My name is Amber and I’m almost 22 years old. I have always been a firm believer in ghosts, but was never a believer in evil entities. So the first time I saw a shadow being I thought it was just my imagination playing tricks on me. It was the Spring of 2007 when the first encounter occurred. I was working on a short story for my high school science fiction class when I suddenly felt like something in the room had changed, something wasn’t right. I couldn’t detect anything so I just shrugged it off as having an overactive imagination and went back to writing. Again the feeling came back and I was overwhelmed with dread, so I turned around, looking all around the room and that’s when I noticed it. Huddling in the corner, it was black, short, no distinct features really. I saw it reach it’s hands out and I screamed at it to go away and …

Wchasihen I was a little girl, I was no older then four or five years old when this horrible haunting began. I was an only child, and I was the daughter of older parents, and to my knowledge, they were not religious at all! My father was an atheist, and he was teaching me from an early age, that there was no such thing as ghosts or angels or even god himself. My mom was right behind my father in his beliefs, but I think she at least believed in God, but never talked about it, but she definitely was not a religious woman by all means!
I was a very well cared for child, and my parents were good people, who treated me well, so I was not an emotionally abused child or neglected in anyway.
I remember having these horrible nightmares every single night, and I call them nightmares because, this is what my parents believed they were, …

These shadow creatures, whatever they are have been the main source of fear for my friend and me. We call them Shades. The first time I can clearly remember seeing one was in my basement once, many years ago, when I was watching TV on my couch and I turned to look to the dark back of the room (because I felt like I was being watched) and there was a strange shape at the far end of the room, totally black, nothing else but a shadowy outline and it was in a bizarre, possibly hunched over or crouched position. Just sitting there. I whirled back to the TV in fear and looked back again but it was gone.
Now, I’m going to stray a little from the subject BUT it’s still relevant, I believe. When I was 6 years old, at elementary school, in mid fall, my friends and I wanted to make a leaf tornado. Obviously the odds …

Ever since I was a child I had a shadow in the form of a human being that followed me, I would feel it over my shoulder and it would dissipate away when I looked at it. The Shadow grew with me over time and I began to ignore the apparition over time but knew it was always there. Nobody else saw it though and I did mention it to my family.
I joined the Royal Navy in 1989 and after a couple of years was posted to Gibraltar while here one Christmas I started talking too a barmaid in a local bar who I had known for some time. She said she had a gift that she could see people passed over and reckoned that everyone has a Guardian Angel. of course me being a skeptic I laughed at this and said “Who’s my Guardian Angel then?”
She looked at me and said “I am not going to tell …

Before I tell you about my story I just want to let you know I’m 16 and I have mild insomnia.
This happened only last night. I moved into a house with my family and my mam is getting married but ever since I have been here I have noticed strange things.
My friends father is the local historian for my town and told me where I live was a “workhouse” back during the famine (by the way I live in Ireland).
Well I have always seen things in my house and although I am open to the paranormal and I can see and feel spirits there’s one thing that has really scared me.
I woke up one night at 5:00 am and was stuck to my bed! I could move around but couldn’t get up and I could speak! I looked around my room to see if anyone was there and I looked to my door and clinging to …

Ok so yesterday I read a post on cafemom about “my kid seen a black man in his room” totally creeped me out because my son sees things too, and recently I have seen something, in broad day light… I thought I was high off my Midol I swear!
What I saw was a small, like 3 foot tall black shadow person with red eyes and a hat, like a black leprechaun? and then I stared at it and my eyes went blurry and it was gone… weirdest thing ever!
My son does not describe what he sees and I don’t push him to. My friends kid came over once and bugged out randomly saying “there’s Susan!” and my son pointed too! He was like 1 1/2 at the time and he just sat there in his high chair frozen. But anyway…
So I read that post on the site yesterday and some people were commenting about the hat man… …

The shadow people/animals in my home are nothing like in your explanation ( Shadow Creatures . I understand why, you have very little if any real knowledge, only what’s been told to you, but it seems, like your trying to learn. Sometimes, the shadows I see, can be on the wall, roof, inside. Are they can be walking down the center of the room. In either case, the shadows are transparent. One of the shadows, is a Cat, who I have also seen as a normal, domestic short hair Grey tabby Cat. In normal form it stopped in front of me on the floor sat down, and just looked at me. Slowly it started to fade until it disappeared. This only happened one time. The next time, I was sitting in my lazy boy with my legs up, in the front room, of my house. When I looked to my right, and saw a black transparent Cat, with the tail …

I’m typically a brave person when it comes to the everyday battles. But there’s one war that I just cannot seem to conquer. It’s a factor in my life, that I can no longer ignore, no matter how much I wish to. I have recently faced a truth that has been needed to be brought into check a long time ago.
Looking back, my experiences started when I was only 8 years old. I distinctly remember having a nightmare in which a shadow of a man emerged from the veil over my closet. (Instead of doors, I had a sheer white curtain.) The man came over to my bed, and just stood there staring at me. I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t speak or move. I ended up becoming frightened, so I woke up. I lay there for a moment or two and slowly started to look around my room just to make sure nothing was actually there. …

This is not the first story I’ve submitted here. It’s been a while but I’d like to share this story with you. Hoping someone can tell me what’s going on.
I have had strange encounters with shadow creatures? I’m not sure what to call them, this happened on and off for a couple of years now. The first time a saw this creature was about 4 years ago. I was sleeping in my bed, having terrible dreams about someone trying to kill me… Something dripped on my face, I wiped it off half asleep still, when it hit me that I’m in my bed and nothing is suppose to be dripping on my face! I was fully awake and the dripping still went on, it was warm on my face and sticky. I finally opened my eyes and to this day I will never forget what I saw! It was a black mist type creature, hovering over me, staring at …

Where I live now I use to visit before I moved in. Well ever since I moved in I have been hearing walking up and down the steps when no one is in the house. And at any random time of the day as well. I would walk upstairs to the room and I would always feel being watched. well I would hear walking in the hallway from where I just came. The noise would stop and the the door would crack open. Well he has hit me before in the back of my head pulled on the bottom of my pants.
One time I was upstairs in my little brother’s room. I had to go down stairs for something I forget what I was grabbing. When I left his room my moms door right down the hallway was closed. I have a good photographic memory. So on my way back up it was pitch dark I mean you can’t …

When I was a child, I was taking an afternoon nap in my parent’s bed. As I’m waking up, I see this very tall shadow man with a top hat step out of their closet. He looked as though he was wearing a suit, but he was somewhat transparent and gray in color. As he walked straight out of the closet towards me, it seemed as though he was walking up steps. He kept close to the wall as he walked and didn’t walk straight towards me, but disappeared as he reached me. I remember feeling frozen and scared at what I was seeing and relieved to see him go.
A little background about my parent’s house. It was built in a town that is the site of an ancient Indian burial ground. So when I read the post about the Native American Tall Man, I couldn’t believe the similarity!
As I’m typing this, I’ve got an episode of Paranormal …

A few years ago, I submitted a story called Caroline, Beth, and the Shadow Man. Ever since we had that experience, my life has never been the same.
A few months after I posted the story, I started feeling paranoid. I’d see things out of the corner of my eye. I believe he followed me out of that cemetery. I believe that he’s everywhere I go. This is one of my most recent and most terrifying experience.
About a month ago, my family and I moved into a new house in a different city. As soon as we moved into the house, I felt extremely uncomfortable. I’d never felt comfortable at our old house, but this was on a completely different level of discomfort. Not long after we moved in, my parents decided that they were getting a divorce. My mother has moved out and my father tries to stay gone as long as possible. So, I always find …
