Several years ago during the week or so after my husband died, I had something strange happen. I lived alone in our house. One evening, I was in bed, crying again, and I heard light knocking on the ceiling outside the bedroom. I ignored it, thinking it was just strange house noises. I noticed it on and off through the night.
The next day at some point I heard more knocking. In the evening later at night the knocking happened again, but louder. I think somewhere around the third or fourth day, the knocking became very loud and frantic sounding.
I thought I had an intruder in my attic crawl space. I wasn't in a self-protecting frame of mind because I was so sad about my husband, and I figured I would just open up my attic door and find this person right then and there and tell them to get out. I wasn't the least bit worried about a confrontation.
I got a step ladder and opened the trap door, which incidentally was in the hallway outside of my bedroom. I shined a flashlight inside and took a really good look around, but saw no signs of anyone or anything that could have been up there. Nothing was loose, no sources of knocking visible. The house was only two years old, nothing in disrepair, and it was quite clean up there.
I was actually surprised that nobody was there. The knocking seemed so purposeful.
I heard some knocking again the next day, but then never again. Never.
At the time, it never occurred to me that maybe my husband was trying to communicate with me. It wasn't until later when on this site that I connected the dots between knocking and ghosts or communication.
I wish I would have thought of it then so that I could have communicated with my husband. I even had one day during the couple of weeks after he died with an extreme cold move over me in the house, in the end of August. It passed after about two or three minutes, and it was ice cold.
My question is this: has anyone else had a direct experience with knocking and a deceased loved one? Anyone try to use that to communicate?
Thanks for reading!
(And good luck with your book!)
