I was very touched by your story. By the way, you are a very good writer too. You have inspired me to tell my story of some "strange" incidents that happened to me. When I was about 29 years old, I came home to visit my parents,and they lived about 7 miles from a beautiful resort lake surrounded by mountains. (I grew up in that same town and visited this beautiful place every summer, camping there with my friends for days at a time) I loved climbing the mountain to the very top, for the awesome view. I had climbed up and was sitting there with a very peaceful feeling, enjoying the view when all of a sudden I had a mystical experience. There really are no words that can adequately describe my experience, but I will use the best words I can. The best way I can describe what happened is to say that I became one with the universe. I had no body anymore. This was not an out of body experience. Also, I cannot say I was in a state of bliss, because there was no concept of bliss, or peace or war or of anything, just total beingness. There was not right or wrong, good or bad. I did not realize it at that time, but only years later (I have been meditating myself for 20 years now) that that experience proved to me that there is no death. Furthermore, after careful contemplation, I have come to the conclusion, that what I experienced, in that moment, is our true reality, and everything else is a created contrivance of the mind (an illusion). That is one experience I have had, now for the other 2.
One time, me and my co-worker were driving around and we were drinking beer, but we were not drunk, just had a good buzz, and there was an airshow going on in our town. We did not want to pay to get in, so we parked on the road outside the area to watch. It was already dark almost and he (my co-worker) said, hey look up there, so I looked where he was indicating and there were some lights that looked like little round glowing lights from our vantage point and at first we thought it was one vehicle but later we discovered it was 3 of them and they were flying together in a triangle formation. Once, they disappeared before our very eyes )or at least that is what we thought, but actually, they had moved to a different sector of the sky at the blink of an eye) and that is when we knew we were seeing something that is not from this world. We had both been in the military and we knew, that no one had any vehicles that could travel at that speed. We watched them for about 30 minutes and then all of a sudden, they just took of with incredible speed and were out of sight in a split second. Now for story # 3.

I started meditating about 20 years ago and at some point, instead of sitting up, I started laying down on my bed to do my meditations. Two different times, over those 20 years, when I awoke out of the meditation state, I saw 2 different types of (I call them elemental beings) The first time this happened to me, I was still groggy from my meditation, when I opened my eyes, and there was this little being (like a fairy is the only way I can describe it) hovering above me. I was not afraid or anything, just amazed at what I saw. It stayed there maybe a few seconds, and then it was gone. And then another time, the same thing happened again, but this time when I opened my eyes, I saw what looked like a little, animated cartoon humming bird type entity and it vanished almost instantaneously after I saw it, but I know I did see it. No doubt in my mind. I hope this helps you in some way.

Yes, I have thought many times about trying to dig up some info from my brother. He left home when he was young and never really looked back. He got married and doesn't stay in touch with us very much. On a car ride home I turned on Coast to Coast AM as they were talking about shadow people and I thought this was a good lead for me to follow.

I told him, "I think I saw one of these before." And he seemed totally put off and didn't say much the rest of the car ride home. He seemed very skeptical and ready to pounce. If he did have anything to share, he had his chance.

But, I'm more interested in some of the details about when we were younger like hearing the strange noise and receiving the scabs behind our ears.


Perhaps his reaction is because he is scared to even talk about it and the way he deals with it all is to lock it away and throw away the key. Could also be why he seemed skeptical and ready to pounce, because he didn't want to think what he had perhaps encountered was possibly real and not just 'bad dreams' like he might have been convincing himself of.
I was very curious about the scabs behind your ears, and since he got those too, he has at least had one encounter. I know you have had lots of scans and things, but have you ever had that particular spot examined for anything unusual/scars etc?

I wonder....? Have you ever comanded the beings to go away or try tools or ideas that call on protection?

Welcome to ATS!


Thanks for your post. Although I have not tried any of these techniques for the "wake-ups" I used to experience, I have stumbled upon some working techniques for attacks during sleep paralysis. The "wake-ups" with the Gray Men were so short that I didn't even have much time to consider my emotional state at all. The fear came after the experiences, not during.

If we're talking sleep paralysis: Showing courage is the best tool you have. Calling on the name of Jesus, Krishna, or (whatever you like as a source of comfort) works equally well. I personally call on my faith and imagine white light shooting from my fingertips. This ends the experience almost immediately.

