As a child saw lights in the woods and had an encounter with being

I was born in April of 1968 and I think I was about 4-5 upon this happening. I lived in Oxford, Michigan and for an unknown reason I woke in the middle of the night, I do not know the time, however I was drawn to the window. I looked out the window and saw a very bright light land in the gravel pit behind my house. I figure it was about a mile out… Once the bright light landed it did illuminate enough to see a glow in the woods. (Just beyond the dig section of the pit). I honestly cannot remember how I was drawn, but I was drawn outside. If I had to guess, I would say it was a "sound" or frequency that drew me outdoors. I remember knowing I was not supposed to be out of bed let alone outside, but was heavily drawn.

Upon entering the backyard, I was greeted by a Being. It was slightly taller than me with a long neck, oversized head and large oval shaped eyes, long fingers and toes. The feet were bear, but honestly do not recall clothing. The overall color of the skin was grey/green. When I came upon it, it took my hand and we proceeded across the yard to the back fence. Once I passed the fence into the woods heading out.. I do not recall a thing. But what I do remember is a feeling of warmth, friendliness and curiosity on both our parts. I felt no fear and felt hugely curious. I remember that my feet felt cool and damp and I remember very clearly the sounds of the night, and the feel of the warm yet slightly cool damp air. There was very little breeze. It must have been mid to late summer.

I had not thought of that night until I was around 15 or 16 years old when my mother and I went into a book store and I saw the book Communion for the first time. I started hyperventilating and feeling dizzy and week in the knees as the memory flooded back. The major difference in looks is that the "grey" on the cover of Communion is a sinister looking being, when my experience was much different.

I petty much put the whole thing out of my head and avoided anything regarding Alien abductions, whether it was books or movies for years. I now feel so far removed from the experience that I am comfortable relating it. I don’t know what it means or if anything happened or even if it really happened. Was it possible it was a dream? I did once talk to a hypnotist when I was in my early 20’s and described my memory to her. She was a Stop Smoking therapist and did Abduction Hypnotherapy also. She indicated that based on her experience, my details were too heavy and too much physical memory for it to be just a dream. She wanted very much for me to follow up with her, but I never did.

I have done very little research, as I was checking out sites on the web I came across you site and decided to throw the information out there and see what came back. Perhaps this is the time for me to do further investigation on this and determine if it were real or not. I see that in 1966 there were a number of sightings in Michigan. However that was years before my time.

So here is your information. Do with it what you will. If it ties into other types of reports, perhaps this will be of benefit. If not, I know that nothing will come from this report.
