Bipolar disorder is a very complex disease to many people, including medical doctors, and rightly so. Much like each other disorder in allopathic medicine, there will never be a cure for bipolar disorder. You can’t solely treat this ailment from the physical, and particularly with harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs. Plus, Western medical doctors admit that they don’t know the cause of the disorder.
All disease and disease first happen on the energy level before manifesting physically. Therefore, healing of all diseases must occur 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 energy or vibration, and the human body has an energy or vibratory body. Western medicine does not even take care of the cellular level of recovery, which follows the energy level of recovery.
In order to tackle an issue (disease, sickness) we must first know what it is. You can just begin the healing process when you first “know” what a thing is. Every disease has an origin in which etiology educates us can be researched.
Though an herbalist, my way of healing and health is wholistic and encompasses all realms of human existential makeup, for instance, 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 person (human being) down to the animals and insects. This invisible energy field is known as the “bio-magnetic sheath” (aura). It can be detected and photographed with a specific kind of photography known as “Kirlian photography.”
Bipolar disorder is medically defined as:
“A significant mental disorder characterized by episodes of mania, depression, or mixed mood. One or another stage may be predominant at any particular time, 1 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 cases irritability accompanied by hyperactivity, boisterousness, impaired ability to concentrate, decreased need for sleep, and seemingly unbounded energy. In intense mania, a sense of omnipotence and delusions or grandeur may occur. From the depressive condition, marked apathy and under-activity are accompanied by feelings of deep sadness, loneliness, and reduced self-esteem. Causes of the disorder are multiple and complex, often involving biologic, psychological, social, and social and cultural factors. 196
It’s 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 depression and mania can involve alternating episodes, an up and down effect. Therefore, bipolar disorder is also called manic depression.
In my traditional fashion, let us break matters down into pabulum so we can find a thorough and pellucid understanding of bipolar disorder.
The word or prefix “bi” means: “2; twice: bipolar 2. Occurring twice during: biweekly [Latin: bis, bi – meaning “twice.”]
The term “polar” means: 1. Or referred to a rod 2. Of or close to 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 breakdown of the term “bipolar disorder”, we come up with “a lack of order 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 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. 235
Depression. [Latin: “deprimere” meaning “to press down]. 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 when the precipitating cause is an intra-psychic conflict or a traumatic situation or event that’s identifiable, despite the fact that the man is unable to describe 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 conflict; it is often accommodated by hallucinations, delusions, and confusion concerning time, place, and identity. 354
Mania. noun. An intensively intense enthusiasm or desire; trend. 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 by mania.”
Are you starting to really know the depth of the rock band, The Bangles, hit song “Manic Monday” now from all of 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 nation, but a Christian country. There’s a difference!
Monday has always been associated with emotional imbalance, lunacy, mania, and sorrow (“the blues”) to be precise. Originally, lunacy was attributed to the moon.
In chromatherapy, the colour blue deals with relaxing and soothing and this color blue (particularly light blue) helps us to relax and to calm down. This is extremely correct! So if you have an irate and/or anxious or hyperactive child(ren), you might want to think about painting their bedroom light blue so as to positively impact them with this color’s frequency or vibration.
The color blue is the antidote for the colour red, which deals with fire, fever, and fieriness. If you’re upset or angry, your aura becomes a tainted and unhealthy reddish color because on an energetic level you’re on fire (burning), and you begin to exude the frequency of this colour, 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 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. Karma is cyclical energy coming back around to its origin. So to help yourself calm down when you are angry or upset, have a room with blue (light or sky blue) walls that you can go into for a few minutes and just stare at the walls in order to “cool” down.
Actually, staring or looking at anything blue or light/sky blue will get the job done. And if nothing blue or light/sky blue is around, simply close your eyes and visualize this color for a few minutes. The technique is greatly intensified when heavy breathing is added to it. Whatever the source or cause of this anger, simply get a picture of it on your mind, imagine it disintegrating or turning to dark grey smoke and continue to blow the smoke out through your lips (perform 10-20 deep breaths); then imagine the dark grey smoke all gone from mind.
