For many years now I've been experiencing this. I don't know if it means anything or not, but I am curious about it. It happens at least once a week, often more. I'll be just at that point where I am deliciously drifting off to sleep when I hear a knocking, always 3 raps, that sounds exactly like someone knocking on a wooden door. It seems to be right beside my ear. When it happens I come instantly fully awake again. Has anyone ever heard of this sort of thing? Could it be some sort of sleep/waking thing in the realm of sleepwalking? It doesn't frighten me or anything, just makes me curious.

I have experienced a similar thing; sometimes it is knocking or banging...every once in a while it is a voice.

I think that it is a waking dream kind of situation when you are first falling asleep, similar to a hynogogic twitch, but with an auditory experience.

I would imagine there isn't much to it as it is fairly common...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Yup I recently was dealing with something similar, where every night when I was falling asleep I would feel as though I was being held down and couldn't move, I'd also hear people talking to me and such.  I actually talked to a friend of mine who is a Psychiatrist and he told me all about the the hypnogogic state. He also feels that a lot of alien abductions experinces can be attributed to the state as well but that is better left to another topic.

FluffyBunny & TheOriginalF.........That sounds logical and sort of what I was thinking it might be. I didn't know the term for it, but now that I do I will do some further research. Thanks. original.gif

I've never experienced anything like that, but I would imagine it has something to do with the stage of sleep, whatever it is called, when you are about to fall asleep.  There must just be some sort of factor that produces that knocking in your head.  Do the 3 knocks repeat themselves over a few cycles or is it just one repetition?

  Hi there,

     I've heard strange noises too either right before I fall asleep, or right before I wake up.  One time I really thought someone was crinkling a newspaper by my head, and other times I've heard very clear voices.
  
     I almost wonder sometimes if it's something like the beginning of astral travel.  I was once in a really deep meditative state to see what it was like, and I felt like I was detached from my body, and then I started to hear popping noises and got really dizzy.  Not knowing what was happening, I brought myself back by thinking about my body.
  
     I have read that it's a sign that the soul is detaching from the body.  I would assume that a similar thing might happen when you are just as relaxed before falling asleep.  Whatever it is, it's always a little startling.

It's happened to me a couple of times when I would begin to dose off.  It sounded like a door would slam shut.  I actually think it was the citing (sp)? on my house popping.  It does that when the outside temperature changes.  It was still freaky though.

I sleep in my new bigger room in the basenment and the backdoor is solid wood and every night i hear 3 raps on the door right when i am about to sleep!!! I go over to the door and i look out there and nothing is there!!! And i have a motion sensor light on the other side of the door and whenever i hear the tapping the light is off when it should be on if anything is there! Do you have any clue what it is! This has been happing to me for years now! At the first case, i thought there was a person at my door in the middle of the night so i just pretended to be asleep (my bed is right infront of the door) then it happened again and wont stop! Plz help

Obviously if this many people are hearing it there is somthing happening. How many of you people that hear this are Psychics or Psions. The next time this happens I will try to use Telepathy at the door. To get a Kinetic Signature and recognize it. If i dont... then i dont want to know what it is.
