Nice thread, OP. star and flag.
I personally have only experienced this twice.
When I was a child of about 12 I left from a friends' house to walk home one night after dark, it was later in the summer. I didn't return home for
over two hours, it was a 10 minute walk.
Couldn't explain where I'd been, didn't know anything as to what happened to me. My mother was pretty frantic, as you can imagine. Since that night
I have a vivid reocurring dream that is very similar to the stars flashing by that you see in Star Trek shows etc, as well as what might be a memory
of being lifted up skywards from a standing position as I got to the end of the street where I live. Possible abduction experience, I dunno.
The kid I had been visiting had been my best friend ever since kindergarten, and we were almost inseperable to that point. We stopped visiting each
other soon after that episode cause he thought I was "weird", but couldn't put a finger on why. I've had trouble making close personal friends ever
since, and even in my 40's, really only have 1 friend and wouldn't really call him close.
Quite a few relationships, but all have failed in less than 2 years, as I won't let anyone get real close. My mother even had a doctor examine me for
sexual trauma at the time as she thought it might have been a "memory blocking" type thing, but no evidence of anything was found.
Also, my mother and I went to the opening night of "Dances with Wolves" at the cinema. According to IMDB would have been 1990, I would have been 20.
I completely blacked out (it had never happened before and to my knowledge never since) about 5 minutes into the movie. My mother couldn't wake me
up, said I was in some sort of trance, just staring off into space, eyes wide open, didn't breath and didn't blink (for 45 minutes), was apparently
like a statue. I came to about 45 minutes later to find paramedics standing around me and the movie theatre cleared out. Turns out that they
couldn't move me, they would have had to have carried me out in the sitting position as they couldn't even move me manually to put me on a stretcher,
I was absolutely rigid. It worried her a lot at the time. We haven't spoken of it since, and we never told anyone else about this episode before
Couple of things to make everyone go "hmm". True stories.
To cap it all off, the 1 person I can really call a friend has been declared legally dead 4 times, woken up in the morgue 3 times, and does some VERY
interesting things with electrical power. I've seen him go up to a car with a dead battery, hold his hand over the battery, concentrate, say "try it
now, should get you to the battery store" and the car started. Not surprisingly, he thinks death is very overrated. He is also a telekenetic,
clauraudient, clairsentient, and can heal through touch (all proven).
