I was talking to a friend of mine a couple of days ago and he mentioned he had Exploding Head Syndrome. My reaction was, “What the heck is that?!” Then he said he will hear what sounds like a doorbell ringing in his head occasionally at night (he also has tinnitus) and I gasped. Two or three times the past six months or so I’ve been awakened with a jolt at night by what sounds like my home’s doorbell being rung with a “ding dong”. My heart races and I feel fear. Now, granted, that makes sense since I live alone and someone really ringing my doorbell at 1 a.m. could be an intruder…but when I Googled Exploding Head Syndrome, I found this Wikipedia page that mentions when people are awakened by an EHS attack, they are often filled with fear.
I am blogging about this here on my metaphysical page because the article also mentions that EHS can be related to out-of-body experiences. My initial reaction when this first happened to me was that a spirit was trying to get my attention…that someone was trying to get me to “answer a door” so-to-speak. I may be correct about that, since when you are out-of-body you can more easily communicate with those on the Other Side. The racing heart/fear feeling would also make sense if I was out-of-body when it happened because if you are out and return to your body too fast for some reason, it can indeed cause that physical reaction. I’ve had clear OBE’s where that happens.
I will say that the doorbell sound was SO loud and clear, I did get up each time to peek out my front door’s peep hole to see if someone was there…and of course no one was there. So were the doorbells spirits saying hello, me having an OBE, or were they simply some brain phenomenon? Hmmmmm….I suspect the spiritual.
