Alright so this one is a bit of a general question but the community here is so vast in culture and belief that I wanted to ask you guys anyway, even though I’m sure this is probably just a weird case of sleep paralysis or something similar. So, basically, as a kid I’d wake up to my name being called - more mentally than auditory, but it felt auditory (if that makes sense?).
As a kid it would usually be a friend or a parent, but that parent would be asleep or at work, and that friend wouldn’t be anywhere near me. It wouldn’t happen during a sleep paralysis either, it would either interrupt a dream and wake me up or just shake me out of the depths of one of those dreamless sleeps altogether without causing the feeling or sensations that normal sleep paralysis tends to cause.
As I got older this got less and less common for me, but tonight I experienced it again for the first time in quite awhile. I woke up to someone I knew was at work calling out my nickname in a questioning, “You’re in trouble” kind of tone. Wondering why he was home so early I waited for him to come out of his room, only to find out during a much needed bathroom break that he wasn’t even home to begin with.
I wondered what this might mean to you guys, and if you think there’s any spiritual link attached to an otherwise abnormal but plain phenomenon throughout my life. Thanks for reading!
