Whispers And Breathing In My Ear


Since the time I turned 13-years-old, I hear voices in my ear at night. They seem to be whispering into my ear. There was this one night where I was sleeping or, more exactly, falling asleep. This was before I played music when I am going to sleep.

Everyone in my family was asleep and the house was dark and quiet. I had my room door closed. My room has a small window which, when it is night time, was pitch black. My room was darker than everyone else's rooms. Usually I leave the curtains slightly open so the light from the moon can show in my room. When I was falling asleep I heard a voice calling my name. This voice I did not recognize and it sounded like a man's voice. It felt like he was right next to my ear. I quickly turned around and saw no one there. At first I thought I was dreaming but I was wide awake. I thought nothing of it and tried to go back to sleep. Then again the voice said my name. I jumped out of my bed and saw nothing. I decided to check around my house and try to see if anyone was awake. I checked and no one was awake; they were all asleep. So I went back to my room and heard nothing. I went to sleep and the next morning I asked my family if they heard someone calling their name. They all answered no and asked me why I asked that. I told them it is nothing to not worry them.

When night came I forgot about the man's voice and was falling asleep. Then I heard someone's breath breathing down my ear. I quickly covered my ear and turned around. Again nothing was there. I laid back and tried to think nothing of it.

Then for the past months I kept hearing a voice calling out my name and breathing down my ear. So after that I decided to put on some music when I go to sleep. The music helps me sleep and not hear anything. Sometimes I still the voice calling my name out even though I have my music playing.

Sometimes the voice changes from a man to a woman, or other times it's more than one voice. Sometimes during the day I hear a voice calling my name when I am sitting or just doing something. I turn towards the voice and if one my family is with me, they ask what is wrong. I tell them nothing and try to go back to my task.

We have the same experience! But mine was just a breathing. I shared my experience "The Breathing of a Spirit".

That was just scary, hearing your name from someone you don't know and you don't even see. 😲

Thank you for sharing your experience! 😁

Thanks for the quick reply! See, that kind of info would have been nice in the story, then I wouldn't stick my foot so far into my mouth. 😆 Good to know it's paranormal, then.
I enjoyed the story, thanks for sharing.

siri-i moved into the house in 1999. I was 6 years old then. I been experiencing paranormal stuff since I was 4 years old. When we moved into this house it was not blessed, But the house I talked about is the same house I live right now with my family. Now I am 19. But when I turned into my teenager year 13, I experienced much more, hence the hearing the voices. Lol, no I had no mental check but I heard from my mother (months later I told them) that ever since she was little she always experienced paranormal. We had the house blessed this time. She told me that she had gifts and that is why I experience these things, since "gifts" can be passed down. 😊. Ever since we had our house blessed it calmed down, but I still experience it now and then.

Not to be offensive or anything, but have you ever had any kind of mental health check since this began? I only ask because the voice is only ever heard by you, directly in your ear, and isn't consistent (being a man, woman, or multiple voices) and you are right around the age that schizophrenia usually presents itself.
Now, if that is completely out of the question, then perhaps it may be paranormal. If I may ask, how long have you been living in that house? You do not mention it in the story, but I got the impression that it wasn't a recent move, as most people that begin experiencing things after a move blame the new residence. That was another thing that had me leaning towards a check up. Again, I'm not trying to be offensive at all, or rude, this was just the first thing I thought of when I saw your age and read the experience.

Respectfully, I swear! (Stealing the 'respectfully' salutations from Rook, for fear of torch-wielding crowds...)

I've had a similar experience to you, and if this keeps on happening to you, just say, "Please go away."someone in my family told me to do that when I have ghost experiences.

this almost sounds to me like someone you know is mentally calling out to you. For instance when my daughter is visiting her dad I hear her say mom when she's not here, but I still hear it and it is her voice maybe you should listen to the voice closely and see if it registers as a voice of some one you know. Hope this helps some 😊

It can be bad if you respond to the spirit, but there can be time where you're overthinking and hear things out of nowhere. And I wonder why you didn't tell your family about the situation? Maybe they can help:)

Have you tried answering the voice with a "Here I am!" Reply?
