Subject: They are not all people.
There are many people I know who see all types of Shadow Animals as well. I have often seen Shadow Deer run across the road. They come from the darkness and disappear into the darkness on the other side of the road. For weeks, well after moving into this house, I had a Black Slightly Smokey looking Cat hanging around my house. It walked around my house protecting me and my daughters at night. When I first saw it I was terrified of it because it has no shine to it or reflection in the eyes from light. Not even a shadow from the street light. I was told by those I trust it was just here to protect me and the children. If you post this please leave out my name or anything leading to me.

It happened around 2:30 AM during the last few months of school. I was on my computer sitting on my bed. All the lights were on and across the room set a dresser with a TV on it, a wooden beam, from ceiling to floor, in front of it. I just happened to look up and there stood a shadow next to the beam. It probably stood around 6 foot and was a solid figure from head to toe, male figure. It stood there for a few seconds then walked towards the stairs on the other side of the room, staying solid as it made it's way, then vanished when it reached the top of the stairs.
Now, about a year later and four states away from where this happened, it appears again in my house, only this time my mother got to bear witness to the solid male shadow figure standing next to her bed.

Subject: My first shadow people experience
Today is Wednesday April tenth 2013. My experience happened in the fall of 2012 in October I believe. I never really believed in much of the paranormal as I've always been very skeptical. Here's my story.
I was just out in my garage getting my 12 ft. boat ready for the upcoming waterfowl season. When finished, I went into my house to wash my hands because I had gotten some gas from the tank on my hands and no, I wasn't sniffing fumes! I actually thought of that!
Anyways, after washing my hands I wiped them dry with a towel that hangs to the right of the sink. As I was doing this, I saw something move to my right. The bathroom door overlaps with about half of the kitchen door across a hallway. As I turned to look, I caught a black transparent like shadow with hazy or faded edges move swiftly from the kitchen and move to its left into our living room. I attempted to follow it in there but it was gone. That was the last time I saw it.
It makes me think of a film negative but black when describing it. It was also shorter than me, around 5'5" tall. I don't recall seeing any arms, legs or head. It's funny, because I told my story to my son and his friend and they said they saw it also but that I blew them off when they told me about it! I tell my story without expecting anyone to believe me.
I don't know what it was that I saw, but I do believe in more possibilities now. That night I made my wife and two kids go from room to room and pray that if it was of evil nature for God to protect us from it, even though it seemed harmless, just a little sneaky. What really creeped me out is when I googled shadow people how much information came up! Thanks for letting me share my experience.

Subject: Green eyed shadow men
I've been seeing shadow men for some time now. The ones I see have green eyes. When they move past, it looks just like two green laser pointers flying by. What I learned from these guys is, they only seem to be around when I feel really energetic. I get the sense that, that's what they feed off of.
When I see them. It's almost like they are using telekinesis to make me look their way. They also cause intense fear, until you get used to it. I think they do that, because your not going to take your eyes off of something that your mind is telling you "is there", or off of something you fear can harm you. I think they get whatever energy your eyes are admitting. (The ones on the wall)
It now has gotten to the point where I can hear them whispering but it's at a frequency of where you just can't make out what their saying. I did a few EVP sessions. These things are intelligent. I've gotten very intelligent responses. And I also noticed they read your thoughts telekinetically. They know everything you fear. So the moment you think of something you fear, they will use against you. You have to learn not to give them what they hunger for. I've noticed a decrease, since I've learned to ignore them more. But if you acknowledge them, it's hard to stop and will bring more. I don't even do the EVP sessions no more.
I've finally gotten to a point where I can control the fear but every once in awhile, they still get to me. I've told them to leave, tried a few other things of removal. (besides exorcism)

Hello, I am Magnus and I want to submit a story of shadow people.
It was few days ago. I noticed a shadow figure on my wall; it was a head and a body. He looked a lot like me and I swear, it was like seeing myself. From the view of the shadow on the wall, there was a window in front of it at night. Whether it was from the outside or was it from the reflection, I don't know.
However, I started discovering what this was and is what appear to be shadow people. After my friend educated me of what it really is, I felt sorry for the shadow people; the shadow people we see, only we can see, they are a part of us but in a shadow realm. They envy us through our lives; having what they always wanted. Their best vision is through glass, when looking into mirror I could see him move almost like me, and felt like me but not quite. It was hard for me to understand what it really meant. It can be many things, but I do have had similar experience in the past. It is said that 99% of them are evil and will try to make you weak and possess you. But... mine wasn't evil. He was good, even though his life must have been torture and hell. No, he was good standing out like light of beam from the darkest night. Even the dark part of him glowed bright. I would do anything in the world to help him, but I do not know how to. I love every part of myself, even the darkest. In addition, I hate seeing other in pain. Most of the time you start seeing shadow people.
Is because they want something from you or want's to greet you to find a friend.
Mine might as well be evil but I always believe in people.

