Many people have experienced shame in their life, or maybe even now live with shame. Shame is very “internal” and over time has a corrosive effect on our soul. I invite you to listen to an audio message to better understand the “dynamics” of shame to help realize healing and freedom from shame.
Our emotions function as indicators of our souls, pointing to our personal pain, inner conflicts, beliefs about God and much more. We need to listen to our souls as part of our healing and personal transformation. This is in stark contrast to psychiatric medication that typically numbs the soul, prevents lasting healing and undermines spiritual growth.
What do we really need for our personal healing and transformation? More psychological technique? More psychiatric medication? Or love and compassion through a genuine healing presence? Could love deficits with a myriad of symptoms and disorder be the deepest “cry of the soul?”
Psychiatric drugs prevent healing. This seemingly audacious and “politically incorrect” assertion is supported by considerable evidence. In fact, the same drugs that purport to bring healing often cause long term health issues. If your desire is true, lasting healing, don’t count on psychiatric drugs.
If depression “runs in families”, it is at least partly genetic, as many claim. But greed, atheism, criminality and more can “run in families” as well, which raises many ethical issues and problems. Some scientists even claim there is a gene for spirituality. With eugenics as the origin of the “runs in the family” concept, reductionism and the now known complexity of genetic effects, the genetics of mental illness is seriously flawed.
