I'm feeling anxious over recently starting to hear voices. It began about a month ago, and is the second time I've had this experience, having had cannabis psychosis in the past and hearing the same type of voices. This time it doesn't seem to be drug-motivated.

I hear my parents arguing about me in their bedroom across the hall. It's always the same, my Dad criticizing, my Mum defending me. it sounds very quiet, but is very close in sound to what they actually sound like when they are talking in their bedroom.

So they could just be having these discussions then right? Except my Dad's a very heavy snorer and I've heard him snoring many times over the past month when I hear these voices, and ocassionally its happened when I'm elsewhere entirely. Although usually it's in the wee hours. I asked my Mum about it and she confirms its all 'in my head'.

I'm very open-minded and would like to get an alternative perspective on what hearing these sorts of quiet whispers could mean. If I really focus I can make out my parent's voices and words. The clinical diagnosis is that my subconscious is creating them out of my own fears. They always discuss my biggest fears.

This actually promoted me to wake my parents up about a month ago when they began and explain to them that I have a gender issue, something I've never discussed with them but should have. So, in a sense, the voices help me face my greatest fears by understanding them better.

If there is some kind of spiritual basis for this, such as the 'psychic attacks' I've heard about, is it necessarily negative? I faced my fears, as I did last time I heard them.

Having said that, they've persisted over this last month on most days just as I'm feeling so much better generally, the best in years, most nights I feel the positive energy sucked out of me almost vampirically. I woke up to hear them a couple of nights ago, and screamed because I felt a great chill and sense of dread as I awoke. That hasn't happened to me very often before.

Please help. Thanks.

I have heard the Voice 2 times in my life.

the first time was when I was trying to lift my then b/friend and the Voice said 'Watch your back'. It was very clear, just off my right shoulder. A second later, my back went and I have had trouble with it ever since.

The second time I was pregnant and I was walking down the street when I heard the Voice say, quite clearly - 'Child, your child is dead'. I was 8 weeks and when I went for my scan, sure enough, the baby's heart had stopped.

Again, the Voice was outside my head, about an inch from my right shoulder. I also hear the Voice inside my head - it pops up unexpectantly. It is always correct in what it says.

What if the "language" is the kinetics and statics within spacetime, having acquired a Presence that translates directly into the knowledge centers of the mind?

I have had a very similar experience a few years ago. I was working in the bush measuring cut lines, when I tripped and fell over a tree laying on the ground, I hurt my ankle really bad, I was all alone and wondering just how I was going to make it back to the truck, when I heard a very distinct voice say to me as I was getting up “WAIT I AM NOT FINISHED YET” so I stayed down for a few mins, when I did finally get up my ankle was totally fine and I finished my work, and went home and told everyone about it.
Thanks for sharing.

[moreRecently aFriend of mine brought her daughter to emergency, cause she found out her daughter was cutting, and when the mom asked her daughter about it she admitted she was hearing voices. The doctor told the mom in a separate room that lots of adolescents hear things like this, the way he explained it to her was that it was like the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Totally normal for this age group. The doctor recommended youth counselling for her daughter. As youth this age have so much going on in life sometimes they just need to talk to someone who understands.
I hope this helps.

The doctor also asked her what the voices said and she replied they tell me "I am no good, I am doing badly in school” stuff like this, the doctor told the mom these were some of the most lame voices he ever heard. That’s why he recommended counselling.

Have you considered that the voices may be of metaphysical origins, or do you not buy into that concept?

I heard a voice one time that had no human source. There was no way in hell that I created it in my mind.

I have often heard my name called right prior to falling asleep. It's annoying.
Usually, I'll ignore it unless it was very clear. Then I'll scope the house out, just in case.

One of the weird things I have been experiencing lately as I hit the hay though, is I will hear a explosion type sound in my head and it'll actually make my body do a quick spasm/jump. Now that, I find odd.


I just have to say WOW.. I have the exact same experiences.
The name calling, the explosion sound, everything. I am reeling atm. All I can add right now is when I do hear these things and try to 'listen' I feel as if some one is talking through a soundproof door and communication is just beyond my grasp.



