Hearing Spirit Voices When Falling Asleep – What You Can Do

spirit voices when falling asleep

I get a lot of people who wonder what to do when Hearing Spirit Voices When Falling Asleep. It’s amazing how many of us hear a voice at night or hear a voice while sleeping. Sometimes the voice wakes you up out of your sleep and sometimes when you hear a voice when you are in that between sleep and awake state.

Some of you have told me you are startled or afraid when this happens. You’ve also told me that the spirit voice you hear when falling asleep doesn’t always make sense. It’s a word that’s said, or a name, or a phrase that seems to be from the middle of a conversation or something you can’t relate to.

I’m going to address the most common questions that you ask me about hearing these spirits speak to you. I’ll also give you a few things to try to help you in case you want to talk to them, or you don’t want them bothering you.

Why me?

Why is this happening to you? Why are you hearing these spirit voices when falling asleep?

First I want to clarify that there is a difference between hearing in a psychic way when you are mentally stable versus hearing voices speak to you when you are not mentally stable and thinking they are something other than what they are. I’m only addressing the first case as that’s my expertise.

You are hearing these spirit voices when falling asleep because when you are sleeping your natural defenses are not strong and so it’s easier for spirit to reach you. You have a natural ability that is receptive when you are in a very relaxed state and your mind is not cluttered, such as the between awake and sleep state.

During the day, your mind is busy and this creates noise that spirit has to work to get through. It’s much easier for them to communicate to you in your sleep if you are blocked in some way, either through fear or too many thoughts. They may choose to try to talk to you when you are more receptive because it’s better for both you and them until you learn to become more receptive when you are awake.

It’s also possible that you are tapping into another dimensional plane. This happens when we astral travel. Your spirit leaves your body and experiences other planes of existence which may include dimensions that you can’t normally perceive.

When you settle back into your body, you are integrating into the physical while still partially connected to the astral. This is where you may hear voices with your physical ears or with your psychic hearing. When you are in this state, psychic hearing can seem to be very loud or tangible. If you aren’t fully awake, it can startle you awake.

Rather than coming back into the body, it’s also possible that you are starting the process of leaving the body to astral travel. The point is that it’s the in-between state of partially being in and out of the body where we are open to both experiencing and remembering.

There is a difference between catching a bit of conversation that is not directed at you and a spirit specifically trying to say something to you. Sometimes you hear a voice saying something that doesn’t seem to make sense as if you hear a random phrase. Other time, it’s a message that does make sense or a name or voice you recognize.

Is this a bad spirit? Should I be afraid?

Most of the time, the spirit voice you hear when falling asleep is not from a spirit that is negative or manipulative. In a very few cases, it’s not so nice a spirit. How can you tell? Use both your common sense and your intuitive abilities to find out.

Spirits from the light or spirit guides who work with your highest good may come with a loving or neutral feel. Spirits that are manipulative may feel neutral, angry, like they want to control, or bad. Once you get over your initial fear of being startled or being afraid of spirits, you may be able to feel their vibration better.

Another way to tell is to listen to the message. Spirits from the light do not manipulate you. In either case, there is no need to be afraid. If you know you are more powerful than they are and that you can call in protection and help from your spirit guides, family in spirit, and Angel, it will help you to deal with this situation.

Sometimes you need to have a medium come in and clear the house if the problem persists or to help guide you in shifting your energy so you aren’t as vulnerable to these types of energies.

I want this to stop. What can I do?

Ask. Ask your spirit guides to not let anything disturb you in your sleep unless it’s for your highest good. Ask the spirit to quit bothering you and if there is a message for you that you receive it in a different way that won’t scare you (unless you don’t want the message at all).

How do you talk to a spirit? You do it out loud or in your head. You can try before they show up again. You can do this the next time they pop in and speak to you.

If it’s not a spirit but you tapping into a dimension while astral travelling, then you may want to ask that your higher self or spirit guides help you settle in and out of your body in a way where you don’t hear voices.

You can also try envisioning yourself in a white light bubble and asking for protection from anything that is not from love and light. Do this before going to sleep.

If you are naturally sensitive or too open, you might want to try closing your chakras a little (not completely) so you won’t be so perceptive. You do this through visualization and intention.

Could this be a Spirit Guide?

Sure. The voice that you hear when you are falling asleep could be a spirit guide, a family member in spirit, a spirit that is just passing through, or a spirit on another dimensional plane.

I heard my boyfriend’s voice, but he’s still alive. What does this mean?

It’s possible that your spirits connected on the astral plane or that he astral traveled and his spirit spoke to you. He may or may not be aware of this when he awakens and if he does it may have felt like a dream.

I just didn’t hear a voice. Something also touched me.

Spirit tries to get our attention in many ways. Touch is another way. So are fragrances, words, sounds, feelings (like feeling a presence near you), and signs. There are other ways, but these are the most common ways.

When I’m waking up and hear a spirit’s voice, sometimes I can’t move or speak.

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 temporary paralysis, tingling in the body, 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.

Does this mean I’m a medium?

A medium is someone who is able to communicate with the spirit world. So yes, this may be considered a form of mediumship. Most people think of a medium as someone who can connect to the spirit world while in an awake state so they can relay messages.

It is possible to train to open your abilities to a higher level so you can connect to spirits when you want to and converse with them in a more controlled way rather than hearing a voice when falling asleep. This is what I teach my students to do. We work on developing their psychic abilities so they can learn to perceive and converse with loved ones in spirit, spirit guides, higher beings like Angels and Ascended Masters.

Even if you decide you don’t want to take your abilities to a higher level, hearing voices when falling asleep is not uncommon these days. I believe it’s part of the ascension shift we are going through and becoming more intuitive and open is one of the effects of the energy shifts on the planet.

    Every night in my apartment I’ve been snapping pictures and video because I’ve been hearing voices and whispers and actually have been touched on my face,hands and my arms,in my pics and viceos there are 20 to 30 different orbs flying all over the place and I thought it was dust possibly until I saw the orbs actually flying around like they were alive and had meaning to where they were going unlike the dust I see also in the videos. I also see them sometimes without my camera too so I’m just wanting to know if I’m going crazy or do I have some gift that allows me to see and hear spirits? Your site actually made me feel better because other people have had the same experiences as I do and to get some answers why this is happening would help me big time!

    I hear voices before I am even asleep yet and I hear the voice of my brother’s girl friend. It’s so clear that I can really hear the exact words. But then again my brother’s girl friend is also not asleep at that time but when I text her via cellphone she replied and told me she never went out from the room yet.

    I hear it almost every other night and this time I heard own husband’s voice calling me. I am very awake at that time and I am getting worried cause I hear it every other night but never in the day …

    I hear it when I’m sitting in the living hall while reading, which means it is very silent and quiet night and I can hear a very clear whispering voice of my husband just next to me and yet he is not asleep either he is upstairs and I am down stairs …

    This really dress me out… i hope I’m not going nuts over this.

    Hello, I’m a 14 year old female and I’m really into spiritual things :3
    Anyways, so, one night a few months ago, I was soooooo close to dozing off and all of a sudden I hear loud whispers and I couldn’t understand what they were saying but it sounded like there was way more than two voices. Anyways, I remember hearing this unknown, clear, loud voice (it sounded really close too) and it said, “I would run.”
    I didn’t really freak out I was more like ‘wtf.. Okay… That was weird..’ I opened my eyes after I heard it and the voices went away.

    I would love to know if this is a good spirit or a bad one.

    I have seen spirits in case you’re wondering. c:
    And actually today I was crying in my room by myself and I heard a faint “shhh..” That sounded like it came from my room somewhere.
    Oh and just a second ago, (it’s 3:54am and obviously everyone is asleep execpt for my sister and I) I heard something banging or falling down in the lounge room/kitchen and my sister came in and asked if that was me (I thought it was her for a minute) but it wasn’t either of us. Shortly after my sister left my room I suddenly felt really dizzy like woah… Really really dizzy and it lasted for about 5 seconds and it happened 3 times. I’m confused if it was a spirit and that was its effect on me, draining my energy to manifest?
    I’m not sure…

    Is it possible that spirits can speak to you?

    Please answer soon :3
    I look forward to hearing back 😀

  • Selina Khan January 6, 2016, 5:07 pm

    Hi Unknown :3,

    Sounds like you might have some spirit activity in the house. Likely a spirit that is playing around, trying to get attention. As you have seen, yes spirit can speak to you. If you read more of the comments, you’ll find some tips in my replies.

    Take care,

  • Johnathan February 13, 2016, 8:00 pm


    This is interesting…and I am hoping you can clarify this for me. It’s starting to play on my mental health…I don’t believe I am “crazy.” My experiences have been great but also kind of terrifying. Years ago I heard a mans voice IN my ear saying, “Please help me.” It SCARED me so much. Recently I have had similar experiences on and off for the last 3 weeks. First time I heard a woman’s voice, upon waking up in the middle of the night and saying, “hey neighbour.” Last week it was a woman’s voice, upon waking up in the middle of the night, saying, “It’s time.” Recently…only last night…I was awoken by a scary, terrifying “hissing” sound. Almost like a really mad, mad cat or a static-like television station…Am I picking up on good energy and spirits? Or should I sign myself up to the butterscotch palace?

  • Selina Khan February 16, 2016, 11:59 am

    Hi Johnathan,

    Try some of the suggestions I’ve given other people in the blog and comment section for both blogs on this topic and see if that helps from a spiritual perspective. I can’t give you a yes or no as to being mentally ill as I’m not a doctor. I have my own opinions on what is psychic, what is mind, what is truth and what is illusion, but they are just my opinions 🙂

    Take care!

    When I was about to sleep, I heard a woman saying “I’m so sorry” outside. I had my two brothers look outside but no body was there. My older brother heard something move into my woods. My younger brother saw a flash of light coming from my room. Also my kitchen light goes off and on. I been touched on the shoulder when I’m sleeping.

  • Elle March 20, 2016, 9:48 am

    I wondered if you had any experience of what I believe to be an angel whispering in my ear.Have also been experiencing high pitched buzzing in my ears which precedes seeing repetitive number sequences.
    In the early hours of this morning I heard a spirit whispering the initial P in my ear which is weird as had seen the letter the previous evening.Thanks!

  • Selina Khan March 23, 2016, 4:58 pm

    Hi Elle,

    I’ll give you my spiritual perspective of what may be going on with you. As you read in blog post, it’s possible for us to perceive other beings that are in other dimensions such as the realm where spirits are. There are many types of beings in this vast creation of life and what we classify as an angel is just one of them. The buzzing noise is not uncommon when our clairaudience (psychic hearing) is starting to open up. I believe that it may also be a “communication” but in a different form than we can perceive as words. Number sequences are a very common thing that people who are starting to open up spiritually start to see. It can be a message, an activation, or it can be a sign of being in the flow or having support around us from Spirit.

