The meteoric rise of children (and adults) who were diagnosed with
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Disorder (ADHD) makes one ponder about
the spiritual relevance of
Children and adults with ADD and ADHD commonly feel like they have a
plethora of energy and need to find creative ways to expend this
The key words is "energy".
Every thought contains energy that is sent out to the universe and
recreated within our societal
mandelbrot as the "now". Many people
diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, have a difficult time focusing on
anything they find mundane, such as school, rules and authority
figures (or anyone, in general) who cannot relate or understand
them. There are many more undiagnosed cases of ADD and ADHD where
people feel this same anomaly.
People with ADD and ADHD learn coping skills to deal with this
In school, a child can sit in front of the class, away
from any windows. The teacher can tap the child on the shoulder if
he or she notices the child drifting away from the subject being
taught. If allowed in school, the student can chew gum which also
helps people with ADD or ADHD maintain focus.
As with any other medical issue, I would advise going with what your
physician prescribes but in the case of ADD and ADHD, I believe it's
an over-prescribed and diagnosed "disorder" that has a definitive
spiritual purpose and can be easily be controlled with coping
Ironically, those with ADD and ADHD tend to think outside the box as
their minds are constantly wandering.
They're usually creative in
the art and music field and have no problem maintaining focus when
their minds are occupied on something they love to do. They will
come up with ideas that are so outside-the-box that others will
initially discredit their ideas because the ideas are too advanced
and cannot be described articulately enough for others to understand
the end results.
They are often innocently forgetful and have a
difficult time remembering things, past or present.
They often have a difficult time fitting into clichés and can relate
to almost every cliché, but many not want to be part of any of them,
distancing themselves from any possible karmic debt associated with
Some are described as "scattered," loners or wanderers who are
trying to find others who are like them or people who can accept
them for who they are without conforming to societal standards.
Many feel confused as to why they have ADD or ADHD and cannot
understand why other people have such an easy time remembering past
or recent thoughts.
Many may feel like they "don't belong here" and have a sense of
where "home" is but it's not necessarily "here".
Is it a coincidence that the prevalence of ADD and ADHD has come at
a time when people have incarnated to this planet with very little
time to garnish and/or remember any negative
Is it a possibility that ADD and ADHD are protective insurance
measures that people took out when they agreed to come to this
help with the ascension process without having the
liability of negative karmic debt?
In a world where people who have a medical diagnosis are looked at
as being "different" from the norm, is this difference a blessing
instead of a curse?
Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of "outside the box" professionals
like myself who are willing to readdress this issue in metaphysical
The problem is that
the APA and
are in bed with
one another, as evidenced by one of their latest disorders,
orthorexia nervosa, which is basically a healthy eating disorder.
You can't make this stuff up!!
My specialty is working with at-risk youth. I developed a program to
help at-risk youths, children going through the reunification
process (e.g. going from a foster home to their new parents) and
parents in need of parenting classes. While my program has an
amazing success rate (no re-offenders back into the system as of
this date), it also helps the families learn how to work with one
another in addressing these issues.
Many of my clients are labeled
ADD/ADHD and I've taught them the basic coping skills that I
mentioned in this article. Many of the children stated they don't
like how they feel when they're on their medications.
Is it possible
that their higher selves are giving them these messages? In my
medications are taking them away from their true
selves when non-medicinal options are available. Of course, Big Pharma and the APA don't want to hear this... all they want is a
diagnosis and a script.
The problem with Big Pharma is that they DON'T CURE ANYTHING!
merely put a bandaid over the problem and rely on repeating,
life-long business generated by the client's psychiatrist or medical
practitioner. There are other options available!!
I highly encourage other therapists and counselors to take a
holistic approach to this "disorder". Once you rule out any other
possible mental illness and/or issue (such as dyslexia), dietary
issues or possible life stressors, you can address this issue
without the need for medication.
One last note for parents with children who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD:
Look at what your child is eating because this may also be the cause
of the problem. Try changing his or her diet to something more
healthy, with less sugars and/or processed foods.
If you have ADD or ADHD, look inside yourself to the reasons why you
have it and how you can use it to better yourself and others.
were given this "gift" for a reason... it's time to find out what
that reason is.
