Research

Intervoice is committed to encouraging research into voice-hearing that people who hear voices, and their supporters, can truly benefit from. In this section, we will include the latest news from our International Research Committee, alongside a bibliography covering research into a wide range of aspects of the experience.

We will be developing this section in the coming months. If you know of any research that should be included here, please let us know. Additionally, if you would like to contact the Research Committee please email us or leave a comment of the Research Committee’s page.

Thank you

    i would really appreciate being given some figure of just how common haring voices is for the people in the UK. thank you i found this website extremelly useful and powerful.

  2. massimo battista

    I was very enthused aswell as relieved to find an organisation which has your beliefs reguarding hearing voices and the outdated, retarded and disgusting practices and ideals of the psychiatic field i get treatment from in canada with their medication and complete ignorance and virtual non treatment of their practices. From what i read on wikipaedia you offer a more realistic and hollistic approach rather than stigmatising and mediacating the patient without actually ever inquiring about who,what .. the voices are and what they mean to you. I was hoping to contact someone by telephone aswell as inquiring about your organisation here in Canada, if you can contact me with some contact information i would be very pleaed. In conclusion i would like to thank you and congradulate you for what seems to be a better mre human and realistic and positive form of treatment.

      I totally agree Massimo, the narrow, ignorant and archaic practices of the psychiatric establishment seem to do more harm than good.
      I work in Mental Health in New Zealand, and have been disgusted to see numerous voice-hearers let down by services and “treatments” that are completely ineffective for this experience, and yet are justified via compulsory treatment laws.
      It appears more and more common here to have people labelled “treatment resistant” or “medication resistant” which to me is only a cop-out, and really means that clinicians are out of their depth when dealing with this phenomena. Hearing voices is still left in the “schizophrenia” basket regardless of the overall experience the person has, and when medication is ineffective, which seems quite often, the “system” has no idea what to do.
      I’m with you; self-education, holistic healing and devising coping strategies worked for me, as hearing voices had always been there anyway and had significance in my life. I didn’t actually want them medicated out of existence, merely to understand them and deal with the underlying issues to move on.

  3. Jo Harfield

    I hear constant chattering voices all the time. this started about 7 years ago just before my 50th birthday.
    I find it very disturbing and night time is definately the worse time because they dont stop until I’m exhausted and fall asleep.

    Hi people,

    I am interested in the research of the urban environment and the impact it can have on hearing voices. Any suggestions for further reading??

    GOOGLE SEARCH SYNTHETIC TELEAPATHY OR VOICE TO SKULL TECHNOLGY WHAT IS THE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN REAL SCHIZOPHREINA AND BEING TARGETED WITH A VOICE TO SKULL DEVICE THERE IS ALL KINDS OF PAGES THAT TELL YOU HOW THE VOICES GET IN BUT NO INFO HOW TO GET THEM OUT WHEN DONE WITH THIS KIND OF TECHNOLGY IN THIS CASE IS THERE AWAY TO BLOCK THE SOUND WAVES THEY USE TO GIVE YOU THE VOICES??

    1. Brandon

      I am a target of SYNTHETIC TELEAPATHY OR VOICE TO SKULL TECHNOLGY are there any counter measures?

      1. nathaniel ericson

        There are many ways to get them out, but lets start from the beginning. If it started from someone using a directed energy weapon (voice to skull device) they started your mind, like a roller coaster. Or most of the time, when it is started by traumatic events or old age, same thing; its a roller coaster that can and usually does have life threatening turns. What you people need to realize is how much control you have over the voices, think about it as an extra limb you have been gifted, you can learn to use the extra arm, or you can engage it, which is extremely dangerous, as you are creating a part of your self that you don’t understand and can is usually the reason you wind up on the ledge.

        Now the roller coaster started, one way or another, what do you do? Mediate, eat correctly, never listen to command voices that could lead to the harm of someone else or yourself, EMSM (electro magnetic sheilding material) you can build hats, entire face masks, i have an entire suit i created, do to my unusual experiences. So if you want the easy way out, google electro magnetic shielding material, craps expensive and 70% of the time you are buying translucent foil, well more like 95 percent, why? cause the governments protocols are put in place to stop you from taking the easy way out, for your own good.