    These are confused earthbound spirits who are attracted to people who think negatively. Always strive to be cheerful. Maintain a balanced mind by practising indifference to good and bad situations. Try hard to resist destructive thoughts like anger, jealousy, greed, lust etc. Pray every morning(very important). By Instilling positive emotions in your mind, like gratitude, admiration, sympathy etc you will attract helpful angelic beings who will protect you from the earthbound spirits.

    While I’m asleep I can hear a man’s voice saying Aye I immediately wake up saying Huh and looking around my room.

  • Taylor May 31, 2016, 12:59 am

    Hello 🙂 So the apartment I’m living in used to be the town hospital. Idk why they decided it was such a good idea to make into a apartment though. Anyways while I have heard spirits or whomever talk some gibberish and some actual words when I’m about to fall asleep from time to time, today was a little different. So I was on the computer (with no volume on) reading/researching stuff for school while my parents were in the living room talking over the tv in there. Since our space is small I can easily hear about everything they say since they talk loud anyways.

    So out of nowhere it felt almost like the air around my immediate space in my room stilled at the same time that the sound of my parents and the tv dimmed VERY noticeably. A couple seconds after this I hear an almost female voice whisper “exactly.” About 10 seconds after that the air pressure and volume around me went back to normal. I wasn’t scared that it happened only a bit surprised.

    The odd thing was that I heard my mom say the word “exactly” right after everything went back to normal!

    Could this be a spirit trying to play games? Was it some weird telepathic communication? Or could my sense of the future be increasing? I would love for an answer.
    P.S. I loved reading your so well put article 🙂

  • Taylor May 31, 2016, 1:01 am

    P.S.S The reason it was different was since it happened during the day and not at night. Plus I wasn’t on the verge of sleep.

  • Selina Khan June 2, 2016, 1:43 pm

    Hi Taylor,

    I remember when I was working in a hospital many years ago. I was setting up an event in the auditorium and all these spirits shows up. They weren’t happy. Seems they passed away while staying there (it was a complex continuing care centre) and did not choose to take the Big White Light to the Other Side option. I can’t imagine what it would be like if they ever made that place into apartments! There would be lots of activity.

    I don’t feel this was a game. In fact, I don’t think this was spirit at all. I feel that you may have been in exactly the right state brain wave and energetically, and aligned with the right frequency around you so that it changed into a bit of a time slip very briefly. Very cool Taylor! Now if we could learn to do that on demand – wouldn’t that be interesting?

    Glad you enjoyed the article!

  • cath June 8, 2016, 1:28 am

    I hear voices when I am sleepy or falling asleep. I sleep alone and I am a never married, single woman with no children. It is only when I am in a quiet room by myself that I pick up voices. I can be sitting or lying down. I never watch TV. Anyway, I get all different kinds of voices. Usually, I can hear 2 people are having a conversation and I suddenly hear a sentence or phrase from the conversation. I can tell the conversation was already happening. Many times I only hear 1 person engaged in a conversation but I can tell they are speaking to someone else near them. The voices I hear are always different ages, different genders, different races, different emotions, different topics. Last night, I heard a man conversating in a foreign language. Today I heard a woman speaking about her small children quarreling with each other. The other day I heard a man asking a woman questions. It sounded to me like he was interested in her and was trying to get to know her, but she didn’t sound impressed. Other times I have heard very short comments or phrases like “It’s room 208”. Anyway, I dont mind hearing these voices. I never ever talk to them.

  • Deanna Freeman June 14, 2016, 6:54 am

    This morning my child who is 7 woke up to tell me that last night someone was whispering in his ear. Before I could display the look that I felt in my heart, I quickly told him it was Jesus. Here’s the thing that now officially has me scared; I have felt things in the house that we live in for the past 2 years. I have never heard anyone talking to me but I feel eyes on me when I am home alone. Never once has this happen to my child. The house we live in was once investigated by “ghost hunters”. I am a firm believer in Jesus but I also know that there are not so good spirits and familiar spirits. I’m a bit worried now that my child has been hearing things in the middle of the night when everything is silent in our house. Suggestions?

  • Selina Khan June 22, 2016, 8:39 pm

    Hi Deanna,

    I assume that the child did not hear words but just sounds of whispering? I’m going to assume this as I don’t think you would tell your child it was Jesus without first asking exactly what was said in case it was something not very nice. From what you describe, it sounds like you have a spirit in the house. I don’t know if your “ghost hunters” just measured activity or actually did some energetic clearing for you including crossing the spirit into the light, if indeed this is a spirit that is not already in the light. Sometimes people do hear and it’s not a spirit that needs crossing. Other times, it is. You really need a medium who knows how to do a proper house clearing to come in.

    Your child sounds like he may have some intuitive gifts. If this is the case, the house clearing may help. He may still be open to other spiritual experiences. Some children grow out of their gifts as they older.

    All the best,

    For the last 6/7 months atleast twice a week when I am between the awake and the asleep stage I feel like I’m being contacted by many different kinds of people , first time was a women repeating the numbers 67 then as I realised someone was talking she said hello stranger , I had never been so afraid in my life scince then I have had men and women sometimes it’s just a load of jibberish that I can’t make out , I’ve never been touched but I can see movement and then last night I was drifting off and there was a man and women and that was speaking clear as day , the man said , ” your gonna make her panic” and then the women said “excuse me hello” so in my head I say go away when I don’t want to be bothered , my kettle also keeps flicking it’s self on to boil and things get moved about my house , and about a month ago I thought someone had broken in or that my son had got up about 4am as I could hear running throu the house clear as day , I just wanted to know if there was a way I could converse properly and make out the jibberish I hear and if I speak in my head or out loud

  • Amy King June 29, 2016, 12:48 am

    Hello. I have been looking for answers for a while now, and can’t seem to find out what I want to know. I do have vivid dreams of conversation with spirits. Most of the time, I do not know them. The conversation is telepathic. Without words from myself or the spirit/s I’m communicating with. Some nights it’s several. Even in a line sometimes as if they are lined up waiting for their turn with me. I also am very certain that I have dreams of my own past lives. I know the difference between these experiences and regular dreams. Sometimes, (increasingly) I feel an ominous feeling and am completely paralyzed, but fully alert. It’s very terrifying honestly. Basically, I want to know if there is a word for what I am. I can feel them rarely during the day. The feeling is like a density in the air. It doesn’t feel good. Somehow, I know the gender, age, and Era they come from automatically. I feel like if I can get an answer as to what this makes me, I can do more research and learn how to deal with this. Please help! I do feel a sense of urgency due to the dark spirit I know is around me. I’m petrified.

  • Selina Khan July 4, 2016, 4:26 pm

    Hi Mia,

    If this is spiritual and not something else (always rule out health issues first), then you could ask them to either speak clearly or just stop contacting you altogether. You can do this in your head if you like. Spirits communicate on a telepathic wavelength and do not need you to speak out lout to them. Your choice.

    All the best,


  • Wildstar July 5, 2016, 4:12 am

    This has happened several times as loud high pitched bark or chirp when i fell asleep… Today it happened as clear email whisper in my right ear like standing behind me.. but I was laying on couch so obviously not behind me… She said “dead”. Woke me out of nap and I not been home sense. I’m not afraid of spirits . I’m not sure what this meant but it was not my imagination. Any thoughts???

  • Wildstar July 5, 2016, 4:14 am

    Sorry I meant *female not email female whisper

  • Selina Khan July 8, 2016, 3:11 pm

    Hi Laura,

    A couple of things come to mind. First of all, it feels like this woman is a family member in spirit who may be guiding you. I feel that the D names may be ancestors or connector names to her. Are you able to trace your lineage? See what D names come from this if you can – either female or male. It may help you understand who she is to you.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan July 8, 2016, 3:21 pm

    Hi Amy,

    Sounds like you may have a number of things going on – mediumship, astral travel, clairsentience. If you want to research, please know that there are as many opinions out there and approaches as there are books. When you do your research, take what makes sense to you. You’ll get some tips if you read my comments to other people on this blog post.



  • Selina Khan July 8, 2016, 3:35 pm

    Hi Wildstar,

    The high pitched chip was likely a distortion from the transmission through the energy field or it was the spirit choosing a particular frequency range that came across in that kind of pitch.

    The word dead – I wouldn’t put too much on it. If there is something very important for you to know, Spirit (with a capital S or God or your Higher Self or whatever you believe in) will get it to you. Sometimes when spirits come through they say all sorts of things and we often just get snippets of it. She could have been saying “I’m dead” or “I’m not dead” or any number of things.


  • WantstoBelieve August 12, 2016, 1:09 am

    Hello, so i have read your article, and have one slight difference in what is described. I don’t hear random phrases when i hear the voices while almost asleep, i would generally hear multiple voices at once having various conversations i can’t make out, until one loud unintelligible phrase comes through loud and wakes me. That said ever since i was a kid i have had plenty of cognitive dreams, sometimes months in ahead in time do the events take place and i get the deja vu. I have also seen my great grandmother’s spirit the night of her funeral in her home, i was about 9 years old, i always remember her glowing bright gold and me hiding under the sheets…. so quick question, what am I?

  • WantstoBelieve August 12, 2016, 1:14 am

    I have forgotten to mention the “thing” that apparently stalked me and my mother as kids. She had the same experience when she was young of something knocking her out of her bed at night, and i had the same thing at a different house as a kid, felt like someone punched straight up from under the mattress.

  • Kdk September 13, 2016, 1:53 am

    I just heard a voice saying “This man worked as a construction worker and he died here”.After that I felt a shivering sense,like the spirit taking over me and ran out to the other room

  • Bobbie September 13, 2016, 11:01 pm

    Two Sunday’s ago, I woke from sleep with concern for old boyfriend from 40 yrs ago. He visited me while I was sick in 2011 at my home. We stayed in touch via phone up to 2014. I could not get rid of need to locate him. Called his sister and she had not heard from him. That same Sunday, that I contacted his sister, I found he was deceased by reading on face book. On 9/10/16, while in kitchen the video alarm on my phone went off. I looked outside and saw no one..yet, my camera was activated and captured video with a voice that said “Bye Bobbie”. Video reflected picture of my front porch, driveway and street. There were two orbs floating upward on the video. I sent this video to My old Beau’s X-wife and called her. She had just found that the coroner had deemed his death as a murder. I had received several prior security camera alerts with voices on it…and deleted as I thought possibly picking up frequencies from down the street. The voice telling me goodbye and calling me by my nick name. Got my attention. I am devastated. I have had other experiences but none that caught my attention in this way. I have never heard with clarity a voice of spiritual nature this clear..not even those on TV airing spiritual reams. I saved recording and had others listen as I am still distressed by it all.

