I must iterate before I contribute, two things; that this is my first post, certainly, and that I apologize for otherwise "bumping" a somewhat aged
topic--but proceeding to my second iteration, that I have been observing the forums here for quite some time, which, for someone such as myself, is an
unusual undertaking, since I typically have no interest in message boards or comments of any kind online, just content, but I feel quite a growing
affinity for the community I perceive to be active here at ATS. So, I have been compelled to formally join. Essentially, what you guys discuss quite
intrigues me on a fundamental level that I cannot find elsewhere online, so thank-you for the indirect welcome--that magnetic pulse that seems to draw
us all here.
My preamble with its many subclauses aside, as I was thinking about how I might begin contributing to the discussions, I noticed this topic, and it is
one I was hopeful to initiate had it not already been started. I have encountered spirit knocking several times in my life, and often in positive
ways, although once enabled to start a thread, I can discuss my paranormal encounters more exhaustively, as it entails the more negative and unusual
of my experiences. But, I have noticed, since perhaps as early as my teenaged years, that whenever I needed to be awoken or reminded of something, and
always or only whenever in my room at the time, wherever I'd happened to be living, a disembodied knock would make itself audible, always twice, at
precisely the time--hour, minute, whatever--I had mentally considered to "set" my internal alarm to, and regardless of whether I had set an actual
alarm clock or temporal reminder.
It sounds maybe ludicrous, but without fail, every time I mentally make a note of wishing to rise at a certain time, or to remember to do something,
this mysterious double knock makes its sound resonate in my room. As I said, it is not only when I fall asleep and need to get up, and not only in one
home or location, as this phenomenon has been going on everywhere I have stayed and required a "wake-up call" and this paranormal form of such has
It is never unsettling, and I have come to expect it, though only seem to take note of it once I have been "reminded" (woken up or remembered the
task to be remembered). It sounds like a fist rapping the wall or floor in whatever room I am in when it needs to remind me, and it raps the surface
twice only. I have tried knocking back or speaking with whatever entity it might be, but it never replies. It also knocks only but always whenever I
need to wake up for or remember to do something, at varying times, so never the same time everyday, as my schedule is quite peculiar. I am always
overcome with this tranquil fulfillment when I hear it, but it is unusual.
This week, I ended up falling asleep while awaiting the completion of a task downstairs, just some housework that was time-dependent, and I did not
have any dream I could recall, and did not set any temporal or physical alarm clock, but as I was roused from my sleep (I otherwise would have
forgotten or slept through finishing-up downstairs--I was upstairs in bed), this gentle, reliable double-knock nearby on the floor or wall woke me. I
also heard my papers rustling, as though someone was leafing through them--as I was looking across the room at my papers completely untouched. The
sound was distinctly coming from that direction.
The papers, coincidentally, were atop a box of my deceased father's belongings, though I did not get a sense that it was his presence, I could not
identify it, but this reliable, gentle but firm knocking, woke me up in time to finish my chores without burning the house down or making a mess, and
the sound of the papers reminded me I had documents to finish.
I tried knocking back and uttering a thank-you, but nothing replied. This sort of thing seems to follow me and always "help out" in such a way. I
never say out loud anything like, "Universe, please wake me up for this important event or task" or anything similar, I just casually think it
before napping or doing something else, and without delay, this double-knock, wherever I am, is heard, and I am reminded. It is very calming, and so
gentle but just firm enough to wake me or get my attention, even if I have headphones on.
This post is quite long, but I hope it can engage the others interested in this topic of spirit knocking to voice whether they have a similar style of
knocking that actually helps them as mine does?
All apologies for my verbosity, and I am quite elated to be able to contribute, and look forward to starting some threads about my own experiences
which have more complex import and unease.
