Hearing Spirit Voices When Falling Asleep

There is a magical time between awake and sleep where it’s possible to hear voices of spirits out loud. If you have been in that drowsy almost asleep state and heard a voice when no one is there, it’s likely that you are tapping into the vibrational level of spirit.

This has happened to me a few times. It always intrigues me when it does. The last time it happened, I heard whispering. The time before that, I heard a woman say a man’s name – “Lawrence”. So what does it mean, and what should you do if you are hearing spirit voices?

I noticed that it started to happen more frequently after I began practicing an alchemical breathing technique before I fell asleep. If you would like to tap into this phenomena, I suggest you try it and see what happens.

I read about this technique in Catherine MacCoun’s book, On Becoming an Alchemist: A Guide for the Modern Magician. It’s a book that will help you rethink the way you relate to the world.

Each chapter comes with exercises and interesting discussions. The breathing technique surprised me in its simplicity. However, it proved to be effective. Here’s how it goes.

Relax so that your out breath and in breath are relatively the same length.

Breathe in and don’t focus on anything in particular.

Breathe out focusing on your exhalation.


I breathe in and out from my nose.

As I was falling asleep, I didn’t notice who had said the name. She didn’t feel like family, and I don’t have a Lawrence in my lineage. My feeling is that this is a guide.

She could have also have been a drop-in – someone who was attracted to the light I was creating through this exercise and my intention of wanting to connect to Divine Energy.

When I was reading Catherine MacCoun’s book, I did several of the exercises for a few weeks. I also tried to reorganize my thinking about time, cause and effect. As this went on, I noticed that there was a lot of energy built up around my bed.

It was during this time that I was experiencing more and more physical psychic phenomena in addition to spirit voices. Feeling as if I was floating. Hearing spirit audibly. Seeing through my eyelids.

For me, I love this stuff. I work at something all the time to keep myself growing and learning.

All was good until we had overnight guests and we gave up our bed to a visiting Medium. After he was gone, I noticed the energy that I had built up was gone too! The lovely energy that made it easy to connect to spirit dimensions!

I found out that my friend had noticed the energy and had actually seen swirls of it all over my bed. He cleared it because he didn’t want to sleep in it. Grrrr…

If you try this breathing technique, please let me know how it works for you. You may be hearing spirit voices as you fall asleep or you may psychically perceive other things. I highly recommend Catherine MacCoun’s book. We all could use a little more alchemy in our lives!

I hope you enjoyed this article! If so, please share:

    Hi Selina, a few months ago, I had a similar experience. I woke up frozen, and then all of a sudden, I heard whispers and spiritual background. I was so surprised and scared, then I heard a dominant male voice saying hi and asking me how I am. I panicked and then it was gone…. I was frozen and I fell back asleep… 🙂 I sorta wish I had a conversation but I can’t help being scared 🙁

  • admin July 5, 2012, 1:16 am

    Hi Julie,

    It’s okay, I work with spirit all the time and I still get spooked now and then! I think it’s because I’m not expecting to hear out loud in that dreamy state because I’d love to hear more! It just startles me.

    That and all the horror movies I watched as a kid! LOL!


  • Barbara September 30, 2012, 1:08 pm

    My mother was in the state between sleep and awake for her nap earlier today (as she is suffering from pneumonia) and she heard a female voice say “It’s Time” It startled her so much that she was afraid to go to sleep. Could this mean she is going to die and a spirit or angel was warning her??

  • admin October 3, 2012, 1:45 am

    Usually an Angel or Spirit will not warn someone of a death. It does no good for us to know of our impending death and as they come to us in love and light, they would not likely convey such a message. The only time I know where Angels or Spirits come to those who are close to death is when the person is very ill and suffering and the message is a comfort. Even then, it is not common to receive such a message.

    The message”it’s time” could apply to any number of things in life. Maybe it’s time to heal. I would not make any assumptions about the meaning.

    I wish your mother rest and healing.

  • Linda Williams May 12, 2013, 10:41 pm

    Hi Selina: I find that I am quite clairaudient, and I frequently hear people calling my name, or I pick up snatches of conversation that make no sense to me. However, the strangest one I tuned into was this harsh male voice in the timbre of an English peasant
    of say, the middle ages, that spoke the phrase ‘Get you gone!’ How would you explain something like that? Do we ever receive snippets of conversation from our own past lives? I believe that our cells hold the residual energy of past lives.
    Thank you.

  • admin May 13, 2013, 1:39 am

    Yes I do believe that we can pick up phrases and words from different dimensions and times. But it is also possible that there was a spirit speaking to you or that you happened to “eavesdrop” into the vibration of that particular spirit’s thoughts or conversation.

    On another note, as we live in a holographic universe, every molecule – including our cells – has the entire history of everything in it. Edgar Cayce said that the akashic records are everywhere. So your thought that our cells hold residual energies of past lives would make sense under that premise.

  • Cg June 18, 2013, 2:30 am

    I am precognitive for years.Clairaudience only happened to me recently.about 2 months ago I was in work and I was stopped on my tracks by what sounded in my ears like a radio being tuned in properly to get a clearer frequency or sound. Muzzy at first then a voice of a couple emerged, a man & a woman who sounded as if they were debating or conversing in a strong manner. It only happened a few seconds then it was gone. Another incident 2 was ago, just before awaking from a dream in a like half asleep half awake mode, I heared children’s voices calling out the name Kyle or kylie in a hurried,worried tone as if this person is in danger.again few seconds then I was awake completely.

  • Yolanda M July 16, 2013, 8:44 pm

    Hi. I also hav ths thng of hearing these voices ryt b4 i doze of. Bt 2day sumthng weirder happened. Jst b4 i dozed off (my eyes wer stl wide open bt i ws half aslp), one of the spirits hit my hand. I imediately ‘woke up’ n was irritated. I felt like saying they had gone too far. Is the touchng part also normal?

  • admin July 16, 2013, 9:15 pm

    Hi Yolanda, Yes sometimes spirits do touch us. If it bothers you, tell them to stop and ask you guides to intervene on your behalf so they don’t touch you. Selina

  • Yolanda M July 21, 2013, 3:43 am

    Thanks Selina.

  • Awura August 9, 2013, 12:39 am

    Hi a couple of months ago I was really depressed over a bad breakup and I tried committing suicide but God saved me I had also lost my job and everything I was in my room crying and telling God why he lets people take advantage of me I wasn’t asleep or nothing then I heard a female voice say my name and she said to me that it will be ok then it dissaperared I have no idea who it was can you please help me with this one.

  • admin August 9, 2013, 7:25 am

    I see a beautiful being of light, a young woman. Not a family member, but perhaps a guide or an angelic being.

    You are blessed and I am glad that everything is now okay.

  • Youngkinglover December 7, 2013, 8:51 pm

    In my state of dozing off i heard a wisper of two voices one female and a male.my mind was inmediately awake and consient but i couldnt move my body , i was laying on my belly. She exclaimed in a whisper: ay! No! Who is this ( i felt like she was teying to enter my body and in the background she was been pulled back or called by the man voice but i couldnt understand him. I didnt feel scared but trhough my eyelids i saw what resembeled a mayan calendar in black and white or some other similar symbols. Then i said God is my savior! (Because i kind of felt they were gonna take me) and right there and then i took a huge cool inhale air and woke up. Im not scared just very intrigued. Because i do beleive and have seen spirits in the past at the same time my boyfriend saw them so yea no doubt about it. What do u think the demale

  • monica January 7, 2014, 4:01 pm

    It doesn’t happen all the time. when I’m half asleep I hear breathing and a voice speaking in my ear. It dosent make sense. My children wake up scared they hear the same thing. what does it mean? I like to know more?

  • admin January 7, 2014, 11:55 pm

    Hi Monica, Sometimes we tap into other realms when are in a receptive state of half asleep. It might be a particular spirit trying to get your attention or it could be like tuning into a radio show while turning the dial and catching a snippet of conversation that doesn’t make sense to you. If all this bothers you, try asking your Spirit Guides, Family in Spirit and/or Archangel Michael to bless the family and house and to let you all sleep restfully and undisturbed. You can do this every night and teach your kids to do it too. However, there is really nothing to be scared of. This happens to many people all over the world.


  • Augusto January 12, 2014, 10:06 am

    I definitely got something from my mom. From an early age I’d hear things that nobody else did.(and so could she) My mom however, because of religious beliefs, did not want me to entertain this “gift”.
    Now, in my forties, its manifested all over again. Especially if I”m away on business and staying in old hotel rooms. I used to ignore it, but now I feel I’m ready to nurture it further. Thankfully there’s been nothing sinister or threatening so far.

  • lakeshia January 22, 2014, 12:30 am

    hi im lakeshia. ive been hearing sounds, and conversations right before sleeping as well. i also have “sleep paralysis”. it really frightens me! ive also have been seeing 11 11 often and am feeling like this guy jeremy is my soulmate! i feel connected to him and feel like we are both telepathic with one another. are you feeling that he is my true love as well and im going thru a spiritual awakening??

  • Meg April 8, 2014, 1:42 am

    I had a experience Saturday night. I heard a woman in her 30 or 40s say hello and it was loud and as if it was right in my ear! I freaked out as I just got comfy in bed and ready to fall asleep. I’m the only female in the home and everyone was sound asleep it was late about 5am as I couldn’t sleep. I got up and stayed awake the rest of the morning and felt uneasy and felt as I was being watched. Pretty sure this was a random visit from spirit and would like to talk but get way to scared of the unknown aspect of it all.

  • Colleen May 23, 2014, 10:09 pm

    I had a similar experience as well just yesterday morning. I sleep during the day because my boyfriend works nights and I like to spend time with him before bed. It was about 10 am when I finally crawled into bed. I always lay awake for about 10 to 15 mins before I’m able to get comfortable and fall asleep. My eyes were partially open when a male figure suddenly shown up in front of our closet on my side of the bed. He was leaning over, his face just inches from mine. I vaguely can tell that he had on blue and red shirt. He was blurry, and I couldn’t tell any facial features. Just as he appeared, he shouted, “Talk to me!” It startled me enough to open my eyes wider and look around. No one was there, except for my boyfriend who was fast asleep. I honestly thought I was dreaming but yet I wasn’t asleep.

  • admin May 24, 2014, 12:01 am

    Hi Colleen,

    Sounds like that spirit was really trying to get your attention by shouting! If he shows up again, you can ask him what he wants and who he is. If you are okay with that 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your experience!


  • Kay June 14, 2014, 12:22 am

    I have had this my whole life, but a few nights ago i heard an entire name really clearly :-/

  • admin June 20, 2014, 4:40 am

    Hi Kay,

    Very cool! It would be interesting to google it or see if there is a link for that name to your family or the place where you live. Just an idea!

    Take care,

  • Nadia June 21, 2014, 2:15 am

    For the past two and a half months I have been having angel visitations. I hear audible voices praying for me and telling me to trust in God. They put images of themselves in my head and once appeared to me as gold and white sparkling light around my eyes. Just two nights ago I was falling asleep and began hearing a conversation that I think I was a apart of. I can not remember what the conversation was about but I do know that the people (two of them I think) who were talking to me were making clear sense of things in my life for me (idk what things) but I know this because I kept saying “that makes so much sense” “I get it now” etc. I then began saying a prayer I have never learned before in my life. Any insight? Thanks!

  • admin July 11, 2014, 2:33 am

    Hi Nadia,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Yes, you were being given guidance and it is not uncommon for us to forget what transpired once we wake up. When you are in the in-between awake and asleep state, it’s easier for spirit to speak to you. Although your brain is aware and may answer, it’s really being understood on a deeper soul level. So don’t worry if you can’t remember what they said. The messages have been received and your spirit knows.

    Take care,

  • freya July 19, 2014, 6:36 am

    Ive been googling this subject today after the experience I had last night. I was just settling down to sleep and I heard a male voice call my name as if he knew me. I honestly freaked me out! So I got up put my lamp and tv on and tried to settle down again. This time I heard someone humming a tune but not anything I recognised. I kept saying in my head ” please let me sleep “. Hoping this voice would hear my thoughts?! Eventually I did get some sleep but it really unsettled me. Has something been switched on in me to allow me to “hear” – is this something that i should look further into?

  • cindy July 22, 2014, 3:55 am

    Hi, I was between sleeping but not quite dreaming yet, when I heard a male voice in my ear. You’re cruel. I was also at work awake and hearing voices I was also able to hear two male voices talking to each other. What am I???

  • Shavon July 24, 2014, 9:22 pm

    I can tell when I’m in the lucid state and often times when this happens I call out the name of this guy I really like and suddenly his face appears clear as day and he’s smiling and I try to conversate with him. Well this morning I was lucid dreaming, called out his name, he appeared for about 2 seconds, and then a female voice called out the name “Catherine”. This female voice was clear and had a soft tone. Could this be an angel? Spirit guide? I’ve also been seeing repetitive numbers on clocks and in my dreams…

  • sk42na July 24, 2014, 11:49 pm

    Hi Shavon,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences! Catherine feels like a spirit guide. Sounds like you are opening up spiritually! Repetitive numbers are both a sign and an activation. When I see those numbers it’s a sign for me that I’m in the flow.

    Take care!

  • sk42na July 24, 2014, 11:57 pm

    Hi Cindy,

    Sounds like you are having clairaudient experiences in that in-between sleep and awake state. I believe that it’s easier to tap into other dimensions when our brain waves are in this state. You are clairaudient which means “clear hearing”. It’s your psychic hearing ability. Some people would also classify that a mediumship ability as you are hearing spirits/entities/beings outside of you.

    In these states of sleep-wake, I think it’s possible to receive communication from other beings (family in spirit, spirit guides, other types of beings like non-human species including Angels, etc) but it’s also possible just to get a blip of another conversation kind of like eavesdropping.


  • sk42na July 25, 2014, 12:46 am

    Hi Freya,

    This may just be an isolated incident. Typically, if you are hearing on the spiritual plane it’s not going to happen every night. It tends to happen once in a while. You tried the right thing in saying to let you sleep. It may help you to try the following:

    See yourself, your loved ones and your place surrounded in beautiful white light. Ask your spirit guides and Archangel Michael to keep you in loving energy and protection so you can sleep well. Then thank them and rest easy!

    Hope this helps!

  • robyn hall July 30, 2014, 8:05 pm

    A friend told me she was awoken by a male voice saying I love you. A few weeks later she was awoken by a female voice singing a gentle smoothing song in the english. Each time she has woken frightened but unable to move.Can you put some light on this

  • Selina July 31, 2014, 1:12 am

    Hi Robyn,

    Thanks for your comment. As she was unable to move, it may be that she was in the beginning stages of astral travel but had not yet left her body, or, she had been astral traveling and come back to her body but not fully integrated yet and thus could not move. She was likely hearing the voice of family in spirit or spirit guides. They feel loving and not threatening.


  • robyn hall July 31, 2014, 4:11 pm

    Thankyou Selena…this has helped

  • Mudit Singh August 10, 2014, 5:07 am

    Hi, I have a similar feeling a couple of times now. First time it happened, for the first few minutes I thought those were my friends talking until I realised that it was 4 in the morning and everyone in the hostel were asleep. Maybe that was when I had woken up(or so I thought. I don’t know. I still like to think it was a bad dream.) and at that moment I was completely frozen. In sheer terror I just listened to those voices as I was shit scared to look up. I quickly glanced a look at my roommate who was asleep and I tried to call his name but I don’t know why but I just couldn’t manage to speak. I tried all I could but I could manage only a brief whisper which was not enough to wake him up. Finally I quit all efforts and just waited for the night to pass.
    I don’t know what’s the reason but this is the first time I am away from home and add to that the tremendous pressure of MBA. I made myself believe that was just a nightmare which happened because of all this pressure. I would like to know more on this. It would be a great help. Thanks.

  • Nancy August 20, 2014, 6:54 am

    I have experiences of voices waking me up, as if i was being talked to. I wake up and nobody is awake. Happened 3 times last night. At first it was 2 gentlemen talking about me. 1x my name was called and other was my daughters voice saying MOM. I looked around scared. What could this be.

  • Selina August 20, 2014, 11:17 pm

    Hi Nancy,

    This happened to one of my girlfriends. She was sleeping and kept hearing her daughter calling her, but when she checked her daughter was sound asleep. Ended up there was a spirit in her house and I cleared it for her. It was just being a bit mischievous. After the clearing, it stopped happening. I feel that for you, it’s just a spirit trying to get your attention. Same thing with the two men. I don’t feel there is anything to worry about. In fact, the one gentleman feels like he is around you every so often like a spirit who works with you.

    If you are scared and you don’t want this to happen, then ask your guides to keep spirits from disturbing your sleep. If you are curious and you want to learn more, then ask your guides to help get whatever message these spirit have for you – if any – or if they are just letting you know they are there, then to make it clear who they are.

    Hope this helps!

    All the best,

  • LilZebra August 21, 2014, 11:34 am

    Since 2009 I have been meditating alot and speak with my great-grandmother who is my main spirit guide now. I have also spoke with my two future sons, whom I am getting to know their likes and dislikes before they are born.

    All of them I can hear pray with me at the end of the day, also gives me good advice.

    My great grandmother has been encouraging me to get a job again — I’ve been unemployed since 2011.

    My two boys want to help me so that they can enter this world. In 2011 when I entered trance state in a darkened room, I could see them sitting on the floor waving to me and tousling their hair. The eldest (future) son sat atop my bookshelf pointing down at me sitting on my mattress.

  • lauren September 1, 2014, 7:26 pm

    When I was younger ive had someone call my name just before I was falling asleep. And I remember always hearing whispers and going to my dad crying. Ive had other paranormal experiences. But one that I had recently really freaked me out. I was lying in my bed when I heard a loud very clear whisper saying “scare her” nothing happend after that but I was pretty spooked.

  • Selina September 1, 2014, 9:55 pm

    Hi Lauren,

    It’s not uncommon to hear your name when there is a spirit trying to communicate with you or letting you know that they are around. It doesn’t happen for every spirit, but many people tell me that their name is one of the first audible clairaudient (outside psychic hearing) things they experience.

    When I have experiences like the one you describe as your most recent one, I usually ask my spirit guides to help me out by taking that spirit to where it needs to go to be happy and fulfill it’s purpose without hurting anyone unless the experience is for my highest good. But that’s what I’m comfortable with.

    You can also ask your spirit guides and angels to only let love and light through while you sleep. Do this before you go to bed.

    All the best!

  • Justin September 16, 2014, 12:29 pm

    Recently in my while half asleep I thought I heard my wife and son speaking but wife was sleeping and son was not in the room. Multiple times I heard this and every time I turned over nothig.
    I asked (in my head) whos there? A voice in front of my face says “me, Justins body, Debbies body. ” Then I was poked in the back by a different voice and my name whispered in my ear. All went away after this as iwas wide awake w/ a racing heart. Any thoughts? Also during all this I sat half way up only to realize my body hadn’t really moved then something pulled me back into my body quickly.

  • Claire September 17, 2014, 2:10 pm

    May I suggest, for those who fear the very subject of ‘death’, that perhaps they might like to google the free pdf copies of a couple of ebooks by Anthony Borgia, called, “Life in the World Unseen’, followed by, “More About Life in the World Unseen”.

    (They’re free because they’re now public domain, so please avoid any websites trying to fleece you for them!)

    Those two books alone, will quickly help one come to realize that ‘death’ as we tend to think of it, is nothing to fear, and that what awaits one on the other side, is rather surprising – and most delightful – beyond our wildest imaginings.

    They certainly liberated me from silly superstition and untruths I’d been taught. 🙂

  • Selina September 18, 2014, 12:06 am

    Hi Justin,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Sounds like you could have been in a half astral state. A racing heart, and body paralysis are some of the typical signs of the start of astral travel. In this state, it’s easier to hear and feel the astral realm. If it bothers you, ask your Spirit Guides to help you to not tap into these things. I like to ask that this only happen if it’s for my highest good in case there is a good reason to experience it that I’m not aware of the time. Hope this helps.


  • Gabby October 2, 2014, 4:03 am


    Recently when I was in a state between sleeping and waking I heard voices around me but saw no one. I was trying to wake up and I could see my surroundings but couldn’t move my body, this has happened to me before in the past and it is kinda scary. However, I didn’t feel scared this time because I just knew that the voices wouldn’t hurt me. I started to listen to the voices and they were talking about me. A man was saying to a woman how I couldn’t take something back with me because it doesn’t belong in my “realm”. She wanted me to take it in case of anything, I really don’t know, but he told her no that I just couldn’t. He didn’t sound mean or evil he was just saying to this woman how this item didn’t belong in my “realm”. It was really weird, does it mean anything?