    Last night as I was rolling over to sleep, I felt this heaviness in the room and pressure and then as if the air around me was vibrating. It made my body vibrate as well and then I heard voices. It sounded like a man and woman having a conversation in my room. It startled me and when I sat up, it stopped. But as soon as I relaxed again, it started again. I couldn’t make out what they were saying. I thought maybe I’m just tired and imagining things. This morning the same thing happened only this time the words wear clear as day. Nothing significant, just as if these people were in the middle of a conversation. My husband walked in and said something and it instantly stopped…the voices and the vibrations. I’ve seen apparitions before and heard voices in my head (more like a telepathic communication) but this was audible and clear. They weren’t talking to me. It was as if I picked up their conversation on a CB radio or something. I should note that all electronics were off and no neighbors around to explain the voices. Could these have been ghosts or something residual? Is the vibration feeling I got typical at all?

    Thank you!!! This has happened to me on multiple occasions and reading this put my mind at ease.

    when my child was 4 years old he would wake up at night screaming that something was trying to bite him, this went on for what felt like forever. he said it would come out of the closet. mind you he has two brothers and two sisters all close in age that shared a room at the time who never seen what he was seeing. we started making sure that the closet doors were shut and we had put stuff in front of the doors that the kids couldn’t move.. when he would wake up screaming the doors would be open and the stuff would be moved, we took him to a physic who had told us that my sons father had bought him clothes from a goodwill store and there was a littlie boy who had died and was attached to those clothes, the physic said that the little boy would come out of the closet and try to bite, pinch, and pull my sons hair. she said we could either get rid of the clothes or burn them but it probably wouldn’t work bc the littlie boy had already attached himself to my son, we ended up burning the clothes and never had any more problems, my son is now 10 and he don’t remember this happening so we don’t bring it up. now that he is 10 we have been in our home for 4 years and every few months he will wake up crying and telling me there are voices 2 to three having a conversation. he is wide awake watching tv and he says that they sometimes shake his bed and make noises in his ear. most recent was lastnight he said it almost sounded like they were snapping their fingers and then they would rattle what sounded like candy wrapper in his ear I went in his room to soothe him and he told me they are scared of me. little did he know im scared of them im not sure how to make them stop everything that was stated above I have tired he ask them not to bother him but they still do. any ideas on what to do from here?
    thank you,

    Hi Brooke,

    You may need to have the house cleared and sealed energetically. If you have someone around where you live, they can come and do it for you. If there is no one around your area or you can’t find anyone authentic, I can clear your house from a distance. There may be other things going on in regard to your son’s energy. When I clear houses from a distance, I also look at the energy of the people living there to see if they are attracting things to them as sometimes it’s the person, sometimes the land, etc. If this interests you, email me and we can discuss how to go about this.


  • Selina Khan October 3, 2016, 4:21 pm

    You are very welcome Lilia! Thank you for reading my blog!

    Take care, Selina

  • Selina Khan October 3, 2016, 4:26 pm

    Hi RS,

    The vibrations you felt are typical for people who are entering into the astral state. It’s a transitionary state where the body may feel vibrations. During that state, you would be more in tune with the planes that we don’t normally perceive – in this case hearing. Not everyone is able to experience what you did.

    Take care,

  • Shan October 14, 2016, 12:03 am

    Nice info. Lately I’ve been trying to focus more and I notice the touching sensation on my leg. I also hear vibrations or something in my ears when people die. I knew exactly when my grandmother died down to the time. It seemed as though the harder I cried the harder it rained. Lately I’ve been hearing my name being called. I attribute it to stress. I just want peacefulness, my research written and love reciprocated.

  • Leonard Jr. October 15, 2016, 4:50 pm

    Hey you said in the passage you have students? If so , if you don’t mind could you give me a few pointers because my abilities have been out of wack lately and I could use some help.

  • Kayla October 23, 2016, 1:55 pm

    I’ve had such similar things happen to me. When I’m very relaxed (usually about to nap) I’ll hear pieces of what seems to be someone’s conversation. I’ll hear a few words from one voice, a word from another voice not in that conversation, and another few words from a third voice. They don’t talk to each other, they seem to be preoccupied with their own worries. The other day I heard a few words of a man stressing about putting something together. It’s pretty interesting.
    At times my mother and I at night will both hear each other call the other’s name, and we get pretty freaked out. I remember waking up to what sounded like her saying my name right by my ear, and she was sleeping. At that moment my phone rang and she asked if I was yelling for her.
    It’s good to know people are having similar experiences, because the few people I’ve told about this have looked at me like I’m crazy.

  • Devin October 26, 2016, 2:33 am

    Ok so I was sleeping on my couch and my girlfriend was in the bed room she told me she could hear some one whispering to me and that I was talking back but I was getting angry she thought I was on my cell phone but my phone was in the bed room I have no memory of this but she said she could hear some one talking to me should I be worried ?

  • Virginia October 26, 2016, 12:57 pm

    My mother was a powerful psychic until she learnt to block it, as she would also dream of events happening and so nice ones. I am 42 and have seen and heard things since a child and dreamt only small things of no real significance. A few years back we moved into a house, my middle son who was 5 started become, the only way I could describe it was drained. I heard a young boy say high right in my ear whilst sat downstairs, then things started escalating. Noises, things being moved, seeing a dark tall shadow of a man, the vibe of the home changed, I became petrified of one room, couldn’t step in it. I confronted my fear but it just got worst. We left after in bed one night the bed physically banged and jumped from an outside wall. After leaving my son got better. I’ve had odd things, like visiting a castle and felt as though I had vertigo only on one floor, been back several times and always the same. When younger I used to hear and see what I call echos of the past. The past couple of months I have had 2 experiences at night, one was startling and my heart racing, it felt like my blanket had been ripped of me and someone was pressing of me, the other was last night, I heard a music box playing adelvice, faint, then a whisper MUM my children were on bed asleep as it was around 3 am, then it was quite. I want to open my abilities up if I have any, but need to be careful as my middle son is very perceptive and has seen things and activities can happen like a bathroom at his nans house, fire alarm went off, it was steam from the bathroom, it was full of it but nothing had been on as was early hours, same night he saw a tall old man, he described him perfectly and it was his great grandad. I don’t want him being drained again. So how do I do it, whilst protecting him.

  • Ashton October 27, 2016, 5:38 am

    I wasn’t just woken up at 4:47am, to a loud voice saying my name. It scared the crap out of me. I have not heard the voices since I have moved into a new apartment, this is the first time and it sounded like a women. In my old place, I would hear the voices more often. It would be a loud yell or sometimes a whisper so close to my ear I would wake up so terrified ! Or sometimes it would yell so loud in my ear…but I forget now If there was any words. But the dreams that I would have sometimes was almost like a man dressed in a leotard suit (no face) and in my dream I would always be in a basement and I was be paralyzed with fear as (he) would come right into my face but not eye to eye ans I remember him reciting something from God… it was scary but also like “what the!?” I don’t know why, I havnt ever bothered to look it up till now. Another time early this year in January. I slept at someone’s house and I woke up in the middle of the night to see a image of a women on the Side of the bed, she was teanalucent and she waved but I couldn’t see her face , but I didn’t feel scared. Later that day I finally had the courage to tell my partner at the time what I seen and he shown me a picture of his grandmother who had passed away… it looked like her… I was then creeped out

  • Selina Khan October 28, 2016, 9:31 am

    Hi Virginia,

    If your son is that open, you may want to start teaching him things like asking for his Great Grandad, Angels and Spirit Guides to help him, seeing himself in white light when he is scared or starting to feel tired. Teaching him to ground his energy through visualization may help as well.

    As for the activities that are physical (bathroom fan, etc)it could either be spirits trying to get your attention or being a nuisance, or it’s also possible that there may be some kinetic activity happening from your son’s energy. I recommend you get a house clearing done to see if that will help quiet things down.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan October 28, 2016, 9:33 am

    Hi Devin,

    No don’t be worried. It’s possible you were speaking to a spirit while in your sleep state. If it keeps happening and bothers you, then you may want to get a clearing done.


  • Selina Khan October 28, 2016, 9:51 am

    Hi Leonard,

    Meditate regularly. Take care of your energy as when your energy is clear and flowing you will be more intuitive. Trust your intuition. The more you trust, the more will come through. Keep yourself grounded – connecting with earth energy helps. These are basics that are good foundations to go back to when you are feeling off.

    All the best,

  • Devin October 29, 2016, 1:53 am

    Thank you it just was strange b.c I am able to sense spirits and usually i know when they are around me at least spirits that are still on earth my mom saw a medium when I was 17 and she told her I have abilities is there ways to tap into my abily more ? I am 23 now and would like to embrace my gifts just not sure how to do it do you have any tips or suggestions for me to raise my vibrations or increase my gifts ?

  • vera October 29, 2016, 11:30 am

    That’s very interesting, but on my condition I hear voices when I’m in between sleeping and awaknes from so many conversations I get on or two words, sometimes from voices I recognize as family or friends and sometimes I don’t, but they stop anytime I focus on them, and as soon as I focus on sleeping again they start and I don’t know if they do stop or no because I sleep. Now this DOES NOT bother me because I hear them as long as I remember yet I’m curious and I would love to know! ❤

  • Kemaria November 3, 2016, 8:41 pm

    Hey , Every time I go to sleep I Hear someone calling my name but it feels like i’m someone else and all of sudden it feels like someone is calling my name from another side. I Have had dreams of my grandpa but it was dreams of me dreaming about when I was a little girl and sometimes , when i’m in my room or walking it feels like someone is following me or watching me . Another thing could you tell me what this mean one night I was in my room and I had a dream of a bright light and someone sitting in a chair , I asked my pastor about it and he said if i ever have the dream again to ask who it is and what do it wants, but how do you speak when you’re dreaming ?

  • Jenni November 8, 2016, 8:05 pm

    My last apartment building was rumored to be haunted (rather, the whole block, But I’m still skeptical.) The first day I moved in, I was cleaning the apartment top to bottom and the storage closet door just opened. (I still believe it could be the wind.. A slant.. Who knows, but it never happened again). Then that night as I was falling asleep I felt the bed sink down heavily right next to me. I had a cat then and thought maybe she was scared being in the new place and wanted to cuddle up, but she felt heavier than ever. I woke up to see her sitting on the floor in front of me looking directly at me with wide eyes. Then the weight next to me lifted off the bed. I was very awake when feeling the weight lift. I had a strong feeling that everything was okay and I was able to fall back asleep right away.
    Another time I felt heavy weight on my chest during sleep and woke up terrified like I was going to suffocate. The pressure immediately went away when I woke up and again, I had a very strong feeling that everything was okay. I was able to fall back asleep right away.
    Another time I heard a man’s voice very loudly in my ear as I was falling asleep and was startled but felt comforted.
    Two other times (maybe 3?) I had orgasms in my sleep from no stimulation at all. (Mind you, I’m not someone who achieves this with a partner during intercourse. Ever.). Cruel joke, right?

