Someone Or Something Moved My Hand

 

Someone or something moved my hand:

I always look at the time when I'm awoken by sounds or dreams. This experience happened at 2:12am this morning, 4th September 2019. I was fast asleep and woke up when I felt my hand being flung off my pillow. It didn't drop slowly, it was quick.

I usually sleep on my left side, with my right hand nestled under my left cheek, or vise versa, sleep on my right side with left hand nestled under my right cheek. My hand gives me a cushion sort of comfort.

At 2:12am my right hand which was under my left cheek was flung from its position and it dropped down by the left side of my bed. I know this must sound confusing. All I'm trying to say is, it couldn't slip from that position, someone or something flung it from under my face.

When I woke up from this movement, I looked around and no one was there. (Naturally because I live on my own)

The strange thing was I felt a cool feeling in the room. All the windows were closed. I checked when I woke up. It's spring here in Australia and it was 26' degrees, according to the weather bureau today.

It happened really quickly but I remember it really well. 👻👻👻

No one was in the house. I cautiously went to see if someone broke in. I took my phone in one hand and a pole that I use to stop the window sliding open in the other. Everything was as I left it. (All locked up)

I haven't been able to stop thinking about what happened. I've been trying to figure out if I had a dream or if it was real. It felt real, and I know my hand can't just slip from under my face.

I have been having a lot of strange experiences since being in this unit. All my life I have had encounters with this or that and I just wish there was an explanation for these experiences.

I'm definitely getting stronger. I'm not as scared as I used to be. When I was young, I used to freeze to point that I really couldn't move. Now I face the shadows and spirits and calmly tell them to leave.

I haven't done Rookdygins cleansing in about 3/4 weeks or so. I got a bit lazy with it admittedly. I guess the first thing for me to do is keep going with the cleansing ritual every fortnight.

I also need to google what this means or what or who it is.

I'm not a good sleeper. I wake up a few times through the night. I don't take sleeping tablets because I want to stay alert.

Anyway. I thought I'd share this with you. You have all been very patient with me and given me a lot of fantastic support and advice.

Thank you for reading this. Hopefully you can help me work out what is happening. (if this post gets published)

Best wishes

Miandra

It's really good to hear back from you as well Miandra 😊 I too have missed chatting with you. I think your little pookie sounds so precious ❤ that's adorable to hear that he has the habit of taking your covers for his comfort, at least when you wake up to missing covers being pulled to the floor, it's not because of something paranormal doing it 😨 that's something I would not want to experience. It's nice to know that I'm not the only adult who is still afraid of the dark. I still think you're very brave to go through what you do alone though. I understand the comfort a loving pet can give in helping you feel better in your home. I had stayed in an apartment many years ago, and despite not being alone while living there, I still struggled with feeling comfortable with the spirit I felt there. So I ended up getting me a little companion to help comfort me at night, when I was frequently awoken by something standing next to me in bed. She really helped me a lot in getting through that time living there. Sadly a few years later, after moving to a place out in the country, a nearby neighbor I believe had stolen her, because she was pregnant, and given her breed, would make good money to sell her puppies. It broke my and my son's hearts to have her taken from us like that, as she was very muched loved by us. As for your thoughts about why I experience that mostly when my husband is out the room, I'm not quit sure. He too also has experiences aswell here, and other places. But it seems that he deals with more aggressive behavior from whatever is around him, that I have rarely experienced myself. I have an experience about the one I had, that I keep wanting to submit here. My husband had woken to me being disturbed in my sleep, to seeing a black mass hovering over me while I was still asleep, in the middle of a horrible dream, that I believe that thing had made me have, as I too had saw a black mass at the end of our bed, right before I went to sleep that night, and at that time, my husband was unaware of me seeing that. So I don't know how to make sense on why it does that when he leaves the room. Perhaps your suggestion on it finding comfort from me is a factor, as I've been told that before, and had written about in my "Memory Lane" submission. It was good to hear from you again, and I hope to hear back from you again soon.

Hello Twilight1011,

OMG, I haven't seen you here in such a long time. I've missed our chats.
I don't think your responses are too long. I thoroughly enjoy reading your comments.
That little hand that held yours, sounds like a child spirit who found comfort by holding your hand. You mentioned that you have experienced several spirit sightings when your husband leaves the room... Perhaps they find you comforting and perhaps they have tried to make themselves known to your husband too, but, perhaps he's busy rushing around and never sees them.
(I don't know why that happens) 🤔
I'm still scared of the dark too as an adult, and like you, I also pull the sheets over my head at times. 😲
I have the cutest little dog now who usually jumps in bed with me or drags my sheets off the bed and sleeps on them. Lol. I have given him his own arm chair, a soft fluffy pet cushion, and soft pillow. He still drags my sheets of my bed and ruffles them up into a ball and sleeps on them. I go to pull my sheets up sometimes and feel for them but can't find them. I look down on the floor and there is my little pookie-poo fast asleep next to my bed, or on my bed with the sheets at the end of my bed.
My little dog keeps me busy now and I feel stronger coping with the paranormal with him in my unit.
Thanks for your reply Twilight1011, It's so good to see you again.
SWS. 😘

Hello Lealeigh and Manafon1,

I appreciate your response to my dilemma in search of the footage of the ghosts caught on dashcam.
I understand all the different thoughts associated with ghost sightings in general. I am one of those people that needs proof, and even then, unless it happens to me, or that I witness them first hand, I also find it hard believing. In this case, my gut instincts say it's real. (Once again, I'm not an expert, I'm just going by my instincts).
Thank you both again for you responses in helping me out.

