Creativity vs Psychic?
Fairly new to the blog here (both Erin’s and Steve’s), but reading over the blogs prompted me to ask a question or two.
I’ve never had a blatantly psychic experience although I find such things fascinating – anything that enters into the ‘real mystery’ realm is interesting to me although I tend to take anything I read with a grain of salt at least somewhat. That’s not to say I’m a skeptic, but I do tend approach another person's given psychic or mysterious phenomena with the observation that it could be real – and it may not be.
Some friends and associations have had weird or psychic experiences – I joke a bit that I’m a psychic brick wall. The most I’ve had were some strange or interesting dreams (like one concerning a recently deceased relative).
Anyway, here is my quandary: I like fiction, stories, and games. I am an artist and to a lesser extent a writer, but beyond the creative mediums I use, participation in a story that allows me to make up characters and stories gets my attention. Ever since I was a small child, I would ‘make up cartoons in my head’; even now I find the creation of characters for stories interesting – I almost think in a ‘lucid dreaming’ approach where one can learn things from these fictional, created personas in stories in a way that you couldn’t in real life.
Where does the problem come in?
How do I know, at any given time, that I’m not ‘making something up’? I almost wonder if I have difficulty with myself and meditation, spirit guides, higher self, etc. because of concerns that, with my tendency to play with the imagination a lot, I may just be creating these things myself as I would a story or character.
Are there any ‘creative types’ that have run into problems of this nature?
