Voices while meditating???

3 years, 2 months ago

Hey, I have a question for all those that meditate (I’m sure there are a lot).

A few days ago I had really good progress in meditating, then the last two days I couldn’t get anywhere near where I had gotten. But today when I tried again, it was like I heard a voice in my head, like a narrator speaking in a movie. It was quite a surreal experience, but it kinda freaked me out, too.

Ever since then, I’ve felt so much more energized, which leads me to believe it’s part of the process.

What do you all think? Did I achieve a higher level of mental clarity, or do I need to find a psychiatrist?

Maybe it’s your ego trying to cleverly creep back in, by trying a new and unfamiliar approach.
Or perhaps you have just gained a new level of awareness of the voice that is always there, thus hearing it in a new way.

Read the flower of life by Dunvalo Melchiezedek, I may have spelled that wrong. He talks about talking to your higher self through meditation. It’s up to your judgement though.

trying is already an indication of that which does not need to try but thinks it should in order to prove itself to its own doubt.

I’ve heard voices too, but they were emerging from old memories, most of them I could recognize.

Then there was this one time, when I fucked up trying some new type of meditation, where a different voice spoke for awhile afterwards, like a secondary consciousness. Told me I was doing it wrong and how to do it better.

Do you want to hear from some body who has channeled for decades, your Self intuition can sort of talk to you but not correctly as it is only physical, the next step is to join your soul and heart together and connect through your spirit body you see you have a physical and spirit intuition.
All energy needs to go through your soul and heart never your head other wise you channel the energy outside your body which is generally confusion.
Secondly and most importantly all consciousness isn’t only in your head, if you treat your self this way in a meditation you’ll spin out, point your hands to the ground before you start a meditation and sense your self go down, repeat this after any meditation but ensure your standing, your probably light headed to start with now so give it a go this will ease that floaty feeling.

Whenever I hear a voice, I question them thoroughly. I usually conclude the voice is myself. A part of my brain that doesn’t think about what it’s saying. I use my inner voice to learn the truth about who I am. I am never afraid, for what kind of creature would harm itself.

I can hear sometimes (when I’m in some kind of meditational state) a voice of the narrator too…it’s just like someone is reading the news on tv and he/she talks about random stuffs…I’ve never thought about it and now I know I’m not the only one :D

So it’s completely normal that while i was meditating tonight I said to myself “I want to be a leader…” a voice interrupted me and screamed “YOU ARE A LEADER!” Is that my higher self? I opened my eyes and whispered “who are you??”

Voices could be from your Higher self, your guides/angels, from entities, etc..
Only you could know!
Myself, i often hear voices when i’m in trance. Some voices are smooth talking like angels. Others are scary like a old crazy woman laughing like she wanted to kill me oO and others were like i was listening to a show. ^^’

Keep trying to reach that state and keep your mind open to new things. Maybe you’ll find a higher state of being.

While I was meditating today, I heard a voice. The voice didn’t sound like how the voice sounds in my head when I’m thinking. It wasn’t a voice I had ever heard before either. The voice said to me “Kyle, can you feel the vibrations?” That instantly startled me & I almost lost my focus & opened my eyes while I was meditating.

I have been trying to contact my spirit guide so maybe that’s who the voice belonged to. The one time I have ever been able to astral project was when I asked my spirit guide to help me do so.

@jetsetplayboy, Yo,
it’s totally normal. Just listen to it, don’t provoke it, and let it pass

@jetsetplayboy, I’m assuming you were just observing your own voice. You took a step back into the observer mode, which is what happens when we meditate, and you were watching your own voice from a third perspective, when in reality we are always doing so.

It’s normal, it was “your” mind. You were near the truth, go ahead.

i used to meditate regularly a few years ago, then one day i heard a voice say “poser”, like I was a fake. i scared me and i pretty much stopped after that. i want to start again, but i’m scared. I think it was my ego trying to fight my growing self awareness and although it sounds simple enough to just keep going, i want to have an affirmation or something in place in case it happens again. Suggestions?

Try to observe all the voices in your head. Figure out the different personalities with each voice, how they think, what their memories are, and how they conceptualize the world. You might find the mind is not one entity but rather a vast array and network of alternate selves, both in kid, teenager, and adult forms. We then have our higher self and then various personalities that can deviate from it.

Depending who you ask, some might say that this is the first step to acquire memories from your past lives. Of course, that will eventually require a belief in reincarnation, and you will need to learn to discern mind-fuck from the real. That or you will have a great time with your imagination. Either way, real is whatever you make it.

Your welcome, but be patient with such a technique. It takes dedication and time, but can be worth it. Usually, it is helpful to those who experienced trauma, especially as younger children. That said, All can benefit!
