When people have their first psychic experience, they often think they are schizophrenic. This is because of the attitude people have when it comes to hearing voices. Television and religious groups have made it appear a negative event resulting into a negative publicity. This makes these people look like they are actually losing their minds hence causing worry and finally resulting in blocking of a higher level or anything psychic useful to help others. It is however sad that people cannot still differentiate between mediums, psychic or schizophrenic. The following are some descriptions that might help.
If you are seeing spirit beings whether in the form of animal thought beings or in human form, first judge what they are telling you. The spirit world has both good and bad people. These bad spirits pass negative comments by using people on earth who are called light workers. Light workers are people who are highly gifted with psychic abilities. Some people are light workers and do not know that they possess this ability while others choose not to use them since they understand the dangers and repercussions of using them. It is normal to get shunned and bullied for what you hear and see. While some people will decide to lock out these images and voices, some will decide to make peace with them and grow up to become psychics.
Most people can hardly distinguish whether they are psychic or schizophrenic. Schizophrenia is a medical term and it defines what we as human beings decide to assume that is occurring in someone. This mostly involves events that are spiritual and psychic in nature. Schizophrenia allows the person to judge and forcefully reject what they are told which is negative in nature. They do this in order to block the takeover by the dark spirits harassing them. Schizophrenic symptoms often make the person feel overwhelmed and manipulated. For an adult, this might be quite easy since it causes them to reaching a decision majorly based on their own ideals but a child the situation is different. This is especially worse for a child who is trying to explain their circumstances to someone who does not understand anything about schizophrenic or psychic. The child will be treated like they are sick causing them to be more reluctant to divulge about their spirit friends. In the long run the child becomes alienated from the world and tries to lead a double life, one privately with their earthly friends and the other separately with their spirit companions. However, it should be remembered that amongst these spirit companions exist the kind ones and the cruel ones.
Some of these people with psychic abilities use their abilities to channel their spirit guides and help heal and solve problems of others. This might feel good and in most cases, people develop the ego that they possess some supernatural powers. However, the dangers of becoming a medium is that once you are used to channeling your spirit, and being a medium, this will eventually weaken your life force energy. Just like giving power to external things or people, this also weakens the person. It will eventually come to stage whereby you will start to hallucinate and will henceforth need a psychiatric intervention.
Therefore, if you are still wondering whether you are a medium, psychic or schizophrenic, try to ascertain the kind of message being passed to you and what you do with it will surely help you differentiate the three instances.
