Many spirituals have wondered when coming in contact with a person with dementia, Alzheimer or other mental illnesses of this kind, what happens to that person's soul since the person herself does no longer seem to be connected to the reality around.
As we all know, most of this kind of diseases occur in old age and are attributed to brain degeneration, and medical research and studies have produced all sorts of hypotheses about its causes. Medical science has not identified the causes but rather the circumstances that favor its occurrence such as genetic factors like diabetes, hypertension, obesity, etc.
I will give you below from my research the spiritual causes of Alzheimer's and other mental diseases in the same category, so you will be able to avoid them in the long run.
As we know, a soul comes to incarnate on this planet by acquiring a body by the normal birth. A body is a complex energy construct and is actually an instrument for experimenting this world by that soul, who needs an energy tool for this to experiment other energies around.
The soul is not energy at all, it is only consciousness with a certain level of awareness that soul has reached. The world we live in is a 3D world from the awareness (vibration) level point of view, this being the average level of awareness of most souls in a percentage of 90% in this humanity. In a percentage of 10% we also find 4D vibration souls and higher, including even a few souls that have reached enlightenment, hence they have reached the 7D vibration (7th chakra vibration).
When coming for embodiment on a planet a soul comes with an initial plan of major lessons to study, a plan that he tries to follow throughout life using that body. As we all know, experiences in this world are difficult and in general most persons move away from the ideal plan of the soul due to all sorts of limiting subconscious beliefs that they gather throughout life, such as fears, worries, enmities, attachments to wealth, to other people, obsessions, etc. Nevertheless, it's important that during life the soul remains in connection with the mind at all times, so that the mind-soul communication channel still works, even if only in a small proportion of say 5-10%.
This way, the soul can transmit to the mind through various channels such as intuition, dreams, synchronicities, etc., some feedback manifested as guiding beacons (divine messages) so the person can adjust his path in life to a certain extent, and at the same time the person remains aware that there is something outside the immediate reality given by the 5 senses.
The problem is that Alzheimer and dementia patients in general have become for a long time before the disease occurs disconnected from their soul by their own choice, and very attached to the 3D world around them. In other words, they developed very strong attachments to the reality around, and refused by definition anything that can’t be felt by the basic 5 senses or confirmed by mainstream science. Moreover, they lost any constructive curiosity about life, they are fearfull of any change, and very attached to old habits. The issue here is that fundamentally a soul takes a body in a world to experiment around until the last moment of body's life, not to just stay and repeat the same gestures forever and hence loose any chance to learn something new.
In Alzheimer patients, in response to their withdrawal from the connection with their own soul, their soul "moves away" from them and mostly ceased to participate in their daily lives, and as a result the person loses the support of their own soul. The soul withdrawing from the intimate connection with the body technically implies also the withdrawal of the subtle energies of life maintenance that are felt especially in the energy fields of the brain which are very sensitive to any such changes. Without the permanent energy feeding coming from the soul, the results are great energy distortions in the brain that give memory loss, disorientation, confusion, speech problems, depression, etc.
The person basically becomes a vegetable disconnected from reality and from communication with other people, no longer able to understand the life experiences he is going through and unable to progress, because he has severed the connection with his own soul through the choices he has made along life.
So my advice is that, no matter how old you are, never forget the connection with your soul, with God, with the higher dimensions, to remain convinced that you are a soul that has an earthly experience that uses a body, and that you are immortal as soul. Keep your curiosity alive, don't avoid on purpose changes and challenges if possible, be humble and open, remember your soul-connection, and all will be well.
Only this way the soul will remain intimately attached to your body, and will give you its full support, keeping you conscious, curious, and connected to Life until the very end.