        Chakra centering should be the only thing you think about after reading this, go to piratebay.org, after downloading and installing utorrent, from utorrent.com, and search for audio guides on how to center your chakras, In simple language, centering your chakras is just harnessing and controlling your bodies electro magnetic fields, no easy task. But look every where for ways that people accomplish chakra centering, everyone is different, so never stop trying, you won’t regret it.

        Always remember, its always 50/50, psychological and physical, the best method of all, If you get into a situation, your voices have convinced you someones going to kill you, OH MY GOD!!! they are coming right now! what do you do? think to yourself, are you really that afraid to die? just tell your voice/voices, dang…i guess this is it then, pop a xanax, smoke some weed, and watch Tropic Thunder.

        Last but not least, light and sound machines and the operation of your 3rd eye. Why listen to me? i work for the military for almost a decade now. I now no longer have to work. If you would like more personalized information for specific situations, please email me. Also, intervoice, if you are hiring, there is no one i have come across that i could wind up, or down, i am the best in the field of fixing broken people, and love what i do.

        Also, you, while your experience with voices unfolds, you and only you, can bring harm to yourself.

    Is there any hope that those involuntary movements will stop after quitting the drug – in this case haldol? What does the research say and/or where can I find it?

    1. Berta Britz

      I can’t point to research; however my experience with involuntary movements from Haldol has been mixed. Once the drug was discontinued, the size and intensity of movements lessened, but I continue to have more fine and mild movements and what they call dystonia or a sort of stiffening.

      I hope someone else can help from the research standpoint.

      Sincerely,
      Berta

  8. Bob

    I’m interested to know how the voices identify themselves when asked and the details they give when identity information is sought from them. I’m interested in knowing the general findings of the field in this respect.

    If you can send me some references covering this topic it would be most appreciated.

    Many thanks

    1. bill

      The voices sound like people I know, or have met at some time. When I ask who they are, I get scarred, and there is just silence. Then I hear someone I have met say something terrible about me again. I imagine a shapeshifter. One person, like a old indian witch doctor, who is always hearing my thoughts and memories, recording the ones he likes to use when demeaning. Then the shapes he changes into are the people who would mostly be affected by what they said, if they actually said it. This is weird, because I am such a nice guy, they could say it to my face if they wanted to. I would not lash out at them in any way. a lot of it is just lowlife comments and threats.

      1. anon

        exactly, this is exactly how I experienced it. Like he takes things I say and uses them to mock me just like how you described. And I know!!, , The whole time ( 2 years or so now) I just wanted him to come out and say it to my face or at least talk to me in person. At times it was felt tremendously awful, like an anti-communication – which to me was the worst thing to experience. I have always been introverted but extremely social.

        1. sunny

          I had a similar experience. I wanted to know why they couldn’t call me on a cell phone, if they are indeed real. I waited several times for meetings to take place. I was convinced that I was telepathic, and that I was communicating with alien beings. Everything sounds so real, and it is as if it is coming from outside of my brain. The conversations use terminology that I myself do not normally use. It has been very confusing for me, too.

        2. ST

          I am not a regular voice hearer, I just had one brief psychotic episode a few months back. But it’s so strange because this sounds so very similar to what I experienced during those few days! The voices I heard were of my friends and they were commentating on everything I did. I wouldn’t drink water because every time I raised the glass to my mouth I would hear them laughing and saying things that made me think it wasn’t really water that I was drinking. I would then go to the people I heard and ask them to stop lying to me which obviously they were very confused about because they had no idea what I was hearing. I’m so glad I found this website, nobody seems to understand me when I talk to them about what happened. The fact that other people have had similar experiences make me feel a little better.

    2. Kate

      They always tell me that they’re me… Or the only one I asked said that. He’s quite logical, and told me that he’s a coping mechanism for me and he protects me. But is still me.

      1. Jimi Scott

        This is a way they work with you. It is so that you may gain your own individual “emotional security”! That has been my personal experience with my voices. Best wishes and Peace Within, Kate!

    We are a start-up Community Based Organization in Kenya known as NORMAL DIFFERENCE..The only organization in Kenya dealing with people hearing voices. We’d like to get more information about these people.So far we have managed to scout and recruit twenty four people with hearing voices. HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER.

    PLEASE HELP US TO HELP HUMANITY.

