Real Psychic Experiences

Hearing Voices At Night


I began hearing voices in the late 1980's only in the quiet, when I was in a room by myself or when I would go to bed. It sounded and still sounds like someone left a TV on and sometimes it sounds like people having a conversation. Early on, I would get up thinking that someone in the family left the TV or radio on. I don't ever sense that the voices are talking to me, I never hear anyone calling my name, just people carrying on a conversation. Lately I can even distinguish a word or two if I really listen intently. In the 1990's I lost the hearing in my right ear due to Meniere's Disease and even through all of this, I still hear the voices. I never mention it to anyone, not even my husband, relatives or my closest friends, because I don't want them to look at me as weird or think that I am losing my mind. I have read with interest other people's post detailing their experiences and some seem so familiar and others are experiences that I haven't had. I hope that if anyone has had similar experiences, they will post them. I am a 55 year old woman who has a happy life and really doesn't mind these voices and conversations, it has been happening so long that I just accept it as normal now.

I get the same time to time.
It's not spirits talking. It's normal people talking.
With me I hear a few seconds then it switches to someone else's conversation. I can make out all their words but can't remember them to repeat 'cos I'm kind of streaming live instead of recording or playing back. I can get really aware of it then I kind of 'snap' out of it.
I can also speak the voices. I just relax, listen to the conversations and kind of catch a wave, just start talking their words with my mouth. When I realise what I'm doing I wig out a little and snap out of it.

The reason I saw this post is because the last two nights the conversations have been really strong. Usually I fall asleep to my air purifier because I'm an insomniac and silence let's my brain wander about too much and over-think, but the last two nights I went to bed without it on, and the voices were very present in my head, I couldn't make them stop - only switch to the next conversation. It drove me a bit nuts - I just wanted to sleep!

I'm not surprised I can do this, I've been psychic since I was very young (only realised when older), but I wish I knew who I was hearing, and why!
It's hard living in an age without gurus and elders. So much knowledge is lost and we walk around with these abilities barely formed and out of our control!

I'd love to hear if someone can find answers to this. Once again, a lot of us who commented are not hearing spirits. They speak a little more in thought and feeling and vaguer words I find, whereas this is like having a radio inserted into your brain. Very crisp words, etc, and not speaking to us.

Thank goodness I came across this post. Your stories are somewhat of a relief to me because I truly felt that I was the only person that this had happened to. I have had psychic abilities throughout my life and have always taken them for granted. Dreaming about lottery numbers, people before they passed on, and knowing of incidents that will take place before the fact are just a few examples of what I have experienced. Last night, it seemed as if I tapped into someone's conversation. I was about to go to sleep and suddenly it was like a phone wire was crossed. I "heard" an entire conversation between 2 women for about 15 minutes. They were not speaking directly to me, and didn't seem aware that I was "tuned in." Because it was about 3AM, I know no one was awake in my neighborhood, let alone within earshot. Some of the posts have spoken about hearing spirit communication, but I am not sure if that is the case here, although it might have been. There was no message related to me, and the information was benign to say the least (no earth-shattering revelations) - as if two friends (I had distinct the impression that they were related, though) were speaking about their day. I was able to stop "hearing" this conversation simply by refocusing my eyes, shaking my head, and becoming aware of my surroundings. Unfortunately, I can not remember what was said and will be more prepared with a paper and pencil the next time this happens. I have a few questions for anyone that happens to read this entry. Is this is an instance of clairaudience? Who could these people be? Why would I be tapped into them? If it is an example of clairaudience, what can I do to strengthen this ability? Thanks so much.

Its beed about two years noe that I have heard the voices of two women talking in the middle of the night, mostly when I walk up at 2:30AM. It sonds like the are in the next room or right out side my house and given where I live there is no one around that late. I can clearly hear them althogh can ont make out what the are saying. It sounds like they are having a good time tho. I wan never frightened by them rather frustrated becasue I want to find where or what it's coming from. I told my wife about of couses she thought I was cazy. She did say she heard it one time when she got up at night to use the restroom. I was thinking of placing a recorder in one of the rooms and see if anything picks up. I know I have strees in my life but I all so know I am not crazy. The peranoral has alway been apart of my families history which has kind of made it normal for me.

I have heard these voices and I know a bit more about them after a near death experance
I felt like one of the voices and was eager for someone to hear me! Someone did.

