I am 44 years old. When I was about 4 or 5 years old I had an experience that I have tried to make sense of ever since. I had just gone to bed on a summer's night. I know it was summer because it was still light outside, probably about 8:30 p.m.
I had not been in bed long and I looked up to the the window above and to the left of my bed. I saw two figures in dark hooded robes. I could not see faces... Just blackness. Then the figures (one or both - I'm not sure) spit on me. I felt totally paralyzed. I didn't know what else to do, but as crazy as this may sound, I tried to spit back at the figures. At that point they disappeared.
I told my parents about it, but they insisted it was a bad dream. So I tried to convince myself that it must have been a nightmare for most of my life.
However, about 27 years later my pastor and I were having lunch and somehow the topic turned to the "world of darkness," for lack of a more handy term. So I told him about my experience, and he pointed out some things that lead me to believe this was more than a dream.
First, this would have occurred around 1967-1968. It wasn't like it is today with all of the fantastic scary movies. In fact, TV was rather wholesome. It was unlikely that I saw something on TV that foreshadowed this and came out in a dream.
Second, people commonly report seeing hooded demons. How would I have known that at that age?
Third, in reference to spitting, my pastor said this is a very specific demonic activity, however he didn't know the meaning of it.
If anyone knows what the spitting was all about, I would appreciate your feedback.