    1. john ramzan

      its good to look at history and different cultures and how they explain life and how we experience life, muslums cultures call us listeners and is not frowned upon especially in the earlier civilisations, its an interesting fact that when we are in namaaz the pray, we lift our hands to our ears to signafy we are listening, interesting!

      well i am a voice hearer from uganda and tremendously recovering we have a group called voice hearing kampala any way in case of any thing my email is (personal details removed as explained in Intervoice’s policy)

    Dear Intervoice,

    We are a research team at the University of Surrey in the UK with a passion for clinical work and research with people who hear voices. We are aware of the substantial support that organisations such as Intervoice provide to their members and the wider community. We had the pleasure of contact with Rachel Waddingham this Summer who kindly offered to support us to raise awareness of our research in the UK. We are hoping that the research can help with psychological therapies for people who hear voices in the future.

    We have an online questionnaire which charities in the UK such as MIND, the Mental Health Foundation and the Hearing Voices Network have distributed to their members. It takes 20-25 minutes and participants can enter into a prize draw to win up to $75 US. Our aim is to have 140 English-speaking participants through the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand before the end of 2011. We are encouraging charties to send information about our study through email distribution lists, links on websites, newsletters, online forums, Facebook and Twitter. The research has ethical approval from the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences at the University of Surrey. If you would like further information, please emaill us at [email protected] and we can send you further information and the link to our website.

    Kind regards,

      i read that you are working as a team on inner voices. i don;t understand why recently this matter has become so complicated . this malfunction of brain which is dominant on 99% of humankind mind has been known for thousands of years specially on eastern countries . any one that claim
      he or she does;t have it let them try stopping thinking . please you researchers try for yourself .
      i am sure that you won;t be able to completely stop thinking or imagining or singing or reasoning.
      what is behind it . why our brain has gone out of order and sends thoughts and memories contentiously to our mind . this is the main and real question not that some of the people hear
      (understand) voices . please don;t relate it to superstitious . it is a real physiological and psychological problem of human brain .i have a book on this subject titled “Me,the perpetual inner
      talking ghost” , it is in Persian but for sure you will find some one over there to give you a brief of
      what is in it .
      trust me if your research corrects it trend there will be a huge progress for treatment of mental
      illnesses and specially for understanding schizophrenia . some time hearing outside voices is
      a big step for solving inside problems .

      thank you for your time

    We have just published a book on the subject of psychic phenomenon such as hearing voices and seeing spirits; Divinely Touched: Transform Your Life;
    that explains where these voices come from and what one can do about it (without drugs!).
    Dr. Dave DiSano

    1. Wendy S. Newcastle, Australia

      Hello Dr. Dave DiSano.My daughter has been diagnosed with “schizophrenia”, she was told the voices are “medication resistant” because she still hears voices. She is taking high doses of clozapine and serquel plus an antidepresent. She has “lookups”, where her eyes turn up and you only see the whites of her eyes and the voices become very bad. She has this happening nearly every day. Her doctor has said its caused by anxiety not the medication. A doctor at our nearby hospital has suggested she try another medication, but which one? Hearing Voices groupis attending. How can I purchase your book “Divinely Touched: Transform Your Life”

      1. David B

        Dear Wendy,

        antipsychotic medication is a bit like blood pressure meds.
        Some medication can have SEVERE side-effects (years ago, I personally gained 70kg in 12 months from using the wrong medication).

        Your daughter needs to find the right medication and also the right dose that helps her symptoms and have few side-effects.

        I was diagnosed with schizophrenia 13 years ago and it took a few tries to get the right medication and the right does for me.

        Don’t worry, there is hope for your daughter. I was diagnosed with chronic schizophrenia about 6 years ago (meaning I would be sick the rest of my life), but have regained my sanity by understanding the problems and symptoms and am now slowly (under supervision) coming off my meds.

        Don’t give up hope Wendy,

        there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    2. Laura Hernandez

      I want to know how come a normal person can all of a sudden start hearing voices my husband started hearing voices two years ago and he started in jail then it stopped and again hes hearing things he lives with fear he can’t keep a job i don’t understand whats going on

  12. Sasha Norris

    All I know is dont play with Ouija boards.Thats how mine started back in 1999.Others have experienced the same problem.Hearing voices is also sometimes called “The art of discernment.”

