A mysterious blue light filled my room and I felt a friendly presence.

It was one or one-thirty in the morning on a warm summer night in July. I was only five years old at this time. My window was open in my bedroom on the first floor of my house, facing towards the backyard. I had abruptly awoken to a loud humming sound coming from outside.

After a few seconds, I noticed a blue light that seemed to be coming from my open window. At first, it was very faint and hardly noticeable; but after the course of a few minutes (three to five), the blue light had become so bright that it covered everything in my field of vision.

I tried to go and get my parents, but I was paralyzed, either out of shock from the event or from an unknown force. All of the sudden, I felt a presence in the room.

At first I was scared, but then I felt a strong reassurance that the presence was not there to harm me.

Then, with an overwhelming flash of white light, the buzzing sound stopped and the blue light disappeared.

After this, I was able to move, and went to the windows to see what had happened. I looked out into the lawn, and everything looked eerily still. The trees weren’t moving, the grass wasn’t waving, and there wasn’t a single ripple in the pool.

Since that day, I have never seen that blue light again.
