“Through the body, we are capable of linking ourselves for the moment to things outside us. Through the soul, we preserve the impressions things make on us. Through the spirit, what the items themselves contain is disclosed to us. Our bodily existence is there for all to see, but we carry our soul existence inside us as our private world. Through the spirit, however, the outer world is revealed to us in a higher way.”, Rudolf Steiner. 

The willing, feeling, and thinking are the three cognitive forces that are mutually inseparable at least in the context of complete knowledge. Incomplete forms of cognition create disorientation, because what is a thought without experience, what to communicate without feeling it. One turns thinking on and off. The person feels relations and situations or avoids them. In comparison to thinking and feeling, the will is always active. We direct our will. Schizophrenia is the result of ignorance about oneself and the environment, which manifests itself as an inability to connect, poor behavior, the hallucinations, delusions, and as the split of personality aka loss of original identity. These inabilities should be recognized not by following definitions, but rather through experience.

The Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler coined the term “schizophrenia” in 1911. The word “schizophrenia” comes from the Greek roots schizo (split) and Phren (mind) to describe the fragmented thinking of people with the disorder. A generally accepted definition says that schizophrenia is a mental illness. Each disease is mental, emotional, behavioral, and physical. There is no non-mental illness due to the fact one is only able to manage thinking. Every condition is the result of faulty thinking that occurs during a traumatic experience or as a result of ignorance. 

So, thinking, feeling, and willing are the cognitive powers that one uses to cognize the environment and oneself, and put oneself into a relationship with the surrounding. If a person is not able to build a healthy relationship with the environment, it is a sign of schizophrenia, although the environment too may be schizophrenic.


The cause of schizophrenia is a traumatic experience. A person is not able to connect one’s own experiences into a whole. A one does not know who and what one is; one does not know one’s mission in life and does not live in harmony with it. If a person is not able to connect one’s purpose with one’s own experiences and the environment into a single whole, then schizophrenia occurs.

When a person gives up of life’s mission, the split of personality emerges. The trauma was so severe that the person concluded that it is not able to live one’s purpose. There is a saying that describes well the situation mentioned above; it says: “Make the frog to climb the rope and frogs will feel stupid all its life.” Divided personality is a consequence of not living one’s mission. Because, how to make a frog not to be a frog. The split of character is the loss of integrity, which is not necessarily a bad thing. A person could learn something out of it. The person should become aware of one’s integrity and take care of one’s integrity and build it in a relationship with the environment. Otherwise, the person will remain isolated and eventually fade away. 

The meaning of schizophrenia, as well as any other disease, is to inspire one for personal development. If not healed on time, a person starts to compensate lack of integrity through the environment. The one becomes a bloodsucker of energy from the environment in myriad forms and ways, from subtle, aggressive, visible and invisible, seemingly peaceful, pleasant, seemingly always ready for unconditional love, to the limitless merciless. Schizophrenia is a lesson that one did not learn. The one alone was not able to create the circumstances to learn a lesson. Or, the environment’s intention was not strong enough to create events in which one would learn a lesson.



There are traumatic experiences that arise when an individual approaches the environment, but also traumatic experience occurs when the environment approaches an individual. Traumatic experiences provoked by one’s intention can be “easily” dismantled because one should be aware of it. Even the events which occurred with the environment’s plan to approach an individual are “easily “dismantled when one is aware where the influence comes from. But what if the impact is camouflaged or invisible. For example, a person can have the experience of physical illness without a traumatic experience, but later on, became traumatic because the person did not recognize the influence on time. If one does not understand it on time, schizophrenia takes place. A person does not know what is happening. One is not clear what it was all about, becomes confused. There is a disorder of thinking, feeling, and willing, and the person becomes schizophrenic while at the same time, don’t know where the influence comes from. 

Therefore there are three main types of influence: visible, invisible, and camouflaged, and they all manifest in all dimensions of existence. In the physical aspect appears as an object, in the astral world as image or impression. In the spiritual world, there is no schizophrenia, but there are astral beings that can be presented as a spiritual being. In the spiritual world, one is self-aware of one’s true nature and goes through personal transformation.

In the objective world, it is easier for one to become oriented because one is the most familiar with the 3D world. Besides, there is an educational system that introduces the objective world to the one. It is harder for one to manage in the astral world.  Not just because there is no prevalent educational system, but also because in this world, one needs a certain amount of experience and security. In the spiritual world, there is no support of the outside world, one entirely relies on one’s true nature. 

Schizophrenia occurs whenever the subjective world does not resonate with the objective world. The person lives in a world of illusion, hallucination, and illnesses. The only question is who is the sick one, the observer, or the environment. If it is about a physical illness, it is clear who is schizophrenic. A person can live in the objective world, the world of lower and higher astral plane and in the spiritual world, but the problem arises when these worlds do not resonate with each other. For example, a person has the image of God, which comes from the lower astral and behaves as if that God exists in the objective world, treats God as a person although it is about a lower astral. So, to have a resonance, it is necessary that the subjective image resonates with the objective world. Everything that belongs to the 3D world has associated astral body. But what if such an image does not exist as an object in the physical dimension? Then, it is a sign of a schizophrenic personality.

