Helen Schucman and dissociative disorder

Written by 

Ozodi Osuji is thinking out loud:


At night we sleep. In our sleep we dream. In our dreams are different people, each with his own well integrated personality.

In a dream a person who, in day life, does not know anything about, say, physics or mathematics may have a character in it teaching physics or mathematics. Yet, it is the sleeping individual that produced the seeming different persons in his dreams, persons with skills that he may not have in day life.

If that is the case could it be that the day world is also the product of one sleeping and dreaming person, the one son of God?

Apparently, there are infinite persons in heaven, all of whom share the one son of God and also share God. The son of God could use those people in his dreams. Whereas in heaven they are disembodied spirits, he transmutes them into his dream figures, persons in physical forms; what he did would be like what we do in our earthly dreams: take the different people in our day lives and transmute them to dream figures that do things in our dreams.

In dissociative disorder the individual has many personalities in his mind and each act as if he is different from the others; and while one is acting the others may not know about his actions.

In this light, could it be that Helen Schucman and other so-called spirit mediums have dissociative personality disorders and have many personalities in their minds and one of them is their day to day self and in writing their so-called channeled materials another personality, also them, takes over and write what they write?

In dreams we do have different persons, some scientists, mathematicians and so on doing what we cannot do in our own day life. So could it be that a personality in the individual, doing what he cannot do in day life, does the speaking that the medium attributes to spirits?

The historical Jesus was not a psychologist and did not learn psychoanalysis, learning theory and ego psychology nor did he know about the oriental concept of separation from God that Helen's Jesus knew.

Could A course in miracles, profound as it is, have been written by an aspect of Helen that she did not know is part of her?

In our dreams some persons know different things that we do not know in day life so Jesus could have been a dream figure in Helen's dream that knows different things that her day to day life does not know.

It should also be noted that nothing written by spirit mediums have turned out true or predict what is going to happen in the world; they are almost always useful poetic renditions of life but not scientific studies of phenomena.

Helen's Jesus wrote beautiful material from the perspective of Gnosticism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Mystical Christianity but as in those religions nothing he said can be proved as true or has been able to predict the future.

Nothing said here proves or disproves anything that Helen and her Jesus said. If at all anything is proved it is that the entirety of our day world is in our mind(s) and one of those people in Helen's mind (in our minds), called itself Jesus. That is, Jesus is in Helen's mind and is part of Helen, and is part of all our minds; this is akin to Carl Jung's collective unconscious mind.


If you think about the universe it would become self-evident to you that there has to be one type of energy that is capable of transforming itself to anything it wants to. All things must begin in one thing or else there will be no order in the universe.

We know that during the big bang, out of nowhere, light energy appeared. That light energy transformed itself to particles (electrons, protons and neutrons) and transformed those to atoms and transformed one set of atoms to another and in time used atoms to construct stars, planets, animals, people and everything in the universe.

One form of energy is now all the diverse things we see in our universe.  At the anthropomorphic level, all people are one; light energy transformed itself to infinite people, all of whom are like photons, particles of light in that light; particles are one with the wave of light. The particles of light, us, sought separation and dissociated from each other and now see themselves as different from each other.


The seeming dissociated and separated parts are still parts of the person they are dissociating and separating from; there is still one self, if you must name him, one God and one son of God.

Psychotherapists integrate the many seeming dissociated parts of a multiple personality disordered person into oneself.  Salvation lies in integrating all people to seeing themselves as parts of one's self.
