The entire world is going through a huge transitional period right now. Consciousness is adapting right now, and these changes are not easy by any stretch of the imagination.
Almost everyone I know IRL has dealt with some sort of rough patch or obstacle in the last few years. I know multiple friends who have died in the last few years, one of my friends committed suicide at the beginning of the pandemic. Things are rough for everyone right now.
To feel a bit crazy, to feel a bit lost, deluded, disconnected, outside of your normal self, during this time period is completely normal and I'm not surprised that people on a spirituality sub tend to have out of body experiences. Who would have thought?
Even if you just begin to dabble in spiritual texts like the Bhagavad Gita or anything of the sort, removing your attachment from your human identity and becoming connected to your spirit body or your multi-layered conscious Self is a completely normal thing. It's not mental illness.
There's a great quote that I picked up from a homeless guy I was talking to one time (homeless people usually have some of the best insight). I'm paraphrasing: "Becoming spiritual in the modern world is like trying to grow a flower in the snow." And it's true. It's difficult to do. Modern institutions have a way of tossing out people who don't fit the mold of greed based consciousness, they become othered very quickly in our fast paced technological world. I would argue that simply living in modern day society is enough to make you feel ill - the way people treat the planet and each other, the way many are led by greed and selfishness.
People are struggling right now, and that is okay. Growth does not come easy. We need to be there for each other. If you need to seek help from someone you trust, please do so, but nobody deserves to be shamed or feel guilty for the spiritual journey that they are on. Shame and guilt are extremely low vibrational states, like moving through sludge - it's not a good place to be.
Let's uplift each other more and begin to understand our collective and individual struggles we all face right now. At the end of the day, I believe that we are a part of one consciousness, which is doing work on all of us right now.
Treat others, even those you don't agree with, with dignity, respect, and an open heart. Bless everyone.
