I pretended I didn't see him and he left
scared me s*%$less
Weird! - Once when I was 17, I had an experience that was so bizarre, I've never seen another paranormal story that is even remotely similar. So I usually just keep it tucked away because it doesn't apply to pretty much all the stories I hear. But you and your husband's experience actually made something go "bing!" in my head.
So I was 17, visiting colleges in Arizona. And visiting some cousins, with a slight detour to check out the Grand Canyon. In one of the hotels I was staying at, which didn't seem very old, I had an experience so strange that I still struggle just explaining on a basic level what happened.
It's late at night, I'm totally asleep. But at one point I became half-conscious - I vividly recall imagery of going around the outside of the hotel I was in, moving *very* fast. It didn't feel like it was me, but I was definitely seeing this. Then I somehow become aware of my body laying in bed. At this point I've started to give an unpleasant moan, as if very afraid. Two awarenesses going on simultaneously - one is me lying in bed, and the other is skirting the perimeter of the hotel (this was a very large place) - I can feel that I am the destination. The closer "I" get to me, the more intense the moaning becomes. I'm in bed, still half-asleep but quite aware that something is coming after me, getting closer and closer. Meanwhile I'm not "seeing" this something, but I am experiencing it. Seeing what it sees, feeling what it feels. At first it felt like emptiness. But as it got closer it felt primal, beastial. The feeling grew in intensity as it got closer, and its speed seemed to increase. It felt as light as the wind. Soon me/it zipped in through the window, and I burst out of sleep right at that point, just as this thing would have came upon me.
I'm near certain that there was some kind of entity out there and I had tapped into it somehow. Perhaps this is what angered it, or perhaps I picked up on its intentions and "spectated" it as a defense mechanism or something. Maybe I should start a thread on it, I know there's some people on ATS who could provide some interesting answers...
I never saw anything when I woke up, but it definitely seems like dreams - or the state of being unconscious - has something very important to certain types of entities. I don't think what I experienced was a "Top Hat Man", it felt far too sinister and beastial for that - plus I never actually saw it. But there must be something we have that they want - or something they find irresistible.edit on 4-10-2010 by Son of Will because: (no reason given)

Firstly, I will say that I have seen this lately too. There is nothing to be afraid of, intimidating though this figure may seem. I don't know who he is nor what he wants, but I've never felt anything malevolent when he's about. I have felt on occasion that he has *tried* to inspire fear by standing right next to me and staring me in the face, but that's the extent of it. You might even get a cool draft blowing past or a cold feeling on your arm, shoulder, or back, but no matter what sensations you feel, there is nothing to fear. I don't have the feeling that this is a demon because with the fear you and your family have expressed, a demon would have taken up residence in one of you already. That fear response is the greatest weakness one can have. Get rid of it.
Please understand that all things are just simply expressions of energy. When you change the polarity of your energetic expression, you change the attraction/repulsion of other energies as well. Think this way and maybe you will understand: Like attracts like. If you want positive, pleasant, happy energies, you must express/espouse/shine those yourself. Fear attracts fear. Fearful energies can spin around me as much as they like, but they are not strong enough to cause me any misery at all.
Change your perspective/polarity. You'll have less problems in all walks of life.

To the OP. I have come to refer to these things as watchers. I do not know all the answers but I have had a great deal of experience with them. you can pm me if you like.
Baron Samedi (Baron Saturday, also Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi) is one of the Loa of Haitian Voodoo. Samedi is a Loa of the dead, along with Baron's numerous other incarnations Baron Cimetière, Baron La Croix, and Baron Kriminel. He is the head of the Guédé family of Loa, or an aspect of them, or possibly their spiritual father. 'Samedi' means 'Saturday' in French. His wife is the Loa Maman Brigitte.
He is usually depicted with a top hat, black tuxedo, dark glasses, and cotton plugs in the nostrils, as if to resemble a corpse dressed and prepared for burial in the Haitian style.
