First some background information: my family has lived in this 1963 rowhome in Northeast Philadelphia for a little over 20 years. Each night before I go to sleep, I lock my bedroom door. Since I was young, I frequently have very serious dreams ranging from premonitions, multi-layered false awakening, and graphic nightmares. On occasion I have experienced sleep paralysis. So, with that said, here is what is happening.
About two or three weeks ago, I went to my room, as usual locked my door, and laid down. About three to five minutes later, my door shook and jolted as though someone grabbed the handle and tried to get in. I having been watching horror movies because – Halloween – refused to even look and ignored the noise.
Many nights passed and nothing happened, then, about four nights later after having my normal routine pass and waking up, I find my door unlocked and not entirely closed. I write it off as a slip of mind by a tired me, partially forgetting the previous event.
And that leads me to last night. We had a small party and it was daylight savings, I didn’t get to bed until about 4am but went through my normal locking and laid down. Around 8am I was jolted out of my sleep from two pounding knocks on my bedroom door. I thought it was my family waking me up, but no knocks followed and I later found that no one was awake at that point.
I have tried every day explanation, and I have nothing. There is nothing in my home that can solve it – my three cats included. I have read dream meanings, to see if maybe that would help and they lead me to roads like a death in the family and to a revelation coming my way. I would love input and to know whether to be concerned.
Thank you in advance.
