Throughout history and most of the different cultures, tales of monsters, beasts, demons, spirits, etc. have been depicted mingling with humans since the beginning of time.
From the Australian aboriginals’ legend of the Rainbow Serpent, and the serpent tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden (both of a reptilian nature… interesting), to fantastic accounts of urban legend-like creatures: bigfoot, Baba Yaga, kappa, banshee, Krampus, fallen angels, etc.
And myths and legends of the “boogeyman” have been around for thousands of years. Could there be any truth to these claims? Or were they simply stories meant to keep children in line?
Whatever the true scenario behind these mysteries, the fact that our consciousness has not yet fully tapped into our inherent potential, leaves substantial room for growth and development into our own senses and awareness. (That’s, however, if we’re ready to see the unseen…)
Here is a look at 6 fascinating cases of how people have encountered supernatural beings:
1. Sleep Paralysis
Many people experience what is known as “sleep paralysis” – waking up to immobility and the sensation of pressure on their chest; complete with horrifying images of different entities, including but not limited to: demons, hags, ghosts, aliens, disfigured creatures, etc.
But what exactly is sleep paralysis?
Some scientific data attributes this phenomena to the REM cycle that helps prevent one from acting out their dreams in their sleep.
Of course, that’s just one of the definitions. Apparently, even in the scientific community, there is disagreement on whether sleep paralysis is a naturally occurring state, or a “sleep disorder”.
“All of these symptoms describe sleep paralysis, a sleep disorder (or symptom of a sleep disorder) that temporarily alters a person’s mobility, perception, thinking, and emotional state during the transition between sleeping and waking.” –Why Sleep Paralysis Happens (and How to Prevent It)
Yet, the same author also acknowledges that everyone experiences the paralysis part during sleep: “You’re typically not aware of it, but the “paralysis” part of sleep paralysis actually happens every night when you sleep during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.“
Another study proposes stress and disturbed sleep could be the culprit: “It could be that stress causes sleep paralysis, but equally that sleep paralysis leads to stress,” Gregory said. “We couldn’t really tease apart cause and effect.” Future long-term studies will help clarify what comes first: sleep problems or anxiety, she added.” – Sleep Paralysis Is Linked to Stress (and Supernatural Beliefs) while admitting that stress could actually be the result of the sleep paralysis experiences, instead of the other way around.
And yet others state it is a completely naturally occurring phenomena that can happen to anyone and everyone depending on the sleeper’s conditions and conscious ability.
If you wake up during this experience, most people relate a terrifying account of being suffocated, can’t move, can’t speak, and a not-so benevolent presence in the room. This has been explained away as a hallucination or hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery that accompanies these senses due to our states of vulnerability and reasoning through these emotions.
However, could it be that the state between wakefulness and sleep actually allows us to get a glimpse into this other, hidden astral plane? Our minds at that point are not completely tuned into the physical aspect of our surroundings yet, so this may open the door for us to perceive other things that we normally wouldn’t during our full, waking hours.
2. Out of Body Experiences / Astral Projection
Speaking of the astral plane, I bring it up because the knowledge of this existence is becoming more widespread; however, when I was younger, the topic was still taboo and not as well-known as it is today. Now, it’s almost mainstream and common knowledge that this is a real phenomena.
Scientists, doctors and researchers are also interested in studying this topic – whether it’s a neurological and/or conscious-related phenomena or not (which begs the question “What is consciousness?”):
And while you can’t trust certain organizations (including the science community – no offense to anyone in this field)… even the CIA has admitted to participating in astral projection/remote viewing studies:
Again, I want to reiterate… you can’t trust certain organizations… so please take everything from this industry with a grain of salt.
With that being said, due to my own out of body experiences, and the research I’ve conducted on this topic, I cannot simply dismiss this possibility through “scientific reasoning”. After all, there are just some things that science has not yet been able to measure and/or study. Does it mean it doesn’t exist?
Of course not. Just that science doesn’t have the technology yet to address these issues. (And perhaps we give science too much credit and the point of the metaphysics is it was never meant to be measured to begin with. Which ties back into the spiritual/faith ideology.)
Robert Monroe (who worked with the CIA) is widely considered the pioneer into the study of astral projection, and even coined the term “loosh”, referring to energy of the beings living on the planet and the entities that supposedly feed off of this energy. It is not a positive account.
For me, personally, I have had two rather disturbing experiences with a different entity; out of about 30 (that I can recall). One of them I could actually bypass as perhaps a hypnopompic hallucination. I was experiencing vibrations to attempt an obe, but then I could hear a man’s voice, chanting – along with sinister-sounding children giggling in the background. It was truly something straight out of a horror movie. I shook myself out of this vibrational state and completely woke up.