    **** insert of when I started seeing my boyfriend in a long distance relationship. Not sure if everyone has only 1 soulmate, but I believe he is a very strong one of mine. We lived over 500miles apart for 3 years, so the longing to be together was very strong.

  • Selina Khan November 16, 2016, 10:45 am

    Hi Kemaria,

    Have you heard of lucid dreaming? It’s where you train yourself to become aware of your dream while you are still dreaming. Then you can interact in your dream consciously. There are many books on lucid dreaming and I believe some hypnosis mp3s as well. There are techniques that can help you to learn how to do this and you’ll find these in the lucid dreaming books.

    Now and again I hear someone talking while I’m asleep, one time I was dreaming and awoke to someone shouting my name no one was home at the time and as I thought about the voice I thought the only person it could belong to was my late nan who passed some years before, also tonight as I was falling asleep I heard someone say “what are you doing” but o didn’t recognise the voice this time

  • Karen Schmidt December 9, 2016, 8:53 am

  • Heidi December 23, 2016, 4:28 am

    Ok so I’m here because I was just having a direct messege conversation on Twitter about a storyline I’m writing , we’re discussing details and I was getting Dozey when suddenly I heard a sharp whisper like in my moms voice in my ear ” go to church Heidi ” I snapped to full alertness and now I’m now scared .

    That was so irrelevant and unrelated to the chat I’m having ! Why did I hear that ?

    My mom is asleep down the hall. I’m frightened what WAS THAT?!

  • Kimberly January 6, 2017, 7:09 am

    I work night shift, so I sleep during the day. Never really had anything paranormal or heard voices before. So this freaked me out quite a bit! I heard the phrase, ‘Kimberly, wake up’ several times in a growl and I felt a menacing presence next to me. The sound was close to sound of pipes, low and harsh, like what you hear come from the pipes in a bathroom after use. But the whispers were right next to me saying the same phrase over and over again. I kept my eyes closed and prayed, and it was only after I could say the prayer correctly did it stop. Then everything went back to normal. I opened my eyes and no one was there. When I went back to sleep I had a nightmare. Again this has never happened before and it was very alarming.

  • akima tendo January 11, 2017, 3:16 am

    As long as the Spirit, etc. is Nonviolence, avoiding aggression, and Nonsinning, avoiding harm to others, there is NO problem. Then it is a private concern between the Mortal and the Spirit, etc. – and a “Dialogue with the Divine”. Buddha, Tao, Gods (Kami), and Goddesses (Megami) from this humble little Japanese shamaness.

  • Jaye January 11, 2017, 3:09 pm

    Hello I have a question as to what I experienced last night. I have lived in my house for 7 years now I was on the couch in my den and began to pray for health for my children and help for my mother while I was praying out loud I started to hear something speaking fast loud as if trying to drowned out my prayer or break my concentration. It sounded demonic not human. I sat up thinking my kids woke up and turned on tv. It wasn’t as loud but sounded like there was a TV on one room away from me. My kids 5 and 7 were asleep I walked into the room nothing it was quite no tv. Later I was in my bathroom and again heard a man’s voice not scary sounding but like the news on the TV was on I walk to the house and checked everything was quiet and nothing was there. Should I be concerned because of The Voice I heard and because I heard it while I was praying? Any advice would be great. thank you.

  • Cathy gunterman January 12, 2017, 1:41 am

    My mother has been hearing someone saying the hail Mary. She work me up at night and sometime during the day. I don’t hear it. I know she thinks I think she is crazy but I don’t. What this means? I told her to say it with them.

  • Jaime January 18, 2017, 4:34 am

    How do we cleanse our home and get an attachmwnt off of me? We have a very active household and our property is full of spirits. Some good some bad.

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2017, 4:29 pm

    Hi Jaime,

    You need to find a reputable medium who does that kind of work. Smudging with white sage will not cross spirits. You need someone who can communicate with them and who knows how to properly cross them over into the light if that is where they are best off.

    For the spirit attachment with you, some mediums who do house clearings can take of this but others don’t do this kind of work. Some healers work with spirit attachments.

    Try to find someone in your area you can work with. If you can’t, you can contact me through email and I can provide these services. It doesn’t matter if you are near my location as I am able to do this at a distance.

    Good luck!

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2017, 4:38 pm

    Hi Jaye,

    If it’s just a one off thing, I wouldn’t worry about it. Sometimes spirits pass through and it may have been someone who was causing mischief. On the other hand, if it continues or if you feel uneasy about it, then I suggest you get a house clearing.


  • Julie January 21, 2017, 10:04 am

    So I was about to go to sleep but then my body started buzzing. I heard multiple voices at once that kind of echoed and I could hear a distinctive female and male one, but the male I could hear more. All i heard was ‘effort’. I don’t know if it’s actually spirits or its just something else. I don’t have anything wrong with me.

  • James January 23, 2017, 1:36 am

    A few weeks ago as I was drifting off to sleep, I heard some voices (as I usually do in the states between awake and asleep, mostly just speaking singular words). I asked ‘are you my spirit guide’?’ To which I received a reply of ‘sure’. Are spirit guides responsive like this? I almost had a sense like I was communicating with someone that wanted to move on in conversation. Any ideas?

  • Selina Khan February 16, 2017, 5:03 pm

    Hi James,

    Let’s say you were standing on a corner and someone comes up to you and says a word here and there to you, but not in any kind of sentence or phrase that made sense. You ask them, “Are you my spirit guide?” and then reply, “Sure”. Would you take them with blind faith because they answered?

    Yes spirit guides can answer. So can any other type of spirit, those with good intentions and those who aren’t your spirit guides. I suggest that you might want to feel their energy and see what that feels like. Then scan your own body and energy and see what the intuitive response is.

    When spirit shows up for me like that I don’t jump to any conclusions. I trust my own discernment of how they speak to me, how their vibration feels (loving, neutral or not so loving), any falseness in the way they present themselves (ex. coming across like they are an angelic being but their emotion comes with impatience).

    The best place to start meeting your spirit guides is in meditation. Then when you are sure of their vibration and know more about them, you will know when it’s one of your guides or not if they come around in a different way.


  • Alyson King February 18, 2017, 10:35 am

  • Ginger February 20, 2017, 2:17 pm

    Last night I woke up around 2am for no reason they I heard this deep voice talking to someone else. Then it ended when I opened my eyes. I was to scared to fall asleep again so I was wide awake when I heard the deep voice man talk again. From what I remember they were using real words but it was jumbled like I could hear them but I couldn’t hear them. I want to talk to them but I dont know how.

  • Kerrie February 24, 2017, 8:19 am

    Hello I just want to ask a question I woke up at 5am I heard a woman say my name clear as day I’ve always heard them but blocked out as scares me I don’t know what to do anyway this morning when I hear her voice my body heated up feel a warm Sensation go through my body I froze and got scared run into bed I just want to know if that’s a sprit trying to connect with me or am I going nuts here I don’t know what’s is normal anymore I told the voice to f off and leave me alone as was in shock but apologise to who ever it was after could u tell me if I’m having sprit incounters or if my higher self is trying to talk to me thanks kerrie

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2017, 3:57 pm

    Hi Alyson,

    From a spiritual perspective, it may have been a spirit guide, a family member in spirit, your mom’s spirit or higher self or even your own higher self. There have been times where people have reported that someone who is alive shown up in spirit and told them something, however, when asked about it they have no recollection. This is because when this happens it’s done when the spirit travels in the astral state and the mind is not aware of it. It’s usually done in the sleep state.

    I feel it was a helpful presence and not done for ill reasons.


  • Shea March 10, 2017, 4:19 am

    I have been searching online trying to get an answer to an experience I had the other night. Then I came across an article you write about breathing at night to hear the voices, and I realized I had done it on accident. My house has never given me any form of a negative feeling, and it’s always felt like home. But I’ve been noticing little things since moving in here. Objects being moved around, kids toys going off at night, and even having my foot tapped three times. Last night I was in the process of going to sleep, but something felt wrong with the way my heart was beating. So I started focusing on breathing. Trying to calm myself down. As soon as I felt like the erratic heart beat had stopped I heard a noise. It sounded like someone let out a breath of air, but the sound was so loud I thought somebody was right in front of me. It honestly scared me. I literally had to sleep with the light on because of it. When I heard the sound it filled my entire body with a tightness, and it sent off warning bells. So of course I had to start searching for an explaination. Little did I know that the breathing exercise I had done to calm myself had actually opened up my senses. I am just concerned with the fact that I have felt this spirit touch me, and the touch felt so real. It wasn’t cold. I felt a warm hand touching me, to the point I thought it was one of my kids. But both times it has filled me with the same overwhelming tightness and alarm each time it has reached out to me. I am concerned that this may be something negative.

  • Lisa March 12, 2017, 1:52 am

    I think I have a spirit around me. A couple of months ago an old man yelled in my ear as I was sleeping “wake up”. I felt a lot of negativity and I was fearful. I’m sure this is a spirit who has bothered me ten years ago. Now the bread keeps ending up on the floor in the dining room. It stopped for a couple of weeks but about an hour ago I heared a loud noise, like a bowl spinning on the floor. I got up and the kid from my egg cooker was on the floor. After I calmed down I spoke to this spirit and asked it to leave us alone. My son is scared and will no longer go into the kitchen alone. A few years ago I felt like I had a visit but it was different from this one. I felt warmth and peace and I was drawn to the corner of the room. But this one feels very negative and I don’t know what to do.

  • Anthea March 12, 2017, 11:56 pm

    I love all of these stories!
    I am quite spiritual and my auntie is a medium – long story short, my husband and I would like to have a baby – have been trying for a while, and stressing about it, and I said to my husband lets just relax and go with the flow and it will happen.

    last night, while I was falling asleep – I heard a voice, believed to be one of my Angels say to me “you will be pregnant by July”!

    looks like they are going to answer my prayers.


  • Genesis March 13, 2017, 12:30 pm

    my mom told me that when she was young,she was sleeping in her room by her self because my dad was at work and since in her room there was a door for the basement she said that the basement door was closed and that in the middle of the night she heard the voice of a woman whisper to her and said “come, come” and when she woke up she saw that the door of the basement was opened and since that day she still does not know what it was. could it have been a spirit and if so was it bad or good?

  • Genesis March 13, 2017, 12:43 pm

    me and my family live in a apartment and my mom said that she sometimes hears a voice of a little girl next to her bed in the middle of the night that is whispering “mommy, mommy” and that she opens her eyes and theres nothing there. what could it be?

  • Elizabeth Acosta March 14, 2017, 4:24 pm

    Early this morning I was in a deep sleep . An here a loud female voice say my cousin name in my ear. I jumped up out of bed like I was having a panic attack.
    I know sometimes when I get like this something is wrong. Can you tell me What this mean.

