Honestly, crazy as it sounds, I researched until I wasn't scared anymore. I'm not sure how that even makes sense. When I was younger, I would watch one of those ghost or UFO shows (which were rare back in the day) and I would be up all night long, wide-eyed, with every light in the house on. It didn't help at all when I lived in a few places that were actually haunted. Eventually, I got into ghost hunting and studied, studied and studied some more. At some point, I just got over the fear. I can wake up and read about ghosts, aliens and UFO's in the middle of the night now. Occasionally it gets a little creepy but nothing too major.

I think the best way to put it is this: Out of all the things I've read up on and studied about and even the paranormal things I've experienced, out of my 35 years of life, somewhere around 98% of nights go by perfectly normal. If I hadn't lived in houses that had activity, the percentage (which I'm just guestimating anyway) would be even higher. So now, I just assume that I'm going to go to bed and sleep and nothing strange is going to happen. My paranormal experiences are very very few and far between and almost never at home these days. I guess that's why I'm not so scared now.
With that said, I have seen what I consider to be UFO's but never aliens. If I had seen an alien, I would never sleep during night hours!!!

I totally understand!
Things have been quiet for me too for several years...So I thought it could be a good time to start researching or thinking about it again. I guess not, because I seriously can't sleep until the sun comes up.
Melatonin or benedryl just make me miserable because my brain fights the sleep so bad.
IDK, perhaps I will just give it up. I just see the researchers and investigators...and just general folk talking here, and other places and I would like to give it a go myself...if I can fix the sleep deprivation it causes me.

so I can always see whats in my open field of view. also keep my gator near me,


Wouldn't it hurt though, if while you were sleeping with your aligator next to you under the blanket, you rolled over onto it, and it was hungry for a midnight bite?

I was refering to the psychosis and paranioa brought on by excessive smoking over time. Sitting up all night reaD
ding conspiracy theories to the extent where you cannot stop may fall into this category. So yeah I did my research thanks.

Jesus christ the moderators on here should get a job with the Chinese government, talk about excitable moderating bordering on selective censorship.

can you sleep if you dont excercise your brain?
If not,and it would be good to have a poll on "can you sleep at night even if you relax";maybe its just an evolution in mankind. Animals evolved to be nocturnal for many reasons,mostly survival,be it to excape threats or to hunt.

I developed a hair-trigger waking reflex, which initially led to a couple bouts of sleep paralysis. but now one off sound and I'm up with the lights quickly on, the tv, and sliding door open. whatever they are, they seem to like to operate on the DL. and since I live in a four unit condo, simple noises like that wake people up, which makes their agenda a bit more difficult.

I suppose I could give that a go!
It is kind of the mindset I tried to go into with...I am big girl, got over my fear of the dark decades ago, research it till it doesn't bother you anymore, but it hasn't played out that way!

Sorry about my comment then! I guess I can't help you sleep. Do research until you pass out from exhaustion is what I should tell you then.

Ignoreing the issues does not mean they do not exist.

If I don't pay attention to any UFO/Alien related stuff, or it is at a very minimum level...say an episode of ancient aliens etc. than I sleep fine.
However, trying to spend any significant thought or time...or say reading a book about it (ie:communion, alien agenda) Causes me several sleepless nights.
I feel ridiculous about this..I honestly do!

the gator relies on it's primitive medulla oblongata to get through life, and the aliens can't seem to paralyze them so easy cause of this.

gator is my trusty knife I got from the army, has a deep, serated, blade well. a good slash and nerves will be destroyed.

I have been an abductee for a quarter century now. And the one thing I have learned is don't let fear rule your life. Don't let aliens make you afraid to sleep, eat, go outside, take a shower. Actually 99% of abduction books focus on fear and victims, so I don't usually read them. Don't get me wrong, I've been through extremely bizarre and almost mind bending experiences from ets but all those years of fearing them one day I just woke up and decided to learn from them instead of worrying when the next abduction will be, tonight, in an hour, next week and what I might go through next with them. This is how I can get to sleep every night, really not such a bad way to think.

No seriously, how?
I try to research and study alien and UFO theories but I can't sleep at night if I do it wholeheartedly.
I have had multiple experiences and want to be able to delve deeper, but my sleep is valuable.
I have only gotten halfway through Jim Marrs alien agenda and forget communion..it sits on my bookshelf.
What do you do, to put it out of your mind before the lights go down?


If I'm having trouble I just lay and meditate until I drop off. Keep trying to lose the fear and let it go when it's time for bed if it's bothering you that much. And remember that you don't actually know anything, the only thing bothering you is your own thoughts.

Have had experiences too, but you have to remember that you don't 'know' what those experiences were, so again, it's probably just your thoughts and fears that are causing problems. With time you can learn to let them go more often than not, to the point that you can focus on researching more than worrying about losing sleep.