  13. James Eddie

    I think suffers of schizophrenia have a strong claim to include a “duty to warn” patients and others that “immediate talking” voices are other people engaged in hostage taking (threatening), and “remote listening” audience is non other than people engaged in kidnapping, (stalking), for purposes that effect criminal control and unlawful death of legal authority and democratic power. I take it seriously, because so far to date, the measuring of communication has demonstrated that criminal intentions and motivations have out performed lawful intentions and non-criminal motivations, in the audience of sz. and in the world, and it has been impossible to gather any witness testimony beyond the schizophrenic person, that “voices” appear to be other people, living within Anne Frank like settings, much due to the protection of causation built into the channel as well as the intention to deceive, or criminally corrupt. However, if the police or the medical community were to gather or assemble evidence of sharing mind with other people, it could be used to improve the emotional and physical care of those suffering from the condition, particularly those victims who remain free of criminal power and suffer from nothing other than emotive techncial sound domination.

    Sometimes getting rid of Spirit books and materials will help.. I mean if your reading books about wizards and demons or practicing such things.. what can you expect..? and Sometimes doing Drugs can allow for people to hear Voices and See Visions.. Hope this helps.

    1. Ms. B.

      Dearest Earnest: Who were you hoping to help? What can anyone expect? How about a little more understanding? What about those who have never read spirit books or have taken drugs…or that the only reason they take legal drugs is to quiet the voices who are destructive? Just because it isn’t tangible doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist or that it Isn’t real or that it is a figment of imagination.

    On Research

    I first broke down and experienced “nightmares” I call them at the age of 19. I was alone and wasnt wanted back home but was helped out by family and put into a halfway home.

    I watched an english documentary called “Madness” about 8 years ago. Apparantly the medication they first used to treat people with schzephrenia, was some hormone, if Im correct from people who suffer from epilepsy or at least some dirivative of the illness. Now this brings to mind to me about epilepsy as I had a sister who had epilepsy. And I wonder if the key to the antidote has to do with anger and aggression. My sister did have a bad temper when she was younger. Anger, how does that relate to a schzephrenic state. Interesting that someone mentioned a higher self, could be. Or is schzephrenia bought on by the lack of oxygen to the brain from overuse of drinking and drugs and/or lack of water. Or chronic abusive experiences of events bringing on trauma resulting in brain damage. Are the voices logic gone wrong or are they ghosts?

    The voices I hear are choral. They sing nursery rhymes, christmas carols mostly, every day, around the clock. They are pleasant enough, but somewhat intrusive. I am 82 years old, and the singing started about 2 months ago. Is there anything special about singing compared to talking voices. Can I get info on singing voices somewhere? I haven’t seen a reference to singing voices anywhere.

    1. M V

      You should watch this Ted talk. You may find it helpful.

  19. Ellie

    I have heard voices all my life.(and see things too) My Mom always thought I was talking to imaginary people and so I guess I thought it was normal. As I got older I realized this was way not normal…well for the average person.

    It has been scary some times but most times it was some really strange stuff that was said. AND many times I would laugh…still do and go on my way.

    I think because I have always heard voices, I am able to accept it…its always been with me. My voices are not heard in my head..they are outside. I can hear them in the next room talking or hear them in the same room.
    Some times they are discussing me and I can’t hear every thing they say….very annoying..! Its sounds like mumbling and whispering and I can only catch a few words….sort of like a room full of people talking and you can’t hear all the conversation.

    Sometimes I can see them too…but only for a second or two and they are gone.
    There is more going on in this Universe than scientist can explain, not everything can be labelled THIS or THAT although they think they can. To me, there is something very real happening…and I do not accept the explanation that everyone who hears voices are sick.

    1. Darick P.

      Ellie:

      You are a refreshing perspective. I have been hearing voices for nearly three years. They have been less than friendly. I hear them both internally and externally. They are sometimes extremely clear and loud — from subtle muffled conversations to crisp and clear voices right into my ear. They can be single voices or in multiples. I have witnessed my surrounding environment take on an audible likeness to a train depot — voices, hustle & bustle, activity, etc. I have also seen with my eyes a number of entities (and seemingly another sense that I cannot describe — only to say that I see it with my eyes and mind together — I “sense” it but can describe it visually).

      It is very obvious that these voices/entities are those of something the scientific community cannot explain. Therefore, it is passed over to the medical and psychological communities to diagnose and treat. However, this is clearly not a condition which requires treatment, but one requiring understanding, faith, and trust. Too often, people like us are labeled, dismissed, and scorned.

