Recently, I went on a bit of a binge-reading of hearing one’s name called, especially when alone or in the forest/woods/jungle, and how there are many cultural interpretations of what this phenomena is. I have also previously read the “skeptic” or scientific explanation for it. I just wondered if anyone had any stories about this, or perhaps heard stories from elders about it. I find it really fascinating. I have experienced this myself, two times in my life. It was not a case of hearing a pattern with some other sound (have had that happen, too), but distinctly hearing a familiar voice call my name. Both times were really creepy, and I did not answer, which, according to many stories and legends, one must NEVER do. I am interested in personal stories or of stories rooted in cultural backgrounds, told by elders or family.
