I do admit that seeing this title statement in my email box did make me chuckle. And after watching the latest horrors on the news this morning, that was a GOOD thing.
Seriously, how do you know if you are “crazy” or not in a world that is itself far from being sane?
Even the psychology text books over the last forty years have been vastly updated to no longer consider “abnormal” some aspects of human behavior (like homosexuality) that had once been considered abhorrent and “treatable” at the time.
I know this because I thought I wanted to be a Psychology major way back then, until I took some psych courses at the university and found the professors in that psychology department were some of the strangest dudes on the entire campus (no women in the department back then)—they were somewhat creepy—socially questionable—almost ‘horror-flick stand-ins’ sort of folks—thus inspiring me to change my major to ART after that semester.
And when you try to corral the “crazy” subject itself, it is nearly impossible to define what constitutes ‘our REALITY’ when researchers and physicists daily keep stretching the boundaries of what that ‘actual reality’ entails.
REALITY may be more of a frequency range that you tune in to, like turning a radio dial from one station to the next, depending on the receiver’s frequency-range capability. More ‘psychic’ folks tend to have a broader range of ‘radio frequency reception’ (greater bandwidth) than those who are stuck on one station alone.
I know that I’ve personally seen/heard/felt some very strange things during altered states of awareness—even to the point of being unable to shut off the “other-dimension reality” spigot for a time—which was far from fun. Being constantly bombarded 24/7 with ‘everything’ that is actually around us (in other dimensions of co-existence), is as mentally challenging as it can get, and I’m NOT as psychically receptive to other frequencies beyond our normal ‘reality’ as many of my friends are. (Our group-gatherings are a ‘real trip’ by any standard.)
When a similar “other-dimension-spigot-opening” accident happened to one of my former REIKI students at a Psychic Fair during her own exploratory attunement with a gifted-but-integrity-challenged person that she had encountered, I was able to calm her down and talk her through it, primarily because of what I had gone through myself. Meaning: If you venture too far from shore during your personal explorations, you may need someone to help guide you back home.
So yes, it’s a strange world out there—and an even stranger world in here—up there—or wherever our minds actually are, because even THAT is in question—the actual location of ‘the mind,’ not the brain.
The brain is in your skull—the mind is ….well, that one is a matter of opinion because we may be more like tiny satellite terminals tapped into an unfathomable mainframe, rather than stand-alone PCs moving about our daily lives. No one definitively states that possibility as ‘TRUTH’ right now. But it has been frequently ‘suggested’ by many who are able to expand their consciousness beyond normal limits.
So my own thoughts on this entire subject are that if someone tells you: “You are crazy,” whether or not you are more psychically receptive than most others, I would simply smile at the person and say:
“Thank you! I work very hard at it.”
