A few folks have asked me about my personal involvement in the subject. I didn't include this in the OP because I didn't want this thread to be
another version of "This is my story." However, I can understand that it's important to have context, and so, this is what I've got.
I had experiences as a child of about 5 years old (1971) with what the type of HSP that is now called a Shadow Person. I "dreamed" about what I
called at the time "Black Frankenstein" outside my bedroom window (which was 20 feet off the ground). At the same time I started having those
"dreams" (every night) I also started sleepwalking. (I haven't walked in my sleep before or since, not even ONCE.) While sleepwalking I was trying
to get to an area of the house that would have let me go either a) outside or b) down a long steep flight of stairs to the first floor which also led
outside. My mom secured the door with a rope so I couldn't get it open. She told me (years later) that she did this after noticing my sleep
This is an approximation of what I remember seeing at my window. (edited version of the typical "Hat Man" figure)
One night while I was trying to get the door open, my dad (who was not the most patient man in the world, LOL) yelled at me to wake up. I did, and
started screaming. I was screaming and crying for 10 or 15 minutes, inconsolably. After that, I understand that I asked our pastor if Jesus could
make "Black Frankenstein" go away, which of course, embarrassed my mom. At about the same time in the house, when Mom and I were there alone, we'd
hear doors opening and closing, she'd find the back door (on the first level) unlocked and open when she knew she'd locked it ... and even heard
footsteps on the long staircase I mentioned. Apparently, one early morning, we heard something downstairs and Mom started to cry. Apparently, I
grabbed up a toy golf club (we actually got to have metal toys in those days) and ran to the stairs and down them before she could stop me. I guess I
had finally had "enough."
Two other experiences later in life (one when I was a teenager about 15 or 16, one in my mid-20s) are the extent of my purely "confrontational"
experiences with HSP ... one of which I've related regarding a bipedal something walking in the woods near my home.
My childhood experiences though ... left a bigger mark on me than I have realized until very recently. Even though due to my parent's vigilance and
their setting boundaries I was never able to get outside ... I've realized that my young mind was infected forever with a sense of Strangeness. After
that, even though the experiences stopped (perhaps because I stood up to it, perhaps because my Mom started praying everyday, perhaps because we moved
away.) I was TERRIFIED of the dark.
Pathologically. And I didn't overcome that until 10 or 12 years later. All kids (and some adults) are frightened a bit by darkness ... but I was
TERRIFIED of it. I remember many many nights crying myself to sleep in fear.
Things like that shouldn't happen to a child.
I've become aware that my memories and perceptions have been messed with. I've become aware that certain things were "hidden" from me. (I know this
sounds vague as heck but it's the best I can do to relate it at the moment). My "vision" was blocked to certain things, even though, my natural
abilities and "destiny" overcame some of that manipulation.
So, like I said, my Experiences are the Shadow Person as a child, an Invisible Sasquatch in my teens, and a Ghost/Psychic Memory when I was in my
mid-20s. All of these have other Objective explanations, none of which explain the Subjective effect on me.
The anger comes in to realize that a) they messed with me when I was a kid and hadn't fully formed an ego to be able to fight them, b) they inhibited
and exposed certain characteristics in me that I've spent my whole life working around, c) caused me and those around me in my life a whole lot of
The upshot of all this personal stuff is ... if there is any way I can help others defend themselves against these f-ing HSPs I'm going to do it.
Whatever it takes; whatever works.
Thanks for listening.
