Astral Entities & Spirits: Can They Make You Go Insane?

Why Would Someone Go Mad, Seemingly for No Reason?

Not simply because of an astral entity/earthbound spirit, that’s for sure.

No earthbound spirit has the power to transform you, as a healthy person (in mind and body), into an insane one.  Remember that astral entities (or ghosts) amplify and echo negative emotions that are already in you.  They do not cause them. An astral entity can’t tip you over the edge if you’re not already teetering over the edge, ready to fall off.

What Are Astral Entities Capable of?

Astral entities are like us, except they’re dead, and stuck.  They’re often vulnerable, unstable, scared and in pain for some reason.

In my opinion, people attribute a lot of things to astral entities and the spirit world, that they really shouldn’t. I used to do this myself.

About four years ago, I was living in Spain, and working at a language school. I was intensely lonely there, and isolated (I was the only teacher who was working there, as many students were away for the summer and only one teacher was needed.)

One weekend, I decided to have a change of scene and went to visit Pau, which is in South-West France. I stayed overnight in a hotel. The moment I walked into my hotel room that day, I felt a dark presence. I didn’t like my room and should have requested another one, but didn’t. That night, I was very, very frightened and I didn’t know why. I also felt dark, almost unstable, like I was scared of what I might do, even though I was definitely not suicidal. I remember speaking to my mother on the phone and not wanting her to go because I was scared. That night, I was woken up every half hour, feeling like I’d been knocked on the head.  In the morning I was exhausted, still scared and glad to be leaving.

At the time, I thought I had been disturbed by an astral entity/earthbound spirit and that it had made me feel bad, because in that room I felt terrible – very scared and almost out of control.

It’s easy to attribute a dark temporary feeling to an entity, but in retrospect I can see that it was much more complicated than that.

There may have been an astral entity in that hotel room, but the truth was – I was already feeling pretty bad.  I had just let it out on my weekend away, by speaking to my mum.  I was feeling lonely, in an unfamiliar place, and felt lost.  I hadn’t seen a single friend or family member for months.  I already was in a dark place and any astral entity that was present would have been amplifying that state somewhat.

If my mental state had taken a downward turn a couple of months later, it wouldn’t have been the astral entity’s fault, it would have been something within me that caused that mental state.

I believe our mental health suffers when there is a physiological and/or psychological/emotional problem, and that it’s not necessarily about astral entities or spiritual issues.

I have been reading a lot about nutrition in the last few months. In particular, I have read Donna Gates’ The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity and I’ve also read The Clear Skin Diet – both excellent books on lifestyle and nutrition.

The author of the first book (Gates) is a nutritional consultant and the second was written by a dermatologist.  I was fascinated to read in both books about the connection between the health of the gut and the health of the brain.  Both books mention that studies have proved this connection. And both books touched on this issue of the food we eat affecting our brains – healthy foods and friendly bacteria (probiotics) improving brain health, and unhealthy foods helping brain function to deteriorate. It’s important not to forget the physical aspect.

I believe that being isolated socially can also affect our mental health, as can being under intense pressure on a consistent basis or experiencing some kind of trauma that has not been healed.

My point is that an astral entity (even a not so nice one) cannot turn a healthy person into an unhealthy one. Nor can any other spiritual issue come out of the blue and debilitate an otherwise healthy person. If you believe this, then you are giving the spirit realm way too much credit.

However, the spiritual always reflects the physical, so if you have poor mental health, and a lot of negative emotions, astral entities/earthbound spirits may amplify that state for you.

If you focus on having emotional support in your life, being at peace, managing your stress levels, and taking care of your body (the usual stuff) then you are more likely to stay strong, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.

Even if you have an astral entity in your energy field, it won’t tip you over the edge because you won’t be teetering on the edge.

Modern anthropology rediscovers the ancient teaching about time-spirits

by Emil Páleš

It is a well known but unexplained fact of anthropology, that the growth of culture is not continuous, but occurs in waves. Great personalities, geniuses in every branch of art and science do not appear solitary, but in whole constellations, in groups. Let us recall the masters of classic music: Mozart, Paganini, Beethoven have been contemporaries. Or the great constellation of renaissance painters: Michelangelo, Leonardo, Tizian etc.

The  wave-like character of culture obviously can not be explained by genetics: since the same talents would have to be already in possession of the forefathers of these masters as well as their descendants. That is why the majority of anthropologists looks for the causes of such outbursts of creativeness in the sociological environment of the given culture.

The influence of environment is but excluded in cases, when great achievements in the same field have been made simultaneously in two or more different places on earth without being in contact. The best known example of such parallel event is the axial epoch of Karl Jaspers: between 600-300 B. C. the greatest religious founders and philosophers appeared at the same time in China, India, Persia, Israel and Greece: Lao´c, Kchung-fu´c, Buddha, Jina, Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Daniel, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle etc. They did not know about one another and yet taught the same main ideas! Since 150 years no scientist has been in grade to propose a plausible hypothesis, how this is possible.

A four-year research project of the Sophia foundation has been dedicated to the research of parallel and rhythmic phenomena in history. We found out, that since the stone age until now there can be ascertained dozens of such parallel phenomena or synchronicities in the history of art-styles, social forms or thought-movements, which can in no way be explained within the materialistic paradigm of science. Moreover, these synchronic waves of heightened creativeness in different fields of culture recur within certain rhythms and constitute a system.

The biggest surprise is, that this system, which can be ascertained empirically from history, has been already exactly known since millennia: it is based on 354 and 72-years rhythms, which have been known to the medieval as well as antique Europe and goes back as far as to the babylonian calendar used since the very beginning of history. A forgotten manuscript by an abbot, Johannes Trithemius, from 1508 speaks about seven archangels, who alternate every 354 years as spirits of time. Every 354 years one of them inspires the spiritual atmosphere of the world.

Indeed, the occurrence of the greatest physicians in history (like Hippokrates, Galenos, Avicenna, Charaka, Vagbhata etc.) falls together with the times of archangel Raphael, who was the traditional inspirer of medicine. The times of greatest achievement in mathematics fall into the time of archangel Zachariel, who according to tradition revealed arithmetics already to Abraham. The greatest world poets and musicians came under the patronage of Anael, the intelligence of Venus; and the greatest philosophers have been inspired by Michael, the archangel of clear thinking. Historians flourish in the Oriphiel-age and comics in the Gabriel-age – exactly as it should be expected according to their mythical attributes.

There have been attempts for falsification of this discovery. The opponents proposed – so as to avoid subjective selection of historical data – to compare it to some independent studies, which have been done several decades ago. Extensive studies on cultural dynamics have been done by two renowned scientists: american anthropologist Kroeber and Russian sociologist Sorokin. The curves of cultural growth given by them strongly confirmed our own results.

If we consider, that the discussed rhythm has been known already to the Sumerian priesthood at the very beginning of history, sooner than all these historical events took place – this knowledge about the rhythmic structure of time has not only a value of an supplementary ad hoc speculation, but the value of a prediction, which could be now – after 5000 years of history – verified!

The fact, that biggest cultural waves in history have been predicted, does not need to contradict human freedom, if we accept, that human spirits plan their incarnations in cooperation with great cosmic intelligences, who are inspiring whole cultural epochs, and that is why there is not a chaos but a system in history. Inevitable consequence of this is, that human being is not only a result of two factors – genetics and environment – but of three: genetics, environment and the spirit-self, which chooses its parents and environment, where it is going to be born. This is a serious and fundamental challenge to all contemporary scientific concepts of human being, of anthropology, sociology, psychology, biology and all materialistic science. What is their answer?