  • Selina Khan March 16, 2017, 2:36 pm

    Hi Shea,

    It can be frightening when you aren’t used to spiritual activity and not all spiritual activity is negative. If you can get through your fear, I would suggest you feel if it has negative energy. It doesn’t feel negative to me, but it might help you to feel it’s energy next time for your own confirmation.

    Opening up your senses is part of our natural evolution in my opinion. And yes, breathing techniques can do this for some people. Perhaps this will lead you to learn more about it so you can see the gift in it.

    You can always ask your angels and spirit guides to keep anything from interfering with your sleep unless it is for your highest good. You can also get your house cleared if you feel it’s something you don’t want to deal with yourself.


  • Selina Khan March 16, 2017, 2:38 pm

    Hi Lisa,

    In this case, you really need a professional to come in and clear your house. If you prefer a medium in your area, find one that deals with such things. If you can’t find anyone, I offer house clearings in the GTA and distantly.


  • Selina Khan March 16, 2017, 2:43 pm

    Hi Genesis,

    Sounds like your mom has some mediumistic abilities and can tune into different spirits. Some of these may pop by just to be heard as they will know that she can perceive them in certain states, and others may be playing with her. It’s up to her to decide what, if anything, she would like to do about her abilities.

    Take care,

  • Deb March 23, 2017, 1:55 pm


    Days or so after my cousin dave took his life i was lying in bed sort of sleepy and thought i heard a whisper. “debbie, dave”. I wonder if i made it up or was him

  • Selina Khan March 23, 2017, 2:19 pm

    Hi Deb,

    I’m so sorry to hear about your cousin. When spirit speaks to us, it’s not always in a loud voice. Many people have told me that they have heard a whisper in their ear. I have experienced connecting to spirit this way as well, and mostly when I am also in that sleepy state. It’s easier for them to reach us when our mind is not in the way.

    I doubt this was your mind making it up. When our brain waves are in different states we can access other vibrational realms – like the one that spirit exists in. Keep an open mind and ask for him to give you another sign if he can.

  • Selina Khan March 24, 2017, 10:06 am

    Hi Zandile,

    I think it’s a combination of the two. I feel that that you your family in spirit are around and are communicating with you, however, I also feel that your mind may be sometimes influencing what you see and hear.

    The mind is what we all filter our communication with spirit with. Everyone does this – it’s just the way it works. However, when the mind is still and not clouded by emotions or biases, our connection with our intuition and with our spirit family is clearer and so are the messages.

    Sometimes it’s grief that can cloud our connection. Other times, it’s fear or a belief about the spirit world or even ourselves. Even our expectations of what their answer will can skew what we perceive. That’s why it’s good to try to clear your mind and emotions as much as possible when connecting with them.

    Don’t give up and think it’s all in your mind. Work on your own spirituality and growth and it will become even clearer than it is now.

    I heard a clear wisper when I was about to go to sleep and it wisper hex. I remembered the word by thinking it sounded like hexagon. I barley looked it up and was shocked. About 10 years ago I remember a wisper Thathe sounded like Anna or onna. My daughters name is Annika and that’s how I remembered.

    At late night me and my sis hear noise of conversation and lady singing song at late night why?

  • Selina Khan April 15, 2017, 12:10 pm

    Hi T,

    Thanks for your comment. Many people are able to hear other beings, spirits, etc, when their brain waves are in a particular state of frequency. It allows them to access other planes of existence. The brain wave state is typically during a deep relaxation which is a stage of getting to sleep or waking up. Our conditioning or programming is dulled and the multidimensional aspects of your Self are heightened during this time. It is easier to perceive other dimensions where these “unseen” spirits reside at the time.

    It is easier for them to make contact with us when we are in these states if we are not typically open spiritually. Your spirit family and other spirits and beings can do this. It is not always a problem. See if any of the suggestions in this blog help you. It is part of our awakening that the veils are thinning, however, it’s good to have discernment with these situations. If it’s negative or bothers you, you may consider having myself or another medium do a house clearing to see if that helps.


  • Melanie April 16, 2017, 7:29 pm

    Last night I heard a mans voice which was either my ex or my bf. He said “hello”, it was more clear in my right ear, it also woke my dog & she wasnt so comfortable or accepting with it which was completely understandable. She was running about the house barking trying to find the voice, poor darlin. I honestly thought another dimension but could also be astral travel.

  • Ang April 18, 2017, 3:48 pm

    Hi i hope you can help me ..
    My daughter who is 19 has been having sleep paralysis where she can not move talk or even breath .. but she feels the presence of someone or something heavy breathing on her .. but lastnight things got worse.. she was on the phone chatting when she said she heard a demonic voice saying shes gonna burn in hell and hes waiting for her there .. i dont know what to do to help her and why are these things happening to her ..

  • Selina Khan April 20, 2017, 2:47 pm

    Hi Ang,

    I’m sorry this is what your daughter is experiencing. I would suggest you approach this from not only a spiritual perspective but also not to rule out a mental health issue as well. While I have experienced and have been told by my clients and students of similar events, unfortunately it may be a mental health issue in some cases. As I am not a medical or mental health expert of any kind, it would be wise to consult one.

    I can make suggestions to try on a spiritual nature. It is believed that when one enters the sleep state that those who tend to astral travel experience sleep paralysis as part of the process of leaving the body. There is also a medical term for sleep paralysis, however, I’m only addressing this from my opinion from a spiritual perspective.

    During this time, other dimensions or planes of existence are open to us. Just as there are humans that are not nice, there are spirits or entities that are not nice. If one can stay in a neutral strong state or a loving state and tell it to go with real intention and no fear, it usually goes. A house clearing may help. However, your daughter may also want to ask her guides and angels to only let love and light surround her while she sleeps. Sometimes that also helps.

    From a spiritual perspective, these things happen for a higher purpose, usually to teach us something.


  • melissa tevaga April 21, 2017, 5:16 am

    hi, ive had many experiences with spirits, i’ve heard voices, seen shadow people, been touched hundreds of times. but for the past year i have had a spirit who visits me at night, touches me, turned my cell phone on. Just last night i woke up to my right up raised up in the air, once i became awake i puled my arm down and my forearm was tingling, i then heard a creak my my wardrobe and opened my eyes to see a black shadow standing next to my bed. i blinked twice and it was gone.
    i moved house last week and sure enough it came with me, i am a very open person, but i want to know how can i ask my spirit guide who this is that is trying to get my attention. Any suggestions?
    i’m tired of being woken up to feeling this spirit just staring at me, i feel like almost everyday the spirit is there and touches me or at night disturbs my sleep. thanks for listening.

  • Ella April 23, 2017, 7:49 am

    I myself aim a light worker and I help often where I can with psychic readings only since last year I keep away as I was spiritual attacked , a black hooded shadow came at me while I was awake in the evening standing in my garden with child and dog ,and strangely after 3 days the exact way we were removed from my home ,
    I was attained via mistaken id ,child removed then dog , the night before we seen something coming thru the window where my dog jumped at , days before we saw this beautiful football size ball in the bathroom, we tried to touch it and was intrigued but I left it closed the door hoping it will dissolved ,then same evening of the hooded shadow thing ,a black ball appeared next to my daughters bed side ,she slept with me in my bed ,and I told her not to look ,only till next day the problem started with removing us , when 3 month later my issue was resolved I had black shadow around me ,also other people saw that and told me but I ignored and told the shadows to go away no time for such , now I try to get my family back , my cupboard doors come open in the middle of night ,lights smashing , electrical things kept on breaking ,so I done cleansing ,and adopted a stray cat who is always with me if she is not busy hissing at something which is ok as she indicate and tells me of where what is ,now 1st time back home ,a face jumped into my face very fast ,when I woken up pretty scary ,then in my dream was another dream where this huge black shadow drag me and try pull me into a wall ,I prayed and screamed and prayed and it disappeared ,it was real as I had marks on my foot where I was crabbed so I go to church ,my local pastor comes to see me he does not know any of this but he looks worry each time he is in the house ,then has the urge to walk out fast , yes I have a portal in my home but scared to close as I may never see my child back as aim fighting to have her returned ,as when I concentrated to find a solution to close a tiny bit ,I fall asleep with the TV on and in the middle of night I woke up seeing something of a different dimension with pretty cool shapes Triangles ,OMEGA ,alpha ETC I thinking Aim study something pretty high tech ,so went back to sleep checked next morning what strange program it was , but nothing just a normal cowboy film was on the time and Gordon Ramsey as from my child , she is very psychic and when she drew something it was happening , since she is in foster she told me rats biting her right arm well it is the surroundings she is in and I cannot teach her how to deal with it or what she is doing but last week after our contact I drove along lovely weather and this foggy see-through dusk appear next to my car window ,in broad day light and I heard my name saying good news she is coming home , then it disappeared I try to make sense of it , hope aim not going crazy or delusion , ok who whatever it is ,is it talking about my child ?as aim awaiting for her discharge by the judge who was difficult ,due to false names ,false dates etc. anyhow I feel it was ok thought try to make sense of all , then again yesterday I cleansed my home with smudging , and each time I do that strange things do happening ,like last night I was asleep but then woke up hearing one voice a gentle woman’s voice next to me ,who was speaking to someone asking something mumbling …all I understood is outside ? I thought that is strange , anyhow to tired to listening and fall back to sleep , and no I never heard such sweet voice before it sounded angelic ,what is all this ,I never came across of such thought I have many out body experience but not in my awaken to have such strange encounters ..at specially when it comes randomly unexpected when aim not draw any attention to paranormal and concentrate on the real world ,is somehow out of balance how to control such ..

  • Abbigail April 25, 2017, 8:47 pm

    Hi um I am 12 and this woman sprit keeps saying help me then says my name, over and over and if I fall asleep it roars at me or hisses at me I ask the sprit to please leave me alone but I won’t and I feel like I have been touch a lot by the sprit and the doors keep opening a little bit, but after I move from the house with paranormal activity, I hear the sprit again at my new house and it does the same thing, anyway I was wondering if you could help me to ask the sprit why it won’t leave me alone oh and thank you. 😊

  • Selina Khan April 28, 2017, 6:03 pm

    Hi Abbigail,

    Have you told your parents about this? Maybe they can help you while you figure this out. In the meantime, I can give you some tips. Have YOU tried asking this spirit why it keeps coming? Have you asked your spirit guides to help you? Do you visualize love and light filling your room before you sleep?

    From a spiritual perspective, you can ask yourself, what is this experience here to show me? Maybe it’s here to teach you about your own power and strength. Maybe it’s about asking this spirit if she needs help. See what answers you get. And please, speak to your parents about this. They may be able to support you.


