“Leigh. Wake up.”
I heard this at 4:29 this morning…
A split second before the alarm went off.
Often, I’ve woken up…
Just minutes or seconds before the alarm…
But never have I heard my name being called.
And who was saying my name?

Was it me calling me?
Or some other entity?
Like a spirit guide?
Have I, they, it  always called my name…
And I just never heard before?
Or was this the fist time?
It’s known we humans have an inner clock…
That operates without us having to do anything.
So? Was my inner clock waking me?
Did it not trust the alarm on my clock would work?
And then I got to wondering…
If my inner clock is communicating with me…
Maybe I can communicate with it…
Maybe at night…
After I say my prayers and before I fall asleep…
I can tell my clock…
"Slow down!
You don’t have to age me so fast.
Or how about rewinding a decade?
Or even just a few years?"
After all, it’s my clock…
Shouldn’t I be able to control it…
Rather than it controlling me?
What about you?
Ever hear voices in the night…
Or anytime of day...
That you can’t identify?
Who or what do you think it is?

Always, Em-Musing

No voices, but I hate waking up a few minutes before the alarm goes off. Nothing worse than thinking I still have hours to sleep, but I don't.

Ha! I think everyone would like to convince their inner clock to stop keeping time:) Yes, I've heard voices calling my name either right before I wake up or fall asleep. I think it means different things depending on whose voice it is. When it's someone in my family- father, sister, etc...I make sure to give them a call that day to see how things are going.

I love that. Yes, I've heard a voice a number of times that I could swear was a real voice, telling me something I need to know, like it's time to get up. Wouldn't it be fantastic to know exactly how that works??

Sadly, no voices, though sometimes I think it might be nice to hear one; then I'd have someone else to talk to besides myself. And I definitely like the idea of being able to talk to my inner clock cuz I'd be telling it to slow the heck down! This is not a race to see who gets to the end first!

Such a bummer to wake up a few minutes before the alarm. Two hours is awesome, however. :-)

I heard a radio-like voice coming through my car window while driving. Spooked me a little.