  • Selina October 2, 2014, 4:46 am

    Hi Gabby,

    Sounds exactly what you describe it to be. Two people who do not “live” in this dimensional reality that we are in. You may have astral travelled and gained something while doing so which wouldn’t translate into our reality. Both sound like they had your good in mind, but each one had a different opinion.

    Take it for what it is. Sometimes we do tap into conversations that we wouldn’t otherwise have access to because our brain waves are at the right frequency to do so. Thanks for sharing this with us! It is an interesting experience!

    Take care,

  • Cecelia October 4, 2014, 2:13 pm

    Hi there. Last night i woke up to go to the bathroom and then returned and just as i fell asleep it was asif i woke again but i froze, i couldnt move or open my eyes, i just heard like a mix of whispering all around me and all i could remember from what i heard, was: “its a girl!”. Right after that i fell asleep. What was that!!

  • C. C. Scott October 6, 2014, 12:04 am

    Last night I was doing off on a friend’s couch. I was thinking about string theory and how other smaller dementions are entangled. I heard a woman’s voice say “I heard that!” It was a scream, not a whisper.

    My eyes were open, but I couldn’t move and I felt a presence above me. She started to say my name, and kept telling me to look up. She said she was going to kill me, started laughing and then I could move again and it was over.

    Either I had some misfires with my neurons, or I hit the frequency I’ve been hoping existed

  • Nicole aguilar October 12, 2014, 2:18 am

    Well ever since I was 14 I have had these episodes of this state where im almost awake Still asleep and have heard voices its happened many times too many to remember but on two occasions I have seen the spirit in my dream and the first time she was yelling at me in my room as I was asleep only I could see her its hard to explain but its almost like a dream only once she stopped yelling at me she threw something off my tv towards me instantly I fully woke up and turned on the light only to see the object on the floor next to my bed I have another time something like that had happened to me but I would like to hear what you all think is going on

  • Selina October 14, 2014, 4:34 am

    Hi Nicole,

    Sounds like you have had some interesting things happen for a while! This particular incident that you describe feels like the female spirit was trying to tell you something but you weren’t able to perceive so she started to yell and use her energy to move objects. She feels a little frustrated but harmless in her energy.

    If you want to try, before you go to bed, ask her to find a way to get the message across to you so you can perceive and understand it. Or you can also ask your spirit guides to get the message to you as well.

    Take care,

  • Bambi October 27, 2014, 4:41 am

    Hi Selena, I have read a lot of what everybody has experienced here, but nothing quite like what I experienced last night, a d I’m quite puzzled. When I was ready to go to sleep and layed down, I said my prayers and fell asleep quickly but was woken up from deep sleep by a young man’s voice, that said “hey”, the voice was calm and clear and I did not feel anger or felt irritated or anything bad, but no one else was in the house except my roommate, who also heard the voice say hey, and also he was woken up out of deep sleep!
    Is it possible that there are wandering spirits, that try to have conversations with the living? I am a strong believer in God, but also believe that spirits walk among us and so do angels and demons. I just would like to hear to hear your thoughts on this!
    Thank you

  • Selina October 28, 2014, 1:57 am

    Hi Bambi,

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Interesting that you both heard the voice. You must both have been open to it in your sleep state. Yes agreed that this spirit feels calm and very nice. I do believe that spirits can exist in many different forms and planes or dimensions. Also I do think that spirits can communicate with us in lots of ways including coming in our dreams and when we are in the astral state, giving us signs in the physical world, sending us impressions and messages through our physical and psychic senses.

    I believe that spirits are never truly “lost” or “wandering” as God always knows where each one of us is. This young man feels like he was just saying hello and would like to help to guide you.

    Thanks for your comment!
    All the best,

    Hi Selina,

    I posted something yesterday; But I think, I have probably deleted by mistake. First, I want to congratulate you for such an amazing blog! Very informative. And the fact that you are in Canada is AMAZING !!! Secondly, I would like to share some of my experiences with you, to see if I can find some clarity on what I have been experiencing. Since I was a little girl I remember not being able to sleep because I could hear hundreds of voices talking at the same time (men, women, and even children) – the voices were not cruel, or telling me to do anything bad. They will just talk all at the same time. As a member of a ‘very’ Catholic family.. I always thought that it was something evyl and I will be too scare to even talk about it to anyone in my family about this.

    Dreams about predictions of things that will happen (like the Huracan in New Orleands, 2005) have being part of my life, as well as horrible nightmares that stopped a few years ago once I started to work on my spiritual self. Yesterday morning I was half awake when I heard the voices again, hundreds of them.. talking at the same time. I got very scare, but noticed that when I focused I was able to hear more clearly some of them… some voices were stronger than others. There was this man voice that said “help me”.. there was a dim white/blue light on my room where I sleep with my husband. I woke up very agitated; I have never tell my husband about the voices, but I finally told him yesterday. I am not sure if you will be able to help me clarify a little bit my situtation. What do you think all this means?

    Your feedback and comments will be highly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance ! – Jess. 🙂

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I know of one other person who described an episode of being able to hear all the voices out there at once. I don’t think it’s common, but I also don’t think it’s odd. It’s interesting to see that you have started to discern how to tune into just one of the voices.

    As you raise your vibrations through your spiritual journey, you will tap into higher levels of energy and hence you may not have predictive dreams that are so destructive in nature. If they return, you can also ask not to receive them if it bothers you.

    You may be opening up to mediumship abilities in a different way than before. Think of a wide receiver picking up all sorts of radio stations all at once. Because of your own work and shifts on the planet, now you are able to hear one voice in the crowd of voices. Some of them come in and out as you refine your own frequencies.

    I have to also include that if you are concerned you should see a mental health practitioner. Even if I don’t feel that this is what’s going on, as I’m not an expert in mental health, I would suggest you consider this.

    However, I do feel that you have gifts as a medium and one day you may choose to work on that.

    All the best,

  • Jessica October 30, 2014, 4:27 am

    Hi Selina,

    Thank you so very much for your reply! And thank you for having this wonderful space for people to share their experiences. 🙂 I am not really concern about having a mental issue – just a bit concern of what others (who are not aware of a different reality) may think about my experiences. My spiritual path started at a younge age – I went throug lots of difficult experiences in life; I just never understood what the voices meant, so I have to thank you so much for this enlightement. About my dreams, the nightmares stopped a few year ago (thank God!)- Since I can sometimes control my dreams, I was able to learned how to protect myself while dreaming.

    I am definitely interested in working on my spiritual self. Do you have any advice in regards to how to start the mediumship path?

    Wishing you peace, health and happiness,

  • Selina October 31, 2014, 3:31 am

    Hi Jessica,

    There are several ways to approach learning mediumship. If you are in an area to study with a teacher, that is the best way. There is nothing better than having the energy of group to start learning plus you’ll have ongoing support while in the class.

    If you aren’t able to study with someone, you could read and then practice what you’ve learned from books. I know there are several people who have published books on this subject including the how to part. A search on google or amazon will give you some choices.

    In terms of spiritual growth and also for your mediumship abilities, I suggest you start a regular meditation practice. This can be in a group format or sitting by yourself. Meditation makes a difference in psychic and mediumship abilities not to mention spiritual growth in general.

    I teach a workshop series and I also have some students who opt for booking a few sessions with me one-on-one either in person or through skype as they are too far or their schedules don’t work. I always suggest that if someone is able to make the group that they do as they will grow quicker and have a more enriching experience from learning and interacting with others. It also helps to make one feel “normal” by being with others on the same path. Look in your area to see if there are groups or classes.

    I hope this helps you! Take care!

    Last night, while asleep, I heard loud and clear “oh, I’m going to die tomorrow. Sorry. I forgot.” In that instant, I went from asleep to wide awake. The voice wasn’t threatening – it was just matter of fact and as if they were letting me down.

    My 5 year old son was in bed next to me and although he was fast asleep, my mind associated the voice with him – the voice was a grown man’s so it didn’t sound like my son. All of this happened around 3am and I didn’t sleep again for the rest of the night as I was worried that it was my son or someone else I love speaking to me and it was a premonition. Ever heard of something like this before or can make any more sense of this than me??? x

  • Selina November 3, 2014, 6:16 am

    Hi Calico75,

    Well that experience would make anyone worry! Especially as you have a young child that you care about and would not want anything to happen to. Two things – one is that this spirit may actually have been someone who was alive and his spirit was astral travelling and you happened to hear his remembering. In that case, this spirit is not necessarily associated with you. Second, many times when we hear things while sleeping it is in a dimension or a frequency that is not associated with our daily waking life and has no direct impact in your life.

    I have had many clients and students have hearing experiences of things that they feel are unsettling because they don’t know the context of it. Try not to let it disturb you and if you want to make your mind more at ease, ask for protection from your guides and angels for you and your family every day. You are already protected as is your son, but sometimes if we feel we need a little extra, it helps us to ask. 🙂

    Many blessings,

  • Jessica November 6, 2014, 1:37 am

    Dear Selina,

    I just wanted to thank you one more time for your time and your kind words. I will be out of the country for a few weeks, but once I come back I will definitely look into assisting to one of the workshops you teach. In the meantime, can you please recommend me a name of a book to read about this subject (how to develope the mediumship abilities).

    Wishing you a great rest of the week,

  • Chelsey Fitch November 8, 2014, 2:46 am

    Hi there. Last night I was in between sleep and being awake and I heard, “How are you”. Earlier that night I had weird flashes of some woman ( I would get flashes of people when I was younger but it hasn’t happened in a long time.) The flashes of the woman made me feel she was in distress and I feel I blocked myself at a young age due to fear and so last night, as I always did instinctively as a child, I covered myself in white light and asked to be protected because I was scared. I woke up many times through out the night and felt an agitated presence. But the last time I woke up I didn’t completely wake up, I was very comfortable and I felt someone saying but not out loud, almost like I ‘felt’ them saying “How are you.” Because of the events that had happened that night I tried to ignore the question even though I heard it loud and clear. Then I felt almost a psychic nudge, like someone nudging me in the arm. And asked me again, and again I ignored it. I was nudged two more times and to just give a reply in my mind I said “I am well” but felt an overpowering urge not to ask back because I had awoke more and was feeling fear again. But also felt like I shouldn’t answer back. I always try to put these moments past me and continue with my life. I am very interested in all things in this world and I just wanted to share because it wont leave my thoughts today. It has been shut off for a while but it all started last night after I had tried to see my own aura for fun but was having a hard time. (I had only been able to a couple times before years ago.) After trying to see my aura all these old feelings came back of not being alone when I am alone, feeling presences, I swear I saw a woman, a little haggard in white by my clients bed and I feel she saw me (I do personal support and can sleep at my job when she sleeps) when I went to the bathroom. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!
    Namaste 🙂

  • Selina November 12, 2014, 2:31 am

    Hi Jessica,

    I don’t know of any books for mediumship offhand that I would recommend. But one other medium I know told me that she got her start after reading Talking to Heaven by James Von Praagh. Maybe start there?


  • Kaylee November 22, 2014, 8:26 am

    I’m so relieved to know that I’m not the only one who’s experienced this! It hasn’t happened to me very often. The first time I can remember it happening was when I was 12 or 13 and I was lying in my bed with my 10/11 year old sister on the bunk bed above me. Just barely before I was asleep, I heard a man’s voice (sounded middle-aged) whisper my name really loudly in my ear. It sounded like he was inches from my head. I jerked awake and kinda swung my hands around my head (almost like a reflex). Once awake, I could still hear my mom and dad talking about something random in the livingroom way down the hall. Since then, sometimes I can hear quiet chatter- no distinguishable words- but like the very faint sound of a crowd of people, like a school cafeteria but super faint and sometimes just a bunch of people whispering at the same time. I usually just ignored it and fell asleep. But the one-on-one voice thing happened again. It happened to me again just this last Sunday. I was almost asleep and my sister was reading on the bed above me (yup- same bunk bed but different house since we moved) and when I was about to lose consciousness it sounded like a voice very similar to the first man, but he spoke aloud, though still quietly, “Hi Kaylee!!” and then the voice of an 11-12 year old girl interrupted him saying “Kaylee, Kaylee Hi!!!” in a really fast and excited tone. It sounded like the man was inches away from my head again and the girl was about 5 feet away. It scared the crap out of me! I jerked awake with a gasp and started breathing heavy and looked all around the room and then I asked my sister if she heard anything and she said she didn’t and then I asked if someone said my name and she said that she didn’t and the rest of the house was asleep. I always just brushed this stuff off as my imagination or when I started dreaming before I was fully unconscious or something. I thought I had imagined it and I was just overreacting, but I’ve seen so many other people sharing incredibly similar stories. Now I’m thinking it wasn’t just my imagination, but that I was able to hear voices from a spiritual dimension. I don’t really know what to make of it. I personally believe that the spirit world is here on Earth, but on a different dimensional plane that prevents conscious interaction. Is that realistic?

  • Aissa December 11, 2014, 6:55 am

    I had a very strange experience as I was going of to sleep a male voice said to me Remember I still love you ?? Was really freaked out by this .have always had a good sixth sense on situations but made me very anxious so I shut myself of from it and sometimes it catches me by surprise .Just not sure if it was dream or spirit but it was so clear like they lent over spoke to me .

  • Kate December 24, 2014, 10:49 pm

    A few years ago, I purchased my current home. Since the very first night I slept there, I have dealt with extremely noisy spirits, a previous occupant that dabbled in “the dark arts” (I found binding sigils, etc), and now most recently I’ve been woken by someone/thing messing with the radio on my alarm clock at 1 am. Just last night, I was woken by someone whisper-shouting “Hey!!” even though my boyfriend slept peacefully beside me. I thought I had rid & cleared my home shortly after I moved in (the phenomena was much scarier then). Things have been peaceful until recently. My boyfriend moved in a few weeks ago. I am wondering…. Who or what is trying to communicate with me? Is it the previous owner (who left this world intentionally) not liking another man in his house? My late husband (who passed the same exact way, not in this house) that doesn’t want me with someone else? Or something more sinister (did I not find and remove all the items of the demonic rituals)? I no longer get an ominous feeling in my home like I used to. I’m hoping things don’t escalate to that point again. Insight from anyone would be very welcome.

  • octotrot December 30, 2014, 8:37 am

    I hear voices quite a lot in the am hours as I’m getting ready for sleep. My cycle has been off for years I’m usually sleeping 4 am to lunch and the day and night are mine. Not just laying down,waking up but brushing my teeth and eating a snack. Most of the time it forms words from within my ear,sometimes it ambient conversations that aren’t there sometimes its directed to me. Not so much in visual experiences except seeing not human but clearly similar faces in glass,shadows forming and moving but things upon inspection quickly disapear and get written off.

    On rarest occasions its been physical. I was walking into my bathroom after waking up in terror from a sp episode and in the short dark hallway I felt resistance as if I bumped into something. I heard something laugh, it said what sounded like oops,see? and the sensation of being tickled hit me and actually brought me down to the floor laughing for a minute or so.

    I always get weird dreams on active nights. In one instance I was among thousands of refugees in the forest and there was one tree that was so big it covered the range of what the eye could see with a human face in the bark that constantly bled, giant exposed roots that bled. There were hooded attendants serving it and they demanded a sacrifice from everyone in the big herd fleeing something I dont remember but going back was a bad idea. So women were leaving babies between the roots and they got swallowed up in mud and fog, fathers leaving sons, people kneeling to it, people that offered jewelry and money gave offense and the hooded people killed them and it was all foggy,muddy,bloody weirdness that I don’t want to dwell on because the spot it happened on is somewhere I knew from childhood and always gave me fear to pass through in reality minus the people and huge tree of course.

    Anyways I cheated it by putting on my jackets hood and passing myself off as an attendant and rejoining the group and when the weird religion bit was over the attendants were all smiles and kindness and asked everyone what they wanted for the feast. Everyone and I were famished so shouts of steaks and all that. A big open spot with picnic tables. Everyone pigged out but I got a bad feeling and started to sneak off back home.As I turned around everyone eating melted and turned into a redish sap.

    Having reached home I was so tired and hungry I couldn’t make it inside so I laid down under a pecan tree,ate a little, fell asleep there and its roots reached out and strangled me to death. Woke up couldn’t breathe, deep breathing and a cup of coffee.

    I remember all my dreams very clearly and thats a very tame one compared to the sp episode mind breaking reality melders. To me hearing voices means dreams and the more visual/feeling anxious means sp so don’t sleep which of course turns whatever reception to screeching.

    My only certainty is its weird.

  • angie January 1, 2015, 6:35 pm

    Hi, could you shed any light on this, I often here words shouted out in sleep, I often dream of spirits screaming and shouting, I often dream I’m floating around, outside over the sea, fields etc, I feel so peaceful doing this, the other night after family problems I had a restless sleep, I felt like I was asleep bit not relaxed or in a deep sleep, and a man voice shouted relax, it woke me up with a jump

  • Sarah January 21, 2015, 8:21 pm

    Hello Selina,

    I just found your website through a Google search of my ‘symptoms’. My entire life, I have been sensitive to spirits and have seen a couple of them that I know of, possibly more. I am a devout Christian, so for me, this sort of thing (tuning into other realms, etc) is discouraged. My problem is, for the past few months, I have been hearing voices as I fall asleep. I have no family history of Skitzophrenia, although I do suffer from panic and anxiety attacks. Let me backtrack – since I was 4, I would hear my name being said by a woman in a gentle voice as I was falling asleep. After many years, that stopped.

    This past year, I began hearing muted sounds of voices as I was falling asleep, then after a month or two they turned into an audible voice, saying a bunch of gibberish things that made no sense, and then – and now – just before falling asleep, I hear many voices at once, very audibly, as if I’m in a crowded room full of people. I can usually pick out phrases of what they’re saying and some of it scares me, while other portions make me laugh.

    My question is, do you believe these are auditory hallucinations, I am developing Skitzophrenia, or do you think these are spirits? I have to admit, it has made me afraid to go to bed on many occasions. I would have thought my house was perhaps haunted, but we moved two months ago, and its still going on. Any insight would be more than appreciated.

    Thank you!

  • Selina January 22, 2015, 3:31 am

    Hi Sarah,

    Thank you sharing your experiences with us. I am not a doctor so I can’t tell you if this is a mental health issue or not. I can only give you what I know about this from an energetic/spiritual nature. So if you are concerned, I recommend that you seek a professional in the mental health field.

    Here’s what I know from my own experiences and other people who share this type of experience with me. It only tends to happen in that in-between wake and sleep state. This happens for many people who are not mentally unstable.

    It sounds like you may be experiencing clairaudience. That is a psychic ability which means you can “hear” things from the energetic realm – whether from spirits or from energy waves coming from other beings or dimensions. Remember that everything is energy and that information is carried on wave forms / particles. That includes things that we are currently trying to understand from both a spiritual and scientific nature.

    What you are experiencing isn’t unique. There are many people who have had the exact experience as you (myself included). When your mind is in a more receptive state, such as falling asleep or just waking up, it’s easier for you to hear on a psychic level.

    Most people are very open as a child. It makes sense that your ability to do this was more attuned and more open when you were younger. As we get older, our abilities tend to shut down for many different reasons.

    Now that we are experiencing earth changes with the magnetic pole shift, changes in the sun, and other interesting energetic shifts on the planet, I find that more and more people are starting to open up to their natural abilities.

    Just because you can hear this doesn’t mean that there are spirits hanging around your house all the time. In fact, it’s more likely that you are opening up to a particular frequency range and it becomes akin to “eavesdropping” for a few seconds. Sometimes there are messages meant for us , but usually that comes to us as someone speaking directly to us.

    I hope this helps you.

    All the best,

  • Kelsey January 30, 2015, 7:48 am

    I’ve been experiencing some things that I can relate to with what I have seen in the comments. Recently more since the passing of a close loved one in November I’ve been hearing ringing and the sound of what seems to be wind in my ears. Note all of these experiences happen more when I am either falling asleep but more commonly when I am waking up. I have heard a male voice say hey to me when I was laying down but not sleeping, I have had what I firmly believe to have been a dream visitation from my passed loved one. And a few times I have been able to see through my eyelids, also rarely however it seems like images are being drawn into my mind, one image I deeply believe was aliens. The colours are violet/purple like when these images come to me. Sometimes when I am in a meditative trance my body feels like led and it feels as if I could float out of it, though I have not to my knowledge. Also I have had experiences that felt as if I was sleeping even though I was awake and my body would shake uncontrollably and I would see flashing lights and I said “get out of my room” and when it was over I seen someone in what looked like a black cloak lean over me.I’ve felt like I was having a seizure. Sometimes when I am stressed I start shaking all over and I get intense ringing in my ears. I don’t know if I’m crazy or sick. But I’m glad I’m having similar experiences to others, I feel less alone.

