Subject: My shadow person experience

Hello, my name is Jenny, and this is the true story of my shadow person experience.

One evening a few years back, my boyfriend and I had another couple over our house to watch movies. My boyfriend and myself were sitting together on the couch in the living room so that we faced the adjoining dining room. The other couple was facing the wall were the TV was. While watching the movie, I happened to glance into the dining room and that's when I saw it. I didn't say anything at first, that is, until my boyfriend happened to chuckle and say, "Hey, did you guys just see that?” I quickly responded, "Yeah, I just saw a shadow jump and arc across the door in the dining room that leads into the pantry.” The other couple didn't see anything but I know what I saw and so did my boyfriend. We have cats and dogs now but at the time of the encounter, we didn't, so it wasn't an animal or anything. What I saw, jumped from the left side of door, about halfway up the door and arced up and then back down, landing on the right side of the door. It had no shape other then that of a rainbow. It was about three feet long and a wispy black color.

That experience was bad enough but a few weeks later something scarier happened. My boyfriend fell asleep on the couch one evening and woke up a few hours later screaming. I woke up instantly and found him freaking out and extremely angry. He went on to described what had just happened. He said that while asleep on the couch, he felt something very strong sitting on his chest and holding him down. When he finally woke up, he tried to scream but couldn't and along with that, he couldn't move. It really scared the crap out of him.

Not even a week after this happened to him, the same thing happened to me. I was asleep in the same place he was and laying flat on my back, asleep. When I woke up, my whole body felt as if I had been tied up and there was an excruciating pressure holding me down. I tried to scream but no sound came out. I remember crying but I couldn't yell for help. I finally felt a release and got up and ran crying to my boyfriend for comfort. I don't know what it was and have done a little research myself and have pretty much come to the conclusion that there is something here in my house. I don't know what it is but I refuse to let it drive me out.

Occasionally, I feel as if I'm being watched and sometimes catch a shadow out of the corner of my eye. My boyfriend doesn't take it too seriously but I just want to be prepared for whatever it is that's going on.

Praying doesn't hurt either...
