Experience description:   

Please note I've been to many doctors/shrinks/sleep studies looking for answers. They all believe I am perfectly normal and healthy...I now believe so to.  I was always looking for an answer and still am.

It always started as waking up in my bed (thought I was awake) hearing banging..soft then as it moved closer became real loud. Feeling something grabbing me, hovering over me, trying to scare me. Seeing someone in the corner of my room just looking at me. This went on for months. One day I got up...this is when I finally realized I was sleeping because I felt different and saw myself and my husband sleeping in the bed. I had the vibrations at times flew out my windows explored some and had some great experiences.

The concern I have is....there is always someone waiting for me. Some friendly some with no heads. They talk and talk to me. I hold conversations with them for hours. Every one different from the next. Some bring me to parties, others bring me to school. Some come back others don't. One gave me lottery numbers to play (which I never play) and I played them the next day and got 4 out of 6 numbers. That night he came back and told me he had to do that so I would believe in him. I haven't seen him since. I remember at least 4 hours of what goes on at night. I feel and think just like I do now when I am at this state of sleeping. I've never been further than outside my house and in the sky around my house.

They seem to like to keep me in my house. Although the inside of my house does change. Sometimes they have Christmas trees there and want to celebrate other times its kind of like I get to see what they are experiencing or what to experience. Some give me names others don't talk. They always seem like they are trying to teach me something. For instance...It took a while for the guy with no head to teach me that ..when they talk to me they don't use their voice, that's why he had no head. After I realized that...I never saw that guy again either.

I no longer can believe that these things that happen are just a dream. I do believe that when I die, what I am experiencing now will some how help me. They have told me that I relate all of this to sleep because this is the only way my mind can make sense of it, but when I am ready I wont have to go to sleep to talk to them.
