Howard N's Experience

Experience description:   

This is not the first experience that I've had but this is the most recent and the one that stands out the most. I was sleepy and wanted to take a nap before my preschooler came home from school. I went to my room and lay down and it seemed that the minute I went to sleep my eyes just popped open as if someone had a remote that controlled my body and they pressed the open your eyes button. I was lying on my side and was only able to view my room form that angle, my bed room was small. When my eyes opened I felt something vibrate through my body it felt like a vibrating wave of energy staring at my feet and making its way to my head and then back down to my feet again kind of like a massager, on the inside of my body) I was not able to move.

Then it eased its way out of my body and sat on the edge of the bed then it lifted its arms and began to stretch I only stared at it. Then it stood up and stretched some more. I still only looked. Then it started walking a round and I remember trying to tell it to come back but I was unable to speak but I thought it was going to leave out of the bedroom and leave me there in the bed unable to move. So I started thinking come back and from the very first thought it understood me and turned around and seemed to look at me. It looked like energy it was colored with red and blue lights and I knew it was female. so after it looked at me it turned around and began to dance around the room getting closer and closer to the door and from my position I was not able to see the door so I began to over and over demand in my head that it come back and it seemed that it was teasing me by dancing and ignoring me. Then finally it stopped walked to my bed and got back in. Then for a second time my eyes opened and I got out of the bed.
