I am desperate for answers, I hope someone out there can give me some feedback on their thoughts of my event. This is the first time I have visited a site like this as I have been trying to find a similar story or some photos perhaps. Here's what happened:
A couple of nights ago my mother and I were alone talking in my lounge room. She was on the couch which is seated against a white colored wall. I was sitting opposite her and, as I was listening to her, I kept noticing a dark smoky ribbon-like shadow moving across the wall from the center of the wall to the left. This happened several times, until I asked my mum to come and sit next to me and watch the wall, as stupid as it sounds she did as I suggested. We both sat next to each other watching the wall and I wasn't crazy after all, she too saw this shadow moving across the wall. It then began moving across the entire length of the wall, then later in the opposite direction (from left to right). This continued to happen over a 2 1/2 hours period, with the shadow changing direction, speed and shape. Sometimes it seemed like a crescent / moon shape. Other times it looked like a closed hand turned to the side. The other thing is that occasionally we would smell some sort of strange, off-putting smell around us, then the smell would just disappear. I was terrified and frozen and began to cry, my mum was assuring me that it wasn't a bad thing and that I shouldn't be scared. I then asked her why it wouldn't go away / stop, considering how freaked out I was getting. (No I was not drinking and not on drugs).
Are my mother and I just both mad? Anyone with a similar story or information I would so appreciate hearing from you.
