Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is mental-emotional disorder resulting
in an child's actions which reveal an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile,
and defiant behavior toward authority figures (parents, teachers, doctors, etc).
Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a disease of the less evolved soul. Most
sufferers are in the middle stages of their cycle of karma and reincarnation.
They are learning the lessons of life the hard way: by going through life
consistently making unloving choices and quickly reaping the resulting "bad" karma.
It is easier to take the individual out of royalty than
it is to take royal patterns out of the individual. In past lives, many ODD
sufferers were rulers (kings, queens, emperors, popes, etc). They act as if laws,
rules, and guidelines are for "lesser" mortals and not for them. They act as
if others should obey them and so are hostile when others expect them to obey
(even when it is age appropriate for them to do so). They act as if others should
follow their lead and so are naturally disobedient, hostile, and defiant when
others are in charge of their situation.
It is easier to take the individual out of the
aristocracy than it is to take aristocratic patterns out of the individual.
In past lives, many ODD sufferers were aristocrats who were used to being the
power in their universe. They are used to giving orders and so they resent/resist
taking orders. So they respond to orders/authority by being disobedient and
defiant toward orders/authority.
It is easier to take the individual out of the reform
movement than it is to take the reforming spirit out of the individual. In
past lives, many ODD sufferers were reformers who disregarded and would not
follow (what they viewed as) the unjust rules, laws, and customs of society.
They are used to following their own path and so they resist taking orders
from authority figures, especially if those orders somehow seem unfair, unjust,
Former Freedom Fighters:
It is easier to take the individual
out of the fight for freedom than it is to take the fighting spirit out of the
individual. In past lives, many ODD sufferers were freedom fighters whose
mission was to fight for what they viewed as justice, right, and freedom.
Since freedom is such a high value for them, they resist others who seek to
restrict their freedom, even when such restrictions are for their own good
(even when these are age appropriate).
Oppositional Defiant Disorder is characterized by the following behaviors:
- Excessive anger, as in the child losing their temper more often than most
children of their age.
- Excessive argumentativeness, as in the child arguing with adults more
often than most children of their age.
- Intentionally disobedient, as in the child actively refusing to obey
adults' rules or to comply with their requests.
- Intentionally annoyed/annoying, as in the child being easily annoyed by
others or deliberately annoying others.
- Avoiding responsibility, as in blaming others for their mistakes, their
misbehavior, or their misconduct.
- Avoiding work, as in the child expecting others to wait on them, to entertain
them, and to serve them.
- Moody, as in the child being often touchy, angry, resentful, spiteful,
or vindictive, especially with adults.
- Poor interpersonal skills, as in the child not treating adults or other
children with respect or politeness.
- Poor social skills, as in the child not wanting to wait their turn, to
share, or to play nicely with others.
When the life lesson associated with Oppositional Defiant Disorder has been
fully learned and "absorbed" into the person's body-mind-emotions, the related
"disempowering" behavior will fall away. Usually this takes several lives
before the person becomes more responsible for the effects of their causes.
Past life healing can only help if they are close to the end of their cycle
in the above descriptions of Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