Fear is a powerful emotion! Very powerful!

When I was scared of storms it was because of trauma I had experienced. I recognized the why but conquering the fear itself was done when I lost my pride, called on beings whom I knew by name that had passed ( even biblical figures lol ) also overcame the fear by circling myself and or house/ chldren with the powerful white light. My brain accepted it and that is how I too overcome fear of any kind. When fear is so strong, its a stresser on the body and maybe, just maybe your body surrendered as well during that time. Like, a release....I dont know, now im rambling but I do want you to know I respect where you have been and where you are now going. :-)

I am glad people are coming forward and contributing to this thread with their own personal stories. Yours is a welcome contribution as well.

I suspect the feeling of "being" you experienced is the climax of meditation known as samadhi in the yogic vernacular. Repeated "samadhi" experiences eventually lead to brahmanirvana.

If I may. I have participated in a puja (an ancient, mystical offering to the Gods as prescribed in the Hindu Vedas that is still practiced alive and well) with some very incredible people from India. After such a tremendous free-flow of energy in the subtle body forms (think less dense than the physical body) I was seeing all kinds of strange images. I lie in bed staring at the ceiling watching what appeared to be some animals tumbling around. Very strange indeed. Many strange things happen as we go down the rabbit hole. It helps to have knowledgeable people to explain these phenomena (the guru).

I hope this helps in some way. Thanks for sharing. And I have yet to see a UFO
..maybe someday.

Keep meditating. It will pay off.

No, I have not had any special imaging scans done on my ears. I am hesitant to combine the strange sound with the scabs. For all I know we had bed bugs that night or something. However, I am sorry to say that my brother and I have had a major falling out about the time I had cancer. It is very difficult to get along with him, it pains me to say.

Everything he does is everything I don't stand for
We are really not even on speaking terms

When the time is right, we'll have "that" talk.

This is a wonderful post and I really appreciate you sharing this!
I had some things happen to me when I was a young child. I was a odd child anyway. At 3 years old I would lay out in the front yard and watch the sky and stars. Many nights I would fall asleep out there with my head on my dog's back. My mom would come pick me up and put me into bed. We lived way out in the country and at night it was pitch black, you could see the entire sky, every star...it was incredible but still not something typical of a 3 year old child.
Obviously I am holding back allot of story here...just not ready yet. But I understand some of where you are coming from. Although my experience was of pure peace. I will say I feel as though I have been watched,cared for and groomed for something more.

Very interesting read. As much as I want to believe you have experienced alien encounters, I believe otherwise. I, personally, have an autoimmune condition that has caused my immune cells to attack hypocritin cells in the center of the brain. Without hypocritin cells, our brains can no longer control our sleep/wake cycles. This is what is noted as narcolepsy.

I have narcolepsy and some of the symptoms I deal with, on nearly a daily basis, is hypnogognic and auditory hallucinations upon waking or falling asleep. I have seen many beings in my room upon waking, to getting up and running around the house trying to find the loud school bell ringing non-stop in my home. With narcolepsy, sleep can interfere anytime in your waking state, causing these hallucinations. I would recommend getting a sleep study to rule out a sleep disorder.

Many say, it was as real as real can be but I can tell you my experiences are too. I can reach out and touch these beings until they disappear. Our brain in an extraordinary organ and could produce these symptoms for those with narcolepsy and those without.

To clarify more....I was sleeping, woke up. Just laying there...when the being (male) floated into the room, face covered. When I "saw" him (my eyes were closed), he immediated "zoomed" out of the room. My impressions were that he did not intend to scare me. As far as I can tell, he never came back while I was conscious.

Since then I have had other kinds of visitors. Some sexual.

One in particular looked like a grandmother....during an OBE in my bedroom. I got all excited and asked her: "Are you an angel? An ET? A ghost?.....what are you", and she answered by saying....non-orally: "I looked like this so as not to scare you". Then I don't remember anything.

Obviously if they are real, they have to be beings that whether they have physical bodies or not, they can traveled in the inner dimensions.

Many of experiences I have had, seem to be giving me "lessons". Several were about conquering fear with the strength of love. And I am not especially a "love and light" type person. More like a "show me" one.

