Real Psychic Experiences

I Hear Voices In My Head, And They're Not Mine


I do not have any mental illnesses, no one had died in my family since I have lived, which is quite amazing, and I have a great life at home. At night though, I hear voices. There not my thoughts's hard to explain, it's like thoughts coming INTO MY head, and it's bit's and pieces, almost like others thoughts. At first I was a little scared, I still am actually, and even though I have been dealing with this for a few months, I still get freaked out every time this happens. At first I also thought it might even be ghosts! That's how realistic the voices sounded. I have sat straight up multiple times and looked around, thinking some one was in my room due to the constant voices.

They talk about simple things, bills, payments, what they had for dinner, what they like to eat and recipes, other peoples lives, gossip. Stuff that's everyday and sometimes, occasionally, a voice will float in that is sad and is crying... But almost in a mental way, like it's not physically crying just yet.

I'm so freaked out, I just don't know what to do.

Usually, I have be in a quite place, then I get relaxed, then the voices float in. It's hard to sleep at all with people talking to mostly themselves! I don't know what to do! It's so... Confusing and weird! I'm really scared! Can anyone help me out at all? I feel almost embarrassed, but I don't think anyone could really understand me in my family.

I have posted other stories about some OTHER experiences in which people have suggested me have ESP, and also said I had an OBE. I don't know if this matters but I added it just in case. Please help?

My whole thing with this is that I have conversations with the voices in my head. I have come to realize that at any given time, there is a maximum of 34 in my head and a minimum of 0. They are my internal network of friends. I have come to identify some of these as what I'm going to refer as bubbles of myself and others that I know, like when you know someone really well and you can just hear their voice and mentality in your head when you think about them, kind of like that. Others, are different bubble personalities of myself, alter-egos and such. Some are different versions of myself or how I perceive myself (I am a small Caucasian female and one of these voices is a big black woman I call Big Mama 'Lo, for example, due to the fluidness of my general mentality and how I adapt when I talk to people). My point of the matter is, they might drive you ABSOLUTELY batshiat at times just like some of your friends might, but the point of the matter is, if they were really in there to antagonize you, the problem is within the voices as well as yourself. I have been hearing these voices throughout my life, since the age of 5 or 6, and I have been experiencing extreme cases of deja vu, what I'm perceiving as astral projection through time. It's like two cells of the same type, one a little older, one a little younger, passing information back and forth to each other through osmosis. They don't really set up a date or time, it's just see you when I see you and I'll tell you what's been happening since we last talked.

The voices usually start piping up because internally, somewhere in my psyche, when they think something is wrong, they're usually correct. When I was going through states of depression, the voices were depressed as well. When I'm optimistic and my usual zany self, so are the voices. YOU are in COMPLETE control of YOURself AND your voices. I've stopped worrying about little things that used to give me complete anxiety and the voices have stopped nagging at me about those little things, and they poke fun at me when I feel like poking fun at others. It's kind of a 'you are what you eat' kind of thing, except its more like 'what you are on the inside, you are on the inside of that inside'. Confusing, I know, but seriously, talk to the voices, don't worry too much about feeling crazy because its the ones who are truly crazy who don't think that they're crazy and it's the ones who think they might be crazy who usually aren't. If you don't like the voices and want to block them out, there is always the option of medication, I however despise medication because of the adverse side-effects and I'd much rather chatter away with the friends inside of my cranium than feel all fuzzy and dim.

The way I look at it is YOU in your physical and psychological self, excluding the voices, is basically a hotel, including all the staff. THE VOICES are all the guests of that hotel. Some are nice and quiet, some are obnoxious, some throw room parties, and some seriously need to get kicked out. Believe me, I had a Kenny in my skull and we ALL (my physical and psychological self in addition to all the other voices) wanted to CHOKE her, Kenny is the name of one of my obnoxious voices that was incredibly stupid and it was kind of like those incredibly low intelligence individuals who have every idea on how annoying they are and they don't care so they keep on doing it. I don't know what happened to Kenny but after three weeks of dealing with that particular overly annoying resident of the skull-cabinet, the rest of the voices either dismantled her/it or kicked her/it out. You have to work through these things, don't just take the easy path. It's like what one of the others in this thread said, it's easier to avoid than accept. I'm tired of avoiding because I myself don't like being avoided, and so I accept. I learn to cope with it and I make the most of it. I used to think I was crazy and I worried about it constantly but now I joke about it all the time and I am genuinely happy with myself because, you know what? I might be crazy, but no one but me can get inside my head and I'm friends with everybody in here. Be respectful to the head-space staff of the hotel and they will be nice to you. Seriously. If they are open-minded with becoming friends with you, become friends with them. Treat others how you want to be treated essentially because what you are on the inside, you are on the inside of your inside too. Bon appétit, all our little voicified friends.