With each breath you release the cause or source of your anger. After the last breath, you simply say: “I’ve released” (this anger, situation, etc.). And because you do not 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 (via imaging see the dark gray smoke convert into a pure white or sparkling crystalline colored smoke or via vocalization say: “the negative energy I just published is converted into positive energy and made available 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 colour blue will help to equilibrium (open) this chakra – the seat of communicating, when it comes to higher creativity and self-expression, thus letting you express yourself (and truthfully and frankly).
We do express ourselves when we’re “cool” (cool-headed), calm, and relaxed. The colour 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 copes with being cool, calm, and relaxed, the color has a reverse polarity effect – depression or depression, hence a feeling of “the blues” that I am sure African-Americans can relate to, at least better than anyone else or some other so-called race (because now, the vast majority of Americans regardless of race are grabbing and singing “the blues” today 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 have 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; consequently 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 which are stored in the liver in the person who consumes alcohol. It’s very common for drunk or inebriated individuals to become very upset, angry, or angry shortly after attaining 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 also pollutes on the delicate body level. The aura becomes a dirty dark red color, additionally, little portals (gateways) open up over the air that permits negative or dark spirits (ethereal beings) to enter the individual’s energy body and thus take the individual under their control, mainly on the mental, emotional, and spiritual level. This is the reason the Ruler’s imps (government) say that you’re “under the influence” of alcohol when you are drunk. It is not the alcohol that affects your head, as alcohol taints the blood, since it is a poison. It is the dark spirits (ethereal beings) which influence the mind. Liquor stores appropriately promote alcohol at the section called “Spirits.”
Popping the top of a bottle of alcohol allows certain spirits (genie) to come out, like in the story of Aladdin, except the soul (genie) here in this scenario 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 right now though you can’t see them as they are invisible, but nevertheless they are there on another frequency that if you tuned into that particular frequency right now you would see them. They love these kinds of activities as it feed their appetites. It also makes it easier for them to invade our energy field since these actions lower our vibration. Lower activity lowers your aura 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 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, typically a physical fist fight.
I witnessed this with my parents almost every Thursday night.
I would be in the bed and would feel like I am in paradise as a result of fantastic 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 exceeded this for me. Now of course, the worst times of my childhood was when they were at each other’s throat like wild dogs.
Well, it wouldn’t be too long after all that 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 although she didn’t drink daily. She drank frequently, mostly on weekends (that type of started for us on Thursday), but not ordinary.
My mother used to remind me of Sue Ellen Ewing from the hit television show, “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 started to drink, she was a mess, which was my mother.
Alcohol always released anger in my own mother. She would begin by cursing up a storm (usually in reaction to my dad saying something about among her relatives 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 telephone, etc.) and knocking pictures down from the wall. The woman literally tore the house apart. Even as a small boy, I could always deduce that my mom only acted like that after she drank alcohol. This impressed upon me at a young age to never drink alcohol; and after sipping a few of the wines and spirits in my parents’ pub merely to experience the taste 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 respond. I saw the harm that followed from drinking this crap.
It is funny how the government is always talking about regulating people for purposes of “public safety” (or public health and order) but won’t ban alcohol, cigarettes, and pharmaceutical drugs which kill two million people each year.
And now that I understand why my mother was angry and angry after drinking alcohol, I am ready to help and help people heal on the energy level in general, the psychological level in particular.
Some people tell me ‘Oh Djehuty, 1 glass of wine won’t hurt!” My retort is: “I’m sure one glass of dog piss would not hurt either, but over time you’d have some serious health issues because the fact of the matter is, the stuff doesn’t belong in your body.”
Drinking alcohol taxes the liver while it attempts to filter alcohol from the blood flow.
Let’s look at the word “melancholy.” Melancholy is described as: “Sdaness; melancholy. 2. Pensive reflection. 1. Gloomy; gloomy [Greek “melancholia”]
However, if we really want to find out the true meaning of the word “depression”, we have to deduce the word on our own.
Hence, melancholy describes “black bile.” But wait a minute! Bile is green in color! Yes it is, so what’s going on here? Now we are getting somewhere in our comprehension of things.
The word “depression” derives from the term “melancholia” which is described as:
Melancholia. A mental disorder marked by severe depression and apathy
American Heritage Dictionary, 4th edition, 2001, pg. 529
Melancholia. 1. Extreme sadness; melancholy. 2. Obsolete, the major affective depressive disorder. 738
Certainly, 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 location of Nirvana – independence from opposites – and is thought of as the kingdom where the individual soul and the Universal Soul are One. This is the realm of the entire union of Shiva and Shakti, of all opposites and conflicting tendencies within oneself and between self and the cosmos.”
