We moved to Idaho from Hawaii and ultimately moved into an older 3rd floor apartment (2 BR, 1 BA) It had a great view of a creek and a river beyond that out the back windows. We were out looking, and found an amazing view lot across town, which we ended up purchasing. We were very happy and looking for a builder. I found a low paying job and we were just living and enjoying the bike paths and parks along the river's greenbelt.
One early morning, I was laying awake, as most mornings between 2:00 to 3:30 a.m. I was looking at the clock, and had to lie still because if I wake our Yorkie, he will bolt to end of bed and start biting my feet while barking and would wake my wife (little jerk). Anyway, we had a large King bed in a small room, so the door was very close to the end of the bed and to the right of my feet. The door is open and against the far wall we have little plug-in lights, so the living room and this doorway was kind of lit up. There was a flood light below our bedroom window outside, with slight light coming from sides of curtains above our head board.
I usually try to fall back to sleep, counting marbles, ducks, salmon, and calming things. I don't count sheep and I don't want to get a song stuck in my head. I was laying on my right side looking at the door opening and saw what looked like a very small Orb come around the door jamb at the doorknob area. It was moving very slowly and was about the size of a golf ball, about 6 feet from my head now, coming along the wall towards my head. Not really thinking, just watching it. It wasn't bright, like Orbs I have caught on my camera or when filming. It was almost a vanilla color (looked old?) less than 3 feet away against wall in front of my face now. I did not move and watched it. It looked dull in a small area top front of the Orb, like it was missing some of its shine (glitter, damaged?), and I watched it go past my head heading to the corner.
After that, I was heavy in thought and started questioning my sanity and started trying to debunk it - on the 3rd floor, could be car lights? But Orb was lower than the window and curtains were closed. Eye booger floating sideways? (Both eyes? Probably not). Would it have been brighter if room was darker? Did my imagination conjure this thing up? Half my life, I have been a very early riser and have never seen a little orb.
I can't honestly say how long I laid there - many minutes? - when all of a sudden my wife started stammering, along with heavy breathing. She was in a high-pitched verbal fight and her words were not understandable. Sounded like she was in trouble, and she yelled something high-pitched, stuttering and rambling. I yelled her name while rolling over to her to grab her and shake her awake. She tells me that a man was chasing her as a child and he was not a good man, and he was very scary. By the time she awoke later that morning, she had forgotten most of it. I found it strange that she had a nightmare within minutes of my seeing the Orb, and the timing of both had me wondering about Orbs getting in and being a part of our dreams.
In my present home, at the beginning of 2021, I had a crazy dream of an approximately 6" Orb of a dark-haired man (40ish?) his face filled the whole orb that was behind me at head level, chasing me from my garage into our laundry room and into the hallway landing, then into our bedroom (a strait shot) and telling me all the while to hurt (like hit) my wife. I was yelling at him NO, NO, I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT. I woke my wife and myself up from yelling at it. WTH?!
Thanks for reading. Good Luck out there. (Edited by Wife) Please only positive feedback.
