- Date: Late December of 1993
- HBCC UFO Research Note: The San Francisco sighting the
person here is referring to can be found on my website, I would also like to note that this person
is a professional in their field of work.
- In late December of 1993, a couple of months after my
San Francisco sighting, I went to sleep one night and felt very strange,
something not quite right, something I had not felt before. I couldn't
explain it. I wasn't feeling ill or anything like that. I tossed and turned
and I noticed that I would close my eyes and try to sleep, but would open
them again a few seconds later, not feeling tired. After a short while,
lying on my side, I noticed a reflection of a pink-red light source on
the blinds I was facing, like the kind of reflection you would get if you
took a spot light and shone it on the blinds.
- I was puzzled since I had never seen a light before of
that color and was trying to figure out where the light was coming from.
At first I thought it must be coming from outside but the blinds were tightly
closed and the light reflection was on the inside of the blinds. I then
finally realized it was coming from inside my room, behind me, and I also
realized we didn't have any lights at all in the general area behind me
where the light must be emanating from in order to cast a reflection on
- Satisfied that I had figured out where the light was
emanating from, I did the next logical thing: I proceeded to close my eyes
and go to sleep (!). To this day I still don't know why I didn't turn around
to look where the light was and what it was, since I am an extremely curious
person by nature. Anyway, an unknown length of time later I suddenly "woke
- Actually, what happened was that I suddenly did a super-fast
sit-up from lying on my back, one moment completely unconscious and the
next instantaneously, completely awake (not groggy in the least as from
sleep) and sitting up, extremely alert (in a "flight or fight"
response) and waving my arms fiercely as if fighting an attacker. My adrenalin
was flowing and I was, to put it mildly, filled with terror. I was yelling
loudly and cursing at "someone" (I didn't have a clue who it
was) and telling them to leave me alone, liberally using expletives and
threatening them with harm if they touched me again. For a few seconds
as I sat up, I saw at the foot of my bed the disappearing forms of 3 or
4 beings, smallish, maybe 4 feet in height. I did not see any details.
- Their forms kind of seemed to shimmer and dissolve away,
leaving the empty room behind them. My wife, who is a light sleeper and
hears me when I tiptoe into the room, never woke up during my thrashing
in bed next to her, yelling and turning the lights on. Her breathing also
seemed much too quiet, not her usual sleep breathing. The next day when
I asked her if she had heard anything she said "nothing at all"
and was very surprised when I eventually had the courage to tell her what
had happened. I had never and have never been as terrified as that night.
It was that night that I learned the difference between fear and terror.
After I "got up", I kept looking around me everywhere to see
if there were any more of "them" in the room and I kept muttering
the same things I had when I had been "switched on", although
at a much lesser volume but with the same intense conviction.
- When I finally calmed down enough I looked at the clock
and noticed it was about 3:30 a.m. For the next few days, I had to have
the light on in the room, something I hadn't done since I was very young
and afraid of the dark. The terror didn't subside for a long time, probably
about 2 years.
- Also since this experience, at least for the first 3
or 4 years, I noticed that whenever I saw a program on TV that had pictures
of the little grey ETs, I would start feeling very nervous and fearful.
I don't know why. Actually, I didn't even realize this was happening until
my wife noticed that whenever such a program would be on TV and I was watching
it, that I
- would get extremely agitated and I would have the look
of fear on my face.
- She pointed this out to me and I then became aware of
my behavior. Since then I cannot go to sleep early any more. I usually
get to sleep around 2:00a.m. to 4:00a.m. and I don't know why.
- After that experience, I did some reading to figure out
what had happened, came across Budd Hopkins's mail address and sent him
a letter. He put me in touch with a couple of hypnotherapists but I was
not able to remember anything of that night, between the time I closed
my eyes after seeing the light, to the time I rudely "woke up"
(was "switched on"). I have tried about three of four hypnotherapists,
but was never able to remember a thing, and I so desperately want to remember.
- After this event, for the next few years, I had very
vivid dreams, of a kind I never had before. In one such dream, I was lying
on a small bed in a small, white hospital room. Everything was white. I
was feeling very relaxed and I couldn't move. At the foot of the bed were
two persons, both exactly the same height, both wearing very dark, perhaps
black, military-type uniforms which had high Mandarin-type collars. (They
were the only things in the room that were not white). The faces of the
people were completely fuzzy and I couldn't see any details. One of them
held two small, black rectangular objects, one in each hand.
- The small objects reminded me of large cufflinks and
were about that size. That person slowly approached me and finally touched
the objects to my neck, one to each side of the area where the "Adam's
Apple" is. At that point, I felt this extreme rush of vibration /
energy like he had just touched 2 live high voltage wires to my body. My
entire body vibrated intensely and had this incredible energy rush and
I woke up immediately, still feeling this incredible energy flowing through
my body. It took a while for it to subside.
- Another dream was very short and felt like a "flashback".
In that dream, I was lying in my own bed in my room, on my back with my
arms outside of the covers and laying straight down my side. Out of the
darkness I then saw a very skinny arm with a rather disproportionately
large hand that seemed to have only three very long and strange looking
fingers (I could not see any knuckles on the fingers). As I watched this
in my dream, I could not move. Then the hand grabbed my forearm with very
strong fingers. It wasn't a sudden grab, just a deliberate, fairly slow
approach and grab. At that point I woke up with a start.
- In yet another dream I was floating through the air about
2 stories off the ground. My back was toward the ground and I could not
move but I could somehow see that I was heading for the attic of a 2 story
house. I realized in my dream that I was going to smash into the house
but instead of doing so, I felt the most incredible sensation of passing
through the wall, feeling a feeling and sound something like when one opens
up a Velcro fastener (that "tearing" sound). It was like a million
tiny ripping or Velcro sounds and a feeling throughout my entire body of
that sound. I guess another way of putting it is that it was almost like
static electricity, for example, like when two pieces of clothing get highly
charged with static electricity and cling to each other, and the sound
the electricity makes (the "crackle") when they are forced apart.
- The sensation stopped once I was through the wall. I
then floated to a small table exactly the right size for my body. The table
was right in the middle of this high-ceiling attic, which was completely
bare. I didn't feel at all anxious but felt very calm, almost whimsical.
I didn't see anyone around but I decided that I wanted to experiment and
try to scream as loudly as I could, just because. I opened my mouth (which
along with my eyes was the only other thing on my body not paralyzed) and
I let out as big a scream as I could muster, at the top of my lungs. Although
I could feel that I was screaming very loudly, not one sound came from
my mouth. I then woke up to find myself trying to scream but with a very
weak sound coming from me.
- I have come to realize that each of these dreams contain
aspects of abduction-related phenomena. These dreams felt very different,
especially in content, to my "normal" dreams. There are other
related dreams I have had, but I think I should stop here.
- Thanks for your time.
- Take care.
- HBCC UFO Research would like to thank this person for
relating the experience to me. Also I am certain there are others out there
who have gone through, or are going through similar experiences and would
like to know they are not alone in all of this.