Subject: My experiences from Jeremy McGovern
The first time I saw this shadow person was in February or March. I can't remember all but I remember the first time, I was laying down in bed and I woke up to get a drink. I couldn't roll over or talk. It felt like someone's hand was on my and covering my mouth so I couldn't talk. The figure just vanished into thin air. Then about 2 weeks after the first time it happened, this time I looked around with my eyes and seen this very dark figure looking like it was staring at me with an arm reached out keeping me from talking and kept me from rolling over. Then third last time I saw it, it was last night April 16th and I turned my eyes cause I figured it was the same thing doing it and again I couldn't talk or move my body and it stood there for like 5 minutes while I was staring at it, it looked like a man figure with no facial features but I could tell it was a man and after about 5 minutes I told it to go away because I was scared. It did which was a relief but I'm still scared to sleep right now cause I don't want it to come back. What can I do to make it disappear from my life. Please email me back.

Subject: My experience
I didn't realize this phenomenon existed until I described my childhood experience of seeing shadowy people moving around my room at night to a friend. I was never afraid and didn't think there was anything abnormal about them.
Usually they didn't really seem to notice me; they would walk around my room, sometimes walking right through my bed and into the wall. Occasionally, they did seem to notice me and would do things to...make me laugh...smile...interest me?
I am not certain of the intent but it seemed benevolent enough. Most vividly, I remember them making shapes on the ceiling that reminded me of a shadowy kaleidoscope. I don't remember ever being spoken to by them or that they ever tried to communicate with me in any other way. It's nice to know that I share this experience in common with other people. Feel free to post and share. :)

Subject: My shadow ghost story.
I feel I have to share this story with people, if not for their peace of mind that these things are real, but for mine also. The shadow ghost I encountered was in my home in Scotland during the summer of 2012. It was a regular Saturday night for me, I was sitting alone in my living room watching the television. I had never been afraid of being in the house alone; the thought of any form of paranormal activity was beyond me, in fact, I had never believed in anything paranormal until this night.
The time was around 9 p.m., and as the advertisements came on I decided that I would go to the bathroom and then go through to the kitchen and get a drink. I got up from the chair in the living room, and I walked through the study which would lead me past the stairs and to the bathroom. However, I didn't get as far as the bathroom; the moment I got to the bottom of the stairs I stopped dead. There, so clear from the corner of my eye, was a man at the top of the stairs, completely black, standing there so very still, watching me. I couldn't see his eyes, but somehow, I could feel his eyes burning into me. I knew immediately this was not someone who was from our world. He stood with his fists clenched and his legs apart, and although this being was completely black and had no features, I could distinctly see his hair, which pointed in all directions; almost like today's modern hairstyles for men. I could also make out a belt; I don't know why I could make this out, but it seemed to jut out, like it had something in it. With all this detail I picked up on, you would think that I had watched him back for a number of minutes; on the contrary, this encounter probably lasted less than a second, but it is an image that is incredibly clear in my head. Nevertheless, through my shock and fear, my head instinctively turned to look at him straight on; but he had gone! He had completely vanished as though he had never been there, but I know he was there.
For hours after this incident, I did not feel safe. I could somehow sense that he was still watching me, even as I sat watching the television. I could also sense that his watching me was not for the purposes of good. Something sinister had happened, and ever since his arrival at the top of my staircase, I don't think he ever truly left.