  • michelle February 5, 2015, 7:59 am

    Hi, tonight as i was falling asleep, i heard a mans voice as clear as day in my ear, and he said, they want you to be wrong, i said who does and then a lady said, there. Any ideas or am i just nuts?

  • Selina February 6, 2015, 1:42 am

    Hi Michelle,

    When you tap into other frequencies that your mind doesn’t usually perceive until you are relaxed and in the almost asleep zone, sometime what you hear may not make sense. We are only getting snippets of a conversation most of the time.

    Sometimes it’s a message to us and other times it’s just like overhearing a conversation that might not be about us.

    A suggestion: Ask your spirit guides (out loud or in your mind) that if there is something important that you didn’t get from that experience, that they make sure they help you get what you need in a clear and positive way if possible.

    Take care!

  • Misty February 12, 2015, 10:40 pm

    I stumbled across this site by chance today and wow, very helpful. All my life I have had things happen to me and I blew it off including hearing and seeing people when I am in that relaxed zone and also asteral travel. I had no clue what these things were and chalked them off as nightmares. I also see a purple flame that I did not ask for but comes when I’m down or sick. I’m confused on a few things, ok.. Maybe a lot. I also have a empath gift and until this year , I did not know what was going on with me. I get a reading with my medium once a year and she picked up on the activity and asked me if I am now seeing things when I am awake. Well, yes I am. She told me I had a gift and it comes from my native ancestors. My grandfather was Native American. Well the thing is, now that I am accepting these things… the more things happen. I was a single mom for the longest and I just didn’t have time and didn’t want to accept these things. Now I am embracing it. Sometimes I still fell nervous in ways like am I going crazy, are these things just in my head. I know my medium picked up on what’s going on with me but I still have that tiny bit of doubt and I am also nervous to tell a lot of people. Even tho my medium went over this with me, it’s like I’m grasping for more confirmation that I’m not nuts! I wonder if anyone else goes through this? I have a lot of experiences besides the waking up/ falling asleep zone. I now see things whe him awake. Is it normal for me to doubt myself? I don’t want to feel this way and I pray constantly, I just wish I knew for sure what was going on with me.

  • Kenni York March 12, 2015, 8:45 pm

    Hi Selina,

    I am a little afraid. For months i have been hearing famaliar voices downstairs as i am half asleep upstairs during mid morning when no one is home but me. That doesnt frighten me…what bothers me is that yeaterday i heard an unfamiliar voice in the room with me and it addressed me saying “many may sound like me but there’s only 1 me”…and this morning i heard the distinct sound of my front door unlocking causing me to sit up, panic, and dial 911 before realizing it waa an impossibility bc my alarm hadn’t gone off. I am terrified of these new sounds and voice and what was said….can u give me insight that may minimize my fear. I want to understand…

  • Selina March 24, 2015, 4:06 am

    Hi Kenni,

    Most of the time, we hear these things in that in-between sleep and awake state. It sounds like you are hearing while you are wide awake – is that correct? While not unusual to hear this way, I have had experience myself and some of my clients have too that is not in the in-between state of sleep and awake.

    If it is a spirit, there really is nothing to be afraid of. Most spirits are either helpful, playful, or mischievous in a non-harmful way. It is very rare for a spirit to be mean and even so, they usually are just trying to scare you on purpose as they may not be so highly evolved or they think it’s their space and not yours.

    You can always ask God, your Spirit Guides, your Angels, to help this spirit on it’s way or if there is a message to receive that you get it clearly without being scared.

    All the best to you,

  • Courtney April 3, 2015, 12:36 pm

    I had just been asleep, completely passed out on my living room floor with my 4 year old son. I was ha ing a dream, I vaguely remember being in a crowded place and I heard “courtney”. It didn’t sound like it was from my dream, it sounded real life, a male voice that I feel like I know but can’t figure out who. I felt like they were sitting on the couch watching me sleep. I woke up right away. What could this be…. And why?

  • Selina April 12, 2015, 9:43 pm

    Hi Courtney,

    Most likely a spirit that wanted to get your attention and knew you were more open in the dream state. It’s easier for spirit to communicate with us when we aren’t so active, such as sleep or falling asleep, rather than when our minds and attention are busy as when we are awake.

    I feel good energy from this spirit. Doesn’t feel like a guide. Rather feels like a spirit that was not being obtrusive by watching you sleep. Feels like he watches over your son. Comes and goes rather than there all the time.

    All the best,

  • Kasturi Srivastav May 23, 2015, 8:15 am

    I want ti share something which is really bothering me a lot. From last 2-3 nights at around 2-4am i can hear a girl of around 16-18years who is explaining something. She seems to b disturbed and worried. the voice gradually becomes louder. i try to avoid it and it becomes very disturbing for me. if i want i can conversate with her very easily but i feel horrified. An year ago i had such experience but thn it was of so many people fighting for something, i was driving back from my college and d music was very loud..but still i could hear such unusual quarrel very easily.
    Pleasr help me. It is intolerable now.

  • Selina Khan May 30, 2015, 11:30 pm

    Hi Kasturi,

    Do you work with your chakras? Have you tried closing them down before sleep and asking for white light to surround you? I find that prayer helps. If you are able to tell this girl something, try telling her to go into the light. If that does not work, ask for your guides and angels to help her to find peace. See if this helps you.

    All the best,

  • psychic chris June 7, 2015, 12:12 am


    3am this just passed Saturday I was suffering from delayed sleep due to my nature as a shift worker. While doing so I fell into a meditative state halfway between sleep but I was aware of my surroundings. I heard male voices thinking they where just drunks on their way home from a bar 5 minutes walk from my home but the voices sounded closer and more audial than the drunk outside (in fact my street was deserted at the time). I heard my name being called. To prove that they where spiritual visitors I asked them who the woman I was destined to be with in life it gave me a name. Sometime later I saw a woman about my age with a blonde haired boy toddler in a playpen or portacot he was reaching out to me with his right arm…

    I don’t have any children nor am I in a relationship with anyone at the moment could this visual be prophetic?

  • Brian Dalton June 9, 2015, 4:37 am

    Hi there, my sister heard my name whispered to her at 3am one night, our Mum has only passed 8mths ago, what does this mean?

  • Selina Khan June 11, 2015, 5:02 pm

    Hi Psychic Chris,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Yes this could be a prophetic message. From my own experiences, I have seen certain things in my own life that were on the prophetic side, and they came true literally, they came true in a metaphorical sense or in a way that fulfilled the vision yet not the way my mind interpreted it.

    Your message seems to be very clear as you asked for something specific. Usually when I am given messages from spirits in this way, I have a sense whether the spirit can be trusted and if the message is literal or not. There is a gut sense and a knowing. Trust your own instincts on this.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan June 11, 2015, 5:07 pm

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for your question. It could be your Mum is trying to let her know that she is around in spirit. Often time it’s easier for spirit to communicate with us when it’s quiet and our minds are at rest. It’s also possible that it was a spirit guide or another spirit, however, your sister may remember if the voice was female or male, and if there was a sense or presence of your Mum or a dream. Even if she doesn’t remember any of that, it is likely that your Mum has been trying to come through to both of you and this is one way that some spirits choose.

    I’m sorry to hear of your loss. I do feel that your Mum is at peace and strong in the light.


  • Yvette June 13, 2015, 6:37 am

    You are not alone!! This happens 2 me! even the bad predictive dreams since I was a little girl! I have always been scared but recently found a “need” to connect! I think I am ready to embrace this! Hope all is well on your side! 🙂

    Last night just as I fell asleep a very old male voice asked me where I was. I replied back, in bed. I immediately woke up. I have heard this voice before, it was when I was in my mid twenties, I was pregnant. The voice told me that I would loose the baby and that it was a girl but I would have another girl. And I did. Who would you think this voice is…God?

  • Selina Khan June 24, 2015, 3:35 pm

    Hi Sharon,

    No, feels more like a family member in spirit that was that was trying to reassure you that although you would lose the first child, you would have the opportunity to bring the soul back in again.

    Take care,

  • Thea July 10, 2015, 10:37 am

    So I went through some spiritually things last night.
    I was asleep but this voice woke me up and I was wide awake. The voice, i don’t know, I cant put words on it but i’ll try. It was loud, right beside my ear and it was a man, it wasn’t a normal voice, normally i think i wouldn’t understand what he said, it was really.. well, really “sloppy” that’s not the right word but that’s the closest i could think of. But i understood what he said right away anyway , okay so note that he didn’t have a common voice. Anyway the voice said “Give me your hand” and right after that my dog started barking (she sleeps outside my door). And the voice wasn’t inside my head, I think my dog confirmed that. But I wasn’t scared of the voice i was totally relaxed and confused but I didn’t know the meaning of “Give me your hand”.
    Please help me, i’ve been searching for an answer for hours. Do you think this was a message? I’ve only heard 1 more voice and it was when i was in the middle of “asleep” and “awake” nothing big but it said “Hey”. It was not the same “sloppy” voice but it was a man.
    I aslo see the same numbers everyday. It’s number 10, 66. 44, 21, 33, 55 and alot of twin numbers like 12:12, 14:14 and so on.. I don’t know if that have something to do with it.
    Back to the voice. I’m from Sweden so english is not my 1st language it’s swedish. And isn’t it pretty weird that the voice was in english and not swedish?
    Please answer me Selina. Or anyone that has a clue what this means with “give me your hand” .
    Take care!

  • Selina Khan July 13, 2015, 2:45 pm

    Hi Thea,

    Thanks for your comment. Seeing numbers that are in sequences like the ones you see are part of the spiritual awakening that humanity is currently going through. Many people see repeated number patterns when they start to become more aware. Some people assign meaning to particular numbers, like 5 represents change coming, 9 is completion, etc. Some people see it as a sign from the universe that they are in the flow or on the right track. Others see it as activating something within you that is part of your spiritual awakening.

    The spirit voice – English rather than Swedish. Perhaps it was the spirit’s first language when alive and their preference. Perhaps this is the best way your mind could interpret it. Spirit can speak any language if need be.

    As for the message, my feeling is this spirit wanted to show you something and inadvertently startled you awake. If you are curious, ask for him to return and explain what he wants. Invite him back but ask him to be clear and not startle you. Then tell yourself, you want to remember everything, in case he connects with you through your dreams or while in the astral state.

    All the best,

    While cleaning my Grandparents house the other day, I heard a group of voices talking. its an indistinct murmuring, I,ve heard voices talking in their house before. I dont think its anything malevolent or mean. It sounds like maybe 15-20 people at one time talking. Male and female. The best way I can describe it is like living in an apartment and the people down the hall are having a party and you can hear the voices but can not make out what they are saying. The house is not very old this is occurring in maybe going back to the 1930s at earliest. No deaths have occurred in house , my grandparents have owned the house since 1972 and purchased from the original owner and builder. My grand mother , mother and aunt have all heard voices since early when they lived in the house. Names being called , nothing truly hair raising. I,m curious. The land the house sits on used to house an hotel from the late 1800s, but the hotel sat at the back lot about 200 foot from where the house is . The house was moved from original spot in 1952 , moved maybe at 15 miles to its present location . Any ideas. I believe it could be something, I am unsure what honestly. I had no music, going, my grandparents dog was asleep in back room and all tvs were off. they do not own a computer of any sort or radio. so i am honestly unsure.

  • Elizabeth July 26, 2015, 9:47 am

    Last night my boyfriend and I were sleeping together when he woke me up. He asked me if I heard him say something and I vaguely remember him saying “that’s not funny” but I thought he was just talking in his sleep and that it happened awhile ago. He told me he was having a bad dream and that he yelled this several times in his dream, and when he did, I had put my hand on his face to comfort him and woke him up. But when I woke him up and he tried talking to me, I was still asleep. I thought I was awake when I heard him talking and put my hand on his face but I was not. He does not think he said it out loud, and thinks that my soul heard his soul and tried to comfort him. Is that possible? What’s going on?

  • Selina Khan July 27, 2015, 1:34 pm

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Yes it sounds like you two are tuned into each other! When you and he were sleeping, you were open to his vibration and may have even been connected to him on the astral plane, aware of his energy and dream. When you were sleeping, you were more open and you received his thought vibration. Your spirit responded although you were sleeping. Because it was not your conscious mind that was responding, you may not have any recollection of it.

    Many blessings,

  • Selina Khan July 27, 2015, 1:40 pm

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for your comment. Although it’s possible that there are still spirits connected to the land from the hotel, my intuition is telling me that there is probably an energy portal in the house and that it is drawing in what’s called energetic or psychic imprints or impressions or is connecting to a different plane of spirits. Energetic imprints would be the energy of the people that is left behind rather than the actual spirits themselves. It feels more like an opening – kind of like an open telephone line where the receiver hasn’t been hung up and it picks up general passers by.

    Take care,

  • Kamal August 4, 2015, 10:48 pm

    Hi Salina ! It’s great website . I started meditation in June to get rid of stress and felt all good feelings like flying , vibrating , hearing chimes, bells , thunder , wind , flashes of white light , sensation and itching in head and fore head , falling from sky full of stars , would smell different fragrances while meditating , feeling of becoming expanded and shrinking and seeing different colours , now what scared me was voices coming from outside when meditating like knocking , whisper ,someone crying , screaming , talking in different language . I also experienced people calling me in public place . I discontinued meditation and worked on grounding . Still when I sleep I see white flashes of light , repeating numbers everywhere like 1111, 888 etc . I hear humming voices , someone trying to wake me up in night . My concern is does it mean some spirits inside my house and around my bed or my ears are hearing voices from other dimensions . Is it negative energy trying to get my attention or divine . Thanks

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2015, 1:11 pm

    Hi Kamal,

    Thanks for reading the blogs! Sounds like it’s both – you tapping into other dimensions and also spirit around you trying to get your attention. Doesn’t feel negative to me, just bothersome! Before you go to sleep, ask your guides to surround you with light that will only let loving vibrations through.

    Some people are too open, believe it or not. Most of us spend our time trying to open up, but if your meditations are opening you up that much, you might want to shut down your chakras just a little bit, or again say a prayer before you begin for protection and guidance.

    See what happens and please let us know if it shifts anything!

    Many blessings,

  • Lisa August 10, 2015, 5:16 pm

    Hi There* I’m sorry this might be very weird but I just have to know what is going on with me. Just when I fall asleep at night I basically start hearing really loud white noise in the background and then I hear a very scary manly voice mumbling. I dont really remember exactly what was said but some of what I could make out is that ‘” I am going to take you” or “you will be mine” .. It really scared me so much I kept waking up sweating but it kept on occuring the whole night long. Do u know what this could be? I really need some closure.

  • Selina Khan August 12, 2015, 9:30 am

    Hi Lisa,

    This sounds like the beginnings of astral travel. Many people hear a load roar – such as loud white noise – at the very start of the spirit starting to separate from the body. Other common reported symptoms are paralysis and/or a racing heart. Once you start the process you may start to hear other beings speak as you are now able to access other frequencies that are usually not perceived when we are wide awake.

    As for the phrase, the context of this really depends on who it is that is speaking to you. “I am going to take you” is very different from “you will be mine”.

    If you want to try, please envision a circle of light around you before you sleep. As this is your creation of light around you, you can intend it to only vibrate with love for your highest good. You can also ask spirits that work with you (such as family in spirit and spirit guides) to keep you safe and only let those who are there to assist in your growth who vibrate with love and light to enter the circle of light. It doesn’t matter if you know who they are – they have been working with you for a long time and hear you.

    All the best,

  • Viki August 16, 2015, 1:35 pm

    Hi selina,last week during sleep I had strange experience.usually I’ll go to sleep by 1.15am.sharply after some time during my sleep I just felt like floating in water.suddenly I wokeup and my heart beat raised that I am floating in air about one feet above my bed upside down,only my feet is on the bed .I can’t able to move my body and even can’t able to speak.then I put my full energy and forced myself down to bed.after I reached down to bed I had strange feelings and severe head pain,and I heard lots and lots of voices,I can’t able to understand the voices .because so so many voices at a time heard in my ears.what’s this…! I can’t understand why these are happenin to me! And am sure, i have a feeling or sense that someone is always near me.but no sign is there…these are the real experience in my life…from that night I can’t able to sleep and I lost my happiness.believe me,its true! No one is believing me…but what I’ll do…

  • Karen August 22, 2015, 9:25 am

    Hello Selina
    For the past couple of months going to sleep I hear a voice telling me things. Things like day of my birth and what happened in great detail.. Tells me why I was such a small birth weight, things that I may have been unaware of. My mum passed 25 years ago so I can’t ask her.
    This voice also seems to give me information on the future of my kids. It is a female voice but I find it odd to why she is talking to me about these things. So enlightening would be nice. Cheers Karen

  • Selina Khan August 27, 2015, 11:38 am

    Hi Karen,

    Thanks for your comment. You seem to have a good auditory channel open with this Spirit. How about asking her why she is telling you these things? Put it out to the spirit through your mind or out loud right before you fall asleep and see what the reply is.

    Please let us know what the response is.


  • Mel August 27, 2015, 10:37 pm

    Last night, I was half asleep, and all of a sudden, I hear a female voice that said “I Love You” but it wasnt just said once. It started to repeat faster and more times. Like an echo. I am not sure if it was my imagination. But it sounded so clear, I even opened my eyes and lifted my head up and looked to my right, since I heard as if it was coming from my right side. It lasted a few seconds, but it stopped. I layed back down trembling a bit since that scared me. Then everytime I tried going back to sleep, when i felt like i was entering a sleep stage, i would have this feeling of awareness, and my forehead and hands started to tingle. This happened a couple of times that night, I also felt my astral body move in some moments. I eventually managed to go to sleep. This has never happened to me before, are there any ideas on what it could of been?

  • Selina Khan September 2, 2015, 11:11 am

    Hi Mel,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Forehead and hands tingling is likely the way you start to experience the beginning of astral travel. Your energy body seems to start separating most noticeable with the hands and the forehead is either the third eye activating for your astral travels or also the beginning of separating. The voice is someone who guides you and is trying to let you know that everything is okay and you are very loved.


  • Colleen September 7, 2015, 10:54 pm

    Hello Selina,
    I was hoping to get your insight on some things that have happened at my boyfriends house. I was falling asleep then. I heard what sounded like a young boy saying hello. It scared me so much I felt paralyzed and unable to move. I was then able to mutter Jo-Jo-jo Joseph to wake up my boyfriend to then wake me up. Next I felt as if someone was standing behind my boyfriend and I as we sat on the couch watching tv and in the doorway stood a grey figure of a man. He stood very tall and had an old looking hat on. I’m terrified to fall asleep there for the fear of hearing voices when I fall asleep. There is also another disturbing story that makes me scared of the house. Please if you can help
    Let me know. Thank you colleen

  • Kayla September 20, 2015, 10:57 am

    I’ve been hearing voices when i lay down to go to sleep every night for as long as i can remember. The earliest instance i can remember happened when I was 6 or 7, and since then the voices have become many and very loud and clear. Sometimes they speak directly to me but most of the time i hear just scraps of what seems like conversation, as if I’m just walking by. I can usually determine the rough age of a voice and the gender. When I’m going through stressful times, these voices grow in number and volume and will sometimes keep me from falling asleep, however they never go away. I’ve been to see psychologists and the like, who helped me sort out many things in my life for which I’m thankful, however the voices still remain. It was only recently that someone suggested I may be hearing spirit voices instead of something my own mind was creating. Is this the most likely answer to what I’ve experienced my whole life? And if so, how can I develop this ability to try and help the spirits who may be seeking my aid? Thank you for providing this article, because it fit my experiences exactly.

  • Selina Khan September 22, 2015, 7:39 pm

    Hi Kayla,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. To develop your mediumship abilites, the best thing to do is to learn from a medium in your area that holds classes. You can also mentor with someone one-on-one. If these are not available to you, then I suggest reading as much as you can on mediumship and that you start to meditate. In order to help spirit, you’ll need to find out the best way for you to communicate with them. As your clairaudience is strong, it seems that this would be one way that would be more natural for you. However, you can learn to see and feel as well.

