Introduction: This article includes information regarding the catalyst whereby individuals use their emotions or drugs to temporarily use or enhance their psychic ability instead of using proper analysis and exercises.
Your ability works best in certain conditions and figuring out what these conditions are should be your utmost primary focus. Knowing what patterns and conditions allow you to use your ability will in time create a predictable ability you can use at will when the conditions are right. Nine times out of ten the answer to the question “why can I only perform my ability some of the time” is because conditions are constantly changing around you. If you do not know what conditions your ability works best with you can not control the conditions and therefore you can not control your ability.
Emotions are unpredictable so if you use emotions as your catalyst your ability will always be unpredictable as well. Creating certain strong emotions to perform your ability requires focusing on memories in which invoke strong emotions such as rage. The problem with this is that reliving moments in which invoke rage, or any other strong emotion, causes the desensitization of those emotions. In time those memories will not invoke the same strong emotions they once did. This leaves you with out your catalyst unless you absolutely plan on having a life where you will have a continual supply of bad things happening to you. This also is not a good catalyst for your ability because emotional stress hinders your capability to control your ability. To control an ability you must first have control over yourself. Therefore, using emotions as your catalyst will guarantee you no enhancement or worse, reduce your current level and control. When an ability is produced during an emotional moment it is to be seen as a side effect not an ability.
An ability is something you can control to a certain degree, not accidentally, and in some cases side effects are not even part of your ability. What I mean by this is that many side effects can not be produced by those who have their ability in control because side effects are signs that their ability is out of control (example: increased static electrical discharge for Telekinetics). Side effects are harmful and attempting to enhance a side effect defies reason. Invoking emotions to control an ability may not have harmful effects on your immediate health, but they will long term. Emotional stress leads to physical stress and when your mind and body are unbalanced you will start to see the physical signs.
Physical signs can include:
* Back pain
* Change in appetite
* Chest pain
* Constipation or diarrhea
* Dry mouth
* Extreme tiredness
* General aches and pains
* High blood pressure
* Insomnia (trouble sleeping)
* Palpitations (the feeling that your heart is racing)
* Sexual problems
* Shortness of breath
* Stiff neck
* Upset stomach
* Weight gain or loss
Stress can lead to a lower immune system rendering you susceptible to colds and other infections. This imbalance can also lead to alcohol and drug abuse in later years if not addressed sooner. Continued stress can lead to acute and chronic periods of depression and anxiety as well. Please, do not put your mental and physical health at risk by using emotions as your catalyst.
Drugs Are Never the Answer
I have never and will never condone the use of drugs such as hallucinogens for ability enhancement. Drugs are a contradiction to enhancement because drugs can cause decreased motivation, prolonged depression, anxiety, increased delusions and panic, and psychosis while enhancement requires a clear mind and healthy body. Using drugs to attempt to enhance will only result in an unstable mind and an unbalanced mind is not capable of successful enhancement.
“To control an ability you must first have control over yourself.”
Using drugs to enhance and ability is similar to using emotions to control it. Enhancement during drug use is usually as short lived as your high. While you may feel your ability escalating during a high with drugs such as ecstasy, marijuana, mushrooms, LSD, DXM etc this is primarily due to the fact that drugs change the way the brain interprets time, reality, and the environment around you leading you unable to perceive things rationally or correctly. In the instance an ability is actually elevated due to drug use, the ability will retract back to it’s normal state almost immediately after your high is lost. To enhance your ability through drug use you would have to stay on a drug continuously and indefinitely whereby risking a life time of severe side effects or risking fatality.
Case Study on the Effects of Hallucinogens and Mediums
I personally know a Medium who conducted a self study, against my wishes, regarding the long term effects of Mediumship abilities and hallucinogenic drugs. This medium remained on a trip’ for exactly one year straight induced by a synthetic hallucinogenic drug. The medium would take certain dosages of the synthetic drug day and night to keep the trip going. In one years time the medium never came down from the trip. The trip was fluctuated between extreme on the weekends to moderate during the week. The medium did not have a job to worry about loosing though family issues arose quite often. Even after being on a trip for an entire year the medium did not report any noticeable difference ability wise. What the medium did experience is severe side effects from the beginning of the study until almost six years after the study. This medium today still feels “boxed in and strung out” and has difficulties with everyday tasks. The medium did report an enhanced ability while on the drug, but only mild. This mild enhancement disappeared after the drug was stopped almost immediately.
Fatal Side Effects
The immediate side effects of drugs can become chronic if drug use persists and in some cases you may never be able to resolve the side effects. The use of some drugs can lead to an increase in heart rate and blood pressure and some can even put you can in a coma. They can also cause heart and lung failure. The use of drugs may change the way you feel emotionally. They may cause you to feel confused, suspicious, and disoriented. Many PCP users are brought to emergency rooms because of PCP overdose or its disturbing psychological effects, including delusions and paranoia. The effects of drugs vary from time to time and person to person, so there is no way to know how much self-control you might maintain. They can cause you to mix up or slur your speech, lose control of your muscles, make meaningless movements, and act in irrational, aggressive, or violent ways which could lead to legal issues that will haunt you for the rest of your professional life. Many drugs used for so-called “psychic enhancement” are illegal to buy, sell, or possess. Hallucinogenic drugs distort your perception of reality.
Hallucinogens cause your sense of space and time to become distorted and cause you to see objects that aren’t really there. The body can quickly form a tolerance to drugs, so a person would have to take more and more of the drug for the same effect. This is very dangerous because taking stronger doses of any drug may cause severe side effects, including overdose. Hallucinogens can cause flashbacks. Effects of the drugs, including hallucinations, can occur weeks, months, and even years after use. There is no way to predict a “bad trip or high.” There is no consistency in the dosage of most street drugs, so each “trip or high” may differ depending on the drug’s strength and purity. Many street drugs are fake leaving you with no high and no money. Other street drug potencies are unpredictable and therefore can lead to overdose.
Drugs in Many Shapes and Forms
Those taking street drugs for the enhancement of an ability are only setting themselves up for disappointment. Those taking prescription drugs, especially for severe conditions, are not ideal for the enhancement process. Those who smoke cigarettes very regularly or are addicted to caffeinated substances are also not ideal. The mind needs to be sharp, clear and clean to enhance successfully. Your body is a temple, a temple with great potential, so treat it like a temple or you will only be creating obverse reactions then you initially intended.
The only way to successfully enhance your ability and control it long term is through analysis. Awareness and problems solving skills are required to figure out what conditions your ability work best with. Awareness and problem solving skills are hindered during drug use and during periods of unbalanced emotions. Sobriety and emotional stability are promising conditions for the enhancement of any and all abilities. You do not have to live like a monk to enhance your ability, but that is not to say you shouldn’t at least try.
