Scary Black Mass

 

This happened a few summers ago, and I am still very scared about seeing it.

My mom told my brother and I that it was our turn to take the trash out. Normally, I'm not very afraid of the dark, especially since my brother was going to be with me, but for some reason I had a very bad feeling.

To explain how far we have to walk away from the house to get to our trash can, I'll tell you the basic lay-out of my family's property. We have a two story house at the very front of our land, and a small backyard. Then there is a wooden fence with no door, and yet another backyard with a shed in the far-left corner, a garden in the left corner closest if you walked to the back, and the trash can is on the dirt beside the street, a little ways behind the shed.

So, my brother and I gathered up the trash and went out without turning the light on in the back, figuring it would be fine. We started walking back and I felt even worse. Apparently it was showing on my face in the dim moonlight because my brother asked me what was wrong. I didn't want to worry him, so I replied simply; "Nothing."

We got to the "Second backyard" and I wanted to turn and run. I'm not usually a flight person, I'm more of a fight person. But for some reason, my brain was screaming for me to run. My brother seemed completely oblivious and didn't seem to feel a thing. I was walking faster than him and got to the trash can first. And then I saw something weird.

There was this small black mass, with no eyes, standing on our trash can. The better way I can describe it was that it was about 3 feet tall, and almost comical, with the way it looked. Apparently, it wasn't looking at me, because it turned and grinned at me. And it wasn't a normal "Haha, hey, how's it going?" grin. It was an insane, malicious "I want to hurt you." grin. It dropped down from the trash can and stared at me for a few moments and then turned again, running across the street and disappearing into some bushes.

My brother came up and asked me what was wrong and I told him that we had forgotten the key to unlock the trash can. I put the bags that were in my hands down and bolted for my house, happy to get away from there. I felt really bad for leaving my brother behind and was really scared, and, just in case, I grabbed a long stick that I kept behind my door upstairs for protection and ran back out, unlocking the trash.

I have been scared of it since, and am very afraid to go out back to the trashcan now at night. It's been gone for a while, but my sister told me to not think about it.

I read online that it might have been a shadow spirit, but I've never heard of one that is that small though. I'm wondering if I was hallucinating and being weird, or if it was actually something.

This was a fascinating read, I also think your reaction before you saw this thing is interesting,

You could not possably of predicted that, yet on some other level you picked up on the fact that something was not quite right, Intuitive behaviours have no real scientifc explanation, I would simply put it down to an experience, now you know that the spirit world is real it will make you look at life with a more open mind,

Peace.

Right... Thank you so much. I appreciate it a lot. I'll try to avoid it if it shows up again. 😊

I really don't think that it was going to attack you or your brother. I actually feel like it didn't want to be seen at all. The energy that we assigned to evil is just a lower vibration energy. That is what we call it - evil. Now we call it that for a reason. Most of those entities aren't very nice but every now and then you come across one who just wants to be left alone. If he comes back or you feel him again just avoid him so he doesn't get defensive.

[at] WaitingForDaybreak:

Yeah, not my brightest moment of the lightbulbs... ^^" I really regret doing that, especially since it could have attacked my brother.

I researched the property and nothing's really popped up. There was a few disturbances from mass anger breakouts, but nothing else really popped out that seemed important. My mother tends to help spirits, but they're completely different from what that thing was, because I can feel them once in a while. I hope I can learn what that thing was some day.

This is an important lesson for you. In my opinion, whenever you or anyone has an incredibly bad feeling, trust it! I don't think it was too wise to leave your brother out there alone, but fear can make you not think unclear at times. But I do believe you saw something, and maybe you should try and learn about it and not so much fear it. Do research on your property, ask your family if they've had any experiences. You may learn something new! Thank you for the story, it was very interesting. ❤

[at] redphx:

I never really thought of that... Thank you. I feel kind of bad now. It's sorta like I judged him... Poor thing...

[at] bacchaegrl:

XD Yeah, I felt sorta bad about running without telling my brother the full reason. I asked him if he saw anything weird and he said he saw a weird-looking dog. We get some pretty scruffy ones out where I am, but apparently it looked almost red in the dark. I was wondering after that if maybe the thing I saw that night could shift shapes or looked different to different people. I just asked him yesterday about that, so...