    Hope this helps. Take care,

  • Selina Khan September 22, 2015, 7:54 pm

    Hi Colleen,

    Two things here. First is that you have some abilities as you can see and hear spirit. It can be scary when you have these experiences but most spirits are not mean or manipulative. It’s up to you if you want to develop your gifts further or just let them be.

    Second is that these spirits likely know that you can see and hear them and that’s why they were making contact with you. Your boyfriend can choose to have his house cleared (have the spirits crossed if they aren’t already). If they have already crossed, they may be just popping in to either share a message or say hello. You can ask them not to show themselves to you if you are very scared or are bothered by them.


  • Kar September 26, 2015, 8:41 pm

    Hoping to gain some insight with a couple of incidents that happened to me in my dream state. Both happened within a week of each other. Both times the incidents happened over existing dreams ,almost like “pop ups” . The first time it happened , my sister’s face popped up suddenly while I was dreaming , it was totally unrelated to the dream I was having. She said in a loud ,clear voice “Look!” the tone of her voice woke me up immediately , and my heart was beating fast . Upon awakening ,I could hear a door somewhere in my house creaking. It frightened me , thinking someone was in my home. Thankfully there wasn’t , but it still rattled me to being woke like that.
    The second incident happened a few nights ago , this time it was like someone turned a radio on right beside me and played a song. It was so loud and clear , it made me cry as listened and recognized the lyrics of the song ,which was Superstar from Usher . Any ideas of why and who this is coming from would be greatly appreciated.

  • Selina Khan September 29, 2015, 10:54 am

    Hi Kar,

    I take it your sister is alive? It feels like a female that is related to you that is in spirit. She may be coming in these ways as to not frighten you or because this is the easiest way for her to get through to you. I get no vibration of meanness but rather a caring and loving vibe. Try asking her to show herself to you or to give you an indication of how she is related to you.

    All the best,

  • Cathy October 5, 2015, 1:30 pm

    Hi! This morning before I woke up fully I heard a young voice, I believe female, say “hello”. Any insight? My mom passed in March but this I believe was a young voice.

  • Amanda October 6, 2015, 5:53 am

    Hi I had a slightly different experience, I was awoken by a voice that I recognised as my husbands who is currently away on work trip, the voice said Stephanie, should I be worried?

  • Selina Khan October 7, 2015, 1:22 pm

    Hi Amanda,

    While we sleep, sometimes we astral travel. In that state, we can visit other dimensions and also people in this reality. It is more likely that your husband’s energy visited you while you were sleeping and you heard him speak your name. This is not for every instance of hearing a voice that is from someone who is still alive, but this is what it feels like in your case.

    Take care,

  • Holly October 9, 2015, 3:55 pm

    I heard my dead brother calling as if to say where are you and also sometimes I hear a friends name loud and clear.

  • Leslie October 13, 2015, 5:48 pm

    hi selina!
    I have been hearing, feeling and seeing people/voices/spirits since i was approx 3 years old. I am currently 30 years old and have realized that i could no longer ignore these gifts that a higher power has given to me. I go through very weird sleep situations, its when I’m about to go to sleep, i feel a presence over me and i feel frozen in time and it really just sends me into a sense of undeniable fear that i cannot control. Ive realized this is not going to go away as i was born with this gift. What can i do to start opening up to these spirits that are trying to engage or trying to reach out to me? I’m starting to feel like its time and day by day i find myself sageing my home, praying more than normal and being a little more aware of whats going on within my own person. Please help. Any suggestions would be glad gladly accepted.

  • Rona October 14, 2015, 5:47 am

    When I work late nights, I have often felt like someone is on the store with mgs. The other night, as I counted the cigarettes it felt like someone stood over me. This presence sends like a man. This morning around 5:08, I heard a child whisper, “Mom,I love you,” but when I checked my son’s room, he was asleep. It sounded like a girl. I feel creepy. Any arenas of who these spirits are?

  • Selina Khan October 16, 2015, 1:01 pm

    Hi Rona,

    Probably spirits that are just popping in. Sometimes they are attracted to people who have abilities as they know you can feel and hear them. I don’t think these are related to you. If you want to, you can ask Archangel Michael to help them go to the light if they already haven’t and see if this helps.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan October 16, 2015, 1:06 pm

    Hi Leslie,

    You can start by reading about mediumship, meditating, and finding a group to join to study and learn about your abilities. Sageing does nothing to cross a spirit. It only lifts the vibration of the energy in general. There is nothing to be afraid of. The more you learn about your skills, the spirit world and what to do in certain situations, the less afraid you will become.


  • Keyla Jones October 16, 2015, 1:40 pm

    Dear Selina,
    I remember being half asleep half awake and I remember hearing my sister crying as she was speaking with a guy named Andy the more I came to consciousness the less I heard them speaking and when I was fully awake I looked around the house there was no tvs on everyone was asleep including my sister I thought it could of been my phone since it was laying right next to my head but it wasn’t wen my sister finally woke up I asked her who Andy was she gave me this wild crazy look and asked me why I told what happened and she told me that it was her youngest daughter’s dad he has nothing to do with them and I never knew who he was let alone his name hence the crazy look on her face wen I asked I was just wondering what it means what am I?? The older I get the more my ability to see and hear things that are unexplainable get stronger my dreams sometimes become reality does this make me some sort of a medium???

  • Natalie October 19, 2015, 3:45 pm

    It happens to me too, but just sometimes. When I’m half asleep I can hear some voices speaking something on my or some different language. I hear it really loud and clear and sometimes I just freak out because it’s too noisy and odd. Can you tell me why is this happening? My friend told that I’m hearing good or bad ghost that wants me to help them to come in our world. I don’t really think that I’m hearing ghost who need help, but I’m a little suspicious…

  • Selina Khan October 21, 2015, 1:05 pm

    Hi Natalie,

    It doesn’t feel like ghosts who need help. Most likely you are tapping into other layers of dimensions and frequencies when your abilities are more open due to your relaxed state falling asleep. Yes, it can be very odd and sometimes noisy! LOL!

    Thanks for you comment,

  • Selina Khan October 21, 2015, 1:09 pm

    Hi Keyla,

    Some people are able to connect with spirits of people (either still alive or passed on) in the astral realm while they are sleeping. Mostly, we don’t remember these types of experiences. Sometimes we do when are closer to the wake state as some of it filters into the conscious mind.

    It sounds like this is what is happening to you. Also, you are having some premonitions through your dream state. You have some abilities that seem to be very natural to you and strong. To develop mediumship abilities during your wake state, you would need to learn and practice.

    All the best,

  • Seth October 22, 2015, 9:02 pm

    Over the years i have been on the verge of fallig asleep and wake completely instantly because i hear a woman’s voice that ive never heard before whisper my name and no one is there, what does it mean? The most recent time was 2 months ago

  • Seth October 22, 2015, 9:03 pm

    Also why does it happen

  • Lola October 26, 2015, 12:17 pm

    Hello Selina,

    I just had my first experience a couple days ago and heard a woman whispering in my ear. I believe it was in the early morning sometime after 1am (when I went to use the restroom). She seems playful and mischievous is the impression I got and said ‘hey guess what’. I was trying to sleep and I was groggy and went back to sleep since I was so tired. I rarely sleep straight through the night anymore. I sweat a lot at night but that’s another story. My question is how do I know if it was a spirit or angel or something else!? Why ask me such a silly question. And yes it freaked me out! Thank you very much for your input on the matter.

  • Selina Khan October 26, 2015, 7:02 pm

    Hi Lola,

    She feels like a really nice and playful spirit! I don’t get her as mischievous in a mean way. I feel she was taking advantage of the groggy state you were in as it was easier for her to communicate to you. A spirit feels different than other beings like angels, guides and entities. It is easier to learn to differentiate their energy by meditating and connecting that way, rather than trying to figure it out from random experiences, although you will learn there too. If you want to try, get into a calm state, breathe and relax, close your eyes and ask for each of these beings from light and love – a spirit connected to you, one of your spirit guides, and an angel. Then you pay close attention to the differences you see, feel and hear.

    As for why a silly question? I think you only heard part of the message. I keep feeling that there was something nice she was going to share with you afterward.

    Thanks for reading the blog! Take care,

  • Selina Khan October 26, 2015, 7:04 pm

    Hi Seth,

    Likely a spirit that works with you or a guide. It’s not uncommon for spirit to contact us by saying our names. In fact, this was the first thing I heard with my physical ears when I was exploring my own spiritual gifts. I heard my name as if someone was in the room with me! If you like, you can intend and speak (out loud or in your head) to this woman that you got she wants your attention, and if there is something else she wants to share.


  • Selina Khan October 26, 2015, 7:09 pm

    You are a spiritual being. There are shifts happening on this planet in the energy and it is helping us to open up. Some of us are opening more quickly than others, and so your psychic abilities will also sharpen allowing you to tap into things you couldn’t perceive before. Also, seems this spirit knows you can hear and keeps trying to let you know of her presence.


  • Caroline October 27, 2015, 9:32 am

    Hey Ms. Selina I need your help,
    I have struggled with sleep paralysis for as long as I can remember. I have found ways to fight this condition by sleeping on my side rather than in supine position. I’ve been doing this for a few months and they don’t come as frequently but I’ve been feeling very restless.

    Anywho the other night I had set my alarm made sure I was on my side and fell asleep. I was awoken because I heard my alarm go off and in the state of being in between being awake and sleep right I heard a voice whisper in my ear to tell my roommate to relay a very very very disturbing message. I didn’t think twice about this things instructions and actually got up to tell her. I was actually contemplating to even wake her up, like I wasn’t thinking how this information would affect her just that I needed to tell her. But as I looked down on her, about to wake her up, I was like,”what am I doing what time is it??” I went back to my bed and saw that it was only 1:30am and my alarm was set for 6:45am. How is this possible? What was the voice? Will the scary message come true? Why me?

  • Lola October 27, 2015, 11:21 am

    Thank you so much for your response Selina. I want to clarify your advice. So get into a meditative like state and then ask for presence of the spirit that tried to communicate with me, my spirit guide, and an angel? Ask for the presence of all these entities from light and love and then try to differentiate how they are different in how they feel and are heard?
    I want to mention that the past few months I have been seeing a lot of repeating numbers like 111, 333, but mostly 444. This makes me wonder if this was a prelude to this experience I had. At the same time I also just moved into a new home couple months ago and not sure if it’s relevant. Furthermore, the past year I’ve been listening to meditative chakra clearing music when going to sleeping so I wonder if this contributed to the event. Can I get your thoughts on this type of music? Thank you again Selina, I am so glad for this forum!

  • james October 27, 2015, 12:20 pm

    hi selina what it is my 9 year old girl has come to me and told me when she goes to bed and theres no one else there that she can heer a ladys voice calling her name telling her to come here repetadly calling her and when she turns round theres no one there . and she has said some times when she tries to get up she feels stuck to the bed like she is being held down .. and thats why she has never told us because she thinks that she is listening and she wont be happy … sounds weird but i beleave her and was wondering if you could give me abit more nolige on what it cud be thanks .

  • Selina Khan October 29, 2015, 12:41 pm

    Hi Caroline,

    Thanks for reading the blog. Spirits from the light who resonate with love and your highest good will not give you scary horrible messages. Now sometimes, they will come and give us warnings or other messages that we may react to as we don’t understand it or we are afraid of change. But even so, there is a difference in the feel of the spirit and the message including how it’s given.

    Because you might not be able to tell the difference, let me give you something to try. Ask the Universe/God/Angels/Spirit Guides to filter any messages you receive so that you only receive genuine messages from the light and see what happens. Do this before you go to sleep.

    Also, if the same voice comes, don’t be afraid to challenge it. Treat that voice just like a stranger on the street that comes up to you and wants to talk to you. You would listen but you would ask questions, right? You would trust your gut as to if the person giving the message was manipulating you or was really genuine. Don’t get sucked into the message. Check out the source of it first. If you don’t know how to do this or aren’t confident enough, then stick with my suggestion above.

    I hope this helps you.

    Hi Lola,

    Yes you have it right. Repeating numbers are common for those who are waking up and who are in the flow. It signifies your spiritual opening, and when you are vibrating in alignment with source.

    Meditation music can be really relaxing. The chakra clearing music may be shifting your vibes so that you it is making your more open and perceptive. As your chakras clear, they function better and you may find you perceive more on the spiritual planes.

    Take care,

    Hi James,

    Most likely a spirit in the house that needs to be crossed over. Children are easier to reach because they are naturally more open. You can find a medium to clear your house for you. You can also tell your 9 year old to tell this woman to stop bothering her, to call in Archangel Michael every night to put lights of protection around her so she can sleep uninterrupted.

    Try it and see if it helps.

    Hi Selina,

    Since a very stressful period a few years ago, it seems I have become more sensitive for experiencing night terrors. One time, the night terror was accompanied by seeing the face of an angry young man while sleeping over in another house. This creeped me quite out, after hearing someone else in that house regularly sees faces in the night. Also, sometimes when I fall asleep, it feels as if a warm and soothing presence is around. The last few weeks I experienced some dreams that were quite puzzling. One night, my partner was at a bar with some friends. I was home alone and went already to bed. However, I suddenly woke up with an urgent feeling that something happened. Only a few minutes later my partner arrived home. He was alright, but he did see an accident happening while biking back home. A few days later, I woke up in the night, had a little chat with my partner, and when turning around to go back to sleep I heard a children’s voice saying the word ‘eight’. Then yesterday, I had a dream where suddenly an angry and it seems confused entity rapidly approached and ‘engulfed’ me. After waking up, I immediately called my partner who was celebrating Halloween in a bar. He was quite upset, as just a few minutes ago someone he vaguely knew fell to the ground, and died. Does this mean anything, or is it just weird coincidence? And what could the children’s voice imply?

  • cb November 2, 2015, 10:27 am

    I work third shift so I sleep during the day. I awoke to a male voice saying grandma. I scared me half to death. My heart was racing and I had a hard time falling back to sleep,because I was waiting to hear something about my grandmother. I was worried for them. I told my fiancé about it and he said it’s nothing. Well that night at work my friends uncle and grandmother passed within an hour of each other. What’s up with that? Was I supposed to warn her. And how was I supposed to know who? I’m just confused. I’ve kinda always knew when things were going to happen to my family, but no one else’s.

  • Selina Khan November 2, 2015, 12:15 pm

    Hi Attje,

    I believe there is no such thing as coincidence. You may be picking up on some of your partner’s emotions energetically for some of this. The child’s voice sounds neutral and I wouldn’t worry to much about that. It’s more likely that was you open to that energy and I believe it signifies a time – like and age, or number of years.

    Know that you are stronger than anything out there and ask for God/your Higher Self/Angels/Spirit Guides/Family in Spirit (any of these that draws you) to help surround you and your partner with love and light while you sleep so that only that for your highest good reaches you. Do this regularly and see if you have any more of these entity type dreams.


  • Selina Khan November 2, 2015, 12:19 pm

    Hi cb,

    No you weren’t supposed to warn her. If spirit wanted that to happen, they would have come through in a way that was clearer and more persistent and if you hadn’t acted on it, they would have found another way to intervene.

    Sometimes we tap into things because of our abilities. Other times, we are given a heads up to help us prepare for certain events. Sorry the voice scared you. A sudden voice when you aren’t expecting it can be jarring. Spirit was not trying to frighten you.

    Take care,

  • Kelly November 3, 2015, 11:23 am

    Hi Selina,

    Could you pls help? I’ve started meditation lately and today while laying down I felt like I was dozing off and suddenly I saw a sky with clouds and then I started hearing voices in my left ear.. My right ear I could hear the tv but the left ear i could hear voices that sounded like many but I’m not sure.. It felt really strange and I’m not sure what was going on ? Please help

  • Amy November 5, 2015, 7:18 am


    I’m going to write and essay but this happened recently and I just need to figure out stuff because I genuinely want to astral project. I was over at my eldest sisters house to babysit her kid. When it was time for his morning nap, I took a nap as well because I was sleep deprived and then crashed on her couch. Anyway, I had a dream, I knew I was napping but I was awake and could feel my body tingle, which meant I was experiencing some form of sleep paralysis or I was just lucid dreaming. When I finally came to the realisation that I was in some form of sleep paralysis it was very different to my previous SP experiences, usually when I have SP, it’s always pitch black , pins and needles all over my body, I hear white noise, my heart races and I go panic mode. This time I could feel the pins and needles all over my body, but I could see my surroundings, everything was so vivid and bright faint white noise that would come and go and then I heard voices. It was of children’s laughter and the foot patters on the floorboards and usually, in reality I can hear the neighbours walking loudly, but this time I felt that it was inside the house, I just had this gut feeling. I didn’t mind so much about the laughter but it stopped, though there was something in the room or distantly in the house saying something. She kept repeating it from time to time , I now can’t recall what she said now, but it wasn’t threatening or anything, it was just random, it’ll stop and the same voice and same sentence would become audible, it was like to my ear, but I knew it was distantly away. After I decided that I wouldn’t wuss out, I attempted to go out of my body, it took a while, though my entire body was tingling everytime parts of my astral self was separating from body, but this time I couldn’t sit up, and I somehow got out of my body and I heard a complete popping sound, and I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t know what feel. I’ve read stories that you can see your body when you astral project and I tried looking back to the couch, but I couldn’t see my body at all, but I could feel my body in the room, because whenever I thought about my body, my body would tingle.
    After not successfully seeing myself napping I decided to go visit my nephews room, I saw the door, and I thought of entering it, but it took it’s time, instead of actually walking to the room, the door opened by itself and I just popped into the room. I felt like I was blinking into existance every time I tried to walk and moving wasn’t fluid, it felt slow yet fast. The sensation was so strange, it’s like every action I was doing, my arms and legs would tingle whenever I tried to walk. What really startled me was my nephews room, it felt like my nephews room, but there were changes and the blinds were open and there was new furniture but it felt pleasant. I see my niece with him, that really puzzled me, but I knew it wasn’t her because she was in school and then there was a red skinned man (by that ,his skin colour reminded me of Dr Zoidberg from Futurama) who was more an anthromorphic humanoid bull, bit his face was human and he had a nose ring , and he was entertaining the children, but he had no voice, he spoke through speech bubbles and visual imagery. They all saw me suddenly there, the kids ignored me and entertained themselves but the guy looked at me blankly for a while, he didn’t look threatening, but I didn’t trust him, so I outright asked him ” Are you evil? What is your true form? Show me your true form?” . It seemed like I annoyed him/offended him because he shook his head like a child, and his nose started to change to a faint smokey colour and he gave me this look like he was upset. I then backed away, with my arms up. Then he ignored me and returned to play to the children. Then it got weird, all of a sudden we all blinked out and popped outside in the open space kitchen/entertainment area of the house, and he was playing with him. I found it odd and I could hear my phone alarm ringing and my real nephew playing with his puppets in his cot. So, I just thought ‘body’ and I was back in my body in a blink.

    I woke up, and turned off the alarm, after that, I just stayed laying on the couch but I felt really tired and just rested my eyes for a few minutes, and I was consciously aware I was resting my eyes, but when I tried to open them, I felt a little blinded, I was walking like I had the blanked and my robe cover one side of my eye, and I realised how hard it was for me to walk, and I was in that state again, I could only get up and walk a few steps, and then I told myself to wake up, and then I’d think I had actually woken up, but then it’ll happen again, and it repeated 3 times until I finally woke up. Then I realised when I opened my eyes, the part of my robe hood and the doona blanket was over my head and the right side was drooping down my right cheek.

    I don’t know what it means. I am not even sure if I actually astral projected or it’s just me lucid dreaming, but I felt something, and that anthromorphic bull man, I didn’t control that aspect, he was there, I could see his emotions and feel his emotions when I asked questions, I new there was some presence in the room but I felt it was a questionable one because I felt cautious about something being present. But he didn’t scare me, because I wasn’t scared to question the guy, and he was entertaining the chidren. What creeped me out was the kid repeating the same line from time to time. It was the voice, that a voice that didn’t come from this time. I’d hear that voice repeat the sentence in my nephews room and in the kitchen with the kids and that anthromorphic bullman.

