There is a psychological method called "emotional freedom technique" (EFT), where the subject taps certain meridians on the head and chest while voicing positive affirmations, and it is gaining a wide following. It is a sort of reprogramming using words to access distorted patterns in the body. It actually works (I have only used it for pain relief, but thousands of people testify to it).
Anyway, the view on the corresponding sites is that your reality is dependent on the "writing on your wall". The rational is that negative experiences are caused by internal bias engrammed in the nervous system. Relieving physical conditions, trauma and depression is one thing. Somehow, however, the "tap all your problems away" mentality seems like a sort of cop-out to me.
The thing is, these people do claim immunity from psychotics, since they simply come up with an affirmation and then tap on their face and chest, and all is well. Again, I tried this (and of course the creators of the system and therapists say that unless you buy a ton of videos and DVD's you will not properly learn the method), and I used the simple free directions because the method is simple. Having done a lot of bioenergetic work and meditation, the results felt strange to me. I do not trust the method because it seems to bypass the magnetic center somehow routing the mind directly into the instinct center through the meridian points. Anyway the site is www.emofree.com

I do not believe the EFT people are psychotics or disturbed people (just people in pain who found a way to relieve it), however, while Melissa feels threatened because she believes those that do not believe as she does are creating a negative reality that she is forced to inhabit. This is funny, because if she really believe she creates her own reality, she would not feel so threatened.
As for the "you create your own reality" (YCYOR) philosophy, I do believe there is a correlation between what is going on inside us and what is going on outside us (as within so without). Accepting Grace, as it were, is the guaraneed safest way to go as far as not getting deluded, in my view. I met a lot of people who interpreted the YCYOR doctrine in terms of what they called "Conscious Command", meaning "order reality to do what you want". At the other extreme is fatalism. Both extremes are manipulative (fatalisms because usually someone manipulates the fatalist with a fatalist doctrine).
If you think about it psychopaths are trying to apply the YCYOR doctrine by presenting an external (psychotic) reality and trying to make people adopt it internally (as without so within). Whether YCYOR is true or not, it has been abused, and the advice of the C's to disregard such notions is correct. What kind of reality do we have when a bunch of people are creating contradictory and/or competing realities?
