Wall Knocking

My grandpa passed away two years ago this July. When I took my son with me to visit him before he died I knew this was it and I didn't know exactly how to approach it especially having my kid with me. I brought him into the room and he didn't want to look toward my grandpa but instead kept putting his head back on my shoulder and wanted to leave. It was weird seeing him the way he was with a tumor on his chest and what not but I still wanted to ask him anything he wanted to talk about and wanted him to know that I knew God existed just based on what I have seen etc. From a young age and my father who died twice on a hospital bed when I was really young and told me what he saw.

After my father had ulcerative colitis... My family visited a cemetery ( QUEEN OF HEAVEN in hillside Illinois )

Honestly I was really young 6-7 years old and to this day being 29, I still remember everything I witnessed there and have proof of it in my dads photo album. I saw things that you can't explain and if you tried to people thought you were crazy. That's another story alone.

I didn't want to bring up anything that would be stupid to talk about or whatever else knowing the situation ( he had two weeks to live. ) We talked about small stuff, white sox, president etc. When I left their house my son looked at me in his car seat and asked me, " you ok daddy?"

From there I put my sunglasses on and replied "yea I'm ok" and cried the entire way home. My kid got to me by asking me a question like that.

Anyway, after my visit I knew that would be the last time I saw my grandpa alive and it hurt. He was 88 when he passed away but had cancer and a huge lump on his chest. I was 27 when he passed on and thought it would be easier....

when I got home and thought about things and prayed and cried etc. It lasted 3 days... I wasn't myself and it wasn't easy. I wrote a bunch of things on my computer without even thinking twice or blinking for that matter. I was taken away by how I saw him last and what I wanted to say to him.

I remember sitting on my couch writing a eulogy for him and what I thought about life in general. My wife was pregnant with our second child at the time and was upstairs sleeping. I was reviewing what I wrote about him etc. Asking him if he can show me he's "there" (heaven).

I was alone on the couch downstairs and all the sudden heard a cathedral type of knock (not sure how many but it was LOUD!) I was a little shaken and got scared / goosebumps. I went upstairs and woke my wife up asking if she heard anything because of how loud it was and didn't think she would be able to not hear it. She replied "what? No I didn't hear anything" and went back to sleep. I was going nuts and it made me even more scared / suspicious.

I went back downstairs and it happened again. I asked my wife a second time if she heard it and she replied "no, what are you hearing?" Then I knew it was more powerful. I knew my grandpa heard my crying prayer and the story gets even better when my younger brother visited from an hour away and heard the same thing.

After all that, you then realize, oh, there's someone at the front door.

:lol:

Kidding, of course.

Thank you for sharing your story and welcome to UM.

Hello, I'm new to this forum. I, too, have incidents where I hear knocks on the wall or my bedroom door at night.

I was just searching the internet to see if other people have this experience and came across this forum.

I've been hearing knocks for quite some time. The last incident was Thursday night, or early Friday morning.

In the past the knocks haven't been very loud, but this last one was quite loud.

It was exactly at 5:24 AM this past Friday morning. (today is Saturday evening). It was so loud, and woke me up from a deep sleep.

I usually have trouble sleeping, so The past couple months I've been taking a sleep aid prescribed by my doctor to help me sleep.

My point to that is that I was quite deeply asleep, and the knocks woke me up. My feet never few to the floor so fast.

I went to the door and opened it, but no one there, and there shouldn't have been of course, because I live alone, and I have an alarm on the house,

so if anyone had come in, the alarm would have gone off before they got to my bedroom door.

So that's my story, and I was just wondering, anyone who has had this experience, do you ever get it resolved or get it to stop?

I noticed where someone mentioned they usually have a death in the family close to the knocks, but I have not had that

happen in my family, as of yet. The incidents don't seem to be related to anything in my life, as that I can figure out.

I just wonder if I should "see" someone, a counselor, a psychologist or psychiatrist?

Has anyone here "seen" anyone and can you give the outcome?

My incidents do not happen every night, usually every few months, or so, I will have an incident.

Something similar happened to me at my old house. There'd been this quiet knocking on my wall for a few months, it'd knock once about every 20 seconds. I never really paid any attention to it, since I figured it was just sounds from something like plumbing. The knocking was on the wall just above the head of my bed. One night while I was trying to fall asleep, I was listening to it and, being the superstitious person that I am, rose my hand to the wall above my head and knocked on the wall 4 times. A moment later, it knocked the exact rhythm back to me. It scared the hell out of me tbh. Like I said, it only ever knocked at about a 20-30 second interval. Then I remember jumping out of bed and going out into the hall, and I told my mother that I wasn't sleeping in that room anymore. The knocking was still there and I moved bedrooms till we moved out a few months later.

There were also two other things that happened before this. Once, my mom and I were making food in the kitchen- no one else was in there. We'd set the garbage can on a chair a while ago and the two of us were on the opposite side of the room from it. All of a sudden, it just fell over. The other thing was when I was home alone one and I was in my room in the basement. I wasn't expecting anyone to come home for several hours. Then I heard footsteps upstairs. I kid you not, I swore someone was breaking into my house. I ran to my room and got something to use as a weapon and sneaked upstairs. After looking around for a few minutes, no one was there and all the doors were still locked.

