Ask him for a dance then flirt with him. He'll freak out cos he's crap at dancing and flirting. Then knock his top hat off.

You are right to not show him fear but wrong to think you can get rid of him because he IS you. When you strike back you hit yourself. When he causes pain in your dream it is you who hurt yourself physically. Fortunately, it need not be like this...

The Shadow Man With a Top Hat represents a part of yourself with which you have not been able to reconcile. By appearance and by actions he may appear somewhat horrific but try not to be put off by that - because he is you (a part of you), after all. He represents the dark and brutal side of your nature and because you are usually quite the opposite of dark and brutal it is not a side that you are comfortable with and subsequently have sought to repress. As you know - you cannot run from him and ignoring him (ie attempts to repress him) won't make him go away and only make him angrier (who likes being ignored?) so accept him, engage with him in your dream, and listen to what he has to say. You are not a monster and you will find that neither is he.

As he (this part of you) exists only in dreams his presence and meaning is ultimately symbolic - so don't take what he says or does literally. He (and you) are not literally capable of stabbing, bashing, torture in real life but he can give you the power to do so figuratively because it is a big world out there and we all at times have to get emotionally dark and brutal to deal with it.

Metaphoric pain leads to metaphoric death which leads to metaphoric rebirth. Embrace life and embrace the whole of yourself. Things will be new and better for you soon...

Next time try to reason with him and tell him to step off... maybe he will.

I have seen shadow people since I was a young child. I have never felt any fear of them. I don't believe the ones I have seen meant me any harm. Just last night, around two in the morning, I woke up from a deep sleep and saw a shadow man in a fedora tipped down in a jaunty manner and and old-fashioned suit, similar to a double breasted suit from the forties. He was at my bedroom door, which was half open. He was peering around it at me and the instant I saw him, I felt him communicate that he was just checking on me. I felt no fear and went back to sleep. I don't know why he was checking on me, but I appreciated that someone was.

First off Moppy... Welcome to UM :st Hope you have a good time here, hope you stick around. Most of us are mostly harmless :devil: Read the site rules and take a stroll around :)

Now, on to your post. Since this is listed under dreams...

Make sure you are all ok medically first. You might have a sleeping problem or something that I'm sure other members can expand on.

Are you ok mentally? Has this guy shown up in the past when you were dealing with stress, an issue, that sort of thing? Sometimes folks seem to pick up imagery and stick with it. This is delicate, but perhaps something happened when you were 12 to trigger this sleeping/nightmare pattern?

If you are having nightmares this bad and often.. And you have been having this dream character repeat so often for such a span of time. Something is going on that is apparently distressing you IMO. Make sure you are ok with your health first.

From the less mundane side..

Learn a bit about lucid dreaming and meditation for sleeping. Try to keep yourself calm and get into control of your dreams if you can. You won't learn how to be a dream warrior in 30 days or anything like that. But you can learn how to relax your body for better physical rest, and perhaps how to interact with your dream state better. Or at least have it not craze your sleep so harshly.

Glad to know your health is good. You would be surprised at the amount of folks that come on UM and insist something must be paranormal and refuse to even consider their health as a potential problem. I'm rather surprised you weren't able to get medical help on it, I'd like to think that once you saw your sleep specialist as was tested, they might have at least prescribed you something to help you sleep.

I suppose a good question would be why do you think you are dreaming about this guy?

Dreams don't leave handprints on your neck, arms and legs. Are you being abused by someone?

I can help Moppy. You will have to enter a lucid state and defeat this. You are going to have to turn the tables on your nightmare and go after it. The hunted becomes the hunter. It will be a bit if a challenge, but if you are successful you will have relief. Let me know if you want to go for it and I will stick with you the entire time.

As for answers. Well there are several. Nightmares are exercise for the brain to practice fight or flight. If you are faced with a horrible scenario, you act quicker because you have dreamed about it. It's also a way to deal with internal conflicts. Unfortunately some can runaway from their normal function and can almost seem to have a life of their own ... Thought forms. Metaphysically you have a negative attachment. It doesn't matter if you believe in metaphysical things or not, the problem has a solution. It just takes some commitment on your part. Let me know if you want to go for it.

Don't be getting upset now. We are only teasing and don't mean any harm. Ask your family doctor to refer you to a psychologist; I believe those are the guys/gals you should be talking to and not us lunatics on here. Talking to a shrink doesn't mean you're crazy. We all need help at some time or another in understanding why we think certain things in certain ways. It WILL help you to talk to a professional; even if they don't have immediate answers. Talking, face to face to someone who understands is a problem shared and halved.

I wish you well!

When your dreams are terrorizing you, yes you will be under stress. It can go the other way too stress can trigger terrorizing dreams.

I Have a question.... my girlfriend has a dream with a similar man with a top hat, black eyes, cream colored skin, two followers. The leader ( man with the top hat) curly hair down to shoulders, old style dres with a tail coat on black pants and boots. follower 1 was a white dude hair past shoulders, strait, thin, and his jacket was a dark shade from blue or black. More of a new age of dress. the second follower was a bald short hair on the sides tan or white jacket blue jeans kinda stalky... the leader keeps saying they will get her at some point. Basically demanding her to come then she wakes from her dream and sees a shadow person bolt from the room.... I am a spritual person but shes miles from me and im searching for anything that can possibly aid in fixing this....
