Things Moving On Their Own


I kind of forgot about this incident because it happened a little after the major incidents, so anyway this is it-

I was watching TV (I watch a lot of it) at around 2:30 to 3 in the afternoon. I wasn't alone as my grandmother was just a few feet away from me. Everything was quite normal but then my concentration shifted in an instant. A cross which has been hanging just above the TV started to move, violently. It was like someone has pushed it hard or like it had been flicked. The cross had been hanging by a nail just above the TV, it is a 5 to 6 inch metal cross which is heavy. There is no possibility of wind moving it or anything.

As soon as I saw this cross move, I quickly called my grandmother and said, "Look at that!" she was confused and said that she didn't see what I meant as she thought I told her to look at what was being shown on TV (I do that a lot). I was too awestruck to actually tell her again that it was the cross above the TV and not the TV. But I repeated what I said earlier. It stopped moving suddenly, abruptly. It was not like how something in motion stops gradually. Then I explained to her about what I saw and she grew worried. She had heard that a cross in the house brings forth problems. I don't believe that. But in spite of her beliefs, she kept the cross at home.

She gets a lot of eerie dreams, my grandma. She can see the dead in her dreams and kind of knows when something bad might happen, she used to get nightmares as someone used to choke her in her dreams and she would start screaming in her sleep and we'd wake her up. She never used to sleep peacefully and has felt someone poke her, push her, touch her, call her name, etc. She has also felt shadows and dark beings but all in her dreams. She had been getting them for a long time now. But she told me that somehow, after the cross incident, she has never been getting any dreams of the sort and is able to sleep well.

I don't know if any of this is actually connected or if it all has some meaning. So any comment is much appreciated.

TinAA- yes we removed it from there immediately. It's now kept at the altar. We had just got it then (it was a gift) and that was its temporary place (by the tv). Well I was watching Friends that time so it wasn't anything to do with the content. And thanks a lot for your comment (=

Hey TanTan, as per my experience I would like to tell you that the cross should not be hanged over/beside the television or any other thing. If we are adoring it, then there has to be a special space for it. Yes even I have heard that cross should not be kept at home, because it requires a lot of care to be taken of i.e., you should place it in a special place. You should keep it clean. You should adore it daily. As in your experience you said that the cross was above the TV. Well, you have not mentioned what you were watching on TV by that time when the cross started moving on its own. Was it horror or something of that kind.? I strongly suggest you to remove that cross from above the TV and place it somewhere in a special place only meant for the cross. And keeping cross in our homes always protects us from all bad things. Even I have a Rosary with a huge cross at my home which is hanged just above the alter. Better you try the same.
Good luck and God bless:-)

Wow that is some pretty intense stuff you got going on there. So you say that her dreams have stopped since the cross moved violently?
