The 4 Main Causes of Spiritual Illness According to Shamanism
When you look at things from a shamanic point of view, most of these illnesses become quite clear. All illnesses can be found within the imaginal realms. Suppressing these things will not be enough to cure them. For true healing to happen you will have to get to the root of things and find the cause.
Below you will find a list of the 4 main causes of spiritual illness, according to shamanism. Spiritual illness can present itself as a physical illness depending on the depth. We all must be more aware of our spiritual health if we wish to remain physically healthy.
If someone is walking around, going through the motions of life with a sense of fear eating away at their very being, they will become vulnerable to illness. Anxiety causes illness in the body. Fear actually produces our second cause, disharmony.
This is what we go through when life suddenly loses its meaning. I have found it happens most often when we lose someone or something important to us. You see, a state of disharmony will cause your personal power to diminish.
If you are being neglected or neglecting yourself you are not getting what you need in life. This will cause your body to send out warning signs, and if you ignore them you could potentially become very ill. When you need to be nurtured, find a way.
4. Soul Loss
Yes, I said soul loss. This is one of the most serious things you may ever have to deal with. This is what happens when you completely lose the will to live. This can come about for a number of reasons, but it is always a dreadful experience.
If you think you may be experiencing soul loss you may want to look for the following signs:
Not being able to remember things
Lack of initiative
Lack of joy
Inability to make decisions
When you recognize what you are going through as soul loss you will need to take as many steps as possible to save yourself.
