Does anyone else hear their deceased loved one's voice ever?

I only heard it once so far.

2 months after my brother died, when I moved back here to the west coast, during the very first week at my new place, as I lay down to sleep (atop a sleeping bag on the floor cuz i had not got a bed yet) about 5 mins later i heard the voice of my brother distinctly say my name as if talking right into my ear.

What was even more peculiar was, he(?) added the consonant "K" at the end of my name and it was a very blunt tone, as my name with the K added at the end is still one syllable.

I am not certain it was his voice, because it sounded like it was a recording playing right next to my ear.

(My bro was a cancer patient who was in remission living in the DC area but the VA hospital got him hooked on hardcore opiate cocktails (300MG!!! oxycodone daily, plus some unknown amount of hydromorphone daily) then cut him off and he died months ago from withdrawal effect on the heart)

Yes, heard my mother one time years after she passed. Clear as a bell I heard my name, that was it.

I suspect it was some neuron or old memory engram that misfired. Other than ghosts that's the only logical explanation I can come up with.

Cool, I dont feel so alone since it was especially your name that was said by your passed mother.

Come to think of it, it was like I was hearing thru a phone near my ear.

Anyways, when I was a teen walking past a 'PYSCHIC' tent, the 3-4 lady workers in there said "whew, id you feel that" looking at each other and agreeing and one of them seeming the oldest and shortes, stepped outside the tent and said 'Are you XXXX?' I was already well past their spot but heard and it shocked me but these legs didnt stop and I didnt turn completely around, just enuf to sneak a peak, the introvert I am =/

My impression back then was that someone was sensing energy from a passed love one, ie, Grandma. I mean, how else would a psychic have known my name and connected it with 'did you feel that' consensus between others.

I've not heard my name called or said by anyone deceased but I have heard a voice I don't recognize! Hasn't happened in a long while and it was more like a very loud whisper as if a person were right next to my ear. Used to really scare me. It happened enough times for me to notice that the voice was androgynous, neither distinctly male or female. I remember running out of my room and asking who called me and my parents would say "no one" and give each other blank looks. When it happened a few times as a teen, they could tell I was really spooked by it because I would be afraid to go back to my room alone.

I heard "phantom sounds" a few times as a young adult but it hasn't happened to me in years now.

I have heard my mothers voice right in my ear but she is several states away and not deceased. A bit later the phone rang and it was she, so I just wrote it off as some sort of strange projection.

Very sorry to read what happened to your brother. Perhaps he is trying to let you know he is okay or you miss him so much, you're mentally projecting his voice as a comfort mechanism? Did it comfort or alarm you?

Out of curiosity I have looked for reading on this type of thing and the explanations run the gamut, self projected, ghostly, mental illness or brain/ear phenomena, imagination, you name it. I've never been mentally ill or done any drugs so I ruled those two out but there is still a lot of explanations and opinions. Gone through a process of elimination but I never figured it out and remains a mystery

Yes. A few weeks after they died. I also had dreams with them.

Also, when I was 15, I had to put my cat down due to cancer. This cat would always jump on the bed at night and lay on my feet. A few days after he was gone I felt him jump on the bed, and lay on my feet. I went to push him off like I always do, but nothing was there.

I like to think that these encounters let me know that they are alright and are waiting for me.

All the deceased people I knew, most of them came to and spoke to me in dreams.

The last time I heard my mother say my name was as I was falling asleep in my bed while she lay stricken with a devastating stroke in the hospital. Clear as a bell.

Then there was the dream I had after she died...

My grandfather and I were very close. He died in November of 1973. The next spring I was living in his house. It was a beautiful spring day and I had the doors open. I heard his voice very clearly calling the nickname that he always called me. I automatically walked to the front porch because I was sure that's where the voice came from. I got to the door before it occurred to me that it couldn't possibly be him.
The only other "paranormal" experience I have is that from time to time the front porch swing where my grandparents spent many happy hours will sometimes be moving as though they are in it even when there is absolutely no wind. I like to think that is their way of giving approval of what we've done with the place.

If you hear your loved ones call your name, say a prayer for them.

A few weeks after my uncle died I heard him call my name 3 times, once using my nickname. I was about 10 years old and told my parents about it, my mother said "that was probably your uncle stopping by to say hello." He's the only deceased relative I've heard from. About a month after my grandmother died the light in my kitchen kept turning on, constantly. I'm pretty sure it was her.

Clear as a a bell, my Gran.
Still hear her now and then a little muffled, but three days after she died, right in my ear. Crystal clear

Love never dies.

Wish I could say that I do, but... No. Would be great if I did though, I always believed she was the reason I was even born, and now I have no clue what I'm supposed to be doing.

