Bipolar disorder is a very complex disease to a lot of people, including medical doctors, and rightly so. As with each other disease in allopathic medicine, there will be no cure for bipolar disorder. You can’t solely deal with this disorder from the physical, and especially with dangerous, man-made pharmaceutical drugs. Plus, Western medical doctors acknowledge that they don’t know the cause of the disorder.
All disease and disorder first happen on the energy level before manifesting physically. Therefore, healing of all diseases must happen first on the energy level, the root or causative level. This is the reason no cure or healing of bipolar disorder will ever happen in Western medicine because Western medicine does not deal with vibration or energy, and the human body has an energy or vibratory body. Western medicine does not even take care of the cellular amount of recovery, which follows the energy level of recovery.
So as to address a problem (disease, sickness) we must first understand what it is. You can just begin the healing process once you first “understand” what a thing is. Every disease has an origin in which etiology teaches us can be researched.
Though an herbalist, my way of healing and health is wholistic and encompasses all realms of human existential makeup, including the bio-magnetic sheath (human air) or subtle bodies kingdom, i.e. ethereal body, Stuart Wildlife Control, mental body, astral body, etc..
All living beings have an imperceptible but detectable energy field that surrounds them. This is true from man (human being) down to the animals and insects. This invisible energy field is called the “bio-magnetic sheath” (aura). It can be detected and photographed with a specific kind of photography called “Kirlian photography”
Okay, let’s delve into the understanding of bipolar disorder so that we may properly understand it in order to properly address it and help those that are afflicted with it.
Bipolar disorder is medically defined as:
“A major mental disorder characterized by episodes of mania, depression, or mixed mood. One or the other stage may be predominant at any particular time, one phase may appear alternately with another, or elements of both phases may be present simultaneously. Characteristics of the manic phase are excessive emotional displays, such as excitement, elation, euphoria, or in some instances irritability accompanied by hyperactivity, boisterousness, impaired ability to concentrate, decreased need for sleep, and apparently unbounded energy. In extreme mania, a feeling of omnipotence and delusions or grandeur might happen. From the depressive condition, marked apathy and under-activity are accompanied by feelings of profound sadness, loneliness, and lowered self-esteem. Causes of the disorder are multiple and complex, often involving biologic, psychological, interpersonal, and social and cultural factors. 196
Bipolar disorder is a depressive disorder. It is one of two major classifications of depressive disorders: (1) unipolar depression and (2) bipolar depression.
Bipolar disorder usually starts out as depression and slowly graduates to mania; and the mania and depression can involve alternating episodes, an up and down effect. Therefore, bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression.
In my traditional fashion, let us break matters down into pabulum so we can get a thorough and pellucid understanding of bipolar disorder.
The word or prefix “bi” means: “Two; two: menopausal 2. Occurring twice during: biweekly [Latin: bis, bi – meaning “twice.”] Hence, “bi” means two.
The term “polar” means: 1. Of, measured from. Or referred to a pole 2. Of or near the North or South Pole. 3.
The word “polar” derives from the term “pole” which means: “Either or two oppositely charged terminals, as in an electric cell or battery either of two opposing forces. [Greek: polos, meaning “axis”]
The word “disorder” means: “A lack of order; confusion; an ailment.”
From the above break down of the term “bipolar disorder”, we come up with “a lack of order or an ailment of two poles of opposing forces or extremes (or mental states).”
Basically, bipolar disorder deals with a fluctuation of extremes on the psychological level – mania and depression. Depression copes with a saddened state whereas mania deals with an excited or enthused state.
Depression. noun. 1. The act of depressing or condition of being gloomy. 2. A sunken area; hollow 3. The condition of feeling sad or despondent. 4. Pschol. American Heritage Dictionary supra, pg. 235
Depression. [Latin: “deprimere” meaning “to press]. 3. 4. An abnormal psychological condition characterized by exaggerated feelings of sadness, melancholy, dejection, worthlessness, emptiness, and hoplessness that are inappropriate and out of proportion to reality. The status is neurotic if the precipitating cause is an intra-psychic conflict or a traumatic situation or event that is identifiable, even though the person is unable to explain the overreaction to it. The condition is psychotic when there is severe there’s severe physical and mental functional impairment because of some unidentifiable intra-pyschic battle; it is often accommodated by hallucinations, delusions, and confusion regarding time, place, and identity. Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 4th edition, supra pg. 354
Mania. noun. An intensively extreme enthusiasm or desire; craze. 2. 3. Violent abnormal behavior.
