For some people, it’s normal to hear the dead. They hear voices of loved ones who have died as well as voices of people who they might not know. A chatbot is a device that can be used to listen to people who have died. Durham University, a school in the United Kingdom, conducted a study involving mediums and how they have been able to hear voices of those who have died perhaps hundreds of years ago. Mediums might be a bit more sensitive to noises and visual cues compared to those who aren’t mediums. Some of the auditory voices could be hallucinations. However, there are some people who believe that it’s possible to hear people who are dead if you pay attention.
Mediums who hear spirits are said to have clairaudient communication. This is different from being clairvoyant as it’s hearing spirits instead of seeing them. The study conducted by Durham University featured over 60 mediums. There were also over 140 members of the public included in the study. Many of the mediums involved reported hearing the dead from the time they were younger. A large number of the mediums in the study also had a trait called absorption. This is a trait that is related to various states of being conscious, which is important for hearing or seeing spirits.
If someone thinks that they hear someone who has died, then they usually begin performing research pertaining to the paranormal or even spirituality. Most mediums and others who hear the dead have positive experiences, especially if they start younger in life. They are usually able to control the voices that are heard, turning them off if they don’t want to connect to them. If more information is gathered about hearing the dead, then it could help with some of the voices that aren’t as pleasant. Sometimes, people who hear voices that are angry or that aren’t positive could have schizophrenia or another type of mental disorder, which is what the study from the university wants to look into.
Some mediums and spiritualists report hearing voices in their head and outside as well. They usually don’t care what people think about them as they know what they have heard. It’s often difficult to try to explain what the sounds of the dead are like if someone else hasn’t heard them. Many people who have higher levels of absorption in the general public tend to believe in the paranormal to some extent, making it easier for them to accept what they hear instead of questioning the voices of the dead.
Many spiritualists often report hearing their first voices around the age of 21 while members of the general public might report hearing voices a bit later in life. Some spiritualists and mediums have reported hearing voices since they were children. Those who hear voices aren’t considered giving into the pressure given by those in society. Instead, they have an understanding of what they’re hearing and want to look into it further.
Some people are simply able to hear voices of those who have died while others might not be able to hear anything at all. This isn’t something to be afraid of or ignored. It’s often a trait that is embraced so that people can begin to listen a bit more intently to the voices that are head in order to decipher them. Some people who hear voices can distinguish male and female voices as well as the distinct sound of family members and those who they don’t know. For some people, experiences that they have had in childhood have resulted in hearing voices as an adult.
