A simple thing like a door slaming is enough to get a- its just your imgaination.  In her case this is way more an actual presence.  Why she didn't go crazy or reported it or got it studied is beyond me.  What I know is that when you see or hear something that you can even doubt your eyes and ears-thats when you know there is something.  These happenings are NOT normal and are beyond science, trying to prove it or get is scientifically explored would be spectacular/
For people that have seen something concrete there needs no proof.  The more people that experience it the better that people can agree that there is someing trully out there.

If a mysterious and frightening dark man is regularly visiting you in your bedroom, leave the light on. I guarantee you there will be no more visitations.

The only times I've seen "shadow people" were during sleep paralysis "episodes". I haven't had sleep paralysis in about 6 months now though. When it does happen, and you see full bodied shadows walking toward you and choke you, then you hear the voices! Wow, it's one hell of a dream experience.

I'd like to see a "shadow person" outside of one of these dreams though. They don't seem nearly as aggressive. :]

Sleep paralysis can probably explain as much as 75% of strange/disturbing experiences in a context of waking up to a visitor in the room who doesn't seem to belong there for want of a better explanation :D An interesting avenue would be asking whether the person was aware of the 'shadow people' phenomenon prior to their experience. If we also rule out tricks of the light/making up stories for attention/angles of room objects etc there is probably 5% that is unexplainable which leaves wondering what the heck these things are!

Well 'scary' is subjective ain't it, I can think of many scarier prospects than coming into contact with a shadow person but I can also say I wouldn't be happy to meet its acquaintance and want to know what the heck it wants and why it came there! :D

I keep seeing shadowy beings in my bedroom late at night.

Quite often I wake up and see one of these things standing in my room in the dark.  A year or two ago I was lying on my right side and I rolled over to lie on my left side.  I did it very quickly and once I completed the manoeuvre I suddenly saw myself face to face with this shadowy thing with a pointed head (as though it was wearing a hood or a cowl).  At the same moment the thing just moved quickly away from the bed and flitted towards the wardrobe without making a sound.  I sat up and looked over at the wardrobe but there didn't seem to be anybody there.  In fact, I wasn't scared and I just lay back down and went back to sleep.

And just last week I woke in the night and saw a shadow thing leaning over my bedside cabinet at the side of the bed.  It seemed to have one arm slightly outstretched in front of it and I'm sure I quickly glimpsed its fingers as thought it was about to pick up an object from the bedside cabinet (there were a few coins, a lamp and a packet of Rennies on it).  Again I wasn't scared and when I looked away and then looked back again the thing wasn't there anymore and I just went back to sleep again.

The strange thing is that they don't scare me and I always go to bed, switch off the lamp and go to sleep without being scared.  In fact, for some reason most people who see these strange things almost never feel any fear.

Very weird.

I have read that encounters with shadow beings are getting more and more common and that there is actually no reason to fear them as they seem to be quite benign, whatever they are.

Here's a little tale from one of those two websites:

Q: Can you briefly relate one of the most unnerving or unsettling shadow people encounters you’ve come across?

Jason: In the past couple of months, I was contacted by a woman whose husband was dying of cancer. As the cancer progressed, he reported seeing shadow people standing around his bed. No one else could see them. Weeks from death, the number of shadow people in his room increased to more than 20. Although weak, he convinced his wife to take him to a hotel 150 miles away. When they got to the hotel room, he told his wife he wanted to go on the trip with her to hide from the shadow people, but they’d followed him. After praying for the entities to leave her husband, they vanished and he died.

I’ve come across a number of shadow people stories where they seemed to be waiting for someone to die. Frankly, that gives me the willies.

When I was a kid,there were no such things as shadow people,or the hatman .
I knew all the lore ,and these are relatively new ,in the total scheme of things .
So they do not register for me. No one I know has ever seen either .

Shadow people have actually been seen for a long time.

On one of those two links which I posted in the post above an investigator spoke to a man who used to see shadow people when he was a kid in the 1940s and books were written about them in the 1800s.

As a child I had multiple experiences with shadow people, and I only found out what they were a couple years ago. Even if people dont believe me, if you look up Rosemary E. Guiley, a paranormal expert studying this you'll find she has collected over 600 cases and whilst all vary, many have very similar themes, such as the feelings of terror when seeing them, the hat man, cloaked, red eyes sometimes yellow eyes etc. It isnt like shadow people are so well known that everyone imagines them with certain attributes.

The one I saw over 10 years ago did not wear a hat.

He was Hugh black as black can be. But I could see his eyes.

He stood next to my bed looking down on me I tried to move my face away from him to avoid looking at him but some kind of force pushed my head directly towards his face and I looked into his eyes he then placed his hand on my forehead.

Till this day I am so confused about the whole experience. I dont understand how everyone has seen shadow people with hats? my shadow guy did not have a hat or hair.

It is strange that so many people report seeing shadow people wearing hats.

The most common type of shadow man is the type which wears a 1930s gangster-style fedora and what appears to be a long cloak or something like a trench coat.  Even people who previously knew nothing about the phenomenon have witnessed the hat man, so it suggests that it is a real entity.  This entity often appears to have red eyes.

One theory, possibly the most popular, is that the shadow people are interdimensional beings.  Others say that they are demons.

Thanks for your reply :)
it may be just something we will never understand but one thing for sure is if he wanted to hurt me he could have done so. I was scared of him at the time but as I have gotten older I feel it was not there to scare me and feel the reason he force me to have eye contact with him was to check on me! but the i could be wrong.

It seems that they are observing us for some reason.  In a lot of cases I've read they seem to hate it when you notice them and if you do they suddenly move away very quickly.  And that's exactly what's happened to me when I've seen them in my room.  One was stood behind me when I was sleeping and when I woke I turned over and there it was at the side of the bed wearing a pointy hood.  As soon as I saw it if moved away very fast towards the wardrobe.  I thought to myself "That was strange" and then just went back to sleep.  It's as though they enjoy watching you whilst you sleep, which is quite a creepy thought.

They are just a new manifestation of an older phenomenon. Obviously if they were real creatures from the deep places of the spirit world, they would not care to keep up with fashion and project top hats. Nor would they be interested in poking and messing with people while they sleep. You would think a "demon" or "lower dimentional entity" would have better things to do then to mess with humans in very petty ways.
I assumed so ,but it wasn't widely discussed or written about prior to the 90s I guess. What were they called before ? Does anyone know ?

Miss me?