In the word “mania” we get the term “maniac” which means: One having an excessive enthusiasm for something. [Greek: maniakos, meaning “mad”, mania, meaning “insanity] .
We also get the term” manic” which means: “Of, influenced by, or marked with mania.”
Are you starting to really understand the depth of the rock group, The Bangles, hit song “Manic Monday” today from all the definitions supra? I am!
America may profess to be a Christian nation, but if you have eyes to see, you may and can see that paganism’s mark has been left on Christianity and America, which purports to be a Christian country. Not a Christ-like state, but a Christian nation. There is a difference!
Monday has ever been associated with psychological imbalance, lunacy, mania, and sorrow (“the blues”) to be exact. In fact, the Latin word for “moon” is “luna” from whence we get the words “lunacy” and “lunatic.” Originally, lunacy was imputed to the moon.
In chromatherapy, the color blue deals with soothing and calming and this color blue (especially light blue) helps us to unwind and to calm down. This is extremely true! So in the event you’ve got an irate and/or anxious or hyperactive child(ren), you might want to consider painting their bedroom light blue in order to positively impact them with this color’s frequency or vibration.
The color blue is the antidote for the colour red, which copes with passion, fever, and fieriness. If you are upset or angry, your aura becomes a tainted and unhealthy reddish color because on an energetic level you’re on fire (burning up), and you begin to exude the frequency of the color, and in accordance pursuant to the law of attraction, so long as your frequency is the frequency of this color (tainted or dark red), you may attract different things into your orb or aura that matches this identical frequency. You will attract people, circumstances, situations, and events that will keep you mad and upset and make you more angry and upset. This is true because all energy is cyclical and what is cyclical is bound to come back around. So to help yourself calm down when you’re angry or upset, have a room with blue (light or sky blue) walls which you can go into for a couple of minutes and simply stare at the walls so as to “cool” down.
In fact, looking or staring at anything blue or light/sky blue will find the job done. And when nothing blue or light/sky blue is around, simply close your eyes and picture this color for a couple of minutes. It really works! The technique is greatly intensified when heavy breathing is added to it. Whatever the source or reason for the anger, just get a photo of it in your head, imagine it disintegrating or turning into dark gray smoke and continue to blow the smoke out through your lips (perform 10-20 deep breaths); then envision the dark gray smoke all gone from mind.
After the last breath, you simply say: “I have released” (this anger, scenario, etc.). And because you don’t want that negative energy to be lingering out in the Universe in order to be available to someone else, simply transmute it into positive energy with deliberate intent and you can do it by either imaging or vocalizing (via imaging see the dark gray smoke convert into a pure white or sparkling crystalline colored smoke or through vocalization say: “the negative energy I just released is converted in positive energy and made accessible for positive use throughout the Universe – So be it!’) .
Okay, getting back to our subject at hand, because blue (light/sky blue) is the color frequency of the Fifth chakra (Vissudha), visualizing or taking a look at the color blue will help to equilibrium (open) this chakra – the chair of communicating, when it comes to higher creativity and self-expression, thus allowing you to express yourself (and frankly and honestly).
We do express ourselves better when we’re “cool” (cool-headed), calm, and relaxed. The colour blue (and light/sky blue) has this deep and healing effect on us, all people, whether we believe in chakras and/or chromatherapy or not.
Now while the color blue copes with being cool, calm, and relaxed, the color has a reverse polarity effect – depression or melancholy, hence a sense of “the blues” that I am sure African-Americans can relate to, at least better than anyone else or any other so-called race (since today, the majority of Americans regardless of race are grabbing and singing “the blues” now due to the state of our union [authorities, society] and our personal unions with self (inner and outer) and other people).
