My Father Believed He Was An Alien

His Ghost Visits Me

As I turned the key and unlocked the door I remembered that my Father was dead.

Coming home late at night from work, I could hear Dad playing Rouvan's "My Own True Love", as I parked my car in its spot. Rouvan was singing much too loudly for the this late an hour. I rushed to lift the arm off of the spinning disc on Dad's turntable.

The last record that he listened to before he died was still on his record player. I frantically searched for the power switch to turn it off. It was not on. The arm went back. The record began spinning. Rouvan resumed his song. I tried to turn down the volume. It was all the way down already. I went to unplug it. It was not plugged in. I needed to sit down and grabbed the back of Dad's big leather desk chair.

"Everything always has a logical explanation", I could hear Dad's voice saying in my mind as I started to sit down. But as I started to sit, I saw a box sitting there in the chair. I picked it up and read the label. It was the the box containing the urn of Dad's ashes.

I was still deep in mourning at his loss. My Brother, Bruce, had brought his ashes to my home earlier that night while I was at work, and dropped them off. He sat them down in Dad's chair, at Dad's desk, where Dad always could be found at all hours of the day and night.

The brutal truth of my father now reduced to this box of ashes was devastating. I took up the box, hugged it tight, and laid down to weep. Rouvan began to sing more softly and more quietly, until I was lulled to sleep. My Dad came to me in the comforting and beautiful dream I finally awoke from. He might make stuff happen, he said, but it was just to let me know he was still there, watching over me, as he always has, all of my life. He has continued to do so during each of my days since his death. So I do not become afraid , when he puts his hand on my shoulder and spins me around to catch my attention. We still carry on long discussions during all hours of the day and night, and electrically connect within deep lucid dreams.

I gave Dad's big leather desk chair to my brother. He says that he often sees Dad sitting in that chair.

(This is a photo of my Father and I, at dawn, on the Giza Plateau in Egypt, in front of the Pyramids. Dad "photo-shopped" in the lightning,-- to add the intense dimension of electricity we both felt charging between us, in this exact place, at this exact moment.---)

Real Ghost Stories - By Normal Folks

While many people feel that true life ghost stories do not have the ghost of a chance being taken seriously, those of us who have had first hand real experiences, know that they are quite serious indeed.

The Ghost Next Door is about real people--normal everyday people who have had experiences in the realm of the unexplained. If you are a hard nosed skeptic be prepared to have your beliefs challenged when you read these eery stories.

 

MY FATHER TALKED TO ALIENS - He Believed He Was One

I think Dad photo shopped this but he won't admit it

I think Dad photo shopped this but he won't admit it

It was 3 AM in the morning. I was awoken with the sounds of my father up and getting dressed. I crawled bleary eyed, out of my warm nest of covers, and pulled on a robe.

"Where are you going?" I asked him, observing that he was fully dressed for the cold morning, and was ready to go out, ---just lacking his car keys. He was fumbling through his things on his desk, looking for them. I was grabbing my purse, moccasins, and pulling on my jeans.

"Where are you going Dad?"

"I do not know." he said, sitting down on his bed.

"I dreamed that I had to go somewhere and find something important. ."

"Where? I asked, sitting on the floor by his bed, and pulling on my moccasins, one by one.

" I do not know". He said again. "But I had a dream. It was all in coded number sequences. Alien coded number sequences. I tried hard to memorize the numbers and understand the code but the alphabet was Alien, and I could not remember the code. But it has to do with a reward for the quest of the recorded music that I completed for Them. "

The events of the day that lead up to this Bizarre moment, were just as bizarre in themselves. Dad and I had taken a stroll through the snowy streets into downtown Reno, Nevada. Glistening snow covered everything.

Our late night walk home was beautiful. When we got home we found that we had been robbed. An enormous bulk of Dad's recorded dvd music collection was missing. A hollow, gaping hole stared out vacantly from where Dad's life time collection of music had been. We looked outside for foot prints in the snow which should have been there. But there were none. There were no signs of forced entry.

"It was the Aliens", Dad said. "It was my assignment all along to collect the history of music on earth for Them. It was my Task. The discs were theirs and they came and got them."

Dad did not care to file a robbery report or to even speak of filing one.

We spoke no more of the robbery.

