skeptics first sighting.

38 posts in this topic

Hi to all. Before I begin I would just like to say before last night I was a big skeptic about anything to do with paranormal. I always mocked friends and family about it. Debated alot about it and never really thought much about. That's all just changed.

It started just last night around 11.30 pm. I was just getting ready for bed when suddenly my girlfriend started screaming. She is pregnant so my first thought was on the lines of that. I rushed up stairs and she said she heard something say her name. And she was shaking scared and upset. So I calmed her down you no being a hero and all. So we were talking for a bit when we fell asleep. At 2.33 am only just five hours ago. I woke up in a fright with my heart racing fast and for some reason gave my attention to the bathroom across the hall. And I could see a figure it was unusually dark like I could make out its shape like a person. I dident know weather to move or play like I was asleep but I was trying to wake up my girlfriend by any means possible without alerting this thing of my intention. She must have been tired. As soon as this thing moved towards me I jumped straight out of bed and was ready to defend myself not taking my eyes off it one bit when it went to the right off the hallway down the stairs. By this time my girlfriend woke to me in a fighting stance position so I told her to get up and made our way down to the car went to my brothers were I sit at this moment. I dont know what it was or if it wanted to hurt us or why I woke up in a fright. But I no I believe in it now this experience was a positive thing but not sure if we should go back home without more info on what it might be. If anyone can help please do so. Thank you.

How did it get past you?

I would report this to the police as you may have an intruder

And get put in a mad house. Police only attend real intruders not ghost intruders. And it never came into the room I was in it only came as far as the hallway and turned. Besides it wasn't human I know it wasn't. Thanks for your advice tho it still doesn't help me. Thank you

Chad, what did "it" confirm for you? The general existence of these types of experiences? Or something more specific. I just wrote to "nattan" on another post ('Please Help') that local colleges and universities often have skeptics/"ghost hunters" who will evaluate such a situation for free. Try the religion/psychology departments for the parapsychological specialists. Good luck.

I assume you must live in a rural-like setting with a least a small river or lake close by? This is usually the case imv. They get annoyed when people intrude on their patch at night. Perhaps it is someone else who is disturbing them after dark and you have caught the blame in some way.

That the entity was seen immediately after waking up has the features of a hypnopompic hallucination.

That is a sleep disorder also semi-related to sleep paralysis but sleep paralysis need not be present to still have a hypnagogic or hypnopompic hallucination.

Having your sleep broken up can cause them. Never heard of anyone sleeping a good solid full night of sleep and waking up to have these, it happens when "waking up during the middle of the night" or "when trying to fall asleep or back to sleep".

Only you yourself can decide if this applies in your case or if you had a real experience.

That's scary. How long have you lived in the place? It would be strange if you lived there a long time and something only happened now. Also, has there been any othet strange things? Not like big things like you just told us but smaller things that maybe you just dismissed.

A shadow completely turned around a die hard skeptic?

I do not think you were very hard core.

I remember an instance like this when I was young, same thing, dark shadow in the corner, as time rolls on it will fade away.

Ok, let me tell u my story. So my and my friend, we where playing and climbing a tree. After 30 mins, I got to the top. Soon, my friend did also. We looking into the woods, (that's was circling her house,) from the tree. Then I heard a crack in the bushes, wondering if it was her Great Dane, Sheep. I looked over there and saw, a pale pale white girl with white long nightgown on. I blinked, and the girl, dissapperd, I told my friend and we raced in to her house. So, that was kanda like ur time seeing a ghost.

Congratulations on knowing that the paranormal is real. The supernatural is as well.

Now your aware , they will never leave you alone.

Your open to all energies now, good and bad.

The one you saw is a bad energy because of your natural reaction to it.

A simple test to see how infected your house is, go lay down and try to go to sleep and while nodding off, look for and notice any shadows floating.

The first time a set a protection shield around my house, as soon as l had set the last crystal, l SAW a perfect silhouette of a man walk past my open sliding kitchen door. He was evil, solid black, and I knew he couldn't get in, protect yourself, investigate before you bring home a newborn.

I think a lot of ghost believers etc. use the excuse "I was a sceptic - until now.....".

But anyway it sounds identical to sleep paralysis. Which a sceptic would have thought of first.

I am 46 now, I was referring to when I was young, like around 22-26. Cannot specifically remember to be honest. But damn I hold my age well, trust me. :D

Honestly, I have seen the very same thing described by someone I know while I sat in a coroner saying dude WTF? Dark shape, darker than the dark around it all that.

You know when you come out of the sun, and entire areas are hard to see, or look away and still see an outline of something you wee just looking at? - car parks compensate for that with heavy lighting at the entrance (Note heaps more lights at the ramp when you pull into an undercover car park - this gives your eyes time to adjust) it has not been proven, but I personally believe it works in reverse too, and this is why people see these dark patches.

Also, it probably pays to mention I do not believe in an afterlife at all. I used to but not for the last few years or so.

Hey chad. Welcome to UM!

Your story is interesting - but I'm in the same boat as others here.

If you were a big skeptic, you would know that your experience could be easily explained by a number of known normal occurrences - the most obvious being something sleep or dream related, followed by something psychological. There's no reason to jump on the paranormal bandwagon here.

And for others praising chad for 'seeing the light' - it's just another baseless story with no evidence :no:

Sorry for the negative post - but you really contradict yourself and don't present anything compelling!

Indeed, sorry for the negative posts. Hostile skepticism is disguised cynicism. Definitely this post is an exercise in different degrees of skepticism.

People on here do make me laugh. I'm pretty if you'd have seen something like what was described you too would be freaking out. I too was a skeptic before the experiences I went through a few years ago. These shadow things are real and they are not just shadows. It's impossible to explain to people that have never experienced it. In this case I would get the house checked in case their was an intruder just to be on the safe side, and do not dismiss that your mind can play all sorts of messed up tricks on you.

It's impossible to explain any case paranormally. It's very possible to explain almost every case with a logical and known answer.

I used to be more open to the paranormal and ET visiting earth type stuff, but the more I research and read about experiences, the more skeptical I become. :cry:

ET somewhere else out there far away is what I want and hope to have proof of before I die!
