I will start this by saying that I am a very average 32 year old white male. I have been a bartender for 10 years, have a family and am very normal.
In my entire adult life I have never witnessed a UFO, never seen a ghost nor experienced anything of the paranormal variety.
I do believe in UFOs and alien life and also in the supernatural although I think these things have more to do with inter dimensions than with
spirituality per say. That's a whole nother post though.
That being said, for the first time I wanted to share some of the experiences I can remember from a very, very scary time for my family and I when I
was 12 years old. This is the first time I have spoke of it to anyone, even my mother who was witness to it. If you ask why share now with ATS and
with strangers then I would answer it is very awkward and uncomfortable to talk with my mom about it, she doesn't like to remember things like this
and it would upset her.
I have been around this board for some time now and know that a good percentage of the people here are open minded and may have some ideas as to what
When I was 12, my mother had just married my step father, we were poor in the most extreme sense of the word, we bounced around from my Grandfathers
house to my Grandmothers house and everywhere in between until my step father finally got a job where we could buy a manufactured home in Florida.
Moving into a new place was exciting and to this point I was sleeping like a baby and to this day could not remember one dream or much else to save my
life. The house itself was brand new, there was nothing unusual or "haunting" about it. Nobody had lived there before and nothing had happened there
or on the land of any importance.
About a week after moving in, I started having strange dreams. Strange in that they were the same two dreams and I would have them night after night.
This was the first time in my life that I every had the same dreams over and over and I know this because I would have remembered anything like this
before this point.
Dream 1 - This is the scary dream. I would seem to dwell on something dreadful without any known fear, there was blackness and I could not see
anything and the minutes would seem to turn into hours as I could feel my spirit and soul sink as I was left in the dark to ponder something so
horrible that no human being on earth could even imagine or cope with.
I remember being so horrified I could not even move, it felt as if something had happened, something so bad that it made me weep and sob, something
that could not be undone, something absolute and concrete.
The first few times I had this dream I would awake at some point sweating, flushed and terribly afraid. This progressed in the coming weeks to awaking
screaming, shaking, violently throwing things in my room and completely and totally coming unglued upon waking.
About 2 months into this, I began sleep walking, I would sweat so much and become so hot that while sleeping I would sometimes shed my clothes, I
would find my way to different parts of the house and on more than one occasion my mother would find me completely naked sobbing uncotrollably while
At times I would find myself waking in my mothers bedroom, usually because she was screaming at me to wake up. When I would come to my senses at least
enough to not be asleep anymore I would just be standing over her bed, completely soaked by tears and saying things I had absolutely no idea what they
meant. I could here her saying... "LOOK AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR" she would scream that too me as loud as she could to try and wake me up, she said
the only thing that worked when I was like that was to look at myself in the mirror.
I tried so hard to remember the details of this dream, i've focused on it because I know there is something to them. Something unique. I remember the
dark, the fear.
