To Sleep Perhaps to Dream

Posted on September 18, 2009

I was just reading, “A sea of voices in the night” by Ant 1111. You know, that story brings back a memory of something that happened when I was around 16 years old.

We were house sitting for a friend of my dads. They had been a family friend all my life and seemed like family. His friends mom had passed away not long prior to this and I don’t know where he was at but anyhow, I’d spent the night there several times before.

I’d just finished watching the tonight show with Johnny Carson and had laid down. I’d only shut my eyes for a minute or two (the window was open beside the bed I was in and the back door was around the corner from the head of the bed), I heard voices like maybe four or five people were coming from the barn to the house.Then I heard footsteps and the back door open. Now I know no one else but us should have been around there and these voices sounded like it was the most natural thing in the world to be coming in the house at that time of night. I was scared! All I could think was, “you moron! why did you leave the back door open?”

I found I could not move or open my eyes, I knew I was scared but even at the time I thought surely I wasn’t scared to the point of paralysis. The word aliens came to mind, but aliens who spoke perfect English? It didn’t make sense. I heard the group walk up to the side of my bed and stand over me talking in hushed tones like they didn’t want to wake up anyone else. I could tell they were right over me looking down at me. I went through the, “I have to be dreaming,” reasoning because I thought for sure I was on the verge of panic if something sensible didn’t come to mind. But I knew I couldn’t have fallen asleep in the approx. 60 seconds or less I had laid down when I started hearing them coming from the direction of the barn.

I understood everything that they were saying and it had something to do with things that would happen to me in the future. I found this even more disturbing. Were they angels, demons, ghost, aliens? How did they know me so intently and what was the purpose of this?

The next thing I knew I woke up and it was about 1 am or so and I was laying in the living room. No pillow or blanket just sprawled out on the living room floor with the lights and TV off so I knew I didn’t fall asleep watching TV.

I asked the next morning if someone got up and turned everything off. No one had. I’ve never sleep walked, and I wasn’t overly tired or distraught about anything. Also, I had been watching TV kicked back in the lazy boy and couldn’t just roll out of that. Nor could I recall what they had talked about when I awoke, I just knew it had concerned me and my future. I found it very disturbing for a while and I can’t believe I forgot about it until reading that story.

    Hmmmm… aliens could move you quickly and without your realizing it (i have read about this ability) but the way they were talking and acting was more spirit or ghost like…is this the ONLY time anyhting like this has happened to you in this location? Odd.. very disturbing… maybe you would consider asking the family is they have had any experiences similar. Maybe “they” mistook you for the person that usually sleeps in that bedroom… be careful…

    No one slept in that room normally. The only one of the immediat family who lived in that house is now desceased. And no that’s the only thing I experienced there. The house had now been torn down, the area has changed quite a bit, newer houses going up around the area but not on the exact spot.

    Hmmm..very intriguing experience. While Ive had what seem like very lucid dreams, Ive never had anything close to what you exp’d. My experiences often leave me exhausted or perplexed..no memory of what Ive exp’d, but a strong residual sense of heavy duty activity, like Ive just pulled a 12-18 shift of work. I usually pray and ask His interpretation, confirmation (if I wake with a vague sense of what it was all about) or cleansing (some forces like to try n seduce me into knowing some things that shld just remain a mystery)… I will ask Him to reveal it to you ‘if’ its meant for you to know. ps: I enjoy your posts and writing, are you a writer?
