leakingignorance, thanks for your intriguing post!
First time poster/lurker here -
As I read your account I was reminded of similar, specific, recurring dreams of my own as a youngster. I was an only child of a single Mom so only had
one "night guardian".
I was equally terrified at night and slept in proximity to closets, cubbyholes, and steep old school stairs with narrow steps and a spindled
My roster of monsters were more demonic bipeds about 4' - 5' (feet) tall with spiny reptilian features, some with legs that seemed to bend backward
at the knee. I don't remember if they were ever clad in garments - but they never seemed naked - somewhat shrouded most of the time.
However, I chose to post when you mentioned the 3' shadow entity. Mine was the same height but always looked to me like a woman with long dark hair
and a mouth that looked like it was silently screaming or opening impossibly wide. It would shift from a young woman to a crone with similar, though
very frightening features.
I was struck by your format and its similarity to mine, if not in specifics. The feeling of these encounters being outside the realm of dreams also
echoes yours, though I'm not willing to assert any 100% conclusions - so many possibilities come to mind.
My dreams were pretty constantly nightmares with some recurring themes. I found them to be very distinctive from the "visitations". During one span
of time when we lived in my Grandmother's house, I did feel like the house was somehow a locus or catalyst for events that I found unexplainable and
In my adult years I unfortunately found that self medicating could suppress these dreams. I don't condone or recommend it, however, for many reasons.
I have always felt indelibly marked by the experiences and dreams, and am kind of an odd bird so to speak.
This was my attempt at brevity and I am a first time poster so I hope I haven't fumbled. I only wished to confirm that the OP was not entirely alone.
Regards to all.