But at 3: AM the following morning, Dad drove us out into the middle of the dark Nevada Dessert, into the middle of nowhere. Suddenly Dad swerved sharply off of the freeway onto a narrow graveled apron. He parked the car. We got out.

"We are here." He said.

THE POWER PLACE DAD WAS GUIDED TO FIND IN THE DESERT - A Paleolithic Petroglyph Site

Ancient Petroglyphs

Ancient Petroglyphs

All around us miles of nothingness stretched out in the darkness. We began walking and finally reached a

a mammoth square outcropping of granite rock.

The enormous and very square granite edifice jutting up from the desert was an overwhelming sight to behold. It looked unnaturally hewn from the stone heart of the earth. We climbed quickly up onto the broad, flat, table top mesa, and looked all about us at the breathtaking vista. The sun was just peeping up over the horizon in the east, painting the sky in glorious colors. In the dawn light, we began to see that the entire edifice was covered with petroglyphs. I felt strange and powerful energies emanating from the site.

I dug my note book and pen out of my purse, and began madly sketching the petroglyphs.

"That will not do you any good," he said. "No one can read these symbols anymore. The symbols are not the message. The message is that that they have been here since the beginning of time."

But of course I went directly to the Indian Counsel in Reno to assist in translation of the symbols. I learned that these symbols are not Native American but date from the Paleolithic Era ---"Cave Man Days".

This is a nearly four-acre site, located three miles east of the city of Reno. It was a significant central meeting and fishing site for American Indian tribes. The rocky granite outcropping is located along Interstate 80, between the Interstate 80 and the Truckee River and near Sparks, and Reno Nevada. The site has over 200 panels of paleolithic- age petroglyphs.

If you zoom in close on this picture of my grand niece & nephew here, You can see the Petroglyph carvings of this ancient site.

My Father chose to be buried here. And so he was.

DAD REQUESTED HIS ASHES TO BE BURIED AT HIS SACRED SITE - And so we did.

When alive, Dad shared his site with his family, taking us all to experience the energies and power of this phenomenal place. Everyone visiting here could feel the power and energies emanating from this ancient place.

Dad Always Believed He Was an Alien - His life was filled with strange and supernatural experiences.

See all 8 photos

All Dad's life, since a small child, he believed that he came from somewhere else other than earth. He believed that his real parents were aliens from another planet. He never believed that he came from where he was suppose to have come from, or that his parents were actually his real parents. His life was filled with too many unsolved mysteries for him to believe otherwise. He continued believing this up to the day that he died. I have always had a hard time believing this but street lights went out when he walked under them and he could operate his computer by moving the cursor with his mind. At blackjack Dad was phenomenally uncanny and could tell what cards were where in the deck. Dad was, all at the same time: an Air Force jet engine mechanic and instructor; a chaplain's assistant, a Baptist Minister, a father helping to raise his children, and a detective for the ACME Agency. He came across a bizarre painting of an alien on the internet one day and told me: "This is what my real mother actually looks like!"

He saved this picture on his computer. It is a painting of the Mona Lisa as an Alien. I have posted it in the poll below. I do not know who the artist is, as Dad has had it on his computer for many years, but I am trying to find the artist so I can credit it. Anyone having any any information on this painting, please let me know.

My father's life was filled with strange and supernatural stories. To preserve his memory, I plan to write about all of them here.

My Father Told Us Ghost Stories - But they were his own true paranormal experiences.

This is me, my baby sister, and my Dad. He read us bedtime stories every night and told us his own stories every evening.

Note here that he had a very elongated skull.

After the loss of his music collection on that snowy night, Dad started all over again, transferring his life's work of recorded reel to reel music onto CD's again. So I still have his complete collection in tact. It consists of the top hits and most popular songs of each year from 1935 to 2008, with 1 disc for each year. He also has a very extensive recorded collection of lullabies from around the world and from throughout time. He believed that the origin of song came from mothers singing to their babies.

What Do You Think? - Dad believed this painting looked like his real mother

The Day After Roswell
The Day After Roswell

This book blew me away! After the passing of the Freedom of Information Act, Colonel Philip J. Corso published his personal experiences with the crashed Roswell UFO. Colonel Philip J. Corso was a member of President Eisenhower's National Security Council and head of the Foreign Technology Desk at the U.S. Army's Research & Development department. He was put in charge of the reverse-engineering of the strange artifacts found at the 1947 Roswell New Mexico crash site. This reverse-engineering project resulted in integrated circuit chips; fiber optics; lasers; and super-tenacity fibers.

