I am very confused and curious about a few things. I don't generally believe in paranormal activity or ghosts. Never have. My feeling is I will believe it when it happens to me. For the last six months however, I have been feeling like I am a loon. It is nothing major or scary, probably isn't even interesting, but it is strange. It started at my boyfriend's house, while I was sleeping in his bed. I am not a spooked easily type of woman, but one night, I was totally freaked out. He was gone working and I was there alone. It was probably around 11pm and very quiet. I kept feeling like someone was there so I got up and checked the house and the driveway. He wasn't home yet and no one else was around so I went back to bed.
A little while later I felt an intense feeling of being watched, but again there was no one there. Finally I fell asleep only to be woken up by a soft touch on my lower left leg. My boyfriend likes to play tricks so I just thought it was him being funny. It wasn't. He was still gone, but I am sure someone touched my leg. Later on it happened again but this time it was my shoulder. Just a soft, slight touch. It felt like a couple of fingers, just gently touching me, not much pressure. I got up, turned all the lights on and checked the house again. Nothing. The house was just as I had left it, doors locked, lights out and him still gone. Thinking I must be crazy or imagining thing I went back to sleep.
This has happened probably five times since then, always at his house. I don't know why or what the heck it is but I know when someone is touching me. I have never believed in this kind of stuff. I don't freak easily and I am not religious person at all.
I didn't think a whole lot about it until two days ago. I was in my new house. I have been there for about two weeks. Before this has only happened at his house, as I have said. This time I was actually physically moved. I was in my bed, sound asleep, dreaming even, when suddenly, I was moved about an inch and a half. Like someone grabbed me and physically shook me by my upper torso, just once. It was enough to wake me up and think my daughter was in the room or something. I went down the hall and they were both sound asleep. I heard no sound, no steps or nothing following the movement. I did feel a strange sense of something that I can't put words to.
I honestly don't know what to think. I guess I am hoping someone has had similar things happen to them and can share their stories. I am perplexed. I never believed this kind of stuff, but have always said that I would believe it if it ever happened to me. I am very strong in my beliefs and it is hard to convince me of ghost sightings and such, but lately I have been questioning my own beliefs in these matters. I have also been hearing my name being said very softly. This has happened less often, but it is very clear, almost as if someone is sitting next to me, but there is no one there.
I feel silly for being scared, but I am beginning to feel kind of afraid when I am alone.
