Shaking, Banging, And A Strange Ball


This story is short. I am a active miltary member and do not scare too easy but some things have happened, and I do not know what to make of them. For a couple of years now when I am half awake and half asleep some strange things would happen. I don't know if its just me or what. It starts out with a feeling of a head rush kind of thing and the room I would be in would get dark, darker than it already was. Then bed would seem to shake; not in a hurt me kind of a way but just a gental shake. Sometimes I would feel like I heard some voices. I don't know if I make this up in my own head or what's goin on but it feels real when it happens, and I know I don't dream it because I am in the confused half asleep half awake state.

Then in the past couple of weeks strange things have been going on. I was driving my girlfriend to her house (She claims to see things all the time) and all of a sudden a load in beat bang started on the roof of my truck. I was doing 55 mph. I slammed the brakes thinking I hit something. I looked at my roof and nothing was there.

A couple of days later I went to pick up my boot and heard a bell sound. I flipped my boot over and a ball rolled out of boot. I have never seen this ball before. The boot was in my place and I lock it eveytime I leave. There is no way someone could have got in. I left the ball with my girlfriend who was very interested in it. She claims that the bells would ring at night with the lights off. I did not trust this until I took the ball back and heard it for myself. Maybe it was gift, who knows.

Some other small thing happened, my ringtone changed itself one day to some strange jingle. I though maybe the factory changed it back to the orignal song. The banging on my truck roof comes back now and again. And a lot of the time I have the gut feeling I am being watched. This gut feeling has saved my life before so I never ignore it.

I don't know if it is a ghost or not. I would love to hear what all of you think.

First of all thank you for your service.
Secondly, I don't know if you or the other posters agree or not but I was thinking that someone you know might be getting in contact with you. Did anyone in your family or someone you know pass away recently? They might be trying to get in contact with you in the way they know how.
I was always taught to trust my gut feeling. This feeling of being watched; how does that make you feel? Is it good, bad, uncomfortable?

Thank you for your dedication and care of others, and for your service for the welfare and protection of others. On to this mystery. Definatly sounds a bit like a puzzle and whatever it is like to jingle! The ball and then the new "jingle" of the ringtone... And the bed wiggling... An animal doesn't seem far fetched. But like the other comments pay attention to it and devote some serious time to just this bell. Zone out and get into that zen moment. Let it come to you. Pay attention to your gut... Does it seem malicious? Curious? Friendly? This is perhaps the first thing you might want to find out before doing anything else. If you want to keep it but don't reall want to hear it jingle, I would atleast, store it into a box packed tight with cottn balls. Something to prevent it from jingling like that. Or atleast it should prevent it from doing that. Good luck!

Thank you for your service. Now on to your experience.

You said...

"Then bed would seem to shake; not in a hurt me kind of a way but just a gental shake."

Is this like a person grabbing the head or foot board and giving it a shake...shake? Or is it more like an animal bumping the end of the bed kind of shake?

Your Gut Feeling / Intutition, call it what you will, should help you figure out this 'puzzle'. What is it telling you about these events?

Are you stationed at Ft.Bragg?. We were there for 9 years and I believe that whole area has a lot of activity. My family and many many friends has experienced paranormal things. Please keep us updated. Thank you

Thank you sir for your service.
The story about the ball reminded me of a story my moms friend told me. She found these bells on her front porch she thought they would be perfect for her cat. Well they rang everytime they weree alone in the room. They sat on her kitchen counter for a couple hours and then she trashed them. Lol

Any way, have you had a cat before? The sound on your truck sounds like an animal may be playing on it, and then there's the gift of the ball.
Just a thought.

Gut feeling? Your intutition is another name for it.

I've found the best way to 'find' something, for those of us who get gut feelings is twofold:

1) Actively NOT look for something. Let it come to you.
2) When such another item comes along, open yourself up to it, in a Zen sort of way. For me, I'd have taken the ball, and devoted some time to it, studying it, examining it, filling my every sort of sense about it, and just sat and observed everything around me. Not focusing on any one thing in particular, just a sort of- everything in general, letting in osmosis in... And allowing myself about 15 minutes more in time than I think is wise, I usually discover something incredible come to me.

All these are events, are pieces of a puzzle.

I think something is really trying to get me to noticei don't know what any of it means and it kind of freaky because the shaking has happened a lot more latly. And my gut saved me in Iraq I was going to turn a corner my gut said no I waited a couple secs then a rpg came flying by. It saved my life.

Sounds like some very strange goings on. Perhaps you are tuned in to some other reality, or perhaps it's some kind of haunting or poltergeist. The ball thing reminds me of the ball in Changeling, starring George C. Scott (he throws it off a bridge and when he gets home, it bounces down the staircase, wet and all - most terrifying movie scene ever, no 3d, no fancy computer graphics needed. But I digress.) Do you feel there is an intelligence at work; that it is perhaps trying to tell you something? Whatever it is, it doesn't sound threatening.
