Answer by Paul S
Just in your head.
It sounds like night terrors. Take away the sounds, and I’ve had the same experience a couple of times. We don’t know what it is yet, but there’s obviously no reason to think it’s anything more than a brief glitch in your neural firings.

Maybe it could be an evil spirit. You may want to seek the help of a good priest or pastor or a good man of God. You might even need an exorcist if it is serious. Hopefully it is not. Many saints were disturbed by the devil. You may want to get some holy water. You can get it from a Cathoic Church. You may need a clean container for it like an empty water bottle or any container will do. Or you can ask a priest to make some for you. You may also read about this in the lives of saints. It sounds spooky. Maybe you can also get the help of Mama Mary. The devil and the evil spirits hate her. Get some good images of God in your house and rooms. A crucifix in every room or an image of Mary and St. Michael in your rooms may also help. The cross of St. Benedict is also known as a powerful help against evil spirits. Then inspect your house in case you have been keeping anything demonic there. Maybe things like a oiuja board or tarot cards or horoscope books or astrology stuff. Some movies, or books or anything that has anything to do with the evil spirits or the devil. Get them out of your house. Better yet burn the unholy things. If you have images of God and Mary or the Saints and angels you may also want them blessed by a priest with some holy water. Sprinkle holy water in your rooms, beds, house, etc. Better yet ask a priest to bless your house. Go to spiritual direction and confide this to a priest. Get some help soon before it gets worse. Don’t worry. Do things peacefully and rely on the mercy of God. He will help you. Remember you have a guardian angel to help you. St. Michael is also a good helper. Mary is too. Here are some prayers the Popes have approved against the devil.
Prayer to St. Michael:
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our help against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do you oh Prince of the heavenly hosts by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits, who roam through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Prayer to Mary: Remember oh most gracious and blessed Virgin, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence we fly to you, oh Virgin of virgins our mother. To you we come before you we pray, sinful and sorrowful. Oh mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions but in your mercy hear and answer me . Amen.
St. Joseph is also the terror of demons. You can also ask his intercession. Ask the help of good people to help you. The devil is cunning so you may need the help of friends to help you. Get good god fearing friends to help you. Take away also anything that has to do with witchcraft or similar stuff of the occult. Anything that might be doubtful should be removed. Remove any traces of evil in your life. Get rid of bad habits, games, etc. Be careful and God bless you. Peace be with you. The nuns also taught us to say in Jesus name, I command you to leave. But someone said this might be not so safe so do what you think is best. Good luck. God be with you and may Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all the angels and saints bless and pray for you. Now if it is not demonic, you may need some counselor or something. Nevertheless God bless you and keep you safe.
Answer by St.Joseph
It could be a medical problem but I would go entirely with Hope’s answer ( above) if it was demonic. Having recourse to Mary, the Blessed Mother of God will help you greatly. If possible, ask a Catholic to teach you to pray the daily Rosary.The Rosary , a simple, traditional Catholic prayer is called the ‘Scourge of Satan’.
Experimenting with various meditation techniques outside the Catholic church could provide an open door for evil spirits so beware.

Let’s google it~ Here is what I found:
So what is the origin of birthdays? Where did the idea of birthdays celebrations come from?
“Originally the idea [of birthday greetings and wishes for happiness] was rooted in magic. The working of spells for good and evil is the chief usage of witchcraft. One is especially susceptible to such spells on his birthday, as one’s personal spirits are about at that time. Dreams dreamed on the birthday eve should be remembered, for they are predictions of the future brought by the guardian spirits which hover over one’s bed on the birthday eve. Birthday greetings have power for good or ill because one is closer to the spirit world on this day. Good wishes bring good fortune, but the reverse is also true, so one should avoid enemies on one’s birthday and be surrounded only by well-wishers. ‘Happy birthday’ and ‘Many happy returns of the day’ are the traditional greetings” (The Lore of Birthdays, Linton, p. 20)…
The giving of birthday gifts is a custom associated with the offering of sacrifices to pagan gods on their birthdays. Certainly the custom was linked with the same superstitions that formed the background for birthday greetings. “The exchange of presents… is associated with the importance of ingratiating good and evil fairies… on their or our birthdays” (ibid.).
The traditional birthday cake and candles also have their origin in ancient pagan idol worship. The ancients believed that the fire of candles had magical properties. They offered prayers and made wishes to be carried to the gods on the flames of the candles. Thus we still have the widely practiced birthday custom of making a wish, then blowing out the candles. The Greeks celebrated the birthday of their moon goddess, Artemis, with cakes adorned with lighted candles…
“The Egyptians… discovered to which of the gods each month and day is sacred; and found out from the day of a man’s birth, what he will meet with in the course of his life, and how he will end his days, and what sort of man he will be” (Herodotus, Persian Wars, Book II, ch. 82)
Since it was believed that the positions of the stars at the time of birth influenced a child’s future, astrological horoscopes came into being, purporting to foretell the future, based on the time of birth. “Birthdays are intimately linked with the stars, since without the calendar, no one could tell when to celebrate his birthday. They are also indebted to the stars in another way, for in early days the chief importance of birthday records was to enable the astrologers to chart horoscopes” (The Lore of Birthdays, p. 53). Rawlinson’s translation of Herodotus includes the following footnote: “Horoscopes were of very early use in Egypt… and Cicero speaks of the Egyptians and Chaldees predicting… a man’s destiny at his birth”…
When we examine the principles of God’s law closely, as they relate to birthday celebrations, we can understand why neither Christ, nor His Apostles, nor their true followers, observed their birthdays. As noted earlier, the practice has its origin in idolatry and the worship of the sun, moon and stars…Some may view birthday customs as purely secular, lacking any religious significance. Yet we need to be aware of the broader perspective of their origins, and the religious significance they have had—and still have—for vast multitudes of people. (Reynolds, Rod. Should Christians Celebrate Birthdays? Living Church News, May-June 2002. pp.16-18).
Furthermore, the book The Lore of Birthdays (New York, 1952) by Ralph and Adelin Linton, on pages 8, 18-20 had this to say:
The Greeks believed that everyone had a protective spirit or daemon who attended his birth and watched over him in life. This spirit had a mystic relation with the god on whose birthday the individual was born. The Romans also subscribed to this idea. . . . This notion was carried down in human belief and is reflected in the guardian angel, the fairy godmother and the patron saint. . . . The custom of lighted candles on the cakes started with the Greeks. . . . Honey cakes round as the moon and lit with tapers were placed on the temple altars of [Artemis]. . . . Birthday candles, in folk belief, are endowed with special magic for granting wishes. . . . Lighted tapers and sacrificial fires have had a special mystic significance ever since man first set up altars to his gods. The birthday candles are thus an honor and tribute to the birthday child and bring good fortune…
Thus it appears that birthdays had their origin in mythology and magic, with horoscopes also probably playing a role.
So does this mean that all holiday traditions are centered in witchcraft originally? Funny thought.
