I don't know if it is the right thread to post.

I had an interesting experience last night while sleeping. I don't remember if I was dreaming of something or not but in the middle of the night about 3 pm or so I heard in my mind a voice calling me "Tiss".

It was sudden like a whip, it was echoed, and loud enough to make me wake up for a while.

Could it be a kind of communication with my guide? could it be a first step of communication?

Every night before sleeping I request in my prayers to have some kind of communication with my guide while dreaming. :hug:

Greetings, Tiss,

Since you have prayed for communication, there can be little doubt that your prayers were answered and you were hearing from someone in spirit!

I too have had a similar experience that I have discussed here. As I was asleep and just before waking, I heard the name of a friend very plainly spoken to me. I was then currently involved in a project where I needed some help and hearing the name made me call and it all worked out for the best as he was able to help! I had also been praying for an answer and it was revealed to me, by God, in this way! So, yes, I believe that our angels and guardians are looking out for our best interests and can give us this information during our dream state.

But one must also remember that God speaks to us in dreams! It is Biblical. And He has given His angels charge over us as Psalm 91:11 (KJV) tells us. So, there you are.

If you are currently undergoing some difficulty in your life or have been thinking about a serious matter, your angels are no doubt letting you know not to worry and that they are right there with you!

May you have a wonderfully Blessed day!

I get it all the time. Only a few times have I actually had a small conversation with the voice, and it is just like that- a sudden, loud voice that wakes you up. But it could be your mental voice reflecting back at you, you know, the one you think your thoughts with.

Don't immediately jump to thinking it was communication because if it was not, you are just talking to yourself. I only know this because I have been in that situation before. The line is very fine between reality and our thoughts.

I want to add that I'm still not 100% sure about communication as it's something I have experience with but I'm not totally conclusive about it.
It is Biblical
No, it is not. I don't see how you could come to this conclusion based on what the OP has said.

Personally, I wouldn't dwell on it too much. I'd simply acknowledge the fact that you heard your name being called. Simply say a thank you and move on. Continue asking for communication. Like Verunia said: don't jump to conclusions. I know it's tempting since we want to hear from our guides (I'm still waiting to communicate with mine, too), but in my opinion, there are greater signs to be had from them, and you'll receive them in due time.

So just let them know of your intent to communicate - perhaps ask them to show you the best way to do so.

I've had this experience too twice in the last month. A couple of months ago i did ask to connect with my spirit guide....had weird experiences, freaked out and tried to make it stop til it actually did stop but it wasn't hearing my name thing.

The hearing my name was twice after that incident. I don't know if it was because i was falling asleep at the time so it could've been my mind doing random things but once i heard my full name being said by a males voice. Let's Just say my name is Ciara King. It was "Ciara King" loud as a bell in my ear.
The second time was the night before last. Again, "Ciara King" was said really loudly into my left ear (the ear that wasn't lying on the pillow) but this time it was by a little girl calling me.

I know it does freak me out sometimes but i just blame my mind playing tricks on me as I fall asleep. :)

Hello, Verunia,

As to your last statement, uh, excuse me but it IS! God very much speaks to us in our dreams so that possibility of His communication certainly exists here.

"In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men: and sealeth their instruction," -- JOB 33:15-16 (KJV)

Have a wonderful day!:smile:

I see. I misinterpreted your statement as only being biblical, sorry about that. In terms of bible-ology you are correct but I don't agree with it as purely being biblical.

I had this happen when I was young... But it sounded like an evil voice, so loud! It said, "Stop it, Amelia!!"

I was in the middle of a nice dream, but when I heard the voice, it changed to black, clouds came, and I jerked awake...

First of all, I don't believe in the Bible or the Christian god, and I have heard my name being said before. I think it was my guide or someone else from the other side. My father has heard his dead father say his name before, but it was when he was awake. How fantastic that someone has decided to communicate with you like this. We do have to be careful of our imaginations though, as Verunia said.

It could possibly be from a Guide/family member/friend :smile: It's good to know your request was answered.

Dear all,

Thanks so much for your views!

The one and only who called me Tiss was my beloved, who passed last November.

I explain everything right here: http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/showthread.php?t=10812 (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/redir.php?link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiritualforums.co m%2Fvb%2Fredir.php%3Flink%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww .spiritualforums.com%252Fvb%252Fshowthread.php%253 Ft%253D10812)

It would be nice if I could confirm that was him. It's what I most desire now, to keep his protection in our new life [both halves in different planes], as happened in our earthly one.

I also started trying to contact my other guides, if any, but as you might guess, I am still blind because of the recent change, and I need a little more time to achieve some equilibrium.

All my blessings :hug3:

Look up the term Hypnagogia - it is between sleep and awake.

The phenomenon of the hypnagogic hallucinations which occur in this period are characterized by a slideshow of highly condensed, discontinuous, and bizarre imagery of faces, figures, animals, print and writing. Also accompanying this is often hearing one’s name being whispered, hearing music, and undergoing temporary physical paralysis.

During this fleeting psycho-physical state, people report randomly occurring visual and auditory experiences which are relatively more disconnected and short-lived when compared to dreams characteristic of REM sleep. Hypnagogia is in fact very common, occurring in 72 to 77 percent of the population, many are unaware of the phenomena.

The interpretation of hypnagogic images in some studies have seemed to provide striking examples not only of the existence of various states of consciousness, but also of clairvoyance and telepathy (7). In his book Hypnagogia, Andreas Mavromatis declares that "…hypnagogia gives rise to the insight that there are many realities and that what we call wakefulness merely constitutes one of them…hypnagogia suggests the evolutional possibility of a further expansion of consciousness, and poses a serious question concerning the nature of reality" (7). People have applied many different strategies to channel into the "powers of the hypnogic’ by means of meditation, hypnosis, spiritualism, hallucinogenic drug use, and others. Many hypnogists report states of instantaneous intuition, exhilaration with an inspired poem, mystical insights, and exquisite peaceful joy.


My guides also speak to me clearly in this state of mind.

This has happened to me also. It freaked me out at first hearing my name so loud,waking me up.. however, now whatever it is wakes me up if i have slept in telling me the exact time for example: it is 9:04 and upon wakening it was... and two nights ago a voice said to me in my sleep wake up it is 11:11 and i thought, well even so you don't have to wake me up over it lol, but upon looking at the clock it was indeed 11:11 so i guess it was neat even though i would rather not be woken up!!:tongue:

This has happened to me once. I was asleep and heard a male whisper 'Desi' right into my ear.

I thought it was my husband, but when I looked over he was passed out alseep. I never did figure out what it was...but ever since then I won't sleep w/o my ears being covered by the blankets!

I have had fleeting experiences with this as well. There were a few occasions where I'd hear someone say "wake up" and I'd wake up to find hubby fast asleep next to me. So it wasn't him. I can only guess that it was a guide or perhaps my father or brother--both of whom have passed away.

I've also heard my name called in the kitchen. I can't remember what I was doing at the time but I heard someone say my name. I asked hubby if he called me and he said no.

While I really enjoy having this ethereal connection, I find it frustrating that I don't know who it is! I really would love to know so that I can continue to talk to them. I'd just like to know who I'm talking to! LOL!
