Whenever i was young i had this extreme reocurring dream that involved me being in the bathroom. The ligts would shut off the door would lock and it would go dark.THEN the weird part happens, on my toilet would appear a hypnotic spiral that was like the color of radioactive material from like movies. Then a voice would appear saying "Do not look into the eye as you will be in eternal darkness". And of course its a dream i looked at the spiral and from the center a giant mosquito came out and the door unlocks allowing me to escape. As i enter the hallway the mosquito catches me bites me with a painful bite in my dream and would wake up with an itchy point where i got bit. The next night i happened to have the same dream and the mosquito came out and i got a little further and again just wake up then morning. This occurance happened about 12 to 13 days each night getting a little further seeing my mother vacuuming and me hiding under the table before i got bit. Then the dreams stopped. That is until about 7 years later same dream same scenario it happened for 3 nights.I dont know what it was just plain creepy.

I may Have seen something like your childhood creature. I have been searching for similar sightings for many years now. Here is a link to an old original post here on ATS that decribes it. Blonde Werewolf Thing. Let me know If anything rings a bell. Ty ~Hyp

all the events and people are related in our life, a sort of "butterfly effect"
what we experienced in our childhood (even weird) has shaped what we are today.

Strange things certainly i remember from my childhood, a voice called me by my name sounded coming from the dark sky, at another time I dreamed I was abducted, was so real.
Several examples, a couple of incredible OBE when I was about 19 years.
You are not alone, smile, many of us remember everything.

Between the ages of 5-8 I used to see my bedroom walls kind of ripple effect like chucking a stone into a pond, I used to run to my parents up the hallway but while I was running up the hallway I used to see things chasing me.
When I eventually got to the front room (lounge) were my parents were, I used to sit there shivering, trembling like I was petrified and just rambling on about things my parents didn’t have any idea about..

Thinking about it now I thought it was an early form of schizophrenia, and now it’s dormant and will come again. I don’t know what it was or why I had it but I will never forget, it was like a dream but my parents would tell me I did it again...

But now I have nothing wrong with me I didn’t think hehe
but my girlfriend would beg to differ.

Brilliant thread!

I had a lot of weird things happen as a child, I think maybe now I am just a little weird.

Most strange things happen to me at night.

I used to wake up the middle of the night with this over whelming sense of fear regret and guilt I was so young maybe 6-7 but it went on for a while. I felt as though I had just remembered I had killed someone and could not get over the regret, these were accompanied by hallucinations, I would get up run to the bathroom and put the light on in a frenzy and panic to comprehend what I had done, Then slowly the feeling would wear off and I would feel relief and realise I had done nothing wrong and the visions would go away.

I could also see a type of green gas/fog at night and sometimes i still can.

I have a memory of me and my best friend at the time jumping down a full flight of stairs and landing safely, I am 90 percent sure it happened.

Oh i was also petrified of aliens. Spent many nights of my childhood sweating to death under a quilt because I was convinced aliens were coming to get me
Lol thankfully I've changed a lil bit over the years.

I used to be afraid aliens were coming to get me and I had no idea why.

Now I wish an alien would come and get me.

I laugh but it's sad sometimes... it's got me wanting to cross over to other dimensions and all kinds of stuff... to figure out where to go and what to do. I always felt kind of disconnected to everything around me and it's weird because now, very ironically, I feel more connected to the world than i ever have. I feel connected to everything... the universe... everything. That can be bad in moments of distortion and confusion but in moments of clarity, nothing compares to it.
I can't stand the feeling of separation. I absolutely hate it. I try to control my urges as best i can but it is intense.

As a kid I had many instances of precognition. Just random moments where I would see something happen in my head and then those events would play out exactly the same way in front of me. It stopped around 10 years ago although things a little similar happen now. Sometimes my heart will randomly start beating faster, almost like an adrenaline rush, and I just know that I need to be ready for something to happen. Perhaps it's some kind of increased form of what I experienced as a kid because I didn't have the physical aspect of it then.

Other than that, I always had such strange dreams although I didn't have them often. One that I remember most vividly (it's unusual to remember a dream vividly without writing it down isn't it) should have been terrifying to a kid but I don't really remember feeling any emotion. There was this giant creature in the sky that seemed to be made of huge cubes that were constantly shifting and rearranging. There was a central block with an eye that was the only one that never shifted. There were fireballs raining down from it that appeared to be orange tennisballs when I picked one up off the ground. This particular scenario showed in my dreams more than once. I can recall 3 occasions. Once, I was inside my house watching these fireballs causing destruction. The second my family was driving down the highway as if we were trying to get away and I saw many fireballs hit other cars and totally destroy them. The last, I was standing in a field underneath the eye just watching the blocks shift while the destruction was still going on.

