Taking the Psychological Bypass
Could This Be Happening without Your Knowing It?
What is the Psychological Bypass?
Why can it slow down your personal growth and spiritual awakening? Additionally, how can you avoid it?
Maybe most interesting of all:
Why is it that psychotherapists… Yes, psychotherapists, good professionals… Especially psychologists who commonly use this phrase: “The Spiritual Bypass”…
Why is it that psychotherapists have encouraged countless people to take “The Psychological Bypass”? And yet, they’ve been blind to this unintended consequence of psychotherapy? (Also pop psychology.)
Evidently it takes the founder of a different field — Energy Spirituality — to discover this problem. To name it. Also, to help people overcome it.
The Psychological Bypass. What Is It?
Simply put, people with this problem move in and out of paying attention to reality.
In particular, countless times a day, they fancy life up.
Particularly if they’re not feeling happy! Supposedly, now it’s time to analyze.
Ironically, self-actualizing people are the ones who suffer here. Due to taking this bypass away from reality. Instead of just plain living, they analyze life psychologically.
Ironically, this doesn’t help them live well psychologically. Or humanly. Since self-analysis can keep a person from making contact with human reality.
Yet this mistake is quite common. Given certain kinds of self-help with a psychological spin.
For Example, Meet Joe. He Often Takes the Psychological Bypass
In order to understand humanly what’s involved, let’s consider the plight of hypothetical Joe. He cares a great deal about personal growth.
For a while he was in therapy. Now he’s among the millions of people who believe they can “Be my own therapist.”
As a result, Joe no longer lives his life. Not like a pitiful innocent. Not like an ignorant time-waster. No-no.
Instead Joe uses Psychological Encouragements to Bypass Reality. (In this follow-up blog post, you’ll see a short list of typical practices. Any of which can result in this particular bypass problem.)
For a Quick Overview
No longer does hardworking Joe do simple things:
- Such as merely doing his job while he’s at work.
- Or chit-chatting with a friend.
- Or doing his best to get along with his housemates.
That’s for ordinary people. Joe aims to be extraordinary.
How Can You Get of this Time-Wasting, Life-Wasting Psychological Bypass…
And Get Back to Living Productively?
What I offer isn’t the only way! But it just might do the trick for you.
- Read this how-to book on “The New Strong.”
- Or take the New Strong Online Workshops, starting with the Free Intro.
- You can definitely learn how to “Stop Fixing Yourself — And Actually Accelerate Your Personal Growth!” But don’t expect to learn from a short article at this blog.
Whichever you choose, take a few hours and learn properly. Because what I’m teaching isn’t difficult. However, it is new. And, unlike all the easy clichés from pop psychology (thoroughly lodged in Collective Consciousness, but that doesn’t necessarily make them helpful), Energy Spirituality discoveries are NEW.
New, and appropriate for helping you to thrive in the Age of Awakening.
However you travel through life, Psychological Bypassing is totally optional.
