If somebody experiences a problem this can be described as self-made constructions of reality (not wanted, on an involuntary and mostly unconscious level) which expresses a discrepancy between what is experienced as "it is just happening“ and "what should be“. Suffering evolves when the conscious mind is fighting the unwanted involuntary reactions to tries to escape from them or erase them because all these attempted solutions fail.
Most people live in survival based thinking and feeling by repeating the same reactions to similar triggers, and have forgotten what it means to live in harmony and connection with themselves and each other. Chronic depression, anxiety, rumination, and other psychological problems are not natural states. As science explodes new findings of how to live more often in states of resilience and thriving, these tools can be easily learned and taught to clients.
Whether it is a deep state of trance, a phenomenon of awe-ness, a psychedelic induced expansion, and/or a break through or breakdown of perception, therein lays a greater and “deeper” experience of change. From a neuroplastic or biological state there is the activation of the midbrain, such as the amygdale, cingulate gyrus, nucleus accumbens, which then alter the perceptions of the neocortex.
