Let me tell you some details about myself. I am a 21 year old college graduate and live in the State College region. I don't think I have any type of special "gifts" or anything like that. Yes, some places I feel uneasy or I feel like I'm being watched. But I'm sure a lot of people get that due to anxiety or just due to their surroundings. I can't go to sleep at night until 1-3 am because I'm weird like that and I have to have some type of music on to fall asleep (I mention this because I don't want to explain later). Anyways, I started working in housekeeping at a hotel when I was eighteen. When you work in housekeeping you have to stay alert of your surroundings, clean well, and try to stay out of the guests way. I know that the hotel has had a person die there due to a heart attack but never thought anything of it. Sometimes I would feel like someone was right behind me or watching me when I was cleaning in a room or just walking down the hall. I would look and no one would be there so I just shrugged it off thinking it was only my surroundings. My boyfriend and I did stay at the hotel once when the weather was bad and I had to go to school the next morning and I felt perfectly fine about it. I graduate college in September of 2009, and was working at the hotel full-time until I could get a job with my degree.
This brings us to January of 2010. It was a Saturday night and a couple of coworkers and I were staying at the hotel due to bad weather coming in. It was a fun, relaxing night. We watched a couple TV shows and played a couple games of pool. It was around 11 pm by the time I went to my room and I locked the door with the chain thingy and the bolt lock. I got a shower, crawled into bed, did a little reading, and watched a little TV. By then it was 2 am, so I turned everything off and laid on the right side of the bed with my back facing the window and my front facing the bathroom. Everything was really quite, so I started humming the first song that popped in my head. Amazing Grace. Now let me remind you that I've been working at this hotel for almost 3 years, I know the sounds and feels of it down to which door gets hung up on the carpet when you open it. So I was lying there humming away and I started to drift into sleep. I wasn't humming much and about to sleep when from the right bottom side corner of the bed I heard a man's deep voice in a whisper/normal voice clearly say "Don't". I almost sh** myself. First thing that happened was all the hairs on my body stood up and it felt like everything froze on my body. Then I started thinking there is no way anyone got into my room everything is locked up, I would have heard something, felt something. Then I listened really hard to see if I could hear anything else. There was no sound, the air con wasn't on, and there was no movement in the room, no sounds coming from the hallway or the rooms beside me. I laid there for a good 10 minute fully awake not moving a muscle calming myself down and praying. I finally moved and turned on the TV and a little while later I fell asleep.
I told my coworkers the next day and they believed me instantly. I don't know why they didn't think I was crazy or something but they believed me. I thought about it all day and told my mother when I got off work. About a month later I got a job that I went to college for.
I didn't mean for this to be so long and I do apologize, but this only happened to me once before, about 4 or 5 years ago, in a totally different place and I thought it was only my imagination. I'd like to know what this sounds like to other people. I want to know that it's not my imagination and I heard what I heard. This will always remain in my mind as one of the most compelling moments of my life. I hope you enjoyed reading about my experience, and if anyone else has had such an experience with a beloved pet, please do share. Thank you.