Subject: Shadow being in 2008
You have my full permission to use this story on your website.
In 2008, I was in the military stationed in California, near San Francisco. I was dating a civilian guy who lived in a nice two story house in a nearby small town. We were watching a movie in his bedroom.
I went down stairs to get us a couple of sodas and popcorn. I walked into the kitchen and I didn't bother to turn on the lights because I knew my way around his kitchen.
I should explain how his downstairs was set up.
If you went downstairs you were in the living room. The living room leads into the kitchen and across from the door between the kitchen and living room is a sliding glass door. I looked out the door. There was a security light and the front house, so I could see some stuff in the backyard. There was just enough light to see a shadow creature. It was tall; much taller than either me or my boyfriend and he was upstairs, so he could not have been outside. It was nearly 7 feet tall all totaled. It was dark 'dark black' with a fuzzy grey outline. I could see everything but its feet. The thing had some sort of angular hat that looked like a sideways W at the back. I couldn't tell precisely what it really looked like because everything was on the same plane. It was walking across the yard. It's head snapped to the right side to look at me. Right when it looked at me I felt utter terror (and I have done a lot in the service).
I was frozen in terror. I finally found my voice and yelled for my boyfriend. He came running down the stairs and just as he got to the kitchen, it took off running. He barely had time to see it, but we both saw it. So, it was not just in 'my head'. He ran outside and followed him but it was gone. I was so scared that once we got back inside, we locked the door and ran back up stairs and stayed up there the rest of the night, which was unusual for us, since we normally ran around the house doing what normal young people do.

Subject: My story
I just watched a television show on SciFi called "Weird Or What", hosted by William Shatner. There was a segment on Shadow People. I just wanted you to know that I have also seen a shadow person. It is an experience I will never forget.
I was about 5 or 6 years old. I woke up in the middle of the night to see this shadow person standing at the foot of my bed. He was in a perfect silhouette of a tall slender man. He was in full body and just stood there. He never spoke or moved. He was blacker than the surrounding darkness of my room. The strange part was that I closed my eyes and I could still see him through my closed eyelids! I opened my eyes again and he was still there.
I screamed at the top of my lungs until my dad came into the room. The figure stayed there until my dad turned on the light and then he was gone. I didn't feel an actual threat. I was just frightened because a strange "man" was in my room. Also, I was young. All these years I have wondered what I saw.
You have my full permission to use my story any way that you wish. Also if I can be of any more help or if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I am SO glad to know others have seen what I have and that I am not alone.

Subject: Shadow story
What began as a series of terrible nightmares and violent attacks of my mind while sleeping, I was convinced I had some type of mental disorder i.e schizophrenia.
Then one night while my sister and I slept in the bed together, I struggled to wake up from one of these attacks. Wordlessly, I woke her up and gestured for her not to speak and indicated for us to switch places. We did and went back to sleep without either of us talking. Doing this was purely instinctual.
A few minutes later while I had fallen asleep peacefully, I was awakened by my sister who was frantic. She told me, as she was drifting to sleep, she suddenly felt a presence over her. When she opened her eyes, she saw the shadow figure of a man standing over the bed, as if trying to discern which was which.
At this point, I knew I wasn't crazy. There is no doubt these shadow people are evil and the mission is to destroy its targeted victim.

Subject: Odd happenings
Hi, I'm 14 and I've been having very odd happenings as of late. I don't know if I'm going insane or what (some of these things don't seem like shadow people, but others do). At the start of this school year, I was stressed due to how poorly the last one went, and I just found out about shadow people. I looked on your site, and read a bunch on it. So about a month ago, I was playing Starcraft 2 with my brother at 1 AM and I saw right above my TV a black blob dart from one side to the other. I was confused, not scared, and told him. He just told me to get more sleep, so I did.
A couple of days later, same time and still playing Starcraft 2 with him and I had Pandora Radio on the classical rock station. Keeping in mind what he told me, I went to bed and turned my computer off. But right as I got in bed, I heard music playing as clear as day. I made sure everything in my room was off, and it all was, so I told him via text and went to bed.
Now, a week ago I had the first nightmare in years. It was a perfectly fine dream until the very end. Pretty much in the dream, my parents went out for the weekend and I was left home with my brother, and I went to take a shower. When I came out of the shower (we have a skylight in our bathroom) I looked up and saw the shadow person's hooded face staring down at me, and the dream ended (akin to the falling dream that a lot of people have). Now, I keep my curtains and shutters closed before I go to sleep, and the curtains were pulled aside enough for a face and the shutters were drawn halfway.
Ever since that dream, I have gotten the feeling of being watched whenever I walk up the stairs or leave my room. Oddly I never feel any of this in my room. You do not have to use this story if you do not want to, due to the fact that none of it really insinuates that I've seen a shadow person close up, but I would like to know if I am going insane or if this stuff really means something.
Thanks, and please do not use my email