SWS. 😘

Hello Valkricry,

Thank you for posting the link to the article/ video footage published by the sun. I watched everything and can't help but feel they were human spirits and not droplets. (I'm no expert of course, but my instinct says it's real) Especially with the version of the footage published by the sun.
Thank you so much for all the ground work you've done in putting all the links together. It's exactly what I tried so hard to find online, but not knowing the place of the battlefield, I had no success.

Once again,
Thank you. SWS 😘

Hey Miandra, 😊 I haven't been on this site as often as I use to be for the past year or so now, due to how crazy its been around my house lately. And now with this pandemic going on, it's only gotten crazier, now having to help my 3 kids with their online schooling from home, since school's are not fully opened anymore. Anyways, I've really missed being on here, reading everyone's stories they've sent in, and just talking to the regular people on here. What you said about how you use to get so scared when you were young, when dealing with the paranormal, that you would freeze to the point of not moving, made me think of how I was as a child when dealing with it. I remember I would get so scared that I would hide under my blankets, despite how hot I'd get under there, or could barely breathe, afraid of what I would see, or what would happen next. I had a theory as a child, that by sleeping in the dark, I wouldn't have to worry about seeing something that would scare me, even though I could still feel it there watching me, knowing where it was, and how close it would be to me. When most kids that age would prefer to at least have a night light on. It was very difficult for me still, because granted I had that theory, I was afraid of the dark, so it was terrifying for me to deal with at such a young age. Honestly, even until this day, I'm still afraid of the dark, but having my husband next to me, is what gives me strength, and helps me not be as afraid. But if I were to go it alone, I would not be able to sleep in the dark. I at least have to have a tv on to help me feel comfortable. I admire that you are able to have found the strength to be able to face your fears of that now. That's something you should feel proud to have overcome. I remember believing as a child, that when you get older, you would no longer be afraid of things anymore, so that was disappointing to realize isn't the case. I have felt what I believe someone touching my hand a few times, and remember questioning myself if I really had just felt that or not. It has only happened to my knowledge, when I'm in bed at night, trying to go to sleep. This one time, my husband had went to the bathroom, and as I laid there in bed, in the dark, with my at the time, 4 year old (she's now 5) at the other end of the bed (my husband was in the middle, before he went to the bathroom that is), I had my eyes shut, trying to go to sleep, when I felt a small size hand grab mine. I kept my eyes shut thinking it was my daughter, but couldn't shake that weird feeling I got at that time, so I decided to open my eyes and see if it was her, and with the little bit of light in the room (from a distant light that was on, while our door was opened) I saw her not right next to me like I had thought she was, when I felt someone grab my hand. She was also asleep, and I remember still seeing where her hand was, and if she was to reach out to grab mine, if it would have reached, and noticed it didn't add up. That how I felt the position of the hand that grabbed mine, was impossible to have been from my daughter. That's when I thought how freaky that was. I doubt it meant any harm obviously, if anything, it was showing comfort, but thought how this kind of stuff always seems to happen to me, when my husband leaves the room at night, when we're in bed, and the lights are out. It's like it waits for him to leave to mess with me. At least it doesn't do anything in a harmful way though. I've wondered who it could have been, thinking of how small the hand felt, it couldn't have been an adult 🤔 like I've said before, I believe there's multiple spirit's in our home, that I assume just attracts to me, as wherever I go, I always experience something. Our house was built by my dad, so no one has died here either. I think between our land, and what attracts to me, is why I feel so many different types around here. Sorry to go on this long with my comment, I can never seem to make things short. I hope all is going good for you now, it was good reading another one of your experiences ❤

Thanks for the gold star Val 😉. I agree further investigation and interviews with the witnesses would have been enlightening. There do appear to be drops on the windshield but where they came from isn't known. Furthermore, the witnesses claim they heard noises yet it is silent in the car. No comments about mist or human sized apparitions as the incident unfolds, yet they stop in front of the cannons as if they've seen something. If I just witnessed an apparition running through a cannon I think I'd be saying something--like, "Did you just see that!"

Although we can't be sure, the evidence suggests that the witnesses noticed this anomaly after the fact and created a full story around it. The lack of any kind of reaction or exclamation of surprise by the witnesses or any sound at all suggests a narrative was created after the anomaly was discovered.