I am saying wow at the moment too, as I have had the exact same experience more than a few times since my early teens. Hearing my name called as i am falling asleep and the scary explosion inside my head. It is more than a little disturbing, but I am glad to read that someone else has experienced this too, also I found this

if the voices you hear are hard to hear/unintelligible, it is most likely a harmless neural feedback loop where your brain is interpreting certain frequencies and comparing them to patterns that humans use to talk.

this is sometimes used in questionnaires to diagnose autism/asperger's syndrome or other, more vague sensory abnormalities. this doesn't require any real treatment nor cause for concern, though you may want to get a psychological evaluation. if it is related to the autistic spectrum or a sensory perception abnormality there are therapies/medications that can help. they aren't really needed, but it can make life easier.

if the voices are clearly communicating with you, or you feel as if a reporter on the news is speaking DIRECTLY to you, this could represent a schizoid personality disorder and an evaluation/treatment is very necessary.

i'm not a doctor, though i am fascinated by psychology and i study it in my spare time. i also have asperger's syndrome (higher-functioning autism), and faint/constant sounds often sound like indistinguishable human conversations. sometimes i will interpret a word or phrase, but it's garbled nonsense that is caused by the brain over-processing sensory information.

those are called "hypnogogic hallucinations" when sleep is involved. they can be purely auditory, or involve visual and spatial sensations. they're harmless and experienced by alot of people, though you usually lose consciousness before they start happening and don't remember them.

i've had a few very pleasurable ones including an EPIC guitar solo, a beautiful piano piece, and a woman singing with the most beautiful voice. feelings of movement (spinning, falling, rising) are also common, and if you stay conscious long enough, you may hear very loud rushing sounds and strange physical sensations.

I hear voices and have a weird propensity to associate patterns where none may exist (though my ATS history should demonstrate some organized thought.

The voices are very pronounced currently and I have for the first time started seriously considering that I may be indeed crazy...

1% of the U.S. population has schizophrenia. There are many types and subtypes of schizophrenia. I was diagnosed as paranoid schizoeffective which is schizophrenia and bipolar mixed.

A lot of people have schizophrenia and don't even know it. Some can have it thier whole life and not need medical attention. There are also paranoid peronality types. People that have some digree of paranoia but don't need help.

When it starts to effect your dailly life and you can no longer function it's time to get help. Most schizohprenics don't beilive there is anything wrong with thierselves no matter how sick they are. The lack the mental insight to thier illness. They start to beilive that the voices are aliens or god. Theres no rationality because in thier mind theres nothing wrong with them.

When your own mind turn against you it's one of the worst kinds of torture imaginable. I would rather have my legs amputated then go threw another psychosis.

I have actually considered this as I to have heard a voice that seemed to me to not be of this world.
I was working in the bush measuring some trails, and fell and twisted my ankle, it hurt really bad.
I tried to get up right away, and I heard “ Just Wait, I am not finished yet”
So I stayed on the ground for a few more minutes all the while thinking. What am I going to do I still have lots of work to finish, I was about 2 kms from the truck, my husband was measuring a different trail, and he would not know on which trail i am on as we had just started out a couple of hours earlier.
Anyway long story short, I got up and finished my work for the day, and had an amazing story to tell family and friends!
Please feel free to share your experience 
U2U if you like.

I have also experienced something similar to this which I never really put much thought into before.
Often times I fall asleep on the couch, for a few minutes only to be startled awake, I wake my heart is racing, and I am not sure what caused me to wake up, I don’t believe I heard my name being called, more like a loud noise, or a feeling of movement.

First off I would like to say that I do believe people have this illness, and I wish there was a cure.

My problem with it is that it seems these days everyone is diagnosed with some type of mental illness and on medication.

I think there is more to this that what is taught in medical schools.

My brother has schizophrenia (diagnosed 15 yrs ago) but he's never reported voices.


How does someone who doesn't hear voices get diagnosed as a schizophrenic? Can someone define exactly what schizophrenia is, please? What symptoms merit a diagnosis of schizophrenia???
