My friend and I encountered the strangest and most terrifying thing we've ever seen while backpacking in Thailand. I have no explanation and would love insight.

One night when I was 17 years old in a foster home in murrieta ca, I slept in the living room cuz I got stoned and well I woke up around 2 maybe 3 but I felt weird like something was next to me so I sat up and I saw this black.box sitting where the coffee table was supposed to be but the box was levitating off the ground and right next to it was a perfect black sphere same size as the box something inside said go to sleep but even weirder it felt as if that wasn't what woke me up I just felt like I was being watched so I fell asleep and never told anyone till now.

What you saw was Eddie, Zato 1’s partner


bndboo

All I heard was when you’re in Thailand you should definitely try the drugs

When I was still in my crib, this 'thing' was standing by my bed trying to get ahold of me to take me. He looked kind of like a scary leprechaun. I was three and at that time, I don't think the scary leprechaun movies were out(1976). It pulled me out of my bed, from below, so I guess it was my astral body he wanted. However, I woke up later, and it was gone. I don't really remember much from that age, but I will never forget this experience.


GumpieGump

I wonder if that could be a possible reason for SIDS? Something taking a babies "soul" (for lack of a better word) at night? Creepy AF. Ur comment reminds me of that monsters & mysteries in America episode where that single mum had some kind of evil gnome/dwarf thing on her property, (iirc) which was also seen by the next occupant of the house when they unexpectedly came across each other online!


durbry

Oh God. Never thought of that, although it couldn't take my soul!


Toma_459

A few minutes ago, i just read a relate of paranormal experience in thailand in a hotel, it must be a common thing there.


MazzGyver

Maybe there was a a slight Carbon Monoxide leak, causing both of you to hallucinate, and the only reason you saw something similar could have been because light from the street created moving shadows in that specific corner of the room.


AntiCabbage

U make words sense. I like u.

I had a green glowing idk I guess person come to my bed when I was about 10 years old. This thing or person woke me up in the middle of the night. I closed and opened my eyes a few times to make sure I wasn't dreaming the last time I opened my eyes it moved towards me and said shush I'm not going to hurt you. At that point I closed my eyes covering my head with my blanket and froze. I couldn't breathe. That night I learned the meaning of scared stiff. I layed there for about an hour before I got my courage up to look. It was gone. I still have no idea what or who that was and why they were there. The good thing is my parents did believe me. I haven't told anyone outside my family because I knew that they would think that there was something wrong with me. Good thing nowadays people are more open.


eminemgato

Was the green person bald?


Ivan__8

I mean you were 10 years old, I don't think people wouldn't have thought something is wrong with you, probably just thought that you lying.


white_whabbit

I'm older and years ago people really thought you were off your rocker if you told them something like that. Today it's commonplace but back then.


cH1XoR

Even nowadays I would say people think you’re off your rocker if you talk about that stuff! I never tell anyone in rl about my experiences, unless I know they’ve had their own experiences. I’ve only ever met two people like that in rl.


BboyStatic

It’s highly possible both you and your friend consumed something that can cause hallucinations. All it would take to have a shared experience is a moving shadow on a wall or ceiling, add a light reflection and now it’s something paranormal. Thailand is known to have drinks and foods that can cause hallucinations, there’s even articles of tourists going there to party and enjoy these items. Two Canadian sisters died there back in 2012 from ingesting what local authorities are saying is “Deet”. Some drinks have insecticides, and some fish are even known to have hallucinogenic effects. This story also has another issue, you waited years to discuss the experience. You say that you both remember the exact same thing, so you both had to discuss what you experienced. As soon as one of you starts explaining your memory, it can easily become the shared version of the memory. Maybe your friend saw a black and red mass, but you only saw a black shadow. Waiting years will literally cloud the details, so as soon as one of you goes into details of the now old memory, it can become a shared memory that is exactly the same. Details are easy to mix up once time passes, even the most vivid moments of our lives can become slightly different in memory as time moves on. Eidetic memory is believed to be in less than two percent of children, and it carries forward into adults in even lower numbers. So you might remember a first date with your spouse, but the details wont always be accurate. The Mandela effect is a perfect explanation for your experience, and the way our brains work, only helps to make these experiences more believable when we revisit them in memories.


chrisr3240

Yep. Happens all the time in Phuket. Had some friends that were drugged by the bar owner of the beach hut they were staying in. Then robbed them while they slept.


