Woke up this morning by what sounded like an elderly gentleman screaming "Woaaaahh!!" - in what sounded to me like a combination of surprise and fear. I was not dreaming either, but rather I was partially awake. The scream was -- inside my head -- , which was the alarming part from my side. It really sounded like is was inside my skull, not like when someone screams in a dream.

I spent all day wondering who the voice belongs to, but can't seem to remember. I'm i my 40s now, and this is the first time this has happened. It was not sleep paralysis as I've had that sleep disorder many times, when the scream happened I was able to stand up & walk around immediately.

What does this mean, stress? Something occult, like a warning or something? Anyone else experienced this?

Hi,

Hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations are not uncommon and are not necessarily anything to worry about at all.

Have a look around the net if you're interested.

Basically, hallucinations during transitioning between sleep and wakefulness.

Further weight is added to this being the possibility by you saying:



It was not sleep paralizys as I've had that sleep disorder many times


As it can be related



An odd experience for sure but nothing to worry about I shouldn't think

So you were asleep when the voice startled you awake.

Thats a subjective ball and chain, isn't it.

Doesn't make it any less 'real' though, either.

a reply to: MerkabaMeditation Don't think too much into this as it may make you paranoid. I get a simular situation about twice a week. I always hear my doorbell and next thing I know I am up on my feet. It happens to alot of people. I personally only get this type of thing happing during the holidays so I believe it may relate to stress. I have found that a glass of wine and a low dose of melatonin help.

It's just a hypnagogic hallucination. In that particular state of mind between being completely awake and asleep, you can have what seem to be auditory hallucinations. It's normal for them to happen from time to time. Just the other morning I was momentarily woken up by what sounded like someone shuffling their feet across my floor. I've also been woken up by the sound of my phone falling on the floor or someone knocking on my bedroom door... None of which actually occurred.
Completely normal.

I can attest to hearing someone whisper my name and immediately waking up as if someone was there. It was like a whisper you hear in the movies. slightly loud, but gentle, and enough to seem very real. No one was there...

I just thought it was cool.

I did a thread on this a while back.
It sounds made up but it has a very weird name...
Exploding Head Syndrome.

If you don't believe me, google it. EHS is real and I get it often as well

oh yeah, thats happened many many times for me. I practice astral projection a lot so it is very common to hear random voices or noises during the hypnogogic stage

I agree, I’ve had that for years. I have sleep paralysis only when falling asleep and I hate it. It takes every bit of strength I have to move a finger and wake up.

The same time the sleep paralysis started I began having EHS, I’ve mainly be woken by the sound of a nuclear explosion, slamming doors and sometimes like the OP wrote sounds of people yelling or talking to me. I never see the nuclear explosions in my dream I just hear it and have a strong felling that’s what it is.

I will say as much as it sucks and scary as it can be it has never caused any problems, just annoying. I would not worry about it and hopefully that helps.

WEll don't mind fu yourself over it, what a terrifying experience, I am sorry for you. The first thing that came to me for you is doing a total cleanse of home and self. Other than that, it seems psychic energy you experienced on some precognitive level which may never be clarified. So the best you can do is to light a white candle, send positive energy to wherever it is needed and trust that you have done all you can to help whomever it was that called out to you. Whether it is past or future there is no time in eternity so just focus your intent on heart/energy and let it go. Best of luck to you.

I had a dream once where I was inside a music studio and the band "RUSH" was creating a new hit song and it was very loud in my head. The music was definitely a hit song and had a unique hook to it, and as I woke up I was still hearing it as it faded out. The real band never made that song of course, but it would have been a hit song I think.

The human mind can generate signals like that which can be heard inside your head in a dream. It's all natural.

I'm with you. I woke one morning to an old man, who seemed to be speaking to a crowd in my head, saying "the boy will not re-enter the dream as there is no incentive.." That was freaky as heck. Although the event freaked me out, I was pissed about him calling me a "Boy." Stupid ego.....

I was woken one morning to the sound of someone walking in the hallway, wearing flip flops. Very distinctive sound. I still heard it after I was awake. I was the only human in the house, with 2 dogs, that didn't hear a thing.
It was weird, but clearly an auditory hallucination left over from sleeping.
If the dogs weren't with me, the sound was clear enough, that I would have been grabbing something to use as a weapon.

Another dream I had was really weird - I slammed the door in my dream, and the dog next to me on the bed, was startled by it.

^this^ is the the best explanation.

I've had sleep paralysis before and it's not pleasant; your eyes don't open but all you see is black and then you get auditory hallucinations, I remember I vivid dream where a girl I had a crush on was being chased by an old man then everything went black and a then I heard a demonic laughter and I couldn't move, I felt...trapped.

I've had other experiences too and most of the time these happens during R.E.M sleep, when your unconscious mind takes the wheel just when your body also wants to take the wheel.

Exploding Head Syndrome.

I suffered around 45 years of my life with that horrible syndrome. It is the most frightening thing one could imagine. Like sitting on an exploding bomb.

I often wondered what caused such a thing, until one day while pondering the horror, I once more thought why? I immediately had an answer in my consciousness saying that I had taken my own life in my last incarnation. That made perfect sense. I couldn't believe the experience and for about 5 years so far I haven't had it happen since.

Sorry about drift.

I'm familiar with this. I've had lucid-like dreams since I was a kid. It's an interesting topic. Sometimes a dream will deeply affect me after I wake up and I'll think about it for some time. I think artists or writers might harvest a similar part of the brain making these dreams, but they somehow do it when they're awake. It's speculation on my part, but maybe drugs are involved? Put yourself in their shoes, they're trying to make money with it. And then there're schizo-spectrum people who can't shut it off or control it, and go mad hearing voices and seeing ghosts. It's like a storm inside us and we've adapted it into our dreams, but like most storms it can potentially unleash havoc.

The most recent example I heard someone shout for somebody else. I woke up and hesitated opening their door for fear I'd wake them up for nothing. Eventually I asked and they said it didn't happen.

A common dream I have is being high on a mountain or on roads with cliffs. I hate heights and fear is a usual element in my dreams. Most of my dreams end up neutral though. It's common enough to have good ones, but not great ones. The great ones are crisp in my memory and they're usually social. I'm usually meeting people and things are exciting. In one dream, I was on a bus and we passed a restaurant named "Peasant Pleasantries". Strange name ain't it. No matter how remote we were, there were neighborhoods of smiling people putting on shows for themselves and visitors. It's like traveling to the north pole expecting a frozen barren icecap but instead you're delighted to find Santa's city with thousands of merry elves always celebrating something.

Glad we all know so much about what is natural. Sleep is still very mysterious. For all, you know you crossed to another dimension and saw through your doubles eyes in his world while asleep. It would explain many odd sleeping things.

Sounds kind of like exploding head syndrome. Sometimes a sudden loud pop, or even a silent burst of light will wake you up. They're hallucinations (auditory and visual). Once I woke up to what sounded like a shot gun going off over my bed. It must've been an auditory hallucination, because my wife didn't hear anything. However, I don't believe its purely a biochemical phenomenon. I get a lot of parasomnia from time to time (around the "witching" hour) and most of it seems supernatural to me.

There are two parts when it comes to dreams. One is warnings; the other other is possibilities. You are trying to figure something out.

Which one do think it is??

It can be Morty trying to tell you something!
