As a small child (maybe 5 or so) I had an encounter that would change my life. I had a bedroom that was pitch-black, just as I liked it.� One night I found myself laying in bed in the middle of the night, as if I had just woken up. I was on my back and I had an urge to look over to my left, where my entire room was, including the windows on the far wall. (My bed was against the wall on the right.)
So I looked over and in the darkness, I saw two glowing eyes that were watching me. They were orange or golden. There were no pupils or details that I saw; they were just two glowing golden shapes of eyes. They were large, and much bigger than human eyes, which are tiny in comparison. I could only see the eyes and nothing else in my dark room.� At the moment I was frightened, so I turned over to the right, facing the wall, and I stayed there for a few minutes, frozen in fear. Nothing happened at all, no noises or anything. When I finally looked back over, there was nothing there, just the dark room.
After all these years, it strikes me that my reaction was not very strong actually. I was a small kid, and I didn�t scream or run out of my room. I only turned away and froze that way for a few minutes. I didn�t even leave my room after it was all over. My reaction seemed quite muted, as if I wasn�t very frightened after all� just a little.
I have remembered these eyes ever since then.� I can still remember them vividly in my mind. When I was young I figured I had seen a ghost, but over the years I�ve wondered about a connection to different kinds of beings / life forms, maybe �aliens.� However I also always felt there were many spirits in that old farmhouse that I grew up in.
One other experience is worth mentioning, although the eyes are the major paranormal experience of my childhood.� This second experience seems like a glimpse of a memory, perhaps. As a kid, I never took it seriously, and I considered it a dream. If this is a real memory, however, then it is only a tiny glimpse, because I can�t remember what happened the next moment.� I was in bed.� I saw a hand moving up over the side of my bed, a huge hand, similar to the classic description of the hands of the grey aliens.� It had only four fingers, not five like us. (A thumb and three fingers.) All of its fingers were very, very long and skinny, maybe 12 inches or 18 inches, wrinkled and grey. Like I said, as a child I considered this a dream, but now I�m not so sure.� I can only remember the image of that hand rising over my bedside; nothing else.
Mostly I am curious about these eyes which actually seemed beautiful, if not loving. I would like to hear any suggestions for who would have such eyes, and why. And don�t tell me negative stuff, because I know it was not an evil presence, no way. It really seemed quite positive.
