Unseen Forces, Visitations & Spiritual Experiences


Scholar, award-winning poet, Jungian psychoanalyst, and cantadora (keeper of the old stories in the Latina tradition), Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, discussed people's extraordinary or supernatural experiences, including spiritual visitations. Some cultures have tried to suppress or discount people's spiritual encounters, such as declaring that a person is mentally ill, if they say they've seen a religious apparition, or something that is greater than themselves. She disparaged this practice, saying "it's like putting a scourge on them," and telling them they are not worthy to have this experience.

Delineating our spiritual and psychological nature, she said the spirit is the animating force of the psyche, whereas the soul is a gigantic broadcasting and transmission system, capable of receiving from beyond the body and the mind. The soul could be thought of like the universe, while the ego is just a tiny island, Dr. Estes continued. Regarding people's supernatural encounters such as the appearances at Fatima, Lourdes, and Medugorje, she said "there's a huge force in the world, call it whatever you like. We are too small to comprehend it, but we have representations of it," such as the Holy or Blessed Mother.

These apparitions are called different names in various cultures, and the effects they have on people are more important than the specifics of what they see, she commented. Imagination is different from fantasy; it is the perception that allows us to see the other world, Estes stated. She also shared her own childhood encounter with a 'Blessed Mother' type figure, who came to her from the water on a beach. Later, her family denied her experience and told her she was seeing a nearby lighthouse. 

Biography:

Clarissa Pinkola Estés is an American poet, psychoanalyst and post-trauma specialist who was raised in a now nearly vanished oral and ethnic traditions. She is a first-generation American who grew up in a rural village, population 600, near the Great Lakes. Of Mexican mestiza, and majority Magyar and minority Swabian tribal heritages, she comes from immigrant and refugee families who could not read or write, or who did so haltingly. Much of her writing is influenced by her family people who were farmers, shepherds, hopsmeisters, wheelwrights, weavers, orchardists, tailors, cabinet makers, lacemakers, knitters, and horsemen and horsewomen from the Old Countries.

Wikipedia
Spiritualism is a belief system or religion, postulating the belief that spirits of the dead residing in the spirit world have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living. Anyone may receive spirit messages, but formal communication sessions (séances) are held by "mediums", who can then provide information about the afterlife.

Spiritualism developed and reached its peak growth in membership from the 1840s to the 1920s, especially in English-language countries. By 1897, it was said to have more than eight million followers in the United States and Europe, mostly drawn from the middle and upper classes, while the corresponding movement in continental Europe and Latin America is known as Spiritism.

The religion flourished for a half century without canonical texts or formal organization, attaining cohesion through periodicals, tours by trance lecturers, camp meetings, and the missionary activities of accomplished mediums. Many prominent Spiritualists were women, and like most Spiritualists, supported causes such as the abolition of slavery and women's suffrage. By the late 1880s the credibility of the informal movement had weakened due to accusations of fraud being perpetrated by mediums, and formal Spiritualist organizations began to appear. Spiritualism is currently practiced primarily through various denominational Spiritualist Churches in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.

The soul, in many mythological, religious, philosophical, and psychological traditions, is the incorporeal and, in many conceptions, immortal essence of a person, living thing, or object. According to some religions (including the Abrahamic religions in most of their forms), souls—or at least immortal souls capable of union with the divine—belong only to human beings. For example, the Catholic theologian Thomas Aquinas attributed "soul" (anima) to all organisms but taught that only human souls are immortal.Other religions (most notably Jainism) teach that all biological organisms have souls, and others further still that even non-biological entities (such as rivers and mountains) possess souls. This latter belief is called animism. Anima mundi and the Dharmic Ātman are concepts of a "world soul."

Soul can function as a synonym for spirit, mind, psyche or self
