The psychic plague is a mental autoimmune disease.
With autoimmune diseases, your body turns on itself. The body uses its biological defense arsenal to destroy its own tissue, resulting in terrifying conditions such as multiple sclerosis, pulmonary fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis and others.
When your mind succumbs to the psychic plague, your mental resources turn on you and attempt to destroy your psychological identity. In essence, the mind – your most valuable psychological resource – becomes your enemy and slowly destroys your sense of who you are and what is really important to you.
This leads directly to not caring about yourself, others, the environment or what is happening in the world around you. It actually kills people – a lot of people.
At the heart of the psychic plague is an insidious inner negativity; a consistent, conscious or unconscious self-loathing that manifests in a sometimes loud, sometimes very subtle inner voice that drives you mad.
Most people experience their inner negativity passively. In other words, they react as if it were some outside force that is imposing its tyrannical will. This isn’t the case. Your inner negativity is YOU. However, it is a part of you that has been exposed to the psychic plague and needs to heal.
You are the one that needs to heal your exposure. It will never stop on its own. As long as you remain passive, it will oppress you. And it gets worse over time. The psychic plague is a progressive disease, like all autoimmune diseases.
Try this – for one full day, write down every negative feeling or self-criticism you experience. This will give you a snapshot of how the psychic plague is affecting you.
Giving up control, depriving yourself, living in a state of failure and rejection
Because of inner passivity – the helplessness we tend to feel at the mercy of the psychic plague – we are vulnerable to a host of other mental issues. We turn our power over to others who supposedly have answers. We deprive ourselves of love, connection and comfort, thinking we don’t deserve it. We set ourselves up for failure and rejection again and again.
Here are 10 other symptoms of the psychic plague:
1. Worrying or obsessing about things that you cannot control, creating chronic, unnecessary stress
2. Attracting negative people into your life, even when you know they will hurt you
3. Craving large amounts of substances or activities that harm you: food, drugs, gambling, etc…
4. Abandoning healthy goals for no apparent reason, especially after making initial progress
5. Ending healthy relationships just when they start to go well
6. Seeking approval from people who will never approve of you, living in a state of rejection
7. Considering yourself worthless unless you achieve perfection, which never happens (a common set up for feeling like a failure and giving up on yourself)
8. Always waiting for the other shoe to drop, not believing happiness can last
9. Feeling overwhelmed or helpless to take care of yourself as an adult make progress in life
10. Feeling trapped, as if your options in life are limited
Under the influence of the psychic plague, people often feel hopeless and just give up. You feel powerless to change and live a fully positive life, so who cares if you smoke, drink, gamble, financially sabotage yourself, ruin relationships and live an apathetic existence?
We’re all screwed! This is the psychic plague talking. It is taking us down a very dangerous road. We are going right along because we respond to this inner demon passively.
When you feel powerless to change what is going on inside you, you don’t care much about what is going on outside you! This puts all of humanity in a dangerous place. We’re vulnerable because we have not learned how to handle our own minds turning on us.
This condition affects us all to one degree or another.
If there is one thing in life to deal with, this is it!
You must educate yourself. The right education is the soap that kills the germs of the psychic plague. Much of modern psychology is lukewarm water. You need hot water and soap to kill germs.
There is no other way and no one can do this for you. You need to learn how and why your mind turns on itself. You need to understand the deeper psychological attachments in play so you can let them go, for good.
Why does your mind seem bent on criticizing you? Why do you make choices that take you in the wrong direction? Why would you ever work against yourself?
