Friday night's Open Lines were populated with stories of night visitors. For instance Lisa from Phoenix encountered a Shadow Person who snarled foul words at her in a foreign language (though he graciously vanished after she screamed at him to leave!). A border patrol officer named Charles, told a tale of a "witch" who haunted a New Mexico road that led into Mexico. She was an old woman always seen walking north around 3-4am. Charles doubted the tales until one time he saw her. And just as in the other stories, when he turned around for a second she had completely disappeared when he looked back.
George opened a special line for callers who had experienced interventions from Guardian Angels. "I'd like to tell you how an angel helped me to save the lives of ten people in a van," said a caller who recounted a story that involved him tapping the shoulder of a driver who had fallen asleep as he drove along the highway. What was amazing was that the caller was blind and said he was being guided by the voice of an angel to perform this action at just the right moment to avoid disaster.
Richard C. Hoagland commented on the Shuttle situation as well as the latest news about water on Mars during the first hour of Friday night's Coast. "These streaks are not randomly distributed on Mars, but most importantly they're clumped in two positions 180 degrees apart," Hoagland remarked, adding that the streaks may represent tidal lines which could indicate that at one time Mars was a moon to another planet. As far as the continuing investigation into what happened to the Columbia shuttle, Hoagland said "she was an aging spacecraft--it could have been a combination of age and mis-maintenance."

Late one night while I was laying in bed waiting for the Art Bell program to come on, I was attacked by several entities. This was not the first time I had been attacked by these creatures, but the first time while I was wide awake (I had insomnia) and never by more than one. I was lying in bed listening to the local news and all of a sudden they came through the mattress and lifted me off the bed.
Well, I can tell you it happened so fast that I didn't have time to respond. Here I am, wide awake with these things levitating me and I am completely paralyzed. I can't move a muscle, my arms and legs are dangling in mid air, and they're beneath me pushing me higher up toward the ceiling.
I then realize to my horror that they are lifting me up toward the ceiling fan. I can't do a thing about it because I am completely immobilized. When my face is only about a 2 inches from being pushed into the ceiling fan I hear a voice loud in my head saying very calmly 'they can only hurt you in your mind.' Well, since I had no control of my physical body I started pushing myself mentally away from the ceiling fan. It's working, but only to keep them from pushing me up any further. I am now stuck there, 2 inches from the fan; I'm pushing down and they're pushing up.
I don't know how long I was up there when I realized I am mentally getting tired and I can't do this much longer. Then I mentally ask for Archangel Michael for help, and say I can't do this anymore. Next thing I know a beam of blue light comes out from the corner of my bedroom ceiling and starts to encompass the entire room. Well, my one bedroom wall is entirely mirrored and now that this beam of light has filled the entire room and I'm not in the dark room anymore, I use my peripheral vision and can now see them, and there are a lot more of these creatures that I thought.
This beam of blue light starts to form into a ball as big as my entire bedroom, then starts getting smaller with me in it. When it gets to the point where it reaches my limbs, my limbs are no longer dangling and are pushed toward by chest. I am now the only thing surrounded by the blue sphere and I am in a fetal position. Then I hear the same voice again that earlier had told me that they could only hurt me in my mind tell me that I am secured and the blue ball then explodes.
I have never heard such screams as I heard that night when that ball exploded and I saw those creatures explode into a thousand pieces. I came crashing down at the end of my bed which is wood and landed on my back against the oak frame. I am now paralyzed again, and I think I have broken my back. I again tell Michael I'm hurt and need help. In an instant the blue sphere appears and surrounds me and lifts me on to my bed. I am once again in a fetal position laying on my side in a blue sphere. Then I feel light tingling in my back and a sound as if someone is unzipping something and I know that they are working on my back but the energy is too intense and I black out.
I finally regain consciousness early in the morning and get the hell out of my home. Afraid to return. When I finally return that evening after convincing myself that this could not have happened and that I was safe, I started getting ready for bed. As I was undressing I look into the mirror and see a red welt going from the top of my back to the base of my spine. This was not a dream, it was indeed a nightmare, but I was fully awake.