Gold star ⭐ for Manafon. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear.
In my opinion it's just as important to try and 'debunk' the debunking as to analyze the 'haunting'.
Personally, I would have liked to have seen that particular paranormal group (the one's who slowed down the footage) take their investigation further. For instance in the comments on their Facebook page, one woman argued that droplets would need rain and it had not been raining at all. So where did the droplet come from? This was not addressed and I think it should have been. Was there a shower that night/day? Or even a day or 2 prior, that left a puddle he drove through? Had he just come from a car wash? Driven through sprinklers, used the wipers? And what about Mr. Yuelling's claims, as well as the others in the car?
I can't help but wonder if that Investigative group had tried to speak with them, or attempt to see if anyone else had the same experience. Prosaic explanation or not - still a cool video.

Manafon1, Val and SWS,

I have just gotten around to watching the first video and then the slow-motion one. That sucks! I can see how the occupants of the car would think that it was the figure of a man; but, it is also clear that it is a case of well-placed rainwater. Damn.

But no one said it would be easy.

Hi Val--I also searched out articles on the event and read the youtube comments. I believe the people in the car thought they heard things and because of a pre-existing expectation that the area was haunted, thought they had captured Civil War era soldiers moving amongst the cannons. I just personally feel that when the footage is closely scrutinized that there is a convincing argument to be made that what initially appears to be apparitions are raindrops on the windshield combining with the headlights to create an illusion of apparitions.

Of course everyone is welcome to there opinion and I do believe Civil War battlefields are often quite haunted. I've seen a lot of extremely convincing footage from various battlefields over the years. I'm just skeptical of this particular incident even taking into account what the witness stated.

Manafon, yes I did. I went a step further and looked at the comments made on their FB post as well.😉
Did you read the article posted in the US Sun? Https://www.the-sun.com/news/1458963/gettysburg-ghosts-spooky-apparitions-road-running/

Yuelling (the guy who captured the video) claims they heard sounds as well, and that there was a patch of strange fog, and that the shapes were the 'size of humans'.

Hello valkricry, and Manafon1,

Thank you again Valkricry.
Yes, it's something else alright. I watched it a few times. 😲

Manafon1,
I didn't go to the link further down. 🤔
I really believed the footage was of ghosts. I will scroll down and check out the slow motion clip now.

Thank you Valkricry, Manafon1, Lealeigh, and 19isavela73 for your responses. It's so good to know I can come here for answers. I really appreciate your help.

Best wishes,

Sleeping-with-steve and Val--did both of you scroll down further in the article and look at the footage of the same incident analyzed by the New Jersey Paranormal Research Organization? They actually slow the footage down and put forward a rather compelling theory that what we're actually seeing are drops of water on the car windshield in tandem with car headlights that combine with a prior expectation that the area is haunted creating the illusion of apparitions.

I have to agree that the footage is compelling but when it's slowed down and analyzed it does seem to have a prosaic explanation.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, that's the footage. I don't know how you found it based on the little information I provided, but, yes, that's the one.

It's as real as day that there are ghosts in that footage. May their souls RIP.

Thank you Val. I can put my mind at ease now. 😘

19isabela73,

I was in the kitchen when I heard the start of the segment. I ran to the lounge and saw a little bit of the footage, but didn't hear where in America this happened. I've tried googling, but, unfortunately without a place, I'm not having much success. 😕

I'll post my findings if I'm successful.

Hi 19isabela73 and Lealeigh,

Do you have a link 19isabela73? Do you remember which battlefield it was so I can search online? I only heard 2 ghosts were caught on dashcam in a battlefield in America. I didn't hear where in America.😣 I'd really like to see that footage. It looked so interesting.

Good to see you
Lealeigh.
Best wishes to both of you and thanks for replying.

Hello Members,

Does anyone know of a recent ghost sighting in an American battlefield caught on dashcam today? 🤔

The 4.30pm news on Ch 7 today here in Australia, (September 14th 2020), had a segment about two ghosts caught on dashcam at a well known haunted battlefield in America.

I only saw the end of the clip and have been trying to google it so I can watch the full footage.

I haven't had any luck so far.

I'll watch the Ch 7 late news and hopefully they'll repeat that segment.

I'll update my findings if I'm successful.

Best wishes,
SWS 👻

Happy New Year Melda, and thank you.

Your son must love it there on the coast. It's a lovely spot.🏖️

Yes, the fireworks have been cancelled because of high temperatures. Today it was 46 degrees in Penrith and will be 43 there on Saturday.

The poor farmers are struggling. Their calves and lambs are unable to get milk from their mothers and are skin and bones and die.🐄🐑 It brakes my heart when I see the images on the news. I donate money when I can to various causes and pray the farmers get rain. We are on water restrictions because our drinking water dams are down to 38%. ⛲

Anyway, I don't mean to burden you or other members with negative things happening here.

Please enjoy your New Years Eve

Best wishes,
Miranda

Miandra - Happy New Year to you too.

I assume the cancellation of the fireworks is due to drought and fires which have been plaguing Australia.

My son and his family have been living in Australia (Newcastle) for a year now and he said the situation has been pretty bad.

I too wish the members of YGS a prosperous 2020 😊
