Trippy Tales #65..."The 3 Knocks Of Death"...Part Two

From "Mysteries Of The Unexplained" (online)

Some call them 'death knocks' - an omen of sorts. Others say it is spirits trying to reach out to their living relatives. I have also received emails from readers who strongly believe the knocks to be from a demonic source.   The question which everyone is asking and one that still remains is, who or what is causing the 3 distinct, loud knocking sounds that so many people are experiencing? Unfortunately,  there is no way to know for sure. One thing is for certain- it's happening, and more & more people are searching for answers.

"Hi, I just posted this comment in another blog, but seems nice to share it here. I came across this site looking for the meaning of the knockings. I began hearing knocks at my room door in early 2005. Then I used to live with my mom and two sisters. The knocks began to intensify,, each time louder, but always when I was about to fall asleep, for which I came to reconcile them with the experience. So, until I was watching tv, in my room, probably at 1:00 am. It's scared the living daylights out of me, and I ran to mom, woke her up and told her, and she told me not to worry. I finally grew used to it, three LOUD knocks on my door almost every night. Time passed by and I move to an apartment on my own, and for probably the first month I heard the knocks on the door again until they finally vanished. My sister at home reportedly heard the knockings twice, then she really began believing me. Yesterday (29/12/08) I heard TWO loud knocks again while I was falling asleep. It completely crept me out. No explanation I can give to the phenomenon nor any site providing some rational explanation for this. Guess I will have to live in doubt."

"Around two months ago I was at home and about 10pm I heard three knocks at the front door, this being very unusual I initially thought it was neighborhood kids playing a prank however as I opened the door nobody was there, ok some stupid prank. Not 30 seconds later I hear it again Knock...Knock...Knock...I ran out front as I was 2 feet from the door and nothing. This got me thinking as there was no time for anyone to run and hide.

Then as I was walking back into the house I hear it again Knock...Knock...Knock however this time it was coming from the back door. Well I bolted out to the backyard and...NOTHING...There would have been no time for anyone to jump a fence nor was there anywhere for a person to hide.


I have since sold my house and now live in an apartment in another state.

I am fast asleep and I am woken up to Knock...Knock...Knock which sounds like it is coming from the front door, I open my eyes and look at my alarm clock 3:00am exactly. I first though I was dreaming, until I sit up and hear Knock...Knock...Knock again coming from the front door. Also this time I was watching the baby video monitor and I saw my son get startled from the knocks so I know that I wasn't hearing things.

I ran like the wind to the front door guessed it nothing.Then as soon as I closed the door I hear it again Knock...Knock...Knock this time coming from a far wall in my living room. I was so tired that I fell right back asleep.

I was discussing this with a co-worker the other day and he told me that this happened to him when he was younger."

"I first heard about the phenomenon of three loud knocks signifying a death when I was quite young through family stories. Back around 1956, my mother's first husband was killed in a car crash. That night my mother's sister heard three loud knocks at the door, but no one was there. They heard the bad news soon after.
In February, 2006 I was living with my fiance in a motel room that was provided to me by the adjoining hotel and restaurant where I was employed. It was reasonably late, around 11 p.m., and after making love we both settled in to near sleep. All of a sudden there were three very loud bangs on the window (it seemed to me to be more focused on the window than the door). They were extremely uniform in their intensity and duration, and had an echo sound, like BOOMboom... BOOMboom... Boomboom.
We both sat upright and I knew there would be no one there. I got dressed and went out to see, and it was quiet. After scaring the hell out of her by looking at her and saying, "Death-knocks," I told her what I knew about them. That scared her even more.
I decided to call my mother living nearby to check on her, as she was suffering from serious cancer at the time. She was okay, and I wondered whether it might be my dad.
I didn't really think about it much after that, but in June that year I received an awful phone call letting me know that my dear friend had lost his estranged wife Sonya and his two-year-old daughter in a car accident. Seven months later my mother passed away from her illness.
Just today I was relating this story to my friend, who had begun dating Sonya a few months before her death. He was surprised and told me that he too had heard three loud knocks at the door of his house after he and Sonya had finished making love on a Saturday morning. There was no one at the door, and looking quickly out the window upon hearing the knocks, saw no one at the doorstep.
I have no idea what this phenomenon is. Maybe an angel, maybe a demon -- who knows? Something out there seems to know a lot about us though."

It certainly does...
