Subject: Shadow people - Canon City, co
My name is Bobby, I am now 30 years old and I live in Canon City, Colorado. It's a town about 32-40,000 people last time I counted. Well known for its prisons. We have more prisons in this area than anywhere else in the world that I have been....and that's 7 countries worth.
I grew up most of my life on Cameron, St. in a very plain 1 story ranch style house. 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, 1 car garage...you get the idea. We moved in when I was about 7 or 8 I think...maybe earlier. And since that time, we have experienced many, many, paranormal phenomenon...at one point getting so intense that Ed and Lorraine Warren from the ESPR got involved from a distance and a Priest of the Order of St. Benedict of the Catholic Church actually performed a blessing and exorcism of the house and property.
Since your site deals with shadow people, I will just stick to the events that are most relevant as far as I can tell from my own experiences.
Growing up, my mom would sleep across the hallway with her door open... I slept straight across with my door shut. I was never scared of the dark as a child or the boogie monster, things in the closet, under my bed, etc... I am a firm believer in the occult and the paranormal and while I am convinced these things exist...even the evil ones.... I was never scared of them.
She would tell me at times of seeing shadows, darker than black and "like a wispy cloth" float down the hallway and pass through my door, presumably into my room. That same place, on the other side of my door, in the corner where the walls came together, I would also see darker than black shadows. Sometimes floating near the roof, etc... I used to look out of the corner of my eye and see a black balloon. Including the long dangling tail. It would literally rise up from the side of my waterbed below vision range... and just float there. I would try to look at it...and it would not disappear...it would float back down just as fast as I looked over.
I am aware of the fact that these things can be just visual hallucinations or various types of visual problems that induce misinterpreted visions of shapes and human forms, etc that are not there...but I have near perfect vision, better than average night vision and have been tested for a mass amount of weird problems as I also experience very frequent night paralysis....which... on a side note also seems to effect any "guest" (of the female persuasion) that sleep near me for any extended period of time (weeks +). They begin to suffer the same attacks on the same nights. The only difference is I am able to see around me while frozen and they are stuck inside of dreams.
I know hours before the attacks by a strange "AM radio squelching" sound or pulse I can feel inside of me....or hear. It's hard to tell where the line between one ends and the other begins. However...I can tell the person before it happens in advance. And it's the only known case I am aware of that one persons night paralysis affects another person who normally does not suffer from it.
So.... that's my story.
