When it comes to the Men in Black mystery, there’s one thing that many people are unsure of. Certain MIB events take place while the offenders (or, perhaps, “victims” is a better term) are sleeping. No, I’m not referring to nightmarish experiences or hallucinations.
I’m talking about the MIB mentally infiltrating our minds. Is it really possible for anything like this to occur? Many people believe they have experienced something similar. I’ll give you a few examples today.
Sandra Green had a strange dream on December 25, 1985, just hours after seeing a cigar-shaped UFO flying near Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England. She was driving home in the early hours of the morning after a late-night Christmas Eve party in Bath, England.
In the video, Three Men in Black advise Sandra to stay away from UFOs. They were cadaverous MIBs with a “slightly dead” appearance, as they usually are. The warning, on the other hand, was one of those “or else” warnings that the MIB is known for. Sandra started to believe that the MIB could physically invade her mind, manipulate them, and send a chilling message – one that she would never forget – because the dream was so vivid. On the evening of September 9, 2014, Sandra told me the tale, the specifics of the affair still fresh in her mind and memory after nearly three decades.
Sandra’s mind was set on more than just the fact, I must say: icy fear was present as well. And I could tell something wasn’t right over a transatlantic phone call. I messaged Sandra a few days later to clarify a couple of concerns she had posed with me. She remained unresponsive. She hasn’t even done so. Is this a sign of anything to come? I genuinely hoped that wasn’t the case.
Angie told me late on the evening of October 8, 2014, that she had such an encounter on September 6, 1994, in Leominster, Massachusetts. Her reason for calling me was that she had recently begun to have nightmares about MIB events that had occurred twenty years ago.
Angie was once visited by a being resembling the black-suited Slenderman, the ultimate Internet joke reincarnated as Tulpa. Angie was sleeping when the slender MIB appeared in her apartment two decades later, grinning at her with a menacing smile on its thin, ghoulish lips. For a few seconds, Angie couldn’t shift. The beast, on the other hand, disappeared when she finally broke the spell of paralysis. When Angie said that the recent visions had made her fear a return visit from the Man in Black, I wasn’t shocked.
I tried to maintain a positive outlook when advising Angie on how to overcome her fears. But, even though we talked again a few weeks later, I wouldn’t be shocked if Angie has the second, dreaded meeting. My words didn’t seem to comfort her. Now consider the following scenario:
I opened my email on February 28, 2016, about 8:30 a.m., and saw a message from a woman named Belinda, who had a traumatic dream the night before. A Man in Black with gleaming black gloves approached her. In her dream, the MIB led her down an old train track that seemed to go on forever. Belinda was startled awake by an ear-piercing scream when the MIB approached her within a few steps.
This was verified by Belinda’s husband. Over the years, a few tales of sinister Men in Black with black gloves have surfaced, but not to the extent that they have become associated with black fedoras and antique, 1950s-era black cars. However, between October 2015 and January 2016, I received a “cluster” of reports of MIB officers wearing black gloves. Belinda’s story, to put it another way, was not unique. Others existed as well, and they were all fairly similar in proximity.
Since 1995, when we first met, Tracie Austin has been a long-time friend of mine. Tracie and I were about a 45-minute drive apart at the time in northern, rural England. As a result, we spent a lot of time in the United Kingdom, mainly with a mutual friend, Irene Bott, who used to run the Staffordshire UFO Group, attending UFO conferences and having fun.
Tracie immigrated to the United States a few years before me and now lives in Las Vegas. She’s made a name for herself and now hosts her own television show, which is broadcast live from the city’s heart. In the summer of 2016, Tracie invited David Weatherly and me to appear on her show. Tracie was expected to interview each of us separately, with the MIB interviewing me and the Black-Eyed Children interviewing David.
There will also be a round-table discussion on both phenomena, stressing their undeniable links. On September 22nd, a date was quickly set. David and I arrived on the same day and spent the afternoon at our hotel.
The strangeness, however, was not limited to the broadcast. Tracie had three personal memories she wanted to share with me. They were all weird and disturbing, of course. “Every day before we did the show on the Black-Eyed Kids, I was reading David’s book,” she said.
As a consequence, I was thinking about it. I had a dream that we were having a friend over and that there was a knock at the door, which was answered by the friend who came over. And there was a single black-eyed boy on the other side of the door. “No, no, no; you can’t let him in!” I told his friend when he invited him in. But he did take a small step inside. It was just a regular girl in a hoodie and jeans. ‘No, you can’t let him in!’ I exclaimed once more as I dragged him out the door. It frightened me a little when I awoke.”
The skeptic could argue that since Tracie was focused on the BEC and carefully preparing the broadcast at the time, all of the knowledge she had absorbed had now spilled over into her dream state and subconscious. To me, such a thing was not at all improbable. However, I was well aware that the MIB had the uncanny ability to “invade” our dreams and transform them into utter nightmares. Maybe the Black-Eyed Children would be able to do something similar.
