That is, you will wake up from that dream with a high level of intelligence.

You will be able to interpret difficult situations, proffer solutions to problems, and answer the questions of people’s hearts. in some cases, you might become a psychic.

A new season is looming:

Whenever you feel a single tap on your shoulder, it is a sign of change. This is a heads-up that a new season of your life is approaching.

This sign is meant to prepare you for what lies ahead. Most times, you will have this feeling whenever the coming season is filled with challenges and hurdles.

Therefore, you need to develop a persistent mindset to never give in to pressures.

Whenever you feel that tap on your shoulder, evaluate your past season, and allow it to prepare you for what lies ahead.

Most times, this new season might bring about a change in location, a change of relationships, or a switch in your career. You must be prepared to take in all the pressures that are coming without breaking apart. 

Someone is thinking about you:

Whenever you feel a touch on your chest, it means that someone is thinking about you.

That is, your soul twin is trying to make a connection. This means that you are in a period of finding your love.

For example: if you are single, feeling this touch on your chest is a sign that the season of love has finally come, and your twin flame is trying to connect with you.

All you have to do is to become open in your mind to be led to the location of your twin flame. When you feel this tap on your chest, take it as a sign of love, and begin to look forward to a physical connection with your twin flame. 

A sign of encouragement:

If you feel a hand rubbing your shoulder while you sleep, it is a sign of encouragement. That is, the universe is encouraging you to not give up.

For example: if you slept as a result of depression or discouragement from a bad day at work, the soft rub on your shoulder is a sign of encouragement. That is, the universe is opening your eyes to see that your concern is their priority.

In addition to this, the universe is making it clear that everything will be alright.

That is, when you wake up from your sleep, there will be a presence in your room even after the touch.

These two signs are enough proof that your guardian angel has come to check up on you.

Another reason behind the visit of your guardian angel can be for protection.

Therefore, whenever you have this experience, be open to confrontations and victories. In Christianity, this touch is believed to be a sign of victory over enemies.

It is said that God will give you that touch to reveal the plans of the enemy and the victory that you have attained.

Therefore, there is nothing to fear whenever you feel this touch on your body while sleeping.

I feel someone touching me but nobody’s there; is it a ghost?

Ghost in the room

It does not have to be a ghost. Several things contribute to having this feeling. Whenever you feel the touch of someone without any physical presence, it might be a sign of spiritual sensitivity and alertness.

The universe might be bringing this sign to you as a sign of a change in your spiritual season.

Furthermore, your guardian angel can come in this form as well. Therefore, it is wrong to assume that the touch of someone without a physical presence is a ghost. 

The only way to conclude rightly is to be on the lookout for the following:

  • Were you thinking about a deceased loved one?
  • Did you lose someone within the space of 2 months?
  • Were you sleeping in the room of the deceased?

If all of these factors are present, then it means that the touch is from the ghost of someone close to you.

Could it be my guardian angel?

Guardian Angel with me

Whenever you feel the touch of someone while you sleep, it can be your guardian angel.

However, it does not mean that you will always get this spiritual meaning. Sometimes feeling this touch is not going to be your guardian angel.

Therefore, before you conclude, check out the variables around this encounter.

Certain things you need to check are:

  • Where did you feel the touch? For the touch to be the sign of an angel, you must feel the touch on the right side of your body. Without this, you must not conclude it to be the sign of your guardian angel.
  • What happened when you woke up? Whenever you feel the presence of someone in your room after feeling this touch, it is the sign of an angel. However, if you don’t have this aftermath experience, then it is not an angel.

Could it be just a dream?

Fake dream

No, it is not a dream.

Whenever you feel the touch of someone while you sleep, it is not a dream. This is a real experience.

Therefore, don’t discard it as a dream. The touch is real and that is why you felt it so vividly. This is why you were startled after the touch.

  1. Hi…my name is Chery Daymonl and I’ve been having a couple of unusual experiences in my bedroom at night. The first one started about 3 months ago. A shadow of a man appears several times a night while I’m wide awake and shows up about 4 nights in a week. It feels non threatening and is always appearing standing by by bedroom door.
    The second thing that is happening is while I’m sleeping my legs and feet are being touched. It has happened about 4 times in the past 4 months. When I wake up feeling startled, I can still feel the touch or sensation and I feel like something is trying to get my attention/give me a message. Can you please try to help me make sense of what is going on. I would really appreciate your thoughts or advice on this.
    Thank you.

