      Someone calling your name as you fall asleep

      Hypnagogic hallucination is episodes of seeing and hearing things as one is falling asleep. These dreams can be frightening and can often cause a sudden jerk and arousal just before sleep onset. For example, you may see yourself falling and awaken with a sudden jerk, just before impact.
      I started to fall asleep one time and as things started to fade I heard someone call my name. This freaked me out, because it sounded like my father (who at the time was asleep). Despite having lucid dreams I wasn't aware of these kind of things, so I was really freaked out. Has anyone else ever been called as they fall asleep?

      I have that happen all the time, most of the time during my afternoon naps. I am semi dreaming about something, and I dream I get hit or something and I Jerk really fast and kick or something and I wake up.

      During a WILD attempt I've heard someone say, "You're doing really well" and also, "You're going to die".

      I have heard these voices all the time since I was a child. I thought I had demons. When I got older I thought I was crazy. Now I realize it's natural.

      I twitch sometimes. Last night, my body was relaxed, and suddenly my jaw slammed shut involuntarily. That was startling. My dreams began soon afterward.

      My hand seems to keep twitching when I am trying to enter sleep paralysis.

      Yeah, that sort of thing happens to me, too.
      I'll be drifting off into a dream where I'm falling or running really fast. Then I'll just unexpectedly kick my legs against the bed or something. I always get startled by it.

      Yes, but if you carry on regardless and nothing happens then you have nothing to fear in the future.

      I had this too when trying to WILD. I heard someone yell my name, it was my moms voice it was so loud and real, I kinda jumped and broke my concentration. All it is Auditory Hallucinations, which happen when you WILD. It's just random thoughts from your subconscious.

      Wow, I guess thats what happens to me when I fall asleep in class or sleeping regularly. I will randomly hear this loud TWANG like someone hit a peice of metal and I will jerk up and awaken. Sometimes just for no reason I will jerk up too. Hmm guess I could have gone into a WILD all those times.

      Last night I used reverse blinking which got me into SP. Despite being really really heavy, if I made a subtle sound like sniffing it would echo and becoming really loud. He he.

      I have had this many times. Or if they don't call my name I hear the voices of many people I know. Usually, they call my name or different names I am known of.

      It is quite fun actually, trying to recognize who is calling you
