  • I assure you that Spiritual Psychology is not the psychoanalysis where you label something and pretend you understand it. Instead, Spiritual Psychology is all about direct experience, healing, and reaching higher levels of Love, Peace, Freedom, and so on. I have been an engineer for 6 years, and now have a Masters in Spiritual Psychology. My engineering degree helps me create solutions to physical challenges, where Spiritual Psychology helps me address psychological challenges.

  • I love this program, I think is very inspirational, full of truth, it makes me laugh a lot to the point i don´t want to stop watching it but I have to go to sleep. It brings me awareness and detachment. I love it.

  • Yes Iman...the more you resist something the strong it gets. What you displayed beautifully in this episode was the courage to actually open to experience all your feelings. In this way things let go on their own. Avoidance doesn`t work. Everything comes up to be met with love...and it the love that heals...not time.

  • I hope that helps...and you can use it to re-pattern a new way of being ;) It`s my intention to share more about this on the Inent Blog and my you tube channel within the next 2 weeks. With love, Alyssa

  • It can definitely be a process of undoing some of these conditioned ways of being. My experience is that everything in us, even the inner critic, is trying to serve us in some way. It just thinks by being hard on us, it will get us to change. This isn`t bad, it just not actually effective, otherwise it would have worked. No need to judge the critic, which is another layer of criticism. Just compassionately notice it`s doing it`s best to get you to change, thank it and let it go.

  • Why is there music playing in the background (the thirty days of intent). It makes it very difficult to hear and totally appreciated what is being communicated.

  • Feeling so connected with everyone, the inner journey. This battle in the brain, that can be stubborn and heart that cares, forgives, loves, is loved. Wounds and all.

  • Thank you Natalie and Iman for experiencing this for us all. It`s counterintuitive to turn towards the difficulty and feel your way through it. May this glimpse help us all to take the time and care in understanding ourselves better.

  • Perspective is everything, so I see my laziness as the dark edge of my innately contemplative nature. I remind myself to do right for me by keeping at my work, returning my attention to the lesson just as we do to the mantra in meditation, and forgiving myself the best I can each time I get distracted.

    Pamela Sue // 2012-12-02 01:52:51 // //
  • The part of myself that is more difucult for me to control and make it right is "my mind" and is really hard for me to think good things. I am practicing the good way thinking and is very slow and hard to change my ways, but I getting good things in return, like peace and blessings. God bless you all.

A long story on this ... what a Jewsih chitopractor did to me in NJ and TV here just poped ... Is that a Ghost ? what I deal with here ... I will take Italian ... Thank you Deepak ... Love you ... Times of India here also just posted before you posted here ... Now is this crazy or what ... Maddie here in Fla comes on posting pool .. Now a woman in chicago just drove her car into a pool ...

  • Notice every thought you have not just when you feel you are hard on yourself but every single thought every minute every hour every day. Notice how you `talk` to yourself all the time. Then move your attention toward the moments you don`t talk to yourself, the space in between the thoughts. Notice how the more you do this the space becomes longer. Little by little this is the start to freedom :-)

  • Dear Iman, thank you for your courage and dignity. You exposed the depth of your pain in a public forum. No easy task. It was deeply touching for us (my husband, siblings and children, all gigantic Alphacat fans) to watch you express raw emotion. We salute you + wish you well. Emotional understanding precipitates growth. Iman, as your heart heals, you WILL love again, Please do not blame yourself for anything. 2 adults were involved in the relationship. Your heart is precious and it will heal

  • All problems are only as real as we make them. From a higher perspective, there are no problems, but opportunities for healing and upliftment. For example, you perceive another`s self-judgment around her performance as a soccer player as a problem, and I see her courage to face her judgments with the intention of healing. Is there perhaps a way in which you judge your own upsets as wrong because they are not triggered by "real" problems? You have my support in your own process.

  • There are many ways to go about this. Here is one outline that I like, as a dialog between the client (CL: that disturbed aspect of yourself) and inner counselor (IC, the unconditionally loving Authentic self). IC: invites the disturbed part to voice itself, asking questions along the way to fully understand, prizing it for its courage to express CL: fully expresses AS THE DISTURBED ASPECT, not talking about it IC: How are you serving me? What are you doing for me? CL: answers (explore new role)

  • I struggled with shyness a great deal myself. I found that a great way to get over any fear is by doing that which you are afraid of while being fully afraid to do it. The fear dissolved more and more the more I did this. You could also try this two chairs exercise that Alyssa does, which can be Godly powerful. Give your nervousness a voice, and then sit in the other chair and speak from your Authentic self (the unconditionally Loving, Peaceful, Wise self).

