I have been reading a lot of stories on this site and I finally decided to share one of mine. I live in a city called Pune in India. I live with my parents and younger sister. My sister is 22 and I am 26. Lately, we have been having weird experiences in my house, from voices to shadow people, to my cupboard being opened on its own, etc, etc. My sister once even saw a small ghostly child run through her room door and out the window. I have also been getting sleep paralysis very often. I've kind of got used to all these things now and it doesn't bother me much, however there is one particular story I'd like to share which my cousin brother and me experienced.
As previously mentioned, I used to have sleep paralysis quite often, I've read about sleep paralysis and it seems that it has nothing got to do with the paranormal. However, every time I had nightmares during sleep paralysis I would see a really tall shadow of a man wearing a long hat. I have never seen his face, just a tall shadow with big red eyes. I am a US IT Recruiter so I do night shifts. One night my cousin brother was staying at my place in my room alone. I was at work, but I was really tired so I decided to take a nap in my car. Now I am here, at my work place sleeping in my car and my brother was sleeping in my room. I had a horrible nightmare and woke up sweating and breathing heavily. It was around 3:00 AM. In this nightmare I saw me and my cousin sitting in my car bruised and bleeding since we had an accident, and my brother was trying to help me come to consciousness and in the back seat was the same tall shadow looking at us and laughing. That nightmare was scary enough, but what was more shocking is that, when I woke up my cousin texted me saying "bro". Usually when he texts me, I am like "hey what's up", but this time I was like "Don't tell me you so a nightmare". He was stunned and told me don't say a word I am coming to your office. He ran outta the house and drove down to my office. When we discussed what he saw, he told me he saw the SAME nightmare and the SAME person AT THE SAME TIME! Both of us apparently slept at the same time and woke up at the same time too.
I have never had an experience like this before and I am really curious to know if anyone on here has had such an experience too? I get this feeling that the "shadow man" was trying to get to me through my brothers dream, but I am no expert.
This is my first story on here, I hope it was an okay read, please let me know your thoughts on this and any similar experiences:)
Thanks in advance!
