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,

  • Glorious-Sam July 25, 2015, 3:30 am

    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?

    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,

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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???