Hello, I am so glad that I found this site and this post. Okay here it is,

My brother passed about a month and a half ago of an accidental shooting and I have been experiencing strange unexplained patterned knocks on my wall for the past 4 days. I say patterned because the knocks are a distinctive pattern and all the same. Now, I have lived in this house with my boyfriend for three years and this had just started happening. The first time it happened it was just my four dogs and myself in the livingroom and my man was asleep in the bedroom.. At first I thought maybe someone was tapping lightly at the front door but when I looked noone was there. I know I wasn't crazy because my dogs heard it as well but they didn't bark.I then, woke my boyfriend up and told him I thought someone might be outside so he got up, checked and saw noone or nothing. There have been three incidents since then, my dogs and I being the only ones to here the knock. Last night, thank goodness, my boyfriend and I were in the livingroom watching a movie and the knock came again and it seemed slightly louder, I just assumed it was so it could be heard over the sound of the television, which it was by the both of us as well as the dogs. Could this be my brother? I've added a couple of pictures of my brother ,Robert Browning . He loved his life.He was a professional skydiver and a Flying Elvi. BTW, my boyfriends name is also Robert. If that helps the top picture is of my brothers ashes being released by the Flying Elvi's and the bottom is him jumping out of a hot air balloon. BLUE SKIES Forever Robert I love you.

This is just crazy! We have had friends over now who have heard the knocking and now, it seems to be a little more aggressive with the knocking. Sometime they are pretty loud now and definately alot more . Even at different places throughout the house. For about a month or so , even before the knocking started, I would tell my boyfriend that it feels as if someone is very lightly brushing their hand on my skin , sometimes my face, my leg but on my hands and arms the most. Does this sound familiar at all to anyone else? Should we be worried? I keep wondering if it could be my brother who past 2 months ago on the 31st. Any one ?

Welcome to UM Tianilynn :st

You might want to get your house checked by an exterminator- quite often critters like mice, chipmunks, squirrels, raccoons, bats, and so on can get into our walls. And sometimes their activity sounds like knocking. I've experienced this myself a few times over the years.

It does sound familiar, and no, I don't think you need to be concerned. And if you and your brother were very close, it may well be why this is happening.

My father, step mother and me were laughing and talking in the kitchen one day when all of sudden there was knocking coming from within the wall. The thing is the intensity of it was so loud. It sounded as if there were dozens of people outside the house knocking from side to side and top to bottom on one side of the kitchen wall for a full 5 seconds....then nothing. We were all silent looking at each other then I ran as fast as I could outside thinking it must have been a prank and I would see the kids running off. Not only was there no kids but the wall outside the house was solid brick. There was no way there could have been knocking from anyone. I went back inside and just shrugged my shoulders. Two weeks later my father was murdered.

Thank you all for your kindness and answers. I think the knocks might have something to do with people passing away. The last knocks I heard were around the time my grandmother passed, so that could be it. I don't want to hear anymore knocking for a long time! I do find it unique that some people experience theses paranormal events. I have never been afraid of the things that I have heard (footsteps walking the hallway when I was the only one home, my name called or seeing things out of the corner of my eye)

I had a few event in an apartment I lived in. I was laying in bed one night and my eyes were closed when something whispered in my ear the name "Devin" It shook me and I didn't open my eyes because I thought something might be in my face. I also had a particularly strange event in this apartment. I was getting ready to go out and had my stereo up very loud, I came downstairs and went into this tiny half bathroom the apartment had. I was listening to the music, fixing my hair and all of a sudden it felt like 9000 people stepped into that little room.

I turned around seeing nothing, but feeling everything. I think I was shocked, I wanted to know what it was and I stood unmoved for 5 minutes. I finally had to leave as it felt like they were closing in. I quitely shut the light off, turned off the stereo and walked to the front door and stood with my back against it. I spoke out loud " Look, you are welcome to stay here, but you CAN NOT SCARE ME and you WILL NOT HURT ME OR MY PETS" I felt like a fool talking to myself but something or things were in that room. I didn't have any issues after that other than the occasional objects being moved into strange positions and I felt safe the rest of my time there. Other than the knocking and orbs in my new house I haven't had any issues. I have captured a few EVPS, but since my mom passed I haven't tried for any. I'm not sure why, I think I am afraid I will hear her and that would mean she is stuck here and I don't want her to be. Thanks again for reading my long posts. I really appreciate all of your knowledge and experiences.

Sorry for your loss.

I do agree that talking (or negotiating) to these spirits can bring results. I had some encounters and after talking to them they would (most of the time) leave you alone. One incident was me finishing up my assignment late at night (younger good old college days) and there is this shuffling and knocking in my backyard with my neighbours' dog howling and I thought I saw a shadow at the corner of my eye. I told "it" I am just a student struggling to finish this paper and I won't cause any harm to you and I will give you 15 minutes of my time to pray for you (I'm Buddhist) .... and its gone after that.

I have friends that have encounter knocking encounters (paranormal ones) and myself from the above story... but no one passed away. Perhaps because of different culture, I'm from Malaysia. Before someone passed away, we would hear someone calling our names and then a faint or strong smell of Jasmine flowers would linger for less than 1 second... that would indicate someone passing or passing soon.

Haha, I was tempted to do EVP for my grandmother that passed away. But I don't want to because I don't want to hold her back to this realm as well. She is a devout Buddhist nun practitioner so there is no point holding or calling her back here.
