Light Beings?


I'm just curious to see if anyone here has ever seen/experienced these 'beings'. When I was very little, starting around age 3, I would wake in the middle of the night and see these 'men' standing around my bed. I had one of those canopy beds with my headboard against the wall. There were 8 of them. Three on either side of me and two at the foot of my bed. They never said anything. They would just stare down at me.

I remember them being old men at the time. But now I would guess them to be in their mid 60's. They were in white robes and had beards and they had a glow that emanated from them. They never spoke or smiled, only stared at me with very serious looks on their faces. I never felt afraid of them. In fact, it felt very normal to me and somewhat comforting. I would look at each one of their faces and then roll over and go back to sleep. This happened so often that it seemed very normal. When I got to be an older child, it stopped.

I have only read of one other person seeing these 'men' while meditating. They scared her. She said that they appear during times of great change or crisis in your life. She calls them 'the council'.

I am very curious to see if anyone here has seen them or has any insight into who they are and why they were around me so often?

Interesting to hear other opinions, I had a dream where I was on another planet I think bc I was in what looked like an orchard or bog and the sky was magenta, and I had about 3-5 light beings with me. They were not scary, in fact I felt an overwhelming feeling of love that was so wonderful. The woman was closest to me and it was weird I was taking serious mental note on her appearance; in front of my eyes, she was made of light, but in my mind's eye, I could see her as a human woman. Eventually found another person who had this dream around the same time as me, he said they spoke Russian and told him that was the oldest living spoken language. I have also heard they visited thousands around that time to assist in awakenings. This was a few months before my own awakening. It was a deeply profound experience for me. I had felt sad that I think I just cried to her and was comforted, As I had a lot going on in my life at the time, so its interesting to hear that perspective on here

MMm I think it was actually that she was seeing through to their dimensional space because were awareness was heightened at the time. So she climbed to "see" another dimension frequency which is why she was able to see them.

they usually are a astroprojected version of your concious that's why you see them during those times

Thanks everyone for the replies:)

Albator, Imogena & isisevangeline,

I was never afraid of them at all... In fact, I felt very comfortable with them and very safe. Yet, I knew they were very serious and were there for a reason... Not just visiting relatives, etc. I believe you are right, as my friend stated, that they help to either inform you of or guide you with your life events & chart.

YES at the time I had already faced difficulty (my father had just died a year earlier) and the life ahead of me was soon to be full of negativity, horrible abuse and later in life, very challenging physical illnesses (still dealing with those!)

So, you think that they were asking me if I was sure I wanted all of this? Can I change my mind? LOL! Just kidding;)

If anyone else has ever seen them, either while meditating or sleeping, I'd love to hear from you.

Ah, The Council of Sages. Don't be alarmed their not bad. Their good. As two others said before their there to watch you and consider your decisions about your own destiny.
Sometimes do this when your a child during the time before you rest. Because that is when most of us have are subconscious minds open to other spirits who can hear us.
They make certain are decisions that we choose are right for us, for are spirit I mean.

The older men/women in robes strike me as definitely being the Council. This is their position, and never incarnate. Their task in this creation is to aid our spirits during the time we are creating our charts. They are like our parents; "are you sure that's what you want to do?"
What are you going to do when this happens?". They can check on us if we've charted a particularly trying lesson plan. As I understand it, they are available to us in times of crisis. But more often, your Guide will appeal to them and they supposedly have the ability to change your life-chart if they feel that you cannot handle a certain event. Did YOU notice any trying life event that happened soon after those men would visit?

Thank you. I can remember even feeling like I blinked and she was still there! Usually the things I see come in the way of a dream and stuff. But, she was (I swear) so real! No, I know nobody was in the house (physically anyway) but she was just so expressionless it freaked me out! She was just standing there with her arms hanging at her sides and just so... I can't explain it! I mean I swear I blinked and she was still there! Do you guys ever have those sleep paralysis things happen? They are hard to handle in itself but this was just so hard because I kept thinkng I need to help my baby! You know thuh the women didn't seem to take notice of my daughter either. She was just staring at me! 😲

I'm not sure who they are but if they didn't hurt you and you didn't feel threatened then I'm sure they're all good.

Oh and Mlkc05, I would love to PM you with info but I'm afraid my website skills are slightly crap lol. Well basically I'm sure the women didn't mean your daughter any harm. Because if she did surely she'd be looking at you with a smug face at the fact that you were helpless. Maybe if she comes again you might be less stressed and in an easier mood to communicate with, so she might bother to talk and make her point of why she's there. Just I thought I don't know that much to be honest sorry.

Ok, I have a question. I know I should submit my own story but I tried and the submit page is down. I had a real freaking experience last night. I had o e of the dream paralysis things happen. I went ot bed and just immediately fell asleep. I woke up unable to move and I saw everything happening. AI saw my daughter get out of my bed and got o the living room to my husband. I was looking at her climbing out and I saw as clear as day a woman standing directly behid though my daughter didn't evne seem to notice her. The woman was very skinny and had bigger ears and was wearing a black leotard/bathing suit. She scared me. I don't know if it was because she was unexpected or if she was bad. But, I was struggling (like we do when in thins state) but failed time after time. I kept screaming in my head "stay away from my daughter! Leave her alone! You are not welcome here to harm my family! Leave her alone!" over and over again. She was standing there just staring at me with no expression on her face whatsoever! She really freaked me out! Can somebody help me? Who is she? What does she want?! Why now! I have had these experiences before but never seeing something like this. I tend to have more medium abilities and I am really trying to get them built and to grow. But, they usually come in dreams. Thank you. You can PM me too I just need some help as I was very rattled by this experience. When I woke up she was gone. Thank you for letting me submit this here! And thank you for your help!

Hi realjoy - I find the term used by your friend, i.e. The council, to be a very nice one indeed and probably very meaningful. I cannot provide insight on who/what they may be, but I believe that if your gut feeling told you you had nothing to fear, then your gut feeling was probably right. Did the ones your friend would see scare her because she felt they were harmful or was it 'just' the fear of the unknown? Did the ones you used to see always be the same (you mentioned you would look at their faces)? Finally, if your friend's theory is correct, did you feel that during the years when they appeared these were years of crisis/change in your life that then settled down a bit?

i don't know of what they are but I think they are guarding you. I don't have a clue of what the council means but I think they are your ancestors I guess. ❤
