Auditory Hypnagogia?

Postby JonSnowLD » 19 Apr 2014 22:15

Sometimes when I'm falling asleep, I hear a random voice talking in my head-usually it's the voice of someone I've spent a lot of the day talking to or listening to, like a friend or teacher. It's within my head, and a lot of the time it's just my stream of conscious but in somebody else's voice-is this auditory hypnagogia? it seems to coincide with my thoughts becoming less logical-not asleep but not coherent streams of thought.

Reading that back, sounds like I'm going mad... I'm not honestly! ;)

Hehe anyway, any insights onto what people think this is would be much appreciated! :D

Ignore it, it's just a dream sound. You have not posted anything remotely Schizophrenic that I've read. Hypnagogia is not a mark of schizophrenia. You were already in the first stage of sleep.

Ok cool, thanks! I'm getting more interested by hypnagogia at the moment and I just wanted to clarify. :)

Haha I sometimes get this as well, or even more often I'll have a hallucination/hypnogogic dream of being back at work or some other setting where I spend a lot of time at, doing a repetitive task. Occasionally I'll get so deep in the hypnogogia and then snap back awake and be like, what? That wasn't real? Because the hypnogogic dreams are so realistic.

That sometimes happens to me too with repetitive tasks-it used to get pretty annoying before I got interested in LDs cause I'd think it was keeping me awake without realising it was actually the process of going into sleep! XD
