I don't intend to be going out there by myself anytime soon. I have tried it several times now, and each time its the same. I don't think its a ghost.. I don't know, its a hard feeling to explain...

I know what your talking about. even driving in my car from my girlfriends house to my house late at night..there is something following me. presence isnt in my car..but outside around my car. more or so above if anything. i would advise you to NOT look into it...UNLESS they try to contact you. Even than, if you have fear...its not a good or will be a good experience.

I love the night.
It's easy to creep yourself out at night tho.
Sometimes I swim late at night and start thinking there might be piranha in the water.

It's an above ground pool.

It's just the night, that's the way it is. That's why I love it.

Weird to read this post....I thought I was just losing my mind...or whatever.....but I have had this odd "sensation" that when I walk past a hall...that there will be a figure there...watching me.....I can see it in the "mind's eye", but thankfully....nothing is there. I keep telling myself that I need to stop reading conspiracy theory websites...that I am giving myself the "willies"....well.....I am not alone in my woogies. I hope that means I am still somewhat sane.

I love to chunky dunk at night! Not so sure I will be doing any of that anytime soon! There ain't no easy way to run up a ladder and off a deck! Seriously though, I have always loved to swim at night too, but I can't see that happening until I get over this feeling...

Been a star gazing night person my whole life. It was not uncommon for me to sit outside at night alone, even listening to music with headphones on. Wasn't scared.

Now, I live in an urban area and have had an issue with people prowling the alleys lately so that's some of it. My partner works the night shift, and I usually do most of my "alternative" reading / radio listening alone so I recognize those two things come into play but I've never been an easy scare at all.

I've totally been uneasy and nervous outside by myself for probably over a year now. That "watched" feeling. Sometimes when taking my dog out I have to fight the urge to try and hurry her along. Have much more trouble sleeping too and I would characterize myself as a heavy sleeper. Could be old age creeping in, upset over world events, personal events in life, topics I research, but I know myself and this isn't part of my personality so it bothers me. This exact thing has been on my mind but I'm frustrated about why that is.

I always have a(n) (un)healthy sense of paranoia about me. In the past two months, I've upgraded my security system from an 8 camera system to a 16 camera system of which 15 cameras are currently working.
My work area is covered by SEVEN cameras inside. Three terabytes of DVR capability on the camera server allow up to 3.5 months of recorded activity. There are two burglar alarms on my house. Two outside sirens, two inside sirens. The cameras and alarm system are connected to a battery backup system. Steel bars cover the windows on the inside - each door has a built in deadbolt, and an additional deadbolt I added.
Outside security lights are in place, also with solar powered motion detection security lights along the perimeter.
There are smoke detectors. There are glass break detectors. There are carbon-monoxide detectors.
The partial reason for this security is the line of work I do and the monetary value of what I am liable to have at any given time. The secondary reason is that I want to be able to see my kids at all times whenever they are outside playing - behind a fence of course.
Especially, in the past few weeks I have felt unsafe if not at home - inside. My kids have felt the same thing (ages 7 and 5) and on weekends would periodically beg to go home....even in the middle of a movie @ the theater. It's not as bad as it was - yet there is a certain element in the air of something being "unsafe" - just like you can tell in the summer when fall is on the way...there's that certain almost imperceptible chill in the air.
Having said this, it feels like a threat from which there isn't much escape, such as (for example, and metaphorically only) a large predator - or a dangerous storm. I feel like if we can just hunker down & not be seen, or brave the storm till it blows over we will be fine. My wife says I'm just paranoid. I tell her that paranoid people have to deal with fewer surprises. Preparing for danger when there is none, is at it's worst - still a wise thing in the long run. Not being prepared for danger when it is imminent is foolish by any standards.

if it helps the thread at all, i wanted to throw in my experiences. i too, have noticed something different about the dark. just lately, it started sometime late in feb and peaked end of feb early march. i go out to sit on my front step and smoke at night too, and every single night for like, 2 weeks, every time i went out to smoke my dog would cause a problem (she was acting funny in general during this time period but this was every single night). always wanting me to come in the house, and if i let her come to the door she would stand there sniffing and looking around, like she was hunting something out. some nights she would try and go outside to start hunting out whatever it was she was smelling or sensing. she hasn't done this now for a few nights, probably 2 or 3. and im not feeling as uncomfortable in the dark now either. so hopefully that means it will pass soon for others too!

Here's an idea....can you just sit with this feeling? Sit on your porch, put on a light, keep a pet nearby, anything to feel safe, but just try to be in the moment.

Our logical side (fed by all the good fodder we gather from TV, ATS, etc. :-) goes to Fight or Flight when we get these feelings, but if you can assure that you really are physically safe, then it is time to try opening up your other senses.

Call it mind's eye, third eye, spirit, sensitivity, whatever. But maybe whatever feelings you are getting are not terrible. Maybe the message will be good, interesting, helpful. What is really scary is just sitting with it, but as you practice this will get easier.

