ConsciousIntegratedTherapy (CIT) a holistic integrative approach to improve conscious and reduce unconscious mental health.

Understand that the best minds in the West have still to answer the question- who am I.

Who am I. How can a person change something if they don’t know Who am I? Often people will not be able to get the most enjoyment from life and be conditioned to not expect long term bliss state higher consciousness. Associating with unreal identity produces symptoms such as confusion, procrastination, inner conflict, depression, anxiety, ptsd.

You are that not this.

The Upanishads have declared,

tat tvam asi

तत् त्वम असि

you are that, not this.

If you constantly keep this in mind, then you are already into the spiritual life.

What happens is that all of us play a role in this world, every one of us – Husband, wife, businessman, producer, actor, worker etc. To play the role is alright. You play a good role and then what happens? When you go home, are you still playing the role? Or have you wiped off your grease paint and you’re back to who you are.

Don’t forget that you are not what you are projecting. Because it’s a role, you can’t carry it into real life.

So, what is real?

The reality is that you are the self, the inner self.

I’m that which is an essence, a part of the all-pervading supreme reality. If this thought occurs, then you see the supreme being in every little leaf and grain of sand. It has to settle down, absorbed within, and then you see the inner and the outer as the same.

All other things are role-playing.

Role-playing is the root of all sorrow. Break this shape and you have reality.

My path has led me past this social conditioned mental state. The therapies I find useful are more self knowledge based with more than a few experiential states. Brenea Brown and Oprah break down three stages of healing.

But first-check your nutrition

How to cure yourself of illness

Why are East and West Psychologies different? East is Physiology of Consciousness/energy frequencies. Eastern Psychology is Conscious in the Physiologic mirroring neurons.

Western is 3D evidence based on mental/emotional/physical/environmental patterns. Brenea Brown has written books on research indicating most people have a spiritual knowledge/belief. She outlines three stages of self healing in or out of therapy.

What are the differences? Is one better than another? Are levels of Consciousness the same in all humans/beings?

How to succeed in real life by evolving

1. Introduction to ConsciousnessIntegratedTherapyCIT. Sometimes called Integral Therapy to liberate from Maya 3D Delusion to Space of Possibility.

As there are evolutionary Western CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy* MCBT.

DBT Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Now the next evolution is ConsciousIntegratedTherapy. CIT

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

Yoga

Principles Yamas and Niyamas Tattwas

Violence/non violence Ahimsa

Why is it so hard for humans to be either violent or nonviolent?

Throughout millions of years to now, we theorize that humans have evolved out of animals.

In order to survive some animals need to eat meat and others cannot eat meat. Are the obligate carnivores more violent?

Whether humans are omnivores or herbivores or carnivores is still up for debate. But if we are what we eat then if we eat meat we are eating the flesh of animals who have died in pain and left those pain chemicals in that meat at the time of their death.

https://jakartaveganguide.com/post/health-and-wellness/why-eating-meat-increases-your-stress-hormone-/227Legal definition of violencethe unlawful exercise of physical force or intimidation by the exhibition of such force.

We have legalized violence against animals.

Well the animals that do hunt to survive only use violence in order to get food, protect territory, for natural survival of the fit in their evolution.

Humans although not having to hunt to survive, are still afraid that they will not be able to survive or be fit without eating meat along with a variety of other foods. So humans who eat meat react more to the stress hormones which caused fear, fight or flight. With everything going on in the world it is easy to see why a principle of nonviolence also called Ahimsa, is difficult to follow in day-to-day life.

And why would a person want to be non-violent or violent? Which brings up the question is fear (the root of violence in fight or flight reaction) rational or irrational or both?

In the context of being a mental health provider it is the subject of fear and whether it is rational or irrational that comes up very often. What happens is a person talks about knowing that their fear is irrational and telling them self that hasn’t helped. Or perhaps it has helped for a number of years and no longer is possible. What is possible is non-violence out of discernment of whether fear is rational or irrational and to act or not act.

The ability to be conscious of triggers, and knowing how to not blow up, is a great gift for somebody. It can reduce violence by first creating a sense of safety.

Using the principle of Ahimsa provides a better chance to solve problems based on fact rather than on fear. That fear, the fear of dying, the fear of starvation, the fear of being alone, the fear of not being able to pay the bills, the fear of not having an education, the fear of not having a job that pays enough to support a family, the fear of having everything and still not being happy, all of those fears can be boils down to an existential fear. Humans are the only species with so many fears. If I cross the street without looking by denying that fear is real my life can end abruptly. There are many reasons in fact to be afraid. How to manage fear? Reduce eating meat.

Definition of courage

Merriam-Webster dictionary

“mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.”

It does take a willingness to develop tolerance for strong emotions. That can lead to courage and resilience.

Does this lead to ahimsa?

Or can a fighter in a war be non violent?

We can look at Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita who was a warrior against parts of his family. He was afraid to start fighting. He knew it was to survive but he questioned even his need to fight for survival. We can ask if Ukraine is being violent by defending itself. So is violence appropriate in survival cases? I would answer probably if it is to reduce future expansion of violence or war. These western cultures have been warlike and as we are what we eat then we can expect more war and environmental destruction.

