Bipolar disorder is a very complex disease to a lot of people, including medical doctors, and rightly so. As with every other disease in allopathic medicine, there will never be a cure for bipolar disorder. You can’t solely treat this disorder from the physical, and especially with harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs. Additionally, Western medical doctors admit that they don’t understand the cause of this disorder.
All disease and disorder first occur on the energy level before manifesting physically. Consequently, healing of diseases must occur first on the energy level, the root or causative level. This is the reason no cure or healing of bipolar disorder could ever happen in Western medicine because Western medicine doesn’t 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 healing.
So as to address an issue (disease, sickness) we must first understand what it is. You can only begin the healing process once you first “know” what a thing is. Every disease has an origin in which etiology educates us can be studied.
Though an herbalist, my way of health and healing is wholistic and encompasses all realms of human existential makeup, for instance, bio-magnetic sheath (human aura) or subtle bodies realm, i.e. ethereal body, mental body, astral body, etc..
All living beings have an invisible 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” (air). It can be detected and photographed with a specific type 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 disease is medically defined as:
“A major mental disorder characterized by episodes of mania, depression, or mixed mood. One or the other phase may be predominant at any particular time, one phase may appear alternately with another, or components of both phases may be present concurrently. Characteristics of the manic phase are excessive emotional displays, such as excitement, elation, euphoria, or in some instances irritability accompanied by hyperactivity, boisterousness, diminished ability to concentrate, decreased need for sleep, and apparently unbounded energy. In extreme mania, a sense of omnipotence and delusions or grandeur might happen. In the depressive state, marked apathy and under-activity are accompanied by feelings of profound sadness, loneliness, and reduced self-esteem. Causes of the disorder are multiple and complex, often involving biologic, psychological, social, and social and cultural aspects. Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 5th edition (1998), pg. 196
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 gradually graduates to mania; and the mania and depression may involve alternating episodes, an up and down effect. Therefore, bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression.
In my traditional manner, let’s break matters down into pabulum so we can find a thorough and pellucid understanding of bipolar disorder.
The word or prefix “bi” means: “2; two: menopausal 2. Occurring twice during: biweekly [Latin: bis, bi – meaning “twice.”]
The word “polar” means: 1. Of, measured from. Or referred to a rod 2. Of or near the North or South Pole. 3.
The word “polar” derives from the word “pole” which means: “Either or two oppositely charged terminals, as in an electric cell or battery ; either of two opposing forces.
From the above break down of the term “bipolar disorder”, we develop “a lack of sequence or an ailment of two sticks of conflicting forces or extremes (or mental states).”
Basically, bipolar disorder deals with a fluctuation of extremes on the emotional level – depression and mania. Depression copes with a saddened state whereas mania deals with an excited or excited state.
Depression. noun. 1. The act of depressing or condition of being gloomy. 2. A sunken area; hollow 3. The state of feeling sad or despondent. 4. Pschol. 235
Depression. [Latin: “deprimere” meaning “to press]. 3. 4. An abnormal emotional state characterized by exaggerated feelings of sadness, depression, dejection, worthlessness, emptiness, and hoplessness that are improper and out of proportion to reality. The condition is neurotic if the precipitating cause is an intra-psychic battle or a traumatic situation or event that is identifiable, even though the person is not able to describe the overreaction to it. The status is psychotic when there is severe there is 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. 354
Mania. noun. An intensively extreme enthusiasm or desire; craze. 2. A psychological disorder characterized by excessive physical activity and emotional excitement. 3. Violent abnormal behavior.
From the word “mania” we get the word “maniac” which means: One having an excessive enthusiasm for something. [Greek: maniakos, meaning “mad”, mania, meaning “madness.] .
We also get the term” manic” which means: “Of, influenced by, or marked with mania.”
Are you starting to truly know the depth of the rock band, The Bangles, hit song “Manic Monday” now from all of the definitions supra? I am!
Monday is the day of the week that’s named in honor of the moon; hence Monday is a corruption of Moon’s Day. America may profess to be a Christian country, 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 nation. Not a Christ-like nation, but a Christian country. There’s 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 colour blue deals with relaxing and soothing and this color blue (especially light blue) helps us to relax and to calm down. This is extremely correct! So if you’ve got an irate and/or anxious or hyperactive child(ren), you may want to think about painting their bedroom light blue in order to positively impact them with this color’s frequency or vibration.