If they still visit you, you should really videotape when you sleep, i don't get why people say these kind of things and dont do anything to get a proof, if aliens visited me i would take videos of me sleeping every night, even if they don't appear on the video you would get to see something at least.

Okay, well growing up I had some similar experiences to you. When I turned 16 I started having sleep paralysis as well and would often encounter beings (dark shadowy figures) that felt evil to me. I remember the first time it happened I was literally so scared that I got in bed with my mom and I told her that the devil had just visited me in my sleep (she actually believed that this could happen). The first time I felt like I had "woken up" in the middle of the night (sometimes it starts as I fall asleep) and I felt the presence of something evil in the room, in the doorway there was a dark figure, then I felt as though I was being thrown around the room and then I was back to laying on the bed with the figure watching me. I became aware of my body and the fact that I could not move, I suffer from sever panic attacks and I could feel one starting to come on. It felt as though something was sitting on my chest, which is a common description in sleep paralysis, and like something was whispering in my ear but there were no discernible words. I started to try to move by wiggling fingers and toes and eventually came out of it.

well, It continued to happen and eventually I learned how to ignore the evil figures but I would often wake up incredibly drained feeling. I've done research on the topic of sleep paralysis and you arent alone in thinking it's some kind of abduction process. I for one just believe it's something thats deep down in our subconscious and when you enter sleep paralysis it's just like an intense dream because your body is asleep but your mind is active. A lot of people have learned how to control sleep paralysis, some people even claim to be able to visit other people in this state and even have sex with these "figures" they come across in it.

Erin Pavlina posts a lot of cool things on her blog about her own experiences, she's very experienced in what is called "astral projection" Here is a link to one of her many informative blog posts.>>> www.erinpavlina.com...

I would love to know where you found your avatar? I just watched a video by David Wilcock last week that explains the significance of the pine cone. For you, and any others, this has to be one of the best videos I've seen lately, as far as offering some understanding about the vibrations, frequencies, time travel, the new earth to come, what to expect later this year, etc. Fascinating information:

This life that you chose to incarnate was specifically designed to clear all doubts in your mind by knowledge gained through experience. You continue to search for the key to the mystery. If you want to find this Key it is always within meditation but the doubts of the mind must also be cleared externally in order to reach the highest stateless state of nirvana, which is in fact your true identity, If you seek this Key listen to my advice and read three books. Behold a Pale Horse, The Thiaoouba Prophecy, Power vs Force, I am That. In that order. You will emerge a fully awaked Buddha. With a view of the micro and the macrocosm. You are already a Buddha now, you just seek the the moment of truth. You are what you are seeking. I do not 'believe' your story is true, I 'know' it is. -Ariok

Thank you SO much for sharing!

Aliens have been my biggest fear as long as I can remember. I never told anyone until I hit high school, and even then when I did, everyone played it off as a joke, so I would just smile and drop it. I've never spoken to my parents about it, but you've inspired me that maybe I should... who knows what they might have to say!

I've seen moving shadows in a still room, but I've never seen a figure. The thought alone terrifies me. I am definitely the type that "feels" them in the room though. Could just be my paranoia... but some nights I feel perfectly fine and peaceful, and others I feel completely suffocated and like there are beings watching me. I've caught my cats all puffed up with their ears back staring towards the area I'm getting the feeling from as well. I hate it.

I'm a little different than you though - I can't sleep with my bedroom door shut. It HAS to be open. When it's shut, I feel like I'm trapped in the room with them. Like I would/could get up and run away from them if I wanted to anyway, but I get some comfort knowing that I could try, I suppose.

I've had one sleep paralysis experience, and I could hear noises... not sure how to explain it though. Not voices, not footsteps, definitely not my cats... just kind of a shuffling noise mixed with a deep (but quiet) sound. Odd. I couldn't see anything because I was stuck on my belly with a pillow right in front of my eyes. THAT was so scary. Can't move, can't see, but can hear? Ick.

Nighttime scares me. I hate being outside after dark especially. I'm better now that I'm older, but when I was younger, if I had to go get something from the car or etc, I would get a creepy feeling and usually run at top speed back inside. Gives me the creeps just thinking about it.


Also, the first house I moved into when I left my parents' house was definitely haunted. Maybe these things just liked to mess with me there... but ever since I left that house I've never had the same experiences as I did there. But that's another thread.

