The horse in your avatar so reminds me of my Nimue. She's 12 now, and we adopted her from the Bureau of Land Management. We've had her for almost two years. Wonderful animals... BTW, Nimue is a Mustang...edit on 10/6/2011 by visualmiscreant because: (no reason given)

The thing which is most striking to me is that this one night you decided to sleep the other way around, you never did that on another occasion?

Many of us have had similar experiences. I too refrain from relating them on ATS because of the fireworks. I will be open with this though; This incident occurred when I was about 16 years old in my family's old home in Miami Florida; probably 1976 or 1977. One night as I was headed to bed, I was walking down the hall to my room which was the first on the left, and I saw a shadow coming at me from the other end of the hall. This shadow walked right through me and my entire body felt like it had been immersed in ice. I, of course was instantly stricken with fear, and so we decided to recreate the situation. We could not reproduce the shadow at the other end of the hall. Anyway, after calming down enough to go to bed, I still couldn't sleep because I truly was troubled. All at once, a glowing white female figure stood beside my bed, and I immediately recognized her as my sister Martha, who had died in 1961 three days after her birth. This "angel" was the approximate age my sister would have been had she lived. I was only one year old when she died and had no natural way to recognize her as my sister. She looked compassionately into my eyes, and said "Everything is fine, brother. Go to sleep." She disappeared as quickly as she had first appeared, and I closed my eyes and went to sleep untroubled.

Interesting post, OP! I've had a strange experience recently, too (in my signature), but it doesn't seem to really apply to yours.
My mother has told me stories that, when I was young, I would call out to her in the night. When she came in, I would ask her to tell the old man to stop talking to me so I could sleep.
Maybe it's something that younger minds are more receptive to? And then when we grow up and learn how the world "should" work, we essentially close ourselves off to those types of encounters?

I've been tossing the idea around of posting this, because you folks on this forum seem pretty nice and I was hoping to get some insight. Let me start out by saying that I don't think I am an overly "sensitive" person, but I do have my ear to the ground, as it were.
As for my experience:
When I was in Middle School (I am now in my 20's) I had a rather small-ish bedroom. It was night, and I had already been asleep. The odd thing about that night was for some reason I decided to sleep with my head at the opposite end of the bed I normally did. (I had no head board). This room of mine had a window that looked out on the front yard, and the street as well (I lived in a rural area). At night, even with mostly closed blinds, when a car would go down the street, the lights would move across the far wall and disappear after the car had gone by. Keep this little point in mind. Now, back to my story: I'm not sure what time this happened, but I woke up. Not sure why, or how, or what, if something made me wake up. But wake up I did and when I did there wassomething in my room. If I had to guess, I would say it was no taller than me (5'4''), and if it was, only by a little bit. It's "form" was insubstantial, and i'd say it had a soft "glow" of sorts. (enough so that i could see it in my (mostly) dark room. The shape was also humanoid, I believe. There was light on the far wall from my window and the was the first thing I checked/looked for. I was or had just awoken, but I had the mind to look and see if I was "just seeing things".
Now, here's the kicker. i was tired, and I wanted to go back to sleep, but I was some what scared. I figured, this can't be right... and so I closed my eyes, hoping it would "go away" or just "not be there" when I opened again. Well, you guessed it (or maybe you didn't, I don't know... ) it did not go away. I stared at this...this...form, this thing until sleep reclaimed me. I want to add that I was only "scared" in the sense that I didn't know what I was looking at, what I was experiencing...not because I could sense that it had any mal-intent. (Maybe I wouldn't notice if it did?)
Well there you go! Hope this is in the right forum...? Maybe Gray Area would have been better, I'm not sure. Anyhow, I look forward to your input.
