Root Cause of Bipolar a Manic Depressive Illness

The Root Cause of Bipolar Is The Inability to Find Balance

Bipolar disorder, otherwise known as manic depressive illness, is more common than you may think, for instance, would you believe that 1 in 50 people suffer from a Bipolar disorder in the UK?

In my last blog I wrote about the cause of hypo and hyperthyroidism, and on the surface, these conditions seem completely different diseases to bipolar disorder, however, when I look at these two conditions from an energetic perspective they portray very similar patterns of disturbance. In this article I explain in more detail about the energetic cause behind Bipolar disorder and how you may recognise the pattern.

Bipolar Disorder Is a Person Experiencing Extremes

Energetically bipolar or manic depression means that a person experiences extreme feelings so on one end of the scale being upbeat, feeling agitated and high in energy, almost manic, where the mind races and the body is full of energy and pumping  adrenalin. It may feel like you are invincible. 

This Aspect of Bipolar Leads To A Hyper State

A hyper state is where a person will rush to get things done, or be manically thinking about new ideas.  The mind and body is literally in overdrive of activity.  The energy of this person is pouring outwards into the world and can make a person feel powerful. 

There is no boundary on how much energy is released and the world seems bright and happy. A person with balanced energy, will naturally pause to recharge and rejuvenate, however, a bipolar energy will simply burn out, this burnout phase then leads to a depressed state. 

This Aspect of Bipolar Leads To A Depressed State

Feeling burned out from giving out too much energy and manically being active, then leads to a depressed state, resulting in lethargy, thinking negatively believing that the world is against you and becoming morose. Nothing can lift you out of the gloom, the world looks grey and unhelpful.  

Feeling powerless, anxious, wanting to hide away, pushing away those that love you and not being able to see the light because the energy has simply crashed and retracted inwards.  There is no spark, no vitality and this can be very scary and fear is clearly evident.

A Sense of Balance is Non-Existent

Bipolar means that a person’s ability to find a point of balance is non-existent.  The swing of energy is too extreme with an inability to stabilise within a neutral place or point of balance.  

The challenge energetically for me when treating bipolar disorder is to assist a person to experience a sense of balance again. A person suffering with bipolar will not know how it is to feel a sense of balance, feel relaxed and at ease.  They have lost that ability to do this for themselves.  In fact, this can apply to anyone experiencing extremes of stress and pressure.  The inability to know what it feels like to feel relaxed has disappeared from consciousness.


Anxiety and Trauma is Often a Starting Point

Anxiety and/or trauma is very often the starting point for developing more chronic disorders, like depression and bipolar disorder.  Anxiety, stress, and pressure is a hyper alert state of living.  The mind is focussed on the future, constantly thinking about what is next, questioning and over analysing all the time.  Thinking about all different possibilities of outcomes of things that are in the future.  This kind of thought activity leads to an underlying fear of the potential outcome of any given situation.

Please remember, that not everyone develops bipolar disorder from anxiety or trauma.  People manifest the physical aspects of mental and emotional disturbances in different ways.  It depends on your particular disposition and hereditary patterns of energy. 

Often the Mind Goes to the Worst-Case Scenario

Negative spiralling thought processes become the norm.  When you have experienced something in your life that has made you feel deeply unsafe the mind will try and protect you from future unsafe situations.  Thinking about all the possible ways to control a future situation, so that you feel somewhat in control.

Now this can work for people who are in control of their mind and need it to strategize, it can be a positive coping mechanism.  However, with an energetic mental and emotional disturbance such as Bipolar, this becomes all consuming and is detrimental to a persons health.

How you think affects how you feel and react emotionally, so, this kind of anxious thinking into the future is very unhealthy.  A person who suffers with bipolar disorder finds it hard to control the emotions that are being created from the negative thinking.

Underlying Negative Feelings Breed Toxic and Potent Emotions Such as Anger, Rage and Frustration.

Toxic and potent emotions get suppressed as you don’t know how to deal with them.  As you are imagining a potential situation that has not yet happened, emotions get wrapped up in everything else that is going on in your life.  Deep inside your emotions are a mess and you depress them, not knowing how to cope with them. 

Suppressed Anger and Rage can Prevent You finding your Balance

Anger and rage are extremely potent and toxic emotions when left unexpressed.  Bipolar is a matter of extremes, it is often the case when delving deeper into a persons background that they have a lot of suppressed anger and sometimes rage.  This would make sense as people who suffer with this condition are often very ‘nice’ and may have found it hard to express their feelings or their ‘voice’ has been suppressed.

‘Nice’ people have an underlying fear of their fiery energy and will bottle up these more negative feelings rather than express them.  When a person gets in touch with this suppressed fiery energy a sense of balance can be found.  No longer are these negative feelings festering away, but a sense of peace can prevail when you know how to release your fire energy safely.

I  help people release this underlying fiery energy safely and find a sense of balance.  Polarity Therapy is a hands on therapy and great for bipolar disorder as it can give you the experience of relaxation.  However, if you are unable to see me in person, I also help people through distant energy healing, which I do by using affirmations that release these deeper toxic emotions, so you can find balance.

Bipolar Disorder Means that you don’t Really Trust in Your Deepest Self

Bipolar disorder means that you are filled with an underlying fear that you don’t really trust in your deepest self and the world is not safe.  You may be convinced that deep inside you there is something bad, which can appear at any moment like a little devil (this is often anger and rage).  A person may believe they cannot do anything about it, so suppress it.

There Is an Underlying Fear of Yourself and Often a Suppressed Feminine Aspect

Feminine energy is all about intuition, emotional energies which can be gentle and supple in nature, yet also powerful, but you may not be able to connect with this part of you as the negative emotions become all consuming.  Instead, you become aggressive towards yourself and stay anxiously within your shell.  

All the while longing for warmth and gentleness in your relationships and life.  Again, the pattern of bipolar means that you push away from these sensitive wishes and you may think that you don’t need anyone.

The pattern of energy swings back and forth from big to small, from power to powerless. These are two opposing energies that are complementary and ever seeking balance.

Help your Inability to Be in the Moment

  • You need an outlet, someone to talk to about your feelings. 
  • Write out what is on your mind.  This can help  de-charge an overcharged active mind. 
  • When you focus on releasing how you are feeling in ‘the moment’, it helps to find your centre of balance.
  • Go for a walk and let your mind run riot. Then on the way back consciously switch your thinking into something pleasant and positive. 
  • Focus on something for as long as you can, this may be a flower or a blade of grass.  When your mind wanders, bring it back to focus on that one thing.
