2020 has been a very hard year for the world and I have been more in tune with my religious side than before. I'm probably not alone in that there are nights when I just can't sleep, bothered by the uncertainty of it all and how alone quarantine has made me feel. I work a job that has gone completely remote, so here I am living right in the city, yet having very little contact with the outside world. It's been hard for me in general and the isolation can be all consuming, not knowing when this will all be resolved. Some nights I need answers and find my patience wearing thin.
Occasionally when I have a hard time sleeping I will pray and ask for answers about life's biggest questions. Things like the state of the world, the state of humanity, and why I am treated the way I am by society.
And occasionally, I will get an answer. Sometimes it comes to me as a thought hitting me in the head like a lightning bolt, something I had never thought of my own or would think to say. It's almost like someone else is responding to me.
And other times, I'll find myself whispering these thoughts out of nowhere, phrases that may be answers to the questions I ask. The voice that comes out is my own, but the speech is something that's like a reply. I just can't explain it so I'll leave it up to you guys.
Has anyone ever had an experience where your questions are answered by an entity, but in your own voice and coming out of your own vocal cords? Who or what could possibly be communicating to me in this manner?