Voiceofthemachines

I got downvoted like hell for saying this. Hasn’t anyone ever seen the movie The Beach? Lol


MrKguy

Replying to this with an old memory because I think it's a relevant example: One time I was at a family party while underage and got kinda drunk, so it was the first time I had ever drank enough to get to that point. At night I couldn't sleep all that well immediately and I was kinda staring at the ceiling. I turned to the side kinda and noticed a huge black bulge in the far ceiling corner of the room roughly the size of a head. Legit stared at it for like a minute slowly getting freaked out since the natural light coming through the windows didn't reach it at all and I couldn't see any detail. Then it fucking starts wiggling and scratching the ceiling and it starts crawling along the ceiling and I legit shouted out of panic. My mom, who was also in the room since we were sharing a guest bedroom, woke up and looked at it and paniced too because I said it was crawling towards our side of the room. Luckily she is more sober and goes for the stupid light switch. It's a helium balloon. It was a party balloon that came off its string from the party and rested in front of a stupid vent that turned on right when I was looking at it and got pushed across the ceiling, dragging and making a scratching sound in the dark. Long story short, if drunk me can have that kind of surreal experience, Im sure accidentally consuming a proper hallucinogen would do much crazier things. Additionally, my mom genuinely believed it was something crawling at us initially, like we were laughing and talking about it after the lights turned on and she said when I said out loud what I thought it was, she had the same perception of what it could be ie. It was a creature crawling at us on the ceiling. Lucky for her she had the awareness to turn on a light and confirm it. I imagine me stating what I was perceiving contributed to her perception of what was happening, in addition to her being half asleep and woken abruptly. I wouldn't be surprised if OP during the moment unconsciously used the small description initially given to him to form a similar perception, and that aided them both in describing said shared experience all those years later.


BboyStatic

That’s a perfect example of what can happen to multiple people looking at something from a perspective that is not based in reality. Unfortunately the internet has seemed to make people more gullible over time. I mean shit, we have thousands of people that think the earth is flat, this is what technology and advancement has given us, people that will literally believe anything for whatever reason. I think it’s sad that people are so detached from reality that they chose not to use deduction and reasoning to figure out things for themselves. But there’s something on the internet to back up almost any beliefs someone has, all they need to do is find it and cement their ideas into whatever they deem reality. This is also compounded by the way our brains work, so many things are done automatically for us, the brain fills in blanks on what we experience, so semi familiar shapes become specific things to our eyes.


GooseberryBumps

Sounds like you’ve encountered a phenomenon called “frend-zion”. I remember coming across it first in the old Scandinavian folklore. Google it.


Sunbird86

Sure you haven't been 'friend-zoned', bro? Check out Midsommar homes.


Sabai_interim

Can you give a link or sm bc I’m getting nothing googling ‘frend-Zion’ (without quotes), “frend-zion” (with quotes) or ‘friend-zion Scandinavian’ and I’m very interested in the phenomenon ETA: though I have now fallen into a rabbit hole of Scandinavian folklore regardless of this specific phenomenon so thank u c: ETA: ... Jesus am dumb


MagerDangers

Lmaooo he’s saying he was friend zoned , prob something Incel


Sabai_interim

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME jfc ill r/whoooosh myself. Ik I’m autistic and all but that’s just embarrassing


GumpieGump

If it makes you feel better I'm not autistic & it wasn't til I read your comment that I clicked what the poster meant LOL


quotekingkiller

Ok, my theory hinges on whether either of the two of you are lucid dreamers or have had one. If so, I believe the new experience caused your attention to shift, to a place where one can see an inorganic being.


quotekingkiller

Oh, they also seem to change shape or become something that " makes sense" to our first attention( our own description of our world) . Like our sefves trying to make something that we've never seen before something known to us. Their real forms are monstrous to us. We very well may appear as monsters to them. Always have to be alert for sudden changes in attention, never know what door you may open.


Light_of_the_w0rld

I had an experience of seeing a black mist in one of my apartments. This apartment was pretty old built in the late sixties. I was on a bottom floor and these apartments had the bottom floor 1/3 under ground. I noticed it made the room extra dark when I turned out the lights. Several times right before going to sleep, as I starred at the ceiling I would see a black mist forming at the corner of the room. It looked like a small cloud but was pitch black. The room was already dark and what ever this was was darker than the room. There was one time I awoke in the middle of the night and saw the mist right next to my head. I jumped out of bed and turned on the light and it was gone. Freaked me out. After that, I bought a color changing nightlight so I had some kind of light while sleeping and didn't see it again.


Professional-Lab-274

I think it could be a กระสือ? Try copy and pasting it onto google to see if กระสือ resembles what you and your friend had seen or not. (Sorry for my bad English)


stellarsphere

Your English is great!


Professional-Lab-274

Thank you! That means a lot


chibinoi

I did as you suggested, and I kinda burst out laughing at the translation of a suea (กระสือ), or filth-eating spirit—according to Google translate. Makes me wonder if the presence of this spirit (if indeed it was a suea) in their hotel room was implying that the spirit found OP and their friend to be “filthy” in some manner, and was there munching up all the gunk, hence why it kept getting bigger—like No Face from “Spiritef Away”.


Professional-Lab-274

According to my grandma, กระสือ are spirits with a head connecting to their lungs and their heart, floating and glowing. They eat babies and animals shits and they wipe their dirty mouths with people’s clothes. I don’t think they harm grown adults but when they are about to die, they spit into other people’s drinks and people that ate their spits turn into กระสือ at night. I don’t think they expand when absorbing energy tho


chibinoi

So…basically the suea was just waiting for them to sleep again so that it could riffle through their luggage to use their shirts as napkins? That’s even more funny 😆


Professional-Lab-274

And what’s funnier is that when you boil the clothes which have been used by กระสือ, the กระสือ will feel like it’s being boiled too and might even die!


