Hello everyone, I have thought long and hard about the two experiences I am going to share, and I have pondered on them for some
time. I never thought I would share them, but I was hoping to get some insight from others about them. I am 38 now, and the first one happened when I
was about 7 or 8.
My mom asked me to carry a box with some stuff in it out to the car, and I remember walking outside and heading down the sidewalk with it. The next
thing I remember is standing at the end of the sidewalk holding the box and my mom was yelling out the door at me asking me where I'd been and saying
something about how she couldn't believe I hadn't gotten the box to the car yet. I am not sure how much time passed, but what I thought was strange
was that as I became aware of myself standing there holding the box, I had this thought going through my head, that now I understand it all, and I had
this feeling of understanding something completely. Okay, understanding of what? To this day I have no idea, and as I have thought back on this over
the years it bugs me as to what really transpired.
The next experience was much more interesting, about 3 years ago I fell asleep on the couch in my living room, and my wife shut the lights off on me
and went to bed and left me there, because I sleep better there than in our bed (sucky mattress).
It was about 1 am or so when I was jolted awake, my eyes opened up as wide as can be and my mouth was wide open like I just took a huge breath of air
as I woke, and there was this light inches from my face, it instantly retreated from me, and it moved up toward the ceiling. I only saw it for about 3
or 4 seconds, but as strange (and stupid) as this may sound, it looked like one of those giant pretzels that you buy from those refreshment centers at
the store, only about twice as big and emitting white light. I say emitting, because it lit up the room somewhat before it disappeared into the
ceiling and was gone. The room was left pitch black and I lay there for a minute thinking "what the hell was that", and "did that really just
happen". The object almost seemed to flap a little as it moved up, the outside part of it went down and up once before it disappeared, like it
flapped, albeit slowly. I have tried to debunk this in my own mind, wondering if it was like a light artifact that you get after looking at a light
bulb, and then looking away, but it seemed to disappear right into the ceiling and then was just gone, and there were no lights on in the room either.
I wish I had run outside and looked around after it went up through the ceiling, but I was startled and was too busy processing what had just
happened, to think to do that. I don't know what to think about it anymore, so I figured I would just tell it like it happened and see what others
think. Oh, and I know.... a giant pretzel??? I honestly wish I had another analogy for it, but that is what it resembled.
I apologize if I put this post in the wrong area here.
Thanks for your time.