From my personal research I’ve discovered that depression and melancholy affect the liver organ and vice versa. The psycho-emotional aspect of the liver corresponds to the negative emotion of anger; thus anger (and insanity) stores in the liver (the cells of the liver).
It is the use of alcohol (spirits) that releases the evil spirits of anger and madness that are stored in the liver at the man who consumes alcohol. It’s very common for drunk or inebriated people to become very angry, angry, or mad soon after attaining this imbalanced state. This is because the alcohol functions as an instigator for the release of these stored negative emotions that the drunkard or drunk individual has been carrying for some time (perhaps dating back to childhood or the teenage years).
Since alcohol is an intoxicant (a toxic substance; a pollutant of the blood and therefore the body), it not only pollutes on the physical level, but also pollutes on the delicate body level. The aura becomes a dirty dark red color, in addition, little portals (gateways) open up over the air which allows negative or dark spirits (ethereal beings) to enter the individual’s energy body and so take the individual under their hands, mainly on the psychological, emotional, and spiritual level. This is why the Ruler’s imps (government) say that you are “under the influence” of alcohol when you are drunk. It’s not the alcohol that affects your head, as alcohol taints the blood, as it is a poison. It is the dark spirits (ethereal beings) which influence the mind. Liquor stores appropriately promote alcohol in the area called “Spirits.”
Popping the top of a bottle of alcohol allows certain spirits (genie) to emerge, such as in the story of Aladdin, except that the soul (genie) here in this situation isn’t benevolent.
In Islam, we discover that genies (known as “Jinn”) are either malevolent or benevolent. The Universe is filled with dark and light beings or entities and both or on the scene at the moment though you can’t see them as they are invisible, but nevertheless they are there on a different frequency which if you tuned into that specific frequency right now you would see them. They love these types of actions as it feed their appetites. It also makes it easier for them to invade our energy field since these activities lower our vibration. Lower activity lowers your air and drinking alcohol to the point of drunkenness is guaranteed to do such!
Growing up in the hood of South Central Los Angeles, it was all too common to see males and females getting bent (as we say in the hood, which means “drunk’) and then minutes or hours later, being involved in some play, usually a physical fist fight.
I witnessed this with my parents nearly every Thursday night.
My parents would be getting along fine, just talking and laughing, eating fried pork skins (pork cracklins), and listening to music. I’d be in the bed and would feel like I’m in paradise as a result of good music playing and sound of laughter from my parents. I was always happiest hearing, seeing, and knowing my parents were getting along and having a fantastic time together. Nothing else surpassed this for me. Now obviously, the worst times of my childhood was when they had been at each other’s throat like wild dogs.
Well, it wouldn’t be too long after all Thursday night partying, eating swine flesh, and drinking alcohol that my parents would be at each other’s throat, and it would always be my mom who would start the madness. She was borderline alcoholic though she didn’t drink every day. She drank frequently, mostly on weekends (which type of began for us on Thursday), but not ordinary.
My mother used to remind me of Sue Ellen Ewing in the hit tv series, “Dallas”, which just happens to be my all-time favourite television series (thanks to J.R. Ewing, played by actor Larry Hagman).
Sue Ellen would be just fine when she did not drink, but after she began to drink, she was a wreck, which was my mother.
Alcohol always released anger within my own mother. She would begin by cursing up a storm (usually in response to my father saying something about one of her family members or by just saying something which obviously pissed off her).
The next thing you know she would be throwing things (ash trays, pots and pans, drinking glasses, the phone, etc.) and knocking pictures down from the wall. The woman literally tore the house apart. Even as a little boy, I could always deduce that my mom just listened like that after she drank alcohol. This impressed upon me at a young age to never drink alcohol; and after sipping some of the wines and spirits in my parents’ pub merely to experience the taste of the stuff that negatively impacted my family, I never drank alcohol – NO wine, champagne, whiskey, rum, scotch, gin, etc.. I stayed away from that junk because I saw how it made people respond. I saw the harm that followed from drinking this crap.
