The Link Between Psychic Ability, Schizophrenia and Psychosis | The Weiler Psi

"It is impossible to do research into psychic ability and psychics without coming across stories of psychosis. And lurking in the background is a connection to schizophrenia, which is far more common in the families of psychic people than in the population at large. In order to address this issue with any sort of expertise though, I needed a source of information which clarified the topic. Well, now I have it. Cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD, is a creativity researcher who wrote an article exploring the link between schizophrenia and highly creative people.

We can use the same information for psychic people because this is basically the same group. Kaufman acknowledges as much, although he uses the euphemisms, “magical thinking” and “unusual perceptive experience” to describe psi. It’s annoying, I know. But at least the data is there.

But there are also documented instances of psychics experiencing psychosis, which are not part of that article and I want to address that as well, because it happens to a very certain type of psychic under some very specific circumstances."

Psychic Or Schizophrenic

Psychic Or Schizophrenic - Hope From Beyond

"This is indeed a difficult subject, but one of the most important articles I feel I could write. When people first have psychic experiences with verbal audio contact, often they first think that they are schizophrenic. Why? Because of the attitudes of how other people are when it comes to "hearing voices". Television programs have used it often as plots just so that a disparagingly negative appearance is cast upon psychic experiences. Religious groups have made it appear a negative event, and much negative publicity has resulted. Automatically they think they are losing their minds and worry. Worry causes further problems and it all results in the blocking of anything psychic of a higher level and useful nature to help others, which is the general purpose of being psychic."

Psychics shmychics, I say. I don't believe in psychics or psychic ability, as the conformist world perceives it. I believe it's all performed by forces of evil and darkness; I believe the false brainwashing ability to have the psychic "power" is also received from such.
I do, however, believe in having intuition and sense, discernment and insight, understanding, and a deep sense of knowing in our spirit, or having that "gut feeling" about certain things.

Why do you think that?

What are the differences?

People have heard what I've thought,
Not what I've said,
I'm not evil.
(Well I don't think I am)

"Many scientists who are still part of the scientific mainstream are no longer afraid to openly state that consciousness / awareness could, in addition to space, time, matter and energy, be a fundamental element of the world - perhaps even more fundamental than space and time."

i thought this had been proven.

Collective consciousness and all that.

ETA: it has

Durkheim sought to create one of the first rigorous scientific approaches to social phenomena. Along with Herbert Spencer, he was one of the first people to explain the existence and quality of different parts of a society by reference to what function they served in maintaining the quotidian (i.e. by how they make society "work"). He also agreed with his organic analogy, comparing society to a living organism.[15] Thus his work is sometimes seen as a precursor to functionalism.[11][35][36][37] Durkheim also insisted that society was more than the sum of its parts.[38]

I think that because I believe in God ALMIGHTY. Good and evil. I believe in Yeshua.
And, the difference is THE obvious difference.
I don't believe in psychic readings, psychic ability, nor psychic-telekinetic powers. People just allow themselves to be brainwashed by all that mumbo jumbo. It's all propaganda. An easy way to make money for those who successfully control those who fall for their mind games.
