    Tactile hallucinations again after a decade

    It's been ten years since my last tactile hallucination. The last two days my skin has literally been crawling, even though there is nothing there. I feel things touching and crawling around.

    Tactile hallucinations and what you feel

    Sometimes when you are having tactile hallucinations it can be easy to be seduced into extending ones senses beyond that of the body, so that you start to “feel” the space around you. I just wanted to say that from a mindfulness perspective this is a really bad idea, if you can focus just on the...

    Medicated dreams...

    Does this happen to anyone? That you're anxious all day and the brain is making up stories, and then you have meds at night and something totally different happens. Yesterday my psychosis was all about losing parts of the energy body, very stressful, lots of tactile stuff. And then after I...

    Techniques that help with Tactile Sensations

    Since I often have sensations of being able to feel my energy body, I thought I would post up a few things that have helped me from time to time. I was listening to Eckhart Tolle, an audiobook of his book A New Earth - Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, and I came across an exercise where he was...

    Chanting and tactile hallucinations

    As some of you may know I sometimes do chanting exercises, and I've noticed over the last couple of days that if done right they can have a very interesting effect on the tactile hallucinations that I sometimes get. So I thought I'd post it up under experiences and maybe someone will benefit...

    I hear a voice in the form of tactile hallucinations

    Hi. I'm new to the forum and at times, like now, I become despairing. I fear that my voices are quite rare but really do hope there is someone out there who can relate to me. I am diagnosed Bipolar I and have had 3 strong relapses, all with severe psychosis. I'm a 37 yr old male and have...

    I got voices on and off through the day, they are instructional, derisive, accusatory, pleasant and can interupt my thoughts/thinking. I cogitate about why this is, if it's telepathy, brain damage from extended street drug use through the ninties, a difficult birth with prolonged umbilical...

    I can smell something

    Over the last few weeks I have been smelling the smell of burning or sulphur and whenever I ask people if they can smell it too they always say no. It's strange and wondered if anyone else gets unusual smells because I have heard that as well as tactile feelings you can also smell things too...

    Tactile (Physical) Sensations

    Hi, I've been hearing voices now for seven months. My experience has been good and bad, the worst being a suicide attempt that put me in the ICU for a week. At times the voices are muted and other times they're chaotic, irrepressible and quite frankly, crazy. I've never been told to hurt...
