Shamans see mental and emotional health issues as reflecting spiritual challenges. In the case of schizophrenia, it’s often sensitive/perceptive people who were able to perceive and hear the spiritual realm to begin with, but have been traumatized, made vulnerable by the spiritual damage and subsequently spiritually attacked. Much of what used to be called Multiple Personalities and is now referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder is caused by essentially the same thing. A friend of mine calls it being “hijacked” by spirits or entities. Some people call it being possessed. A strong lightworker or shaman can do an “extraction”: remove the energies that aren’t supposed to be there, and repair the aura so that the person will have their normal, strong defenses.

Regarding toxic poisoning from anti-psychosis drugs, there are ways to eliminate some chemicals from the body through very careful nutritional programs. It’s called detoxing. One program is They focus on a macrobiotic diet, which lets the body release unhealthy chemicals and get clean. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when it is not overloaded. A handy, slightly less aggressive approach can be found in the book “The New Detox Diet” by Elson Haas. I recommend working with a professional nutritionist, massage therapist and energy worker (shaman, Reiki or Polarity practitioner, etc.). As our bodies release toxins, we, especially those of us who are really sensitive, often re-experience the bad stuff that got the toxins there in the first place. It’s good to get it out, but it can be startling and upsetting to re-experience something that we thought we were healing. That’s why it’s a really good idea to work with someone who knows what they’re doing with this, so that they can gently warn, guide and support you through the process.

    I believe that in many instances schizophrenia is a mental reaction to mental abuse. Let’s say that “A” represents people’s social selves and “B” represents repressed and subconscious material, and “C” represents conscious negative psychological material. Then take a subject individual who is sensitive and perceptive and bombard them bit by bit with “B” and “C” energy, either in an unconscious or automatic fashion or out of envy, jealousy, resentment, malice or any other reason. The subject individual will then experience their subconscious being continually stimulated in a forceful way through the projection of unconscious material onto them by others, or out of spite, malice and the like. Since subconscious material is border dream state material, the subject individual then begins to experience waking life as a dream state of sorts, the two states, conscious and unconscious then begin to be confused. At least, that is how I see it.

    Sometimes “mental illness” isnt spiritual but chemical. Like Cancer. There is no blame there or shame. It happens..but so does healing and cure. Have faith in a higher power!!!!

      Our bodies (and brains) are in an intricate dance with our emotions, spiritual energies, and hormones. Our bodies create chemicals and hormones in response to emotions and spiritual energies. Definitely no blame or shame. But lots of alternatives are available that many people aren’t offered. Of course, exposure to toxins is a whole ‘nother ball game.

      Tess, I like your faith in a Higher Power! Rock on Divine Love and Guide us as we heal!

    Reiki is a form of energy healing. Many cultures have a version of it. Some Christians call it “the laying-on of hands”, although energy healing can be done without touching the “healee”, from a distance even. That is called distance healing. Reiki is a form of prayer with instant invisible action. While technically it is invisible, you can actually see the person receiving the healing energy react — goosebumps, sighing, relaxing, improved color (circulation), easing and release of pain (physical, emotional, and spiritual). Although some people feel that Reiki should be performed using special symbols, it is not necessary. Young children are excellent Reiki healers, fast and amazing, and they get going without memorizing hundreds of symbols. It is about connecting with Divine Source, Divine Love, and channeling that healing energy to the person who has agreed to be healed. Reiki is excellent for those in comas. It helps their bodies, which usually have experienced significant trauma, but also their spiritual selves which are on a journey away from the body, deciding what steps to take next and whether to return to their body or not.

    Please let me know if you would like more information. I’m happy to answer any specific questions, too.
