Making a Connection between Seizures and the Paranormal
Location of Amygdala in the Brain
Is there even a connection?
From the get go, no. There is no connection between a seizure and the paranormal.Having a seizure, can mess with your temporal lobe, which many people believe make you more sensitive to paranormal activity. Seizures cause on electric shock through out the brain, which messes inside your temporal lobe, a place called the amydale. The Amydala is a almond shaped gatherings of nuclei located deep inside the Medial Temporal Lobe. Amydala are found in any complex brain of vertebrates. The basic role of the Amydala is to process memories of emotional reactions. They are part of the Limbic System, the inner border of the cortex of the brain. Neuropsychologists (scientist who study the psychological function of the brain) have suggested that your temporal lobe, or maybe even the amydala, is what connects us to more advanced emotions, such as paranormal activity. It is said, when the electric charge goes through your brain, in almost "activates" the nuclei in the temporal lobe. For some, nothing changes, and nothing occurs. For more spiritual people, this can open you to another world. This has been said to happen in almost any age. From toddlers, to middle age people. Some of the cases have had only one seizure. Some have had a couple, and others have had them their whole life. Some start having paranormal happenings right after the first seizure and they quit. Others, are bothered daily by not only their medical issue, but other "beings".
Scientist can only pinpoint in the brain, where -if even- we can connect to the Paranormal mentally and emotionally. So, the question, "is their a connection between seizures and paranormal activity?" will remain unanswered by scientists. As for everyone else, the answer only can be held in your own opinion. If interested, just out my experience, and opinion below!
If you have read any of my other hubs, you would know, I am very intuitive with the paranormal.
I can't exactly say I have, "powers", but I can hear and see things. I also have feelings and smells that I can't describe while I see and hear these things. I have been living with this from a young age, and learned to deal with it on my own until I got older.
Before hand: My sister is 11 years old, and had her first Grand Mal Seizure on January 31, 2011. We have no history of seizures or epilepsy in our family, even dating way back. She continued to have seizures through out this whole year. Finally after several medications, doctors, blood work and hospital visits, they could control her seizures. After her 5 day stay with the Children's Hospital in D.C, they were able to figure out a perfect dosage and medication for her. Since June she has had no more seizures.
In October 2011, I finally turned 19. As happy as I was, November didn't like this happiness. On November 2, 2011 I had a Grand Mal seizure, at home right as I lay down for bed. Again, no family history except for my sister, and no known reason. They did the typical, cat scan.. blood work.. and sent me home. Two weeks later, on November 22, I had another Grand Mal seizure. This one leaving me more confused, and unable to talk for a while. On the way to the hospital, in the ambulance, I had another.. petite seizure. This time they placed me on Dilantin, an anti-seizure medication. This is when I started having more.. intuitiveness.
I started hearing things more. Seeing things more. Normally I would see them face to face. People who looked faded, but real. Who would talk, or communicate with a voice in my head. Now, they were seeming to be out of the corner of my eye, or in a distant room. I saw shadows, things dashing from one end to the other, voices traveling from a distance. I would always extend my welcome, and would offer friendship, spiritually and vocally. I feel as if they are not friendly, but not dangering either. As if, they want me to know they are there.. but didn't want to communicate. I've never dealt with this before..
I have had some other seizures since then, and everything remains the same. The "come and go" people travel around me almost all the time. When out in public, I also see the normal sightings, the ones I've seen since I was little. I think it's interesting.I've never had these extra sightings, until after my seizures. Connection there? possibly. possibly not.
Whats also is interesting: My sister, has never been able to see, hear or predict anything. She has never experience anything of the sort. She can now go to a grave, and without looking at the stone, or facing it, she can touch a tombstone and state their name, age and sex. We've done several trials, and she seems to get it. Even if we make her walk up behind the stone, she can still recite it. Sometimes she can even describe a feeling or being. I find it rather amazing. She never had this until her seizures started.
Leave me comments, and questions!
I want to hear if you guys have every experienced anything like this, or if you know of someone who has. I would find it very interesting to talk to someone who started having "paranormal" experiences after seizures, but not before. Please feel free to tell stories, I love it!
