Bipolar Disorder – The Alternate Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC)

The best way to understand bipolar disorder is to understand Alternate currents (AC) and Direct currents (DC). For non-technical people, AC current is cyclic in nature which is being supplied in our homes. DC is a straight-line current which is used in batteries in toys/mobile phones. 

Emotions have motion and it is the language of the spirit. It travels through the body and its purpose is to experience the emotion and allow it to get grounded. The flow of emotions in the human body is a continuous process and it is based on our experiences. Each moment we live is an experience, thus bound to generate emotions. However, we are conditioned to suppress our emotions and our mind is trained not to pay attention to them. 

Emotions, which are denied expression get stored in the human body and make the body very stiff. Gradually, it becomes a storehouse of emotions like a battery. When that is not sustainable, the body begins to discharge and charge on its own. This process gives a very high amplitude of emotions for a few days or weeks and then creates equally deep depressive emotions for the next successive cycle of days or weeks.

Such peaks of highs and lows are so powerful that the patient is not able to contain them and thus exhibits bipolar tendencies. 

In our treatment, we work on balancing the male and female current which automatically regulates the flow of emotions. Like in Schizophrenia, after reversing the disorder, the real tough part is the rehabilitation program and the more chronic the disorder is, the longer it takes a patient to come back to the new reality and accept it.

Responses

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
