I’m a psychotherapist and can say for sure that stories heal you. They reach unconscious mindspaces and touch what needs to be released. It’s the pent-up stuff that makes us sick inside. And it’s releasing and working through the pent-up stuff that heals us.
That’s what therapy does. It touches and releases the pent-up stuff. Psychic jams are:
- Down-in-the-dumps attitudes.
- Edgy feelings that don’t go away.
- Black despair that sinks you down and low.
So, remember, if any of the above apply to you, you’re up against a bonafide psychological brick wall or crisis. It’s where you are in your life story, and your mission is to find a way through.
It’s the way it happens in life. You get so down and out that big dreams or nightmares overtake your sleep. They’re trying to get through to you, getting you to face what needs to be faced. Then, to survive and thrive, you’ve gotta change things up.
So, dreams and crises are metaphysical realities. I set them loose in metaphysical thrillers. They plunge headlong into the spiritual world. C.G. Jung, pioneer of the deep unconscious mind, wrote there is no healing of the mind without opening to spirit. Well, after forty years of practicing depth psychotherapy, I tell you the old wizard of Zurich was absolutely correct!
Opening to spirit comes by listening to dreams, intuitions, and uncanny happenings. It starts the healing process. We feel the pain that comes from a backlog of pent-up conflicts. Reading helps you feel what the characters feel. It ends up helping you feel what you need to feel. And trust me, if you’re drawn to a book, there’s something in it for you.
Metaphysical thrillers tap into the stuff of daily life. It’s popped out to dramatic proportions, so we get the point. Dreams, nightmares, and synchronous happenings do the same. The spirit world reaches into unconscious realms and touches what needs to be released.
Stories are therapeutic. Stories are healing. Stories reach into deep unconscious mindspaces and touch what needs to be released. That is a plenty good reason to pick up a book you’re drawn to and enter a world of conflict, pain, psychic jams, and supernatural realities. It’ll help you begin a personal healing process that has long been calling your name.
