I suffered from this back in the 1960s, but back then I attributed it to ingesting too many hallucinogens. This was back in my Pink Floyd days, when I thought that Syd Barrett was a God, or at the very least a genius for spiking his morning coffee with LSD every day. The sparkling white glow has returned and although when I was younger, this was the coolest thing along with the ability to shoot colors out of my fingers, it was such a rush, but now it is annoying. For those of you who are not aware of my condition, Heiligenschein is an optical phenomenon in which a bright spot appears around the shadow of my head in the presence of dew that is caused by diffraction and reflection of sunlight on the dewdrops.
Some people claim that they can see auras while others cannot, and I thought that my condition was the result of psychic powers that enabled me to be special in my own way. I felt this certain elegance having this unknown ability, which might be described as svelte. I have not yet been able to temporize a particular course of action to conform to the circumstances of my condition having returned, but I know that I must deal with this complex issue, otherwise it will never go away. When you are young, it is much easier to bounce back from everything, but at that time I lacked wisdom and I had a tendency to insert irrational thoughts into my problem solving. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get rid of this halo like optical phenomenon that has returned to plague me? Maybe angels are real, because I am seeing these curls of lights around people’s heads. It is getting worse and there is no price tag that is too high for me, as this is starting to affect my speech.