The colour blue is the antidote for the color red, which deals with fire, fever, and fieriness. If you’re upset or angry, your air becomes a tainted and unhealthy red color because on an energetic level you’re on fire (burning), and you begin to exude the frequency of the color, and in accordance with the law of attraction, as long as your frequency is the frequency of the colour (tainted or dark red), you will bring in different things into your orb or setting that matches this same frequency. 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 that you could go into for a couple of minutes and just stare at the walls so as to “cool” down.
In fact, looking or staring at anything blue or light/sky blue will get the job done. And when nothing blue or light/sky blue is about, simply close your eyes and visualize this color for a couple of minutes. It really works! The technique is greatly intensified when deep breathing is added to it. No matter the source or reason for the anger, just get a photo of it on your mind, imagine it disintegrating or turning to dark grey smoke and continue to blow the smoke out via your lips (perform 10-20 deep breaths); then envision the dark gray smoke all gone from your mind.
After the last breath, you just say: “I’ve released” (this anger, situation, etc.). And as you don’t want that negative energy to be lingering out in the Universe so as to be available to somebody else, simply transmute it into positive energy with deliberate intent and you can do it by either imaging or vocalizing (through 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 published is hereby converted into positive energy and made accessible for favorable use throughout the Universe – So be it!’) .
Okay, getting back to our subject at hand, because blue (light/sky blue) is the colour frequency of the Fifth chakra (Vissudha), visualizing or looking at the colour blue will help to balance (open) this chakra – the chair of communication, when it comes to higher creativity and self-expression, thus letting you express yourself (and truthfully and honestly).
We do express ourselves when we are “cool” (cool-headed), calm, and relaxed. The color blue (and light/sky blue) has this profound and healing effect on us, all of us, whether we believe in chakras and/or chromatherapy or not.
Now while the color blue deals with being cool, calm, and relaxed, the colour has an opposite polarity effect – depression or depression, hence a feeling of “the blues” which I am sure African-Americans can relate to, at least better than anyone else or any other so-called race (because now, the vast majority of Americans regardless of race are grabbing and singing “the blues” now due to the state of our marriage [authorities, society] and our personal marriages with self (inner and outer) and other people).
From my personal research I’ve discovered that depression and depression affect the liver, organ and vice versa. The psycho-emotional facet of the liver corresponds to the negative emotion of anger; thus anger (and madness) stores in the liver (the cells of the liver).
It’s the use of alcohol (spirits) that releases the evil spirits of anger and madness that are stored in the liver in the person who consumes alcohol. It’s very common for drunk or inebriated people to become very angry, angry, or angry soon after reaching this imbalanced state. This is because the alcohol serves as an instigator for the release of these stored negative emotions that the drunkard or drunk person has been carrying for a while (possibly dating back to childhood or the teenage years).
Because alcohol is an intoxicant (a poisonous substance; a pollutant of the blood and therefore the body), it not only pollutes on the physical level, but additionally relies on the delicate body level. The aura becomes a dirty dark red color, in addition, little portals (gateways) open up within the aura which permits negative or dark spirits (ethereal beings) to enter the person’s energy body and thus take the individual under their control, mainly on the psychological, emotional, and spiritual level. This is why the Ruler’s imps (authorities) say that you’re “under the influence” of alcohol when you are drunk. It is not the alcohol that influences your mind, as alcohol taints the blood, since it is a poison. It is the dark spirits (ethereal beings) which influence the mind. Liquor stores appropriately sell alcohol at the area called “Spirits.”
Popping the top of a bottle of alcohol enables certain spirits (genie) to emerge, like in the story of Aladdin, except that the soul (genie) here in this situation isn’t benevolent.
In Islam, we find that genies (called “Jinn”) are either malevolent or benevolent. The Universe is full of light and dark beings or entities and both or on the scene at the moment though you can not see them since they are invisible, but nevertheless they are there on a different frequency which if you tuned into that particular frequency right now you’d see them. The evil spirits are lingering around us waiting for us to get into a fight or confrontation, to become angry and vexed, to have lower chakra sex, to consume alcohol and become drunk; and to consume drugs and fade from our minds. They love these types of activities as it feed their appetites. It also makes it easier for them to invade our energy field because these activities lower our vibration. Lower activity lowers your air and drinking alcohol to the point of drunkenness is sure to do such!
