I am curious what other people make of this...
In the past I have seen very small orbs of light (around baseball sized) flash off and on around my house. Other people have also seen them and I
never worried too much about them. As crazy as it may seem to some people I have come to accept that my house is haunted and I never get bent out of
shape over some of the weird things that happen here like lights or water turning themselves on or doors opening by themselves. Nothing seems like it
wants to harm me. This has gone on for 5 years.
Several weeks ago something different happened. My bedroom window faces a structure with lights on 24/7 so we have a black out shade that extends
past the window and then over that we have a set of heavy duty vertical blinds. Not much light gets in past those two window coverings. I was
sitting on my bed in the middle of the day, the window coverings closed, the overhead lights in the bedroom on. One of my cats was sitting at the end
of the bed. Movement caught my eye and I witnessed what looked like a huge orb of bright white light shoot out of the wall and kind of hang in the
air before it blinked out. It even had a small tail like a comet. I would estimate that the ball of light was basketball sized and bigger than
anything I had previously seen. Immediately after seeing the light I felt what I can only describe as a wash of electricity pass over me. Starting
at the top of my head and slowly moving lower I felt this tingling sensation that traveled down until it reached my feet and dissipated. I looked
over the cat and he was crouched on the end of the bed and his hair was half standing on end.
I have had a lot of weird ghost type stuff happen to me since moving here and I have remained pretty calm about it all but this felt different and I
felt kind of freaked out. I did not feel threatened or that this was malevolent but it just seemed different. I think the physical feeling of the
electricity disturbed me the most. The thought of being scanned popped into my mind since it started at the top of my head and traveled down to my
feet but I have nothing to base this on other than something that I thought while it was happening.
I am open to the idea that this could be some kind of natural occurrence. I thought about ball lightening but the weather was clear and calm that day
and the light came out of an interior wall. There was no sound or smell associated with it. I ruled out a reflection from outside by making sure
there were no gaps in the window coverings. I thought maybe something was wrong with me and I went into the doctor's, explained what I had seen,
was evaluated and had two rounds of tests on my eyes by an opthamologist to see if maybe it was the beginnings of a detached retina but have been
given a clean bill of health. Whatever I saw left an after image when I closed my eyes so my physician doesn't think it was a hallucination.
As I said, I am curious what others think it was...
