I am hearing voices and seeing visions of people in my home. I am an adult woman and have only begun to experience these things in the last couple years. I do not know anyone who has ever gone through this before, and I do not know how to handle the disruptions in my life.
The voices visions only occur under three conditions; when I am lying down to sleep, when I am in deep thought/concentration, or "they" actually wake me from slumber.
When it began, I was seeing a multitude of faces (unknown to me) with my eyes open or closed. The faces were rarely happy and always seem to reflect fear or anger. I have tried ignore them for the last few years as an overactive imagination. Sometimes, they imprint themselves in my mind, and it is hard to forget what the face looked like.
Then, I started to hear voices and sounds. I would hear bare feet on the tile floor or bits of a sentence. It was never involving me, so I figured that I was tuning in to some kind of television/radio wave.
On two occasions, I woke to see someone standing or sitting next to my bed. I was terrified and woke the whole house with screams before the vision disappeared. I thought that if I could just manage to keep my eyes shut during the night-the problem would not repeat itself.
Last week, things began to forcibly wake me up. I heard one man talking to me-asking me to remember his name. I googled his name the next day-found nothing-and proceeded to forget it. Then, I was awakened several nights ago by a young girl calling my name. She was asking me repeatedly-if I could hear her. I thought it was a family member. I woke up and answered, "yes." The voice began to cry and ask for my help. I was jumping out of bed when I remembered that we were alone that night. I proceeded to search the house and surrounding area for the source of the voice and found nothing. That voice-the voice of a child-absolutely broke my heart. I can't seem to shake it.
Last night, I was awakened, when it felt like someone was trying to pull the covers over my head. Once again, I woke my husband up to make sure that he was not the source of the action. Finally, I just resolved-to go back to sleep.
I am frightened by each of these encounters. The voices and faces are never happy or jovial. The faces and voices are constantly changing. I just want to find someone who understands what is going on and can give some advice.
