Made me think of those old "Mr. Yuck" stickers for poisons...
Anyway, you said you were young. Could it not have just been a vivid dream??
Occam's Razor and all, etc., etc.

When my daughter was 5-6 she would wake me up and tell me about the things she saw. I never told her to go back to bed. I would get up, nuke 1 cup of milk till it was warm, and we'd sip it at the kitchen table while I listened to her explain, and I'd ask her simple questions. When she was done explaining, and we finished our 1/2 cup of warm milk, we'd kiss, and hug, and I'd hold her for being so precious to me. I'd tell her I loved her, and she'd whisper the same. I'd take her back to her room, tuck her in, and tell her that "Daddy will protect you". Pow, out like a light. She's 15 now.
Oddly enough, I believed her. I believe that children are MUCH more sensitive to physic phenomena than adults are. I believe the adults filter out the ability from their children, and tell them not to believe. The schools, our peers, do the same thing. When we reach adulthood, most metaphysical concepts are lost to us.
One odd thing my daughter did, when she was learning to write, was write her name inversely. Her letters were perfect, but they looked like they were dyslexic or something. She was a lefty, and I think lefties have an edge in perceptive ability of phenomena as well.
One night, when she finished her homework, she had written her name at the top "the WRONG way". I was confused, because she had almost broke that habit. I took her homework paper to the mirror, and held it up, out of a sudden impulse, and her name was spelled PERFECTLY in the mirror image. In her mind, she was seeing and writing her name from the way it would look reflected from a mirror.
Odd, but a true story. I've taught her over the years. She's learning.

What you're describing sounds like text-book night terrors. Did you feel like you couldn't move?
