First off, I'm thirteen years old, I have no mental problems, and I'm not on any medication or anything that could cause this.
Most nights when I'm laying in bed, I hear thoughts that don't belong to me. They say many things that make no sense, and I can't tell if they're talking to me or simply just talking. I've heard things like, "Listen to me," or "It's hard to save these." None of the things I hear make any sense to me. Just last night, I heard, "He's 3,002" while I was in bed. Most of them are full sentences, but there are some single words like "Hello," or "Forever."
I would have just blamed this on being half-asleep, but that's not the case. I can be awake enough to be reading and comprehending a book when they start to come. There tends to be a lot of them at night, just saying random things. They're never in any way threatening or unnerving. They're just there. And occasionally, I hear them in the middle of the day. But when that happens, it's usually just a single thought and then nothing else.
Each thought has its own voice, and most of them are voices I've never heard before. Also, some seem like they're closer than others, like they're more noticeable. It seems like the thoughts with more emotion tend to be "louder" than the ones that don't. For example, one night I heard, "Hello." It seemed quiet, like it was in the background. But when I heard, "Listen to me," it was loud and easy to pick up on. I remember that it was a man's voice, and he sounded firm, as if it was important and he was desperate to get through. I don't know what it was, but the thought was so packed with emotion that I suddenly started crying, even though it was only for a moment.
I have no idea what this means or why it happens to me. It's been happening for a while, but I just recently started paying attention to the thoughts. I actually thought it might be normal to experience this, until I told my mom about it one day and she told me otherwise. I was hoping someone could explain to me why this happens, or maybe relate to it. Any answers would be extremely helpful.
Thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to help me out!
I have never posted before, but I saw your post and didn't want you to feel confused or weird. I think you may be hearing some form of thoughts or spirit communication. Verbal spirit communication seems to originate from directly behind your ear and sound very wispy. If the voices sound more like what you would hear in person and are more or less audible from different voices then they are probably living people. Voices from living people may sound like their regular voices or may be quite different depending on their personality. If you close your eyes and try to feel where the voices come from, then some will seem to from south, north, eat or west. They will feel as if you can follow an invisible thread of energy or light back to the person. It sounds more like hearing an echo yelled in a canyon from a person you cannot see. You can tell where it is coming from if you listen carefully. The voices may be louder if the physical body is closer or has more psychic ability. You may be right in that they are more emotional as well. If they are spirits then they will be able to answer you. If not, then the voices may be confused if you try to speak to them. Spirits do tend to be more active starting after twilight, whereas psychics may find a time starting at twilight and lasting a few hours where it may be difficult to hear the living persons' voices. You may also be hearing snippets of psychic communication among friends or coven members. One way to test if you can hear the voices of living people is to pick someone you trust and think about them. Tell that person to repeat some song or phrase (this phrase should not be know to you) over and over in her mind while thinking of saying it to you. You should be in aplace where you could not hear her if she speaks the phrase aloud. If you cannot hear the thoughts, then have her do it again speaking aloud. If you can tell ten times what she is thinking or saying then it is likely that you hear toughts or conversations from a distance. In any case, I would highly suggest learning meditation which will help become familiar with your thoughts. Some ways to stop the voices for a while are reading or meditation. Some psychics who have this talent will feel a tightness/pressing or slight movement feeling at the back of their mind or see small circular lights floating above their eyes.
I hope this helps,
