    Phantoms and Monsters: Pulse of the Paranormal

    [​IMG]

    In 2013 I was living in Houston with my parents studying for the Bar exam. I would get up every morning around 4am to go run about 5 miles before starting my long days of studying. By the time night rolled around I was exhausted and had no trouble falling or staying asleep. My bedroom was on the first floor which was just a single room next to the garage. The second floor is where the kitchen, dining room and living room were and the third floor is where the guest bedroom and my parents room were located. My parents rarely came to my room because they knew I was either studying or sleeping.

    This particular night all was normal. I finished studying, took a shower and fell asleep to the sound of 'The Golden Girls' on TV. I always set the timer on my TV so I could fall asleep whenever and not have to worry. Well later that night after dozing off I was woken up by the sound of someone breathing heavily. It sounded like someone was struggling to breathe. It was as if they had smoke in their lungs and couldn’t breathe. I knew immediately something was wrong. I didn’t open my eyes because I didn’t want whatever it was to know I was awake and I was freaked out and didn’t want to see what was there. I knew it wasn’t either of my parents immediately. I could feel the heat from the breath on my mouth. I slowly and carefully opened my eyes the slightest amount and what I saw will haunt me forever. I was wide awake by this time.

    I could see this tall creature standing over me from my left. It was darker than the darkness of my room and it was breathing into my mouth. When I got a good look at it I was even more terrified. It wasn’t your normal everyday figure. (Although a black figure in your room at night isn’t normal period). It looked like it had tree branches growing out of it. It had branches coming out of its head and its arms. I can only explain it as looking like Groot from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but I hadn’t seen that movie at the time....if the movie was even out yet. It wasn’t until over four years later I saw the movie and immediately thought of my experience. But Groot looks harmless. He’s kind looking, Whatever was in my room wasn’t kind looking and I didn’t want anything to do with it. I knew I couldn’t just lay there and let it do whatever it wanted to do so I tried to say a prayer. I closed my eyes and screamed out the Lord’s Prayer and immediately it was gone. I slept with the lights on all night for weeks.

    To this day I get freaked out when I wake up in the middle of the night, which is now very often. I often wonder about my experience. I can’t decide if I think it was a demon of some sort or an alien. I don’t usually tell people this story because they don’t believe me. But I will go to my grave swearing to it’s truth.” TW
    NOTE: There have been a fair number of related encounters in recent years. Are these spirit manifestations, alien or something more sinister? Very bizarre phenomenon. Lon

    Not quite the same, but reminds me of the trees from "Wizard of Oz" that took umbrage with Dorothy picking apples.

    Sounds similar in appearance to the Shtriga featured in Supernatural.
