I was a former confident Atheist, now turned unexpected Spiritualist after my own Awakening. It's very difficult to discuss this, let alone explain it convincingly, with my science-minded friends. More and more of us are waking up. I'm glad knowledge about this is showing up more and more in our western society.

Seven years on since this was posted and it's still a good lesson. Disability only exists because a society is not equipped to deal with the differences and variety in humans.

You are not crazy, you will know who you are within divine timing. Be kind to yourself and be kind to others.

When he mentioned the two women, one about to return to the spirit world and one just coming from the spirit world it hit me - 🤯 that’s why I’ve always been drawn to young children, the elderly, and those with special needs. They’re closest to the spirit world!

This has happened to me throughout my life. My 12 year old daughter introduced me to spirituality, she saved me & her sister. I believe she was sent to "open our minds!" Thank you for this most important TED talk.

Psychological crisis is exactly what led to my Spiritual Awakening! I survived narcissistic abuse!

ive been in the mental hospital before. and i must say that most of the people diagnosed with "psychosis" or "schizophrenia" or even "bipolar disorder" were actually VERY spiritual people VERY in-sync with Spirit and the Universe. most of them weren't crazy. ive been thru spiritual stuff as well and people labeled me as "crazy". just thought i'd give my input.

I have had depression for 20+ years. I berated myself for it. I kept thinking that I need to pull myself out of the hole. Finally, not long ago, I put out a call to the Universe asking for help and healing. Since then, I have been receiving guidance. I was guided to this talk. Each step is part of my healing journey.

This video was posted literally when I was hospitalized for 2 weeks for psychosis and I am finding it now. Gave me chills.

I had my major awakening at 15 and was extremely lucky to have an older medium friend who guided me to a spiritualist church where I developed and learned to control my abilities. I had been talking to angels since I was a kid and the things they were telling me were coming true. Definitely not psychosis. Had I told anyone else what was going on with me I probably would have been committed for it!

This video was posted in 2014 and it's amazing to think about what has went on with the Human Experience since then (now in 2021) and how many people have experience their Spiritual Awakening in this time. It's so common now we are mostly free to talk publicly about it and the field of Psychology is slowly recognizing it as a real thing.

I was misdiagnosed with Bipolar disorder because of my "spiritual connection to the universe" at 19 in 2000. I live in the religious South, where speaking of "energy", "connection" and "the universe" is crazy speak. I started meditating at age 5. I had always had a very emotional and physical connection to nature. Because of all this, I was put on medication for years. Now at age 35, trying to get off medication is making me physically ill. It's a lonely and scary experience here. I make art to try and explain the anguish, but again....the American south is afraid of the emotion behind it. I've longed for sisters and brothers that understand. The only way that I can connect through others is via social media and videos like this.

I’ve been on a Spiritual journey for a year. I had a massive awakening in late 2021, and let me tell you, we are all devine and we are all one. Individuated aspects of the one and only thing in existence ❤️love yourself, which in turn others will feel your love. All life matters

This is a great talk and a great video. Unfortunately it's hard for me to watch. Last year I had a very severe psychotic manic episode due to bipolar disorder and in the midst of that I found this video. It convinced me I was just going through a spiritual awakening which, while that could be possible, it instilled this extreme confidence in me that nothing was wrong when actually something was very wrong. I ended up being hospitalized after days of just sending every person I knew a link to this video as an explanation for why I was acting "different" whenever someone expressed concern. In my mind I made total sense and thought this video would show everyone how I felt but in actuality all it did was make me look more unstable. Watching this video now for the first time since that happened is bizarre, I mean it's an interesting video but it's crazy to think about how I was watching it multiple times a day, everyday. I don't feel any of the same feelings I felt whe I watched it in my manic state. I don't resonate with it anymore. My experience is probably a very unique one and I'm sure many of the commenters resonating with it are stable and healthy people, but I know there are at least some who may be experiencing a serious psychotic episode watching this and being convinced it's normal. It's not.

I heard a former psychotherapist say the only difference in someone who is schizophrenic and a psychic is grounding. This resonated so much. And Adam, found a place where he could ground and the place held boudaries for him. One has to grow and find their own inner boundaries, so very saddened a meditation place wouldn't re-open their doors to him. Hopefully there are other places that would open their doors for him. This is what I have always believed and happy to hear others speaking it, aloud.

I went through this. Everything connects. I connect to everything. Everything is everything. Everything is love. Awakening. It’s sour, then it’s sweet😊

I’ve been thru this & was all alone. I was overwhelmed & just like the young man said, I kept going deeper into it & finally got scared & derailed. Literally on my knees, begging for it to stop… mind blowing. But, no drugs & I knew I wasn’t crazy. And I had the self aaareness to know better than to go tell ppl who wouldn’t understand & might just tell me I was crazy.

I WOKE UP around 1976, and it has only gotten stronger with the years. The funny thing is that I always thought that "being enlightened" would mean that people looked up to me for it, that I would make friends more easily, that I would be more popular. In fact, it turned out to be just the opposite, and many people resent me for being happy and lighthearted, some hate me on sight, and very few "get me." But it is worth it, because I feel that I have fulfilled my purpose in life, the reason I am here. Now I know what the 11th century Zen master and poet, Tilopa, meant when he wrote: "When you look for it, you cannot find it. When you find it, you can't get rid of it. When you do neither, it's right there."

Always good to know I’m not “crazy” alone. I write, privately. I don’t wish for anyone to take me seriously anymore. When I did try to talk about what I’m feeling spiritually, people get uncomfortable, and quickly change the subject. When I did try to share my writings, they just ignore me. But … all is well … it’s personal, and I fully accept this.
