Just Plain, Eerie

So I wasn’t going to mention this, or blog about it, but it’s happened so many times now that I feel like I need to at least write about it once.

I just have to say that until approximately a month ago (maybe two months ago) I’ve never experienced anything like this before, in my life. The first time it happened, I fell asleep on my couch in the living room when I suddenly heard something whispering in my ear, which woke me up. My tv wasn’t on, the windows were closed, and I was the only one in the house. I chalked it up to maybe someone yelling outside and it somehow carried into the house. Interestingly enough, this wasn’t the only time this happened, as it seemed to begin to occur more frequently. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that maybe I was reaching the end of a dream and just woke myself up, but the funny thing is that I couldn’t remember dreaming about anything. So it wasn’t until more recently that the whispers have gotten louder. There was even a time when I felt like something was screaming from inside of my living room and I actually woke up startled. To be honest it sounds audible, but it’s just too difficult for me to distinguish what’s being said most of the time.

I have to admit that it’s really creepy, but until I can prove its something substantial or evident, I have to assume that I’m dreaming these sounds up – especially since I’m usually in some sort of sleep stage when it occurs. The question that comes to my mind, however, is how can I “dream” a voice that wakes me up without having any actual dreams? Oh well… I guess we’ll see if this goes away, or whether I have problems with my ears or something. I hope this didn’t creep you out too much. I find it interesting…
