This experience occurred when I was between the age of 5 and 7 years old. I am now 25. I am a logical minded person and don't know what to think about what happened. However I am completely certain that I was not dreaming.
When I was a kid, I grew up in a house in the town of Minden, Louisiana. This house had no special history to my current knowledge. My older sister had just moved into her own room, from sharing a room with me. My room was almost in the center of the house.
My room had wooden bunk beds up against one wall (center wall of the house), two windows on the opposite wall of the beds, a small foyer with two steps leading to the rear end of the house (parents room), and opposite to that wall was a door to my closet and a door into the hallway.
It was in the middle of the night and I was sound asleep on the bottom bunk bed since the ladder that kept me from rolling off the top had a broken hook.
For no reason I awoke and sat up in my bed. In a matter of a few seconds, my vision became clearer. As my eyes adjusted I realized, that there were white figures surrounding my bed. These figures looked to have a plasma look to them. I could see through them, but could not make out any detailed features about them. Just heads and shoulders and torso. Their shoulders were at the height of mine as I sat up, as if thy were adults kneeling. The figured had no space between them and even though there was no space between my bed and the wall, the figures were all the way around the bed.
I didn't feel threatened by the figures and they weren't performing any actions, but I was terrified. I attempted to scream for my parents to come to my rescue, but no sound would come from my attempt. So, I got up and ran through the figures, down the two steps and tried to open my parents door. It was locked and I was so frightened that I used my hip to break the cheap door to gain access.
To this day, I haven't been able to logically explain what they were. My sister has had her experiences in that house and I almost remember my mother bringing in a preacher from our church into all the rooms of the house (Brother Barnes).
What do you think these figures were?
