psychotherapy and spirituality ‒ the connection

Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) as a Spiritual Path [1st section inner family(AL)].

When psychotherapy and spirituality are linked, Spiritual Psychotherapy is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Objections to this link come from both the therapeutic and the spiritual side. I address these in “Spiritual Psychotherapy: The Inner Family”. Ultimately, however, these objections from both sides only reflect the separation of divine and earthly in people’s consciousness.

With “Spiritual Psychotherapy: The Inner Family” I have written the standard work which starts from the complete consciousness of the transcendent human being and from this focuses therapeutically healing on the earthly personality structure. This means that Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) is part of the much larger whole. Accordingly, the individual psychotherapies are assigned to the earthly personality structure (inner family and body, see also body psychotherapy) of the transcendent human being.

Spirituelle Meisterin Ayleen der Am-Ziel-ErleuchtungSpiritual Psychotherapy(AL) concerns the first section of the complete spiritual path (see also Books Spiritual Path). It uses psychotherapeutic and spiritual methods to prepare the healthy earthly vessel into which universal love can then flow. The direction of action of Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) is, from the universal point of view, the earthly part of the complete consciousness of the transcendent human being.

The second stage on the complete spiritual path is the connection of Divine and earthly. This connection is a new level because it is about the next level of consciousness. The connection of Divine and earthly through the Guilt – lLl – Praktik© involves a shift in consciousness which has nothing to do with the already commonly practiced “connected” application of psychotherapeutic and spiritual methods. A combination of psychotherapeutic and spiritual methods concerns instead – so far unsystematically and only through the standard work “Spiritual Psychotherapy: The Inner Family” related to the inner family(AL) – the earthly level of consciousness.

Are psychic and spiritual development one or two processes?[1] This question is posed by the spiritual teacher Shai Tubali and answered to the effect that they are two processes that can be distinguished from each other. With this statement, he opposes what he observes to be a particularly common misunderstanding in the spiritual scene.

Instead, Shai Tubali correctly assigns the psychic process to the development of the ego and describes the spiritual process as development into infinity consciousness. He recognises that psychic and spiritual development are both important and influence each other. However, he remains in the old-age error that they are completely independent of each other. So he leaves them side by side because he cannot relate them to each other.

In the conventional spiritual understanding, therefore, I would like to summarise the basic positions:

Spiritual psychotherapy
Enlightenment teachings
Parallelism of psychological and spiritual development
Continuity of psychological and spiritual development

I would like to comment on each of these basic positions.

1. spiritual psychotherapy

Firstly, there is spiritual psychotherapy, which in conventional form incorporates spiritual methods into psychotherapy. In fact, however, it is the transcendent human being with his inner family (AL), into which all psychotherapeutic methods are to be integrated. Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) aims at the earthly part of consciousness of the transcendent human being and thus belongs to the first section of the complete spiritual path.

2. enlightenment teachings

Secondly, there are enlightenment teachings, which aim at the change into universal consciousness, giving up the ego. This is a shift out of identification with the earthly part of consciousness (ego) into identification with the divine part of consciousness (conventional enlightenment). The experience of the divine part of consciousness is part of complete development, but the separation and suppression of the earthly part of consciousness is not. The suppression of the ego is wrong.


Thirdly, there is the parallelism of psychic and spiritual development.

Thirdly, there is the parallelism of psychic and spiritual development. This means that the healing of the earthly part of consciousness and the conventional enlightenment are striven for in parallel. Thus, both the divine and the earthly part of consciousness are dealt with, while the connection of both parts of consciousness is missing.

4. continuity of psychic and spiritual development

Fourthly, there is the continuity of psychic and spiritual development. In this, psychotherapy is seen as a preliminary stage to enlightenment.

Meanwhile (as of 2/2018) there seems to be a trend towards adopting ego detachment for psychotherapy as well. Already in my video “The 7 biggest spiritual errors” I go into this in a therapeutic professional article. Now another article has appeared in the specialist magazine Naturheilpraxis, Psychologie und Naturheilkunde “Paracelsus” with the recommendation to integrate this ego detachment into every psychotherapy.

Since “Paracelsus” is the magazine of the alternative practitioner schools, it is likely to have a serious influence on alternative psychotherapy. Therefore I would like to correct this wrong development in psychotherapy. The article “1 remedy that can cure all symptoms?”[2] gives the following recommendation:

“… A quick way?

Since learning meditation is the royal road to healing in the long run, because you lose all your symptoms at the same time as your ego (these are always the disease descriptions of an individual!), but this also needs its certain amount of time, we therapists need, at least in the initial phase, something in addition that is more quickly effective, namely psychotherapy, if possible with quickly effective and solution-oriented interventions (ultra-short-term therapy). …


… the huge potential of the path of enlightenment should be used through meditative practice and integrated into every psychotherapy in order to catapult the suffering patient out of his depression in the medium to long term and make him self-sufficient (also from the therapist and from methods or remedies) and self-sufficient.

Give your patients suffering from any symptoms a real long-term chance to quickly enjoy the wonderful light of life again, detached from the limited ego view and liberated with a view of the great whole of creation! …”

This article contains three false statements. First, ego detachment is said to mean healing. In fact, ego detachment is exactly the opposite of healing. Any separation and repression blocks the healing universal flow of love and is thus harmful. Secondly, psychotherapy is supposed to be a short-term interim solution for ultimately conventional enlightenment. This view completely fails to recognise the different objectives. Psychotherapy serves to heal the earthly part of consciousness and enlightenment is directed towards the divine part of consciousness. Thirdly, meditation is not suitable for every personality structure. So this new trend in psychotherapy is not to be followed at all.

What is positive, however, is the openness of psychotherapy to spirituality, which is evident in this interest in enlightenment. In this respect I would like to refer to my basic works for the complete spiritual path, which begin with Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) for the earthly part of consciousness and end with the complete consciousness of the Am-Target Enlightenment©. The task of Spiritual Psychotherapy(AL) is to heal and complete the inner family(AL) as I describe in “Spiritual Psychotherapy: The Inner Family”. “Spiritual Psychotherapy: The Inner Family” is the standard work for all psychotherapists who embed their personal approach in the whole of the new age of Final Enlightenment.

The Solution: New Age of Am-Ziel-Erleuchtung©

The next level of spiritual development and at the same time evolutionary leap of consciousness of the new age is the connection of the divine and the earthly part of consciousness to the complete consciousness. This is the second stage on the complete spiritual path to Am-Target Enlightenment©.
