I need your help

Dear Brandi,

I need your help. I'm 18, in Australia and for the last year, I've been experiencing momentary visions, along with a strange feeling of deja vu, even though I know I haven't seen these things before. Also, when these visions hit me, I feel dizzy, and nauseous, and certain places on my body feel very hot.

Am I crazy? Or sick? Or is it something else?

I'm sorry to bother you, but I don't know who to ask. I just need some clarification because its starting to scare me.

Thank you so much for your time,


Dear JR,

Dizziness, nausea, and hot flashes are all common side-effects of certain kinds of psychic experiences. I am not a psychiatrist, nor am I a doctor ... but I will say you don't sound crazy at all on the basis of what you have told me here, just a little stressed out, which is totally understandible. I do think you should have both these possibilities ruled out, if for no other reason than to ease your mind and turn the anxiety down. I might not mention the "Deja Vu" feelings to the family doctor, and if you are not depressed or having panic attacks, I wouldn't worry about your mental health at this point.

On the other hand, I do think the content of the visions has some bearing on your well being, honestly. If they are scary, hostile, or depressing, even if they are absolutely verified as involving a psychic experience, they do reflect your mental state. If you are feeling depressed or anxious, do talk to your doctor about these feelings! These can be symptoms of physical illnesses, and you need to be sure to rule these out or have them treated. The healthier you are overall, the stronger, more useful and more positive your visions will get.

The best advice on the psychic side that I have is to meditate every day, to regularly ground yourself, and to keep a regular journal of these kinds of experiences so that you can look back on them with more clarity in the future. Pay strong attention to those Deja Vu experiences - in my personal experience, they are often connected to past lives, and what you can learn from them is invaluable!

Journal-keeping is vital to your personal and psychic growth. You can go back over time and check the details. You'll find that you remember some things differently a week, month or year down the line. It is really helpful in so many ways. It will prove to you that you are seeing something "real", and where your blind-spots are. It keeps things grounded.

These are all symptoms of temporal lobe epilepsy.

That's possible, and all medical issues should be explored and worked out ... as I said in my reply. These are all symptoms of many possible physical disorders, some of which can be dangerous. But just because in some cases an individual has physical or medical disorder does not necessarily negate the spiritual reality of the visions, either.