  2. Hi Cheryl ,I am a born again Christian and I have to admit I also experience this touches more often,I have always woke up past midnight just after the tapping,but I believe it’s God informing me to wake up and pray.either be it a tap from God or the enemy I do not know,but I Know even if it’s from the enemy it’s God who allows it to happen to prepare me spiritually through prayers.

Something heavy was laying on my back I could feel itis breath and I woke up and lioka tmy son I couldn’t scream or move and it was still something heavy laying on my back what could this be?

  4. What if you feel it when you’re awake? I feel things moving all over me lately. I felt something massaging my hands the other day in circular motions. I feel what can only be explained as fingers drawing all over me but mostly my forehead and feet. Sometimes I get a tightness in my sacral chakra, usually whenever I think of the one I love. I did once feel something take my right leg and move it while I was sleeping so that I rolled over. I was so sleepy that it didn’t bother me. I feel much more than this but I’m just curious what is going on with me.

    1. I just had a similar experience last night. It was about 3 am and I woke up and something was ‘making’ circles on my foot. I was wide awake and I pulled my feet under the covers and cowardly pulled the covers over my head and couldn’t fall back to sleep being pretty creeped out! My husband was still asleep and my dog was awake on the other side of the bed.

    something scarier I’ve seen was when I was in the hall. The light in my hall went from bright to dim as soon as I looked in the mirror

    one day late on my bed I felt whispers inside me calling my name.

  8. I felt like a cold hand on top of my right hand at times It felt like my hand was being stroked.
    Another time a few days earlier it felt like someone was sitting on me ( my lap area) whilst I was positioned sitting upwards on a chair, another time a few weeks ago it felt like a cold hand on my right shoulder and a light breeze around my ear.
    None of this has worried me but I’m not sure what to make of it or the message that’s been said.

I usually sleep alone and this one night I’m sleeping my on stomach my face turn to my closet all of a sudden I get like a dream where I am reading something off a small screen tell me not to move and that because I’m gonna feel something all of a sudden I feel a hand with pointy fingers stroking my hair and I can feel it I opened my eyes a little bit but I was still reading that screen then I felt it the second time and it stopped for a minute until I read to not turn around but have in mind my eyes were half open then I feel it again and this time I felt like my heart sank in the bottom of my stomach and I felt it touch my blanket like it was trying to pull it down and then I quickly opened my eyes fully and I still felt the touch and the sensation on my head I was scared to touch my head so I get out of bed run to my mums tell her what happened and I started to cry too ha
    I told her to come and lay next to me until I fall asleep and she did. I’ve never felt something like that.

  11. can someone tell me, i fell asleep and instantly i felt 2 touches from fingers to my forehead and when i opened my eyes i saw an old hand for 1 second, and i fell asleep again after 2 min and i again i felt hard pinch on my left hand finger and woke me up.

  12. Hi. I had this experience when I was in Grade 3, during my sleep around midnight or something, I suddenly woke up because I felt a hand kept on touching and caressing my hair/head but I saw no one. And even while wide awake observing during that time, I could still feel it moving and kept on touching my head and caressing my hair, I didn’t really had the guts to suddenly hold my head because I was too frightened of what kind of hand could it be, until I just totally past out because of fright.

    What could it be?

  13. I was asleep around 1am in the morning, laying on my back and it felt like something was softly walking over my chest. I had my duvet pulled up to my neck so could be the reason it felt so soft. My first thought was is it the cat but she wasn’t in my room and she’s not that light. It felt like a cat, only much lighter. Then I panicked thinking it’s a rat, but again couldn’t see or hear anything in my room. I dismissed it and went back to sleep and it happened again. This time I was wide awake and alert and looked quickly everywhere but nothing. I laid there for a while listening (still thinking it’s a rat!) but nothing. Fell asleep and no further occurrences. That was the one and only time it happened or that I ever experienced anything like that before. I’m a big sceptic and try to find a reasonable explanation and I concluded it may have been a dream. But I can’t shake it. Once perhaps but twice in the same night? Or I could just be paranoid.

  14. Twice now, something not visible has hit me REALLY HARD on the back of my head as I was sleeping. Both times, I’ve woken up with severe pain at the base of the skull, lasting a few minutes.
    Obviously, my thoughts believe that this is an evil spirit. What are your thoughts?

  15. Hi can you tell me what it means when you feel something pulling back my covers when I’m asleep. This happens to me twice before. The first time I was sleeping and something heavy was on me and I couldn’t talk or move. And the next time I felt my covers being pulled off of me and this time it was morning the other times it was a night, that’s why I sleep with my TV on. Please help me understand this for his very scary to me!