  • I would rephrase that to say, "I don`t know if it ever goes away." It is important to be open to the possibility of full healing. We create our world with out words. I, for one, have experienced full healing after the most painful experience of my life--a breakup. I assure you, you can do it too. My healing occurred in large part due to my Masters program in Spiritual Psychology, the same program that Alyssa graduated from.

  • This really had an impact on me. My experiences so far in life are similar to natalie so am loving seeing her journey as it mirrors my own. Profoundly moving and inspiring.

  • A very moving youtube video! I truly feel for these two individuals, but I am certain that their lives are in a path of learning and growing. I enjoy watching the series very much and only wish that we all had access to such great healers. To Alyssa, you seem so calm and sweet - there is something very special about your approach and your disposition.

  • We definitely understand what you`re talking about! Self-judgement and criticism can be so tough to shake. Check out the blog we published yesterday on self-love - the link is included in the video description. Hope that helps!

  • All I was trying to point out was that she has a perfect record of completing her goals, until that final step. Instead of focusing on the one loss, direct your attention to the multitude of wins that came before. I do see how a single failure after a long streak of success can defeat some mentally. It happens with boxers and MMA fighters. Training of the mind must be done along with training of the body. To set a goal so high, and almost reaching it is not a failure, but a WIN in my eyes.

    // 2012-11-09 13:25:22 // //
  • I find that I am harder on myself than I am on others...I make excuses and see reasons why people behave the way they do but when I make a mistake I am the first to tell myself how much of an idiot I am...and if I hurt others (especially my husband or family) in the process it makes it a million times worse. What can I do that will make me be less hard on me?...if that makes any sense. Thank you for this inspiration to be better =)

    // 2012-11-09 06:31:59 // //
  • There was muuuuuuch much more to these sessions, but what I took away (and forgive me Alyssa if I have it wrong)...what I took away was TRYING to pull away from hurt can do more harm than good cause in the process of TRYING to pull away we actually put MORE attention on it. A scab is the bodys way of trying to heal....but picking at it will cause more scarring. It might be UGLY that scab, but TRUST it WILL fall off on it`s own.

  • I think the two-chair exercise helps people see themselves more objectively (and with guidance, less judgmentally). . But I do have a question: Was Alyssa`s main guidance in this video to non-judgmentally accept those parts of our personalities or characters that have been causing problems in our lives? And if more complete self-acceptance is the message, what`s the next step? --such as how to supersede or transcend those problem-causing characteristics.

    // 2012-11-09 04:28:48 // //
  • I agree with Rachel Wolfe`s comment: we should have more compassion for Iman & Natalie. They`ve shown the ultimate vulnerability in baring some of their innermost struggles. . What`s easy for someone commenting on a YouTube video, may be a brick wall for Iman or Natalie. And something that`s hard for us may be easy for them. So telling someone to `buck up` doesn`t help her self image or self-acceptance--a very "real" problem for anyone, regardless of how fortunate she might be otherewise. .

    // 2012-11-09 04:13:18 // //
  • @SlimReaksHavok Suffering is universal. You can`t compare it since suffering is universal. That saif, you`re right. She should buck up. I`d maybe recommend to her to stop focusing so much on herself and volunteer at a soup kitchen.

  • I still don`t get how you legitimately combine psychology and spirtualism. That`s an oximoron. Science and mysticism are not good bedfellows, and psychology has only started to be accepted in recent times. This almost feels like a step backwards towards Freudism.

    // 2012-11-09 03:21:07 // //
  • I have the sincerest wish the people that leave these comments build more compassion for these people that are so brave to go before the camera to show us the work we all have. We are all here for learning and growth, expansion and raising our vibration

  • The soccer player has accomplished more than most, yet she feels inadequate? Come on chick. There are so many out there that have real problems, while you are troubled for not becoming the super best. Buck up babe.

  • Iman is getting his.

    // 2012-11-09 02:04:01 // //
  • On the last part, I commented the Iman seems to open up more and receive more from the sessions, but Iman is used to having the camera in his face. That may be what is blocking the soccer player. Its one thing to be on a team and another thing to have the camera right in your face as you are trying to have a spiritual awakening.
