I've had trouble posting this story on here before because of log in reasons. Anyway, yayy! I can post now. This story is a compilation of all the experiences I've had with shadow people.
Other than feeling creepy things growing up I didn't have an experience with the paranormal until we moved from Wyoming back to Memphis, TN.
We couldn't move into a house right away, so we found a condo by my grandparent's house. I could ride my bike to their house, that's how close we were.
I was twelve years old and we moved into the condo in January. I'm not sure when I started noticing things, but a few different experiences have been stuck in my mind.
I had the biggest room in the condo. My bed was in the middle of the wall with three windows on the left side and my closet and one window on the wall to the right. My books and TV were on an entertainment center opposite of my bed. My door was to the left of this entertainment center. One night I was laying in bed waiting to fall asleep watching the clock glow on the VCR in front of me.
Looking back I always tried to brush it off as the clock not being set and just blinking at me. But over time I completely forgot about it until more things started happening to me and then I remembered it clearly. As I said, I was watching the clock when all the sudden it disappeared. It was completely black. And then it appeared again. The blackness came from the left and then moved to the right, as if someone had walked in front of it. I looked to the right of my bed and was overcome with fear. I felt like someone was looking down at me. I rolled over and fell asleep.
There was a corner between the entertainment center and my closet, at night I felt like something was sitting there watching me sleep. Whenever I walked down the stairs I would have to put my back against the wall and look behind me or else I would feel like I was being pushed down the stairs.
Now the next part, I've only found one other person ever to have experienced this. And if you have, please tell me in a comment that you have experienced this too. It was late at night and I was reading harry potter with my bedside light on. All the sudden I felt like I was in a trance and the page disappeared in front of me. Everything was white. I heard a thousand voices screaming and shouting. They sounded like the voices of people in hell. I saw a mans face with a top hat and he was shouting at me above all the voices, but I couldn't understand what he was saying. And I felt like I couldn't breathe. And then I had to struggle to get out of it. And then I was back in my room. And everything was so quiet, but I could hear the voices echoing in my head. As I said I found one other person to have experienced this. He said that he sees the man with the top hat in shadow form and that there are two other shadow beings with him and they represent the father, the son, and the holy spirit. And that they're actually mentioned in the bible. I don't remember everything he told me about this and I don't have the email anymore.
Eventually we moved out and to a suburb of Memphis in MS right on the state line. Years later when I was eighteen I was in a horrible relationship with this guy. As usual we were fighting in his car on the street beside my house. I was sitting in the passenger seat, facing him in the driver seat. From where I was sitting I could see my neighbor's entryway and their outside light was on.
By this time in my life I had been wondering about the black blobs I saw from the corner of my eyes and found out that they could be shadow people. My then boyfriend was yelling at me or something when clearly not directly in front of me but to the side I could see a guy with a fedora hat on. But just his shadow. He had on a long coat. And a fedora hat. I saw his shadow on the wall of my neighbor's garage walking up their entryway into their house. Right before he entered their door I looked directly at him and he disappeared. There was a sinking feeling in my stomach. There were three young children in that house. All the sudden I wondered how often shadow people went into their house.
Months later I was in a different relationship, the one I'm still in, happily. My boyfriend and I were driving back to my house after going out somewhere. It was dark. As soon as we entered the neighborhood I had this intuitive feeling. I kept my eyes peeled for anything out of the ordinary. We were almost to my street. There was a sign that was yellow that said "slow...children at play" and it was right beside someone's drive way. I thought I could see some guy limping between their cars. He was going to come to the sidewalk.
We were coming upon the sign when all the sudden this guy, who was actually a shadow person, leaned out and put his head in front of the sign. "OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT?!" I yelled, I was looking right at this thing. I knew what it was I was just making sure my boyfriend saw it too. He didn't he drove past and was like "what? What is what? There's nothing there." he stopped beside my driveway. I told him what I saw and I was so scared. He said everything was fine and that he would wait to drive off until I got inside. I got out of the car and started walking to my garage.
It was windy and the streetlight threw shadows everywhere. But something in my bushes moved the opposite way. It was like a tentacle slapped out of the bushes. I jumped and started running back to his car. He yelled at me to go inside, because I think he saw that something scared me, so I ran inside.
A few months later my boyfriend and I were at the beach. We arrived and was all settled in. It got dark outside so we decided to go for a moonlit walk on the beach. We had flashlights. So we were walking out there. And we had paused to share a kiss. And continued walking. But when we did I was still looking up at him when I saw a shadow person out of the corner of my eye. I saw it looking up at the moon, standing in the water, but not very far. It was a few feet away from me and my boyfriend. I looked directly at it and it was gone. The water wasn't disturbed either.
About a month later or so I was in my boyfriend's house reading. He and his father were in the computer room across the hall from my boyfriend's bedroom. I was in his bedroom on his couch reading a book. The TV was in front of me and too the right, so I faced it. Out of the corner of my eye I could see a shadow blob move from a corner between two shelves to the other side of the computer desk where it was darker in the corner. It just flew through the air. I turned around and said "hello?" but I didn't get a response. I looked over to where it flew to but I didn't see anything darker than dark nor got any feelings from it. I just went back to reading.
I haven't had any other experiences. Personally, I like long reads of stories on this site, and decided to put all the stories together so that it would be longer.:) I hope you all enjoyed. And if any of you had the experience of the voices and the man in the top hat please tell me in a comment. Or in e mail
