There is a magical time between awake and sleep where it’s possible to hear voices of spirits out loud. If you have been in that drowsy almost asleep state and heard a voice when no one is there, it’s likely that you are tapping into the vibrational level of spirit.
This has happened to me a few times. It always intrigues me when it does. The last time it happened, I heard whispering. The time before that, I heard a woman say a man’s name – “Lawrence”.
I noticed that it started to happen more frequently after I began practicing an alchemical breathing technique before I fell asleep. If you would like to tap into this phenomena, I suggest you try it and see what happens.
I read about this technique in Catherine MacCoun’s book, On Becoming an Alchemist: A Guide for the Modern Magician. It’s a book that will help you rethink the way you relate to the world.
Each chapter comes with exercises and interesting discussions. The breathing technique surprised me in its simplicity. However, it proved to be effective. Here’s how it goes.
Relax so that your out breath and in breath are relatively the same length.
Breathe in and don’t focus on anything in particular.
Breathe out focusing on your exhalation.
I breathe in and out from my nose.
As I was falling asleep, I didn’t notice who had said the name. She didn’t feel like family, and I don’t have a Lawrence in my lineage. My feeling is that this is a guide.
She could have also have been a drop-in – someone who was attracted to the light I was creating through this exercise and my intention of wanting to connect to Divine Energy.
When I was reading Catherine MacCoun’s book, I did several of the exercises for a few weeks. I also tried to reorganize my thinking about time, cause and effect. As this went on, I noticed that there was a lot of energy built up around my bed.
It was during this time that I was experiencing more and more physical psychic phenomena. Feeling as if I was floating. Hearing spirit audibly. Seeing through my eyelids.
For me, I love this stuff. I work at something all the time to keep myself growing and learning.
All was good until we had overnight guests and we gave up our bed to a visiting Medium. After he was gone, I noticed the energy that I had built up was gone too! The lovely energy that made it easy to connect to spirit dimensions!
I found out that my friend had noticed the energy and had actually seen swirls of it all over my bed. He cleared it because he didn’t want to sleep in it. Grrrr…
If you try this breathing technique, please let me know how it works for you. You may hear spirit voices as you fall asleep or you may psychically perceive other things. I highly recommend Catherine MacCoun’s book. We all could use a little more alchemy in our lives!