Growing up in the hood of South Central Los Angeles, it was all too common to witness males and females getting bent (as we say in the hood, which means “drunk’) and then minutes or hours later, being involved in some drama, usually a physical fist fight.
I witnessed this with my own parents nearly every Thursday night. My father got paid every Thursday from his job and my parents had a ritual of first taking the whole family out to dinner (usually at Bob’s Big Boy restaurant or Norm’s restaurant near Century Boulevard and Vermont Avenue), then to my paternal grandma’s house, followed by the local V.I.P. record store (now defunct) to purchase the most recent musical records (The Gap Band, Teena Marie, James Brown, Rick James, etc.), and lastly, to the corner liquor store for some spirits (alcohol) and cracklin’ pork skins.
My parents could 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 am in paradise as a result of good music playing and sound of laughter from my parents. I was always happiest hearing, seeing, and understanding my parents were getting along and having a good 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 would not be too long after all that Thursday night partying, eating swine flesh, and drinking alcohol which 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 (that sort of began for us on Thursday), but not everyday.
My mother used to remind me of Sue Ellen Ewing in the hit tv show, “Dallas”, which just happens to be my all-time favorite television series (thanks to J.R. Ewing, played by actor Larry Hagman).
Sue Ellen would be just fine when she didn’t drink, but after she started to drink, she was a wreck, and that was my mother.
Alcohol always released anger in my mother. She would begin by cursing up a storm (usually in reaction to my father saying something about among her family members or by simply saying something that clearly pissed her off).
The next thing you know she’d be throwing things (ash trays, pots and pans, drinking glasses, the telephone, 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 mother only acted like that after she drank alcohol. This impressed upon me at a young age to never drink alcohol; and after sipping on some of the wines and spirits in my parents’ bar just to experience the flavor of this stuff that negatively impacted my family, I never drank alcohol – NO wine, champagne, whiskey, rum, scotch, gin, etc.. I stayed away from this junk since I saw how it made people react. I saw the injury that followed from drinking this crap.
It’s funny how the government is always talking about regulating people for purposes of “public security” (or public health and order) but won’t prohibit alcohol, cigarettes, and pharmaceutical drugs which kill two million people per year.
And now that I understand why my mother used to become angry and angry after drinking alcohol, I am able to assist and help people heal on the energy level in general, the psychological level in particular.
Some folks tell me : ‘Oh Djehuty, 1 glass of wine won’t hurt!” My retort is: “I am sure one glass of dog piss wouldn’t hurt either, but over time you would have some serious health issues since the simple fact of the matter is, the stuff does not belong in your body.”
Drinking alcohol taxes the liver while it tries to filter alcohol in the blood flow. Again, liquor adversely affects the liver.
Let’s look at the word “melancholy.” Melancholy is described as: “Sdaness; melancholy. 2. Pensive reflection. 1. Gloomy; sad [Greek “melancholia”]
However, if we really want to discover the true meaning of the word “melancholy”, we have to deduce the word on our own.
Hence, melancholy refers to “black bile.” But wait a moment! Bile is green in colour! Yes it is, so what is going on here? Now we’re getting somewhere in our comprehension of things.
The word “melancholy” derives from the term “melancholia” that is defined 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; depression. 2. Obsolete, the major affective depressive disorder. [Greek “melas”, meaning ‘black’, + “chole”, meaning ‘bile’] See also BIPOLAR DISORDER; DEPRESSION. 738
Clearly, bipolar disorder, from a medical perspective or point of view is a kind of mental retardation combined 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 – freedom 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 total union of Shiva and Shakti, of opposites and contradictory tendencies within oneself and between self and the cosmos.”
From my experience with individuals with bipolar disorder, all of them had a deep spiritual side, but sadly, it had been disconnected from reality. Take Larry for instance. Though bi-polaric, he was very spiritual but was greatly disconnected from reality because he believed he was Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Larry is Jewish (Caucasian Jew) but considered himself a Messianic Jew (a Jew who believes in and accepts Jesus as 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 appear, Larry would lose it. He would freak out! He would run to the jar and get drunk and would be a complete mess.
