Laura and Bernhard discuss the big topic of Spiritual bypassing, which many people engage in, how to become aware of it, and the solutions. They talk about the traits of spiritual bypassing, why we spiritually bypass (the ideas of grasping, rejecting, and desensitizing), the problems with pathologizing anger, the trap of blind compassion, creating a “spiritual identity,” the “conspiracy rabbit hole” bypass, fake niceness, and much more.

Show Notes Part 1:

  • Definition and Traits of Spiritual Bypassing

In Part 2 (only for members), we go deeper into:

  • The deeper reasons why we spiritually bypass (Grasping, Rejecting, Desensitizing)
  • The conspiracy rabbit hole spiritual bypass
  • The lack of psychological self-awareness and self-work in the “truth movement”
  • When we get into conspiracy information without psychological work, this may further reinforce our trauma, resulting in pathological paranoia
  • The problem of premature forgiveness
  • Even hatred needs to be expressed consciously (without projecting)
  • The problem of creating a spiritual identity
  • Spiritual narcissism and identifying with spiritual experiences
  • The problem of lack of embodiment and becoming rigidly attached to a certain spiritual system to feel grounded
  • The issue of fake niceness instead of authenticity
  • Using “big picture” answers instead of psychologically and relationally attuned answers
  • Being stuck on the “Higher floor” while the floors underneath are a mess
  • The cure to Spiritual bypassing: The Heaven, Earth, and Human principle
