Strange Light


I'd like to share my experience I had a few years back. I don't think this is anything too extraordinary and could be proved to be something simple, but I'd like to hear some advice.

It started when I went to bed one night, I was about 10. Nothing strange or different had occurred that day, but something weird happened that night.

I woke up sometime during the night as I thought I had seen a bright white light. (I am a light sleeper.) I opened my eyes to see what was there and I seen a bright white flashing light hovering in the middle of my room. I looked behind me to see if there was something producing the light in front of me, but all there was behind me was my poster hanging on my wall. At first I thought it could of just been a light from outside, but I looked up and my blinds were shut tight with no light seeping through. I then thought it could have been my laptop which may have been lying on my floor. (When my laptop is charging, there is a light that flashes on it.) I thought nothing of it and fell back asleep.

However, the next morning when I woke up, to my surprise my laptop was not in my room, but had been sitting in my brother's room all night. At first I thought I could just be imagining it, but during the day I realised that I had definitely seen something that night.

The light had a sort of blurry human figure. You may think this sounds silly as it is coming from a 13-year-old, but I'm positive I seen something that night and I would appreciate it if someone would reply to this with some information on what it could be; paranormal or not.

Thanks x

Thanks for the comments, yes this was a one off and it has never happened since. However, there has been a few different strange things going on, nothing big, but still pretty strange. I will try and put in another story about them.

hi pippa, it could have been anything, even your own mind. Have to say though the fact that you say you automaticly looked around for something that could be causing the light and found nothing could mean that yes you did have someone popping by to look in on you.
Was this a one off?
Or has it happened since?
Good post thanks for adding

Hi Pippa!

Isn't it interesting to see how our concious mind tries to give all possible explanations that it is aware of when something unusual happens?

Experiences like these make me wonder, have we really been able to understand the human brain completely?

The answer is definately a NO! 😲

Hi Pippa! I posted a story that's kind of similar to yours. I'm not sure what it was either, but I did make a guess as to what I THOUGHT it was. My story is called "Forever at Camp". Check it out and see what you think.
