The Shamanic View of Mental Illness, and its Spiritual Causes | Jennifer’s Story: Healing Bipolar Mania/Depression Naturally | Stillness in the Storm

This is a fascinating article discussing an alternative view of mental illness, which in my understanding, seems to be more reflective of what’s really happening with so many at this time.We live in a world that suppresses the spiritual part of ourselves that is cognizant of universal realities, in favor of a false, illusory reflection of who we truly are—the separate self. This false self is what feels the pain of loneliness, isolation, confusion, disempowerment, and trauma, all founded on a consciousness of separation. But once the universal self consciousness has been liberated from the limited ego imprisonment, spiritual awakening proceeds. And sometimes the universe nudges us in this direction by introducing change into our lives.