“The condition is neurotic if 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 would occur, he’d fall apart and run to the bottle.
While inebriated, he would be very angry and upset, usually at 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 a lot of “ordinary” drunk people do not do. They may speak truth while drunk (like my mother), but rarely is it religious truth.
Bipolar people I have dealt with over the years have always acknowledged the spiritual. This is the way I know bipolar disorder is partly a Seventh chakra imbalance since the Seventh Chakra is our spiritual center, our link to the Higher Self, our divine nature.
However, characteristics of the excess Chakra energy individual include:
Constant sense of frustration
Psychotic, depressed, or manic-depressive
Frequent migraine headaches
Sometimes 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 really describes Larry into a T):
“This psychotic man imagines that he is Jesus Christ. He has delusions of grandeur as he attempts to enlist his twelve disciples. He really does have the ability to see into the future and to read minds, but his skills are sporadic and undisciplined, and he can’t differentiate between his dreams, or his paranoias, and truth.” Pg. 100
Since the Seventh Chakra affects the brain, nervous system, pineal and pituitary glands, these organs and glands must be addressed when helping the bipolar disorder individual and you cannot help the bipolar patient or person with these glands and glands using man-made, chemical, pharmaceutical drugs.
Drugs only exacerbate the problem. The human body isn’t made of medication so drugs do not do it any good. They only toxify and pollute the body. The body identifies everything that it can’t digest as a poison and seeks to expel 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, fruits and vegetables, etc..
Larry had nearly all of the characteristics of a individual with excessive Seventh Chakra energy. Larry always had a constant sense of frustration, he had tremendous unrealized power, he was certainly depressed and manic-depressive, he got regular migraine headaches, and he was highly sexually expressive (he was a part of private sex club).
It’s very true about bipolar illness individuals that one day they will be very happy, on top of the world, and the following day or a couple of days later, they will be greatly depressed like the world is coming to an end.
We must also examine the karmic and past-life aspect of bipolar individuals.
Bipolar individuals are borderline genius and lunatic.
Along with working on the mind, 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 tendency to become quite irate and out of nowhere and at a whim. For many people with mates who are bi-polar, this behavior can be quite frightening.
The natural healer or practitioner must also take into consideration the karmic part of bi-polar. Individuals in this present life dispensation who are experiencing bi-polar disorder chose their Earth vehicles replete with so-called anomalies and so-called defects so as to undergo certain experiences for benefit of certain life experiences for purposes of soul growth; in addition to the simple fact of paying past life (or lives) karmic debt.
People who experience brain disorders (such as 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 injury, manipulated the minds of different people, practiced mind control experiments; pulled the levers of guillotines (which cut people’s heads off as a kind of capital punishment), levied capital punishment against innocent persons, etc..
There are no victims in the Universe. We create our own realities and fates via past and current life ideas, 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 illness, whatever it may 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 disease. These herbs can be taken in tea form, capsule form, or liquid extract form and can be taken throughout the day.
AROMATHERAPY. There are loads of good essential oils that are effective in the treatment and curing of thyroid disorder and they include Neroli, Bergamot, Lavender, Jasmine, Davana, May Chang, Blood Orange, Linden, Valerian, and Melissa (True).
CRYSTALS. There are loads of crystals which may be utilised in the treatment and healing of bi-polar disorder, but by far, the best stone to use for bi-polar disorder is lepidolite. Lepidolite comprises lithium.
The aforementioned crystals and stones are ideal for the depression component of bi-polar (and may be put directly on the Ajna chakra located between the eyebrows).
However, because of its grounding aspect of bi-polar, I recommend the following crystals and stones: Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Jet, Obsidian, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, and Magnetite. These stones can be placed anywhere from the bottom of the feet up into the genital region, 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 (letting the crystal sit in water for a period of 24 hours, getting both moon and sun light) and drank (a few dropper-fuls or 1-4 ounces).
Dherbs services that could also help in cases of bi-polar disorder (for purposes of recovery) comprise Chakra Alignment/Balancing and Hemisphere Synchronization Therapy.
