Can normal people have hearing voices?

Yes. In some communities there are individuals who claim to have
an ability to communicate with supernatural forces and spirits.
These people may experience hearing of voices, particularly of
spirits or God. They may also have beliefs which seem unusual, for
example that the spirits are angry with someone. These beliefs may
be appropriate for that community. Examples of such people include
the traditional healers in some societies and the charismatic priests
in some evangelical churches. However, these people do not go to health workers for help, since they are using their experiences in a manner that is beneficial to their own health and may help others in distress. It is important not to confuse these experiences with an
illness. An illness should be defined by its adverse effect on the person’s life or that of the family.
