strange unexplained stuff that has happened to you? please share


Recommended Posts

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.

 Edit: Just to say it was the Firth of Clyde and not Firth of Forth and 44 not 46 years later!  🙄😳

During a meditation, which went unexpectedly fairly deep without any intention from myself, I became aware of a single celled organism in my mind's eye :) The first thing I registered was it surprise and sheer delight at being noticed. It then offered to share consciousness and I accepted. What came next was a bit of a shock that I wasn't ready for. It's consciousness had no centre and so had a limitless quality to it. I felt my self, the me, completely disappearing and what was coming over me was so immense, so powerful that I shrank away from it in fear. I've always regretted pulling away as I think it may have been one of the profoundest happenings of my life. I know it sounds a little silly but there it is, honest as I felt it. 

 

Another was, whilst lying in bed one night, something came over me and I was told to lie still. I knew that where ever this was coming from that it was of goodness so I had no need to be afraid, I was safe. I felt like a diamond was being pressed into my forehead around the area of my third eye. After a while once it had opened, or whatever, what felt like an eagle (chuckles) flew out of my forehead and out of the room. I had to wait a few moments and then it came back and re-entered my forehead. With it had come 3 spiritual doctors/healers of a sort. They were male. Actually there was a forth whom I was less aware of but felt that he was some kind of overseer. The 3 spiritual healers proceeded to take up parts of my aura and swish it with their hands or some kind of wand maybe. After that was done, they left. For the rest of the night I had a great deal of energy rising up and down my spine.

 

One other I recall occurred whilst looking at a picture of Krishnamurti. The picture below. I was just looking at it and had, without realising, entered into a deep meditative state. In this state, I became aware, and I use this term sparingly, of his enlightened state. I saw and felt the power of an ocean that nothing could stand against yet it was delicate and subtle whilst being immensely powerful at the same time. Then the picture came to life and I felt his presence in the room and a recognition that he had been viewed from a point of no self. The only way he could've noticed. I have since read that similar ocurred to Krishnamurti and his brother whilst staring at a picture of the Buddah. They described it as being sent a thought by "the Great One". I have since felt that on occasion, I'm looked in on, although I know I'm not helped by them in any way.

Look forward to your experience then Thestrong - altered state yeah?  Acid, aya, mushrooms?   Anyway yeah chuck it on the forum when you can.👍

 

alcohol + shady acid 

 

EDIT: That combination resulted in a "rush of strangeness". 

 

Still the short version of the story, but one detail to mention is that I got out of the strangeness by hugging a person lovingly, and it ended, and I've recovered since. Hah!

 

I might return to this topic here again. Thanks for making the thread!

Ok.. I don't know if I'm losing the plot, but I keep seeing glitches as a figure that appears for a split second.. Not quick enough for me to work out what/who it is.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was an entity summoned by all of the evil around us to keep me down and miserable, as I have been since all of this crap started. I know that's a bit doom and gloom... But what if? 

These entities could be everywhere. 

 

What can we do to stop this? 

I am praying daily, really praying. 

I just feel haunted by something.. 

That's a shadow being. Fucking scary right? What if I told you these beings were extremely wise and civilised and they have a purpose which involves helping those in distress and if you tell it you are aware of its presence and you are afraid it will attempt to accomodate to your fear of it to make you more comfortable. It has the ability to to posses you, play with your dynamic reality in ways that gaslighter would salivate over but it chooses to reveal itself to you? It doesn't want to scare you by its sudden approach. Check out the traffic light games in the seedier side of porn sites little cupcake tied down tight to the world as an enormous thing of power that could eat you all up in an instant is towering above you. What if you say red light and it stops or amber and it approaches vary softly. When the light is green you'll learn things about how these beings communicate that will freak you out at first (well the less the brain experts can pervert for their own manipulative ends the better) but its just communication. How its done I have no clue but that's all it is, despite how powerful those kinds of abilities would be for an ordinary being. These beings cant be bought with material things as material reality is theirs to do whatever they please with. As you can see from the means of communication your soul is at their disposal if they could be bothered communicating to you all day but its just communication beyond just hearing auricals. Getting over my fear I found a being telling me things through its strange communication means that helped me make sense of all the lies people were having me believe. These are scary gentle giants that mean us well. They could squish you in an instant if they wanted so why dont they?

