This will be a very short post. this morning at about 530 I went to bed. I was up previously for 18 hours and was tired. As I was laying to bed I saw this shadow. The shadow literally walked through my bedroom door, walked past my bed and continued on it's merry way. This shadow had very heavy density to it. Was this a hallucination or the real thing?

The shadow was of decently tall person. Imagine a shadow in a three dimensional aspect and you will have what I saw.

How would you expect any of us to know what that was? We weren't there and you have nothing to show us in the forms of video or pictures.

Not sure how you are looking for people to answer you.

Your eyes can play all kinds of funny tricks on you when you're tired...
who knows....
you are probably the best judge on this one...

I agree with Kro, dude. When the shadow or whatever walks up and grabs you by the short hairs, get back to us wouldya?

This sounds like your typical shadow person sighting. I personally think that you may have been overtired and your eyes played a trick on you.

Could be a shadow person or could be a case of hypnagogic hallucination. Only you can say which it was.

The mind/brain is just amazing isn't it, and what we only use 8-10% of it? I would say you have about a 99% chance it was sleep deprivation causing the visuals. I had a childhood friend who had true insomnia, and he said he would start seeing things around 18-24 hrs depending on how much food and pepsi he had. He called them the shadow spiders

I agree with you and also think that it could be a hypnagogic hallucination because it is the state
of transition when we are going off to sleep.

I also often have such kind of hallucinations.

Me too, although mine are hypnopompic (transition to waking). And like the poster above described, mine sometimes look like giant shadow spiders or shadow figures standing by the side of my bed

Interesting :O I woke up in deepsleep and saw massive spiders in my room, I got a panic attack and run away. They were all in my room, in diffrent places and sizes(some were over 1 meter in diameter). Scary to say the least
