Real Psychic Experiences

The Voices


I've been hearing voices before I fall asleep. I'm not sure who they are, but they vary. Sometimes they are just low hums that actually help me fall asleep, but then they jerk me out of sleep so suddenly that they work like an involuntary alarm clock. Sometimes, I try to listen to them to hear what they are saying, and it rarely works. It's always many people talking at once, some with deep voices, and some are women. I don't remember hearing them as a kid, and they seem more frequent lately, but I think that's only because I've been listening.

At first, some of them are the low hums, but then some are clear & loud, but fade back to a hum. I'm not scared, but sometimes I want to know who these people are.

I'm a teen, so I'm curious as to if the voices will get stronger as I grow up, or will they fade away. Will they become unbearable, or will they just get clearer?

I've tried manipulating the voices to see if they are all in my head. It doesn't work.

My friends are very open-minded about these sorts of things, it. I can't go into the story very far without my friend telling me the same story of how she saw her dead cat's ghost. I believe her, but I'm just tired of hearing it.

What do you think?

P.S.: Tonight I heard a scream. An angry one.

i have recentley started to hear voices/sounds. Meaning sighs. I hear sighs more then anything else. I'm not sure what it means. But I also hear someone whispering my name. It freaked me out the first few times. One of my friends heard it too. But she has powers too and is a medium so I'm not sure if I'm becoming one too.

Any thaughts?
Thanks. ❤

I am happy you are being awakened and receiving help for that.

I went though of period of that and was glad when it stopped. While sleeping my heart would suddenly stop and I could not breathe so I would wake up and gasp for breath. This kept happening until I prayed and then it went away and never returned.

It is common for psychics to have ailments due to lack of sleep, stress, loss of energy, or as psychic attack. The most common ailments seem to be colds, and lung and heart problems.

Hope your sleep has improved. 😊

We tend to often enter a hypnogogic state between full wakefulness and sleep, but retain little memory of this time afterwards--unless, that is, we are suddenly disturbed in such a way that allows us to retain our awareness of this state long enough to be impressed by it (sometimes even alarmed if it seems weird enough by ordinary standards) and commit it to memory. Many psychics and spiritualists, as well as paranormal researchers, believe that our spirit or soul may travel in another level of experience at this time (some call the most basic of these levels the astral, and in numerous traditions this "plane" of reality is further broken down into subdivisions). Sometimes physical pathology can lead to the perception of these things as well; in some cases, a person who is physically or mentally ill may hear purely imaginary voices. But some illnesses and disabilities can also bring about metaphysical experiences which seem genuine when all known facts are analyzed.
Your experience of hearing voices while neither fully asleep nor awake is not at all unusual. It could be you are hearing real things not normally accessible to your awareness, or it could be an illusion based on something like need for sleep and muscular tension combined with the perception of environmental noises below the level of consciousness. Time and patience will tell.
From my own experience: I have obstructive sleep apnea and asthma. Because of this I occasionally find myself awakening at night and unable to breathe, especially because of pain which causes me to shift posture in my sleep. At these times, I am awakened by someone calling my first name, sharply but in a soft voice (usually with the kind of accent one hears in Memphis and central Arkansas, where most of my older relatives were born--my grandparents and most of my aunts and uncles have crossed over). I also at these times find I am in a total struggle for breath and am probably on the verge of a major unplanned life change. Whoever is waking me up--thank God for them. Maybe it's my grandparents, maybe it's Elvis and Johnny and June, but whoever it is has my gratitude; I doubt my subconscious is sufficiently athletic to engineer these events so convincingly by itself. If I didn't believe in help from the Afterworld before these experiences, I do now (this has happened between 40 and 50 times, though not in a few months that I can recall). 😆

Oracle101 - that would be really interesting to hear about you and I read your list of abilities as well, also very interesting. Hope to talk to you again sometime. Until then take care!

Dear IndigoCat,

Ironic you should mention that. Every psychic I met within the last year kept telling me I would soon be teaching other psychics. I told them they were crazy (jokingly of course) because as I explained to them, I have stage fright, and also I did not know I knew enough to actually teach other psychics! But after hearing this from so many psychics I finally decided to follow the signs in case this was in fact my destiny. So I decided to try it online first, and here I am. I really hope I can help you all. This truly is an honour and I hope to never let you down.

