I am not reporting an actual sighting, but more of an abduction, I guess.
I was at a friend's house till about 11:30pm on Saturday (Sep 4, 2010). Me
and my family got home about 11:30ish, put the kids to bed and my husband
went to bed too. I decided I wanted to stay up and watch some TV in the
living room. Well I must of fallen asleep, I awoke suddenly to a paralyzed
feeling on the couch. I then saw red, green lights out of the corner of my
eye and felt as if someone was in my living room. Then all of a sudden I
felt I was being led down some kind of corridor, with something holding my
hand - it felt cold and clammy. Also I could hear something telling me in
my head not to be afraid. I then remember asking why they were doing this,
and the response, in a weird sounding voice, was, "we have to do this". I
then remember laying on a flat table and something telling me don't be
afraid. I then remember asking someone to hold my hand, and something did.
I then asked if it would hurt and they said just a little but I would not
remember it. Then I remember seeing a big instrument of some kind coming
down to my face then I started freaking out but couldn't move. Then I
awoke all of a sudden on the couch feeling very weirded out, and it was
5am in the morning. I never sleep that long if I'm on the couch, it was
almost like I was missing a few hours. When I got up in the morning
finally, I jokingly said to my husband that aliens took me during the
night. He just laughed it off. I went to the bathroom and noticed my
lounge pants were on backwards. Well the next couple of days after I felt
like I'd been run over by a truck, and my legs felt very sore, and
extremely tired and fatigued. I tried looking for any evidence of any cuts
etc, but I saw nothing. I can't stop thinking about it, I feel like I'm
going crazy even thinking it happened. I do suffer from sleep paralysis
once in a while, but this has never happened. I am a believer of aliens
living out there somewhere, but did this really happen to me or was it
just a dream? I can't talk to my husband about it cause he might think I'm
going crazy lol. I do not recollect seeing the faces of the beings, just
the touch of the skin and how it felt. What do you think about this? I
think about it all day long since it happened a week ago.
UFO*BC Response #1:
I don't know what you experienced.
Some of what you describe could be
attributable to sleep paralysis. Of course, your account does seem to
match the typical narrative of an "alien abduction".
Note that the mind can experience
very vivid and realistic experiences as a result of sleep paralysis and
other sleep disorders and dream phenomena such as lucid dreaming.
The parts which I see as resembling a
sleep paralysis episode are that you feel asleep in a place where you
normally don't sleep (the sofa) which would interrupt your normal sleep
cycle. Note that people can have sleep paralysis if they are having
trouble falling asleep. Some people experience visual and auditory
hallucinations during sleep paralysis (the lights as an example). Sleep
paralysis is almost always accompanied by a perception of a presence in
Is it possible that your perception
of the cold hands, the message in your mind and the big instrument in your
face was just a dream? I don't know. I was not there.
The one detail which seems most
abnormal was that you noticed that your lounge pants were on backwards -
but is it possible that you were tired and sleepy when you changed into
I suppose it is possible that you
were "abducted" but I can't conclude that from what you are telling us.
You indicate that you have experienced sleep paralysis before so it is at
least possible that this is another episode which is just a bit overloaded
with other "abduction like" narrative. Perhaps it is just your mind
repeating fragments from movies and TV you have seen or books you have
Your description of the instrument in
front of your face reminds me of a scene from "Fire in the sky". Have you
watched that movie or read Travis Walton's book?
I don't know if other members of
UFOBC have read your experience but I thought you were looking for some
UFO*BC Response #2:
Gord has made some good observations
and suggestions. At this point I can't say whether your experience was
real or not. Could you provide the exact date and approximate geographical
location of the incident? In case we get any UFO reports from that area.
Please keep us posted if anything
else unusual occurs or if you recover any additional memories.
Many thanks for your report.
I live in Mission B.C., the west
side, towards Maple Ridge. It happened on Saturday-Sunday Sept
4th/5th...time frame.....probably between 11:30 pm and 5 am. I will
definitely keep you posted if anything else happens, or memories pop up.
