When you begin to research unknown phenomena, you soon discover two things:
- Many of those who call themselves UFO researchers approach the subject in an entirely, sensational and emotional way that tends to discredit their conclusions among the general populace, but endears them to their devoted followers, who like or even seek, wild, unproven alien abduction stories and theories.
- The second thing you find out is that you cannot sort many cases into one category. What appears at first to be an event involving a UFO and/or an extraterrestrial being can easily morph into a paranormal apparition, an explainable natural occurrence – or a common hoax upon closer examination.
Visit from Unknown Entities?
I haven’t had a lot of paranormal or extraterrestrial entity experiences in my life, but I have had a few memorable incidents. I am not a so-called experiencer and I tend to think my experiences could be due to sleepwalking, sleep paralysis -- or perhaps even a ghost -- or hallucination. The most recent one occurred about two years ago on a cold winter’s night.
I was awoken in the middle of the night by scratching at my window, which is on the second floor of my house. The next thing I saw startled me to the point that even though I was half asleep, my adrenaline flowed through my veins as though I had just been stabbed with a knife. Trying to pull themselves through my window were several small figures that appeared to me at first to be slender teenagers. But upon closer examination, I could see that they were pale humanoid creatures with tight-fitting, yellow skull caps – and certainly not human beings at all.
I couldn’t believe what my eyes saw. At first, I wondered how these, what appeared to be at first glance, young burglars managed to get into my second-story window. Did they have a ladder? But as I began to see how strange they appeared and realized they weren’t human, I jumped out of bed and ran toward the window to push them back out of the window by beating them with my fists, which were clenched.
They repulsed me that much!
Fighting for My Life
I ran over to where they were and began swinging at them wildly; only to see them look up at me with what appeared to be surprised. Within seconds they vanished into thin air as my fist banged up against a closed window. I was shouting at the top of my lungs, which startled and woke up my wife, who had fallen asleep downstairs while watching TV. She began screaming, asking me what was the matter -- and if I was okay.
I stood there for a second stunned, while my heart pounded and my senses became super alert. What had just happened, I asked myself. I gathered myself and met my wife in the hallway as she was coming up the stairs.
Another artist's concept of what I described
“I’ve never heard you scream like that,” she said.
And, truthfully, I never had before. It came involuntarily from the depths of my primal instincts that told me I was about to engage in a fight for my life. As I tried to explain to her what I saw, I couldn’t shake how real it all was. Their presence still permeated the air. I stayed up until dawn that evening, and then finally crashed into my bed for about 3 hours of sleep.
Carefully Considered Possible Causes
When I awoke, I was still pretty shaken up and began to wonder if these stick men creatures would pay me a return visit that night. I racked my brain trying to figure out what they could have been.
Maybe I was hallucinating?
If I was, it would have been the first time in my life. Perhaps I was just dreaming and walking in my sleep. I have never sleepwalked that I knew of, and when I tried to recreate my jumping out of my high bed with one motion as I did the night before, I found it difficult and a move that required me to be fully awake. So, the terror they created in me, made me stronger and more limber than usual.
Finally, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the vibes I got from these creatures were threatening, sneaky, and not benign in any way. Therefore, I concluded that they were not the friendly extraterrestrials that have become the staple and alien stereotypes so prevalent in the UFO community. They could have been a bad dream, or maybe ghosts? I suspect I will never know.
Old Radio from Goodwill
I then began to think if there had been any changes in our house recently that might bring such creatures into my bedroom window.
It was then that I remembered my daughter had bought me an old tube, table radio she found at our local Goodwill store just the day before. I then began to consider if these things were somehow attached to the old radio. I immediately went downstairs and located the tabletop radio, which I found had been placed on our kitchen counter that was directly below my bedroom. I told my wife about this strange coincidence, who immediately called my daughter.
My daughter, who is very much into UFOs and the paranormal, came in a few hours took the radio away, and disposed of it in a shopping center dumpster. It was a precautionary measure I agreed with. After all, what harm could it do?
Since then, I have not had a visit from these uninvited creatures, but who can say what these dark entities were, where they came from – or if someday they may decide to return?Try Audible Plus