There is a difference between camouflaged and invisible impact. Camouflaged influence presents oneself for something that is not. For example, today, the market is full of GMO “food.” There is also a myriad of different products presented as a “medicine.” So, camouflaged influence is one where people have developed a particular relationship, and as the basis of this relationship is a false image of what the impact is. Unlike camouflaged there and invisible influences, when people do not even know what is happening, because the invisible force is simply hidden. It can only be recognized based on personal impression. 



Objective schizophrenia

Objective schizophrenia occurs whenever an external object does not resonate with an internal image. If purpose, meaning, and the name of an object do not resonate with the same features assigned to the mental image. If the mental image and external object do not overlap, schizophrenia emerges. The schizophrenic person will try his best to provoke external events in ways that resonate with one’s character, and the same will do a schizophrenic environment. So schizophrenic person can seek help at the hospital as a kind of escape, can attack victims to find the confirmation for one’s health, etc. As long as there is an environment which needs the energy of schizophrenic person schizophrenia will survive. As long as there is an institution that offers “help” for every disorder, health will never be achieved. Health is taking responsibility for one’s own life rather than seek salvation in the environment. Only the devil offers salvation. There is no salvation in the outside world, but one saves oneself. From the surrounding comes the inspiration for one’s personal development that by nature should be accompanied by support, acceptance, recognition, and acknowledgment. 

Spiritual schizophrenia

Common sense shouldn’t be ignored too, because the one who knows oneself and one’s personality knows when it is about external influence. The one who does not know oneself and one’s character will not know how to be in a relationship with the environment in the right way, and a consequence is a spiritual schizophrenia. The person is not aware of one’s own true identity, but experience a split of personality. A person is trapped within the personality’s framework through which builds the relationship with the world. Such a person will not show signs of schizophrenia as long as person manages to build required relationships. As long as the behavior of a schizophrenic person is socially acceptable by existing standards.


Camouflaged and invisible schizophrenia

Additionally, to schizophrenia that is socially acceptable by definition, there is hidden and unseen schizophrenia. Camouflaged influence does not create camouflaged schizophrenia just as an invisible force does not create invisible schizophrenia. Camouflaged schizophrenia occurs by creating a definition of schizophrenia. As soon as something is put in a specific framework and become socially acceptable, the basis for camouflaged schizophrenia is formed. Each form of the opposite behavior is not considered schizophrenia, although it does not need to be so. Schizophrenia knows no boundaries when it comes to ways of manifestation, so each definition based on the type of influence and symptoms is superfluous and useless. It’s irrelevant what someone accepts, but whether it respects the universal organization. Whether it respects the right or wrong. In any case, the disease is a sign that something is wrong, that experiences are incorrectly associated with each other and do not represent oneness. If the environment becomes increasingly ill, then everyone should be clear that it’s not healthy, what is socially acceptable.  For example, pharmaceuticals create a grand illusion presenting the elimination of symptoms by medicine as successful healing. This is a classic example of camouflage. 

Camouflaged schizophrenia is invisible to a schizophrenic environment. It is not the same as invisible schizophrenia. Invisible schizophrenia occurs when the person is not aware of the true nature of the surrounding. Such a person makes a distinction and in fact, does not realize one’s schizophrenia. The person lacks real knowledge. Only with the direct experience of the truth, the invisible can be experienced. However, such an experience can not be transmitted, only experienced.


Astral schizophrenia

In the astral world, there are more traps than in the physical world. When a person is traumatized, one is ready to accept all kinds of support just to compensate for the lack of personal integrity. In such situations, one sometimes connects with lower astral beings. From the astral world, one gets non-human powers applied in the physical world as to defend oneself. Or, the person is simply drawn into the astral world and continue to live there. Such a person is no longer fully present in the physical world. In any case, the person can not get by and continuously face the obstacles. The person lives in a world of hallucinations and illusions given by the environment. In such circumstances, one tries to achieve self-realization but fails.



Schizophrenia is any form of not knowing the universal laws of existence, the one’s true nature, and the one’s multidimensionality. We are all explorers driven by ignorance. We all strive for new experiences from ignorance to knowledge. Traumatic experiences and personal growth come from ignorance. Knowledge is acquired through involvement in the physical dimensions, but there are also astral and spiritual experiences from which one gets the understanding that precedes the knowledge gained in the physical aspects. Only with a full range experience, knowledge becomes complete, and the person becomes non-schizophrenic, non-dual, but unique and with personal integrity. Healthy state is non-mental.


In many articles, it says that schizophrenia occurs at a younger age. No wonder when we consider the educational system that pushes on the absorption of empty concepts without experience. No wonder that arises claim that schizophrenia is a mental illness because one does not learn how to feel and how to assign names to feelings, and how to build relationships with the environment. Essentially it is irrelevant when schizophrenia occurs, it can occur at any time, depending on the strength of a traumatic experience. But yes, the best period for the development is in childhood, because children are vulnerable to external influences since they are not able to independently cope with external circumstances. Children learn from the environment, build a relationship with their surrounding. If they have a wrong role model who uses force, then the children repress their total potential and afterward is forgotten. They are forced to go through the experience of life and death situations. The school system is only one example, but there are much more examples. 

The original draft is awakened gradually, and in every stage, special force is stimulated and developed – thinking, feeling, willing. You can not force a rose to bloom as soon as the seed is planted. It needs to be nurtured, watered and the original draft unfolds from start to the end. In the same way, one should be allowed to develop freely at one’s own pace in a relationship with the environment with the support, acceptance, recognition, and confirmation during the learning and development process.
