For the first time in my adult life, on Friday June 14, 2013 shortly after 10:00 p.m. I saw a 4 foot (give to take a few inches) solid black shadow person. My children were in their rooms playing computer games and my pets were with my children. I had been in my bedroom all evening reading and what not when I decided to go into my kitchen to get a glass of water. The only lights on were the ones in my bedroom and in my children bedrooms.
I walked through the hall in my dining room which was dark and made a left into my dark kitchen and this is when I saw it. I was facing the wall about 10 feet away from it, where my fridge, washer dryer, freezer are located when this four foot two dimensional solid black shadow came from the left that is where my sun-room is. It was hovering a few inches off the tile floor. It turned its body into a 45 degree angle then it turned again facing the door which leads into my basement. It zoomed and it vanished at the door.
At that moment I was too stunned to feel any fear, I rubbed my eyes in the dark in disbelief. This thing had no features but I could see the outline of the right arm in some long sleeve. It was wearing something long and loose and I couldn't tell if it was male or female. The head was not round and defined and I think it had something over the head. This thing had a kind of triangle shape to it. The door leading into a small landing which goes into the basement was half closed and this thing vanished at the door.
My kitchen is in the center of the house so there aren't any windows leading to the outside. There are 3 walls; on one wall the door leads to a landing, garage, straight down the stairs to the basement. The other wall has a glass door that leads to my sun-room. The sun-room is in the back of the house facing my back garden. Behind my sun-room there are no streets or roads or vehicles, only gardens. The kitchen was dark but this thing was way darker. Like I said I didn't feel any fear at that moment. So I turned on the lights and I tried to find a logical explanation to no avail. My goodness the thing was fast.
The next day, I search websites for information and there are many theories and I read something on smudging. On Saturday I bought some sage, burned it in a candle dish and I walked through every room, closets and garage. Nothing major has happened since but I am spooked. What on earth was that thing?
I remember when I was around 4 or 5 years of age, I would see shadows on the walls changing shapes at night which terrified me so I stopped looking at the shadows and I tried to convince myself that it was all my imagination. These shadows didn't fly across the room though.
Looking back at my life I realize that I had some paranormal experiences and I used denial as a coping mechanism. I didn't want to believe in it because it terrified me and I avoided anything paranormal. I didn't tell my children about the black shadow because I don't want to spook them but my husband knows. My husband and I will be using Rook's cleansing method this week and hope and pray that it works.
Now I am having nightmares and my own screaming woke me up this morning around 4:00 a.m. My heart was pounding and I was scared but I couldn't remember the dream. I used to enjoy sleeping in a pitch black room without a night light, which used to scare my ex-husband, not anymore, I can't even walked through dark halls anymore. We still hear someone moving about the house but the loud bangs have stopped, I hope and pray that it doesn't escalate. My cats jump 2 feet into the air when we make an abrupt movement or noise. I had cats all my life and I have never seen cats this frightened.
I will be so grateful for your opinion and advise. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and God Bless.
