From time to time I will hear a spirit call my name... has anyone had this experience and do you know why they do that...

I've been told many times not to answer but, I was just looking for someone that has a resonable explanation as to why that happens..

I have heard my name being called when there is no one else around, but it ALWAYS happens as I am falling off to sleep, so I put it down to hypnagogia and forget about it lol.

If its a case of hypnagogia it's not caused by spirits but by the human brain. Its a sort of waking dream...you are not fully asleep but still partially dreaming.

I have had all sorts of experiences as a result of hypnagogia including hearing my name being called out, hearing my mothers voice (just after she died) say 'Goodbye my darling', hearing other people talking in the room when I am alone and one night even waking up to what felt like a slap across the face lol.

The slap certainly felt very real as my face was still stinging as I woke but as I was alone in the room and sleeping at the time I assumed I had either slapped myself or I had dreamed it lol.

I just rolled over and went back to sleep lol.

Another similar instance would be when I was lying in bed awake and alone and felt someone blowing on top of my head. I looked up but there was no one there. As I can sometimes have a tendency to actually start dreaming before I'm fully asleep (complex dreams not just odd things like someone calling me) and I am usually aware that I am dreaming when it occurs, I just put it down to the fact that I must have started falling asleep without realising it.  

I take medication at night and that can affect things too.

It's happened to me at various times, various places, in and out of the house. The calling is vey clear, always female, sometimes using my full names, other times just my "every day name", times happy, times stern, Always varies how close or how far away it comes from. If it ever starts wakin' me up, tellin' me it's time to get up and go to work, I am moving, though I doubt I can move awaay fro it.

There was one time when i was younger and heard my something say my name in my parents room. it was night time (so the room was pitch black) and everyone was downstairs. i went to the bathroom, walked by and heard something say my name in a very deep voice. i was kind of frozen for a second, then ran downstairs.

i wrote a story about it later in school and had to share it with the class. the teacher called my mom, and the school counselor had to talk to me about it  <_<

This happened to me once, I went outside to grab a smoke and a female voice called out my name, I said "what" and then she said it again, I said "WHAT!" but no one was there.  As I made my way back inside I noticed my dog had come out of his dog house, I called him over but he wouldn't come, he kept looking at the lower left side of my body and seemed scared, he would not get near me, I looked down to check if something was there (around me) and saw nothing, I got a little scared and went back inside.  I have also heard that you're not supposed to answer, don't really know what it means or who or what its actually talking to you, maybe it was that you were doing something bad at the time, can't really think of anything else.

I hear either my name being called or "HEY!" all the time when I am by myself or when no one else is around to say anything. Even when the Tvs are off. It's a Disembodied Voice (lol) ;) . Mediums run in the women on my mother's side of the family so I wouldn't doubt it if it was a spirit trying to get my attention.

I once thought I heard a demonic voice calling my name, but it was during a short period of consciousness after I had been asleep. So I attribute it to just something sleep-related.

I have heard auditory hallucinations after missing a lot of sleep. But those voices were in my head, and not outside noise. If you can understand the difference between the two. Did you hear the voice "in your head", or was it an outside noise? A good way to tell what I mean is, say your name in your head then say it out loud.

  • Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak - sometimes it just means you're strong enough to let go.

My sister and I quite often hear a male voice (that sounds uncannily like our dad's) in our house calling our names. I have only ever heard my name called, but my sister says she has heard both of our names and more often than not it's my name being called (she finds this especially weird when neither my dad nor I are home). I have never had it happen to me when I've been asleep or am about to go to sleep; I am always wide awake and we hear the voice at various times of the day or evening. If this wasn't the case, I would put it down to being sleep-related. We have also tried to debunk it as being TV or radio noise, or sounds carrying in off the street, but quite often we can find nothing to explain the voice.

I've also heard that you aren't supposed to answer a disembodied voice, but the amount of times I've called out 'what?' because I thought it actually was my dad kinda makes me think that nothing bad is going to happen.

Good call.
Thats also common in schizophrenia as well. Who knows if theyre suffering from it or not.
