How would you feel if the whole world collapsed in front of you and the people you thought were concerned seemed to be avoiding you or drifting away due to the unusual behavior you may have shown?
The feeling of depression becomes more intense and you will simply keep turning down until you resort to drugs or suicide to end the unresolved feeling.
Sometimes we look at people who suffer from mental illnesses with contempt. We tend to be afraid as if the disease could contaminate us. We isolate, reject or even mock a person with mental illness. Has it occurred to you how you would like to be treated when it happened to you? Mental health problems can be caused by many factors such as biochemical imbalances in the brain, lack of nutrients as well as toxins. It can also be genetics, inability to cope, poor social skills, or a response to a negative experience. The perceived fear and depression are signs of deeper psychological problems.
The psychiatrist Stanislav Grof used the term “spiritual emergency” to describe the state of mental illness, while the psychiatrist Peter Breggin coined the term “psycho-spiritual overpowering”. Both sentences solve the puzzle of the diagnosis by describing a process. It means an experience, not a stigmatized label that can last a lifetime.
If psychosis is not a lifelong condition, but a temporary reaction similar to a runny nose when we have a cold, then there is something we can do to empower those who are suffering from mental health problems.
If we can learn to read the warning signs of an upcoming cold, we can learn to interpret the deeper cause and meaning of the psychological overstrain. By taking the time to explore our feelings rather than responding to them, we can definitely make progress.
There is nothing to be afraid of emotions. Feelings should not be denied. There is a reason why such feelings or emotions exist. By decrypting them early, we have the opportunity to negate their snowball effect.
Body and mind will always try to find or rebalance no matter how emotional a person is. But often we have to nudge to deal with unpleasant feelings and get to their roots. We don’t understand deep emotions well in this society. It is reserved for poets and artists.
Parents of mentally ill patients often say that “she was too sensitive” or “he becomes so emotional”, which means that one of these characteristics was a bad thing. However, the human mind lives on rhythm, imagination and metaphors. The subconscious feeds on dreams in order to create problems, to solve them and to deal with what is in the waking world.
In order to decipher the meaning of your emotions, an extraordinary but relatively simple process is called The tracking was carried out by the psychologist Dr. Vern Woolf develops using the imagination and senses (image, sound, color, texture and smell) to understand the positive intent of uncomfortable feelings. It can be used to decipher the “voices” heard in episodes of schizophrenia.
If we feel bad or have had a bad day, creative approaches such as music, art, visualization or tracking can help direct emotions and senses into a realm that we can easily understand. They not only relieve a potentially explosive and debilitating personal experience, but can also be used to discover our own uniqueness. They enable us to know each other in a way that we would never have thought possible and ultimately to strengthen ourselves in an often alienating and stressful world.
