Hearing Voices And Trying To Sleep


I really don't know who I can talk to about this. If I told people about things that happen to me, I'd be declared crazy, for sure. So, here I go. I first started to hear voices at night, when I was three years old. It scared me so bad that I slept with the covers over my head, pretty much every night, from then on. I learned to block it out. I'm 32 years old now. I still hear voices at night. It sounds like a party going on above my head.

I have dreams, where I wake up and say omg... So and so is going to have a baby and is stressed. I'll tell a friend and they say, "No way". Then a few days later, sure enough it's true. I don't mind the dreams and the gut instincts that are very strong and on target, many times. I don't mind the voices. I can ignore them.

Last week, however, I had an experience and I don't understand it. I was sleeping very soundly and I heard a voice and it was asking me, "Are you lonely?" It said, "Hello, are you lonely? I'm lonely too. "Are you lonely? I know what you are". I started coming awake about then and I was struggling to wake and sit up, but I couldn't. The voice said, "Nooo...noooo don't go. Come back." And it said this a few times. I was trying to get up and I could not. I was pinned to the bed and frozen. I tried to yell and I opened my mouth and nothing would come out. I felt like this thing was trying to enter my body.

My eyes were closed but I could see the carpet on my bedroom floor and felt like I was about to fall face first into the floor and It felt like I wasn't in my bed and something was pushing my head down. I finally opened my eyes and it felt like a jolt at the same time. Then no more voices and my neck hurt. I'm not really sure what happened and I'm worried It may happened again. I just don't get it.

I never told anyone about this until recently because usually when you say: "Lately I've been hearing voices..." - people tell you it's time to go get your head checked. But I only hear mine at night - sporadically... And often - I don't even notice it! I'll be fading off to sleep - and then I catch snippets of conversation - really random sentences, like over-hearing someone else's conversation. I recall the other night hearing someone ask: "Did you move it? Well you better move it!" and and a girl saying something like: "I hate my hair... I can't help it, I do!" - just bizarre little things. Not a SINGLE bit scary at all... In fact, it's kind of fascinating. What is strange about it - is that it is SOOO unrelated to me. None of it addresses me or even issues that I have been dealing with - so I have to wonder... Is it just random thoughts in my head, or am I picking up something here?
I can sometimes prompt it too - if I think of it. I'll hear a faint voice - and if I realize "it" is happening, I'll kind of think in my head: "Oh goodie!" and try to go a bit deeper and listen harder - it's almost like... The more I try not to think or listen to it - the clearer it sounds. Does that make any sense? I recently told a friend this and she too experiences it. I decided to google it - and found this site! I see I am NOT alone. Anyone have any tips? I actually kind of LIKE it! I just wish I could develop it more!

Sorry to burst your spirit bubble, but what you experienced is a well known condition called sleep paralysis. You can read all about it here:

i forgot to add that I recently started with a meditation class my first day I was able to do 30 minutes and was told I was at an advanced level for my fist time and being 19 it is very easy for me to get into a deep level could I have opened some kind of door for spirts or anything like that? I did read somthing about using a "protection" before meditating or somthing like that

I've had somthing very similar happen to me on sunday... I was laying in bed trying to sleep I felt this sudden super tired feeling... I fell asleep a couple times but was awaken by some noises in my room... I thought nothing of it and turned on my radio. I guess I fell into a deep sleep and I started to dream? But my eyes were still slightly open I could see my room my door and mirror and I could recognize the song that was playing however I couldn't move. My eyes felt extremely heavy so I could barely open them I felt as if I was on a heavy drug or super drunk and had a fever at the same time I felt the room spinning and I think I was hearing shuffling going on but at the same time I knew nothing was moving. Then I "dreamt" or heard a voice saying things in a diffrent language and then asking me "how do you feel" or "do you like it" when the language began I felt almost like a soothing pleasure I felt like whatever this was it was trying to get into me I did feel it was a female presence when it was asking but when the language began I couldn't tell sex I tried to move but I felt pinned down not a heavy pressure just pinned. FInally I found myself kind of fighting this thing not letting myself go... I tried to say something to it but it wouldn't let me speak finally I got to say what I wanted to or thought it stongly enough that it made like a weird noise like a grunt or moan type of noise I don't know if I was dreaming the sound but it seemed very real and I did feel a very cold breeze on my right arm I wanted to pull my arm away but couldn't and when I did wake I was shaking and my arm was hurting as if I had been out in the cold and my bone was sore or somthing... Was somthing trying to get inside my body?

