The following incidents are recent happenings after my previous post.
These days I have been waking up sometime between 2 - 4 am and I am wide-awake. There are no unpleasant feelings when I wake up, it doesn't feel like someone woke me up forcefully like before. I feel like something or someone needs my help when I wake up and wants me to talk to it. Sometimes I think it is divine and sometimes I feel it's pretending to be good until I communicate. There has been some days that I happen to have a nice sleep too.
I have been protecting myself very well before I hit bed. I have smudged my house multiple times over the last 2 - 3 weeks, I regularly burn incense, and I pray to God and meditate daily. In spite of these things, the following experiences make me wonder about what is going on.
One of the nights, I woke up around 3 am and I could smell something burning (the closest thing I could imagine was corn on a grill like how they do in some fairs). It wasn't a bad smell and I was wide-awake, still in my bed. I did not get up and check around the apartment, partly because I didn't want to see anything/anyone else that would freak me out.
When I woke up on one of the mornings, my night lamp was switched off (not by me) - I remember that I kept waking up that night multiple times between 2 am and 4 am. I am sure that the light was on then. There were a couple of other things that were switched off before but I had dismissed it since I didn't remember well. This one, I am very sure that I hadn't switched it off.
I get dreams, which wake me up by 2 - 3 am, and then I lay awake for sometime. I sometimes sense some presence around me but I have a feeling that it can never harm me since I am very well protected. This doesn't tire me out in the mornings and I wake up really fresh. I have joined aerobics classes recently thinking that some physical activity will put an end to my waking up but it hasn't help. I used to sleep through the night very well previously and never had the habit of waking up at night normally.
I am unable to decide if I should talk to 'it' (if there is something) when I wake up at night. Any suggestions?
How do I know if it is a good or bad soul that's waking me up?
I sometimes wonder if I am just imagining stuff that doesn't exist and its more psychological. I haven't communicated with any entities so far (I haven't tried an ouija board etc etc) and hence not very comfortable with the idea of talking to something that I don't know about.
Why is it choosing 2 - 4 am to wake me up and not any other time after I sleep?
Also I get the feeling that it's not stronger than me to harm me, but should it give me the confidence to explore more or should I leave it just as it is? I don't know.
