Snake Shadows On My Wall

 

I grew up in a very haunted house. I have had countless paranormal experiences but one of the first ones is still very vivid in my memory. I used to always see shadow people, but this encounter was very different. I was very little, maybe 3 or 4 years old at the most, yet I still remember it like it was yesterday. I would wake up in the middle of the night and look at my wall, and up high on the wall, close to where the wall met the ceiling, I would see a shadow about a foot long that I would call a "snake" because I didn't know how else to describe it at that age. It was an almost sausage shaped, brownish black shadow and it appeared to be moving back and forth across the wall. It was completely bizarre. I saw this for the longest time, just about every night, and I was very frightened by it. I remember one night, the usual shadow was joined by another one, only this one was dark black; blacker than the rest of the darkness around me.

I told my mom that I was seeing "snakes" in my room, and she thought I was just dreaming. But one night, she was sleeping in my room with me, possibly because I had a nightmare or something, and she saw the same thing. She still talks about it to this day and describes it the exact same way I do. We haven't seen it in years but I have never heard of this from anyone else and I am always wondering if anyone else has experienced this as well.

If anyone has experienced something similar, please let me know, because I would love to know that my mom and I are not the only ones.

I did consider this for a while, but I had heavier curtains back then so I don't think it was a shadow from outside, also it looked like a shadowy, dark mass in the room, not just a shadow on the wall.

Hi Everyhour,

Have the both of you ruled out something outside or inside the room casting odd shadows? A tree branch or washing hanging on the clothesline, for example, might cast a moving shadow on your roof and wall. 😊

It was so long ago, I don't know if anyone my family knew died at that point, at least I don't think they did, but that is interesting. I can ask relatives if anything happened during that time.

Brownish black showdown... Sausage shaped and moving back and forth across the wall... Can I ask if anyone in your family or people around your family passed away that period? Why I asked is, it could be what people say as a "Death" or "Grim Ripper", a spirit which brings other spirits to the other side. Well I have not experienced any of these but I did read some reports and heard people talking about that... Not sure what exactly that is but there are lots of believes and explanation by other people as well.
