I started this blog, Between Ghosts and God, as a response to my personal journey through self-transformation and personal understanding that had been discovered through the completion of my doctorate degree in clinical psychology. I have come to the conclusion that the key to psychological health is not obtained through the self, but rather through the removal of the self entirely and the integration of the human condition within traditional wisdom which was present when psychology was formed. Prior to the mechanization of psychology into a “scientific” discipline, this was the common approach to self understanding and transformation.
I have grown tired of hearing individuals in the self-help industry display absorption in their own self-worth spew an endless amount of regurgitated secrets to happiness and psychological well-being that have been regurgitated by regurgitation, as we blindly hide behind trendy, popular, and erroneous approaches to psychological well-being. Sadly there has been a movement that has progressed toward the elevation of the self and the ego, while the movement toward self-awareness, self-knowledge and acceptance have become extinct. I have learned through my own journey that there are no secrets, easy paths to follow, self-help books, or hidden wisdom that can be supply the answers needed for self-transformation or understanding. You must travel to the depths of your soul, through the uncomfortable acceptance of what you may find there, and to understand how the soul is related to the body, mind, spirit and absolute in order to achieve your optimal potential.
The human being is a complex and a convoluted web of interactions with multiple dimensions, and in order to “know thyself,” an individual must be shown the integration of human condition with a vertical understanding as every culture, tribe, religion and spiritual practice has afforded since the beginning of time. I present this system through my presentation of Vertical Transformations, and the goal of achieving full potential through the body all the to the Absolute.
