When I am in the spiritual desert it is a dark, lonely and unforgiving place. It’s as if all the vast emptiness of space resides in this place. I have found myself in this empty wasteland many times in my life so I am familiar with it’s setting. I both fear it and dislike it. It fills me with dread, a kind of soul-foreboding and a sense of inner isolation, cut off at a soul-level from the universe and any higher power that governs it. In this place the darkness looms, the ground is hard and God is nowhere to be found. It’s like the universe has given me the naughty step. Continue reading “The Spiritual Desert”
No one likes to admit they suffer from self pity, least of all myself. When under attack from this dark attitude we tend to dress it up as something greater making ourselves out to be helpless and poor victims of life, abandoned by God and rejected by the world.
If you are one of the many unfortunate ones who have suffered some form of dysfunction, abuse or trauma when growing up due to parents, guardians, circumstances or surroundings then this page may be of interest to you.
There is absolutely no doubt that a negative childhood can impact on the feeling ‘something is missing’ or a ‘hole in the soul’ feeling. Continue reading “Dysfunctional Childhood”
Doctors might diagnose a spiritual void and its symptoms as a form of depression or borderline mental illness, writing out prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-psychotics and sleeping pills. Medical practitioners do their best to tackle the symptoms and eventually may write you off as one of the defective human beings in life who don’t quite make the grade.

When the soul is weak through lack of nourishment the body and mind become affected and start to sicken themselves displaying very unpleasant symptoms. The mind slowly decays into insanity and starts to turn on its owner. Its negativity is lethal and can lead some people into taking their lives. Schizophrenic and psychotic mental symptoms begin to manifest and the mind splits fighting with itself. Continue reading “Mental Illness”
The ‘Punishing Mind’, termed in one therapy model the ‘Pig Parent’, is a forever critical and punishing mental state that affects one from the moment of waking to sleep. In this mentally ill state the mind turns on the person in a very similar way to when the physical body undergoes starvation; the physiological and emotional effects are extreme and dark. Physical starvation affects the mind’s ability to work healthily and the same occurs when the spirit is undernourished. Continue reading “Mind Decay”
One of the more painful symptoms of a hole in the soul is that of the dark mind. When we awake our minds kick in and flood us with waking thoughts about our past, present and immediate future. Some people’s minds work for them and create healthy ideas, solutions and positive outlooks. If you suffer from an undernourished or starving spirit, however, you will experience only the horrors of a dark mind. On awakening your dark mind presents you with past failures, mistakes and negative experiences. Continue reading “The Dark Mind”
The problem with a hole in the soul is NOT mind based – the issue is the ‘hole in your soul’ – the malnourished spirit – that’s the real problem. Once this is fixed the mind falls inline and improves as a result all by itself.
- How many attempts have you made with conventional self-improvements methods to remedy how you feel inside?
- Have they ever really solved your problem?
- Have you grown tired with a lifetime of running from yourself down the glitzy avenues of the physical world?
Many people become frightened, mystified, confused and even angry when words like soul, spirit, God, Buddha, Higher Power and other spiritual names/terms are used in a conversation. Others have no feeling whatsoever. These names, or words, have been bandied about for centuries and because of their association with certain organisations and practices they have gained a discernible negativity. Mankind has tried since its beginning to ‘materialise’ the spirit of the universe by stating its essence, capturing it’s form and packaging it for the masses. Continue reading “Forced Isolation”
If, as I once was, you are feeling like a husk of a person simply trudging through life with an empty hole the size of a canyon in the centre of your being, a place where you are sure something good should be but is not. Then there is hope for you. Indeed there is a life beyond your wildest dreams simply waiting for you to claim it. You are not alone, millions of people feel the same and millions of people have broken free from this dis-ease of self. Continue reading “Symptoms & Diagnosis”