The other experience, I was actually not even attempting an obe. I woke up already feeling the vibrations and along with that, could sense that something was in the room with me. Keep in mind, I do not always feel another presence. As a matter of fact, most of the time I do not. However, this was a one-of-a-kind experience. As I felt that there was a different entity with me, I tried to shake the feeling off and go back to sleep. Trying to attribute it to just my imagination. But before I knew it, I felt my ankle (my astral ankle) being grabbed by this entity, and trying to drag me out of my body. I tried to cling on to my physical body because I didn’t want to leave and I had no idea what this force was.
It was absolutely terrifying and this, along with the chanting/giggling experience above, made me resolve to stop these out of body explorations altogether. (I had not yet at this point studied enough to train myself under these conditions and raise my vibrations higher – and pray – I know some people will scoff at this idea, but there is a reason that Jesus Christ is so hated by certain immoral establishments…)
A few years after this experience, I came across a testimony from a man named John Ramirez, self-described as an ex-satanist. His claim is that he used to be a high priest, and after trying to renounce the satanic realm, he relays a harrowing account:
@10:20 ” – just feel someone’s hands just grab me by my throat and try to pick me up off the bed and try to rip my body – rip my soul out of my body. Sometimes they grab me by my feet and the bed would shake – “
I cannot testify as to this gentleman’s veracity, but the account he told hits home with me, since it is eerily similar to what I encountered during my obe/vibrational state. I also recall Mr. Ramirez saying that he also engaged in pulling people out of their astral body as a way of terrifying them, but I cannot find this account at the moment. If I find it, I will make sure to add it here. He does, however, say this in the same video: “At the age of 13 I was astral projecting, my body, I would leave my body home and go into regions, go into spirit realms, and [spread curses]” – @19:10
3. Children / Animals Sense
Maybe because their perceptions aren’t yet altered by the indoctrination of society around them, really small children seem to have an innate ability to see entities and strange beings that aren’t generally accepted by the normal population.
Some fascinating (although purely anecdotal), fun and creepy accounts of children seeing ghosts:
What’s really interesting about children claiming to see these presences, is it usually happens when they first start learning how to talk (they have probably been seeing ghosts ever since they were an infant, but couldn’t express themselves until learning how to speak), and then this ability (if that’s what it is) seems to fade as they get older.
Is it a matter of simply their imagination going wild? If that’s the case, then how are some children so specific with what they’re seeing? Even going so far as to describe and/or name someone who passed away a long time ago? Are they unconsciously picking up these pieces of information from overhearing past conversations, although the adults don’t recall ever talking about it?
And why do they grow out of this connection when they get older? The prime time that a lot of people describe their child(ren) relaying spooky tales of ghosts, spirits, etc. are around 2-4, and decreasing exponentially as they get older until it diminishes altogether, with the now older child unable to recall the event at all in a lot of cases. What causes this seemingly spiritual ability to fade?
And as with small children, animals, also, have what seems to be an instinctual 6th sense to detect these presences as well.
This video just happens to catch the dogs being attracted to a shadowy figure in the hallway, which can also be seen by the lady (and us viewers) behind the camera. (Is this a practical joke? Someone that the lady knows trying to scare her? Herself being in on the joke? Or is this a legitimate shadow-figure caught on tape?)
When you realize that dogs (and other animals) see on another spectrum than humans, the belief that they’re really seeing something normally unattainable to the human eye is quite an interesting proposal to consider and lends credence to the possibility that they are, indeed, seeing “invisible” entities.
There’s always uncertainty when it comes to an individual’s testimony or proof, but this is presented just to show the uncanny behavior of the dog’s reactions to certain things, and sometimes nothing at all. What are the dogs really seeing or sensing that most of us can’t?
4. Dicyanin Goggles
Now that we’ve covered the visual spectrum that dogs seem to see in (ultra-vision, night-vision, tend to see the world in shades of yellow, blue, and gray) I thought it would be interesting to bring up the dicyanin goggles, that were created in the 1920’s by scientist Walter Kilner that allows the wearer to see auras.
And strangely, dicyanin (a dark blue chemical dye) is now illegal, and only those of a high enough security clearance are able to obtain it.
“Because of the dyes ability to block out the white light spectrum, it helped Kilner’s ability to concentrate on the person’s aura.
Before the 1940’s, private researchers were able to freely use Dicyanin Dye. During this same time frame the U.S Government banned any use with the dye.
In 2010, very briefly the public was able to buy Dicyanin Dye but was quickly banned once again. When a government chemist was asked to see just how classified the dye was, the chemist found out that the company that creates the dye assigns a special code to its customers.
The chemist also found out that his security code allowed him to buy all the LSD, Heroine and Cocaine he wanted but wasn’t high enough in clearance to request ‘Dicyanin Dye’.” – Why Is Dicyanin Dye Illegal?
