I've asked a lot of people about this, but I get different responses, I don't recall a time in my life that this hasn't happened, and some people have told me it happens a lot. I'll be sleeping soundly and sit up saying "What?" because I heard someone calling my name as if they were in the same room, at times I recognize the voice, my grandmother (deceased), my mom (living) and some I have no idea who they are. I just recall how "clear" their voices are, it doesn't scare me, I just want to know why that happens.
In the case of my Grandmother she always says "Teresa Gail", my ex mother in law says its God's way of letting me know these people need prayer, if so why would my grandmother need it? She's been dead since 1987.
Others have told me they are spirits trying to contact me, or it's a warning, it confuses me and I want to know if its a good or bad thing, or both?, I mean between seeing people who have been deceased, having visions of the deceased, and now realizing I'm talking to the deceased (in some cases) I'm beginning to think I'm a strange sort.
However my youngest son sees people who are deceased as well, particularly when he visits his dads grave, and it isn't his father he sees, just other people, I try to assure him its ok, its a gift he has, is it wrong of me to say that?