I've heard a human voice humming softly about 5 feet in front of my face while I was reading, and several times have heard a quick exhale next to my ear ... like a sigh. I just assume that it's a friend of mine who died in 2009, since it just "feels" as if it's her. There is a pretty simple technical explanation concerning how this sort of thing works, and while it's not that easy to explain, it's pretty easy for the discarnate loved one to pull off (with a little instruction from someone a bit more experienced in that sort of thing).

The weird sounding EVP type vocalization is a manipulation of the data medium that the recorder uses, and this is why EVPs work best if the "white noise" isn't filtered out. This ends up with EVPs sounding either mechanical or whispery or just plain bizarre. When you hear the voice as clear as a bell, and sounding like your loved one, it's a stimuli stream data implant that's been initially attributed to reference your memory of that loved one's voice (which is itself an attributed data set that is part of your brain's memory cloud, as are all such references) and use that triggering attribute to "trick" your perception translation process to then assign that loved one's voice to that implanted trigger as an external sensory stimulation. Your experience of this is that you hear you loved one's voice as if your ears were what sensed that voice. They didn't, but as far as your brain is concerned, they did.

This is why such vocalization experiences are generally so brief, and the loved one doesn't impart any real information. Just making this happen is pretty much beyond the capacity of recently passed people. It takes them getting someone to help with the technical aspects of the process, and even then, the incompatibility of this realm versus that realm makes any communication extremely tenuous and difficult for even the most experienced resident of that realm.

I would imagine that if it happens at all, that the passed loved one really pressed someone over there to help them with it as a favor. For the long time residents over there, it's probably seen as being as helpful as yelling at a pregnant woman's belly to try and communicate with her fetus about the fact that it's going to be born someday and leave that womb. Kind of a waste of time since the poor little thing wouldn't understand, and it's going to be born and leave that womb anyway before too long.

Still, I'm sure that helping some recent cross-overs send a quick message of comfort to their loved ones still "in the womb" probably does a lot to help those folks deal with the emotional aspects of "being born" into their new level of existence. I would imagine that for some the transition is a bit jarring.

Sorry, I have to disagree with you.

Very shortly after my hubby passed (matter of hours) I got a call from an out of state friend. This friend prefaced the call by apologizing for calling at such a odd hour, then went on to tell me they thought they were having something strange going on.

They wanted to ask if hubs was alright, he'd shown up at their place wanting to know why I'd been doing CPR on him? Hubs was pretty surprised! He also told them "you can't do what you think you can!!" and was apparently even more surprised about that as well.

That evening his chair was rocking with his dog in it looking very pleased.

This friend lives 8 hrs from me, and called me before I even had time to begin calling friends to let them know he was gone.

In the next few weeks his lamp would come on next to his chair, the TV would come on by itself in the middle of the night. He'd been a raging insomniac in his last few years.

He also relayed a message to this friend that he was not happy at the funeral home because " it's full of dead people".
Facepalm! This friend had the presence of mind to remind him he had passed over, and unless he could hike himself home he'd have to wait till I could pick his ashes up!! ( they "thought", heck we don't know how this stuff works!!!)

Believe me or not, your choice.

Neither my friend, or myself weren't sure we hadn't just gone round the bend, but he used phrases my friend wouldn't be familiar with, but I would be and in no way did his speech pattern deviate from his norm. He also had some very strong opinions about some of the relatives behavior in the following weeks, also unknown to both myself or my friend. I did find out later thru a third party these things had indeed occurred.

Yep....if it hadn't happened to me I'd be raising an eyebrow as well.

Notice how lots of times people hear these things when they are in that halfway state between awake and asleep? If we could figure out how to pay attention during that time ... pay attention and not fully wake up ... I wonder what journeys we could take in the spirit world?

Yes, have heard my grandmother's voice give a positive message, while down over family problems.

My mother passed away many years ago, I would sure like to hear her voice- but never have. She didn't love me while alive, but sometimes I fantasize that she may have "come to her senses" in the after life and decided she loved me after all. It would be nice to have some hint of that. But no. She went on her way without looking back, I think.

My son died 25yrs ago and several times I have heard his voice say 'mom' with crystal clarity into my right ear (always my right ear) just as if he was standing close behind me ... occasionally it feels like there is a hand touching my right shoulder when he says it.

The last time was a few months ago when I was coming out of my bedroom one morning and walking across the landing to the bathroom ... it was so clear that I actually said 'what' because I thought it was my other son ... but he was up on the second floor at the time and this was right behind me.

I wish, I for the life of me can't remember my mothers voice, its really bizarre as she passed fairly recently.

My brother has had similar phenomenon happen to him, hes said a few times when hes about to fall asleep he hears her sometimes, in that stages between sleep and awake.

I heard my grandfathers voice 3 separate times. First at his funeral, then two times afterwards. All of the messages were odd but only something that he would have said.
