i will start by letting everyone know that i wasn't sure where this topic belonged, so i put it here. if this isn't where it belongs, then i
apologize in advance.
Have any of you ever felt like you knew something, but couldn't put your finger on what you knew? i don't mean something in the sense of everyday
knowledge, but something that you felt was truly important? all my life i have felt this way, and i don't know why. ill come back to this shortly.
i guess you could say that it began when i was a child. i have a problem with sleepwalking, but not normal sleepwalking. when i was a child me and my
parents lived in a small 2 story house in a rural area of alabama. my sleepwalking began when i was roughly 5, and my mother told me that the first
time i walked in my sleep i went down the stairs, unlocked the door, walked outside, and stood in the front yard looking up at the sky. my mother
tells me that when i do these things, i do whatever im told to do without hesitation and without a sound, though the only thing she ever told me to do
was to go back to bed.
my mother said she saw me standing there, and told me to go back to bed, which i did without a sound. this prompted her to put deadbolt locks on the
doors, which i also unlocked in my sleep a few weeks later, and stood in the yard staring at the sky, same as before.
when i was 14 years old, we had moved into the city of dothan, alabama, and we lived in a modest subdivision. we had an alarm system on our house that
required a 4 digit number to deactivate. one night i got out of bed, went to the front door, entered the code, turned the deadbolt, and walked outside
and stood in the front yard staring at the sky.
the most violent experience i had was when i was 21 years old. i was living in the rural area i spoke of earlier, but not the same house. i had gotten
out of bed, and instead of walking out the door, i tried to exit through a window. i disjointed the window (a window measuring 6 feet by 6 feet) from
the frame of the house almost completely, bending the metal frame out to about a 30 degree angle from the surface of the wall. i was not able to get
outside, and i went back to bed without ever waking up.
since this experience i have not had any more events of this nature. i still sleepwalk, but normally my wife says it is as if i am running from
something in my sleep, by the way i talk and act. i have had sleep studies done, but it's hard enough to sleep with all those wires sticking off your
head, let alone even trying to get out of bed to sleepwalk.
now, let me be clear, i don't know why these things happened to me, im not saying i was contacted by or had any experiences with aliens, UFO's, or
the like, or any government project (to my knowledge)... i would just like to know if any of you here at ATS have had similar experiences, or know
people that have. also, i'll give a little about my background : i was adopted, don't know the real parents, led a fairly normal childhood,
graduated college, and now im an air traffic controller.
in regards to my first paragraph, like i said, i have always felt like i knew something, but i have never been able to really put my finger on it, or
describe what i feel like i know that sounds crazy, i know, but im just letting you guys know how i feel. also, i don't know if these feelings of
mine and my sleepwalking are possibly related... thoughts?
in any event, please don't call me a nutjob or anything like that, because i usually approach everything from a logical standpoint, and frankly, i
don't know what to think of all this. my wife brought it up to me recently, and my mother did too, and it just got me thinking, and i wanted to share
them with you guys to see what you think, and if there is anyone out there that has gone through something similar. thanks for reading, and i look
forward to your input. if any of you have any questions of me, feel free to reply or U2U me.
