Soulful Psychology for a life of beauty, depth and sensuality
Hello, dear consciousness explorer! My name is Kim Seppälä, and I'm a writer and researcher of consciousness (and a soon-to-be psychologist).
"How does awakening affect our relationships, mental health and passion for life? How can expanded consciousness be grounded and applied to real life? How do our emotions change when we become more conscious? And what happens to the mind after awakening?" These are some of the topics explored on this site.
Whether you call it soulful psychology, psychology for conscious humans, or NEW ENERGY PSYCHOLOGY, I'm passionate about the integration of inner wisdom with the embodied, sensory experience of being human.
In today's world, psychology and awakening are often perceived as two distinctly separate domains. Many psychologists avoid the "spiritual" aspect of life (whatever that means) for fear of being unprofessional or un-scientific. After all, the timeless, divine essence of our being cannot be captured with 3-dimensional scientific instruments.
At the same time, spirituality is so recklessly used as a bypass technique to not face the pain or emptiness within that ancient Zen practitioners invented a word for the habit of using spirituality as a distraction from the true path of self-realization. (The word is "makyo".) No amount of crystal healing or chakra cleansing will "heal" low self-esteem, toxic relationships or anxiety until the individual is ready to choose and allow something new.
Yet, in essence, psychology and the path to self-realization share the same purpose: To know our true nature and to free ourselves from suffering.
The magic of life unfolds with each step we take closer to our natural, authentic self.
So what is soulful psychology about? I describe it as a creative and integrative approach to natural health and wellbeing that acknowledges all the facets of our being - the divine Self that exists beyond time and space (you could call it your wisdom), and the human personality with its emotions, thoughts and body sensations. New Energy Psychology is a supportive companion to the awakened human who is ready to allow more beauty, depth and joy into her/his life.
New Energy Psychology is here to support the conscious human who desires change -
Whether it is a big leap in life or a fine twist in perspective; a fresh perception of self; a deep sigh of relief and relaxation; a smile of joy as you embrace the colors and sensuality of life again; or simply, a compassionate reminder of the perfection that You are right here, right now; a persistent voice repeating: All is well in the safe space of self-love.