      I am a very bright and level headed person who has been engaged by something (or someone) from another realm/dimension/frequency (I say frequency because nearly everything I have experienced has had a very broadcast quality to it — as if I am a receiver/amplifier). Any attempts I’ve made to share my experiences with friends, loved ones, doctors, etc. have all been met with disastrous results and referrals to psychiatric professionals.

      I tried so very diligently to chalk this up to a divine experience, yet the encounters are consistently cruel and tormenting (torturous). They pillaged my mind, raided my thoughts and memories, and ridicule my actions, thoughts, and emotions.

      It has been very difficult to stay positive about the state and condition of our existence as a species. I have adopted the recent belief that we have all been very controlled by a constant onslaught of subliminal influence of thought and actions throughout our entire lives — and that some of us witness this sad truth as our consciousness dips down and breaches up into the subliminal frequencies utilized to conduct these evils. They don’t like being heard. I can feel them pushing and pulling my mind on a daily basis. I know they control us all to a large degree. I’ve seen it and felt it. So much is becoming so clear to me since my first realization of this presence. It is unfortunate, to say the least.

      We are never alone in our thoughts. Never.

      Thanks again for your post.

      Darick P.

    2. Florine

      Dear Ellie,
      I’m working on an art project for which I’m researching on the spatial aspects of the voices heard.
      If you’re interessted in sharing your experiences with me please contact me.
      Thank you in advance,

    To add…I have never been on any meds of any kind for this. Also ..I have never smoked or drank alcohol either…

    We have a new site we’re building and have a survey examining positive expriences of hearing voices if anyone is interested.

  22. Brian Spittles

    Hi all,

    The excerpt below on the nature of “so-called hallucinations” is from a book written by Franklin Merrell-Wolff, an American philosopher-mathematician-scientist who achieved mystical or spiritual Enlightenment (or Illumination, or Awareness, or Whatever) in 1937. I believe he offers here an astute, edifying and challenging perspective that reframes the entire discussion regarding pathology versus normality, particularly in relation to the field of medical psychiatry. I also believe his words below call attention to the need for more psychospiritual research, and that they have major ramifications for the notion of ‘treatment’ and therapeutic intervention. Make of it as you will and feel free to share with others.

    Regards,
    Brian Spittles

    Merrell-Wolff, F. (1973) The Philosophy of Consciousness Without an Object: Reflections on the Nature of Transcendental Consciousness. New York: The Julian Press, Inc., pp.143-145.

    Modern psychology distinguishes between objects that it calls real and objects that it calls hallucinations. From the standpoint of Consciousness-without-an-object there is no important difference between these two sets of objects. The so-called real objects are experienced by groups of men in common, while the hallucinations are generally private. This is merely a social criterion of reality and has no logical force. Essentially it is as meaningless as determining physical laws by popular vote (p.143)…[T]he fact that objects exist for a given individual privately is not sufficient either to credit them with reality or to discredit them by calling them unreal hallucinations. The problem of reality is not to be handled in any such simple offhand manner. In fact, such a method is sheer intellectual tyranny. It is entirely possible that society, and not the individual man, is the greater fool. I am inclined to think so.

    Objects, whether of the common social type or the so-called hallucinations, exist for the powers of experience and thinking, and thus both are derivative. If by ‘Reality’ we mean the nonderivative, then both types of objects are unreal. In the narrower or pragmatic sense, the one type of object may be more real than the other, when taken in relation to a given purpose. It may well be that in the narrow sense of the purpose of western physical science, the social object is more real, but from the religious standpoint, in certain instances at any rate, the reverse valuation is far more likely to be true. But here we have no more than valuation with respect to specific purpose.

    Some mystical states, probably the greater number, involve the experiencing of subtle objects of the type that the psychologist calls hallucination. Practically, this has the effect of classifying the mystic with the psychotic, apparently with the intent of common depreciation. Such a course involves both intellectual laziness and a failure in discrimination. Since a ‘hallucination’ merely means private experience as opposed to social experience, it constitutes no true judgement or value. There is often a world of difference between one and another so-called hallucination. The difference between the state of consciousness of a drunkard, enjoying delirium tremens, and that of a seer like Swedenborg, is as far apart as the poles. All too (p.144) often the psychologist calls both merely states of hallucination, and acts as though he thought that by giving a name he had solved the whole problem. As a matter of fact, the real problem here is one of valuation, just as it is with the social objects. The vital question in either case is: How far and on what level do the objects arouse the realization of Meaning? The objects that do this in higher degree and on a higher level may properly be regarded as possessing the greater relative reality. Thus, in a given case, the so-called hallucination may far outreach any social object in the relative reality. In any case, the type of the object, whether social or private, is not by itself, any measure of its value or reality. Neither type has nonderivative Reality or Meaning (p.145).

