I’ve noticed that while I am praying, and sometimes when I am not, I will strongly feel as if there is some sort of presence behind and slightly above me. Sometimes I hear whispers coming from where I believe the presence to be as well, although I typically can’t make out anything in particular besides my name on occasion.
One thing I have noticed is that I wear a crucifix necklace, and sometimes I will feel it tugged slightly backwards after I feel the presence and hear a whisper.
In addition, there was a time when I was praying one Our Father, followed by 3 Hail Marys, and I noticed that presence while I was praying the second or third Hail Mary. When I got up and looked behind me afterwards, I thought I saw a shadow-like object behind me.
Two weeks ago, I started thinking about my grandfather who passed away 9 years ago quite a bit, and I prayed for him at that week’s mass. I’ve used holy water throughout my house and on myself, so I’m fairly sure it’s not anything malicious, and I’m wondering if it’s him in purgatory.
