Why the hesitancy in sharing a personal paranormal experience? Fear of being labeled "crazy".

“our life a short pilgrimage, the interval between emergence from original oneness and sinking back into it!” - C.G. Jung, Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 5: Symbols of Transformation

An encounter with the Holy Spirit during a Holotropic Breathwork training session created an entirely new framework from which to view reality. As you might expect, it took some time to integrate the experience but a doorway opened.

Bio: Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD is the Director of the Center for Children of Alcoholics, Inc. in Red Bank, New Jersey.  She has shared her clinical expertise for thirty years in private practice and by lecturing on dysfunctional, addictive homes, dissociation, and grief and loss from a Jungian perspective. She is currently researching the potential benefits of mediumship, knowing that grief is primarily resolved when the bereaved can recognize their continuing spiritual bonds with the deceased.

Author of 3 books: Psychology of the Soul and the Paranormal: Discover why you get good ideas in the shower. And other important facts about your spiritual body, Amazon, You're Not Finished Yet and Grandma, What Is a Soul?

About the shower inspiration = Karen says:
"We get good ideas in the shower because we are in a standing meditation position #1 and #2 our guardian angel, spiritual guides or deceased relatives can send us good ideas through the vagus nerve and usually we hear these ideas at the back of our neck."

Outstanding recommendation from Michael E. Tymn (Michael's Website), author of this Amazon Reader Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars Transpersonal Psychology 

[Edited] Author Karen Herrick is not your garden-variety psychologist – the kind that believes all of psychology must fit into the narrow boundaries accepted by mainstream reductionist and rationalistic science. As a transpersonal psychologist, she delves into the spiritual underpinnings of human behavior in this book, offering her views on various kinds of paranormal and mystical phenomena and how they relate to the development of our personalities and the evolution of our souls.

As a foundation for transpersonal psychology, Herrick refers to the works of pioneering psychologists William James and Carl Jung. Her many lectures throughout the United States on dysfunctions, addictions, dissociation, and grief are delivered from a Jungian perspective. “Jung felt that psychic reality, which is knowing beyond the psyche or mind and physical or rational processes that are known and/or understood, would be the most important achievement of modern psychology if only it would be recognized.”
