The Black Lady Figure


Let me start again with some more info. I do live in the same place as mentioned in my previous story. For those of you who haven't read "Little Girl: Jane" I'll let you know that I can and very often do see spirits. This story starts off 2 days before I actually see the Black Figure.

One night, I was lying on my bed reading with my dog at my side. My room is set up so that my bed is under a window with the door across the room. My sister sleeps pretty much directly in front of the door. While I was reading, my dog, Barbie, startled awake. She jumped off of my bed and ran to the door. When she got a foot from the door (3 or 4 feet from my bed) she began barking uncontrollably. I tried to get her to come back to me but she didn't even notice my command. About 2 minutes into her barking she whimpered and flew back 4 feet and slammed into the side of my bed, like she had been kicked. I quickly grabbed her off the floor where she lay motionless and dove under my covers holding her close to my side. After about 5 minutes I heard footsteps that led away from my room and Barbie finally started breathing normally again. I was so afraid. I didn't sleep at all that night.

The next night, nothing happened. Not a single sound out of the ordinary, although I knew something was there, watching like it had been before. This is where we come to the night after this.

I had fallen asleep at about 8pm. I woke up, startled by something that I still don't know, and I sat up. Barbie was awake, cowering to the corner of my bed, farthest from the door. She didn't make a single sound. I was afraid but I knew I had to look. I turned my head slowly afraid of what I might see. A tall black figure was standing in my door way watching my sister sleep. This...figure, I knew it was a female, it just had that presence that you could feel that it was a woman. She had long black hair that seemed to make her dress as well. She herself was pale almost transparent. She had to facial features except 2 large black orbs where her eyes should have been. I couldn't look away. She seemed to hold my gaze. Just then, my phone rang from a text. I knew just then that something bad could happen. She looked over at me. And stared for about 5minutes. It felt like hours that she made me look into her eyes until she turned and left the room. She moved with a gracefulness expected of a princess. She seemed to almost float. She moved down the hall and vanished.

I will never forget this encounter. Ever since she saw me, and I think she knew I could see her, she hasn't returned. I don't know who or what she is. And I hope she doesn't come back.

Please if you have any similar encounters or stories, share them with me. I not only welcome but encourage questions.

Much Love

Samantha H.

This is one scary spirit, and not just because she had an eerily long stare. The fact that she was able to physically affect your dog is frightening, albeit I'm sure she was pissed that your dog was barking so much at her. Still, this is not a safe situation. If she can do this to your dog, I shudder to think what she might be capable of if she becomes angry. I agree with the other posters who advise you to seek ways to get rid of this spirit. It would be for the best. You could research cleansing methods or perhaps even request a priest (I don't know if you're religious) to perform a rite of some sort. Either way, I'm glad that she hasn't reappeared and I hope that she never does. Stay safe.

Oh jeez! Where to start!? Okay the fact this thing kicked your dog just upsets me! And I seriously would have needed a change of sheets and underwear if I had a staring moment with it afterwards!

I hope you can do the cleansing ritual that rook has posted up here, I am sure it will help a lot.

Has your sister mentioned having weird dreams or anything? I wonder because the dog kicker (still upsets me) was watching her sleep you know?

Keep us posted ❤

Have you spoken to your sister, and/or talked to your Mother about this incident? It may be a good place to start...

How long ago did this happen? Has Jane 'visited' again or have you 'seen' this figure again? Or have you just felt it's presence?

I'm sorry that it seems your Dog was kicked... Have there been any other 'visits' that have had 'physical touches' that have happened? I know I'm asking a lot of questions... But knowledge is power and any information could help you figure out what is going on.

See if your Mother and Sister... Heck your whole Family... Will help you try the following;

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

Please keep us updated, there are many folks here and together perhaps we can put our heads together figure out what's going on in your home.

have to agree with the other comments here get rid of this thing asap! Any way you can.
Look up investigation teams in your area or mediums but please check into there backgrounds before contacting them make sure that they are able to help you a honest person will give you contacts of pepople they have helped in the past.
For some reason and I can't say why but I can't get the thought out of my head that this shadow figure and jane are connected in some way, could it be her family?
I hope you get this thing out of your home soon.
Please keep this up to date if you can

you come in these threads swinging, but never give reasons for your doubt. Show some intelligence by picking apart the story themselves, instead of posting as if the author is hear to convince only you.
Try this...
I don't believe your story, and here is why...
I have many doubts in this story, and here is why...

If you can see spirits often you should try to learn how to control it or if you want even becom a physic medium or something?

Everything that was said here is true. But I would be pissed about my dog getting kick! But, of course, I would also pee in my pants before I would confront that thing. Especially if my gut was screaming at me not to. But boy would I glare the hell out of it! Mmmm, that might not be a good thing also. Well, then I would hope that karma would catch up with it, and as the saying goes, paybacks are um, a female dog! *this site won't let me use the word b*tches* Hope your dog is okay.

I agree with the previous posters. This freak must go. There is no place anywhere for an animal abuser. I can't stress it strongly enough, get rid of it ASAP!

I think everyone has the right of things here. Once a spirit (or soul, or ghost, or demon) starts messing with your family, something needs to be done. (Your poor dog!)

But, PLEASE, if you're going to do something, consult others who are reliably versed in whatever method you choose. I know you've had a lot of experience, so you already know that, but I thought I'd toss in my two mother-hen cents. 😉

Whatever you do, be careful.

I agree with Indigo and Geetha. Talk to your mother about this so you can get help to get rid of this thing. There is also a lot of people on this site who can help you. Thank you for sharing

Indigo is right about getting rid of the spirit. If it was powerful enough to kick your dog across the room then it is powerful enough to hurt you or your sister. Another thing is, you mentioned that the thing was staring at your sister, find out if your sister felt or seen this thing. Personally, I would find ways to get rid of this thing.

Sweetie, there is not one thing good on this side or the other that would kick your dog in that manner or that hard. Don't ever forget that. Do you honestly think a safe spirit would do that to your dog? Get rid of that spirit as soon as possible.

I have had an experience like this.
One day I was sitting on my chair in the living room, and out of the corner of my eye I saw a black figure that you could clearly make out as a man.
I then looked to see what it was, and as soon as I glanced over, you could see it step to the side. Then it vanished. I then told my mom about it and she said she also saw the exact same thing moments ago.

I'm glad she hasn't came back... But you should ask someone about whatever kicked your dog, poor thing! Did you ever tell anyone about this? Maybe you should, just to make sure nothing else bad will happen. 😁 😊
