I am 29 years old and my husband, father and I live in the family home that I, as well as my mother, grew up in. Our house was built by my grandfather on the same property that HE grew up on. The old farmhouse that he grew up in, however, is no longer here. It burned down when my mother was a little girl. Several members of my family have died in this home, or outside on this property, including my mother who passed away here in 2006. Most recently my grandfather, the one who built this house, passed away here from cancer. So the property has some history. Some of it unknown since we will sometimes find arrowheads or pieces of dishes in the ground, even a stone wall buried in the front yard and no one knows what it went to.
Last night I heard someone knocking on the front door. It was very distinct and woke me from sleeping at about 4:30am. I went downstairs, turned on the light and looked outside but there was nobody there. I was a little bit freaked out so I walked around the house and made sure all the windows and doors were locked, then I went back to bed and started to doze off. A few minutes later I heard a thud and scuffling sound. I got up again, grabbed a baseball bat and patrolled around the house but still there was nobody there.
Everyone thinks I was dreaming, but I know that I had woken up to knocking at the front door. Does anyone else see, hear or experience strange things when they are in the state between sleeping and being awake. My brother and I both have strange experiences and see or hear weird things when we feel like we are between sleeping and awake, and will often wake up multiple times during the night. He's a pretty macho guy and I don't think he would lie about it. Does anyone else out there know what I'm talking about with the whole between sleeping and waking thing? Is it only our imaginations getting us all freaked out like everyone says?