Husband makes fun of me. He doesn't believe. He does want to get into Buddhism/meditation though, so maybe it will open him up a bit.



Sorry, that was a bit choppy and jumpy, but there you have it. Thank you for sharing OP, and I believe you. How terrifying.

I appreciate your unique perspective as a narcoleptic. Here's a hint: take a look at my user name
I have been diagnosed with atypical narcolepsy by two different sleep studies.

I am aware of all the tricks and effects that narcolepsy brings with it. I'm only glad I don't suffer from cataplexy as well. What a dreadful nightmare it sounds like. Here's another hint: a lot of those sleep techs and neurologists have a lot to learn about sleep medicine and a great many other things.

It is important to keep my narcolepsy in mind when dealing with any possible encounters and hallucinations. I couldn't agree more and that's why I'm glad you brought it up. I know when my narcolepsy is playing jokes on me and when it isn't.

It took a very long for me to distinguish the differences, but it takes careful observation. I suggest keeping a dream journal or log your experiences with narcolepsy. I admit that I have not kept a dream journal. I so wish I had at this point.

Please also note that I do not claim to be an abductee and that I admit many numerous times that I do not know the full nature of my experiences. I do believe it goes well beyond narcolepsy. We narcoleptics get a special discount to see the show, that's all.

By the way, always nice to meet another narcoleptic. I hope we all get that one golden nap we all long for someday.

Have you considered that you are a Project Monarch baby and that the alien theme has been programmed into your conscious personality?

Who knows what this all is.

I think most of it's a waking-state dream or something related to sleep disorders in the brain. This would explain how some people wake up consciously (often) while others don't. We're not supposed to wake up consciously in our dreams probably for the same reason we're not supposed to move in concert with our dreams. Our body is supposed to rest silently and sleep should be disturbed minimally by the dreams the subject is having. It's a balance of the brain and body to ensure sleep.

I think only a few abductions are genuine, assuming UFOs real at all. And this is to say that they're occupied by a superior race or group of intelligent beings. They're superior in the sense that civilized nations are superior to the tribes that still exist today in the jungles. Simply, they possess technology not available to us. But it's not certain that this is so. Hysteria or secret projects might explain it.

I think it's very common for children growing up to want the lights on and to be afraid of things. I remember being terrified of the spidery egg spitters in Alien (the movie made in 1979). At night i'd cover my face so they couldn't force an egg into my throat. I'd watch the door. Same thing happened when I watched Communion. When I saw the scene where the alien peers around the corner, it became etched into my memory and I avoided ever looking at the door where our hallway was. I think children are scared by different things too. This is shaped by experience and psychology.

And like you I had some weird dreams. I wasn't the only one either. My brother and step mother had had them too. There're lots of random things I could mention and fill up several paragraphs, but at the end of the day, I have no empirical evidence to support the assertion that whatever happened was supernatural or ET in nature. In fact, most indicators are that it was confined to the brain and did not exist outside it. Only a few things can suggest otherwise and they're not conclusive.

So a long while ago I decided that this is 99% probability a sort of mental illness. I don't think it should be normal to have sleep paralysis since sleep shouldn't wake us up, so to speak. I've had a few waking state dreams where I kicked or thrust my arm out and bumped something off a table in real life. Then I woke up to realize the carnage I had wreaked. This is worrisome.

Sigh. There's always something in the back of my mind gnawing at me.

I know! and I think the same thing every time I see one of those posts too. The "wake-ups" with the Gray Men have not happened for a number of years.

And I'm not about to record myself having sleep paralysis (although it would be very interesting to see from an outside perspective.)

Thanks for the book recommendations. I have checked out "I Am That" from the library once. I started reading it but couldn't stick with it because I constantly had the feeling like "I know all this stuff already! Show me something new!"

Perhaps I will have to give it another try and add the other books to my list.

Very interesting, although I never seen a UFO fly before, I did learn on how they fly and how to make one as well as a whole barrel load of information of stuff that is very awesome.

Thanks for your interesting life-story, sir.

It is often claimed that sleep paralysis is the first stage for astral projection and OOBE. I think that sleep paralysis is kind of a buffer to make sure we're not entering the spiritual realm with fear and hurt.