BeveledCarpetPadding

Sounds like a way for parents to coherse their children to clean their clothes. I love it!


Professional-Lab-274

Haven’t thought about it this way!


chibinoi

OP had to have washed their clothes upon moving back. Checkmate, suea!

RogerTheRude

That's what makes me believe it even more. I have had similar experiences and once its over or when i am up in the morning i brush it off as a weird experience. You just kinda "Whoa, that was weird...anyway." and go on barely acknowledging as much as you think you would. Makes me wonder if its a psychological reaction to encountering inexplicable things.


cabletron46

About 26 years ago when I was in college I had an experience with two friends where the three of us saw a group of UFO's (or UAP) in the mid-day sky. The whole thing lasted for about 1 - 2 min. When they had all disappeared I was so psyched, and jumped up shouting, ready to tell the whole world. To my total dismay, my friends were almost completely silent for the entire 45 min drive back to campus, too stunned to talk about it. All they would say is that we saw "something," and neither of them ever mentioned it again.


Lennontristan27

My dad and his friend saw a UFO. He described it as a large black triangle with 6 lights- 3 illuminating the tips of the triangle and 3 in between. He said it took up the whole sky and everything was dark as it passed over their heads. Then it disappeared into the night. My dad said he and his friend were freaked out but my dad being who he is was SUPER excited about it. His friend refused to acknowledge what they saw and down right denied it when my dad brought it up. I wasn’t there, but I believe my dad. He had a mind open to the world around him a fascination with space and science.


Agreeable_Onion_4484

Sometimes it happens way too quickly to grab the phone and take a picture. I’m also curious like you, and I believe I experience something not natural. I saw the shadow of a woman in a dress dart into a room of my house. I was alone, and it felt more threatening then the other times. I also saw another shadow of a man with a hat standing still in my drive way when I was alone.


CrystalQuetzal

I sometimes wish people like you would actually experience something like that because you have no idea what it’s like seeing something scary and unexplainable right in front of you. When you feel fear and shock the LAST thing you ever think about is grabbing your phone for a video. Fight/flight mode takes over (or just freezing in place), so your thoughts are solely on survival and nothing else. The only realistic solution is to set up a cam that records all night if you’re in a place with high activity. Maybe OP & friend would’ve done this if they were actually paranormal hunting or knew it was haunted prior? As for why some people don’t share their experiences until much later, this topic is obviously generally weird. So discussing it with someone even if they had the same experience as you makes you fear being seen as crazy. Sometimes it takes time to process things fully before being willing to share (this goes for any traumatic event). Sorry for the length of comment and potentially coming across rash.

m_walusi

Sweet! Can we see the videos?


CrystalQuetzal

I’ve experienced things too, but my point was more about really scary things and not just something you’d find weird. If it truly doesn’t scare you then props to you of course, but I imagine if I saw what OP did I’d have the same reaction. They also apparently passed out and if that happened to you as well, then, no video! I also wonder that if you overcome the initial shock enough to reach for a phone, you may become too grounded and may not see whatever is there anymore. Just a theory.


TheLaw_Son

I hear you. I had some extremely traumatic things happen with me and my whole family. When you undergo that level of trauma. You really don't like talking about it. You compartmentalize to protect yourself. I only opened up about my Bell Witch experiences until years later and at the encouragement of my therapist to finally share what happened to me. Long story long, totally understand where both you and OP might be coming from. Stay strong.


CrystalQuetzal

I’m so sorry you’ve went through some bad things.. I hope talking to the therapist and eventually opened up has helped you. It can be hard but can also help sometimes. I hope OP can comes to term with all of this, and I’m sure having a friend experience the same thing can help.


KingVicodan

Well, I got nothing. Anything you get from us will be speculation. Glad I wasn’t there.


lyra-belacqua24

Well this is the worst thing I’ve ever read, and right before bed too, thank you


sleepbang

Phuket


KujKaub

It's clearly a Monster..


RoadrunnerJRF

You should have discussed it and even ask the front desk clerk or manager about it. Definitely an entity. The shapes it was producing was it attempting to manifest. Or just the way it wanted to present itself to you. Why you two passed out idk either that amount of fear or it drained your energy and that was enough to knock you guys out


optimist-prime-

People keep bringing up sleep paralysis as a possible explanation but I’ve never heard of a shared sleep paralysis experience where people see the exact same thing…TBh, this actually sounds like a potential alien abduction. The fact that one second you guys were super terrified and then the next thing you remember is waking up, sounds a lot like “lost time”, a common theme in alien abduction stories…When you woke up the next day do you recall anything that seemed out of place? Like maybe you were wearing different clothes or perhaps woke up with your friends shirt on or something…? Had stains or rips on your clothes that weren’t there before? I would suggest doing regressive hypnosis to see if you can remember what happened between the time that you noticed the entity and when you woke up…either way, glad you’re okay and felt strong enough to tell your story!