I was taken by your story. I have many lifelong friends and family always telling me for over 30 years now or longer, that they believe I am psychic or that I have a gift that I don't use. Yada Yada...
Back to your story, lately, in the last 5 yrs, in 2 different houses, I have heard these voices too. I sometimes can make out a couple of the words, but not all time. Its sounds like a big gathering or the TV is on. Its always when I first turn off the light and have barely laid my head to the pillow. I have gotten up to check if anything is on and its not. Its just me and my 13 years old. For many years also, I have seen shadows on the sides of my sites when I'm reading or working on some papers or doing something. My older son (25 years old), knowing the weird/unexplained things that have happened in our home, always says, did we bring our ghost with us again. I have never felt afraid, but lately, I have felt being touched in the night while sleeping. Once being held from behind, like spooning. The other is my hand and forearm being stroked and held and I heard a voice say "your not going to find it". Since this has happened, I am not so much afraid as I am confused as to what that means or how to take it.
All my life, I have had numerous dreams that come true. Actually like warnings. My whole family knows about this. But we don't talk about it and nor do I know what to do with it. I also can read people and know what they are thinking and feeling. So much that my friends tell me all the time that I have "a gift". Their always asking what I think about this person and what do I feel. Because I can get the vibes from just them telling me about this person their asking about... And so far I have always been right, for years They tell me that I should do something with it, search more. I never have, this is the first. I am 47 years old and never considered myself like anyone else. 😕

Just as everyone else who has commented, I think you are clairaudient, which means you can hear spirit voices. This is a part of mediumship.
If you ask politely and concentrate enough, you will be able to hear your spirit guide and guardian angel talking to you. They can tell you advice, like they do to me. I also find it very good that you have accepted your occurences as a common thing, it is the same attitude I had when I started getting my premonitions.
I would suggest to expand your gift and see if you can contact your spirit guide and guardian angel. It is well worth it.
I hope this helps. Good luck and many thanks for sharing your experiences.

You are definetly clairaudient, and not only you can hear them, in fact you have seen them, even though you are not scared, subconsciouly you block what you see. It is up to you to develop it or not. Try to find out who in your family (mother side) had psychic abilities, you would be sorprise. You are not the only one. Good luck.

I believe that you are capable of hearing spirits. If they don't bother you then maybe you shold listen to them. You don't have to but it would be something that I would do. To find some kind of purpose to that particular ability. I am 19 years old and I talk to my angles 24/7 there awsomnd they help to no end. We have abilities for inportant reasons in this wrold we don't just have them. If you would need any kind of help my e-mail is jaklin_valle [at] you can email me at any time and I will get back to as soon as posible.

I have the same experience.

I am 16 and I think the fist time this happened to me was about 3 or 4 years ago, not that long considering your about 50. They happen when I'm alone in my room, usually at night, and it's like the voices come from inside the walls. Sometimes I hear music too, but it's mostly like a conversation or as if the TV is on. I asked my grandmother last year I think what that was, and she told me they were spirits who lived in the house and looked like little dwarves. It sounds crazy, I know, and I thought it was crazy too until I saw one myself, they look just like spirits, only much shorter.

So no you're not crazy, you're just psychic, like me and like a whole bunch of people in this world. 😉

This is most likely the echo of a memory. Everyone can travel to the spirit world when their bodies fall asleep, but only some people can remember conversations that they had with the dead or living while they were there. Unfortunately you are more than likely only hearing the faint echo of a conversation you had in the spirit world, or you had a conversation recorded in your spiritual memory, and it was 'erased' - which happens to almost everyone, when you wake up. It is the most rare ability that one can travel to the spirit world while they are awake, and never forget it either. Though, the veil is more thin for some.

I cannot believe that I have gone through the same thing. It sounds like the TV is on but my boyfriend is sound asleep beside me. And finally that sound of the TV goes away and then I can hear the sound of women talking, just a normal conversation but I cannot make out what they are saying. I am fully awake and just got into bed.

This sounds like clairaudience, which is just the ability to hear spirits. It is... Normal, to us, and it's also a very good gift to have. You are blessed, and God chooses certain people to give gifts to. I you are interested in developing your gift, most people meditate, some just listen more intently, but either will tune you in more to what they are saying. As long as the voices are not threatening you, this is completely safe.
Good Luck ❤

You might be clairaudient (psychic to sounds).

Since the voices are not making contact with you, you might just be picking up on their conversations, or they are unable to connect with you in any other way.

Is it always the same two people?

Is it always the same conversation?

Are you always in the same place when you hear it?

Your body is a filter and while we normally don't hear frequencies outside the usual human range, we can pick them up when we are in an altered state of consciousness. When our brain waves patterns change frequency from beta to alpha or even theta, that frequency band widens, thus allowing us to hear a broader band of incoming noise. I hear, in perfect clarity, radio and sometimes even tv waves when I'm meditating or going into sleep or coming out of sleep. Sometimes it gets highly annoying because I'm trying to meditate and when you can hear DJ's and songs, it really is distracting!

I wrote an article on one of my sister webpages to this one. It's called The filter factor:

Don't worry; your healthy, normal and just so happen to be able to shift your brain pattern such that you can pick these up.

Hope this helps.
