hello ats i want to share a few events from when i was little
lets start from when i was really little, once me my mom and dad lived with my gma in a 2 story house
i remember once in this house alot of things, my thomas the tank engine collection, a cake with really tasty cookies on it and ALOT of chucky nightmares(serial killer doll from the childs play movie series)
well here is one event i recall i was in the attic all alone and i must have been dreaming but i dont think i was, that these two puppet people popped out of the staircase and were talking to me, i dont recall what was said but i recall being really scared i dont recall what happened afterwards
i believe i was about two when this happened
once when i was older(and i havent talked to anyone about this expierience) i think i was 4 or 5 i was spending the night at my other gmas i think i was dreaming but i was laying on the couch and this lady was standing in my living room, she had light all around her, and outside the window it apeared to be day(which was wierd because im pretty sure it was night) i dont recall much details but for some reason i had a pencil and paper and being a little kid asked a silly question, i asked her how to spell my name, and she spelled itand i wrote it down. i dont recall falling back asleep or anything afterwards, i told my mom this and she told me i saw an angel, but looking back im doubtful, the window showed daylight, i asked a dumb question, and i did not have the paper with my name on ot the next morning(or the pencil for that matter.
ok lets move ahead a few years i was about 8, i woke up in the middle of the night and looked at my wall and was horrified by what i saw, this will come off as crazy, but there were giant bugs crawling all over the wall! they were the size of my fist! flys ants spiders, and a few millepedes, a plethora of creepy crawlies
i jumped up and turned on my light and they were gone, no sweat i imagined them, or so i thought, once i was convinced i imagined this, i shut off the light to go back to bed...guess what? they were back! i eventually fell asleep and it never happened again
lets go ahead to 10 years old
i woke up one night to get a glass of water, i walke 5 feet out my room and in my dining room and i was shocked by the sight of a shadowy black jaguar(or a panther it was difficult to tell! i was suddenly not so thirsty and booked it back to my bed and under the covers.
thinking back about this event the shadow jaguar/panther looked just as surprised as i was and before i turned and ran, i remember it just sort of disapeared, not a poof! but a like quick melt out of existance
has anyone had any similair expierences? any explanations?
i do not think the angel one was real and i probably imagined the puppets, but the bugs and the big cat i am pretty sure were real
also i think that when were really little we are really suseptible to hallucinations but who knows

In children, however, hallucinations can be part of normal development or can be associated with nonpsychotic psychopathology, psychosocial adversity, or a physical illness (1). The first clinical task in evaluating children and adolescents is to sort out the most serious and worrisome hallucinations from those that are less pathological.
Hallucinations can be defined as perceptions in the absence of identifiable external stimuli, excluding eidetic images and imaginary companions.

No, and I'm not calling you a liar either. I do believe in the paranormal. But what I mean is that, especially for someone like me who is a very light sleeper, I will wake up and be in between awake and asleep for a little bit. Sometimes i'll see things but when I really wake up, or I get startled, it's gone.
