Disclaimer: Although I may walk around with a stethoscope from time to time; I am no doctor. This is just my perspective
Here's my perspective on certain cases of what we classify as schizophrenia - I believe many individuals are actually in the midst of a spiritual experience.
Definition of Schizophrenia Currently:
a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.
Here's Mayo Clinic's definitions and symptoms:
Psychosis in the Psychiatric Community = Shadow Work in the Spiritual Community
I had been fortunate enough to run for my life through the streets of my city while being chased by the girl that I had loved, the devil, and a group of their friends. I was not on Drugs at this time. I had a couple alcoholic drinks in those two days.
I accepted death in that experience. I gave up the run. I gave up trying to avoid it. Trying to think my way out of it. I realized it was inevitable and couldn't really see the point anymore. I mean my sense of safety was completely gone as I was witness the reality of this consciousness which we live in - and the fact that no matter what I had been through - there was this Fear and Darkness.
The truth Is that you are of the most Important kind of projector - If you can interact with the fears on that level, as though it may be scary; it is a testament to your Spiritual ability. Your eyes see what your mind creates. It's just not aware that it's creating the very thing which it is fearing.
Once balanced and fears are undone. The true nature of the abilities can be practiced and harnessed. As well as the return to living of life in peace and quiet. If you choose.
The person seeing, hearing, or interacting with the things which they fear or that are not seen by others - are actually talented and gifted souls. Which have unfortunately bought into the lies of the "sane". For everything is kind of backwards here. You learn this when finding your Soul.
Do not fear your experiences which you may be referring to as "episodes". Doctors do not instill the fear of this being an occurrence in which the individual will be stuck facing the possible repeat of it. For maybe if they addressed what they saw, heard, and experienced as "Sane" or reality - then they would be able to understand the lesson or learning experience at hand.
To tell someone they are not "right", what they are seeing is "wrong" or "ill" - how does this treat it? The meds treat it? Okay the meds subdue it - then what. Yes, you are going to be right in this same experience repeating for them.
So works for the safety of the reality which you find yourself... Maybe you find yourself feeling a question of your purpose - This is a good sign that the reality you are standing in is not for you.
Do not pass the days by without satisfying that question...If you feel it. Why am I here? I know. Do you? You do. For sure. But it's possibly the most scary idea you have. Or the passion which you spend your free time thinking about - yet do not see a way of making a living.
For the diagnosed schizophrenic - which has found peace - no need to pursue anything else. Whether it be on meds, or with therapy, however you've found it - It's complete. You should be happy and not fearful, that's all we hope for anyway.
And I just offer that you try not to judge it or even label yourself within as anything other than perfect and whole - as you were meant to be. Mental illness is not helpful beliefs for one to hold.
Yet there are people suffering out there - we must understand they are on a soul journey which needs no judgement by our own self and we always feel compassion and forgiveness to others. No matter the atrocity we believe in the matter. Nothing happens here by mistake and it's what you choose to see in the outside that provides the theme of the inside.
Trust that this Reality is far more of an adventure than you've been let on to believe. You yourself are FAR Greater and more in power of your life than you quite possibly can fathom. This reality is yours - Reader.
And the reality of the individual with a schizophrenic diagnosis is their reality - no less dependent on you or I seeing it the way they see it.
Often It's probably painful for the ones watching (maybe it's your lesson). Yet, the person who has been told that it's wrong. Or that it's insane and not reality. That is where all grips on navigations become lost. For facing of this barrier in questioning your own sanity - is painful and confusing times.
It's a road best navigated alone at the point of full submersion in the shadow work - as the only who has the answers is actually you, the individual facing it.
You must let go of what you THINK you know. And be prepared to write a whole new script and base a whole new reality with the new understandings. Truth. Your truth. Which is what will be shown to you piece by piece.
The things which are not yours will become painfully obvious that you no longer can hold value in them.
