Ghosts Calling My Name While Sleeping


I moved to a new apartment in a different state. A couple of nights I'd hear a man's voice calling my name. Twice this happened at 3 in the morning, and after that I woke up everyday for 3 months at the same time. I'm the kind of person that when I go to bed I don't wake up until that alarm clock rings. It could thunder and I wouldn't even wake up. Then I started to find things missing, and appear in places that I normally don't put them. I used to say out loud, "Who are you? What do you want? Do you need anything? I can't help you if you don't tell me."

I spoke about this to a local Priest and told him my situation; I asked him if he could come by and bless my apartment. After the blessing of my apartment, he told me it was a mischievous ghost; harmless. It has been 4 months and I hadn't had any problems until last Saturday at 6:30 am. I heard my name being called twice. May I say that I live in a 3 story apartment building on the 3rd floor, second floor has been empty since before I moved in and the first floor tenants were away for the weekend.

I got up and checked the door and out the window. No one was around...

I'm not afraid, just don't like to be called when no one is answering me.

So far nothing else has happened.

I agree with what 4-d said. My mother always told me never to answer a spirit or give it a name, this can attach it to you and trust me from experience they do not like to go away so easy. Besides you TRUELY NEVER KNOW WHAT YOUR DEALING WITH. It may say it is one thing and be another such as a demon or a spirit looking to do you harm. So my suggestion is act like you don't hear it and hopefully it will get the hint and go away.
God bless and Good Luck

I have had this, and have just told the spirit's I need sleep, I will talk to you tomorrow, and sure enough they return, sometimes all they need is someone to talk to. The best thing to do is say hello, and let them know you know are there.

It's interesting how the spirit activity always occurred at 3AM. Yes, that is the most common time of day for activity, and I've heard of hundreds of experiences that happened at that exact time. The spirit that you are dealing with sounds harmless to me, like the priest said. Also, blessings are not always guaranteed to work. Sometimes the activity subsides and then comes back, as it did with you.
Good luck and best wishes! ❤

My mother also told me not to answer if I hear my name called and no one is around.
She said that is like inviting the spirits to use you as they please.

Have you tried making a recording when you call out, asking if you can help? Many of today's cellphones have voice recorders built in. It usually only takes a minute or so to work out how to access this function, and they make excellent, portable, make-shift recorders.

If you have a computer with a microphone you can use Windows' Sound Recorder program (found in Start-Accessories-Entertainment), or whatever program comes with the Mac, to try making a localized recording if you persist down this road.

Personally, I prefer to tell them off;)
Just call out and let them know you do NOT appreciate being woken up that early. Actually you just reminded me of an incident I feel I need to report here.

Wow, interesting story. I have had someone wake me up by calling my name in the past. Interesting that you mention 3am - the commonest time for activity to occur in the night, if I recall correctly!

I had a similar thing happen to me. My mother always said not to answer strange calls because mischievous spirits enjoy the attention and continually bother you because of the riser they get out of you. Good luck with your ordeal! 😁 Aloha-4d
