The Fog, The Dog, And The Man


This is the very first encounter with a supernatural being I have ever had. I had a minor one before this, involving a small doll that I had laying on my bed (I left the room, came back, and the doll had been flung across the room.)

When I was around 6, I used to have a small, wooden chest-of-drawers across from my bed. One summer Wednesday night, as I returned from dance practice, I went into my room, put my pajamas on, and went to bed, although I was excited due to the fact that my recital was coming up soon so I couldn't sleep. After about an hour of sleeplessly laying in my bed, the second nearest to the top drawer

Slid open, and a strange, ominous looking green fog appeared to be coming out of it. I was terrified, and stayed completely still and silent. After about 3-4 minutes of nothing but fog, I heard the most pained, ghastly moan coming from the drawer, and then I noticed a man-like figure come out of the drawer. I was even more terrified then.

After about 8-10 minutes of this, it all dissappeared in a swirl of green and black fog. I couldn't sleep in my own room for weeks. My mom noticed this and asked me what is wrong, and I told her the entire story. She replied with "it's just a dream honey, now go to bed." Although I struggled with her about the fact that I was wide awake throughout the entire experience, she still didn't believe me.

Several weeks after this experience, I noticed a shadow of a pure black cat with shining red eyes that would run in and out of my room each night around 9:30.

And, now, recently I hear dogs barking outside my window each night. When I look outside my window, nothing is their. However, sometimes if I go outside, I will see a pure black dog with a red

Collar which will look at me, but never barks. It has pointed ears, and a long, bushy tail, it almost seems wolflike. I see the same dog in my dreams alot, which brings me to another thing that appears in my dreams alot.

Many times in my dreams ever since I was small, I have seen a very pale man with jet black hair, white skin, and red eyes. Were a normal person's eyes would be white, his are black. I sometimes see him with either a pet raven or a raven's wings. He has never harmed me in my dreams though, and is actually very kind and helpful. He never speaks, however. Also, one last thing, once when I was smaller I remember something opening the door and me looking and seeing that man that appears in my dreams...

I would very much appreciate it if someone could explain this for me. If it helps, I should most likely add that I live in Mount Juliet Tn, on an old Indian reservation. Well, my house was built on it anyway. Thank you.

Am I understanding correctly that the fog & man thing only happened once when you were six? It was not the man you see with a raven? You started seeing the cat when you were six & still see it now, always at the same time of night? Do I have all that right? Also, I know it can be hard to remember from several years ago, but do you think you saw the man at your door first or saw him in your dreams first? I think that will be important in figuring things out. Lastly, how old are you now?

I am not sure that being on a former reservation is relevant, but if you feel it might be I suggest you read the myths associated with the tribe (s) that were corralled there & try to find out what these animals symbolize in that culture.
