I'm just beginning to explore this online, never knew that others has experiences as well because I never shared with others. I am older now, and know I am a stable, healthy person so these experiences were quite possibly what are considered paranormal. As a child, I can recall laying on the floor in the study of my parents home and watching a shadow like person almost playing with me by swirling in different directions "in" the ceiling. Now, I say in because it (I have a sense it was he) appeared as extending out from the ceiling. I know how this sounds odd, which is the main reason I never shared before. He was not unfriendly, in fact I would laugh with him as he danced around the ceiling. It happened a few times and then never again.
After that, there was a home being built across the street, I was about 9 years old by this point. I was gazing out my window and saw a figure in the window, this time I had a sense it was female. I waved, she disappeared and then later entered my home. I don't recall how, because my logical adult mind cannot believe I would have heard her speak, but she either told me her name was Elizabeth, or I named her. She was more a presence than something I could see once she was closer to me. She loved piano music and even lifted a tiny sample size perfume in front of me and my friends, so I was not the only one who witness this... She turned on my music box as well. I actually remember saying goodbye to her at one point as my mind was questioning whether she was real or not... And I never felt her again.
Then, years later, I was a junior in college sleeping in my parents basement on the pullout sofa with my boyfriend. We turned the tv and VCR off and started to go to sleep. All of a sudden we saw a multi dimensional multi colored prism shape rotating in the tv. He said to me "I thought we turned the tv off." I replied "we did." So, we pushed the on off button again and nothing happened, so we ignored it and thought something was wrong with the tv and tried to go to sleep again. Then, I became freezing cold and had a horrible sensation someone or something was there. I sat up and saw a shadow figure of a person about 10 feet from the bottom edge of the bed. As I scanned upwards over the figure, I noticed the eyes were red, bright like fire. I also had a sense it was female. I dove under the covers and told my boyfriend we had to go upstairs right now. He asked why and I was too scared to say anything more, I just knew we had to get away.
That kind of experience never happened again, but I always had a sense some spirit was around my son. When he was 3 and doing a cute assignment for preschool. The teacher traced their bodies onto huge piece of paper and the kids took it home and had to artistically create themselves... My son made his hair brown, and made a shirt and shorts, belt, barefoot, and then I said I'll go in the kitchen and you keep going, you are doing a great job. When I returned maybe 5 minutes later, he had drawn bird like being all around him. I comment what a great idea to add birds and butterflies. He said "no mom, those are the spirits, they are all around us." I asked, "ooh, what kind of spirits do you mean?" (I had never taught him about spirits, we didn't go to church or synagogue or anything at that point). He replied, "they are angels and spirits who are always nearby." I told him what a beautiful thought to include them in your self picture art.
Then, when he was 5, near Christmas (we did put up a tree, but it wasn't religious), he came downstairs and said "Jesus came to my room." I said, "oh that must have been a vivid dream!" He said "no, I was awake, and he said to me you will always know me and God." I stopped what I was doing, and remembering the child in that movie the sixth sense and how bad he felt when he wasn't believed, I questioned carefully. "What a nice thing for you to have experienced, are you sure you were awake and it wasn't just a nice dream?" He's said, "no, I was awake for real." Then I asked "how did you know it was Jesus?" He said he just knew. We were not Christian. I was raised with. Christmas and Easter, not church. His dad was raised Jewish. We did not belong to any religious organization. He had friends who were, but that's it.
I struggle to this day, he is now almost an adult, wondering what that was about. I did start going to church, and reading bibles and tenakh and all sorts of religions to try to figure this out. When I was doing yoga, my instructor took me to a group which dealt with auras etc. They gave us an exercise and then asked to tell what color we perceive our own aura to be, mine was yellow gold almost white gold. The leader came up to me and said I was "special". This freaked me out and I never returned. A pastor told me that I was "charged" with protecting this boy as he has a special purpose, but I would protect him anyway bc he is my son.
As an older adult, I have had 1 instance in which my significant other described me and how I talked and what I did over the course of several hours. Not me at all. The words I would never say, the sexual requests I made during that time. Never. I don't recall it at all. As I was waking the next day, I had a nightmare about a demon and a man who is our exterminator entered my dream and said "oh man, you have a demon here and you need to tell it to get out bc it's going after your family." I then yelled at the top of my lungs, get out, you are not welcome here, get out, you cannot have me or any of us. Then I woke up. Does anyone know what all of these experiences mean? Thanks for any and all opinions and advice. Nothing has happened since.
