Black cloaked figure

This happened a few years ago and I have read lots of things similar since. Until this took place I had very little interest in the paranormal.

Around 1 am I had decided it was time to go to bed, I went to switch off the living room lights when, from the centre of the room, I saw in perfect detail a figure wearing a black robe, I could see every crease and bump in this thing's robe in the few seconds it was visible.
It was around 7 feet tall, perhaps slightly less as I could be exaggerating, I noticed it had a barely visible, white, mask type face in the deep recesses of its large hood. The garb it was wearing was oversized and looked like something a medieval monk might have worn.

I would be very interested to hear any information on this thing as it has since been seen by others in the same house and has been photographed multiple times, this seemed to get infinitely more prevalent after buying and using a Ouija board.

Is it dangerous to continue to use the board?

I can see why this event was so striking to you. But unfortunately, although I believe the Ouija board (actually the collective psychic focusing by multiple individuals) can greatly increase the amount of paranormal phenomena in the environment, the smart people say such techniques should not be used because of the risk of malevolent entities getting involved.

The thing we saw didn't have a white mask face. It didn't have any face. Just darkness. About as tall, though.  I think as far as Ouija, EVP, etc. goes, people do get themselves all worked up.  Could they manifest phenomena because of it? Sure.  And the more people involved who get all freaked out, the better the chances of that happening.  My advice is that if you did something and then experienced phenomena that you want to go away...quit doing that.  You might even have to do some sort of banishment to get rid of it.

I saw that black hooded entity once in a lucid dream, it was standing on my right side in room in front of window and it was very creepy, it has no face and it was built of some transparent dark material. Interesting fact is that lots of people see that hooded entity when they open eyes while they have sleep paralysis,or they see the Hatman. Nobody knows who this is and why is watching us...its mistery..

Souls of black by Testament, I totally had that record. Did it have a hat?  Just wondering because there is some Dark Watcher thing that I heard about.  Its a California / big sur thing...they have hats
