So it was Oct 11th 2011. I am in my bed with my wife and 2 year old daughter. About 530 am. My alarm goes off. So I reach and turn it off and I turn and look to our doorway and there stands a dark figure. Now keep in mind that the bedroom is pretty dark.
So this figure appears to be wearing a cowboy hat and a long coat. No significant details just an outline, which was very defined. But it was almost as if the figure was transparent. Like looking at something through a tinted window. So all I can do is just stare and try to figure out what in the hell it is. Whether it's a spirit, a ghost or just a part of my imagination.
Well the staring goes on for about 45 seconds, and he is facing our direction. Not sure who or what he was looking at though. Just as my eyes become focused he started to just slowly disappear. He did not move or walk away, he just simply slowly evaporated. And then he was gone. I am still not sure what it was. Was it me or was it real? So I have read similar experiences and now I don't feel so crazy.
No one in my family has died yet and I pray that nobody does. This is the first time seeing this figure for me. I want to tell my wife but I know she will freak out. I would like to think that it was a guardian angel or something like that. The death thing freaks me out a little bit. But the cool part about it was that I was not scared. I mean when I hear other peoples stories it gives me chill bumps and I think to myself, if that was me I would have crapped myself. This was not like that at all. It was a staring contest. Only I had no idea who it was or what it could have wanted. I wish I knew. Not knowing the purpose of the visit is worse than the actual encounter.
