I had a rather strange experience last night.
I woke up in the middle of the night to a floating object a few feet above the pillows. I’m not exactly sure how to describe it. It appeared to be about 3 inches in diameter and was moving slowly like it was floating in the air. The weird part was that it wasn’t round. It was squiggly around the edges and resembled a tangle of strings or fibers that were all moving very slowly as if they were drifting in a gentle breeze.
I thought perhaps it was a shadow cast from something on the outside of my window as the moon was bright in the sky. There wasn’t anything on the window. I then assumed it must be a spider drifting down to my bed on a thread of silk. (Really, what else could it be?) I turned on the light and it vanished. I searched the pillows and bed and nothing could be found.
I’ll be honest with you, I had chalked it up to a dream until tonight when I decided to check online for similar stories. It seems that others have seen unexplained black orbs with eerily similar shapes and behaviors. Here are some of the descriptions I found:
I notice a strange dark spot hovering 50 cm above my chest. It’s see through and looks like a mass of dark ink swirling in water. via DavidIcke.com
The weird thing about this orb is it kind of looks almost like a spider because around its centre it has what I can only describe as legs or tentacle like projections. via Psychic Experiences
They are usually round in shape, but not always; there are times when they look more like an amoeba than an orb… via Show Me Ghost West
At this point, I really don’t know what to think about my experience. I can tell you that I was not afraid – except for the few moments when I entertained the idea it might be a big old wood spider dropping down to say hello. I was puzzled and confused. Until tonight, I had never heard of anything like this.
If you have witnessed similar orbs, I’d love to hear your story.
