Ive been wanting to post this for a good while, and haven't done for risk of sounding like a crazy nut!
However, recently I have been having dreams relating to this "memory" (and not the first time) and tbh its getting on my nerves and I'd like some
suggestions or thoughts where the hell it came from or why, and also ideas why it rears up in my dreams from time to time then dies off.
For the record, Im not sure if any have read my posts, but for what its worth Im a logic thinker, conclude from reasoning, dont have any outrageous
claims or mad beliefs, and neither claim that I have been abducted and forced to mate with cows.
Onto this "memory", as said Im looking for serious suggestions about this as its been with me for 30 years....its the first memory I ever recall, I
remember nothing before it, its vivid as hell, and if I think about it I go cold and sweaty.
Im 2 years old tops, sleeping between mum and dad, we used to like in a fairly old 2 bedroom terraced house that needed modernising (not sure what you
call them in the states). Most of the doors were made of plank wood with latches on (I did say old!) with a hole where you put your finger from the
outside and lift the latch.
In this "memory" Im woken up by a scratching noise at the door, mum and dad are fast asleep, and theres little light except for the glow of the
streetlamp outside through the thin curtains.
More scratching from the door, then, a finger comes through the hole. I remember being petrified like you wouldnt believe, as this finger had a claw
on the end and seemed to have scales. It was very long, quite thin. I cant recall its colour as the light was low with orange tint, and lots of
The finger, pops up the latch, the door opens an inch or so, and the finger retracts through the hole. Im still petrified, and I can feel my heart
pounding in my chest. Door starts to open slowly to about halfway and stops.
Then dead silence for a few seconds, I'm staring at the door, frozen solid, I want to wake my dad whos next to me, but I can neither move, or make
Then, a head appears from behind the door. And this image is BURNED in my mind. Its a bit larger than a human head, seems to be scaley in nature,
maybe a little leathery, colour I have no idea for the same reasons I couldnt determine the colour of the finger.
The eyes, they are quite wide, almond kind of shape and seem to be quite reflective. I remerber a green hint of colour for some reason, no other
colours, just them eyes.
Mouth was thin slit, quite wide though and I remember sharp teeth as the mouth was slightly ajar.
It looked right at me for what seemed like forever, made no other movements, just looked at me. Then I go blank.
Ive RACKED my brain trying to think of an explanation for this, thats both logical and plausable and I come up with nothing. If I was older, 5-6
maybe I could put it down to a scary movie I sneaked and watched, or some pictures/comic book.
What gets me is that Im at MOST 2 years old, why would a 2 year old imagine something as vivid in detail as that?
I thought it must have been a dream? But again I cant make any sense out of why I would have such a dream.
So Im open to suggestions, to me this "feels" like its happened, I remember it from a 1st person perspective, not 3rd, so if someone can provide me
a plausable explanation that makes sense, maybe it will finally go away! heh
Thanks in advance.