    but I hope I’m wrong. If you could help me I would really
    appreciate it

    well, my story about hearing voices and dreams is quite long. I belong to North part of INDIA. i lived in AUCKLAND( NEW ZEALAND ) FOR 2 YEARS REGARDING MY STUDIES, I MET A GUY NAMED “EDDIE” A SAMOAN GUY, THE VERY 1ST DAY I REACHED NZ ON 24TH JUNE 2007. I FELT LIKE THAT I KNEW THIS GUY FROM A LONG TIME, AS I WAS REALLY SCARED AND WAS GLAD TO MEET HIM TOO, I GIFTED HIM MY N73 MOBILE PHONE. HE TOLD ME THAT I’M SUFFERING FROM JET-LEG THING. AT THAT TIME, I HAD NO IDEA RELATED TO THIS PHENOMENA. AROUND MIDNIGHT , HE OFFERED A PURPLE COLOR STONE , NOT SURE ABOUT THE NAME AND TOLD ME TO KEEP IT UNDER MY PILLOW WHILE ASLEEP. THE EXPERIENCE DURING THOSE TEN DAYS DAYS I HAD IT, WAS THAT I FELT STRONG VIBRATIONS INSIDE MY HEAD THAT SOMETHING IS GETTING GENERATED IN MY MIND. UNFORTUNATELY SOMEBODY STOLE IT FROM MY ROOM AS I WAS STAYING IN BACKPACKERS. THEN I GOT ENGAGED IN MY STUDIES IN COLLEGE.
    AFTER A COUPLE OF MONTHS I HAD STARTED HAVING FUTURE VISIONS, I MEAN CLEAR VISIONS ABOUT SOME OF THE IMPORTANT INCIDENTS HAPPENED WITH ME OUT THERE DURING MY TWO YEARS STAY. THAN I HAD TO COME BACK TO INDIA,MY FATHER WAS FALLEN SICK THAT TIME AS WELL AS I STARTED FEELING HOMESICK BEING ALONE THERE. I STAYED AT HOME FOR FEW MONTHS LOOKED AFTER MY FATHER’S ILLNESS, THAN I STARTED MY FIRST JOB IN INDIA, IN GURGAON. BUT THIS DREAMING WAS ALWAYS WITH ME I SAW MY FATHER’S DEAD BODY A WEEK ALREADY EXACTLY A WEEK AGO CLEARLY DURING DAY TIME SLEEP.AFTER THIS INCIDENT I LEFT THE JOB AND STAYED AT HOME FOR COUPLE OF MONTHS , THAN I HAD A SERIES OF DREAM THOSE DAYS I WAS JUST PRAYING TO GOD THAT PLEASE LEAD ME ON MY PATH AND GUIDE ME FOR MY FUTURE. IN MY DREAM I WAS FLYING HIGH AMONG TALL BUILDINGS, CLIMBING ON THE TOP A TOMB. STRUGGLING TO COME DOWN FROM THERE. THAN A FEW DAYS LATER ON FACEBOOK I FOUND ONE OF MY FRIEND WITH WHOM I WAS SHARING MY APARTMENT IN NEW ZEALAND WHEN I HAD MY FIRST TRUE DREAM . HE CALLED ME TO HIS PLACE AND I WAS AMAZED TO SEE THAT THOSE BUILDINGS WERE NEXT RIGHT SIDE OF THE PLACE WHERE HE WAS STAYING. AND MORE INTERESTING THAT A FEW DAYS LATER I MOVED IN THE SAME BUILDINGS ON 15TH FLOOR WITH MY FRIEND’S COUSIN AND HIS GIRL FRIEND. I WAS STILL NOT WORKING AND WAS LOOKING FOR A JOB . GOT AN INTERVIEW CALL FROM