The question most of you are ignoring is "why is this just happening in her bf's room"? Why not in all the other rooms she uses?

thank you for all of your responses. perhaps i'm being misunderstood, so please allow me to reiterate.

i did a lot of research prior to creating this thread and, yes, i happened upon the concept of floaters in the process. i did considerable reseach into this topic as well, to make sure this isn't what i am experiencing. i even did a google image search and found many pictures of what floaters look like. they are NOT EVEN CLOSE to what i am experiencing. there are no floating spots/dots/specks, no strings, no "webs," no flashes of light, no other floater-y things, and certainly nothing that even remotely resembles any of the images i found or the descriptions i read. you see, if i thought that floaters were a possible culprit, my question would have been answered a long time ago through my own research, and i wouldn't have had to bother with creating this thread and wasting anyone's time. but it's NOT floaters. that's the crazy part! so in summation, no floaters.

furthermore, they are not closed-eye visualizations. i also know what those are, as does everyone - they are the weird different-colored shapes and blobs and forms that you see with your eyes closed, especially at night when you're in bed with the heebie-jeebies. and it's not that either. i haven't found anything, in my research, that sounds like what i'm observing.

what i am experiencing, i have seen many times before, as has everyone. but the difference is that the situation that normally causes what i am seeing is not present. so it doesn't make sense. what i am experiencing looks JUST like someone is waving something in front of my face with my eyes closed. i see the SHADOW of movement in front of my face; it looks no different from any other time i've had my eyes closed and something has moved past my face. if anyone has ever had their eyes closed in a well-lit room and someone walks past right in front of them, they see that something in front of them moved because there is a sort of shadowy blur that they see behind their eyelids. does ANYONE know what i'm talking about? go outside, close your eyes and face the sun, and wave your hand in front of your face from one side to the other. you know that dark shadow you see moving from one side of your vision field to the other, behind your eyelids? THAT is what i am seeing. however, when i open my eyes, there is nothing there. nothing was moving in front of my face. yet there was something casting that shadow. and it was nothing like floaters or closed-eye visualizations.

and besides, as the person above me said, the occurrence of floaters or closed-eye visualizations does not at all explain the fact that this phenomenon is only observed in one room of one apartment.

If you think something is there place a bowl of salt under his bed. It sounds weird but it works.

It might be your third eye opening.

Honestly, I went through something similar a few years ago, and kept seeing things moving around when I closed my eyes. I then began to try focusing on what I was seeing, and I began seeing all these images of stuff going on like a movie show. It isn't like dreaming, or day dreaming, I'm awake watching this, and it is very random, nothing that I know or experience regularly. I see this in my bedroom laying down. It is kind of dark, but with plenty of light to see.

I am still not quite sure of what to make of this, but it isn't something I think I need to fear.

Poet, this creepily mimics my experiences so I must agree with this assessment. This began for me when I turned 33, and evolved over a period of months into what I'm stuck calling "movies" when I closed my eyes. Never in color and always backlit, these shadows began telling stories, or the "movies" as I call them, of the destruction of mankind.

The blessing, if you can call it that, is that the paranormal situations I had periodically encountered up to this point caused absolutely none of the fear they once had. To illustrate how scared I can become by a flipping movie, I turned Paranormal Activity into Aerobic Activity. I sat a total of four minutes, and jogged around the house while my boyfriend emceed the event. I was into the story, the characters and the direction. But when that camcorder panned, I jogged, jumped and paused profusely to catch my breath. Then I watched the sequel while sipping Gatorade. But since these movies began, there is a doubtless fearlessness I exhibit any and every time I have a visitor, and I never imagined I could get to that place. Of course I never imagined posessing such an admirable fearlessness, while simultaneously spraining my ankle watching Paranormal Activity III because it was so damn freaky.

You may have to hold on for this ride. Feel free to PM me...

I have the exact thing happen to me in my bedroom at night. I'm not a perv or kidding, but I get these after I cum. So maybe it is at her boyfriends bedroom after they have sex? I've been to the dr and she had no clue what I was talking about. Of course I didn't tell her it was after I have sex. Maybe it is something to do with blood pressure on the optic nerve. It is sort of scary.. For me it is like a one way wind shield wiper effect of a shadow passing over my eye over and over. I'll usually get up walk around some and and then lay back down eventually falling asleep.

I had a similar situation happening in an apartment that I lived in that was brand new. I went for weeks without telling anyone, and then mentioned it to a neighbor that was a good friend.

She told me she had a similar experience, and told me that she sent the shadows she saw packing, and I think they landed in my place...........

There is more to the story, but perhaps you should be asking your neighbors if they have been seeing anything else as well.

Always check for medical reasons first, but, I will tell you that what my friend experienced, and then what I did, made the coincidence...well let's say, something paranormal.

Interesting account.

May I ask, what kind of light source(s) are you dealing with? Does this phenomenon only occur with artificial light?

Perhaps you could ask more people to sit in the room and close their eyes, then tell you if they experience anything out of the ordinary.

hey ive recently had that,i was actually seeing shadows around me.It was like people were walking around in my house, but i replied because i know it acutally was of sleep deprivation i done some research while i hadn't been sleeping an realised you need sleep to function,an i looked at the parts of the brain that start to slow down an or stop releasing chemicals. I had been awake for 4 or 5 days with insomnia,or you could say a deeeeep passion for reading an drinking coffee to keep reading haha,so i suggest to anybody who thinks seeing shadows would be cool dont try it ,i was put on the edge of my sanity while i was going to sleep, there were hands around me trying to grab me an it was like i could hear voices an people speaking to me. I am fine now but it still makes you think...i have seen an felt apparitions such as ghosts or spirits,but ill save that for my own post

Hey there, did you ever get an answer for your experience?
I've recently only just started to look for others who have experienced the same thing.

I have these too, my first was when I was about 5 or 6, had several through the years (while laying in bed and in the mornings) I'm 53 now. I think I have realised what it is. and I have to ask you do the shadows always move from the right to the left, I've seen white lights go in the other direction too, but only once that I remember.

I think I know what it is, but it is a very woo subject.

Look forward to your reply

I too can relate to the phenomena. Exact same thing almost word for word. The only thing I can really add is that before I close my eyes, I know when I will see them. Its a....feeling I guess. I don't really know how to explain it. Something feels different. It's pretty random and it doesn't happen every night. I usually only see a few at once and it's almost always followed by very vivid dreams.
