(Montreal, Quebec. Canada)
I'd like to share my story.
Approximately 3-4 years ago while in bed during the late night hours, I was rather startled when I heard, not so much in my head, but with my ears, a firm but clear male voice call out my name, "Sylvia". The voice did not come across as menacing, in fact, I felt reassured, but quite startled by it all. In fact, I did not feel the need to run and hide, jump out of bed or pull the covers over my head.
My response to what I heard was to answer back by saying, "yes?". Ever since that night, I'll never be able to know with certainty whose voice that belonged to, but can only speculate, even to this day.
