Let me first start by saying that though I like to join in a topic here and there, my main preference is to lurk on ATS. I enjoy reading about the
various subjects and in the year that I have been a member, have learned a great deal. I never thought that I would have anything personal to add on
here but within the last hour I had an experience that has me feeling a bit.....squirrely.
One of the things I have always been fascinated by is the transmundane. The spirit world, magic, folklore, cryptozoology...you name it. I began
reading about the stuff when I was a little kid and held onto the fascination, which eventually led me down the pagan path. I practiced for well over
a decade before embarking on other spiritual quests. Once I had a family those things were still within my heart but I could no longer devote the time
I used to. Over the years I always tried to keep in touch my spirituality and through a couple of techniques and meditations, have managed to hone my
own energy into formidable force. I never got too deep into the New Age thing but did agree with a few concepts that have since been integrated into
As I type this I am sitting at my desk listening to classical on NPR. I was sitting at this same desk when an object....the best way I can describe it
is a coil wrapped oddly around itself..began to float by my face very slowly, coming in from the left. It passed by the computer so the shape
definitely stood out against the white backlighting. Initially I thought it was a hair...it was about that thick...and maybe it was on an air current.
Then I thought of a spider web hanging from the ceiling, so I waved hand above it but it continued its course. By this time I am still seated and just
watching it. When it began to ascend toward the ceiling I started to feel odd about this object. I watched it go from floating about a foot above my
desk to about an inch away from my ceiling...and I have high ceilings. It was hard to track but I managed it and watched as it slowly descended, not
as low as before but still coming within 3 feet of the top of my desk and then it BEGAN TO GO BACK IN THE DIRECTION IT CAME IN!!!
Two things came
to my mind...
So I stood up...and went for it... couldnt get it. It went higher and it was at that moment that my husband opened the door. I was standing there wide
eyed and gaping at the ceiling, trying keep the object in my sights.
"Do you see that??"
I was standing beside the bed and it began its descent once again...but this was no longer a coil. This was a perfectly round, perfectly black...dot.
Far larger than dust...but far smaller than anything bigger than the head of a dressmaker pin. The ones with the little beads. This sounds insane to
me even as I type this but as I watched that tiny circle fall I could hear my husband in the background....
"Enjoy your acid trip"
"Shut up! Im not insane...I GOT IT!!!"...I had waited for the right moment and closed my hand around it. Open my hand....NADA!!
This was an ordinary afternoon of me working at my computer, not under the influence of any hallucinogens and I have not had a drink in a loooooong
time. One of the things I have been working on gradually is opening my third eye. I began the process as a teen and in recent years have begun to have
some pretty interesting experiences....but this is a new one. This thing changed directions as well as shape on me. I have spent so much time looking
for obvious signs and then something incredibly small comes along and throws me for a major loop. I dont know why I am putting this out there...but I
felt like this was the only place I would not feel crazy....among my fellow tinfoil hats.