A BIG COMPANY BUT AGAIN WHATEVER HAPPENS IN MY DREAMS I COULD NEVER CHANGE IT. I SAW MYSELF STUCK IN LIFTS AND HAVING ARGUE WITH SECURITY GUARDS AND SAME WAY IT HAPPENED . I DIDN’T APPEAR FOR THE INTERVIEW AT ALL. I CAME BACK HOME , WAS TOO MUCH ANNOYED WITH MYSELF AND THE THINGS HAPPENING AROUND. THEN AFTER COMING BACK I FELT ASLEEP AND AROUND 4’0 CLOCK IN THE MORNING THREE VOICES AWAKE ME UP AS ” JITU BAHIYA WAKE UP, JITU BHAIYA AND WHAT’S UP?” I WAS SHOCKED AND SAT DOWN WITH A COLD BREEZE INSIDE MY BODY. AS JITU IS MY SHORT NAME JUST MY FAMILY MEMBERS KNOW ABOUT AS I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TELLING MY NAME AS JITENDER, MY FIRST NAME OR JUST GULIA MY LAST NAME.
    FOR NEXT THREE DAYS I COULDN’T FIGURE OUT , WHAT HAPPENED WITH ME. THEN SUDDENLY I FELT LIKE TO MOVE OUT OF MY ROOM WITHOUT TELLING MY FLATMATES WHERE I AM GOING ON MY MOTORBIKE. I DIDN’T TAKE MY LAPTOP OR ANY OTHER ASSET AS SOMETHING INSIDE MADE ME TO MOVE OUT FROM THERE. I PARKED MY BIKE ON BUS STAND IN NEW DELHI, AND I JUMPED INTO THE BUS FOR RISHIKESH, THE HOLY CITY OF INDIA. THE SAME EVENING I MET A GUY WORKING IN A RESTAURANT OUT HERE , HE ASKED ME MY NAME AND I TOLD HIM JITU, HE SAID I WILL CALL YOU JITU BHAIYA,AS BHAIYA STANDS FOR BIG BROTHER THAT THING STRIKE IN MY MIND AND THAN HE TOOK ME TO A THE GUEST AT ONE OF HIS KNOWN PLACE . THERE I MET THE ENGLISH GUY WHOM VOICE I HEARD AS WHAT’S UP? I COULD NEVER GO BACK FROM HERE STILL, LIVING IN RISHIKESH AS EVERYONE KNOWS ME JITU BHAIYA . I STARTED MY OWN WORK HERE BUT NOT SUCCESSFUL SO FAR AND WITH THE SPENDING TIME I REACHED THAT TOMB AND OTHER I HAD IN MY DREAMS A YEAR BACK SINCE I SAW THOSE . THAT TOMB BELONGS TO AN OLD MONUMENT KNOWN AS BEATLES ASHRAM HERE. I MEAN I HAD FUTURE VISIONS OF MORE THAN A YEAR.
    ALL I WANTED TO SAY THAT IN THIS REAL LIFE I AM STILL DREAMING EVERYDAY AND I’M NOT ABLE TO LIVE A NORMAL LIFE AND IT ANNOYS MY FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY MY MOTHER . I AM STUCK IN LIFE. IS THERE ANYWAY OUT OF THIS TRAP OF DREAMS. I LOVE DREAMING AND I FEEL TO BE A SUBJECT FOR SOME EXPERIMENT ABOUT MY MIND AND I’M SURE IT WOULD BE A NEW INVENTION IN HISTORY OF SCIENCE .AS I FEEL SOME THING IN THERE.
    I FEEL I’M BLESSED AND HAVE BEEN MUCKING AROUND. NEEDS TO BE DONE AS IT HAS BEEN MENTIONED.
    JITU

