Spiritual Psychosis


I can hear you in your mind, and I can see you from behind.

Psychosis is a mental illness that can make a person lose awareness of reality. It can result in hallucinations, delusions, and distorted thinking in a person. A person who experiences spiritual psychosis believes they are being communicated with by God or another higher authority, or thinks they are being possessed by a demon or other bad force. A person suffering from spiritual psychosis could also think that they are cursed or that Satan or other demonic entities are pursuing them. Numerous conditions, such as mental illness, substance abuse, and traumatic events, can result in spiritual psychosis.

The spiritual world is what?

The definition of the spiritual world is hotly contested, although most people can agree that it is a place outside of our physical one. Our souls go there after we pass away, and we can communicate with our higher selves, our guides, and our departed loved ones there as well. Some individuals think that the spiritual realm is all around us and that we can connect to it through spiritual practises like meditation and prayer. Others think that reaching the spiritual realm is only possible after passing away.

Important causes of spiritual insanity.

  1. Not having a strong faith or connection to a higher power.
  2. Isolated from the real world and/or reality.
  3. Delusions and/or hallucinations.
  4. Suspicion.
  5. Psychotic symptoms brought on by a lack of sleep or poor diet.
  6. Psychosis caused by drugs.
  7. Schizophrenia
  8. Bipolar illness
  9. Profound depression.
  10. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Spiritual crisis or psychosis?

Psychosis is frequently viewed as a mental disorder that is characterised by a departure from reality when we think of it. Though psychosis can also result from a spiritual emergency, which is a crisis brought on by a person’s spiritual practises or beliefs. A abrupt shift in spiritual convictions, a decline in faith, or a painful experience are just a few examples of the factors that might trigger a spiritual emergency. While those going through a spiritual emergency might feel like they’re losing their minds, it’s important to keep in mind that this is not the same as having a mental illness.

Spiritual psychosis and shifting are related.

Shifting and spiritual psychosis go hand in hand. When a shift occurs, a person might also go through a spiritual psychosis. This is so that the person’s perspective of reality doesn’t change as a result of the shift. The shift may also make the individual feel removed from their bodily self and from the outside world. This may cause a sense of estrangement from one’s spiritual self and from the outside world.

The soul’s darkest night.

The term “dark night of the soul” refers to a period of profound spiritual conflict. We feel lost and alone during this time, when everything seems gloomy and hopeless. We are going through a period of immense upheaval and uncertainty when we start to doubt our faith and our very survival. The dark night of the soul can be a very trying and painful time, but it can also be a time of tremendous growth and change. We are compelled to confront our innermost fears and traumas in the dark. The aspects of ourselves that we have been avoiding must now be faced. We are compelled to look for the light that will guide us out of the shadows. When we are called into the dark night of the soul, we must look within to find the courage and strength to face our fears. We are being asked to trust our inner guidance and intuition at this time. We are being urged to recall our relationship with the Divine at this time.

The spiritual emergency of the Peak Experience.

A spiritual emergency is a period of rapid spiritual development and change. It could be a period of immense happiness and understanding or one of enormous difficulty and upheaval. In any case, we are being called to broaden our consciousness and widen our hearts in fresh and potent ways. On the spiritual emergency journey, the peak experience is frequently the first stop. It is a period when we experience startling clarity or a strong sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. We can have a meaningful encounter with love or beauty, or we might have a paradigm-shifting realisation that radically changes the way we perceive ourselves and our purpose in life.

This abrupt growth of consciousness can be both thrilling and confusing. We might experience feelings of losing our sense of reality or going mad. But this is just the ego’s attempt to shield us from the unknowable. The peak experience is only the start of a sacred journey if we can let go and have faith that we are being led by something more wiser than our limited self.

How may spiritual insanity be cured?

You are not alone if you are battling spiritual psychosis. Despite being relatively uncommon, this condition can be very crippling. The good news is that recovery is possible. Here are some suggestions for overcoming spiritual psychosis:

  1. Look for expert assistance. This is crucial in every way. You can better understand your situation and create a treatment plan with the aid of a mental health specialist.
  2. Establish relationships. There are probably others who have experienced or are experiencing something comparable. By getting in touch with them, you might receive assistance and feel less isolated.
  1. Encourage a healthy way of life. Maintaining your mental health requires a healthy diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep.
  2. Take care of yourself. This encompasses activities like meditation, writing in a notebook, and spending time outside.
  3. Look for spiritual direction. This could be from a respected figure in your faith, a friend, or a qualified individual.

You will be on the road to recovery from spiritual psychosis if you adhere to these suggestions.

  1. This is so important to talk about, and unfortunately this happens all too often when people get into spirituality without addressing their mental health. Thanks for this important post!

      Yes unfortunately it’s more common. Behaviours and thought patterns expressed during spiritual emergencies and psychosis exemplify a loss of rational thought. Such symptoms include disorganised behaviours, irrational or confused speech patterns, and significant alterations in the way they view themselves and their place in the world.

    The spiritual world is not outside of us. Nothing is.

      Yes Tricia. Spirituality leans more toward self-referral or the internalization of your awareness of your soul. Spirituality is an inward journey that involves a shift in awareness rather than some form of external activity. As such, spirituality is much more about inner understanding than outer worship.

    “or thinks they are being possessed by a demon or other bad force.” Perhaps one can be possessed by a good force as well. Possession is still a possession.

      For every smile that we display to the world, there is an inequity in our psyche that is being camouflaged and swept under the carpet. And the only way we can remove the lump in our throats is by looking into our minds, and sharing what’s hurting them.
