Tap on the Shoulder

I will never forget that night for as long as I live. I was about 15 years old when it happened, and to this day, I believe that what happened to me will happen to the same people living in that house now.

I had just settled into bed for the night, when I thought I heard someone (or something) walking across the carpet in my bedroom. The carpet was so plush you could tell when someone came into the room. I didn't think much about it and continued drifting off to sleep. When all of a sudden I felt a tap on my shoulder! I turned over expecting to see my mother, but there was no one there! At first I was terrified, but then I calmed down a bit. I put my head under my covers and went to sleep with no more problems that night.

I told my brother about it and he said he had also felt a tap on his shoulder one night. Other strange happenings had happened in that house, but what convinced me that there was a spirit there was when my brother had done something called channel writing. He would start talking to the spirit and start writing what the spirit said. The spirit told him that he had come from New York and had been there since 1985. He also told my brother that if he would denounce Jesus Christ he would make him a rich man. It didn't take my brother long to stop doing that. But ever since I was a little child, I had felt there was someone else in that house except me and my family.
