Psychic or crazy? 10 ways to tell

How could I tell my therapist I saw dead people? I had a problem, like many new psychics when their psychic abilities open. I needed to make sure I wasn’t going crazy. Was I psychic or crazy?

I decided to find out. My therapist was all science, strictly stats and rats. He understood the isolated childhood and weird ideas, but he stopped cold at connecting to dead people.

Then he asked the one question that cleared everything: Was the spirit presence bothering me?

The Germans have a beautiful word for this:

Weltanschauung. It means the way you see the world. In my world, faerie and spirit exist and I’m OK with that.

In his lovely scientific therapist way, he explained that regardless of his world, he understood spirit was part of mine and not a source of unease or mental stress, and was OK with that. I got my happy stamp of sanity.

It’s healthy to question when first becoming aware of other worlds.

In fact it’s a very sane thing to do. Here’s how to tell:

  1. Spirit appearances are usually, brief, sudden, and flash from the corner of the eye. The ones you do a double take on.
  2. Spirit appearances can stay longer but will go if you tell them – delusions don’t.
  3. Spirit is always respectful, never rude or demanding.
  4. Spirits don’t tell you what to do or suggest things you’d never ever do. They are interested in soul growth.
  5. Spirit never interferes with your day-to-day functioning.
  6. Spirit voices are quick. They manifest suddenly; a phrase or a couple of words. It takes lots of energy for them to come through so they don’t waste it nagging.
  7. However, they can also be a constant running commentary in your head. To someone with clairaudient ability opening up it may seem that way till you get training.
  8. It is the quality of what is said. The negative stuff is never spirit. It’s the ego and the inner critic.
  9. Spirit voices make sense. They are compassionate and feel safe.
  10. Spirit comes out of love and is usually someone who knows you.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
