Most people who experience the other side are told that this is imagination. Childhood play and art show how our minds are shaped. When we first learn to color, we color outside the lines. As we get older and mature, we use the lines to limit where we put the color.
The more we emphasize the border the stronger our boundaries are. This can be positive, morals are considered boundaries. What we are taught is truth is also a boundary, believing Angels exist is not discussed socially, this boundary is difficult for me.
As I learned education and psychology, I noticed that I have anxiety about using lines. Being a medium and empathic, many things people do and say are limited. When studying to become a missionary, I learned about quantum and meta physics. The medical field uses laws that are less mentally limiting.
I did not work toward becoming a medical doctor because I do not like cutting people or animals. Dr. Lewis, Dean of Graduate Studies at Langston University, spent a year challenging my thinking, of course, when I was in school I really got along great with him.
Dr. Doan, a past University of Central Oklahoma Professor of mine, once discussed in a graduate level psychology class, normal dis-associative disorder (non-pathological), and that we all experience this. My mother call this "Auto-Pilot". Like when you have the same route to work everyday and on your day off you start driving to work and you are really on your way to the store. Discerning what is working when a person is thinking about something else is an interesting experience.
