Dreams and Sleep

Woken (but not woken) By Tapping On My Neck

I live in a small house with my mum, we moved in around 3 years ago. The other night I went to bed early to start a new schedule of waking up at 6:30 am and going to the gym before work. All went well and I got a good sleep, I woke up once at around 4 am to get a drink but quickly fell back asleep. The next thing I know is that I was laying on my side facing the wall, and I feel 3 very distinct taps on the back of my neck, at first I ignored it, but when I didn’t react I got faster non-stop tapping that started at my neck and moved down my spine.

At this point I felt conscious but I also felt like I was dreaming, I then heard a soothing and caring voice say “Blake, it’s 6:30, you’ve got to wake up”. I turned around and I got embraced by a figure, so I hugged them back, at this point I felt very calm, warm and relaxed. As I hugged the figure, it felt as if my arm was actually around someone, so I asked them, “how is this possible?” and they just responded with, “I don’t know, but you need to wake up”. So I moved the cover quickly off of me, and as if they didn’t want to be seen, they dashed under the cover into the darkness, and I briefly remember seeing a skinny lady with long, blonde hair, then I woke up, exactly as my alarm went off at 6:30. At no time did I feel scared, it was like I knew them and felt comfortable with them.

This is my first experience like this, I spoke to my mum about it and she said I almost described my Aunty who passed when I was young. Experiences exactly like this have happened to my mum 3 times since we moved into this house, except they never spoke to her like they did me, they just tapped her and she woke up.

What do you make of this?

I should also mention that my mum and I encounter strange situations all the time where we’ll think something and then it happens, or we’ll go to message someone (or each other) and they’ll be messaging us at the same time. Just stuff like that.
