I have experienced that on odd occasions ever since I was very young.
It's probably the wind.
You maybe communicating on an unknown level, I've done this and the person has turned up for a visit.
Depends where you are, if you are at work or in a mall then someone could have called a name that sounds like yours, if you are alone in a room then that is cause for worry
It might just be a windy day...the wind makes lots of building talk. Besides..it's quite common for people to think they heard something when, they've just spaced out
My family get this often and I hear it at least once a day . I also know my family has a the ability to tune into the spirit for so that's what I put it down to .
People will laugh , well so be it I know what I know is true .
Strictly speaking it sounds like you're describing some kind an hallucination, but even hallucinations are meaningful. I wouldn't race to find paranormal explanations - you'll learn more about yourself reflecting on the psychic implications.