Wow the same thing happened to me just the other night. When it was over I asked my spirit guides what had happened. They told me that it was a lesser spirit (probably a little kid) trying to use my body as a sanctuary. I believe that this is the same thing that happened to you.

People that have multiple personalities are normally partially controlled by a lesser spirit.

Try and ask the spirit what it wants.

Hope I was helpful!

I used to have some similar experiences as a kid. Not quite as vivid or accurate as yours because it was just voices not any kind of foretelling.

I did just recently have an odd "voice" experience. I heard my own voice calling me. It sounded distinct but far off at the same time and I just wonder what it all means. I was waking up when it happened and it was after I woke up I realized it was "My" voice I had heard.

I hope you figure out what your experience is.

You seem to me to be a dreamer, empathic, claurident and medium. Search these if you wish, or just ask questions to me. [I have other accounts, this isn't mine... Its my sisters']

Hi my name is Dee, I was searching through the net to find out if anyone was experiencing anything like I was and found this site. I was amazed. I'd love to hear from anyone that has the same. I can see auras, I pick up emotions or know what's going on, hear voices, laterly since moving over to north carolina before I even go to sleep I hear music - sometimes it plays the same song over and over again other times it's like a radio station, but it's so soft I can't work out the words, when I close my eyes I see faces or places I have never seen before, the faces bombard me so much I find my self not going to sleep for at least 2-3 hours. Some of friends ask me for advice and I pick up these things that werent even shared. I have tried to seek help by pyshic teachers but they charge so much that I can't afford it. I have also experience what one person mentioned in here astral catalepsy, 4 times in my life over a period of 2 weeks. I feel this was wrong, because I could hear like a shuffling noice along the wooded floor before I was even pinned down and couldn't move and it was like it was trying to hurt me. When I looked into it further, I found out the person I met at a club before this started worked in a funneral home and feel this spirt had attac hed to me. I have had out of travelling experiences and this was totally different.
If anyone would like to contact me to share stories or what they have done to help their abilities I'd love to hear from you.

you know, it makes me laugh to think that when someone is dreaming of you-is there some way that this can interfere with YOUR dreams... I know this might sound crazy, but sometimes our bodies know more than our conscious minds and maybe a friend might be pregnant and not know it but during their dreams it's such a big deal-maybe you can hear others dreams... Like dream interference...? Yeah sounds crazy

Edmund - by your long silence, I realize you are like the husband and saying, "Be careful." He either says it or rolls his eyes and hopes I don't say anything with a problem/question from people - usually after I've done it. He's protective and just wants me to not get in trouble. Sensitive stuff is still not greatly appreciated perhaps because so many try to be and aren't so when it is right, people freak. I'd love to sing great, have always loved pitch, play the piano, and can't sing. Everyone tries to sing though. Bummer.

Edmund - I've never believed in danger in "that" way or being careful. I wasn't even sure it was real honestly. In time, things make sense. Many of your ideas don't match mine, such as witches. Having the name Glenda that perhaps is a little ironic but my mom chose that name (she made it up she claimed allllll of her life) when she was small for all her dolls because her mom's name was Glendola. Then, later, out came the "Wizard of Oz." Anyway, you are the voice or reason and caution that my husband would tell me if he understood anything about this - he does understand production and engineering. He rolls his eyes, grins and bears it, and tells me to be "careful" in a general way. Sometimes he thinks it's funny. Those are the best times, especially if someone is being mean and I've done all I can.

About YVE72's comment, I've often felt like I was being held down when I was sleeping, so now I know why that's happening (thank god, it's scary!)

