11/04/2017 - 3 Shadow People & Hat man

Ok, so yesterday I experienced something horrifying which I have never felt or seen before. I was by myself in a huge park called, The Stoke Park, in Guildford, Surrey, England. My nationality is Norwegian, but I studied a BA in Guildford at that time. The reason for my visit alone was because I wanted to get a good look at the full moon that appeared that night. After listening to some Bjork music on headphones, I suddenly got an idea that I just had to record onto my cell phone so I would still remember it the next day.

I am recording my voice onto my cell phone when, all of a sudden, three large shadows appear in front of me from a distant, but only lasting for 1 second before they disappeared. My heart skipped a few beats for a second and I stopped the talking. When I got back to my senses, I thought to myself there must be a logical explanation to this. It was probably just some car lights or something reflecting shadows (even tho I did not see or hear a car, I was at an outside park full of grass). I started talking again about this idea, and I realize that I see something on my left side on the other end of the park coming towards me very slowly. I stopped talking again to get a closer look at this man-like energy lurking around in the dark in the middle of nowhere. It appeared to be a black silhouette of a man. I could only see the black shadow/silhouette coming towards me, I could not see any details in his clothing, only the contour of something which to me looked like a man with a hat and some sort of coat. It was dark outside, but his silhouette was even darker then the night itself. My heart froze and I started focusing really hard on this shadow person coming towards me in the middle of the night, to try and see if my mind was playing me a trick or not. He did not disappear! My phone says I recorded my idea at 23.22 o clock, so my encounter with this hat man happened minutes after this specific time.

First, this shadow was walking slowly towards me from the other side of the park, then this silhouette/shadow suddenly moves very fast. I panicked when I saw he suddenly started to move so fast towards me. I started running like hell while I had the recorder on record mode. I ran as fast as I could and at the same time I was looking behind me several times to see if he was still there or if it was me just hallucinating. He was still coming towards me, very quickly now! He did not run, he walked but he moved so fast, I did not understand what the hell was going on. I ran as fast as I have done in my entire life for 30 seconds (according to my recording), and I stopped once I was out of the park, down by the road. I have never experienced something this traumatic before, ever. I was terrified. I felt that this was not good energy and that he was coming to get me. I felt pure fear from my side. This was not good.

I was up almost all night when I got home, because I was so afraid to turn off the lights considering that he might show up again. I dreamt that night that I was looking for people to help me answering my question to what this was that I had experienced. When I woke up that morning, I was very interested in investigating more into this, and I realized that this is something that has happened to many people out there all over the world. I was not alone. I am now very curious, and I would actually like to experience meeting these shadow people again sometime, and try to keep calm instead of running as fast as I can away from it. I want to investigate this and get a deeper understanding of what I experienced.

My mum is a beautiful, intelligent, spiritual woman who claims she has experienced other worldly occurrences during her life here on earth many times. I kind of got an understanding of what she has gone through after what I experienced yesterday.

I have tuned into the spiritual "channel" myself the past years, and she told me this morning after I wrote to her what I had just experienced, that since I have started to open up more for the spiritual, I will not only see light but also dark matter. Where there is light there is shadows she told me…

I wrote what’s written above, the same night as my encounter with the hat man, to make sure to not forget any important details. Few weeks after my first encounter with this entity I started to have lucid dreams every now and then. One night I woke up by the sensation that a shadow being was scratching my back with its long nails. He was pushing me down my mattress and I was completely paralyzed and full of fear. My mind was awake but my body paralyzed/still asleep. I still dont know if this was real or me lucid dreaming. Most likely the last, but to me it felt so real, and I was so scared that it took me 4 months before I could sleep with the lights of again. I was afraid he would only come when it was dark. I did not even dare to go outside my room when I was home alone. I was so afraid. Maybe you find the following information valuable to know about in terms of further research: At the time I experienced these traumatic episodes, I was suffering from depression and anxiety. Depression+anxiety+hat man+lucid dreams+shadow people = Mental mind fuck. That being said, I graduated with a first class honors. I had to have something to focus on in order to survive the last months I had left before moving back to Norway…

Anyways, thank you for your time!