  • Selina Khan November 5, 2015, 2:09 pm

    Hi Kelly,

    Sounds like you were either seeing clairvoyantly (psychic seeing) and your picked up some voices through your clairaudience (psychic hearing) or, you popped out of your body and was both aware of the physical and your spirit self. Usually when people psychically hear, it’s one ear only. If you want to stay in your body when you meditate, try sitting instead of laying down so you don’t go into such a relaxed state. That way you’ll still maintain some control. You can also try grounding your energy at the beginning of your meditation. There is a grounding meditation on this website in the store if you want to have something that guides you. It’s called Reaching Heaven and Earth.


  • jessica November 5, 2015, 4:52 pm

Someone answer me please…

  • Selina Khan November 11, 2015, 3:53 pm

    Hi Jessica,

    Sounds like you have some spirit activity going on and you are very sensitive to it. My feeling is you may want to do two things. First is to learn about your own energy system and practice closing and opening your chakras. I feel you are too open at times and partially closing (not completely) may help. Second, you may want to read a new blog I’m just going to post on what to do about hearing voices when falling asleep. There are some tips in there for you.

    You may also choose to get your house cleared as well. However, I feel that this is not the last of your intuitive abilities that will show itself and learning about your abilities will help you understand them so you aren’t so scared. There are bigger spiritual reasons for everything and perhaps this is so can explore deeper into your spirituality, your true divine essence and the world that is around you.

    All the best,

  • Lola November 17, 2015, 5:37 pm

    Hello Selina again,
    Thank you for your responses to my previous comments as it was very helpful. I am back again with another question. 🙂
    I read your article above again and I realised part of the reason why I access the spirit realm easily is because I breath deeply (similar to what you did) before I go to bed listening to meditation music. I don’t want to do this on purpose. I resist hearing the spirit world because it freaks me out. Some of the things I heard over the year was a really loud banging sound on the door and thought someone was trying to get into my house. I once heard this constant pounding of a hammer hitting another piece of metal. Then a month ago I heard a lady asking me hey guess what which I told you about. I once heard voices of like a hundred people all talk at the same time and it’s so loud. Last night I heard the sound of blocks of wood being crush and it’s repetitive which can be annoying. I hear these things usually when I am falling asleep and occasional waking up. I am learning to accept that I can access this easily. I don’t want to be afraid of it anymore, and I don’t want to fight this anymore either. But my question for you is what is the benefit, for lack of a better word, of having access to the spirit realm? It seems as though you enjoy having this connection and why is that when most people are afraid of it.
    Thank you Selina for reading and for your time.

  • Selina Khan November 18, 2015, 4:41 pm

    Hi Lola,

    Most of us are afraid of what we don’t understand. When I was 15, I saw my first full figured spirit apparition. I was scared! I remember a girl in class had just bought some oracle cards – the celtic tree oracle. She did a reading for me and told me that figure was a teacher.

    I’m not afraid because I’ve had many, many experiences with spirit. I know that I am strong and that light is stronger than dark. I’ve had spirits/entities come that were so full of light and love I wanted to sit there in their energy forever. Then I’ve had other not so nice spirit experiences. I have learned not to give them my power and know that I have those I can call on for help (Angels, Spirit Guides, Family in Spirit).

    The benefits are numerous:

    I don’t feel that I am alone
    It gives me confirmation that there is more to this life than what I can see and that I am more than my 5 senses
    It gives me confirmation that life continues after death
    I can get guidance from those whom I choose to connect to in this way
    It gives me a way to help others

    Those are off the top of my head, but there are more reasons. It’s really easy to be startled by a spirit because you aren’t used to them showing up. You may believe all the hollywood and horror fiction out there. Even reality shows are not really real. All that stuff on TV and in the movies doesn’t give you a proper idea of the spirit world. It’s meant to keep you scared.

    Anyway, that’s my experience of it. Others will come to it in their own way and their own time. I truly believe that this is part of our natural state and I see it emerging more and more as the energies on the earth keep shifting.

    Take care Lola!

  • amber November 25, 2015, 1:39 pm

    Hi, so I’m used to seeing blurs of thing and I can always feel if something is around and it never really bothered me. In my bedroom I’ve always felt uneasy but always just ignored it…a few months ago me and my sister in law were in my room and my parents in the living room on the other side of the house..we heard a mans voice asking if we were there …i thought it was my dad until he was sitting on the couch he said he didn’t go back there…a few nights ago I wake up in the middle of the night in still awake but slowly closing my eyes about the time my eyes closed I hear a hateful mans voice saying get up get up get up in a mean voice..it also sounded like my dad I jumped up and screamed huh no one was there and mom said she heard me scream and said my dad was sound asleep..this really scared me what is happening???

  • Katie November 29, 2015, 4:33 pm

    I have for a while now heard sometimes voices I don’t recognize while falling asleep. They often sound very similar to family members that have passed on. Sometimes complete stranger voices. I’ve also experienced the mind game where I think I hear my parents calling me and no one is home as well so it’s hard to distinguish between what is just my mind and what isn’t. Last night however twice while I was trying to fall asleep I heard very heavy breathing almost like it was beside me on the bed. I ended up getting really scared and praying to God that he help me have a peaceful sleep because whatever that was had scared me really badly. After that it stopped. I had a very bad day that day my visiting family had just left and then I had done something that made someone mad and I suffer from depression so I got into a very bad mental state the rest of the day. I do sometimes suffer from demonic nightmares where I’m always saved by my faith but last night that just scared me really badly. I’m not sure what it was if it was good or bad. I’m half hoping it may have just been my grandfather coming to check on me who passed away but I can’t tell.

  • Linda December 1, 2015, 4:19 pm

    Please help me, I was awakened last night with an intense tingling feeling in my upper back. It was not painful at all but really intense and with a bit of pressure, nothing like I have ever experienced before. At the same time I heard a loud sort of deep growling in my head. I wasn’t scared, I tried to listen and in my head I said ‘I can’t hear what you are saying’ and I repeated that twice. Then I felt uneasy and I said in my head ‘I only want to talk to you if you are from love and light.’ The tingling feeling was still going but the growling noise stopped. I then recited the Lords Prayer in case this was something undesirable. I can’t say to anyone because people will think I am mad but I wasn’t asleep, I didn’t dare open my eyes but I talked in my head thinking through what I was saying. I haven’t stopped thinking about it all day and now it is evening and I am afraid to sleep. Can anybody tell me what it could have been, I live alone, it can’t hurt me can it? I do read a lot about spirit guides, sometimes I have just known things but not all the time. I was awakened about a year ago, three night in a row, by three taps on my left shoulder and twice my name was called. I don’t understand what is going on.

  • Amber P December 1, 2015, 5:46 pm

    Please help me figure out what’s going on in my house. I cant help but feel that my house is swarmed with spirits. My parents do not believe in such things and the only person I can talk to is my boyfriend, who might think I’m going crazy. Which I think I am and hopefully this will help explain what’s been going on. We moved into our 1929 house about four years ago. As soon as I stepped foot through the door I felt the house had a story because I felt it in my bones, if that makes any sense. The people who lived here before us only stayed for 2 months, and our realtor had explained that the husband received a job offer in Boston, which is a far daily route from Springfield. But I can’t help but feel that they had left the house in a hurry. Before we removed the carpet in the living room, there was a huge red stain hidden under a coffee table. My mom insisted that it was wine, but I don’t know. I had moved out of my parents house for a year and just recently moved back in June. My room had been stolen from me by my youngest sister, so I had moved into the farthest room in our basement where I now am currently sleeping in every night. My younger sister Victoria stays in the room right next to me with her boyfriend. Victoria one morning had asked my mom where I was, she told her I was in school which I was. She told my mom she heard a girl talking in my room where my boyfriend was sleeping. Anthony has heard footsteps from my room, loud footsteps, and muffled screams. Our pipes always made random loud noises in the basement, but now it seems that they get louder and louder and once noticed, dissipates. I got locked out of my room one day also. Last week, I was in my kitchen with my boyfriend eating around midnight. Everything was fine but then I started to see black, I got dizzy, and my head felt hot, I thought I was dying or having a heartattack and I gasped and reached out for my boyfriend who caught me. I told him I couldn’t see anything and started hyperventilating. It was like I was there but it wasn’t really happening. I sat on the couch and took a few deep breaths and started to feel semi-normal again. I was really shaken up and didn’t want my boyfriend to think I was pulling some theatrical stunt. But when I told him what was happening and how it felt he said that happened to him a few weeks ago when I was in the shower upstairs and he was right in the kitchen as well. Then last night, I had stayed up until 3 writing my final paper. When we finished, we laid down and tried to sleep after taking adderal to write the papers. I started to drift off but then heard my name as clear as day and felt it in my ear. I clenched my boyfriends arm as hard as I could to wake him up without saying anything. But he was awake and said no one had came into the room. I started freaking out and kept telling him over and over I felt it I felt it. He held me as I was in shock for about twenty minutes then I told him to shut the light off. I kept my eyes open and kept seeing white lights around my room then red dots that looked like eyes. I felt like whatever it was, was hovering over me the entire night. I felt breathing on me and could literally feel eyes hard and focused on me. My boyfriend started to fall asleep and i started to hear noises throughout the entire basement. Ruffling, muffled screams, grunting, but they were all faint. I don’t know what to do anymore i no longer feel comfortable in my home and when I sleep I wake up exhausted no matter how many hours I slept. I don’t think the spirit who called my name last night was evil, but I do feel like my house has a lot of angry spirits. Please help me explain what’s going on. My mom will not let me contact our realtor because she doesn’t believe in “hocus pocus.” Please get back to me. Preferably before I have to sleep in my room tonight.
    Thank you – Amber

  • brittany December 3, 2015, 2:25 pm

    Ok so my question is this…..can there be evil beings who try to make themselves known? My boyfriend is clairaudient and he has bad dreams every night about people dying but he says its him doing the killing only its not him if that makes any sense. It gets so bad he’s woken up crying and their are times when we are getting ready to fall asleep and he jumps back and says its like someone just “boomed” him like it pushed him back.. Its affecting his sleep and he suffers from sleep apneia and says it gets so bad he has a hard time differentiating between his dreams and reality and what has happened and what was a dream what is wrong with him and is there anything to do to help him…he hears astral music and booms and can hear voices and has piercing sounds in his ears that hurt his head and can tell something bad is going to happen everything that is mentioned with Clair audience he has and the only thing he has trouble with is his dreams…please help I don’t know what to do to help him.

  • Selina Khan December 3, 2015, 5:45 pm

    Hi Linda,

    Sounds like you are doing the right things. Speaking to it, asking it to make itself clear, and if it isn’t from the light, to send it off. The Lords Prayer can help as can other types of prayers. It can be difficult to determine if the spirit is trying to get your attention or is trying to scare you if you aren’t used to getting past your conditioned fear of being afraid of something unknown. If you can’t tell, I suggest that you ask God or your Spirit Guides, or someone else you feel comfortable calling on (a family member in spirit or Archangel Michael) to only allow this spirit to come through if it’s for your highest good and if it is, to make sure that the message or lesson be heard or learned quickly, easily, with the least amount of fear involved.

    Most spirits cannot or will not cause you harm. If it’s a mischievous spirit they usually try to scare you. Sometimes they can cause slight discomfort by their energy. I’ve had spirits that feel oppressive energetically, or kick the bed. The kicking of the bed is just annoying and I tell them to quit it, or I’ll say – okay I know you are there! Usually after that it stops.

    Try not to be afraid. If you are having trouble falling asleep because of fear, you can say a prayer of protection and to be surrounded by light. Visualizing this can also help.

    Hope you sleep well! Take care,


  • Selina Khan December 3, 2015, 5:49 pm

    Hi Amber,

    Sounds like you have some spirit activity in the house from spirits that aren’t settled in the light. I’ll give you something to try, otherwise you’ll have to find a medium in the area that can cleanse the house properly and cross the spirits.

    Go through the house and say (you can do this in your mind) Archangel Michael, Spirit Guides of those spirits still not in the light and residing in this house, please show those here the light to the other side and show them the love and grace that is waiting for them there. Show them the people who love them that are waiting for them to join them in the light. Help them to choose to go through the light to their proper home. Thank you.

    If you are sensitive to energy, you may feel a shift in the atmosphere when it’s done. See what happens and if things still continue, you may need to call in professional help.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan December 3, 2015, 5:55 pm

    Hi Brittany,

    Yes there are entities and spirits in the world that are not so nice. They can try to affect people. I think all things happen for a reason. I believe that partially it’s to make us think about WHY this is happening. It may be to help teach us that we are more powerful than we believe and to stand in that power by not backing down and becoming afraid or weak. It may be to strengthen our faith, or to learn about the true nature of the universe – both light and dark.

    As this seems to be a rather intense case, you can read some of the comments I’ve posted to others to see how to do psychic protection, and to ask Archangel Michael or another Higher Being of light to assist. In addition to this, I suggest lifting the energy by smudging it with white sage and then temporarily putting a dish of salt under the bed. Leave it there for a few days and then change it. Throw the salt out in the garbage when you are done. Try this for a couple of weeks and see if it helps. Salt absorbs negativity. Smudging changes energy to a lighter vibration. Neither one will cross a spirit to the other side or send it away. However, it may help to calm the energy in general so he can sleep better and the entity may not like the higher vibrations.

    In the end, if these things don’t work, find a professional medium who clears houses to come and take of it for you.


  • Linda December 4, 2015, 2:40 pm

    Hi Selina
    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to reply, very much appreciated. Nothing has happened since but I know this was not a dream because I was awake and thinking. I will take all of your advice and you have very much put my mind at rest. Thanks again.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Have a look at some of the other comments and replies. Many people have asked this question and I’ve given them tips as to how to deal with it. You can try the same – prayers of protection, talking to them, asking for help from your spirit guides, and getting a medium to come and clear your house.

    All the best,

  • Shubi December 11, 2015, 7:59 am

    Hi Selina,
    I want to share a few experiences and know what you feel about them. I am a post graduate student and try to meditate few times when I feel too much pressure building on me. This happened today as well while I was taking a break from my studies. I tried to relax by closing my eyes and focusing on my breaths. Suddenly I felt a pressure build between my eyebrows and I tried to prolong my state. To my surprise I heard a male voice laughing. This was a voice I do not happen to recognize and there wasn’t any male present around me.
    I am scared as I don’t know who was it
    Can you guide?

    Hi Shubi,

    The pressure between your eyebrows is your third eye starting to open up. It’s a common result of meditation for many people. The male voice laughing is your clairaudience – your psychic hearing. The first few times I heard out loud with my ears it was my name (male voice) and then laughing and my mother’s name (she is in spirit), also a male voice. Feels like the spirit has a good vibe and he was just contacting you when you happened to be open at that time.

    Take care,

    Hi i been having things happen to me that sometimes scare me at night. In the middle of night so it seems the time line someone will yell my name in my ear real loud. It happens alot but last night there was a scream kinda like a scream of bloodly murder! It scared me but as it woke me my ear was ringing really bad and hurt like someone just yelled in it. This happens alot where someone wakes me and theres no one there. Last night when i opened my eyes it looked like a black cloud over me. When awake i could be walking out side in the house any where ill be pushed. A push where one time i almost hit my head on the table in front of me because i was resting on my knees wrapping gifts other times walking down the road but one time i got pushed while starting to cross a set of train tracks that run thu the middle of my town. Im starting to think something is trying to hurt me. I’ll sometimes hear a mans voice say things like hi or i have to use the bathroom bad.
    I feel like im going crazy! What could this be?

    Hi Selina,
    I have had 4 clear experiences of voices.
    First time was during what I can only describe as a near death experience after a car accident, where a voice gave me a choice to “let go” or “stay”, never using the words die or live. At one point the voice said if I chose to stay, “You will endure a period of great suffering, the likes of which I have never experienced or can imagine. But after the period of great suffering is over, everything will be ok.” Well, I chose to “stay” and suffer I did, just as described, but afterwards everything was pretty much ok, as the voice said it would be.

    Another time, when I was having a hard time deciding on a new job opportunity, I heard, “Where most people make two kinds of decisions, good and bad, you also make two kinds, but rather good and better.” After hearing it I chose to take the job that intellectually didn’t add up, but posed more of a challenge despite being risky. It changed my life.

    Another time on a highway once known as the deadliest in the US, I heard, clearly, “Warning! Danger ahead!” so I slowed down. After 5-7 minutes I came around a mountain curve and safely drove over 15 or so 8 foot 2x4s strewn across my lane. If I was going faster, I could have slid into oncoming traffic.

    Then years later after having some experience where dead people were connecting with me in various ways, my best friend’s good friend passed in her rental out back. As I walked through the deceased’s space as all her friends were there cleaning up her belongings, I tried to connect with her. I did and heard, “Thank everyone for all the jokes and laughter.” At first I was too mortified to tell any of her friends this. But later, I found out that 12 or so dear friends held vigil over her body for 48 hours according to Sufi tradition, and at one point people were telling jokes to her corpse and were laughing with each other.

    Not sure why, but I just googled “what does it mean when you hear voices with warnings” and found your website. After reading some stories I felt compelled to share mine. Thanks for the forum!

  • Selina Khan December 16, 2015, 1:53 pm

    Hi Sky,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us! It’s nice to read how spirit helps us in our lives. Thanks for sharing!

    All the best,

  • Angela December 16, 2015, 3:08 pm

    Not sure what this could mean…But I never really believed in ghosts or spirits…I always thought the idea of it was cool, until it started happening to me. One night I prayed to God wanting to know if my dead sister was alright and how I wished I could talk to her, then a few days after I would hear a little girl calling out to me almost everyday. I had grown used to it and no longer bothered me until I would start hearing an angry man calling out to me as well sometimes even during my sleep and the way he’d do it wasn’t pleasant at all. Then I started having these dreams of ghosts in the new houses we’d moved to and on the third house a ghost wrote “I’ll kill you” Then after moving to the third house these weird events would start happening, but the worst was when I woke up to a man saying “boo” in my ear. After that I can no longer sleep by myself.

  • Selina Khan December 18, 2015, 3:12 pm

    Hi Marco,

    I’m so sorry that you are feeling overwhelmed and lost right now. I wish I could guide you however I can’t give you what you need through a blog response. A healing and spiritual journey is not usually an instant answer or a short period of time. But it is possible to heal and find meaning and understanding in our experiences as we continue along our path. Each level of growth and understanding will happen in it’s own time.

    I suggest you learn what can about astral travel, psychic protection, grounding and clearing your energy, understanding spiritual principles, and how to empower yourself through positive self belief so you don’t give your power to others. You can learn about these things from books, blogs, and if you have teachers around you.

    Here are some books to start you off:

    You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay
    Any Ted Andrews book on Astral Travel, Psychic Self-Defence

    You may also want to talk to a therapist regarding your emotions and thoughts so that you can learn how to shift these and get some support for your mom’s death. Although it was 6 years ago, there may still be some insights a therapist can help you with.

    I wish you all the best,

  • Rachel December 20, 2015, 7:11 am

    While I fall asleep, often i have image s going through my head like a slide show. People, places, or just objects that sometimes turn into something else. Sometimes they arent anything but lights, lines, orb like floaties. Also but much more rare the people or person images seem to go together like a picture story usuasly about 3 slides long. I normly dont get scared well i can say that now cuz ive gotton used to it by now. Im 25, turning 26 next month. But anyways sometimes when i get kinda scared is it seems like the people ones notice me noticing them. It’s like they get excited and I get surprised, then its like they get frantic because its like my mind is going to the next thing and they don’t want to go yet and it’s like they try to hang on longer and they are trying so hard and its then that it kinda gets creepy and I’m scared so I try harder to go to next image which seems like a 4 sec battle of wills. Sometimes I hear things like someone or someoneS talking. But they are never loud enough for me to make out the conversation. Just a couple of times I hear singing and its the most beautiful song that isn’t words or words I know anyway and its not female its not male its just the most beautiful voice and there are no instruments their voice IS the instruments and song all at once.
    My strangest and most memorable dream-dream happend when I was 14 I think and I was sitting in the bathroom floor with this fuzzy looking little white creature. It would appear here and there and in and again in the next spot. But we were playing and talking as if we’ve always known each other. I can’t remember what we talked about but it seems like the whole time I set in the floor rolled around like a ball or something while we talked. And all of a sudden the norm convo changed and it asked me why I let dead people kiss me. And of course I was confused and wondered what it meant. I told it i dont. And it knodded its head as if to say look up. And when I did I saw my great grandmother rising up to a normal standing position as is she had just bent over and kissed my cheek. She never said anything and I never felt the need to say anything to her cuz even though she wasnt there until thst moment she just didn’t seem out of place. I told the little creature thing that “oh no its okay that’s my grandma” all it said was ok and it seemed like every thing was normal. for a few more seconds anyway because my mom woke me up. And as soon as I seen her, tears and red faced, all she could say to me was “Rachel, mom’s just, alittle earlier mom…” And I knew. She didn’t have to. Me and my great grand mother had a very close relationship, she and my great grandfather had raised me from 2months to 11years old. They WERE my parents she was my mom even though I had always know my mother and I always known she was my great grandma but still she was more she was my mom. The dream I know with every part of my existence that she was telling good bye. Every so often I still talk to her in half awake half asleep dreams that I don’t feel are dreams. Also went she comes to visit I have the sence other are with her, I can’t see them I just know their presence and who I believe it belongs to. Other weird dreams are people I don’t know and its like I’m not me im someone else if I’m even there to them at all and usually a big event seems to happen

  • Myra December 22, 2015, 12:30 pm

    Hi Selina
    Right before I woke up this morning the name Benjamin Semmens came into my head. I went back to sleep and I kept hearing it. It seemed important for me to remember. I don’t know anyone by that name. I know Benjamin means son of my right hand or strength. Could the last name Semmens be a word play for summons? Am I being told to summon my strength for something to come?

