Although, I meditate and have attempted, in the past, to project outside myself, I don't consciously accept as fact that this is what is actually happening. You see, I have a very vivid imagination, and so, I cannot truly discern what, (beneath my closed lids), is external, and what is being generated by my imagination...

Do you practice astral projection,
do you have good contact with your spirit guides?
Also I have noticed that when I've tried to move out of body (or use my third eye) in the presence of these, they instantly change appearance into what they really look like, while other times while wondering in the astral, I've seen similar looking things that remain black and shadowy. This is confusing the heck out of me.

i've never really understood whats so negative or scary about shadow figures. i've been encountering them since the 8th grade (im now 25) and i've never had anything even remotely close to a negative feeling from them. i've been afraid due to waking up with a shadow next to my bed, because i was startled, but they never have shown me any reason to be scared. they feel more protective than anything else. i've seen the hooded one twice, i've seen the "top hat man" once, and then just a couple months ago i saw a human figure shadow with big wings. they all have the same characteristics, blacker than black..they seem to suck in the darkness around them to create some sort of shape...and they take off once you've noticed them. the nights when i see these things, i have not been asleep and then woken up, i have not been meditating, or doing any drugs for that matter! lol. so i dont know how or why they manifested. there was absolutely no fear with the winged shadow though. i wasnt even startled by it...the winged one was different than the other 2...it didnt seem to mind that i was looking directly at it.

Hello! I know there are A LOT of threads about this phenomena already, but I feel I'm on to something, and I'm closer to understanding. I'm still very confused by what these are, as everyone has different theories.
I've researched online, and no one has a solid explanation. Just want to say that I am perfectly sane, and only come into contact with it while I attempt to meditate. Experiences with these beings are very common and defined, so no "Maybe you should see a psychiatrist" comments, if you don't mind!
The reason I am wondering is that there seems to be one interfering with my meditation, but almost speeds up time it takes to get "vibes" (within 20 minutes) while thinking about this being, but the vibrations/waves seem to coming from him/her (not my own energy). I have tried to speak to it, but it doesn't seem to want to communicate verbally, but it definitely understands what I'm saying. When trying to communicate with it - which I really feel is a bad idea, but I can't seem to get rid of it - I feel waves of different temperatures and moods coming from it. But whenever I try to open my eyes to stare at it, it tries to move just out of site so I can barely see it, but I can sort of see a wispy black mass and sometimes it's very very dense and black, and other times somewhat translucent. I have asked to stare at it face to face ...I'm never doing that again (despite being skittish and shy, it seemed more than willing to do this).
I'd like to hear everyones experiences with these things.
