Grim reaper-like visitation

Hoping this is the right place to post this? Looking for any insight or advice to help me make sense of my experience. So, I have always had unusual or unexplainable occurrences happen throughout my life. I apparently told my parents as a young child that there were people sitting on my bed all the time.

I have a very strong ability to read negative vibes from a person almost automatic. I sense things before they happen. Almost weekly I have events while trying to sleep occur such as my bed being shook, my pillow being ripped out from under my head. I awake to the feeling of someone laying beside me or someone sitting on the edge of my bed. But these things have never instilled any type of fear in me, never. I have always remained feeling safe, annoyed maybe but safe.
Anyways, about a month ago I was asleep and suddenly woke up to see a dark cloaked hooded figure standing at the foot of my bed. His face and hands were very prominent and skeletal. He said nothing, took a step backwards into my curtains and almost immediately dissipated. I was terrified, I jumped out of bed, turned on the lights and TV and was shaking.

I had never experienced an encounter that made me feel fearful until now. I did all the googling I could and tried to understand it. Kind of forgot about it until last night! I was asleep I think? but I remember clear as day hearing a male voice say "open your eyes" repeated 3times. I then opened my eyes and this grim reaper looking figure was right there, probably an arms length away this time. He again backed up and started to disappear but it took much longer this time then the last for him to go away.

I'm not sure why but I automatically looked at the clock which read 4:22am. I was wide awake, left my room and have been awake since. Again I feel fear from this figure, something I have never experienced from an encounter. Is this normal to have a visitation twice in a month from this type of being? I'm really hoping someone can offer some insight? I feel an irritable almost frantic emotion today, very uneasy and I can't explain it.

I fondly remember a presence as a child all the way through young adulthood, the unique thing about it is that there was this overwhelming sense of calm and something n my head saying, "that's your grandfather making sure you're ok". It could be dark in the room and I'd feel someone sit on the edge of the bed, then they'd get up and leave. I'd immediately feel relieved of anything plaguing my anxious boy thoughts at the time.  Boy, I sure could use that, these days.  Writing that made me cry

It sounds like you are above the normal in psychic sensitivity. From all the stories and theories I've heard, it seems likely to me that this so-called Grim Reaper type thing is something many have seen and perhaps exists as an archetype in our human collective subconscious. Why you in particular experienced it at this time I have no way of knowing from afar. Just work on keeping your overall mental well-being in trim.

If a story takes place while falling asleep or being awakened I have to suggest hypnopompic/hypnagogic hallucinations. Please google those terms, you may get some answers.

I have to agree with SS above,different to seeing grim reaper entities when wide awake as I have.I have a theory that these are a projection of a premonition of doom,maybe only visible to extra sensitive people.

I too am very intuitive about people, whether they are positive or negative, credible or not, my grandmother called it a gift i just see it as being part of my hyper sensitive nervous issues, just perception. When just falling asleep or waking up the brain can and does do some wild games sometimes,  just last night i was deeply out and nubnub the cat who loves to hop and dart around the room and on us even while sleeping which im used to was up to mischief. last night i was deeply out and nub jumped on my arm but this time it didnt register it was just my cat, i jumped up screaming very scared...
