I wasn't sure where to put this so if it's in the wrong section Ted feel free to move it.

Anyway, occasionally when I wake up from dreaming and I'm sort of drifting between sleep and being awake I hear a noise. Sometimes it sounds like the noise you'd hear when someone was blowing in your ear. Today it sounded like someone spitting (???).

It only happens when I'm lying down and I've just woken up but still am not fully awake. If I attempt to ignore it it keeps making the sound (every couple seconds) until I finally fully wake up, then it goes away.

This doesn't happen regularly but when it does happen it's very unsettling and it prevents me from going back to sleep, which is what I want to do half the time!

Does anyone have any idea what that sound could be? Am I being messed with or is this a part of myself? By the way it always sounds like it's coming from behind me, no matter what position I'm lying in.

Thanks for any help.

I'm surprised that there is no web site specifically about this, but a quick look indicated that there aren't any.

It's a very common experience, that much I can confidently tell you. I have never seen anything like an adequate explanation, either. As far as I know there is nothing to worry about, beyond the annoyance of the fact itself (I used to hear what sounded like a fire-cracker at the back of my head. Yeesh)

Be interesting to see what folks here come up with!

Thank goodness! I thought I was being haunted(or...hunted? :O ) or going crazy.

Still, if anyone has any theories I'd love to read them.

I actually had this happen to me a couple of nights ago. It sounded like my home theater was stuck playing the first half second of some song. Sort of a static noise on some loop. It kept repeating until I got up to go check on it.

I've had lots of weird things happen to me on the border between sleep and awake.. I wrote about some of them in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5568

chronopolis,

Yes, I've had similar experiences. I wouldn't sweat it.

This morning it sounded like an (extremely)loud, piercing metallic/robotic noise.

*scratches head and shrugs*

ehnnnnnnnnnnnn....

I dimly recall some reference in one of Bailey's (Alice) books ... read this many years ago, that (we're in theosophical world view here) this is the result of the passing of consciousness out of the body through a chakra that was still pretty dense, or contained 'matter' heavy enough to cause a resistance to passage.

Mokay, what the #$%^ does that mean...???

In that world view, there are several 'levels' of 'bodies', each 'vibrating' at a harmonic above the one 'below' it. Chakras supposedly transmit, from one level to another (both directions, as I understand it) some energies while inhibiting others. Their design default is to have a feature which specifically screens the flow of certain energies. If that component is 'burnt away' through meditation, or destroyed or damaged through mechanical means or chemistry, then currents flow. The preferred natural means of evolution is for the lower system to become more sensitive to the finer energies at the next level.... which flow through at any rate.

It all sounds a bit quiant and corny, maybe, but there are various anecdotal tales that support such a view. Piles of psychics report seeing chakras. (I am not a psychic per se, but it is not uncommon, especially with certain people, certain environmental conditions, and certain relative motion, for me to see 'energy' gushing out of a person's forehead or the top of their head.) There are a number of cases of psychics suddenly acquiring their gift after a physical blow to some part of the body, generally the head or the back of the neck.... I think Cayce was one of these, Hurkos another... They get conked with a baseball, pass out, and then wake up reading other peoples' minds and so on.

At any rate, if this is a problem, try willfully locating your consciousness in the areas of various chakras as you drift off to sleep (or aim for OBE, or what have you). Go for center of the head, or the place between the eyebrows, or the heart for best results. The belly chakras can also be used, apparently with dramatic results, but not necessarily pleasant ones. You can also try doing Robert Bruce's energy work applications on the throat chakra (here, presumably, the one that is giving you resistance for now), and that might clear things up.

I used to have this happen a lot as a kid.... I would be drifting off to sleep, and floating... floating... dreaming I was a balloon ... floating, and then:

POP!

and there would be a sound like a 12 gauge going off without the echo. Annoying as hell.

My brother thought it was a riot, though, when I said "I dreamed I was a balloon. Then I popped!" He couldn't stop laughing for hours... so there was some good from it.

^^^^^^
Interesting stuff there. I don't think the theosophical explanation of things is corny or anything. In fact, I have quite a few theosophical books from C. W Leadbeater and I enjoy them.

I'll try willfully locating my chakras as you said but I have been trying to interact with the noise if you will, with strange results!

This morning when I heard the cyborg noise, it actually started off as another noise (the typical blowing in my ear noise) but my dim awareness caught it and said something like "here we go with this sh#! again". As I said that, almost in response, the noise changed instantly from the blowing in the ear noise to something more quiet then BAM! I got that loud metallic cyborg noise, almost like a robot saying something to me.

Lately I've also begun to feel the physical sensation of a slight breeze in the back of my head (even though there's no actual breeze in my room).

Either way, something is up and I have to get to the bottom of it. Maybe the system is testing/challenging my ability to deal with paranormal things and it won't go away until my fear of it subsides?

My hunch is that the old theosophists would say that the fear thing is a separate issue on its own, and there, just a plain old being wary of something that is unfamiliar and thus unpredictable.

They might also say that what is happening here is a transference of the focus of consciousness from the physical to 'the etheric body' (all that wind feel and sound seems to be an indicator for that). In this model, the trick is to take the next jump up (transfer on into the 'astral' or 'devachan') ... hanging out in the etheric is has limited application.

How to do that: some people have excellent results by making a verbal declaration: "Take me to the astral!" or "Take me to a higher level!" and some obliging guide (or some process) escorts them directly. Others find more success in attempting to visualize their destination (this is THE mode of travel in NPMR, after all), but the rub here is that you have to have some memory of where you mean to go in order to specify getting there. Those two methods failing, a third is to zero in on the energy of someone that you know of that knows their way around the realm, and ask them to 'give you a lift': ..."I say, old chap, do you know the way to Astral Bombay ...? I've heard of the place, but damned if I can find it with this map...!" ; "Why, sure, here! Just hook your energy to mine and..." and presently there is a sort of 'foop!~' and there you are. Once you got a solid feel for the 'flavor' if the address, you can go there anytime.

Update: It appears I've figured out the source of the "problem", although I still don't know what the phenomenon is, exactly.

I've had this issue from about January of this year up until late April, a few days before my colonoscopy, when it just magically vanished. Gone. Poof.

I was puzzled for a while but then a light bulb went on. I have chronic fatigue that stems from my digestive condition, so I sleep a lot. Recently, though, I've been getting tired of being tired, so to speak. It actually got to a point where I loathed going to sleep and was desperate to stay awake because I felt as if I was missing out on activities and not being productive as I could be.

After a few months of this (and the stress from the passing my Grandmother in December didn't help either) I start getting a noise in my half asleep/half awake state. That only served to compound the problem as it made me hate going to sleep even more because of the haunting sound of "someone" blowing in my ear or the shrill metallic/robotic "cry" I would have to awake to.

Fast forward to late April and a few days before my colonoscopy. At that point I decided that I was going to get some good sleep no matter what because the colonoscopy prep is a draining, difficult experience and I would need as much rest as possible. After I had this intention, the sound went away.

It appears as though my newfound desire to sleep is what made the sound go away! That lead me to the conclusion that my former hatred of sleeping was somehow causing those strange sounds in my head (I say head because sometimes I sleep with headphones on and I heard the sounds clearly over the sound of the music, almost as if the music wasn't there).

Since then I've heard the sound about 1 in every 20 sleep sessions as opposed to every one but it's usually very muffled and it doesn't repeat over and over again until I wake up.

I still don't fully understand it, but at least I can sleep now.
