Extraterrestrial Contact or Over Active Imagination?
I’ve found myself drawn to the paranormal since I was in third grade. However, I feel my relationship to it has lasted much longer. I have a memory that has never left me from when I was three that makes me wonder if it was the root of it all.
I remember waking up suspended in the air. I do not remember being carried by any entities, or simply suspended without anything actually holding me. I was in my room, and I remember being able to see light out the window (it was late at night). I was able to jump down from whatever it was that was holding me, and I ran into my parents’ room. I laid there, looking down the hall waiting for something to walk out of my room before finally falling asleep.
This memory has stuck with me since, and has made me wonder about another incident that occurred in my life when I was 14. I had walked outside around 8 at night and noticed a light in the sky where I had never noticed one before. Two hours later I went outside to feed my dog, and I noticed the light again. However, this time, it started to move. Before I knew it, it was above me. It was just a single light, a bit larger than the stars, but clearly high up in the air. For some reason, I completely freaked out. I lost five minutes or so (Not from abduction, but from some form of panic attack). When I came to, I was sitting in the utility room of my parents’ house with mud all over the floor that I must have tracked in during my “fit”. It was after this point that I found myself unable to sleep in my bed. Instead, I would put blankets on the floor next to my bed and sleep there. This lasted for several months, but finally I was able to sleep in my bed once again. During the aftermath of this situation, my parents took me to a psychiatrist, where I was subjected to numerous tests. I also had to undergo an MRI, drug test, and some test that is done to detect epilepsy. They all came back fine.
A year or so later, I was staying at my dad’s house in the country. I was sitting on his truck’s tailgate at night, and, for some reason, felt the need to try and “contact” other “beings” with my mind. I remember closing my eyes, attempting to visualize an entity in some form of spacecraft, and “summoning” them to me. I admit it’s odd, and I’m not really sure why I chose to do this. However, after about fifteen minutes of concentration, I opened my eyes and noticed it seemed a bit brighter. I looked up to see a huge light above me, much bigger than the light I had previously seen. I once again freaked out, and another round of sleeping on the floor began.
I have since moved away from my parents’ home and live alone in an apartment in a mid-size Texas town (as opposed to the country where both my mom and dad have their homes). I have had no odd occurrences except for seeing a UFO that was seen by many, many people.
I’m not sure what was going on when I was younger, and I’m not sure what will happen when I’m older. However, I felt the need to share my story and hear the thoughts of others. Thank you for your time.
