I am not easily spooked but last night's experience has left me scratching my head
I was in bed and had been asleep but I sensed something was going on and I woke up. First I felt there was something outside on the patio (my bedroom has a glass sliding door that faces the backyard and there is a small patio outside it. My bed is parallel to this door about a metre away from it. I closed my eyes and opened them again and saw this huge dark humanoid shape standing right beside the head of my bed and it had it's arms around several smaller figures as if shielding or protecting them. It was so solid that I screamed! I looked again and it was gone from sight but I could still feel the energy. It freaked me so bad that I got up and left the bedroom for a few minutes to get myself together. I was able to go back to the room and slept peacefully the rest of the night.
This morning I got out of bed and my son who sleeps in the room next to me, tells me he heard me scream. My other two children didn't. He has had a bad back all week. He said that something weird happened to him last night too. He was awake but he thought he was dreaming (I think he was in a trance or communicating telepathically) when he was shown a hidden camera inside a light fitting. Then he said he looked under his bed and there was a small alien with red eyes and it had a pronged device that looked like a tuning fork and it was somehow connected with the camera.
Not sure what was going on, but it sure was strange...
