So the voices have claimed to be the devil, jesus Christ that I am jesus Christ, Michael the archaengel , and the anti Christ.

Of course all of this is delusional.

So of course My new approach is to test the voices, and I advise every one else to do the same test your voices, demand evidence for their claims.

One of my tests is give me knowledge verifiable that I could have proving you are an external thought, and truly telepathic, and not just a broken chemical messenger, or a misfiring neuron.

Failure to provide knowledge that you can verify that you do not have means its all in your head, and not real.

Since performing this experiment on my voices I have slowly grew in confidence to defy them , and retake control of my mind.

This combined whith antipsychotics has allowed me to silence the voices even more.

I have also spoken with another member on here whom has written a treatise I advice reading known as emed.

One of his conclusions is referring to yourself in the first person more can help allievate symptoms I agree.

Further we both agree failure to directly confront the voices as lies and delusions will make the symptoms worse.

You have to know the voices are liars, and lies incarnate.

Challenge them to prove themselves.

This tactic has helped me imensley


Another tactic I employ against them is to force them to say silly little songs and rhymes my ability to force them to my will shows they are not telepathic but simply my mind feeding me lies.


My ability to control the voices increases daily as I continually put them to the test I gain confidence in my ability to control them.


I must stress these voices are not telepathy but merely your mind lying to you, if you doubt me put them to the test challenge them to prove they are truly telepathic.

This one simple test can prove conclusively whether or not they are telepathic if they fail to provide you with knowledge you don't have that you can verify clearly they are mere delusions and not true telepathic entities.


Mostly I disagree severly with current therapeutic treatemnets you need to confront your voices as liars lying to you.

The best way forward to deal with the so called voices, is to be placed onto medication, and listen to music, suitable to drown out the voices, no i don't mean volumne wise, I mean type of music, and exercising on a regular basis.

Now, there's no evidence for me to advise you because I couldn't spot a location where you are, to me seems you are in the States, or Austrailia, if overhere in Britain, then, certainly call crisis team, attached to cmht, Community mental health team, samaritans for reliveing the stress from the voices. Or book an appointment with general doctor.


However, if you do not live in Britain, at all, then sorry, I can't help you furhter and we cannot diagnose you further. You're best way forward is to receive an urgent general doctor help, if you are in the States or elsewhere, who would then refer you onto pshychartry doctor.


Once again, and I'll agree someone will or ought to come along in the fulness of time, with a more definitive and clear answers.


Nice to meet you.

I'm so happy that you've found a way to make the voices have less control over you! Thats awesome 😁 I hear voices. 4 diffrent ones. 3 of which are distracting and frusterating, but also comforting. They've been with me forever. These 3 help me thru my day and offer support and help stand up to the 4th voice which is not nice! I often find myself telling him No or to shut up. Telling him whatever hes making me see or feel isnt real. I have to say tho the meaner and more adamant I get that he's not real, he gets mad and threatens things. Which then scares me off. I have yet to find meds that actually help with the schizo symptoms and mood symptoms. The meds either made me a walking zombie or sucked every breathe of happiness from my body. I devolped the lovely twitch from them. I feel that everyone is driving their train in the best way possible and its refreshing to hear that someone has grabbed ahold of their stering wheel and takin back control. Thanks for sharing your techniques 😉 Hope your smilin 😁

Not everyone has the same journey. Not everyone has the aame answer. I have yet to find meds that "work." My therapists where stumpped by me and I spent most of my time using them as a sound board and hearing " I'll have to talk with my supervisor on that." Then never hear about it again. Or they would ask me " are u sure thats what your experiencing?" I have had little luck with consistant truly helpful professional help. Been kicking ass and taking names solo for awhile now. I stumble and fall and sgit is scary, but I've never been happier or my mind more clear. I'm figuring this out. Everyone of our journeys is diffrent with diffrent sollutions. Offer advise in a situation you can relate to. But remember this is their journey.

Congratulations. This approach worked for me too. I challenge every voice I hear and it has totally neutrolised the power of the voices that I heard.

I’m on a similar path with my voices and also fixed delusions.
Each time they tell me something negative (such as my family wants me dead), I search for the evidence to foster this voice or belief. If no evidence is truly found, then I know they are liars...pathological liars.
Medication and therapy works well for me but I still hear voices. One tip I use is wasabi paste. When my voices become too troublesome, I’ll have a suck on a tube of wasabi and trust me then the last thing I’m thinking about is the voices! My therapist has a seemingly endless supply of wasabi... it’s free and available at most sushi places.

What an awesome post hello513. I love what you write, about testing the voices, and I especially enjoy your attitude. Yes, meds are essential. But I test my voices too, and it really has an enormous impact for the better. I took it one step further, and I also test them on things they have previously stated. If they get it wrong, they crucify themselves. I achieve this by writing 1st person transcripts, that are a record of exactly what they said, and when they said it. It is a very effective way of testing, and defeating, them.