Subject: shadow person
I have read somewhere, a few years ago, that shadow people don't have emotions like we do and are curious about emotions, especially those negative emotions like fear and anger. I wonder if they stimulate those emotions to get our reactions to study them. I am not sure how true this is and there may be some shadow people who are stronger and more negative than others. I do have a story of an experience and I am not sure if it is a true shadow person or not.
My husband leaves early for work so he was already gone. I had just woken my teenage daughter up for school. I went into the computer room to turn it on and I had not turned the lights on yet. I was just sitting in the chair and my daughter handed me a permission slip to sign. It was still dusk outside so the house was not lit up much. I like it that way when I first get up. I had just enough light at the computer to sign the slip. We are usually both quiet in the morning and I looked up and saw a shadow pass the open door. I thought it was my daughter's shadow. It was coming from the direction of her room and towards the living room. Instead of calling to her, I figured I get up and hand the permission slip to her since I needed to get ready for work anyway. I went to the living room and she was not there, so I thought she went to the kitchen and she was not there. So, I thought, ok, she went to the laundry room and just didn't turn the light on. She was not there either and I found she was in her room and she could not have passed me. I know the shadow did not move in that direction and when I think about it, it was much taller than her anyway.

Subject: My shadow people
My name is Lou. This happened while I worked at a place called U.S. Classic Billiards in Alexandria, LA. It happened only at that building for most of the time I worked there. It did not happen everyday but it happened frequently. I first noticed it out of the corner of my eye in my peripheral vision.
I was assembling a table and was alone or at least fairly distant from other people working. There was only a 10 person staff. I was preparing a pool table when I noticed a dark figure 30-35 feet away from me. When I turned to look, it was not there. I dismissed it at first. The figure seemed to be dressed in a suit or suit with long overcoat. It "felt" male but I could never see a face or fine detail. I continued to see "him" sporadically. Instead of facing "him" when I noticed that he was standing there, I acted like I had not noticed and continued to work. I never actually saw him move. When I would move in a way that would block me from sustained view, he would suddenly be somewhere else not too far. He seemed like he was observing me only. I had no sense of danger or fear while this was happening.
At first, I kept this information to myself. Only after this kept happening for a few weeks, did I decide to tell my wife. I told her because of the regularity of this happening but stressed that I felt no reason for concern. These occurrences continued for a few more months and then stopped. I only recently come to understand that "shadow people" were a phenomenon that other people have experienced.
I hope this helps. Peace

Subject: my story shadow from brasil
I tell my story. Well, I live in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. When I was a kid, something happened that I remember well today. Several times during the night, there were noises in the walls, until I woke up. When I woke up, I always saw a figure, very similar to the photo on your website, on the bedroom door. The worst was, that despite the noise breaking the silence of the night, nobody woke up.
I spoke to my mother several times about what was happening but she always said the same thing; she told me to pray.
One day, I decided to build up my courage, get out of bed and went towards the creature. As I approached, it walked away from me. After that, I started to feel very heavy eyes until I could not hold them open for a longer time. When I blinked, the creature disappeared.
After all these years, strange things still happen: as dejavu, etc. The worst thing is not understanding or being afraid of answers.
I hope that the light of understanding be with you all.

Subject: My Experience with the "Shadow People"
I literally just found your website and was surprised at the large amount of people who have also had experiences with these "shadow people". I saw that you all were open to stories as long as they are true so here we go.
This occurred either this year or last year.
Basically, I have lots of trouble getting to sleep at night and I have "Sleep Hallucinated" before. When I was younger, I was a sleepwalker and a sleep-talker but that probably wouldn't help the story at all. Anyway, I have always hated my mom's boyfriend's house. I always felt like I was being watched every time I went upstairs. So one night, I get into bed and start to drift off but then I realize that I have to go use the bathroom. I pull my head up and to my surprise, I see shadow-ish people standing all around my wall. I have attached a picture to show what I can remember. I think there were about 5-15 of them. They were medium-short height wise. None of them spoke, but they did all giggle. They were there, around my room, for about a minute. Then, they just... disappeared. Just gone. I will never forget them; all just giggling. It was a very childish giggle as well.
Now to answer the questions.
I first saw them as soon as I put my head up from the pillow.
They just stood there, and giggled.
They seemed childish but they made me feel very uncomfortable.
I didn't trust them. I was ready to be hurt by them right there, that is what I felt. Like a horror movie, where something stares at you then pounces and kills you. THAT is what I felt.
They left as they came, just BAM and they were gone.
Honestly, I was terrified. I have only been that scared once, but that is another story for another time.
You guys have full permission to post my story, post my email address as well so that if anyone wants to ask questions they can.
I am also pretty sure that this is all correctly typed with correct grammar. Have a Great time reading this!
Oh, and honestly I am shaking by writing this and recreating the face.