I often have those feelings - I also live alone out in the woods :-) I've found that if I take a moment to center, take a deep breath, and just "listen" I can get a gut feeling of what's going on.

I believe my ancestors visit me, specifically my grandmother. The other night I got a WAY CREEPY feeling that someone was in the house. I took a moment to calm down, got out of my "thinking brain" and just let the senses take over. What I got grandmother is here, watching over me to keep me safe, but she knows that showing herself in some way would totally freak me out so she's not going to do anything that would scare me. This realization made me feel calm and protected and I went on with my evening.

Call me crazy, call me a liar, call me whatever you want, but I know what is true to me and I'm cool with it.

My husband works midnights, and I have taken to sleeping on the couch. I don't feel at ease sleeping in the bedroom by myself anymore and I leave the lamp and the tv on all night!

This is very odd that you say that. My when my girlfriend has her kid over (every other week type thing) she will sleep in her daughters bedroom a couple times during the week. EVERY time she does that, i feel extremely uneasy as if something is waiting for me to fall asleep. I keep the cats in the room, since they don't sleep at night.

As an older lady here and non hunter LOL I think fear is fear and well we could acquire the spirit of it sorry
to say.
We took things in as a child with a kind of simple faith. Yes, a clear night sky filled with stars and planets
is a lovely sight. Now, with knowledge, one wonders..and maybe even fears attracting these unknowns to
us since we study them so much so to speak. At my age my eyes may play even more tricks on me but
yeah, seems for a few years or a decades that I too have noticed that I feel less and less secure. Every thing
seems to be polluted even our minds..sigh..surfice
it to say we need to return to our first love..Jesus ( don't mean to offend anyone here ) and what he can
provide for us in these times of turmoil and deception and trouble and whatever threats seen or unseen
may exist. I think if we feed our minds and souls and spirits with good things the scary things will become
much less they real or imagined.

I also smoke on my deck at night, and can't really say I'm scared
as my little Pitbull romps about the yard, and I truely believe he can sense
things I cannot and he does bark and see things I don't .

That being said, I do feel that big changes are on the horizen,
as if we all stand at a preface in time, Feeling the human race has made
a very bad turn and is off the highway about to turn over in a very black ugly , deep ditch.

We have gotten so hung in the events of the day, that we have lost our connection
to our fellowman.Compassion and mercy, seem to be a bad thing.
While judgement and opinions on any given matter seems to be so selfserving
and condecending from whoever is speaking.

Maybe this is what it's supposed to be and we truely are about to change the world,
OR the world is about to change us.

Someone that is greater than us is watching........

Ps: I now have an owl that sits by my bedroom window hooting all night ,
even into the late morning hours.....what's he talking about......

Its only the shadow /creatures,
right now the veil between the dream/ psychic world and this world is very thin at the moment with the new awareness and conscious shift happening this is all part of our awakening

The old myths and legends of the little people the pixies, sprites and other mythical creatures have been recorded in folk stories from all 4 corners of the world ...what happened to these creatures ?
In the legends it seems they just disappeared out of sight.
maybe they did not go away maybe they simply become hidden because we lost our power to access this psychic dream world.

Our power is returning and that is why sometimes you can catch a shadow of something scuttling across the floor or sense that there is something watching you ....I too have noticed this change in the last year and at first I thought I had mice in the house.

There is nothing to be alarmed about as these creatures even though we all share the same space cannot enter into our dimension...that is why there are no photo's and no concrete evidence when people say they have seen such creatures and sometimes call them UFO's from inter-dimensional worlds
rules of the universe nothing can exist with in this dimension until it is needed and then it needs to be mass consciously realized through us .... for it to be made real into existence

We only fear what we do not understand ...

Probably just your mind being unreasonable. I always feel a bit weird and anxious on Fridays. It's something I 'noticed' and now can't kick. And It puzzles me because I know I'm being unreasonable and crazy, but I really don't like Fridays from 5pm or there abouts onwards.

I am crazy though, so there's a difference to others in this thread

I would like to pose a different possibility than most have. The possibility that comes into my mind does not involve anything paranormal or mythical creatures. Although, those statements and thoughts definitely can feed the fear.

I do this to myself at times. Could be coming up from a dark basement; taking trash out to the alley late at night; walking into a dark woods; sitting into a dark car; or simply walking into my bedroom.

Our mind is a wonderful and beautiful thing. Our mind can also be a scary place. I can scare myself. I can make myself believe there may just be a ghostly spirit right behind me. Cold chills from my hair follicles to the tips of my toes.

I do not consciously do this on purpose, but it does happen somewhat often. I just have to then think about it, and question myself. Did the thought enter my mind before I got this feeling? Or did I have the feeling first, and then thought about the paranormal possibilities? The common answer to that question, is that I had a thought first, followed by the feeling (which my mind created).