  • Selina Khan April 28, 2017, 6:17 pm

    Hi Melissa,

    Try speaking to this shadow spirit directly. Tell it that you don’t want to be woken up at night as you need to sleep. Also, try feeling the vibration of this spirit. Is it a teacher? Is it someone who is just playing? I suggest that you ask your guides to help make the message clear if there is one and if this experience isn’t for your highest good, to help this spirit along or to stop it from bothering you.

    Give it a try and see what happens.

    I woke in the early hours of the morning with a whisper right to my face, was lying on my right side facing outwards of the bed, then was jolted awake as i heard a whisper – could not make out the word – heart was beating soooo fast? Felt fine after the awakening but was puzzled?

  • Genesis May 24, 2017, 9:40 am

    is it possible if someone dies in a home there spirit can haunt the house next to it?

  • Shaily May 28, 2017, 2:16 pm

    Hi Selina

    I heard a male voice 3 months ago. Before I could understand what it was saying, the contact broke. I have not heard that voice since then despite requesting angels to let me know what the message was.
    I could only make out the name of the voice which was not of anyone known to me. I feel it was my spirit guide trying to communicate with me as I'm going through difficult times and need guidance. Also I see lots of repetitive angel numbers and feathers. I need your help in understanding the message the universe has been trying to give me since long. Thanks.

  • daniel May 29, 2017, 7:30 am

    i am boy of 20 plus i never believe in ghosts or angels. I was too confidence in that…. unfortunately I have came to this site for finding the answer as all you…. on 1.50pm night I heard voices speaking around me and I awake up voices still going on ….word and sentences of the voice I never heard of is very different word spoken I think spirit language it’s not joke…. I told my family you are taking too many tension and they laugh at me and joke me… I said don’t, t teach me about human brains …i said the object You See is science the object you don’t, t heard of is not real…there is different world…

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 3:41 pm

    Hi Daniel,

    There are two thoughts that I have around this. One is that science may not yet have the instruments to discern other worlds in the same way that we, as multi-dimensional beings, experience them. The other is that science has found a way to measure and/or interact with these other worlds or dimensions and we, the public, are not privy to it all. I tend to two believe both are true.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 3:53 pm

    Hi Shaily,

    Thanks for your comment. It may be that you only needed to experience the voice the one time and that for whatever reason, you hearing the voice fulfilled it’s purpose. That’s my spiritual take of it. Repetitive numbers and finding feathers is often considered a sign that one is supported and in the flow of alignment. You can break the numbers down to a single digit by adding them up or you can take it for what it is all together.

    For example, my partner and I made two purchases at the same store. The receipt for his bill was 77.77 and mine was 14.14. If we add those numbers together we get 5.5 for both (His – 7+7=14, 1+4=5) (Mine – 1+4=5). 5 signifies change. If we add them up straight across, we get four sevens (28 = 2+8 = 10 = 1+0 =1) and two ones and two fours (1+4+1+4 = 10 = 1+0 = 1). Both 1. One is a number of new beginnings. But in any case, it also indicates that the universe is communicating with us and supporting us on our path.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 4:00 pm

    Hi Genesis,

    Thanks for your question. Yes it’s possible. Spirit is not contained to one place because it’s where they passed.

  • Shaily June 1, 2017, 11:21 am

    Thank you for your response, Selina.
    The reason I’m concerned about that voice is because I could not understand the words it said. I don’t even know who it was as his name was not of someone known to me. The name the voice said was Miguel. Was it my spirit guide or someone else.
    I need help because I’ve been seeing these numbers and experiencing other synchronicities for over 1 and half year and feel that there is something important that the universe wants to communicate to me.
    Besides, I’ve also experienced ringing in ear and very bright white light at the corner of eyes. What does these signs mean?
    Regarding the repetitive numbers, earlier I used to see various combinations, but these days I see 123 , 345 and other consecutive numbers in ascensing order a lot.
    Thanks and Regards.

  • Selina Khan June 9, 2017, 10:33 am

    Hi Shaily,

    If the ringing in the ear is not medically related, then from a spiritual perspective it’s often seen as a sign of clairaudience starting to develop (the beginnings of psychic hearing). Some people experience this as a ringing, popping, or pressure, however, it’s always recommended to seek a medical opinion to ensure that everything is okay.

    Same with the bright white light. Seek a medical opinion first. From a spiritual perspective, some people see flashes of bright light, orbs, or other psychic phenomena. The bright light flashes are typically thought to be spirit (I use this term here to mean other beings in general and not just those on the other side).

    Repetitive numbers typically represent both being supported by spirit or the universe or whatever language you prefer, or that your frequency is aligned with source energy (you are more in the flow). I find that depending on the energy of the day and my own energy, the number patterns may change to reflect where I am energetically.


  • Nathaniel June 17, 2017, 5:00 am

    Hello, there, my story is about when I was in school, 4th floor building, where there are no people, I was waiting for the other members of our choir as we have a practice there, exactly at 4th floor. I am the vice president of the group so I must manage to check their attendance. So while waiting and walking around, I had heard a voice of a little girl, she whispered in my ears, “warning, you will die”. I panicked and went down the stairs. I called my friend to join me upstairs while waiting. After the practice, I went out the school and there, I saw a black cat and I passed through it. I was freaking out and I asked myself if it is a sign or just nothing. All of these happened yesterday, and today is the second day I survived. Can you tell me if it is just nothing or what? Please I need help.

  • Olamda June 25, 2017, 11:43 pm

    This still bothers me after 5 years. I was asleep and I hear a voice that says to me. “If you fall back to sleep you will not remember who you are.” I habe not been drinking nor have I taken any medication but I felt as if I had. I struggled to wake up but eventually I did. It felt as if someone was holding me down to keep me from moving. As I got up, I tried to walk and couldn’t del my leg. The only thing that kept me from hitting the floor was I was able to grab the counter. I was very disoriented. I couldn’t remember my boyfriend but I knew enough that I could trust him. My words were coming out slurred and it was hard for him to understand me. This episode lasted for about 30 minutes. And I was wondering if anyone knows what I could have been experiencing. It still scare me and I hate going to sleep sometimes fearing it will happen again

  • Selina Khan July 5, 2017, 6:59 pm

    Hi Olamda,

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. While some things are spiritual in nature, it is always wise to seek medical attention when something is affecting the body in an unusual way. As in your case, the voice may have indeed been a spiritual experience, however, it is uncommon to hear of such a long period of disorientation and other bodily symptoms after coming out of sleep.

    It is possible to alter perception by being in a different brainwave pattern (or more correctly, our brainwaves change when we access different states of consciousness). During this time we may hear things that are not normally accessible to us when in our conscious state. However, my gut still tells me that there may have been something else going on in the physical body at that time.


  • Steven Hoffmann July 7, 2017, 6:01 am

    Is this sleep paralysis?
    I just woke up from sleep middle of the night the sound of something twirling fast and I look around I can see what was causing the sound on the side of the bed and then I try to reach out to it to stop the sound but my hand goes through it. It looked something white like string or wire twirling fast. Woke up my girlfriend when I spoke loud “can you see it, what is that”? I keep pointing at it and I can see it still twirling but she cannot see it and as I reach for my phone to use the light to show her she still can’t see it and it’s fading away from eyes but I can still hear it then she said there’s nothing there and so I just couldn’t go back to sleep and started researching what I saw.

    It isn’t the first time I experience things like this; things I just don’t understand since I was child. Even sometimes random times in a year I take short naps in a day time before I head out to drive I be woken up by whisper in my ear I cannot comprehend and it felt really like air was in my ear and im the only one home.

    If you would like more information you may ask me anything to find the source.

  • Andy July 8, 2017, 4:19 pm

    I have been laying in bed at night and almost asleep, where you know what’s going on but you still have some dreams, and two nights in a row I was talking to people in my mind. The first night I remember having a conversation in my mind with a woman and all of a sudden it was like I realized I was talking to a ghost and I woke my self up. The second night was exactly the same thing only with a little boy. I never seen faces or anything I was just talking to them. I have seen ghost activity in my life, stuff move without explanation and when I was 6 or 7 I seen shadow people, so I’m just wondering if you think I am actually talking to ghosts or is it just a dream. I would love to know what you think. Thank you

    Hi guys i remember getting a haircut a month before and the same night i went to sleep on my bed.I was in a semi-meditation state and i heard a voice in my left ear saying “Nice haircut”, it was so vivid that i was sure i couldnt have made this out of my head.I woke up instantly and opened the lights but saw nothing,fell back to bed straight after,it still creeps me out thinking about it

  • Rebecca July 16, 2017, 11:37 pm

    What does it mean I fell asleep and I heard my fiance’s voice but he’s locked up and he said my name

  • Selina Khan July 24, 2017, 3:54 pm

    Hi Andy,

    Other dimensions, such as the dream dimensions or astral planes are places where it is possible to connect with other beings or spirits. How clear this is may depend on the synchronization of our brain waves (or our states of awareness or our consciousness) to these planes. If we come at it from that belief, then the ghost, as you call it, is a being that you connected with and not just a dream.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan July 24, 2017, 4:02 pm

    Hi Steve,

    This doesn’t have all of the typical descriptions of sleep paralysis that is spiritually related to the astral travel state as described by those who astral travel. If what you saw twirling was spiritual or energetic in nature, there are many possible explanations of what it might be – everything from etheric energy, a portal, a type of consciousness, etc.


  • Selina Khan July 24, 2017, 4:10 pm

    Hi Andrew,

    Seems a spirit may have approved of your haircut! That’s a first one I’ve heard. I know you are creeped out by it, but as I’ve had so many experiences with this, I think it’s one of the nicer things a spirit could say!

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan July 24, 2017, 4:21 pm

    Hi Rebecca,

    That’s an interesting question! Your fiance is alive yet his spirit or higher self may have connected with you through by saying your name. This is something that other’s have reported as well. Sometimes part of the spirit or consciousness of a person who is still alive can connect with others by projection or leaving their body. On some occasion, the person may be aware of it but often time, they are not.

    Take care,

  • mary Jean July 29, 2017, 8:46 pm

    The strangest thing happened this afternoon. I rarely take naps but today I laid on the couch and started to drift off or I did fall asleep and I heard a mans voice say Hello. I opened my eyes and there was no one around. The sound of the mans voice was clear and almost right next to me ! This happened to me back in 1988. shortly after my mother passed away, I was sleeping and I heard my mothers voice calling me. I awoke and found myself being really cold. I got out of bed to find out the furnace quit working, no heat as it was winter. I hurried to my children and woke them to tell them and I got all the blankets I could to bundle them up to keep warm. They where 10 and 8 years old at that time. I got a furnace repair man to fix the furnace. I believe with all my heart my mother woke me up to let me know there was no heat and take care of the children until help arrived:) Today I do not know why I heard a mans voice say Hello.

