The time we lived in Mississippi was really a very interesting time. For whatever reasons the psychic vibrations are very high there. At least they were for my family and me.
Even though I had my own bedroom, from time to time I would push my boy's beds together and sleep between them. On several occasions, I would awake from a sound sleep and my eyes were already focused on the door. It always happened at the same time in the wee hours of the morning between 2:00 and 4:00 a.m.
The first time it happened, I didn't see anything and I didn't understand why my eyes would just open up when I knew that I was asleep. Then one night it happened again but only this time I saw a small shadow the size and height of my son that was sleeping closest to the door. When the shadow walked into the room, it sat on my son's bed and aligned its hip with his hips. My son was laying half way on his side and half way on his belly. The shadow then turned its legs the way his legs were turned then laid its upper torso into his the same way he was laying. I rose up and wiggled him to make sure he would move. He did. I also checked his breathing which was also fine. I lay back down and went back to sleep.
All I could think about the next morning was that really was something to see someone that's been astral traveling return to their body.
Another time, not much later than what happened with my son, my eyes just opened up again and that time I saw a shadow of an adult standing leaning against the dresser with its arms folded. I couldn't tell if it was male or female. I made a conscious decision not to blink because I wanted to see what it would do. As I stared at it, it got lighter and lighter until it just faded away. I never knew who that was or what they wanted. We lived in the country next to a cemetery and I've often wondered if someone was just out for a stroll or if it was somebody just checking on us.