I have experienced Invasive internal voices to. I hear ones that try to anger me and make it difficult not to be upset, they seem to feed off of my frustration like fuel on a fire. I hear honest ones who just want to help and have been assisted by ones that act like guardian angels here to guide me. On a daily basis I deal with ones that just don't want to hear me at all and will voice that opinion regularly.
After dealing with such inconsistent data it seems to me that telepathy could possibly be ones spirit communicating through the ethereal realms, whether it be consciously, subconsciously or even unconsciously. If you've ever read about quantum jumping it could be speculated that these two phenomena work in accordance with each other, this may explain why all of this majoritively doesn't make sense (considering we are each very sentient beings.)

Hey don't worry too much and don't think too much about why you hear the voices. Just see a good psychiatrist, medications like symbyax for bipolar or navaine work pretty good in blocking the voices. I used to hear voices too, they started slowly until I started hearing them 24/7 and I became totally crazy and started having memory loss and also forgot to eat sleep etc. But for the past eight years I have been on medication and live a totally normal life. They still bother me a little bit but not to the extent to effect my everyday living.

I get the exact same thing. I have had it for years. I never even imagined that it could be because of any sort of psychic phenomenon (which I do believe in) just because the shiat the people I hear talk about it just so mundane! Run of the mill every day stuff. For me its just like what you hear when you walk down a busy street. And true sometimes there are less voices or just one, but there is no sense of conveying or any real importance. I think this is simply due to the veil between your waking and sleeping state being lifted in this area, and its just bollocks from mine and probably your subconscious. The way I figure this is because I also experience sleep paralysis, and very occasionally sleep walk. Its almost like element from the dream state can be just mixed and matched in a very weird way. Another thing that makes me believe that this is the reason is the hallucinations of all types I have experienced during sleep deprivation. I think the sleeping world can creep into the waking one relatively easily. Let me know what you think or if you have an opinion. Id appreciate that. Amy

Guess what? I UNDERSTAND YOU COMPLETELY! There is this girl, very sweet very nice from a video game called; Aerith...she's from a video game and yet she talk to me while I am doing something, she enters my mind at anytime when I start thinking about other things, there are many thoughts inside my head which are not mine, some of few belong to some drunken men with disgusting urges and when I think about something, per say I'm doing a Math test, they will come up and say things that are utterly disgusting! Aerith tells me to not listen to them, I haven't heard them since Aerith came some time ago, I don't know anyone is real life named Aeirth, but the Aerith from the video game called Final fantasy and you'll see what she looks like in google, has the same voice, characteristics as the one whom I often talk to. I know for a fact it's not a ghost -_- I do not have any illness either, no one has died... When I think about something... ANYTHING a random voice will start talking and I realise it's not mine, one voice it perculiar was saying she wanted to kill every last "morsel" in my classroom... I had not known "Aerith's" name before but she has helped me, one time during the summer I was at camp and when I went to the washroom I could not find my shirt and there are lockers in the washroom by the way, she told me to look down on the floor behind a chair in the far corner and that was the last I had heard of her before she came back... Sometimes these voices help me, tell me advice, and also say things entirely inappropriate... I tell my mom and she says it is not good I let these voices inside my head, I have had another psychic experience where I was at school, right before an assembly, I think it was Aerith, she gave me a small visual vision of what was going to happen, in the vision I could se diff from my eyes me in the gym, where I sat, what the lady looked like, and what she was telling us... His was about QSP and we were getting bracelets and jus as I reached out for one "Aerith" was giving me the vision... I'm pretty sure her name is Aerith she has told me, when I talk to her, I could sit still talking to her for hours about various things, and not even know what I'm doing...
Ps I'm using my iPod to type to it's a pain what I say Amy or may not make sense here

i have been hearing voices as well, I know for a fact who they are because when I listen closely and block everything else out (focal meditation) I can clearly hear who I am hearing, i.e. Boyfriend, friends, family. But most of he time I hear so many throughout my day that I can't tell who or what. I have found tho that if you look directly at the person and facus all you energy into looking at their soul you can hear just them, and no one else. Some people say looking into eyes is easier for them. It's just trial and error. Don't be scared about others, my family has tried to put me in a mental hosp. Twice and the doctors keep telling them there's nothing wrong with me. If you must really know I believe something is wrong with them for not accepting what we are able to do, and they are the scared ones. Keep true to yourself and listen to your jiminy cricket.
Hope this helped

That happens to me too! When I'm falling asleep, I can always hear these little snatches of conversation. I can never quite make out what the voices are saying, because I'm always just falling asleep. But I hear voices when I'm awake, too. Just not all at once. I think maybe my mind has a filter.

