Bipolar disorder or manic depression is characterized by an alternation of mood and reactions in individuals who are gradually losing their conscience. They have feelings of grandiosity. They are possessed by an exaggerated energy that leads them to intense activity. After a certain period of time, they are immersed in profound depression. This condition was given the clinical name bipolar because the state of euphoria and depression are at the polar ends of the human range of emotions.
In severe cases, individuals affected by bipolar disorder experience delusions or hallucinations. Their mental disorder acquires the characteristics of a psychosis because they become out of touch with reality.
Bipolar I disorder is characterized by extreme mood swings, from mania (an exaggerated enthusiasm or euphoria) to depression (deep sadness and despair).
Bipolar II disorder is characterized by episodes of hypomania, which generate reactions not as enthusiastic as in cases of bipolar I disorder. Bipolar II disorder generates medium depression, in alternation with hypomanic episodes.
Cyclothymic disorder describes mood swings that are less intense than in cases of bipolar I or II disorder.
In order to eliminate the mood swings that cause abnormal behavior, bipolar individuals must follow dream therapy. The unconscious mind that produces our dreams is a perfect natural doctor. It analyzes the content of the dreamers' psyche and their lives in the dream images. Thus, by translating the meaning of their dreams according to the scientific method, manic depressed or bipolar individuals can understand how to fight against their mental disorder.
The unconscious psychotherapy is based on showing to all dreamers all the mistakes they make for being influenced by their anti-conscience. The anti-conscience is our primitive and wild personality, which is extremely violent, immoral, and cruel. When it invades the human side of our conscience it generates mental illnesses or disorders and abnormal behavior.
All mental disorders begin with the influence of the anti-conscience into our human conscience. However, its poisonous action has different effects on each person. Everything depends on their psychological make-up and on the situations they experience in their lives.
Introverted psychological types are closer to insanity because they are more connected to their internal ego than to what is happening in the real world. This is why they tend to become bipolar. Extroverted psychological types are not more balanced than introverted ones, but they manage to overcome their existential problems through material compensations.
Extroverted psychological types usually suffer from mental illnesses that are not recognized by the superficial mindset of our materialistic civilization, like neurosis. Introverted psychological types usually fall into their anti-conscience's traps because they are more interested in their personal opinion than in the general opinion.
The anti-conscience penetrates the human conscience of all human beings by imposing its absurd thoughts and feelings. However, it pretends to belong to the human conscience. Thus, we cannot recognize its intervention, unless we study the lessons given by the unconscious mind in our dreams.
Even though extroverted psychological types become victims of the anti-conscience's absurdity many times, they don't trust their personal judgment as much as introverted psychological types. Introverted psychological types tend to follow the crazy thoughts and feelings imposed by the anti-conscience for believing that they are 'their own thoughts and feelings', without suspecting that this content is primitive. The unconscious psychotherapy helps them separate the primitive and poisonous content that belongs to the anti-conscience from the content of their human side.
All dream images contain important messages that eliminate the negative influence of the dreamers' anti-conscience. Through dream therapy, they learn how to stop following the absurdity imposed by their anti-conscience; thus, eliminating the mood swings it generates. This is how they manage to tame their wild nature and acquire more consciousness. They are then able to build a sensible, sensitive, and self-confident personality.
