Ever since I was young, as I was drifting off into sleep suddenly in the middle of the night I would suddenly SHOCK myself awake, although I had heard nor seen anything. (This was when I was fully asleep & at the age of about 9+). Then, in the beginning of my teens, I swore to myself I could hear things (the wind? Floorboards?) I mean it's a child's prerogative to immediately assume something spooky, so I convinced myself I was being stupid (there's no such things as ghosts and there's nothing in the wardrobe). So I put on my headphones and listened to music, only to drift off into some limbo between being asleep and awake that I could no longer hear my music (on full blast) coming through the headphones.
Most of the time I was unaware (don't ask me how) but sometimes, although its hard to explain, I was kind of semi-aware that I could no longer hear my music, until suddenly in the state of what I can only describe as some sort of nexus. A loud shout would shock me awake and my music would be thumping through my ears again.
As the years have passed it's gone from being silent, then I would hear muffled words from a distance and now I can hear full sentences and can clearly hear accents and whether it's a female or male, and I don't like it at all. My mum reads tarot and she has told me stories about my grandparents and although I am not at all knowledgeable about anything supernatural, all I know is that I hear things when half asleep. It's progressing and I don't want to know what it could progress to next.
I have no shame in saying that it scares me sometimes. The things I hear that is. Whether this is some sort of supernatural psychic thing or in my mind, I'm either crazy or haunted or something. So for a while now I have been searching the internet for a forum site to share my experiences with and tell my stories to, and ask for advice if I need to. I hope you enjoyed reading the short version story of my land between sleep, and I just hope that I'm not crazy.
