Afternoon All... something that has been on my mind for a while now.... in fact, since I was roughly 10 years old... (I'm now 35).
For many years when I was a child I would have the same experience... and it has recently come back, so I thought I would see if anyone else has
experienced the same...
I noticed that every night, when I was trying to get to sleep, (I have always been a light sleeper, and find it very hard to relax enough to sleep
quickly, it is always a conscious choice on my part)... just as I was on the cusp of sleep and could feel myself drifting, (at that point where your
thoughts seem to liquefy and go off on their own subconscious flight of fancy), I saw an intense flash of light, that was clearly seen through my
closed eyelids, and seemed to fill the room. The flash was accompanied by a "click" sound.... It was so intense for the first few times that it
happened, that I would immediately open my eyes and try to figure out what the hell was going on.... only to be met with a kind of "pulsating
reality" for the 2 seconds or so immediately after opening my eyes. Very difficult to explain that bit... but the darkened room around me seemed to
be vibrant and alive..... then all would return to normal... and I would be left with a strange feeling of having been somewhere else for a while....
I learnt to ignore it as I got older.... It became a part of my life I suppose...
Now, this went on for many years, every night, until I got to about 19 or so... and then stopped abruptly.... however, recently, the light flashes
have become prevalent again.... not every night.. but most nights.
My initial reaction as a 10 year old child was one of confusion... I was going through a period of intense philosophical discovery at that age... and
attributed it to an overactive mind before sleep.. but I could never get that feeling of having been somewhere else out of my mind.
As I got older I came to a different conclusion, (bear with me here)... however mad it may seem to me now, that I was being abducted by aliens, and
that the flash was merely them returning me to my original position after doing whatever they wished to do to me.... which was a little scary, even as
I have since dismissed this hypothesis, as there is simply no other evidence for it.... however, I still wonder what these flashes are, and if any
others have had them?
Does anyone else relate to this phenomena in any way?
