An extension of the psychological. Transpersonal psychology emerged
as an area of focus in the last 25 yrs as an extension of psychological
studies into consciousness, spiritual growth, body-mind therapies and
personal transformation. The study and integration of the transpersonal
acknowledges that spiritual levels and awareness are essential levels
of development, and if nurtured and developed can transform an individuals
life leading to a deeper self-understanding, fulfillment, and greater
health of the body-mind. The transpersonal takes into account the whole
person; all aspects of the self. There is a connecting with the whole
person, and the whole of the person's life. A main thrust in the therapeutic
process is to bridge the various parts of self and establish a healthy
connection to these aspects inherent. Transpersonal therapy uses many
modalities and blends and bridges many disciplines and schools of thought.
The thrust and direction will depend upon the therapist and his
or her training, orientation, gifts and proclivity. Transpersonal therapy
engages the 'personal' of an individual and bridges as well as
integrates the levels and states of consciousness to create and
instill the awareness and utilization of the transpersonal. There is
a focus on self development and attention directed towards the
needs and the wants of the personal to foster growth, healing, awareness
and empowerment. This self development and growth naturally lends
itself to the bridging to the transpersonal. When one is truly empowered
one begins to seek and then see what is below the surface and perhaps
not readily seen. The question "There must be something more "
is answered for the individual in a framework that speaks to their life
focus and beliefs. In this way transpersonal therapy weaves through
the multitude of beliefs and seeks to affirm individuality and uniqueness;
yet confirm the unity of all life. We all come from and are made from
the same source. In this deep understanding, belief and feeling
of this awareness there is an immense level of healing, growth, inspiration,
upliftment, sense of universal solidarity and peace that is experienced.
connecting to the transpersonal the individual is connecting to their
higher expanded self and expanded states of awareness. There is the
recognition of a connection to the whole and something larger. This
something is The All That Is, God consciousness. The transpersonal is
not religious, but through religion one can have transpersonal experiences.
The transpersonal can be felt in a myriad of religions, belief systems,
rituals, esoteric philosophies, disciplines and activities. However,
to consistently be able to tap into this state at will or live in this
state is quite another situation, and is possible.
The transpersonal is ego inclusive. This is very important. The inclusion
of the ego means there is nothing to fix or get rid of in the psyche.
The key is to align the ego functioning to the blueprint and reign of
the higher self (soul self) The ego's needs and wants are taken into
account and harnessed for the benefit of the whole psyche. The desires
of the human ego mind are allowed to be defined and refined for
the growth, health and total wellness of the person. There are
processes that facilitate this process. In this way the ego is
seen as a functioning part of a being; however not the total part of
a being. I say being here, because an individual is looked upon as a
spirit with a soul contained within the very fabric of being a soul
purpose and an essential reason for being and living. So the fact
that one is born, alive here; that one exists or is "being"
here on this planet, at this exact time and place is not an accident
and has a purpose. I also say being and living, because one is
being just by being here. The next step is the living. The living is
up to you, and how you live your life. Your unfoldment is in your hands
and awareness. Your life and how you live it has a purpose whether you
are conscious of this or not.
conscious awareness and unfolding of this blueprint leads to your reason
for being and is seen as being integral to the universe, world,
society and universal/divine plan. In this way there are no mistakes,
just the possibility of the realization of ones wholeness and perfection.
With this self realization then comes the self actualizing of
this awareness of being into the world creating a sense of purpose and
deeper sense of peace and fulfillment in one' life.
