Knock At The Door And...no One There?
Posted 31 July 2013 - 10:40 PM
This has happened to my brother and I twice (hopefully mentioning it won't bring notice again). Both times it has been at the back door and there were two sets of three knocks. We're certain it couldn't have been someone playing ding-dong-ditch.
The thought did occur to me that it might be prophetic according to what I've read on the topic ie, that someone close to you is going to pass. It also occured to both of us that there may have been a very, very slim chance that it was a friend that had passed many years ago that would mess with us by going around the house at night, knocking on the back door and our windows, in a game.
These only came to mind AFTER what I've been told & taught by my old-school Southern mom: if you hear knocking on the door at night, especially a door that isn't easy to get to that leads outside, NEVER answer or open it: you could let someone or something in.
Anyone else experienced this or heard rules concerning it?

I haven't experienced this type of thing, but my grandma and grandpa, as well as my Uncle Bill on my mother's side had this happen to them twice in the same week.
My grandpa told me that he and my grandma both heard three loud knocks on the back door at around 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and my grandpa ran to the door to find no one outside. Now, this house is a duplex and my Uncle Bill lived in the other side, but it could not have been him because he was eating supper with my grandparents at the time this happened. They all heard the same three knocks two days later at around the same time. What makes this story more weird is the fact that my Uncle Bill heard the same three knocks on his back door (the second time). I have no idea if anybody in the family passed away that week, but my grandparents and my Uncle Bill never heard those three loud knocks again. No younger kids lived in their neighborhood either.

My SO had gone to the supmarket which is about 5 minutes drive and I expected him back. So naturally thought he had walked through the door and gone straight into the kitchen. I then heard my name called as did my daughter who was three at the time and she reacted by calling "DADDY!" as she ran I to the kitchen. Then she came back and told me daddy wasn't there. As I remember It I heard my name called again and thought it a it weird as this wasn't the first time I've heard my name called while I've been home and my SO has been out. It's happened a few times in the last couple of years.
I thought about it for a minute then called him as I thought perhaps he came home then went back out and we didn't hear him go out. He answered and I didn't mention anything that happened. I just asked if he had come home and gone out again. He said no he was still in the store.
I told him that evening and he didn't really say much as he was Very skeptical at the time.
To cut a long story short, since these incidents, I've heard my name called a few times and the same thing has happened to my mum at her house recently. But my partner has been starting to feel weird in the house as though something is following him through the hallway and stairs and in our kids room. Since these feelings he's been hearing knocking on our door.
Not just the once but it's happening at least once a week. I've spoken to our neighbours since and some of them have mentioned seeing dark shadows in their houses or weird noises upstairs.
These are newish houses less than 6 years old and the land was just a small piece of wasteland for years. Even google maps still show it with no houses.
The neighbour on the far end has heard knocking on her outer wall on the upper level where her kids room is. She can't explain it but she says it always happens when she is home alone with the kids and her partner is at work. It is as though there are neighbours on the other side of the wall. Her oldest girl has heard it too.
Since a lot of other weird things have happened my SO has become more of a believer. I keep hearing knocking on the front door and so does he. It is starting to really bug him as he cannot explain why he keeps hearing this knocking going to the door and there is no one there, I'm trying to ignore all these things. Well, I was until a few weeks ago when I saw shadows on the landing. I asked him to go and see if my daughter was walking about upstairs. He went to have a look and she was sound asleep. He came back down and literally two minutes later we both heard an almighty crash as though someone had thrown a brick through our upstairs window. Thinking about our kids we both ran upstairs to check them and still they were both asleep. I'm surprised because it was loud enough to wake the whole road. No windows were open no breezes coming in. So I checked the bathroom and the shower rail had come off of our wall. The shower rings were all out of the curtain and the curtain lying in the bath. We still don't have a good explanation for that so spent half an hour trying to fix it.
There is nothing bad here, we would feel it but we can't explain what the knocking is. We get acorns from the oak tree out back come down and hit our back door often but that is obvious as to what it is. It sounds like an air gun pellet hit the door and bounce back. The knocking on the front door is more like someone knocking on the glass with one or two knuckles. It's a softer tapping and its usually twice and not just the one tap.
The Aliens said I could take a friend next time. Apply below ......but no mad people!

This made me feel so much better!
A few years ago I lived with my sister who was out with her friend for the night, whilst I stayed home.
I was sleeping. My bedroom door was open, and I could see the front door from my bed. I was woken by my sisters key in the door. I sat up and watched the door open, my sister and two of her friends enter, laughing and giggling. I asked if they had fun as they took their shoes and coats off, they chatted for a bit then they went to the kitchen and I went back to sleep.
So I was rather surprised when a few hours later I was woken up by the whole thing happening again! When my sister came in I said 'but you're already here??'. I even went so far as to search the house, expecting to end up with two sisters and four friends XD
To this day my sister says I was dreaming. I'd say the same thing myself, to be honest, but I just know myself too well. I can tell a vivid dream from something genuinely happening.
What I find strange is the two friends who came in with her; they had not planned to come home with her and I had NEVER MET ONE OF THEM BEFORE and yet when I had seen her come home the first time, the women were exactly the two that came home with her when she ACTUALLY walked in. My sister had only met one of them that night, and so had not described her appearance to me, and yet she was exactly the same person both times.
