This can be one of the most important aspects of being able to integrate the experience of spiritual crisis. The acceptance of the experience as real and natural and potentially purposeful by other people can help the experiencer stabilise and make meaning from what is happening to them.
Trying to fight or ignore what is happening can have a detrimental effect; the energy used in trying to fight what is happening drains and weakens the individual to the point where they feel that they cannot cope.
Acceptance and validation by those around the experiencer can help them to maintain a sense of stability and wholeness so that they can cope with what is happening.
Validation: Supportive statements: “You are part of the new evolution / Everyone has access to these abilities, but for some people they are not yet conscious.”
“You are not alone! What you are going through is a normal part of a healing process. Don’t give up – there is light at the end of the tunnel even if you feel in complete darkness.”
“You are not becoming unwell, you are becoming well and growing into wholeness”