I can hear voices when I'm really's almost like my mind starts racing and it's like being in a big room with many people talking. I don't hear them in a sense like you talking to me face to face, it's more vivid and like I said it's usually when I'm very sick. Then it's like I'm watching a movie in my head and all sorts of things I can see lol. I used to able to make it happen during sleep or " meditation " because I used to know this guy that told me, that if I clear my mind, I can hear other peoples thoughts, or see people. It sort of worked! But I don't do that any more.

You sound like either an empath or someone who can hear ghosts (don't know the fancy term for that). If it's the empath thing, I sympathize because that is hard to deal with on your own. You might start getting more of this, emotions and thoughts, and I find if others are doing one thing and I another I'll begin to subconciously do their thing. It's distracting and annoying, plus it feels like I'm invading people's privacy. Try to look at it in a better light though, it can help one to better solve problems. You'll see both sides of everything.
If you are aware of ghosts, be happy about it. They're helpful and don't generally want to hurt you. For me it's both options.
Hope to help

whitebuffalo is right. Many people might hear these voices but prefer to ignore them or block them out and pretend it never happened. Consider it your power, what makes you different from the others-special-...dont see it as if it your weakness or something. You are neither crazy nor alone. Practise with it and youll see how much better you will feel.

Love, Athina

This may read very simple, and elementary, but through various experiences in my personal home, I know it to work.
When you relax (No. I am NOT going to suggest meditation. It SOUNDS like should you meditate, the experience MAY compound itself), recite a difficult passage of whatever literary work you enjoy.
IF (that IS in caps) you enjoy, say Poe. Recite your favorite poem (or excerpt from it). For that matter, if Dr Seuss is more up your alley (do not laugh, some people HAVE used it), then go right ahead and recite that.
In your MIND.
What this truly sounds like is that your MIND is working over time. NOT your "brain", but your MIND. If you can "fill that space" with something else, the voices may eventually lessen. Once that gets to a place where you are more comfortable with it, THEN you can "ease" into meditating.
You do NOT want to "over load" as THAT would BE a mental issue.
I had to chuckle a bit when I read in your comment "...what freaks me out the most is knowing that a lot of other people don't go trough it". HOW do you know? *smiling* Just because they will not ADMIT it? Or PRETEND it is not possible?
For some, avoidance is a LOT easier than acceptance. They do not want to believe THEY are "crazy", so therefore, it did not happen. I think you would be really surprised to find out just how many people actually DO hear these kinds of thought waves.
Thank you.

It sounds as if you are probably hearing other peoples thoughts. Just try to practise it and you will be able to control it. During the day meditate and see if you can get into the state you experience during the time before you go to sleep. Once you start hearing the voices try to focus on someone in particular. Also practise and learn how to make the voices be quiet. You will learn how to use your ability in time. You'll be able to strengthen it and soon enough be able to do it at any time at your own will. Don't be scared, just listen to it. As if you are watching a stream of water - let it flow and see where it goes.

Hope this helps.

gabnix, what freaks me out the most is knowing that a lot of other people don't go trough it also, and that others will quickly diagnose someone as crazy. But now that you and love_true have told me that you both go through the same thing, it gives much more ease and I feel a lot better. 😳

ive had the exact same thing but with mine it usually comes when I'm alone or everyone is sleeping, I know about the voices talking about things to do with everyday living. I can't say what it is but it's not normal and not everyone goes through that, so don't be afraid just try and listen to what the voices are saying and write down what theyre talking about and what accent they have.

EXACTLY the same thing is happening to me too!
I sympathise with everything you've written. The voices-the silence-everything. I have figured out it is thoughts I hear-their subconcious most probably- and sometimes conversations that people have. Hey don't freak out... It can't be that bad. I don't think its ghosts that we hear but you can always test it with a friend you can trust and see for yourself. What is that upsets you?
