If someone had asked me, 20 or 30 years ago: ' Do you think there's a possibility that at sometime in the future, you might see a war, or a murder
or a severe depression similar to the Great Depression ? ', I would probably have replied, ' I guess there's a chance those things might happen in
If they'd asked if there was a possibility, no matter how remote, that I might see a ghost, or have an OoB experience, or even a NDE, I would most
likely have agreed that these were at least possibilities.
But if someone had said to me, 20 or 30 years ago, 'Do you think there's a possibility that you might see a gnome or dwarf or some sort of
fairy-story little entity' -- I would have leaned back a little and studied them to see if they were a bit crazy or just having a joke. I wouldn't
have taken them seriously after that. No-one believes in dwarfs or gnomes, do they ? It's for kids. It's not real. It's impossible. It's too
stupid to even think about.
Then, one night I experienced a weird feeling as I opened a wardrobe.
The room became unnaturally bright
I staggered backwards and collapsed on a bed, face up
Next I knew, I was being pulled by several 'little people' who were trying to pull me into the wardrobe
I went out like a light again
When I opened my eyes again, it was to realise that these small creatures had almost succeeded in pulling me into the wardrobe
I kicked out at them, leapt from the bed and shouted at them
They retreated into the wardrobe
At that point, I had the equivalent of basically a nervous collapse. I was so traumatised that I wouldn't have known my own name if you'd asked
At some point during the experience, I opened my eyes and saw the entities surrounding me. I got a very good look at them.
They didn't speak. I couldn't. At that point, I was simply 'recording' without any thoughts of my own
They were small, but not that small .. about 2 to 2.5 feet in height.
Males and females were present
It's my opinion they do not like humans
In the following ten years, I told only one person, and that was on the night it happened. We never discussed it again
During those ten years, there were no resources of which I was aware that might help me explain the experience. This was in the mid-80s. I did not
have internet and didn't know which books to research. At the time, there was NO discussion, anywhere, by anyone, about 'little people' that I was
I knew what I'd experienced. Under hypnosis I would doubtless be able to provide much more information than has been made available to me by my
Never at any time have I doubted my experience. Nevertheless, it embarrassed me and made me ashamed because it was such a stupid-sounding experience.
I knew if I told anyone, they'd immediately believe me to be crazy
Ten years after the experience, another member of the family revealed they also had experience of the same 'little people'. Like me, they'd kept
it to themselves. Their experience occurred in the same house, same part of that house, as my own. Like me, they'd been terrified out of all
When I finally revealed the experience to others, I learned that at almost that same time, they'd also been contacted by two women at the other end
of the country who phoned to say their home had been invaded by 'little people'. The two women were hysterical. They'd had no earlier
experiences. The two women and I have no connection with each other.
As more information has come to light on internet, I've learned that several dozen households and individuals in the US alone, have sought assistance
with 'little people' which have been seen in their homes. These individuals and families have shunned the limelight and are not connected with each
Westerners in particular who've had an experience with 'little people' run from publicity, do not want anyone to know what they've experienced.
They fear they will be judged 'crazy' and will lose their jobs and reputations, etc. For this reason, genuine cases involving 'little people' are
few and far between.
There is a condition known as Charles Bonnet syndrome which is used sometimes to describe those (many of whom are sight-impaired) who see 'little
people'. The little-people usually seen by the sight impaired seem to be the smaller version of little-people .. those of only several inches in
height. Some of the witnesses have been assessed and medical authorities have been at pains to explain that those tested displayed NO signs of senile
decay or other mental illness. Some doctors have adopted an extremely sceptical view and try to attribute the witnesses little-people experiences
and sightings as evidence of various conditions, as hallucinations, etc.
If I read this (my own post) without experiencing little-people first-hand, I am sure I would be extremely sceptical, if not frankly disbelieving.
Other people's unusual experiences sound flat, unreal. If the person attempts to render them real, it sounds as if they're tarting the story up.
Either way, these first-hand accounts just fail to convince, more often than not.
If I read this post, I'd immediately suspect drugs or alcohol must have been involved. Or maybe the person was dreaming and didn't realise it.
Not in my case. No drugs or alcohol. Not a dream either. In fact, fifteen minutes earlier, I'd been with others, in a car returning from the
There was no reason to expect I'd suddenly have an encounter with little-people or anything else. I just went into a room and opened a wardrobe.
The entire time the experience was occurring, my front door was open. I'd been sipping a cup of tea, glancing at the tv before going to the bedroom.
Fifteen minutes later, approx. the experience was over and I returned to the living room. Tv was still on, tea cup still on the coffee table, front
door still open. It was night time.
It only happened once. Never saw the little-people again. Don't know what they wanted from, or did to me. I remember their faces, etc. quite
Still don't know if they are inter-dimensional entities or flesh and blood.
At one point I wondered if they were part of a government black-op. or whatever they're called, as many 'alien' experiences are said to be.
But I'd been away for over a week and had just returned to my house. It happened only a few minutes after I stepped in the door. If a black-op, how
would they know I'd be returning at that time, or that I'd be alone ?
No. I don't think it was a government operation.
As to whether the little people are inter-dimensional entities or flesh and blood, it's impossible to say. Tens of thousands of people have seen
them, throughout history. Some of those sightings and experiences happened to several witnesses at the same time.
One of the things I do know, is that they are able to manipulate our minds and bodies.
Some might argue that 'we' are not really here in a physical reality anyway.
I don't know .. it all gets too deep for me to work out. They moved my body, I do know that. And they were able to manipulate my mind, too. But
not entirely. I kept regaining normal consciousness. That really seemed to annoy them. And despite their power to manipulate my mind and body, I
was able to withstand their total control .. which implies they do not have total control of us.
I used to think about it a lot, basically because it seemed such a ridiculous experience to have had. These days I don't think about it much. It
happened. Nothing I can do about that. And I have no answers, so don't know what it was for, what it was about, other than it happened and once it
was over .. over .. then I nearly went insane with terror. But not during the time it was happening.
Maybe we get answers after we die