I did submit a story but it was more of a question because there was no other option on how to submit a new question.

However, if you wish I will submit a new story as an intro and list on my abilities.

To Oracle: If you have the time... Have you thought about posting a story? I have read your postings and you seem to be a very excellent teacher. I think you could help a lot of people on here. (Me Included!) I would love to read advice/stories/ideas from you! I have been worried about negative energies and wondering if my method of prayer was "enough." Thank you for what you posted about that. Warm regards to you!

It is very important to confirm that they are good entities which you are meant to help and not bad entities trying to attack or manipulate you. They can see you and hear your spoken word but not usually hear your thoughts so the first thing to do is to pray for your guides to protect you and advise you on what to do. As for the entities/spirits you must speak outloud to them to ensure that they hear you and tell them that you only welcome good spirits and ask all negative or bad energies/entities/spirits to leave. This is also important to do when using lettered cards, tarot cards, scrabble, etc to communicate with your top level guides for advice and guidance. Always confirm you are speaking to them and not to entities/spirits until you are ready to do so. Let me know if you have anymore questions on this. I deal with this on a daily basis since birth.

First off you are not a schizo and if you are then the rest of us are too! I have being hearing voices for many many years and at first it really freaked me out. I try now to listen but it seems like when they get going they break my concentration.
Sometimes though I can keep concentration for a longer time and hear a whole sentence. Which I promptly write down!

Hi Sleepy. I too have had things similar to this happen...

This week, I woke up to someone screaming "call 911." It was not like they were telling me to call, but more like I was observing/hearing someone yell this? Talk about being jolted from sleep and getting freaked out. I just got up and said nothing and went about my routine. When I walked into the kitchen, my husband pointed toward the front window and said look at that. I looked out the window and across the street there was an ambulance with lights going and they were loading a person into an ambulance. Wierd huh?

Also when I was just waking up a couple times I have heard someone call my name. I often wondered if when I heard my name, it was my spirit guide calling to me?

Also have heard loud crashing or lightening clap noises right before I go to sleep. I tend to think it might have something to do with visiting the other side during sleep, but I could be wrong.

I am wondering also if you are hearing your guide speak to you at times as well? Maybe that is a possibility? Maybe one of the more experienced people would comment on that?

Hope all goes well for you though! ❤

Thanks to the advice. I really hope I'm not a schizo, but I am very paranoid at times. I think that's just being a teenager though. I'll have to look up the clairvoyant thng. I'm pretty sure it's not replaying things, but you never know. I do tend to be a little tired sometimes, hence the name MiissSleepy.

So, thanks for helping me sleep a little easier. 😁

Yeah, I agree with KaraJean, I have a close relative who sometimes experiences the same. It can be a result of being overly fatigued. She says she sometimes hears the voices of relatives, and that the voices aren't clear. Mostly what you've said.

As long as the voices aren't telling you to DO anything, you're fine. If they do, then we might be looking at schizophrenia.

If you do not know what this is, you can read about it here.

Hi MissSleepy,

I am a natural born Empath. Empath (meaning ability to apprehend the mental or emotional state of another individual).

Even before I knew I was an Empath strange things like hearing voices before I went to sleep would occur. I mean right before I dozed off.
Thats part of being Clairvoyant my dear.

I'm not sure what type of Clairvoyant ability you have. But what you mentioned use to happen to me. And sometimes it still does once in a while.
I would hear conversations like lots of people talking right before I went to sleep. Sometimes I would get a whisper or a yell "Get up!" in my ear and I would immediately wake up!.
To answer your question... Its spirits talking to you. Or you are able to hear into the spiritual world.
Do a lot of meditating. That would help you see and hear things a little clearer. 😁

ok I heard about this before cause I usually experience the same. But in fact many people experience this at times. There's a time when your body is about to fall asleep that the subconscious hears noises kind of like the noises you can hear in your dream. They are always loud and sometimes you might hear a name or a voice saying just one word like I heard "CANT!" one time and just loud popping and stuff. It may be your body just adjusting to sleep. Are these noises you might have heard while you where awake that day? Pay attention to what your ears hear while you're at work or wherever it might be your subconscious replaying those sounds? Just a thought... Ill have to look up the actual name for it... Sorry I was unprepared friend
