Aloha All,
I feel the need to clarify a few things because the issue between whether or not someone is mentally ill or really experiencing psychic gifts has been coming up. Sometimes if you meet someone and they talk about hearing spirit or voices or whoever in their head it is hard to tell if this is due to mental illness or psychic gifts that they are not yet able to control. I am not a doctor, let me make that clear, but I do have a degree in Psychology and many years of being around people with mental illness both personally and in my work experience. I can give some guidelines about how to tell the difference. First of all someone who is truely psychic does not usually experience non-stop annoying voices that berate or belittle them or tell them to hurt themselves, this is a red flag it is mental illness. Second, someone who is truely psychic can learn from a young age to ignore and screen out spirits that they do not want to bother them at inappropriate times. Someone who is a healthy psychic (or a person who goes to one) does not depend on their guides for every little decision in their life. We all have free will and most things we do not even need to ask spirit to help us. For example, “what should I eat for breakfast?” IF you find yourself not being able to make a decision without calling a psychic first that is a problem and you should stop. IF you are constantly hearing voices that will not leave you alone and they are telling you to do bad things or belitting you please get professional help. This is not claraudience or telepathy. ON the other hand if once in a while, you see or hear from someone who is passed or you get strong intuitions that you dont know where they are coming from, you maybe a psychic or medium or both. IF you want to explore these gifts or just need someone to talk to about your experiences I am happy to help. Blessings, Debbie