Surprisingly (or perhaps not) there is very little information on this case. Aside from a small handful of websites, most of which were copying and pasting the same data, it is difficult to find anything substantial.
From the same website (and others with the same information – pretty much word for word):
Quote from Valdamar Valerian: “…A friend of mine and four of his friends experimented with crystalline structures a year or two ago (mid-1980’s – Branton), and they figured out how to cut them along certain planes so they could actually see the aura or energy field around people. That’s when they discovered that all people aren’t ‘people’, or the people they thought they were. It appears that some E.T. humanoids have a dark blue ovoid aura.
(Note: Aura cameras developed by Chuck Shramek — yes, the same Chuck Shramek of the ‘Hale-Bopp Companion’ controversy — and others clearly show the 7 multi-colored ‘chakra’ points of the human soul/spirit matrix. Presumably since reptilians have NO soul, they would have NO multicolored auric field. – Branton).” – Why Is Dicyanin Dye Illegal?
I have to be honest, I have not done enough research on the “reptilian” theories to come to an opinion on what was written on the above statement. And my own experience and study on the existence of auras is not as in-depth as I would like.
With that being said, I must again reiterate to please keep an open mind, but be discerning at the same time. Obviously there’s no way to know the legitimacy of what was stated, so further research and critical thinking is always needed before jumping to conclusions.
On the same subject as auras, one can actually train themselves to see this energetic field around living beings and objects (and perhaps other beings) – and just like how children are more keen to see spirits/ghosts when they’re younger, a lot of them are also able to see auras, but grow out of this ability as they get older.
Imagine having the capability of knowing how a person’s character is, just by essentially seeing their soul (if there is one…). It’s no wonder the higher-ups wouldn’t want this to get into the public’s hands…
5. Red Night Vision Goggles
During the Vietnam War, there was an alleged incident with specific night vision goggles that used a red spectrum that was given to some of the US military to use.
It worked decently enough to detect thermal signatures and see in the dark; however, there was one significant problem.
Along with those helpful capabilities, people have reported ALSO seeing creatures flying right next to them by the aircraft, that couldn’t ordinarily be seen with the naked eye.
It’s an extremely unnerving account, with purported testimonies of pilots saying that the creatures were looking right at them and pointing to them to their compatriots, letting the other creatures know that these humans can see them.
The discussion about these night vision goggles starts @ around 46:40 and goes on for about 10 minutes. At one point, Clif High relates how his dad describes the flying creatures
Here is a short transcript from the 53:40 mark, highlighting a small portion of the conversation:
Clif High: “-my father said that the single exposure, in terms of him describing it-“
Al: “Made you mad?”
Clif: “The single exposure to the goggles that he would put on that one time, uh, had an unsettling effect on him for several weeks afterwards, and the people that wore the red goggles, the gunner’s and these kind of people were unstable at best for, for months. Many of them were cycled right out of the war as a result of this experience.”
Al: “Yep, that so fits with the whole Vietnam War anyway, and you couldn’t tell the difference – everybody went crazy over there.”
Clif: “Right, right. But here these guys had a real reason for doing it, because of the images coming in, and the radiation, probably.”
Al: “But, I mean, imagine the energies letting loose in Vietnam at the time. No wonder they was attracting those kinds of… manifestations.”
Clif: “You’re right. Maybe the manifestations are there continuously, always around us, but they just don’t disturb us.”
Al “It’s just a strata of reality, right?”
Clif: “Right, right, because we don’t see ’em.”
Could this be some kind of psyop technology that introduces holographic images that aren’t really there, but makes the wearer think it is? Was this simply a test on the military to see how they would react to this scenario? Did they want to be able to test this deception tactic on their own personnel to see if the images would be perceived as real or not?
Or were these soldiers REALLY seeing through the spiritual veil?
6. Ayahuasca / DMT Use
I don’t know enough about DMT or Ayahuasca, or anything of the other mind-altering drugs. So please use your own discretion on this matter. As for myself, personally, I have never used drugs of any kind (other than tylenol/nyquil or the like), so cannot give an account based on this experience. But upon reading other people’s testimony of their use with ayahuasca in particular, I have included it on this list.
The experiences with drugs, shrooms, chemicals, herbs/plants, etc. have long been known to induce hallucinations and/or strange perceptual realizations. But is it all in our head? Or could these drugs really give us the ability to perceive our surroundings across the physical plane and into the spiritual? Is it just a strange chemical reaction in our brain giving us these strange visions?
If that was the case, it’s interesting that people across different cultures and beliefs still claim to see the same entities as one another. As this article states:
“A snake is a common entity taken by Mother Ayahuasca, and in his book, The Cosmic Serpent, Jeremy Narby asserts that the DNA double helix was shown to humans through the serpentine entities of Ayahuasca.
