People Describe Their Personal Alien Abductions

Have you ever witnessed a UFO in the sky or experienced creepy figures standing at the end of your bed, but passed it off as something commonplace, like an airplane or sleep paralysis? Although these strange experiences can be rationalized with logic, what if these happenings were of the paranormal variety? What if you really did see an extraterrestrial spacecraft in the sky? What if those creepy figures you saw were actually aliens abducting you?

For the Reddit users whose true alien abduction stories appear in this list, these nightmare scenarios are all too real. From waking up in a totally different location to seeing creatures that are not of this world, these accounts real alien abductions may change the way you look up at the night sky.

  • One Day We'll All Learn The Truth

    From Reddit:

    "My mom tells a story of her and her friend. Let's call her friend Lisa.

    When my mom and Lisa were teenagers, they were up on the roof of Lisa's house, and they see a bright light in the sky. Next thing they know, the light is gone. Thing is, they think they've been on the roof for like 15 minutes, but something like 3 hours passed.

    My mom doesn't remember anything about what happened during that time, and Lisa simply refuses to talk about it. She would answer my mom with things like, "I dunno," and "Just drop it," for a long time.

    A couple months later, my mom moves away and loses contact with Lisa for about 10 years. She finally meets up with her again and immediately notices that something is odd about Lisa. She appeared very "distant" to her, with a very "dreamy" demeanor like she was really happy and at peace for no good reason.

    After they talk for a bit, Lisa brings up the incident on the roof. My mom says she still doesn't really remember anything about it, but Lisa remembers. She remembers everything. She said that at first, it was all in bits and pieces, and she couldn't remember any of it clearly. She was confused, scared, and wanted to avoid discussing it. Then, as time passed, she began to remember more of it.

    She remembers it all clearly, and she remembers the other three times she was abducted after that clearly as well. At first, they paralyzed her somehow and did all sorts of invasive experiments on her, but by the most recent time, they stopped probing her and began to talk with her. They didn't speak English or any other human language, but she could understand everything they said even though she can't speak their language herself. Apparently, they told her all sorts of things - stuff about space, Earth itself, and most shockingly, predicted years beforehand that she would get pregnant in a specific year and it would also be a stillborn, and that she would never be able to have children again. They also told her that it was not their fault, and they even made an attempt to save her from this fate, but they were unsuccessful.

    They also told her that they had abducted my mother another time after that first incident. My mom says she has no recollection of any other [encounters], but she does have recurring nightmares of being abducted, but she's "almost sure" that they're just that - nightmares.

    Anyway, Lisa tells my mom that every time she speaks with them, she comes to understand "the truth" more and more. When mom inquires what "the truth" is, Lisa just says that "you will know eventually," and she says that once she learned of "the truth," everything became wonderful.

    My mom has seen her a few more times over the years (we still live in another state from her), and she apparently has a pretty normal life, and doesn't obsess over alien stuff (like some supposed alien abductees do). She only ever brings it up in passing, so it's not a central part of her daily life."

  • The Dream Warrior Battles The Greys

    From Redditor/u/AzureW:

    "I always used to have nightmares about "the Greys" or nightmares about watching a UFO in the sky just hovering and looking at me. Sometimes, I would be minding my own business in these dreams and when the Greys would come, a feeling of indescribable horror would overtake me. I would try to run in these dreams, but I would "feel" the aliens crawling into my mind. I would become staggered and dizzy, and then, my eyesight (eyesight in the dream) would fail. My limbs wouldn't move properly - then, nothingness.

    I would wake up sometime later shaking, perhaps trying to rid myself of the sleep paralysis. I would often sit awake for an hour or so, and every time I thought about the nightmare, I would get the most intense shiver up my spine. Sometimes, the dreams happened more than one night, and I always seem to have these dreams when I travel or go on vacation.

    One night, I decided I had enough and went back into the "dreamworld" knowing what awaited me. Predictably, the Greys came, and I could feel them probing my mind again. As they got closer, I became more dizzy and unfocused. Suddenly from nowhere, I pulled out a sword and [took care of them]. I woke up, and I haven't had a dream like that since (it's been three years).

    I have no doubt it was just my mind, and that I "conquered" some fear I had from watching too many Stephen King movie adaptations as a kid, but it's very interesting to think: "What if they were real and were probing my dreams, and I destroyed their dream avatar or something?"

  • Child Loses Hearing As UFO Drifts By

    From Redditor/u/NegativecapS:

    "[This took place in] 1997, Colorado Springs, CO. I was eight years old, playing in the sand volleyball court at the park down the street from my house. I was engrossed in my activity - burying my collection of Happy Meal toys in the sand, and then digging them back out, repeat. I was looking down, but decided suddenly that I needed to look up because the world around me had lost all sound.

    There was no longer any ambient noise. No traffic noise from the busy streets just a block over. No more dogs barking. No more birds chirping.

    I looked at the street that bordered the park, and that is when I saw it.

    It looked like a stealth bomber turned sideways (nose leading, one wing down toward the road and the other pointed up at the sky). It was completely shiny black in color, as tall as a house, and shaped like an arrowhead. It was cruising the street at 3 mph, just gliding over the road. I watched it for maybe 20 seconds. As soon as it had passed behind some two-story houses and out of my sight, I got my hearing back full-force.

    I ran home with my pee-soaked pants and never spoke a word of it to anybody."

  • Whispering Voice Beckons Man Awake

    From Redditor/u/Oconitnitsua:

    "A couple of years ago, I was trying to get to sleep, but I couldn't because I kept seeing flashing lights outside. After a while, I closed my eyes only to hear what sounded like whispers. I sprung awake and started looking around. I finally went back to bed and closed my eyes for five seconds when a voice says, "You can wake up now."

    I woke up, and it was 8 in the morning."
