I always think back on this moment in my life and although I am older now I still strain to find the meaning of my experience.
I was 12 years old and I often went to my friends house down the street. We took the back alley to each other's houses and between us was a cemetery that we were very used to walking through. On a regular night of playing at her house I decided it was time to go home because it was only getting darker and even though I thought I was tough at 12, I was actually scared of walking by myself in the dark. My friend walked me halfway like usual which meant that we usually said our goodbyes in the middle of the cemetery.
We headed out the sliding doors in the back of her house and headed for the alley that connected to the cemetery. We were talking and everything seemed completely normal. We got two steps into the cemeteries grass and we both stopped dead in our tracks and starred above us. Nothing was said to each other and I don't remember hearing anything at all, it seemed like everything just fell silent. Above our heads about 5 feet there were 2 orbs, possibly the size of beach balls. These balls began to shine bright (so bright you almost had to look away) and then it would dim.
This happened for almost 2 minutes, you would of thought that we would of taken off running but I couldn't move. I remember being so frightened that my legs just did not work for a few minutes. All of a sudden the orbs started flashing between bright and dim at a faster pace and the faster it got the more scared we became. We finally took off running back to her house where we discussed what we saw and made sure neither of us had lost our minds. We confirmed the same story and we both just never understood why this had happened.
I called my mom and told her what happened, she laughed and picked me up.
I don't feel that it was there to hurt us but to scare us to turn around and go back. In my heart I think it was a warning, perhaps danger could of been up ahead and something stopped us in our tracks and warned us to go in the opposite direction. The orbs only started going crazy with flashes when we wouldn't move, almost like it was saying get out of here and leave now.
I think about this situation sometimes and finally decided to let my story out because I do not care what anyone says, mysterious things are out there and we only understand half, if not less, of what is around us.