  • Brittany August 2, 2017, 12:15 am

    My dreams where I believe I’m being contacted are always very dark and scary. They would play out almost like movies when I was younger. I prayed for peaceful sleep and to be surrounded by angels to shield me. For a long time there were no dreams. Maybe since I was 21 or so. I’m now 30 and they’re slowly returning, but different now. I seem to see small bits and pieces of horrible things, and I can hear the sounds and feel the emotions behind them. But it is not consistent at all. I had a dream that a young man was sitting alone and afraid, before someone entered his bedroom and shot him in the head. A month or so later, something eerily similar happened to a classmate of my nephew. When I woke up from the dream I heard his mother screaming. It was awful. And instead of feeling his fear, I felt the anger of the young man who entered the room to shoot him. Last week I had another dream that a young woman was brutally raped and strangled, she looked like an old friend of mine. I checked on her and she is ok, but later that same day at work I made a phone call to a business across the country and the woman who answered had her name. It shook me up a little. Also when I woke up from that dream, there was a very intense sound of a man weeping in my left ear, and I had feelings of sadness and shame. I’m not sure what to make of any of this, but I’m glad to have come across your article.

  • Vic August 2, 2017, 12:03 pm

    I used to listen to “them”, they would communicate with me, both good and bad but then my aunt told me to stop so I stopped. I know how to stop them , they only visit me when I’m sick, I guess that’s when I’m the weakest.

  • Selina Khan August 2, 2017, 4:54 pm

    Hi Brittany,

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I know that it can be disconcerting when we pick up on things that are disturbing. It may be worth asking your spirit guides or higher self why you may be drawing this kind of experience to you. Also, you may try asking to be shown more positive happenings and only those that are necessary for your own insight or growth when it is more on the disturbing side.


  • Vidyu August 5, 2017, 12:18 pm

    I’m experiencing this sound for 7 years.I heard a voice saying that
    “Male gender in my generation will be suffering” .As it said, a male relative of mine died while other males suffered illness and went operation.I started questioning this as this is not a first time.Previously,a female voice said “Someone will die”.The same happened in my life.It took just a month.As far I noticed,these voices give me exactly a month to witness what’s happening.Why this is happening to me ? I lost my happiness and feel pressured almost all the time.Help me .Is this spirit ?

  • transboyhunter August 7, 2017, 1:15 am

    i’m 14, not that it matters.

    so last night/ 1 hour a go, i woke up by hearing a scary a*s voice, than somthing in my closet was moving. it was around 1:32 AM.

    i was scared out of my mind, i told my friend about it but we couldn’t find anything about what happened.
    i normally play the ouija board but nothing ever bad happened form playing it.

    i do on an everyday bases hear voices, that’s caused from my mental disorder called schizophrenia. my glasses just moved slightly and i said that thing in my head saying “Please if you want to contact me, do it off the ouija board or do it in the morning”

    its almost 3 AM and i’m scared shitless, sorry if that counts as swearing. nothing paranormal ever happened. i mean me and my friends are hunting down the demon named “Slender Man” for dumb reasons.

    my friends normally have paranormal things happening to them, this isn’t my first time but i never had something ever talk to me before. i just remembered a couple other times, i just turned on my tv and turned the light on.

    that doesn’t really matter, but help me out please. im f**cking terrified.

  • APRIL August 10, 2017, 12:40 am

    I’ve been told by two mediums that I possess the ability of claircience. I hear voices all the time but I hear more of what I think is residual. Example, one night around 10pm while I was meditating, I heard two men with what seemed to be a New York accent. I heard the first one clear as day. He said “What did I tell you to do?” The other man’s response I couldn’t quite make out. At first I shrugged it off. But then when I was done meditating, I heard the exact same thing from behind me in my hallway. I started to wonder if it was a warning, as these happen frequently. I made sure my house was locked up and used the bathroom, in the dark, before going to bed. Mind you, I was at complete peace, very calm, and only slightly tired as I still had to get into my pajamas and say my prayers. As I am in the bathroom, in the dark, I look down my very dark hall and see a shadow figure that was wearing a hat and some kind of shaw. I knew it was a man and he stood pretty tall with his head cocked. I was not frightened but more wanted to know what he was doing here. I did have a sudden feeling of impending doom. We stared at each other until I walked into my room. The next day, I was home alone and heard the biggest bang on the wall where I had heard the voices and saw the man. The next few days after that, I wanted to be around noone and in my room where it was dark and quiet. I emerged and went to a bookstore for answers. That’s when I was told not to be afraid but it was me projecting myself to get myself motivated to take care of a matter and to cleanse my home. I have not heard those voices again nor seen the man but I hear other voices from different places and time periods. My question is this, what am I experiencing? I have no way tuned in like I should yet and I can find no history on my home. I’ve started writing down things but usually can’t make sense of it til a later date. What should I do? How should I proceed? And this was the first time that I saw a person. Any advice would help.

    I was in the middle of a very vivid, detailed dream, when I awoke (or so I believe) to my cat, crawling across my pillow- which he often does during the middle of the night, either because he wants to get my attention, or he just wants to go lay in the direction of which I’m facing (I’m a side-sleeper). But this time, it was different. I awoke (or half-awoke) from the dream I was having, felt him (my cat) stepping on the backside of my pillow behind my head, but then, instead of coming around to face me, he stopped behind my head, put his face up to my ear and whispered (more like spoke, but in a low, dark, grainy, raspy voice- of which, I can only really best describe as sounding “demonic”) something:
    He either said, “Do not believe the compliments…” or, “YOU do not believe the compliments…” I’m not really sure which, and I don’t know if it was meant to sound like an observation, a suggestion, or otherwise, because I was unsure of the context, due to the fact that when he started talking, his voice sort of trailed in, as though I had missed part of the sentence or something, and then trailed out after the word, “compliments-” which he really elongated and emphasized, and in which the letter “s,” and the end of the word “compliments,” was really long & drawn out, almost into a hissing sound.
    But what is strange- is that although I was perplexed, confused, and felt somewhat startled by this, I did not necessarily feel “afraid,” or “jump right up out of bed,” or anything like that; I instead proceeded to go right back to sleep, and was immediately back in the dream I had been having prior to this, exactly where it had left off- which had no correlation whatsoever, to what my cat had whispered in my ear… (???)
    I do not know what to make of this. Any ideas??

    A little background: I have been prone to sleep “disorders,” pretty much my entire life. As a child, according to my mother (and only a few I can recall myself), I suffered from night-terrors, to sleep-walking, to straight on what she would describe as “delusions,” to my pre-adolescent and teenage years, where I suffered from Narcolepsy, to my adult years, where my dreams are so wild and vivid, people wonder how I can remember them as I do, and how detailed and elaborate they are! None of these, I was ever treated for, medically, because my mom did not believe in the use of administering prescription medication, for every little “ailment,” or “behavioral problem,” (I was diagnosed ADD/ADHD from a young age- also not “treated” for) and especially not in children, and believed that people should learn to embrace their “afflictions,” and could adapt to overcome them, or grow from them. I have never had, nor do I have, any mental-health issues, and believe myself to be of sound mind.

    Anyways, I hope you might have some insight into this. Thank you for your time!

    I was sleeping last night in a house I had never slept in before. I remember hearing voices. It sounded like several conversations going on at once. As this was happening I thought why are all of these people here? I couldn’t see them. I could only see myself laying there sleeping and the dog that was sleeping with me. I kept trying to wake myself up in my dream but I just couldn’t do. It got to the point where I’m thinking to myself try to touch the dog maybe that will help wake you up. When I was finally able to wake up the voices stopped noone was in the room no tv, no neighbors around nothing, just silence. My heart was racing and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I have had dreams where people who have passed came to me. It is always very bright and normal feeling and calm. This was different. It was like I was at a bus station with multiple conversations going on all at once. I’ve had dreams that have led me to believe it had happened before or some kind of predicting interpretations. I don’t consider myself special or a mediuM an anyway. I guess I would like to know what this is when it happens and how I can become more in tune with it so I can understand better? Thank you for your time.

    Hi Vidyu,

    I have a friend who also receives this kind of information. While it doesn’t bother him as he sees it as a part of life for him, you may try asking your Spirit Guides, Angels, Higher Self, and/or God (Universe, etc), to not give you this kind of information as you do not find it useful, but to give you information that would be helpful to you in creating joy. See if this makes a difference.


  • Selina Khan August 23, 2017, 10:48 am

    Hi Transboyhunter,

    I suggest as you have already been diagnosed with a mental disorder that you consult with your doctor about this. From a spiritual perspective, one thing I can suggest to you is to stop using the ouija board. Sometimes this particular tool can attract lower level vibrations and it’s better not to play with this kind of energy.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan August 23, 2017, 3:55 pm

    Hi April,

    I think it’s great that you are writing things done. That is a good start. And a house clearing would also be a good thing to do. May I also suggest that you start clearing your own energy as well if you haven’t already started doing that? Watch how these experiences progress. You may be able to find references in historical time periods generally rather than absolute connections to something concrete, like your home.

    Some people can tap into other dimensions and timelines. It’s more commonly experienced during the astral state when we are “dreaming” at night, or during meditation when brain wave activity is a particular state that may make us more open to perceiving paranormal phenomena.

    If you choose, the next time you see a figure, you can ask it questions. Who is it? Why is it here? What does it want? Listen to the answers, but trust your gut as to whether the energy is good, not good or neutral. If this is a spiritual experience, keeping the house and yourself clear and protected will help to minimize any lower vibrational activities.


  • Selina Khan August 23, 2017, 4:24 pm

    Hi Danielle,

    I doubt that was your cat. I’ve experienced both things – someone walking on my bed (sometimes it is my cat’s spirit and other times not), and hearing a phrase or a word or two.

    There was no need to be afraid and so you weren’t. The vibration of this entity was not malevolent. It was just passing it’s message to you as it wanted to speak it. It doesn’t mean that this message is for you to dissect trying to find a deeper meaning in it. Usually I see if I can fit the context of it anyway in my life, and then I let it go.

    There are many entities in this universe in all sorts of dimensions – some as evolved, some more, some less. Some of your sleep “disorder” experiences may well have been you travelling to different planes in the sleep state, or entities interacting with you when you were more perceptive at particular brain wave periods, or you just observing without interacting with what you are seeing. All these things are normal spiritual experiences. But I have a feeling you’ve already figured that out 😉


  • Selina Khan August 23, 2017, 4:30 pm

    Hi Stacy,

    Sometimes one can train oneself to stay in that in-between state a little longer. You aren’t fully awake and you are a little still in sleep. In this stage, we are more open to perceiving different dimensions. What you experienced as many conversations is likely being aware of another dimension’s activity in that point in time/space as your spirit was integrating fully back into it’s body or the brain waves were adjusting back into awake state.

