I want to start this story on a positive note; This encounter changed mine and my family's life for the better. I used it as the catalyst for my shadow work and spiritual growth. I could go as far as saying that I now love this experience and I'm grateful to it because it has sent my life on a magical trajectory.
A year ago, my life wasn't so positive, this encounter was breaking me. Mentally and emotionally I was really struggling. 15 years after the reptilian encounter happened, I was suffering from delayed Delayed-onset PTSD.
My relationship with my partner of 17 years was falling apart, our 3 young kids were suffering. My eldest child is an empath and felt my intense fear, he began to 'act out' how I was feeling; he was frightened to look out the windows at night, feeling that something was lurking in the darkness, waiting to take him away, hearing noises, feeling someone watching him, frightened to close his eyes but equally scared to keep them open.
The more I tried to push the image of the reptilian from my head, the more she intruded. I began having flash backs which led to anxiety attacks, intense shaking... My world was dark.
One night in my early 20's (early 2000's), my partner and I, were driving along a dark road in Ireland. We always played deep, intricate House music to zone-out while we drove, we never had conversations on journeys, it was almost like meditation.
The headlights of our Van lit the immediate darkness. Just a few metres ahead on the hard shoulder, an old woman came into view. Stooped so badly, she was looking only at the road as she shuffled along in the darkness. My partner and I acknowledged her simultaneously "what the **** is she doing out here?!"
Almost immediately after our acknowledgment of the old lady, time slowed right down. From about 120km per hour to slow walking speed, It was almost like we had hit an invisible wall but without the impact. Then time jumped forward in increments, like watching a slightly scratched DVD.
The stooped old woman was now only approaching my wing mirror, all sense of time had diminished. I couldn't avert my eyes, nothing else existed, not the road ahead, time, our transit van, not my partner, not my physical body. Only the outline of my window and wing mirror, the darkness and her.
Looking down on her stooped form, still just below my wing mirror, her head detached from her body but on a long neck. Her head still facing the ground 'snaked' up to my window bringing us face to face. She had green eyes that glowed in the darkness with vertically elongated black pupils set into a face covered in scales, in murky shades of green.
The space where a nose should be, was flat. As her mouth opened wider and wider, I seen teeth that were tightly packed, sharp and protruded more and more the wider she opened her mouth. Then, time resumed and we continued on our journey.
I want to mention something about this experience, for those few seconds (if I can even put a time measurement on it) I felt the reptilian's feelings. She was really angry that I saw her, she didn't want to be seen.
How she felt has been a part of my healing journey, I have had many realizations stem from this. Another story maybe?
My partner and I didn't speak of this experience for many years, I'm not even sure if we 'remembered' it.
When I fell pregnant with my first child (2012) the memory was suddenly there again. I asked my partner if he remembered anything about it, he snapped at me "never talk to me about it again, I don't want to know" with his triggered reaction, I knew I hadn't imagined it.
Notably, around this time, during an energy healing session with a friend, I discovered that I had an entity attached to me. A shadow entity who I have met 3 times since. Again, another story.
My partner had experienced something indescribable but to a much lesser degree than me. When I spoke of the encounter, I held back, never letting myself fully relive the experience.
That was until about 18 months ago, following the birth of my 3rd child.
I emigrated to Australia many years ago, spending the past 6 years in Cairns, Far North Queensland. Having recently moved to a small Sugar Cane farming town just outside of Cairns.
My brother, who I am incredibly close too, emigrated soon after me to live in Brisbane.
At work one day, listening to a radio segment on 'Alien Encounters' a guy called in with a story.
His story, incredibly similar to mine, took place in a cane farm just outside of Cairns. An old woman, in the distance, stooped over. She was standing alone, in the darkness of the cane field. He looked away for a second and when he looked back at her, her body remained where it had been but her reptilian head was face to face with this guy.
My brother called me to tell me what he had heard. This phone call was the start of my healing journey, although I didn't see it this way to begin with.
I thought the reptilian had followed me from Ireland, was she looking for me, was she going to hurt my kids.
With a newborn and 2 other young kids, a very unstable relationship and miles away from loved ones. My 'dark night of the soul' began.