    Hi, I have just found your website whilst looking for evidence of a theory that just came to me… It looks interesting and I am looking forward to exploring it further when I get home… I am a community support worker and I work with people with psychiatric disability, I was discussing voice hearing with a team mate and had a thought that hearing a voice auditory would require the use of a part of the brain that others don’t have… I am of the belief that any person with a “disability” (hate the term) actually has more areas of their brain functioning than us TABs (an affectionate term a teacher used for us Temporary Able Bods)… Just my thoughts !!!

    I have dissociative identity disorder so yes I hear voices of other parts of my psyche. They have their own names and personality. I have been living with this all my life due to severe trauma as a child. Just wondering why there is no mention of this type of hearing voices on this site. I realise that you don’t want to encourage labels or anything but DID is so often incorrectly labled schizophrenia and people are then incorrectly medicated for this and the meds often cause more problems than they fix.

    Several years ago I moved into a senior cizitens retirement community with my mother. She is getting along in years and I help as her care giver. I started having strange feelings of being haunted shortly after moving in, such as loud pops and funny noises, things that you might expect from a setting old house. This occurred regularly enough to cause me to mention these noises to some of my family members.

    Well, I began hearing the voices of these spirits around 9 months ago. My experience of hearing voices started with a “all of of a sudden” physical possession by some sort of dark entity. Boy, was I in trouble. These spirit voices were very clear and left me with no guess as to what was being said by these entities. No one would believe me when I asked for help in claiming that “my body has been invaded by a spirit!” This was the most longly feeling I have ever experienced. People are surely going to think me mad. Nonsense! I know what happened and nobody can convince me otherwise. “DEMONIC POSSESION!” This might sound like I may have watched to many movies or had a religous complex, but I am a very sound objective skeptic type thinker, and what a surprise to me!

    Anyhow, this spirit moved and cursed from within me, and believe me when I say that I could feel this invading spirit inside me! I went to a couple of preachers before I found group who helped me. I had a hands on healing that caused this creature to leave my body, and it spoke load and clear after leaving. However, I still hear many voices, some which continue to haunt me, while others are interested in helping me. I currently feel that I live with one foot inside the spiritual world most of the time. I do not believe that my case envolves any mental disorder. Maybe this might help someone, I don’t know. But I can hear the spirit of a person, who for some reason, remains stuck in this world after passing. Anywhere and at anytime where there is a spirit that may linger, I and can hear that spirit if the spirit is willing to communicate. But let me tell anyone you cares to read this that, “SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY YEAR SPIRITS!”

    Thankyou!
    Sincerely,
    William Cross

    I would like to suggest further research into the benefits of externalising voices, emotions and insights.
    Personaly, I had a paraniod psychosis while living with a loved one that heard multiple voices and had survived multiple suicide attempts.
    Used to being overly self-critical and idealistic, I had little defence against even the wildest notions(erratic thoughts) of stupidity, weakness of will and genetic inferiority that occured during said psychosis.
    Only when suddenly, I “heard voices”, making fun of my condition, I had evidence of external factors. And indeed childlike and incompetent factors, as I never have and hopefully never will make fun of any victims.
    Aware of the dangers involved when facing a bully, I took recourse into passivity. After my loved one left me, the symptoms subsided and I was able to analyse the experiences. I am now convinced of a dualistic existence.
    My girlfriend, which was high-functioning from my point of view, was able to comunicate and influence her voices and it seemed that most had a calming and empowering effect on her.
    Unfortunately, only later, I was able to share her fear of “modern” psychiatry.

    Thank you and the best of luck

    I don’t hear voices as such. But I hear other things. When I’m in supermarkets or public shopping places where there are speakers, I hear strange noises coming from the speakers. These are mainly bird noises but occasionally voices say derogatory things. It’s like I’m being watched. I hardly go to these kind of places anymore. I can hear these noises most of the time when I’m at work, out in public, or in conversation with other people. They can be distracting but I’ve learned to live with them. The weird thing is, sometimes, just sometimes, the noises are real birds or real people. So in this sense it is very hard to determine what is real or not- most of the time.

      Dal i have the same experience the only difference is a flooding feeling of paranoia goes over me then i hear noises, like whispers, outside of my head then the voices in my head tell me people are after me. I know its not true but its very difficult to ignore, But i find reading a book helpful i mean the noises are still there but escaping into the world in the book makes it easier.
      Hope it helps 🙂

    My mother has been labelled by my other family members as having a wide range of mental illnesses just because of the way her mind has decided to cope with traumatic experiences in her life. Like having delusions and hearing voices. I never thought anyone supported my theory that she wasn’t crazy rather she had been pushed too far with the many difficult circumstances that have plagued her life that she has no other way to cope but this. I’m so happy to find an organization that I believe can help us. I would love more information about how I can access it.

    I’m a targeted individual and a victim of voice-to-skull synthetic telepathy abuse. The covert remote acoustic assaults are unrelenting. Until the piggy backing private nitwits can be stopped, and brought to justice I’m forced to find ways of coping. A few things help. Putting on one or two earplugs with hand-held radio’s play music or talk type sound diffuses the v2k. Listening to static SM radio. Reading or listening to books. Activities that mildly distract. Talking internally say ‘Dorothy’, changes the v2k topic or “Gofzilla”.
