Have you heard the voice?
The reason so many people have this strange sense that someone is talking to them through their internal speaker system, even when there’s no one else in the room with them, is because they are constantly broadcasting just loud enough for the inside of their head to pick it up.
Have you ever had a dream where you were talking to someone only to realize, once you wake up, there was no one there? That’s what it sounds like to me.
I can also hear other peoples voices after they die. I know this is supposed to be spooky, but honestly it isn’t. I read something about how we choose our inner voices, which starts before birth. I think everyone has access to these voices, whether we listen to them or not.
What happens when we don’t speak back to our inner voices? They stop speaking to us.
So why do we talk to ourselves anyway? Maybe we’re doing it to get each other’s attention. Sometimes we say things out loud that we want to remember for later.

How does self-compassion feel?
Compassion is an extremely valuable skill to have. Why? Because when you show compassion towards yourself, you open up your heart to love more easily.

What does the voice mean?
Believe it or not, there are many people out there who hear voices that they assume were made by others. These “others” may be pets, spirits, aliens, God, the universe, something or someone unknown, etc.
Some individuals claim to receive messages from outside sources. Some of these external forces can actually be internal processes going on inside our minds. The mind is such an incredible organ but we also have free will; therefore, other entities can supposedly use what they learn about us through our thoughts.
Healing methods like Reiki rely on this same concept for their effectiveness. A patient is told to imagine healing energy flowing into their body. As they let themselves believe this, the brain emits all sorts of hormones including endorphins which make them feel better. In addition to telling the brain how to help itself heal, the imagination plays a key role in letting them feel some sort of control over the situation.
By allowing ourselves to think things, even if it’s just for a few seconds, can give ourselves confidence in handling a situation that might otherwise seem impossible to deal with. This helps us move forward in any way.
Believe it or not, there are many people out there who hear voices that they assume were made by others. These “others” may be pets, spirits, aliens, God, the universe, something or someone unknown, ect.
How do I hear the voice?
The most common way to hear a voice is with so-called psychoacoustic noise, also called environmental noise or background noise. This type of noise comes from sources everywhere, including your home’s built-in appliances (other than what you might call “silent”), other people’s conversations, animals, traffic, music in constant playback, and streams and rivers.
Some types of ambient noises can be louder than others, but they are all there, regardless of volume. For example, the sound of flowing water is very prevalent when you live near an ocean or large lake.
The voices you hear often depend on your hearing sensitivity, such as where you start seeing hearing loss, how long you have been deaf, etc. But even if you were totally normal hearing at birth, you could still experience voice changes and/or hallucinations due to excessive stress, anxiety, or depression.
These symptoms may come and go, or they may become more intense over time. They usually get better on their own, though no one can predict exactly when that will happen. Many factors could contribute to your experiencing voice changes; however, nothing else matters for this article except the question of whether you heard a voice just before midnight on October 1, 2010!
That’s right—on Halloween, many residents of San Francisco woke up with a clear auditory impression that someone was standing behind them, when they knew there was no one. A similar
Who or what is the voice in my head?
This could be someone you know or yourself, it depends on which part of your mind you are talking about. These voices that we hear inside our heads are often referred to as ‘voices’, but they can also be called thoughts, messages, ideas, etc.
People have different names for these inner conversations that run through their minds. Names vary from person to person.
What matters is not its name but rather its function. Are these voices helpful or harmful? Can we identify those that speak up without judgment? Or perhaps only some of them ring true, while others fade away into the background?
If so, then these could very well be mental health issues. The way to tell if something is abnormal, the first step towards healing, or something to fear depends largely on the context.
Is this message centered around you or focused upon another topic? How much control do you feel over this conversation? More than one thing at a time? Less? Find out how much control you think you have over this conversation and see where that puts you.
Consider getting help. If you are hearing a voice with anxiety attached to it, there is a good chance that it is psychological in nature and thus should be looked at by professionals.
However, being aware that it is simply a voice going off in your head is a huge step forward.
Is there a silent voice?
A few years ago, I was having dinner with my old college roommate, Dave. We had just moved into our first apartment together, and were unloading some boxes from our car.
