When I was younger, my dad used to say it every night as a prayer. My mother would come by later in the evening to see if I had a backpack, books, or just a jacket hanging over my desk chair. In my room, it was the only one. As I got older, they didn’t have to remind me anymore because the term was ingrained in my mind. I could hear my mother walking even at night. She probably wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t be sitting next to anyone at night.
I had to move my chair out of the way so I could get out of bed. When I did that, an odd thing happened. The chair looked like it weighed more than it should have. The light came back all of a sudden. When I pushed the chair, it looked like someone was sitting on it and then got up when I moved it. As a result, I felt a little tingling in my spine. When I was sleeping, I had the feeling that someone or something was watching me.
I was alone in my apartment on a cold winter night. My fiancee spent the weekend with her mom, so I didn’t have anything to do on Saturday night. I live in a small one-bedroom apartment, so I have to move things around all the time to make room to move.
Is it true that ghosts and other spirits can “sit” in a chair that is empty and near or in front of your bed? If so, are they good people or bad people? My reading and meditation armchair has been next to my bed in my bedroom for almost a year, and I sometimes wonder if the saying is true.
Do you have a chair we could use? Mine is covered with a pile of barely dirty clothes from the week, which looks scary at night. I’m curious about where superstitions come from.
If you really want to make your bedroom as warm as possible, you shouldn’t have a cell phone that rings and buzzes all the time. Aside from the constant influence of social media, cell phones may be bad for your health. Even though there isn’t much proof, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has called the RF frequency that cell phones give off a “possible human carcinogen.” Even though it hasn’t been proven, it can’t hurt to stop using your phone at night. Also, HuffPost research shows that the blue light from cell phones can stimulate our brains when they should be shutting down for sleep. It can also stop our bodies from making melatonin, which can make it hard to predict when we will fall asleep. (Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t bring your phone into the restroom.)
