I had a spiritual kundalini awakening and it was misinterpreted as schizophrenia. Psychiatrists need better knowledge and understanding of transpersonal issues facing consumers if they want to be taken seriously. The is much to explore, instead of hindering people in their spiritual development with drugs, they can work along side them to get to the core issues. Too often a diagnosis is based on OPINION rather than truth and the client may not have the neccessary framework, knowledge and ideas to express themselves fully because these ideas are esoteric. A ladder can be made with words and feeling to help lift people out of psychosis, this along with shamanic practices can access those parts of the brain which are not often used in this culture. With this knowledge, patients can heal without meds.
