Hi,
My names Kellie, im 19 years old and I need advice concerning shadow people.
Okay I have always had this one clear memory of an experience with a shadow person. I was 11 and its basically the norm... waking up with the room feeling wrong, sit up to find a black silhouette of a person, with no distinguishable features staring at me in the corner. With this came the feeling of utter terror, dread, fear to the point that I could not move, even with the light an arms reach away, as I felt like if I did it would attack me. Eventually (after what seemed like hours) I dashed for the light, and as soon as it flicked on, it was gone.

This has always been a memory for me, a distant once off. It was scary, but it was in the past. But I remember that when I was with friends when I was 16 we got talking about experiences that we've all had. It bought back memories... growing up my sister and our 2 friends talked about those glowing red eyes we saw out of the window at a sleepover in which I did not remember, My friend sarah would say that at my new house we saw glowing red eyes in the hallway, in which if I think hard enough I can remember an image... and then I remembered my friend ellie saying that we saw it outside my bedroom window when I was 12.

I had heard these stories over and over throughout my childhood and as I didn't really remember much I always just dismissed them as a cool bedtime story-- it might be real, but so what?
So, my friends and I were talking about experiences when I was 16, and it made me think that maybe all of those experiences were real and maybe I should look into it. When I went and visited my childhood friend who moved far away (the one who saw it outside my bedroom window), I asked her if she remembered that, she said to me... 'Yeah... but what about when it was in your bedroom!?'. I stared at her, I honestly remembered NOTHING whatsoever about it, but something was nagging at me... so I said hold on. I thought harder then I ever have in my life and I conjured up an image and feeling in my head, and I began to ask her questions like 'where were we, what perspective in the room'... etc, and it matched up completely, we were on matresses on the floor facing the door from the left corner in my room across from the door... what I pictured what it standing in my doorway and thats exactly what she described!

Basically this is what she said happened: We were talking, about to go to sleep and all the sudden there was a jarring feeling of 'wrongness' in the air, we both froze and peeked up and there was an entity in the doorway, it was about 6 ft tall, the deepest black you can imagine, cloaked and shrouded in some form of black mist... but what was most terrifying of all was its glowing, slanted red eyes. She said she was frozen, she was scared, fearful and she just couldnt do anything. She glanced over at me and I was just staring at it. She said it lasted about 10-15 seconds and then it dissappeared.

What I remember is the eyes, and everything else seems to be in my peripheral... I wasn't scared per say, more numb. Its hard to describe but what I remember is just like being drawn in.... I remember the blackness, the cloak, the mist, the doorway. But I have no idea how long it lasted or what happened before or after, for me it is only an image. Supposedly in the days following I did not want to talk about it at all.

Which brings me to what I need advice on. Firstly, if multiple friends have witnessed this and with the red eyes at least, I can only conjure images or faint memories, is there a chance that there have been other times where I have been alone and I cannot remember anything? Also, I have looked but I didnt really see other stories about people forgetting about them... they seem pretty memorable.
Lastly, How can I go about remembering these? is it a good idea?... i've heard hypnotism can be risky, but im not sure.
and if there is anything else you want to add or ask, feel free!

Thank you for reading, and thank you for your help! Posted Image

Sounds like it happened a while ago and when you were young.  The problem with things like that is that our human memory is unreliable.  For example: Police have done studies on the reliability of witness identifications & statements  "Prosecutors recognize that eyewitness testimony, even when given in all honesty and sincerity, isn't necessarily credible. Merely because a person claims to have seen something does not mean that what they remember seeing really happened"  http://atheism.about.../eyewitness.htm

The red glowing eyes out the window, could they have been a couple reflective strips outside?  Could they have been the next door neighbor's tail lights?  Could they have been a neighbor's pet or animal?  Were you and your friends on any mind altering narcotics/drugs?  Could the shadow have been a product of your own physical shadow (or of something in the room) and your young imagination?  I'm not saying you didn't experience anything but before you speculate that it's supernatural you need to first rule out the possibility that it is something natural.

My advice is not to try to force yourself to remember something.  If you're brain is blocking out a memory it's doing it for a reason.  A person's sanity can be a fragile thing and selective memory is it's defense.  You'll remember when it's time.

Yes it is possible to forget some of these things that happen. The most intense times are what I think we remember. Because these things are from the spiritual realm, I think it can be somewhat like a dream in that we don't remember everything, but we would not forget it as quickly as if it were actually a dream. I say this because I have talked to people who have had experiences with the supernatural and have forgotten them, I don't think that it is rare.

for example, once when I was around 14 or 15 I think, me and my mom were driving down the street. We were in an area that I had seen ghosts on multiple occasions. My mother never believed me every time I reported them. Anyway, something in the car started choking me. My mom looked at my neck and said it looked like there was a hand imprint squeezing my neck, I could feel this as she was looking at it and describing it. I asked her about it the next day and she had completely forgotten...

When I think about that I think about the parable of the sower.

Matthew:13 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

and

18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”


I know that this parable is talking about a positive thing, and not a negative thing, but I think that opposites can be true as well.. what is similar in the examples is that we are dealing with that of a spiritual nature.

Probably your own brain seals these memories to protect you.

It happened to me when my childhood friend's head got squished in a car accident in front of me, I had fainted & couldn't remember a thing :P

Hey, I would say don't force yourself to remember anything because then it becomes disorted and memories don't come back as accurately. I have had many encounters with the Shadow People and still do.

i am a sceptic about things like this but i myself saw one of these things when i was a child i was 7 at the time (i know bear with me ).it was standing in the corner of my room when i was away visiting my sister and her husband in norfolk .
i remmember waking up and looking straight at it it didnt do much just stood there for a few seconds then sort of faded through the wall ,being 7 i screamed the bloody house down .
i learned later that a lot of my family had seen the same thing and always when a woman in the family was pregnent (before they knew they were) my sister had seen it my second oldest brother and after me my nephews and my own kids.
thing is we always seemed to call it "the little man" even though i didnt remember how tall it was at the time and there was no indication of gender.
now the spooky part i had always put the experiance down to being a kid however a few years ago my beloved nephew took his own life (RIP Lee) the night after i heard the news i saw the self same thing in my kitchen at home i was wide awake and walking in there to grab a beer from the fridge .same thing there for a few seconds then faded through the wall same hat same red eyes everything.
then a month ago i was in bed woke up for no apparent reason felt uncomfortable (the being watched feeling) and there it was again in the corner of the room then fading away .
i must admit i started laughing and though **** you this is stupid and not real but it was there and i saw it :cry:
