I suffered auditory hallucinations due to medications, they were varied, and quite weird. Sometimes it would be like a small grab of a conversation suddenly loud in my ear and then gone again, sometimes it would be the same few lines of a song, over and over again, sometimes it would be parts of a dream that would come back to me the next day or even later, that I had to think really hard about, cos it seemed to be a memory of a discussion, rather than a dream. I never had instructions or anything, but sometimes it would be hard not to swear I heard something.

I work in the mental health field at the moment and work with a LOT of schizophrenic patients, so am pretty familiar with how they describe their auditory hallucinations. Basically, they will hear an actual voice giving them instructions or talking to them; it's so "external" that they believe someone else is actually speaking to them/calling their name/etc. and they will look around for that person or thing. It's very distracting to them; they will have a conversation with you and get extremely sidetracked because they are experiencing hallucinations at the same time. Much of the time the voices they hear are very unpleasant and even quite violent.
It is very likely that what you are experiencing is entirely normal because it seems to be more "internal." If you are this aware of your thoughts, it could be that you are just focusing more on your thinking behavior instead of letting it just "be," which might make you feel as though what you are experiencing is abnormal.
It is really hard to explain them isn't it? Sometimes it feels like it's coming from outside, but I know it's from the inside. I know that there is no-one there
