At last. Snoke trained you well.
Kylo Ren: I killed Snoke. I'll kill you.

Before defeating Darth Sidious, Rey hears the voices of the Jedi in her head. However at the start of the film, the initial meeting between Kylo Ren and Darth Sidious, has the former Emperor Sidious reveal he is very skilled at imitating voices in people's heads, by saying: "I have been every voice in your head" (using the voices of Darth Vader and Snoke). Thus the voices can also be explained as imitations by Darth Sidious.
Further supporting the Jedi-voices being imitations is the plot-hole of Mace Windu and some of the Jedi-voices Rey hears in her head, having died long before the existence of the ability to become a ghost in the Force. This plot-hole doesn't exist if the voices were to be imitations by Darth Sidious, rather the actual Jedi-ghosts. It is unknown however, why Darth Sidious would want to imitate those voices in Rey's head. Since the movie doesn't even elaborate on the possibility.
However those voices help motivate Rey to kill Darth Sidious, which is exactly what Darth Sidious tells Rey, that he needs. In order to fulfill his plan of merging his soul to her body.
