    Have you ever experienced the phenomenon of walking/talking in your sleep,with zero awareness &..

    no memory whatsoever of having done so? (with no involvement of alcohol or medications) After being told, did this seriously concern you? Example: Apparently, answering the phone in my sleep, I've been told several times, of a complete phone conversation I had with NO recollection at all. Spooky.

    No, they have never happened to me that I know of but my brothers often appeared to talk to each other in mumblings I could not understand when we were young.

      Hi Elijah!  I have heard of 2 people who seemed to be actually carrying on a conversation with each other in their sleep!  Now, that's wild!!  Thanks for stopping by.

    I have not experienced this, but both of my boys did when they were young, like ages 5 through 10 years old. Once we lived in an apartment complex close to the swimming pool, and we had them install a chain lock up close to the top of the door so a kid couldn't unlock the door and wander outside and fall into the pool while we slept.
    Their father worked at night and got off at midnight. One night around midnight while I was waiting for him to come home. I heard a noise in the kitchen. Upon investigating, it was my 5-year-old son peeing in the trash can. I didn't awaken him but I directed him back to his bed. The next day he didn't remember the incident at all. He had missed the turn into the hall bathroom. He was teased all his life about that. His father said that he and his older brother both had sleepwalked when they were young. They all eventually outgrew it.
    In my metaphysical training, we were taught that this was common among astral travelers. Paula, are you an astral traveler at night? If you don't know, then maybe you should investigate that possibility. Girlfriend, lot's of things are happening right now to folks because we are at the beginning of a new age of discovery.

      MzB..Yes, friends of mine thru the yrs relayed stories of their children wandering sleepily thru the house! I think it's because kids R sooo wound during the day, it takes a while 4 them 2 slow down. Me, an astral traveler? YIKES!  ?? Maybe?

      Maybe. AT is a lot more common than you might think. My sister was an avid AT as a child, and both my boys did. I'm an empath and not an AT. They tell me it's fun and nothing to be afraid of. We're weird, though.

      MzB..I have 2 chuckle at this possibility, since in my normal wakeful state, I'm not much of an enthusiastic traveler! I spend a lot of imagination power, coming up w/ reasons Y I can't go...need 2 stay home!!  The irony of astral travel?

      My sister did that, but the pantry was in the kitchen and nowhere near our bathroom. She didn't believe it happened when we teased her the next morning.

    Frequently, but I have a form of Narcolepsy.

      Penny, Interesting! I've been curious about Narcolepsy. Have U written about UR experience w/ it? Looks like I'm checking UR site to C ! Question. Does UR diagnosis forbid U from driving or any other activities that may pose a danger?

      Mine is fairly mild and does not include cataplexy, so does not preclude me from driving, but I don't write about it. I prefer writing about the things around me rather than myself, though I should do one about the dog breeds prone to Narcolepsy.

      Penny, I was narcoleptic until I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and put on a CPAP. It has really helped me. None of my business, but do you use one?

    Yes, when I was either 24 or 25 this happened to me. I fell asleep on the couch and my boyfriend and brother came home maybe a couple hours later. From what I can recall them telling me, one or both of them tried to wake me up but I didn't budge until a short while later. I, then, stood up, eyes open, ran in the kitchen, was calling my brother Commander, and I even jumped in the air a few times. I think they led me back to the couch after that. I have never had any recollection of any of these things happening at all. I really thought they were pulling my leg but they continued to tell me that it happened. I bugged them about it for weeks because I thought I would break them down and they would say it really never happened but neither one would break so I think they were telling the truth.

    There were a few times I have done some strange things while sleeping. I vaguely recollect this happening,  but could just be because my mom and grandma told me about it laughing the next day. I didn't believe them at first, but then had a sort of fuzzy recollection of it.  I was quite young. I got up and went to the front door pounding and screaming on it. They tried to console me, but all I kept saying was,  "I want to go home!" and of course,  they kept telling me that I was home. So I repeated our old address and said I wanted to go there, still pounding as if I were being held captive. We'd been in our new home for over a year at that point,  I think.

    Before we moved to that house, I told my mom's cousin to leave our home. She was pregnant with my brother at the time (he's adopted because she couldn't take care of him). I have no idea why I was angry with her. I assume she must have scolded me in my dream for something. I got up behind her as she slept on the couch and shoved her off of it with my feet. I was asleep. They told me I did that, but I don't know why.

    Here's the kicker one. When I was a freshman in college I carried on a conversation with my roommate and we didn't really realize it until we started chatting about our dreams the next morning. She was a soccer player so she was in a gym.  She was asking something about the weights. But in my dream I was in a grocery store with my sister and I kept asking my sister what weights she was talking about because our didn't fit the setting we were in. I was confused.  My roommate became frustrated with me not comprehending and finally shouted "The weights you lift!" I recall now what else we said to each other in our weird sleep induced conversation. But I wonder if that was like incorporating real life sounds into our dreams... Like the time I started dreaming of a tornado because the sirens were going off for the monthly test back where I grew up. That was funny,  too,  because myvsister came running into the room calling out that there was a tornado and I jumped awake with my heart pounding.