The other dream that really stuck in my memory for some reason sounds almost a bit humorous now. The main part was a couple of cars about half the size of the real thing pulled into my driveway. A midget got out of each one and asked me where somebody was at. I told them I didn't know so one of them stabbed me in the leg and they drove away. The strange part is that I felt every bit of being stabbed in the leg yet I couldn't wake up from. I just pulled the knife out of my leg and went inside and cleaned it up. I can't remember any more than that.

Sorry about all the grammar mistakes or likely missing words, typed this all out on my phone so it's a bit hard to review it all.

Nice thread op.

Two things I remember when i was young were , There was voice in out house that spoke to me. I would be 3 or 4 at the time and it lasted until I was about 6 years old. It wasn't a friendly voice, in fact i was terrified of it.So much so i was scared to go to the bathroom on my own right up until i was about 12 years old. The voice would tell me things like "My Mum is going away and she's not coming back" nasty stuff like that, and laugh at me.
We used to have an open fire (coal) and sometimes there were weird soot pictures drawn on it when we got up in the morning. Was along time ago but I still remember it.
The other thing I remember, that was strange was that I could sense death in our house.
I Lived in the country and would go off wandering for most of the day at the weekend. on at least three occasions, I had returned home and was just about to open the gate at the front of the house , when i suddenly stopped and realised something was very wrong. Every time i felt this I would go inside to be told by my Mum that someone in the family had died. Honest , no kidding.
I have no extra sensory abilities any more, but the experiences above are 100% True. Scouts Honour.

Very nice thread op. Though I silently lurk here, I have removed myself from this community.In the past I witnessed the site I loved deteriorate to the same old topics eviscerated by trolls with the same old jabs of conviction. I witnessed such an atmosphere attract the worst of the web with even worse intellects. Here I am immersed in this thread a 2nd time. It is everything this grand site used to be. The atmosphere in here is relaxed, stimulating and very respectful. No one is poking fun or belittling the ideas or experiences that are way out of the box. It Kills me that threads such as yours get little attention while threads of troll fodder excel. I find myself in this thread with a cup of Joe and a dog in my lap absolutely intrigued as in the distant past. Star & flag for you ! I Really have not done that or found the need to log in, in a very long time. Kudos to the participants of this thread as well ! ~Hyp

As a child, probably between 5-10, i would occasionally have this weird vision of random things, and this loud, screaching, scream-like noise. It would just be a bunch of random objects, people, places, and such. I was always terrified of them, and have never known what it was i was seeing, or why i was seeing them.

This does't fit completely, but it is a weird story anyway.

My grandpa one night, was found brain dead at home. Although he didn't have any mental disorders, no heart attack or stroke, no reason for him to have lost brain function. During the night that it happened, while I was sleeping, I had a dream about him. It was just me and him, sitting down in his kitchen. He told me how proud of me he was, and that he knows that I will turn out successful in my life. He told me he loved me (he was a hard man, and that was something he had never said to me before) and that it was time for me to go home)

When I woke up in the morning, i went downstairs, and overheard my oldest sister (i will call her Lindsay) describing the weird dream she had to my other sister (I will call her Michelle). Michelle was shocked at how similar of a dream Lindsay had. They both had a dream with our grandfather talking to them in his kitchen. Each of them were different, and personal conversations. We all decided that we would acknowledge what had happened, but keep the personal part of our conversations to ourselves.

It can't be put off as a 'he was sick, you were expecting it' because he was perfectly healthy going into it. There was absolutely no sign that he would suddenly go brain dead in his sleep. It is something I will never forget.

The first one, I think might be a dream or a false memory or something. It is from a period before my mind really formed so I can't say for sure(had of been around 2 years old, the main memory I use as a benchmark is from 3 years old).

I remember walking into the living room and hearing shouting, gun fire. I could of sworn I remember hearing my dad screaming "they are coming" or something like that, but I remember hearing a single bear.

The only thing I remember for sure is feeling queasy and passing out. A couple of times my parents told me about how when I was like 8 months to like 1.25 years old I would crawl into the book compartment in the living room table stands and take naps in there(was an old style with easy to open doors).

Another one, I remember i had to be maybe 4-6 years old and I was just floating face down. My memory begins as I am floating into the living room from the kitchen, and I remember just gliding/floating face down through the living room to the upstairs steps. I remember feeling emotionless like I was semi-sedated or something and like I was on a "track" of some sort. After I got to the top of the stairs I blacked out.

