So, how do you know, how can you tell if you’re hallucinating or actually in contact with a spirit or entity that’s communicating something specific to you?
In my personal experience, as a Tarot reader I suddenly “know” or “see” things in my mind (which most of the time have nothing to do with the cards that came up), and I tend to brush off most of it just assuming I must be crazy and that’s it. But the few times when I do tell my querents about it, they always get shocked and confirm what I saw… then I get shocked even more (though also validated) and think “wow, ok, I’m not so crazy… yet” with a sigh of relief.
When it comes to entities in rituals, so far I have only done rituals with Fortuna and the Moon, but I never felt them communicating back to me. They do fulfill all my wishes, and I do show my gratitude with offerings, so I can’t complain, but it doesn’t seem like there’s much of a back and forth communication.
I do use some oracles I have only for them, and it’s usually quite heartwarming feedback that I get from them in my rituals, but then again, I wonder if maybe I’m just crazy and that’s it.
So, I’m curious since in so many threads so many practicioners say the entities they work with communicate back to them. How do you know? How does it happen? How can you stay grounded and not wonder so much about your sanity (as I do)?