    It’s not easy to remember to try to stay in this state or to achieve it for long. I believe it may be possible to do in meditation as well, but one would need to be aware and deeply relaxed at the same time.

    You can always as your Higher Self or check in with your intuition to see if there is a message or more to the experience.


  • Pastor Doug Miller September 12, 2017, 12:53 am

    Hi. just to start out and let you know I don’t think I’m crazy… But several times within the past year, I have been woke up in the middle of the night to either what has felt like touches on my side or arm but the most part is to hearing someone say hey in a whisper in my ear. Its a very breathy hey and just this year alone I have been hearing this while I’m awake. And have seen many small dark shadows like running in my house. I caught my self telling them not to runn in the house because im telling my grandchildren that all the time. I am semi retired I only do weddings and funerals not due to health problems. And have found since I have moved into this house it have became much easier to prepare very beautifully wrote funeral services as to where before it would take days to prep. Not sure if this has much to do about nothing but house I live in now is bout five six yards from a very old cemetary. Thanks for your time and God Bless.

  • nawtic September 28, 2017, 10:35 am

    I’ve been being WOKEN UP by voices for about 10 years now. Especially in the last 1 year. On the good side I have been woken up by whistling, and both times this happened it was very helpful because I missed my alarm for work! In the last year though I has realm started to frighten me. About 6mos back, I was woken up to the sound of the most scary laughter…and I was in fear for about 2 weeks. In the last 2 months I was woken up to the sound of what I can only describe as a woman breathing heavy and fast. Then, 2 nights ago I was woken up to the sound of one of the strings on my bass guitar being played (once). That didn’t scare me like the voices. I normally sleep with earplugs in because of this and have for several years esp the last 3… I don’t hear things while falling asleep…but strictly being woken up by the voices etc. I want to know why me? What does it mean? Im not interested in communication with these beings and I can only hope nothing is here. I tend to think that the whistling for example is maybe my angel? The other stuff…idk. Any input would be helpful. Thx

  • nawtic September 28, 2017, 10:37 am

    Note: This has happened to me in multiple homes and parts of the country I’ve lived.

  • nawtic September 28, 2017, 10:45 am

    PS I’ve had other scary things happen to me in sleep… Being held from behind and unable to move (2x), having something lie down behind me n literally spoon me, a breathy scream in my ear as I’m falling asleep (although I’m certain this was a demonic being)… Just pointing this out…and it as well has been in dif locations…

  • Selina Khan October 2, 2017, 2:23 pm

    Hi Nawtic,

    Why you? Why not you? We are all starting to open up to more of what has been not told exists out there. It is part of the ascension shift on the planet. People open up at different times for different reasons. Sometimes it’s their own energy shifting, sometimes it’s more about the energy of a place allowing frequencies to interact with you when you are in the right state waking up. There are earth shifts, cosmic shifts, inner earth shifts – lots has been happening and hearing voices when falling asleep or in your case, waking up is just one little part of that.

    It’s nice that you have someone getting you to work on time when your alarm clock doesn’t work! LOL!

    You’ll get some tips for what to do about the other stuff if you read some of the comments I’ve already replied to.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan October 2, 2017, 2:37 pm

    Hi Pastor Miller,

    Thank you for sharing your experiences! I find cemeteries are the quietest places as spirits don’t tend to hang around their graves. They may go with you when you visit their grave sites, but there are so many other places to be in the universe than where you were buried, or where your ashes lay.

    How nice that the energies in the house make it easier to compose your services!


  • Jim G. November 19, 2017, 6:00 pm

    I was just waking up when I heard a detached voice of a young girl (unborn). Her words were long and drawn out: “Hiiiiiiiii. My name is Miranda. I am [either working on or looking for] a father. [indistinguishable noise] Hiiiiiii… byyyyeeeee.” I woke up almost yelling, saying “what the” . That never happened again. What HAS happened is, in lucid dreams, seeing…no, experiencing something that happens a week or two later, EXACTLY as I dreamed it…word for word, scene by scene.

  • Jim G. November 19, 2017, 6:11 pm

    Two more things, about the lucid dreams. First, I don’t have a clue how to cause these. Second,in these, I am sitting back, watching myself watch the dream. In one, I had to decide to wake up to go to the bathroom, and missed the last bit. When it really happened two weeks later, I knew every detail until the point where I decided I had to wake up.

  • Selina Khan November 20, 2017, 12:52 pm

    Hi Jim,

    In the astral state there is a different state of space and time. Some people, like you, are sometimes able to see things that are in the future. Sometimes when we don’t remember doing this in the lucid dream or astral state but then in waking state come to that point of happening, we feel it is Deja Vu.

    There are certain techniques that people have used to lucid dream. One of these is to program the mind as one is falling asleep that you will be awake in your dreams. If it interests you, have a look at one of the many lucid dream books out there. One that I particularly find interesting and I would like to do a book review on it for my blog one day is:

  • Fausto Limon November 28, 2017, 3:04 am

    This happened just three hours ago, I was having a nightmare I woke up and I couldn’t move I heard a voice say “ I have someone you love, you’re week and you are mine now” in a deep voice. I don’t know what that was.

  • Cristina E December 1, 2017, 11:24 pm

    Hi, so I recently wanted to get someone’s professional intake on something weird that has happened to me about 3 times in my whole life once when I was about 6/7 years old to the last when I was 23. For some reason I hear very loud conversations in the middle of the night (only I seem to hear them while everyone is asleep) the last time I heard these conversations was less than a month after my brother passed away and that particular day I nearly died in a very bad car accident but I felt like my brother was there for me that day ….anyway just last night my brother came to me in a dream he was wearing a nice suit like he was a best man in a wedding and he said he wanted to talk to my 6 year old nephew which I find so strange ….the night before this dream I couldn’t sleep at all I keep hearing a buzzing noise I thought it was outside it would stop and come back maybe it was idk….please help me understand maybe it’s just a health thing lol (also I don’t recall what the conversations were about I would just sit up and look around and be scared….side note: thanksgiving was last week and I was very emotional one night missed him a lot :(……) thanksssss!!!!

  • Selina Khan December 8, 2017, 2:58 pm

    Hi Cristina,

    Sometimes those that we love come through in our dreams. The dreams that feel extremely vivid or have a different quality often leave us knowing that it was a real visitation and not just the mind wishing for connection. But in any case, it seems that you have a strong connection to your brother.

    In dreams, it’s useful to interpret some things as being symbolic. If it isn’t an actual wedding he is referencing, then it may be a symbol for something else, such as a celebration or uniting of someone or something. If he needs a way to get a message to your nephew or to help your nephew in some way, he will. Spirit can be very resourceful.


  • Meagafrog December 19, 2017, 5:49 pm

    This may have been awhile ago now but its been dawning on me for the past months since. I went to a place with my family and was staying overnight, I was very depressed at the time as I recently had my world turned upside down. I remember having to share a bed with my older sister who got drunk that night, and before we slept i managed to get her to play the sounds of the ocean on her phone to drown out my parents snoring in the other room. A storm from outside blended nicely with the ocean sounds but then like 30 minutes of listening and almost being asleep the most soothing voice I’ve ever heard from a man was whispering. “why are you crying? They’re coming” and would repeat they’re coming so many times i cant count.. I remember turning around and asking if my sister was still awake and she said yes, and i asked if she was hearing what im hearing and she said yes. then she got up and went to bathroom and came back and fell asleep. the next morning she didn’t recollect anything… and im left here alone still pondering what it meant.

  • Unknown December 21, 2017, 8:36 pm

    I woke up because my parents were running outside cause there were animals trying to get in our chicken coop then when I realized what happened I just went back to bed, a few hours or which felt like hours I just heard this one word on my left ear and it was REALLY loud, like someone was next to you, I couldn’t remember what the word was because when i’m sleepy and I get startled I forget, BUT I do remember what it sounded like…it sounded like a little boy….i’m not sure if I was about to dream or if it was really some spirit….well, I hope to get a reply back ^^.

    Oh and btw….animals can sense spirits right? Well, I always keep my dog in my room and I didn’t hear no growling or barking from her also I didn’t feel that scared only startled because I didn’t expect such a loud voice lol

  • Valerie Jimenez January 8, 2018, 9:34 am

    I heard a guy saying where you at and open your eyes in my dream I was fully aware of my surroundings what would this mean

  • Clifford b January 19, 2018, 4:25 pm

    Last night I had one of my many experiences. Typically it’s a dark figure just staring at me during paralysis scarring me half to death, then something bad happens to someone I know or myself. Like car wrecks illnesses or death. So everyone I know heeds my warnings when I tell them to be careful. Last night was different a woman’s voice out of a dark corner of my room spoke to me. She repeated over and over again (the darkness is in you, the darkness is coming) the only thing I felt was protecting me was the light from the tv. I also said a chant I learned as a kid to make them go away since I first starting having these visions”” Do you have any thoughts on this?

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2018, 7:09 pm

    Hi Meagafrog,

    Sounds like you were hearing a spirit that was trying to give you comfort. Sometimes spirit uses electronic things – lamps, cell phones, tvs, etc. to come through to give messages. It can be an easier avenue for them to communicate with us.


  • Unknown January 28, 2018, 8:39 am

    Hello, my cousin been decease for almost 6 years. The last 6 months while I’m sleep i would hear her call my name, never paid it much attention. It’s always right before i wake up. Today 1/28/18, she says “can you hear me?” And i reply “yea.” Before waking up. Idk what to do. Im not confused more so unbelievable because i replied. Please help me! I feel she is trying to communicate with me

  • Vicki February 5, 2018, 10:46 am

    Hi, i being wondering alot lately. I been hearing my name called out alot when i am falling asleep. I read your explaining about it. I just dont understand why its happening to me. When i was 14 i had experience that has always left me think ing alot about it. I was asleep one night then all of sudden i felt like somebody was on top of me. I couldnt move or talk i could move my eyes but not open them it scared me alot. I know how read the tarot cards i have had a clean before done. But when i have a cleaning done i always go limb all over my body. Just curious to know why this happens to me. I got told i can speak to the die but no sure i want to go that far. Really would like your opinion and your help.

  • Selina Khan February 17, 2018, 11:26 am

    Hi Vicki,

    If you read the other comments, you’ll see that many people experience hearing something, like their name being called, when falling asleep. It sounds like you are also sensitive to energy as you feel the difference when someone does energy work around you as in the house clearing. As for speaking to the dead, you don’t have to if you don’t want to. You can always ignore it if you want and some people purposely shut down their abilities through their intentions.


  • Selina Khan February 17, 2018, 11:28 am

    Hi Unknown,

    You can speak to her from your mind at any time. Spirit does hear us. They hear our thoughts when we speak to them. If you want, you can ask her what she wants. You’ll know if it is really her if you calm yourself and feel your gut and your heart.
