It’s an active imagination. Your subconscious creates images and sounds (also called dreams) when you are asleep (REM sleep). If you are not fully in that “mode” (coming out of it), you will “hear” strange sounds. Because the mind can only work with the memories contained therein, these “sounds” are very familiar to you. Sometimes people will “hear” the voices of long departed loved ones, other times they will “hear” their child or pet (especially if that thought was “active” prior to falling to sleep or if something (such as a song or TV show) triggered it.)

I think I stay in REM most of the night. It's an odd thing that has been occurring over the last couple of years. My dreams seem to go on and on. I suppose the feeling that something is "calling me" is part of that- though it's odd and new.

Best Answer

I'm starting to think it has to do with unfulfilled responsibilities...that I'm being called on in the middle of the night because I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. All of the noises seem to be about being "summoned". Even the cat in the litter box, since I always did the scoop and flush whenever she would use it. Still trying to make it all out.

idk, try to stay up for as long as you can maybe. It might pass eventually. But i'm no expert.

Can't do that one. Gotta have some sleep.

Best Answer

Maybe you are stressed?

Best Answer

I'd say that's true. But I've been "stressed" for many years. It's part of being a single mom in my situation. This is new, though I guess it could be a new manifestation of stress.
