So quick warning that this is coming from my personal experience, because I have dealt with hallucinations for 8 years and these are the only ways I have found to deal with them. If others have their own suggestions please feel free to comment!
One of the BIGGEST things that helped me with dealing with my hallucinations was clearing my home of bad energy and spirits. I identified where I experience hallucinations at the worst (places, rooms, certain people, etc.), and prepare accordingly. For example, my dad’s house is very toxic for multiple reasons. I am going home for Thanksgiving this week, so I will be bringing sage with me to clear the house before we begin cooking dinner. I have to repeat this EVERY time I go to my dad’s house, but it helps.
When I move, I always clear out the home and my boxes of items with sage before finishing the move. I have an essential oil diffuser that I keep on in my house throughout the day, or I will burn incense. This mostly just keeps my mind at rest and creates a calm energy for me. Drinking calming teas also helps relax my mind and create a safety bubble for myself away from the voices.
I also meditate frequently using guided meditation. I do not meditate in silence because that leaves me vulnerable to voices, but with guided meditation it recharges and leaves me stronger.
When the above don’t help, I reach out to my friends, family, and the other members of FSM. It does not make the hallucinations stop but it does help me deal with them and stay safe until they stop.
The only thing that has entirely gotten rid of my hallucinations is medication, though. I recommend the above in addition to medication, or if medication is not available to you. I recommend the above because by creating a clean, calm, safe environment for myself it is more difficult for voices to invade my safespace.
I get all of my oils, my diffuser, teas, and more from my sister’s business as http://www.lafayetteorganics.com/. They often have discounts posted on their facebook page, and their products are super quality and amazing.
I usually put their anxiety oil in my diffuser, and I usually burn Jasmine incense. My favorite tea is peppermint but I mean, find the one that makes you feel nice and fuzzy!
I hope this helps you out! Check the comments for other people’s suggestions! Hugs and good luck— we are rooting for you!