  • Selina Khan December 30, 2015, 10:59 am

    Hi Myra,

    Not likely. Ask that you be given a message if it’s important, otherwise, let it go. Not everything that you hear is meant as a message directly to you. It could be a spirit that knew you could hear at that moment and said his name. There are too many other reasons why you heard it to assume it means for you to be strong.

    Take care,

  • Deirdre December 31, 2015, 5:07 am

    Hi Selina
    I have been hearing running water daily before sleeping at night and when I am almost awake in the morning, for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I have jumped up a few times and rushed off to check taps and toilets and have eventually realized that it is not the plumbing. It sounds as if someone has opened a tap on the roof above my head. As soon as I leave my bedroom the water sound is gone, until I enter my bedroom again.
    I have been on a spiritual journey the last 2 years and have started reconnecting with gifts that I previously rejected. Since, I have reaffirmed my connection with the spiritual world I have been seeing the number 34 at least 3 times a day. Initially, I would check the time every day at 12:34. Now, whenever I check the time it seems to be 34 minutes past the hour. I haven’t been able to figure out either the water or the 34.
    Thank you,

  • Janice January 2, 2016, 5:39 pm

    I woke up this morning to a female gasping. Only my husband, myself, and my cat live here. How do I know if this was a spirit, or dream? A lady I worked with past away in December. I don’t know if it could be her or just another spirit (or what). I want to understand the meaning of this. It was kinda freaky to wake up to gasping. I called out to my husband, and he was in the washroom at the time, he was worried when I called out to him. I asked him if he gasped (just in case), and he said “no”.

  • Selina Khan January 6, 2016, 5:02 pm

    Hi Deirdre,

    First thing to do is to make sure the running water sound doesn’t have a rational explainable meaning. If it’s not the pipes, or sound travelling from some other person’s pipes that you are hearing, or some other explainable source of the sound, then we can look at the spiritual meaning of it. Even if it is pipes, there can be a message there too. Sometimes spirit gives us messages that are energetic, and other times uses our physical reality around us.

    Water represents emotions and reflections. It could be a message that is referring to going deeper within to look at emotions you may be experiencing right now.

    If you add 3 + 4 you get 7. 7 in numerology represents spiritual awakening, inner knowledge, going within spiritually.

    Another way to interpret seeing 34 is that it represents when you are in alignment or the flow. It could also be a sign that particular spirit is around, like a family member.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan January 6, 2016, 5:21 pm

    Hi Janice,

    There is a bit of difference between a dream and perceiving spirit. One is that spirit has a more vivid quality to it and it’s not unusual to hear just while in the almost awake or asleep state. I wouldn’t worry about it. I know it’s freaky when you aren’t used to it. Don’t jump to conclusions about it being a spirit that needs help or is trying to give you a dire message. Just take it for what it is and if it happens again, see if you get any more information about it.

    All the best,

  • Kerri January 8, 2016, 11:56 pm

    I have been experiencing a Spiritual awakening before Christmas…one night before drifting off to sleep I know I distinctly heard a voice whisper the word “Scotland” in my ear…2 weeks later my I received my first visit from my Spirit Guide in my dream…I showed my Guide a picture of a guy and asked her if he was going to be my future husband and she said “Yes”….does this mean I will soon be travelling to Scotland because the guy I showed my guide is in fact Scottish! How weird is that? I just hope I’m not going crazy at the moment!

  • Cathy January 9, 2016, 10:26 pm

    Recently I have gone to visit a medium as it was a gift from my sister. When the medium started the reading she said that she had to go outside before seeing me because her energy was slowly drained from her. How would this happen? As she continued to tell me more about myself she also told me that I have psychic abilities and are more powerful then her. Can psychics be at different levels with their gift, how can that be even if I am at the beginning? Psychic intuition has been with as for generations, my sister,mom and myself have specific abilities maybe that comes for our generation. I relate to all the experiences that individuals above had the only difference is that I can also see orbs in the early mornings. (I have seen it twice). I would love some advice on this as I do not understand it. Thank you so much for offering your advice.

  • Sheena January 10, 2016, 8:20 am

    Hi There,
    First of all id like to thankyou for sharing this piece with us, since i can remember ive always had vivid and colourful dreams, i can remember them for days an certain ones for years, a cpl of years ago i somehow predicted the melbourne cup race winner and having a baby a few years before i fell pregnant, also before going to sleep at night, i recall on more than a few occassions hearing whispers, i always thought i must be going crazy until i came across this, thankyou again for sharing, an if you have any feedback for me id be most appreciated ☺

  • Dave January 11, 2016, 11:26 am

    I was awaken last night by word spoken loudly saying the word “Roja” which means red. When I woke up I saw the room filled with a dim red light for a short period time before fading away. I was terrified and did not have a good feeling about this. When I finally went back to sleep I heard the word mentioned again in a dream coming out of my son’s mouth. I woke up again and began to pray until I was fell asleep again. Still trying to make sense of last night. Any thoughts?

  • Selina Khan January 11, 2016, 2:24 pm

    Hi Cathy,

    Did she say why her energy was drained? There are reasons why this could happen but without more details, I’m just guessing. I assume that she went outside to either clear herself or recharge.

    Yes we all are at different levels, some more open than others, some more experienced than others, some more aligned with the light than others. Perhaps you should have asked her what she meant by you are more powerful than her. As she gave you the reading, she would be able to explain what she meant. I really can’t speak for her.

    Abilities tend to run in families and often through one side. Your being able to see orbs is a sign that your clairvoyance is active. You can develop other skills if you like through learning and practice. And you can also strengthen the ones you have. The purpose of your gifts is to help you remember the truth of who you are. You can also use your gifts in practical ways everyday. It’s a normal part of our senses that some of us are reclaiming and integrating back into our understanding and way of living. It’s the way much of the rest of life communicates.

    Thank you for your comment. All the best,

  • Selina Khan January 11, 2016, 2:27 pm

    Hi Sheena,

    Sounds like you have some great dreams that are premonitions. You may be travelling forward in time in the astral state and seeing thing that haven’t happened yet in “real” time. Glad you enjoyed the blog!

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan January 11, 2016, 4:24 pm

    Hi Dave,

    Interesting experience. I would say that this is definitely spirit activity and not your fear taking over. Yes, I can feel the ominousness of the red energy when it appeared, but I don’t think it’s a “bad” spirit per se.

    So then the next thing would be – what does this mean? In this case, if this happened to me, I would look at two things. First I would clear and bless my place, put up some boundaries around it. You can do all this through visualizations and prayers seeing as you seem to be strong enough in mind and spirit to do this. See if this helps. The purpose would be to change the energy of the house to align more with the energy of ease. I suggest you do this around your family members too. When you feel you no longer need to continue, you can stop if you like. However, it might become part of your routine.

    Second I would look at trusting my feelings in the next month even more than usual. I feel this would be helpful because it almost feels like a bit of a message that says just be mindful of the energy of others around you. No reason to be afraid. Don’t jump to worst case scenarios here. If I was really concerned I’d message you privately. I just feel that it would be good for you to trust your intuition so that you can be more aware of the energy of the next few weeks and make choices that are aligned to what’s best for you. Sometimes awareness is key in understanding what a message is really all about.

    I do hope that this helps. All the best to you,

  • Valerie January 13, 2016, 8:27 pm

    Laying out in the afternoon sun catching some rays, my thoughts were wondering and I was drifiting off to sleep. As it often does I was pondering over two main sadness in my life 1) not being able to conceive a child and my unwillingness to accept that yet 2) how being childless separates me from most of the people where I live and how hard it is in this rural area to make friends if you don’t have kids in school or attend a church. A few moments past as I drift off and a lovely feminine voice whispers “there’s no one like you.” just as if I was being answered. It startled me awake and I lay there thinking, “that makes me sad that I am destined to be childless and no close friends, but I can accept that” and it made me feel special. But then I thought “well then what on earth is my purpose” so I lay there quite some time waiting for more…but nothing happened. I’ve tried several times to “hear” again, but to no avail. I want to hear I want to know who it was and why. Can’t wait to try your techniques ….any insight into my experience?

  • mybl January 15, 2016, 7:53 am

    Today when I wake up and go back to sleep again I heard a whisper voice, ” I will died” it said. My husband was sleep I nvm deeply next to me. Can be warning me about my husband?

  • Charlotte January 15, 2016, 2:49 pm

    Hi, whilst I’ve been in a relaxed state in between sleep I’ve heard several times someone in my ear. It sounds like a really low non human voice, not in English it’s like it has a strange vibration to it, sounds like an incantation or something. But before I saw a cloaked entity at the side if my bed with a blue ish transparence. i think they were praying for me, they were making sewing hand gestures, it’s like they were healing me or something. I wonder if maybe it’s my spirit guides talking? Apparently my spirit guide is the Egyptian god of the dead.

  • Selina Khan January 16, 2016, 9:42 pm

    Hi Valerie,

    You received what you needed and you heard the truth of it. Spirit told you plain and simply that you are absolutely, one hundred percent unique. You can’t be anything other than you which is a really good thing because without you this world would be incomplete.

    We all have the same purpose. Our purpose is to recognize and realign with our divine selves which is the same as “One” or “Higher Mind” or “Supreme Consciousness” or “God” or “the Universe”. It’s all the same. How we choose to express that in this lifetime is often mistaken for what gives us meaning and gives us our intrinsic worth. However, you were let in on a piece of wisdom – there is no need to compare or feel sad because of not having children. It makes you no less or more special as you are truly unique, and, if I might add, loved beyond your understanding.

    So loved, that one of your female guides came to audibly give you a message! Very nurturing and playful this guide.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan January 16, 2016, 9:58 pm

  • Selina Khan January 16, 2016, 10:00 pm

    Hi Charlotte,

    Yes it’s possible you were being healed or getting a blessing. This does happen. I once received an attunement in meditation from my guides. I could feel the energy racing through my body.


  • Jacqualine January 23, 2016, 8:01 am

    Please shed some light on these things what happen to me when I was around 7 my mother was away on holiday and we had not long moved into our new home and I was lying in bed and seen my mother walk past my bedroom door and into the bathroom I was calling for her and ran into the bathroom and no one was there a few days later my bother who was 6 woke up during the night and went to go into my mothers bedroom and there on the stairs facing him was he’s self they both looked at each other and the one on the stairs kept walking up the stairs as you can imagine my brother screamed and for a very long time would not sleep in he’s own room we moved not long after that as my mother was in bed one morning and was flung of the ceiling the walls and she believed us after that so we moved home I have always felt some one was there but never seen or heard any thing until my brother was tragically killed in 2002 he was 21 right after that one night as I was heading off to sleep I heard people talking like in a crowded room but could not make out any one voice it was happening every night I told a friend about it and they told me I should say one at a time so that night when I heard the voices I said in my mind one at a time and my brother said Jacqualine . I got such a shock a sat up shaking terrified it scared me to death I took he’s death really badly and that just made me worse after them days It often happened but just a lot of people talking I have never said one at a time again I don’t say anything I only say please leave me alone please stop scaring me I often forget to breath when I nod off to sleep and wake up in a panic a lot now a days the other night I was nodding off and I know it sounds silly but I could see through my eye lids some one sitting over me it felt like a man then it was gone in a flash it never felt like my brother I often feel strokes on my ear and often hear names and stuff I know this is a really long message to you but please shed some light for me many thanks Jacqualine

  • Selina Khan January 25, 2016, 6:26 pm

    Hi Jacqualine,

    I’m so sorry to hear about your brother’s tragic passing. It seems that you have had some experiences that have really scared you. Sometimes things are both a combination of the mind/emotions and also our psychic gifts. It can help to learn about both and try to work with both. So seeing a therapist or councellor to work through emotions might help. On the spiritual side, I can give you what I think may be going on with you. Often times the mind can influence how we perceive and interpret things, even if it is on the psychic side.

    Some of the things you have experienced, I have also experienced. I have “seen” through my eyelids while in a very relaxed state. A few of my other students have mentioned this as well. It can seem very odd. I believe that there are many layers of realities and that what we tend to see in our day to day life is just one. I also believe that it is possible to see parts of other layers when we are more receptive or have particular gifts. Most of the time these sorts of experiences happen without our intending them to.

    I have also seen what looks like someone I know standing beside me who disappears but they are alive and well somewhere else. Sometimes this happens when a spirit comes looking like someone else so as not to scare you, or it is possible for a person to be astral travelling and be perceived by someone who is experiencing clairvoyance (psychic seeing).

    You are already asking to be left alone. That’s fine. It helps if you feel strong and not afraid when you do this, but if you are too scared, you can also ask God, your spirit guides, angels, Archangel Michael (known for protection) and family members in spirit to put a light around you that will keep spirit activity out.

    You can learn different techniques to work with your chakras and psychic abilities if that interests you. Or you may be more interested in shutting it down. Either way, you’ll find some tips I’ve given other people who have commented on this blog, so you may want to read those and see what works for you.

    I hope this helps you. Many blessings,


  • Megan February 5, 2016, 5:56 pm

    Hi I’m 13 and this morning I woke up but then I wanted to go back to sleep and just as I went to sleep I heard a woman’s voice whispered in my ear saying ‘I’m confused’ and I immediately jumped up and looked around the room and no-one was there but when she whispered I got a vision of a woman who looked in about her 40’s she was brunette and long curly hair and a flowy white dress and I saw her whisper in my ear, it was like I was seeing 2 perspectives at the same time it was my perspective and almost someone watched her whisper in my ear’s perspective I got freaked out at first but then I realised it mint be something spiritual because my great nanna was like that 🙂

  • T. Doyle February 8, 2016, 2:52 pm

    Hope you can comment about this issue that I have been dealing with just in the last month really.

    I have woken up twice now, once just this morning, to a voice in my bedroom as I come awake from sleep. I don’t think I am paralyzed at all but not sure because like I said I had just woken up and know so because my eyes opened and it was at the same time there was a voice in the room with me but I was alone, well me and my Chihuahua who was asleep under the covers. He didn’t seem to notice anything but this morning he may have heard the voice but not sure.

    Anywho, the one time and first time it happened was only a few days ago. I woke up, opened my eyes to the sound of a louder man’s voice just like the person was in the room but I got the feeling he was talking to someone else, not me, but not sure. Just he feeling I got. I have no idea what he was saying cause I got so scared as I was waking up in my own bedroom and was supposed to be alone in there. I can’t say I was really scared but certainly alarmed I mean who wouldn’t be? Anywho it lasted about 10 seconds of him saying something just like he was standing in the room but no one was there.

    Then this morning it happened again, right when my eyes opened, but this time it was a female’s voice and it was softer but I am not sure if she was whispering or just talking softer. No idea what she said either as I am so startled to just open my eyes and be in a room with someone talking who isn’t supposed to be there.

    I am under a great deal of stress right now and have been for sometime and last night I did pray for help but not sure if I did the first time when I heard the man’s voice.

    I have also had the unusal experience of seeing UFOs in the last 4 years and I have never before and some are actually in the daytime too so I wonder about visitations too that some say happen, if you believe in such things, not sure I do or don’t but I do have an open mind to all kinds of things many reject, find it all interesting but am not obsessed with any of it, just recent experiences with the unusual is why I mention it.

    Any ideas of what this could be? Oh I just remembered something. About 24 years ago I nearly died in cancer treatment and I actually had a full healing and at that time I heard a voice but that one was in me and it said ‘yes this is a healing straight from God and the cancer will never come back’. The voice was strong and male but I wasn’t afraid. The cancer didn’t come back by the way. I think the male voice I heard recently though was a little louder and not quite as gentle.

    Any ideas on what this could be? And why is it happening now all of a sudden?

    Thanks for reading this.


  • T. Doyle February 8, 2016, 2:57 pm

    Hi again,

    I’m sorry to write 2 postings so close together but I forgot something that might help you in trying to answer my first post.

    For some time now, I would say maybe 5 years or so, I have seen a little tiny spot of bright light but just a speck of it usually up closer to the ceiling but not always sometimes quite a bit lower but in my direct line of vision so I see it I feel. It just appears for a split second and then it is gone and it happens pretty much every night. It isn’t right in front of me it’s across the room usually off to the right. It sort of feels like it is just wanting me to know it’s there. I am not afraid of it but it makes me wonder what the heck it is. Have you heard about this kind of thing before? It’s just a dot, not an orb, just a dot of light.

    At first I thought maybe something is wrong with my vision but I don’t think that’s it and why would it appear like that for just an istant anyways?

    Just wondered if you had any thoughts on what this might be too.

    Hope I am not taking up too much of your time.

    Thank you

    Hi Doyle,

    Sounds like you have had some strong spiritual experiences, some very loving like the healing from cancer, and others which are neutral where you are open and perceiving. There are more and more people opening up this way. There is a shift on the earth happening which is thinning the veils more than they usual are. This has been going on for many years. It may be that the gifts that you have are more active or you are able to perceive more because of this.

    As for your other comment regarding the speck of light, I would always rule out physical first just as a caution. You say that you don’t feel it’s your physical eyes. It may be, that case, a presence that is coming forward as a pinpoint of light rather than a full orb presence. Next time you see it, try speaking to it and see if it will move or change if you ask it to.

    I heard a voice ask me to choose good or evil, light or dark. I said out loud I choose good. I choose the light. Any input on this?

  • Selina Khan February 16, 2016, 11:54 am

    Hi Dawn,

    Wise choice. Just take it for what it was and let it be now. The important part was your choice and not who the voice belonged to.

    Take care,

    Should I worry when I hear my kids say “Mom” while I’m sleeping, then wake up & nothing. They didn’t call me. Does this mean something is or could be happening…. ? I’m a single mom & very close to my kids. They’re my best friends <3 <3

  • Selina Khan February 18, 2016, 2:42 pm

    Hi Elsabeth,

    Doesn’t feel like a spirit, more like psychic residue of sorts. Could also be your own worries manifesting this way – kind of like an audible temporary thought form.

    Rest easy,

  • Elizabeth A. Terry February 21, 2016, 12:09 pm

    I had a strange experience recently while I was ‘asleep.’ Before I actually dive into that, I should mention I’m a lucid dreamer and often enter into lucid dreams, but I rarely if ever actively take control of them.

    I’ve also had interactions with beings during the state of confusion between the dream and the waking in the dream. One of them was openingly annoyed, another seemed surprised, and two of them seemed worried. All three interactions happened within the same time frame – give a few weeks or so.

    And, although I’m not sure if it really counts, but I’ve been having recurring lucid dreams where I’m on a highway going one way with a flow of people while there were other people going the other way. I have had conversations with a woman during these. We talked about what was going on – she didn’t know either – and about dreams before I was waken up. I think I scared some of the people walking with us because their faces were the last thing I saw.

    Anyways back to the topic on hand. It was what people would normally classify as a lucid dream, but I felt I had no power during it just like the others I’ve had recently.

    It was a dark space with two, maybe more, people arguing. All I heard were their voices. One of the voices was low with an inhuman rumble. The other was light with a sort of echo effect.

    The one with the rumble was mocking me, while the other was trying to get me to create a light in the dark space.

    And I did. At least for a moment. The lighter voice said it was alright and to keep trying to make the light.

    I really have no ideal what’s going on in my dreams anymore. I’m meeting people, talking to them, and sometimes they say things that stick with me and make me think.

