I’m looking for testimonies on shadow people with stories similar to mine see if I can make since of it. I’m still trying to determine if it was
“real”, a nocturnal terror / nightmare.
I was 6 at this time, and we were coming back to France for the summer holidays from Africa. My parents rented a flat / hotel in Paris for a week
(before going to the south France in the family house).
The flat had 2 rooms, an American kitchen in the entrance and a cupboard bed thingy. That’s where I was sleeping, right next to the entrance. I went
to bed quite late that evening (around 11pm). The flat being quite small, my parents could not ask my older sisters to go to bed the same as their
In the night I woke up, laying on my side, facing the entrance door. I saw this tangible shadow, with a flat hat and trench coat (best description I
can give). It was holding some sort of lantern with his right hand. The lamp was giving this sort of yellowish light that would lightly illuminate the
entrance of the flat but not the person holding it.
I remember very well being terrified and my first thoughts were to check the door: it was still locked with the securities chain in its place.
My second though was that it was a nightmare, I couldn’t turn my sight from this shadow and I knew, it knew that I knew that it was here, amplifying
my terror. Being a little kid at that time, my reaction was to “turn around” and close my eyes it the hopes it would go away. I felt I turned
around showing my back to the shadow but I was still facing it and my eyes where still open.
The lantern’s light grew brighter forcing me to close my eyes then everything went black, and I woke up the next day with my mom shaking me. She
told me that I would not wake up and she was about to call for medical help.
30 years have passed now, it still feels very real but never happened again. However, when I was younger and during my teen years I had a couple
nocturnal terrors (kinds of dreams you remember for the rest of your life, feeling, image and sounds), I have a very good long term memory of my life
and my dreams, coupled with being a natural anxious person, I’m still wondering if this experience was real or not. I know how nocturnal terrors and
nightmare feel like, and this felt nothing alike.
Anybody with similar experiences or heard of equivalent stories? If anybody has some biological explanations (body growing, neural network firing up,
psychological anxiety issues due to moving around stuff like that), or more out of the box theories (but I’ll be skeptic to be honest).
Thanks in advance !
