Well I'm new to this sight ad this is actually my first post and i chose this one to post in since this one strike me close to home since I do have several mental disabilities including Bipolar disorder, P.P.D, High functioning Asperger’s and O.C.D.. And i strongly believe that these can cause a more detailed viewing of the world since a lot of time we notice small things that most don't notice.
I personally feel that i have had spiritual encounters in my life and other things that cannot be easily explained but i also feel that I have had encounters with evil entities due to my family telling me of times when i could be sitting on the couch having a good time then become a totally different person and develop a darker personality. I personally don't remember these since it seems that i black out when it happens almost like I’m being suppressed while that energy takes over.
I leave you with this concept i'm intereste din knowing what others think on this topic.
Now I ask this not to put down anybody with a mental illness, cause I have dealt with many people who have had it. But I need to ask…can some reporting of the paranormal be unfounded because of a person's illness?
When we do a client intake for a paranormal investigation, we do look at potential psychological factors that may be contributing to the experience. It's one of those things I've always wondered about – the causality – i.e. could mental illness cause "paranormal" experiences, or do we mistake actual paranormal experiences for mental illness.
I realize (and can see how) that some people who have a hightened awarness to the paranormal could be considered mentally ill especially to people that aren't opened to the possibility of the paranormal. And I'll be open to the fact that some conditions can help with the paranormal. Unfortunatly there are some people who suffer from one mental illness or another that things they see simply are not there. And the distinctions can be tricky.
I certainly see many good thoughts here, and leanings toward an answer to mental illness so to speak. I personally must say I do not feel they are interwined, one is genetic and the other is psychic or someone who is able to communicate on a higher level. Any type of mental interference (not particularily bi-polar) which can be chemical I believe interfers with the psyche and ability to sufficiently function.
I almost feel that mental illness because of the genetic profile or damage leaves someone not quite here on this plane which is why you will find them sometimes functioning as a normal person and sometimes just not complete.
Everyone has psychic ability, we all know this its a matter of levels and understanding of self. Some have a great abilty to use their brain as its mapping out in that higher dimensional, any mental illness would not have that ability.
I have no background, scientific or otherwise, that would let me make an educated decision one way or another on this topic. But in my opinion, it's an interesting theory. Like NYPDretired, my father was also a cop for a while and according to him you do see some strange things from time to time that really are unique and make you wonder.