It is funny how the government is always talking about regulating individuals for purposes of “public safety” (or public health and order) but will not ban alcohol, cigarettes, and pharmaceutical drugs which together kill two million people each year.
And now that I know why my mother was angry and angry after drinking alcohol, I am able to help and help people heal on the energy level in general, the psychological level in particular.
Some people tell me : ‘Oh Djehuty, one glass of wine won’t hurt!” My retort is: “I’m sure one glass of dog piss wouldn’t hurt either, but over time you’d have some serious health problems because the simple fact of the matter is, the stuff does not belong in your body.”
Drinking alcohol taxes the liver while it attempts to filter alcohol in the blood stream.
Now let’s look at the word “melancholy.” Melancholy is defined as: “Sdaness; depression. 2. Pensive reflection. 1. Gloomy; gloomy [Greek “melancholia”]
But if we really want to discover the real meaning of the word “depression”, we have to deduce the word on our own.
Hence, melancholy refers to “black bile.” But wait a moment! Bile is green in color! Yes it is, so what’s going on here? Now we’re getting somewhere in our comprehension of things.
The word “melancholy” derives from the term “melancholia” which is described as:
Melancholia. A mental disorder marked by severe depression and apathy
[Late Latin: MELANCHOLY.] American Heritage Dictionary, 4th edition, 2001, pg. 529
Melancholia. 1. Extreme sadness; melancholy. 2. Obsolete, the major affective depressive disorder. 738
Clearly, bipolar disorder, from a medical perspective or point of view is a form of mental retardation coupled with depression.
The Causation of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder is a Seventh chakra (Sahasrara) imbalance, usually excessive chakra energy.
“The Seventh (or Crown) chakra is the place of Nirvana – independence from opposites – and is thought of as the realm where the individual soul and the Universal Soul are One. This is the realm of the entire union of Shiva and Shakti, of opposites and contradictory tendencies within oneself between self and the cosmos.”
From my experience with people with bipolar illness, all of them had a profound spiritual side, but unfortunately, it was disconnected from reality. Take Larry for example. Though bi-polaric, he was very religious but was heavily disconnected from reality because he thought that he was Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
Larry was a happy guy, especially when things were going his way and he had hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank and might manage his limousines and pretty women. But whenever things didn’t go his way or some type of stressful situation would arise, Larry would lose it. He would freak out! He would run to the bottle and get drunk and could be a complete mess.
“The problem is neurotic when the precipitating cause is an intra-psychic conflict or a traumatic situation or event that is identifiable.” Mosby’s supra.
Larry had two phases that I noticed. To begin with, everything would be fine and he’d be taking his medicine (pharmaceutical drugs). Second, after some traumatic situation could happen, he would fall apart and run to the jar.
While inebriated, he would be very angry and upset, usually in the government. Though drunk, his discourses were always spiritual. It’s strange because in his rage and inebriated state, he spoke lots of spiritual truths, something lots of “normal” drunk people do not do. They may speak truth while drunk (like my mom), but rarely can it be religious truth.
Bipolar people I have dealt with over the years have always acknowledged the religious. This is how I personally know bipolar disorder is partly a Seventh chakra imbalance because the Seventh Chakra is our spiritual center, our connection to the Higher Self, our divine nature.
However, characteristics of the excess Chakra energy person include:
Psychotic, gloomy, or manic-depressive
Frequent migraine headaches
Occasionally passionate, sometimes distant
Joy Gardner-Gordon, in “Pocket Guide to the Chakras” gives us the following example of an excessive Seventh Chakra energy individual (which actually describes Larry into a T):
“This psychotic man imagines that he is Jesus Christ. He has delusions of grandeur as he tries to enlist his twelve disciples. He actually does have the ability to see into the future and to read minds, but his abilities are sporadic and undisciplined, and he can’t distinguish between his dreams, or his paranoias, and truth.” Pg. 100
Since the Seventh Chakra influences the mind, nervous system, pineal and pituitary glands, these glands and organs must be addressed when helping the bipolar disorder individual and you cannot help the bipolar patient or person with those glands and organs with man-made, chemical, pharmaceutical drugs.