GlendaSC... I know people like to charge into things head first so to speak and that is probably good with most things in life. But when you have psychic gifts baby steps are probably better. There are vast dimensions out there to be explored but there are few road maps and many entities just waiting to take advantage of the situation. So really the best advice anyone can give is to educate yourself the best that you can, talk to like minded people and go at a reasonable pace. 😁

Well, I'm convinced that a spirt was trying to contact me or move into my body. I have not had another experience not being able to move. However, I have had thoughts and words that are not my own. Words, that would not say to myself, would pop into my head; with a British accent. The thoughts are actually more positive than I myself would say to myself. However, as friendly as it seems, I told this thing to go; Its not going to happen. The British words are gone. Fingers crossed... I won't have to deal with this anymore. I have been meditating and working on my chakras... Maybe I got careless... And opened up too much to didn't protect, as well. I didn't realized with out doing a protection, things really can happen. Eeekkkk.

Edmund - I've always wondered why I like your advice over others. You are careful. This is dangerous stuff I think. I've had to put on "the brakes" a few times my past five decades. Being pretty sure of myself in general, this is against my nature in general, but tiny steps are safer. I'm not a careful natured person. I don't mind walking around "dangerous" places though I live in a gated community and have been fussed at. I walk where I want. I've had home intruders a few times and ran them off. I was attacked once, and felt bad for hurting one person. (broken ankle, not a gun) But, in this area, I advise people, take little steps and ignore it a lot if it becomes too much or too strong. Be patient. Use your will. Being grateful and praying are helpful, at least for me.

I had an experience similar to that... A friend of mine was almost possessed.

Actually, he was possessed. But he was not outside of his body, looking in. His spirit or soul had been taken under control by this spirit (for I refuse to call him a demon).

He detailed his experiences to me with the three spirits dwelling in his room. One who would judge him, checking him out to make sure he was 'okay.' He sat on his bed.

Another one was on the ceiling, and would converse with the judging one, telling him when my friend was there.

The third was in the closet, and could only leave when it was left open. The leader of the three, the corrupted 'friend,' or the leader...

I can understand what your experience was like. To try to help him stay calm (he was shaking violently, but only on his right side) I placed him hands on him. The moment that I did, something odd happened. I may have almost saved him and taken the spirit inside myself. But I won't get cocky or make assumptions. I only know so much about the occurence...

He your not crazy, I get some of that too. I ve had many experiences since I was nine. I'm 28 now. My area in illinois is also very active.

Bella... I guess my spin on this would be pretty much as you see it... The spirit knows that you are psychic and wanted to be with you, use you, or take you over. Usually some other subtle things should be happening also. Always remember that you have the power to put the "Brakes" to this... It dosen't have to go out of control!

Ahhh, okay. I'm going to read up on Astral catalepsy. Sounds interesting. I think I may be progressing, into other things. I just wanted to make sure, it wasn't a possession or something bad.

Thanks! 😁

I used to hear the voices every single night. Loud and clear. For what it is worth I totally thought I was going crazy until I met my wife and she taught me to turn it off.
Now I come to this site and there are so many other people having the same thing happen!
Tell them to get out. Tell them to leave. Get angry and even sleep with the radio on. Just try to remember every night before you sleep that you are in control.

Hi Bella...It's called astral catalepsy. Sometimes when we sleep, a part of us (almost like a copy of us) can lift up out of our physical body and go elsewhere. Some call them Out Of Body Experiences.

While its easy to leave, the re-entry does not always go smoothly. Your physical body can feel your copy/spirit trying to get back in and sometimes your physical eyes can see this happening. Your spirit eyes saw everything from above.

You can't move, you can't talk, sometimes you feel like you're being held down, choked, or molested. People sometimes think a demon is trying to possess them, but its not. Its just you returning.

I think this has happened to everyone at least once. Ask God (or whomever) to give you an easy exit and re-entry.

Also while we are "out" traveling you can run into others who are having OBE's as well as spirits. I think that's what the "shadow people" phenomenon is. Remember bad people can have OBE's too and while in astral state they don't have to follow rules. 😲
