There's no doubt that I get a sense of clarity and warm, good feeling after eating coconut oil, but recently I've been cooking every meal with it and think I'm over dosing. I'm feeling too clear minded and spacey, like I'm floating. Anyone else relate this to eating too much coconut oil?

No, the only side-effects I get from too much coconut is terrible nausea, vomiting and digestive upset.
Coconut oil is a powerful appetite suppressant, and a clear-minded yet spacy-floaty feeling is a commonly reported state during fasting or severe calorie restriction. (I have personally experienced both effects first hand.)
Are you making sure that you're eating enough?
I react strangely to coconut oil and I'm trying to figure out why but for the time being am off of the stuff. It give me brain fog and causes a case of folliculitis I can't shake to flare up hella. The coconut oil I'm using is cold-refined so it shouldn't be a reaction to allergens in the oil. It could be something MCT/liver related but I'm going to go without for a few months then 'll add it back in... Of course the one substance nobody talks ill of, I react poorly to.
My family eats close to a gallon a month. No issues for us.
