My last blog post was about one of the most memorable paranormal experiences I've had. The experience I'm sharing now happened in the same house, but it's totally different. The house has been known to have strange things happen. You could hear the front door open and close, and sometimes hear footsteps but no one was there. Or you could hear the trashcan lid open and close in the kitchen when the room was seemingly unoccupied. This story goes into a different realm, the realm of aliens.
One night my wife and I were asleep in the basement. The bedroom had one window that was just a couple of inches off of the ground outside, typical of most basement windows. A few feet away from the window there was a small hill. It only rose 6 feet or so, but it was enough to block the road that passed by the house. For some reason, my wife and I both woke up at the same time, around 4am as I recall. We looked over at the window, which was mostly blocked out by aluminum foil (a teenager's version of a curtain) and we could see the brightest, whitest light you could ever imagine. There was a very small gap at the edges of the window, less than 1/4 inch, but it was enough to let in a little light from outside.
Like I said, this was a different light. It was white, bright, and pure. It wasn't moving at all either. It couldn't have been a car, even the new halogen lights aren't that bright and there was the hill to block even a spotlight. I would have thought it could have been from a helicopter but even if it had been able to shine through the trees, it wasn't moving and was equally bright on top and bottom. We could not come up with a reasonable source for the light, or why it woke us up at the same time. It wasn't enough to light up the room, it was just coming in around the edges. We also both had a very odd feeling. I was tempted to pull back the foil to see what was out there, but something told me that wasn't the best idea.
This was the same room where I had the ghostly encounter from my last post, but I don't think this had anything to do with anything of this planet. I'd certainly be open to listening to other possibilities but I've thought about it often over the years and never could come up with anything that made sense.
I'll be adding more stories of everything from ghosts to fairies to Bigfoot. The stories that weren't personal encounters were from family members who I trust. They also tell the stories with a high degree of believability. They just don't have the acting skills to pull these off as BS.
