Is your spiritual practice really healing? Is your healing leading to dissociation or transformation?
If you’ve been in the spiritual community for more than a few minutes you’ve probably heard these phrases:-
- Be in the now
- Stay positive
- Focus on the divine
- Focus on your spiritual nature
- Focus on their spiritual nature
- Breath in the positive, breath out the negative
- Don’t surrender to negativity / negative emotion
These all sound so lovely don’t they? But do they have a dark side?
The dark side
For a couple of decades, the spiritual community has been teaching and preaching platitudes like the above. And yes, platitudes they are. Because they do have a dark side. A dangerous side. Because what they all do to some extent is to deny our beautiful human experience.
It’s human to feel emotions. Emotions are useful. They let us know if we’re moving towards or away from our desires. They alert us to unacceptable behaviour, including in ourselves. They are the gateway to compassion. Without emotions, it’s harder to feel compassion. REAL compassion for another’s suffering.
I’ve spent the last 20 years researching methods for healing trauma and found what works. What I’ve also found is that many spiritual techniques are essentially a form of dissociation. They invite us to be removed from the now, from our bodies, from ourselves, from our feelings. This gives us relief from the emotional pain we might be feeling, but it doesn’t create lasting healing. It just numbs the pain.
Signs of dissociation:
- Overly analytical
- Insensitive to their own or other’s feelings
- Finding it hard to make decisions. Because when you’re dissociated you can’t FEEL what you want or don’t want, so you have to try to work it out from your head.
- They take a long time to answer questions about their emotions. (they’re trying to work it out rather than feeling into it)
- Flipping between feeling “great” (whilst dissociated) but then crashing back into the emotions when they re-associate.
- Not taking action. and therefore never getting what you desire.
- Lack of motivation, because motivation is linked to emotion, and if you can’t feel you don’t feel inspired to act
As someone who’s experienced and witnessed and assisted thousands of people to overcome trauma; dissociation has its uses. But it’s a coping mechanism. It can never lead to permanent and deep healing.
Complete healing and transformation
Recognizing the need for permanent healing, I created Conscious Emotional Transformation – CET, a revolutionary and profound emotional release and healing technology. CET pretty much does what it says in its name – it enables anyone to permanently and completely release themselves from trauma from the past. It permanently deletes limiting beliefs like I’m unworthy, I’m not good enough, I’m unlovable, I can’t learn – or any other limiting belief.
