So all those people who claim their diagnosis is false, how much do they actually know about psychiatry?

Here's what so many simply refuse to understand - Spirituality is based on your framework of mental health. Most practitioners aren't really interested in whether someone is Spiritual or not, and for most part they'll accept a person's beliefs. What they're more interested in is where those beliefs are formed, how they come to be formed and how the person is using them. If I had a mental health issue and I told the shrink I was sane/immune because I was Spiritual I'd deserve to be locked up.

There are differences between being psychic and having mental health issues, and a decent psychic would be able to tell psychic from something else. I think you could because of your understanding.

I've also talked to people who had severe mental health issues that had been told by supposed experts that they were mediums - and in this forum. Sometimes hearing voices and seeing 'beings' is not mediumship at all but mental health.

Hearing voices and seeing 'beings' may be a mental health issue or it may be that such people are very sensitive to the non-physical. Such phenomena is quite common in the hypnagogic state, whatever our mental health. But psychiatry does not take non-physical planes into consideration.

You say that "Spirituality is based on your framework of mental health." It is not that we refuse to understand. Maybe we simply don't agree with your perspective.

Peace
