This experience happened to me when I was a young child around 7 years old. I lived in a newly built apartment complex with my parents and younger sister. We had just moved to Logan, Utah for my dad's work. I really have not had any experiences that I can remember before this.
Me and my sister, who was about 5, had to share a room and our beds were on the opposite sides of each other. One night me and my sister went to bed like any other night. I am not sure how long I was asleep but it felt like it was only a short time. As I was laying there in my bed sleeping, I felt someone grab my arm. As soon as I felt it, I instantly woke up. I am a very light sleeper and still am to this day. I thought it was my sister grabbing me but when I opened my eyes, she was in her bed fast asleep. It was impossible for it to be her because of how fast I woke up and how far our beds are apart.
It was not a light grab either, I could still feel it for a while after it happened. It did not scare me too badly at the time; I just got this deep feeling of comfort. I think it might have been a family member just letting me know they were there. I honestly have no explanation for why it happened. I am a very open person when it comes to the paranormal.
I have had several experiences since this and I will share more stories later. I always have this feeling of something following me and most of the time it is not a good feeling. I do not think what grabbed me that night was the same spirit. I just got this calm and comforting feeling. It is one of the few things I can look back on and feel good about it.
