Footsteps In My Bed Room At Night


Before I get to the story, I would like to talk about myself. My parents are divorced but that's okay with me, I live with one family for one week the other the next. My dad and step mum (I will not use names for protection) don't believe in spirits and they think it's all nonsense. While my mum does (she doesn't believe in ghosts on T.V, but she does know they are real) my step dad doesn't believe in them. I have a twin sister who is 13 like me I have a brother who is 5 while my other sister (who is not twin) is 7 years old. They don't know that I have a gift. I have been able to hear and feel spirits all my life, I used to be scared of the voices but I have grown used to them (I am still scared at times) I am also an empath, I just found out.

When we moved into our new home (this was with dad) it was quiet and peaceful, but when one of dad's friends stayed at our house for a while, a couple of days before he would move out. I was in the computer room at the time while he was sleeping in my room. I heard a voice calling my name, I ignored it and kept on sleeping. The next night I heard the voice again, it kept on getting worse every night. Dad's friend moved out and I went back sleeping in my room.

It was quiet at first but then the footsteps started to come back, I ignored them and tried to sleep but they would get worse, I sometimes felt like a person was sitting on the end of my bed. I asked them to stop and calm down they did. And just to tell you it has been a year since it started. But started getting worse again. My feel my bed shake. I asked them to stop it, but after a couple of seconds they do it again. They don't do it hard though. But the spirit who does the footsteps stands out the most to me.

I asked it a couple of questions because I had enough of the footsteps and bed shaking. Here is what it said.

Me: I'm just wondering but why did you choose me when you could have gone to someone else?

Spirit: Because you're the only one I can talk to (it said in a whisper)

Just to let you know I got this gift from my mum, she used to dream and they would come true but she lost that gift a while ago. My twin sister has no gift; I'm the one with it. And probley in the whole family. When my mum was young she got very sick and had to go to hospital, and I have read that near death experiences can cause you to develop hearing to spirits or dreaming etc. I'm not sure if mum nearly died in the hospital, I still have to ask. So anyway back to the questioning.

I don't remember the rest of the questions but I remember feeling that it might be a lost spirit trying to go to the light and since I was the only who could talk to it, the spirit came to me.

If you guys have any advice it would be helpful, I have looked at some of the comments from other stories and a priest won't help because

1. My dad and step mum don't believe in this stuff.

2. They will think I'm crazy because I have tried telling them I can hear and feel spirits.

So if you guys have any advice please do tell (by the way sorry that this was long, but I had to write it all down so you would get it)

I think you should ask the spirit about what it wants and you could help him/her. After the spirit has done what it wanted, it might just leave you alone and finally go to the light. I heard that if a living person promises something but unfortunately dies before he can do what he promised, so his soul is hauning someone who can help him do what he promised, and then he will go to the light. This might not be true, though, but I heard stuff like that a lot in different ways. Hope I helped and good luck! 😊
