Hey everyone. I just thought I should introduce myself.

I needed to find a place where I can talk about my experiences and talk to like minded people. I know I shouldn't be using a forum as means of therapy but I've had experiences where I can't really talk to anyone about. I tell my boyfriend about it whenever it happens or happened but he's very skeptical and rarely ever believes me and it can get pretty frustrating that I have no one on my side. So I hope the folks here in ATS lend a friendly ear, or should I say, eyes.
Sometimes you just need to know that there are other people like you, you know?

I'm an artist who lives in a boring part of NYC with pets. I'm a spiritual and open minded person and enjoy topics of the paranormal. I guess I should talk a little about an experience i've have of a UFO for this intro, to get a feel of what i've experienced. (I've had other paranormal things happen to me, like ghosts, but that's for another time.)

People might not believe me but I know what I saw. I must of been 15 or so (it's a long time ago) when I first saw a UFO. It was a shining diamond shaped one and around it were other little lights that appeared. They would flicker in and out and would move, like as if it was putting on a show. The "show" felt like it transpired for a very long time. I was just staring out my window. I wanted to wake up my friend who was sleeping over at the time and my mother but I didn't even move. I was in a kind of awed trance. It was so strange though, it seemed like the way they were all organized in the sky, aligned right above the apartment building across from mine, even down to the way the building had an intersecting point.
It was so frightening and amazing and beautiful and completely mesmerizing all at once, that my mind was blank and was just trying to register what was going on. I didn't know what it was, I had no name for it until I was watching T.V years later, it was a documentary about UFOs. But by that time I had forgotten about it because I was young and thought nothing of it. On the show a farmer was talking about seeing a diamond shaped light in the sky and you know that moment when something clicks in your head and memories start to flood back in like a tidal wave? It was exactly like that. I was so excited and scared. What the farmer explained, is what a saw. From then on, I knew there were things more to this world. To say the least, I became obsessed with UFOs and aliens.
Its engraved in my brain what happened that night and I will never forget what I saw. Quite frankly I don't care if people don't believe me but I know what I saw and that it wasn't a dream or my imagination.

That wasn't the last time I saw UFOs though. But anyways, thanks for listening and I hope this is a place where people can support each other. Looking forward to more of ATS!

Hey, you seem really level-headed! Welcome! It is nice to be around other open-minded people in a place where you can actually discuss issues away from the influence of mainstream media and pop culture.

I remember the first time I saw a UFO, I was probably 8 or 9, and it turned out to be a flying triangle, I did research on it later on and found out that it was actually a secret air force prototype. I've had other experiences with conspiracies and the paranormal, enough that I know things aren't as they seem to the average individual.

sioux, welcome to ATS enjoy your stay. It is a place to learn from once you can see the ignornce post and move past them. As far as sharing too much of your personal life on any social media I dont think its a wise move but if you find other members here you can relate to use the u2u function to keep it as private as you can. I say this to help you avoid any exploitation due to some members being a little different then others.

NAMASTE*******

Thanks for that!

Well I just wanted to talk about paranormal experiences. I am pretty wary to social media and I rarely do forums, so I won't talk about my personal life really.

Hi and welcome


I really enjoyed reading your intro and I'm looking foward to what you have to say next. I myself have had trouble finding the right person/people to talk to that understand so most of my life Ive had to keep it all in. This place is a great place to find peace with yourself and you may find that reading other people's threads helps you realise your not alone and not crazy lol.