Drugs only exacerbate the problem. The human body is not made of medication so drugs don’t do it any good. They only toxify and pollute the body. The body identifies everything that it cannot digest as a poison and attempts to divert it from the body. Therefore, only natural things and substances from the earth can be used to assist the bipolar person or person, e.g. herbs, essential oils, crystals, vegetables and fruits, etc..
Larry had nearly all of the characteristics of a person who has excessive Seventh Chakra energy. Larry always had a constant sense of frustration, he had enormous unrealized energy, he was most certainly depressed and manic-depressive, he got frequent migraine headaches, and he was highly sexually expressive (he had been a member of private sex club).
It’s very true about bipolar disorder individuals that one day they’ll be quite happy, in addition to the world, and the following day or a few days later, they will be greatly depressed like the world is coming to an end.
We must also examine the karmic and past-life element of bipolar individuals.
Bipolar individuals are borderline genius and lunatic.
Along with working on the brain, nervous system, and endocrine system (pituitary and pineal glands), the natural practitioner must work on the liver of the bipolar individual. The liver stores anger and bipolar people have a propensity to become quite irate and out of nowhere and at a whim. For many people with mates who are bi-polar, this behaviour can be quite frightening.
The natural healer or practitioner should also take into account the karmic aspect of bi-polar. Individuals in this current life dispensation that are having bi-polar disorder chose their Earth vehicles replete with so-called anomalies and so-called flaws so as to undergo certain experiences for attainment of specific life experiences for purposes of soul growth; along with the simple fact of paying past life (or lives) karmic debt.
Individuals who experience brain disorders (like bi-polar disorder) in this life are people who in past lives may have mistreated their brains, used their minds and/or knowledge for purposes of harm, manipulated the minds of other people, practiced mind control experiments; pulled the levers of guillotines (which cut people’s heads off as a form of capital punishment), levied capital punishment against innocent persons, etc..
There are no victims in the Universe. We create our own realities and fates through past and present life thoughts, beliefs, and actions. This is why I do not feel sorry for anyone irrespective of their condition, since I’ve spiritual understanding, over-standing, and inner-standing and I know that they played a role in creating and manifesting the condition, whatever it could be, whether it was in this lifetime or a previous life. Again, there are no victims, just participants.
HEALING BI-POLAR DISORDER NATURALLY
HERBS. I recommend using nervine herbs for bi-polar disorder. These herbs include Kava Kava, Passionflower, Lavender flower, Jatamansi, Chamomile, St. Jon’s Wort, Valerian Root, Blue Vervain, Hops, Scullcap, Catnip, and Cinnamon to name a few.
AROMATHERAPY. There are plenty of good essential oils which are effective in the treatment and healing of bi-polar disease and they include Neroli, Bergamot, Lavender, Jasmine, Davana, May Chang, Blood Orange, Linden, Valerian, and Melissa (True).
CRYSTALS. There are plenty of crystals which may be utilised in the treatment and curing of thyroid disease, but by far, the best stone to use for bi-polar disease is lepidolite. Lepidolite comprises lithium.
Other good stones/crystals for bi-polar include Charoite, Larimar (Dolphin Stone), Sugilite, Amethyst, and Peridot.
The above crystals and stones are best for the depression component of bi-polar (and may be placed directly on the Ajna chakra located between the eyebrows).
But for the grounding aspect of bi-polar, I recommend the following stones and crystals: Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Jet, Obsidian, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, and Magnetite. These stones can be placed anywhere from the bottom of the feet up to the genital area, or, around the body in a grid)
Crystals can be applied directly to the Sixth chakra (Brow Chakra) while lying down (for about 15-30 minutes) or can be made into an elixir (allowing the crystal sit in water for a period of 24 hours, receiving both moon and sunlight) and drank (a few dropper-fuls or 1-4 ounces).
Dherbs services that can also help in cases of bi-polar disorder (for purposes of healing) include Chakra Alignment/Balancing and Hemisphere Synchronization Therapy.