In individual therapy there is a chance to reevaluate the need for animal protein in order to reduce stress hormones in humans. When there is a resolution of inner conflict then more rational attention can be focused on outer conflict.

Perhaps inner peace can be found in not craving.

Speaking truth to power satya

When I feel compelled to say the truth to power I usually do it one on one with a person in therapy. This doesn’t have to be so gloom and doom. It can be made a joke of in a lighthearted way no offense. Like maybe I just won’t give you the right answer this time. Well that’s why I pay you the big bucks! Ha ha! Well that is a good point and I’m glad that it wasn’t me who had to point it out. Power number one fear false evidence appearing as reality. In New York City there are so many different generations cultures life experiences. People who come from traditional cultures and are looking to better themselves often confuse the American dream with American reality. There is a great deal of oppression and repression in traditional cultures which creates an undercurrent of rebellion. There is a tendency towards independence in children of immigrants and in immigrants themselves. What I see is that the immigrant older generation first generation is still focused on survival skills and how to amass wealth in order to avoid some disastrous outcome. This trauma is passed along to their children, intergenerational trauma and creates lasting difficulties. However the difficulties are not impossible to overcome. Often it is engaging with the client in a sort of question and answer getting the client to really think about what they’re saying. Because a lot of times they don’t think that what they’re saying really matters. And what they’re saying is that they don’t really matter. This plays itself out in running towards relationships and marriages families and children based on avoidance of feeling outcast from your own people. So the trauma that the second generation heals appears to be more distant and not as profound as what their parents experience. And the exploration is about feelings. Identifying feelings, the meaning of those feelings, what other peoples feelings feel like and what they mean and how do others affect moving forward in your life. Just being able to know and identify the feelings helps to reduce the repression of shameful and guilty and untrue parts of the self. Those parts of the self that are in conflict with both the culture and the world in a sort of culture war. People often ask why is this happening to me? Over and over again you’ve been traumatized you’ve been brainwashed.

Binary thinking, black and white, yes no, true false, if then, live or die, pass or fail, compete, work hard, deserving and undeserving poor, English poor law, master slave, male female, all of these are out of fear. Because you never know what is there if you don’t experience it and take action to make it happen! Statistically things can go terribly worse than you thought equally as much as they can go extremely better than you could’ve ever imagined. So the odds don’t really seem totally against you. So if the odds are against you and you have a lot of fear and you don’t overcome your fear and try something something small to begin with you’ll never know that there are endless answers in real life. Those answers cannot be found in books or gurus or anything outside the self; this is the inner self. The inner self connects with everything else but there has to be a conscious inner self there to connect with everything else.

Asteya non stealing.

I add non greed. The craving, desire, unfillable unknowable emptiness that is a craving hungry ghost. Often seen as a reaction to early childhood trauma. That unknowing need to escape but from what? By early feminists the problem with no name. Since this message has no name people of course need to give it a name. When a person learns to live with uncertainty even in names, people, places and the knowledge that everything changes, there are more possibilities for breaking into that emptiness and finding that there is still flow. No longer is it necessary to grab everything and hold on too tight. Denser energy moves slower and more high frequence energy is more active. Mental energies are higher frequency. The three doshas or energies can be thought of as an explanation for balance as lifestyle. The concept of entities living in different levels of lokas or realities is well known. If a person is at a low frequency constantly angry not able to reduce inner conflict, not able to know fear from reality, those beings continue in their trajectory just as other beings who want to increase the level of their frequency are using the practices and principles of Ahimsa, Satya and Asteya.

Moderation Brahmacharia

means doing things in moderation. Means not to follow every desire and be impulsive, craving and out of control. When a person becomes less violent, more truthful, non-stealing, living in moderation seems to be a principal of balance in the flow of life. We can’t be balanced all the time. Everybody has extreme ups and downs during their life. I have seen when people are selfish and greedy that nobody is there to help them when they need it. They do not have balance and eventually the imbalance reaches a tipping point. As a therapist i see quite a few prople at this point. The encouraging thing is they recognize their lifestyle and thinking needs to change. This may take many years to play out so many people think that people who do not live in moderation are role models to emulate. (medical providers see some of the truth about the unhappiness so called successful people have). But over time(decades), just like the tortoise and the hare you see that when you use principles then your life gets easier. This is an example of Dharma the law of life. As above so below.

Generosity aparigraha

Yes not only do not steal but also be generous. I think everybody knows the value of generosity in principle. How many times a day are we generous and how many times not so much. We decide who is deserving. How do we decide? Out of obligation, to assuage guilty feelings, to pay it forward, out of gratitude? If it is a principle the question is how does this help. It is part of a flow of interdependence between all beings. Being in that flow keeps us relevant and connected to the wellbeing of others and our self development. Our self, in being generous feels it expands into the beings of the ones we are generous to. It can make us feel good. Without getting into this being selfish it is a way to humble us. We realize how meaningful generosity is. When people write gratitude lists to remind them of how generous life is they make a choice to expand their consciousness.

