Oh my Holy Spirit, a little while ago, we were discussing Psychiatry and I neglected to ask You this question on the list. So many times in this world, Psychosis can be declared when the patient is really only receiving the sound of Your Voice within their head. Naturally, any spiritual ability to hear unseen Voices can be frightening to the uninitiated. Therefore, fear’s a factor in the ultimate health of a person because it’s the basis of mental confusion. Alas, all too frequently, medical professionals are given complete and controlling authority over what must be done next. What is Your opinion?
“Y.E.S! They are so dependent upon material means that they can’t incorporate any proof of an immaterial dimension. Ironically, aggressive words might then begin to come in from a psychic, negative realm, simply because a person’s newly-opened hearing channels are perceived as a threat. The heavenly forces would have failed to connect, due to the fearful unexplainability within the patient’s material perception. Input, outside of the tangible, earthly realm, has no reality or explanation to such a closed mind. Negative spirits seek such conveniently-opened souls to control with fear once the person has turned away from the Holy Being trying to get its attention.
That event could have provided proof of an unconsidered truth, but the hearer closed the door and resisted an opportunity that may only come once in a lifetime. The necessity to rearrange this human’s imperfect belief structure is too frightening to face and the individual cannot accomplish this alone. However, a lowgrade form of fear might truly have gained a foothold in that poor fellow’s mind.
That’s why I send Messengers from time to time to show the way and to explain these Mysteries in clear and personal terms. That’s why Counsellors exist in the first place! They make clear and entertaining….the more entertaining, the better…. examples and stories which enlighten the suffering one and can make an immediate change in a person’s interpretation of the incoming impression. Fear can disappear instantly when knowledge is applied!”
I can think of a living example, right here at this Via Via Resort in Entebbe, Africa. Maximus is still only a puppy at five months old. But, he’s already a gigantic dog. He’s a South African Ridgeback with a big mouth and a loud bark and must learn who is not a threat and danger to himself and his fine property here, within an ever-changing guest population. I got the full treatment when he first saw me, and again later, when I approached carrying an open umbrella. His untrained, natural response is Fear and he slams his mental door until he knows that he’s safe and with a friend. So, carefully at first and if encouraged, he will sniff an extended finger to investigate. That simple willingness on his part can “magically” change his attitude and comfort level. With mutual input, Max quickly becomes your NBF… your New Best Friend…. and a welcoming one at every new encounter. What a difference!
Maybe a “Psychotic” individual can simply sense the presence of an Invisible Max? they might accurately evaluate its potential threat factors. This is no joke on either Level; so it’s the calm reaction of the chosen receiver which determines what happens next. Denying the dog’s existence simply doesn’t work. But, taking a moment to make friends with it yields lasting benefits. Both sides lose the fear of each other and even gain a powerful ally. Plus, they learn a lot which helps in future relationships.
Hey. a well-placed piece of raw meat has often gotten a thief past the front gate! What might a Voice Hearer have to placate a marauding, inner invader? Try friendship! Counsellors call it “Facing the problem!” “Facing Reality!” That can shrink a desprate problem to a manageable puppy, simply by removing fear from the equation. Experts say that dogs and many animals can smell the pheremones of fear coming from a frightened person and this encourages them in their aggressiveness. Max’s story does make an interesting and memorable example to use here, because everyone can identify with it.
