So, this happened to me when I was 8 years old. I was living in Long Beach, California at the time. It was the year 2001. I was living in an apartment building, I was taking a shower, and my mom was in the laundry room with her friend down the hall from the apartment. The bathroom had 2 doors; one for the sink and the other for the toilet and the bathtub. So, I was alone of coourse, and someone knoecked the door 3 times, I said "who is it?" Nobody answered. And, for some reason, I just knew it wasnt my mom because she woud've said my name. So, I wrapped myself in my towel, opened the door, and there it was. I saw a tall, pitch black figure. It wasn't walking, it was floating. And from what I remember, it passed by the hall towards the kitchen. I felt like following it, but afraid at the same time. I remember feeling like it was there for a long time, but it just passed by for 3 or 4 seconds. Now that I'm older and that I keep thinking about, I keep wondering to myself, what was it? why did it appear to me only that time in my life? could it be something good or bad?

Well there is the theory that children are more sensitive to that kind of thing because they haven't yet been taught by the world that it's impossible yet.  Maybe you never experienced it again because you were reaching the age where that kind of thing became to improbable for you to perceive anymore.

As to what it was......who can say for sure?

Exactly as OverSword said, children are more susceptible to spiritual contact in most cases. But at the same time it could be a hallucination.
Had anyone close to you passed away before that time, if so then they might have been trying to reach you.
Allow me to quote OverSword, Who can say for sure?

Well, I'm sure it wasn't a hallucination. How do you explain the doorknocks? And yeah, I had family pass away, but I never knew them because they are in another country.

There are accounts from people with near death experiences of being contacted by dead relatives they had never met in life including stillborn siblings.

I have seen a black shadow hovering over my grandpa while he was asleep. The lights turned on and off rather fast and i earn in to see what it was about when the light was on for that split sec i saw him. A skinny figure with a hat on looked at me and and disappeared and the lights went out. Never saw it again. And my grandparents are hard core Christians so of course they did not believe me.

Hey just curious, can you describe it's movements, sorry I didn't read the rest of the responses. Did it move in a random way or did it's movement have a strange order to it, such as moving straight down the hallway (in a perfect straight line) as if it were constrained to that line only?

Yeah, it just moved perfecly straight. Sorry, but I havent been here in awhile and havent read this. Also, it was floating a fre inches from the ground. I don't really remember making weird movements.

Wow, I have only recently thought I'd see if for other people, these things tend to move in order. Someone I know told me about a time when he had sleep paralysis, but he thought it was a demon, but he described that it came toward him down the hallway in a perfect straight line and when it turned into his bedroom it turned in a perfect corner way if that makes sense (what he saw was a black hooded figure, about a foot off the ground too). I get sleep paralysis and have seen some strange things but I have noticed that they move in a strange perfect order, like as if they aren't natural or are programmed. People who report alien abduction experiences also sometimes tend to describe that the aliens seem to move quite rigidly or stiff. I have no idea what I think about it, just pondering different/similar characteristics of such experiences.

Savvy?

Maybe it's been around more than once but you only SAW it just the one time.
