During the 90s I was involved with a local group that investigated the unexplained. We had a wave of UFO sightings at the time, so there was plenty of
unusual activity to keep us busy. Occasionally though, we would run into accounts of such high strangeness, it was hard to classify them. One such
event has been nagging me for years, so I thought I would see if anyone here has heard of such an experience as the following.
We had, at that time, an ongoing case with a family in a rural area nearby. Most of the neighbors in the surrounding area had also been experiencing
unusual activity over a period of months to several years. They (this family & the neighbors) had all the usual type of mysterious occurrences: ufos
of a variety of shapes and sizes, cattle mutilations, abductions, and sightings of beings both at night and during waking daylight hours. Some of
these events were the type you commonly hear of, while others were extremely unusual and unique. But this thread is about just one particular
phenomenon experienced by one individual.
I don't have a name for this phenomenon, so I will just describe it, and hopefully someone here can put a label on it. The woman who described this
experience was of middle age. She lived with her family on a Missouri farm where they raised horses.
One day, she is at home, washing dishes. Not really thinking about anything in particular, just focused on the task. She's physically worn out, but
wide awake. Suddenly, she finds herself looking through the eyes of someone else. It's as if she's inside another person's body, literally seeing
through their eyes.
She has no control over the thoughts or movements of this host person. She is just there, watching from inside. She can see that she is in the body of
a younger woman. She can see her host's shoulder length, dark hair when she leans forward. This person looks nothing like her. She can see that the
person has beautifully manicured nails. She lives in a very expensive home. She can see that the TV is on a news channel, but it's too far away to
see well and the host is not paying attention to it. The witness can only see where the host looks. The host walks out a door to a balcony that
overlooks the ocean, and just stares off at the view.
The witness WISHES the host would look in a mirror, at a calendar, walk closer to the TV...something that would give her a clue who this person is,
and where and when this is taking place. The witness sees a stack of mail, and thinks, "Pick it up and look!!" But it had no affect on the woman.
The witness is just along for the ride, with no idea how it happened. This lasted a few minutes. Then suddenly, she is back in her own body, still
standing at the kitchen sink. No one else is around at the time who saw her while this was going on. This happened again once or twice, very much the
same. Same host, different day. She was never able to gather any clues that would explain who this woman was or why she was seeing through her
She also had another similar experience, and again it happened while she was doing some everyday mindless task. She found herself in a yard somewhere,
looking up at the front of a nice home. She has no idea what form she is in, what she looks like. But she is very low to the ground. She sees a man
walk out the front door and toward her general location. He bends down to pick up the paper, looks towards her, and focuses like he's trying to see
clearly. He comes closer, bends way down and makes eye contact. He appears taken aback. Then he smiles and waves! This totally freaks her out, that he
can see her, and suddenly she finds herself back at home. She has no idea why she was so small or low to the ground that he had to bend over so far to
look eye-to-eye with her. She has no clue who the man was. She did feel that his home reminded her of the type she had seen in California.
I have so many questions. What is the connection if any, between her and the woman she inhabited at least twice? Was this woman aware of a presence?
Did she feel anything at all? What was the man seeing when he looked at her that resulted in shock, followed by a friendly wave?
What exactly do you call a phenomenon such as this?
It's not exactly remote viewing, a very controlled process. This was spontaneous and undirected.
It's not quite clairvoyance, because it was more than the transfer of info. She was there mentally, riding shotgun.
Bilocation? Not really. She is still physically standing at the kitchen sink, while her mind is elsewhere.
Out of Body experience? Not like any I have heard of.
Did she cross momentarily into a different or parallel reality?
I am completely at a loss, so I turn to you, the great minds of ATS.
