This account of “childhood nightmares” was submitted to us by the sibling of a woman who shares numerous characteristics and experiences with known ‘alien’ abductees although both are unsure if an abduction/s have in fact taken place. Her experience is included here for your interest only. Both women grew up in the 1960-70’s in the province of Ontario.
We often hear that children have great imaginations, after all they exist in a world where fantasy far outweighs reality. Childhood is a time of exploration, dreams, and fears. Some of our greatest accomplishments began as we were children and as adults it is easy for us to take for granted the fear a child has about the ghost-in-the-closet or the monster under her bed. The “bogey man” is a catchall term for what scares our children the most; a strange presence ready to uproot us from our loving families.
Twenty-five years later, I remember my “bogey man” and I believe he may have been an alien.
My “bogey man” came to me in my dreams while I was unconscious to the outside world. He was nothing like anything I had seen on television, in movies, or comic books and that is one reason I feel comfortable with the word alien to describe him. Picture a character about 7ft tall, blackish-brown, paper thin, gangly, with a head that was shaped like an inverted triangle.
I believe my dreams began around the time I was four and always had the same theme. The “bogey man” would capture and zombify my father and sister as my mother and I helplessly watched from behind a large bush outside of our family’s home. Never being caught myself, I still remember the intense fear of losing my sister and father to the alien. The “bogey man” was quite powerful and could maneuver himself through cracks in the door, but my mother and I were never caught.
When I would relate these dreams to my parents I can only guess they chalked them up to childhood nightmares. As an adult I have related these dreams to others and because of experiences that my sister has gone through believe that I may in fact have been a witness to a very real abduction. If that is the case then in all likelihood I will never really know.
My “bogey man” dreams abruptly ended at age six, which coincided with a residential move, but I was afraid of him for years afterwards and can still picture him in my mind this many years later.
