When dealing with this sort of lucid 3rd eye sort of experience I think the only difference between imagination and reality is how you define it.
What we are dealing with here is someone who is open enough to such experiences. What happened to her could have happened to anyone to lesser or
greater degrees. (giving that it is true obviously)
This is where our differences meet, because this is where it can take two different directions.
A. It can end up being a mental condition if it persists without it being understood and also if it poses a problem, likewise being a product of
B. It can end up being a very great gift or bitter sweet burden depending on the persons demeanor, so long as the subject is brutally honest and
rational with themselves, and has some serious means of learning more of the nature of said happening, like meditation or shamanic ritual or
What I mean by rational, is just to be able to see or know where the lines are supposed to be held by the status quo, yet pursue understanding the
nature of the events anyways. After all, if a person knows what is supposed to be sane, what is the harm in playing with a fantasy if the fantasy
leads insight or teaches you something profound? I can't say that completely applies or does not apply in this case, all I am saying, is, its not
far fetched for those people who have somehow grasped the concept of seeing beyond the variously layered veils of preconditioned perceptions.
I know what I just said sounds ridiculous, but Im serious. There is a very fine line between insanity, imagination and fantasy. Not a line you
want to fool with in this day and age for sure unless you are willing to go all the way. The current state of conditioning can be severely hazardous
if not either completely embraced(numbed), or completely rejected(waking).
The lines are all relative. I believe in western psychology, but only from within the perspective of the conditioning it provides. I believe it
should be applied to those who so wish to entertain its mental construct, but what the OP is dealing with here, is a completely different paradigm of
thought that can either be embraced, or stuffed back into the box.
