Real Psychic Experiences

Hearing Voices When I Wake Up


Since I was a child I have had very isolated experiences where upon first waking up I hear a voice telling me something. When I was younger what was being said at times seemed like nonsense, although I do remember being told I would hear a voice again on a certain date and it being true. I also remember a time as a child when I woke up to the sound of some sort of gun fight. When I would open my door the shots became painfully loud and I hid in my bed until I finally fell asleep again. The few times I had the courage to share these incidents with anyone, they usually tossed it off as being the end of a dream or nightmare. I had a difficult time believing this because they were so vivid, and felt so different from when I dreamed.

As I grew older, there was a long while when the voices disappeared, and I actually began to believe that I was just having vivid dreams as a child. That changed more recently when I experienced a rather frightening episode of the voices. I woke up and shot up in my bed, sweating and almost in a panic. I immediately felt wide awake and very aware of my surroundings. A loud male voice that filled my room as if in surround sound said,

"These things are knocking at your door. They are the fountain of all emptiness."

Immediately following his words, I spoke them aloud, unable to stop myself, while he said them along with me.

"These things are knocking at your door. They are the fountain of all emptiness."

That was the last I heard of the voice, but the phrase whirled in my head. I sat up in my bed and put my head between my legs. I couldn't believe what was happening. I felt enormously scared. It didn't feel like thoughts in my head. It was as if the words were being spoken in my brain. I got out of bed and wrote the words down, so I'd be sure to know in the morning if it was a dream or not. It took me hours to finally fall back to sleep. I woke up feeling very tired and I immediately picked up the paper with the phrase written on it.

I haven't figured out what the voice was referring to. Not sure if the words are even about me. While I have come to think the imagery in the phrase is quite beautiful, I can't seem to make sense of it. The obvious connection seems to be that something is being offered to me that shouldn't be trusted, but I can't imagine what, so I don't feel connected to its meaning.

Frankly, I don't really know much about being psychic. I like to think of myself as a pretty down to earth, discerning guy. I've been desperate for an answer. I've looked into everything from sleep paralysis to night terrors, but nothing seems accurate.

Could I be slightly clairaudient? If so, what should I take from those words?

Any thoughts would be comforting and helpful.

Hi all,
My names mike and I'm 21 years old. About 6 months ago I had an experience to say the least. I woke up at around 4am to a voice. It sounded as if it was INSIDE my hear. It was soft but at the same time it felt like it was piercing through my brain. It spoke slightly to fast for me to hear. Almost as if a different language. It sounded not a man or a woman. It confused me but did not scare me. I fell back asleep shortly after te experience to awaken in confusion. I felt crazy. I have never herd anyone inside my head but myself. 2 weeks later a similar event happened. This time it was 3am. I awoke to a voice of much more powerful tone. I sprung up into complete conciosness faster than ever before. I was SCARED. It spoke faster and understood nothing of what was said. It sounded more like a man. Someone that needed very desperately to tell me something, yet I couldn't understand. Don't want to go crazy. I don't think I'm crazy. Help me out.

I believed what you expeienced was clairaudience, meaning you are or were able to hear from those on the other side. However its true meaning I do not know thus can give you no answers on. But I hope the little I was able to provide helped in some way.

Hello, maybe someone can help me with something - I thought I lost my mind until I found this posting lol, - I woke up this morning around 06:05 (approx) trying to see what time it was, (I was up on my left elbow looking at the clock), and then turned my head to the right and heard a very clear and loud whisper "goodbye" in my right ear - not sure if female or male voice (leaning towards a male voice), but I was shocked as no one was in the basement but me and my right side was against a wall. I stayed awake to make sure I wasn't dreaming and no one was downstairs with me, but I wasn't scared at all - just puzzled and still is... Does anyone know what this is or what happened? - Please feel free to email wellsjohnj [at] - thank you in advance for your time and help with this request.

