Mental Illness or Mental Wellness

Mental Illness or Mental Wellness: Notes from the Field

I recently received some Theta Healing from Miriam Amylah Blazova, and I have to tell you that I am quite impressed with the immediate results that I observed from this healing session. I highly recommend Miriam as a Theta Healer, and I definitely recommend Theta Healing as a gentle and effective way to deal with core issues or patterns that you may wish to resolve or change.

I have been struggling recently with the issue of setting healthy boundaries with people that I am close to. I have been really struggling with this for the past few years. It has been a recurring problem and I asked for assistance with this issue during my healing session. Soon after our session was complete, I began to feel things shift around inside of me and found myself processing some very profound thoughts and ideas. After that I had a huge “Aha!” moment, that I would like to share with you.

After my healing session, I began to think about something that I often do with other people in my life. When I have some sort of conflict with someone I go through a process where I think about my actions, I think about their actions and I break the situation down. I take what is mine and own it, and parcel out what I believe to be theirs. I haven’t had too many conflicts in my life, so when I do I often find the process to be quite devastating or traumatizing. I will often find myself retreating inwards and internalizing the whole process. One way that I cope with the situation is that I give the person a list of excuses to explain away their behaviour. I then find myself defining that person, quite simply, as being mentally unwell or mentally unstable. They get the “mental illness” label.

I started to think about what mental illness was, and I thought about all the people in my life that I have assigned this unfortunate label. The list was starting to look long. Mental illness was ranging from everything from being bipolar to depression, psychotic behaviour to strange habits. I decided to have a heart to heart with Archangel Metatron about this. I asked him if all the people I had listed were mentally ill, and he said yes. I then had this heart sinking feeling and I asked “Am I mentally ill?”. The answer was: Yes! I couldn’t believe it! I then asked: “Are all humans mentally ill?”. Metatron answered: Yes. He then said: “Mental suffering or mental illness is part of the human condition. No person is immune to mental illness. Every human being will experiences mental illness in their life.”

Having to be honest with myself and face my own mental illness, I came to the next part of my realization. All of these unhealthy patterns in my life are a direct result of my mental illness. For example, the reason why I allow people to be abusive towards me is that I have negative self-talk and I don’t know how to stand up to bullying. Instead of standing up for myself, I shut down. I then started to think: what does mental wellness look like? Mental wellness, for myself, would mean me learning to stand up for myself and not allow people to bully me. I will not allow them to say negative and hurtful things to me, and I will not allow other people push me around. Being able to establish clear boundaries with people is detrimental to my mental wellness. How else can I create a safe environment for myself? It seems clear to me that in order for me to create mental wellness in my life, I am going to have to say no to all of the things that bring mental illness into my life. I have to stand brave like a warrior and and firmly say yes to all the things that bring mental wellness into my life, while turning away all the thing that bring mental illness into my life.

Here is the other important thing that I learned in this whole process, and this was resonated by something that Miriam said to me during the healing: It’s not for me to decide what another person’s mental illness is. It’s time for me to mind my own business. When I go around labeling other people’s mental illness, I am enforcing my own mental illness. It’s the Law of Attraction. If I go around focusing on mental illness – my own and other people’s mental illness – then I am consistently bringing mental illness into my life. Do I want to keep bringing mental illness into my life? Hell no! I want to encourage and develop my mental wellness, and ultimately I want to encourage the well being in everyone else.

That’s it in a nutshell: Focus on mental wellness. Focus on mental wellness. Focus on mental wellness.

I am well. I am well. I am well.

This is the lense that I am now choosing to see my world through. I find myself asking now: Is this for my highest good? Is this good for me? Is this going to help with my mental wellness? If something I am doing is not in accordance with my well being, then I must stop it. If I am interacting with another human being and the things that they are saying or doing are not promoting my well being, then it is my job, it is my duty to myself, to remove myself from the situation. I think it is okay to ask someone to stop doing something that I find harmful to myself in any way, shape or form. If I do not feel comfortable asking them to stop, then it is my responsibility to remove myself from the situation. There is no reason that is a good enough reason to allow myself to be in situations that are not good for me.

I am not saying it is going to be easy. I am not saying that I won’t make mistakes along the way. I am not saying that this is what’s best for you, but  I am saying is that I think it will be worth it.

I am choosing mental wellness over mental illness.

Thank you for letting me share!

