Whispering My Name

Posted on August 23, 2011

Now I have to say that I am afraid of everything before I go on with my story. Witnessing this has me terrified although it may be nothing to whoever reads this.

My boyfriend and I had grown used to sleeping together so when he had to leave town for a little while we slept on the phone together. He was gone for a few weeks and every single night we would sleep together on the phone.

One night we were talking and then I started to fall asleep, almost instantly. I wasn’t even tired, I just randomly fell asleep. I don’t know how long I was asleep. When I woke up to the sound of someone whispering my name. It wasn’t my boyfriend’s voice, or any voice I have ever heard. It was very very deep. So I woke up in a panic and couldn’t move. I just looked around and could see nothing odd.

My boyfriend was awake and started screaming toward me. He was accusing me of having someone over. He told me that he heard some “man” whispering my name for the last 20 minutes. He also informed me that he heard a lot of moving around. I hadn’t moved and couldn’t move. I woke up in the same position that I fell asleep in. After convincing him about what really happened he came home.

The next day I debated whether or not I should tell anyone else. I felt like no one would believe me or I’d just be told it was nothing. So I finally broke down and told my mom. After she laughed in my face I told her I was going home since I didn’t get much sleep.

On the third day, I got a message from my mom saying she needed to talk to me. So I took my lunch at work and she said the same thing happened to her. She thought she was dreaming and she heard someone whispering her name in a very deep voice. She said then she woke up and had her eyes closed and she still heard it.

I haven’t heard anything lately. But it was too weird and awkward to just ignore.

      yeah it pretty much has me terrified. But like I said i’m afraid of everything. And the fact that my boyfriend heard it too!

    Hi yu Whispers

    Was this experience you and your mum had in the same house, or two different places?


  3. BekkieLassy says:

    Just the fact that you heard the voice in your ear meening it was next to you the hole time, who knows how long and you cant see it. makes it so much scarier!
    I can understand that you were scared to death coz i would have been.

  4. Carri says:

    Do you and your mom live in the same house. If so your house is haunted.

  5. Dean says:

    Is this the first time something like this has happened to you?

    Have you done anything recently like attended a seance, used a ouija board, or gone to a psychic?

    Did you get anything like a figurine, mask or talisman around the time that this happened?

    • whisperinmyear says:

      well in college like a year before this happened, we thought our dorm room was haunted so I went out and bought a ouija board. And I still had it at my apartment under my bed. I no longer own the ouija board and I thought that would have something to do with it but my mom went through the same thing in a different house.

      • Dean says:

        Thanks for replying. Ouija boards are bad news. People can “play” with them and have nothing happen. Others use them and get what you have. Basically you gave a demon (or demons) permission to mess with you by inviting “spirits” to communicate with you.

        This is isn’t going to stop until you make them leave. It will most likely get worse. If it does it will escalate to growls and snarls, seeing dark figures, being held down in bed unable to move, and it gets worse from there.

        I don’t know what your spiritual/faith background is, but I would ask a pastor or priest to come and do a house blessing. Also, revoke any invitations in the name of Jesus Christ. (This only works if you have accepted Jesus as your Savor.)

        If you don’t believe in God or have any kind of relationship with him, I think you ought to seriously consider it. The fact that this stuff is happening to you is evidence that the supernatural exists. Including God.

    sometimes the spirit world moves in and among us and sometimes they want to communicate with us. Sometimes it is just to be funny or sometimes mean and all that in between. It is a normal thing. We are very spiritual human beings. Time is not simple and on layer. Time is very layered. However, remember if they are not trying to be hurtful to you, you should not be afraid. Maybe they are just around for their own reasons or to protect you for the time they are there.

  7. Buddy says:

    I have strange disembodied voices whispering my name and the names of the people who sleep over in my room. The first night I realized those whispers/voices I was a bit scared and curious. But in time I got used to it and at times I’d just lay in my bed listening to it and wait for the voices to say something else rather than call my name. Many of my visitors would tell me about this and I’d always tell them not to worry about it because it seemed harmless. Even though it seems harmless I dare not try to talk to it because it may end up into something really nasty.
    We cannot be sure if this is a haunting especially if you never had any strange occurrences in your house before. And since it is not clear whether your experience and your mother’s occurred in the same house, it is pretty difficult to conclude that the house/s is indeed haunted. If those incidents happened at two different places, I think there is something that is trying to get both of your attentions. If it happened in the same house, it is possible that you have a stray ghost. Stray ghosts don’t stay very long in one place, unless they find the place suitable.

    Something similar happened to me once i was in bed trying to sleep i heard someone say “hello” (i was alone at the time) and that was it i freaked out for a second worried for half an hour and went back to sleep.

    whispers has anyone close to your mum obviously a male passed away obviously she is the link because im guessing her experiance was first it might be just some one letting you know they are there dont fear unless it physically hurts you our voice in his house plays tricks on my husband when i would go to he would hear call his name so him thinking it was me would come to see if all was ok in one night happened 15 times think she has a sense of humor lol other times i have heard my name being called thinking there was someone at the door and after searching the house no one about there would be a knock at the door thats happened on 4 occassions i just thank her now have no idea who it is but she has had every opertunity to bring harm to my family and never done so.

    I had something like this happen to me once, but I knew the voice. It was my momma. My fiance and I had taken his grandparents to Florida for a vacation and my mom and dad were back home in Michigan. We were all in the living room watching tv when I heard my name being called in a loud frightened voice. I sat up ( I was laying on the floor) and looked around. I asked if anyone else heard my name. They all shook their heads. I thought about it for about 15 more minutes then decided to call home and ask if everything was ok. My mom answered the phone and I asked if anything was wrong and she immediatly asked me how I knew somthing was wrong. I told her that I had heard her yell my name and she told me how my brother had come home from a playing job (musician) and was walking in circles and couldn’t speak. She was so scared that she called for me forgetting that I wasn’t home. It was amazing that I heard her and new she needed me. My brother found out the next day that one of his so called friends had snuck something into one of his drinks when he went to the bathroom. We were all thankful that he was able to make it home safely and we never had anything to do with his friend ever again.
