telepathy!?! *honestly!*
Answer
3/1/19 6:11 AM
Okay so bizarre thing - which has lately been making me think I am psychotic - i.e I have been hearing people's voices in my head and get a sense of the location and often times a picture. Today I was sleeping and woke up to a voice in my head saying 'where are you?' and a sense of the place I was meant to be at, at that exact time.  I was bang on when my appointment that I missed was and the location.  This keeps happening and is super accurate.  

As I am now keeping a log, this has happened with far too great a frequency of accuracy to be wrong.  The thing is sometimes I dont know where or who it is coming from and I actually find myself trying to wrestle to find out who, why and where.  Obviously I am getting caught up here.  Or am I psychotic!?!

I am being 100% honest here.

Is there some way to make it fun or profit from it?  I feel like that might take the seriousness out of it, if you know what I mean.

I think it's when I hear some troubling random things and I am struggling to know where they have come from.  But yes I could certainly have a go at making it fun....

What sort of troubling voice?  What does it say, if that's not too personal?

Well its not one thing you see - it tends to be related to people I know - sometimes I'll feel like I want to cry or that something is wrong with someone, sometimes I know who exactly it is, as I get a sense of them and can act to contact them - other times I just dont know but kinda feel the distress isnt mine.

My gut feel is that you have uncovered some sort of painful memory.  What about taking your documented notes to a skilled and experienced  EMDR therapist and get it processed?  Do you know about EMDR?

Are you stressed and maybe not getting enough sleep ?

There are actually many people hearing voices without being psychotic. I remember a conference presentation about this, but right now I’m unable to recall the name of the researcher.

Since there is no separate and integrated self, it can be other mental processes belonging to ”your” mind - or perhaps belonging to some other mind as I guess we are all connected. Maybe some part of you was aware that you were supposed to be at that place. Maybe you are just more perceptive to the internal chatter than the average individual. And maybe you are also more perceptive to processes going on outside ”your” mind, something that could theoretically be available to all of us of we weren’t so hardcoded to perceive of our minds as separate entities.

If the voices are disturbing your daily life or starts telling you to do things that are harmful, or if you are getting paranoid about them, you need to seek help. Otherwise... I have as an assignment to listen to inner mental talk, so whenever I actually notice something, I celebrate.

I actually have a friend who has been hearing voices like this for many years. He also has very vivid dreams and lucid dreams. I think of it as a talent.

Hi there,
The voices are in my head and like faint echoes!  Not like a psychotic delusion outside the head and do correspond with everyday life.

Maybe there is a part of me that has a real knowdlege of everything.  It started on a Goenke retreat where I noticed a voice commenting on things before I became consciously aware of them and actually noticed the voice and then whatever was happening in the environment.  This voice is also observing the environment but it much perceptive and way.  It has continued on.  I also notice when I am on retreat I am execeptional at time keeping, like I dont need a bell.

I agree with you.  I think there is a kind of observer mind that sees and experineces everything and much more fully than I do.  So perhaps my sense of interconnectedness comes when I am connected to this part of myself.  Perhaps this part is the divine part and I am just the person bumbling along and not seeing clearly.

Hi right on track,

Yes, I believe my path is also bring up old trauma etc and when Goenka speaks of samskara this is the somatic reliving of the trauma in the body in order to release it.  I think this path is much more taxing for those with a trauma history but I wouldnt be on the path if it werent for my suffering and I wouldnt be working through the trauma if it werent for the path.  If that makes sense.

Cool! Yeah, I think it had to do with being very perceptive.

I think solidifying these comments as one voice that sees everything could possibly lead you astray, though. It might be different mental processes commenting different things. Some of it may be really profound observations, other things possibly just banal or on the same insight level as the rest of ”you” or maybe sometimes less. Being able to access all these different mental processes may give you important insights into the self as a mere construction. Buying into the content, on the other hand, may not be so helpful with regard to awakening, if that is what you are aiming at.
