Well I thought it might be god calling him only because my husband has missed going to church for 5 weeks because of working on weekends, he makes up for me not being able to work because of my disability. My husband usually goes every weekend before that and use to be an alter boy as a child so I said to comfort him maybe it's god calling you because you haven't been able to go to church lately
Makes me think of when Samuel (from the Bible) was a little boy and living in the Temple. He heard Eli the priest calling him, and came running. Eli did not call. It turned out that it was God.

I wouldn't allow anyone to scoff at what you and your husband have seen/heard. You might consider finding a reliable Medium who may be able to help put your mind at rest. It might be that family who have past have been visiting, and you are both 'sensitive' to the afterlife but don't understand it, so it freaks you.
Good luck, Kris

Well what I forgot to say is that the next day after the first time he heard someone call him, my son was in his playroom and heard someone call his name and we haven't told my son about the father hearing someone calling his name so it's not just my hubby... I mean I have heard my name called out a few times but it's been a while and around the time his dad died I felt someone touch my leg in the middle of the night and no one was there, another time I heard someone come in my room and called out to my son cause hubby works evenings. He just had his hearing tested and his eyes were done about 4 months ago. When his dad died my husband took his hand towel off of his golf bag and replaced it with a big johnson one....... one day he looked at the bag and the big johnson one was missing and his dads old hand towel was on the bag again and we still can't find my hubbys hand towel. It seems like a lot of this has happened after the death of his dad 10 yrs ago thats when I felt the hand on my calf and my mother passed last year and he heard mom in the backyard shortly after she died. The day she died we immediately saw a dragonfly which was in her yard, then at the funeral home, then at the grave site. Dragonflies didn't frequent my yard much before but they are around a lot now and when I'm in the pool if I'm in there for an hour one will sit on the buttterfly tree and face me and stay there for an hour or longer depending how long I'm in the pool and once when my dad came over and he couldn't get out of the car one came sat on the butterfly bush and was watching my dads car and didn't leave till he did.... I don't think anything is mentally wrong with hubby or physically cause as I said I've heard my name being called clear as day and no one has been there and my son heard his name being called and came running out of his room cause he thought I needed him to warm up my heat wrap or get me a pain pill and I said I didn't call you and it was the day after that happened to my husband. It's just freaking me out...
He definitely should go to the doctor, but don't be too freaked out by it. There are lots of minor health issues that can cause things like this. It's extremely common for people in middle age or later to have slight hearing loss that, oddly enough, makes them hear things that aren't there when it's quiet. It's something to do with the tiny little hairs in the inner ear. They get bent too much by noise, and they don't spring back right away like when you were younger. Then when they do let go and straighten up, it seems like you heard something. And if you have mild hearing loss, you're always straining and tense without noticing and your other senses are struggling to compensate, so you're more likely to be startled by a shadow you catch from the corner of your eye or by a draft on your skin.
(My dad just got hearing aids, and he says he has energy like he can't remember. He realizes that he was tired all the time from straining to hear. Going out is fun again for the first time in thirty years.)
So... In the morning, call around to get him an appointment for a hearing exam first, then an eye exam if he hasn't had one this year. If they don't find anything, it's time for a regular doctor. But there's no need to panic; he's NOT going crazy and your house isn't haunted. (If the ghosts weren't already there when you moved in, there's certainly no reason for them to show up in a house that's been occupied and changed by other people for years!)

Wow, that sounds serious! Have him checked out by a doctor and go from there. Good luck and God bless you!!!
Could possibly be psychosis.... happens to people sometimes as a result of severe stress or tramatic event. But if you're hearing stuff too, not psychosis.

I would have him take a physical and check for a brain tumor if it gets worse.

I would say you might want to find a medium to come and cleanse your house.

I went through a spell where I thought I was seeing things out of the corner of my eye and saw what I would call spooky visual distortions but it turned out I had "flashers and floaters," that is, little pieces of "stuff" floating around in my eyeball which is common at my age (60's). But floaters wouldn't account for all the things your husband is experiencing.

The other evening we were watching a show and my son was in his playroom, all of a sudden he jumped up from the sofa and called my son to see where he was my son said I'm in my room, he said did you just come over here? He said no and he didn't cause I was right there sitting on the recliner. He said omg I saw something move from the corner of my eye fast as I heard someone whisper my name in my ear............ oooooooooooooooookay now hubby doesn't joke about this kind of stuff and I could tell by his reaction he was freaked out... Next morning he says he sees a shadow moving across the window cause the sun was shining in and then it was as if someone walked in front of it and then the sun came back. 2 nights later..... he was locking up and I made my way upstairs cause he takes to long, I was in bed and my phone rang, it was my husband he said did you just call me from the stairs? now I can hear how freaked out he was on the phone... I said no I'm already in bed baby nowhere near the stairs and my son went to bed like 3 hrs earlier and he was sound asleep, he said you sure you didn't call me? I said no I didn't.... So he hung up each time he is hearing his name being called, now when my mother passed away last year he was in the backyard and he heard someone say MOM..... and I have to admit I have heard my name being called once or twice before but this was a while ago.... but he's really starting to freak me out cause Im home a lot while he's working hahaha and now he's kind of got me scared to go upstairs by myself hahahaha What does this mean? and why are they only calling him now? freaky
