    Try meditation. Meditation is the practice of quieting the mind. It can be difficult even for people who do not hear voices but with practice becomes easier. I believe that state of mind has much to do with the types of voices heard. If one, does a lot of negative self talk and has a negative outlook on life then the voices tend to be negative but this can be changed to positive and then the voice change to positive. I'm not saying it's easy to do this, however, it gets easier with practice. I believe showing the voices love and compassion is also key. Try telling them you love them and you want them to get out of the sadness they feel. You want them to be happy. Also looking at it from a different perspective can almost immediately shift your vibration and shift the "evil" voices to more positive or even stop them all together. There is nothing wrong with you. You are loved and you will improve. Believe it and you will receive it. Sorry for that last little cliche.

    I don’t hear voices in my head. Just sometimes my ears start ringing then I hear screaming. Sometimes within the screams I hear insults but mostly it’s just a bunch of people just yelling. When I was younger i could make out my family members yelling at me mixed with random screams. Recently it was just screaming. I don’t hear this all the time just randomly or when I’m overly stressed. I don’t know what this is.

    I named the voices in my head. Usually when I first noticed they are there, I don't know what they look or sound like. Then I see their silhouette, and soon after, hear their voice. A while after that I see what they look like. I have seen 2 so far. Cio, and Ydoc.

  • Leon Voerman
    Leon Voerman 2 months ago

    At the start of the video he explains where voices (possible) come from. However, the voices in my head sound like malformed sounds rather than thoughts.
    My thoughts effect the sounds I hear in my surrounding, like how I hear the winds and cars passing by and stuff. These sounds talk to me.

    What is also strange is that my thoughts sound malformed and don't sound how thoughts should, but rather like a bad quality radio voice.

    I sometimes lose my shit and get really annoyed and pissed off, not because I hear voices or because of what they say, but because my thoughts sound like a f*cking radio voice and repeat everything 10 times and the sounds my surroundings are getting f*cked aswell.

      Voices in your head doesn't always mean you have schizophrenia.
      However, if medicine fails you know you're somewhat screwed, but don't lose hope. I've tried 8 different kind of antipsychotic medicine before I finally found one that worked.
      That doesn't mean I'm cured but it got hell of a lot better.

    I love when people parrot their education. Parroting is not necessarily right or wrong, but just getting a better grade on how well you can parrot what you are told. A book is great for comprehending and a great reference for parroting what was in the book. The book is not right or wrong it is what it is from a perspective of the maker of the book, nothing more or nothing less. Now run along my little minions and consume what it is written and if you can parrot it's words within, you will be better able to judge such matters with one way of looking at it and say ...I read it in a book, I parrot it's contents well and therefore it is gospel truth. meanwhile the human mind and the place we live in is still lost on you.

    I get annoyed because I don’t hear voices but I can hear myself talk and I can’t control it and it comes out of nowhere and sometimes it gets so fast and crazy that I can’t concentrate on anything. I have full on back and fourth conversations with myself in my head or out loud. My friends and family have heard me just reply to myself out of nowhere. 🤧 and when it’s quiet and I’m not hearing myself my ears just ring.

    I do have depression and anxiety as well.
    The voices tell me about my worthlessness and also say:
    “Why are you here? You don’t belong to be on earth”.

    I know that you guys aren't doctors... but... I have a lot of the symptoms of schizophrenia and I hear one voice, and I call... it Craig the crazy one and it tells me things that aren't true at all like," no one likes you, your friends are only your friends because they feel obligated to be your friend". And sometimes for no reasons I start biting of hitting myself, though I've been able to control it more it is still a problem. And apart from the voice telling me thing, I'm always paranoid and my heart rate is always up....... please....help...please I cant Stanton it it is literally driving me more crazy. Also I have told no one about things and I dont know how to approach it to my parents and my friends.i also listen to rap and bass heavy songs because the voice likes it and he quites down.
