Young Woman Recalls Frightening ALIEN HUMANOID Encounter at Home

A young woman recalls her frightening encounter with an alien humanoid in her bedroom. The incident has changed the way she sees reality and consciousness and our existence on this planet.

"I saw an alien in my room and showed them a meme. I wrote this account 6 months ago because I needed to get this story off my chest. This experience was starting to affect my relationship and I desperately needed to tell someone and move on. I decided not to go through with posting about it because I didn’t want to seem cringe or have a bunch of people tell me that I was lying.

Fast forward to today and I’m finally feeling brave enough to share. Context: I’m female, I was 22 at the time and in my last year of engineering school, still living in my parent's house. Since then I’ve moved out and got a job in another city.

Back in April 2022 I was laying in bed relaxing and had drifted off to sleep around 1 am (I’m a night owl and typically stay up well into the night). Sometime after I fell asleep I was awakened by someone grabbing me from behind in an awkward hugging motion. Like a bear hug but more awkward and grabby. I slept on my side and would usually face the wall, so I needed to turn around to see who was touching me. My mom usually gets up for work super early, so I assumed it was her coming into my room to hug me and say bye for the day. I was horribly wrong. When I started to turn around, my vision was still blurry, and I couldn’t see anyone standing directly next to my bed. I was confused because I had just felt someone touching me.

Before I had even finished fully turning to see, my eyes had wandered to the corner of my room near my desk, and my body froze immediately. There was this unknown being floating directly above my desk. I’m not even sure if “being” is the right word to use, but it looked humanoid. This being was slightly shorter than me (I’m 5’3), had a larger than normal head, and a tiny slit mouth, and their skin was this blackish, star-speckled color. I don’t even know how to describe it, but they almost looked airy, like if I poked them my finger would go right through. I felt like I was looking into some sort of cosmic gas. It was really strange, but the most prominent feature I noticed was their gigantic, deep black eyes. The eyes somehow managed to be a deeper black than their skin. They were so huge and just very striking to see.

When I saw them hovering over my desk, I made eye contact and my whole body froze. My immediate instinct was to get up and run away, but it was like I couldn’t move my arms and legs no matter how much I thought I needed to. I was frozen still. A strange detail I remembered the other day was that when I made eye contact, all the ambient noise in the room was gone. It was completely silent, and we were just staring deeply into each other’s eyes. It was like time completely frozen at that moment. While I was staring into their eyes, I felt something I had never felt before. I felt the most primal fear I could have ever felt. I felt like I had suddenly reverted into a caveman or something. I felt this horrible dread, a horrible terror. I kept thinking that I needed to get up and run, I needed to get away, but I couldn’t move.

And then I heard this message in my head. I can’t exactly describe how I heard it. It wasn’t as if someone said it to me, but as if it was directly planted into my own thoughts. It said, “Don’t be afraid,” and I thought to myself “What in the world is going on?” I was confused because I heard this message but the being itself did not speak. Like their mouth didn’t move, in fact, I don’t remember any sort of facial expression ever being conveyed other than the creepy intense stare. I felt a sort of calmness wash over me and I blacked out a few moments after that.

The next thing I remember is being seated at my desk. The being was gone but I could still hear these messages in my head. I’m assuming they realized how scared I was and decided to hide themselves to avoid me freaking out again. I can’t exactly remember the entire conversation word for word, or how it even happened, but I remember the gist of it. Basically, I was shown these images of real-life war (maybe the war in Ukraine?) and images of war in things like cartoons and media, and I guess it wanted to know my opinions about both and the way the images made me feel. I can’t remember my response but I remember feeling that they were mildly satisfied with it. For a moment I felt like there might’ve been a third presence in the conversation like someone else was observing, but I’m not completely sure.

At some point during the encounter, I felt awkward and I grabbed my phone to look online, just looking for something to calm myself down. Nobody was in the room but still, I felt like I was being watched intensely. It’s worth noting that I have very severe social anxiety, and I was scared, but I didn’t feel like I was in danger anymore. Anyway, I ended up finding some stupid meme and laughing at it, and I got a feeling like the being was questioning my behavior like they seemed intrigued by the way I was acting. I remember holding my phone up in the air like “Look!” not knowing where they were but trying to show them anyway.

There was a moment of silence, and then the next thing I know I was back in bed again like nothing ever happened, in the blink of an eye. My phone was lying next to me on the bed, and the screen was off. I grabbed it to look at the time. It was like 3 or 4 am. I checked my tabs to make sure I wasn’t insane, and sure enough, the last page that I had been on was still open. I don’t think they liked my meme.

After this happened, I felt like I had been severely traumatized. I slept with a light on for several months after this happened. I talked about it constantly, so much so that I started to overwhelm my girlfriend with my behavior. I was paranoid all the time, I couldn’t fall asleep without checking that same corner over and over again. I spent months researching other people who’ve had similar encounters, just trying to convince myself that I’m not crazy. I still do feel paranoid a lot of the time, and sometimes I convince myself that it wasn’t real and I was just dreaming, sleep paralysis, but my body knows the truth. I still feel that horrible dread feeling when I think about what happened, especially when I think of looking into their eyes. My hands will shake and I start to sweat, my body goes numb. It’s the only thing that keeps me 100% sure that it wasn’t just a dream. I still find myself checking corners when I’m in bed at night, but it’s gotten a lot easier to manage now that some time has passed.

This experience has completely changed the way I see reality and consciousness, and definitely made me ask myself some tough questions about our existence on this planet.

Edit: A lot of people have asked me if I remember what meme I showed them. Unfortunately, I don’t. I use the Apollo app and the app had already refreshed when I went to check my phone. I will however try to look for it and will post an update if I find it."
