Strange red "nightlight" on ceiling

14 posts in this topic

I wonder if anyone can shed any "light" (excuse the pun) on my experiences. This has happened a few times now and I have no idea why it happens or what it's trying to tell me. I have given the last 2 experiences of the "red nightlight" but I've had others, sometimes with music playing. I know for a fact it's not my imagination. I don't drink and I'm not on any medication. I was totally awake and even sat up in bed, rubbed my eyes and it was still there. I no longer feel frightened or threatened by it, I just find it strange and want to get to the bottom of why this is happening. Okay here goes...

Thursday 24th October - Saw the red light on my bedroom ceiling again, like a nightlight. Pictures of what looked like cartoon cats within this red circular light going round in a circular motion for about a minute then fading away. It took up most of my bedroom ceiling. No longer frightened by it as I'm getting used to it so just went back to sleep.

Friday 25th October - Woke up this morning with what looks like insect bites on my arm. 14 little marks in the shape of the letter Y with a line underneath it a few cm away. Probably just bitten by something, not unduly worried and don’t really think it’s strange but wanted to log it just the same. This has never happened to me before.

Saturday 26th October - Went to bed at 2am, no worries, no problems, sufficiently but not overtired. I was dreaming and this buzzing noise entered my dream, similar to an alarm clock. (It was NOT my alarm clock!) Coming out of my dream, I realised that the sound was actually happening in my room so I opened my eyes to find my ceiling illuminated in a great round red light. It looked like a nightlight and was rotating slowly with pictures of what looked like strawberries and flowers inside it. The buzzing gradually stopped but the red light continued to spin slowly in a circular motion, got a bit lighter then went out. The time was 3.41am.

Does ANYONE have any idea what this means, why it's happening or has had anything similar happen to them? I'd love your opinions guys. Thanks!

hi :)

well, i have had it happen before..and i wish i could tell you what it was, but i will tell you this; this 'pinlight', this red 'nightlight' as you call it, there have been many sightings of it. i once saw one in my back yard; went semi circle through a couple of trees.

one time i was standing there with my daughter in law and the granddaughter; this same type of 'pinlight' just whooshed by all three of us..but slow enough to get a good look at it.

i have read more stories about this, also, lately..i cannot get a handle on it, whether it is paranormal, et related, something else..all i do know is that you are certainly not alone in seeing these..i would be cautious, tho, in 'going back to sleep' right away, after seeing one, just in case :)

Reminds me of the "happy birthday" flower I had got for my 18th birthday. Years later it suddenly started playing. At night. Though I would have sworn that its battery had died a long time ago. And you can't imagine what it sounded like... it still gives me the shivers when I think of it. *lol* And this happened twice. Then I cut it up and tore the friggin' battery out. Not kidding. <_<

Take a photograph of it next time to determine if it is something which is externally real or just some kind of hallucination. I don't know what it could be but it does sound odd whether it be real or hallucinatory.

You are experiencing hypnagogic images. The buzzing is a dead give away. Relax next time and enjoy it. Dive into it with your mind and see what happens next. You might be surprised ;)

I agree, it sounds much like hypnagogic imagry..

The circular movement sounds like a Mandela, have never seen strawberries or cats or flowers.. mine are shapes, platonic solids & the like..

What is the process by which this occurs?

What is the process by which this occurs?

Meditation, observation.

The best time for observing hypnagogic imagery appears to be the mornings, but one can induce it through meditations involving clearing the mind of thoughts and simply observing with the mind awake with egoic thoughts suppressed.

Hypnogogia is a place on the continuum of consciousness. Most people experience it upon weakening for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some induce it on purpose for insights. I have discovered a meditation and a way to hold it. Unfortunately I can't really explained how to be in the hypnagogic world and totally awake at the saw time. It was a discovery inside my mind. How to take one way then another. I can't put it into words. It's a bit like being in total dark but feeling your way foreword only its deep inside and it's not really a physical thing.

global and local energies are really potent at the moment so it doesn't surprise me you've been experiencing this the past week, your consciousness is just trying to make sense of it best it can. There is a lot going on right now.

This makes total sense. I researched more about hypnagogic or hypnopompic hallucinations and that is definitely what I have been experiencing. I haven't been sleeping well for a couple of months now due to fear of sleeping in re a new job and this is occurring from lack of sleep. Thank you everyone for your insight. The "strawberries" and "flowers" I saw was from a stupid game I'd been playing in the early hours of the morning. It's not UFO related or anything ET related lol, simply lack of sleep. REMEDY: I've bought myself a new alarm clock and will relax for half an hour or so before bed AND get into a routine of going to bed at a decent time. :yes: Thanks again guys! :clap:

I'm not reading too much into that bLu3. Although I've never had that happen before, it is possible it's just a bite... :yes:
