strange, maybe paranormal closed eye hallucinations as a kid, very strange/u/RedMenaceJo

To preface, as a 20 year old adult I have never suffered from any sort of hallucinations or schizophrenia. I am a healthy, reasonably well balanced adult. I'm not sure I believe in the supernatural, but the feelings that these memories bring me are irrational. I grew up in an old midwestern farmhouse well over 150 years. My sister is convinced it was haunted and has told me multiple stories that I may rely here someday. I also saw a few things that were odd but nothing that couldn't be explained by a child's imagination on a creepy house. However, once a year, usually in the middle of winter, I would get vivid closed eye hallucinations. Random images flashing as well as a voice. To clarify, these are NOT DREAMS. I could open my eyes at any point and they would dissappear, and as soon as I closed them they would start up as easily as unpausing a movie. The visions would start with an distressed older man's voice and I would see random household objects. Shoes, lamps, dressers doors, etc. The man's voice would be repeating things along the lines of "where is it? I can't find it. Where is it?". I remember vividly that the specific line "where is it" would repeat several times. After several minutes I would see items like a globe or the sun or the sky, and a very soft, warm female voice would say "it is me". And as soon as she said that the sensations would end and I could just go back to sleep. This would only happen once a year, every year for a few years, maybe ages 6-9. I would develop an anxiety around winter because I knew I'd have that dream. Then one year they stopped and almost I almost immediately forgot about them. Only in the last few years or so have I been reexamining these memories. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could mean, rational or supernatural? I really just want to get as many viewpoints as possible at this point because I am at a loss.