Breathwork

Samskara Dahana Kriya connect the dots. Verse 22. https://www.patheos.com/blogs/monkeymind/2017/10/pointers-inner-way-paul-reps-vijnana-bhairava-tantra.html

What is the mind/body connection and how to be authentic. What does saying no mean? When the body says no what would happen if we listened? It could be not that or not this but each of us can benefit by listening to our emotions.

The Eastern traditions have for untold (underreported) millennia incorporated energy practices which align the body/mind/spirit from an inner science based on experience. This includes mirroring neurons from one aligned consciousness to another. The consciousness science of inner self realization is a methodology which connects and unites the physical/cognitive/emotional/energetic connections with the whole cosmos, including and integrating all its dimensions and levels, not only an individual cognitive functioning separate ego seeking gratification identified as happiness from something outside of itself.

“Siddhartha” by Herman Hesse chronicles the experiences of a man who was born to be a priest. His refusal of any dogma and his journey is read in this audiobook.

What is Kundalini Shakti YouTubes.

Treatment thus is not only about either mental and/or emotional aspects but is inclusive of all aspects.

Four states of consciousness are sleep, dream, awake, higher consciousness in Eastern approaches.

Brain wave neuropsychiatry.

Neurologically there are different brain waves, measured with brain scan eeg. The qeeg measures higher gamma waves which are found in meditators and high bliss frequencies of over 300MH. Most tests on brain waves are eeg which excludes the gamma frequencies.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantitative_electroencephalography

The limiting of choices as in black/white, true/false, binary, yes/no, either/or is a product of lower frequency linear logic 3D thinking. We have height, width, depth but we have not learned to access more than a little of the few dimensions recognized as movement or stillness through time and space in the processes of therapy. That is because of the imbalance in flow.

How to begin meditating

Western Mental/behavioral health treatment began with Western European shamanism (actually nobody in the West really knows how long ago or where it began). Usually western education does not go earlier than Egyptian/Grecian/Sumerian. There is much evidence to prove history much earlier.

Eastern spirit/mind/body science recorded history goes back 60,000 to 60 million years), according to vedas/agamas.

Western medical model including psychoanalysis grew to psychology and psychotherapy, and then to for example, psychoanalysis, Positive Psychology, Integrative, Hypnotherapy, NLP, life coaching. However, due to increased use of psychotropic medication, most focused on the cognitive mental functioning which regards symptoms caused by serotonin and dopamine imbalance from the brain as causes 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. The serotonin and dopamine are actually produced in the pituitary, hypothalamus, intestinal and endocrine system. However such medications have side effects, temporarily mask symptoms, are not meant to be taken forever, can be addicting and are often dependent on lengthy trial and error. Science is now looking to nutrition, stress, environment, to find causes of these chemical balances. Recently Functional medicine has found the causes of problems to be from a wide range which western medicine excludes. For example lab tests do not test tissue and test blood.

The East has always included a holistic approach. it works with balancing and expanding the innate strength rather than finding a localized deficit and adding chemicals.

There are many reasons to include body/mind/energy frequency work in dealing with any kind of concern in life. There is no reason to exclude it.

Who might want ConsciousIntegratedTherapy? CIT 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.

In one’s energy frequency, 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. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi TM

Sri Aurobindo and Mother Integral Therapy.

Ramana Maharishi compare to Carl Jung.

Vivekananda and Paramahamsa Yogananda as Eastern and Western.

Panchag Naram Ayurveda, Nalanda Institute.

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 and transform but are frustrated at the lack of effective help, guidance, or progress in their lives.

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.

We are originally and holistically part of wholeness, live in the wholeness and return to wholeness. The feeling of being separate creates an obstacle to the self knowing what the origin, motivation, purpose in life is.

What is spiritual? To me source spiritual is a frequency of vibration in flow, 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/gamma wave. Non-attachment and ability to be powerful to manifest whatever is the best possible outcome is Moksha Jivan Mukhti Liberation.

A guided meditation

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zsdgz5zhaq0q5d4/Guided%20meditation%20for%20anxiety%20and%20depression%20.mp4?dl=0

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 as Consciousness Intelligent Cosmos- performs Creation, Preservation, Destruction , Delusion and Liberation. The Higher Consciousness produces a vibration which produces space which produces waves of energy which produce 11 dimensions. The dimensions are

Shakti, the dimension of creation; Bindu creative focus; Bindukala Space/time; Shabda, a Sound; Nada continuing Sound, Nadakala, Intelligence of Sound in Space/time/motion; time produces length; space produces height/width and when depth is produced then matter which can be perceived by human measurement is made. Human measurement includes wave/particle energy. But because it is not perceived with 5 senses it is just beginning to be commonly used. The East has since it began having advanced human receivers who were evolved to transmit energies and eventually write about them have left vast resources which are available to those whom seek.

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.

The journey was not so direct for me and I did not find the answers to my questions until age 63, eight 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.
