Around a week ago, at roughly 1 o'clock at night, I was woken up by a strange tapping. It was a fast paced tap with a tinny/metallic ring to it. I sat up, attempting to locate the source of the noise. It continued as I held my breath to get a better sense of the origins. After no more than a minute I realised the tapping came from my room. More precisely my desk. I have one of those "Newton's Cradle" as a time passer on my desk - which ultimately was the source of the noise. The cradle seemed to have a lot of strength as though started by a human. I stood in awe of the event for just over two minutes and the cradle did not lose energy. In the end, I stopped the ball from connecting and went back to bed.
Then two nights later, at 2:27am (I looked this time) the tapping began again. This time, I got up and stopped the cradle and mockingly said "Very funny spirit!" and went back to bed. An hour later a dull hum sounded, waking me up and I looked around for the source. The hum continued for roughly half an hour until a slight crash sounded on my desk. I once again got up to investigate the cradle to find it knocked over on the desk and my notebook open and a bend in the page. I was spooked! I had no idea what to do until I eventually apologised to the spirit for my previous sarcastic comment. I returned to bed but did not sleep that night. The humming died down and nothing else happened.
There has been no other incidences other than chills and a few movements of stationary but I'm asking, "What is happening?" "Why is it happening?" And "Can I make it stop?"
Your comments will mean a lot to me, thank you.
