Depth Psychotherapy Devoted To Emotional and Spiritual Healing

My holistic depth psychotherapy practice, based in Albuquerque New Mexico, is devoted to personal and relational healing and growth through therapeutic emotional understanding and dream work. We engage in depth psychotherapy for painful emotions, conflicted relationships, and troubling dreams. Deep-seated wounds can appear immovable, resulting in ongoing unhappiness and a feeling of being stuck and going nowhere in life. As a depth psychologist for over thirty years, I have been helping people work through and resolve emotional and relational problems so as to potentially achieve a more optimal life and lifestyle. We work together on an open-ended basis for as long as depth therapy is healing, helpful, and meaningful. Professional Associations: Depth Psychology Alliance, International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, International Association for Jungian Studies.

 

Awareness And The Evil Eye

There are major haters in life. And, they will get to you and drag you down if you let them. The problem is, we often close our eyes, dim consciousness, regarding the reality of haters and the phenomenon of the evil eye. Then, we're vulnerable, the psychic immune system having been compromised.

 Melanie Klein, grand dame of psychoanalysis, explored the violence associated with envy. Jealousy desires what the other has; envy not only desires what the others has but seeks to taint or destroy it for the other. That's the phenomenon of the evil eye--envy seeking to appropriate then destroy the good that another has.

The evil eye, envy and its destructiveness, is a potent psychic force that dates back to ancient times, It is a nefarious aspect of human relating and interacting. Awareness of the reality of the evil eye strengthens the psychic immune system.  Psychic immunity generated through awareness acts as a spiritual prophylactic much as ancients from Egyptians to Native Americans believed in the use of amulets for protection.

Awareness, therefore, acts as an everyday spiritual ritual. It can protect against the influence of the evil eye. We are reminded that people are largely mixed bags, a confluence of positive and negative emotions and energies. In the spirit of healers from shamans to the ancient Greeks to Melanie Klein and Carl Jung, we can have insight, raise consciousness. Envy, the evil eye, can and does happen. There are haters in life and they can direct hate our way. When it comes, its best to see it coming and enter into the daily spiritual ritual of awareness.
