You do not need parental permission but it is your choice.
Oh dear, quite a lot going on there. Relax and tell your mother to relax also. Respect her whatever you do, as she’s finding this difficult to deal with.
No harm in seeing a Gp, explain to your Gp, at least that will rule out what she thinks is wrong. The thing is nobody on here knows what the exact situation is in your household, so if we say do this, do that, it may make things worse. You need to talk to somebody like Basics of Sikhi or Sikh helpline.
It’s ok to recite Gurbani in front of her if that’s what she wants. Don’t your family go to the Gurdwara at all? If your not confident in reciting in front of her, then play some audio of a shabad or Gurbani and sing/recite along with it. Then the alien won’t appear.
Hanji, Penji I'm always japping Waheguru no matter what I'm doing for well over half the day and I'm not going to stop anyway. Nothing stops for me it just makes it a lot harder and I hope Maharaj can do kirpa on daas - I have no power at all.
Sangat Ji, not 15 minutes ago did my mum have this crazy talk with me and these are some of the topics highlighted that she was speaking to me about. Some of the questions she started asking was like "do you dream about god?" "Can you see god?" She thinks I'm turning into some alien. I really don't know what to do. This is not the only test. The family one is a constant one but Maharaj tests me literally every single minute of everyday and that's not even a joke. It's getting so hard and unbearable but I won't lose faith in sikhi ever. It's really getting so tough and it's been like this for about 2 months.
