I hear voices- am I sane?

Dear Sahar,

Thank you so much for reading my letter and for replying.  I know that if you did this for everyone you would be in some form of financial trouble, as I’m guessing that this is a main source of income for you. So again thank you, I am very grateful.  

I was born on March 3rd, 1982, in Denver, CO. Basically, before I go to sleep I hear voices, have conversations in my mind, sometimes I’ll see things that I don’t really understand or can’t fully make out. Now please believe me I think of myself as very sane person, considering the world we live in today.  

I’d like to know if this is just a result of my over active imagination or something else? Am I making these things up?  If not, what can I do to understand these things and help them to come through more clearly?

I understand that you can’t make any kind of living by giving freely.  I’m looking for any kind of direction, there’s an immense hole in my life and i desperately desire answers.  I know that the only answers I truly need are within myself, though I still desire any input you could provide. Again thank you so much for giving me some of your time, I truly appreciate it.


Dear L,

Wow! Thank you for emailing your details and picture. Your numbers are interesting showing a real talent for communications and for channelling, which I suspect is what is happening to you. It is known as clairaudient: ability to hear spirits, etc.

Do not freak out and keep the following in your mind:

  1. “Anything in a body is stronger than anything in spirit”, my mentor and friend, Keith Casburn, once told me (see his book review)! If you do not like what is happening, or it gets heavy, just say NO! I do not wish for this, … stop talking to me, … leave in peace… etc.
  2. You have to read and meditate to understand how to control, and not to be frightened by what is happening; I suggest the following (see below also), but since you are in USA, check amazon.com:

    – Book: Opening to Channel: How to Connect with Your Guide Sanaya Roman, Duane Packer, pub. HJ Kramer, Tiburon, CA, 1987. Amazing book, and will explain it all. The basics are well explained. An essential starting point.

    – Meditation CD that is powerful (I will review that soon on PS Magazine): “Taking Charge of your Life”, by Mary Bell Nyman (which will be on sale soon, so keep checking her website, or write to her; her institute is based in Boulder, CO; perhaps you can sign up for courses there!).

Try both and let me know how you feel.


  1. When you are in bed, I would like you to visualise an I-Max, 360 degrees, movie screen around you head. And see it blank as you fall asleep. Keeping it blank is, as the silver white screen around your head will protect you from these ‘voices’ or any negative psychic ‘attack’; also helps to empty your mind in preparation for good night sleep. I leant this from my teacher, Terry Tasker, in mediumship class, and have been applying it since then.
  2. Also, if you choose to go on your spiritual path, take control:
    ask to receive communication only from positive ‘voices’, if they have something positive to say, and only if they are from the light- higher beings. You can set the time for such communication. When I first started, guides used to wake me up after mid-night or early morning hours!

This can be a good, quiet time to focus, but there is a practical life to manage- for us who are still in a body! This amused my teacher and friend, Merryn Jose who pointed out “what are you going to do about this? It’ll be funny if you were to only work (with your guides), and ask your clients to see you at those times!”

3. You can set the quality and time to communicate. Ruth White discusses that in her book: Working with Guides and Angels, Ruth White, pub. Piatkus Books 1996. I recently read this beautiful little book and found to include potent meditation techniques. No nonsense, sound advice. Strongly recommend.

Hope above helps.

Love and light to you, and enjoy your journey,

P.s.  May I remind you L, that your soul number, from your date of birth, is 8 = destined to fulfil big purpose in life!
