What is Spiritual Psychology?
- Psyche: The breath of life/soul.
- Logos: The study or knowledge.
- Original meaning of Psychology: The study of the soul.
- Today’s meaning of Psychology: The study of behavior and mental processes.
Spiritual Psychology/ Psychotherapy: Is taking it back to the roots of what it was when it was 1st inspired on the planet- the Soul is the inspiration. It is about the care of the soul or taking care of the energy in the system.
I am often asked what is the difference between main stream psychotherapy and spiritual psychotherapy and here is my answer:
Main stream psychotherapy is disease-based. It is about looking at symptoms, assessing them and using different therapy modalities that can help resolve the unresolved.
However, spiritual psychotherapy is taking you back to the essence of who you truly are; a Divine Being of Love & Light having a human experience.
Spiritual psychology is the art and practice of conscious awakening; awakening into the awareness of who we truly are.
The Three Essential Questions:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
What is my Purpose?
How can I make a more meaningful contribution? How can I experience that my life has value and purpose and my being here makes a difference?
Young people are attracted to this concept today. They believe that there must be more to life than what we are seeing on this planet. They are yearning for a sense of freedom- inner freedom from the shackles of the material world. And, they want to understand how they can be of service, using their unique abilities to make a difference in the world.
What is Spiritual Psychotherapy?
Spiritual psychotherapy is based on evoking the soul to surmount the unique challenges and stresses in your life. This is a gentle and profound journey into the depths of mind and spirit. The techniques include psychotherapy (which, in essence, is based on the power of relationships and constructive communication), art-based therapy (which harnesses the power of imagination and creativity), and guided or unguided meditation (which facilitates the silencing of the mind to allow for a deep exploration of our psyche). Most importantly, it is a journey of spiritual exploration to create positive and long-lasting changes in one's life. The prerequisites for engaging in this form of therapy is a sincere commitment to invite more soul — more energy — into our life.
Spiritual psychotherapy focuses on empowering each client to bring forth the wisdom and clarity of his or her soul. Anchoring and reinforcing the newly gained insights, he or she may experience the following outcomes:
- Respond to stress with a positive life affirming approach.
- Awaken the peace and clarity of his/her soul in daily life
- Discover powerful affirmations that counter the negative and self-limiting tendencies rooted in the subconscious mind
- Clear deep core issues and old traumas
- Develop an intuitive trust in his/her own inner voice
- Release anxiety, fear, and guilt
- Journey within one's soul to co-create a rich, abundant and successful life
If we want to create real changes, it is essential to connect with our true self. Who are we underneath all the difficulties that we face? What are we learning? What qualities are we developing or need to develop? By connecting deeply with our core essence, we can have access to a part that can transcend the difficulties that we may identify with.
You can experience great healing and relief from being able to share your story in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space. That may be all you want. Perhaps you simply want to learn strategies to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, relationship or family issues. Or, you may want to create more long-lasting changes to enable yourself to deal with the underlying symptoms of your challenges, especially if you have recurring difficulties and patterns of behavior that are limiting your soul’s growth and evolution.
A spiritual approach allows for a very positive way of perceiving and interpreting challenges, and connecting with parts of yourself that you have forgotten- those parts that have slipped into the unconscious.
At The Inner Space, we have built an environment where all these issues can be tackled and discussed with the guidance of mental health professionals and counselors, using the latest and best methods in psychotherapy and counseling.
If any one of the above situations describes what you may be facing or dealing with, then don't hesitate to get in touch with us to take an appointment and begin your healing journey.