Then I think maybe 5-6 years old, the one summer the ac in my brother and I room broke so we slept on the floor of my sisters room right across from our room. I woke up around 3 am-ish(forget the exact time) and I remember looking up and seeing a bright light shine through my bedroom window into my sisters room(was on the second floor, semi-rural area). It was really, really bright. I remember waking up my brother but he told me just to go back to sleep. After he drifted back to sleep I looked at it for a few more seconds and pulled my covers over my head and forced myself asleep.

Lastly, I would constantly be waking up wrong. If I went to sleep in my bed as a little kid with my head facing east I would wake with my head facing west. Oddest thing is my blanket would be adjusted properly(like I never moved at all).

When I was between ages 2-5 I can remember hearing voices in my room at night. My parents always turned a fan on before I went to bed and it sounded like someone was talking through the fan. It would alternate between random male and female voices and was almost always distorted or partially unintelligibable. Funny thing is I don't remember it scaring me really at all. It creeps me out a little thinking about it now lol.

Also up until I was about 11 I had lucid dreams regularly. So regularly that I actually thought everyone had them all the time. Didn't find out it was unusual until I was almost 18!

Also when I was very sick I can remember waking up at night, looking at an object and then BAM I "was" the object. I have no other way to explain it really, I was literally the object.

Hope that was worth reading

I thought I was the only one who could hear voices when a fan was on. I hear male and female voices that sound like mumbling. As if someone has a radio or tv on between the walls. I've heard it when I was a kid from about 7 till now, many years so far it has happened. Also, when I was 7 I remember waking up to a bright light shining into my bedroom. It couldn't of been the sun, it was in the middle of the night and there was no sound or noise at all. I was on the second floor and facing a field (we lived in the country) Then I remember waking up in the morning and not remembering anything else. I've always had a feeling someone or something was watching me at times.

I was 6 or 7 and we lived on a farm and raised hogs.

As you can imagine the smell was well,interesting.

My older brother and I shared a very large room and a full size bed.

In our room was also a large closet size area that housed the furnace.

Access to the bathroom was gained by going through our room into the bathroom.

On the opposite end of the bathroom was a door that led into the enclosed back porch and then another that led to the outside.

A bunch of sows had recently given birth.

Before going to bed I heard my parents talking in the living room.

My father was worried that the temperature was going to drop below freezing
and some of the piglets would probably die over the night.

The next morning when I woke up, I was lying on my stomach and trying to wake all the way up.

I kept hearing a strange noise that I could not figure out what it was.

Opening the one eye that was not buried in my pillow,

I saw that the floor was completely covered with newspaper.

Lying with their backs against the wall, nose to tail, was white baby pigs asleep,
contently, quietly snorting through their pink noses..

They were completely around the walls of the room and even beneath the bed.

Weirdest thing I have ever seen.

When I was about 10 or 11 my mom was living in a half-way house. (She was a recovering meth user). I slept over on the weekends quite a bit. One night I saw what I can only believe to be an angel. It was late at night and the house was dark. Everyone was asleep except for me. (Typical. I am a night owl.) I was lying in bed wide awake and I thought I heard something in the living room. (the door to the room faced the living room and it was open.) I picked my head up and saw an incredable pure white glowing thing go from left to right. Right through a wall. To me it looked like the end of a long skirt or robe cuz I saw the natural folds of fabric and a hemline. And since it was the bottom of a robe or skirt, I judge thing angel had to be 30 feet tall. I swear. Kinda hard to explaine. I hope you can understand why it would seem to be 30 feet tall. But the purity of the white light....never seen such a pure shade of white.

Your post reminded me of a recurring dream of Elephants when I was a child.

They used to start off 1 2 and multiply in humbers. I had this "bag" and the elephants would all walk into it, like I was collecting them!

When I was six, I believe, myself and my brother, a year younger, were outside playing on a summer night. Just like now, it is still daylight, going on 9pm. Well, I have no idea what time it was in this incident, just definitely daytime, still. We went wandering away from the family's apartment building, down the street only a few blocks. To this old lone children's play area with a set of swings. This site was located (unsafely, I think) close to a main MidWest river, that devided our hometown. A thick clump of trees though, seperated the swings from the river. Therefore, kinda a private area, then. For something anomalous to happen? So, me and bro are playing there, with a kid I recognized from gradeschool. Then he says, "well I have to go home now, for supper I guess" (something like that) and it was just me and bro.

This is what I only remember ... -immediately next- .

