What is Psychosis?

I submitted a research paper on the subject of psychosis using narratives. I have been postponing the idea of it because I felt people weren’t really ready to listen to the possibility of psychosis being something else.

But now individuals are asking because they are allowed to make sense of their madness and not brush it aside as mere symptoms. It should be a given and not something ‘allowed’ because everyone else with any other ‘illness’ does the same too.

I write this not from a place of authority but from what is given to me from the spiritual world. The accessibility to such knowledge and decoding it is what I also called the patience of a spiritual warrior. Everything comes in time.

“A common question I’ve been asked regarding seeing spirits, shadows or negative visual hallucinations that seem to be very distressing…my answer:
They are mostly manifestations of a particular negative thought or emotion which is being held on to by a memory that keeps being triggered or it is presently occurring. Like always, it’s a defence mechanism making one confront the issue/trauma.
After accepting it for what it is it will slowly reduce and eventually wean away. Then begins the next step of confronting other people’s negative energy you would begin picking up and manifesting as your own.
And after ruling these both out and opening yourself to the idea of manifestations, you will be open to accepting the ethereal in your life.
These processes can often occur together clouding your judgement, reality and awareness of multiple existences. This is what becomes ‘psychosis’ because you react to it. If one does not react to it but simply observes and let it pass through – the needed manifestation of your true intention will surface.
However, many don’t get there because of social and self stigma. And the fact that we are told that psychosis is wrong, is something bad, and must not be experienced at all. Then again you will not find the solution to your problem if you don’t fully experience it and rely on the opinions of those who have never experienced it and merely react out of their own given set of stigma and discrimination
