This has happened around 4 times that I can remember. It's been when I'm drifting in and out of sleep, but sometimes I hallucinate when drifting and it's always been the same thing. It looks like a drone camera flying around my room's ceiling at night, so at first I think someone's spying on me until I quickly realize that it's actually not there.
Has anybody else experienced this?
Yeah that's sleep paralysis. I've had them several times and theyre the cause of all the alien abduction stories. They also interestingly have cultural similarities, where different cultures experience different hallucinations. Like, americans dream of aliens and government and tech and stuff like that and asians tend to dream about this old witch with long black hair, and south americans dream of animal/monsters.
But for me, first time was hearing a noise and opening my eyes to look at my window but i couldnt see very clearly so i squinted a bit and saw a shadow on the other side, suddenly the window opened and a large figure crawled in through the window and then i woke up lol.
Second time, I was with my girlfriend in my parents house when she was away on vacation and we were sleeping in the master bedroom that my parents dont sleep in because i dunno, they just dont like it. Anyway, I see this figure above the bed just hovering there and it starts to lower down and also get bigger, but I'm like "you're not there, if i believe you're not there, you're not". Then it started to go away, and then I doubted myself and suddenly it was back and bigger than ever and lowered into the bed. And I woke up. At the exact same time, my gf wakes up and was like, "i couldn't breathe i felt like something was crushing me". Definitely not a real ghost experience but very creepy event regardless.
