), simply because the thought occurred to me that "maybe I am a child of God" is simply ludicrous!
In a spiritual sense, we are all God's children, we all come from the same Source!
Here are some links so you can see how spiritual, unique psychology, ancient wisdom, energetic, and respectful/conscious approaches could radically change the way we view and treat adults and children who present with various negative mental health symptoms:
- Anxiety, Guilt, Shame, and Low Self-Esteem
- Learning Disabilities, ADHD, even milder forms of Autism
- Bullying, Anger, Frustration, and Self-Harm
You may wonder "why did I include guilt, shame, and low self esteem?", "why did I include learning disabilities and ADHD?", "why did I include bullying, anger, and frustration?"...
Because, to me, they are the same as the big "mental health" states, which we tend to label as permanent life sentences that require medication and will never be cured. They are the precursors that will certainly lead to states of mental illness if we do not self-correct.
To me, I see no difference between a state of mental illness or one of these concepts as they are all heading in the same direction (self-rejection) and they are all alleviated by the same solution (understanding, accepting, and adhering to our unique psychology and self-care needs)!

It is no accident that I experienced a challenging and unconscious life and upbringing, fell victim to multiple mental health states and the mis-treatment of these states, conducted 10 years of mental health research (with an MSc in Psychology/Neuroscience, specializing in how chronic stress can result in dysregulation of biological systems required for homeostasis, which results in states of mental and physical illness) only to end up here ->
Free of all mental health symptoms and medication, approaching mental health with a more complete and loving understanding of ourselves as spiritual beings, who are uniquely affected by the energy of others, and have unique self-care needs (which are our responsibility alone to follow, advocate for, and adhere to).
Maybe you can free yourself (or your child) too?