I don't remember if I ever told you that right after my mother-in-law died, we had an experience similar to your story with the record player. I'm convinced she came by to check on her son and her grandkids before she crossed over.

@kimberlynapper: Yes, I do remember your experience. I told our experiences to Mom before she died--- for her explanation of how these experiences are contrary to her beliefs. She had no explanation. Mom has never come to me after her death, even in any dreams. I ponder on this. My departed pets return to me in dreams. Great Grandma Nomie comes to me often in dreams. Dad and Uncle Doug come in dreams and physical manifestations. But Mom never has. This is something that I ponder on often.

But here now, in the old age of my life, I ponder on leaving the legacy of the stories of my life to my daughters, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and nephews, in a positive and motivating way. Perhaps we have been given our dark experiences for a reason. Hugs & Love!

I've never known anyone whose family member remembered being from another world and born of other parents. At least, no one who felt safe in speaking of it. What an interesting story. What I love most about this story, though, is how much you loved your dad and how close you were (are) to him. Those are things to which I can relate. I do know what it is like to feel the hand of a departed loved one on my shoulder. Thank you for sharing your story. I am sure it took courage.

The facts speak for themselves. There are 50,000+ stars in our solar system alone that could support life just like our Sun and the Earth. Therefore it is extremely likely that aliens not only exist but that some of them have evolved to the state where they can travel in space and time. Stephen Hawking for one does not believe that time is a constant , if he is right time travel is a possibility and therefore it is extremely likely that some aliens could and have visited us here on Earth.

I for one would love to meet real aliens to see and hear just what more than us they have learned about the origins of time and the Universe.

To live in Nevada is to believe in UFOs and extra terrestrials. I lived there for six years myself. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it, because it's just a given. I've seen lights over the desert, I've had weird experiences, and while I don't know what it was I don't discount that it was from somewhere else.

I can definitely relate... I believe there are many things we simply don't know YET; including many things now regarded as "supernatural." Maybe your dad was an alien, maybe a so-called "hybrid." Just because we-- at this moment-- have no conclusive proof doesn't mean it's not possible. Before we had conclusive proof of little wiggly things in a petri dish, we believed that people who got suddenly ill and died was "the work of Satan." Now we know they are viruses.... see where I'm going with this?

I'm pretty much open to anything and believe that sure there could be aliens among us. Very interesting story. Congrats on your lens being chosen as LOTD!

Love this lens!! I especially like the picture with the three of you standing by the rocks with the three petroglyph people (or whatever they're called) on the right. How cool!! I didn't see them the first time I looked through the page but I saw them when I went back to find the pic that d-artist was talking about.. lol Sounds like your dad was awesome and I'm glad he let's you know that he's still there with you.

@sierradawn lm: Why should you feel to replace the picture. It's your Dad's story and whether or not we believe in it or not, is not important at all. The picture belongs in your story.

I'm very sceptic at giving unexplainable things a name. I'm not religeous and I really couldn't tell if there's more than meet our eye around us. I myself have never ever experienced strange things that couldn't be explained with reason afterwards. However it doesn't matter what I think, it matters what your father thought, it's his story you're telling us. Congrats on the LOTD.

I find your respect for your father's beliefs touching. Whether or not your dad was an alien and whether or not you believe in aliens, you clearly believe in him.

@sierradawn lm: Oh please don't replace the picture...this was just my opinion and I'm not saying that you object is not a UFO, just my photos did have backlight show up in the reflection..everyone should make their own judgment. I personally have had unexplained experiences in my life, so I do understand.

I really truly enjoyed your lens, what an amazing story. I might just read it again, I've met a few people in my life who also believed in aliens. I'm not so sure, but I do believe that it is possible! Thank you for sharing this!

Firstly, I'm so sorry your dad has passed on, my dad recently passed, and it's brutally hard (life feels very different and adjusting is taking time) - I believe that what your dad believed is possible, why not - it's pretty arrogant of the human race to think we are the be all end all in terms of life - I've had strange supernatural things happen since dad passed, and I have no doubt it was him. I hope he's ok. I worry about it. I know he's ok, but I really wish I could speak to him. I feel him, just like you feel your dad. You have a very interesting father. :)
