  1. I have just watched John brogan spiritual or psychosis. I have been diagnosed with paranoia psychosis. And in his lecture he was explain me, when your consciousness awakens it hits you like a ton of bricks, your lost into a very dark world the hallucinations are not through your eyes but through thought, Your the trying to understand what’s happening but your reality starts rejecting everything and you start to put every single barrier up because you try to defend your existence and your mind convinces you every single person you encounter is plotting against you. It becomes lonely, very dark to the brink of self destruction, But percieve the physical world different to everybody else. And can see what they can’t. I believe what they won’t and that’s what makes you lose positive energy and you become very weak physically.

    • Hello Brian, thank you for telling us about John Brogan and what his video meant to you, I will look him up. Best wishes – Em, RD
