Is it normal that I hear voices at night when I'm trying to sleep?

I like to sleep with a fan on, because I like the white noise and because my room sometimes gets really hot.

Although some nights when I'm trying to fall asleep, I'll hear a conversation start up between two people. I can't even distinguish what they're talking about, but I can always hear two distinct voices. Sometimes I'll also hear music, or what sounds like someone narrating something (Like a TV was left on, or a radio)

These voices will sound so real to me, that I think that someone in my house is awake, so I'll get out of bed to see who it is. But every single time, as soon as I sit up in bed and go to turn on the light, the voices stop. Then when I go to lay back down and close my eyes, the voices will start back up again. This prevents me from sleeping sometimes because I keep thinking I'm hearing someone.

This doesn't happen every single night. Sometimes I can fall asleep without hearing anything.

My house is not haunted, it's a brand new house, and there's no other activity to suggest a haunting.

I sometimes hear voices shout at me as I fall asleep. They say things like, "you're not looking in the right place" or "it isn't time yet" or "it's okay, this is the way it is supposed to be." It doesn't scare me as they are usually reassuring.

My suggestion for you is to not focus on them. If it gets really difficult to tune it out, play ambient music instead of the fan.

Do you have pc speakers in your room? I used to faintly pick up random channels from the radio if my speakers were plugged in, turned off but plugged in, best one was a chinese station seriously random, freaked me out at first until i looked it up on google

Maybe try falling asleep in a different place to prove that is nothing environmental (next door neighbours, radio on quiet, ect...).

If you hear the voices where ever you go then you can assume that it has something to do with you.

It is possible to have audio and visual hallucinations when falling to sleep and waking up. These are called hypnopompic hallucinations.

I sometimes wake up and see stuff from my dream (big spider, suited man and stuff like that) but they disappear quickly. I have never heard voices before but I wouldn't worry too much.

If it really bothers you then see someone about it.

ok I have the same thing, tracked it down and it was the aquarium. Then started to hear it in other sounds. Saw a DR. and its completely normal. Its called hypnogogic hallucinations. Its your brain between asleep and awake.

maybe part of ur brain is going into sleep mode before the rest. thous it generate think "conversation" which they say dreams are shaped by everything that happend in ur day, maybe ur brain is replaying conversations u heard earlier that day.

Idk or i could be pulling crap out of my ass, but i heard it before too, but i'ved to be able to tune most annoying things out, like dumb ppl

This may have typos, I am not paying attention.

This happens to me as well and it has for years.

My husband never experienced this until he was married to me and we started living together. I have experienced this almost my whole life.
I was told by a very reputable clairvoyant that some people have the 6th sense they just dont understand it. She told me that I can learn how to control it so I would stop hearing the voices or at least understand them. I have recently told the noises to shut up, but it didnt work. I have slept with a fan on since I was a kid. Now that I am older and know that I am not crazy that it is simply a part of life, that some of us experience and some dont.
You are right, Yandaman, that spirts can follow you. Some of them are your guides and some feel as though you have something that can help them.
My suggestion to anyone who experiences this that you take a lesson in clairvoyance. Sometimes local claivoyants will offer this. You can pick up a good book that will help you understand it more. As you understand it you will be able to choose when to hear it. These voices and be helpful, from what I am told.
I am just in the beggining stages of understanding it.
Good luck to those who choose to do the same.
Wishing you the best!!!

Yes, it's just sensory deprivation causing hallucination. Turn off the fan and try sleeping, if it reoccurs, then see a doctor, dawg.

Interesting... Two distinct voices having a conversation, but only at night when you are trying to go to sleep. Do you ever hear them at other times? How long has this been going on? Are you under a lot of stress right now? Are you conflicted over something in your life that you haven't been able to resolve? Do you have any history of mental health issues, past or present? Has someone close to you recently died? Does anyone else hear these voices?

that is definetley the work of the supernatural realm... My grandfather used to do it to me when i was younger after i had fallen asleep.. he used to strike up conversations with other spirits..

The key: is to get a little more interested.. say íf you got something to say say it a little louder or shut the fuck up...!!!'you will very quickly realise what it is your dealing with.. I think its prob spirits that have or are following you around wherever you go.. thats why the house may not seem haunted..

enjoy! ask for the lotto numbers!!! lol

also don't forget, when you're lying down and trying to sleep, you're not moving around with other noises to distract you


so you can also hear more clearly. so if there is someone making noise it's easier to notice.

