Heard My Name Being Called


Just to specify, we speak French in my house so I will include what I heard and then a translation. I live at home with my parents, siblings and a cat. We live in my mom's childhood home (renovated of course, it used to be a bungalow with 3 very small bedrooms and 1 and half baths. We added a level thus 3 bigger bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms). My aunt lived here and so did my grandma before they died (both in hospitals years ago, like over 20 for my aunt and 10 for my grandma. Both on my moms side.) I never met my aunt.

Now that all of the housekeeping is done I can get on with the story (life experience it literally happened yesterday... Still really freaked out by it). My sisters (2) and my cat all left for the cottage. I went to work (I work retail such fun). And my parents both went to a wedding whilst I was at work. It was a 5 hour shift but I still felt really okay. I got in my car did a couple errands and came home.

The moment I walked in the house it felt... Off... It was too quiet. I felt watched somehow even though I knew I was alone. So I walk in felt really off but kept on anyway. I was checking doors and windows making sure none of them were damaged. I then proceeded to make sure the radio was off. I don't know why, I just did, I don't like the radio.

I was still feeling watched so I turned on some lights to get rid of that feeling. That's when I noticed it, some of the upstairs lights were on. I thought it was really weird because my parents, frugal as they are would never have left the house with ANY lights on.

So dumb old me even though I knew I was alone called out "maman? Que fait tu encore à la maison?" (Mom? What are you still doing home). And I got an answer "en haut Lylac" (upstairs Lylac) In my moms voice might I add. And so I naturally went upstairs to greet my mother. Only to find that no one was there. (naturally I should of known they told me they wouldn't be home).

I looked in every room; no one. I still felt watched and to add to it I swear I felt like something was laughing at me. LAUGHING. I have no clue what is going on in my house right now but I am pretty freaked out. So I calmly ignored whatever was laughing at me went downstairs and then turned on the radio and made myself diner and watched a movie on my laptop.

I have more experiences but this is the most recent one.

Apparently in the spiritual world we have a sense of humour and I'm getting the impression from reading your account the humour fairies have struck again, you'd actually responded quite well by calmly ignoring it and just doing what you normally do. Instead of freaking out and praying to whoever for blah,blah,... Why your mothers voice? We leave a certain amount of energy back in the spiritual world and only enter these realities with enough energy to stay psychical, just out of curiosity does your mother have a sense of humour? And also, think of this experience as a positive one... Sometimes our spirit guides give us a little nudge to wake us up enough to follow a certain path. Although I think your account is more related to humour, it may also possible you need to open your mind up little more to spiritualism and this account was an introduction.

Very interesting. Have you or any family members experienced anything in your house previously? You mentioned other experiences, but I wasn't sure if they happened in the same house.

A bit more information and details will help us understand your situation better. Looking forward to your response.

All the best

Hi Kyla -

Thanks for sharing your story with us. This made me remember a time when I came home to an empty house, I was going through some mail and I heard noises coming from upstairs. I yelled out "anybody home?" and I got an answer, "yes" and then some giggling. I made my way upstairs and all along was asking questions, "why are you guys back so soon?", "who dropped you off?", "why didn't you guys call me?". I didn't hear anything back so I went into every room and restroom and didn't see or hear anthing. My kids and their dad came home about an hour later.

Welcome to YGS.

Hi Kyla - that was creepy though, it seems to me, didn't make you feel threatened in any way.

Have you told your mother about this incident?
I don't know if everyone is like me, but sometimes I 'hear' voices in my head and, after asking around, the person whose voice I heard was thinking about me around that time.

It would be a good idea to start a journal and register all the unusual happenings to see if they follow a pattern.

Looking forward to read your next submission.

Thanks for sharing.

Welcome to YGS 😊 I'm curious at the beginning you mentioned coming into your home, and making sure your radio was off, because you don't like it, but at the end you said that you turn it on, I assume to help you drown out any noise that may be heard 😕 did you have something that made you dislike your radio to begin with? I don't understand why you say at first you made sure your radio is off, because you don't like it, but then turn it on, after getting freaked out? Aside that confusion, have you or any of your family members looked on the history of your home? It might help figure out who may be in your home, if a spirit is there. With you feeling like it laughed at you, after impersonating your mother, I would think that it wasn't your past loved ones, as I would only hope that they wouldn't purposely try to scare you. Has anything else happened in your home since then? Thank you for sharing your experience with us, and I hope to hear more from you soon 😊
