Hello folks. I would like to describe something that happened to me 42 years ago when I was 16 and see if any one here has ever read about what it may have been. This "thing" happened about 6 different times during the fall and winter of 1975. I would go to bed at about 11pm and sometimes would lay there in bed just thinking what I was going to do the next day or just thinking about the day past when I would begin to hear a very faint humming type of quiet wind roaring. Once I could focus on the sound, I could also begin to see something up in the same corner of the ceiling above a closet door. It was always the same thing in the same place. It begins like a small Coffey can size of swirling semi transparent grey smoke, and quickly develops into a larger and larger swirling, tumbling mass. As it grew in size, the sound of that humming type of groaning with varying pitch would eventually "look" as if it would literally blow everything around in the room that isn't tied down but the swirling mass had no physical effect on items in the room. It would quickly encompass all the air in the room as it made its way directly to me and in an instant, it would completely emplace its self into my chest just as if I had a huge shop vac in my solar plexus sucking this swirling loud mass into my body. The result of this was complete paralization of my body except I could roll my eyes and breath. Also, every inch of my skin was tingling with pins and needles.....badly. I was scared out of my wits and would fight this thing with every thought wanting it out, out, out! but to no avail. As soon as I gave up fighting it mentally, it would leave out of me the same way it came in. The first time this happened, I shot out of bed and ran down to my grandmothers room and told her all about it to see if she knew what it was but she only said their are many different forest spirits that one may have tried to take over my body. Once one of these episodes was over, The clock would show time of 12:30 to as late as 1:30. Mind you the entire episode "felt" like 2 or 3 very lonnng minutes but according to the clock, it was anywhere from 1 to 2 hours latter in the night. A long time ago I read that abducties also suffer paralysis but I have a hard time going there since there is not the smallest inkling of memory of me going or doing anything other than what I have described. So, there it is........ has any one here ever read of such a thing or maybe could suggest a book that describes just what the heck was going on all those years ago?
