Hi, i am 17 y.o. female. My whole life i've been "plagued" with visions of "beings" that aren't really there. Just recently i've acquired these wierd dreams... they always happen in that time between sleep and awake. its like i start dreaming before i fall asleep.... some of these dreams feel VERY real.. These dreams always contain at least one black robed figure. They have a human like shape. I had two just the night before last. The first one was quite beautiful in its odd/erie way. it looked like it was in the desert. There was a harsh red/orange sun over its right shoulder (the left side) and beautiful snow capt mountians with a blue sky and clouds over its left shoulder (right side). It was standing there unmoved even though the wind was fierce. in its right hand it was holding the end of a string. its fingers looked like human fingers. the string appeared to be tan baleing twine (like what they use to hold hay in bales). the medium sized spool was slowly unrolling across the sand towards me. i could she its jaw line, this also resembles human features ALOT. i woke up to scketch this image down really quick. the next one happened right after i layed back down and closed my eyes. there was two cliffs with a large path between them. i was standing on top of one watching. there was a large group (unending it seemed) of those black robed figures walking into that path. my mother used to have dreams of these black robed figures. one time she was downtown and one was on the other side of the street following her and wtching her. my mother always (like me) saw small "demon" like creatures. i used to be very religous, but alot has happened to me in the past few years and im not so much anymore. i'm still christian, just not practicing. my mother used to be the same way. my mother died in may of 2005. After my mother died small little "demon" like creatures visited my grandmother. but as far as i know thats the only time it happened to her. if anyone could help me understand what these things are so i can understand what i'm dealing with i would greatly appreciate it.

It is common for dreams/flashes in the "edge of sleep" hypnogogic/hypnopompic states to feel very real, so much so that if that's the only time you see these figures, (if it was me, I would score it as) it doesn't really count...
I'm not saying this to be mean, or anything...things that happen in that state are commonly weird, is all, so it's easier to think it attributable to that state than to a big significant new weird reality...(I have had a weird super-real-feeling bit like that, and discounted it, myself)

I'm just wondering, not that I'm trying to debunk the hypnogogic effect or anything, but why is it universal for everyone to see shadow figures or hooded figures? Surely, everyone fears a whole variety of different things, so shouldn't the images that their mind conjures up during these experiences be something that the individual fears? Why always shadow beings?

I say they could be more than just something the subconscious mind conjures.

Perhaps don't fear these hooded dudes. Some say that they're "interdimensional" beings that have the ability to travel through different frequencies. Maybe like some sort of gate keepers. I don't know this for sure though, because I've never had an experience with them. Don't plan on it neither. Maybe they're related to the story of the grim reaper. Maybe these are the beings that could escort you to another place.

Hey there
I cant really offer you any advice or help. But I would like to say that I think youre dreams are beatifically laden with imagery. I often have powerful dreams, they often seem to me to be place that are real.

i'm not saying that i think your opinion is wrong or right... but i don't think that they mean nothing... if they were nothing they why are they so strong?? why do so many people see these figures?? why do they only happen when something "differant" happens in that persons life?? i dont know what they are or what their purpose is, but i believe that there is a purpose and its up to us to figure it out... i believe they're trying to tell us something... the first time my mom ever saw one it got her off of drugs... she said death was comming for her... so i do believe that they have some sort of message that they are trying to convey to us. some bad, and maybe some good... thanks to that first figure my mom saw i got to grow up knowing my mom, because the path that she was headed she would've died before my 1st birthday and i would've never been able to have any memories of her....

Can you describe in greater detail what they look like? Or is it just a dark figure wearing robes...

All dreams have meanings, be it what you have seen, or done during the day or even predicting the future! I have heard of things invading dreams but not this!

Next time this happens let me know!

well... mostly i just see a black robe that completly covers the figure(s) from head to toe... but every once in awhile you'll see some part of them. like the "dream" that i had the other night where its standing in the middle of what i presume to be a desert i could see its jaw bone on the left side (its right) and its pointer and thumb finger on the same side. both features looked human like (nothing bazar or unearthly). my mother once had a "dream" of one that showed her its face. i'm trying to remember exactly what it looked like. She painted it, but that was in 2003/2004. If im not mistaken it had human features too, but one of its eyes was sewn shut and the other was like a small blue star. i cant remember what its mouth or nose looked like.... i do belive that it's mouth was sewn shut too... i've only seen them walking once in these "dreams" and they seemed to have a normal human like stride... slow, but nothing unatural about it. they seem to be very patient also. so much so that ive layed there for several hours waiting for them to go away but they just stood in the same spot until i opened my eyes, then the whole sence fade into the darkness of my room. i've been having them every night for the past week or so (along with some insomnia....) last night was the first night i didn't have one... i'll be sure to let you know when i have another... that night i had the "dream" of the one in the desert i drew a quick sketch of.. i could put that on her too if you would like...

