Subject: Experience from Ecuador

I’m going to share with you four of my experiences, starting with the last that I had with the “shadow people”. You can choose one or all of them to upload.

The last experience with this phenomenon, I was around 15 years old. I was arriving to my bedroom after taking a shower in the night. I began dressing when I saw, through the window, a shadow silhouette running very fast near the window in the backyard. I was a little shocked, so what I did first was to run toward the backyard to see who was because I thought one of my sisters was planning to scare me.

When I arrived in the backyard there wasn’t anyone, there was not even a sound, so I began searching the spots where we used to hide when playing or joking around, and there wasn’t anyone. Whoever it was, it couldn’t just fool me. My backyard is not big and there’s only one door to enter the house from the backyard. Also, I was fast to get there so there was no possibility of someone passing by. I got a little scared and returned slowly and nervously to my room again and saw that my sisters in their bedroom.

I began thinking of what I saw and realized two interesting facts:

First, when I saw the shadow through the window, even with the lights from the bedroom, I still saw a ‘shadow’ instead of a person with the usual physical features.

Secondly, what physical characteristics I did see of the silhouette, resembled those of myself; I realized it was like me.

The next experience was with a shadow that looked like the popular culture image of Death with a difference; it had a cloudy appearance. This was not the first time I saw it, but this was the last. I was around 13-14 years old.

I was sleeping and having a dream, which, unfortunately, I don’t remember anymore but I felt a headache while sleeping. When I woke up and as soon as I opened my eyes, I saw some kind of hands around my head. I was shocked, wondering if I was still sleeping. I closed my eyes again for a few seconds and when I opened them, the shadow began moving toward the closet. I saw how it passed through the door so I got up and opened the closet… to see nothing of course.

Next, I was about 7-9 years old and was sick and got fever. I was sleeping and having a nightmare about a cannibal tribe and it’s been the weirdest nightmare I had to date, ‘cuz I don’t care about cannibals nor do they scare me. It’s not even interesting to me. That nightmare woke me up. I looked at the door of my old bedroom and then I looked toward my sister’s bed. What I saw at that moment was pretty scary for someone of my age. Between the space of my bed and my sister’s bed there was some kind of shadow that resembled “Death” with a cloudy appearance, looking at me or at least it looked like it, but I could not see any face or eyes. It began crouching slowly until it got out of my sight, I was scared and didn’t get up but just closed my eyes until I could sleep again. It would not be the last time I saw this same shadow.

This last experience is a short one. I was around 12-15 years old and was in my father’s bedroom. I wanted a glass of water so I walked toward the kitchen but as I passed the living room, I saw, through the front door to the street, a shadow walking up to my house. As I watched, it neared the door and crouched down fast, as to avoid being seen. At first I thought it was a thief so I didn’t hesitate to call my father to tell him what I saw as soon as possible. He came while I observed from the front door. He searched the garden and then to the street to find nothing.

That shadow was completely black, even in light, no way to tell its face, I can just say it had a clean appearance.
