kitkat Posted November 14, 2020 Share Posted November 14, 2020 It was the long hot summer of 1976 and it was here that I had my first weird experience with the paranormal. I was 16 years old at the time and working on the Isle of Arran in a hotel for the summer. The hotel was on the edge of a bay looking westwards towards the heads of Ayr over the Firth of Forth. The staff chalet was about 20 feet from the main hotel. The other staff had stayed behind inside the hotel for a late night chat with the owners, but I was tired and wanted to get to bed, so I left alone and walked to the chalet. It was a very clear night with no wind or clouds. It was very quiet too. When I opened the door of the chalet, I glanced out the window before putting the light on. What I saw there would change my life. Beyond the window was a stretch of garden bordered with a hedge large enough to block the edge of the sea and the small beach down to it. The sea was about 80 feet from the chalet. Beyond this hedge I saw a large glowing triangle hanging in the air like nothing on this earth should be able to do. It was huge. For some reason despite the shock of what I was seeing, I quickly turned around to check to see if the shape I saw was a reflection on the glass from behind me. It wasn't. I turned back to the window and opened it wide to look out and the thing was still there. It wasn't moving or pulsating or anything. It was just hanging there. Everything was totally silent - including that thing. I felt as if I was glued to it unable to move (shock). I noticed that it seemed like a triangle on its side and I also noticed it hung beyond and above the hedge - important details in working out the size later on. I never saw a reflection on the water so it must have been closer to the shore given my eyeline. It was solid and I noticed that the light got denser in the centre but there were no lights as such as the whole thing was emmitting a solid yellow white light, which gave no definition other than its shape. In retrospect I realised that anything that bright would not have defined edges as such but it did. I'm sad to say I wasn't thinking very rationally and just stood frozen with my mouth hanging open whilst all the time thinking 'WTF is That?' I became aware of a crunching noise outside the chalet door and realised almost immediately, another staff member was approaching the chalet ajoined to mine. I screamed at her to look out the window and as soon as I shouted to her the triangle shot off in the blink of an eye. She saw nothing on her journey to the chalet nor from her window. When this thing left, it was soundless and I was left with the impression that it either took off in a direct straight line at a speed I couldn't fathom, or it was swallowed up by the night space around it like it shrunk to an atom in an instant. I can't remember the babbling I did after it left but I refused to go outside and when my room mate came in and I told her what I'd saw she never beleived me. No-one did. I spent the rest of that night afraid to sleep incase it came back for me. Why I thought that, I don't know. My mind was totally blown by this experience and on its heels,a few days later I had a spontaneous out of the body experience. I never had anything like it before and again my room mate who was in the room at the time of this OOBE, thought I was either just nuts or some kind of attention whore. I'm just an ordinary person, not given to showing off or sharing intimate stuff, but this experience became one of a few that have intruded on my life and left me searching for answers. Back in 1976 no-one talked about this stuff and it was not easy to get written information about it. Obviously nowadays, there is such a wealth of opinion which I have taken on board. When you get slapped in the face with something that shouldn't exist and in which you have had no prior knowledge of, it leads you to acknowledge that this world we live in, is a vastly stranger place than what we are taught it is. It was the begining of a journey for me, which 46 years later, I am still on. 5 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