Subject: shadows watching me sleep
I am a mom in my early forties, living in Michigan. This happened about four years ago and it was the only time I've seen shadow people in my house.
One morning I woke up alone, after my husband had gotten up for work. I could see very well in our room, because the sun had already come up and we sleep with the shade only pulled halfway down. I opened my eyes to see two shadow beings standing in my room, between the closet and the door to the hallway. The shadows were not on the wall, they were maybe a foot out from the wall. Although they had no discernible features, I knew they were males, and I knew they were looking at me.
I'll try to describe what they looked like - they were a very dark black, so I couldn't see though them, and kind of shapeless. There was some definition of their heads and shoulders but it was kind of vague. No limbs. The tops of them were about normal height for a man - maybe around six feet tall. But the bottoms of them ended a few inches above the floor, like they were floating.
The shadows didn't move at all for a few seconds, and then suddenly they turned and glided through the door, which was closed. Here's the weird part: for this entire experience, I felt perfectly at ease. I woke up, saw them looking at me, saw them go through the closed door, rolled over, and immediately fell back asleep. So, for a long time I thought that I somehow, at some level, knew these beings; maybe they were relatives that had passed, or spirit guides, or guardian angels. And then I read about someone who had a shadow person experience who felt like thoughts were being put into his mind. Thoughts like: 'don't wake up', or 'don't remember this', or 'we won't hurt you'...
Now when I remember that morning I just feel confused; were they harmless? Did we know each other? Why were they watching me sleep, and how could I ever think that it was perfectly normal?
Thank you for reading this - email me your thoughts, if you like.

I saw a ghost in 1976 while I was living in an old farmhouse in the country outside Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
I was in the living room, reading a book. I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and glanced up to see what I thought was my boyfriend walking down the hall past the door. He had on jeans and no shirt. A few moments later, I got up and went outside to find my boyfriend with a shirt on, chopping wood. He had not been in the house for over an hour.
I wasn't scared, didn't feel threatened or anything. It felt more as if I just saw a bit of someone's normal activity who happened to not be a living person.

I am now 43 years old, getting divorced and moving back in with my parents for awhile. I am terrified; why you might ask?
My parent's house is haunted by my dead grandfather, my dad's father. I am terrified of having some contact with him. My parents say just ignore him. When my dad says he has seen him, he describes a shadow person.
For years, with increased frequency I have seen something move out of the corner of my eye real fast, like someone walking or running by. I sleep walk, sleep talk, have nightmares, etc. I can be asleep and feel the side of my bed dip as if someone has sat gently down, I have felt someone rub my foot and my lower leg as if comforting or to get me to move over. Of course I wake up, scared to find no one there. I have been dead asleep and awakened by the bed being jerked around violently. My bed is solid, we have no earthquakes here. I get awakened by screams into my ears, loud noises that are meant to scare me. I have awakened to a dark figure at the end of the bed or in the hall within eyesight of my bed. My aunt who is in her 70's, has no idea of my problems is waking up now to a shadow man.
I take Ambien for sleep but it doesn't matter, when they want you awake - you will wake up.

After using google to look up info on an experience I had, I came across your site. I am hoping you can help me by providing some information and insight for me.
I could write a long email regarding the situations in our life but I will sum it up to saying there has been a lot of negativity. I decided I want to try and start a new beginning and the other day I burned sage throughout the house.
I have an upstairs downstairs and a basement room with garage. I get down to the basement and garage which is the last place I would be burning the sage and went in the basement room and walked into the garage and wanted to smudge the basement room again real quick before going upstairs. Before that I would like to mention that when I came downstairs and started in basement, I began to feel a strange sensation energy in both my hands running up to mid forearm. This continued while I was downstairs in basement and garage area. So as I went back in basement room one more time before heading upstairs, I turned around to head toward stairs and I saw a shadow figure; tall and slender and human form but no features, there were no light, no eyes, and as quick as it was there, it was gone.
It shocked me when I turned around to the point I gasped out loud. I started heading up stairs and that was the last time I seen it. This happen the other day.
I don't think I necessary felt threated by it but I have never had that happen. Hoping you can give me insight.