    What do you think this could be? Is it just an overactive imagination?

  • Selina Khan February 25, 2016, 12:53 pm

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. I have a book to recommend to you. I don’t think this is an over active imagination. I think you are a very good lucid dreamer.

    The name of the book is called Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple by Robert Waggoner and Caroline McCready. It’s one of the best books I’ve read on lucid dreaming as it gives you some very interesting techniques and concepts to consider which I have not come across in any other book I’ve read on lucid dreaming.

    One of the techniques I would like to you to read about in this book and try for yourself in on thought forms. The authors will explain what they did and you may find it clarifies what’s real and what’s not in your dream state when you are lucid dreaming.


  • Janet February 26, 2016, 11:30 pm

    Dear Selina,
    My dad passed away April 7/2014. We were a close family and he and my mom were married over 50 years. Dad did have some dimentia but still remembered us and my mom. He was dying but we didn’t feel a need to tell him that but on the other hand felt bad that we kept this secret. When my dad was alive, he would always call out my moms name and become insecure if she had to leave for a brief time. My mom has since moved into a senior building and very often hears her name being called, loud and clear! She said it is a mans voice but she can’t say for sure if it sounds like dad as it always throws her off at the time. Could this be my father? If so could it be he is not at peace. Thank you for any help you can offer, I need to know if my Dad is at peace.

  • Melissa February 28, 2016, 3:48 pm

    I’ve been experiencing a lot of strange things lately well my dad just died last year in November and on one occasion I was falling asleep when my whole body started vibrating and got extremely hot could hear my dads voice but it was hard to hear everything it was like when you are in a loud place and you keep having to ask the person what they said but there wasn’t any real background noise it was just like his voice would fade in and out…. And from that day forward I kept trying to fall back into that state so I can talk to him and I did end up having a dream and in the dream was my 2 year old son and he was talking and he sounded. Like himself but I knew it was my dad and I was crying in my dream and he held me and asked me why I was crying and I said because I miss you and he said he missed me too. Then the dream ended . I just want to know if it was really him…. And aso in the middle of the night on the 7th or 8th of this month I heard a child singing happy birthday.. Can anyone help me with understanding any of this?

  • Mark March 2, 2016, 8:44 am

    I’ve heard my father’s voice several years ago just seconds before I got the call that he died. I considered that a special gift. However, this morning I was awoken by a female voice saying “paper man” … I’m a journalist so it makes sense I guess. I woke up saying “huh?” Shrugged it off and went back to sleep and it happened again. “Paper man” isn’t a term I’ve ever used or thought about so I know it wasn’t my imagination. Any thoughts on this?

  • Sudip March 2, 2016, 12:21 pm

    Hi I had a strange experience at around 2am yesterday while i was in sleeping alone in my rented apartment. Actually the dream was weird with a man lying in mud at the side of a dead women Who seemed to be dead. The man was with illness and rubbing his face in the garbage nearby. Then after sometime a dog appeared near me and it converted to two small children with white clothes and then a women also appeared all of a sudden and shouted out loud “I need Body, i need body” , that time my body got frozen and I could feel chillness and i started shivering . I felt the childrens and women were very nearby me towards right side of my bed, i was so frightened tht i wanted to speak out but i was unable to. Then slowly i Started chanting a mantra of god repeatedly. After a minute i could get up but heart was still beating out loud. Still when i sit ideally i can easily recall the woman’s loud voice near my right ear. Please suggest what does it mean? I am scared.

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2016, 3:01 pm

    Hi Sudip,

    In my opinion, part of this dream represents things in your life. You may want to read my blog about dream interpretation and also the meaning of dreams.

    I also feel that you may be feeling or picking up on psychically someone else’s negativity (I sense female here) and this may be translating into how your dreams are coming about.

    Don’t be scared. Look at what this dream means from an interpretation point of view and not as a malicious spirit. I don’t feel there was a spirit involved.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2016, 3:11 pm

    Hi Mark,

    Not a guide. Yes female. Not old but certainly not a child. Nice light energy. Okay for this I think that she is not family related but feels more like a spirit that dropped in. And there is no message to this – just feels like she wanted to say “hi” by calling you paper man.

    Thanks for your comment!

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2016, 3:19 pm

    Hi Melissa,

    Sometimes spirits visit us in our “dreams”. These type of experiences really aren’t dreams per se. They are when you meet that spirit in an astral state (your spirit leaves your body and goes into the astral state or a “place” which does not need solid form). This is one way our loved ones can connect with us.

    I feel this was your father’s spirit coming through to connect with you.

    Many blessings,

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2016, 3:34 pm

    Hi Janet,

    Yes love – he transitioned quickly to the other side and there was a woman present in spirit in particular to greet him, as well others. Your dad is at peace.

    As for the voice your mom hears, give her some time to settle through her grief. She will be clearer when she is not hurting so much and will recognize the voice as his.

    Many blessings,

  • sandra Palmer March 10, 2016, 5:04 pm

    Hi its strange when i’m sleeping sometimes i will hear a man or womans voice.or knocking on a door or window at times. This morning i heard my moms voice telling me something my mom is alive and well and lives with her husband. What does it mean to sometimes hear a familiar voice of a love one alive in your sleep

  • Angela March 12, 2016, 2:43 pm

    Hi there, I think I had an encounter with a spirit last night…. Throughout my 18 years I would sometimes hear voices but they would be calm, and honestly I don’t remember what they said. My last encounter was a while ago. But last night In bed I woke up to fix my sleeping posistion and while being in the almost asleep but still awake state I heard a male voice just screaming my name! He said “ANGGGELLLAAA” really long like. It didn’t sound like my dads voice. This really spooked me and I then started to ask myself “what did I do?” “Is this god?” What should I make of this??

  • Selina Khan March 14, 2016, 3:01 pm

    Hi Sandra,

    Well, that really depends on the situation. Sometimes it’s that person’s spirit that is astral travelling and you are in tune to the vibrations of that particular plane at the time you hear it. Other times, it’s a tricky spirit mimicking a voice. This one doesn’t feel tricky however.

    Take it for what it was and don’t over analyze. It happens in different ways for many people.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan March 14, 2016, 3:09 pm

    Hi Angela,

    God would not scream your name like that. Why would God need to scream your name? You didn’t do anything. You have some abilities, one of which is clairaudience – psychic hearing. All this means is that you can (when you are open in this ability and attuned to a particular vibration) pick up on audible things that may not be accessible to us at other times. These things may be coming from a different plane of existence, like another dimension. It may have been a spirit.

    Just like human behaviour can be nice sometimes and other times not so nice sometimes, so can there be spirits that are very evolved and loving and others that are not so much. Pay no mind to this one. Don’t feed it fear. See yourself as the powerful being you are. Next time this happens, just say – if you can’t speak in a normal tone I won’t understand what you want and you need to tell me so I can decide if I want to talk to you or not.

    Just a suggestion. If you aren’t too scared, try it. It’s up to you whether you want to engage with it to see what it wants or to just ignore it and let it be. Either way, you are more powerful but you must believe it to make it so.


  • Frances March 15, 2016, 1:09 am

    Hello Selina,

    I think it’s so wonderful that you take the time to respond and help answer questions to all those that reach out to you for guidance. Thank you. Over the last 6 months I have experienced what seems to be a conversation I am having with someone in my sleep. From what I can recall it has happened about half a dozen times. It is always nonverbal communication and telepathic in some way. It usually happens half way into the night and I awake but Im in this strange sleep state where I dont feel completely conscious but I am aware. It always seems as though someone is giving me guidance of some sort or providing me with information. Last night I actually recall asking what the number 4 meant because I saw it a few times in one day and I felt as though maybe it was trying to tell me something. As I opened my eyes the ceiling fan showed 4 blades and my thought, or perhaps what I was being told was to consider the cross and its meaning. I thought of balance and harmony of some sort and then simply fell back asleep (today I did some research). Another time I felt as though I was being told the importance of someone in my life and another time it was almost as if I was speaking to the friend next to me (I happened to be in my friend’s home both times and slept in the same room). Event more strange. I had asked her if by chance I was speaking in my sleep and she heard nothing.They have all been slightly different and even typing this is a little scary because I dont understand it and sometime question my sanity. lol During these experiences I always feel safe, grateful and extremely interested in what I am being told. I get this feeling like it’s always important that I listen attentively and take heed to what I am hearing. It always feels like it is on a spiritual level. Spirit guides? My highest self? (not sure how that would work exactly). Just to note I have been taking psychic meditation and healing classes since all of this has happened so I have no doubt this is not a coincidence. I want to understand it more, embrace it and feel excited and grateful for these amazing experiences I get to have. For the most part I do 🙂



  • Selina Khan March 17, 2016, 12:28 pm

    Hi Frances,

    My feeling before I read further down and saw that you think it is a spirit guide or your higher self was that it feels like a spirit guide in the sense that you have a teacher in the astral plane that is guiding you. This one builds your knowledge and also works with your self-esteem.

    No coincidences Frances! Seems that your spiritual path is opening up just fine. Trust your intuition and your experiences.

    Many blessings,

  • Eric Grey March 18, 2016, 11:12 am

    Hello Selina,
    I would like to tell you the details of my experience of the past 4 days.
    I have final exams going on, and I have been staying up late at night for the past 4 days. Between 12 AM to 2 AM this experience has been occuring every single day. The first time, i was done with my studying, and was about to sleep when i suddenly felt drowsy, next thing i know, i heard someone call for help, it was a child’s voice, I fell asleep right after this. The 2nd time, it was different. Even though it was the same scenario with the same condition, the voice and the speech was different. What i heard the 2nd day would continue till the 4th day. What i heard was someone speak in a really slow manner such as in a slow motion video, it occured more than once so i tried to decipher it. What the voice said was most likely – “You Shall Die”. Today is the fifth day since it started.
    I must tell you about my past experiences as well. My father and I, both have had Out of Body Experiences. My father has been interested in spiritual things even before I was born. He is a user of Reiki Healing. My father gained the access to Out of body experience by meditating for long durations unlike me who was literally pulled out of my body by someone, not to worry because i have control of it and could return as soon as i realized i needed to. This someone who dragged me out of my body, i had sensed it’s presence in my room but i didnt care at that moment. My other experiences would be with ghosts, as a 4 year old child having a sleep over at my elder cousin sister’s house (which was pretty much about more than 40 years old) I was suddenly awoken by a unfamiliar presence, which i saw was a ghost of some sort since it came inside the room as smoke and later left turned into smoke and disappeared. My other experience with a ghost was about 6 years back when i was at my uncle’s house (mother’s elder brother), it was midnight, and i was somehow disturbed in my sleep, i woke up and i had a feeling i needed to pee, the bathroom was outside, and as a kid I was afraid and was thinking whether i should go or not, with courage i decided to go, the room was filled with adults, i unlocked the door to the hallway, and as soon as i opened the door, there it was, a man standing infront of me in pitch black darkness, i could see his body shape clearly through the darkness. This man had a creepy smile on his face, his face i would describe as glowing white eyes and a glowing white mouth.

  • Bookie March 20, 2016, 7:04 am


    I am in love with a man I was once engaged to many years ago. He has broken my heart once again and the pain has been unbearable. He will not return any of my calls. I haven’t seen him since July nor have we spoken since November. He has cancer. I reached out to an intuitive psychic and it was an amazing reading. She told me I was an empath and that was not the first time I was told that. She explained to me about free will also.

    This morning as clear as day I heard a female voice say my name and it felt like a big weight was lifted. off of my shoulders.

    I experienced a demon attack about 7 years ago. It happened after I watched a scary movie, I was half awake and half asleep. It felt like someone or something was sitting on my chest and I couldn’t move. I kept trying to move and I was terrified. Finally I stopped struggling and and layed completely still and in my mind I said now what you going to do take me? What? Then I was released , it was like my fear was making it hold me. I jumped up and ran as fast as I could and jumped in my husband’s lap. He didn’t know what was going on lol.

    I downloaded a few self help hypnosis audios to try to be positive, relieve my anxieties and they have helped. I have a lot of healing and a long road ahead of me but I will hold my head up high.

  • Jake March 21, 2016, 6:06 pm

    I attempted to sleep last night and as I began to feel that sleeping sensation my eyes jolted open and I was stuck staring at the ceiling while a voice seemed to be trying to start a conversation with me. This happens to me all the time late at night, the voices however are usually very high pitched with words I can’t comprehend. The voice I heard last night sounded just like my own. It terrified me at the time and later once I tried to sleep once again my heart would begin to race very rapidly until I was fully awake, like I was being shot with adrenaline. I’m not sure what any of this means… I’m told stories of my father who was stabbed by my mother shortly after I was born heard voices at night when he was a kid.

  • rick March 25, 2016, 2:42 pm

    so i am lead to believe that these voices in my head has somthing to do with my dead dad my dying in a desperate state and my being helplessly dependent i ask if any one has ever heard of this cause i know im not crazy but yet i hear voices and when i listen somtimes i get lead in the right direction and i cant take it to a psychiatrist

  • Jace Ashcraft March 30, 2016, 10:14 pm

    Hey Selina,
    Lately I’ve been hearing a variety of people in distress yell “help”. This happens during the day very rarely, but happens most during the night. After they stopped yelling “help” all I heard was screaming as if they were being burned alive. I don’t know how to handle this.

  • Pam April 3, 2016, 1:56 pm

    Last night I was in bed with my husband and our two small dogs. I was just dozing off when I heard a pounding on the front door, my dogs start barking, jump off the bed and run to the front door, barking like crazy! I jump out of bed and run to the door because the pounding sounded urgent, like something was either wrong or someone needed help! Pull the curtain back and look outside, nothing is there. I unlock the door and my dogs are barking and growling. I open the glass outer and step out on the porch, nothing/no one is there. I go back inside and go back to bed, my dogs follow. I make it a point to look at the clock at it says 11:11 pm. I asked my husband if he heard the pounding, he said no, he only heard the dogs. After, thinking about it for a while I doze back off to sleep, and the pounding on the front door happens again, this time even more aggressive! My dogs take off to the door again with me behind them! Again there is no one at my door, my oldest dog is growling and sniffing at the bottom of the door! My “gut” is telling me not to open the door again, so I do not. I ask my husband if he heard it that time, again, he did not! My dogs and I plainly heard it! I stay up for a while,then go back to bed. Later my two dogs jump up, start barking again, and run to my front door, I didn’t get out of bed this time, because I had an uneasy feeling! Any ideas as to what that may have been, I have had an unsettling feeling since it happened?

  • Brenda Dibble April 4, 2016, 5:00 pm

    Hi Selena, I was sleeping and awoken by a male voice (gentle voice) saying my name, then I heard teeth chattering. What does that mean? Teeth chattering is kind of creepy. Thank you.

  • Thalia April 5, 2016, 6:48 pm

    Today i felt asleep in the afternoon and i use too pratice Lucid dreaming havent done it in a while. But I did notice I was dreaming so when I notice I tried dreaming what i wanted and at that point i felt I was half asleep. Then sec.

A lot of voices at the same time but one caught my attetion it was really loud and it was a man laughing really loud. And evil laugh . and my body felt so weird. I got scared so I woke up and didn’t go back to sleep

  • Selina Khan April 6, 2016, 3:29 pm

    Hi Jace,

    Thanks for your comment. I feel it’s important for you to tell this to your parents so they can find a way to help you with this. It may be spiritual or it may not be. Either way, you’ll want their help in sorting it out.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan April 6, 2016, 7:43 pm

    Hi Brenda,

    I suppose hearing chattering teeth can be kind of creepy! The voice saying your name was a spirit trying to get your attention. Has a guide feel to him. The chattering teeth may have been an identifier for that spirit.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan April 6, 2016, 8:43 pm

    Hi Pam,

    Sounds like you had a spirit that may have been trying to scare you. This can sometimes happen. Not all spirits are of the light.

    You may have heard it because your vibrational frequency was matched to perceive it at that time. Your husband would not have perceived it as he was in a different vibrational frequency. It may also be that you are more open spiritually and psychically than your husband as well.

    You may choose to try saying a prayer of protection before bed. This may help. If you don’t feel strong enough to be more powerful than this spirit and tell it to leave, then try the prayer first. Also, if it persists and it bothers you, you may choose to have your house cleared.

    Take care,

  • Chelsea April 7, 2016, 9:59 am

    Dear Selena,
    I had woken up last night at 2:30 with this overwhelming sense of fear as if someone was looking at me. I began reciting the lord’s prayer but continued to feel this sense. Once I feel back to sleep I had a dream that two men were talking about me and one man was saying that the other was not allowed to take me, that they had other plans for me. I am curious to know what might have been going on.

  • Brittany April 11, 2016, 10:22 am

    Hello, ive had sleep disturbances for a long time, from when i was 5-13 i would dream of a girl over and over who i was terrified of til a lady said it was an attached spirit and did a prayer and the dreams stopped. Ever since though i often talk in my sleep or see things when im not quite awake. I often saw people standing in the room when waking but was told it was me still dreaming. Recently i hear different voices speaking as im falling asleep, only happens recently. Just wondering if all this means anything or if they are just dream hallucinations? Thanks.

  • Selina Khan April 13, 2016, 2:56 pm

    Hi Brittany,

    It may mean that you are more psychically in tune with particular vibrations and spirits and that’s why you are experiencing these things now. The spirit attachment and what is happening to you now are two different things. Most of the time, the spirit voices are just you tapping in or them making their presence known and not always a direct message to you.


  • Selina Khan April 13, 2016, 4:25 pm

    Hi Chelsea,

    While there may have been someone there I don’t feel it was a spirit that wanted to cause harm. The one watching you feels neutral although you may not perceive it as so because you were in a fear state from your dream. A dream is sometimes a dream and nothing other than that. In this case, the dream feels more like your subconscious reflecting back deeper fears and beliefs.


  • Tina April 16, 2016, 2:09 pm

    I’ve seen the numbers 11:11 repeatedly for the last 20 years. One afternoon I was very upset as I was laid off from my job and there was no one standing around me when I heard a male voice loudly whispered to me “it will be fine” I’m a girl So hearing a man’s voice coming from my chest freaked me out a bit.
    Thoughts please as I’d like contact again!

  • Selina Khan April 21, 2016, 2:56 pm

    Hi Tina,

    Someone in spirit that was giving you a message. As you needed to hear it so you would believe it, it was done in a way that was most tangible for you – out loud. It was to comfort you. Messages that are out loud like this happens as Spirit sees necessary and it takes more effort for them to make it so. If you are interested in contact, try in meditation.

    All the best,

  • Dee April 23, 2016, 9:09 pm

    Hello Selina,
    I have had an experience that actually terrified me. I was out in the yard, feeding my animals and was on the way back to the house, when I was stopped dead in my tracks. I could hear behind me in the woods what sounded like a pack of vicious, snarling dogs, gains clanking,running towards me. At first the sound was far away, and grew louder as if they were coming closer. It was as if I was frozen with fear, I knew in my mind I had to get to my house or I would be mauled by these dogs. I finally made myself move towards the house, and got inside. I was looking out my window to see if I could see anything, I saw nothing. I was so terrified, I call my daughter-in-law, I was so afraid, I could barely speak. There was nothing out there.
    Thank you

  • Selina Khan May 2, 2016, 6:28 pm

    Hi Dee,

    It may be possible that you picked up psychically on something that is connected to the land – like a psychic imprint. Try not to let this experience make you afraid of being in your yard. If it happens again, you may need to have someone clear the land. I do not feel this was an attack against you by a spirit or someone sending bad energy. It feels more like a one-off experience.


  • Angela May 16, 2016, 5:24 am

    I was awakened a few hours ago by a very distinct but unrecognizable male voice. The only thing said was “I love you”. It was very matter of fact and quick but it felt sincere. In that moment I was not afraid but now I wonder it’s potential meaning.

  • Selina Khan May 16, 2016, 10:53 am

    Hi Angela,

    All of us have many spirits that guide us, support us, and love us. You may not remember all of them when you incarnate. Some are family in spirit, others are spirit guides, angelic beings, etc. One choose to give you a message of love.