CrystalQuetzal

Not to mention with sleep paralysis you are sort of, you know, paralyzed! People always share stories where they wake up and sit up or stand or move etc. only to say “yeah it was just SP”. Like, aren’t we forgetting something here? If you’re experiencing SP and start waking from it then you may be able to move but whatever you’re seeing/feeling would dissipate within seconds. If you’re able to move but still seeing things, you are experiencing something other than SP


AustinJG

If shared sleep paralysis or even shared dreams exist, we should really be looking into that. It may point to psychic abilities existing. Or at least a link between all human consciousnesses.


Voiceofthemachines

So everyone agrees shared sleep paralysis and shared dreams are real but not shared drug trips? Ya ok.


AustinJG

I mean if you can share sleep paralysis and share dreams then why not drug trips?


Voiceofthemachines

Thank you


avocadbre

Who even said that lmfao


Voiceofthemachines

Oh sorry lol I’ve been getting downvoted like hell for stating that based on many personal experiences


Culbal

I rented a charming little two-story terraced house in Thailand for a few months. It was new and really nice to live in. One night I lift my head from the pillow, petrified. A male entity was standing on the bed and staring at me. It was blue in color and not solid, like moving plasma. It started to want to fit (dive?) into my breastbone, as if it wanted to take over my body. As it got closer to his goal it emitted like a scream which became more shrill as it got closer to my chest. This almost electric sound invaded my whole brain. It was not a very cool experience.


X_gamergirl_xX

I wish someone with art/editing skills could make a short animation of this absolutely crazy experience! You should def make an individual post about it!


Culbal

I have a lot of other experiences but like you can see, English language is not so easy for me. But yes, I will probably do it one day :)


NoStressOnMeLord

Your English is fantastic, I never would have guessed that it was a second language for you!


Culbal

Thanks ! For be completly honest, internet translation help a lot.


BrahminOrRamen

I've never heard of anything like this! I can't even picture it. But, I do have a question. How was it trying to dive into your breastbone? I understand if you can't explain. Thanks for sharing your story.


Culbal

Imagine it like a octopus who try to slide inside a 2 inch in diameter hole. Easy for him. It tooks him maybe 5 or 7 seconds for reach it, I don't know how but I think I tried to push him back. It's certainly why it tooks so long.


ameanjellybean

What happened after it didn't get in? Did it ever come back? How did you stop it?


Culbal

Who said he failed ?


NtFrmHere

Who is "He"?


Culbal

He/It. I'm talking about the ectoplasm.


NtFrmHere

So was I. What side effects has came from the...merger? I don't mean to pry just curious is all.


Culbal

I just "woke up" sweaty and fully disoriented. I don't think it was a dream or a lucid dream because the environment was exactly same than reality. Size of the room, furniture and even the color of the sheets. what makes me think that I really had an interaction with this entity is that a week before (or a week after I do not remember any more) a friend of my wife went to sleep at the house. After sleeping in the next room she told us in the morning that something had try several times to pull her out by the ankle. There's no reason she lied to us. Especially since Thai people are not ashamed to talk about this sort of things.


StreetBob37

I used to have a bunch of sleep paralysis and where I could feel myself floating out of my body. I used to try and see if I could astral travel but my fear of leaving my body always would keep myself grounded. Felt that if I left I would physics die. Sometimes I would end up in my room but it was darker, evil darker, sometimes I would see these evil looking monkeys on my dresser and I would try to lunge at them then wake myself out of the paralysis. Other times I would be in such a deep sleep but in paralysis and scary things would be happening in my dreams and I would moan as loud as I could because I couldn’t yell since I was so deep in it. My ex would always thankfully hear me and wake me up. Only been one time where I astral travels from the paralysis and had a very unique uplifting experience but most of the time it’s felt evil


Rareearthmetal

I used to be afraid to give in to whatever force drags you out but one day i said "god please take care me while I let go" and I let go and I went in a circle from my bed to the attic then around into my body again. Hasn't happened since but the closest I've seen to it is in a movie called "waking life"


StreetBob37

The only good experience I had from it was I was sleeping on the couch at my grandparents after a night of being maxed stressed out from a situation that happened and as I fell asleep I had the paralysis and drifted into the super white room with nothing there but it felt so peaceful more than I’ve ever felt before then I ended up at my parents house in front of their bedroom door then I finally came out of it and woke up. The whole next day driving home I felt more calm than I ever have in my whole life. It was definitely strange and very cool at the same time


jessedevries

My first experience with sleep paralysis was horrible and terrifying. I was in a dream walking in a familiar place. In my dream I remember watching a corner with some green plants and hearing a musquito. Woke up from the sound of the musquito and opened my eyes. Could see my room a bit in the darkness and some black figure with red looking eyes sitting on my chest, I panicked and this black shaped evil thing started choking me. After some minutes and pure terror everything vanished and I was sitting in my bed looking around. Never felt this insane uncontrollable fear. Even when typing this I get the goosebumps while it happened years back. Like a year ago I had some same experience while just waking up. The sun had lightened up my room and I turned around to see the time on my digital alarm clock. It showed me the time, something like 11 a.m. But all a sudden the time disappeared and it was just an empty clock. Not knowing how that could even happen I felt some uncontrollable fear coming up. I knew that it was a sleep paralysis after the earlier experience so I closed my eyes and listened to something walking towards me. It was like 5 seconds and then it faded. The first experience was creepy and traumatic. But the second one just after waking up while the sun was shining? Nor my brain fools me, or there was something visiting me that morning.


megsbennettfit

I’ve read a lot of encounters like this on Reddit where people say when they astral project they see something dark during paralysis. I wonder if it’s not an evil entity but something’s job to keep our souls from wandering.


scribblette

That’s a possibility, and I think it’s really interesting to consider. Another theory is that they’re sort of bottom feeders and they get energized by scaring newbies. Or maybe it’s an aspect of our collective or individual shadows. People say that when they try to radiate love and acceptance around them, the entities are often repulsed and retreat.