Many blessings to all of you ❤

Psychic Broken Telephone

Psychic Broken Telephone – Notes from the Frontlines

I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while now. I feel that perhaps if I were to share some of my own personal observations and experiences as a clairvoyant being, it would help assist other people along their own journey. Life has it’s trials and tribulations, and why not help each other out along the way. 

Over the past few years, I have been having more and more intense ethereal experiences in my life, and I find that I have become quite sensitive to other people’s energies. Someone once asked me if I knew what they were thinking, and thank goodness I do not have radar thought ears, because to be honest that would really really suck. I have absolutely no interest in knowing what other people are thinking. It’s bad enough that I can sometimes feel what other people are feeling, I don’t need a play by play on peoples thoughts. Also, it’s none of my business! 

Having said that, sometimes I find myself privy to other people’s “energies”, which I find has a direct correlation to their emotional body, and of course is also influenced by the mind. I think most people have this intuitive part of their nature developed. This is what some people might call their gut instinct on people, like when you really don’t like someone for no good reason, or when you just feel this sort of “vibe” coming from someone. Sometimes these energies or vibes become a sort of message to me. I don’t just feel that person’s energy, sometimes I get a small story that comes along with that energy. For example, I can be around someone and all of a sudden I might hear that they really miss someone, or I might just feel really intensely that they are really angry about something even though they are acting like things are ok….I’m going to be really honest here and say something about all of this. It’s none of my business! I strongly feel that even though I can hear or feel these stories about other people, unless they are telling me directly about it, it really isn’t any of my beeswax. I gracefully accept this information and then I do my best to let go and forget about it.

Why do I do this? The number one reason I do this is because I imagine myself in their shoes. Here is a total stranger or acquaintance who for some reason has been privy to something going on internally – I think it would be rather rude and assumptive of me to just say something to them about what I am hearing from the ethers. The exception of course is if someone asks me to do a reading or to assist them with some healing work. Then a space has been created between me and that person to facilitate a direct line for me to have a conversation with those internal messages that are so clearly trying to get out.

Here is where things get really interesting for me though. What about when people are having thoughts or feelings about me and I pick up on them psychically? What do I do then? This has been really tricky and sometimes problematic for me. The truth of the matter, to me, is that what they are thinking or feeling about me isn’t any of my business either! I’ll even go far as to say – it isn’t personal! Imagine if we were all held accountable for all of our thoughts and feelings? I try my best to be a mindful person, but let’s be honest here – we all think and feel all kinds of things throughout the day. Most of the time my thoughts are running wild like a crazy horse. If someone else somehow became privy to all of my thoughts and feelings, they would most likely become angry with me or hurt by what I was thinking or feeling. Things would get really messy, really fast. 

Here is the other thing that I have really come to terms with. We are all multidimensional beings who have many many different aspects to ourselves. It has come to my attention recently that in my dream time, for example, I have many different aspects of myself that are being lived out. I am Erin Klis here on 3D Earth, but I have many other parts of my being that don’t get expressed in this realm. These different aspects of myself are living in other dimensions simultaneously, and my dream time is a glimpse into these other aspects of myself. I have had people tell me that they have witnessed my spirit doing all kinds of things that I have no recollection of. If that person really believes what they saw or experienced, I believe them because it is most likely another aspect of myself that they witnessed. That is often what happens during a reading with someone, I become witness to an aspect of themselves that is not being expressed in this dimensional reality. So, if I have a dream about someone, or if I am payed a visit by them etherically/psychically, I gracefully take the information that is given to me, but I do not hold that person accountable. I have found that sometimes that person will absolutely not have any recollection of what I have experienced – and this is awkward- but often they find pertinent information in my recounting of a dream or experience.

This brings to mind something else that I have encountered: psychic attacks, remote viewing and unwanted telepathic interactions. There are people who will definitely, actively try to psychically attack or do other unsavoury things in the ethers. In the past I found myself at the receiving end of some unwanted psychic attention, and I can tell you that this happened because I didn’t have very good boundaries. I had left myself open to letting anything or anyone into my psychic sphere. This can be rather unpleasant and I highly do not recommend. I learned through trial and error to put up filters and protection

I think that this is what I am really trying to get at today. Having good, healthy boundaries. For me, this means minding my own business. Unless someone has asked for my psychic assistance, it is really not any of my business. 

Anyways, I am very interested to hear any feedback that any of you may have on this topic, so please leave comments! 

Much love,

Erin
