A lot of good posts, and forgive for my wall of text:
To touch a strong personally point, I had a "parent" who had a mental illness. Gifted person, I would not have consider ill in the past. Due of a mix of christianity, lack of good judgement which attracted wrong type of unbounds and probably some unfortunate circumstances, made her difficult to accept what she saw. Once you lose the grip of reality, your mind wanders off uncontrollably.
A mental discipline and preparation is required with strong experiences. We are lucky that we live in the internet age. Despite being a dump garbage is also full of treasures. One must dig well, and filter throughout everything, to what resonates with us best. A person with a gifted third eye, being born before? Would have bigger difficulties.
The term of demonic, is rather negative. Put God term also here as an example. Both words tainted by history.
New Terminology perhaps is required. In the end however, what matters is to stay safe, but not close minded. Stay open, but be able to choose what is right and what is wrong for you.
About the dark side. We humans should put ourselves in on our best day, and compare it with us on the worst day.
Even we are rather different sides of the same person. Honestly rather scary too.
And that is as individual. I dont even want to think about the whole humanity.
What fascinates me, is that despite being different "species" we are rather similar. Don't we all want acceptance and understanding?
Easy to love when you are nice and all, harder when you are angry and hurt. Unconditional love, is key.
They do fear to be abandoned too, rejected for who they are. One of mine showed glimpses of her true form i think some weeks back, but as she felt I got worried, she stopped. I saw her once partly in the dream. (in a different form however).
For me this spiritual journey, is a lot of about learning, understanding, patience and acceptance. I would not want it any other way. Despite being sometimes frustrated, impatient, and close minded.
There are no coincidences, only choices and results.