Consult a psychiatrist or doctor and talk about it with them

are you sure you're not leaving on anything like a radio or a tv? or it could be people outside, or neighbours, and you only hear them when youre laying down trying to sleep because when your eyes are closed your other senses highten, so you'd pick up noises more

this happens to me as well. As im falling asleep i will hear really loud noises and i will wake up startled or i will hear a conversation going and my room stays quiet when i goto bed so it isn't the t.v. Last night it happened probably around 2 in the morning and it was storming. I'm not scared of storms one bit but i was woke up by the thunder because it sounded as if it was in my ear and it scared me so badly that i was shaking and nearly in tears. Then after the thunder quit i heard a conversation between two people in my head, im not sure what they were saying, i cant remember. i ignored it because i thought i was dreaming but i could tell that i was awake. After that, i heard a voice talking to me and im not sure if it was a female or a male and i dont remember what it told me but it sounded interesting and i tried to talk back to it but i felt as if i was in trouble and it was going to hurt me because i talked back. My house is not haunted because we built it, and im a healthy person, im very young to experience this in my opinion.. everyone thinks im crazy so i just stopped telling people about it.

YES! And it's not always an aquarium or your neighbor's TV. What you are experiencing may surprise you, or maybe not. Ih ave a feeling it's the later. I believe that you are having a spiritual experiencing (and I think you already knew this).
When we go to sleep, our subconscious allows us to "open up" to dimensions, a parallel universe, or win layman's terms, "The Other SIde".
I don't believe you are always hearing conversations from the highest realm, on the contrary. What you may be experiencing (hearing) are passed-on spirits caught in a vortex between our world and what I call Heaven. Many people are trapped in life. They have made wrong choices, hurt others, etc. and are too afraid to be with God so they stay in a flux mode which many call spirits or ghosts. Think about it, if you murdered someone during your life, wouldn't you be hesitant to have "the talk" with God about what you did in your life? Talk about having to "meet your maker - uncomfortable moment!)
SO, to sum this up: you are spiritually sensitive. Probably more than 99% of most people (even though spiritual awakening is possible for all mankind, very few are born with the gift of having a step ahead and being so sensitive to spirit. I live with this myself and if I want it to stop I imagine a door, open, floating above my head and then I picture it closing. By doing this a few times, I think you will notice a difference quite quickly she it comes to your "Night Gossipers".
Oh, #1. Your house is probably not haunted. You are just sensitive and can hear what'a happening in a parallel universe (Heaven, The Other Side, etc.) . Remember, when we are falling asleep we open ourselves up. We don't mean to, but it can't be helped.
You may want to read some books about this phenomena, I really think a good book will answer all your questions.
Blessings,
trisha

This used to happen to me basically constantly. Actually, it still happens to me a good bit. It's normal trust me. I do very well in school (4.0 average) and am actually very popular at my school (senior in college). It happened to me for years not every night but every now and then, actually since I was 9 or 10, and has never bothered me or caused me any issues. As long as you can grasp the idea that its just part of you talking to yourself before you drift off and the things said are metaphorical statements about your life and stuff its actually a good thing rather than a problem.

Great! I've been going thru this a while I moved 4x's then realize it's not the place haunted it's something trying to reach out to me. However, I'm no longer afraid. I believe it's just something spiritual and If that's the what God wants for me I want it too.

you have a gift just like I do :) Don't let anyone tell u ur nuts. You are in touch with something most ppl aren't. I hear them at night too, just don't let them keep u up. they inspire me and are fucking awesome and I do not need help, I have a natural source of inspiration that most ppl don't. so I consider that a good thing and u should 2

One thing I will say that has been helpful and comforting to me at times to me is actually to tune into the experiences rather than shutting them out. I am not saying this in any sort of delusional way, and do not start convincing yourself that you receive any special messages or anything like that, just think of it as part of yourself talking to yourself. Basically, the things that are said, to me at least, are somehow, metaphorically related to myself or my life. Obviously, I would not suggest telling anyone other than family members about this because essentially people often associate any sort of voice hearing with utter insanity. However, I experience this extremely frequently and function quite well. Basically, this happens to me and in much more intensity than what you described nearly every single night except I have accepted the "unreality" of my experiences though arguably one could say that are experiences are "real" because what is real anyways? If something is created by the mind does that make it any less real? I would suggest that you simply accept the unreality of these experiences, tune into understanding what is being said to you by your own mind, and try to integrate these experiences into your life in a positive, meaningful way. This is what I have done and it has ultimately been a good thing for me in a number of ways to become tuned into my unconscious mind

Your dreaming about voices

You could be starting to fall asleep and its ur conciousness taking over, or you could have a sysophrenic disorder(not to be mean or anything)because it can start up as hearing voices especially in a quiet area.