My boyfriend and I were staying in Virginia City, Montana for the weekend and we decided to take the Bale of Hay saloon Ghost Walk tour.
Our ghost host led us around town, describing the late 1800 homes and businesses and her personal ghost encounters, as well as local legends and her co-workers and friends experiences.
We were outside the old morgue (now a Play house and restaurant) and she was describing how people hear moaning and a woman crying and how the bodies were taken into the basement of the building when it was a morgue. She encouraged everyone to take several pictures because many orbs are caught in that area and so everyone was milling around taking photos of the area.
I was standing behind a woman and we were both staring in the same general direction (at the large side wall of the building). I saw a small very black shape come from the ridge of the top of the building. It was very agile in the way it moved it appeared to curve around the corner and elongate (again solid black) it then seemed to create a solid black seam across the building and then when it reached the end of the wall it seemed to dissipate into almost like a shower of semitransparent black ash. This happened quickly but I was facing it and had a very vivid view.
The woman standing in front of me spun around and said, "Oh my god, did you see that?!" Yes, I did. We both agreed on the details and were both confused as to what it was.

Subject: They are real
Hi my name is K. I am from a farm in Alberta, Canada. I'm not sure if I have invited them into my life, but they do exist!
Right from a young age I have seen them. They first appeared when my family started to discuss angels and their existence. I said I could see one out of the corner of my eye.
They laughed at me, but after a while, my family said it must be a bad thing because no one else could see it and maybe I was making it up.
Quite often in my life after that, I could see them. Yes, I've seen two together. They like to stay near the shadows of trees and such. A month after my uncle shot himself, I saw them more often. That was the year of 9/11. One particular time I was walking from my porch to my parents' house and the shadow was sneaking into their garage. It hesitated for a moment then dashed in. That was as close as I have ever been to one until tonight.
The next time, I know for certain, I saw one, I got a full view of it, even better than the one dashing into the garage. This one, I could see walking across the road behind me. You know how I know it was real? The dog I was walking, stopped and turned back to take a look too. He did this before I looked back. In fact, that was why I turned around.
Sometimes I feel like I'm being bumped and we have had a few things happen, loud banging. No one down stairs on the main floor yet a few things are moved. It has been pretty quiet lately...until last night. I thought someone was watching me and I glanced up to see a shadow move across the fridge to the laundry room.
I felt creeped out and began praying.

I had to share my story with someone, someone whom would not judge me. My name is Samantha and I have been seeing shadow people for as long as I can remember.
My first time was after a session with a spirit board when I was in 6th grade. It appeared, full bodied, before me with bright red eyes and very menacing. It scared me so bad that I have not touched a spirit board since that night.
The next most memorable was last year at a locally known haunted sanatorium. I came across "him" in a hallway. I know it was a 'him' because he communicated it to me. He was an older being and very dark. The best way to describe him is demonic.
He communicated to me that I was in HIS space and to leave immediately. I was terrified to my core; my blood ran like ice through my veins until I had put some distance between myself and this Old St. Albans Sanatorium in Radford, Virginia. I did research and found out an exorcism had been performed there on a female patient.
Now I've been seeing them in my apartment. I can feel them watching me, and they do not like me. They know I see them. Even now, as I write this they are watching me.

I, too, have seen a shadow person. Several months ago it showed itself at the end of my kitchen. Surprisingly, it "stared" at me for several long moments until I flipped the light on. It then disappeared immediately.
When I was about four years old, I saw another being in the living room (different house). I have not yet determined if it was an extraterrestrial, a time traveler, or a trans-dimensional being. All I know is, I certainly saw it. I was so terrified that I simply grasped onto my mother's night gown, completely speechless. It was tall (probably around 7ft or so). It was very, very skinny (abnormally so). Its head, however, was its most striking feature. It was very large and shaped like a football, with tiny ears at the tips of each end. It had large, oval eyes. I have not seen it since, besides in my dreams.

