How we heal the “spiritual emergency” felt globally today
![Adobe_Post_20191004_1603070.6934489975591509.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/naturalmedicine/nEUNVyBe-Adobe_Post_20191004_1603070.6934489975591509.png)

Modern living has resulted in an upsurge of people struggling with their minds due to the pace, pressure and pointlessness of modern living. Modern health solutions are generally artificial medications pushed by dealers at big pharma out to make a “killing” off our struggle. And yet these PTSD symptoms to life on earth today are not only a mental crisis but ultimately a spiritual emergency, where the very meaning, purpose and “raison d’etre” remains unanswered or just beyond our grasp. What is really going on here?

Today we are all buckling under the pressure of economic debt, increasing socio-political instability and climate threat. As a result people are beginning to snap. Minds are succumbing to opioid or other addiction to cope. Or they are falling into depression. I know of a lady just nearby who simply struggles with her mind under severe depression as she tries to raise her young teenage daughter as a single parent. 

Family fragmentation is the new norm and we grow into a damaged existence without answers to the most fundamental question of our lives. Why are we left to struggle so in this life on earth? As a result, when extra pressure comes in the form of more hardship, recession or victimization by whomever, we buckle even more and suicide rates climb to unhealthy new heights. Japan has a whole sub-culture of suicides, often older solo people who have no reason to continually tolerate the abuse that the modern world imposes upon them.

The system has been hijacked by unscrupulous corporate money chasers who use the masses as consumers while rigging the economy in their favor. It’s a fact. I’ve studied it. Nevertheless, this is not just a mundane social dilemma. It is a crisis of consciousness. Modern progressive alternative medical thinkers prefer to label this a “spiritual emergency”. It is a crisis of consciousness. We are lacking in soul food, soul nurturing or basic spiritual depth to our lives. Modern theological institutions have left us unimpressed and we have abandoned them with all their flaws and yet we have no story, myth, or gospel to guide us as to how to see this all in perspective.

And so we are crushed under the hard knocks of material life. However, consciousness solutions do exist. One has to seek them out. They tell us of our eternal nature beyond the temporary body and mind, while reminding us that this material world is not our original home and never will be, as long as it brings us the pangs of birth, old age, disease and death. We cannot avoid struggle, and it is our lot now in the later stage of this era on the planet in its multi-thousand year history. 
With correct information from those so-called shamanic cultures of our ancients, we may still be able to find insights into who we are, what life is about, and how to transcend the crisis we find ourselves in. This spiritual emergency can be healed. Not by opioids because it is not only a chemical imbalance of the machine of the brain. It is deeper than that, it is a natural symptom of enslavement in the prison of life on earth under the pressure of a Neo-Feudal leadership who care more about profit than people and find it in their favor to keep us suppressed, depressed and ignorant of our spiritual roots.

# Wisdoms and mindful musings 

Well the solutions are available and this week’s post is thanks to reading the [personal account](https://steempeak.com/naturalmedicine/@trucklife-family/world-mental-health-day-the-reality-of-pyschiatric-services-and-how-we-need-to-embrace-our-mental-health-and-let-go-of-all-the) from @trucklife-family on working in a hospital for patients experiencing mental crises, incorrectly diagnosed and treated by a modern materialistic medical industry. 

> “But because of that job I got to see the reality if how people were treated, how pharmaceutical companies pushed their new medication on doctors, with such wonderful incentives.”

I recommend this read because personal accounts speak volumes when experiences bear witness to the tragedy of a corrupt system engineering our spiritual crises today. To labs its a business for profit more than a desire to heal us.

> “So many people are put on medication trials by their doctors, yet another medication added on top of the huge amount, that they were already taking. In the end they are human guinea pigs, where they would are under strict observation, so that any effects and side effects are recorded. I witnessed people having to be admitted to psychiatric hospital, because of the reaction their bodies had to this new medication.”

In other words we are being driven to suicide under the pressure of life without answers or meaning by the very people meant to rescue us in our times of emergency. Solutions are there and they involve a new form of holistic healing of the whole person both body, mind and soul. Stan Grof already introduced in the sixties and seventies, techniques of Holotropic breathwork to assist those in spiritual crisis. Others have introduced other breath and sound therapy to literally shift consciousness. Plant medicines like Psylocybin, once considered taboo, are now being found to facilitate a healing shift in the consciousness of some distressed people. 

I use mantra meditation and I read philosophical insights from previous spiritual seekers on the path, or current ones here on steemit at Natural Medicine under the tags listed below to get inspiration and answers. They talk volumes on who we are, what life is really all about and how to harness the capacity of the body and mind to lift the mood, the consciousness and even alter the brain chemistry at will via meditation and its effects on rewiring a brain gifted with neuroplasticity. So there is always room to heal, with time and the right input.

A spiritual emergency - I think about that alot. Whilst the Catholic church has totally screwed things for many people and organised religion has a lot tp answer for, I feel the West especially NEEDS some kind of spiritual focus to put it back together. We have been hijacked by greed and the ever grinding wheels of progress. No wonder there is a resurgence of people wanting to learn old world skills because it gains us self reliance and independence and returns us to a less complicated time. The solutions ARE around, there are spiritual answers, but they are being  swamped by all the other messages. 

I am glad #mindfullife and other spiritual tags exist on Steemit for little reminders of the tools we have to hand to help.
