I am not here to call anyone out. In a strange way, I understand why so many people feel the need to express doubt when they read stories from The
Gray Area. You're scared. You are legitimately scared of some of the things you are reading and you have to rationalize it away. I understand that. I
am not here to judge you. I know how you feel. It has to be faked. It has to be drugs. It has to be reading too much ATS or watching Sci-Fi because it
just can't be true. Because if it's true, you're not safe anymore. Because if it's true, it can happen to you. And that's too frightening a thought.
So, you read these experiences that people are having an you start rationalizing and Google searching to debunk or explain them. You have to do this
for your sanity. You can't go to bed until you have successfully convinced yourself that it's all bull.
I know. I know because I have done it too sometimes. But you know what ? It doesn't always work. At the end of the day, you know it happened. And
sometimes , there's no use in even trying to deny some of it. For example, I was recently and genuinely freaked out about an experience that a woman
posted here that she was having in her house and I believed her. It hit too close to home. I believed her and I didn't even respond to her because I
thought that it might trigger that same experience to start happening to me and so I ignored it. Obviously, I got over that initial fear. It doesn't
bother me now, but whew. It knocked me back. I had to to get a drink that night. Yes, it was that bad.
But now that I am over that initial fear, I wish I could have said something to her to encourage her. I went back and read and saw that several people
were giving her advice and many of them gave her the same advise as I would have. But, by then she had stopped responding to the posts and there came
that fear again. Did it get her ? But here's my point and going back to the title of my thread and the reason for posting it, not everything is ATS
or Sci-Fi induced. Her experience as well as my own experiences are not found on ATS. They are not found on any Sci-Fi channel. I can't even think of
a paranormal movie or show that explains some of the stuff I have endured in my life. I'm not on ATS often, but I have had lots of vivid dreams. They
are real. I didn't watch any show that triggered my dreams before going to bed. There is no explanation for them. I am here because of my dreams. My
dreams to not come from me being here.
I have had vivid dreams where I literally flew to Boston and I'm not talking about American Airlines with a layover in Chicago. I fricken flew by
butt to Boston. I've never been there in my life, but I was there. I was aware of the time. I saw the patches of snow. I felt the breeze. I saw the
train. I descended from the top of the train into a room with about six to eight train conductors and when they saw me they freaked out and all looked
at the main guy. He looked at me and nodded in approval and they were fine with me being there. Anyone care to explain what the blank THAT was about ?
I had a similar dream about New York City. I was there. Never been in real life, but I was there. I have been to islands where all the buildings were
white that remind me of Malta before I ever heard of Malta or went there. What movie is THAT from ?
I dreamed once that I was living what can only be described as a futuristic but downgraded America. All citizens lived in run down apartments. And
every so often, we would get a shipment of supplies based on size of household. I was filling my cabinets with the supplies I got when there was a
huge commotion and excitement. I ran outside to the roof with everyone else. I had my camera. It felt like 9pm. All of a sudden you could see the
lights in the sky. Beautiful lights and maneuvering craft. They were clearly UFO's flying all around and we were all filming it with our various
cameras. Next thing I know, I get the warning. It's something inside that warns me every time I have a UFO dream, the same thing happens. I knew that
after all the pretty lights came, something bad happened. So I started running .
The scene changes and I'm standing at the entrance of a Military base. Soldiers were encouraging people to come inside, but many would not because
they kept screaming about FEMA and NWO. They ran back down the street towards the UFO's. I, and maybe a handful of others, went into the bunker with
the Military. Then, they shut us inside. All of a sudden there was a giant explosion and everyone who was not inside died. Then I find out that the
Military made a deal with the aliens that they could blow up the people who did not come inside. but then, we find out that the aliens betrayed the
Military because they tried to get inside where I was. This lasted all night long and by morning we had surrendered to the aliens who did not look
like aliens, They were dressed as Nazis, but they were not human.
Next thing I see are the people inside being rounded up and marched out somewhere. I was determined not to go. I knew I would escape. The people had
different stickers on their faces and they were separated and sorted based on the stickers on their faces. I had a gray sickle shaped sticker that was
placed on me that I took off. I was hiding behind steel beams and evading capture from the large headed Nazi aliens. I was already planning in my head
how to live off the land in the wilderness once I get there, like I do all the time every time I have one of these dreams. That's all I remember. I
have had several of these types of dreams. They always include UFO's and MILITARY together. Always.
I don't watch a lot of movies and I don't believe in UFO's so why am I having these dreams ?
What about my most recent very vivid and lucid dream that I had to write down because it freaked me out so bad. I was walking down a sidewalk and I
saw a funeral procession for a pope. He was dressed in red and priests were carrying him. The sidewalk I was on started to curl and swirl and get
crowded with lots of people excited to see the dead pope. Then, the scene changed where I had apparently just moved into a new apartment and when I
went to light a candle, instead of a flame, I saw this smoke/silver like hexagon floating. I tried to blow it out, but could not. I prayed and took
all the candles and threw them outside on the ground. Then, a friend came over and gave me a housewarming gift. It was a carved wooden shelf or small
spice rack with green herb like plants on it. The apartment was not as nice as my real apartment. There was a hole in the wall. The curtains were kind
of shabby and it was raining outside. There was a cabinet on the ceiling and when I opened it, there was a clock in there just ticking. The next thing
that happened, I was shopping with a friend and there was a sale on purses and sunglasses 2 for $25.00 . Then, I saw two black puppies. I kept telling
myself to remember everything because everything means something. Then I woke up and wrote everything down. It still does not make sense to me.
Now what was all that about ? None of this has anything to o with ATS, Sci-FI or any movie and yet these are all vivid dreams. Sorry for rambling. I
guess I just want people to know that what some of us are experiencing here is REAL. And we are here because we want to know what's going on.
