Hello friends, I'm going to share with you guys something extraordinary that happened with me a couple of months ago. It took me a while to share
this because it was "hard to deal with" at first.
One day I decided to go hiking by myself to watch the sunset from the highest point around my area. I'd never went all the way through on this trail
which is almost circular (you can get to the same place you started without coming back). The middle of the trail was the highest point where I wanted
to reach for the sunset. I would guess that it would take around 4 hours to complete the entire trail without stopping.
As I got to the highest point I stopped until it was dark. When it got dark and the moon was shining I found the night very pleasant and thought it
would be cool to continue the track all the way through. But then after walking a bit I realized that I'd never went that way and that I could easily
get the wrong path specially since it was dark. So I thought that it was safer to just go back the same way that I came. To my surprise (as an
inexperienced survivalist) everything was really different at night and I had no idea which way was the way back.
So there I was at night, lost in the woods without any knowledge or reference to guide myself home. I tried following random paths to see if I could
recognize anything but I couldn't at all. It was dark and I was facing the opposite way that I walked before now, so all features of the trail were
at least slightly different.
I started becoming a little bit anguished, afraid of having to sleep in the woods - something that was definitely not in my plans for that night. I
had no cellphone or any other tool that could help me besides my mind which seemed pretty useless at that moment.
I looked for a place to sit, so that I could quiet my mind, be calm and distract myself by looking at the stars hoping that I would have an insight or
a feeling of what to do or where to go.
Thats when the weirdness started happening. As I was looking at the skies (which was all around me) I started seeing strange lights. Let me tell you
first that I live very close to a big city so there were lots of airplanes and moving lights in the sky besides all the stars. I was looking at the
sky right after the sun went down and I noticed all the lights and observed how they had similar patterns (which clearly showed that they were
But then when I stopped to calm my mind at that moment of angst I started seeing lights that didn't fit the common patterns, they were blinking and
squiggling oddly. Some that had regular patterns simply disappeared and seemed to reappear somewhere else. I started paying hard attention to these
lights and forgot about my situation, they really caught my attention and I had a weird sensation that they were actually presenting themselves to me.
I couldn't tell how far or how big they were. It was dark, they were just lights and they moved in ways that I couldn't really understand. Their
color was mostly yellowish/orangish. My eyes aren't the best so I couldn't really tell if they had a specific shape. They seemed like pure light to
So after a while observing them appear, disappear and move oddly I figured that it could be anything and that I was just wasting my time when I was in
trouble. So there I was again thinking of what to do and where to go.
Suddenly I heard my name being shout like someone was using a megaphone far away and behind the bushes. I freaked out and looked in that direction.
All I saw was this yellowish lonely star right on top of where I thought my name had come from. I looked at it and it blinked once. At this point I
started thinking that my mind was playing tricks on me because I wanted to find my way back so bad.
I kept looking at that weird star asking myself what it was and if it was relevant at all. It blinked again. I was dumbfounded, started thinking that
maybe someone or something was trying to communicate with me and help me out to find my way back.
I thought to myself "If this thing has intelligence and is trying to communicate with me I can probably communicate back. I'll ask for it to do
something so that I have proof that its not only my mind playing tricks on me."
So I said/thought: "Okay, are you telling me which way I should go? I don't know how to get there where you are, I have two options to go from here
and I don't know which trail to get. Could you come closer and show me which way is the right way?"
And bam. The star disappeared and another light appeared right on top of one of the trails (this time the light was more on the side of the mountain
that in the sky, which made me wonder how close and how big these things really were).
I got serious goosebumps when this happened. After I had my "proof" though wild thoughts started coming from nowhere. I started thinking that those
lights could be just "devilish entities" trying to mess with me and give me false hope while making me get even more lost then I already was. I have
no idea why I thought of this, but I did.
I started becoming reluctant to follow the light and again sat down trying to clear my mind and be calm. One more time, I hear my name being yelled
from behind the bushes. Now I was seriously getting freaked out. I was sure it was not my mind playing tricks, I was sure there was something weird
happening and I really didn't know what the heck it was.
I thought how I was screwed already and that it didn't really matter if I got a little bit more screwed. I was lost, had nothing to lose taking a
random path and seeing if it would take me where I needed to go so I followed the light.
After I decided to take the path the light vanished so I continued to walk until I saw something blinking again far away, seemed like it was showing
me the direction I should keep focus on. It was blinking oddly, it was low, on the side of the mountain. I thought that it could be someone else
hiking or perhaps some sort of cabin. All the time I was trying to keep thinking as logically as I could, even after the wild experiences that I just
So I had this idea, I took out my lighter and blinked it once to the light to see if anything would happen. And the light blinked back. I blinked
twice. The light blinked twice. I blinked three times. The light blinked three times and started moving diagonal downhill, became red for a brief
moment and vanished.
I thought it could be a ranger checking with me if I needed help. And that after three times blinking he figured I was in trouble and started coming
towards me with a car (hence the downhill motion and the red light). I kept walking on my path that was heading towards this light. I was already
starting to feel embarrassed thinking that I would have to be rescued and all when suddenly the light showed itself again in the same spot it was
At that moment I started recognizing where I was and that I had gotten the right path. I was happy and forgot about the lights until I was completely
sure that I was good.
Then I finally got to the starting point of the trail that has a bench on an open area, great for stargazing. I sat there and started pondering about
my adventure. Started thinking about how those lights appeared for me and helped me out. Suddenly I saw the hugest light I've seen that night. It was
very very close, just on the other side of a small valley that separated us. Again "on the side of the mountain" instead of "in the sky".
