For reasons of anonymity pseudonyms have been used
For most of her life Paula has had very unusual experiences. So many things have happened over the years that she has come to accept them as normality. In recent years she has become very intrigued by the cause behind these experiences, which has led her to look into the ET contact subject. She soon realised that her experiences appeared to have many similarities to contact experiences being reported by people, so she decided to get in touch with BUFOG to explore further into what has happened. This resulted in her and her partner coming to visit me to discuss everything over numerous hours, which has led to the creation of this report. Paula seems both very open and honest about her experiences and I have no doubt that she is sincere.
An Early Visitation?
When Paula was 5 or 6 years old she had an experience which shows signs of being a visitation by Greys. She remembers waking up one night for no particular reason. She thinks it must have been around 11pm-midnight but did not check the clock so does not know for sure. She looked across her bedroom towards the far wall. Her bedroom door was ajar and the landing light was on.
It was now that she noticed the silhouettes of three figures on the wall. They appeared to be shorter than adult height. The one on the left was very short, about 3.5 feet in height. The central silhouette was a little taller, about 4 feet. The one on the right was taller still, at around 5 feet. The silhouettes did not look human in shape. Their heads appeared too large for their bodies. They had long slender necks, and long thin arms hanging by their sides. Paula has always had quite a slender neck herself, and she remembers being amused that the necks of these figures were even thinner! There was no noticeable clothing on them. They were standing still but not completely stationary, she could see movement in them so they definitely appeared alive to her.
Witness drawing of the silhouettes:
Paula remembers not being frightened by the figures. She stared at them for quite a while, around 10-15 minutes. She does not recall any communication. However she sensed that they were not there to harm her. After a while she decided to call out to her father. He entered the room and asked her whether she was alright. She said to him "Those three are still standing over there!" He looked round the room but could not see the figures with his own eyes. He asked her if she was alright. She said she was fine, and he said goodnight and went back to bed. The figures remained in view for a short while more, then slowly seemed to fade away.
The shadows could not have been caused by her parents standing on the landing as they were in bed at the time, and even when her dad entered the room they were still present. It seems unlikely that it was just her imagination because of the amount of time they were seen for. Something imagined would surely have vanished when her father entered the room? However it does seem that only she could see the figures. It's possible that they were Greys manifesting in the room in some way, and only presenting themselves to her.
Another possibility is that they were other entities of some kind such as ghosts, and that Paula was susceptible to see them but her father not. The shape of the silhouettes and their short height certainly appear reminiscent of Greys.
Another interesting fact which Paula mentions is that ever since this experience she has had chronic nosebleeds, where as she does not recall having them before. Nose bleeds are one of the many things reported by contactees on a regular basis. They can sometimes indicate the presence of an alien implant - a small metallic object that many believe are placed within the individual for some kind of tracking/monitoring purpose. At present we do not know if this is the case, and unless Paula decides to go for an X-ray we will probably not find out either way.
Around the same time as this visitation experience, Paula also remembers seeing a tall man wearing a long coat standing in her bedroom on numerous occasions. He reminded her of someone from her dad's side of the family due to his long dark wavy hair. However as this man was never identified this could just have been a coincidence. Whenever she saw him he would be smiling. She sensed that this man was watching over her and did not have malicious intent. Like the three figures, he never interacted with her directly, and after a while would fade away.
On other occasions Paula would see other people in her room too. Like the man in the long coat, they too did not appear to be there to cause her harm.
It is not just Paula who appears to have this gift, it seems to run in the family. In 1994 when her son Simon was about a year and a half old, Paula's uncle Neil died of cancer. Soon afterwards Simon used to start seeing Neil and his pet dog Bosco on regular occasions in the bedroom. Simon used to sleep in her room in a cot. He would regularly stand up in the cot without warning, point and say "There's the poorly master". This is what Simon used to call Simon, as Neil had been ill for a number of years prior to his death. He would also say "Here's Bosco!" Simon could not say the word Bosco correctly so would say this instead. When he first started doing this Paula had no idea that Bosco had also died soon after Neil. She rang her father and asked "Has the dog died?" Her father confirmed that the day after the funeral, Bosco had ran out into the road and got hit by a car. Simon is now 22 and no longer talks of having experiences such as this.
Paula has also often heard unexplained sounds in her room at night which sound like children playing and laughing, or of footsteps crossing the floor.
When Paula was 31 her husband at the time, Chris, sadly passed away. One night 5 years later in 2005 she woke up in the night to hear someone calling out her nickname "Pals". She assumed it was her son. She tried to ignore him but again he called out again. In the end she sat up in bed and saw a figure standing at the end of the bed in the darkness. Still thinking it was her son she asked "What? What do you want?" The figure asked if she was alright. At this point she wondered why her son was calling her by her nickname instead of calling her mum. She dismissed him, saying "Go back to bed! Goodnight."
In the morning she asked her son why he had entered her room in the night. He denied having done so. At this moment Paula realised that the figure had not been her son, but had been Chris. Seemingly he had appeared to her in the night to see how she was doing. Paula is quite sure that she had been awake at the time and not just dreamed the experience. This is another incident which suggests that Paula has heightened senses and can sometimes see things which many people do not.
For most of her life Paula has noted that electrical devices often act unusual in her proximity. This started when she was quite young. She remembers her mother telling her that she used to set things off. She claims that battery powered devices sometimes seem to run out of charge extremely fast.
In February 2012 Paula and her partner moved into a new property. Over the next 4-5 months they informed me that the bulbs have blown around 15 times, far more often than would be considered normal. As the property itself is relatively new this is unlikely to be down to dodgy wiring. In addition to this both the dishwasher and washing machine also stopped working. Paula has also noticed that when she is handed a mobile phone to check something on-line through it, the wi-fi will often switch off. Obviously this could all be down to coincidence and not related to her contact experiences, but it should be noted that many contactees have reported extremely similar things happening around them.
