So there I was having a great time at my cousin Hugo’s wedding in Mexico City. The music was loud and I was talking to a beautiful woman when my cousin Marco walks up to me and says do you remember being abducted when we were kids?
I laughed and said No! He said you don’t remember anything unusual happening while vacationing at the resort in Cuernavaca?
Again I said no. Marco looked very disappointed; he sat down and visited with us never again mentioning the abduction.

That was twelve years ago and that family vacation he was talking about was in 1979.

When I returned home to California after the wedding I thought about what Marco had said. I did remember the family vacation. It was my brother and I, My cousins Sylvia, Alfonso and Henry on our side of the family. And on Marco’s side of the family it was Him, his sister Letty and brother Hugo.

I remember the eight of us having a great time riding horses, swimming and hiking. The only unusual thing I can remember was getting caught in a lightning storm one night.

That was it! The lightning storm, that’s what Marco was talking about. As I played the memory of that night in my head things just did not add up.

We had walked into town after dinner and now we were headed back to our hotel when it happened.
It was terrifying, loud booms, blinding light and screaming as we tried to get away.

The strange part is that the next day no one even mentioned it. How could something as scary as a lightning storm not be talked about the next day?

I once asked my brother if he remembered that lightning storm and he said he did remember it. I then told him what Marco had said, he gave a nervous laugh and said I should contact Marco and talk to him about it.

I called my cousin Sylvia in Mexico to get Marco’s phone number and email address. She told me that his side of the family was not talking to our side of the family because of a dispute over Grandpa’s will. Grandpa owned a large trucking company and the family was fighting over who gets what.

Not wanting to give up on this I tried hypnotherapy to see if I could recall more information. I even posted about my sessions here on ATS 2yrs ago.

I was told that some memories are buried so deep in the subconscious that it could take many sessions to break thru.

Not having the time, money or patience I more or less forgot about the whole thing until now.

My mom just flew out to Mexico today and will be visiting with both sides of the family. She promised me she would get me in contact with Cousin Marco.

I can’t wait to talk to him about what he remembers about that night. I’ll post an update after I talk to him.

Stevo i would say stay away from hypnotherapy. It can be very suggestive and untrue. You may recall memories you have never had that also are not true. The truth and the memories will come with time and i imagine a chat over a beer with cousin Marco would do more than any hypnotherapy

What an interesting story. Good luck in finding out more.

Very interesting Steveo. Personally I would just get in contact with Marco on your own regardless of the family dispute. It doesn't sound like you are involved in the dispute or your cousin and even so I bet he would take attention should you call about remembering the storm.

Keep us posted.

I called Cousin Marco back last night; he left a voice mail with his cell, home phone and email.
I put the phone on speaker so that my wife could hear Marco’s story first hand.

After the usual how’s the wife and kids’ chit chat we got down to business.

Marco was disappointed that I did not remember much about what happened during our family vacation.

I think he needed validation of this event more than I.

I told him that I remembered the lightning storm but that was about it. He said well that was on the first night.

They came back the following night. Marco, Alfonso and I shared a room together at the resort. He said I woke up screaming holding my left leg. My screaming woke him up to see a very bright light in the room. Terrified he ran to the door to get the hell outta there but the door lock would not work, he said it felt disconnected.

Marco said the last thing he remembered was pulling at the door knob.

I asked Marco if he remembers if any of us kids talked about the events the following morning. He said No, and that’s what makes it so odd.

He suggested that we go back and vacation there again with the hope of triggering our memories.

In the meantime we will keep in touch by email and phone calls.

Wow…………more questions than answers.

This is going to take a lot of time and effort to get to the bottom of this and in the end will it be worth it.

very interesting story. good to hear you were able to talk to marco after all the family ruckus going on.

i agree with said comments on hypnotherapy, and i'm slightly on the fence about you staying in the exact same spot. yes it could trigger a memory for sure by staying in the original room, but also if you stay in that same room, your mind will be working to select which time and events happened on two accounts.

if you stayed at the resort but in a different cabin, then you'll know that any memory you have in that original room where you experienced the incident, is the same night you were there when you were young.

just my take on how i would approach it.
great story and of course keep us posted on future talks and memories.

I really wish I had the Time and Money to explore this event fully. I now realize that is has made a huge impact on my life.

Thats why I'm here on ATS, Thats why I watched the X-Files and never missed any shows on UFOs.

If some one could contact Bill Gates tell him that I could really use his help on this.
