I was tossing up whether to post this here or in The Gray Area because it deals with UFOs a bit. Also I have mentioned some of these things in
other posts briefly but this is a timeline of where I am now and I'm wondering what made me change.
I'm twenty one years old now.
When I was seven years old I had my first UFO sighting. There were actually two UFOs, but I count it as a single sighting. I was lying in bed at night
and I looked out my window to the west. I don't know why I did though. There is a two story house next door, well a third of it is two story, so
there was a gap of sky between the second story and the big chimney on the first floor. Right in the middle of this clear view of the sky were two
bright star like objects that looked like they were playing tag, chasing each other around in a circular motion, very fast. I remember thinking to
myself "wow they're dancing", weird terminology but that was my first thought. Around this time I really got into UFOs and aliens, drawing them and
watching Unsolved Mysteries whenever it was a UFO story. I was buying alien books out of the Scholastic pamphlet when everyone else was buying car
Roughly one year ago, maybe a bit less, I was browsing ATS and found a thread on tuning into ET contact. As I was reading the OP there was a loud
cracking sound coming from the kitchen. I even saw the flash of light that went with it, like nothing I've ever seen. It was a bright morning too, so
it had to be a big flash for it to be seen in another room on the other side of the hallway.
A few days later I tried out an ET contact meditation that was posted by the same OP. I just listened to it at the computer desk with my eyes closed.
About half way through, I undeniably felt a hand touch and rest on my left shoulder. I could feel the individual fingers, and it had a warm and
reassuring feel that come with it. Somehow I got the impression that it was a blond female, don't ask me how but it just popped into my head. I
didn't turn around out of fear of what I might see.
Now a week or two after that I had another UFO sighting, which was connected to me telepathically or via mind control. I walked into the same room
where I used to use the computer and had this sudden urge come into me to look out the window and to look up. It was night time at this point. My eyes
immediately locked onto a bright star like object directly above me, and I watched it glide out of the atmosphere to the west. It was very bright and
had a slight wobble to it as it accelerated. I believe 100% that the thing pinged me to get my attention, because it's like your mind is being taken
over for a small moment, and it took off as soon as I saw it.
From this point on, I started heavily researching meditation and OBEs and started experimenting on my own. I also started reading about vegetarianism
and watching hidden camera videos from slaughterhouses. It was a sudden change, like overnight. I decided I was going to work to a vegetarian diet and
phase out meat, starting with red, chicken, and finally fish.
On one of the first nights I was studying OBEs I got sleep paralysis for the first time in my life. I was lying under the sheets with my arm stuck out
the side of the bed, but I could still see through the duvet and the room appeared slightly brighter than it usually is at night; I could see the
curtains, end of the bed and the walls. When I was aware of what was going on I saw, and sensed a female humanoid figure come through the ceiling, go
around my bed and grab onto my exposed wrist with both her hands. She started to pull at me, pulling me upwards. She had a slightly foggy appearance
but I could make out that it was a female with a slightly built frame, long blond wavy hair, and was wearing some kind of one or two piece outfit that
came in at the ankles and wrists, like they hand elastic bands at the ends. It wasn't tight fitting, slightly baggy. I couldn't make out her facial
features. See seemed familiar to me, somehow.
To me, this was not a hallucination. I have a theory that sleep paralysis is when we wake up when our astral body is either leaving, or re-entering
our physical, and it gets stuck, or causes us to wake up for some reason. I believe this because I could see through the sheets that were on top of
me, and I thought I must have been seeing with the eyes on my second body. This could have been why the room was a bit lighter. Anyway I made another
thread about this idea...
Was this thing trying to help me out of my body? Did it know I wanted to achieve an OBE? Was it the same "thing" that touched me during my first
meditation? I'm reading Journeys out of the Body right now and Bob Monroe said when he was ready to leave the physical he would sometimes feel
"people" assisting him, putting their hands under his arms and lifting him up.
I haven't had a successful OBE yet but I've gotten close I think. To the point where you are nearly in the astral plane, and you can hear things
like voices and footsteps (slightly scary :wow
and you feel like you're sinking or lifting up.
I'm eating a lot of vegetarian food now, and still eat a bit of chicken and fish. But I've enjoyed not having red meat or lamb. The switch to semi
vegetarian could be a coincidence but only days before that I would never dream of giving up a big juicy steak. It was like a sudden change in my
mindset. Now I am very conscious of the environment and I'd like to start growing my own fruit and vegetables so I don't have to deal with the
processed crap from the supermarket. Sound weird for a twenty one year old guy?
I'm also meditating regularly and I still do the ET contact meditation whenever I can. Actually, I remember talking to another ATS member who has had
some very personal UFO sightings after doing this meditation, so I think it can be very powerful if used properly.
So back to my original question, now that you've read everything that's happened. Do you think it's possible that I was influenced into this
lifestyle by whatever is trying to contact me? I've read about various contactees saying the humanoid ETs encourage a vegetarian diet, but that
wouldn't make me change so drastically. Whatever it is I get the feeling it wants to assist me in some way. Could it be the influence of a spirit
guide, encouraging me to live a healthy life? Or could all of it be a big chain of coincidences? It's possible.
It could be just me maturing as a person.
