I guess this goes here. So here goes.
When I was about 4 or 5, I woke up from a nightmare. I looked to the side of my bed where a trash can usually was and I saw a goblin or gremlin type
creature. I saw it clear and vivid as day. About three feet tall, greenish grey skin, bald head, tall pointed ears, big black oval shaped eyes, long
pointed nose, an evil looking grin from ear to ear with sharp yellow teeth, long arms with big hands and long bony fingers, sharp pointed nails. Real
thin body, his legs were thin and bony, big feet with long bony toes and pointed nails. He was looking at me with a grin on his face and it scared the
holy hell out of me.
I know I was awake because I hid under my blanket and pressed myself against the wall for about five minutes. When I came out from under the blanket,
he was gone.
Around the same time period, I awoke from a nightmare again and in the doorway to my bedroom, I saw one of those Chinese dragons. I remember being so
scared, I ran right through it to go to my parent's room.
Fast forward a few years. I must have been about 13. My bedroom windows looked out onto the airport, which was about 5 miles away. One night, I was
lying awake and I saw two pairs of lights. Each pair was a red light and a green light. I got out of bed and walked to the window. It must have been 1
am. Both pairs of lights were over the airport, so at first, you'd figure them to be planes. But they started zig zagging separately from each other,
sometimes crossing each others paths. They moved faster than any aircraft I had and have ever seen. They did this for about five minutes, and then
sped off in separate directions and were gone before I had a chance to blink.
About the same time I started having recurring dreams and feelings. When I would lay in bed and close my eyes, it would feel as if I was falling. I
could see everything in my room, and it all seemed to get bigger. It felt as if my head was expanding and encompassing my entire room. Other times,
usually right before I would get sick, I would have the same dream where everything would be made of purple cubes. I would usually be at a purple
block castle with some sort of purple block person there. There was never any words. It was odd. I just remember exploring the block castle and waking
up with a cold.
I had begun taking karate around this time also, and I experienced a completely serene moment during meditation once. I was in the back row of class,
and we usually meditated for about 5 minutes or so. I closed my eyes but could still see the class in front of me. I realized I could see outside of
the main room into the second training room, which was empty. Then I realized I could see outside the building all of the cars driving past. I could
hear them also. I kept going to the park which was about half a mile away. I could see a few people walking down the street. I could hear their
footsteps. I saw children playing in the park. I could hear the swings going back and forth and the kids laughing and screaming. It was odd, because I
could still see the karate class. I watched the teacher walk right behind me with the wooden staff he used to break the meditation, and I watched him
slam it onto the wooden floor. I opened my eyes and was at peace.
Somewhere along the line, I lost all that stuff. I didn't have any other experiences. Until I lived in Italy for three years.
I had an apartment in a town I later found out to be one of the towns the Templars and Order of Malta used for whatever reason. san Quirino Templari.
When I moved in, my neighbors told me they had a ghost which ultimately resulted in an exorcism. They had been there a couple years before me, so I
couldn't verify. They did however tell me my apartment was haunted.
Apparently the family of three who had lived here told them about their daughter speaking to a "bad man" in my spare bedroom.
My experience there was not with a bad man per se, but it was odd. When I first moved in, my tv shut itself off a few times. I didn't think that was
too weird. Almost a year later, I started hearing the wardrobe in my bedroom creak as if it were being opened, every morning (I worked nights) around
7-7:30am. It would continue on until I told the spirit to stop. About a year later, the wardrobe deal was still happening, I was outside sitting in a
chair on the lawn at about 2pm, enjoying the sun and a beer, and the sprinklers turned on just long enough for me to get off the grass. Two days
later, I was having a beer outside with one of my buddies at the same time of day and I told him about the sprinklers. He didn't believe me until the
sprinklers turned on just long enough for us to get off the grass. About a week later, I was watching The Haunting (1963 Horror movie), and as soon as
it was finished, I went to the bathroom. I came back out the the living room and turned off the hall light, and sat down. A few minutes later, the
hall light turned on. I even heard an audible click from the switch. Then I began hearing the "thud" noise from the movie outside of the apartment
(it sounded as if it were coming from miles away). I moved back to the states soon after that.
I haven't experienced anything else. I did have a history teacher who liked testing my intuition by making me guess numbers or words. I did pretty
well, but I haven't been able to replicate it since. I'm wondering if this might have anything to do with anything, I don't know.
I really don't know what to make of all this. I'm just kind of throwing this out there to see what anyone has to say. I'm sure there will be some
who laugh or whatever, but I know what I've seen. Anyhow, I hope it's an interesting read, at the very least.
