Are Comedians Crazy?

I would say comedians are conditioned to think faster than most with the normal pinch of insanity thrown in for good measure. As with anyone in the creative and performing arts, they can have the genetic code for mental illness and addiction. We know how that pattern winds up. Comedy comes from dialoguing with one or more humorous spirits. Does your so-called "spirit guide" make you laugh? Z is hilarious most of the time - a "pain in the ass" the rest of the time - and extremely powerful when he needs to be.

I love comedy as most people who know me can tell you - placing humor high on the list of emotional healing tools. I loved doing stand-up in a club in the city years ago.

So there I was folks ... last Saturday afternoon talking to a very normal female client, a teacher, white, 25, beautiful, from a good family, whose brother, Jeremy, at age 21 in university, became psychotic, heard voices in his head, tried to deal holistically to no avail, and in front of their mother jumped out of a window and died one year ago. Jeremy's spirit came to visit me before my client and her BFF - also having a reading - showed. he was humorous and so "present". not all spirits are.

When the girls showed up, i sat them down on the couch, told them to turn on the iPhones - as the 3 of us - make that 4 - talked to and about Jeremy. It is amazing to see their awareness of his presence and affirmation of what he said. Jeremy was brilliant, well loved, and a great guy. By the time we finished talking - though he did partake in the readings and may have left messages on the audio cassette tapes I use during the reading - we all felt a bond. The girls were able to sense his presence and departure - a bit of psychic development along the way, so easily obtained in today's reality frequencies.

Among the topics we all discussed - personal and general - was psychosis and how one hears voices. And so I joked, "I have been hearing spirits voices most of my life" - but this comes from a different part of the brain. Jeremy refused medications - because as most people who suffer from schizophrenia - have tried to self medicate only to get lost in that world and hopefully recovering. Jeremy had a psychotic split as his brain (computer) misfired and he took his life. Thoughts of suicide had preceded the incident. In the case of psychosis, one must be on controlled medication. People can follow holistic regimes, but the brain circuitry needs to be balanced with meds until we find another solution. Further ... psychosis begins at age 19-21 and is usually preceded by other warning signs of abnormal behavior tag begin in puberty when the hormones and brain changes though not fully developed until age 21 when symptoms physically manifest.

Back to comedy and hearing voices ... they play in our heads all the time as we dialogue with spirits - whether we know it or not. You read this blog therefore you can use what you "hear" in any manner that filters through your emotions. For me, it's funny. For those with emotional problems, it is serious and often deadly. Bottom line ... it's all in your program codes. Not much you can do about it.

Comedians have high levels of psychotic traits   BBC - January 16, 2014
Comedians have personality types linked with psychosis, like many other creative types, which might explain why they can entertain, researchers claim. The questionnaire was also completed by 364 actors - another profession used to performing - as a control group, and by a group of 831 people who worked in non-creative areas. The researchers found that comedians scored significantly higher on all four types of psychotic personality traits than the general group, with particularly high scores for both extroverted and introverted personality traits.

The four aspects measured were:

Unusual experiences (belief in telepathy and paranormal events)

Cognitive disorganization (distractibility and difficulty in focusing thoughts)

Introvertive anhedonia (reduced ability to feel social and physical pleasure, including an avoidance of intimacy)

Impulsive non-conformity (tendency towards impulsive, antisocial behavior.
