For several years now we worked with different patients from all runs of life that had symptoms, that Psychiatry classically describes as “dissociative” or “psychotic”! The problem with these patients is, they are in no way dissociative or psychotic. Nevertheless they feel molested and disturbed by unseen presences, that reveal themselves mostly obviously as personalities with different needs, mostly of a sexual nature. The most unbelievable constellations we have worked on and have helped several times.
This formidable article now shows the problems awareness in spiritualist culture of different origin. From early on the problem is known and described in spiritualist history, but is widely neglected by todays leading european spiritualists unions.
Although we appreciate the approach of Dr. T.J.Palmer by linking this article here, we want to underline that his opinions are not necessarily ours!
Have a thorough and interesting read!)
(a contribution by Dr. T. J. Palmer)
The possibility of Spirit influence is
currently neglected by present day orthodox therapies that do not
recognize the independent nature of human mind from its material
counterpart. However, this does not preclude the existence of this
phenomenon which is unfortunately widely spread in the population and
can be considered as the origin of several mental disorders and leading
to many hideous crimes.
some Spirits over certain people. An influence that is never exercised
by good Spirits but rather only by those of inferior nature‘ (1). If
the human personality has its origin in a center of psychological
forces known as ‘Spirit’ – which is by itself quite independent from
matter – the phenomena of spirit obsession or attachment may be one of
the leading causes of many tragedies in today’s life, albeit rarely
recognized as such. This happens because only part of the human nature
dies in fact. The most important one containing knowledge, memory, – the
self in essence – continues to exist sometimes ignoring such new life
Only Spirits can communicate with Spirits and the ‘communication’ itself
is not limited to the well-known mediumship phenomena that Spiritualist
literature describes so well. There are other forms, ranging from
subtle mood changes or appearance of multiple personas in a single body to the most extreme misbehavior, indicating an infestation of a person’s mind. The latter case, known as possession, was also well described by Kardec himself (2) as the ultimate level of Spirit obsession (3).
