As I have announced some time previous, the upcoming issue of The Next Truth (May) is discussing war traumas, behavioral science, how to help a loved one who is suffering from PTSD, alternative solutions for dealing with PTSD, among others.
During the past two weeks I have spoken with several Neuro-Psychologists and (clinical) Psychologists and read a myriad of articles concerning Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The pro’s and con’s of medical and spiritual healing processes were indeed an interesting topic to discuss as well as trauma being the main cause for a foggy/altered reality. Still, that one particular question seems to be hard to answer; “Is it possible for people to experience unexplained phenomena, aka the paranormal, while being under extreme psychological pressure for a longer period?” (Think of those traumas created by war-, sexual-, domestic violence, kidnapping, among others)
When we think about it for a moment, it is remarkable to see that the brain is, somehow, capable of ‘choosing’ such a vivid form of processing the stress that is accompanied with PTSD. In this it would be an almost logical line of thought that this reality is as real as the sandwich you are eating during lunch. Right?
How do ‘you’ explain this vivid effect what seems to have a tremendous impact on people’s thinking and behaviour?
– 3 till 5 explanations will be published in the issue of May and if that is not cool enough, the person whose answer is published will receive a free PDF version of the May edition. www.magcloud.com
