My voices are not internal, they are external. It is definitely and evil spirit. If I had a significant other, that person would hear the voices too during the quiet times, when I'm about to go to sleep. Does anyone else here believe that their voices are a result of an evil spirit, demon, or Satan? I have attempted to reach out to an exorcist, but he did not return my call.

When the voice is at a relatively low level I find that studying (focusing intensely on something) actually shuts him up. Being engaged in mindful conversation with another person also kills him. Other than that I have yet to find that any other technique works. And I've tried just about everything. Ive tried meditation and yoga (both of which makes the voice ten times worse), singing in my head, exercise, relaxation techniques, reasoning with him, listening and trying to cooperate with his apparent good suggestions while ignoring the rest, identifying themes to get more insight into why the voice might be saying certain things, counting, chores, petting my dog, walking, etc but none of those have worked
Cat,

Please know that my heart goes out to you. I am in the same boat as you. I am sane, and function well, go to work, but I hear these voices. They are external and the only saving grace is that I can sleep over it. Why we are chosen to go through this is a great mystery.

Here are a few techniques, and solving t echiques for voices; first and foremost is medication, I am on medication, though I don't have voices in the forms of which are being described, not of evil sort any way, also I listen to music, and I knit combined.

Furthermore, I do volunteering I am on call for volunteering and where where possible, music while I function for helping others.

It's vital that one sees the GP, or contact crisis team, to be assessed for the voices, and point you and or your partner if you have one, in the right direction.

Very interesting. Mine are definitely internally generated. I think different people hear voices for different reasons. In my case I don't feel chosen or like there is any particular meaning to the phenomenon. However, that doesn't mean I can't make the best out of the situation. So, given that I think my voices represent aspects of my subconscious, I use them to explore what's in my mind deep down in that place that people are generally not aware of. The disturbing discovery I have made is that I have a large amount of very dark material buried there. I can be rather dark on the inside. Ive also realized I'm rather insecure and will judge myself very harshly and abuse myself in a number of unflattering ways if I perceive anything less than perfection in myself. I am about to start exploring these things with my therapist to see if there is a way to change how I feel about myself deep down, so that I can change the contents of the voice to something more positive. Have you any ideas what your voices are about? Any ideas why you are chosen? Sending you a big hug, Cat.

My voices are external. They sound like devils or demons. It is because I am a 43 year old virgin.

He tells me to "burn" and says "I can't believe it" nonstop. Hundreds of times per day. I can also feel his energy around me.

Yes sorry. I was in the process of updating the website, that is now called "Schizophrenia Voices Info". The database stuff is now deprecated and the link was erroneous.
Hi Sscott. I just wanted to say I think it is amazing that you have created this database/website to help other voice hearers. I am certain you are making a difference to people out there! One day I hope to be of help to others too, but first I need to get a better handle on my own voices. Today they have been haunting me like there is no tomorrow. Lord almighty. Oh well, I shall continue on. Anyways, thanks again for being awesome!

Also holding it and focusing upon it helps in order to reduce the volume that these voices present.

This sounds to me, that you need to have professional mental h ealth help and t o have medication.

Also, you could try listening to music, and listen to music whilst at the computer, that could also work.


Best Wishes.

My thoughts are do not listen to the voices. I love the first post on this thread. I think those steps help. I hear voices have for years Now that I am aware of their destructive behavior I more use the steps outlined. I hate it when I am around others hearing voices at the same time. I am baffled with this. Usually have an episode. piss everyone off. Lots of love and hugs to all

These are all great bits of advice but personal
Let I ran an experiment based on what they were saying where even if by the smallest chance it was real I would provoke a reaction. This was carefully planned and every eventuality was accounted for in a way that would leave my competitor “voice in my head” completely and utterly fucked.

now 2 days on from this I now have no fear of the voices and just let them get on with it lol

Although not a cure it’s a cracking coping mechanism as they no longer have any control over you as you. Removed any angle they could use to potentially hurt you without completely being screened themselves
