Weird little buggers aren't they? Despite all the non advice you are being subjected to, I thought I would tell you a story of something
that happened to me.
I smoked cigarettes for 35 years. I only quit when it became clear that I would die if I didn't. Some time after that I was laying on my side on the
couch late at night watching TV with my little dog curled up asleep nestled in the crook of my arm.
All at once she woke up and began to growl and back peddle against me as though to get away from something she could detect but I was oblivious too. I
thought she was dreaming and I made to comfort her, but she and I were both awake and she was definitely trying to get away from something that was
right in front of her.
It was at that point that I suddenly became aware of something that was hovering right in front of me at eye level. I couldn't describe any shape or
details just a shadow of some sort that was sort of there? The kind of thing that causes one to blink and start to try and sit up.
I didn't get the chance. In a moment the shadow bolted up and to my left to the curtains beside the couch and hung there. I became aware that it had
form and although I wasn't looking directly at it (it was over my head and slightly behind me now) I could see it with my mind like it was sort of
relaying an image of itself to me or something. It looked "bug like". As close as I could describe this it was small, about the size of a toaster,
jet black with a shiny back and "insect" legs that were gripping the curtain.
Before I had a chance to react to that, it made the weirdest "clicking noises". It seemed some form of communication was being directed at me and
at each click I could feel my whole body vibrate deep inside, click, clicky, click. You know that feeling you get when you sustain a mild electric
shock? Like that. Then there was this other sound and... it was gone. I had the distinct impression that it left.
The whole thing including my dogs reaction was but a few seconds. I didn't have time to react to it because at each stage it was fast, like
appearing in front of me, "jumping" to the curtain, making those clicks and then zip... gone. I have never experienced anything like that before or
When it started, my dog was genuinely afraid. If it had not been for her reaction I would to this day consider it my own imagination. I was not high
or asleep. My "impression" is that it had to do with my addiction to cigarettes and the only conclusion I can come to is that it was leaving me
because I had somehow finally broken that addiction cycle and there was no longer a home for it with me. It was revealing itself as it "said
goodbye"? I don't know.
I had forgotten this but your "experience" reminded me. The thing I "saw"
had similar qualities that you described in that it was small,
quick, and seemingly animated or a kind of "robot" of some sort. The "electric" part too. It was definitely a "presence" and compelling at that.
I was sure I had seen some sort of spirit or weirdly, a "machine".