Ever since I was little, I have seen these black people out of the corner of my eye. It been happening since I was three. No matter where I go, it follows me. I've traveled half way across the country and it still follows me.
I remember the first I saw it. I was just three maybe four. I was just running around with my friends playing tag. I ran past a tree and saw this black figure. I looked back but saw nothing. I shrugged it away.
I've always seen them but the time that scare me the most is when I arrived home from school when I was 12. For the entire week, I felt as if someone was following me. When I went into my home, I locked the door behind me and looked up at the window across from me. I saw this black figure. I've seen him many times before but never like this. It was there for at least a minute. I was too scared to move from my spot. And as the minute past, it just disappeared; like it had run away.
I've never gotten the threatening feeling from these figures that follow me everywhere but they scare me to death. I see them on a daily basis but not like the time when I was 12. I can barely sleep at night thinking that someone is going to kill me in the middle of the night. I just wish they would go away. Even if they don't seem evil or threatening at all. I just want them to go away.
You have permission to use my story. I don't care. I just want them gone.

I guess in a way I've always seen them, although they were never human like in form.
Up until that day, they were always just black wisps that I would refer to as "death eaters", just because they reminded me of them in an odd sort of way. But this all changed when I slept over my friend's house. I was sleeping and I remember just dreaming one second then next, being wide awake (mind you, I'm a very deep sleeper). When I woke up the only action I could do was blink, I couldn't move anything else or speak. So after I woke up, I was just staring into space, for at most, a few seconds until I blinked and after I blinked, there was this black figure standing over me. They were pitch black and looked to be wearing a cloak, resembling the Grim Reaper almost but it was short (about my height, maybe a little taller and I'm 5ft 3in). I remember it reaching out to touch me (although "it" just feels like a "he" to me) and I couldn't move, but when they were close enough to touch me, I felt a coldness radiating from them. Next thing I knew, I blinked and it disappeared, not like the wisps I usually see but just there one second and poof, no proof it was there the next. I was so scared I cried myself to sleep, although there was nothing very malicious about it. I was just freaked out.
The next morning came and I woke up to tell my friend what happened. Well turns out she saw it too. Her experience, from what she told me, is that she heard a voice that she thought was me but I was still asleep. Although when she listened closer to sound of the voice, she couldn't really identify a gender. She then turned and there it was one second and gone the next.
Similar things have also happened to her when they are in the living room where, from a certain couch, you can see through the front door (there is an oval pattern that is just glass) and she always sees a male shadow.
No one else but her and her dog seem to see it. Her step-dad usually checks and he sees nothing but she can always still see the figure just standing there, then it disappears. Although these are just our encounters with shadow people, we have actually had many other paranormal experiences in her home.

My wife and I have a six year old son. For the past month when we put him to bed, he says he is scared. I tell him there is nothing to be afraid of. That I am right downstairs.
Last night I am lying in bed with him and we are just talking. He tells me he is scared. I ask him what he is afraid of. He tells me he saw a shadow stand in his doorway and then come in his room. I asked him what it looked like. He told me it was bald and had no legs below its knees. He said it had a tummy and a butt. I asked him what it did after it entered his room and he said it disappeared. I told him it was just his PaPa checking in on him. When I went downstairs and told my wife the story, she says he told her the same story.

Subject: Something I still question
Let me please start by saying I've never been the type of person to believe in supernatural things, and just assumed people exaggerated with these type of stories.
It was a summer night of 2012, me and my mom were walking my two little dogs around the block like any other day.
The street that we were on was relatively dark, with an 8-foot wood fence trimmed with tiny bushes along it on one side, and a driveway on the other. Suddenly, a dark, hunched-over figure, ran across in front of us towards the fence and bushes. This thing was an odd size; a little bigger than a child and completely black. I didn't see a face on it. It was such a swift, quick run, I thought it was weird my dogs didn't even notice the creature that just passed. Me and mom stopped where we were standing...dumbfounded...then looked at each other in disbelief. Five minutes later we got the courage to look over a little closer to the fence (where anything else would've been trapped without running out and being seen) and nothing was there. It was gone.
That whole week I was trying to convince myself it was nothing, but I know what I saw! My mom was right there to witness it and tell me I wasn't going crazy! Still gives me chills thinking about it! Lol

