Begin with a dialogue between two psychological philosophers.
If categorizing and analyzing is a good direction for you then consider this as your path.
For beginning to understand that the best minds have still to answer the questions like who am I.
My path has led me past this mental state. The therapies I find useful are more self knowledge based more than a few experiential states.
Why are East and West Psychologies different? East is Physiology of Consciousness/energy frequencies. Eastern Psychology is Conscious in the Physiologic mirroring neurons. https://youtu.be/IogLabHdpro
Western is based on mental/emotional/physical/environmental patterns.
What are the differences? Is one better than another? Are levels of Consciousness the same in all humans/beings?

Now the next evolution is Consciousness Therapy.
Therapies are moving from focusing on cognitive brain functions in cognitive behavioral therapy > mindfulness MCBT > emotional mood regulation using Zen mindfulness combined with cognitive thinking in dialectical behavioral therapy. The next step is to be able to combine body/cognitive/mindfulness/emotional regulation/spirit(energy frequency prana)mirror neurons in therapy to experience levels of Pure Consciousness. Then Consciousness from within using

The Eastern traditions have for untold (underreported) millennia incorporated spiritual(energy practices which align the body/mind/spirit from an inner science. This includes mirroring neurons. The science of inner realization is a methodology which connects and unites the physical/cognitive/emotional/energetic/spiritual as parts or organic connections with the whole cosmos, including all its dimensions and levels, not only an individual cognitive functioning separate ego seeking happiness from something outside of itself.

Western Mental/behavioral health treatment began with Western European shamanism (actually nobody in the West really knows how long ago or where it began). https://chacruna.net/world-best-practices-integrating-ayahuasca/ Eastern spirit/mind/body science recorded history goes back 60,000 to 60 million years), vedas/agamas. https://youtu.be/7JRN-pwK4Bs
Western medical model including psychoanalysis grew to psychology and psychotherapy, and more recently to for example positive, Integrative Hypnotherapy, NLP, life coaching. However most focused on the cognitive mental functioning which regards symptoms from the brain as sufficient to create, conditions, disorders and diseases, maintain and direct healing/health. The medical model psycho pharmacological focus has been on chemically replacing in the central nervous system brain low levels of for example, serotonin and dopamine. However such medications have side effects, are not meant to be taken forever and are often dependent on lengthy trial and error.

Melatonin a growth hormone comes from the Pineal gland which in the West was considered a vestigial ocular gland and in the East is the Third Eye Ajna Chakra. Serotonin is produced in the nearby Pituitary gland.
There are many reasons to include body/mind/spirituality in dealing with any kind of concern in life. There is no reason to exclude it. Who might want Consciousness Therapy? There are many people who consider themselves to be not spiritual or religious but seeking inner peace (secular), spiritual but not religious or anti-religion. Many people consider themselves as atheist, nihilist, communist, capitalist or agnostic.
Spiritual and religious. I was agnostic for most of my life. *Rajiv Malhotra
Changing one’s energy frequency, my interpretation of spirituality does not require faith or a belief. It operates on each person’s experience, awareness, self knowledge, emotional response and evidence based holistic healing. Initially one may try different approaches before finding what works.

Many follow a traditional organized religion but are not satisfied with it or they would not have come to therapy in the first place. People come to look for practical solutions and rather than turning to chemicals (Licit or Illicit) in talking, analyzing, remembering, extensively about childhood. Learning is limited to manage/adjust/cope they often have no idea of what could heal but are frustrated at the lack of effective help, guidance, or progress in their lives.

All of the techniques which are included here in this book are if not in whole are at least partially applicable to anybody. It has been an approach that does start with the client including ongoing collaboration and intra-analysis of what patterns are obstacles to the client asking how to experience the source of where the person is coming from. That source is spiritual bliss or pure consciousness. Dhyan Turiya, Turiyatita. *Vedas/Agamas. *Kapila Karika

We are originally part of wholeness, live in the wholeness and return to wholeness. The feeling of being separate creates an obstacle to knowing what the origin, motivation, purpose in life is.
What is spiritual? To me source spiritual is a frequency of vibration which when combined with each person‘s own innate ability to heal them self creates a more rapid positive measurable outcome. It also allows each person to be liberated from the limiting patterns of the cognitive mind. The cognitive/emotional mind is linked to the 3D Reality. This 3D Reality has been structured in psychological terms as having three states of consciousness. These are Unconscious, Subconscious and Alert. intro to Completion Technique. what is Karma sattvic food
What is Liberation? Vedas Agamas
Freedom from inner conflicts, Self knowledge, a continuous bliss state of consciousness. Non-attachment and ability to be powerful to manifest whatever is the best possible outcome is Moksha Jivan Mukhti Liberation.
A. Roots and Lineage
The first spiritual guide is Shiva which represents the super consciousness, all dimensions and including what we call reality in the three dimensions of height, length and depth. Shiva is a word which indicates eternal consciousness principle. This is a Cosmic Principle. Lord Shiva and manifestation Parvati, the principle of cosmic existence are a unified whole. They are unified in oneness Advaitha* Lord Shiva performs Creation, Preservation, Destruction , Delusion and Liberation. The Western sky gods perform only the first three. YouTube’s and scripture references. A physical Avatar Lord Shiva lived 60,000 -1,000,000 years ago and there are countless facts and basic information to indicate this foundation. In books and scripture is written more and some books are suggested in the bibliography. Scientists are reporting that the Cosmos is an intelligent. Superconsciousness. Science has begun to research animals’ brains to explore about 11 dimensions of reality.
The lineage is Shaivite (from Shiva)
My lineage is now Shaivite. Being in the space of Advaitha requires initiation through look, sound/light or touch. The super conscious state which includes all 25 states of consciousness and 11 dimensions. The Earth and the Cosmos requires that we evolve in order to be aligned with Dharma. Dharma is Cosmic law. It is able to give us opportunities to live in jivan mukhti that is Living Enlightenment. Thank
The journey was not so direct for me and I did not find the answers to my questions until age 63, five years ago. I can see that all my life I have been seeking answers to the same questions people have been asking for millennia. Becoming and being a Social Worker with the focus on helping others, then learning from them about meditation and then discovering through yoga and Hypnotherapy what healing is, took 33 years. I credit being of service as the cause of my spiritual evolution. calculating that I provided 20,000 nurses aide hours, 28,000 encounter social work service hours, 4,000 hours practicing yoga asanas, whatever it took to receive a Masters of Social Work Degree, continuing education, trips to attend programs in India, untold devotional and musical endeavors ( I do credit 15 years classical music/voice training, semi-professional performance and founding a music non profit as helping develop my spirituality) and online training.