One of my first memories is of this monster beside my bed. He was standing there staring at me, and he was playing this drum (like in a marching band; the one they hang from there neck and play at waist level). The beat was two slow drums (slow like morse code slow, or long, whatever it's called), four fast ones, then it would start all over again. never ever forgot that drum beat, and i was like 2-3 at the time. I've never hallucinated while in sleep paralysis, either. it's just the paralysis. I'm kinda thankful for that actually.

Do you reckon you could do your best to imitate that drum pattern somehow? It could have been some kind of drum beat that can induce trances.

There\'s an interview at freedomvideo.org\'s blogspot section with a guy named John, who claims to have had contacts with benevolent, \"black hooded beings.\"

Here is an excerpt and photo from that interview,

\"So to summarize, I encountered what you would call, an abduction, by physical benevolent or malevolent beings. However, I filmed a little of everything…i.e. Orbs, rods, 4th dimensional beings, and many of your standard flying disks.

All (dozens) except 2 UFOs were filmed in broad daylight. The Michigan footage is different yet just as bizarre. It would appear that much of my footage from there also contains a 10 to 12 foot black hooded being...

I don’t pretend to know what ALL of this is, but I do know what ALL of this means. Whatever is helping me is doing just that…HELPING. Do you think anyone would care to listen to me without my super-natural offerings?\"

I have no idea if this makes sense but the drum beat went

ab, ab, ab, abbab, ab, ab, abbab, ab.............there are only two tones, which sound like ones just the drum getting hit a little harder than the other. What else. I think the guy was brown.no hair. Definately a monster tho. but It's all good cause dad showed him what's up.
Oh yeah! Time! each individual ab takes 1 second, but the first half of that is silence so as to be in tune. the abbab is the same thing essentially, but with another b crammed in the middle (the tune, or the beat of the drum, quckens a little here to accommodate the extra be while keeping the beat continuous).
I feel ridiculous writing all this about a drum beat but I remember it since i was two, from a boogeyman...It COULD mean something.
I just remembered. if you wanna picture the ab as hand clapping, it would sound like the clapper off the commercial. It's like the clap of when the old lady's in bed and she claps the light off and rolls over. I think i might have enough edits.

i don't make that beat ever. Scares me a little bit. Its scary...Scares the crap out of me actually. Like being woken up by static at max volume. Not loud, but just freaky.

The only time I've ever seen a black robed figure was once when I was awoken by a strange almost industrial fan sound filling my room. I'm usually a very light sleeper and being an insomniac, if i wake up during the night it takes hours to fall back to sleep, so I found it unusual that when I turned and saw this figure in a black hooded robe which was very tall, maybe about 6'5", my reaction was to close my eyes tightly and try to calm my fear. The next thing I knew it was morning and I obviously had fallen back to sleep after seeing this thing. Very unusual for me. The fear I felt still comes back when I think of that, and the strange whirring heavy fan sound I heard.

interdimensional light beings indeedy woo.

for light energy bodies be them angelic or human in nature, to travel the lower dimensions of thought/energy/vibration frequencies, notably the void, one must wear appropriate attire, like a really big badass robe of literal darkness these are the dudes that attempt to guide lost souls from the hell-places. negotiations with lower astrals within such places is also very enjoyable. on the plus side its really rather amusing when your somewhat stoned and logically minded friend whom your giving a glimpse into your future thinks your death.
it'd be really cool to have some badass scythe but im not sure if were allowed to go that far! anyway, some of these dudes actually are demons, note the feeling you get off them.
regardless most of the demonic lower astrals are co-operative now anyway. your family soul-line or whatever probably has kinship with these peeps id imagine its why you dream of them. women tend to be far better empathises with ghosts than men. thats im totally a demon hunter dude muhuhahahahahahahaha

Once I saw a black hooded figure. We were on a ghost hunt doing things to try and call spirits at a very old grave yard that always has activity. I almost always see these things that look kinda like the rancor from starwars jedi only the size of a shoe. They are always eating black mist. And if we ever see something they are always eating at its trail.

Then we saw the figure far off and started walking toward it. I remember this well. It was holing a twisted staff that was light brown and black like it had been burnt in places. On top if the staff sat one big red glowing ball that sat on top of two glowing black black balls. Most of my group ran when we heard it call but myself and two others stayed. I remember it calling me to it. It promised me power and knowledge I could never dream of. We kept walking till we were within 15 feet or less. I wanted what it promised pretty bad. Then one of the girls that was holding my arm very tightly tripped. When she fell she almost took me with her. When I looked at her was the first time I looked away from the red orb since it had started talking. I picked her up and all I could think was run. All three of us ran till we got to the cars and did not stop driving till we were miles away.