[deleted]

Yes! I think it is an aspect of our collective or individual shadows, and love is the way - no matter how scary and challenging it is to embrace what seems like an evil entity trying to take possession of your soul. It took me ten years of horrific sleep paralysis to reach this realization. My intuition kept insisting that this “demon” was none other than me. After years of resisting, I decided to face my fear and embrace it with love. I wrestled to get on top of this terrifying reptilian-like creature and said, “I am going to hug you and love you. I am not scared of you anymore.” I became courageous while it became fearful and resistant. After a brief battle, I felt its suffocating and heavy energy release its grip and shift into a gentle warmth, merging with my being and dissolving within me. That was over ten years ago, and it never came back. I believe that I experienced a reunification with a part of myself I had neglected throughout my 20s. I was not in a good place when my sleep paralysis was at its peak. After that experience, my life changed in many positive ways.


supahstella

My question is why did you not talk about it? I saw something and I couldn’t shut up. The story is crazy. If we are all energy then maybe something was in our energy wave or plane? Very interesting though. Thanks for posting.


AdministrationLost58

A few weeks ago I was walking around my apartment while very sleepy. The lights were off mostly with only a faint light coming from somewhere. I looked up and on the ceiling saw like a black mass with tendrils that were almost octopus like, just sort of moving around. I didn't really react until the next day when I realised I had seen something. So weird. Just all black though, no other colours


daydavi

This always happens to me I hate it!


warpwizard

Probably a minor etheric entity. There seems to be a whole mono-color etheric ecosystem all around us, if only we had eyes to see. Very sleepy with only faint light...perfect conditions for seeing the Etheric.


megsbennettfit

I wonder if cats and dogs can see them as well as other animals. They seem to react to things we can’t see. Wish evolution would give us that ability to see more things but then it might be on purpose that we can’t.


warpwizard

Yep, they seem to be able to, though perhaps not all of them, just like with humans. A friend of mine has astral projected and his cat could definitely see him. Humans can see the Etheric, but it takes practice, because since childhood we have been encouraged to only see the physical. The only time most people get a glimpse is when they are going to sleep or waking from sleep, or in unusual situations like having to stay up all night in an unfamiliar place.


ayyy_miiiiii

Thailand is known to have a lot of paranormal activities like so bc of their religion/ culture I believe


Culbal

They build mini house (like boxmail) for spirits front of new house. It's not for nothing because ghost, spirits or djinn are strong other there. I said that by experiences.


julinaonred

Oh no dont say that. I have this decorative house shaped doll house up on a high shelf and my 4 year old said he sees little legs running around inside..


angelheaded--hipster

Leave offerings at the doll house. Maybe it’s become a spirit house. Many people leave offerings like sodas, Red Bull, at the spirit houses in Thailand. It is to appease the bad spirits that might live in there so they don’t become angry.


Culbal

That's give me goosebump really ! Childrens are really good for see "things" I wonder why do we lose this ability with age (maybe for keep our sanety lol)


julinaonred

Cos we got no time for that lol


warpwizard

They do similar things in Japan. It's not a bad idea, practically speaking. If I have to have a Djinn on my premises, I'd rather it be living in a box in my front yard than inside my actual human home.

Shared hallucination


RogerTheRude

Where do you get off just assuming people take drugs if they have a paranormal experience?


Voiceofthemachines

Because it’s a drug trip not a paranormal experience based off my own personal experience. That’s how.


Maximum-Barracuda-27

all our downvotes suggest we offended people somehow lol I said I know from \*personal experience\* (w my husband). It's a f-ing thing. People should Google it lol


BboyStatic

I think people are so detached from life, that they either need to, or want to live in a magical world not grounded in reality. Instead of getting out and enjoying the world around them, they live in this world of TV and Internet where stories make life more exciting. The biggest piece to this entire story is that they waited years to discuss it, so the Mandela Effect is a very good explanation for something that could have been completely mundane. As soon as they started discussing this ( years later ), when one of them goes into explaining their memories, the second person can easily adopt the other perspective because at this point the memories are so clouded, most of the experiences they had are snippets.


Maximum-Barracuda-27

>hen one of them goes into explaining their memories, the second person can easily adopt the other perspective because at this point the memories are so clouded, Bingo. But that's not creepy enough so... lol


Voiceofthemachines

I know right?!!! It’s based off my own personal experience and they take it personal? People are crazy.


Maximum-Barracuda-27

It's not spooky enough I guess lol But in my experience it scared the ever living shit out of us, so...


