I am 20 years old living and care taking for my great aunt who is 101. She came to me earlier saying that she’s been having trouble sleeping. I asked her why and she told me that every night she is always woken up by exactly 7 knocks. I’ve looked up what 7 knocks could mean, but no luck. No one has died recently that we know of. At first I thought that it was just her hearing things, but right before I went to the bathroom right next to her bedroom a couple nights ago, a I heard it for myself. This was around 2 in the morning.
They were very clear knocks. Not like an animals. We’ve ruled out as much as we could from animals trees, pranksters. (I had a friend come over and check for kids when the knocks happened, no kids.)
I have no idea if this has to do with the situation, but we live in a duplex. My grandma lives in the house attached. She has an overly creepy basement with an odd room. This “odd” closet doesn’t have a light and is all concrete. I have never opened that door without a few dead rats right by the door inside. What’s even more creepy, there is a boarded up room in that closet. The wood is old and there is a small crevice I can peek through. All I see is more concrete walls, unidentified objects that have bee shadowed, and there is always a breeze when I look through the hole.
I’ve talked to many “paranormal experts” in town, however they all have led me into wrong, misleading directions that sent me into a downward spiral of having night terrors/sweats, waking up in the middle of the night screaming. For about a month I would wake up standing either facing a wall or next to my front door, having to stop myself from unlocking it and going outside to who knows where.
I just want to know about these 7 knocks. What do they mean? Why is the number always 7? Why is this always around 2 am? I’ve never gotten an answer for any of this.
