When spirit (divine or departed spirits) speaks I do listen to each and every word, attentive to correctly discern whatever message, warning, blessing or deception that I may be receiving.
There are some individuals who definitely suffer from mental illness. They hallucinate and have delusions. They see and hear things that have not actually occurred and they hold on to a reality that does not exist.
Do all people who claim to have had a paranormal experience suffer from some type of mental disorder, absolutely not! In fact, I honestly believe that a great number of people have erroneously been committed into psychiatric institutions due to the fact of their preternatural abilities.
And after they’ve been hospitalized over periods of time and heavily medicated some then began to acquire certain mental disorders.
So many innocent individuals have been so wrongly misdiagnosed as schizophrenic and/or bipolar (manic depression) all because they were born with gifts and because of the ignorance and haste of narrow minded doctors who were quick to act out on their own generalized notions and assumptions.
Luckily, I’ve never had to go through such an ordeal of that nature, but I personally know people who have. And I have had a similar situation with an ignorant doctor at gynecology who looked at me as if I were crazy when my stomach continued to move on its own (push in an out from negative energy) due to my extreme spiritual sensitivity.
There are also conspiracies geared toward those who possess forms of psychic ability.
Sometimes people seek out to intentionally have clairvoyants/psychics committed only to have them experimented on and damaged in an attempt to alter or completely destroy their paranormal gifts (it was tried on me as a young teenager; however the plot ended up in failure).
Voices from the spirit realm often come across as soft spoken whispers. At other times they may come across as clear normal vocal tones or through sound tones-where one would have to make out their words through harmonic/cognizant interpretation.
There is contact that can also be made by “energy” communication, natural forces of the universe.
Messages can and do come in distinct noises and musical tones just as well as the regular vocal ranges.
Sometimes spirits speak out all at once making it rather difficult to completely understand what they are trying to relay.
And this may seem annoying or torturing while in the early stages of development as the mind continues to race with a combination of experiences.
Sometimes the spirits even converse with one another, and talk over one another, each one anxious to get their point or message across.
Over time the strong and disciplined clairvoyant learns to become accustomed to the voices along with the other paranormal things associated with the gifts that are bestowed.