From my experience with individuals with bipolar disorder, all of them had a profound spiritual side, but sadly, it was disconnected from reality. Take Larry for example. Though bi-polaric, he was very spiritual but was greatly disconnected from reality because he believed that he was Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
Larry was generally 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 did not go his way or some type of stressful situation would appear, Larry would lose it. He would run to the jar and get drunk and could be a complete mess.
“The condition is neurotic when the precipitating cause is an intra-psychic conflict or a traumatic situation or event that is identifiable.”
Larry had two phases that I noticed. To begin with, everything would be okay and he’d be taking his medication (pharmaceutical drugs). Secondly, after some traumatic situation would occur, he’d fall apart and run to the jar.
While inebriated, he would be very angry and upset, usually in the authorities. Though drunk, his discourses were always spiritual. It is strange because in his anger and inebriated state, he talked lots of spiritual truths, something lots of “normal” drunk people don’t 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 the way 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 excessive Chakra energy person include:
Constant sense of frustration
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 excess Seventh Chakra energy individual (which really describes Larry into a T):
“This psychotic man imagines he is Jesus Christ. He has delusions of grandeur as he attempts to enlist his twelve disciples. He actually does have the ability to see into the future and to read minds, but his skills are sporadic and undisciplined, and he cannot distinguish between his fantasies, or his paranoias, and reality.” Pg. 100
Since the Seventh Chakra affects the brain, nervous system, pineal and pituitary glands, these glands and organs have to be addressed when helping the bipolar disorder individual and you cannot help the bipolar individual or person with those glands and organs with man-made, chemical, pharmaceutical medications.
Drugs only exacerbate the problem. The human body is not made of drugs so drugs do not do it any good. They just toxify and pollute the body. The body identifies everything it can’t digest as a poison and seeks to divert it from the body. Therefore, only natural things and substances from the ground can be used to assist the bipolar individual or individual, e.g. herbs, essential oils, crystals, vegetables and fruits, etc..
Larry had nearly all of the characteristics of a person with excess 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 illness individuals that one day they will be very happy, in addition to the world, and the following day or a few days later, they’ll be greatly depressed as the world is coming to an end.
We must also look at the karmic and past-life element of bipolar individuals.
Bipolar people are borderline genius and lunatic.
Along with working on the brain, nervous system, and endocrine system (pituitary and pineal glands), the organic practitioner should work on the liver of the bipolar individual. The liver stores anger and bipolar people have a tendency to become very irate and from 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 should also take into consideration the karmic part of bi-polar. Individuals in this present life dispensation who are having bi-polar disease chose their Earth vehicles replete with so-called anomalies and so-called defects in order to undergo certain experiences for attainment of specific life experiences for purposes of soul growth; in addition to 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 previous lives may have abused 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 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 through past and present life ideas, beliefs, and activities. This is why I don’t feel sorry for anyone irrespective of their condition, because I’ve religious understanding, over-standing, and inner-standing and I know that they played a role in creating and manifesting the illness, whatever it could be, whether it was in this lifetime or a previous lifetime. Justice (karma) permeates our Universe and no action goes unnoticed or unreturned. Again, there are no victims, only participants.
HERBS. I suggest using nervine herbs for bi-polar disease. 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. These herbs can be taken in tea form, capsule form, or liquid extract form and can be taken during the day.
AROMATHERAPY. There are plenty of good essential oils that are effective in the treatment and curing of thyroid 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 disorder is lepidolite. Lepidolite contains lithium.
Other fantastic stones/crystals for bi-polar include Charoite, Larimar (Dolphin Stone), Sugilite, Amethyst, and Peridot.
The aforementioned crystals and stones are best for the depression component of bi-polar (and may be put directly on the Ajna chakra located between the eyebrows).
But 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 to 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, receiving both moon and sun light) and drank (a few dropper-fuls or 1-4 oz).
Dherbs services that can also help in cases of bi-polar disorder (for purposes of healing) include Chakra Alignment/Balancing and Hemisphere Synchronization Therapy.