  • McAllister B May 20, 2016, 12:19 pm

    I woke from sleep last night feeling a burning feeling in my throat so I sat up to drink water. My boyfriend was asleep in bed next to me, and I thought I heard him ask a question, but when I tried to turn to face him I became paralysed and my hands and legs shook uncontrollably. I then heard the voice come back sounding distorded, it was very violent and terrifying. I heard it call me sexy, and it felt like it was leaning over me right in my ear. I was so terrified at this voice and the fact I couldnt move that I tried to scream but no noise would come out. I kept trying to scream and move but I couldnt. It finally stopped and I tried to wake up my boyfriend but I couldnt so I rolled back over and tried to sleep but the second I closed my eyes it happened again. Im afraid to sleep or lay down in my bedroom.. What do I do? Please help.

    It has been about 8 months, nightly without fail, that I have been contacted by voices coming from my husband while he sleeps. At first I was convinced that it was MPD/DID because they used every version of his name and somewhat factual stories from his child to adulthood. Sometimes there was overlapping of many voices into one (very weird) but I read that happens in MPD/DID. There have been all night conversations with full sentences and Q&A coming fro various “persons” with their own age, tone, inflection and character. They’ve told me of their traumas, problems, desires, awareness of themselves (most have been locked in time at a certain age unaware of the body’s age), etc. This went on for about 5 to 6 months non-stop. My husband refused to accept any of this so it was my burden of caring for HIS inner children! I was alone. It got so that I recognized the personalities by their voices and thought I was actually doing good and caring for his inner traumatized children so I bought old 50’s storybooks (they were locked in time, remember?) and read them age appropriate stories by flashlight so as not to wake my husband, and console them, etc. They wanted me to be like a mother. Next they wanted me to feed them dinner because they were hungry so I described a wonderful dinner I “prepared” and them sitting down at a table with me to eat it. After a few months, for some reason they got restless with this and then the conversation with the older ones started to turn rude, threatening and lascivious. One of the stronger ones said the whole thing with the children was fake and a ploy to keep me engaged and nothing they said was true. He said they were many spirits and demons inside my husband that came to him when he was a baby (left alone by his single working mother) and that one demon continued to let others inside him for his entire life. I cried from the sadness of losing these beautiful children, and from betrayal and exhaustion. I started feeling like my world was coming apart bc I couldn’t (and still can’t) get any sleep for the interruptions, most of which always seem to intrigue me and I find myself “interviewing” the voice(s) with tons of questions. I am told many stories but in the end, they are mostly lies and end in threats so I am finally done with that! My husband got me sleep headphones and that works but now my ears are ringing all day. I also use earplugs some nights but they always come out and some voice wakes me up trying to tell me something and catch me off guard and get inside (what? my aura? my body? my soul?). It is always a struggle each night bc I try not to listen to them begging for my energy and they get very angry now. I wake up so tired. At the same time I am trying to shield myself and my husband with white light, or a bubble of light energy, stones and crystals, incense, oils, cleansings, calling Angels, trying to pull back in any soul fragments to heal my aura and raise my vibration with music, and anything else I can think of, but they always come back again at night. I wish I had never spoken to them. I don’t know why these voices are coming from my husband’s mouth while he is asleep but he doesn’t remember anything at all, even though sometimes he is turning over and speaking loudly to me or pouting when mad, moving his hands and legs… This has also happened when he falls asleep at the TV. I told him about this at first but he thinks I am going crazy (maybe I am) so he stopped talking to me very much and we just watch TV until bedtime. I try not to talk about any of this anymore to protect what is left of our relationship, but I am suffering in this strangeness alone and don’t know a way out…now it feels like he doesn’t even desire me anymore and I am still stuck with his spirits and demons.

    I am not sure what is happening to me but last night i heard someone walk over the part of the wood floor that cricks when you step on it by the door, i woke up and saw no one. This happened at 3 am, than around 3:03am (Central time) I felt someone pushing on me and my head began to feel woozy to the point if there was a wind storm in my head and than i heard “Can you play with me”. I tried to get up but i couldn’t move for a couple of seconds and when idid get up i put on my glasses and saw nothing. Nothing at all was there. The last time i heard this child’s voice was when i was at my mothers house and this was a year ago, her dog ran away and i started crying cause i did not know how to tell me mother what had happen. I was sitting at the end of the steps and suddenly heard “it’s going to be okay” than someone running up the stairs laughing. it was a childs voice. Have a gone mad? I do not know what it is. I really do not. Can anyone shed some light.

  • Selina Khan May 30, 2016, 11:38 am

    Hi Danyella,

    It’s very possible that you are hearing the spirit of a child. Spirits can cause audible sounds like footsteps, other noises, as well communicate out loud at times with a word or phrase. Spirits can be drawn to a place, person or even an object.

    While I can’t offer a medical opinion of you having “gone mad” as I am not a doctor, from a spiritual perspective it sounds like you may have some abilities and there is a spirit that comes around you sometimes. This doesn’t feel malicious to me. This spirit may not have crossed and in that case, I suggest you ask Archangel Michael to assist her to find her way Home. Try this first, and see what happens.


  • Selina Khan May 30, 2016, 11:57 am

    Hi Anonymous,

    My first thought is why don’t you video tape these episodes and see what plays back? If you are able to capture it and indeed he is shown doing these things, maybe it will help him to see that he may need to work things out with a therapist. Even if he doesn’t want to go or nothing shows up on the video, you may want to go for support for yourself through this stressful time. In my opinion, you can’t assume that this is solely a spiritual cause as there may be some psychological trauma that needs to be addressed as well.


  • Selina Khan May 30, 2016, 3:13 pm

    Hi McAllister B,

    It’s possible for spirits that are not so nice to try to scare you. From a spiritual standpoint, here is what you can try:

    1. Do some basic energetic protection before you go to bed. See yourself, your room and house all surrounded in white light. Ask your guides and angels to protect you while you sleep.
    2. Work on connecting to your own sense of power. That way if it happens again, your strength will show it that it can’t mess with you.

    Try this and let’s see if this helps. There are other things but for now, stick with this.


  • Erika June 5, 2016, 2:22 am

    Hi Selina,

    Ive got a dream last night where someone whispered behind my ear and told me “end the lives of the world” i couldnt recognized the voice but it was like from a female. That’s the only part i can remember clearly.

    Then months back, i also had this dream of like i was standing and watching someone or myself (not sure) lying on a table in a middle of the dark room with a spot light directly on the table from above. Then there was like a man i dont recognized at all, standing beside the table and whispering words i dont understand and halfway through the oration a black spirit was like being cast out and this man was trying the spirit to get off from the unconscious person (me or someone) lying on the table. and i felt like i was being floated in the air while tht was happening. the black spirit havent departed from the person it was just halfway out of it as far as i remembered. I woke up scared and all cause i couldnt undrstnd. and while i was on my dream i wasnt aware that it was a dream. it felt so real. what can you say about them?

  • Selina Khan June 6, 2016, 12:58 pm

    Hi Erika,

    Thanks for your comment. Sounds like you’ve had a couple of interesting dreams. The voice in the first dream, as you can’t remember any other context, I would not worry about. Sometimes things are symbolic in dreams, or come from our fears. Even if it was a spirit in your dream communicating with you, it doesn’t mean it is prophetic.

    The second dream sounds like it was on the astral plane and could be mixed with a belief that you have. From what I understand, the astral plane is another state or dimension which is quite real and operates under different rules – such as being able to fly, see through things, etc. Sometimes the astral state experiences can be partially shaped by our beliefs or fears. While you may indeed have been experiencing or witnessing a clearing of the entity within the person on the table, it may also be happening because it is reflecting something you feel about yourself on a core level and that is shaping what kind of reality takes form on the astral plane.

    It’s an interesting dream and I’m glad you shared it with us. See your dreams as information or interesting experiences to observe. Sometimes they bring us great joy, and other times challenge us as to how we choose to integrate the information.


  • Dan June 7, 2016, 6:32 pm

    Hi, I’m not to sure how old this tread is but it you can give me some advice that would be awesome. I am 34 years old and come from a very spiritual family. As long as I can remember I have always been able to hear sports speak before sleep. Sometimes I can hear them in mid day. Sometimes they touch my legs in bed or poke me. But lately it is every night like they are trying to tell me something. Also I have seen more sports them I like too talk about because people think I’m crazy when I say that. So my question is how do I get stronger. I need to know what they want. I think it’s different people all the time different ages, sex’s, and races…. what do you think? Anyone?. Thanks!

  • Austin June 18, 2016, 12:15 pm

    I this is obviously bad but is it a bad thing that I just woke up in that frozen state and heard a wispering almost female voice tell it’s going to kill me in my sleep it really creeper me out and now Im kinda scare to go back to sleep

  • Ashu July 2, 2016, 6:43 pm

    Hi Selina,

    First of all, it’s wonderful what you are doing out there.

    I feel lucky to share my experience and maybe get your view on that. Since last couple of months before I am generally fully asleep, I hear some strange voices of someone talking and wake up scared, as I am not a very sound sleeper and a slight movement/voice can wake me up. Sometimes it’s of a man and sometimes of a lady.

    Secondly, last night I was just lying down half asleep and opened my eyes and saw my mother’s shadow above me (she’s still alive but in another country) trying to enter my body from above me. I realized that was something evil and I just started shouting “i am not scared of you” and the shadow kept on saying “shhh” “shhh”. and I just kept on screaming “I am not scared of you, you can’t harm me” and suddenly I woke up with my heart racing badly.

    Any idea what this could be?

  • Hayley July 6, 2016, 8:45 pm

    I had the scariest experience last night, and I’m hoping you could shead some light. I have always had very intense dreams and have had a few psychic moments here and there since I was a child, but last night takes the cake.

    I was dreaming about being in apart of a family I didn’t recognize in a huge plantation style home, but it felt like we were all spirits and the home was completely dark and evil. I remember trying to wake myself when I felt half awake but completely frozen by a fear i cant describe in my bed, it felt as if my covers were trying to slowly smother me, and I heard loud and clear in a females voice with a second deep voice behind it “I know you are beautiful, don’t pull away” then I woke up fully. Absolutely terrified.

    I prayed out loud for protection, fell back asleep, but awoke with a different nightmare minus the night terror. What should I do differently??? I genuinely felt under attack!

  • Selina Khan July 8, 2016, 3:26 pm

    Hi Ashu,

    Yes I do have ideas. The voices you hear could be you tapping into a different vibrational frequency where others reside. We don’t often think of spirits as living in a different vibrational realm or dimension, but they do. When you sleep, sometimes abilties that are not usually open during the day, open up and you will perceive things like this.

    The shadow above you is as you just as you describe. Nice to see you have some courage in you and some power to deal with it. Good job!


  • Selina Khan July 8, 2016, 3:41 pm

    Hi Hayley,

    Try praying before you sleep. See if this helps. Then if it still goes on, use visualization in your psychic protection work mixed with very strong intention. If that doesn’t work, then look at any beliefs you have about being weak. Spirits of ill intent often prey on those who have a weak belief as they look to dominate or influence, or sometimes just cause fear.

    You can do all of these at once, or try them one at a time. If all these things still don’t help, then have yourself worked on energetically and have your place cleared as well. I can help you with this – see my services, or you can find someone else who can. But try the other things first.


  • Charlotte Cann July 13, 2016, 6:51 am

  • April Rump July 22, 2016, 5:36 pm

    Hi I have heard my name being called over the years and I’m also very into the spirit world I get orbs in pictures and when I hear a noise I take pic and every time a orb is there.. Last night I was praying or laying in bed trying to fall asleep and I heard my name April like it was being shouted n drawn out it was very odd what could all this mean? I know we have a bloodline of physchic abilities but I’m not sure if I am or who is visiting me or the message.

  • Benjamin plumlee July 27, 2016, 4:57 am

    I need help on a totally different matter.
    I’m 16 soon to be 17 and when I sleep I wake up a few times here and there but sometimes when I do I’ll wake up to a shadowy figure with glowing red eyes looking straight down at me and then a minute or two will pass then it gets hard to breathe to the point where im suffocating and when it starts to be like that it will place it hands or claws on my face then I’ll start to hear whispers and see symbols floating. Then it leans in inches to my face and tells me “you are mine” then everything goes black and I wake up the next morning remembering it all but physically feeling like it never happened so can anyone help me find answers please idk what to do oh and this has been happening to me since I was 5

  • Sal July 27, 2016, 5:32 pm

    Hi Selena,
    For a few weeks now, I am woken up in the middle of the night by a man’s voice. It’s more like a mumbling as though he’s in the next room…like i can’t make out what he’s saying. Then last night, I was woken up by whispering. I think it was a female this time, although i don’t know why i think that. But i think there were two of them last night, even though i don’t remember hearing him, but i thought she was talking to him.

    I’m not scared and I haven’t noticed my cat reacting to it. Any help or insight would be much appreciated!

  • Stefany July 29, 2016, 4:16 pm

    Hi. I just found your website. I don’t know if you respond to everyone but it seems like you try to so I’m taking a chance. A psychic/ warlock once told my mom that ever since I was little, I’ve always been sensitive to spirits & that they are drawn to me. He said that because I had 2 near death experiences that my connection with the spirit works got stronger. I’ve had nightmares/ night terrors since I was a kid but I’m not sure if that has anything to do with what he said. Anyway, the past 2 months my night terrors have come back & gotten worse progressively. I wake up halfway & hear voices or screams but I cannot open my eyes or completely wake up. It’s gotten very scary & I feel like some kind of spirit or demon is tormenting me for some reason. I do not understand any of this. Please, if you or anyone on here can help me in any way, at least answer a few questions for me.. I’d really appreciate it. Help me, I’m terrified & I feel so helpless & frustrated that praying & asking them to leave me alone does not work I don’t know what to do.

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 2:46 pm

    Hi Charlotte,

    Thanks for your comment. Sorry it’s taken a long time to respond. I tend have a full clientelle which leaves me little time to check into my blog.

    Have you heard of people who can read words with their hands, etc – they see with different parts of their body? It is very possible to see without the eyes and to hear without the ears. You have senses that open when you are in a particular brain wave state, and often that happens during sleep. Some of these senses are just like your physical ones except that they are energetic and don’t need a physical mechanism like the eyes or ears to perceive.

    Most times experiences like the one you describe are snippets of things you remember that are on the astral plane.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 2:51 pm

    Hi Sharda,

    So your dad heard it too that last time? I did one house clearing a while ago where there was a spirit calling out audibly. Try staying calm and asking this spirit to either tell you what it wants to say or to stop bothering you and see what happens – a suggestion to you if you would like to try next time this happens. It is a bit of a playful spirit in a mischievous way.

    Kind regards,

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 5:42 pm

    Hi April,

    Time is not constant. It fluctuates. It changes from dimension to dimension and in some dimensions there is no time. In others there is timelessness. When you tap into other dimensions, there may be a translation effect either wholly or in part. Think of it as having a skype call where the connection slows the speech down for a few seconds. That’s one example. There are many variables to consider including the spirit’s vibration and capabilities and your own vibration as well.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan August 12, 2016, 11:40 am

    Hi Stefany,

    In cases where there is spiritual activity in the sleep state as you are describing, it would be helpful to have the house cleared and protected. It would also be helpful to have your own energy cleared and to start to learn how to work with your energy so you can keep it nicely maintained on your own and find your power so your boundaries and confidence change. The energy or entity that you are experiencing may be there for a couple reasons. It could be psychic attack. It could be something that is attracted to a particular vibration (hence change yours and the vibration of your house). In either case, what you do is the same.


  • Jacob August 27, 2016, 1:36 am

    Wow, looks like I found you! I had an experience this morning. I guess I was about to wake up and heard my name. Clear as a bell! I was more surprised than scared. I’m actually fascinated by this. And then last week I’m not sure what an aura looks like but I began to notice space around my professor at school. I began to see purple! I’m not sure if what I saw was real but every time I blinked it was still there. Way cool ! Any thoughts? Thanks for letting me post.

  • Kelly August 28, 2016, 6:46 am

    Hi there I am a Christian and an alcoholic and often wake up during the night many times. Lately I have heard coughing in my ear in that sleep and awake place, whispers and other things, it is always female. Why? I don’t want a spirit connecting to me.

  • Kelly August 28, 2016, 6:57 am

    One more it’s def a female child. I love children I’m 35 and have nothing and often dream about protecting and lookimg after little girls that are not my own. I just don’t want a spirit in my home I only hear in that between asleep and awake place and pray for God to make to go away.

  • Selina Khan August 31, 2016, 12:07 pm

    Hi Kelly,

    There may be a reason that this is happening to you. But if you are too uncomfortable, you may ask God to help this little girl to find someone else that will hear her or if the message is for you and is important, that it come through in a different way.


  • Selina Khan August 31, 2016, 12:09 pm

    Hi Jacob,

    Often when people have their psychic hearing (clairaudience) start to open up, they may have certain types of experiences. Hearing your name is one that is common.

    Believe what you see and trust in your own experiences. You are seeing part of your prof’s aura.

    Take care,

  • Jordan September 4, 2016, 2:18 pm

    Hi I’m Jordan and I’m 14 years old from Australia and I’ve heard heavy breathing on a number of occasions but this one time a couple of weeks ago I heard the breathing again and said who are you and it kept saying these words as a wissper in my ear that I couldn’t understand then I herd it louder and realised it was saying your dead Jordan over and over. Then at the end of my bed I herd another voice that felt good saying to me to go over to the end of the bed away from the window and I thought it would protect me so that’s what I did but I’m scared and I want you to help me not be.

  • Travis September 6, 2016, 7:32 am

    Hey there,

    A year or so ago, a friend and I were watching illuminati videos and the demonic messages that come with. We stayed up ubtil the early hours of the morning and just before I properly fell asleep, I heard lots of screams- screams of different people- it was not just one person. I have no idea what this was.

    And much more recently- these past three weeks to be precise- I’ve been hearing the exact same humming tune in my dreams. The tune sounds quite Gothic and almost like an ancient chant. I am a born-again Christian if that makes a difference.

    I guess I’d like some clarity and so I have a clear direction as of where to look for more answers. I am not afraid, I very excited and curious by it all.

    Thank you for your time, Selina and bless you 🙂

  • Selina Khan September 8, 2016, 9:48 am

    Hi Jordan,

    Thanks for your comment. I would suggest that you look at this from two perspectives – one is to talk to someone about it in case this is not strictly a spiritual phenomenon. Rule out that there may be some other kind of cause like stress, or mental health. Spiritually, you are a powerful being and there are techniques you can use to surround yourself with love and higher vibrational energy. Most of these involve visualization, prayer, and working on oneself in opening the heart to receive and hold love. You may find some tips if you read my reply to others in these blog comments.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan September 8, 2016, 9:53 am

    Hi Travis,

    I stopped watching these videos a long time ago as I find it tends to trigger fear and hopelessness. I have also noticed that certain videos and movies tend to alter or affect our energy and this may make one more perceptive to certain frequencies, thoughts, etc. I would suggest as you are not afraid and more curious that you look in your mind’s eye when the screaming occurs or feel with your energy as to where this is coming from. Also the same for the music. Then, I would meditate and see what answers come. You may have past life connections to the chanting and that can be explored in meditation on your own or with a past life practitioner.

    Hope this helps!


  • Alexandra September 9, 2016, 10:31 am

    Hey Selina,

    This early morning I was somewhat asleep and up but not dreaming when I heard a male voice shouted ” shut up!” I didn’t react to it I guess and then he shouted “hey!” When I got up nothing, everyone was sleeping . What do you think this message could be if any…

  • Linda DaPra September 11, 2016, 12:31 am

    A few months ago I heard a deep voice just as I was waking up. He said “you will live to be 82”. Last week I was diagnosed with cancer and 82. Sounds good now . I’m 69. Can that be true?

  • Joe September 15, 2016, 7:30 pm

    I overslept for work (I never use an alarm) and right before I woke up I heard a nice female voice countdown “3,2,1” and I instantly woke up. I rushed out the door because I was late, but very appreciative for the wake-up call. Just strange thinking about it, maybe someone else has had this experience.

  • Selina Khan September 22, 2016, 12:15 pm

    Hi Alexandra,

    Most of the time, others don’t hear what we hear when we are in the in-between sleep and awake state. That’s because when we reach a particular state of awareness through this half sleep state, our perception changes and we are able to perceive or tap into a different vibrational plane of existence. Sounds like you heard snippets of a conversation or at least his side of something. The “hey” may have been directed at you if he was aware of your presence. I wouldn’t worry about it. Feels like a very neutral male energy.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan September 22, 2016, 12:24 pm

    Hi Linda,

    I believe that all things are possible. Yes it’s very possible for you to live until you are 82, and who knows? Maybe even beyond that! Spirit will often give us support in our times of need. Many blessings to you.