This is just my opinion based on my own experiences, but I think that you have turned this into a common thought. I think that it is possible that you can go outside; sit on your porch; look up at the moon; just as you always have. However there is a difference now. Now, right before you get to that comfortable place in your mind; right before you start to calm down and enjoy the solitude of the moment; right before that ever so sweet peaceful feeling enters; in comes that thought. The thought is followed by the feeling that it created.

My personal solution, is just to realize this, as it is happening. Try to control your mind, once these thoughts come. The tricky part about the mind though, is that it is hard to keep the initial thoughts out. As soon as you think about not having a thought....well, there it is. Mind over Matter. Just try to understand where the feeling is actually coming from.

~Disclaimer: I very well could be completely insane and may not know what I am talking about.~
~This is just my opinion.~

I can tell you that the second time I tried to go out there, I sat down and told myself that I was being silly, I had done this a million times and there was nothing to be afraid of, my door was only a few feet away... that didn't work, I got a tingle up my spine and felt like I was going to vomit so again, I ran back into the house. Funny thing, my dogs were right there with me and were acting fine, it wasn't a comfort.

My husband and I have recently discussed putting up some motion lights at least. Ours is the only house out here that doesn't have a security light. We never wanted one as it interferes with the I may have to go ahead and check on getting one installed.

TL;DR: You're not alone.

When I was younger, about five or seven, I was very uneasy in the dark. Where I live isn't really in the woods, but behind my house is a few hundred acres of forest - and when I was little my dad would have me walk my two dogs out back so they could go to the bathroom.

This absolutely terrified me. They'd stop and look around suddenly, probably only sensing a deer nearby (we have a lot around), but I'd swear it was something else. Eventually I was tired of feeling scared so I sat out back in front of the woods, in total darkness, with my two puppies running around. After a few minutes I calmed down and ended up staying outside for about half an hour, much to the worry of my folks.

Up until a few months ago, the darkness never bothered me again. I actually loved it; I'd go out often for walks down the road or to a nearby lake after midnight, sometimes to swim or chat with nearby friends. About a year ago I had a series of dreams that made me feel "awakened" and I've become spiritual.

A few months ago the fear came back about the night. I was in my room, around 10pm, when I felt complete and utter fear. I turned about and "sensed" something, my hair was on end, and my whole body had a very odd feeling. I ran up to our first floor, and just stared down the stairs to my room. The feeling got worse, and I ran up to our second floor, and did the same thing as if I couldn't help but look and wait. My folks came out of their room to see me standing there, shaking, pale, and crying and freaked out. Since then, the fear remains.

I'm 20, still living at home, and it makes no sense to me why I'd all of a sudden feel this way. The only thing that calms me is meditating or praying to an angel I saw in my initial dreams as I fall asleep, but the fear is still there, just subdued. It's very odd and doesn't happen everywhere, and seems to come out of nowhere (when not in my own place).

I haven't noticed an increase in my own anxiety or fear lately, but two things did come to mind:

A few nights ago, a friend of mine brought his teenage daughter over for a dinner party. She is blind, and has been since birth (I mention this because of the elevated sensitivity that accompanies blindness). Late in the evening, we stepped out into the garden to get some fresh air. At one point, I noticed that she had moved off to the side, at a slight but noticeable distance from everyone else; she was standing very still and extending her hand out into the air. She seemed deep in thought, so rather than disturb her I nudged her father and quietly inquired. He was surprised, too, and asked her if anything was the matter. She said the air felt different, thicker, and that she could swear it was almost "pulsating". I vividly remember her description, because it seemed so profound--she said that it felt like the air was breathing around her. I didn't know what to make of it at the time, but now I wish I'd inquired further, perhaps to find out if she'd noticed this before. I suspect from her reaction that this was a strange experience for her.

Also, my pup has not previously been fearful of stepping out into the garden by herself. Now, she stands at the door and won't move until I step out with her. She then seems to keep an eye on me as I wait for her. We have security cameras around the perimeter of the garden, and we have seen no wildlife or other obvious cause for distress or fright. I will admit that I feel uneasy as I wait for her in the darkness, but I hold my own imagination accountable for that.

I don't know what's changed, but it seems that several people (and animals, too) are noticing something strange. Very interesting.

wow...I thought it was just me. Before my dog died, one of my favorite activities was to sit out on my porch at night and catch a smoke while we watched the sky. We saw all sorts of awesome things. I too am a skywatcher from way back. I have been collecting books about the cosmos for years and have even raised a few stargazers. Starting late last year, whenever I went outside I would get this feeling of being watched. Not in the sense that there is a man in black sitting in a van across the street from my house but more along the line of someone had unscrewed the top off the planet and was peering in. I would walk to the store and feel the sky as an almost imposing thing, looming over me. The feeling would not subside until I was back indoors. I am a nightowl so many times I will find myself stepping out onto the porch during witching hours and I still feel that sense of foreboding after all these months. If anything, its stronger now.
