Do You Hear What I Hear?

Back in the spring of 2019, I dropped my daughter Emma off at preschool for the afternoon and then my youngest and I went to have lunch with my husband. On the drive home, she fell asleep in the car and I had to do the delicate transfer of moving her from the car seat and into my bed where I hoped she would sleep a little better. After I was certain she was fully asleep, I started picking up stuff around the house. There was a pile of old shoes at the top of the stairs waiting to be put away in the garage. In full-on ADHD-mode, I set that as my next task. With the dog by my side (because he is always at my side) I picked up the shoes and headed down the stairs.

Just as I was about to open the door to the garage, I heard a loud “BUMP-BUMP BUMP BUMP” on the floor above me. Both the dog and I stopped and looked up at the ceiling. My first thought was, “Crap, Nora woke up,” because it was LOUD, as if she had slid off my tall bed and landed with both feet on the floor, maybe even stumbled. I turned back up the stairs and sweetly called her name down the hallway as I walked back to her. When I got to my bedroom, she was still deep asleep in the bed with her mouth-open snore and all. Of course I did my due diligence and checked the bedrooms for anything out of place or for anything that might have fallen, but I couldn't find anything. I still have no explanation for this.

The next day, I decided to try and do some EVP sessions. Not like I had ever done anything like it before, but it was calm and quiet and I had just found my son’s digital recorder. I wasn’t even sure if it would turn on because the on/off switch was broken, but to my surprise when I held down one of the buttons the screen came on. Nora was asleep on the couch and I went into my bedroom. I saw the dog sleeping in his kennel so I climbed up on my bed and sat perfectly still. I did two short sessions about two and a half minutes each. I asked a lot of questions like,"Who are you? What is your name? Are you male or female? Do you have a message?" I listened back with the recorder close to my ear and didn’t hear anything out of the ordinary. The only odd noises were the ones I had noted during the recording; simple things like the dog moving or if I had moved my hand while holding the recorder.

With the third recording, I tried something a little different. I encouraged whatever was near to come close and talk into the recorder. I told them to use the energy from the things around the room to speak. About one minute and thirty-five seconds in, I got very real with this thing. I was frustrated knowing that I was feeling something in this house but I didn't have any solid proof. So I said, “Maybe you’re nothing. Maybe I’m making this all up in my head.”

Upon playback, I instantly heard something between those two sentences. I listened to it maybe 15 times on the recorder before deciding that I needed to upload it to my computer with the hope I could enhance it somehow. After a grueling hour of troubleshooting, I was able to get the recording to my phone so I could at least listen with headphones. Immediately after I say the first sentence, "Maybe you're nothing" I could hear a soft and quick, 2 syllable whisper. It sounded different too; not like the movement or breaths I had heard in the previous recordings.

I sent this recording to multiple people simply noting where to play it and asked them to tell me if they heard anything different. Without any other information, they all heard the same whisper and even had the same guess as to what it was saying. I've uploaded this recording below. Feel free to listen to the whole thing or skip ahead to 1:35 to hear it for yourself.