Voiceofthemachines

Same here it wasn’t planned and it was with a girlfriend


Maroun265

That’s not possible? If more than one person sees something, it’s real...


Voiceofthemachines

Never said it wasn’t real but definitely a hallucination from drugs


Danizada

That’s a huge assumption. OP would’ve definitely mentioned taking drugs before this experience


Voiceofthemachines

Not if the drugs were given without consent. Are we new?


Danizada

No. Do you mean something like shared psychotic disorder? I can’t find any sources that say any drugs or hallucinogens are involved in that phenomenon.


Voiceofthemachines

It’s a Folie à Deux caused by a substance-induced psychotic disorder: This condition is caused by the use of or withdrawal from drugs, such as hallucinogens and crack cocaine, that cause hallucinations, delusions, or confused speech.


Maximum-Barracuda-27

That's my theory as well. Know from personal experience.


tuchesuavae

How do you share an hallucination by both seeing it isn't it. Ot a hallucination?


Voiceofthemachines

Same. Just a delayed reaction. Maybe they were drugged earlier or ate something foreign.


Maximum-Barracuda-27

Bingo


tuchesuavae

How would that cause the exact same visual and sensory experience? Even with hyperthermia, or carbon monoxide poison, ther experience of people in the same room are different.


Voiceofthemachines

But not with drugs. It happens because I’ve experienced it with many different people on different psychedelics


tuchesuavae

Not true a hallucination is singular to the individual. Now drugs do open you up to "the paranormal so what you saw was not a hallucination, but a shared experience you could all witness, being made susceptible to beings of thales plane via drugs.


Voiceofthemachines

No it’s not do some more research

My husband and I had a similar experience. One night, I woke up and looked toward our bathroom (we always kept the light on as a nightlight) when I noticed a large black mass floating in the upper corner of the bedroom. I kept blinking and rubbing my eyes trying to make what I saw make sense. It floated down about halfway down the wall and then disappeared. The next afternoon when my husband came home (he used to work very early in the morning and would return around 2 p.m.) I told him what I saw and he said he saw the same thing when he was waking up to get ready for work. It freaked him out and he stayed in bed under the covers until it went away. We don't know what it was but we had a few strange experiences in that house.


X_gamergirl_xX

Giggled at your husband just hiding under the covers instead of waking you lol. If he's like mine though, he's try to rationalize or pretend it didn't even happen until I'd bring it up. I've had a similar black mass experience but it covered almost an entire wall at my old apartments


BeaLaBruja

Ha! He was scared and was hoping it'd go away. Lol!!!


warpwizard

Probably a Djinn living in your attic, basement or spare room/closet.


tuchesuavae

... so he just left you there knowing that happened? Wth?


BeaLaBruja

I have experiences all the time and he knows I'm not shaken by them. He is the one who is weirded out by them and besides, he didn't want to wake me up. It's really no big deal to me if it's not being aggressive. 😊


tuchesuavae

Gotcha


scribblette

He probably thought he was having a weird waking dream or hallucination. If you’re not usually seeing things like this, most people will try to rationalize it.

Nicely done 😂

Cheesy but I'm down. 🤣🤣🤣


gytalf2000

Wow! Scary! I have no idea what you saw, though...


Laundrette

Just wanted to say this is truly the most terrifying thing I’ve read on this subReddit.


earthboundmissfit

Sounds like a possible alien or interdimensional.


smf242424

That's exactly what I thought


_Sub_Atomic_

Entity colors: Orange, is anger. Red, is rage. It was feeding on your fear, a negative entity from semi-physical reality was in physical reality. The energy I'm reading from you and others and from the spacetime location, a vortex portal is open and a previous guest inadvertently opened said vortex. It's got to be closed and the negative entity banished; it's something serious. What you encountered isn't a spirit. Entities are alive in their respective realms and occasionally enter our realm and reality through open portals.


warpwizard

It's a Djinn. Standard appearance is a black mass, pillar of smoke etc. Often with "red glowing eyes", matching the glowing red energy you saw. You saw it because you were in the right place at the right time, and you were in a liminal state, meaning a "between" state, because you were travelers at the time as well as sleeping in a strange place. They inhabit the Etheric Layer of reality, which is a layer your awareness passes through when you sleep, typically when you are mostly or totally unconscious. If you happen to be awake during this period, you experience "sleep paralysis" and see stuff, like Djinn and other etheric entities. In summary you saw a fairly common entity, under the typical circumstances. Nothing too be too concerned about, unless it has followed you home or something.


X_gamergirl_xX

I've had 3 encounters with the a black mass/smoke face/red eyed being things. Once at 15, another time at 19, then again at 29. None were good expeirnces. I'm 30 now, had no idea until your comment they were djinn. Though I've wondered. Once this last year I also encountered more than one at once with yellow/red eyes. Are these the same types of entities or different? I can literally never find anything on the yellow eyes through normal internet searches like red.


warpwizard

Interesting. Red eyes seem to be very very common. Perhaps that correlates with emotion, as both the lore, my own research and your negative experiences conclude that most Djinn do not like humans. By yellow/red do you mean an inbetween color, or that you encountered multiple Djinn (black figures) some with red and some with yellow eyes?


