Hello, My Name Is Majic, And I'm A Tree Psychic!

I'd like to point out just one thing before anyone continues reading, posting, and supporting this topic:
(Say this outloud and think rationally about the following statement)
"Im a tree psychic!"
I said it, and now I don't feel ashamed anymore.
This thread is coming to symbolize much more than the issue of “tree psychics” (in this case, I see “clairsentience” as being a fancy name for
empathy, by the way).
What's going on here is important, because this thread is serving as a warning to people who may want to discuss things that most people would
This Is The Paranormal Studies Forum!
This is precisely
the kind of thing this forum is for. dollmonster
is on topic
. Posts in this thread about things other than
being a “tree psychic” or “clairsentient” and the underlying spiritual implications of them are off topic.
just pulling our leg? Maybe, I don't know. But more importantly, I don't care, because it doesn't matter.
The topic is still a legitimate one for this forum, and the discussion surrounding it can
be worthwhile, if certain members can overcome the
impulse to be juvenile about it.
This form of empathy is not a new concept. Every aboriginal people on earth -- including the ancestors of “modern” cultures -- has practiced some
form of Animism or Paganism and embraced ideas that are no less strange than this one: that all living things are spiritually connected.
Here's a hint: if a belief is found in every culture, that means it is probably inherent to human beings. That means it is important.
If you want to point fingers at someone for being a “tree psychic”, be sure to go around ridiculing aboriginal people for believing in
That is, by the way, the exact sort of spiritual chauvinism that I'm seeing here, and I'm not impressed.
The Hazards Of Stepping Forward
I see this “tree psychic” business as kind of cute because of the thread title, but the underlying subject is 100% valid.
The reason I'm jumping all over this thread is that I know what it feels like to have people brand me as a troll for daring to post things that defy
A year ago, I was posting things to this forum that make “tree psychic” seem more mainstream than Christianity. I personally
know how hard
it can be to overcome the inhibition to talk about things that sound “crazy” to other people.
Want something “crazy” to poke fun at? Check these threads out:

And most recently, if you want something bizarre to listen to and get a chuckle out of, you can check out my podcasts on all that in the
forum, starting with:
Majic's Big Adventure Vol 1
The Point Of The Exercise
People have branded me with all kinds of labels for talking about that stuff, but I know for a fact that I am being as honest about my experiences as
I possibly can be.
Does that mean it's true? No. It just means I'm honestly reporting what I have experienced.
Maybe if enough people do that, we might see some patterns emerge and possibly even Deny Ignorance.
People come to ATS looking for answers. In order to find them, especially in cases like these where public attitudes are so damn ignorant
close-minded, people need to be able to speak freely without fear of being taunted by a bunch of childish schoolyard bullies.
It is essential to the purpose and integrity of this forum that members be able to post honestly without being ridiculed or shouted down.
I invite those who cannot comprehend the importance of this to either read quietly and do their laughing offline or seek entertainment elsewhere.
