“Human”istic Psychology And Spiritual Psychology Are They Far Apart?

rp_5854234616_9eb56eac3d_m.jpgI always called myself an eclectic psychologist but I have now realized that I actually am a Humanistic Psychologist ala Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers. I feel that the person’s inner concept of who they are directs their life.
People are also looking for the answers to life. One of the areas that people are looking into is spiritual psychology. This has not been an area of psychology that has been studied. Many psychologists avoided working in this area based on the idea that you can not scientifically prove that things that are spiritual (like mental telepathy and prayer) actually work.
That is not true now. The scientific studies are now out there and even atheists can’t ignore them because of the scientific proof that now exists. Especially see the book, “Measuring the Immeasurable” by Sounds True publishers and Message From Water by Dr. Masaro Emoto’s The books cover his experiments on water crystals.
My study of the spiritual began when I met Dr. Elisabeth Kubler –Ross , a psychiatrist, who worked with terminally children and adults and who heard about many near death experiences from them.rp_3704705698_7d71898ce1_m.jpg Elisabeth was a very sincere woman and when she talked, it was a mesmerizing experience and the listener knew that she was telling the truth.

Elisabeth never made any money doing this. Her and her fellow leaders only collected enough fees to cover the expenses of meeting for several days in a “bare bones” retreat facility with room and board included. The only other expense was a participant‘s travel expenses to and from the retreat. The leaders volunteered their time. These workshops were often life changing experiences for the participants.
