Question: What do the Ascended masters think about neuropsychology that has penetrated almost all areas of life? Is ABA therapy (applied behavior analysis) effective?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at the 2020 Webinar- Being the Divine Mother.
Well, my beloved, if you take my previous dictation, you will see that when people go into the school of hard knocks, when they separate themselves from the direct guidance from the ascended masters, the only way they can be freed from their mental boxes is that they take these mental boxes to an extreme.
You have neuropsychology, neurophysiology, which started out and still for most other practitioners, is a materialistic endeavor. They want to explain human behavior as a result of the physical functioning of the brain. In other words, their goal is that all aspects of human behavior can be explained by physical processes in the brain. Naturally, these people have closed themselves off from the ascended masters who are in a higher realm, and therefore, we cannot be explained by physical processes in the brain.
When we give a dictation, you cannot map the physical processes in the messenger’s brain and explain every word that is coming out of his mouth. It cannot be done. It never will be possible to do this, no matter how developed the science becomes. The only chance that people will get out of this is that they are allowed to run their course, they are allowed to take this into the absurd where it becomes clear that they cannot explain every aspect of human behavior by looking at the brain.
Now, this is not to say that there are not certain positive aspects of neuroscience, because there are certainly certain aspects of human behavior that can be affected by the physical processes in the brain, and it is valuable to map these and to understand them. But when you do understand how the brain influences behavior or even cognition, then you will also begin to understand that there are certain aspects of behavior and cognition that are not affected by the brain.
Again, this can lead to various useful therapies. Applied behavior analysis is one example of something that can be useful in certain conditions. But it is not as some people think, the ultimate method that will cure all mental illness. There is no ultimate method, because the human psychology is so complex.
