Alzheimer’s is a crippling disease, debilitating both the mental and physical faculties needed to perform at an acceptable level in everyday life. As observed in many cases there are key stages of deterioration beginning with the tell tale signs of forgetfulness, general confusion with time and an overall inability to function in a coherent state of mind. With my own mother aged 89 now entering an advanced stage of the disease I’d like to offer some of my observations and insights.
All mental aberration, including Alzheimer’s and senility, occurs as a consequence of a psychic blockage or congestion. Cloaked behind the material brain is a psychic system of sensors whose function is to translate incoming pulses of life before it takes form. In a healthy brain these pulses are converted to the frequency necessary for sensory life on earth. However as a consequence of the continual deluge of information through modern technology there is now an enormous residue of mental garbage that permeates a layer of the human psyche. The effect of this is similar to a tidal wave that periodically arises to engulf anything in its path. To those vulnerable to these intense psychic energies (which includes far more of the world’s population than is reported) a mental overload can literally short circuit the normal transmission of data. This happens by means of an electrical charge generated through the central nervous system and is the trigger needed to activate the potential of Alzheimer’s (or any other disease or disorder) stored within the genes of the cells.
But there’s another important factor. Inherent in the human body is a natural withdrawing mechanism that precedes the after death process. As a preparation for death the physical functions of the body gradually reduce in efficiency to compensate for the reorientation of hormones from a positive life supporting charge to a negative life withdrawing charge. The onset of Alzheimer’s parallels this process and is similar to a car which begins to fire on only five of its six cylinders. It’s still able to get around but the performance is reduced. In time with less fuel or life force able to sustain the vehicle, there is only one way to go and that is to withdraw back to the source.
Since the earliest recorded times any eccentricity or unusual behaviour has been cited as madness, insanity or even possession by evil spirits. The fact is that Alzheimer’s is a symptom of the disordered world that we all must confront in one way or another. It’s mostly the elderly who are susceptible to Alzheimer’s but due to the worldwide increase of electromagnetic pollution, in generations to come, those of a much younger age will become increasingly vulnerable to its symptoms. Even if a cure is discovered the disease will be superseded by something else. Those afflicted by Alzheimer’s are casualties of a world that has abdicated its responsibilities as a race and to the planet. And yet, as in the case of my dear mum, she is looked after and cared for by life itself in the form of living angels – the nurses and staff devoted to the well-being of those in their care.
The experience of seeing a loved one afflicted with Alzheimer’s has a profound and transformative effect. To me it has demonstrated that love for another is not bound by appearance or the recollection of past memories. Love is not a personal feeling but an impersonal embracing of the broader vision that recognises and acknowledges the justice and integrity of life. In the gradual demise of somebody dear is the opportunity for the living to die a little to the dream of existence and perhaps discover a love that endures forever.
