One of the things Dr. This was in complete opposition to the way his culture views such a situation. What a loss that a person who is finally being aligned with a power from the other world is just being wasted. In fact, psychic abilities are denigrated.
When energies from the spiritual world emerge in a Western psyche, that individual is completely unequipped to integrate them or even recognize what is happening. The result can be terrifying. Without the proper context for and assistance in dealing with the breakthrough from another level of reality, for all practical purposes, the person is insane.
Heavy dosing with anti-psychotic drugs compounds the problem and prevents the integration that could lead to soul development and growth in the individual who has received these energies. They were really fierce about that.