I would like to tell you about one of my encounters with shadow people. About 4 years ago myself and my crew of 5 were working a night shift at major radio station in Adelaide, Australia. We were doing building works that could not be carried out during the daytime.
It was about 3 am and we were taking the tools and equipment down from the 1st floor to the front doors of the building where we dropped the load, turn around and climb back up the stairs. So there I was, I turned around and from under the stairway's landing, leaning out from the waist up, was a fully formed humanoid shape; maybe 6 ft. tall, independent of the shadows under the landing and in a place where there was no light and no subject that could be casting this shape. I couldn't see any eyes or features but had the distinct feeling that it was watching me with curiosity. After maybe a second, it pulled itself back into the dark under the stairs, seemingly in shock of being spotted. Now although I was a bit freaked out, I will say that it felt no malevolence towards me; it just seemed to want to know what we were doing in this place when normally no one would be in the building.
This is one encounter of many that I have had with shadow beings over the years, and I must say, that my mind is still out on them but they are real and they are out there.

Subject: shadow man From Stephanie
I first noticed the shadow man in February 2013 when I was driving home at night from work. I thought someone was walking across the street but as I got closer he was gone. He looked like a 6 foot man, very dark; more like a shadow that stuck out with the light from my car.
I saw him every night at the same place, for about a month. Then I was starting to see him in my house standing off to the side of me and four days later, I started seeing him face to face. I would go to sleep and see him standing at the side of the bed, watching me. He seemed angry at first, telling me to be careful then I would hear a scream, like someone who needed help.
I never saw any face movement just a very dark out line and eyes that seemed to follow me. At first, I was thinking maybe he wanted help but as another month passed, I started feeling like someone was laying behind me. I would feel ice cold, finding hard to breath. I would feel ice-cold hands on my back and neck throughout the day.
I haven't seen him run, just walk. When he leaves the room, he looks back and just disappears. I don't feel threated, I feel calm and almost relax and very cold when I see him or her. I'm only scared when I feel some kind of anger or the screams like someone is being murdered. When he appears, he sticks around for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
I ended up moving to Germany and I still see as well as feel him. And the date is 6/24/2013. He hasn't talked to me since he told me to be careful, umm... it just seem like he's still watching me he screams throughout the day. I don't know if I should try talking to him. I have told him he can leave but he comes and goes throughout the day.

*Please withhold my address*
All right, I see a ton of Shadow People, along with animals and objects. Often times 'it' is on my stairs. It's a narrow corridor so, I guess if I was about to make my presence known, that's where I would hang.
Anyways, I often see figures or blobs at the top of the stairs. The one most carved in to my memory is one that was faded around the edges and looked like a man with no hands or feet. His head was perfectly round and he just seemed like, "Hello, I am here. Accept it." That was his attitude but then I blinked and he was gone.
Others include a hawk/phoenix-like thing. It just flies through the dining room with no care. It's wing feathers are well defined and very wispy. Think of a thick goop and it being lighter than air and being melded into a feather. It seems to follow me. Haven't seen it in a while though. Around it, just floating after, look like black sparkles and blobs. I get a neutral, protective feeling from it.
I've always felt their presence, all of them. Some will have red, silver, or gold flame-like eyes. That is how I often see them.The eyes flash and it makes either a spark or a wisp in the air.
Everyone seems blind to this, save for my brother. He has been seeing them as well. They don't seem to wish to hurt, they just have a, you-don't-bug-me, I-don't-bug you, attitude which I respect. I don't kick 'em out and they don't bug me or my family. I still put up multiple shields though. I would pray except I'm not sure about God. I don't know, it just feels like he would be/is tired of being worshipped all the time. Also, I just don't trust religious groups, so I... don't know... Any theories on why so dang many?

Subject: constantly bothered
This is what is happening to me even now. I know when they're here, they start to play with my things. They take them and have me search everywhere and I mean everywhere for the item, like my credit card and after I ask for it back a couple of times, they put on the total opposite side of the where I put it down, like my dresser. That is only the start. I'm 37 and this has been going on since I was 16. I've been almost pulled out of bed, had their weight on my body, have them sit next to me on my bed
I would see certain faces on the walls at night when the night light shines a little on the wall. Finally, I woke up one night and found a shadow man at the end of my bed.
I need help. I move to another place and it will take a couple of months to find me but they do the feeling they give me is that they are not good. Last night I had to sprinkle holy water around my room and tell them get out of my room and I slept without waking up and turn on the light over my bed...someone help.