JodieRebecca92

When I was a kid I once saw a black silhouette of a man's figure standing sideways on with its head facing me but slightly bowed. It had glowing red eyes and we started at one another for about twenty seconds before I started to back away as fast as I could. I started to power walk / jog away but every time I looked over my shoulder it was still there untill I turned a corner and finally it was out of sight. I still remember it so clearly till this day. It was essentially a black mass shaped like a person but it had glowing red eyes and it stared at me for a while.


warpwizard

Yep, that's a Djinn. Pretty standard appearance. It's easier to see that sort of thing as a kid, because ours minds haven't yet become so hard-locked on the physical. Did you get any sense of emotion from it or presence?


feline-a-holic

That’s interesting. I had a sleep paralysis where a woman (I think) showed up and started screaming. Is that a djinn? Or something entirely different?


warpwizard

Probably an Etheric Corpse. They and Djinn are the most common entities that people encounter. An Etheric Corpse is what people would typically call a "ghost". It's the Etheric Body of a formerly living person. The normal process is that the Etheric Body separates at physical death, hangs around for a while, a few years at most and then breaks down and dissipates, the "second death", freeing the higher Bodies to go on to higher planes. In a minority of cases, the person refuses to give up their Etheric Body and instead tries to linger. This results in what many traditions refer to as a "hungry ghost", meaning an Etheric Corpse that is desperately attempting to acquire Etheric Energy to stay "alive". Thus we have the "night hag" or "night mare" which sits on your chest at night, and all the other variations involving energy drain, oppression, and usually the sight of a corpse-like entity.

I stayed one night in a hotel in Phuket - can't remember the name. It was a ground floor room with a pool outside. I was with a friend who was asleep. All of a sudden I felt absolutely terrified for no reason. The bathroom was the worst as I couldn't even enter it. The fear and revulsion was so bad I needed a pee and I did it in a bottle rather than enter that room. I was awake the whole night and the air in the room was thick and heavy filled with static. I felt as though I was choking with a sense of horrible fear. The next day I checked the bathroom and couldn't believe it was the same room.I threw my stuff in a bag and waited outside for my friend to wake up so we could check out. Nothing could have forced me to spend one more minute in that room.


power78

Carbon monoxide poisoning?


glory_holelujah

Sounds like infrasound.


jajac66

So why didn't my friend feel anything ?


glory_holelujah

They were asleep?


Kmin78

Jeez, don’t even want to think what horrors must have taken place in that room…


Midas_7

Does this happen often to you?


jajac66

No not really. I have seen a couple of spirits over the years. I also get the odd feeling like goosebumps or a dislike of a strange place or person. However that night was on a totally different scale.


CurrentAir8666

I know where I’m never going on vacation!


MichaelMurphy311

I literally said “I’m never fuckin’ going to Thailand!” Fuck that with a stick kind sirs, and lasses


AES526

Same


sarariley2017

This is wild. I think it is fairly normal for people with shared paranormal experiences to not talk about it. One of the houses we lived in had some serious demonic oppression when I was a teenager. We all had crazy experiences, and I was the only one who ever talked about it, and it was only one time when it got bad enough. We only talked about it for a few minutes then never spoke of it again. As soon as we moved into the new house it felt like a weight had been lifted off of us, and we all started talking about our experiences and how terrible we felt. It was weird how 2 years went by without us saying anything, and as soon as we left the house we all opened up.


scribblette

One of my friends grew up in a big family and they lived in a house with lots of activity. Most of her siblings won’t really acknowledge it. When she tells the stories in front of her mom, her mom just sort of laughs it off but she doesn’t deny that they happened. That would drive me crazy, everyone pretending like they didn’t see anything or just refusing to discuss it!


CurrentAir8666

I think people are really good at fooling themselves into thinking that if they ignore something it might just go away. They are more afraid of speaking about things, confronting them. It feels like it makes it too real. In my observances, this goes for mundane unpleasant interpersonal things like abuse, dementia or alcoholism, as well as paranormal things. It’s amazing what people will not talk about.


Right_Selection6187

I agree, I believe most of the time people that share experiences like this are afraid to talk about it for several different reasons. They think the other people may not believe them or say they do just to make that person feel better, or if they talk about it will feed off of that n get worse or like u said it then makes it real n harder to convince themselves out was a dream or a piece of under cooked potato.