The serpent has been represented throughout various cultural symbols, such as the caduceus, kundalini life force, the Mayan god Quetzalcoatl, and the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
Jaguars are another DMT entity often experienced through Ayahuasca. In fact, shamans are said to be able to physically turn into a jaguar at will, something attained through becoming one with this entity over the course of many ceremonies.” – Scientists Want to Know More About DMT Entities People Encounter
Huh. There’s the serpent/reptile again. Seems to be a very frequent entity that has been seen throughout the ages. I swear I’m not intentionally looking for references to them. They’re just coming up during my research. It does make for a strange association though seeing them throughout a post meant to expose the possibility that hidden beings and entities may exist alongside us without our awareness… And it makes an interesting correlation to the human DNA and the connections between people and the “reptilian conspiracy“.
There’s also accounts of beings that one couldn’t even dream of:
“Rather than entities born from individual emotion, people describe meeting entirely autonomous entities, so bizarre and alien that one can’t possibly imagine having created them with their mind. Hence, the reason Dr. Griffiths is so intrigued.
In his book, Breaking Open the Head, Daniel Pinchbeck describes meeting negative autonomous entities that continued to haunt him for weeks after his trip with a DMT molecular variant called DPT.
Similar to some accounts of DMT entities, Pinchbeck said the beings he encountered expressed disdain or pity for his presence as a mere human. Others have said they experienced indifference from DMT entities or messages saying, “Ok, you’ve seen it, now leave.”
But with DPT, Pinchbeck was subjected to a terrifying world of gothic insects, lizards and winged creatures, describing it as a postmodern demonic MTV psychedelic. He realized in retrospect that taking a drug of that magnitude without the shamanic ceremonial aspect was disrespectful and maybe a factor in his frightening experience.” – Scientists Want to Know More About DMT Entities People Encounter
From these accounts, it reminds me of the pictures of demons I saw from a collection of images of demonology and magic, which I am not going to link due to the graphic nature of the pictures. Research at your own risk.
And as for the use of Ayahuasca, as related by Daniel Pinchbeck, it is unwise to attempt this consumption without a guide who is knowledgeable and experienced in this substance. In this case as well, please use your best judgement and discernment. Again, I, myself, have never had drugs of any sort, so cannot recommend based on my own experience. And I am still on the fence as to the pursuit of certain knowledge (is this a ritual or occult magic of some sort that people shouldn’t engage in? I’m not sure.), so will leave it for the readers to decide.
So how are most of us never able to perceive these beings if they’re supposedly everywhere? Their spiritual composition vs. our physical eyes aside, it’s amazing the events we’re able to miss when we’re simply not paying attention to it.
To see how inattentive blindness works, watch the below video.
(bold text added for emphasis)
“The notion of hiding in plain sight originally developed in the 1600s as a military tactic that posited that soldiers could occupy any space on the open battlefield as long as they remained out of the line of view of their enemies. As weapons technology advanced and combat evolved beyond rank-and-file fighting, the concept expanded to include early forms of camouflage.
Some 200 years later, Edgar Allen Poe established himself as the father of the modern detective story with the “The Purloined Letter,” published in 1844.1 It features C. Auguste Dupin, an amateur sleuth (and the model for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes), uncovering the whereabouts of a scandalous missing letter. The plot hinges upon a trope of the genre that Poe is also credited with creating—namely, that the best place to hide something is often right out in the open.
As a theory, hiding in plain sight relies more on the limits of human perception than outright trickery. The paradox of the visible remaining unperceived is a function of our need to filter sensory information in order to navigate the world.“
Some people/animals seem to be able to sense these presences, but perhaps we try and “scientifically” explain this away by saying it’s delusion, paranoia, schizophrenia, sleep paralysis, or any number of differently labeled mental states and disorders and/or wild behavior.
And with the advent of new technologies and extensive research into how the mind works, it may not be such a far-fetched idea that we are simply mass-hypnotized into not realizing (believing) that these beings even exist, let alone are right in front of us.
Perhaps we have lost our naturally inclined spiritual awareness, being indoctrinated into the material/physical aspect of this planet. As our energies/vibrations diminish due to brainwashing techniques and lack of divine pursuit, so too does our understanding of who we are, our conscious recognition, and our visual discernment.
If monsters, demons, spirits, aliens surround us, without our knowledge, it says more about us, than them. The effort to keep this secret from getting out has been passed down through centuries, if not several millenia. And as more and more people rely on “logistics” and “verifiable proof”, while rejecting the spiritual inclination of everything, enabling not only the “inattentive blindness”, but a “spiritual blindness” as well, it is leading us further and further away from the truth.
It truly gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Hiding in plain sight.”
Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