Me and brother are sitting on the swings. Totally still. The sky is velvet black, full of twinkling stars. Had(have) Noooooo idea what time it was. My sibling appeared to me (as I remember) in a state of suspended animation, just staring straight ahead, still as a statue. Then, he suddenly 'animates' back to normal, and we immediately commence homeward. As we approach home, I see that a bunch of people are milling about outside here and there. My sister points at us and yells, "There they are!" My mom comes racing to us and is crying, and scolds that they thought we had been kidnapped, so she had the police looking for us. I had no sense of being gone very long, so I was bewildered by all this.
In the days following that, I would always lift up my shorts leg, to view a geometric shape on my skin. Became obsessed with making drawings of people and animal characters wearing great big shiney totally black sunglasses. I had nightmares of 'Arabs' (guys in white headdress) wearing black sunglasses, running about in this big black limo, trying to kidnap me and ....... my dad, for some reason.

That was 1966. Me and family moved to the other side of town in 1968, and throughout the early 1970's, strange ufo phenomenon occurred to us. which is a whole 'nuther chapter in the ongoing events. In the late '70's, early '80's, the ufo phenomenon 'upped-the-ante' to a whole other level. Thats also another bunch of typing for whenever, maybe.

I don't know if the missing time however, directly relates to the ufo phenomenon.

There are a lot of great stories here. Nice thread!!!

I have posted countless times all the wierdness in my lifie including childhood occurences. The one thing that stands out the most is a recurring dream I had as a young child between the ages of 8 and twelve I believe the dream lasted. They were multiple "dreams" with always the same theme, but some where I was the age I was at the time, 8,9, 10 etc and others I was an adult. I didn't look like I do now. I would have dreams of being in a large castle and get the strong impression it was in Spain and I would have parents that I didn't recognize and a beautiful St.Bernard dog that I loved so much I knew he was my protector. Anyway the dreams were lively enough when I saw myself as the child but the adult ones I'd be totally alone there'd be nobody else and it felt deserted and I would just walk the halls. I always wore a beautiful very elegant old fashioned yellow bell type dress. I had mirrors and I could see I had long black hair that was wavy and beautiful dark brown eyes and tan skin (I think much like Selena Gomez but taller) but I looked so sad. There was a picture we had in my real life in our house that looked like an old painting of this man and in my dream I'd see a similar painting, but the man was in military dress but way old fashioned, there was even armor in the castle's hallways. The man in our real portrait looked similar and in military dress, but not exactly the same, anyway, in the dream when I looked at the portrait in the dream I felt such heartbreak and loss. I instinctively knew this was my husband in this "life"? Whatever it was, whenever, and wherever it was. I also kept seeing the front gates of the castle which said "no trespassing" in another language, I knew it said no trespassing even though I really knew no other language at that age. Anyway I think I met the person in that portrait when I was 16 and I instantly felt a connection to him. However the fear of loss & of being left alone again was so strong I never pursued it, though he did, but I just denied that person any relationship with me cause I strongly felt it would end tragically. Was it a past life cluing me in that I would meet this person again in the future? If it was, why, anyway? I think in the dream the guy was dead, I felt like it was mourning I was doing.

Then there's the precognitive dreams alot of which featured the guy that I think I knew from that "past life recall" dream, if that's what it was. I'd always know where he'd be on a given day at a particular time. I also had other precog's that were just involving other people and things but all of them were inconsequential (no like earthquakes or tsunamis or anything) just mundane stuff like day to day, sometimes something as simple as what a friend would wear to school and so I'd dress similar (and no they would not have told me the day before because it'd be at times when I didn't talk to them and wonder "I wonder what such and such will be wearing and if I should wear such and such or something else" ) Wierd stuff like that. I also would dream of guys that liked me and knew they would make an effort the time and day it would happen or the clue they'd think they made "inconspicuos". But the dreams always told me to prepare me. Lol. Some of the dreams were answers to tests that I never did the studying for. LOL. That was pretty cool. They stopped though after I turned 23 or I shut it down?
There's a lot more but I have written it all before and it gets repetitive. But these were the biggest things that stuck in my brain. I mean until I was 12 I actually thought that I was royalty (I mean to say, that I thought I had dreams of our ancestors and that we had royalty in our family tree). Then I learned of past lives. So I am thinking it must've been a past life and isn't at all connected to the present, except for the soul that would be found here in this one (life) as well. I think I made it happen that We'd reincarnate together, or we both did, I don't know but I do feel we were meant to reunite in a sense, not the entire sense, but to know that each other is ok, if that makes any sense?
