I have had a few encounters with these entities.
A few years back I was napping in the early evening. I remember waking up feeling heavy, the same feeling you have when you wear clothing in water and
the weight drags you down. There was no fear, but a calm awareness that I was not alone. It was surreal, I turned my head and the figure that was
sitting at my computer desk turned to look at me. Sounds horribly freaky, but I felt no panic or intense uncomfort. I blinked twice and the entity was
gone. I felt disoriented for a long time and tried to rationally explain what I saw and tried to talk myself out of believing in what I had seen, but
of course I could not deny my own experience.
As with the shadow men many see it was dark, no distinctive face and was hunched over a little.
On a side note, I remember thinking " Why the hell is it sitting at my desk looking at my computer? " And of course I wondered which game or wesbite
it was browsing or playing
Since then I have been aware of them, sometimes I see them in the corner of my eye and I chose not to acknowledge them. Some of them make me feel
nothing but curiousity, and some give me distinct chills. On some rare occasions I actually feel threatened and I tell them to leave.
Another story I can share is one my mother experienced. My mother is not a tweaker or a weirdo or one to believe in any of this paranormal stuff. In
fact she is the last person I can discuss anything with out of the mainstream.
One night she was reading her bible quietly in bed when she looked out her door and saw a man turn the corner of her hallway and then look directly at
her. The figure began to run down the hallway toward my mother at an abnormal speed. Before she could cry out it had jumped on top of her chest and
began to strangle her, there was no real feeling of fingers or pressure on her skin, but a distinct feeling of choking. My mother began to pray and
beg in her mind for the entity to leave. And then as suddenly as it appeared it disappeared.
A few nights later the entity came back and this time it came down the hallway and at my mother even angrier and faster. My mother felt a very real
threat for her life and literally began to chant religiously in her head. My little sister shared the room with my mother at the time and remembers
waking up to my mother trying to scream and looking scared. The entity left abruptly as it had the previous time.
My mother had her religious leaders come and "cleanse" her apartment.
She described the man as being dark, willowy and having no distinct expressions. Although she has shared this experience with me I have not shared my
experience with her, because she is of a different opinion why they come into our lives, based on morality and religious ideas that are prejudiced and
in my opinion incorrect.
I have to wonder, as others have mentioned, if we in fact somehow have a magnetic "energy" around each of us that literally opens the veil to the
other dimensions these creatures reside in. What energies we have attract certain entities.
Remember though that you have power inside you, sounds fruity I know, but be aware of your ability to tell them to leave and make them obey.
