The alarming highs and lows associated with the problem are controlled by powerful drugs, but neuroscientists are at a loss as to what is actually going on.
Most assume it’s a genetic problem, and some believe it could be caused by a chemical imbalance.
If they carried on looking, they’d discover that almost every mental problem—such as depression and anxiety—has the exact same genesis. ‘Bad’ experiences and trauma leave an energetic imprint that find expression as emotional outbursts, negative thought patterns—and so-called mental problems.
And if therapists and researchers were to look closer still, they would see that this energy creates the ‘problem’ first, and then the ‘person’ who identifies with it, owns it and feels responsibility for it.