I still do not know why I ran but sometimes wish I would not have. It feels like I may have missed a big chance now but the fear I felt the instant I looked away made me run. I do not usually get scared like that and regret it now. None of the people that ran could understand anything that the figure said. They claim that when it talked it was just a lot of high pitched screeching noises. The two that stayed with me say it was more musical but still high pitched and sounded like another language. I heard it talk in plain English with a deeper voice than what any of them heard. I wonder why none of them heard it but me.

And the rancor looking things that I see all the time acted strange around it as well. There was one at each side of him but they were not feeding. I have never seen them not feeding or moving to a place to feed but these just stood there beside it. Any help on this would be appreciated as well.

Hope I helped instead of confusing you more.

Ok people 1 question i have is this...

With all these stories or happenings, it seems to me as they are observing or showing us something. The don't seem to step out of these boundary's, and in the end it leaves you with more questions then answers.

my recommendation is this.
-remember that your thoughts are a form of energy ( just like your whole body so try not to waste energy on them or with them)
-try to remember that everything is frequency ( I'm sure everyone knows that when you are happy time flies unnaturally, and when you are down it goes much slower, so higher and lower freq can also be said to be rate of speed o are moving through time and space) so try to wash away the negtative to let your body return to its higher frequancy faster so you may be in a sense stronger.
-If it or they return try to remember that your dreams are not real, they are only energy being focused into the experiance. so now you should have full control over your domain and should be able to manipulate them or get them to do what you want them to do.
-then after you have done these few steps you may find out if they are your own making on a subconsciouse level or truly something outside of your world coming in and doing something.

this may be a long way to do go about this but it can work i am sure of it, through focus and impeccability, remember you are even stronger then you can imagine in your dreams and this being a new law to go by in your dreams if you remember should give you answers.

oh and tell me this, is it not true that you can being doing anything in your dream and it would seem like the proper thing to do in everyday life? for example i have a friend and he had a dream where his dog talked to him and he said to himself yeah man! this is the norm in his dream but not cause he did think so but cause his dream state thought so... do ya get me?

reading all of this is sending chills down my neck for i have this story bottled up for so long and nobody ever believes me. my mother has told me that when i was young about up until the age of 6 i would talk to things in our house she thought i was just playing being an imaniginative kid. (i have no recollection of this) but she said i started creeping her out when i talked of a little boy that was outside that i played with. she said i talked about him as if he were real sharing stories about his life. she casuallly dismissed it as an imaginary friend. until i started talking about a mean man. who i saw in the walls of my room when i was about 8 or so when we were re doing this old storage section of our house that is now my bedroom. my sister has taken my old room. im sorry im getting off topic. what i wanted to talk about is this woman or what i believe is a woman. when i was young this is the pretty much the only thing i remember of my young childhood. i had woken up for some reason i believe i was 4 or early 5 i know this because my sister was born when i was 5 and we shared the room after she was born. but i had woken up and i looked around my room. it didnt feel like my room it was a very strange feeling. but im looking at my ceiling and then i glance down towards my doorway and there is a black figure standing in my doorway. standing but hovering it was very strange to look at she was all black. a black robe and a black hood not covering her face completly i could see a faint white outline of a face. this scared me #tless of course. pardon my french. so i covered my face with the blanket for about 5 minutes just so scared. my parents room was right next to mine and i remeber having a few incidents like this before but they are verrry fuzzy and when they happened i would run into my parents room. but this time i couldnt she was blocking the doorway. so i laid there not knowing what 2 do. i lifted the covers off my face and looked again to see if she had gone. no she was still there staring at me. i felt this calling to get up and go 2 her. i slowly got out of bed and walked towards her it was if she transparent but not completly i could very very very faintly see through her. i walked up closer and i felt a sence of extreme calming. as i got closer her face became clearer. it was a whitish gray and her eyes seemed to look right through me. as if she knew i was there but i wasnt real. i got closer until i was standing maybe 2 or 3 feet from her i will never forget her face. narrow no eyebrows. and there appeared to be no nose. she was smiling when i got close like she was happy because she knew i could see her. she lifted her arms slightly and i could see a very slender hand. her fingers were like pencils but they didnt look unhealthy. she stood there and just stared at me her smile was very disturbing but i wasnt scared at all it was a very wide smile with no teeth it was just black inside. i stood there for a long time. she was trying to communicate with me. but not with words it more like a psykik communication. but i guess my brain hadnt developed enough to understand her or what she wanted to tell me. it was very late i would say about 2 or 3 am. and my mom had gotten up to go to the bathroom i heard her door open and it scared me. i looked back at my bed wondering if i should run and get back in before i got in trouble for being up too late. but i decided to stay and talk with the strange being. but i looked back and she looked at my mom and then dissapeared. my mom had just walked out of the room by that point. it all happened very fast me looking around and her looking at my mom like she was evil and wanted to kill her or something. my mom half awake says honey what are you doing. i told her i was talking to the woman who was in my doorway. and i guess thats when my mom started to think i was crazy because shortly after my sister was born she took me to a shrink and got me put on some pills. which i hated.