Good story, but your poor brother! You left him out there! Well, at least you came back. Did he say he saw anything?

well he probably felt that way because he is that way. He isn't evil. His energy is perceived as being heavy because he must have been born into the lower vibrations. He could have been a demonic entity of some kind based on the vibration level. I know a very nice demon. His energy can be offputting but that is just how he is. He has never harmed anyone that didn't deserve it. They can't change their energy that is who they are. But like I said I really don't think you have anything to worry about.

[at] honsolo26:
You've really seen something like it? I'm interested on hearing what you have to say about it. And if you have any pictures of what you saw or videos or anything, I would really appreciate seeing them.

😆 Trust me, seeing it once was enough to last me a long time. If I see it again, I'm picking up my feet and running. 😆

Hmm... I've never seen one 3 ft. But I have seen something somewhat the same. I "study" these kind of things so you can ask me anything.
P.S. Don't try to confront it again if you see it. 😉

[at] redphx:

Hmmmm... I'm not sure if I've necessarily seen all of them. And a fae... I'm not sure if it was a fae. Fae don't usually scare the crap outta me like that. XD
See, and the energy confused me. It felt scary, and usually I depend on energy to tell me about something, especially like that. I am very sensitive to energy and my family has a running case of being sensitive to supernatural things, such as faeries and stuff. And the strange thing is, is that it seemed evil, but not the kind of evil that wants to hurt you. It was something that I had never felt before. I can usually get a small gist of a person and how they are feeling by energy, but this thing... I'm not really even sure what it was.

Have you seen all the nature spirits? There are dark ones too like the one you described. It could also be some kind of fae. LOL. You caught it doing something it wasn't supposed to. Then I really do think that he won't come back. Even though he was scary looking and felt bad that could have just been his energy and he really doesn't want to harm you. If he did I think that he would have.

[at] xxVamp:
I've told my sister, and, as she said, I should stop thinking about it in case it comes back.

[at] redphx:

See, and I've seen nature spirits before, and most of them I find are quite beautiful, especially tree spirits. But this thing didn't seem afraid of me, it, well, let me put it this way: It almost seemed like a child who had been caught with it's hand in the cookie jar and was trying to be cute even when it isn't to get it's way. It was very frightening, and I am very, very sure that it wasn't a nature spirit.

I think you saw a nature spirit of some kind. I think he was more afraid of you because you saw him. You aren't supposed to. I don't think he will ever be back there and I don't think you have anything to worry about going forward.

I was hoping it was a shadow spirit... And I really hope it doesn't show up again either. My sister has started doing protection spells for me whenever I go out, and, like I said, I haven't seen it, but it's still really creepy to think about.

[at] Gizzy:
No, I have definitely not told my parents about it, I don't want to scare them, and I've only told my sister. I asked if my brother felt weird about going out that night and he said he felt perfectly fine. He also said that he had this weird feeling that there was an animal back there of some sort, but he passed it off as an owl or something.

[at] Robertar:
😆 😆 That may have just brightened my day. Thank you for that. 😆

I agree with Just curious on this one. Please ignore the post that warn you of the demonic, they haven't anything to go on and no basis in the experience you've put forth.

Shadow spirits can be quite dangerous. Caues some of them are demonic. Luckily it ran away. If I were you I would leave the house, but that's just me... 😐

Tell them the story about Jesus. ScaryMalicousEntities really like that. Especially the little ones.

Hi Michiko,

I agree with JustCurious I don't believe you were hallucinating you may just have come accross a passing spirit. It may never come back again but I understand that this experience has scared you. I also agree with the advice given as just by standing strong and telling it to leave may do the trick. Have you tried talking to your parents or your brother? As you may be thinking he could tell there was something wrong with you, when maybe he had his own feelings walking out that night.

I don't think you were hallucinating at all. Shadow spirits (and spirits in general for that manner) can chose the shape and form that they manifest in to show themselves to you.

I would say this is possibly just a spirit that happened to be there the one time when you took the trash out and that it may not show up again and that you are probably safe.

However I would be prepared if I were you to tell it to leave and to not give you any harm if you ever see it again. However be ready for that because the spirit may not like being told that or it may respect your wishes and leave.

Peace
JustCurious
