Schizophrenia and spirit attachments
Schizophrenia is a serious and terrible mental disorder. It can be caused by a serious chemical imbalance in the brain. It can be treated with medication but not usually cured. I have known people afflicted with this disease and see what it does to them and their families. I hope that someday in the near future the medical community can find a cure for this horrible condition. Many people who have schizophrenia claim to hear voices or see things. Most times these are hallucinations that go along with the disease and a brain malfunction. But is everyone who hears voices or sees people that are not there really mentally ill? What about the mediums and sensitives of the world? I am talking about people who are normal in every way except for these two strange symptoms of hearing and seeing things that others do not. Are they all crazy? For many years the psychiatric community said "yes." Today things seem to be gradually changing, ever so slowly. There are some mental health counselors, and doctors that are actually opening up to looking into paranormal possibilities with some patients. Spirit attachments are also a real problem that seems to display the same symptoms as schizophrenia. A spirit attachment is when one or more spirits attach themselves to a living person and seek to live through them in a sense. It is much like possession but not as dramatic and at times more subtle. Spirit attachments talk to their victim, all the time, putting thoughts in their head and/or confusing their host with suggested ideas that are some times very dark or negative.
I have helped people with spirit attachments before. It is always an ugly business. Certain people are more prone to spirit attachment than others.Vulnerability to spirit attachment varies in individuals, according to predisposition, health and circumstances. Illness, injury, drugs, emotional disturbance and the presence of attached spirits, may all impair resistance. People have even experienced the attachment of an organ donor after an organ transplant. People with certain brain abnormalities are also prone to spirit attachment. drugs may help real schizophrenia but they do not help someone with a spirit attachment. In some cases they can make it worse.So how do you know if someone is truly schizophrenic, or if they have a spirit attachment? That is hard to say at this point. I have worked a couple of times with people who heard voices and were now medicated by a mental health professional because of it. I have also gotten those very voices on tape, so now what? Is the tape recorder suffering from a mental disorder? i think not.
Most people in the paranormal field will not even try to help someone who has been diagnosed with mental issues of any kind. Sadly this often eliminates these folks ever getting the answers they want to get about their condition and if they are hearing hallucinations or something else. People in the paranormal field do not want to get involved with "crazy people" as they assume that nothing is going on, and the person has been diagnosed with some mental problem and therefore they are wasting their time. They also do not want the responsibility or the liability of dealing with such people. My rule is that the mental health doctor or counselor, has to be on board with an inquiry into any possible paranormal causes for a patients illness or symptoms. Nowadays there are some of these doctors, that will give that go ahead, when they have exhausted all other avenues of treatment. There is a fine line between the spiritual and the scientific. Emotional health and mental health go hand in hand.If a person is being terrorized emotionally they will start to show mental problems as a result.
Someone has to be willing to research this and look into it, as who knows how many people might be helped if someone would make the effort in this field. A man in St. Petersburg Florida was treated for schizophrenia for 16 years, because he heard voices. A friend who is also a clergyman came by to pray for the man and taped the prayers, so the man could replay them and recite them himself. Before leaving he played back the tape to make sure he had recorded the session. To his amazement there were other voices on that tape. There was profanity and other mocking by a deep voiced male . The clergyman brought this to me and asked what I thought. I then encouraged him to go with the man to his doctor and play the tape for him. Now if this clergyman had never gone there and never tried to help the man, he would have never known that these voices were real and that he was not crazy. The man is more than likely a spirit sensitive and has been all of his life. He was taken to the mental health doctors at a young age. Chances are that all the medications given him over the years which damaged other parts of his body and his brain as well, were not necessary. What he needed was spiritual help and counseling. When dealing with any problem "Knowing is half the battle," so at least you can try from there to obtain a solution. The problem is that at this point there is so much that we don't know with this subject.
True schizophrenia has also been linked to early trauma experienced by a person that resulted in a mental break of sorts. Being the victim of a hostile spirit is definitely traumatic. We do not know the full range of possibilities with this type of thing. Hopefully some day science and spirit will meet on equal terms to work together for answers. Until then i will continue to do research in this area.
