Scientists have identified symptoms that may make people more willing to claim to “hear” the dead. A new study shows that people who describe themselves as “clariadiant” – as opposed to clairvoyant (“seeing”) or clariant (“feeling” or “sensing”) – typically have hearing hallucinations and childhood hallucinations. There are some symptoms, including sensitivity to experiences.
If you’re wondering why scientists are looking at time as abnormal, researchers say the study’s findings are of great importance in understanding the sometimes painful hearing hallucinations that can accompany mental health issues . His study is, aptly, published in Mental Health: Religion and Culture.
The claims of spiritualists, mediums, and psychology have fascinated scientists for a long time. The two meet with skepticism due to the lack of evidence, and there is genuine curiosity about why someone would claim that they could no longer live, make contact, or believe. Cheating is often the simple answer, and the fact that these experiences are extremely difficult to discredit – although it should be noted that they are notorious for proving. In a recent study, 12 self-declared means were prepared for testing that actually performed worse than the control group in attempts to contact the dead.
However, researchers led by the University of Durham wanted to find out that some people with these hearing experiences are more likely to adopt spiritualist beliefs and engage in the so-called practice of “listening” to the dead, while others who find the experience more disturbing Huh. Get a mental health diagnosis.
“Spiritualists report unusual hearing experiences that are positive, initiate life and which they are often able to control. The study co-authored, Dr. of Northumbria University. Peter Moseley stated in a statement that it is important to understand that this is important as it develops because it can help us understand more about the distressing or non-controllable experiences of hearing voices.
They recruited 65 members of the UK’s National Association of Spiritualists and 143 members of the public, who regularly claim not to hear the voices of the dead, but to make the greatest scientific investigation of the experience of clariadiant mediums yet. Researchers collected detailed descriptions on the mediums experiencing these “voices”, and compared levels of absorption, clarity to hallucinations, aspects of their identity, and belief in the paranormal.
They found that among self-proclaimed spiritualists, 44.6 percent claimed to hear the voices of spirits every day, and although these voices were heard primarily in their own heads (65.1 percent), 31.7 percent reported having both inside and outside the head. Experienced the sounds of the soul coming from. .
Compared to the control group, the results showed that spiritualists were more likely to report belief in the paranormal, and less likely to care about what people thought of them. Most of them experienced their first hearing when they were young, on average being 21.7 years old. They also reported high levels of absorption, a term used to describe total immersion in mental functions and how effective it is at getting someone out of the “outside” world. They also reported that they were more prone to “hearing experiences like abnormal hallucinations”.
For the general population, high absorption was associated with belief in the paranormal, but for hallucinations there was no link between that belief and clarity.
What these results suggest, researchers say, is less likely to suggest reasons to believe the paranormal is to claim that you can hear the sound of dead souls. Instead, people who adopt spiritualism are more likely to be young and experience abnormal hearing when they are young, and the belief of spiritualism aligns with their experience.
“Our findings say a lot about ‘learning and yearning’. For our participants, the principles of spiritualism are both exceptional childhood experiences as well as frequent auditory events,” from Hearing the Voice Project of Durham University Said lead researcher Dr. Adam Powell.
“But all those experiences can result in more than a few instincts or early abilities, believing the possibility of contacting the dead if a person put in enough effort.”
