I think I can talk to gods, you too?

Hi there,

Firstly I want to tell you that I am French so sorry for my bad English.

I have been schizophrenic for many years now and like a lot of others, I had voices in my head and hallucinations. sometimes I believe that the voices come from some gods or deities, do you think the same?

thank you in advance for your answer !

A lot of our memebers have English as a second or even third language. Don’t sweat it.

Also, the voices are just from your brain. No dieties.

And,

sounds like hallucinations on top of a delusion.

the voices can personify though.

Welcome to the forum

Welcome to our little corner of the internet. Happy to have you.

I believed for many years that my voices were spirits and angels. I still question it, but I try very hard to tell myself it’s only part of the illness.

It’s a tough battle trying to stay lucid and have insight. Reality checking Is good.

Have a nice day.

I don’t hear voices so no.

Yeah, I talk to myself all the time.
I’m king of the castle and master of my domain. Wanna bet?

It’s nice to meet you! Welcome to the forum! I hope you can find some degree of support here. :slight_smile:

I personally have bipolar disorder type 2, but have experienced psychosis in several forms. I don’t recall ever having delusions about talking to gods, but I have had delusions of grandeur where I’ve believed that I was a god of some sort or some important religious figure. I also tend to have “supernatural” hallucinations, which gets confusing since I consider myself a spiritual person and I don’t know if I’m perceiving my surroundings correctly or not. Do you experience similar things?

The voices are not dieties

Voices are not spirits, gods, or deities. They’re just the due to psychosis

Everytime I prayed and heard God, I got psychosis. I take that hearing my priest is a sign of an upcoming psychosis. For me I think praying triggers these voices but sometimes I also heard them when I wasn’t praying so not sure, for sure its the voice of my priest at church. Once I heard many priests praying on me, its that time that I tried to kill myself with an overdose.

It was like if it was my funeral and priests were praying on my dead body before burrying me.

I think you can hear from dieties. I think God can heal people and I don’t think voices could do that.

I sometimes have voices who claim they are God. Don’t believe a word of it.