Scary-Cow2976

Yea I hear similar stories to this often. An old coworker said he lived in a home where it was later revealed to have been built on a burial site(I am indigenous, sacred sites are not a good idea to build over like.. seriously) Anyway he said some of the shit they all experienced was wild but they never talk about it


Non_Skeptical_Scully

Thailand has a long history with what are called “hungry ghosts”. Google hungry ghosts and Thailand to see if that is possibly what you witnessed.


lildancho

Sounds a little like something you'd see when tripping on Benadryl


ThePilgrimK

So you both basically encountered a Lovecraftian horror and the next morning you were like "that was strange huh" and went on with your day. You must be pretty hardcore.


warpwizard

That's actually very typical. Some call it the "paranormal effect". You wake up, see something horrifying in your room, go "huh" and go right back to sleep. Or you have a truly odd experience with some other people and you all spontaneously won't or can't talk about it. Probably something to do with your unconscious mind wanting to deny what happened.


imissedherbrightside

This comment hits different man.. I had sleep paralysis, at least I think when I was 7 years old, or around that age. I woke up, and a huge lump of weight was at the end of my bed, and I saw a dark black figure of a man on the end of my bed. I don’t remember if I was scared, I was kind of just like, what the fuck? I don’t remember anything after that like OP said, I just woke up. Also is what I experienced a common sleep paralysis experience? I have never had sleep paralysis since


warpwizard

Seeing a "dark figure" of some sort and feeling like there is weight on the bed when nothing should be there are fairly common paranormal experiences, which I would classify sleep paralysis experiences under. A lot of people, including me and you, seem to have a startling experience as a child being woken from sleep by something odd. In my case it was a bunch of weird, vibrating, oddly-moving doll-sized creatures being in my room....until I woke up again and there was nothing there.


The_LastWolfgangg

Idk if it's the same thing but I've seen a building (curch) vibrating once when I was sleep walking. i only know I was sleep walking because my parents caught me outside. Strangest thing is that I could hear instruments playing inside as if there was a service going on. this type of vibration was weird though almost as if it (the church) was having a hard time vibrating into reality. my sleep walking phase was so strange because it was like I was conscious of what was happening but it seemed more like a movie playing out and i was just along for the ride


warpwizard

Right, you were disassociated. What that does is it lets you access more of your layers than normal, because you have allowed them to separate. You were seeing the Etheric, the vibrating is the giveaway. The little entities I once saw upon waking in my bedroom were vibrating that way, buzzing. Neat that you could hear the instruments. That's because Time functions differently on different dimensional layers, so when perceiving the Etheric you often percieve the Past.


The_LastWolfgangg

Man the "Buzzing" description you gave is spot on. you're the first person I have come across that has described or seen something similar to myself. pretty dam cool in my opinion! it's a shame I haven't seen anything like that since. except I did have an intense trip on mushrooms that either had me tripping balls, or it allowed me to see energy flowing out from plants.


warpwizard

Others have seen and noticed similar, but you have to dig through a lot of books to find the various anecdotes. Yeah, shrooms are great for seeing energy. On a nice summer day on shrooms I saw a line of golden light connecting each blade of grass to the Sun. I could see how each blade strove with all its might to stand tall so that it could be in alignment with that line of energy. It was very cool. :)


WildBeast737

I remember being attacked by a weird creature that wasn't shadowy but orange and hairy with a huge mouth and no other facial features, think a cross of Wild Mutt from Ben 10 and Zoe from Sesame Street. It was only about three feet tall, and I was only two or three years old at the time. I was trying to go to sleep when I looked down towards my closet near the foot of my bed, and saw it buried in clothes in a laundry basket. I had a strange compulsion to say, "Kiki," and so being a toddler, I did. This strange creature proceeded to leap out of the clothes and attack me, punching me then shoving me into a wall repeatedly while I punched it back. My mom was in the living room watching a movie at the time, my little brother was already asleep, and my father wasn't home because he worked as a conductor at the time. I didn't scream until it gripped my right wrist and elbow with both hands, opened its gaping, toothy maw, and started pulling me in to take a large bite. Keep in mind, this thing had no eyes, no nose, no ears, just massive chompers inside a really wide mouth and fuzzy orange fur. As soon as I started screaming it didn't just disappear, it ran and dove back into the laundry basket as my mom entered the doorway. My arm was spared, and my mother and I searched that hamper together and didn't find a sign of anything. I have more stories from my childhood, like my mother saying my brother and I both reported a strange man in the corner in a trench coat who was silently watching us and wouldn't leave until she used the Lord's name.


warpwizard

Interesting. An energy lifeform ie "spirit" of some sort. If you had been older and had more of an abstract perception you probably would have seen it as an orange glow of light. Not sure about the man in the corner, probably just the spirit of a dead guy. It isn't necessarily about the Lord's name so much as the intent behind using it. Any sort of strongly focused intent can force a spirit to leave your presence.


WildBeast737

Sometimes I wonder. I think we have some degree of power on our own, our faith can do incredible things. However, I still think there is a God and higher dimensional entities that help us or do things. What's very intriguing to me, is if you take concepts from the Bible and apply them more abstractly. Jesus was capable of manipulating reality itself and a woman healed herself through her faith when she touched the robe of Jesus. Revelation speaks of the devil as a great red dragon who has evil frog-like "spirits" who come and perform signs and gather the nations of men to war against God. If we take that as reptilian aliens and the grays that are supposedly allied with them according to ufo/alien researchers, then this takes quite the interesting spin now doesn't it?


annie_68164

Have you ever listened to Joe Jordan of Alien Resistance? He has a convincing argument that aliens and hauntings come from the same source- Satan. He came across hundreds of accounts where people called out to Jesus during an abduction attempt and the beings disappeared. I thought it was interesting.
