I believe because I would have the worst night terrors when I was a child that they were taking me. My parents say it was the awful. The dreams were
too real. I would also throw up all the time during the night. It was pretty weird stuff.
When I was 15 or 16, I saw a UFO with my buddy when we were driving back from the movies late one night. We were at the major intersection in town (we
lived on the edge of the metro of a big city), but strangely there were no other cars around us. It wasn't even that late, just about 15 minutes
before curfew, which was like 11 or 12, I can't remember. I think 12? Anyway, so this thing, triangle of three lights spread WIDE comes from the
direction of the edge of town, from the boonies, and crosses over the grocery store and heads over Walmart and darts away at incredible speed towards
the general direction of my parents house. As we drove down the road, every single street light went out as we went. When I got home, it was about 10
minutes until curfew (I always checked because my dad was strict). He drops me off at the curb, and as I walk up to the house there's a giant flash
that dazed me for a few seconds. I go inside, and my dad starts giving me crap about being late for curfew! I had lost some time. Not much, but like
15 or 20 minutes or something like that. My friend said he saw the flash in his rear view mirror, looked back, and said he didn't see my anywhere. He
was too afraid and drove off! I gave him so much crap for that, but I might have done the same thing after our previous experience at the intersection
and all the lights going out. After that incident, when I'd be walking with my friends at night, I'd turn off a bunch of street lamps when I'd walk
by. So yeah, they definitely thought I was weird, lol. It happened for years afterwards, but only in the last couple years has it pretty much stopped.
Though every once in a great while it will kick up and start freaking me out. It usually is only in a short burst or something though, say I'll turn
off like 33-50% of the lights for like a 5 minute period. I know it sounds crazy, but if you talked to my friends, even my college roommate saw the
effects when we would go out shooting photos late at night. This one time we went out shooting downtown during a snow storm and the lights going out
really got to him. It was after that when he finally opened up to me that he used to listen to Coast to Coast AM and be into aliens when he was
younger. I never expected that from him, lol, and after being my friend, he's back into all that stuff again, which is cool I guess.
I think what it comes down to is a lot of people are more open minded when they are younger, but as they start to grow they think about how silly it
all sounds and how it must have simply been their childish mind running wild. But as I saw with my friend, when he witnessed my oddity and I told him
my story it brought him back to an open mind. I wish more people could be like that.
Just a few years ago I decided to look stuff up on the street light thing and found some other people that can do it. That was kind of reassuring but
also scary at the same time. Didn't know what to think about that. Why does that happen? Am I charged with some energy? That would be funny, because
I always feel like I'm running out of energy, lol.
The other incident was just a couple years ago. I woke up around like 9am one morning to tornado sirens (yay midwest, lol) and straight line winds
blowing rain water around the edge of my sliding glass door in my apartment. It was so weird, spraying into my living room! Gladly my TV was around
the corner from the window up against the wall or it would have been toast. Anyway, I'm a photographer, so my camera was out on the coffee table or
something like that in the living room. After I'm done running around the living room like a mad man trying to figure out if I'm about to die or if
I can somehow stop the water, I see these crazy gold orbs in the sky in the distance over some buildings. It was really insane, they were all shimmery
too. Not sure how else to describe them. Like they were vibrating at some frequency on their edges. Kind of flickery? Anyway, so I go to grab my
camera to snap some shots, and the freaking thing didn't have the memory card in it! I had never lost a memory card before, but that thing was so
lost. I was just a student at the time so I hadn't accumulated a bunch of memory cards yet (now I have like 4 laying around, which still isn't
much), but as you can guess I didn't get the shot which is crap. Still burns me to this day. Ended up having to buy a new memory card since it
wasn't long before my wedding and honeymoon trip as I searched for it everywhere and it was lost. Turned up right after I ordered my new card, of
course. I mean like within hours of the box coming in the mail. I was so pissed. Anyway, this story is getting too detailed and off track. Still
don't know what those lights were. Checked the airport, no planes coming in within an hour of that time, and they'd be crazy to try in those high
winds. Ended up seeing an episode of, ummm, I think it was UFO Hunters? They actually came to my area because there were reports of the orb things
around here. I actually started crying a little during that episode because there was this one shot that looked EXACTLY like what I saw.
So the point, I guess, is that for me I believe because I can't not believe. It has nothing to do with faith or wanting it to be real. I've lived
it. I'd have to be delusional to ignore what I've seen. I'd have to be in denial. I'd probably think I was crazy if my friend hadn't been there
with me in the car that night. Or if others didn't see the lights going out. I don't know why I've seen this stuff and I have no reason to believe
I'm special. I was in the advanced courses in school but my grades were never great. I was bored easily. In high school we had to take these
personality tests and my teacher said I was the only student she's ever seen who was a "concrete abstract thinker," which is an apparent
contradiction. So I don't know what the deal is. Only thing I can think of medically is that I have a weird immune system and have had back problems
from a young age.
I'm not sure what else there really is to say about the whole thing? Maybe only that a couple years back I had this dream about 11:11, 11-11-11, and
different combinations such as 11-11, 11:11-11, 11-11:11, 11:11:11. I noticed after awhile I'd always look at clocks at 11:11. Especially on my
iPhone. Sometimes I'll randomly pull my iPhone out of my pocket and it will say 11:11. Then I'll just put it back. It's just weird. So I looked it
up and was shocked to find out that it was a thing? This was before I frequented sites like ATS. Even though I was into UFOs, I never really got into
conspiracies and 2012 stuff or anything like that like I do now. Lately I've noticed an increase in seeing 11:11. It has also been followed by seeing
1:11 more and 12:12, whatever that means. When I think back to being a kid, it seems like I remember something about seeing 5:55 on clocks more than
anything else, but not very often, it's like a faint echo of a memory. Just thought I'd throw it out there.
Damn, looking back over this post I look like a crazyass weirdo. I assure you I'm not! Well I'm weird, but not crazy. My wife wouldn't have married
me if I was, lol. She is a very sensible woman, but I feel like she is waking up? I overheard her watching a documentary on Bohemian Grove on Netflix
while I was in my office earlier today. I came out and was like "that sounds like Bohemian Grove?" And she was like "how do you know about that,
have you seen this show before? This stuff is weird!" Lol. But anyway, I'm not crazy and I have friends and a good job and a mostly normal life
otherwise. It's just that I feel kind of different from most people because of my experiences. Like I know a secret that most people don't?
Sorry for the novel, sometimes I just can't stop writing. Hope this thread takes off! Everyone share!!
