PSYCHOLOGY

Now I’ve read the first topics (in the forum) that you’ve answered, I’m quite impressed. Courageous how everyone is looking at themselves and how beautiful the answers. Very direct and you can get a lot out of them. Question is if you’re able to do that if it’s about yourself.
The way I see it now, it’s a very nice way to communicate…I’m glad I can be a part of it.
And a question bubbles up. Don’t if you can do anything with it?
To what extend can psychology and spirituality go together? For I’m dealing with both now and frequently it creates a dubble feeling. Like the one is appropriate and the other one doesn’t fit with it.
What I’m trying to indicate is when I’m with the psychologist, I recognize a lot of the approach I would like, but there’s also a kind of resistance on my part.
Listening to you Inner Voice, for example. I don’t mention this to the psychologist, because they’ll almost certify me insane. And I can mention more examples like that.
Could you give some clarity?
Warm greetings,
C.

Bravo, dear C., across the threshold too!

No, that’s not a question. That’s a choice. Everyone can change. Every road, every rhythm is different, but everyone can change. Not everyone wants to really, though.

Nice to have you here.

Good question. A lot of people struggle with that one. To what extend do they fit.
The funny part of it is that the whole phrasing of the question is based on the illusion of separation. As if psychology and spirituality are two individual components. Nothing is further from the truth. They’re different labels and one label is taken more seriously in your society than the other label. So it’s a matter of perception.

If I'd leave the illusion for what it is, you could state that psychology is inextricably bound up with spirituality. For spirituality is the connection between all you experience, feel and think.

It’s an extremely sad and crushing attack on the effectiveness of your aid, if you can not be completely who you are. If you don’t have the courage (yet) to let yourself in for judgement of the psychologist, you could consider finding a new label to describe the Inner Voice. Intuition is a phrase that’s fairly acceptable, for instance.
Do realize that your anxiety to talk about these subjects has everything to do with your own judgement. That YOU don’t feel completely comfortable with concepts as Inner Voice and Spirituality.

Also realize that the response of others are a very effective way to discover what’s going on inside yourself on a conscious and subconscious level. The rejection or approval you receive, is the rejection or approval you place on yourself.
The choice to don’t show anyone who you really are, is all about your own fear to commit yourself. Not necessarily something about the psychologist.
Thanks again for your question. It’s an important one.
