Besides the traditional ghost sightings and encounters we have always read or heard about, there’s also a differant type of “encounter” that some people are unfortunate enough to have. They’re called shadow people. Most times, these encounters are not violant or direct, but there are some cases where they do become a direct contact type of situation. I personaly have never had any violant or direct contact from any of these entities. There’s only been maybe 3 times over a one year period at my house where I’ve had any kind of sightings of these shadow beaings. Most of the time I’ll end up catching sight of one of these things just outside my direct line of sight…usualy passing in front of a doorway or I’ll see one as it is walking down the hallway.
All of these sightings have only lasted a few seconds at best. Why do I think these were shadow people? Only because whenever I did catch sight of one, it would always appear in a distinct humanoid form. I could always make out legs, arms and usualy a head. This entity (or entities?) always appeared to look like a shadow that was not completely dark. Here’s an excerpt of a story I thaught was pretty interesting, about a persons full fledged encounter with one of these shadow beaings…
“This past February 2008 I had a strange and somewhat terrifying experience in room xxx at a casino in Michigan. In the suite was my brother and his wife, me and my children ages 8 and 9. I awoke around 3:30 in the morning to the sensation of a pressure on my side, kind of pushing me down. I thought it might be one of my daughters pushing me down. I raised my arm out to try to push off whatever was on top of me. I felt something substantial, but definitely not either one of my kids.
It was at that time I began to get frightened. I was lying on my side, so I turned my head to my right shoulder to get a glimpse of what was on top of me. I saw a large, dark funnel of no substantial shape. I heard a mocking laugh. I struggled to no avail. I decided to let the entity know that they should get off of me in the name of Jesus Christ. The funnel suddenly hit the ceiling and disappeared.
There I was, very frightened, hoping it was a dream. I decided to switch sides on the bed. I woke nobody up, as I felt like my sister-in-law would think I was nuts and I didn’t want to scare my kids. So I tried going back to sleep. This is when I felt hands all over the front of me, pushing and pulling. I knew I was sleeping when the second attack began as the sensations began to wake me up. I began to cry out, and this woke my sister-in-law. She said she looked over at me in bed and saw that I had a dark figure over me with its “arms” wrapped around me. My brother then heard my cry, turned on the light and asked me if I was okay. I told him that I was definitely not okay. My sister-in-law told my brother what I saw, and I told him what I experienced. Unfortunately, we were looking at another night in the same room already paid for. Thus, I didn’t sleep and basically played “night watchmen”. I was ready with my camera should the entity return.”
That’s one encounter I don’t think I would have liked to experiance!
If you’ve had a simular type of encounter, post it here.