I have had the same experience almost not like yours. This has recently happen well pretty much two years ago. The only time I hear somebody talking to me when waking is when this particular cat is in my room. I will be waking up from a sleep. Example I was waking up from a bad cough and had to keep clearing my throat when I heard a voice like a little girls voice from the end of my bed asking me if " are you alright" I opened my eyes to see where I heard the voice and the cat was looking at me. I swear and I know this sounds crazy that the cat is talking to me that is just one example. Everytime this happens it is in a voice of a young child. No I am not crazy.

preacher 247, I'm sorry, but if this were a dream, then what you have to say, makes perfect sense, but, this is not a dream, it is a message, over time... It has a purpose to fulfill, and is not mearly a message of improvement or insight, but by the sounds of it, a difference between life or death, and I know this is only my opinion, but ultimately in a situation like this, it is up to the person to take the neccessary steps to insure that he understands it and doen't just pass it off as nothing, because it's not.

Also, one more thing, the voices that you heard, that you said didn't make sense, those could be the actual voices that in the future, will be what you subconsciousely make out through the wall, as the people that end up having the gun fight, say, before they have the gunfight...meaning, it makes sense that you don't understand it, because at that moment, it's just voices behind the wall, while you are sleeping... And they will most likely be muffled, but mind you, when you do hear those same muffled voices again, it'll ring a bell, just because it'll be dejavu I guess that's how you spell it... So good luck, and if this is a joke, well then, it was fun translating it anyway, but you sound pretty serious, and if I had those experiences, I would listen to this advice, because, I've translated a few of my dreams, when at first they ment nothing, but when I went back and thought over them, because they stood out to me, they had a message... And sometimes that message can only be understood by the person who drempt it, or had it... Tell me what you think?!

"These things are knocking at your door.

I would imagine that the word "knocking" refers to RIGHT NOW IT'S TAKING PLACE/IT'S HAPPENING, but it hasn't yet happened,...and when it says "door" it actually means your door.

They are the fountain of all emptiness."

What does a fountain do? It brings forth water..."gives life"...ummmm. But since it's 'the fountain of all emptiness', it gives no life... It empties you of all your life... Because a fountain of emptiness is an empty fountain, and a fountain of "all" emptiness, is a fountain that empties itself (and it holds water), so it empties itself of water, (and water can be refered to as 'Life', so its a fountain that takes away, instead of giving, takes away instead of giving...normally, a well gives water "life", but a well that takes away water, takes away life)...
So, "RIGHT NOW, IT'S TAKING PLACE, IT'S GOING TO TAKE YOUR LIFE" this translation sounds creepy.

Theses things are knocking at your door...

What are "these things"...? They are

A fountain of emptiness doesn't offer you life, and that's what's knocking at your door. BUt, it's a fountain of all emptiness...meaning, it never had life.


These things are knocking at your door... The person sending you the message, is saying..."theses things", and these things are; the previouse voices that you have heard while growing up... He is speaking to you as if all the things he ever said to you was all said at once...meaning, think back, and think reall hard about what he (the voice has said), because to you, it may have seemed to have taken place over many years, but to Him, it is one Paragraph.

And you said, when you were younger, you "remember a time as a child when I woke up to the sound of some sort of gun fight. When I would open my door the shots became painfully loud and I hid in my bed until I finally fell asleep again." That's it... Somehow or another, there is going to be a gun fight, and you do not want to open your door, because, if you do, you will reap the reward of "the fountain of all emptiness: Translation: "Death".\

These things are knocking at your door...Translation: Gun shots are the knocking, and you answer to them, by opening the door... Which you do not want to do... Because if you do, the "knocking"...Translation: "Gun Shots", will be, the "Fountain of all Emptiness", meaning "DEATH"...

TRANSLATION: "These things are 'BULLETS' at your door. They are the 'LIFE' of all emptiness (DEATH).

This is what it means, in my opinion... If I were you, the next time I heard a gun-fight in the hall, I would not go to the door to check it out, or you will be dead.

im glad I have joined on here, as I was starting to think I was nutz... Sounds like I am a lightworker, from reading all of the things people have posted, feel spirit, do reiki, I hear rings in my ear, dream of orbs, the list goes on. I have severe gut feelings about just the littlest of things. I don't dabble in saeonces like my younger years. Seems as though I don't need them to contact, they are already really trying. Also that damned number 11, just keeps popping up. ❤

maybe the phrase meant the opportunity's and people that are coming your way will still lead you to not being happy or something or maybe your a really nice person and people try to control you in this way. And you must search for some thing that makes you feel full. Ask your friends and family if you could make seance of this phrase what seance would you make of it? Don't tell them how you heard it because they might try and admit you to a mental home or something lol
