Spiritual awakening

Alex Naylor

I have been ill three times now and on two of them I believed I was having a spiritual awakening but was told I had psychosis.

Work became very difficult and I lost my job. Being sectioned was awful. It was a real bad thing having liberty taken away and I refused medication.

I would like to stay at the Family Care Foundation (Familjevardsstiftelsen) in Sweden (have a look at their approach to mental illness – it is brilliant and it works) to recover without medication because recovery is quicker without medication. But it is extremely expensive unless you are Swedish. Eckhart Tolle’s and Eileen Caddy’s spiritual teachings help me.