Among all the crap we found two old phone bills that showed how many calls we’d each made to each other over the past year. Mine has “No one is here… can you hear me?” printed right above it.
We were both pretty shocked by this insane level of communication. Both of us thought things like, “I wonder what she said when he called last week!”
Six months later, we still wondered why we’d even have these phones in the first place. They must be for emergency purposes only. No one ever uses them anymore – not even people who are separated.
But they serve as evidence that someone is always on the other end responding to your messages or calling you back. And maybe more important than anything else, they prove that person once lived their life trying to get through each day while also facing their own demons.
What do I do about the voice?
Introduction.- If you hear a voice that talks to you, be confident in what you are doing right now reading this article or if you’re hearing me (if you aren’t listening to your own voice). Try paying more attention to how my words make you feel. Is there something in my tone of voice, such as whether I sound concerned or anxious?
Does it follow that A person is talking inside your head.
Yeah, that sounds pretty crazy, but according to science, it’s true!
The type of voice we have is called our “vocal range”. It can change depending on things like mood, feeling, and position.
Our vocal range does not define who we are; however, it plays a significant role in how people perceive us. With that said, here are some ways you can adjust to your changing voice, so you can get closer to its root cause.
First, try to relax yourself and take care of your body. This includes being sure to avoid any behavior that would worsen your pain.
Second, find a place where you can listen to music without distractions. Then set up a time to see a trusted friend or therapist.
Third, know your history and learn everything you can about your voice. Next, start noticing your voices quirks and see what works for you and what doesn’t.
Finally, remember that treatment doesn
Who or what is the voice coming from?
This question came up for me when I was in therapy to figure out why I had a chronic pain condition. The doctor asked it, but he didn’t give us any official answer. He just said that we could each have multiple voices in our head, three actually, and they can make you feel like something is wrong while being normal.
He told us this played with your psychological stability and could really mess with you if you weren’t careful. I wondered at the time whether what he called “voices” were separate entities as well, or instead dramatic moments where several voices all suddenly spoke together.
Later I learned that people with mental illnesses can also hear messages or comments from outside sources. These could be phrases people say to themselves, or other noises they hear, such as their own breathing or humming when they are relaxed.
I guess the message here is don’t trust everything you think you hear!
Do I have a voice problem?
If you’re hearing voices, it can be difficult to know if these are actual thoughts spoken out loud or just imagined sounds.
Some people hear things that others don’t even notice or consider them to be noise. But what about those times when you just “know” something is wrong?
These feelings are called hypervigilance symptoms. They can occur for many reasons, but most often they go hand in hand with anxiety.
Consider this example: Someone who is highly anxious might envision her house burning down every time she walks into the hallway.
Her nerves make her think there’s danger everywhere, so when she hears footsteps in the hall, she braces for disaster.
This person feels constantly on edge because of his constant fear. He over-intrusiveness scores poorly in terms of self confidence and happiness.
Another way anxiety affects us is by causing us to see threats where none exist. Most times we detect smell or sound alone. The brain also includes another sense to interpret data. This includes touch (fingers brushing hair), taste (spicy foods), and position (nose wrinkling).
We combine all of these interpretations together and label them as ‘perception.’ That’s why someone may feel more pain through vision than via hearing.
It’s not only painful, but it’s also exhausting. When our nervous
Can I be heard by the voice?
This is an important question, as most of us have experienced being in some kind of pain (physically or emotionally) when we’ve asked someone to help you but they never hear you.
It’s helpful to know what might have caused you not to be able to speak at that moment.
Perhaps you were scared for your life. Or maybe it was just because you didn’t feel like talking.
But even if you weren’t in danger, you may still feel reluctant to tell others about something that’s going on in your life.You shouldn’t judge yourself for this.
If you think you’re seeing voices, remember that “I am hearing things” can mean many different things.
Maybe you imagine you’re hearing voices or sometimes actually hear sounds that people make–other people’s music or other people’s conversations.
Or perhaps you picture or detect movements of objects around you.
And just because you see, hear, smell, feel, or sense something doesn’t mean it’s real.
That’s called tactile perception. We perceive both touch and sound through our skin and ears, respectively.
