Not sure it’s a delusion, i work in a hotel and there are spirits in every room, some peaceful, others evil and possessive, it is a difficulty working here at the moment…trying to capture them in my drawings and paintings so they don’t take over…

I used to feel possessed by people. Won’t say who though, but people.

Used to feel like that with demons.
One time I thought my stomach was going to explode and so I just layed on the floor and they just kept shaking me strongly for hours.
My dad thought I was into something satanic.
Felt them inside me thought I had to puke them up to get rid of them. And so I did.

It happened more than once. Cuz I kept believing this was all possible.

Anyway now I know demons arnt real so that doesn’t happen anymore.

The power of belief on someone with psychosis is truly powerful.

For me, the spirit world is more real than what is known as reality, there are multiple realities, as a teenager, demons tried to force me to kill my stepdad but i resisted in a great struggle, one demon wanted me to kill myself and tortured me nightly until They put me in a hospital, demonic forces overwhelmed me later, thousands screaming at me, they wanted me to do evil and i watched myself carry out part of their plan, but injured myself And was placed in a hospital for a month, they are always intent on evil, in the rooms they hide

Many psychiatrists and other mental health professionals have delusions that the spirit world doesn’t exist, they are in denial, we are treated as guinea pigs for the multimillion dollar drug corporations who are in league with them to create compliant zombies who are no longer freethinking, freethinkers are dangerous

Sometimes I do. At one time I believed I was. However, no longer :slight_smile:

When and how did you learn of what a demon is? Likely through your upbringing. That’s cultural programming. When you let go of it. It eventually fades. It’s a slow process.

Sometimes I wonder. I can’t help but think the voices were demons. They just seemed so real and not like myself.

Indeed our culture has much to do with perception, the spirit world may be denied but for me, it is all too real, in the Native American culture we would be shamans and would go on vision quests, my love has Native American on her mothers side and have studied much of their culture, assimilation is key for all cultures, while different, are the same

I don’t, after I started Sarcosine, I feel like I’ve been liberated from something like the Borg for the first time in my life, that repressed my humanity.

It’s not working for me…

That’s unfortunate. I guess it’s another case of body chemistry being different for each of us. :frowning:

I was likely possessed not schizophrenic. I was under a spell. It was because of my sins. My symptoms are outside the mainstream of science. Whatever I have zyprexa helps take it away. Although I have picked up a tremor because I had to go up on my dose.

Actually, yes. But not by some mystical spirit or demonic invader. I just notice every once in a while that I am under the influence” of the influences (in-flow-ences), authority, conditionings, teachings, socializations, and habituations that have become so normal in the cult-ure that I can no longer see, hear or otherwise sense them unless I use a tool to do so.
