one night in july 1987 when i was 11 years old i was awoken by a humanoid figure outside of my window. it was lit from behind so i saw the shadow and outline. time seemed to standstill. i was afraid but i covered my head and eventually i went back to sleep. in the morning i could find no evidence of what happened and i did not mention it because i was afraid and thought that maybe it was just a dream. a few years later i was in my bedroom sleeping when i was awoken by a figure at the end of my bed. i sensed that this was the same figure that i had seen a few years earlier. this time i could not move. from the second event, i often found myself waking up outside of my bedroom. i sometimes found myself in my car, in the driveway listening to music and i once myself at a local beach in my car, even though i'm sure i went to bed in my bedroom that night. during this time, i often had weird sensations in my body and extremities and also strange mental sensations. i often found myself daydreaming in school or wherever i was and looking at myself as if through another person's eyes from across the room. if i closed my eyes, i always saw a huge, spaceship like structure in the distance with blinding red pulsating lights. strange things like this happened to me until i was 27 years old. this is also the year that i moved to japan and since i've been living in japan i have not had any of these events that i'm aware of. i just want these facts to be recorded as i'm not sure how much longer i'll be able to recall these details.