 

I have a theory. These are older humans who have disembodied or have no body as they cast it off like an eggshell centuries ago. They appear very wise and surprisingly considerate despite their powerfulness. Imagine yourself to be a sparrow being fed by an enormous human. Imagine your a human feeding a little sparrow. A flock of sparrows come to get a feeding but one little sparrow leaps up and perches on your finger. Would you crush it for being so small and puny? Swallow it and go yum yum that was tasty. These beings dont have material bodies which need to eat humans. I think you would feed the cheeky little sparrow which didn't fear you and you would gain something from the interaction with the sparrow. What you gain is something the sparrow also gains from you (besides bread). These hard to quantify gains are a type of food. Have a feast with them but acknowledge its greater size little puppy. Theres no leash when you say red light but don't be afraid of the darkness just because its dark. Try to make friends with the unknown, you will benefit enormously.

As far as i know a shadow that give me fear should not be something that i play with....but i also saw on a few occasion those type of sillouette and always a the corner of my eyes....and at a moment were i cant deny the timing of the moment i seen those shadows. It is scary at first, but i always believe since i heard about those shadow that they seem to feed on fear. I reacted to those events in the same way i react to a situation where i just past close of being killed or seriously injured....i laugh in a trilling way...and try to not give it too much attention/importance.

Weird things have happened to me to. 

When lying down and meditating, there was a starnge fluttering sound, in both ears. 

Only when i got so far into meditation. 

I thought maybe it was imagination, but when i did again it got stronger, and to the point i snapped out of it as I was a bit scared. 

I stopped meditation for a while and when i done it again it came back, exact same. 

It gets to a point that i stop, but want to know what happens if i keep meditating after the sounds and fluttering noises. 

Anyway i have no clue. 

Another weird thing that happened was i didnt know my real dad, but one time was housesitting a relatives dog, and seen the local newspaper lying there. 

Hadnt read one for years, 

Opened it up jokingly at, obituarys. 

There it was real dads obituary. 

A bit freaky was like what the hell

Don't get fluttering sounds but I get high pitched ringing sometimes. 

 

Never quite figured out what it is. The high speed communication of beings from another dimension?

 

Zen Meditation is all about crossing the abyss. 

 

You get to a point where darkness assails you, literal black emptiness. 

 

Some people can't handle it, they back away and snap out of the meditation, but you have to keep going with your focus forward until the deeper you go into the darkness that you break through to Nirvana effectively. It's like breaking out of the universe or some force that holds it together. Once you get past the void you expand and the universe appears inside your mind and you realise that size is all an illusion and that your true perceptive faculty can encompass the whole universe within itself.

I never understood the point of meditation, but tried it anyway.  Some funky stuff happened when I did it a year or so ago.  

 

For one thing I got doodle bopped either by a disembodied being or my own subconscious.  Can’t say it was terrible. 

 

Once I listened to some guided mediation lady on a YouTube video and a tiny flaming  chariot led by lions came out of me and rode around the room.  I wasn’t even totally into it. 

 

Another time I was transported to some class where others were meditating together and the teacher saw me and spoke to me.  Then I went to some Indian guys house where he took a broom and swept me with it.  Guess he thought I was filthy. 

 

So the moral is if you’re going to meditate have some objective because if you go in aimless just anything will happen.

my electric razor went off in the middle of the night for no reason at all, it sits on a table so the sound is amplified by about 10 times

 

scared the hell out of me

 

literally thought someone was breaking in my room with a chainsaw.

I have experienced many strange coincidences in my life to the point I now keep a coincidence diary, I suggest others do the same
