Is there a word

Is there a word to describe using extreme negative emotions to channel psychic activity? I’m trying to explain the concept to a friend and I’m not sure what to call it

What are you doing with it once you channel it?

I think you are thinking of bird. Bird is the word.

Hypothetically? Anything. But I’m most worried about creating synthetic ghosts

3 words should do: Need More Haldol.

My pdoc said he doesn’t prescribe Haldol :wink:

Do you mean channeling it for good, or ill?

Yes, for good or ill. But it’s the actual concept that I’m having trouble finding a word for. I’m starting to think I might have to invent a new one

So which is it? For good… Or for ill? Shamanism Springs to mind, but I’m not sure this forum is the place to discuss it

What if you filled yourself with a good spirit instead ?

That’s what I’ve been trying to do, but unfortunately negative emotions are much more powerful. I think that’s just the way we’re wired.

Find something that can help you be more positive like practising a mantra or reading uplifting material. We need help.

That’s the great battle were called to in life. Conquering evil thoughts by replacing them with good ones and good actions.

The article on negative bias was quite interesting. I’m sure we can all learn something from it
