This was so weird and I really can't explain it. Things have been a little tense at home this last week and a lot has been going on in terms of really bad things happening to very special people in my life.
Last night I went to bed alone and was awoken by someone shaking my foot, I was sleeping on my stomach. I awoke immediately thinking there was an intruder in the house. My natural instinct was to make as if I am sleeping and again someone shook my foot as if trying to wake me gently. I wanted to scream for my husband but thought that this would be a dangerous move. The next moment someone lay down half on top of me. It was as if there wasn't enough space next to me so they lay half on top of me, flinging their arm across me but causing me to expel my breath with an audible groan. With the weight on top of me I started feeling terribly claustrophobic and really struggled to get out from under it.
The moment I was free I sat up and looked around, there was nobody there. I also noticed that my husband had come to bed and was sleeping soundly. I stood up, checked the house, went to the bathroom and then back to bed. I feel that this entity was there to comfort me and in no way intended to harm me.
Besides my fear when I thought it was an intruder, I was calm. But, I have no idea who this was. I must also mention that I was awoken from a dream about my sisters being injured in hospital. Whether this caused the visitation I have no idea.
I live in South Africa and burglary and murder is an everyday occurrence, thus my initial reaction that it may be an intruder.
If anyone can help me understand this, I would be extremely grateful.
Snap, both my aunt and I have experienced the same thing, minus the tapping of the foot.
I was sleeping alone, facing the wall, when I felt someone hug me from behind. My sliding door makes a noise when you open it (I don't know how, but my little cousin broke it so it comes off the track when opened real fast & all the men in my family have BEEN fixing it for a year now?😵), and I always lock my other door before going to bed, so on realizing that I didn't hear it open, I sat up only to find nothing and no one there with me. I don't like spirits that scare me or come from behind so I cr***ed on whatever it was and tried falling back to sleep again.
One thing I must say though, is although the move itself could be seen as "comforting", the feeling I got was anything but- maybe it was the adrenalin and being on high alert #shrugs but I remember my aunt also feeling unsettled by hers.
Would also love to heat from others if they know what this is and why it does that. I've experienced it twice already, the above being the most recent.
Thanks for sharing.
