Ok I've heard that an Auditory hallucination is "a person hearing a voice speak one's thoughts" but... How else do you know your thoughts? :/

There's a difference in the "inner dialogue" that occurs daily. Inner dialogue is simply you talking to yourself: "What will I fix for lunch? That man is going to get run over. I hope she says yes" etc.

Hearing voices is an entirely different phenomena. Most people who report hearing voices actually hear an audible sound. To them, it sounds as if someone spoke their name or gave them a command in the room they are in.

Right so it in your head but coming through your ear?

You could say that.

The person may or may not actually hear anything (meaning if you were standing right next to them, you wouldn't hear a sound). But the person does "hear" something. Even though it might not be an audible voice that just anyone can hear, the person will perceive it as such.

Clear as mud?

Yeah I suppose, it's just that reading this " One author wrote of their hallucinations: "they deceive, derange and force me into a world of crippling paranoia". In many cases, the delusional beliefs could be seen as fairly rational explanations for abnormal experiences: "I increasingly heard voices (which I'd always call ‘loud thoughts’)... I concluded that other people were putting these loud thoughts into my head".[8] Some cases have been described as an "auditory ransom note"."

Is like the exact same things i've thought but the voices are just lots of me.

I can tell the difference between my inner voice and my "Other" voice.
My other voice once told me "Now don't F**** me about go downstairs and open the front door".
I did so and a member of Mi6 was casing the place from the street outside.
How do i know he was mi6?, i worked at a secure establishment at the time, i had signed to the official secrets act, i recognised him from my place of work, this was somewhere i had come into contact with these people a few times whilst working there.
He was very surprised when i opened the door and looked straight at him.

Every word is how it happened.

I tend to think my wife is talking to me and I'll huh to let her know I'm listening, and she tell me I didn't say anything lol so I always shrug it off,

I remember one time I was walking down the sidewalk and saw to my eyes a big wasp flying att me (very big phobia of wasps) ran from it for a few minutes, my mom asked what was I running from I told her and see no it was a butterfly
That's just one I''ve got more lol

I guess you would know your own thoughts because they would be in continuity of your core beliefs of the moment, and aligned with what you perceive as your own personality.

Just like you will know when it is you that you hear speaking, or someone else. Even an auditory hallucination will show a different personality, voice than yours.

I was alone at home once when I heard my name spoken out loud, by a female voice. I recognized the voice as that of a friend. But why did I hear her voice calling my name at that moment? No idea. A brain fart maybe.

Was it me remembering something unconsciously, or a form of telepathic occurrence? No idea either.

Do you hear voices? Did you consider the new technologies that allow for transmission of thoughts in the brain?
Educate yourself

For me, I hear myself "read" what others are typing in a forum. I am not sure why I still read words as opposed to sentences, but I digress.

So far, thankfully, I have not heard anything "else" in my head.

If your brain is "thinking" like a million miles per hour, then something probably isn't right.

I had that and it would keep me up. On that I would seek professional help, but if they just say here take this and come back next week as opposed to looking into dietary/exercise (first) then find someone else. The key is to find someone that wants to cure the root cause, not the symptom.

For me, I find that if I eat a relatively healthy mix of protein/carbs/fat 30/40/30 (when I can) and take a good long walk and just let my mind think on its own, then I am good to sleep.

Now that may be the wrong tree altogether, but a healthy diet/exercise does wonders for the body.

Are you studying psychology or psychiatry? Or perhaps reading material about psychosis? Because its extremely easy to self-diagnose yourself as being nuts when you read some of those materials.

Of course, being on ATS doesn't quite speak to your mental health....

I didn't really read about it untill I got para as hell and looked it up. A few months ago I got deluded into thinking I was adopted and a few weeks ago I thought I was a child of God even though I was an atheist.


"If your brain is "thinking" like a million miles per hour, then something probably isn't right. " It's been like that since i've had memories. I thought the brain worked by always thinking constantly, is that wrong? :/

A lot of "voices in the head" are spirits messing with people.

But because the medical industry refuses to acknowledge the spirit world, the only option they have to explain it is "mental illness".

To hear your own thoughts perhaps can be one thing. To hear what you do not expect, is another.

If you think you're hearing voices, you are aware of it... but when you know you hear external voices, someone talking, telling you things.. you have to stop and consider it.

How else do we hear our own thoughts? That's mad... and not in the sense of hearing voices. Unless you have experienced it, you cannot judge.

And when/if you do hear external voices, if you're teetering on the edge, it's bloody scary.

damn scary...

For paranoid schizophrenics, I believe they hear voices that are external to their own thoughts, and which can be critical of them, and very mean. Things like "you fat, lazy cow," and much worse. Racing thoughts is more typical of a manic episode, or simply too much caffine...

The brain is constantly "going" but their is what I consider normal, where I control what I think about then their is the "million miles per hour" where its like on auto pilot and you have little to no control of your thoughts.

If its keeping you up at night and your not getting a healthy amount of sleep, then something is wrong.

Also if its keeping you from doing things, or being able to focus at work/school, then something needs to be looked into. It's normal if a traumatic experience occurred, like say a death in the family or you witnessed a gruesome fight/death. But if you have no idea why and you are having problems, then I would talk to a professional.

If you are religious/spiritual I would seek a counselor in the church, unless your dead set against it I would. Otherwise a professional would either help with your anxiety to allay your fears, or help diagnose you.

I hate to say it, but if you look into spiritual warfare, you will find that almost all "mental" issues are caused by this. (unless you talk to someone that is dead set against it then someone that is under attack is just "sick".)
