Does 3 X's Mean Something?

I may be 13, but I have too encountered abnormal experiences or should I say paranormal encounters? The first shocking encounter I had was the year of 2009. My uncle died on August 28 of Pancreatic Cancer. A month later it was like any other day; I woke up, went to school, and came back home from school. I was really tired, so I decided to do my homework and eat a snack. When I finished I went to my room to try to take a nap. As I relaxed and closed my eyes, I suddenly feel some kind of pressure on my right foot (as if it were a foot massage.) I opened my eyes and there's no one there.
I gently close my eyes and try sleeping. I start getting the same feeling. In my mind, I was thinking a lot of stuff. Could it be a ghost or a type of energy? I wasn't sure, but I just put that aside. It was now 9:35pm, I was heading to my room to go to sleep. I fixed my sheets and off to bed. I noticed I had trouble sleeping that night and I was sweating. Later on around 2:34am I tried moving to go the bathroom. I tugged and tugged. I was stuck. I was afraid, but I tried not to panic. I kept of trying to move with all my force, but something wouldn't let me.
I was creeped out by now, so I just ignored it and tried sleeping. The whole night I managed to stay in the same position I had been in (faced down). I woke up at about 8:00am and I was perfectly fine. I was able to move. I was surprised, but I thought it was cause I was weak or something?
Two months pass and it was November. On the 21st my older sister woke up with three X's on her right leg. It was weird because it was in a perfect line, up to down . We let that go and just ignored it.
On the 22nd, my uncle came over. We spent the whole day having fun and enjoying ourselves. Finally it was late so we went to bed. At around 2:00am , my uncle knocks on my door and asks if he could share my bed with him. I answered yes, so we fell asleep. It was now 10:00am and my uncle noticed three X's on his left leg. It was also in a straight line. We found that weirder, but like we did with my sister, we ignored it.
On the 24th I woke up with three X's on my right leg. I was concerned, but I ignored it. I told my sister and uncle. They both seemed surprised. We didn't do anything to do about this experience, but it sure concerned me.
Till this day , I still ask myself "What does three X's mean ?" . Well this was my experience, I'm not asking you to believe me, but what I can assure you is that this story is 100% true.
