Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
What is it and what does it mean?

The thing I detest about having odd experiences is there's never one definitive answer. It's like people simply ascribe their hopes or wishes to what made it happen, so there's a ton of varied theories, but never any discernable actual insight.

For the phantom doorbell syndrome, guesses/theories range from contact from the deceased to an inner alarm clock to impending doom to being a spiritual wake-up call to being a sleep apnea victim and it wakes you up to save your life.

It can also happen as a phantom knocking sound at the door, or a phantom phone ringing.

At the link you'll get an idea of just how commonplace this is.

So, what is it and why does it happen and what does it mean?

I get hard knocks on my bedroom window, it makes me jump up. There is no one there and it is a series of hard, fast knocks,have no clue what it is.

There are no trees or anything that could be hitting the window, tis a mystery to me.

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
One morning my name woke me up. It sounded very different than a dream, and seemed to be coming from the front door. It was so remarkable to me, that I wrote it on my calendar 12/10/08.

Exactly one year later to the day 12/10/09 a girl two houses down came to the door and woke me up. She had been beaten by a transient in the alley. I let her come in and I called 911. She died a couple months later.

and just now, my power went out and came back on before I could post this.

Actually, psychologically it is an auditory remnant of a repeated familiarity stimulus (it's something you hear often and know off by heart, so you imagine it easily when it is not happening sometimes). If a noise is similar to it somewhere (outside, etc) your brain will associate it with that quickly. No demons or weirdness. Relax.

How come when I hear the pahntom doorbells, they are always different rings and none are the same as the doorbell I have? (I rang my own doorbell just to see!)
Neighbor hears doorbells too and swears it is the neighborhood kids. Although I have heard them while awake, it usually happens while asleep. Outdoor cameras prove it is not *ding dong ditch* by the way. Coming from someone who has seen lightning balls in her living room (previous house) alongside someone else who concurrently saw the ball of light(about 18 inches and perfectly round and bluish white...hovered in front of the fireplace & disappeared when we spoke.) Have heard the doorbells before inother houses, which we also felt were haunted or something (aliens?). Anyway, my daughters (old enough to know better and still swear to this day) have seen objects move and fly a short ways across the room in a basement where there were no a/c vents. Many a strange thing happens to my family and we are not on meds, drugs, or anything else and we are perfectly sane.

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
Like everyone else I have heard these phantom doorbells. I have been having these phantom rings for the last 30 yrs or so a couple times a year. No matter what house it is always the same ring, one which I've never physically had, but a generic sounding bell & always seem to come the few times I am in a really deep sleep. The thing is I tear out of bed like a bat out of h*** to rip the door open to find nothing. Doesn't matter what time of the day or if anyone is home. My husband learned to leave me alone after the first few years. I had been napping while he was watching TV once & all of a sudden bolted straight up & was trying to tear down the hall when he thought he would stop me. I was jetting so fast he caught me by the pants, I kept running & drug him off the bed to the floor, which brought my pants down. I don't remember any of that, just opening the door & finding no one there (thank God!...me without my drawers!). He said I didn't miss a beat, just hopped right out of the pants & kept on going. I've also run into him as I tore down the hall & he was coming up it. Smashed him against the wall & had no recollection of it. After all that trouble I'd like to know why this happens. Besides the being in a rare deep sleep it can there are no other ties that I can connect. No good luck/bad luck proceeding within a relative short amount of time. In times of happiness or distress.

I thought I was the only one this happened to. Everyone else I asked just said it was me (I have crazy movie worth epic dreams). Glad to know I am not alone, someone is ringing your bell too!

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
Every few nights I hear a very loud knock on the wall. This knock is about 20 feet up. It's in an enclosed area, no trees nearby. I believe its spiritual. I'm a Christian and I believe its a reminder of this verse.



Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Rev. 3:20

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
It used to happen at any time of day or night along with many other strange electrical phenomena such as shocks from a new amplifier light bulbs burning out regularly etc.
One day I decided to paint the hallway and moved a picture that was hanging on a small panel pin nailed into the wall underneath the fuse board where the 240v enters the house- it was here when I moved in so I just hung a plastic framed picture on it no longer needing it I went to pull it out by hand and received a full on 240v 30+ amp shock.The whole of the wall/house must have been live to some extent,the previous occupants had nailed straight through the main feed to the house and not noticed somehow.Anyway the phantom door bell etc never re-occurred it may be worth having your wiring checked if this happens:).

The thing I detest about having odd experiences is there's never one definitive answer. It's like people simply ascribe their hopes or wishes to what made it happen, so there's a ton of varied theories, but never any discernable actual insight.

For the phantom doorbell syndrome, guesses/theories range from contact from the deceased to an inner alarm clock to impending doom to being a spiritual wake-up call to being a sleep apnea victim and it wakes you up to save your life.

It can also happen as a phantom knocking sound at the door, or a phantom phone ringing.

BTW the doorbell was battery operated but was still affected somehow.
Many doorbells are wireless ones and if a neighbor has a bell operating on the same frequency it can set yours off-this can happen at some distance and is not necessarily in your street.

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
My sister, 21 year old daughter and I have heard knocks at our front door when we've been wide awake. We don't have a door bell on our house, not sure why but when they built this house they never put one in. I can't tell you how many times since we moved here that this has happened. Usually, someone is trying to get our attention- we'll either hear of a death of a loved one or friend, or someone is sick and ends up dying within months, this even happened just before 9/11. It creeps us out, as we know it's not good news for us, anyway, when it happens.

Re: Phantom Doorbell Syndrome - it wakes you up and nobody is at the door
FFS, I hate phantom phone rings.

I've suffered auditory hallucinations since 5. They never crossed over to visual, so my body language reading skills developed early on.

Background noise generally helps, so being in nature can actually trigger it very intensely, but too much background + stress and anomalies show up that aren't very pretty.

Things like music, phone rings, mention of details of my life being overheard in conversations... things like that happen in floods a few times a year in general.