Your Consciousness: Ocean, the River and the Faucet
For the schizophrenic - their faucet was left on
Or they had experiences which caused cracks in their faucet.
The individual then is left turning to the 'professionals' whom label it mental illness and quickly put the breaks on the individuals process with a label which categorizes the experiences as bad or unwanted; 'ill'.
We are raised into this world. The accepted beliefs, ideas, and teachings of the parents, or family that raised you are what first makes the composite for what you think of as you - your identity.
Then school comes - where most of us unfortunately try to evolve and become the identity which we think we will hold in the 14 to 20 range. But then we are faced with only classes which give very little cadence to our own personality or expression.
The Human Spirit Is amazingly resilient
The Spirit is how we have this amazing charisma and empathy. The compassion which takes over in chaos. The helping of a complete stranger in situations which ones own life is in harm. Yet the Spirit needs time to come of age in one's body as well.
The Spirit also knows when it's time to evolve and push forth into the next stages. SO just like the schizophrenic human individual who has begun self harming or losing grip on their life or happiness; reality. As does the collective in the very same way.
The Suicide of a Collective Consciousness
When looking at the ones around you with judgement and focus on the differences - it's like the Schizophrenic who things the things being seen is outside of him or herself. It's just like you when you walk down the hallway and think you are separate from the person you pass or the wall which lines your walk. It is not. It is yours and it is within you. turn the switch off and mute communicatons.
A bunch of different Identities and aspects of beliefs - all from one place; one spirit. Yet the difference is focused.
ONE source that is experiencing this. Therefor it's One Home.
DNA - You - Light - and Seeing through the Eye Glass
You carry so much within you. The blood is very important. The DNA.
So far, science has identified only about 1% of our genomes properties in the DNA that an individual carries. The other 99%, being termed 'junk DNA' which has not been scientifically discovered.
Try this Belief:
The other 99% of the DNA which is carried is actually unlimited in nature to what their genomes can be encoded with. In fact, the influence which unravels the genomes characteristic to be displayed in the physical is solely influenced by conscious thought.
Your thought, through visualization techniques and focused consciousness techniques is the writer to this makeup. That which you wish to be or display in the physical, is designed by your conscious effort on pulling it forth from the DNA.
God's DNA & Free Will - The Human Experience Unlocked
Without ever fully breaking through the healing of karmic ties or your own misunderstood truths - the reasons you suffer. Your own intolerance or inability to Love others which is how it feels to you but the actual thing you do not love in others is what you do not Love in yourself.
All had happened for a reason - and if you choose to see the good that came. Find something to be grateful for - then you will be closing a lot of lessons which are waiting for your love.
The Life Steps Recital:
Love, Peace, and Compassion - the Infinite supply which only the ideas, beliefs, and perspectives held stand in the way.
Faith for our future. Faith for our happiness. Faith for our enjoyment of Life. Faith in yourself, despite the painful experiences you may have had. Faith that you have a way to Live Fully. Faith that NO; you don't ever have to kill yourself. You don't ever have to use drugs. You don't have to accept the terms which someone else or society has provided for you.
We are all FREE. Free to engage life for what it is. The Freedom to Experience:
The banking system, the education system, the health and foods departments - Not necessarily entities which I would base my reality off. And in fact - the reality I live in, is proving unlimited in nature when it comes to me designing the life or person I am.
Experiencing of the different ups and downs, beliefs and false beliefs, then finally landing on the Truth of My Individual Existence. The truth of all the Individuals out there. You conscious? Then your Truth is what I speak of - not that I know you. But I do know the Power held within you & I am here for you.
1 foot in & 1 foot out.
A Lifeline offered. A bridge to YOUR own Freedom. It's here. Right where you are. Just takes some Resurrections of Truths. Deaths of beliefs. Rebirth of your Perspective.
Simple. Yet the Battle of a lifetime. You are safe, always. You are loved, always. Nothing can hurt you. No evil exists but in the mind that fears it. No separation exists except in the eyes that perceive it. Faucets on.
