The spiritual causes of Alzheimer's and dementia illnesses

Updated: Jun 22

Many spiritual folks often wonder what happens to the soul of someone with dementia, Alzheimer's, or similar mental illnesses since the person seems disconnected from reality. These diseases usually occur in old age and are linked to brain degeneration, with medical research suggesting various causes. However, medical science obviously can't pinpoint the spiritual root of dementia; it mainly identifies factors like genetics, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity that might contribute to its development.


I've spent years researching and using my ability to look into body energies and souls to understand the spiritual causes of Alzheimer's and related mental illnesses. I'll share my findings below so you can learn how to potentially avoid these conditions in the long run.


As we know, a soul incarnates on this planet by being born into a body. This body is a complex energy construct, serving as an instrument for the soul to interact with and experiment with the energies of the world around it.

The soul isn't actually energy; it's actually pure consciousness with a certain level of awareness. Our world is 3D in terms of awareness (or vibration), which is the average level for about 90% of humanity. The other 10% includes souls with 4D vibrations or higher and even a few enlightened souls who have reached the 7D (7th chakra level) vibration.

The soul-mind connection and the dementia spiritual root

When a soul embodies on a planet, it brings a plan for major life lessons to go through, like for instance to study being envious, being greedy, deep selfishness, being altruistic, and so on. This plan is something it tries to follow using the body it inhabits. However, life on Earth can be tough, and many people stray from their soul's ideal path due to subconscious limiting beliefs they pick up, like fears, worries, attachments, cravings, etc. Despite this, it's crucial for the soul to stay connected with the mind, even if just a little.

This connection allows the soul to send messages to the mind through intuition, dreams, and other signs, offering guidance to help the person stay on track and remain aware of a reality beyond the physical senses.

The issue with Alzheimer's and dementia patients is that they have long disconnected from their souls by choice, becoming deeply attached to the physical world. They rely heavily on what can be sensed by their five senses and confirmed by mainstream science and that’s about all.

Additionally, they often lose their curiosity about life, fear change, and cling to old habits.

The main point here is that a soul inhabits a body to explore and learn until the body's last moment, not to just repeat the same actions and miss out on new experiences. Many people who live to be 100 or older and are still healthy and active say their secret is staying curious, finding joy in small things, being optimistic, and feeling grateful for every moment.

The Disconnection between Soul and Mind

In Alzheimer's patients, when they disconnect from their own soul, the soul "steps back" and stops being involved in their daily lives. This leads to the person losing the support of their own soul. When the soul withdraws, it also takes away the subtle life-sustaining energies, especially affecting the brain's energy fields, which are very sensitive to such changes.

Without the soul's constant subtle energy supply to the brain, major neurological issues arise over time like memory loss, disorientation, confusion, speech problems, and depression. So, the spiritual root of Alzheimer's and dementia is essentially the separation of the mind and soul.

The person then becomes disconnected from reality and other people, unable to understand their life experiences or progress because they've severed their connection with their soul through their life choices. This separation is the spiritual root of memory loss, confusion, depression, and other dementia symptoms.

In short, the spiritual cause of dementia is losing interest in the world around you and in new experiences. Neurology has shown that new interests create new neural pathways in our brains, making them more adaptable due to neuroplasticity. Our brains are designed this way to adapt to new experiences and enhance our soul's awareness. If we stop engaging with life, the soul withdraws, and this disconnection between the mind, brain, and soul leads to physical brain deterioration, which is an effect of this disconnection.

How to remain connected with your soul in old age?

The spiritual root of dementia, including Alzheimer's, can be seen as the soul's "protest" for being ignored and not fulfilling its purpose on Earth: learning, experiencing new things, and raising awareness.

Since dementia's spiritual cause is linked to the separation of soul and mind, my advice is to always remember, no matter your age, that losing this connection is the root issue. You are a soul having an earthly experience in a body, and as a soul, you are immortal. Stay curious, embrace changes and challenges whenever possible, be humble and open, and maintain your soul connection. In such a case everything will be alright.

Laugh frequently, stay curious about the world around you, but don't get too caught up in the fear spread by mass media. Always be open to learning new things, stay positive even when you're in pain, and show care and love to others. Embracing spirituality can really help keep mental illnesses away and keep your soul engaged with you until the end. This way, your soul will stay closely connected to your body, offering full support and keeping you aware, curious, and connected to Life until the very end!

in general terms these manifestations you mention could indicate such a disconnection, but not necessarily; there are other factors at play here.

Anyway, a soul doesn't disconnect completely as long as a person is still alive, but might "take a distance" from the body's actions so to say, and starts to participate less in daily life.

Only a thorough spiritual diagnostic can evaluate if this is the case. If interested by such you can take a look at the Psychic Reading section of my site here