An Implant Detected?
When Paula was around 10 years old she found an unusual rounded lump on her right ankle. She was at school and accidentally cut her right shin on some wire. When she bent down to check her leg she noticed the lump. She touched it and it felt solid, like a ball bearing under her skin. This appeared to be permanent and after a while she just accepted it and largely forgot about its presence.
When she was 17 she went on holiday abroad. She was going through the airport boarding procedures. When she stepped through the metal detector it went off. The airport security took her to one side and went up and down her with a hand held scanner and again it went off. She was quite worried by what was happening and said to the lady who was scanning her "I haven't got anything on me, I swear to God I don't have drugs!" The lady informed her that drugs don't beep! She replied "Well I haven't even got a battery on me, maybe there's metal in my underwear or bra." She was taken through to a private room where they conducted a full body search on her. But the scanner still went off. In the end the security guard said to her "You're just weird!" and let her go.
It is possible that Paula was giving off some kind of charge which was setting off the scanner. As described earlier, electrical devices have often acted in an unusual manner in her proximity. However another possibility is that the lump in her ankle was an implant. These are small metallic objects sometimes placed within the body of contactees during abductions. It is theorised that they have a monitoring/tracking purpose, but nobody knows for certain at present.
Paula does not know exactly when the lump in her ankle vanished, but when she checked for it in her late 20s she found that it had completely gone. Was the lump just something natural which dissipated after many years? Or had it really been an implant which had been placed within her for a period of time and then removed for whatever reason? If Paula decides to be regressed at some point we may discover the answers to these questions.
Paula says that she has often had dreams which have seemingly come true later on. When she was growing up her family's house used to be situated alongside a sloped area of grass. Her grandfather used to walk down this green whenever he came round to visit. Paula would occasionally have a dream of her grandfather coming to visit, and he would always have a huge black gorilla with him. Paula put this down to the fact that she really liked gorillas as a child. In the dream the gorilla would jump around and dance as her grandfather walked to the house. Whenever she had this dream, the following morning her granddad would show up to visit.
When she was around 24 and married to her first husband Chris, she continued to have dreams that seemed to foretell future events. One night she had a dream that Chris's brother purchased a blue car, and then crashed it. She informed Chris in the morning saying "Your brother's going to get a blue car and he's going to crash it". He told her to stop being horrible. But the following week her dream seemed to come true. Chris's brother went and bought a new blue coloured car, and soon afterwards accidentally crashed!
On another occasion she dreamt that she and Chris went to a wedding. In the dream they were driving a red car, different to their actual car. They also had two children in the dream, a girl and a boy. In the morning she recounted the dream to Chris. As they had no children at the time, they assumed it must just be a normal dream, but took note of what had taken place in it.
A couple of years on, they now had two children just how she had dreamt. Paula's dad lent her some money to get a new car. The one she purchased was red in colour. Soon after this Chris's niece got married. When they drove to the wedding Chris started to laugh. She asked him what was up and he reminded her about her dream. She realised at this point that it had come true.
On another occasion she had a dream that she, her current husband Lee and the kids went on holiday to a place she had not been before. When she awoke she had no idea of where the dream had been situated but remembered the details of what the location looked like. Later in the year the family planned a holiday to Devon, and when they arrived Paula immediately realised it was the place from her dream. She knew exactly where everything was going to be. There is another location she has also dreamt about but so far has not actually visited. However she says that this dream felt incredibly real and she is sure that it is a premonition of a real life place.
Paula often has a warning sign before she experiences such dreams. She claims that before she drops off to sleep she will get a humming sound in her ears. This has happened so often that she is able to predict when she will have a premonition.
It's clear that some of the above could merely be coincidences. However Paula has had so many dreams of this nature that it seems unlikely they are all just down to chance. Contactees often report having experiences such as this, and it appears that many of the people who the ETs contact seem to possess psychic abilities of some kind. It is not really known whether the ETs are interested in them because they have these gifts, or whether they have been granted these abilities as a result of contact.
Another recurring dream which Paula has is of a strange device made of interconnected parts. When she first had this dream she woke up in the morning with the urge to draw it. She was aware that it needed to be made out of gold (or possibly another gold-coloured metal) in order for it to work. The device is formed of cylindrical bars with rounded joints between them which can swivel. The purpose of the device is that it can connect any two objects together.
Witness drawing of the device:
Whenever she has this dream she has the feeling that someone is going to make it, although she does not know who. It is unknown whether it has anything to do with her contact experiences and is an alien device of some kind, or if it is really nothing more than a dream.
One night in 2012 Paula was having a dream about spaceships. She woke up from this dream and realised it was still dark outside. She decided to take a look out of the bedroom window at the stars. While looking up at the sky, she noticed one bright star which appeared to have other smaller lights surrounding it. They were appearing and disappearing. At first she thought they must only be other more distant stars. However she soon realised these smaller lights were moving around the central star, shooting back and forth in different directions.
Witness drawing showing the star and other smaller lights around it:
Paula excitedly ran downstairs to find Lee, who had fallen asleep in the living room. She woke him up and asked him to come and see. They both returned to the window and continued to observe the unusual lights for about 15 minutes. They noted that the lights were all located within a circular area around the central light, which they assumed was a star.
The couple claim to have seen similar phenomena since on other occasions. Paula also informed me that on one occasion she rang up her mother and asked her to look out of the window to also see what she was looking at. Her mother confirmed that she could indeed see the same thing. It is unknown whether these strange lights have been down to an optical illusion caused by particular atmospheric conditions, or something more unusual. Due to the fact that it has been observed on repeated occasions by
